Ann Landers answers your problems Dear Ann Landers: Our daughter is 22. She is engaged to a young man we do not know at all well. This girl has finished college and has always shown good judgment—except in the selection of her fiance. The young man has an apartment in a bad section of town. He frequently phones our daughter at night and asks her to come to his place. She dashes out the door whenever he calls and never returns before midnight—always alone. -My husband and I believe he should not ask her to come across town at night, into a bad neighborhood, and then allow her to go home alone. Are we old-fashioned? Should we speak up or remain silent? —B. CAL. Dear B.; You aren't old-fashioned, you're just too late. Your daughter didn't get this way overnight. It's obvious that she is so hungry for male attention that she will do any- tliing to get it. As parents you have an obligation to speak up. Having spoken up, say no more. A gir! 22 must (and probably will) make her own decision about when and where she will see her fiance. A young man cannot respect a girl who has no self-respect. He demeans her by asking her to come to his place. And she degrades herself by caving in to his selfish demands. Dear Ann Landers: Will you kindly devote a little space to the proper dress for women who work in offices? It would be a national service. At tills moment I am looking at two girls who appear to be wearing shortened formals. One dress is cut so low that when the office boy drops the mail on her desk he looks at the ceiling. Another dame is decked out in a sweater decorated with red and green sequins. I practically go blind when the sun hits her. The girl behmd me is wearing a black lace cocktail dress on wluch she has sewn white collar and cuffs. The black patent leather belt matches her shoes. And while you're at it, Annie, what do you think of the bee­ hive hair-do for office wear?— VIEW FROM THE lOTH FLOOR Dear View: Beehives are fme if you happen to have bees. In an office—no. The same goes for sequins, satin and lace dresses, and those low-cut numbers. Girls who wear fussy, party- type outfits to work look as if they slept away from home the night before and came straight to work from the party. Dear Ann Landers: I am married to a wonderful guy. He is 21. I am 16. My parents didn't want me to get married but I hated school and wasn't learning anything. My mind was on Tony all the time. It seemed stupid to try to be a student when I just wanted to be Tony's wife. Whenever I mentioned marriage my mother went through tiie ceiling. One day I decided to tell her I was pregnant so she'd have to let me get married. My plan worked but now I'm afraid I outsmarted myself. Tony and I have been married three months and I am still not pregnant. According to what I told my Mother I should be five months along. She is worried because I'm so thin and she keeps asking me why I haven't gained w-eight. It I tell her the tnith can she have the marriage annulled?— GIRL WHO HAD TO LIE Dear Girl: Tell your mother the truth—and the sooner the better. The age of consent and laws bearing on annulment vary from state to state. See a lawyer. Too many starry-eyes lovers do not know the difference. Do you?

Copyright 1965, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate. Expert says Viet Cong defeating U.S. LONDON (UPI)—A British counter-insurgency expert said today in an interview with the London Evening Standard that the Viet Cong have defeated the Americans in the guerrilla phase of the Vietnamese war and may win total victory within a year. The newspaper said the views of R. G. K. Thompson, head of the British .idvisory mission to South Viet Nam, had been forwarded to the U.S. government. The war could be lost by the South Vietnamese and the Americans within a year unless it is regarded as a long- haul job. But if the United Sites is resolute, the prospects could be transformed in a year or two .... Once the Viet Cong stop winning, the tide could be turned against them. But the war could continue without a final decision for about five years." PEGASUS 11 SPREADS ITS AVINGS—The largest instrumented satellite ever developed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the second Pegasus satellite is shown in artist's drawing withi its meteoroid-catching "wings" deployed. The panels —96 feet long and 14 feet wide—record the impacts of space dust particles and radio the data to earth. Information about the meteoroid hazard is vitally needed as larger, longer-lived spacecraft come off the drawing boards. Pegasus II is expected to stay in orbit three years or more and be visible with the naked eve from earth. Total weight of the satellite is 23,100 pounds—3,200 for Pegasus and" 19,900 pounds for the 90- foot-long top section of the Saturn launch rocket, which, will remain attached. Flying doctor helps needy in far off Basutoland JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (UPI) — The fat-bellied transport aircraft touched down on the rough, 8,250 feet high airstrip at Semonkong, deep in the Maluti Mountains of Basuto­ land. A small group of Africans, some dressed in traditional brightly-colored blankets, huddled together against the sharp wind cutting down from the surrounding 10,000 feet high peaks. They clustered around llic plane, helping lo unload its cargo with willing hands. The cargo — 1.000 pounds of powdered milk and biscuits donated by the People of America Fund — would mean less hunger for their children and themselves. Clinics Formed The milk will be distributed from clinics. Each child in the district will be given four pounds. 'This should last until mid winter," Dr. Trevor Morgan of the Basutoland Flying Doctor Service said. "After that I shall just have to look around for more. Where it will come from I really don't know. But it will have to be found somewhere. There are children here who weigh only 35 pounds — at the age of ten." One hundred and fifty miles lo the southeast, outside the dusly little Pondoland town of Bizana, Ihc grey grassland leaped into flame. Perhaps some passing motorist had beeni . .. careless with a match. Perhaps a piece of broken glass had focused the sun's rays on to some tindcr-dry grass. Within minutes the tall britlle grass and the sun-browned willing maize . fields were ablaze. Sparks carried by the stiff breeze set alight the thatched roofs of some nearby African huts. With blankets thrown over their heads, the villagers set about saving their meagre pos­ sesions from the burning huts. Menfolk, overcome by the smoke collapsed on the hard- baked earth outside their homes. There was no water to fight the flames — the nearby stream had dried up many months ago. When the rains desert us. the fires come." a young .African woman said. "It is a way of Ufe with us." The mountain foodUft and the burning village were manifestations of a fact of life in Southern Africa today. Much of the country, from the Limpopo bushveld to the usually lush green hills of the eastern Cape Province, is in the grip of a drought unprecedented in memory. Will Become Worse It is drought which will almost certainly become worse, for the South .African winter is just beginning, and winter is the dry season. Hundreds of White farmers face possible ruin and bankruptcy.. Untold thousands of .Africans face a hungry, miserable winter. In some areas of the Northern Transvaal, where past annual rainfall has averaged up to 1 20 inches, there has been no for three to four years. Water levels in South .Africa's 87 major storage dams are as low as 1 and 2 per cent in some, with the average being about 15-20 per cent. In March 1961 the average was 65.8 per cent.

