Thursday Evening, June 27, 1957. Ann Landers Woman Deserved Something But Lucky She Didn't Get It 'Dear Ann: Two years ago I did something I'm ashamed of. I stepped out on my husband. It's the old story. I got pregnant and had a little girl. I told my husband everything and he forgave me. We have two older children and he treats all the kids alike. He never brings up the past. Here U my problem. The father of this little girl has never offered to pay support money. He doesn't even ask how she's getting along. When I see him on the street he tips his hat and acts like I'm a distant friend. Of course our love a/fair is over but he was as much to blame as I. If he was a halfway gentleman wouldn't he have offered to pay the hospital bill? He's married and has three kids of his own, but don't you think 1 deserve something?—A.S.D. You deserve "something" all right—and you're plenty lucky you didn't get it. This man has no obligation to you or the child in the eyes of the !aiv. You are both married—but not to each other. Legally your husband is the baby's father. Thank your lucky stars that he's a kind, forgiving soul and is willing to accept another man's child and "treat her as his own." If he's good enough to forget your past, the least you can do is the same. He could have bounced you out on your head and taken your two older children. Count your blessings. 440 Dear Ann: This letter is beingj Complete It Quickly written by a mother and father of three teenage children. We are steady church goers and have a strong moral sense. We would like your opinion on this controversy. The church auxiliary had ' a Young People's Gatherw\ll last night. A dancing contest was announced in advance and two professional dance instructors were asked to judge. The competition was very spirited and the prize was a silver cup. The judges didn't know the contestants, or so they said. The worst possible thing happened. The minister's daughter won first place with her rhumba. As if this wasn't bad enough, her partner was a young man who is digging ditches this summer. We think this is a disgrace to the church. The minister should not have permitted his daughter to enter the contest. The clergy should reflect dignity at all times and this goes for his entire family. What is your opinion? — DISGUSTED CHURCH-GOERS. What are you so exercised about? Did you have some kids in the contest? If dancing isn't against your religion, and I can only assume it isn't since the church auxiliary sponsored the contest, what is your complaint? The minister's children have just as much right to dance as anyone else. As for your implication that the •minister's daughter is keeping company with an undesirable young man, merely because he's digging ditches this summer, may I say if more kids would dig this kind of digging there'd be fewer teenagers in trouble. * * * Dear Ann: My brother who is 24, is going with a woman who admits to 39. She is the small dainty type who looks younger than her years, but you can't kid the old calendar, Ann, and we keep telling him lhat she'll fall apart on him one day when he least expects it.
