6 The OTTAWA HERALD Monday, May 4, 1953 Grandmother Guards Stores NEWTON, Kas. OPl - Mr s. Irene Cullinan doesn't scare easily. And in her business that's good. The 64-year-old grandmother has been a merchant policeman for 25 years. Clad in slacks with a visored cap over her gray hair, she keeps watch at night over 40 Newton business places, carrying a ring of keys, a flashlight and .32 Colt pistol. She's never had to use the gun and hopes she never has to but, she says, "when I find one of my places open, I don't walk in empty-handed. "If they think I'm afraid to use the weapon, they have another think coming. My father taught me how to use a gun when I was just a little girl. And I don't scare." Mrs. Cullinan checks doors to see if they are locked, turns off store lights, and looks for anything unusual. Her day begins at 6 p. m. She starts out walking but from midnight to 5 a.m., she patrols in her car. She figures she walks about 500 miles a month and drives another 1,000. Mrs. Cullinan became a 'merchant policeman in 1933 with her husband, John, who was Newton's night chief of police in the late 1920s. She took over his downtown beat during a five-year illness that preceded his death in 1955. How long does she intend to pound the beat? "As long as I am able, 1 ' she says. Merchant Policeman Cullin<tn Your Problems, By -Ann Landers- Dear Ann Landers: Whenever a page is missing from our newspaper I know my wife didn't want me to see something. Usually, it's your column. However, when you give the wives a boost (or the husbands a knock) she folds the paper with your column on the outside -and puts it in my big chair. Today a page was missing. I i fooled her and went t out a n d bought a n o t her paper. Sure enough it h ad the letter from the wife who was always "too tired" or "h a d too much work to do." I could LANDERS have kissed you, Ann, when you told her "There's more to marriage than waxing the linoleum." I "innocently" asked my wife If she'd seen your column that day. Her reply was "Yes, and Ann Landers is crazy. Sex is strictly for men. A woman of good up-bringing isn't interested in such things." I know I'll never change my cold tomato so there's no use trying. But thanks for doing a great job. Maybe you can educate the younger ones. For them there may still Ibe hope—MOTOR CITY MALE. Dear Male: I received many letters from men expressing the same sentiments, but I got a rash of complaints from women who were boiling mad. Most women who wrote made a valid point. They asked what they were supposed to do with the kids when hubby arrives at 4:45 p.m. "fit as a fiddle and ready for ove." Obviously it makes sense for a husband to pitch in with the work, have an early supper and help get the kiddies off to bed. Perhaps I leaned too far In trying to make the point that some women use housework, kids, the tired routine or a headache as "excuses." It will be worth all the blasts from outraged Women if I can get across the Big Idea that married love is a divine plan for mutual fulfillment, and not a scheme designed for lecherous males. P.S. Strange coincidence of the week: The woman who wrote "I hate men and their damnable demands — " lives in Kissammee, Florida. Dear Ann: It's 4:15 a.m. and I'm baby-sitting. I'm so tired I'm almost sick. Tomorrow I have to go to school. I am 14. Mom doesn't like me to stay out late on school nights but I need money for so many things she lets me. If the people get in by 5 a.m. I'll make $2.25. They pay 25c an hour. I can sure use the money but it doesn't seem like much when you consider the hours I put in. Some sitters fall asleep on the job and get rested up but I feel responsible for the kids so I stay awake. Something's wrong here and I don't know what. Can you help me?-BEAT Dear Beat: The hours are too long and the pay is too short. Double your, rates. They're taking advantage of you.

He has invited me and my 10-year-old son by a former marriage on a two-week trip. Would it be proper to go if I paid the expenses for the boy and myself?
