Ann Landers answers your problems Dear Ann Landers: You printed a letter from a teen-ager named Billy who complained tliat his mother drove him nuts with her back seat driving. I am a mother of tliree teenagers and would like to register the identical complaint. Since my children learned to drive I haven't had a minute's peace behind the wheel. The other day my son and two of his friends were walking home from school. I saw them and asked if they wanted a ride. The minute they got in the car my son started to criticize my driving. I ignored the first few digs, and then he said, "Ma, I think you need new glasses. You almost clipped that car when you passed it." I answered,' "I was driving when you were in diapers." He didn't say anything then but when we got home he yelled for half aa hour about how I had insulted him in front of his friends. He didn't feel that he had insulted me with his crack about my needing new glasses. I hope you wiU give parents a break and print this letter, Ann. Several of my friends are having the same problem with their highschoolers. Thank you. — ON THE DEFENSIVE Dear On: It's strange that most children think their parents know everything, until they get to be about 12 years old. Then, suddenly, their parents don't know anything. This phase usually lasts six or seven years. At about age 20, children begin to have a somewhat improve opinion of their parents. By the sure she wanted to be engaged, to "take the ring back to the jeweler for a refund." A 22-year-old boy is old enough to know what he is doing. A reUable jeweler will stand back of his merchandise and give the customer a refund or exchange if the goods are faulty, but no jeweler is his right mind would sell an engagement ring with the provision that the buyer can bring it back for a refund if the romance doesn't go well. Would you advise a woman to return a gown to a shop if she became ill and was unable to attend the party? Could you get a real estate company to refund option money if the buyer changed his mind? I am protesting against your advice in behalf of approximately 25,000 fellow retail jewelers in this country who are probably as unhappy with your advice as I am. I hope you will print this letter and not discriminate against me on the grounds that I am a relative, because I am a daily reader as well—YOUR BROTHER-IN-LAW DAVE B Dear Dave: Twenty-five thousand apologies to you and all the other retail jewelers. I goofed. I should have told the young man that: (1) He should not have "surprised" a high school girl with an engagement ring and (2) He should hang on to the ring until he meets a girl who is at least as eager to accept the ring as he is to give it to her.

Gen. Harlan Fisk Stone appointed a 29-year-old Washington, D.C. lawyer to head a newly revamped government investigating agency. The young attorney said he would accept the appointment of "one condition," that politics should not enter into the agency's administration. Stone replied: ", that is the only condition under which you can have the job." Serves 41 Years Today, after a sometimes stormy 41 years as director ofj the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J.

Hoover has campaigned hard against communism, fascism, racketeers and what her terms "the creeping paralysis of corruption." He has appealed for public support to combat juvenile delmquency, the traffic highway toll and the "lunatic fringe that promotes and protects the racial and religious hate-mongers." Hoover's record as the nation's No. 1 crime fighter includes acting against some of controversy over the two incidents has died down and so have the rumblings of dissatisfaction with the famous G-man. Hoover's aides say his health is excellent and that he is giving no thought to retirement. They say he will stand by his statement to UPI last winter that he intends to remain on the job "as long as my health and the confidence of the President and the American people will permit." Konrad Adenauer feels his work may be undone Redlands Daily Pacts Tuesday, May 11, 1965 — 9 By WELLINGTON LONG United Press International BONN (UPI)—French President De Gaulle's flirtation with the Soviet Union and certain East European Communist governments both frightens and fascinates his German neighbors. Former Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who spent 14 years trying to cement West Germany and France firmly together so one side could never again join the Russians against invitation to his predecessor, Nikita S. Khrushchev, to visit Bonn this year. Adenauer and Erhard were so concerned at De Gaulle's moves to improve Franco - Soviet relations that they wrote him letters about it. The French president replied he intended to carry on despite their an.\ieties because he believes that only thus can the division in Europe be healed. German leaders were not sure De Gaulle would represent the other, feared his work will 1 their interests seltlessly. But as be undone. | always they were fascinated by .Adenauer's successor, Ludwigi'he idea that some kind of deal Erhard. shared Adenauer's concern. Yet Erhard was anxious to seek a tie-up with Communist China and was restrained only because he doesn't want to appear to be undercutting American President Johnson while the Viet Nam war is increasing in ferocity. Seeks Moscow Talks West Berlin Lord Mayor Willy Brandt, who hoped to lead the opposition Social Democrats to victory over Erhard in the September parUamentary elections, said if he does form a federal government he will immediately seek to talk with Moscow about German reunification. • And the Free Democrats, who are the junior members of Erhard's coalition and hope to improve their position in September, have put Moscow on the list of capitals their leaders are to visit in advance of polling date. They hope to convince voters they could succeed where others have failed. So far the Russians have offered the Germans no encouragement. While flirting outrageously with France, Soviet Premier Alexci N. Kosygin has not even replied to Erhard's suggestion that he pick up the with Moscow might be possible. In sum. they think De Gaulle's policy is unwise for Paris, but ought to be pursued by Bonn. Whether France's VE celebrations will worsen the current chill in Franco - German relations remained to be seen. But Germans noted that De Gaulle proclaimed a two - day national holiday for the first time to celebrate the victory over Germany—and that a high Soviet official attended t h e ceremonies.

His taste in shirts recalls once said in affectionate dcrog- alion of his brother, Robert. The late President's younger brother, now a New York senator, was and is something less than a clothes horse and his sometimes rumpled appearance once led the Chief Executive to e.xclaim, "Why, he's still wearing button-down collars." Johnson is skipping lunch frequently these days and walking around the south grounds during the period in which he ordinarily might be eating or swimming.
