FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER ZB. 1910, PAGE 14 By Sally SK.W DEAR SALLY: My husband has been letting our two little boys ages 3 and 5, sip some of his beer. And some of these "sips" are very large ones. This has been going on for sometime and the boys are becoming increasingly fond of beer. Whenever I remonstrate, my husband says beer is good for them. I violently disagree with this. Are you with me? CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: I am indeed! Beer is not for three and five-year-olds. The beer your husband is doling out to your youngsters evidently has more of a head than he has. DEAR SALLY: I'm a young man who is slated to be an usher at my cousin's wedding and now I'm having trouble with my girl friend. I managed to get her included as a guest at the wedding and reception, but she's raising a big storm because she's not included at the wedding rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding and she is threatening to break off with me if I GO to break off with me if I go without her. Now I don't know what to do. Should I try to persuade my cousin to include my girl friend in this dinner party or what? ON THE SPOT. DEAR ON THE SPOT: A girl as unreasonable as yours isn't worth worrying about. . and don't be asking your cousin to Include her either! Wedding rehearsal dinners are almost always just for the bridal party itself and some relatives. Tell your girl friend flatly that it's impossible to take her and if she carries out her threat to break off, you will not have lost anything. DEAR SALLY: I'm a girl of 18, very unhappy because of a complete lack of boyfriends. The boys like me well enough, but apparently not enough to date -and I know it's because of my shape ... too MUCH shape! I'm about thirty pounds overweight. I've tried any number of "crush diets," but Invariably after a few pounds have dropped off I've succumbed to my fondness for calorie-rich foods. Please, will you help me? OVERSTUFFED. DEAR OVERSTUFFED: Neither I nor anyone else can help you... so far as the exercise of YOUR willpower is concerned. This Is strictly up to you. First of all, don't go on any self-prescribed "crush diets."Consult your doctor about a good, safe, figure- shrinking diet. Then, by all means, STICK to itl DEAR SALLY: Recently I wrote to you asking what I could do about the people who live in the apartment just above ours and who constantly make so much noise up there that it causes us to lose much sleep. You told me to check with out landlord. As it so happens, these people ARE our landlords! So, what now? J. A. DEAR J. A.: Haven't you even THOUGHT of moving? NOTE TO BRIDE-ELECT: Even though your finance's parents are, as you put it, "automatically included" in the wedding guest list, it still is proper and considerate to send them a formal invitation. Quite often this Is saved by the bridegroom's par- saved by the bridegroom's parents as a memento of a very important event in the life of their son. Hewlett Asks For Support of Anti-Pollution Bond Act Illinois citizens must help clean up the state's waterways by supporting the Antl-Pollution Bond Act on November 3, Michael J. Hewlett, state Auditor of Public Accounts said today. In a statement Issued here, Hewlett said: "Today our state is seriously threatened by water pollution. Not one stream flows clean from beginning to end and many are dangerously polluted most of the time. "By passing this Bond Act on election day, we can eliminate the major cause of the pollution of our lakes and streams - Inadequately treated municipal sewage. "New federal and state laws require sewage treatment improvements to meet new water quality standards. In Illinois, this will cost nearly $2.2 billion over the next 10 years. "Under the bond issue, the state will pay one-fourth the cost of new or improved municipal sewage treatment facilities. In addition, it will open the way for the federal government to increase its share of the cost of these projects from the present 30 per cent to 50 or 55 per cent. This reduces the burden on local communities from 70 per cent today to as low as 20 per cent. The bonds are to be repaid from the state's general revenues." Howlett pointed out that municipalities throughout the state will have to improve their sewage treatment facilities whether the bond issue passes or not. "But if it falls," Howlett said, "the burden of paying for these Improvements will fall on the local property owner." A portion of the Bond Act will be available for solid waste disposal projects.
