WILSHIRE CARD & GIFT SHOP lilre Village Shopping Center MISS WILLIAMS MISS COPELAND MISS SNYDERS Ann Landers All That's Left Is Russian Roulette DEAR ANN: The letter signed "Second Time Around," from the man who believes all first wives should be shot at 40 was quite a revelation. You see, I am a first wife and my 40th birthday comes up in October. My husband is also having a sizzling affair with a woman about 20 years his junior, and I've been w r a c ki n g my brain trying to figure out what to do about it. Ann Landers. NOW the answer is clear. I am supposed to hand my husband a gun and tell him to shoot me. After all, what am I good for? I've already raised his four children, my figure isn't what it used to be and I must put on glasses to read the telephone book. I'm no longer able to help him in his business because he sold it last year—for a fantastic figure, I might add. Now he plays golf, takes trips, and spends his afternoons shopping with his girl friend. I am not much of a golfer and I can't travel with him because she travels with him. And as you know—three is a crowd. Thank you for printing the man's letter, Ann. It provided me with just the right answer. Russian, roulette, anyone? —FIRST WIFE DEAR FIRST WDJE: Thank you for an interesting letter. I think you will find the one that follows a revelation, too. * * * * DEAR ANN: I hope "Second Time Around" reads this. It may give him a clue as to what might be in store for him. I am not very bright, but this is one subject I know well because I was one of those stupid fools who married a man old enough to be my father. Now I am paying for it—with interest. Every young chicken who marries an older man will take an oath that she did not break up his marriage—she knows it was on the rocks when she came along. Not me. I deliberately broke up this man's home and I admit it. I will tell you what I have harvested after 10 years, and any girl who is flirting with the notion of doing as I did can expect just about the same. The bloom is off the rose after three months. Then the old boy gets tired and wants to put on his bifocals and read the p'aper or watch TV every night. The romance factory is shut-down. Forget about it. He becomes insanely jealous of any man my age and wants constant reassurance that I am not cheating on him. The Spanish Inquisition was a Sunday schpol picnic compared with what I go through about three times a week. I can't have groceries, cleaning, newspapers, milk or packages delivered because he doesn't want "men" around here during the day. Charming, isn't it? All our social friends are his friends—you can almost smell the embalming fluid. The people in my age group are bored stiff with his company and have stopped asking us over. I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the idea by this time.

I received many pros and cons but yours (in terms of your viewpoint) was among the most vivid and articulate. * * *' * DEAR ANN: The. letter from "Honor Bright" was particularly amusing because I, too, had a frierid who used to tell me all sorts of dirt but she'd always start with "Promise you won't whisper this to a soul." 1 One day I told her: "I have the biggest mouth in town. Please don't tell me anything you don't want repeated." She was dumbfounded, and from that day to this she has never asked me not to repeat anything—and she tells me just as much as she always did. -BIG MOUTH DEAR BIO MOUTH: Thanks for your proof that nothing disarms like the truth. © 1963, Flqld Enterprises, Inc. Polly's Pointers 3-Sleeved Shirt Editor's Note: Mrs. James Kamp of Godfrey has won a Polly Dollar for her contribution which appears In today's column. By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY — When the weather is hot, my husband likes to rest his elbow on the window frame as he .drives the car. He always got sunburned, because he wore short sleeves, until we figured out a way to take care of that little nuisance. I made a regular man's shirt sleeve (from some leftover material) and put elastic at the top of the sleeve to keep it from slipping down. We keep this in the car pocket so when we go for a ride, he has this protective sleeve handy to slep. over his left arm.—MRS. W.R. GIRLS—I think the sleeve from an old shirt would work just as well and would save the trouble of making a new one.—POLLY * * * * DEAR POLLY—When giving a party we all know, from a previous hint, that a bowl of vinegar will do wonders to remove smoke from the air. Since this always looks so obvious, I decided to conceal it by putting artificial flowers in the bowl of vinegar.' A water lily floating in a brandy sniffer of white vinegar looks very pretty. For bathroom curtains, I use flowered or checked bath towels with fringed ends. I sew wide cotton tape to run the rod through and then there is a pretty fringed top and bottom. When you tire of them, they can still be used as towels.— MRS. J. K. * » * * DEAR POLLY — When your pre-schooler wants to cut pictures out of old magazines or follow other paths of amusement where little scraps are apt to get scattered all over the floor, put him and all the things he needs into a large cardboard carton and there will be no picking up to do afterwards—MRS. R. B. GIRLS—And be sure the child uses blunt scissors made for children's use.—POLLY * * * * DEAR POLLY—Take a small glass jar, put a little furniture polish in it and turn 1 it around, with the cap on, so all sides of the jar will be coated with the furniture polish. Put dust cloths in the jars and when you're ready to use them, the polish will be evenly distributed. Keep jar tightly capped at all times.—MRS. W. 0.
