Wednesday Evening, November 20, 1957. Ann Landers Professional Help Needed To Separate Fact", Fiction Dear Ann: We are a croup of girls who are concerned about one of our school-mates. She has a nice personality and is good-looking, but she's gradually losing her friends b«cause she continually makes up stories about her life. She 'has told several people her parents were movie stars, claims she was married and in buses, in parks, at a ball-game, in the movies and wherever crowds gather. When I criticized her, she said she was just a friendly type and meant no harm. The thing I resent most is that she likes to go to public dances and roller-skating rinks alone. She invariably meets someone who takes her home. other night I told her I wouldn't stand for any more of this; She flared up and said I was too bossy. She said if I would '''suggest" rather than demand, she would probably listen. What do l _._. - . .you think?—MUDDLED-UP little proof of some of these wildj Friendly type my eye. A 2,'i-year- taies she starts to cry.

Her folks are divorced and she lives with her grandmother. Whenever one of us asks her to give a talks to strangers on the makiis conversation with street, people CLASSMATES If you really want to help her, you must understand that she's not just a liar, but a very unhappy girl who is so wound up in fantasies that she probably believes many of the things she makes up. What she needs is professional guidance so she can separate the fact from fiction.. You girls are kind to want to help. Continue to be as pleasant as possible and aon't press her for proof of the fairy-tales. Remember she's fleeing from a world that is too tough to face. Perhaps one of your mothers can suggest to her grandmother that the girl needs outside help. • * * CONFIDENTIALLY: PUZZLED FRIKND: The affair you describe, under the circumstances is in poor taste. However, this is not your responsibility and reflects in no way on yo-ar judgment. Go, if invited, and keep your opinions to yourself. * * « AFIRE.- WITH LOVE: A little less heat and a little more light would be useful. You are both ir.uch too young. # # * Dear Ann: I read in your column where two sisters, 16 and 18 years of age were embarrassed by •their dad's manners. They were afraid of the impression he made on the boy friends. I just had to write and say that my sister and I are exactly the same age as those girls and we would be very happy to trade places with them. They are lucky. Our dad. died three years ago. We'd give anything if he was around to make jokes and take his es and roller-skating rinks alone and winding up with a convoy. If she resents taking orders lell her you aren't making any demands, that it's merely a suggestion, and she doesn't have to take it—unless she wants the engagement to end up in marriage.

And the singing of Judy Garland brought down the house. But rock V roll was a flop. The occasion was the annual royal command performance at the Palladium with American stars stealing the spotlight from moiit of the British performers. Princess Margaret, who once (old Basic she had all of his records, could not attend because of a previous engagement. Basie said the-Queen told him the princess was "very sorry" she couldn't ome. "But the Queen said she had bei>n listening to some of my records herself," Basie said. "I guess she must have borrowed them from her sister." Josephine Lowmon All Count on Mom—She Sets Emotional Pattern First ol! all, members of the family depend on Mom for good meals. After writing recently about taking care of the man in the family I would like to say something about taking care of the woman n the home. It is absolutely true that mem- mends the broken toys, and takes the dog to the vet. Like Hurricane Her day is like a hurricane. First, she feels the impact during the mad scramble to get her family off to school and work. Then, Another thing these girls ought to remember is that their dad works hard all day and when he comes home he has a perfect right to relax and make himself comfortable. After all, he pays the rent for the house they live in and he buys them food and clothing. This, too, can make an impression on the boys. Hope you print this, Ann. It may wake some kids. up. —LONELY SISTERS # * * Dear Ann: I am engaged to marry a girl who is pretty as a doll but she's also stubborn as a mule. Her folks say she's always been like this and the only way to handle her is to lay down the law and show her you are'nt fooling. Although this girl is 23 years of age she has several childish ideas which I'm trying to change. She Miss Garland received such a they've!roar of applause she could only whisper "Thank you. Oh, thank The Calico Cat! you" across the footlights. "They tell me I have to go off and I- can't sing any more," she said to the cries of encore that rocked the audience. "But I love you all. Thank you." The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh joined in the renewed cheering that signified a new peak of Judy's career. turns home in the afternoon.

She absorbs the unexpected guests, nurses the family through unexpected illnesses, hustles out to Toy Industry Inspired by "Muttnik" NEW YORK (UP) — Ever since the Russians launched their mutt- nik, America's toy industry has been working like a dog. l Our toy makers have responded to the newest challenge from space with -the same display of alacrity. and know-how as they did last] month, when suddenly confronted' with Sputnik I. As a result, our own muttniks already are orbiting around the' toy counters. One item is a balloon satellite with a picture of a dog on it. ' Another is a sad-faced toy Beagle hound who is sporting a plastic bubble space helmet and a weighted tail. The sales pitch is what accounts for the pooch's pout: "The muttnik that can't get his- tail off the ground;" According to 12 leading manufacturers with space toys on the market, everything is a sell-out. Their factories are working overtime to meet the rocketing demand. Fre-Christmas toy buying patterns indicate space items already are doing business at a Davy Crockett-like pace. had not reacted in my normal manner. It does seem that a woman 1 should be allowed some moods, but usually the family goes haywire when she is moody or-out of sorts and are frightened to death if she loses her sense of humor. It is just as though she -had given them all a shot of poison. It is amazing what a little kidding and humor will do for a tense family moment.
