GRAVEHANN EVERY TUESDAY IS CHILDREN'S DAY IN OUR STUDIO The Family Ann Landers It Wasn't Love, It Was Flu DEAR ANN: Maybe you will remember me. I wrote to you three weeks ago and signed my letter "Randy." I just wanted to tell you how things turned out. Remember how I thought for sure it was love? I wanted to give Dottie my class ring and my I. D. •braclet. I even wanted to buy 't her a $5 box of candy. I was like crazy, Ann. * ; My head felt light as a feather. When I Ann Landers, looked at Dottie I got weak in the knees and almost fainted. I perspired until my shirt was soaked through. My appetite was shot and I couldn't even look at food. Mom told me I looked terrible and she called a doctor. Well, it wasn't love after all. It was the flu. I'm feeling fine now and I'm dating Dottie but I'm going with other girls, too. I just thought you might like to know I'm flying right. And thanks for your advice to simmer down and relax. I think it speeded up my recovery.—BACK TO NORMAL DEAR NORMAL: I'm glad to know you are enjoying the best of health and that your head is now on straight. An awful lot passes for love these days that isn't love at all. And it isn't the flu either. It's the chemistry of youth, plus confusion. • * * * DEAR ANN: I have always believed in tipping—whether I go to a coffee counter or to a fancy restaurant. It's a habit that comes as naturally as paying the check. My problem is a sticky one because it involves a young man I'm very fond of. He never leaves a tip. This young man is not hard up for money. He's just thoughtless. I've been on the verge of mentioning it many times but I'm afraid of hurting his feelings. We often go back to the same places and I am embarrassed because I'm sure the waiters and waitresses have his number. What should I do? STILL WATERS DEAR STILL WATERS: Tipping is part of our system— whether we are for it or against it. And because it's a built-in custom, some people are totally Ever stir a couple of tablespoons of cinnamon candies (the little ned variety) into 2 cups of hot smooth applesauce? Pretty pink color and spicy flavor! Serve with pork chops, roast pork or ham. dependent on tips. Tell the young man he should leave the waiter or waitress about 15 per cent of the check. If he's a decent guy he will appreciate your interest. * * * * DEAR. ANN: I could have hugged you when you told that woman to get off the floor and stop being a doormat. My minister gave me the same advice 10 years ago and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I had five small children and was afraid to speak up to my husband for fear he would leave me. I felt like an unpaid servant. He'd finish dinner and run to his mother's house every night to play cards and drink beer with his no-good brothers. He said the kids made him nervous and he had to get out of the house. After crying my eyes out for months I decided to talk to my clergyman. He said, "What if your husband died. You'd have to manage without him, wouldn't you? Tell him to grow up and act like a man or go to his mother's and stay there." Well, I told him, Ann, just like the minister suggested and he almost fell off the chair. Believe me he's been a different person ever since. Now he treats me with consideration and respect. The woman who allows herself to be kicked around by her husband deserves it. — FROM DOORMAT TO PEDESTAL DEAR PEDESTAL: Congratulations on the transition. I am a firm believer in getting off the floor if you don't like being kicked around. It's always a joy to hear from someone who woke up and smelled the coffee. Thanks for writing. • • • * • Confidential to NUTS TO CRAZY TAXES: People are usually down on things they aren't up on. This is not a political column, but what you don't know about that subject would fill a library. * * * • Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.
