Ann Landers Guns and Romance Do Not Mix Well Anyway DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a friend who thinks it's all right to carry a gun in the glove compartment of his car. He frequently parks in a lonely spot with his girl friend and says the gun might come in handy one of these days. Ho got the idea from reading accounts of how innocent young lovers who were parked along the road were attacked by maniacs. Isn't it against the law to carry a gun in a car? He says if you say it is, he'll leave the gun at home. What is your answer? THE SKEPTIC DEAR SKEPTIC: A special permit is .needed to carry a gun in an automobile. Truck drivers or salesmen who carry valuable cargo may have need for a revolver, but young lovers should never park beside the road — gun or no gun. Parkers are sitting ducks for robbers and assorted nuts. Furthermore, the automobile Ann Landers, was designed for transportation and it is a shabby and inappropriate setting for romance. * * • • DEAR ANN: I'm having trouble with my boy friend's mother. She's trying to break us up. Tom and I were supposed to be going steady. I decided to accept a date with another guy to see if Tom really loved me. Tom found out I was out with someone else so he took his father's car (withou^ permission) and went looking for me. The police picked him up for speeding and also arrested him for driving %vithout a license. (He's under-age and can't get & license for another year.) This is the second time he's been picked up for this so now he's in big trouble. His mother says it's all my fault. She claims if I'd been true to him he wouldn't be in this mess. Tom doesn't want to go steady any more because his mother is making his life miserable. Is this fair? MIXED UP DEAR MIXED: It's a sad state of affairs when a boy who isn't old enough to get a driver's license becomes so tied up with a girl that he must go looking for her when she's out with someone else. Tom's mother should not blame you for the trouble, however. She raised him. You only went with him. Stop this going steady .nonsense. Both you and Tom will be better off. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son is being married to a very nice girl. Her folks cannot afford to put on any kind of a wedding so we have offered to do everything. They are pleased and so are we, since we have three sons and no daughters. We have a plan for entertainment after the ceremony but my neighbor who knows a lot about etiquette says it's nof. proper. I'd like your advice. We want to invite the relatives from both sides and also the close friends and neighbors. We will serve them all a buffet luncbjafter the ceremony which takes place at noon. Then I would like to ease the friends out of the house and have severaJ card games for just the relatives. They could play bridge, pinochle or poker. After all, pie religious part will be over and we want everyone to have a good time. What do you say? GROOM'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: I agree with your neighbor that it would not be proper to ease out (he guests and set the place up for cards. If you want to have card games arrange it for another time and don't try 1o combine it with your son's wedding. * » * • If alcohol is robbing you or someone you love of health and dignity, sed for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "Help For The Alcoholic," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.
