You never saw a more reluctant bride and bridegroom than the two of us. I was three months pregnant. Neither of us wanted to get married, but we were pushed bodily into the church by parents from both sides. Today we have a lovely home, a nice car and four beautiful children. We aUo have love. My husband and I fee! that our marriage has turned out much better than many o f our friends who thought they were head over heels in love when they marched down the aisle. So don't be 'so quick to make the statement that an "unwilling groom makes a poor husband", Mrs. Landers. Sometimes they make better husbands than the starry-eyed, eager boys. Our marriage proves it.— L.R. * * * Dear L. B. Thank you for your letter. I'm happy that in spite of •a bad start, your marriage turned out well. But yours is the exception and not the rule. A couple who must be pushed "bodily" into a church would not be My candidates for the oricle and groom most likely to succeed. The important thing is that your marriage has "worked out — but please concede that you did it the hard way. Read on: Dear Ann. I wish to heaven you had been around ten years ago to give me some advice. I could have used it. I refer to your statement "Jn unwilling groom makes a very poor husband". My husband was an "unwilling WrArtm" ^inrl T uric" t.hii 4,-n/^U inn !\ 1 getting married and it never dawned on me that there was an alternative.. My father threatened the boy with jail or worse. Mother said I \vouid learn to love him "later". We were both toe scared to argue. I was 18 the day my baby. girl was born. She lived only three days. I was so sick I almost died. The doctor told me I'd never have another • child. My husband has had three scandalous affairs in the last three years. To him, home is just a place to changp clothes. He hates rje because I forced him into a marriage he cidn't want. When- over he gets three beers in him he throws it up io me tiiat I "ruined his life". I'd have divorced him long ago but it's against our religion. I made my bed and I intend to lie in it. Your advice is very sound, Ann. Just keep telling people there's only ONE reason to get married, and that's because two people love <?ach other enough to want to spend their lives together. Thanks for letting mo get this off my chest. —JUST BETTY Dear Betty: Your letter illustrated vividly a point I've tried to make many times. There are worse things in life than to' be an unmarried mother — and one of :hem is to be an unmarired wife. Thanks for writing. * * * Dear Ann: Those "ConFMen- tials" at the fcot of your column drive me nuts. Why do you take up perfectly good space to print answers to problems that so few readers understand? I suggest you let ALL ot us in on what it's nil nhnnf nr sfain it pntirolv Thncp Report Items Taken From Parked Vehicle The Christmas spirit failed to have any effect on at least one person here, according to Ray Hinkle, lllOVa Spear street, who Monday reported to police the theft of items valued at about S27.50 including three Christmas packages, from his car. Hinkle told officers the three packages, valued at $10; a two-tone zipper jacket valued at $15; and a carton of cigarettes. He said the items were taken from his unlocked- car while it was parked, on Fourth street, between Broadway and North street, between 11 p.m. and midnight Saturday. Dyer, Ind., Youth Dies ia Plane Crash DYER, Ind. (UP)—Ed Hoexnig, 20, Dyer, was killed Sunday when his two-seat plane crashed south of here on his father's farm. Hoernig's passenger and sister- in-law, Mrs. Roberta Hoernig, 24, was burned severely. State Police said the 1943, single-engine Taylorcraft apparently was "flying too low" when it hit a tree on the Hoernig farm.

