Ann Landers Center of Attraction Breeds Obnoxious Little Characters DEAR ANN: My brother and his wife have an only child who is 10 years ongoing on 18—if you know what I mean. They take the girl everywhere, claiming she is very mature and fits in with adults b e a u ti- fully. She is mature for her age, Ann, but she is still a 10- year-old child. Some of their friends have Ann Landers, simply stopped inviting them over because they insist on bringing the girl. It is not so easy for a relative, however. Last week we had a dinner party. Since it was on a school night we felt certain they'd leave the youngster at home, but they did not. The evening was ruined by the child's presence. Her mother insisted she give several readings and the guests were bored stiff. After they left we decided this was the last straw. Shall we not invite them in the future and risk a breach in the family? Or shall we tell them they cannot bring the girl to our adult parties? —ENOUGH IS ENOUGH DEAR ENOUGH: Tell them— which is what you should have done ages ago. Perhaps these parents don't realize that adults resent the intrusion of a 10-year-old. Moreover it's not good for the child. These overly mature kids can turn out to. be obnoxious little character's if they've been the center of attraction too often and too long. * * * * DEAR ANN: As a Swiss I am compelled to comment on the letter written by a compatriot of mine. I cannot decide whether she is ignorant of the common usage of the English lan- guage or if she truly believes that a woman who does manual work cannot be classified as a lady. The latter assumption would seem unlikely from an individual whose country prides itself on being the cradle of Europe's oldest democracy. I, as a loyal Swiss, feel that such statements reflect poorly on all of us. It is too bad this ambassador of ill-will does not keep herself hidden in the mountains where she can do no harm.—HEIDI DEAR HEIDI: Many Swiss wrote to complain about the poor impression "Swiss Mrs." had projected. No group should be judged by the behavior of one individual. And I agree emphatically that we should not judge the Swiss by this one. * * * * REAR ANN: Our daughter was married two years ago to a nice boy. It took us a year to pay off the debts from her wedding. We also helped furnish their apartment. Since they were both working and going to college they ate most of their meals with us. They had a darling baby girl a year later and again we helped all we could. Six months ago our son- in-law was offered a good position in his home town so they moved. Last week I went to visit them and it was wonderful—until the boy's mother opened her mouth. The first moment she and I A Lovelier You were alone she shouted, "How can you call yourself a mother when you don't do one thing for your daughter? She came to this town practically naked and barefoot. We pay the rent, buy the groceries and clothe the baby. You have much more money than we do yet you don't do anything for them." I left without saying a word. I've never been so hurt. Should I write and explain that we aren't mirllionaires and that we do all we can? I am sick over this.—S.J. . DEAR S.J.: Don't write—and don't get into a contest with that dingbat to see who can do more for the children. If your son-in-law has a good position he should be paying his own rent, buying his own groceries and clothing his own child. * * * * Planning a wedding? Leave nothing to chance.

By MAHY SDK M1LLRK A lovely mother writes: My teon daughter has uneven shoulders — out' is higher than the other. We became aware of the condition when we recently purchased her first off-shoulder formal. What could cause the problem and correct it? The Answer: Sometimes children are born with uneven shoulders. But the imbalance becomes apparent long before teenhood. When it develops during adolescence, the cause usually can be found in poor postural habits and the stress set up by them on the shoulder muscles. For example, if while doing desk work a girl makes a practice of leaning on one arm, the shoulder above will begin either to drag down from strain or to push up against it. Eventually the shoulders are thrown off balance. The same result is fostered by many habits — always carrying a load of schoolbooks in the same arm or standing with all the weight on the same foot. The first step to correction is to find the damaging habit and put a stop to it. The next move is learning to carry the shoulders in a level position at all times. This may be difficult ill first, for you must consciously raise the low shoulder and rt'lax the high one. The project is aided by slow- ly rotating the shoulders, from front to back, several times daily. But like so many other figure problems, this one can be solved only by keeping everlastingly at it.

