Your Problems DEAR ANN LANDERS] My father is constantly urging me to accept dates with his boss' son. Chauncy digs me but he is a creep. In the first place, Chauncy doesn't dance and has no desire to learn. He thinks my friends are wicrdies and I think his friends are stuck-up and boring. Every time I light a cigarette Chauncy gives me a lecture on lung cancer. If I order French fries he goes on and on about fried food and stomach trouble. Chauncy's idea of a blast is to go somewhere with his parents. My idea of fun is to get as far away as possible from the old museum pieces. I'm 16 and mature enough to pick my own friends. Please say so in your column and get my father off my back. — SACRIFICIAL LAMB Dtar Lamb: It's always a mistake for parents to try to play Cupid for their children. Some perfectly good romances are knocked right in the head because of parental sponsorship. In this case it's especially unfortunate becaus'c if you had discovered, Chauncy on your own you might have liked him — and perhaps even learned something in the bargin. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What can I do about a husband who expects perfection in all our friends? Last night I counted 20 couples with whom we were once on very good terms. We don't see these people anymore because my husband hds picked them to pieces. The longest we've been able to maintain a friendship is about two years. After that the woman's laugh becomes irritating, or the husband brags too much, or he cheats at cards or his wife wears too much eye make-up. Last night it happened again. After Mr. and Mrs. X left, my husband said, "Well, that's etnough of THEM. Can you imagine anybody in his right mind supporting Scranton for President? Don't invite them here again and don't accept any invitations to their pltce." Please tell me what to do. — RUNNING OUT OF FRIENDS Dtar Running: I checked your envelope and am happy you live in Minneapolis. At the rate your husband is going, you'll need to look in a different city for friends, and it's nice that St. Paul is • close. . People wfco are severly critical of others are essentially displeased with themselves. When your husband thinks better of himself ho will then have a better opinion of others. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: My 84- RUDY VALENZUELA BR 6-4947 $12 Taylor City, — by Ann Landers — year-old daughter was divorced n 1961. Since that time I have jeen taking care of her children while she works. The oldest is in the first grade and the youngest will be ready for kindergarten next fall. I love my grandchildren very much but they wear me out and ie me down. I've been looking forward to the time when both children would be in school so I could take it easier. Yesterday my daughter told me she is pregnant. The man is not able to marry her as he has a wife and family. I want her to go to a home for unwed mothers and put the baby up for adoption, but she wants to keep the child. When I told her I don't have the strength to raise another child, she called me a terrible mother and said I was letting her down when she needed me most Now I feel guilty. Please straighten around my thinking.— BIG DECISION Pflflt • Garden City TelegrsiM IS, lf«4 Dear Decision: It's the same old story — "What have you done for me lately?" Don't ASK your daughter — TELL her that you will not raise the child and let her know she has no choice. Your suggestion is by far the best for the child, the mother, and for you. Ann Landers' frank and informative new book, "Teen-Agers and Sex" is now available at your book store. . Ann Lander* will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Garden City Telegram, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envel- pe. —Whether buying or felling, uae Telegram Want Ads!
