Nate: Man, 26, fears he is falliiw in love with his brother's fiancee; Asks help DEAR MARY. HAWORTH: My problem involves me and' my brother's fiancee. I ani 26 (two years'older than my brother), and the girl is 23. They have been engaged for three.years. I believe 1 a mfalling in love with her. She treats me very nicely and waits] on me-hand and foot.' Lately she has told me that she Srearns about me; and that she has many sleepless nights because of me; yet she states that she loves my brother. • To further complicate matters, she often wears an intimate negligee-type of dress, while listening to television programs. Sometimes pajamas : - ; with a housecoat: other times, just pajamas are her lounging attire. She appears to be offering me ' opportunities for a love affair, but I don't want to wrong either my brother or her. What 'do you advise in these circumstances? After all, I am human'and tempted; and my self- control is being severely tried. Lately the girl appears to be moving in a day-dreaming state; and I have been .drea.ming.. about her lately, and .walking around in a daze, too. I would appreciate your recommendations immediately, before I lose my-mind. I shall be watching your "column for a possible solution. —:B':R.- „•' . ' • Girl's * Coquetry It Tragi-Comic DEAR B.R.: The two : timing behavior, of your brother's fiancee is tragi-comic., It appears .that she fancies herself to be a femme fatale when in the mood; and that she is rehearsing the role in relation to you at present. 'In imagination and in conversation, she is making a pitch , for you, brashly confident that her allure is sufficient to overpower your scruples (if any). But to what purpose? She hasn't figured that far ahead, it seems; because when you've asked, in effect, what her feelings are, she remarks that she still loves your brother. I think she means, by that remark, that she isn't letting go of the bird-in-hand, while trying -to ensnare the bird in the bush. I doubt that she is emotionally capable of 'making a ^profound com- mitmenLin the field of love—with your brbther, or you, or anyone else. She would need psychiatric help to put her in line for that, I gather. It is. the infantile, psychologically frigid female who gets involved in sudden (but senseless) infatuations, inspired by day dreams. And I believe your temptress belongs in this'category, as yet. I'take it she wants to make a conquest of you just to have it on record that she can. Maybe because you seem hard to get; or possibly to undercut - some other girl, who may have spoken of setting her cap for you. Who Can Save Fool From Folly? ' You say 'you', don't want to mis behave; and you. ask'advice in the circumstances. Well, it is almost impossible to save a fool from his folly (as Scripture, reminds)—so I am nbt'stire that advice will help. However, my'advice is: 1.. Either steer, clear of "the, girl absolutely, never again 'giving audience to her vampire routine; 2. Or put your cards on the.table with her—and your brother. And see what happens. By putting your cards on the table, I mean telling her that she has your head in'a whirl, that you know she is making an unfair play and you are sucker enough'to be interested—BUT. And the BUT is this—if she is really disposed to get serious with you, she first has to break off clean with your brother. And if she isn't prepared to do that, and continues to make a play for you, you will discuss the poten tial triangle with him, and thereafter- decide your next move. I think that ought to :clear the air somewhat, and give : you a strong new grip on yourself.—M.H.

Woman Held In Tot Death Committed CATONSVILLE. Md. 1*1 - A 23- year-old Laurel, Md.. woman, accused of strangling her infani daughter to death, is being hek at Spring Grove State Hospital here for observation. Mrs. Dorothy Terrell Willow was committed yesterday after an apparent suicide attempt in" her Prince Georges County jail cell al Upper Marlboro.- The move caused postponement of an appearance in magistrate's court to answer the slaying charge.
