MONDAY, JUNK 20, I960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Goy/e Preston Weds Henry -S. Sedgwick Jr. MRS. HENRY SIBLEY SEDGWICK JR. Ann Landers Some Liked Her Answer And Many Did Not DEAR READERS: I've been swamped with letters from readers who insist that I've supplied drinking husbands with a coast-to-coast alibi. A few husbands wrote to say "Thank you." I intended no such thing. i Here's what the mail has been like: DEAR ANN: You gave my no-good louse of a husband exactly what he's been looking for — an Ann Landers, excuse to stop off at a bar every night. I refer to your answer to "Last Ditch Stand." When this unhappy wife complained you told her to take inventory and ask herself what home is like. You stuck the knife deeper by saying, "When a husband must fortify himself with bottled courage before facing the wrecking crew at home, it means home isn't all it should be." I'd like to wring your neck, Ann Landers. Maybe YOUR husband is no lush and you don't know what it's like to live in fear that the guy has been picked up for drunken driving or maybe has killed someone with his car. Let me tell yoU it's plain unadulterated hell. Thanks for nothing. BEER JOINT WIDOW. * * * * DEAR ANN: Your answer to "Last Ditch" was the best one you've ever given. I am having it framed. When I married Ruth she was sweet, lovely to look at. wonderful, company and very affectionate. We had a great tfme together—until the babies ' started to come. Then everything went to pieces; her shape, her disposition,' her interest in me, the meals, and the house, I've begged her to see a minister or a marriage counselor but she won't go. Yours is the first sensible Explanation I've seen for this problem. Everybody else just assumes the man is a skunk and lets it go at that. Three cheers from . . . ONE OF MANY. DEAR ANN: You are a traitor to your sex. Instead of sticking up for the women (who, Lord knows, NEED your support) you defend the selfish, pampered men who should really get a swift kick in the bar-stool. Why don't you admit that some husbands are cowards, weaklings and just plain stinkers and they wouldn't come straight home for Hedy Lamar? HAD IT. DEAR HAD IT: I agree with you in part—but what's wrong with a woman who would select such a lemon? (P.S. Since you brought it up, beauty doesn't guarantee prompt and faithful homecoming. Beautiful Hedy has just shed Number Five. > * * * * DEAR ANN: Your answer 1o "Last Ditch" was a prize. In our house it's the other way around. My wife is the one who lives in taverns. Am I supposed to be at. home waiting for her with a smile, an apron and a hot, tasty meal? OTHER FOOT. DEAR ANN: Your answer to the woman whose husband hung around bars every night was like a dagger in the back. I've got five kids and I am raising the.m alone. Oh, I'm married all right, but my husband says the kids are MY job and he refuses to raise a finger even when the boys are killing each other. So a guy who stops at the bar is setting "bottled courage" is he? Well, we wives sviio have to put up with drunk- on bums for husbands, smile to the kids and make excuses for "Daddy" every night, are the ones who need the courage. If we wives can get through the day without liquid help, the great big man should be able to do it, too. TESTED AND TIRED. * * * * DEAR A.VN: I knew it all along. YOU ARE A MAN. No woman would have given that answer to Last Ditch Stand. Whose picture are they running with your column? ON TO YOU. DEAR ON: I insist on posing for all my own pictures.
