Twenty Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Ann Landers "First Mrs. X" Disproves Letter From Home-Breaker Dear Ann: I'd like to answer "The Second Mrs. X". No one is better qualified to do so, since I am "The First Mrs. X". Yes, I'm that "terrible woman" who fell in love with, and married my childhood sweetheart. He promised to love, honor and cherish me until death did us part, I was willing to work night and day to make our home a happy wholesome place. I brought three lovely children into the world. When we had financial reverses I took an outside job. I still managed to cook, clean, mend, and iron shirts until past, midnight. I .didn't buy a winter coat for seven •years because 1 felt it more important that my husband look well in the business world. - How do you think I felt when he came to me one day and asked for a divorce -to marry a girl just a few years older than our daughter? Was I "grasping" and "greedy" because I thought he .had an obligation to me and his ^children? • Am I a "pig" because I think he has some responsibility ,to the 'woman who gave him 23 years of married life? I'm not feeling sorry for myself, Mrs. Landers. I'm not the first woman who got this kind of a deal, and I won't be the last. But since "The Second Mrs. X" made a rather appealing and convincing case for herself, I thought you might like to know what it looks like from the other side.— HEARTBROKEN WIFE Dear "Heartbroken Wife": Many thanks for your excellent letter. I'm always giad to hear "the other side". But at no time did I find the "Second Mrs. X's" story either "appealing" or "convincing". I was with you, all the way —and my reply to her left no room for doubt. Dear Ann: I'm a girl 17 years of age. When 1 quit high school last year to make a modeling career for myself, my folks got mad and have hardly spoken a word to me since. I live at home and pay room and board, but J don't fed there's any family life around here so I can't discuss this problem with my parents. My steady hoy friend. Roy, is 24. He's in jail on a bum rap. When he was arrested I happened to he in the car which the police said was "stolen". It really wasn't, though. Hoy just took it wilh- wit his boss' permission. Since I didn't kuow anything about the merchandise in the trunk, they let me go, but he has to serve three years for something he didn't do. This is the second time he's been booked so I'm sure he'll have to serve out his time. I hate to be unfaithful but I have a chance to go out with a real nice guy who is a policeman. Would I be double- crossing Roy if I didn't wait?— HOUSTON SALLY With just the meager scraps of information you've provided, I'd advise you to forget all about "Bum-Rap Roy" and take this opportunity to get on the side o£ law and order. A girl of 37 who rides in "borrowed" cars with stolen merchandise in the trunk is plenty lucky to be on this side of the high wall. By all means, accept the date with the policeman and make some new friends for yourself. Dear Ann: I'm having trouble with my fiance. She's been in the United States only seven months but has learned the new country ways in a hurry. I met this girl three years ago on the other side of the pond. She's an American citizen by birth but has lived abroad most of her life. She's a professional seamstress and now makes more money in a week than she ever knew existed. Her closets are bursting with dresses, hats and shoes. She acts like she's struck uranium. My real complaint is she's never home when she's supposed to be. When I ask where she goes she says, "after sawing all day I like to go out and look at the bright lights of wonderful America." The wedding date is set for August, but I'm beginning to wonder if I'm heading for trouble. What do you think?—VANCE Your fiancee, like Penelope, may be busy sewing all day, but I sus- jpect she's becoming slightly un! raveled by night. Toll her you |!ike bright lights, loo, and since I you're her intended, she should iwait to unwind her bobbin when you can come along. If she's still going out solo by July 4th, issue your own private Declaration of Independence. It would be a most appropriate day. (Ann Landers will be happy to help you with your problems.

If you feel you cannot afford the expense of a long trip this summer, or if you need rest rather than travel, perhaps a vacation at home is your very best bet. The results will be much more satisfactory than huffing and puffing scenery. A week-end trip to a nearby city or resort (without the children) will cause you to discover one another as individuals, the more or less carefree sort you were before you married. No matter how much parents and straining against adverse Ji- love their children they owe .it to nancial and physical odds. i themselves to have some time You may find that you prefer to'alone. Your children are only spend a smaller amount of money .leased to you. Before you know it for a wading or splashing pool or;they will be gone and must be sprinklers and bright beach urn-;free to lead their own lives. You brellas for your back yard, or an do them a favor as well as your- air-conditioncr for a room in your house. Maybe nothing seems so appealing as not having to do anything or go anywhere. A vacation is not restful when one must meet deadlines or feel under pressure of any sort. The woman in the picture prob-l ably would enjoy this, too, if she' had more household help than usual. She would find it a restful experience to have some one cook dinner and care for the children during her husband's time away from the office. That way both could enjoy a vacation at home together. Change of Pace at Home You do not have to go thousands of miles away from home for a change of pace or a change of selves when you keep in sight the picture of you as a couple. There are undoubtedly parks, rivers, lakes, brooks, or woods nearby you, even if you do not live close to the sea or the mountains. Take advantage of the outdoors even if you remain at home this hot season-. Remember, too, that you can get just as good n suntnn at home in your own back yard as you can 5,000 miles away.

The opposition of the nation's second largest food chain, Safoway Stores Inc., has evaporated In a change of management.
