Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Ann Landers Drinking on Date Created 'Unfortunate Circumstances' Dear Ann: I'm a girl 15 in a terrible jam. My parents read your column every day and think the advice is good. If you can help me out of this mess I'll never forget you. I had a date last Friday night with a swell kid. We went to a movie and drove around town for a while. Then he bought a few bottles of beer and spiked it. We parked in. an empty lot and talked about school. I felt a little drowsy, not being used to spiked beer, I guess, and the next thing I knew, it was daylight. My date had fallen asleep too, and the battery was dead because the radio had been on all night. By the time he got me home it was 6 a. m. My parents were frantic and were about to notify the police. Now I can't go out for a month and all privileges have been taken away. I didn't do anything wrong. I was just a victim of unfortunate circumstances. Please explain to my parents how these things sometimes happen to respectable people.—IN DEEP What, pray tell, is "respectable" about a 15-year-old girl who drinks spiked beer and parks in an empty lot? And who, may I ask, created these ."unfortunate" circumstances? Don't tell ME to pull your bacon out of the fire on this one. In my opinion, the punishment was far too lenient. You'll never know the agony your parents suffered while waiting'and watching for you to come home. Irresponsible behavior that turns Mom and Pop gray gets no support from me. Dear Ann: My husband's older sister is getting to be a real problem to the entire family. She never married, but inherited a considerable sum of money from a man she went with for years. Our only son is nine years old. He's an adorable and loving youngster. We aren't wealthy but have everything we need and our child is not under-privileged. My husband's sister, whom I snail call Aunt Nora is crazy about this boy and buys him ridiculously extravagant gifts. Anything wo give him looks small by comparison. Our son is growing up with a veils- Double Attractions! SIZES 10 A pretty blouse with floral embroidery plus a fullskirt is a 'double attraction' that any young miss will love wearing on hot days.

Recently the child disobeyed his father and was told he couldn't have a new catcher's mitt. He phoned his Aunt Nora and she said, "Of course I'll get it for you dear." What on earth are we going to do about this situation?—U. P. If you permit a foolish aunt to make a mess of your son's life, the fault is YOURS — not hers. When well-meaning relatives get into the act and override the parental veto, it's Mom and Dad's place to lower the boom. Tell Aunt Nora that she is not to send the boy another gift without first getting your approval. If she doesn't cooperate, return the gift, unopened. What Aunt Nora may think is generousity is really selfishness. She places her own pleasure first, and totally disregards the effect of this unbalanced giving, on the child. Lavishing expensive gifts is a poor way to show affection. It merely gives a youngster a dis- torded sense of value;. Tell Aunt Nora that Christmas is over and make it stick. Your son's training is YOUR responsibility. Don't fail him. Records Show George Washington Delinquent In Local Tax in 1794 ALEXANDRIA, Va. (UP)—That fellow who chopped down a cherry tree and then had to go blabbing about it to everyone was still up to his old tricks at the age of 62. The only difference was he bad switched fields: Instead of tree chopping he was tax dodging. A newly-found dusty Alexandria record book tells the awful truth: George Washington didn't pay his local taxes in 1794. The book listed him as being delinquent nine pounds. That's the way 1 the book put it: Delinquent, (pounds) 9, G. Washington. It didn't even say G. Washington, President, currently doing business in the national capital at Philadelphia. Apparrently in Alexandria they weren't easily impressed in those days. But Washington followed true to form. He couldn't tell a lie. The record book shows he paid up in full. , Assistant City Manager Eugene Barnwell said he discovered . the old tax book Tuesday while, shuffling through some long-IorgoUen documents. Dear Ann: I have a most peculiar problem and don't know how to cope with it. I'm an adult man who is being victimized by a 3- year-old boy. Every night when I come from work, this neighbor child is wait-j ing on my porch. I like-the little! fellow but he doesn't know when to go home. He falls asleep on my davenport and his folks never come for him. I have to carry him home every night. They don't seem concerned about feeding him or seeing that he's in the house after dark. Once I sneaked in the back door to avoid him. His father spotted me through the window and ! brought the boy over. He said, | "Your little pal misses you." I, didn't reply. He added, "When the Mrs. and I go out at night we'll bring him over. He likes it here." What can I do?^H. R. If your vocal chords are out of commission, use sign language. Make it plain, YOU'LL decide when you want company, and tell them to keep the children at home. These nervy neighbors will make a male nurse-maid of you, if you let 'em. Barnum was right.

