Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Ann Landers Don't Blame Army for Making Bums of "Nice, Quiet Boys Dear Ann: Your ignorance is showing. The answer you gave "Worried Parents" was the worst I've seen yet. The folks who wrote complained because their son was a perfect gentleman when he went into the Army, and he came out a bum. You gave them no sympathy. In fact, you gave the Army a nice plug. Since when does enforced slavery have a desirable effect on o free people? The Army, Mrs. Landers, is nothing but a giant, prison camp. Any psychiatrist will! tell you that no good can come from forcing a person to associate with inferior individuals who are beneath his level. Should you or anyone else wish to reply to the assertion that the Army is a corrupting influence and a monstrous evil, I shall be very happy to prove you wrong on every count.—B.H. Since you feel the Army is a; "monstrous evil and a corrupting influence" I must assume you think this country would be better! oft with no defenses. \ Your reference to a "free peo-' pie" is interesting. Just how longi do you think we'd remain a free; people if we had no Army? It would be wonderful if there were no armies anywhere, no weapons of destruction ... if all men could live side by side as brothers. But, unfortunately, there's a struggle going on between the free world and the Soviet forces, and we'd jo'.Iy well better not be caught with our plans down. The Army can't be blamed for "making bums out of nice, quiet boys." The military service can work only with the material it receives. The character of a person begins in the cradle and not in the barracks. I£ a boy came home a "bum" the odds are good that he had a good bit of bum in him before he ever saw an M-l. * * # Dear Ann: Please DON'T .print my letter in the paper like I asked. I've changed my mind about the whole thing. I'm in enough trouble now and don't want any more at this time. Thank you very much.—FREDDY Dear Freddy: Don't worry. I wouldn't dream of printing your letter. I'm not looking for any trouble either. Do you think for one minute that I could possibly get a story like yours into the newspaper?

Do you think it's fair for friends, relatives and neighbors to impose on us to fix their hair after hours, when we put in a full day at this work? I wonder if the women who clean, wash and iron all day would like It if they were asked to do the came thing in the home of a friend "as. a favor", several evenings a week. I'm afraid to accept dinner invitations because the last three turned out to be requests for free shampoos, hair cutting and bleach jobs. My neighbor dropped in tonight just as I settled comfortably in the chair to read the paper. It was the first time I'd been off my feet since 8:00 a.m. She brought her wave-set and hair clips. Right now I'm so exhausted I don't even want to shampoo my own hair and it needs it badly. Please print this letter as a public service for the most abused group in the country. —PLAIN MAD Dear Abused Group: I can speak for you, but in the final showdown you will have to speak for yourselves. Of course it's an imposition to expect you to spend your free time twisting curls and cutting hair after you've put in a full day at the shop. But unless you speak up in clear, pear-shaped tones, people will continue to take your time, your energy and your talent. Put that tired and swollen foot down, once and for all. Make it understood that your after-hour services are not available—period. * * * CONFIDENTIALLY: ROCKABILLY RUTH: Fourteen year-olds should not be going steady ... except to school, to the liprary, to church etc Certainly not with each other.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. {Uip)_ Eleven-year-old Donald Kruger played soldier with a live hand grenade Monday. I: blew off his hands and killed him. . Donald's mother said he found it in their closet, apparently left by one of the soldiers from Fort Carson, Cob., \vho had previously lived in the house. "I hope that soldier has this on his conscience as long as he lives," she said. "I knov. I will." The three other boys in the family, who watched Donald pull the pin on the grenade, backed off in fear and escaped serious injuries. It exploded close to his chest, blew off his hands and drove metal fragments into his chest and stomach. Donald tottered into the house screaming: "Mommy, I'm dead! I'm dead!" The boy collapsed, and he died 45 minutes later under surgery. The previous night, the boys showed the grenade to Victor Jcch, Donald's stepfather, who said he didn't know what it was. Police said Jech, a window cleaner, threw the grenade under a bed, not thinking it was dangerous. Rites at Delphi Friday For Donald G.

Tonight is a combination of regret and hope, of the awareness of lost opportunity and future chance, of fun and nostalgia. It is a great tide of emotion which brings to life, with its laughter and tears, •most of our human experience. Render Service Such nights as this render us a service. They jog us out of our ruts and out of our daily narrow viewpoint. They act as a purge for humdrum and negative living. Actually, it is a good thing that a night like this comes only once a year because of the intensity ofj the emotions we experience. I sincerely hope that 1958 will be the best year ever for all of you! I hope that the New Year will ring in laughter, ring out despair and ring in hope, rin_g out pessimism and ring in optimism, ring oui poor health and ring in gooc •health.
