Ann Landers Lecherous Landlord Raises Rent DEAR ANN: My girl friend and I found an ideal apartment near the store where we both work. The rent is reasonable and we love it here. . The other ngiht when I plugged in the electric iron all the !£$* lights went out Jin the back part the house. I knew I had blown a fuse. ; So I rapped on '-the landlord's * door and asked '. him if he would help me out. He : said I'd have to Ann Landers, come down to the basement with him and hold the flashlight while he replaced the fuse. Well, the old geezer made a at me. Can you imagine a thing—with his own wife sitting upstairs in their living !• room! I told him if he ever I tried anything funny again I'd brain him. This morning there was a note in our mailbox saying the rent is going up $30 next month. We can't pay more and we hate to move. Please tell us what to do about this rotten situation. -WE LIKE IT HERE DEAR HERE: Tell the old lecher you suspect his little note was all in fun, but that if he was serious you will happily discuss the increase with his wife. # * * if DEAR ANN: I'm a stenographer in a large office building. The other evening I was waiting for the bus in the rain and a nice gentleman whom I had seen dozens of times in the elevator came by and saw me standing there. He asked me if I lived north. When I said "Yes" he offered to drop me off. He told me his name but I was flustered and didn't Speaking of Your Health by LESTER L. COLEMAN, M.D. Great Strides Against TB There has been a steady, progressive and encouraging decline in the frequency and severity of tuberculosis in the United States during the past 50 years. 'It was not too many years ago that tuberculosis carried with it the shame and stigma of a social disease. It was actually a source of embarrassment to a family to admit that one of its members had contracted the disease which was so closely associated with the poor and the underprivileged. Required Much Effort It took hard, determined effort over a period of years by federal and local health agencies to enlighten the American people with intensive educational programs. As medical advances progressed, it became more' and more important to bring out into the open all cases of tuberculosis for treatment and cure. Because of these mature health campaigns the disease of tuberculosis has been de-stigmatized. Glorious Era The past 20 years have ushered in a glorious era of medicine. Unmatched in the history Mother's Helper by H«imonn & PforiQit NEATNESS is definitely not 9 part »f » beginning self, feeder's talent*. Don't expect it!

Tuberculosis is one of the diseases that has benefited by these new discoveries. Today it can be said that about 95 per cent of all patients whose tuberculosis is recognized early can recover from the disease. Sanitariums and hospitals, previously bursting at the seams with tuberculosis patients, are now being closed all over the United States. The complete eradication of tuberculosis, however, is not yet a reality. Tuberculosis is still too prevalent among the underprivileged, t h e undernourished and the unenlightened. To these groups, social, welfare and health agencies are devoting their energies in an effort to further reduce the incidence of tuberculosis. It is paradoxical that the encouraging statistics have given to many a false sense of security and a feeling of complacency as though the disease no longer exists. But it does exist, and if tuberculosis is to be completely eradicated it must be vigilantly pursued. Co-operation Needed Tuberculosis can be cured only when it is recognized and it can be recognized and cured when every single individual in America cooperates with health officials in the planned program for the detection of the disease. Mobile X-ray units criss-cross all over America taking minimal exposure X- rays of the chest in order to ferret out hidden cases of tuberculosis. Tuberculosis must be seen to be cured. * * * # Encouraging Statistics Since the turn of the century, men and women in America have been given more than 15 years additional life as the result of our newer medical knowledge. Never in man's histpry has there been greater sigtalned health than there is today. These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body, All the hopeful new advances In medicine reported here ore known to doctors everywhere.

I arrived home at the usual time and my mother saw me get out of the man's car. She asked who he was and I had to tell her I didn't know his name. She became furious and said no decent girl would allow herself to be picked up on a comer no matter what the weather. She told my dad and he gave me a long-winded lecture about sex maniacs and so on. I feel they were off base and I'd like your .opinion. —NO CHIPPY * * * * DEAR NO: This man was not a stranger. You knew his face and his place of employment. Nonetheless you should have gotten his name. Next time listen when you are spoken to, Girl. * * * * DEAR ANN: I was interested in your proclamation of "Borrowed Book Day." I am happy to report that it produced three books about which I had forgotten. And I returned one book myself. Now another problem, pertaining to the same subject. I have a friend who borrows books and she does return them but in such disreputable condition that I have to throw them out. She underlines in red pencil passages which she likes— folds over the pages (probably never heard of a book mark) and coffee cup circles appear here and there. The book jackets are invariably torn or missing. Am I justified in asking this friend to replace the books she ruins? I've toyed with the idea but have never been able to do it.-CLARISSA DEAR CLARISSA: Book- borrowers have an obligation to return books in the same condition they were in when borrowed. Next time you lend this woman a book let her know what is expected and make it clear that if she misses the mark she owes you a new book. This will probably put an end to the whole business—and that should be just dandy with you. * * * * Confidential to IN A FIX: Yes, you are.

