He owns about half the cattle in Texas and then they had to go find oil on his grazing land. This uncle came to visit us last week. I had just finished practicing the violin and although I know I should not have done it, I left the violin i on a chair. Well, [this big fat uncle sat right Ann Landers, down on the violin and smashed it to pieces. Instead of offering to buy me a new fiddle he said, "Violins don't belong on chairs." He also made a few mean cracks about the crashing sound scaring him. . I think it was mighty cheap of him not to offer to buy me a new violin. He could get me a Stradiva'rius and never miss the money. Am 1 right? FORMER FIDDLER DEAR FORMER FIDDLER: Violins don't belong on chairs. But people ought to exercise a reasonable amount of caution before sitting any place. There could be darning needles, crochet hooks, fly-paper, kittens or a baby brother on one of those chairs. This column appears in many Texas cities. Let's hope your rich uncle isn't too cheap to buy a newspaper, and that he sees this letter and takes the hint. (P.S. It needn't be a Stradivarius, Unc—but get the kid at least as good a violin as you sat on.) * * * * DEAR ANN: My father was a rather famous band leader. I always had a yen for musicians. At 18 I fell for a drummer. He was terribly handsome and I was a romantic nit-wit who thought I knew it all. My dad told me Teddy was n.g-/but I wouldn't listen. Well, to make a long story short I lost control of myself and wound up pregnant. When I told Teddy he said it was a tough break for me and he had his career to think about. He skipped town and I was left to face the music—without my musician. A wonderful fellow I used to go with heard about my trbuble and begged me to marry him. He isn't much on looks, but he has 'wonderful character and he was crazy about me. We were married six months before the baby was born. He treats the boy as if it were, his own. Two years have passed and we are happy together although my life isn't exciting or romantic. I got a phone call from'my drummer-boy yesterday. He says he hasn't been able to get me out of his mind. He*ti coming to town in two weeks to play a job and wants to see me and his .son. tye says legally the boy is his, and I have no right to keep him away. I have no Interest in seeing him but I want to know if he lias- a right to see his son? Please help me. CLARISSA UKAK CLARISSA: If this heel has the nerve to call when he gets to town tell him to take his drum and beat It. Biologically, he's the father but he has no legal rights. The man who married you is the boy's legal father. • * * » UKAR ANN: Our son who il 18, and a high school senior, is: going steady with a girl 16. She's as mature physically as a 20-year-old girl and years ahead of our sqn in ideas. To make matters worse, her parents are very lenient with her and the girl does as she pleases. We would die if our son got into trouble. Keeping company with such a girl always triples the danger. What can we do? P.D.Q. DEAR P.D.Q. You can't control someone else's daughter. These days you do well to control your own. Don't be bashful about setting limits for your son and see to it that he obeys them. If he has had good moral upbringing and is armed with the facts, you needn't worry. * * * *, To learn how to keep your hoy friend in line without losing him, send for Ann Landers' booklet. "Necking and Petting —And How Far to Go," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Alton Telegraph and enclose a stamped, self- addressed envelope.) <© I860 Field Enterprises, Inc.)

