gight Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Ann Landers Boys^Such Good Husbands, They've Forgotten Mother Dear Ann: Your column honoring the mother-in-law was very "ice. I couldn't help but notice most of the letters came from MEN. The thing that puzzles me is this: Do these men who are so nutty over their mother-in-laws know they have a mother? Nowadays Mother is the forgotten woman . . .especially where «er sons are concerned. My own sons went over to their wives families when they married and my sister's boys did the same thing. This seems to be the style. I sometimes wonder why the husband doesn't take his wife's rame instead of changing her name to his. Tiiey might as well, since they become a part of the wife's family as soon as tiie knot is tied. I raised my boys to be good husbands. In fact, they are such good husbands they've forgotten that they're sons, too.—MRS. A. R. Dear Mrs. A. R.: Your letter is sad, and there is some truth in what you say. However, every family situation is different. All the same, I can't help but recall 3 little poem I heard many years ago: A son is a son Till he fakes a wife- Bui a daughter is a daughter All of her life. * * * Dear Ann: My husband is in his middle 50's. and has. decided to take up the violin for "relaxation".

The sum was the estimated U. S. taxpayer dollars saved by not having to train replacements for the more than 2,500 first term airmen who decided to make a career of the Air Force during tiie campaign period. In the background during the ceremony, tte "Tree of Peace" swayed gently in the wind, another symbol of the reenlistees. Among ics branches were strung 250 light bulbs, each representing 10 first term arimen who stayed in the Air Force. Also in the background was SAC's Honor Roll, a 20 by 60 foot billboard on which was an oil painting symbolizing peace through the Air Force and'a listing of the names of the SAC Wing and Air Base Group Commanders whose organization had contributed first term reenlistments to the "Tree of Peace". Among this list appeared the name of Colonel Henry J. Chisholm, Commander of the 4041st Air Base Group.

For instance, "All husbands are alike, but they have different faces so you can tell them apart." —Anonymous. Sir.ce men are individuals, and husbands are men, they therefore bavo varying personalities and characters but there IS a discernible pattern. It may be comforting to remember that some of the arguments and disagreements you and your husband may have are due to the fact that he is a man and you are a woman.

It took me a iohg time to realize that it was just an intensified male and female situation. If you will^hink of it in this way, you will discover the same sort of humor in many of your domestic problems. I solved ttie "talking it out' irritant in this way: The day after our difference I would write a letter to my husband and I would have his promise to answer it. It's amazing how few letters I have written because I had to wait until the following day to do so! Folks are so apt to believe that their problems are unique. Most problems you have are universal. This is probably truer in marriage than in any other human relationship. So, do not take your clashes or yourself too seriously, and if you really wish to enjoy marriage, do •not expect to change your husband. Like him as he is! Speedboat Champ Dies In Big Race MIAMI BEAOH (UP) — Italian speedboat champion Ezio Selva's pre-race statement "this is my last race" became a prophecy Sunday when his sleek, high-powered hydroplane carried him to instant death in the annual Orange Bowl R e g a 11 'a's International Grand Prix. The cheers of a crowd of 20,000, including Selva's 20-year-old son, turned to horrified screams as the 56-year-old driver's 800 kilogram Moschetierre made a daring run for the lead then went into a crazy death dance on Biscayne Bay directly in front of the judges stand. Apparently a wave threw the nose of the red-hulled speedster up and it spun along on its tail at 100 miles per hour for what seemed agonizing seconds. Then il somersaulted forward, roiled onto its side and knifed bow first into the water. .Selva apparently was struck by the cowling and engine as the boat hit the water with tremendous impact. Only then was his lifeless body thrown free. A rescue boat found the body floating face down in a pool of blood about 50 feet away from the wreckage. Before the race, Selva told reporters: "I'm getting too old and I'm going to leave racing to my son, Luciano." Monday Evening, December 30, IWf.

Bob Mitchum's Son to Co-Star With Father Mishawaka Boy, 15, Killed While Hunting MISHAWAKA (UP) -John McCuen, 15, Mishawaka, was killed by a gift rifle late Saturday while hunting with two companions near here. Accompanying McCuen on the fatal trip were Patrick Radanovich, 10, and Edward Hardy. 15, both of Mishawaka. All three youths were tryiig out new rifles received as 'Christmas gifts. The gun carried by Patrick discharged accidentally and the bullet struck John in the back of the head. He was killed outright. Patrick ran home and informed his parents. He was suffering from shock and could not immediately tell authorities how the acci dent happened. Arthur Murray Show Fails To Click as Video Feature tendency By WILLIAM EWALD United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK (UP)—"This," said Arthur Murray, a gentleman who once taught Helen O'Connell dancing in a 'hurry, "is the American way of doing the Cha-Cha — one, two, one, two, three." And true to his word, Murray proceeded to hot-Cha-Cha his way along the polished floors of NBC- TV while tons of instructors from his studios bounded with calculat- ^S! 61 ?,^.! ^ S«T5 "2" I ch^ck wM=h"he and the Baird puppets.

Miss Bankhead won the contest (if that iis the word for 'this sort of organized mess) and received a ryn, a couple who seem to have invented dancing, may do well with their feet on the floor, but as far as TV goes, they're strictly foot-in-the-mouth.

In a way the Murray show pointed up the philosophy (I use the word loosely) that guides of so many TV offerings — forget ideas and just concentrate on stars.

View Hobbled Giant Television, the child that crippled the movie industry, took a sympathetic peek at the hobbled giant Sunday on CBS-TV's "Seven Lively Arts." There were interviews with producers David Selznick, Otto Preminger, Sam Spiegel, Joe Mankiewicz and actor-producer Kirk Douglas. They talked abou'; the decline of the big studio and the ;rend toward independent produc. Jon and were pretty repititive. Sloughed off were the increasinj production of movies for teenagers, the boom in drive-ins and the new audience for art films.

"Immediately after taking off, ie pilot, Squadron Leader Mi- khailik, flew almost vertically to a height of 19,000 meters," it said. The newspaper said he felt his aircraft had still not reached the limit and "he went even higher." HOLLYWOOD (UP)—The country may not be ready for another Mitchum, but ready or not Bob's 16-year-old son, Jim, co-stars with in a new.movie. Slumped on a couch in his office, Bob said, "I don't intend to support Jim forever, so I put him to'work. Now he can pay his own income tax." Mitchum the elder has a quizzical, bemused approach to parenthood—a refreshing switch from the "how can I protect my boy from the limelight?"-tack employed by most stars. Because Bob was a juvenile hobo riding freight cars when he was 16, the broad-shouldered actor gets a kick from the normal trials and tribulations of his teenage sons. In addition to Jim, there is Chris, 14, and daughter Petrine, 5. Reveal Own Scars "I don't know if you could call me a strict disciplinarian," Mitchum says. "I've had no precedent because my dad died when I was only two. "There is no handbook on how movie stars should raise kids.

Jim Above Average Mitchum's whimsy showed through when he was asked what subjects Jim majored in. "He majors in 'goofing off at University High," he grinned. A few minutes later Papa called Jim and was surprised to discover the boy is an above average math major in his senior year. "I have no objections to Jim jecoming an actor. He's had no formal training, so I raised havoc witli him on the set whenever he goofed or got self • conscious in front of the cameras. I was much rougher on him than on any actors I've ever worked with. "He was paid a minimum salary of $280 a week. I'm a producer first and a father second."
