Tuesday Evening, June 26, 1962. ANN LANDERS If Friends Are So Don't Send Announcements Dear Ann Landers: You've made a great deal of trouble for me. I plan to be married in July. We can't have many outsiders to the wedding, just a handful of relatives and -a few intimate friends. I know several people who would be interested to learn of my marriage. I want to send them announcements. In B recent column you said NO ANN 0 UNCEMENTS on the grounds that anything short of an invitation looks like a bid for gifts so now my fiance is giving me real trouble. Quote: "Ann Landers says no announcements and that's final." I have dear friends in Manila-, Tokyo and Honolulu. It would be ridiculous to invite them to the wedding, but I DO want them to know I am married. An announcement is the only sane and sensible, way. Now, will you please change your mind?—SABA Dear Sara: If these friends are dear to you as your letter suggests they rate the five minutes it would take to write a personal note. It need say only, "I married Jim Jones on July 4th. He's wonderful. No time for a letter now, but I wanted you to know." I think a brief note of this type is far warmer and more meaningful, Sara, than 'a formal, engraved invitation which read ."Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Renault Hig- enbothem The Third announce the marriage"—and so on. * * * Dear Ann: I'd like to give an honest answer to "Uneasy." It's more than YOU did. She's the young bride who wanted to know if her husband could .be trustee overseas with "those loose foreign women." Of course he can't. He'll be overwhelmed when he gets out this country and discovers the wonderfully irresistible foreign female. Naturally he'll succumb The flesh is weak, you know. SKYLINE LOAD UP THE MUG FOR AN EttNtNG OF FUN! TOMORROW BEN CASEY'S FIRST MOVIE WITH -PLUS- BIG SHOCK SHOW! Foreign women treat love as a precious treasure—something natural and lovely, American women are either icebergs or sexpots, driven to promisicuity because of their neurotic drives, Once an' American man gets out of this country (alone, that is) his American wife never looks the same. So please level with that poor, dumb bride who signed herself "Uneasy." Tell' her she has plenty to be uneasy about— FKEE SPIRIT Dear Free: You poor, miserable sick thing. You've probably been turned down so many times you feel like an army blanket. Your letter could have come only from a rejected, inadequate male. My sympathy. * * * • Dear Ann Landers: I'm a 16- year-old girl who is worried about my 13-year-old sister. She is stubborn 'and headstrong and resents it when I try to tell her anything. Both- Mom and Dad work and they get home about 5:30,'so they don't know what goes on with my sister after school. She is running around with a crowd of tough kids who are all older than she is. Her closest girl friend is 16 and looks like a chorus girl. These kids come to the house after school and smoke cigarettes and drink liquor. I haven't told my parents because I don't want to, be a tattletale but I'm getting worried. I'm afraid of what might happen next. Should I rat on my sister and tell my folks? Or should I say noth ing and let her learn the hard way?—QUIET SO FAR Dear Quiet: If a friend of yours was rocketing along at high speed over , a winding road "and you knew there was a washed out bridge ahead would you be quiet and let him learn the hard way? Well, this is the same thing. Tell your parents immediately. I hope your mother will quit her job and walk into the house about 4:30 p.m. one day next week. The extra money she is making on the outside can't possibly be worth it. If alcohol is robbing you or someone you love of health and dignity, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "Help For The Alcohol ic," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad. to help you with your problems, Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. 1962, Field Enterprises, Inc.

I am thinking that you might dive nto the water this summer instead of doing the same old rou- ine of climbing in or walking in. J would add great .zest to your swimming days if you learned to dive. If you have never learned to dive, it. will not be easy. I remem- >er the first time I left firm foundation and went in headfirst. .It vas just from the end, of a row- joat, but it seemed to me I was umping from the top of The -Em>ire State Building. Were Waiting I was so full of my own success >ecause I finally got off the ehdi of, ! the rowboat that I said, "Exactly one week from now I am gong to dive from the 20-foot plat- f orm." My friends (?) have memories like elephants, and they were all there waiting to see me do it ust a week after I left the end of he rowboat. I went up with great self-con- 'idence and aplomb. Then I stood here. I looked down at the water, 20 feet, below. I "started. I stop- led. I shuddered! My dear friends shouted, "Go on, Jo. We can't wait all afternoon." I knew that I was not going to crawl down if it killed me to do otherwise. I finally .jumped. It did' wonderful things for my ego, although it ;ook some skin off, because I hit ;he water a touch "flat." Even such minor triumphs are ^ood for us, mainly because they reflect an attitude and approach to life. I do not suggest that you dive off the top of a 20-foot ladder one week after' you begin your diving. That's crazy! But I do think you would have fun learning to dive, the easier way. How To Bo It Here's how. Stand on the edge of a pool or float, or the end of a boat. Curl your toes over the edge. Raise your arms overhead, one arm by each ear. Keep your arms in this position and bend far over toward the, water. Remain in this position as you fall toward the water. Keep your feet on the edge just as long as you possibly can. Concentrate on two things as you fallr Keep your "r»*c y-^ } '*';£»*$ „ > '"f'At ^ _ , j£ i4 J> Bold hew attitudes of life await you when you bravely head down, don't raise it, and keep your feet on the edge as long as you can If you would like to.have my leaflet, "Learn To Swim," which also gives, diving instructions, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request for leaflet No. 22 to Josephine Lowman in care of this newspaper.
