Ann Landers It's Best to Forget the Past And Concentrate on Future DKAR ANN: I was physically run down and mentally exhausted. I picked on my husband until he lost his temper and spoke harshly to me front of my children. Then jl threatened him I with a divorce. I told several [friends we were having trouble. (Then I committed the unpardonable sin of going to . his Ann Landers, mother and sister and filled th«m in from A to Z. After that four-hour visit I became so ill I couldn't do my house work. My husbarfd called the doctor. The doctor said I was in very bad condition and ordered complete bed- rest and medication. A month has passed and I feel like a new person. I'm so ashamed I can't look my friends or relatives in the face. My husband has been an angel—never once has he thrown up the past to me. This letter is not a request for advice. It's only a warning to wives who may be nervous and run down to keep their mouths shut and go to a doctor. How ugly and disloyal I must look 1 in the eyes of others. The fact that I was sick doesn't excuse me—the damage is done. ASHAMED DUAR ASHAMED: You did not ask for advice but I'd like to offer a few words from Omar Khayyam. "Nor all your piety nor wit can lure it back to cancel half a line—nor all your tears wash out a, word of it." In plainer language: What's in the past is finished—now forget It. Don't waste another ounce of energy punishing yourself. Concentrate instead on rebuilding your marriage. * * * • DEAR ANN: Our 4-year-old daughter has started something and I don't know how to cope with her. She's been getting up in the middle of the night and crawling into bed with her father. We have a large bed but she never comes to my side, she always goes to him. I've told my husband this habit is not a good one. He says Veronica claims it's too cold in her room (or too warm). Or she says she hears funny noises, or our bed is softer. The child has an amazing variety of excuses. Veronica is aware that my husband and I disagree on this. She seems to be enjoying the trouble she's stirred up. Should I say nothing and let her keep this up as long as she likes? Or should this practice be stopped? OTHER HALF DKAR OTHER.' Veronica is wielding a triple-edged sword and reaping enormous satisfaction from her success. If a child calls out during the night, he should be checked, reassured and tucked in tenderly, but he should not be rewarded by being taken into the parents' bed. Your husband should put an end to this racket promptly and if you can't get through to him, maybe your family doctor can * • * * DKAR ANN: My mother divorced my Dad when I was very young. She remarried a few yea'rs later. I go by my father's name, which is. of course different from my mother's name. It's embarrassing when friends come to my home and call my mother by my FOR AIRLINE RESERVATIONS «nd TICKETS Call th« TRAVEL PHONE HO 5-2558 Born to: Mr. and Mm. Robert Young.

BOXSTORAGE FOR WINTER WOOLEN! Dial HO S-M77 NOTHINO TO PAY TILL FALL According to Survey Those Who Know Teen Habits Best Say It's 'No Smoking' 3-1 By EtnWfR OlLBfcRT PKtHfMI of Un Gilbert fotttfc Research Co. Smoking appears to be losing ground with American teen* agers. Three out of four of the young people we queried, In our latest poll told us 'they do not. smoke themselves |nd about half said they don't approve of their friends smoking either. More than three yearj ago when we put the question to the teen-agers of tyuit day only one in four of those 16 or older claimed to be a nonsmoker and half of those 1315 said they didn't smoke. What happened in the meantime? Undoubtedly reports, linking cigarette smoking and cancer have done their bit to discourage the habit but Mom and Dad play a large role, too. Chances are, if the folks don't smoke neither do the kids. In the two cases out of five where Dad was a non-smoker, nine out of 10 boys and eight out of 10 girls told us they followed his example. Five out of eight of the young people listed Mother as a nonsmoker and fully 80 per cent of both boys and girls said her cigarette habits were good enough for them. The teen-agers' comments on smoking varied. "Smoking," said 16-year-old Jim Slay of Richmond, Va., "is unhealthful, disgusting, expensive, unnecessary and ridiculous." Girls Smoke Less "There is no purpose or future in smoking," opined Veva M. Olbert, 18, of Enid, Okla. "If everyone who smokes would ask themselves why, THE SAME GIRL ... WHICH HAS THE.TEEN-AGE CHARM? there