Your Problems — by Ann Landers — DEAR ANN LANDERS: Last October my mother-in-law died of cancer. She was sick for five years and there were heavy nictlical expenses. When she died my father-in-law announced that he didn't have enough money to pay for the funeral. The four children felt it was their responsibility to help so we all took out loans and have been paying on those loans ever since. Thre c months after his wife w a s buried my father-in-law bought a new car (there was nothing wrong with the car he had). Last month he took a pleasure trip. Every one of the four children is-married and has his own family obligations. We think it is wrong that we should be stuck with the funeral bill, which, rightfully, the husband of the deceased should be paying. No one has the courage to say a word to him and I am burned up. I wish you would print this letter in the paper and comment, — EDITH Derr Edith: It's odd that one mother can raise four children, but that four children can't bury one mother. Five years of cancer can be mighty expensive. It may well be that since your father-in-law is free of those terrible medical bills hu has a little extra money around for the first time in ages. In my book you're way oiul of line. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Maybe you will figure this letter is too foolish to print but it is important to us kids, so please give il a second look. There is one girl in our crowd (we are all 14 and 15) who is really a good kid. But she has a habit of laughing very loud at just about anything that is said. Some of the things she laughs at aren't the least bit funny. When she talks, she laughs at the end of almost every sentence. Why does she do this? I mentioned it to my mother and she says one of her friends does the same thing. She can't figure it out either. Can you? — THE QUESTIONER Page 6 Garden City Telegram Saturday, September 7, 1963 Dear Questioner: Sometimes people laugh because they are seJf-consciou s laughter releases tension. In the case of your friend, and probably your mother's friend, too, the laughter may not have anything to do with humor. Once you understand this it makes "senseless" laughter easier to tolerate. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a girl 18 who graduated from high school last spring. My father will send me to the local teacher's college if I want to go. I can't make up my mind. Please help. I started to go with this fellow five months ago. He is 20, and has three small children. H i s wife died last year. He's a very nice person and we get along well together, but I don't know if I am able to be a mother to his three children. They are all spoiled because their grandparents have catered to their every whim since their mother died. To be honest, I think I'd have my hands full. My parents have not tried to influence ine one way or the other. I think I am writing to you because I want you to tell me, "DON'T MARRY HIM." What does this sound like to you? — DON'T KNOW MY OWN MIND Dear Don't Know: "DON'T MARRY HIM." This is indeed what you want to hoar, so I am telling you. Your lack of enthusiasm is pretty obvious and the questions you raise are valid ones. If you wish to continue to see this man, along with others, I sec no reason why you should not. But marriage at this time — no. Ann Lande r s will b c glad to help yau with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Garden City Telegram enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
