Last week, we mentioned that she would entertain 40 classmates of the Austin High School class of 1956, who have held an annual get-together since their graduation. Soon after, Mrs. Verchota .was informed that other members of the class hadn't read the item carefully and thought the open house was for all 1956 AHS graduates. 'Tain't so— just those 40 who received invitations. * * • • ONCE AGAIN it's time to give us a ring on the telephone or a note in the mail if you'd like an item on THE HERALD page of Christmas notes next Wednesday. ' ' You have plenty of time, but don't wait until the deadline which is 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. If you're having guests or whatever your holiday plans are, add your bit to the list of holiday events. Phone if you like, leave the information at our office or send it through the mail, but do -let us hear from you. * • * • IT DOESN'T happen very often, so that's probably why it was so much fun for about 70 students who were invited to have lunch at the home of their teachers this week. , Mrs. Carol McGrath, who teaches fifth grade at Shaw School, and Miss Janet Dickson, sixth grade teacher at Ellis School, have adjoining apartments at 406 S.

The kids and teachers, too, enjoyed ail the activities which included boarding a chartered bus for a trip to the Skully and Carpenter Rest Homes, where the youngsters sang Christmas carols.

The biggest rock of all daughter is driving me out of my mind. Louise is vile-tempered, sassy and lazy. When she was two her father left us and I had must be in her head. |to go to work. She lived with a She envies her sisters because i succession of aunts and housekeep- they are "blissfully married." She moans because she has no man of her own. Well, she's welcome to mine. I'm not bitter- just experienced. Most marriages are far from the dream situations that the manless career women imagine them to be. I started o u t young and bright- eyed. My husband had nothing. I was patient »nd uncomplaining. My marriage has brought me very little happiness. It's been one crisis after another. My husband was busy with other women till he "reformed." In reality he got tired and worn out. Now he spends his time at lodge meetings, poker games or aaleep in front of tht TV. .The Rock has it good. She's free to come and go as she pleases. She eqros her own money and spends it as she sees fit. Perhaps she's missed some of the joys of marriage, but she's missed plenty of thj grief, too. No one can have it Ana Landers ers. I had an unsuccessful marriage when she was five. Her step-father was alcoholic and for four years our home was like a prison. Last year I married a wonderful man but Louise refuses to accept him because her step-father was so mean it left terrible scars on her mind. It has come to the point where we hardly speak a civil word to each other. Last night I asked her to sew a rip in her blouse and she said "Let the sleeve fall off. I don't care." I got so mad I almost slapped her. My husband's sister is childless. She has begged me to let Louise live with them. Louise wants to go. She visited there last summer and got along fine. They live 200 miles fromtjiere and there's a good high school in that city. Shall I say yes? - VIVIAN By all means let her go. You two need to be relieved of one another's company for a while. The pillar-to-post treatment got Louise off to a poor start. Her temper, sassiness and laziness are manifestations of insecurity. And a 16-year-old girl who'd rather let both ways. i her gl fall ff y^ . The career woman who « mis- ^ ^ ; arable because she .' alone might do well to look around at some of her married friends. Plenty You her 6 . of th«m are alone, too. - WIFE . I suggest you get outside help m g absence and learn what makes children hostile. With OF A FLOP DMT Ann: My If year • old some kulfht you should b« ablt to improve the relationship. It's pretty late in the game to es tablish lines of communication bu it may not be hopeless. Dear Ann: I'm writing this from work. It may not seem like much of a problem to you, but it's driv ing me nuts. The office furniture was recent ly re-arranged. An elderly gentleman bad his desk turned aroum so that we sit face to face, all day long. He smokes cigars, cig arettes and pipes incessantly. Th only time I get relief is when he goes to lunch. The constant smoke screen is making me sick. Can this be handled in a tactful way Help, please! — CHOKING TO DEATH Apparently the smoke-stack is addicted and asking him to cui down or out would be useless. Go directly to the person whose bright idea it was to change the furni tore and request the old arrange ment. CONFIDENTIAL TO BIZZY DIZZY: You sound too "popular' for your own good. Doesn' all that traffic wear out the rugs? Where's your mother? Does almost everyone have good time but you? If so, send for Ann Landers' new booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin ant a large, self-addressed, stampec envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to 1 help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of THE HER- i AID enclosing a stamped, self-ad-j dreued envelope.) 1 NEWS for WOMEN COMING tVENTS.
