Hertfs How Family Ann Landers Male Fan Is Bitterly Disappointed t)KAK ANN: I was deeply disappointed in your advice to the wife who signed herself "Frantic and Disappointed." She griped because her husband had fallen into the habit >-of coming home for lunch five times a week— "with a come- hither look in his eye." The woman insisted that she loves her husband very much, __ but she corn- Ann Landers, plained that 12:30 p.m. is no time for romance when three kids are home for lunch, a laundress is in the basement, . the doorbell is ringing and she is trying to get to a 2 p.m. church guild meeting. I thought for sure you'd clobber the selfish wench for not doing her duty. Instead you advised her to tell her husband she married him for better or for worse — "but not for lunch." Why do you so freely buy the notion that a husband should be looked upon with scorn and contempt just because he is healthy and normal? An overwhelming majority of American wives are so thoroughly involved with their tea parties, card playing, and country club Martini drinking that they are too darned pooped to satisfy the basic emotional needs of their husbands. No wonder the divorce rate is zooming. A smart wife should congratulate herself for being desirable and needed. She should be thrilled that her husband wants to come home for lunch. You failed every red-blooded male in your audience when you gave that lousy answer. —BITTERLY DISAPPOINTED DEAR BITTERI,Y: Apparently I disappointed a substantial number of red-blooded American females, too. Dozens of wives wrote to say they'd be thrilled if their husbands came home for lunch. One woman wrote, "I wish my old man would appear for dinner. I never know -where he is from one day to the next." A reader in Chattanooga moaned, "Does the guy live in Tennessee? If he does please send him to my house for lunch. I'm a good cook and I'd be happy to see him." I'm sorry I have let so many of you down, but the advice still stands. As for you, "Bitterly Disappointed," show me one tea-partying, card-playing, Martini- swinging wife and I'll show you 500 floor-scrubbing, shirt-ironing, diaper-folding women who are busy from dawn till dusk trying to take care of their families. It is absurd and animalistic to suggest that a wife should be on 24-hour call like an inhalator squad— ready for romance at the drop of a hint. Married love is not a "duty" nor is it an accommodation. If the relationship is meaningful, it's a mutually rewarding and fulfilling experience. Perhaps there would be fewer divorces if more men were perceptive enough to consider a woman's emotional needs and attached as much importance to those needs as they attach to their own physical and emotional drives. * * * * DKAR ANN: Well, here it is July and my husband I are stone broke. Why? Because June is the month we get knocked over the head with wedding announcements, high school and college graduation announcements, Bar Mitzvahs and what have you. July is the month we have to pay for all the gifts we bought in June. Why do people send announcements to friends and relatives who live thousands of miles away? Yes, we know Suzy is getting married and Howard is graduating. But we can't be there, so why don't they leave us alone? Please print this letter as a protest to this transparent racket which masquerades as a compliment. Thank you. —BUSTED DKAR BUSTED: This subject has been argued since the Year One. My personal opinion: It's a compliment to be invited— but not to be "announced to." * * * * Confidential to EAGER: Forget the ventriloquist act and develop your own personality. Trying to borrow a girl friend's personality for the evening will not work. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate x Gray and Sla ten Nuptials Read MRS.

A Lovelier You Air-Cooled Exercise By MARY SUE MILLER For figure-watchers, summer is a sensitive season. Hot weather induces laziness, the lazy seldom exercise, and lack of exercise causes fleshy accumulations. Consequently, if you wish to preserve or improve the figure you've got, you really cannot succumb to complete inactivity. But that does not mean that you have to work out like an athlete. You can hold the line and trim a bit, too, by performing a few muscle-toning routines. Those below are designed to overcome all the usual objections to exercise—it's too hot, too hard, too time-consuming. Yet they are extremely effective in strengthening the muscles. And the stronger muscles are, the better they are able to gird up fleshy or flabby tissue. To perform: 1. Stretch out on back (in bed if you like). Contract abdominal muscles- hard—for 10 slow counts. Relax and pull in on diaphragm for 10 counts. Next contract waist, with an accordion action. Repeat entire routine twice. Lastly, try to contract all midriff muscles simultaneously. The best way is to start with abdominal muscles and work up. 2. Stand erect with fingertips on shoulders out to sides; flex biceps until muscles quiver. 3. Standing with feet together, pull kneecaps up, twist legs outward, and tense inner leg muscles—hold for 10 counts. Relax and repeat twice. 4. Contract buttock muscles for 20 counts. Midriff Slimmors To solve the riddle of extra inches around your middle, send today for my leaf- let, "Midriff Slimmers." It contains quick, easy reducing exercises for slimming diaphragm, waist and abdomen. Write Mary Sue Miller in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate College Notes Miss Nancy Judine RobeyT"46 Forest Dr., East Alton, will enter the University of Illinois as a freshman student this fall.

