You dont say how old you are, or whether you are married or single but any guy ho pours that much booze for his niece and fools around ith her is a little kinky. I think you both need help.

Dear Ann Landers: Your reply to the neurotic mother who telephoned her daughter seven tunes a day to see "if everything is all right" hit home. In my case, I am the one ho does the phoning. I can't afford a psychiatrist, so will you please tell me why a grown daughter who is married and supposed to be on her own has to be in such close touch with her mother? Sometimes it's more than seven calls it's more like 10 or 12 I am sure I drive her crazy, although she never complains. Please help me sort this one out Hung I'p in Dallas Dear Hung: Those phone calls provide you with a sense of security. You need to find out why you are so unsure of yourself.

You also need to find out if your mother has unwittingly fostered this dependency. I urge you to get with a therapist It need not be a psychiatrist who charges $90 an hour. Call your community health service and explore the alternatives. You will be surprised at how many there are. Dear Ann Landers: We named our son after my grandfather, who was a distinguished judge.

When the boy was about six months old my husband started to call him "Stinky." The name stuck. He's now 4, too old for a name like that How can I put a stop to it? Lone Voice in O. City Dear Voice: When the boy starts school the teachers win call him by his given name. So will his classmates. If his given name is stiff and formal, make up another nickname, and 111 bet "Stinky" bites the dust Doreen Young Fan, left, Robert Fan Jr.

and William Ming Sing Lee, partners of the architecture and planning firm of Lee Fan ExaminerPaul Qlines Family affairs A Kevin Starr Partners Dear Ann Landers: Please help me with a very personal problem. I cant go to anyone I know. When you read my letter you will understand why. My 18-year-old niece is a sexy, voluptuous (good-looking) girt. She comes to my place quite often.

I have seen Vera drink half a fifth of vodka and act perfectly sober. Once, wtien I commented on it, she said, "It takes a lot to konk me out, but when it happens, I don't remember a thing." Vera has been teasing me for a long time flashing her body and telling risque stories. A few weeks ago she drank an awful lot of booze at my place and passed out on the bed I didnt believe she was really out and I still don't I had a few drinks myself and I am ashamed to tell you that I undressed her and took some indecent liberties. (No intercourse.) My conscience bothered me a lot, so I apologized to her a week later. She didnt speak to me for a month.

Now she has started to come by my place again, and is sweet as pie What do you make of this? Do you have any advice for her? Does she need help? If so, what kind? Puzzled in Essex Dear Essex: What she really needs is to stay away from WW Shanghai and at the Shanghai American School. Robert's father, Robert Fan Sr, was one of China's most esteemed architects, a classmate with Louis Kahn at the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture who, upon his return to China, helped to pioneer Western architectural techniques and concepts. He is perhaps best known for his design for the Dr. Sun Yat San Memorial in Nanjing. William Lee's father, T.Y.

Lee, a Chinese movie producer, attended school in the United States at Andover and Amherst Lee's films, many of them dealing with ancient Chinese history, have won recognition at the Cannes Film Festival Doreen Young, meanwhile, was Erow ing up in Hong Kong, where her family was in the ferry business. Doreen's grandfather had been a pioneer Chinese settler in New Zealand, here he was later honored with an exhibit in a museum at Greymouth. Doreen Young wanted to study architecture. Up in Shanghai Robert Fan as coming to the same decision. The two of them met in 1955 in a Harvard classroom at the Graduate School of Design.

Their studies completed, Doreen Young and Robert Fan were married in Hong Kong, where they went into architectural practice. In 1963, the Fans left Hong Kong for New York, where Robert worked at Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and Doreen practiced with Raymond Rado. The following year, the couple moved to San Francisco, where Robert joined Anshen and Allen, and Doreen joined Wurster Bernadi William Ming Sing Lee, meanwhile, had accompanied hi old soccer pal from Shanghai to the United States, matriculating with him at the Phillips Academy at Andover, before going on to Yale. By his senior year at Andover, he was elected captain of the varsity soccer team and a student deacon, and he won the senior English essay contest with an entry entitled "Why I do not want to become a US. citizen." Ironically, Lee's intent to return to Shanghai was soon overcome by world events.

More tomorrow. Among this city's most conspicuous examples of the Chinese professionals, whom Jack Chen in his newly published "The Chinese of America'' says constitute the majority of current immigration from China, are the talented partners of the San Francisco architecture and planning firm of Lee Fan, at 580 Market St The stories of William Ming Sing Ie, Robert Fan Jr. and Doreen Young Fan, the three principals of Lee Fan, serves as a case study of the kinds of people behind v.hat I consider to be the beginning of a veritable explosion of Chinese-American energy and creativity in the San Francisco Bay Area.
