They Plan to Live It Up While They Are Young Teacher-Parent Correspondence DEAR A1WT: This question is so personal we wouldn't think of discussing It with anyone we know. We are planning to marry in the fall. I'm 22, Jim Is 24. e are college educated, and we've both been I around a good 1 deal. We he- j Heve a good life doesn't just happen—It is planned. We have a rather unique I plan of our own. Ann Lander*. We don't want the best years of our lives cluttered up with bills for straightening kids' teeth and the numerous inconveniences that come with having a family. We want to work together, travel together and have a good time while we're young enough to enjoy it. After we've been married about 20 years and are ready to settle down, then we'll have a couple of kids. We figure we'll be more mature and therefore better parents. Do you think such a plan is workable? Would you O.K. it? NO SIG DEAR NO SIG: Whether or not you get my O.K. is not important. Mother Nature is the girl whose O.K. you'll need. If you think a woman past 40 need only whistle and the stork will come flying with a bundle from heaven, I have news—it doesn't always work this way. Even if Nature cooperated, the emotional strain of rearing a family is more difficult for a woman in her 40's than in her 20's. If it's advice you want, I say have your family when you're young and take those trips later—when you've earned the rest. * • » • DEAR ANN: You recently printed a letter from a mother of four sons. She said the young girls of today are aggressive, that they chase after her sons, call them on the phone, drive to their home and park in front for hours. You didn't help matters any by suggesting the mothers of young girls are to blame for their shameless behavior. It so happens I have four daughters. The oldest is 18, the youngest is 14. They are perfect ladies and wouldn't dream of doing any of the things this mother wrote about. 1 think you owe me an apology. NOT GUILTY DEAR NOT OtrtLTV: There is an old saying that If you throw a stone Into a pack of dogs the one who is hit barks. How come I heard from you? * * * * DEAR ANN: My father has a set of season tickets to the ball games. Dad and Mom have lots of social plans so 1 usually get the tickets. I like a fellow I'll call Bruce. I've taken him to three games this season. Now he expects It. I wouldn't mind except that he never asks me out when he has to spend money. A week ago his club had a big affair and he took another girl. I like him better than anyone but I don't want to be a chump. Shall I tell him how I feel? LOU DEAR LOU: Tell him what— that if he doesn't take you out you're not going to treat him to any future ball games? If you must clobber him into asking you for a date, what good is it? Don't invite Bruce to any more games until he shows some initiative. He's taking you for granted, and this puts the dead hand on romance. » * * * DEAR ANN: Recently you told a young lady three can keep a secret if one of them is dead. If you will check Poor Richard's Almanac you'll find the accurate quote is "Two can keep a secret if one is dead." SAM DEAR SAM: I didn't realize I was filching from Poor Richard. Changing the odds is unforgivable, and I apologize. Thanks for letting me know. POOR ANN * * * « Are your parents too strict?

The Mature Parent When YouMiss a Comeback, Learn a Lesson of Life By MURIEL LAWRENCE The new neighbor who'd just moved into the apartment house came hurrying in from the street just as Mrs. L. and her younger daughter entered the elevator. They held it for her. As its automatic door sfiut, Mrs. L. said: "Good morning. I hear that you and your husband are from out-of-town." The neighbor spoke without turning. "Do you always make it your business to know everything about new tenants?" she said. So startled was Mrs. L. by this rebuff that the neighbor was out of the elevator before she fully realized it. Then 'she felt fury at the neighbor. But before she'd reached her own apartment door, her rage at the neighbor had turned to rage at herself. Furious, she thought of the devastating retorts she should have made to the neighbor. She might have said, "From here on, let me assure you, nothing about you will be of any interest to me!" She could have said, "Wherever you come from, you certainly learned bad manners there!" Instead, she'd said nothing. She'd let the woman get away with her insolence. By the time Mrs. L. had closed her apartment door behind her, she was so mad at her failure to crush the neighbor that she crushed Janey instead by slapping her .sharply for dropping her coat on a chair. This kind of experience is as common as it is unreasonable. It is unreasonable because we can't always triumph over other people. Therefore, we shouldn't want to. Though in our daydreams we may like to imagine ourselves as always witty, always devastating, always irresistible, always ready with the perfect comeback, the fact is. we are not the supreme beings of our imaginations. We are inadequate to many occasions. Our dreams of perfect triumph art at silly as the fantasies of children who imagine themselves Superman and other unconquerable creatures. So when we start berating ourselves for some failure to produce the devastating comeback, it's wise to ask ourselves: "Why can't I Jose • fight occasionally? Why must I always be victorious?" The moment we stop needing to triumph in encounters like Mrs. L.'s we start responding to them sooner. With our minds on ourselves instead of on the other fellow's conquest, we can say simply, "You misunderstood me. I spoke to be friendly not to be prying."— NBA. Child Won't Be Hurt By Missing Meal When your child refuses to eat, let him miss a meal. Marian Tanner, dietitian at the University of Illinois child development laboratory, says that it will not hurt the healthy child to miss one or two meals. In fact, it often takes that to make him learn that refusing to eat does not pay. The child will noj let himself starve to death. Miss Tanner recommends that parents give the normal, healthy child an allotted time (20 minutes or so) in which to eat. If he hasn't eaten or is just playing with his food at the end of this time, casually remove his plate. If the child isn't allowed to snack, he will probably eat his next meal. But if he still refuses, you may need to repeat the procedure. It's wise to see that the neighbors don't supplement the child's diet with cookies and candy during this "hunger strike" at home. Parental patience and understanding can often channel this "testing" phase of child behavior into happy mealtime habits.

