10 LoganSjSort Pharos-Tribune Josephine Lowman Worry May Injure Health And Spoil Human Relations Tbere have been all kindt of clubi but, so far as I know, the "Why Worry Club, Inc." la the first of Its kind. To me, this Is an extremely interesting idea. We have clubs for fun, for civic improvement, for parent-teacher relationships. Alcoholics Anonymous has done a wonderful job, but the folks who go , through life poisoned by chronic j •worry which dims the lights of vibrant living, go alone. Everyone worries to a certain extent and everyone has something to worry about. However, thousands of persons live constantly in a haze, of hovering fear. No habit could be more vicious. The man who organized the "Why Worry Club" was suddenly attacked by this malady for no apparent reason. He said to friends, "Worry has me pinned down. I feel as if I am tired of living and afraid to die." I have picked another line out of the "Why Worry Club" ideas. "It Is a veil known fact that we sometimes are disturbed b'y things we believe might happen until we consider the crisis past, only to find that we have grieved unnecessarily, because after all, it did NOT happen." Of course this is true of most of onr -worries! , We look hack and -wonder why 1 In the world we put wrinkles in •our faces and injured our health and spoiled our human relationships, worrying about something which never occured.' I think U I* rery helpful to realize that others have worries, too. • It -minimize* our own troubles. "Worries range from the one who worries only occasslonally, when there is real positive reason for it, to those who make it a career, those who are caught in the hectic, fearful viewpoint of constant fretting and worry. This state can rnin health, but I would Tike to point out that poor health and nervous exhaustion can also cause the worry habit. Chronic fatigue, real nervous fatigue, can turn a vibrant, gay -woman into a soggy, weeping one. There should be more "Why Worry Clubs," where an individual can air worries without fear of ridicule or condescension, where understanding lifts the veil of suffering-, where the gallant approach to life is emphasized, where the contribution to life of adding hope and sunshine and good cheer to the lives of-others is sung. Remember though, that if you suddenly fall pray to this malady of worry, you are probably tired in a very dangerous way. If you would like to have my leaflet, "Worry," which gives you practical help, send a stamped, self addressed envelope with your request for leaflet No. 64 to Josephine Lorn an in care of this newspaper.

"My old woman •was right in blaming me for doing it. But please don't tell her 1 Mid that. She'i uppity enough at it ia." I WAS to astonished at this apology from grumpy, "techy" Sam Ticer, that for an instant I could not frame -words to answer him. Then I smiled—I hoped, dis- arminjly—at him. "There ii no need for apology, Mr. Ticer," I said. "It is entirely sufficient that you have come back and brought Jerry with you. And, I'll say nothing to Mrs. Ticer. She and Katie are so busy they haven't time to spend on thinking. But they •will b* as glad as I am to see you around the place again. We certainly need you both." "You won't miss us again," Sam Ticer said. "We'll be right on hand. But, if you don't mind, I'd rather not come into the kitchen just yet. Ill stick out here with Jim, until after the old woman gets the news that I'm back. I don't want her to start riding me." i *Von't Do That ' "She won't do that, I'm sure," I assured him with twitching lips, knowing full well that he was counting on me to cushion his wife's wrath. And then Jerry spoke pleadingly. . "You don't need me out here, do you, Pa?" he asked. "Kin I go in •with Mix. Graham and get to work ? Kin I, Pa?" "I don't care what you do," his father said, but the words were less gruff than those he uses to his son when he is displeased, and Jerry lost no time in rushing into the house, not bothering, in his eagerness, to -wait for me. Forgot His Manners "That boy needs a whaling," his father said. "He forgot his manners, rushing off in front of you." "Oh, no!" I said, with a gesture toward Dicky and Mr. "K." coming rapidly toward us. "He saw I didn't need him." "Mebbe so, mebbe so," Jerry's father said, doubtfully, and then my husband and Mr. "K." ranged themselves on either side of me. "Glad to see you back, Sam," my husband said over his shoulder, and then the two men hurried me into the shelter of the porch, out of earshot of Sam and Jim. "We're going to have the ceremony of handing you an Oscar as soon as we can pick some orchids : somewhere," Dicky told me. "Of all your many triumphs, old dear, this bringing back of old