Saturday Evening, June 15, 1957. Ann Landers Romance Has Same Chance As Snowball in Sahara Dear Ann: I'm a girl 28 who has gone with a man four years. I've kept him out of jail by making good his rubber checks. When he needed money to attend his mother's funeral, I gave him $300. Later I found out his mother died 10- years ago. He's done me this •way ever since I've known him but I've always been willing to forgive and forget. Two weeks ago I found some women's things in his laundry bag. We had a fight and -I threw him out of my apartment and tossed the laundry after him. He hasn't been around since and I'm so lonesome I could die. I know I'm nuts, but I love the buy. How can I put him out of my life when the torch is blazing to beat the band? Do you think if I wait him out, this romance has a chance?— BABE Your romance has the same chance as that proverbial snowball in the Sahara. Look at the record. My advice is to put down that torch or join the welder's union, Babe. You've thrown away four good years on the bum and the future holds only more of the same. Dear Ann: When I read the letter from the 15-year-old girl who •was so eager to be popular that she was willing to offer anything, I was struck dumb. This girl could have been ME, 10 years ago. Your advice was excellent, Ann. into respectability, ANYONE can. —M.G.F. Dear Ann: I'm not a youngster, so please don't ignore this plea for help because it may sound j like a confused child. | I'm a married woman whose father passed ' away IB months ago. I adored my dad and we were very close. For the past six months I've dreamed about him every night. When I awake to find him gone I usually go into a crying spell. My husband says it's time I got out of this depression. He suggested I take down Dad's picture, but it didn't help. Is there something radically wrong with me? Why can't I get over grief like other people? Please help me. I am worried about myself.—L. G. You dream about your dad every night because you hate to accept the fact that he's gone from this life. You return in your dreams to the pleasant days when he was with you. In the course of a lifetime most of us lose our parents. Be grateful for the years you had your father. Now that your role as a devoted daughter has ended, concentrate on being a loving wife. Life is for the living. Get some professional help if the dreams persist. CONFIDENTIALLY: HONEST TOM: Of course you did the right thing, even if the woman did not. Plan Summer Kindergarten DELPHI, Ind.—A^new program in the form of a summer kindergarten, for those pupils who will enter school next fall will be inaugurated in Delphi Monday, according to the announcement of Ross Tipton, superintendent o£ schools. Sessions will be held each morning, Monday through Friday, from 9 to 11:30 o'clock from June 17 until July 26 with a vacation period on July 4 and 5. Mrs. Doty will have one group at Monroe street school and Mrs. Mason will work with the Hillcrest group. There will be no charge to the parents for the summer kindergarten, but parents are responsible for transportation to and from school. To equalize the size of the classes some parents whose child ordinarily would attend the Monroe street school may be asked to send their child to Hillcrest for kindergarten, Tipton said.

I couldn't get through the day without a pint of gin. I looked 10 years older than my age and would go out with anyone who'd buy me a drink. It was a police matron who saved my life.

Par- i filled with bicyclists going to and The bicycle Is one item that is less expensive today than it was 60 years ago. Recently I called your attention to the value and fun of bicycle riding. The bicycle has had such a turbulent 'and interesting history that I think you might like to hear about it. Did you know that May 19th was the anniversary of the first bicycle built in the United States and that there are more than 24 million cyclists in this country, with the number on the upgrade? In the gay nineties the bicycle was a terrific fad. In spite of the son died in a Louisville hospital of injuries suffered when his car figured in an accident near Jeffersonville. Summer Slippers from work, and on holidays and weekends the country roads and parks were cluttered with them. Policemen mounted on their cycles chased speeders who were going more than 10 miles an hour! These preceded the modern hot- rodders just as several bicycle mounted units in the army were forerunners of mechanized troops. Most cities had their cycle club.

Twelve of these escutcheons, each measuring nearly a yard across, will comprise the arch. Upon each is emblazoned one part of the twelve-segment Scout Law. At each side of the gateway wil be insignia that will identify the Three Rivers Council troop's camp ing area, which will measure 75 by 115 feet.

Government Speeds Anti-Merger Move NEW YORK (UP)—The government has speeded iLs attempt to block the merger of two of the nation's largest steel producers in an action which could bring a court decision in "months instead of years." Asst. U.S. Atty. Gen. Allen Dobey asked for a summary judgment in Federal Court Thursday to block the merger of Bethlehem Steel Corp. and Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. The court gave the companies until Sept. 16 to reply. It set Nov. 4 for arguments. The government filed an antitrust action against the merger last December claiming the merger tends'towards monopoly in the steel industry by forming a giant with assets in excess of two billion I dollars. cycles became cheaper and there was a boom in the children's market. Every girl, and especially every boy, awaited with jmpati- ence the day when the first'bicyclc would appear under the Christmas tree or as a birthday gift. During this period the number of adult riders decreased dramatically. During the late thirties the pendulum began to swing the other way. Riding was recommended as a good health measure and figure improver and parents began to borrow their children's cycles or bought one of their own. Pedal pushing family excursions became very popular. When World War II arrived production was cut back and the "Victory" mode's went to war workers. Because of gas rationing' goafs'.