Copyright 1957-, Field Enterprises, Inc. —Tax Defendant Pays Government $110,000 BLOOMI'NGTON (UP) — Joseph T. Solomito, Bloomington, former limestone executive, Tuesday paid the federal government $110,000 as payment on a civil liability debt he owed. Solomito recently was convicted on charges of evading $54,000 in income taxes for 1950 and 1951. He •has not been sentenced pending a ruling on his appeal for a new trial. The government charged Solomito .owed the $110,000 as back taxes on a quarter of a million dollars he earned from 1048 to 1953. A government spokesman confirmed Solomito made the payment, but he said tax authorities still are not sure how much the 40-year-old father actually owes.

One of the most interesting 'programs during New York City's Senior Citizen's month was the all day fashion show and grooming demonstration for older people. This was sponsored by The Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies and was held at Christ Church, Park Avenue. For the first time professional fashion and grooming experts paid attention to the needs of the older person. Following are a few quotations from the address of Albert J. Abrams, director of the New York State Joint Legislative Committee on Problems of Aging. Mr. Abrams said, "America's older people need to throw off the black garb of defeatism and despair into which a youth-geared civilization has oast them. Also, "Grandma should not dress like Marilyn Monroe but the new look for senior citizens must call for dignity, not despair, or optimism, not retreat. A new wardrobe at 60 will, make one feel like 40 and a sparkling dress or hair style will act like one of the new miracle energizers." Avoid Black It seems to me that those are ringing inspirational and fundamental words which need to b^ said over and over again. People think themselves into old age and adopt the black dreary attire to match it. I have been harassing my readers for years to get out of the black habit. Many mature women wear it like a uniform. Colors do wonders not only for your skin and hair but for your spirit. On the second day of Senior Citizens month, A. Bernice Quimby, federation executive editor said that the purpose of the meeting was "to stimulate public interest in the clothing and grooming needs of a dramatically expanding older age population, and to emphasize to older people themselves that attractiveness and charm are not attributes of the young alone." Miss Quimby called attention to the fact that there are now 14'A million people past 65 in the United States and that it is estimated that this number will increase' to 21 million by 1970. It seems to me that the future certainly belongs to age as well as to youth especially in light of current medical strides to make middle and older age more vital, to prolong the youthful portion of life. .

(UP) - A million and a half words ircm the prolific pen of Mark Twain lie unpublished and untapped in 11 filing cabinels h«ld by the author's estate. But if the plans of Prof. Henry Nash Smith materialize, Twain fans will have to build new shelves for their libraries. There is even a bit more Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn to come. Smith, fourth literary editor of the Twain estate, wants tj publish six volumes of the unpublished material. Work has already started on another volume containing documents' related to the composition of the Tom Sawyer and H u c k IFinn books. Edited by Walter ! Blair of the University of Chicago, it will include two unfinished pieces entitled, "Huck And Tom Among The Indians" and "Tom I Sawyer's 'Conspiracy." In addition, the Harvard University Press will soon publish a book of the 40-year correspondence be- tween Twain and novelist - editor William Dean Howells. All this, despite the fact that Smith and his three predecessors as literary editor of the estate- Albert Bigelow Paine, Bernard de Vote and Dixon Wecter — have already published 19 volumes since Twain's death in 1910. At that time Twain left all his unpublished writings to be administered by the state, with the profits of publication to go to his daughter Clara, who lives in San Diego, Calif. "It is possible that there U little of commercial trade value left," says Smith, i "but there is much that should be made available for historians, scholars and others interested in the life and works of '.his great American author. "You could say we have now reached the scholarly phase of the publication of Twain's works."