Sam Ticer, is top of the heap." "Amen." the F.B.I. man added with a smile. Anger Melted "I had nothing to do with it," I told them. "I simply was a messenger. When Sam read the apology which Georges wrote him, all the anger meited out of him. lie said to tell Georges that 'bygones were bygones' and not to speak of the affair again. I didn't even have to ask him to come back. "He even begged my pardon for leaving," I went OR. "His only worry is what Mrs. Ticer is going to say to him. I think I can manage that angle. But first, I a\ust see Georges, and relieve his mind about Sam's return. That is, if you don't tell me the Veritzens are already here!" (Continued tomorrow) Dear Miss Dix: I am a man of 28. My father has been out of work and I have gladly kept up the home because I feel that it is my duty. But here is my trouble: My mother absolutely enslaves me and tries to take away from me every vestige | of personal liberty. Why do mothers feel that it is their God-given right to boss their children even to the extent of telling them where to go, what to do, what to eat, what to wear, whom to associate with and when to blow their noses? Isn't there some way of making mothers mind their own business after their children are grown-up men and women'and perfectly able to run their own affairs? ROBERT Answer: I'm afraid not, Robert, because you see mothers never find out that their children grow up and get to be" intelligent men and women, capable of shaping their own lives. To mother her sons and daughters are always,toddling infants who have to be held by the hand and told to eat their spinach, and not to. sit up later than S o'clock. Won't Give Tip And because mother knew best when her children were 3 years old she continues to think she knows best for them as long, as they live. That is why she meddles in all of their affairs and thrusts unsought advice upon them and tries to Impose her own opinions and habits upon them. It never occurs to her that her children have any minds or personality of their own, or that their tastes and inclinations and talents may be different from hers, and that she can no more steer them along the course they must travel than a landsman could furnish a chart to a pilot to cross the ocean. One of the wisest women I know says that her tongue is two Inches shorter than it used to be, because she 'has chewed off that much of it keeping from asking her children where they were going and when they 're coming back and telling them not to stay out too long. And that woman's children adore her -and go to her continually for advice because she never tries to make them do her way. AVould that more women would imitate her example. you are going to demand a marriage that is run oa a fifty-fifty basis instead o£ one in which he gets all the percentage. Husband can be reformed, but it takes a woman with the nerve of a lion- tamer to do it.

Why should any child be allowed to sit for hours listening to or watching programs? Life a£lords plenty of action, plenty of entertainment, plenty of work to fill any child's day happily and profitably. Of course he should have a "little nonsense." That belongs to children. But he doesn't need, and he must not have, a steady diet of it. Radio and television must present a variety of programs. Their audience has a wide range of tastes and these must be satisfied if the programs are to live. But NightCoughs " ie to colds...eased vithout "dosing" —VISJSX Dear Miss Dix: Before my marriage I was a successful business woman with money to spend on myself, so I was well dressed and good-looking. I married a man I was much in love with and we have several children, all fine, and their. father is devoted to them, but. he has grown very careless of me. If I buy fov myself a new -dress,or a pair of new shoes or a hat, he will say: "Now you could have done without that," and I buy as little as any woman can get along with. Have never had an allowance or any luxuries, 'since I have been married. I have done a man's work to keep "my husband's business going when otherwise it would have failed, but now be is beginning to think himself a martyr In having me for a wife while he~is in daily contact with women who have the money to dress well and look attractive. My husband's one fault is his gross selfishness. I don't doubt another woman "could make my husband a model, but is it worth while for me to try to change him? C. B. Answer: After a wife spoils liej husband, it is about as difficult a matter to unspoil him as it is to unscramble eggs. Also, selfishness is an incurable fault because no one ever recognizes it in himself. However, anything is worth trying ouce and your best plan is to stage a revolution.