' WOMAJf WITH All fURlflf OOMPL8X" A young houa%wife In Winnipeg has Just written a long, informative letter, detailing her many complaints, both physical and emotional. If I quoted the whole letter In detail, it would fill an entire column. So, I shall simply summarize the Important facts. In brief, she had always been well until after the birth of her two children. Her daughter is 5'<4 years old and her son is 3. She says, , "I am very nervous, when I get upset, the nerve in my eye twitches. Also in my arms and legs. I get a swelling above the heart and sometimes It's so bad, that my left arm swells under the arm pit. it hurts so that I cannot raise my arm." But that is not all. She points ' out that these symptoms appear only when she is upset and that, for some strange reason, she is embarrassed in the presence of her friends and blushes very easily. Since she says, "I have done no one wrong," she cannot understand why she has an "inferiority complex." Some of the more significant clues «to this patient's problems come later in her letter. "When 1 act happy and smile, it's all on the surface," she admits. There is much more in this letter which is quite revealing, providing a great deal of insight into this young woman's organic and emotional complaints but lack of space compels brevity. Today, let us consider only the fact that our reader has two young children. Two Children Disease In a magazine article several years ago, J, described several similar cases under the title of "The Mother-With-Two-Children Disease." Let's see what happens when a mother gives birth to her first child. She is already determined that she wil] not bring up this youngster in the irresponsible, careless manner of some of her friends. When the infant is small, she finds it possible to provide her child with 100 per cent of her love and attention. Here, we generally have a happy mother and a happy child. Now, when the child is 2 years old or so, a second baby is born. While waiting for the M.D. biftn of this Bewoftu yuuftflisier, mamms cwiiwi understand how she win cfrer be able to , love any baby as much as the loved the first one. But, here, 90COflQ WuRflci Pnfl TftO When the second baby is born, she find that this second one is at least as beautiful and as wonderful as the first. Now she is determined not to play favorites. She will give both children the same amount of care, attention and love. While the babies are in their cribs and playpens, everything seems to be working out quite well. No problems yet. But, now, another year or two passes and both children have been liberated from the playpen and crib and have tree run of the house. It becomes more difficult to provide each child with 100 per cent of her time and care. The best she.can do is to give each one only 50 per cent. Suddenly—Monsters Suddenly, the little angels are transformed into monsters who fight with each other and both may even grab for the same toy at the same time. Mother's nervous tension rises. Squabbles have to be settled and, in these squabbles, one child may be the winner while the other is the loser. But, since poor mamnia cannot beat her children all the time, she takes it out on herself. The home, which was so sweet and pleasant a short while ago, has now become almost a madhouse. No wonder, then, that mama may be so upset inside while she tries to maintain a happy appear- / ance on the surface. The solution to this problem is often simple, for Nature plays its hand at this point and mamma finds herself pregnant with a third. By the time the third child is born, mamma has learned that she can no longer give her children 100 per cent of herself. The squabbles may continue but her ears, fortunately, have become deafened ot them. In other cases, Time cures Mother-With-Two Children Disease. The youngsters grow up in spite of everything. They no longer fight for the same toy.s although they still may vie with each other for the attention of their parents. Both children and mother are now more mature. © I960 N. Y.

In that column I suggested that any mother of young children deserves one day off- a week and that she should try to arrange for it, even if it should mean keeping a friend's children one day a week in return for her own day of freedom. The idea apparently found more merit with young mothers than their husbands. The husbands came up with all sorts of arguments aga;nst the idea of a day off for mama. "You've got all kinds of electrical appliances to make your work easier. What makes you think you need a day off every week?" was one husband's reaction. Another told his wife that she should be ashamed of wantr ing to get away from three sweet children—all under school age—even for a little while. Another said he couldn't afford to pay a baby sftter sp his wife could have time off, even though his wife was teaching 20 piano students along with keeping house and looking after several young children. All I can say is that I hope the wives don't give up too easily. Any young husband who thinks his wife doesn't need or deserve a little time to herself ought to be challenged to take over her job completely during his next vacation. If mama would go away for two weeks and' leave him in full charge to look after the children, do the housework and laundry, do the cooking and marketing, and sd on, he would be a much wiser and more understanding husband when she returned to take over the job. Just as a wife who has never worked may have no idea of what her husband's work day is like,' so a husband who has never been responsible for a house and children may picture his wife's job as far less demanding and confining than it actually is. If your husband says you don't need any time off frdhi your job—though he probably gets one, two, or two and a half days a week off from his—just tell him this: . , "Take over my job for two 7-day weeks and by Ihten if you aren't ready for a day off, I'll forget the whole idea."