Combine imagination, ffooc- taste and safety ideas when 2/ou 'frim your tree, fty RAYMOND tAJOIt Central Press Association- Correspondent PNECORATING the Christmas *-' tree is a family affair, whether you choose a majestic tree that reaches to the celling, er make your own miniature model to place atop a table or buffet. Scf aside one evening just for this project. Maybe in your home it's traditional to reserve this fun for Christmas Eve, Or, perhaps you put up your true on a much earlier date, and invite friends to help string popcorn and cranberries, wire balls or cut stars of paper. But whether you Include friends or just your own family, make this occasion a real party, climaxed, with carol sing. Ing and festive refreshments. How effective your tree looks \vill depend on where it's placed, the size, shape and design of trimmings. First of all, let it stand free end clear, between windows, in a fcay, or against a long: wall. Re- errange the furniture if necessary—the finest balsam fir can't help but lose some of its stately beauty if jammed into a tiny corner of the living room. If you like, make your tree the eld-fashioned kind—loaded with ornaments saved through the j-ears. Or, perhaps you prefer the modern, themed tree—one vith a definite color scheme, or one which holds just one or two kinds of ornaments. FROSTY, FAIRYLAND TREE: Spray tree frosty white Or use' thick, creamy soap suds to cover all branches. PJace giant red ball at the top of the tree, tthen, loosely tie five or six red balls of different sizes in a bunch. Hang the grapellke clusters of balls at attractive spots on your tree. CHRISTMAS GREETING TREE: This tree !s trimmed entirely with greeting cards which tell your friends how much you appreciate their thoughtfulness. Set -trqo up early in December, tie on cards as they're received, tlace tree in a spot where light will shine on cards, show up their brilliant colors. 'MILITARY BASE: Base for this tree is as unusual as the trimmings. Round occasional table is wrapped with heavy con- •truction paper, rimmed with loll. Cording, makes the spokes as on a drum. Toy instruments and scores of musip on a wall carry, out the Christmas theme. SILVER AND WHITE TREES Natural green tree Is adorned with silver and white ornaments which make a striking effect, With such a delicate color scheme, use no more ornaments than tree can gracefully carry; space them far enough apart to allow green of tree to show through. MONEY TREE: This one is perfect for children. Use ropes of colored foil coins and swags of shiny beads. Buy beads in different colors that are already strung. As to decorating your Christmas tree, it goes without saying: that lighted candles are dangerous and should be avoided. Glass or metal decorations are best, for these are fireproof as well as attractive. If the lights and the wiring- have been stored from a previous year, be sure to go over the insulation inch by inch—especially where it has been bent, twisted or knotted—as cracked insulation very frequently falls away and fails to protect. Don't put too many light circuits in one outlet. The fact that it worked fine that way last year doesn't mean much. Yoli may have added a fixture or two in the interim and the house wiring (another year older, incidentally) may be carrying its maximum load. If possible, distribute the power requirements among several outlets. Don't let lights burn overnight, and don't leave tht lights on when you leave the house for any ength of time. A prettily lighted tree may be a joy to come home to, but not if the home is gone. Other safety suggestions In- elude these. For example, placo electric trains away from the :ree. Use a switch some distance from your tree for turning the electric lights off and on, Do not plug or unplug the lights beneath the tree. After you have opened all your ;hristmas gifts, remove all th* ift wrappings and packing materials from your living room and dispose of them. The flaming plum pudding ana he blazing yule log are holiday traditions, but the incendiary Christmas tree is—all too often —a contemporary tragedy. Fol- ow safety rules and keep your Christmas safe and happy. _,.,, , .downright dangerous. ,,~ «.~ -..

We find '' ourselves in a vicious, circle. A slower pace, times of relaxation, an improved outlook and especial- conditions which make us feel the need for them. Hurry, worry, trying to do too much, taking on too many things, living beyond our means, all lead to tensions and .therefore to a poor'j grade of .sleep. This in turn leads jandcrafts. If you are tense, jum- oy kind of a person, why not try one? I mention knitting first because it and knitted clothes and accessories are quite the fad now. Making braided rugs is another relaxer. These two are perhaps best because they require less concentration than many others. _ Exchange your tranquilizers for a handcraft!

The 39-year-old former lightweight contender was shot to death Sunday night in a gangland style killing as he was walking to his job as a longshoreman. Sullivan's body was found in a gutter about 200 feet from his home, his head lying- in a pool of blood. Within minutes of his death police began hearing reports that New York killers had been imported to "get" Sullivan for his part in a dock labor war. One investigators said he may have been killed in retaliation for speaking out against New York leaders of the International Longshoremen's Union. Wecklong Rumors of Killing Police said there had been rumors on the waterfront for a week that a longshoreman was going to be killed. Sullivan went down in a fusillade of bullets fired from a black sedan carrying four men. Police Lt. Joseph F. Doyle said flic gunmen apparently hailed him as he was crossing the street. The shooting occurred seconds after he left his first floor apartment aa 6GO East Fifth St., after having supper with his 83-year-old widowed mother, Mrs. Mary Sullivan. Members of his family heard the shots, but thought they came from a western that Sullivan's nieces and nephews were watching on television. However the boxer's brother-in- law, Joseph Maher, who lived with Logansport. fndiana, Pharos-Tribuno Nice his family on the second floor of the Sullivan house, went to investigate and saw neighbors rushing out of Christmas-decorated houses. HUBCAP STOLEN Police were called just before 1 a.m. Sunday when a neighbor saw thieves take a -hubcap from a car owned by R. G. Bridenbaugh, 827 Seventeenth street, parked in front of his home. The thieves, in a car Bridenbaugh's, sped away af-j the hubcap. I ly exercise, usually will act as natural tranquilizers.
