Here Are Six Reasons to Wait * BY RUTH MILLETT "Why are you so against teen-age marriages?" asks one of my younger readers who. at 17, is engaged to be married to the "most wonderful boy she has ever known," and who is also 17. "I'll bet you can't give me three good reasons why we should wait any longer to get married," she says. I'll give you three good reasons — and then three more for good measure. The years between 17 and 20 are years of maturing and the fact that you find a boy "perfect" at 17 is no guarantee that you'll still find him perfect at 20. If there is any chance for either of you to continue your education, you shouldn't quit school at 17 to take on the responsibilities of marriage. While you may feel very mature at 17 and ready to settle down, a boy of the same age isn't usually as mature as a girl. If he finds out after the honeymoon is over that he doesn't like being tied down, you will be miserably unhappy — and so will he. By saddling a 17-year-old boy with the financial,responsibility of marriage you are taking a great risk of limiting his future accomplishments. It isn't easy for a young man with responsibilities to take chances. He can't take time out for specialized training that would fit him for a better job or for the kind of work he decides ne would like to do. You get only one chance in life to be both young and carefree and by marrying at 17 you cut that time too short. Since you aren't making a choice between marrying or not marrying the boy you love but only between marrying immediately or waiting until you are both older and better prepared for marriage, you have nothing to lose by waiting. Convinced? No? Then save this column and read it over five years from now and see if it doesn't seem to make a lot more sense. NEA Service, Inc.)

When he complained of soreness behind his ears I took his temperature (it was 102). I said "Donna, 1 think Glen has the mumps." She replied. "1 think so, too." 1 then told her she had a nerve to bring him to my house and expose my youngsters. She said. "It's healthy for kids to get everything early." I am furious because my two kids came down with the mumps yesterday. Is she right? KOOKY'S SISTER-IN-LAW DEAR MOTHER: Your kooky sister-in-law is mistaken. Your doctor will tell you that every normal precaution should be taken lo protect children against all diseases. It's stupid for a mother to take a sick child anywhere. A youngster with a fever should be at home. Furthermore, most children get enough illnesses without inviting more. She did you no favor. * * • » DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm the mother of live school-age children. I must work to support the family because my husband is ill. A woman lives near us who is separated from her husband. She calls my husband almost every day to help her out of an "emergency".

Am I being petty because 1 have to go to work and he doesn't? Please straighten me out. WORKHORSE WIFE DEAR WORKHORSE: Any man who is capable of helping a neighbor out of the "emergencies" you describe ought to be able to help his wife out by getting a part-time job. 1 recommend it. * * • * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 13-year-old son and his friend saved their allowance for weeks to hear a well-known pianist.

Kill Adults, Doctor Warns BY SCIENCE SERVICE CHICAGO — Chickenpog, usually a mild childhood disease, can kill adults. A Texas physician has just reported four deaths from chickenpox complications. In the adults the disease became disseminated and the lungs were affected. Dr. Stewart A. Fish, of Dallas, reporting here in the Journal of the American Medical Association, says chickenpox, which is "usually a mild childhood disease, may cause severe systemic complications and death in adults." He says the lungs are almost always involved and that other vital organs including the brain, kidneys and liver may be affected. The death rate has been estimated at between 10% and 30% for patients with such disseminated chickenpox. At present, there is no drug therapy available which will cure the disease or modify its course once the lungs and other viscera are involved.. Awareness of the danger is important, ae early diagnosis may be a means of preventing dangerous complications. The doctor makes a plea for earlier hospitalization of patients with disseminated chickenpox. His four patients were not hospitalized until they were desperately ill. Dr. Fish says routine X-rays should be performed on all adult patients with chickenpox. $00 Our Selection OMEQA and HAMILTON WATCHES EDWARD OH JIWU.KR Authorized DMrikutora Stratford Hol.l Bldj.
