DEAR ANN: I have read your column for almost eight years and have learned a lot from it. Because of you I no longer feel guilty about refusing to answer the doorbell when the neighborhood pest shows up at 9:30 a.m. with her 3-year-old — full of conversation which used to last through lunch. Now I have another problem. Does a person have the 'right NOT to answer the telephone if she doesn't feel like talking or if it is inconvenient? A certain relative who is __^_— a notorious yak- Ann Landers. ker telephon es me at approximately the same time every morning. She has tied me up for as long as 45 minutes with petty gossip and foolish chatter. I decided to just let the phone ring. I think she is wise. Am I wrong to do this?—WILL POWER DEAR WILL: The person who puts in the call does so at HER convenience. Just because she is willing, able and ready to gab is no sign you have to be on deck to listen. If you don't feel like talking — or listening — just let the bloomin' thing ring. * * * * DEAR ANN: Our daughter will be 14 late this summer and we do not allow her to date. Both my husband and I are avid readers of your column and wo are standing firm on this dating business until Margo gets to high school, which is what you recommend. The problem is this: Margo has numerous friends, both boys and girls. She receives a good many telephone calls and both boys and girls seem to be visiting here frequently. Shall we discourage the boys from calling or coming to the house? My husband or I are always present so the children are well chaperoned. We don't want to be too strict with our dauhgter but we don't want to go to the other extreme either. Where is the sensible middle ground? Thank you.—PONCA CITY DEAR PONCA: You are wise to seek the middle ground and I beleve it's where you are at the moment. Keep saying no to dating until Margo is in high school, but permit boys to telephone and come to the house to visit. She won't feel deprived, yet she won't be dating. My hat is off to you for having sense enough to insist on remaining in the driver's seat. These days too many parents are collapsable. * * * * DEAR ANN: My Problem is not one on which the world will rise or fall but it has caused me endless consternation and I need help. About four months ago I began to date a very nice man who operates a small business near my place of employment. He invited me out and I accepted. He brought along a corsage of green baby orchids. My dress was electric blue. I wore the flowers although electric blue and green are hideous together, as you can imagine. Two weeks later it happened again. He brought along a corsage of red roses. My dress was a flaming tangerine. The color combination couldn't have been more nauseating. Last week his lodge had Its summer formal. This time he went all out — a huge purple orchid. My gown was ming dynasty red. I couldn't bear to put that purple flower on my red gown. So I pinned it to my evening bag. I'm afraid he was hurt. Do you have any advice for me? This man seems to have a rare talent for selecting flowers of exactly the wrong color.—ERNA DEAR ERNA: Don't discourage his tender sentiments. Just let him know that your favorite flowers are white — roses, gardenias orchids, peonies, lillies, mums. Any. thing white. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. © 1963, Publishers Newspaper French bread that's to be heated doesn't always have to have garlic-flavored butter spread between the cuts.
