They have a ledger book in which they've xept track of all the wedding, baby and anniversary gifts they've sent in the past 10 years. Each gift is described and the amount spent has been carefully recorded. They are inviting people they haven't seen in years merely to get a gift. I don't want people at a sacred ceremony just because they're good prospects for a present. My parents think this is outrageous but since they're not paying for the wedding they refuse to voice their fellings. My fiance has ,go:ie along with her folks. She says they've been very generous givers and • no'w is their chance to cash in. I say this is lousy. She says it's practical. What do YOU say?-MIKE I say it's "lousy", too. Is this girl getting married for love-or to get even? Such commercialism is nauseating. Since the folks have excellent records it's a wonder they don't -send a bill with the invitation, based on what THEY spent. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do about it, since they're There must be some hint of a man's intentions before he declares open warfare in a laxicab. * * * Dear Ann: My husband's nephew is spoiling our marriage. 'Din's child is; the most destruetive and irritating brat I've ever seen. He tails- his grandparents to shut up and screams until he gets his way. He has walked on my furniture with muddy shoes, drawn pictures on the living room walls, driven his tricycle into my coffee table and put peanuts and candy in the fish-bowl. When I told my husband that I was going to grab that kid one of these days and teach him a thing or two, he said I'd better not lay a hand on him because he is NOT my child. Must I put up with this disgusting behavior forever? It's making a nervous wreck out of me. BETH P. Your husband should not expect you to sit in silence and permit this junior tornado to wreck your 'home.

Let's hope they operate this;your house until he learns to be- business at a profit or you'll never hear the end of it. * * * Dear Ann: You've answered lots of tough questions but I'll bet this one will slump you. I'm a good looking woman (not gorgeous) who wants very much to be married again. I've gone out with several likely prospects, but the minute they learn I'm a divorcee there's trouble. They dedicate themselves to breaking down my virtue. Why does a man figure that a woman who has been married should be grateful for any crumb'.' Why do they always say "you have nothing to lose!" I'm getting tired of wrestling matches in taxi-cabs. Do you think perhaps if I didn't mention my unfortunate marriage that these men would behave better? Please give me some help.

(UP)— Fireman today believed a faulty oil stove triggered the inferno which engulfed an eight-room tame house Sunday, burning to death eight young children. The fire apparently started shortly after Mrs. Marie-Ange Denault, 32, had left for 7:30 a.m. Mass with her 13-year-old son Robert, leiaving the other eight children with their -sleeping father. Mrs. .Denault had turned up the stove at her husband Lionel's request shortly before leaving the house. Denault, 38-year-old pulp and paper worker, suffered , third degree burns and cuts in trying to save the children. He had two of them, in his arms at one point, but he was so badly burned they managed to wriggle loose' in their panic. Denault escaped through a ground floor window. M!rs. Denault knew nothing of the tragedy until she and her son returned from church to see the i one-and-a-half story building blazing. Style News for You beauty care.
