He divorced his neurotic wife in the face of plenty of criti- so we religion, which was additional me a great I deal. After the Ml. Whitney, highest point above sea level in the U. S., and Death Valley, lowest point, are only 85 miles apart. "And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger." May the Holy meaning of Christmas be with us. Philomalhian Library & Church Goods Store 119 E. Water St. withdrew from social life and became a recluse (You know, the nut type.) Four years ago my beloved husband passed away. I kept an eye open at his fu- eral for his nutty Ann Landers ex-wife but so far as I know she did not .-attend. Every year on the anniversary of his death 1 go to the cemetery to put flowers on his grave. I always find a large wreath, obviously placed there the night before by an unknown person. I'm certain it's his ex-wife who puts the wreath on his grave and that she's doing it to humiliate me. Shall I write her a letter and order her to stop this practice? The man was MY legal husband and she has no rights whatever. — LEGITIMATE WIDOW Don't write the letter. This woman interferes in no way with you when she places a wreath on the grave of her former husband. He was the father of her four children. You don't toss such things aside with the signing of a divorce decree. Interesting that you interpret this quiet gesture of devotion as an attempt to "humiliate" you. Since you seem bent on labeling her a I nut, may I point out that people jwho imagine themselves persecuted could be paranoid (look it up.) Dear Ann Landers: I am 80 years old and have no brothers or sisters. My rich aunt died and eft me a million dollars. 1 am not landsonte and I don't go in much or sports. The lady who lives next door is 25 years old. She has been very nice to me lately and 1 wonder if she could be interested in my money. Please put your answer in the paper. — SMOKEY JOE Dear Smokey Joe: Your handwriting is very good for a man 80 years old, but your spelling is terrible. I was fascinated to learn that an "ant" had left a million dollars. Since this is an advice column, may I give you some? Before you go in for short' story writing on a large scale, I suggest you bone up on spelling and punctuation. — o— Dear Ann: I'm desperate and ready to throw in the sponge. I have three daughters and one son. The girls are helpful and considerate. The boy is a problem. He's sassy, disobedient and always in trouble. When he was 8 he was picked up by the police for stealing candy bars. At 14 he was brought home by a storekeeper for taking money out of the cash drawer. He denies he's guilty in the face of overwhelming evidence and calls everyone a liar. Yesterday the boy took a dollar bill from my purse. I know he took it because I had "just put the dollar in the purse and left the room for a minute. The boy was in the room when I returned. 1 asked if he'd seen the dollar ark ie said no. I told him it was my ast dollar and I needed it badly. rhen 1 left the room briefly. When : returned he handed me the dot- ar and said he found' it on the loor. My husband claims If the boy thinks I don't trust him he'll con- ;inue to do wrong. He also says the child has told him repeatedly that 1 don't love him. I am beat,en. Please help me find an answer. — D. M. Dear D. M.: 'The boy's stealing is a symptom of a deeper problem. Experts in the field of child behavior tell us that children who steal feel unloved and are seeking satisfaction and compensation. The manner in which you compared your daughters with the son suggests that he has competed unsuccessfully for your affection. You favor the girls, and he feels left out. Consult an expert on children's problems. This should have been done years ago but perhaps it's not too late to give this boy a feeling of security and worth. — o — Are you tempted to smoke because the crowd does? If so, send for ANN LANDERS' new booklet, ^"Teenage Smoking" enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.