Mind Your Manners An informal Invitation, even though it comes through the mail, may be Answered by phone. But an Invitation written in the third pt-ison should always be answered in written form and also phrased in the third person. . Being high-handed with waiters makes a man seem like a show-off, even though he may think he is impressing others with how important he is. If your new neighborhood is friendly. enough so that your neighbors call on you, be sure to return ^very call. If someone is rude enough to ask you how much you earn, you can turn the question aside In any way that occurs to you. No one is obliged to answer such a personal question, Oood Newn Homemakers who pride themselves on serving taste appealing entrees at easy on the budget prices will find the answer in lamb. Make inquiry if you don't see the wanted cuts on display at yoiy favorite store for the lamb industry is encouraging retailers to call them to your attention through special promotions. Honeyed Lamb Chop* If your family fnvors lamb chops and who doesn't, select from the array of shoulrler chops, arm or rib or loin chops. (For a double treat have them cut double thick (about one inch! then "honey" them this way. Broil for about. 10 minutes on one side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then turn and baste with a mixture of ] i cup each of honey and lemon juice, 2 eggs well beaten and a dash of nutmeg. Continue broiling until the desired degree of doneness is reached, then serve piping hot. Something Has Been Added For variety-miriHed and time conscious cooks there's something new on the grocery shelves that teams naturally with many foods, especially lamb. It's scalloped and au gratin potatoes in the package. Peeled and uniformly sliced, then dehydrated, these potatoes in a package are in the form of chips and need only water to "bring them to life."

Much of Charm Lies in Your t » Conversation By ALICIA HART The other day, I had lunch with a friend who is in her early fifties. She is slim, chic and well-groomed with beautiful silvery gray hair. But the, moment she starts to talk, this very favorable impression vanishes. For her conversation is one long tale of woe. It centers about her own illnesses, the illnesses and woes of her friends and relatives and her fears of the future. Before the •luncheon . was over, she had forced upon* me the feeling mat she was an old, tired woman. This is a common failing'of many mature women. And it doesn't seem to matter if they are successful wives and mothers or successful career women! Their conversation is gloomy and filled wtih foreboding. If this is a failing of yours, check yourself sharply. For it can strip you of all charm and render null and void good looks, good grooming, smart clothes. A joy in living is a very special ingredient of charm. We can't be joyous all 'of the time but we needn't pile cur woes on others.—NEA.

Boso?n Makes Comeback In Paris riy NADEANE WALKER PARIS, /P— The bosom mad« a comeback, along with hand- span waistlines, in the Lanvin- Castillo fall and winter fashion collection shown this morning. Designer Castillo's main idea is a teardrop snaped skirt which rovers the knefrs by a 2 or 3 inches. His show includes the prettiest colors and rolor combinations seen In Paris so far in this dark and season. The Lanvin-Castillo collec- 'tinn rebels against nearly al! the trends of the season, in fact, and looks handsome enough to get by with it, Castillo's "1961 woman" owes nothing to the '30s and late '20s. which have inspired nearly all the other designers in- vluding Dior's Yves Saint Laurent. who showed Wednesday. The teardrop skirt gets its shape by curving out slightly over the hips — or toward the hem in suit skirts— and drawing in to a slanted two or three inch band at the bottom. This hemline Is neither gathered in enough to be harem, nor tight enough to be hobble, as the mannequins proved by their easy, unhampered walk. Actually, it is another version of the melon skirt shown • by Dior Wednesday, but it comes out a great deal more gracefully by starting higher and ending lower. Belted and fitted waists naturally show off the bustline to better advantage, and evening fashions actually glorify it with deep scooped, slightly shelved decolletage and ruffled and jeweled bra fronts. Some of Castillo's most delectable color combinations were purple with pale pink. brown with creamy beige, white with violet, pink trimming black, black over brown, and dark and pale gold satin. A range of violets and reds and pinks run through the The showings of Chanel and Dessos Friday - will virtually wind up the big Paris season k for this fall.
