Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune ANN LANDERS Hubby's Vocabulary Lacks 'Please' and Thank You' Dear Ann Landers: Every now and then you pick up the newspa- . per and read where a husband shot his wife or vice versa over some trivial matter. I know now how such things can happen. My husband has a habit which is driving me to the breaking point. When he wants a second cup of coffee he doesn't ask .for it. He just sits there and points lo his cup with a forceful downward motion of the index finger. I have managed to control my temper up lo now but I'm afraid one of these days I'll go haywire and all creation will break loose. Why this gesture infuriates me so I don't know. Am I completely out of my mind? How can I get a grip on myself? — ON THE BRINK ; . Dear Brink: The gesture infuriates you because it suggests that you are in a class with animals. When you want a dog to do something you point. Why seethe in silence and build an ulcer? Simply tell your husband you can understand English and he can skip the pantomime. It should work no hardship on him to ASK for a second cup of coffee. And, incidentally, some husbands have been known to say, "Please" and "Thank You." * * * Dear Ann Landers: Since everyone I know reads your column I hope you will print my letter.

NO UNBLEMISHED RECORD CLEAR LAKE, Wis. (UPI) Democratic Gov. Gaylord Nelson ; launched his campaign for the • '.U.S. Senate in his home town Sunday night with some misgiv ings. He admitted to residents tha 1 . he "broke too many windows with "a BB gun here to tell you I have an unblemished record." leed not change the facts to con- eal my identity. I want to be ecognized. I only hope the peo- le referred to in this letter will ecognize themselves and do omething about it. Six years ago I loaned my ward- obe trunk to the daughter of a riend who was going away to ollege. The girl is now married nd has a child. She still has my runk. Last summer a relative borrowed my son's golf-cart "for a veekend." His name is emblazon- d on the cart so there can be no uestion about who owns it. It's till over there. During the Christmas holidays ny neighbor asked to borrow my ilver cocklail shaker. She said he'd return il "tomorrow." When went to fix some cocktails last •eek I had no shaker. What makes people behave in uch a thoughtless, inconsiderate manner? I can't figure it out. Ian you? - GENEROUS JERK Dear Generous: This doesn't ake much figuring. Your two p ords "thoughtless" and "incon- iderale" sum up the situation. There is no cure for these char- clers. Unhappily, your only re- xiurse is lo 'phone them or write reminder. But why wait months nd years? * * * Dear Ann-Landers: The woman »vho signed herself "Chippendale oul" also has a Chippendale lead. Her definition of "gracious iving" is something she dreamed p out of nowhere. It takes more lian flowers on the table and inen napkins to make living gra- ious. We eat on oil cloth every night and I put the milk bottle right on he table when I feel like it. No xidy in the family has croaked at the sight of a pickle jar or a catsup bottle. Yet we live more raciously than some people who lave a great deal of money. I'm reminded of the weekend '. spent with a girl friend during my college days. Her folks lived on 'an estate. They dined by candle-light and had two kinds o( wine on the table every evening. These "gracious livers" were skunk-drunk from the minute 1 arrived on Friday evening until [ left on Sunday afternoon. They argued and used lan- uage thai would make a muleskinner blush. There was never any conversalion al Iheir table- only fights. So, if you don't mind I'll stick io my oil cloth and pickle jars. The gracious livers can have candle-light and profanity. — JUST A SLOB * * * To learn the difference between marriage-that "settles down" and one thai "gets dull," send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "What To Expect From Marriage," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, tamped envelope.

Studies of the lives of great men reveal that they have or had one characteristic in common—abundant energy which activated creative thinking and goaded them into action. Exceptions Of course, there are exceptions; men who had limited energy or ever poor health, but who reached the heights, However, it is interesting to note that these men were acutely aware of the value of energy. They were careful to utilize what energy they had in constructive ways, and wore constantly trying to improve their store of this precious commodity. For instance, Darwin attributed his success, in part, to the fad that he was quite frail.