Simple Way to Make a Belt By PATRICIA SCOTT There are many belt-making kits available with just the right amount of belting plus a buckle and instructions: however, if you prefer to buy belting by the yard and separate buckles, here is a simple way to make a professional looking accessory. 1. Cut the belting 5 inches longer than your waist measurement. At one end, make a point. 2. Out of your dress fabric, cut a lengthwise strip the width of the belting plus % inch, and two seam allowances. 3. Turn the seam allowances under (not including the %. inch) on the sides and fold one end to form a point. Trim the corners, press and . baste. 4. Pin the fabric belt to the belting. The folded edge should go 1/16 inch beyond both side edges of the belting and the pointed end. Baste the fabric belt to the belting. 5. As in figure A, machine stitch % inch from the folded edge along the sides and the pointed end, leaving the straight end free where the buckle will be attached. Remove the basting and press. 6. To attach buckle, cut a long narrow slot for the metal tongue of the belt. Place the tongue through the slot, fold belt end to wrong side of belt and whip-stitch in place (fig- ure B). 7. To measure for holes: measure your waist. Then, make a hole in the belt the same distance (your waist measurement) from the edge of the buckle. Make three or four more holes on each side of the first hole, % inch apart. To make a neat hole use a stiletto. If one isn't available, a nail is a good substitute. 8. To finish the holes so they will not fray, stitch by hand, over and over the edges (figure C). Buckle packages come with their own instructions for coverings. Miss Scott is always glad to hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her column, but because of the great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters, Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, HOW TO ALTER YOUR' DRESS PATTERNS, which gives complete instructions for altering so that finished garments will fit perfectly. For your copy of this guide to correct fitting, write to Patricia Scott in care of this newspaper, enclosing a long, self - addressed, stamped envelope and 25c in coin to cover costs of printing and handling. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Y By VIVIAN nfUWN At* NotvufcrttutPd Wriife Travel offers many nides for Requiring unusual as well as interesting Objects te Improve a room at home or at school. AH, for Instance, originals or reproductions. One grent possibility for not too-well-heeled art - conscious types are museum shop stores where, for a pittance, one may find art that can make pleasing displays on walls or may ho put In scrapbooks. Ah expert on pictures and frames, Fred Rosenau of New York points out: "All museums have postcard size editions of larger prints, and these may be grouped together and framed for attractive, inexpensive wall displays* or put in scrapbooks." At Museum Desks More than 5,000 subjects are available at museum sales desks in this country, he points out. And many museums have reproductions of other art tor sale. "Years ago accuracy suffered when art was reduced in size, but small picture postcards are almost as good in color as exact reproductions," he says. Very large prints run to 35 inches. Extra-size prints are up to 30 inches. Smaller size prints, averaging from about 18 to 22 inches offer a large choice of the world's wonderful arts works — Gauguin, Van Gogh, Raphael, Renoir, Duty, Degas, Braque, Ingres, Signac, Rouault, Utrillo, Da Vinci, Modligliani. • Rosenau has noted the younger generation is more modern- minded in its selection of art than older folk; non-objective type abstract painting is being replaced by more contemporary art in pictures for business walls. That is Rosenau's yard stick for judging real art interest. Many executives who do not have art in their homes are likely to have art on their business walls. "They don't often know enough about it to express an opinion, 'except perhaps they want something to make their office look different than 500 others like it. Ten years from now when today's teen-agers have moved up to executive- type jobs, they will have more to say about what they display." Magazine Illustrations Young people can find illustrations in old magazines worth framing, and they could even try framing their own artistic expressions. It is one more' way to develop interest in good art, Rosenau advises. And by doing it ourselves we can appreciate the talent of others.
