PAGE EIGHTEEN Ann Landers THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA "Frozen" Wife Is Product of Inhibited, Miserable Mother Dear Ann: You and your magic formula. How can you sit there and tell people in one paragraph Don't you feel this is selfish and unfair? At night when the two of us sit down at the dinner table, how to straighten out their mari-• it's a chore to think of something t.31 nrnhlpmc wllon tliov'jm Vioan '•n *r**r ^n ..«« n »>i.l. n _ y»T ' —: tal problems when they've been fighting them out on the battlefield of mixed emotions for years? My wife is a chunk of unfeeling, responsive ice. She's been this way since the day we married. I've bought her books but she's never cracked the cover. We have two children but they are the result of "duty" and have nothing to do with an expression of love or devotion. I've warned her if she doesn't warm up I may be tempted to seek affection elsewhere. She said, "go ahead. Just please don't bother ME." My wife is only 31-years-old. She's a fine person in many ways —attractive, smart and a good mother. But life with an iceberg is difficult. Before you tell me what to do, may I tell YOU, Mrs. Landers, she is FROZEN — HUNGRY FOR LOVE to say to one another. Please give me a word of advice. Sometimes I doa't think I can go on.—(MRS. ALONE You've been left out in right field, Lady, and it's your own blooming' fault. Nobody says you have to be crazy about hunting or fishing, but you could have learned to tolerate }t, and gone along for his company. Bowling is a sport that many women enjoy. Even though you may be punk at it, it could still be fun, and you'd be with your husband instead of sitting home alone. Nobody can freeze at a football game in a racoon coat and galoshes. You just dont want to inconvenience yourself. Admit it. Do you read anything, attend club meetings, meet people? All this could make for interesting conversation at the dinner 'table. Don't blame your husband for a alive. Dear Hungry: Many are cold— marriage that has gone -Bf-t-t-tt but few are frozen. Your wife is I when you've done little to keep it probably the product of an inhibited, guilt-ridden mother who passed this miserable legacy down the line. But don't give up. You say she's an "iceberg." This is a good description in more ways than one. Four-fifths of an iceberg is under the surface. Your job is to get acquainted with the whole woman. I don't pretend to 'be a magician. The best I can do is view a situation with an objective eye. Your wife should have a frank talk with the family doctor. She's not living up to her obligation to you OR herself. Also she's inviting serious troubh when she tells you to "Go ahead.' time, buy a book In the mean- for yourself. Perhaps a change in approach will bring about a change in responses. * * i: Dear Ann: A certain woman who works at the cigar counter in our office building is the laughing stock of the place. She dyes her hair carrot orange and uses blobs of rouge which look ridiculous on her wrinkled skin. Her dresses are the type worn 30 years ago and I must say she presents a hilarious picture. Several of us girls used to enjoy going down to buy gum and peanuts three and four times a day just to look at the old crow. Our boss got very-burned up last week and gave us all a bawling out. Don't you agree that if this SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, IWt SOCIAL HIGHLIGHTS Worthwhile Club J Features Dessert Prior to Meeting A dessert was served at the Friday evening meeting of the . . _ _ _ Worthwhile home demonstration!held Friday evening at the school and attended by more than 500 persons, club at the home of Mrs. Dewey Heyde with Mrs. Mary Fissell as co-hostess. •woman gets herself up like a freak j Nell ' c oct k e . she deserves to be laughed at?— ' THE GIRLS You girls are operating at a 7- year-old level. This woman is to be pitied, not ridiculed. The poor thing is living in the past because she finds life as it is too difficult to face. Her youthful days were no doubt happier and less lonely. Looking upon her as a freak is cruel and shows a shocking lack of insight. How old are you girls anyway? * * • * Dear Ann: After 22-years of marriage I find that my husband and I have very little in common. Our children are on their own, and I feel alone. My husband loves to hunt and fish. I can't stand either. He bowls two nights a week snd likes to go to football games end baseball games. I get cold easily and can't sit out in all kinds of weather. He's 'built his life around things that HE enjoys and I've been left out completely. Contests were eni'oyed with prizes going to Betty -Ellars and Lillian McCIintocfc.

Representatives from the local council returning Josephine Lowmon Observe These Rules and Reduce Kids' Winter Colds Long ago, people believed that decayed leaves caused colds. Sometimes Mother may wonder why her children have all the colds during the winter. As soon as one recovers, another is down and requires care and attention. However, studies which have )een made 'of children and the common cold indicate that this experience is normal. A study made by the nation's largest maker of cold tablets shows that the average school child has six colds and common respiratory illnesses a year. His little sister and brother at home add a couple more annually. Children get their first shortly after school begins. A second wave hits most communities in November, a third the later part of January and February and a fourth in April and May. iVeird Ideas Colds always had been a mystery x> the medical profession until recently. Now newer information s giving insight into this troublesome malady. It is no surprise will observe several rules. Today let me suggest them to you. Of course you know that enough sleep and good nutrition are great aids. Be sure that your offspring have three good meals a day. Do not allow them to dull their ap- petities with sweets before meals. These should come at the end of the meal. Don't let them get overtired. Let them play outdoors to their heart's content, being sure they are warmly dressed, but don't allow them to continue until ex- jhausted. Fatigue, rather than colds cold weather, is the factor in yesterday are: Mrs. George| the 5 ^^. people long ago had Thomas, vice president; Mrs. Wil liam Kepes, secretary; Mrs. Job Mcllwain and Mrs. Mary Emmerd Paul Duddleston, camp chair man, announces a camp commit ten meeting Wednesday evening the 19, at 7:30 p. m. in the Scou Office. held at the }TFW hall in Knox, Ind on November 21.

For instance, people once thought that decaying leaves caused colds. No wonder—since fall colds and falling leaves occurred at about the same time! At one tune people believed that comets were responsible. Had Sputnik, the satellite, appeared then, someone might have thought that it was the reason for the common cold. Cats and face powder also have been blamed. This was before the day of allergies! Actually, you may be able to cut down the number of colds your children have this winter if you weakening resistance. ' If he or she has a cold put the child to bed. Plenty of rest will ward off complications, and the isolation will protect others to some extent. Take his temperature. If Jt is 100 degrees or more, consult your doctor. . See that the child wears a robe and slippers when.he goes to the bathroom. Protect others in fie family by giving the child his own silver, dishes and glasses. Wash thiese separately. Be careful about how he Wows his nose. Do not hold one «ide.. This may cause ear trouble. There is no known cure for a cold. Medication, cough syrup and cold tablets will bring some relief from the symptoms, but these should be prescribed by your physician. Try to avoid this unpleasant experience by keeping the entire family's health at a high level.
