The accident occurred at 10:20 a.m. Mrs. Glassburn; driving a 1956 automobile, was headed west after stopping at the intersection. She did not see the approaching 1956 vehicle driven by Adam William Thompson and hit the right side of the automobile. Damage to the car driven by Glassburn was estimated at $300 and damage to Thompson's car was $50. Investigating the accident was Deputy LeRoy A. Farney. ACCORDING to authorities ally, is healthful. Do you enjoy a bit of gossip, and do you feel guilty about it? Well, don't! I am bringing you glad news today when I tell you that psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists and anthropologists, agree that it is good for mental and physical health. As a matter of fact, you are on their suspect list if you never indulge in a hit of—"Did you know?" "She said," "How can she afford it?" or "Wouldn't you think?". According to the experts, gossip is one of our most prevalent forms of communication. It reflects interest in people. If you do not have enough interest in the doings of others to talk about them, or if you are so uninteresting that no one talks about you, it's a bad sign either way! Safety Valve The experts say that gossip is a safety valve for the inner tensions and daily frustrations to which most of us are subjected. Public opinion polls have shown that well-adjusted folks are more interested in human behavior than any other one thing. I remember that once when interviewing a distinguished authority she told me that the party telephone line had saved more women on isolated farms from nervous breakdowns than anything else. They not only gossiped, but listened to the gossip of others. They belonged to, the human race! They were no longer isolated! If you are interested in people, you are going to talk about them. Not Vicious Naturally, these experts are not talking about vicious and damaging gossip, or the person who is so maladjusted and leads such a it's natural to gossip and, aclu- barren life that she spends her lime spreading news about those she knows. This individual has no real life of her own. She lives vicariously through the lives .of others. Oh the other hand, the person who never talks about others is usually not interested in others and has few friends to talk about, or she is so suspicious of others that she trusts no one enough to confide in them. Yes, it is evidently the WAY we gossip that matters. Like any other blessing, it must be used with moderation and taste. I am feeling a little tired and think I will go right out and have a good gab-fast with someone! * * * Want to do exercises the easy way?

I came her< from central Europe and I wan so much to be like Americans. I am a hair dresser and the girls in the shop have been won- d e r £ ully helpful. They all have nice boy friends (one already has a fine husband) and 'they seem so happy, I want to be popular" with boys, too. The girls tell me I should not be so serious in my conversation. They say American boys like to small. I cannot understand this. Can you tell me, please, Miss Landers, what is this small talk that seems to be so much in vogue here? And would you be good enough to give me some examples — EAGER TO LEARN Dear Eager to Learn: Small talk is, for the most part, dull phrases strung together by people who have no imagination and third' rate brains. Here are some examples: "What do you know?" "Is it hot enough for you?" "Don't taken any wooden nick- Is." "Where have you been keeping yourself?" "Do you think the rain will lurt the rhubarb?" If I were you, I'd think big and ; orget the small talk. Small talk s a weak substitute for silence, and if you reach for it as a conversational crutch, you'll be in ;he same category with the rest of the rummies. * Dear Ann Landers: Please tell me what to do about my mother. She is 68 years old, in good health, bright as a dollar and has lovely disposition. When Dad died two years ago both my brother and I begged her to live with us, but she refused.

She wrote about her alcoholic husband Logansport, Indiana, !,*haros-Tribuno Sevot that drinking was a problem. Her question was "What can I do for ;uch a man?" The important question is not 'What can she do for HIM—but 'What can she do for herself?" I was desperate after several years of marriage to a problem drinker. He wasn't ready for AA or any other kind of help. I begged, pleaded, threatened, prayed. Nothing I said or did made the slightest impression. A friend sent me the Al-Anon Family Group book. It was the start of a new life for me. I practically memorized it. Soon after, an Al-Anon Chapter opened in this city, I became active. Al-Anon has given me patience I never thought possible Fear no longer cripples me (I remember how I used to go to pieces every time my husband walked out the door.) Now my husband has recognized his problem and I'm sure my understanding 'and change of attitude helped. He's teen dry for two years and is well on the way to recovery. Anyone who/can do what I did.
