iSiaht Logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Ann Landers Suicide Threat Puts Man on Same Level as 7-Year-Old Dear Ann: I was engaged for two years. The invitations were ordered when my fiance gave me the shocking'news. He'd gotten a young girl in trouble and ha<5 to marry her. I was heartbroken. My follr n.it me away for two months and I almost had a nervous breakdown. This was 14 months ago. I've made a good adjustment and am dating again. Last week my former fiance came to my pla-ee of employment and begged me to talk to him. He poured out a tearful story of how wretched he's been. He wants to divorce his wife because she's lazy and ignorant. He said the baby looks just like her and he doesn't care a thing about the child. Now he wants me more of our own just yet. What can we do? — MRS. J. M; JR. You can move out even if it means renting a broom closet over a bowling alley. Whatever you save financially, it's costing you double, emotionally. It's not your husband's place to discipline this wild one. You are both considered intruders or the girl would have been put in her place long ago. Pack your bags and vamoose. * * • Dear Ann: Yesterday our 12 year old son came home and told us something that was shocking. In his English class each child had to write a report on a foreign country. One of the youngsters chose Sweden . . and started with Ike Plans Message For Truman Library WASHING-TON (UP)—President Eisenhower plans to send a message next month to the dedication ceremonies for the Truman Library at Independence, Mo.

I'd hate to be responsible for a suicide. Help me. please. This is serious. — JENNIE What this character does with his life is HIS problem — not yours. The great msiority of those so to whom who threaten suicide intimidate the person do on they are dependent. This fellow is operating on the same- level as a 7-year-nld boy who tells his mother If.she won't give him a dime he'll run away from home, get pneumonia and die. and she'll be sorry. T?ll him you are not Interested his brains knocked out." We are Swedish people, Ann, and think such a remark is insulting. My son said everyone laughed and the teacher didn't say a single word. What do you think about such goings-on in a school room? - MRS. M. J. H. This li a pretty lame joke . . . and an old one, too. When I heard it, it was the Norwegian who had his brains knocked out. I don't think the teacher should let a crack against any group get by .... joke or no joke. W # * CONFIDENTIALLY: ELOISE: Of course you ought to buy her a new water pitcher.

New York City's Day Centers have proved to be lifesavers to thousands of Senior Citizens. This year on April 29th Mayor Wagner proclaimed May as Senior Citizen's month in New York City and thereby launched a tremendous program for these older persons. This was designed to impress on them the fact that older years can be creative and happy,' productive and busy, that many older men and women are active in practically every field,'that age is not depend- turned over to the federal government.

Don't let him saddle you with what could be a plenty sick relationship. * * * Dear Ann: My husband and I are both 21. He expects to go into the service any day. Our first child is due in August. We live with my husband's par- wits because we're trying to save money. My 15-year-old sister-in-law makes life miserable for us both. She's sassy and has her mother wrapped around her little finger. I know that she sneaks out at night and goes with men twice her age, she drinks, smokes and has a terrible temper. When my husband tries to correct her, she flies Into a rage and tells him it's HER house not HIS. Last night they had a terrible fight. When his mother came home she sided with the girl and wouldn't even listen to our version of the story.

Day centers, schools, churches and government agencies participated in making the Senior Citizen's project a most successful one. No one can estimate the closed doors it may have opened, the horizons it no doubt enlarged, or the hope and stimulation it brought to thousands. Just to give you an idea let me list a few of the activities -which were carried on during the month. There was an exhibition of painting, ceramics and sculpture all done by men and women 60 years old or over. There were many conferences and lectures about nutrition with special emphasis on the dietary needs of the older person. ent on the number of years one has .There were checkers,' chess and shuffleboard tournaments.

Hedinger, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wenton Hedinger, smashed a home run in a high school baseball game Tuesday, then fell dead of a heart attack as he crossed home plate. CLAIMS STABILIZED INDIANAPOLIS (UP) - The Indiana Employment -Security Division received 37,742 claims for unemployment compensation last week, 47 less than in the previous week. The total included 4,270 claims from newly-unemployed, and was about 10 per cent below the total for the same week last year. lived. If anyone doubts that boredom and loneliness or the feeling of being on the shelf and no longer needed do not lead to physical illness, all he or she would have to do would be to investigate some of the records of these day centers, Made Happy I visited several of them a few the learning ability of older persons.