But now that we live out there, we have our doubts, what with fence-to-fence lawn, fancy furniture, exotic plants, artistic lighting, barbecue equipment that is an engineering production. Some homes have art on the terrace walls. Everything is getting too precious. A wonderful stage has been set. But the family wants to know: when does the play begin. Nobody enjoys the rules and regulations. Dad is accused of running the lawn mower into the new patio furniture, and nicking it. The kids are told to take off their shoes when they walk on the grass. There is barbecue grease on the patio walk, charcoal ashes on the deck, and shame on the thoughtless person who put his feet on the new chaise lounge cushions. C'mon now, let's enjoy the summer. Trees are for little boys to climb. And if you can't play baseball in your own backyard, well, now! But Mom worries about those glass hurricane lamps, clay strawberry barrels and her prized dahlias. The Junior set has been fast losing ground anyway to parents' projects. How can we have slides and swings when we need a pretty lawn for croquet, asks Mom, who has just become an expert on crab grass removal. If the man of the house says he'll be 'dandelioned' before he'll lie in the broiling sun and clip the grass around the trees Third & State Srs. Oial HO 5-7531 with manicure scissors, he's got a point. Visitors will never notice the difference, unless they're midgets. The trouble with the new fancy outdoor diggin's is not so much that there is no dig- gin' allowed, but rather that the family just doesn't dig the rules. Everybody must be prepared to take his post when a dark cloud appears. Perish the thought, but happens — everything must be moved into the cellar until the shower is over. How many times can one do this with vigor during a rainy spell? Let's get a new perspective on our outdoor living, and live it up. If the cushions aren't, waterproof, and dirtproofed, we're sorry, Mom. And if your outdoor furniture can't take it, for shame, you're not a good s h o p p e r. Breakable gear doesn't belong outdoors with the elements. And if you insist on taking a facsimile of the kitchen stove inito the yard, you had better make a slipcover for it, or suffer the consequences. We don't mind tiptoeing through the tulips that you've placed in the entrance path, and putting raincoats over the boxwood when it storms, but couldn't we please use the swimming pool if we promise not to get the water too dirty? The Thorntons Mr. and Mrs. Orville Thornton, 904 Danforth St., and their daughter and son, Donna and Ronald, have returned from a two'-week vacation at Bear Paw Lodge, Outing, Minn. Following his 30-day leave, Ronald will return to Germany where he is serving with the Army in Mannheim. Snacks Can Aid Diet of Adolescents CARBONDALE, 111.—Snacks— the bane ol mother's existence- have received at least a partial whitewashing by a former Southern Illinois University- nutritionist. In a study of teen-agers' diets, conducted in the spring of 1956, 1957 and 1958, Dr. Marion A. Wharton of the College of Home Economics, University of Rhode Island, found snacks slightly improved the adolescent diet except for vitamiin A and ascorbic acid. Dr. Wharlon, formerly chairman of the food and nutrition department at SIU's School of Home. Economics, reporled In a research paper published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Her samples totaled 421 students—one group from a high school in a university town, another in an industrial and coal mining town where a large percentage of the population are of southern European stock and another from a high school attended largely by Negro students. She reported the Negro students ate a more nutritious diet in a number of respects than the white students. "The nutritive intake of the Negro group was significantly better than for the whites for calories, iron, vitamin A, thiamine and niacin," she said. "The Negroes consumed 35 to 38 per cent of their calories as fat and the white students 40 to 48 per cent. "The girls ate more snacks than the boys," she said. |w««««is««H;«i£ig!5«i6te<2««stste«e«i«ig««««HE«ta«^ JOIN NOW. /cuu< FASHIONS Christmas Clu b!!