Seams to Me Renewing Old Desk Set Is a Simple Project By PATRICIA SCOTT Here's a simple project for a rainy summer day—do over an old desk pad, pencil holder and notebook. You will need about one yard of fabric, some non-woven interfacing and iron- on interfacing. The iron-on interfacing gives sturdy backing and eliminates hemming edges. Cut pieces for the cover fabric larger than necessary so they can be trimmed after the interfacing has been fused to it. Loose Leaf Notebook, (Figure A): Open the book with the cover down on a piece of non- woven interfacing. Trace around the book. Add 2 inches to each end for pockets. Cut interfacing. Cut cover fabric using interfacing as pattern, but making it : /2 inch larger all around for seam allowance. Hem the two short ends, using interfacing edge as guide line. To form pockets, fold two ends, 2 inches with cover fabric sides together. Stitch folded" side edges along edge of interfacing. Trim seams, turn to right side and press. Hem remaining edges as you did the ends. Slip ends of notebook into pockets of cover and close. Blotter Pad (Figure B): Measure width and length of pad. Then, double the width measurement. Cut two pieces of iron-on interfacing using these measurements. Apply interfacing to wrong side of cover fabric. Be sure to follow directions for applying the interfacing. Trim cover fabric, leaving a seam allowance of l /z inch along top and bottom edges. Trim side edges so cover and interfacing edges are even. Fold lengthwise (top and bottom edges meeting), right sides together. Stitch top and bottom edges together along interfacing edge. Turn to right side. Slip ends over blotter pad and see that the cover fits snugly. Remove cover. Put glue on underside of pad along the edges, Slip cover on again and press pad down so it sticks securely to cover. Pencil Holder (Figure C): Mark shape of holder on iron- on interfacing and cut out. Use this as a pattern for cover fabric. Seam allowance is not necessary since the ends should meet perfectly when applied to holder. Apply interfacing to wrong side of cover fabric. Trim edges of fabric even with interfacing. Cover wrong side (the interfacing side) with glue and apply to pencil holder. © 1003. Publishers Newspaper Syndicate By RICHARD C. BAYER FLAT ROCK, N.C. AP - Mrs. Carl Sandburg, whose memory matches her wit, recalled that when she married her poet husband 55 years ago Saturday they "weren't so darn sure it was going to last." "We entered into the marriage 'With the agreement if either of us wanted to quit, the other would say, 'all right,' she added. "Now we're waiting for our 75th anniversary. That will really be something." For more than a half a century Lilian Paula Sandburg has remained quietly in the wings while her husband-poet, historian, novelist, Lincoln biographer and twice a Pulitzer Prize winner—played a leading role on the American literary stage. Visitors to Connemara, the Sandburg farm here, are met by a woman who looks every bit the part of the 80-year-old grandmother that she is. But when the conversation starts they find a woman with a bright and youthful outlook still possessed with the desire to exchange and express ideas. "Carl Sandburg was so independent he wouldn't have allowed any woman to make a mess out of him," she said. "I don't believe there's a woman behind every great man." Mrs. Sandburg was a school teacher in Princeton, 111., when in 1907 she met Sandburg, a Social-Democratic party organizer at party headquarters in Milwaukee. Letters and poems followed her back to Illinois. "Carl had all the makings of a good organizer. He was forthright and easy to talk with," she remembered. "But when he sent me a copy of his collection 'In Reckless Ecstacy,' I saw a different man. I thought he was just a little better than Whitman." In six months they were married. There was no ring and "obey" was omitted from the vows. After 55 years of married life, Mrs. Sandburg looked to the two geniuses she has known best, >her husband and her brother, Edward Steichen, the renowned photographer. "People often think artists are difficult to live with. Carl and my brother are the most reasonable people I've ever known," she said. CollegeNotes Mr. and Mrs Paul L.
