Page 6 Garden City Telegram Saturday, December 3, 1977 ANN LANDERS It's Not An Easy Way To Go DEAR ANN: In the past four years our only daughter, age 21, has been strung out on drugs. She has run away twice. (The last time to Mexico. We flew down and brought her home when she became seriously ill.) She has dropped out of school three times, had an abortion and has been sexually promscicous with three other men. This week she decided to live openly with a man she met recently. The fellow has never dated a girl before and just spent $3,000 of his savings to pay off her car debt and other overdue bills. (She has a full-time job.) We did not bring her up to behave this way. She had a happy childhood, Christian ST. THOMAS EPISCOPAL CHURCH YUM-YUM SHOPPE AND CHRISTMAS AUCTION-BAZAAR Saturday, December 10 8:00 a.m. Yum-Yum Shoppe 5:00-6:30 pjn.

We stopped giving her money so now she is angry and refuses to speak to us. What happened to the Biblical adage, "Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it"? We need some counsel. — BATTERED PARENTS DEAR PARENTS: Many children "depart" from the way they were "trained up," and there is no pat explanation. Peer pressure and an overwhelming need to rebel against authority are just two factors that may account for your daughter's behavior. My advice to parents who are faced with such problems is this: Investigate the availability of counseling and suggest it. (There are many drug abuse clinics and mental health centers that do a fine job.) If she refuses, drop the matter. Stop giving money or gifts. Let her know the door is open but make no effort to repair the rupture in the relationship. If your daughter is angry, let her stay angry. In other words, let her alone to grow up and shape up, if and when she chooses. It won't be easy, but it's the only way to go. * * "fr DEAR ANN: How does one collect from house guests who< make long-distance telephone calls and take their own sweet time about paying up? I just managed to collect a sizable sum from a woman who stayed with me over the Labor Day weekend. She'll be back for Thanksgiving. I have a telephone credit card and wouldn't think of charging a long-distance call to a host or hostess. Please reply in print for a whole group of us who are your faithful readers in — SAN BERNARDINO DEAR FAITHFULS: Most people who complain to me about this problem never get paid. Your concern is that your friends don't pay up soon enough. Short of telling the offenders flat out that they are not at liberty to make long- distance calls on your phone, y our only option is to install a pay phone booth, a la J. Paul Getty. Make a joke of it, but they'll get the message. (_Jur VI I l ame CONSUELA MARIE is the name given their daughter by Mr. and Mrs. Jessie Juarez, 901 N. 4th. Consuela was born Nov. 22.

Indoor Fun Center KoniKife-blinder Club 'See, I Have This Tennis Racket' A book called "How to Hide Almost Anything," by David Krotz, isn't as crazy as you think. No one wants to live in Rip- off City... especially these days. And face it, we're living in a lime where you pay 50 cents to park at a park and swap for the opportunity of buying back your kids bicycle that was stolen the nighl before and feel that you got a bargain because you only had to pay half of what you originally paid for it. I wish I understood what I just wrote. Mr. Krotz lists 157 pages of likely spots to hide things that includes baseboards, plumbing, secret panels, woodpiles, beams, ceilings and trapdoors. It's a book most parents can't afford to be without. Heaven knows I'm not a paranoid possessive person, but I have the only tennis racket in the house with strings. Because it is unique in that it offers a ball some resilance upon contact, it is in great demand. I have hidden it in the broom closet, behind the hot water heater, under my underwear and on the bookshelf behind the complete works of Shakespeare. I had it in the trunk of my car, in a box in the attic marked, "TUNA RECIPES," in a suitcase with a broken handle, and jammed between the table pads for the dining room table. I once put it under the dishtowel and as distasteful as it was, one of the kids actually lifted it, revealing my last child-proof hiding place. My husband says I have no imagination. "If you really want to hide something, you can't think like the hider, you have to think like the seeker. If I wanted a tennis racket, the first place I'd look is on a hanger in your closet with your bathrobe over it." "Who told you?" I shouted. 'No one had to tell me, it was a simple deduction. Do you see me running around going crazy looking for my camera? My binoculars? My transistor? My scissors? Roll of tape?" "Where do you hide them?" I insisted. "I put them in the boys' bedroom in plain view. They haven't found anything in that room for 15 years." Eat your heart out, Mr. Krotz. You have just met your match.
