So I am writing to you. Why do 50-year-old people refer lo themselves as "middle- aged?" How many people live i be 100 any- ay? My own 'idea is that mid- 'dle age should ,be half of life 3x p e c I a n c y, ?' which puts it at about 35. My own par:l ents are' in Ihc 50 - year - old Ann Landers, group and they consider themselves middle- aged. Are they trying to kid themselves—or' what? Please let me know what you think about this. It's been bugging me for a long time. —SPEAKER OF THE TRUTH DEAR SPEAKER: When I was 17, I thought middle age was about 30. When I got to be 30 T shoved middle age up about 10 or 15 years—and I've been shoving it up ever since. Why all this preoccupation with age, Buster? I've said it before and I'll say it again. .. it's only a number, Baby. * * * + BEAR ANN: I have hunted everywhere for the newspaper that carried your column about an Il-m6nth pregnancy. Will you please tell me when and where this happened? My friend bet me 510 that no sucli item appeared. She claims all pregnancies are about the same length of time and that people get confused for all sorts of reasons. I know she is wrong because I was pregnant with my child for 11 Vz months. Please settle this for us. Thank you.—J and R * * * * DEAR J and R: There was nothing in my column recently about an 11-month pregnancy. What you are probably referring to is a letter from a woman who complained because her friend could never get any place on time. She repeated tlie town joke—that Adelle was an 11- month baby and lias been late ever since. The average full-term pregnancy is about 280 .days, which is approximately nine months. This can vary several days one way or the other. But medical science has never recorded an HVa month pregnancy. Maybe it just seemed that long, Honey. * * * * DEAR ANN: Our son Ron is going to marry a fine girl whom I will call Anna Marie. She was born and reared in another country and her parents speak Very little English. They are very foreign in their ways. Please don't take my head off and tell me I am a snob. Our son is lucky to get this girl. Anna Marie is not only beautiful, but also brilliant and talented. She has already secured a teaching position on the staff of a conservatory and will help put Ron through law school. The wedding will be held at a hall and the guests will he requested to bring money instead of gifts. This will appear on the invitation. I was mortified when I heard it, but apparently it is the custom in Europe. . My husband says to keep my nose out of it and let them do whatever they want. I'm afraid when our family and friends get the invitations they will be shocked. Please tell me what lo do.—M.M.M. 'DEAR M.M.M.: Take your husband's advice. Since you will provide the bride's mother with your guest list you'll be able to phone or drop each of .your guesls a line explaining the European custom. Let them know there is nothing obligatory about it. » * # * Confidential to Used, Abused and Accused: Your letter was one of the most vitriolic attacks I've ever read.

Noble, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard C. Noble, also of Bunker Hill. Miss Myers, a graduate of Mental Stress May Trigger \ Diabetes CHIC A.G 0 —Psychological stress may trigger the onset of diabetes in persons predisposed to tlie disease, three Los Angeles psychiatrists said today. A study of 25 diabetics revealed that 20 had suffered a personal loss of some kind before the disease was discovered, Drs. Paul F. Slawson, William R. Flynn and Edward J. Kollar reported in the current (July 20) Journal of the American Medical Association. Although speculation about a relationship between diabetes and emotional disturbance dates back to the \7th century, the researchers said their study was conducted to see how often newly diagnosed diabetics had suffered recent losses. The patients were 20 men and 5 women ranging from. J8 to 70 years of age who took a standard personality test and were interviewed within six months after symptoms appeared, the authors'said. Of the 25, 14 gave a history of a definite loss recognized as such by the patient aiid 6 gave evidence of a loss that could be reasonably inferred although not acknowledged by the patient, they said. The losses consisted of : such occurrences as death of, or separation from, a spouse, child, parent, or pet, or a Asocial, occupational or financial setback, the researchers said. "Although these losses occurred 1 to 48 months prior to the onset of diabetes, the effects of most losses extended into the life situation current at the time of psychiatric evaluation," they said. In addition,* .they said, 14 patients were considered to be living in an emotionally deprived environment, 10 • gave evidence suggestive of unresolved grief and 7 were considered depressed. During the course of study, the authors said they saw the disease which had been well controlled with a certain dosage of insulin go out of control when the patient suffered a personal loss. "One of the most striking cases was a policeman with a four-year history of well-controlled diabetes," " they said. "When lie was told that his 15- year-old daughter had leukemia he went out of control. Further . . . studies showed that his daughter did not have leukemia. His response to this | good news was'prompt and dramatic with a return to Ills former insulin requirements." In conclusion, the researchers said; "We do not suggest that psychological stress is a necessary etlological factor in SUN if Necessities Lotions— Upon Sundayi ZiKE !KE Pharmacy '» Airline Or*i R> H« MISS MYERS Bunker 'Hill High School, is a student at Alton Memorial Hospital School of Nursing.

All rose shoots freeze hatk some in winter, and should be cut back when frost damage can be determined in spring. Also tie shoots lo long slake or something over winter to prevent wind damage. * * * * Dear Mr. Clausen: 1 will appreciate it if you tcli me why a morning glory vine did not bloom. I have a rock wall in my back yard and thought morning glorys would make a pretty background. The vines are healthy and I've never known them not to bloom.—Mrs. K. Answer: If soil is very rich it will delay blooming. Try this on several shoots. Take a sharp knife and make several cuts % inch through the stem in several places. Or take, a spade and cut the roots deep in several places. Also you could have a "moon vine" which blooms Jater in the season than the morning glory. * « 4 « Dear Mr. Clausen: I am asking for information about a rubber plant. Received one about 18 inches tall Dec. 25, 1961, which is now four feet tall. At first it had lost: four large lower leaves until I got it adjusted to the right temperature. This week and last, v it lost another two lower leaves. Would you tell me what causes this after almost two years? Would keeping it too moist cause this? It is a beautiful tree, so very erect.—A.N., Brussels. Answer: Everything, including leaves, have an average lifespan after which they die. Your treatment of tlie plant sounds OK to me. The fallen leaves developed about three years ago, and that's about average. If you want plant to branch out like a tree pinch out top. / * * + * Dear Mr. Clausen: We find a species of tree referred to as a "Mississippi Berry" to be highly satisfactory as a shade tree, but we find it. springs up as many new shoots all over' our property and the neighbors. Also, its roots extend into tlie neighbor's yard. Is there any way we can keep tlie trees without producing so many offshoots? Also, what can be r done to stop tlie objectionable roots?—N.D.M. Answer: I confess I do not know what a "Mississippi Berry" tree is. Could it possibly be a "China Berry" tree, CMelia Azedarach) or its close' x relative, the Texas Umbrella Tree? They have blue flowers in April and yellowish cheiry- like fruits in fall from which they spread. Very rare this far north. There's no practical' way to keep.a tree from sending its roots in all directions. Have known, them to go under a four foot wall and come up on theVother side.
