Your Problems by Ann Landers — DEAR ANN: May I have the la.st word in remind to tliu unfortunate gir] who complained because she had a shape like an ironing hoard? You told her to go to Hie lingerie store and buy what she niri'dcd. I thought your advice was top-notch but one reader wrote, to say store-bought curves are dishonest and that such fak- cry is symbolic of the decay of American integrity. May I tell you what happened when J was a nint. grade slu- di.-nl, back in 1908? In those days the teachers wore while shirtwaists and form-fitting, ankle- length skirts. Our history teacher, Miss Smith, was tall and slender with no hips at all, poor thing. Her long, straight skirts made her look seven feel tall. One day slus appeared in class with a beautiful figure. I was dyiii'X of curiosity — and being ten years old I hadn't yet learned it was impolite to ask personal questions. So I asked. This is what she said, "1 am de myself some hip-pads which I tie around my waist. What God has forgotten I made up with cotton." So, you see, there's nothing new about it. — SEA WILLOW Dear Willow?

Chalmers—Mgr. BATTERIES — SERVICE AUDIOMETER SALES •his eldest daughter. His wife had always managed the money so his eldest daughter took over where her mother had k-ft off. Leonard handed over his pay check to her and she paid the bills and gave im an allowance. We've been married four months and Leonard's daughter is still paying his bills and giving him aii\allowance. I am very uncomfortable about this but don't know what to do. We are getting along fine and I don't want to rock the boat. Still this is like a bone in my throat. Should I say nothing and hope in time he will offer to let me handle the family finances — — or what? — NUMBER TWO Dear Two: Don't stand on one foot while you're waiting, Lady. It may be a very long w : ait — like maybo forever. When Leonard had no wife, it was all right for his daughter to pinch hit, but now that he has a wife, the pinch hitter should be benched. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS Please print this for all girls who are, going steady and are afraid to break up. I went steady with Bart for a year. He was selfish and inconsiderate and I was miserable most of the time but I thought that was the way love was supposed to be. One clay I realized we were fighting all the time so I told him we'd better call it quits. He agreed but asked if we could date once in a while. Three weeks went by and he didn't call. I was heartbroken. I regretted the break-up and came close to calling him and admitting it. But somehow I controlled myself. Then I met Earle. After one date I knew what it was like to be treated like a lady. Earlc was evcrydhi/ig that Bart was not. Last night we ran into Bart at a party and for the first time I saw how crude, arrogant and phony he is. Now I could kick myself for being so dumb and wasting a whole year on him. I'lease pass the word. — HAPPIER NOW * * * Dear Happier:' Horray for you.
