Ann Cheers New Legislation . AMI LANM5R9 Dear Ann Lafidwu I'm the mete are afl goad students,' *' * y the Y, active in «thl#t(cs and their dad and t «fe proud of them, The oldest boy ,is 17 and an ardent stamp col* lectof. In Septem* be* M seat away for some stamps which he law advertised In a mag. azlne. Three Ann tandem weeks after the stamps arrived he ..received a rather large envelope on which was written PERSONAL When he came from school 1 hand ed him the envelope and he opened CORRECTION AUCTION 301 $o. S«c«nd St. It FBI., DEO. 11;-; STINA O. PIKE ESTATI Albert H«tfe * fc,,, A WH. It In my presence. It contained a folder advertising photoirapnfl of nude women, trie sale price of these vulgar pictures was |i each. Two free samples were enclosed. A second folder de* oribed "home-movies for the crowd — fellas only, of course." There was also a perfume scented letter written on pink stationery. It was signed "Peggy." She offered a recording of her voice which could be played on a 78 rpm machine. The letter said, "I'll be speaking to you in the privacy'of your own roam - Just the two of us. My record plays for six wonderful minutes. The price is only $8. You'll never miss this small «mount and a girl in my position (•tuck In Hollywood with so many phonies) has to make a living somehow." My son looked at the material and said "My Lord what junk!" He threw everything in the waste has- ket. When he left the room I retrieved It because 1 wanted to show it to my husband and discuss with him a course of action. My husband suggested I send the material to you and ask for your advice. Please tell us what can be done to keep this filth out of our homes? It makes me sick to think that thousands of youths Scout-Tex ALL-AMERICAN By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeaiares Beauty Editor .Comes the time for Yuletide visits — days away from home, perhaps visiting classmates or a beau's family.

I've received identical material from others. Most of this Junk 'comes from California-some from New York. Smut peddling in a tSSO-mlllion- a*year racket. Until now, the 111- th-merchanti have been operating with a fairly free hand. Some attempts have been made to nail them but the law had no teeth- until recently. In the past the post office department was seriously handicapped because of a court ruling which held that a dealer in pornography could be prosecuted only In the city where the material was dropped in the mall, and not in the city where it was received, The last session of congress enacted a new law as a result of pressures from outraged parents and school and church authorities. This law authorizes the government to prosecute mailers of filthy material In any community where ,it is received. Parents are no longer obliged to- sit helplessly by while this garbage Invades their homes. There is lome thing that can be done an'd I urge all parents to cooperate by turning the material Over to the local post office authorities immediately upon receiving it. The postmaster will put it in the hands of the local United States district attorney for prosecution before a local judge and jury. The new law calls for a maximum penalty of a $5,000 fine and five years in prison for the first offense. A second offense means $10,000 and 10 years in prison. 1 would like to shout a personal halleluljah for this new piece of legislation. Now that the law is on our side, let's throw the book at these unconscionable low - lifes Who prey on America's teenage children. Dear Ann: The office where my husband works has a party every month for employes and then- wives. My husband is treasurer. Something always happens to the finances and he gets stuck. For example, last month a couple was unable to attend because of illness. They didn't let him know until it was too late to cancel the reservations. My husband had to pay for their dinners. Our income is not large. My husband is in no position to make enemies. How can he collect from these deadbeats? — PINCHED Either take the parties to a restaurant that will collect for the dinners on the spot or send a letter to all employes Informing them that unless their check is in your husband's hands 24 hours in advance, it will be assumed that they are not able to attend. CONFIDENTIAL TO ALTA •' MONITA: See a lawyer. Certainly a man must "let off steam" but a woman needs teeth In her mouth. This is no marriage. Wake up. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenageri if you read Ann Landers'-new booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope, (Ann Lander* will bt glad to help you with your problems.

It's a good idea not to take more luggage with you than you need, giving the impression that you will stay for the winter. Then too, there may not be room in the car for all your luggage to the embarrassment of the hostess. You'll make the best impression with the minimum of luggage, providing you have the essentials Don't just throw things in willy nilly, "just in case." Plan every. thing carefully. As one luggage look. designer, Murray Leeds sug gests, take the smallest bag you can without crushing your clothes, and you can find a bag for every occasion. "If it's a long visit the most practical bag is the 44-inch all-purpose to keep dresses wrinkle-free and hold your other needs. If an additonal bag is needed add a train case or hat box." This may give a better appearance, he fays, than two large bags although the 21 inch or 24 Inch suitcase are very practical weekend bags.
