I'ngc 12 Garden C.ity Telegram Wednesday, November 16, 1977 DEAR ANN: I have seen tellers in your column from cals and dogs but never a canary. Lei me be the first. When I had feathers they were a buttercup yellow. My wings were emerald green interspersed with blue and orange. "Why don'l I have feathers?" you ask. Because ihere are four kids under six years of age in this family and Ihey lake turns torturing me. I keep looking for an open window or a chance to get out the front door but so far no luck. I realize if I could escape, life would be very difficult for a house bird like me. But it's so bad in here, I'd lake the chance. Please, Ann, give me some advice. 1 read your column regularly. — WITHOUT A SONG IN LANSING. DEAR WITHOUT: Although I'm sure my column is on I he bottom of many bird cages around the world, you are, indeed, the first canary to write. When your letter appears in print, clip the column with your beak and hand it to the parent of your choice. You don'l have to say anything. They'll know. In the meantime, here's a word from me, in case you get too choked up: If I here's a mom or dad out Ihere whose canary seems to be moulting out of season, please keep a closer watch on your kids. No child under 10 years of age should be per- miited lo handle a pet bird withoul adult supervision. * * * DEAR ANN: My husband is a hard worker, faithful and kind. The problem is gluttony and a fixation on the lelevision. ANN LANDERS Canary Sings A Sad Song It's regular fare for him lo eat three dozen donuts, one bag of potalo chips, several pounds of nuts and a couple of salami sandwiches in the course of 5-8 hours of watching lelevision. His appearance is disgusting. He outweighs me by al least 150 pounds and has a closet full of clothes thai don't fit. He refuses lo give them away on Ihe pretense that he's going on a diet "next week." He admils he has a neucolic eating problem bul he won'l seek help. Our marriage is in big trouble bul he won't lei me gel counseling says, "They don'l know anylhing." I've even examined my own behavior, thinking perhaps I drive him lo eat, bul I'm not a nagger and resent the guilt he has laid on me by inuendo. I'm busy with three preschool children, one who is handicapped and requires special care. I gel absolutely no help from fal sluff. I do EVERYTHING from paperwork lo home canning lo yard work lo carpenlry. I still love him, bul my respect diminishes with every pound he puts on. Is neurotic overeating rounds for divorce? What about his health? He knows he's killing himself slowly with every bite he lakes. Whal does this say about his feelings for me and the children? What approach do I take? Silence and pretending the problem isn't there doesn't work. Help me. — WIFE OF MR. FAT DEAR WIFE: I suggest counseling for you. Some foodaholics (like alcoholics) have lo be shocked inlo shaping up by being left. Maybe this is Ihe way it is in Now Serving You Mon.-Sat. at Plaza Beauty Salon 1107 E.

Want Ads Get Results How would school children of 1977 conduct themselves if transported back in time to a Virginia school of 1770? Claribel Nelson gave the answer to the Finney County Genealogical Society, meeting in the Garden Valley Retirement Village, Nov. 7th. She quoted from one of the few remaining documents of early private schools, entitled "Cannons of a School", in which the school master addressed his pupils in Surrey county, in not too perfect English: "You are by the pleasure of your parents under me to be instructed in READING, WRITING, CYPHERING and what other Branches of Education to me shall seem convenient toward furthering you by steps until you shall arrive at a proper AGE to conduct yourselves in a perilous World, through which everyone of us must pass to the next, and future enjoyment totally depends on our behavior in this life... Permit me to point out to you certain rules for your fur- thierance in so laudable an undertaking: First in the morning when thou dost awake, to God a petition make; Next is early to rise, then washing and combing likewise. Repair strait to school, but bid your parents adue...Al playtime you are to remember that Boys and Girls are not to play nor associate themselves together; neither are you to use any Intemperance, let no vice reign among you, be ashamed to Lye, do not Curse nor sware, nor do anything that may dishonor God or your parents in all thoughts, words or actions... "ORDERED, that no Cursing, Swareing, Quarrelling, Fighting, Lying, Cheating, or Stealing be allowed. All offenders to be punished according to the dignity of the crime, ORDERED, that every schooler that comes into school without being washed, clean, hair combed, collar buttoned, shoes neatly tied or buckled, and nails paired, shall be punished. ORDERED, that the Girls do clean the house and the Boys do keep fire and water when required. ORDERED, that simple and unnecessary carrying of Tails from school be disallowed. ORDERED, that no one allows himself the liberty to wareing his hat in the house, as it is ill manners, in any but Quakers." In the 17th and 18th centuries in Virginia, education was looked upon not as a a right but as a privilege, Mrs. Nelson said. "Education was not considered the responsibility of the state, but a matter for the parents and the church to work out as best they could. The affluent who could afford it employed private tutors. Parents who could not afford tutors often banded together lo support neighborhood schools as in England. Many children were educated vocationally by apprenticeship. In some instances bequeathed endowments by the wealthy provided free schools for the poor." Officers of the society for 1978 were elected as follows: Mrs. Duane Nichols, president; Mrs. Robert E Townsend, vice-president; Mrs. Edward Pennebaker, secretary-treasurer. At the December meeting, three members will each ,tell the story of a most interesting ancestor found on the family tree. Mr. and Mrs. Leo McMahon, Pampa, Tex., announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter Katherine, 808 7th, to Sam McMillan. Sam is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard McMillan, 307 N. 10th. Katherine is employed by Dart's Cafeteria. Her fiance is employed at McMillan Plumbing.
