Your Problems, By -Ann Landers- Dear Ann Landers: Last week my daughter - in - law brought her four-year-old boy to my house. The child isn't afraid of the devil himself and I'm wondering where it will all end. After lunch rny daughter-in-law luggested Billy take a nap. I prepared a bed over his loud protests. When his mother insisted he take a nap he threw an ash-| tray at her and shouted "I hate you. You are a mean Momrny." She ignored the remark and said calmly, "A 1 1 right, Dear, no nap. Here are some magazines to read." Then to LANDERJ 1 I my utter astonishment she turned to me and said "It's emotionally healthy for children to express themselves. How wonderful that Billy feels free to say whatever is on his little mind." Am I a nit-wit or is this the proper way to bring up children today?—MINNIE Dear Minnie: It may be "emotionally healthy" for children to "express themselves," but a parent is entitled to a little emotional health and some self-expression, too. Total permissiveness (letting a child do and say whatever is on "his little mind") has been largely discarded in favor of a firm hand at the seat of the problem. Youngsters should not be criticized and chewed at for minor things. But a child must be taught early just how far he can go. When a youngster throws a tantrum, make sure he catches it. lie week he travels four days, so he's rarely at home, I keep telling him our children are growing up without a father and .he cards are to blame. He says I'm a poor sport. What can I do?-YOOTELLME Dear I'lltellyou: Your husband is a "bridge-a-holic." His be havior is neurotic and immature although he probably considers himself a genius. In reality he's a selfish child who puts his own ego-feeding pleasures first and ignores the needs of his family. Tell him if he can't spend at least two nights a week at home, perhaps he ought to spend the other five nighlB elsewhere too. j Dear Ann: I'm 16 and in love with a boy 19. I know it's love because I've dated loads of fellows since I was 13 and I never felt like this before in my whole life. We plan to be married in about a year when Don has enough money saved to buy a car. The trouble is he treats me swell when we're alone, but when anyone else is around he acts terrible and insults me. When he behaves like this I think of him as a dumb jerk. Maybe the fault is mine because I don't understand him. What's wrong?— ROZ Let's make it two dumb jerks. Of course you've never felt this way before. You've never been 16 before. And the fact tlr.' you're building marriage aroui.u a car is a pretty good indication of how immature you both are. He insults you to show the grandstand you haven't got him Dear Ann: My husband is so crazy over bridge that } sometimes wish he was interested in another woman instead. At least I'd know how to combat that. I play a fair game but he's an expert. We are no good as a team, so I gave up trying. The local games are too tame for him. He has to run all over the state on weekends to play in big league tournaments. During CHEAPER Than Washing at Home . . . Plus SOFT WATER TOO! Try the . . . Maytag Coin-O-Matic Laundry 1600 S.

Nancy Baxter and Rick Baxter gave memory recitals. Other pupils gave piano solos. Hurst Coffman and Patti Smith were named honor students for the month and received awards from the club sponsor, Mrs. M. A. Welty. Members did written theory work. Refreshments were served by Mrs. Neal Bullock and Mrs. Don Shade assisted by Miss 'Ilo Bullock. There were eight guests and 10 members present. Miscellany By L.M.S, A CHAT with Mrs. Paul Archer about her children's musical training proved most interesting. She remarked that Jo, who has won a gold medal for a recording of her playing, started piano at the age of abo x ut three. Older children in the family were taking lessons and she wanted in on the fun. Mrs. Archer started all the five children in piano herself with the exception of t h C eldest daughter.

Mrs. Archer is now giving lessons to the young,est child, Robin, five, and admits that they both "get so excited" over new pieces, especially H they are unusually pretty. One daughter, Kathy, asked for a music lesson for a gift on her fourth birthday. "There's really no great chore to getting ready to go to a con- Farewell Party Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wasson, Roberta and Jackie, entertained the office force of Employment Service Thursday evening at their home.

She says Mrs. makes her ff home with her son, Max, and wife at 930 S. Hickory. Mrs. Ward, at 97, has no intention of assuming a role of idleness. Mer latest project has beer, making small quilts for Crestview wheel chair patients to use as knee robes. She has completed eight. "Mother and I think wheel chair patients both feel and look bet- tt-r with robes tucked about them," says Mrs- Ward's daughter-in- law. She puts backs on the quilts and admits she has a hard time keeping up with the elder Mrs. Ward. The quilts contain small scraps of fabric left over from new drapes made for the nursing home, with harmonizing plain colors supplied by Mrs. Ward. Mrs. Ward has also made several doll quilts for little great- granddaughters and plans to make one for each. She has six grand- children and 18 great-grandchildren. Twelve of them girls. Mrs. Ward has been in a whee! chair herself since suffering a hip fracture last November. While hospitalized in Ransom Memorial Hospital she noticed that an afghan used on her bed was one which she had made for the hospital some 10 years ago. It was made of knitted squares joined together. She also contributed many oth- yarn with "Satisfaction Guaranteed" Furniture Upholstering Truck Seats Recovered Tarps & Combine Canvas repaired.

Mrs. Ward grew up in Michigan, daughter of a minister, She recalls that she ioved skating during the three or four cold months in winter- Her maricd life was spent in owa as the wife of a college pro- essor. Her husband, Henry Ward, was lead of the English department of !oe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She admits it took some "head- >vork" to get along for wages weren't too high. She says, however, that her husband said he vould make (he same choice again, if he were doing it all over again. She says getting top rating as a teacher and knowing that he was doing good meant more than high salaries. Mrs. Ward, herself, taught school a few years. The family included two sons and a daughter. The daughter is deceased and the other son lives in California. After her husband's retirement the couple lived in California. Mr. Ward died 12 years ago. Mrs. Ward says that since that time she feels like a ship without a rudder and has never become accustomed to living without her husband. Mrs. Ward is still much interested in clothes and grooming which no doubt contributes to her attractive appearance. Upon dressing she often asks her daughter- in-law, "Does this dress fit nicely?' what I want to wear for each occasion, the accessories to go with it, and then pack them. When the time comes to dress for the event, I consult my list, and know that all the things I need will be ready." This eliminates the likelihood of forgetting accessories and having to start dressing all over again. Another help which this woman employs is to use interchangeable accessories, Handbag frames with interchangeable bag sections is another fine idea.