He'll be at school a little late; He's throwing up. You're the Doctor By Joseph D. Wawersug, M. D. SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN When the phone wakes you at 5:10 a.m., you secretly curse your misfortune. It's the worst time to be awakened because, at that hour, it's almost impossible to get back in bed and have a nap before the day's work begins. Still, you answer the phone as alert as you can. "It's Mrs. Higman," says a voice, "Albert's wife. Can you come right over, Doctor? Albert's in trouble." "You mean his asthma has kicked up again?" "No, it's not his asthma this time but he's in terrible agony. It's his stomach. It woke him out of his sleep about an hour ago. He thought it would get better but we couldn't wait any longer. Can you please come over right away?" You automatically slip into your clothes. Over the years, you have trained yourself so that you can get completely dressed in a pitch-dark room. Why disturb the little woman any more than you have to? It's tough enough to be a doctor's wife. As you drive over to the Higman house, you recall that you have been taking care of Albert for three or four years. He's a severe asthmatic. His lungs are overinflated, a condition called emphysema that is often associated with asthma. He has been so sick the past year that it has been necessary to give him cortisone- like medicine to keep him breathing. Still, Albert is not an old man. He's 58 and manages an insurance agency. You find Mr. Higman in his pajamas and bathrobe, lying almost motionless on the living room couch. His wife gives you the story. When the sharp abdominal pain awoke him from his sleep, he thought he had some indigestion and went into the kitchen for a teaspoonful of baking soda and hot water. In the past, this always relieved him but today nothing worked. The agony was fierce. Patient Perspires You observe perspiration, cold and clammy, standing out like so many small beads on the patient's forehead. His blood pressure had always been a little high but now it is low. His pulse is rapid and thin. His color is pale and ashen. When you put your hands on his abdomen, you find that the abdominal muscles are so tense they actually feel hard and board-like. You tell the Hlgmans that Albert's condition requires immediate hospitalization and that he will probably need an emergency operation. You phone the hospital and arrange for his admission. You phone the surgeon and tell him you are admitting a patient with an acute rupture or perforation of an ulcer and ask him to meet you promptly at the hospital for consultation. You know that ulcers of the stomach or duodenum (intestine) are unusually common In patients suffering from emphysema and are even more likely when cortisone or similar medicine are used. The hard, rigid abdomen is another clue to the diagnosis. In the hospital, the surgeon arranges to have an X-ray film of the patient's abdomen while he is in an upright position to see whether there is any air under the diaphragm. The presence of such air is practically a sure sign that there has been a perforation because it means that gas is leaking out of the bowel and this can only happen if the bowel is punctured or perforated. The X-ray shows there is air and the surgeon immediately arranges to have the operating room ready and blood transfusions available. Extra cortisone is ordered because patients who have taken cortisone may go into shock during the operation or later if cortisone is abruptly stopped. Diagnosis Correct At operation the surgeon finds a perforation of the duodenum exactly as suspected. Quickly, the perforation is sutured and the hole in the intestines closed so as to prevent further escape of gas and fluid. A stomach tube is inserted and attached to a suction device to keep the stomach empty. Over the next three days, the patient is fed intravenously while you make sure that the patient gets his oxygen and other medicines. As the days go by, the stomach tube is removed, the patient is continued on antibiotics and soon he is allowed to take small quantities of liquids by mouth. In another 12 days, he is discharged from the hospital fully recovered. He must remain on a strict diet and his cortisone will have to be reduced or restricted from now on. © I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc. Artificial Respiration Revives a Parakeet By SCIENCE SERVICE CHICAGO — Artificial respiration has proved its value once again—it even works on parakeets. Dr. Sidney J. Michael, small- animal veterinarian of Erie, Pa., reports that a 10-year-old, green parakeet was brought to his office for removal of a tumor on the right wing tip. The doctor had just turned to pick up some instruments after giving a local anesthetic when his assistant cried, "The bird is dead!" Dr. Michael reports, "I took the bird in my hand and, to all appearances, it was completely lifeless. I lifted the bird to my ear and listened and I could hear its heart beat; the pulse was relatively full and normal. "Without much hope of reviving the bird, I performed manual artificial respiration with my index finger and thumb. Each exertion of pressure at the rate of about twice a second, caused the bird to emit a more or less natural squeak." The doctor then rigged up • parakeet-sized oxygen tank, and after about five to ten minutes of thl» combined treatment, "I ton ant toot take hold of my finger." In a few minutes the parakeet-patient blinked an eye, kicked his feet, wiggled his toes and shook his head. With a little more oxygen he regained consciousness, but was still a bit wobbly. No further treatment was given. The next morning, Dr. Michael