I went steady almost two years with • •wonderful guy, named Hap. I gave him too many privileges (Which I'm sorry for now.) He went into the armed forces several months ago, and it was understood that my heart belongs to him, but 1 could date others. Now I've fallen for another f e 1- low who is perfectly divine. I know I'm in love with him, and the other ro- • mance was just puppy -love. I wrote Hap that it was all over between us and I hopes he'd wish me luck. Instead of wishing me luck he said he'd break my neck if I didn't keep my word and wait for him. He also said he'd tel the other guy everything and I'd come out looking pretty cheap (My new fellow thinks I'm lily white.) I've been a faithful reader o your column since I was 13 Please •help me, Ann. Hap comes home next month.—KITTEN Dear Kitten: If you've been a faithful reader of my column since you were 13 how come you haven' been taking the advice? My math expert tells me yoi started to go steady at age 14 This was Mistake Number One That bit about "too many privil eges" was Mistake Number Two which often follows Mistake Num ber One. NQW, of course you must tel your current fellow about Hap (No — not every little deta natch) but enough to give him th idea that you spent a lot of Urn with Hap and that you weren exactly an angel of virtue.) I this way you reduce the effective ness of the heel's artillery in cas he follows through on his threa Above all, don't let Hap black mail you. Dear Ann: I'll leave it to yen Who Is wrong, my husband o me? Every morning I drive him t work because I like to have th car during the day and if h drove it would just sit outside h office. It's also convenient bccaus I drop our youngster off at schoo Now and then when we see h fellow office workers at the bu stop we pick them up. I've always sat in the front seat with my husband and he never suggested it should be any different. This morning we picked up the office manager who my husband looks up to as quite a big shot. When he opened the back door to sit with the boy my husband said "Margaret, get in the back so Tom can sit up front with me." I was shocked and humiliated but got In the back seat and «ald olhing. That evening I told him how I It and his reply was "When a oman is too ignorant to know or place, then a man has to 11 her." How about this?- URNT Dear Burnt: Your husband had > business putting you in the ack seat. As far as a woman "knowing er place" is concerned, tell him ou always thought a woman's lace was beside her husband- hrough thick and thin, for rich r or poorer, in sickness and in ealth, 'til death does them part. Dear Ann: Our oldest daugh- r received an engagement ring or Christmas. We all like her ance a great deal, but he prac- cally lives at our house and I'm ircd of it. He manages to stay for every meal and feels free to snack on vhatcver is in the house. When mentioned this to my daughter he practically became livid with age. Her father took her side, nd now I'm in the dog house. Was I wrong?—THELMA Dcor Thclma: Some people have rouble being generous with food Demise of proverty suffered in heir youth.

Griffith is being recalled here with the publication of the first biography of the film pioneer. Veteran writer Homer Croy has turned out an engrossing study o the late director, called "Star Maker." The title doesn't seem apt. Certainly Griffith did discov er and develop a large number o movie greats. But his big achieve ment was not in fostering talent but developing film technique. He was the great innovator, the one man who elevated films int< a story-telling medium. It was hi who discovered most of the cam era techniques which are used to day. The Croy book is filled with ex cellenl detail on the nature of Griffith's peculiar genius. We learn that the director invented the closeup during the filming of "For the Love of Gold" in 1909. The story, stolen from a Jack London tome, dealt with two Alas- ken thieves who distrusted each other. The climax depended on what the thieves were thinking. Until then, thought had been expressed on the screen via "dream balloons," double exposures that showed what was going on in the actor's mind. Griffith had the idea of moving the camera in to show the expressions on the actors' face. The idea was revolutionary; films had always been done in longshots, Earl Sifers OflolaDies TOLA, Kas.
