LOGANSPORT PUBLIC UBRW Saturday Evening, June 1, 1957. Anio Landers Complaining Hero Learned Lesson But Lost His Wife Dear Ann: Please understand, from the outset, that I'm a male. I express this point of view at the risk of being called a "traitor to my sex." I blew my cork when I spotted the letter signed J. H. H. He was the guy who wanted Saturday AND Sunday off to do as he pleased and considered himself a hero because he bought his wife a washing machine. The big jerk had six kids and thought his wife was "unfair' to saddle him with "the mob" on Saturday afternoons. A year ago I was thinking crazy, like this fellow. Then, I suddenly found ' myself without a wife. If J. H. H believes he's pressed for a buck NOW, let him try to hire a full-time housekeeper. I'm lucky to have a sitter to stay with my pre-school boys until I get home at night. If these men who yak about.what * soft touch the little woman has (home all day, time her own, etc. etc.) would lake over for one complete day, they's have more respect for Adam's Rib. — BOTH MOM AND POP NOW Hi 4 * Dear Brave Soul: That thunderous ovation was from the large army of females. Your remarks as a member of the "opposition" are Indeed interesting. Would any of you home-makers care to comment on the tough battle the male is waging in the asphalt jungle? * * « Dear Mrs. Landers: I'm 12- years-old, in the 7th grade and would do anything if my mother would let me have a dog. She says she waited 15 years to get a nice home and she's not going to let a dog ruin' the rugs and shed hair on the furniture. I have enough birthday and Christmas money to buy and would even pay for the food and license out of my allowance. My dad said his mother wouldn't let him have a dog when he was young, so he's on my side. Please, will you hlep me out by telling my mother she is being unfair to me? I have promised to do all the work if she will only give me permission to have a dog. I don't even care what kind it is. Thank you, and I will remember your kindness and give you a puppy if I get a lady dog. — BUDDY Dear Buddy: I suggest a compromise. Try for permission to get a large dog, the kind that can stay outside. Give Mom your word that you won't bring the animal Into the house. Repeat your promise to accept all the responsibility- This works fine, — for about three weeks. .Then the mut will •work his way into the house AND mother's heart. She'll wind up walking him, feeding him and loving him more than anyone else. Thanks for your offer, Buddy, but I'd be just as happy if you got * man-dog * * # Dear Ann: Our church auxiliary •would like your opinion on a controversy. The Men's Group asked us for volunteers to serve dinner for 100 men. Only six women offered their services, and, as usual, they were the same ones who do ALL'the unpleasant jobs in an organization. Following the dinner, the men pulled a surprise and passed the hat. They raised a surprising amount. The women had not expect- ed to be paid, but were pleased. Now, those who did not • serve are raising a storm of protest and claim the money should have been turned over to the treasury. What is your opinion? Are the women entitled to keep . the money or should it go to the organization? DON'T KNOW Hooray for the gals who volunteered with no thought of reward — and how nice that they got an unexpected bonus! It's a safe bet that the men were moved spontaneously by their unselfish devotion and decided to surprise them with a token of appreciation. I say the women are entitled to keep the money. They'll probably spend it on comfortable shoes and arch-supports for future church suppers. * * * CONFIDENTIALLY: BORED STIFF: Of course it's boring to sit. around for four hours and listen to other people talk about their children. Especially when you don't get a chance to talk about yours! (Ann Landers will be happy to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper and enclose a stamped self- addressed envelope.) Copyright 1957, Field Enterprises, Inc. Massacre 275 Men in Raid ALGIERS, Algeria (UP)— A band of Algerian extremists killed all 275 male inhabitants of the tiny village of Neluza, 115 miles southeast of Algiers, while the families of the victims watched in terror Thursday, it was reported today. News of the massacre was brought by terrified women and children to a nearby French garrison. According to the reports, the raiders stormed into the village and embarked on an orgy of bloodletting. The reports said none of the 275 males in the village escaped the slaughter. The raiders slit the throats of their victims before the eyes of wives and children. The women and children fled 27 miles to Bordj Bou Arreridj where a French garrison is stationed. French troops rushed to Neluza but the raiders had disappeared. •It was believed the mass killing stemmed from rivalry between the extremist national liberation front movement and the Algerian nationalist movement, and older and less extreme organization. The raiders were believed to be members of the national liberation front. Racing Can Wheel Kills Two Children Three Others Persons Attending Stock Car Race Injured in Accident CLARION, Pa.

The accident occurred on the ,40th lap of the 100-lap feature race at the speedway in Shippensvil'.e, six miles north of this western Pennsylvania community. Wise, in second place at the time, brought his careening racer to a halt.

He said it came "within inches" of smashing into the judges' stand.

The only cure (or a big bulge at the thigh is exercise. Attractiveness is made up of many separate physical and personality attributes. Practically all of these can be improved if we give a little thought to them and use some self-discipline. A big bulge at the thighs, which so many women have, it not a figure asset. Yet this is one of the very first signs of breakdown in a good silhouette. We often • see it on quite young women. You can diet and diet and you will become smaller all over and your bulge at the thigh also will decrease — and it will still be there. The only answer I know for this is exercise. Here are some corrective exercises. 1. Stand tall. Contract the thigh muscles and hold while you count to 15 slowly. Relax. Repeat 15 times. 2. Lie on the floor with your legs straight and your arms on the floor at your sides. Drag your legs apart. Drag them together. Do not lift them from the floor. 3. Lie on your back on the floor legs straight and arms on the floor at your sides, palms facing the floor.' Lift your left leg up at right angles to your body. Cross your left leg over your right and try to touch the floor on the right side of your body as far away from your body as possible. Lift left leg up again at right angles to the body. Return left leg to floor. Do this in four distinct movements—up, across, up, down. After a while do the same thing with your right leg, crossing it over your left. Keep the knees straight. The bulge at the thigh is a question of muscle slump and fatty deposits. If you would like to have my thigh or hip slimming exercises send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request for leaflets No. 3 "Hip Kxercises" and No. 4 "Reducing the Thighs."
