DOROTHY DIX DEAR MISS DIX: I nm n mother of five children, tour of Whom nru of working ngc, but they have no intention whatever of get- ling jobs. Their only occupation is to piny around, go to the movies and have dates, and comn home to eat and sleep and change their clothes. My husband works every day very hard, and so do I, anil it is very difficult to live'and support the family on his wapos. Is there any way that I can get the children to go to work so as not to be an expense to us? AGGRAVATED MOTHER. ANSWER: Sure there is a way to make yoilr children go to work and be decent, self-supporting boys mid girls instead of lazy loafers, but you don't have the backbone to apply the remedy lo the situation. All, you have to do is iust to read the Riot Act to your children and tell them that that they have got to Kcl out and go lo worn, and that you are not going to support them another day; that there will be no more free :!ecds, no more buying clothes and charging them to Papa, no more borrowing money, that'they never pay back, from Mother; that they are on their own from now on. Won't Waste Energy They will go to work when they get good and hungry. But as long as they have a good bed to sleep in and three square meals a clay and they can sponge on Mom .and Dad for money i'or iheir pleasur.- es, they will not waste their energies looking for .jobs. The' parents who have no-account children are responsible for their being lazy and trifling. They didn't teach them habits of industry and thrift and so they brought up bums instead of worth wile men and women. for the six years while my husband was away, so why couldn't she Jo the same? And how do I know thai the child is hisV Please toll mo what lo do' Shall I tell my husband about this woman's demands? Or shall I just ignore her? Please ndvise me before I RO to pieces. ANOTHER BROKENHEARTED WIFE. ANSWER: My advice to you is just to ignore the woman. Certainly a hardworking wife is under no obligation to support her husband's mistress, or any ill-gotten child she may lay at his door. .Evidently the woman feels that she has'no strong claim upon him, or else she would appeal to your husband instead of you for money. The war, with enforced separation of husband and wives, has brought sorrow worse than death, because it is a living sorrow, to many wives. Nothing can change what has happened, but you can use all your will power in trying to forget the past and build up a happy future. Pago Three Legal Notice DEAR MISS DrtC: My husband was overseas for six years. We have been married 15 years and have two lovely children. Now I am i eceiving letters from a woman who claims she has lived eight years with my husband and has a child, and she ?s demanding that I send her money. My thought is that I look good care of myself DEAR DOROTHY DIX: I have no trouble in attracting men, but 1 find it extremely difficult to hold their interest, due to my inability to carry on a bright and amusing conversation. I am 22 years old, a high school graduate, and have an excellent position as a private secretary. M.E. ANSWER: If you cannot be a brilliant conversationalist, why nol be an intelligent listener? Believe me, daughter, there is far more profit to a girl ni lending her ears than there is in using her tongue. Also, it is a rarer accomplish ment to be able to listen with an absorbed air than it is to wisecrack. A famous novelist recently said that all that a woman-needed -to make her popular wilh men was just to have a vocabulary of two words. As long as she could murmur 'How wonderful!'.every time a man paused for breath, he could never get enough of hciisociety. (Released by The Bell Snydicatc, Inc.) --.

LAVESICK XIX Not many people came to express their sympathy to thc Fitzgeralds there at Innisl'ail. Mrs. Fitzgerald had nol paid any attention .to those people in life, thus at her death, hardly knowing her, they hesitated to come to the house. But the church was crowded. I knelt beside Cousin Ellen and hid my 1'acc in my'hands during Mass. Innisfail would never be thc same without its mistress. In her own brusque way she had been kind to me. She had not wanted me to work, because she had thought me loo young, And she had wanted Ellen to give me the best lo eat and have me get out in the sunshine every day. : And she had been a great lady in her day. I remembered Ellen saying, "Ah, she"was'like a queen; indeed, she was a queen. And I thought how, watching the cortege that took Honora Murray Fitzgerald down the drive between the tall maples, it had seemed to me that the trees themselves had been moic erect than ever, as if to pay her homage.

Mark was quieter than before, and a trifle grayer, and the expression of his mouth became even more stern. He kept large part of the time in the weeks immediately following her death, but he continued his work, still patiently trying to instill a little knowledge into the heads of himself shut up in his study a letes. And he still cared for his garden, though it was now a glorious mass of bloom, needing little care. Colin wandered in and out restlessly and seemed not to know what to do with himself. You might come upon him in the library, where he was turning over leaves of books but never settling himself lo read, or see him walking rapidly up and down the terrace, smok- i ing one cigaret after another. And then suddenly he would get into his car and drive off, only to be back again almost at once to start pacing again. Sometimes he would stand staring down at the little river and his black eyes then had a bleak expression that 1 had never seen there before. Dinners were ghastly. Miss Charlotte, keeping up much bettfcr than either Ellen or I had tried her best to make conversation, but it was not much good. "If only they'd light, ah, if only they'd fight." Ellen said to me one night after she had carried in the roast in the midst of a dead silence. And then she burst into tears. For Colin and Mark were so heartbi-eakingly polite and considerate of one another. When one of them entured a quiet opinion on something, the other listened respectively and even appeared to agree. I had never thought I should The manufacturer is at the mercy of wages in determining prices, because they make up from two- thirds to four-fifths of the ultimate price paid by the consumer, depending on the product.—Robert R.

Father Gene came more often than he. had before, and managed to inveigle Mark into playing chess finally, but, of course,'.there was no more music. The huge grand piano was closed, its votce hushed. Innisfail, house of Fitzgerald, was in mourning. Innisfail without its'" mistress, even though she had been helpless and bedridden for many weeks was nothing but an echoing silent habitation. A haunting menory to the dynamic personality that once had ruled it. As Cousin Ellen had wept when the Fitzgeralds ceased lo argue, so I was almost moved to tears myself, that first night they resumed. It was, perhaps, three weeks after Mrs. Fitzgerald had died. I had started to serve dinner and was just removing the place plates, when some chance word of Colin's concerning politics drew a swift and flat contradiction from Mark. Without an instant's hesitation, Colin flashed back at him, with voluble rhetorical evidence to prove his statement, and Mark was just as instantaneous to refute it. Before very long, they were quoting the Constitution of the United States and various well-informed historians, and their voices rose and stayed risen. In the kitchen, Ellen's face was wreathed in smiles. She looked at the cold food left on the plates and she gave me a little squeeze. "Ah, they're the strong-minded lads,' she said, 'those Fitzgeralds.' A.fter that, the atmosphere was a little more normal. The first sharp edge of their grief had dulled slightly and though the spirit x Honora Fitzgerald still hovered about the house she was still mourned, they were no longer so clevas- tatingly polite to each other. Beatrice Harrington, as was to be expected, was a great help to us during this sad time. She came often to Innisfail and each time she came she made us all thankful for her practical surnpathy. We were brighteneing under her influence and the house was begin ning to brighitn, as well. How could we know t(iat there was still a shadow of disaster hanging over Innisfail, -a shadow that was to make the first one seem small, and that was to settle on it to stay, until the house itself was gone?