Wilson Five killed pushing car from RR track INGLEWOOD (UPI) — The top 2-year-oId non - stakes winning fillies in the west battle for a 520,000 added money purse today at Hollywood Park in the Nursery Stakes. Heading the field of 13 feminine runners is H.R. Talmage's Fleet Sunrise, runner-up to Century in the 825,050 Junior League Stakes during the first week of the meeting. In that race Fleet Sunrise was beaten by a half length; and was e x p e c ted to be the posttime favorite today. Six fillies who chased Century and Fleet Sunrise are back in the Nursery Stakes. They are Miss Kat Bird, Choir Singer. Bay Folly, Fleet Betty, Fin- It would be in the public interest if Congress grabbed the opportunity now offered to discover how and by how much organized labor is violating the Federal Corrupt Practices -Act (FCP.A) by diverting union funds into poUtics. The FCPA was enacted in 1925. It was amended in 1947 to read, in part, as follows: "It is unlawful for ... any corporation whatever or any labor organization to make a con- •ribution or expenditure in connection with any election at which presidential and vice presidential electors or a senator or representative are to be voted for. or in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any of the foregoing offices, or for any candidate, pohtical committee or other person to accept or receive any contribution prohibited by this section." Sympathetic courts have protected Big Labor against the harsh realities of that provision. Labor leaders have been quick to devise methods by which they could puU their weight in politics without becoming liable to the penalties provided by the Corrupt Prac- Lices Act. The AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE) is an example. The courts uniformly have held that what ! might appear to be by anyone else political activity is more educational activity when per formed by or in behalf of a union. If all of this is in direct violation of the spirit of the Corrupt Practices Act, the labor leaders could not care loss. They are home free and safe nastrida and Premise.

The opportunity to inquire into this is offered by Presi dent Johnson's proposal that Congress repeal section 14-B ii( the Taft Hartley Act. Taft-Hartley forebade unions to indulge in closed shop contracts. The act provided also that any slaie might forbid within its own jurisdiction the so-called union shop contract. .A closed shop contract forbids an employer to hire a worker who is not a union member. Under a union shop contract, an employer may hire a non-union worker but the latter must start paying union dues thereafter within a specified time, u.sually 30 days. Some of these captive union members have caught their labor bosses spending union money for political purposes lo which the faceless capli\e member was opposed. In two recently decided legal disputes tlie courts finally held that a protesting union member could demand return of that portion of his dues money which had been diverted to political purposes to which he was opposed. Then happened an astonishing thing. The union • leaders balked at that proposal. They said they would prefer lo waive the union shop provision in behalf of any protesting member so lhal he could continue working at his job without being a dues paying member of tiie union. The union bosses apparently were afraid lo reveal how they were spending dues money. Tills raises interesting questions: How general is the practice of spending union money for political purposes in violation of the Corrupt Practices Act? Could union dues be substantially reduced if union spending were limited to legitimate union purposes? Why has there been no attempt at federal prosecution of the railway labor leaders of the union that figured in the foregoing legal proceedings? Congress should demand some answers. SOMETHING MISSING? The truth is that Johnson is not a vacation type. Unlike the last four Cliief Executives, he has no desire whatever for resort leisure. Beaches bore him. Yacht trips such as the voyages of former President Harry S Truman aboard the USS Williamsburg would make Johnson ported Monday. Dr. Harold Zirin, professor of astrophysics at the CaUfornia Institute of Technology and a staff member of the Mt. Wilson and Palomar Observatories, said the camera also disclosed that the sun showed great activity in the form of rhythmic feel more imprisoned than he Lndulations of a forest of jets does at the White House.

"The sun's surface is dynamic, not static like the topography of the moon," Zirin said, "and a great deal can be learned by observing the sun's surface in motion." Zirin said the motion picture observations were begun with solar telescopes at the High Altitude Observatory at Climax. Colo., and are continuing at Ml.
