Entertain with a winter brunch DEAR ANN: Three years ago I met a girl at work. She was separated from her husband. We fell in love. When she became pregnant I wanted to marry her but she decided to go back to her husband. She had twins and I was proud as can be. The twins are the smartest and cutest little boys I've ever seen. I hope you won't think I am conceited when I tell you they look exactly like me. I want to marry this girl and raise the boys more than anything in the world. The trouble is the girl's husband — ho likes the kids very much, too. Last night I begged her to reconsider. She told me to get lost and stop pestering her. What are my rights? These boys are mine. I am willing to fight for them in court if I have to. Aren't there laws for people like me? — ROBBED DEAR ROBBED: Yes, there are laws — but they read like this, Bub: Children bom to a woman who is married belong, legally, to her husband. Since you seem to be so freaked out over kids, why don't you find a nice single girl and marry her and leave this woman alone? Take her advice. Get lost. There are many good reasons why brunch has become such a popular way to entertain. It's relaxed and informal, comfortable for guests and hostess alike. Also, it's wonderfully flexible where food is concerned — just about anything goes from the simple to the elegant. Usually, brunch consists of one or two courses but when these are out-of-tlie-ordinary, the meal becomes an exciting repast. And in this different category are these two brunch r e c i p e s . Those perennial favorites, ham and scrambled eggs are given new /cst with the addition of prepared yellow mustard. Served on toasted English muffins, the Ham 'N Egg Open Sandwiches are an exciting blend of textures and flavors. Brunch Chicken Casserole is an unexpected and complementary combination of chicken and orange sections. A topping of mashed potatoes, easily made with instant mashed potato granules, crowns the dish which can be completely prepared the night before and heated when guests arrive. For a large gathering, serve both dishes buffet style and round out the meal with fniit juice, a basket of assorted muffins, rolls and toast and coffee.

She was born near Dublin of Welsh and Irish parent.-;, was educated at a convent school, and at age 17 went to London to study dress Avenues of fashion Practical weekend fashions By 0. E. SCHOEKKLEU Fashion Advisor to Esquire Maga/lnc What you'll wear on midwinter weekends is dictated by what's on your agenda, not by me nor hy fashion, either, although it, isn't hard to combine practicality with good looks these days! One of the most popular ways lo spend a weekend almost anywhere in the country is to go skiing; many of the poslier lodges also boast a skating rink, cither lo work off any extra energy you haven't expended on I IK: slopes, or as a good way to work out muscle soreness, something thai looks great for skating this year is knickers — yes, knickers! in Donegals or other tweeds, corduroy or rugged flannel. Wear them with Umg socks, a wool shirt and-or sweater, For skiing or relaxing After a long hard week of work, a weekend of skiing or just relaxing before a blazing fire, would be the ideal thing. For your mid-winter weekend vear (left) u jersey jumpsuit with a high-standing collar; a shearling - lined tapestry jacket for non-skiing ski weekends, and knickers and jacket of gray Donegal tweed and suede, designed by Stuart Nelson. and a close-fitting knitted toque with matching li-lo-H) scarf. A new idea in ski weekends is the one that doesn't' include skiing, for those of you who aren't so athletically inclined. You jusl go to the lodge and enjoy all it has; lo offer in the way of food, drink and friendship, without straining a single muscle! Your wardrobe will be based on the apres-ski formula, with or without ski pants; a substitute is a good- looking pair of slacks in wool, corduroy, velvet or whatever, depending on how dressy the lodge is. A shearling vest or jacket worn over a sweater or shirt is a hot item tins season, or you may prefer a bold plaid (weed jacket. Comfortable slipper-type boots are a must. And lor those weekends when you just want lo relax in I rout of a bla/iug fire with a good book, your best girl, a goodly stock of edibles potables, there's almost nothing belter than a /ip-front jumpsuit or a pullover top with matching pants in a double knit, corduroy, velvet or velcur! They're colorful, comfortable, and a whole lot better looking than all but the in o s t elegant dressing gown! ll designing as an apprentice at dressmaking establishment which then made clothes for many members of the royal family. In 1940 she returned to Dublin where she joined a local dressmaking firm and helped turn it into the first custom dressmaking house in Ireland. At the age of 22 she became a director of the firm. But 10 years went by before her name appeared on the; fashions she designed. She presented her collections only to an Irish and English clientele, until the fall of 1952 when she was "discovered" and was invited to show her designs in America. Sybil Connolly does not sell her originals to be copied by American manufacturers. She produces both custom order and ready to wear customos in her own Dublin workrooms, and distributes them to stores t h r o u g li o ut America. By copying her own designs and in a k i u g them by hand in Ireland she creates employment in Ireland for many tailors and seamstresses. A number of traditional Irish haiidicralfs have been revived as a result of America's great acceptance of Sybil Connolly fashions. In making hand crocheted Irish lace alone, she employs 51 people, all of whom work in their own cottages on lace patterns which have been handed down for generations and which now are being worn by Connolly clients throughout the world.

We know who these people are and have spoken to them several times in a courteous and gentle manner but it's the same as talking to the wall. When we are on the phone they cut in with, "Quick, get off. I have to call the rescue squad. The baby just swallowed a safety pin." We get off and listen, and who do you think they called? The liquor store to order a six pack of beer and a fifth of gin. A neighbor told us if we report these people to the telephone company we might have to go to court to prove the charges and risk getting sued for defamation . of character. We don't want to get into trouble. Please tell us what to do. — BIZZZY LINE DEAR LINE: Your neighbor gave you wrong information. The telephone company doesn't insist that you do anything but pay your bill. ' Report your problem to the complaint department and they will do their best to help you. They will contact the ''hogs'' and request cooperation. Usually they get it. If they do not succeed, you might get a new phone number and a new party. Few firms can match the cooperation and service. (New York City is an exception.) DEAR ANN: I'm 18. My girl is 24. We've been officially engaged for six years. She is my first serious sweetheart and I am hers. About uq a year ago started to leave Mirror of your By JOHN CONWELL mi iiid Does a crabby husband make Answer: Not necessarily. Perhaps he was a crab before she married him, and she saw thai his crabby nature was a camouflage -he used to hide a gentleness he was not ready to reveal. If her husband b e c a m e a crab after marriage, then the wife might become one, too; for his change in personality may be duo lo hidden resentment toward being married that s h e may unconsciously believe is her fault. Can the source of most phobias be traced? Answer: Certainly; a therapist can trace a patient's phobia to some incident or series of events that in all likelihood happened in childhood. But, although finding the source of phobia is relatively simple, the cure engagement ring at home. When I asked why she said she was allergic to the metal. So I had the stone reset in platinum instead of gold. Three months ago she started not to wear her ring again. This time she said it bothered her when she typed. Last week she asked if I'd mind if she had a date with the personnel manager. I said, "Of course I'd mind." She has gone into one of her three-day sulks and I am getting fed up on her she her moodiness. What is your advice? _ PUSHING 30 DEAR PUSH: Set the prisoner free. She's beginning to suspect the world is not bound on the north, south, east and west by you. Take back the ring and tell her to date anybody she wants to. And you should do the same. You two may wind up together yet. but you both need to see some new faces. Give in or lose him . . . when a guy gives you this line, look out!

It all depends on how intricate a pattern of fears and defenses has been woven by the phobia sufferer. Is learning to read easy for smart kids? Answer: No; many a bright child has been consigned to the lower levels of the IQ scale simply because of his difficulty in learning to read. Fortunately, we now look into the possibility of a physical or emotional difficulty that might be preventing a youngster from learning to read as fast as his contemporaries. We don't want to lose a great "brain," for instance, because of poor eyesight.
