fwelve Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Josephine Lowmon Complete Bed Rest for Mom Funniest Thing She's Heard 1 Let iVIom fall heir to virus, and the whole roof caves in. Not long ago I wrote a column about how a wife can help keep her husband alive by making the home a warm oasis of peace, by seeing that her husbnd has periodic physical check-ups, and by controlling her desires for material possessions so tnat her man is not under constant strain to provide the things his family wants. He himself wishes to give them •these things anyway, and if he 'is also under pressure from his family, this often becomes a killing load. I think that women are inch more at fault in wishing for i; ngs for their children than for • niselves. >i Well-being I • wever, there is another view| — th«t of the wife's well-being, what about the care she gets? ve written about this many i and tomorrow I will have .•thing more to say about it. .ie meantime I would like to — t a letter which came to me "fi a woman after reading the imn about taking care of hus- ds. I am sure you will find it msing and it also has more than -grain of truth in it. '"Dear Mrs. Lowman: A peculiar Aing about our highly civilized modern life is that no one ever expects Mama to be incapacitated or ill abed. "It is perfectly acceptable and normal in this age for children to have numerous viruses. Dad can have a case of flu any day, except holidays, with complete peace and sympathy. He can prop a busted toe on a pillow in front of tfie TV for 48 hours and no one considers him a bit neurotic, Roof Caves In "BUT, let Mom fall heir to a virus and the whole roof caves in.

"Husbands, required to leave the office to tend to an ailing v/ife usually make up some other excuse to cover the embarrassment of K all.' If she tells her children she has a stomach ache, they bounce on it. If she tells them her head hurts, they scream like banshees—anything to get her out: of bed and on her feet. A wife can slice half her thumb off, wash a stack of dirty dishes, keep Junior out of the street :and hang out the wash, and when th« doctor prescribes complete bed rest for her she thinks it is the funniest thing she ever heard!"

Dear Ann: I'm writing to you because I don't know where else to turn. I'm the mother of five wonderful children. I never had any trouble with any of them. i Now my IC-year-old son is making up for them all. He. thinks he's in love—and you ought to' see the girl. She's a peanut of a thing, not even five feet tall and weighs about 80 pounds. She has a hot temper and a big mouth, I could just slap her when she bosses my six foot son. I'm afraid he might get into serious trouble because he acts like he doesn't have parents any more. Please tell me how I can talk some sense into this boy's head. I am at the end of my rope. —MRS. A. M. ' Tie a knot and hang on, Mother. The more you knock this peanut— I mean girl, the more violently he will defend her. The boy is only 16 and this is probably his first mad crush. Say no more and before you know it he'll get tired of her bossiness, her hot temper and her big mouth. » » » Dear Ann: My husband is 64, and I'm a few years younger. His mother is 82 and she's the "problem child". She insists on living 150 miles away in a small town which she likes much better than the city in which we live.. She owns a bit of run-down property and has many friends. We are all the family she has. Last year we drove 2400 miles going to see her. She spent four | months of the year with us and : complained frequently that she was lonesome fdr her friends. Now that she's back home she phones every Sunday and cries on the telephone that we are "ignoring" her. I am becoming very upset over all this because my husband has a heart condition and can't stand a lot of traveling. Don't you think she ought to move to this city if she wants to see us often, and not expect us to burn up the road whenever she takes a lonesome spell?—R. C. F. Don't pressure your' 82-year-old mother-in-law to move to your city if she has life-long friends in her own little town. The 150 miles which separates you could be a blessing. ' Ask your husband's doctor to put in writing that his heart can't stand these frequent trips. This will be more effective than anything you can say. In the meantime let your mother-in-law know she's welcome anytime and tell her, you'll try to hire a young man to drive you and her son to see her on Mother's Day, her birthday and Christmas. * * • Dear Ann: I'm a junior in high school and have a terrible problem. I've always wanted to be a cheer leader and have been practicing for try-outs for over six months. My boy friend told me he wouldn't go with a girl who was a cheer leader because it's .vulgar to appear before a crowd of people in knee-length skirts. My father said he was silly and ad- vised me to go ahead and try to win the cheer leading competition if I could. Well,' last week I won it—but I think I lost my boy friend. He's very cold and told me he'll "see me around sometime." I'm very fond; of him, Ann. Do you think I'd be wise to give up the cheer leading and get my boy friend back? I will do as you say.— THE CARTWHEEL, Your boy friend is jealous of you, Pet. He doesn't want you looking so cute before hundreds of other fellows. Just let him stew in his own selfish juice and tell him you'll dig him later—when he grows up. If the school authorities approve the knee-length skirts they ought to meet with the boy friend's approval. P, S. You ought to see what your mothers wore in the roarin' 20's kids! * * * CONFIDENTIALLY: S. R. L.: Your point of view is excellent. However, hospital regulations vary and husbands are not permitted in delivery rooms in a great many cities 1 . Doctors often have more trouble with the fathers than with the mothers. HURT FEELINGS: Forget the silverware. It's not worth a family fight. Ben Franklin was right when he said "If you want _ to know the true character of people just watch how they divide an inheritance". (Ann Landers will be happy to help you with your problems.
