Editor'* Nate: Mother of two children wishes to overcome hostility towards lirztborn. which hu nijtcd from hit birth. DEAR MARY HA WORTH: I have a little son, four years old, and I find that I have no time or love for him. I know this is wrong, and I am willing to try anything to change myself^ but what shall I do? We have very little money, but I believe this is an urgent problem. My husband Dale and I were married only a few months when I became pregnant; and I didn't want the baby. To make matters worse, Dale started accusing me. falsely, of all manner of immorality. When little Bruce was born I didn't even care to see him; and when he was baptized my parents staged a big rampage, making me nervous—for which I blamed the baby. La.ter I blamed the child for his father's not paying any attention to me, for he always butts in when we try to talk. He wants his father all to himself, and takes his father's side in everything, which is understandable, no doubt, when you consider my "rejecting" attitude. Now that we have two children, how can I keep from playing favorites? I am completely devoted to the second child, and can't understand this difference in myself. Was I too young for responsibility when Bruce was born? I might add. my family never showed their love emotionally—only in doing for each other. You couldn't ask for a sweeter child than Bruce; he is always saying how nice I look, or some- think of the sort. Please try to help me, for I don't want to be a harmful mother. G. J.

FIRST NATIONAL BANK Cumberland. Maryland M«mb«r f. D. I. C. Problem Refers To Rage At Men DEAR G. J.: Very simply stated, the genesis of the problem is this: When Bruce was born you were emotionally ill—as a result of fighting with your husband and straining against the adult responsibilities that marriage had incurred. Dale was in a similar rebellious mood at the time and accused you of misbehavior that unconsciously figured in his fantasies. In short, he dreamt of escape into infidelity, and projected his guilt-feelings at you— in the sense of assuming that you were as fickle and unreliable as he felt he might be. In his unconscious protest against permanent commitments, it's possible he fitfully imagined and tentatively claimed that he wasn't the father of the expected child—that you'd had a secret lover, and so on. In any case, you were neck-deeo in a situational neurosis by the Mme the boy was born—thus in no condition to give him a wholesome reception. As to why you rejected him so flatly, I suppose the causation was very complex, and obscurely related to your standing quarrel with Dale. For example, it may be that the babe's masculine gender, plus Dale's reluctant pride in him for that reason, plus your rankling memory of insults swallowed perforce about the! child's paternity (from the father),! all evoked blind repugnance in your thoughts of the boy. For the nonce, he may have symbolized "hateful male sex" to you, plus the price women pay (in loss of carefree youth) tor trusting a man to love and protect them Seems Two-Sided Difficulty Noiv To the extent that "Dale seemed contritely solicitous of the baby and you, and anxiously responsible in his new-father role, you revelled in washing your hands of the situation, no doubt. Very likely you were having revenge for your grievance during pregnancy—when you felt too helpless, too dependent, too asser resentment. The hapless child enveloped in such parental tensions would speedily become a nursery problem of course; and as you continued to contribute to his involuntary distress, he would continue to manufacture difficulties in family relationship. At this writing it's no longer a question of your being the problem —as you say in your letter, here condensed. Both you and the bo> need sensitive sympathetic guidance such as a good psychologist must provide—until a nucleus of healthy interchange has been developed.

Th* big difference in whiskey values is the difference in taste. That's why it will pay you to make an easy 60-second taste test between Calvert Reserve and your present brand.
