So when she opened an Auckland newspaper last fall she knew from long experience what she had to do. Here was the story of 12 men who survived 101 days after- shipwreck without food or water on the Minerva Reef, kept alive as much as anything by the heroic Capt. David Fifita and his daily prayer meetings for the castaways. Mother's Helper fcy Heimann tr Pearian DOES YOUR BABY continually •drop (or throw) his teething ring on the floor? And then does he make loud complaining noises until it's restored to him? Tie it to his high chair with a short length of dental floss. Floss it strong, and won't get soggy If some of it gets chewed along with the iecther. • IVM, Ntw York Hirald Trlbuni. In*. This was tho kind of courageous survival that stirs public imagination—and sends hopeful prickles up the spine of any publisher worth his hardcover bindings. Obviously, the thing to do was to get publication rights. As Mrs. Faigan related it here on her way to the American Booksellers Association convention in Washington next week, she flew immediately to Fiji. That's where the survivors were hospitalized. There British-born Mrs. Faigan pulled one of the year's memorable coups. The resulting book, "Minerva Reef," by writer Olaf Ruben, will appear in New Zealand in late summer bearing the imprint of Mrs. Faigan's publishing house. It will be published here next year. "It's a fantastic story," she says. "They had one match with which they lit a fire to distill sea watf?r for drinking, and thoir lives depended on keeping the •fire burning for Ihe next three months. "They managed to catch a few fish, their only food. Five died. But I honestly believe the other 12 lived because the captain, a man of great faith, got them together every day for prayers." Mrs. Faigan started her publishing house as a hobby 16 years ago and in time her husband joined her in it. Now that she's a widow, she's thinking of spending part of her time in this country.. "This is my first trip to the United States, and it's so wonderful I wonder why I waited so long." 98 W. Elm St.; and Mr. and Mrs. Ray Luken and children, Gail and Jeffrey of Northmoor Place, Godfrey.

Ann Landers A Life of Vain Regrets DEAR ANN: Why can't we live our lives backwards? I've been married 27 years to the most wonderful wife in the world, but I didn't appreciate her until now— when it may be too late. Tomorrow I go to the hospital for s u r g e r y— : lung cancer. I - thought I was in• destructible but ;. I realize now how frail is man Ann Zanders, and how few are his days. I have spent most of my adult life in the real estate business and I've done my share of cheating. I used to rationalize my affairs—saying "Why not? What have I got to lose?" I even told myself my wife was cool to me, when I knew she had every right to be. I drank a lot and stayed away from home for days at a time. I know now the only genuine happiness I ever had was with her. I'd give anything to make up to that dear woman the anguish and heartache I've caused her. If God spares me I will spend the rest of my life being a good husband. Before I go into surgery I shall tell my wife about this letter so she can watch the paper for it. It is something I feel compelled to do. Please, Ann, print this.—W.E.J. DEAR W.E.J.: Here is-your. letter. My prayers are with you. * * * * DEAR ANN: I have been liv- ing with Al for eight months. He had one bad marriage and doesn't want to risk a second one. He refuses to marry me unless he is sure we can get along together. We never quarrel and I am sure he loves me, as I love him. But I hate living this way. I want to be his wife and not his mistress. On top of all this I have a 9- year-old daughter by a previous marriage. The child is living with her grandmother and I want her here with us. Al likes her very much and is perfectly willing, but I'm afraid to uproot her unless I can offer the security of a home protected by marri&ge. Al has a temper and I don't want to rile him. Shall I insist on marriage, or shall I bring my daughter into the house and hope for the best? —AL'S MISTRESS DEAR MISGUIDED FOOL: Don't bring your child into a setup which you know is immoral. She is far better off with her grandmother. As for you, I urge you to move out and stay out until you can sign your next letter "APs Wife." He'll never marry you if you settle for the present arrangement. Why should he? * + * • DEAR ANN: Are my parents living in the 18th Century? I am 16 and Otis is 18. We have been going together for six months. When Otis comes to our home for an evening we' must sit and visit with my parents or play cards with them.

Last week I was on the telephone with Otis for 15 minutes. My mother made a new rule— a five minute phone limit, and she sets the egg-timer. Last night the egg-timer went off and Otis heard it. Now I think he is mad at me. If I lose him I'll be awfully unhappy with my mother. I need your help.—YVONNE DEAR YVONNE: Teen-agers should not be expected to spend evenings playing cards with parents. I can't imagine anything more boring. And the egg-timer routine is an insult. I don't think a 15-minute phone conversation is out of .line— but no longer, please. * « * * Confidential to OUT OF GAS: This is the least of your problems, Jack.
