Ann Landers answers your problems Dear Ann Landers: I am not trying to pass myself off as a perfect wiie. I have my faults the same as anyone else. But I am not simple-minded and I do have my pride. My husband is very fussy about what I pack for his lunch. I try to send him off every day with a bucket that is nourishing and tasty. Several weeks ago I forgot to put mustard on his pastrami sandwiches and the way that man carried on you would have thought I had tried to poison him. Now he pulls the lunches apart and checks. Then I have to put everythmg back together and repack it. He hasn't found anything to complain about since the mustard incident, but he keeps tearing up his lunches just to make me feel inferior. Of course I get mad and yell at him and he yells back and we start off everyday with a fight. How can this be stopped?—SUB-NORMAL Dear S-N: Tell your husband you will write a list of everything you plan to put in his lunch bucket and that you will check it off as it goes in. Then he can look at the list and leave the lunch alone. Some wives don't want to put a lunch together once, let alone twice. It is inconsiderate of him to double your work. Dear Ann Landers: I am writing in regard to "Rattled Robert"—the boy whose father insists that he make business calls on the telephone. The boy is supposed to find the number and get the party on the line. Then his father comes to the phone. The boy said he hated to do it and asked you if it was fair. Dear Rattled One: Many adults, as well as teens, vnote to gripe about my advice, even heard from a telephone company supervisor who said it was not "good manners to impose children on business associates." Sorry, friends, but a 14-year- old is no child. A 14-year-old should be able to say, "Good evening, Mr. Swanson. This is Robert Klienpell. I'm calUng for my father. WiU you hold on for just a moment, please?" The father should take over instantly and not e.xpect the boy to make small talk with Mr. Swanson. I should have made this point clear in my advice. Dear Ann Landers: I never thought I'd have to write to you but my husband has a habit that is drivmg me to distraction. Jake works the late shift. He leaves for work at 11:20 p.m. Every night as he walks out the door he says, "Bye, Honey. Go to bed." Where else does he think I could go at that hour? Every time he says that dumb farewell I feel like knocking h i s head off. How can I get him to break the habit?-SCREAMING MIMI Dear Mimi: You'll never get him to break the habit, but you can reduce your own irritability by having a different reply for him every night — and the nuttier the better. When necking becomes petting, watch out! To learn how the smart girl keeps both her dignity and her boy friend, send Hubert Horatio Humphrey likes bis job, is learning By WILLIAM THEIS United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, like most men pushing 54, pmched his waistline before ordering the creamed chicken and confided: "I like my job — and I'm learning. That means really getting to know about our great power and all the problems involved in the world's trouble spots. It means in-depth knowledge of what I perhaps knew somewhat superficially before." The former Senate Democratic whip will have been in office as President Johnson's understudy four months on May 20. To date as vice president he has traveled more than 30,000 miles, delivered 60 formal and dozens of informal speeches and visited 18 states and Puerto Rico. The pace is not too much faster than that which he knew during his 16 years in the Senate. The difference is in the scope and intensity of his assignments. Biggest Challenge What has been his biggest challenge? "Civil rights — carrying out the provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964," he said. President Johnson made Humphrey the coordinator of both the federal civil rights and anti-poverty programs even before the Minnesotan took office. Officially, he presides as chairman of the President's Committee on Equal Opportunity in Employment and of the Space Council. He sits in with the Na tional Security Council and cab inet. Humphrey, who captained the 1964 civil rights legislative drive, has had less to do this year with preparation of the pending voting rights bill. More measure, extension of the Arms Control Act and foreign aid. He still has his old bounce. But by sticking largely to dark suits and ties, he has taken on a more formal appearance. His attire on this day was a dark blue suit, white shirt and dark blue-striped tie. Meeting new people, especially young people, delights Humphrey. "I like people," he said with emphasis. His stop-and-chal habit imperils his schedule at times. But the high point of this day clearly had been his personal tribute to Mrs. Eugene R. Fowler, of Terre Haute, Ind., her two small children. Her husband, an Army captain, died April 27 after stepping on a :V'iet Cong land mine at Phouc'boss. Binh Thanah. Humphrey greeted the family in his historic formal office. There were presents for Ste phen, 5, and Genie, 9, and the vice president's sympathetic attention. "That man gave his life," he said. "If the vice president doesn't have time for people like that, he just ought to quit." Despite all this. Humphrey believes he is able to spend more time with his wife, Muriel, than he did as a senator. Mrs. Humphrey has a secretary nov/ to help her, and their four children are grown. The Humphrey staff that previously had to devote most of its attention to serving constituents, now can give more direct help to its!spring watermelons.