reports here in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (July 15), the bird was as chipper as if nothing had happened. Mind Your Manners "Thank you, I'm not Interested," spoken in a voice of firm assurance, will turn aside almost any unwanted sales proposition or solicitation. There's no need to be rude. In introducing your date to a friend older than yourselves, say: "Mr. Smith, this is Jimmy Brown," not "Jimmy, this is Mr. Smith." If months go by and you don't receive a thank-you not* from a bride, it is quite all right to inquire If the present was received. Uawaala* Hair Bemoval Forever •y BlMttralysltI fiMcireiyaU ttwleiy of Anertaa PAULINE'S My iMUtifyi MM ItM maw - Dtal NO MIU HAMMOND ORQANf OUtt Expert Gives LaundryAdvice Proper laundry care helps keep minimum-care menswear looking Its best. Marjorie Sohn, University of Illinois extension clothing specialist, recommends washing these garments frequently before the soil can grind into the fabric and cause permanent stains. You can wash these garments by hand or in an automatic washer. But whichever method you choose, use the water temperature recommended for the fiber present in the greatest amount. For example, if the suit has 65 per cent Dacron and 35 per cent cotton, choose the water temperature suitable for Dacron. This rule of thumb also applies for choosing pressing temperature. No matter how you launder, the stains from wear should be pre-loosened. A paste of detergent and a few drops of water is one effective pre-treatment. Unfortunately, synthetics attract oily soil, and just ordinary washing alone won't budge it. Use any suitable dete'rgent in hot or warm water. A liquid detergent works, best in cooler water. Use discretion when washing these garments with other items. It's wise to separate articles as to color and degree of soil. And since crowding causes wrinkles, it's best to wash minimum-care suits separately. Do not wring wet garments, since wringing also encourages wrinkles. To dry minimum-care articles, either shape them on a non-rusting hanger and allow them to dry or place them in the automatic dryer set on "low." Garments will look their best if not overdried in the dryer. Place on hangers immediately after drying. Touch up dry garments when necessary, using a steam iron or regular iron. Turkey Can Be Barbecued it you like turkey in the summer but you don't want to heat up the kitchen, try barbecuing it on the outdoor grill. According to a University of Illinois extension poultry specialist, 4 to 8-pound turkeys are ideal for barbecuing. You can thread a whole bird on the spit if you desire, or place halves or quarters on the grill over the coals. For the most flavorful turkey, allow plenty of time for the heat to penetrate thoroughly. Cook until the leg and wing move easily in the sockets. To insure soft, tender flesh, baste with butter or hurberue sauce each time you turn the turkey. Double Chin? WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, I960 —— Praise Set* Note for \ Nuptial Btt»* ft* RUTH tSDJUStt A dissatisfied wife to t ta* ury few men can afford. Oentlemtn, tt costs you wfwn you neglect to tell your wife what a fine .fob she ii doing as a homemaker. If she doesn't get any appreciation from you, she'll try to get it from other women by competing with them In a never-ending struggle to fill her house with finer things than her friends have. If she feels negelected and unloved she will consciously or unconsciously try to make you as miserable as she is and you will find little peace at home. If you have stopped complimenting her on her looks, ihe will need more expensive clothes, more sessions at a beauty salon, more beauty aids of every kind to reassure herself that she is still an attractive woman. If you shut her completely out of your world of work ihe will fill the emptiness with useless, time-consuming social activities instead of working at the job of being your partner. If you are too difficult to please, she will grow weary of trying and your happiness and well-being will become less and less important to her. If you refuse to talk things over with her, she will start confiding in outsiders and you will no longer present a united front to the world. In the end a husband always pays for letting his wife become dissatisfied. And he pays in many, many ways—in money, in loss of self-esteem, In contentment. Since this is so, it Is stupid of any husband to be so stingy with his praise, his compliments, and his attention that his wife feels negelected and dissatisfied with her place in life.—(NEA). Electricity Is Boon To Beauty By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Last evening, the light switch in my bathroom went dead. Before the building superintendent arrived to repair it, I set a silver candlestick on the edge of the tub and pondered what living must have been like before electricity came along. As I rinsed out nylon stockings amidst the flickering shadows, it seemed to me that an age which seems romantic in retrospect couldn't have been as redolent in romance as it was in eyestrain. True, candlelight was softer and therefore more flattering to a woman. But the effort of getting on the crude make-up of the 18th century, to say nothing of doing one's hair, must have been exhausting. Of course, neither make-up nor hairdos were really pretty by modern standards but they did take time. Eighteenth-century belles didn't differ from modern women in that they wanted to look their best. And something tells me that they would gladly have handed over their very best wigs, patch boxes and rouge for a single room lighted by dear, white electricity.
