Your Problems — bv Ann Landers — DEAR ANN LANDERS: As the owner of a neighborhod hardware store I would like to thank you, personally, fo r stimulating business. Recently you published a letter in your column about a teenage •girl who did a great deal of talking on the telephone. Her mother decided to put a 5-minute time limit on her phono conversations. She bought an automatic c^g timer and placed it by the tele-phone. Since that letter appeared I have sold seven egg timers to mothers of teenagers. Each mother told me she got the idea from Ann Landers' column. One woman who came in to buy an egg timer bought a power lawn mower. Another woman paid her bill which was long overdue. My best wishes to you, Ann, and my thanks. — HAPPY MERCHANT Dear Happy: You're welcome. But I do hope I made it clear that a mother who sets the egg timer at 5 minutes is a bit hard- boiled. A 15 minute limit is more realistic and not unreasonable. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm not a great letter 'writer so I'll get right to the point. I've always trusted my husband and felt relaxed when he had to take a business trip or stay in town and work late. It never occurred to me that he'd i-^or violate that trust. I'm not a fiigid person, nor have I lost my looks in the twenty years we've been married, so it was a real blow when I discovered he hud been untrue to me on two occasions — with the same girl. He has bogged me to forgive him, swears he doesn't want a divorce or a separation. He does not know why he did it — says he just felt like kicking up his i.pch. I'm 37 years old and still care for him a great deal Now I feel I've wasted 20 years on someone who wasn't worth it. We have five children so I must find the answer. Can you help me? — EDGE OF DOOM Dear Edge: You have five good reasons to forgive and forgot so don't be a fool and let your injured pride drive you into an imposiblc corner from which you may never extricate youri self. He has let you know he's sorry. He wants a chance to prove he can be a good husband. Now is your chance to be bigger than cvtr in his pyes. Don't muff it. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: We are two teenage sisters who need your help. All our skirts are at least two inches longer than they should be. We've talked until we have run out of wind, but mom says the skirts are going to stay where they are and that's final. We feel out of place with the other girls who appear so sharp in their short skirts. It's getting so we hate to go anyplace because we look like we just came over from the Old Country. Almost every day mom quotes 'what Ann Landers said" so we know she has respect for your opinion. Please be on our side. Thank you. — LONG SKIRTED SISTERS Dear Sisters: Hem length* should be guided to a degree by fashion trends. But common sense and good judgment is more important than any trend. Each of us knows better than Trigere or Dior what our legs look like. If you gals want your hems above the knee I'm with your mother. A good length for ! teenagers is about two inches below the middle of the knee cap. * * Confidential to Dirty Trick. Why expect your friends to judge you by your good intensions while you judge them on the basis of their behavior? It's awfully hard to read .minds these days. Get with it, Kiddo. To learn the boody-traps of teenage drinking, write for Ann Landers booklet "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your ret|i(esl 20c in coin and a long, | self-addressed, stamped envelope. A-^n Landers will be glad to help you with yoiir problems. Send ihem to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope.
