We both felt ashamed and guilty and decided to put an end to it, which we did. The problem is that I became pregnant during the affair, and I have no idea if my husband or his brother is the father of my baby. "Junior" is a toddler now, and I keep seeing a strong resemblance between him and "Uncle Jim." I don't know if this is my guilty conscience playing tricks on me or what. Meanwhile, I keep wondering if others also think Junior resembles his Uncle Jim more than he resembles his father. Jim says he is willing to take a blood test if it will put my mind at ease. He has, however, said that a blood test could complicate matters and would be pointless since we have agreed never to let my husband know about our affair. For my own satisfaction, Ann, I want to know who my child's father is. Will a blood lest determine this? — Is He or Isn't He in California Dear California: According to a spokesperson at the Center for Blood Research, a Harvard affiliate, a blood test may not be definitive. If the brothers happen to share the same genetic makeup, it would not be possible to tell which is the father. If, on the other hand, Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers should be . mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 their genetic makeup is not identical, the test would show a greater likelihood that one is the father. My advice is to forget about genetic testing. It could complicate your life, cause a great many problems and serve no useful purpose. Dear Ann Landers: This is in response to the letter about the noisy neighbors in the next hotel room. Ann, if you were able to get the management to respond to a complaint about the racket in the next room, you were either lucky or they catered to you because you are a well-known person. My husband and I have had many vacations ruined because of wild partying in adjoining rooms and drunken guests singing in the corridors at 2 a.m. In spile of our complaints, we have found hotel management to be reluctant to correct the situation simply be- cause they don't wish to offend paying guests. We've had drunk neighbors come in at 3 a.m., turn on the TV very loud and then pass out. We've had teen-agers jumping off the diving board into the pool right outside our room at 4 in the morning. Recently, the people in an adjoining room got up at 6 a.m. and put on their TV full blast so they could hear it while they were showering and blow-drying their hair. Surprisingly enough, Ann, hotel employees can also be offenders. We've heard maids shouting at one another, banging their carts in and out of elevators at all hours, slamming doors and so on. I hate to sound cynical, but I suppose what it boils down to is plain, everyday manners. I've concluded that most people are rude and inconsiderate. — Southern Ontario Reader Dear Reader: Rather than "rude and inconsiderate," I would say "thoughtless." This is especially true when they've had a bit too much liquid refreshment. Then, too, there's something about being away from home that makes thoughtless people less considerate than ever. Just ask any hotel or motel maid. FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE By Lynn Johnston What's your s/gn? Astrological horoscopes are for entertainment purpose* only.