Common Market faced By WILLIAM ANDERSON United Press International BRUSSELS (UPD— Deciding who pays for the Common Market's agricultural poUcy is the biggest single question facing the six-nation community between now and mid-year. It is a S2.5 billion a year question—by far the most expensive bill ever to be presented by (he community's executive commission to the member governments of West Germany. France. Italy. Belgium. Holland and Luxembourg. market. At present West Germany's food producers are the most heavily subsidized. French farmers get the least state aid. The community's nine - man executive commission has moved that subsidies be taken Out of the hands of individual governments and run by it. To do this the commission needs money. It has suggested all levies on food such as grains, from nonmember countries such as the United Slates, go into a central fund. The commission headed by;." professor Waller Hallstein Dccidins who pays what and:„.ouj,| administer this fund with democratic control being provided by the European parlia-i ment. So far so good. But this would guarantee farmers their income, but not industrial workers. So the commission has gone one step further. Tariffs and levies on all industrial imports should also go into the central fund giving it an income of nearly $2.5 billion a year by 1967. .or |M ||||An Has Double Purpose v3 iflllHvll Community financing of exports of agriculture and manufactured goods would come from this fund. France thus finds herself in difficulties. On one hand she wants to be sure the community will subsidize her large exports of agriculture. But President Charles de Gauile has frequently said he will not accept central or supranational control. He dislikes even more the prospect of extending the who gets what is going to strain the relations between "the six" and notably between France and the others in the coming weeks.

A. DuBridge of a gift of S5,- 000,000 from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation of New York. To be known as "The Alfred P. Sloan Fund for Research in the Physical Sciences," the grant will be devoted over a period of years to what Mr. Sloan, former head of General •Motors, describes as "the pursuit of knowledge for knowledge's sake." While intended primarily for research in the physical sciences, including mathematics and engineering, the fund may also be applied where basic development in the physical sciences impinges on others, such as the life sciences. In acknowledging the grant. Dr. DuBridge said: "This is not only one of the largest single contributions ever made to Caltech, it is also one of the most significant, for it comes precisely at a time when we are shaping up plans for an expansion of our activities that v;ill entail the raising of many millions of dollars during the coming few years. It is thus a source of great encouragement to us to have this generous initial gift, and we trust it will inspire others to provide the additional support we will require." automatic people. Meets With Chiefs The day I interviewed him the vice president got to lunch in an otherwise deserted Senati dining room at 2:15 p.m. He already had spent almost two hours with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, been briefed by a Central Intelligence Agency officer who daily rides to work with him for that purpose, attended a White House Rose Garden ceremony, met with a disarmameni agency official and the family of an Indiana Army office: killed in South Viet Nam. ' Ahead were other late afternoon appointments and then, for a change, a free evening. What aspects of the vice presidency, I asked, have required the most adjustment? Humphrey smiled and said: "As a senator, I was kind ol independent and promoting many projects. Now I'm using my ideas inside the administra tion—they may show up later but not as a piece of legislation with my name on them. That's a real adjustment for an outgo ng fellow. And there is a far wider range." The vice president regards his "Most deUcate" task that of helping to guide the President's legislative program in Congress. He spends about half his time on Capitol Hill. "That's what the President wishes" — and that's what the vice president does. He earlier had made it clear that he regards himself as a "helper to the president" not as "assistant president." He says there is and should only be one president. Humphrey's legislative work so far has concentrated on the aid to education bill, the recent S700 million emergency defense appropriation, the Appalachia Hunt under surgery NEW YORK (UPI) — Ron Hunt, hard-luck .'Ml-Star second baseman of the New York Mets. underwent surgery for a shoulder separation that largely consultative powers of; may bench him for the rest of the European parliament to control expenditure of the central fund. the season.
