Your Problems, By -Ann Landers- Dear Ann: Our daughter Mary is planning to marry outside her religion when her boy friend Roy graduates from college in June. He's 21, and she is 20. We are heartbroken but can do nothing to stop them. The boy agreed to be married in our church. 'Roy's parents are terribly upset over this and refuse to even meet our daughter. T h ey gave their t w o older sons who married a n i c e s u m of money for a honeymoon and furniture, (they married LANDERS inside their religion.)} Roy and Mary aren't going to get anything. Naturally, they feel very put out and my husband and I agree it's not fair. These two young people have nothing to start on and we can't help them. Now they are considering being married by Roy's clergyman so they can get some help from his folks. Of course we are against this. Any advice you can give us will be appre ciated.-UNHAPPY FOLKS Dear Folks: Your letter is a good example of the problems created by mixed marriages. If your daughter won't listen to you, and Roy won't listen to his parents they certainly aren't going to pay any attention to me. It's interesting that you and your husband should expect Roy's parents to cough up with financial help when they're violently op- Sod alettes Mrs. Ernest Fisher of Ander son, Ind., is visiting her par ents, Mr. and Mrs. L. 0. Oyler who are ill. Both are 90. Mrs Fisher is also visiting her sisters Mrs. Jack Likes and Mrs. Ray mond Hosier. Elm Grove Club members quilt ed yesterday at the meeting with Mrs. Fred Thomas. A poutluck luncheon was served at noon. Mrs Ernest Lowrance was in charge of business and devotions. Miss Hattie Marshall received the mystery box. Mrs. Bertha Lancaster and Johnnie Lancaster were visitors, and nine members attended. PRINtED PATTERN posed to the marriage. Sorry, but don't agree. Parents don't owe their children honeymoon and furniture money. (Did you get it?) Such extras are strictly trimmings if >arents can afford it and wish to be generous. If Roy and Mary want to buck the world then let hem be independent and go it alone. Some mixed marriages work out well but it takes maturity and a ot of giving on both sides. I don't hink these two have it. Dear Ann Landers: What can I do with a well-meaning neighbor who gives me faded, worn out clothing for my small grandchildren? i know she means well, but he things she sends are in such terrible condition they are fit for he rage bag. I can't imagine where she gets such junk. My son and his wife are having a bit of a financial struggle, but hey aren't so destitute that they must dress their children in tat- :ered clothes. I wouldn't dream of :aking them to my daughter-in- aw's house. I've been throwing everything in the rubbish barrel. I wish she'd stop bringing the boxes over here. Should I tell her right out? If so, how?—ANOTHER ANN Dear Ann: You are not being fair to this neighbor when you accept the boxes, then turn around and throw them in the ash-can. Tell her you appreciate the thought, but it won't be neces- ary for her to bring over clothing for your grandchildren in the future, as things are "better." (Obviously they actually are "better" than she thinks.) Suggest she send the clothes to a welfare agency. Dear Ann: Our six year old daughter bites her fignernails so far down sometimes they bleed. We've tried to tell her that her hands will be ugly when she grows up, but she doesn't seem to care. I've offered to take her to the beauty shop for a manicure if she'll let her nails grow. This hasn't helped either. A friend of mine told me about some liquid which is applied daily and tastes bitter. It discourages children from putting their fingers in their mouths. She says it works. My husband says I shouldn't pay attention to "old wives tales."

Mrs. Nora Foley, formerly of Ottawa, has returned and is at the home of her father, G. V. Louk. She has been in Covina, Calif. Mrs. Fern Fabert has attended a Gossard Foundation Forum in Omaha, Neb., and is now a graduate corsetiere. "The oddest thing about Alaska is the continual sun- nine," Dr. Sylva Lofgreen told Soroptimlsts and their guests last ivening. "You just never know vhen to retire or to get up." 'arllcularly is this true in an Jskimo village the Lofgreens isited about 40 miles beyond the \rctic Circle. They report there eemed no regular bedtime for Eskimo children. They played in he streets at all hours of the day and night and, no doubt, when ircd, just stretched out and slept intil refreshed. At the Eskimo village there is one time in the year when the sun does not set for more than 30 days, it just seems to bounce along on the horizon. At another ime there is complete darkness 'or a similar time. Americans visiting Alaska find t necessary to close heavy drapes at the windows and, even do, seldom sleep as many hours as at home, according to Mrs. Lofgreen. The occasion for her talk last evening was a Soroptimist benefit party held at Lamb's. The color slides for her travelogue were ol pictures taken or bought on a trip to Alaska in 1355. The Lofgreens traveled by plane from Seattle, Wash., to Fairbanks, on a 6-hour, non-stop flight. To tamaliarize viewers with the locale, Mrs. Lofgreen showed views of an Alaskan map, with a pencil pointing each time to the locality in question. In the Eskimo village the Lof greens found living conditions primitive. They attended a na live Eskimo dance, of which they took pictures. They also provided a recording of the chant. Itinerary of the Ottawans included all the principal cities, of which Anchorage was largest and most modern. Mrs. Lofgreen reported that Juno, the capital, was the one she liked best. Scenic views included many waterways in -the country, streams swollen by melting snow, floating i c c bergs, grassy slopes with color ful wild flowers, and views of snow covered mountains includ ing Mt. McKinlcy, highest moun tain on the North American conti nent. Mrs. Esther Garrison, president, welcomed the guests, On t h e committee wero Mrs. Wallace Wells, Mrs. Orpha Jones and Mrs. iVIlllag D.

Try to learn what the problem is, and cure it. The symptom will then disappear. I have heard of the bitter tasting liquid, and it does help in some cases. The nail-biting may stop, but the disturbed person sometimes manifests other (maybe worse) symptoms of insecurity. See your doctor and get his advice.