would be fewer smokers." John S. Irons, 17, of Burling- tqp,, Vt, said he thinks teenagers should be permitted to smoke "if they want to squander their money, jeopardize their health and look cheap and sloppy." "Teen-agers are said to have more problems than any other age group," said 18-year-old Gladys Allen of Jackson, Miss., voicing approval. "A person then needs to have something to keep his nerves from shattering." It came as no surprise to find that boys are more likely than girls to smoke. About three boys in 10 told us they smoke, while the ratio was only two in 10 among the girls. Perhaps Connie Nystrom, 15, of St. Paul, Minn., summed up the difference: "A woman can't possibly look feminine while puffing on a cigarette. It's OK for the boys, if it's not carried to extremes." Say They Smoke Little The youngsters who do use tobacco, however, told us they don't smoke very 'much—although about half said they think their friends smoke quite a lot. About one out of three of the smokers—one boy in five and half the girls—said they smoke only a few cigarettes a month. Among the boys, though, another one in five said he smokes more than a pack a day. More than three quarters of the young smokers in our poll told us they don't know whether or not their parents are aware of their smoking. Boys are more inclined than girls to tell the folks about it. Of those who have told their parents, more than half the boys said they received approval while only two girls in five said they had the old folks' OK. The first cigarette—traditionally composed of cornsilk and smoked behind the barn—appears no longer to be a great childhood event. Nearly three out of five young people couldn't remember how!" old they were at the time they got one. SEAMS TO ME By Patricia Scott We are not all endowed with perfect figures. Certainly, most of us are not voluptuous. But this is no reason for walking around in baggy dress tops. One little fold, and presto, you suddenly have a shape. Q. I am a grown woman but I have a flat'bust. How do you alter a pattern to fit? I enjoy reading your column and have received some very helpful hints concerning sewing. ' A. Many thanks for your kind and encouraging words. To take in excess fullness at bust, make a small tuck horizontally across pattern. Decrease size of armhole slightly. Ease in sleeve (see illustration). * * * • Q. I am preparing to make a plaid dress with a band down the center frotn of bodice. If this band is cut on the bias, should the interfacing be cut the same or can it be cut on the straight grain to keep band from stretching out of shape? I have read something to the effect that a straight cut interfacing will keep a bias in shape but I am not sure of the results. A. I'm certainly glad you didn't try that "something to the effect" you read. The interfacing for the bias band must also be cut on the bias. If outside fabric and interfacing are not cut on the same grain, you'll have a great problem, especially after dry cleaning. The outside bias band will still sag while the interfacing will react quite differently. Result: rippled band! * * * * Q. I have trouble marking skirts (around the bottom) on myself. Can you tell me any good way? I have a skirt marker but it doesn't seem to work. Then I had a dress form made, but even if I can get the dress over the shoulders, which I usually can't, the stand moves, A. Frankly, I can't think of any better way for you. If you cannot use a skirt (you shouldn't have trouble if you follow the instructions on the box) the only other alternative is to have someone measure it for you. If anyone has a better idea, I'd love to hear about it. To my readers: I would be most grateful if you would try to limit your letters to one question. With mail coming in from ail over the country, it is almost impossible to answer letters consisting of five or six questions, especially since most of you wish atjvice immediately. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated! Altonians Vacation In North Carolina Mr. and Mrs. Junior Ayres of 2715 Sanford Ave., accompanied by their daughter, June, and Miss Rose Mary Twitty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Twitty of 802 Milton Rd., are vacationing at Fort Bragg, N.

But ideally, your summer wardrobe should include one cotton suit, three or four dresses with sleeves, two or three sleeveless dresses for very hoj days, and one or two silk dresses for late afternoon or early evening.
