They I were frozen out Ann LWidcrs. at home and they were weary of complaints and excuses—headaches, backaches , feffiailsllbtii .etc, Or they simply became bored, I am the mistress of such • a man. NAtUralSy, I'd rather be his wif.d/but since this, is out ot the question I'm settling for second' best—and it's not bad. Our atijalr began 11 years ago and the fact that it has survived is evidence that each of us contributes something worthwhile ' to the other, So look around, wives. Has your unresponsiyeness made your husband cold and indifferent? Has he stopped begging for your favors? Is It your husband that I have? If you listen to your heart it will tell you.—NO NAME, NO INITIALS, NO CITY NEAR ; NO NAME, ; 15TO. : That's..what' you think. You have a iiartte all right but this newspaper wouldn't print it. All cheaters have a peachy efceilse. Nothing is .without its price—as you may well discover altnost any day HoW. « s « BtoAR ANN: I'm dating a Very bright fellow who Is 21 years old and has a lot of potential, if only he could overcome a few minor faults. Bernie Is sort of a crusader. He has strong feelings about certain things and to Very outspoken, i admire this quality In him even though my father says he is a goof. Bernie has been asked to leave two colleges because he expressed himself a little too freely and ended up exchanging blows With people; It he could just control his temper he would be fine. Yesterday he was 'fired from his third job because he got into a fight With his supervisor. He last the other jobs pretty much the same way. I would like to marry Bernie some day but I'm afraid to take a chance on a fellow who may .never be able to stand on his two feet. Can you help? —SHAKEY SHIRLEY DEAR, SHIRLEY: It's very difficult for a fellow to stand on 'his own two feet when one foot Is always in his mouth. Bernie may be bright, but if he winds up "expressing himself" by slugging people, he is still a child. ;He may need professional help /since It is apparent that his emotional development was arrested at an adolescent level. » * * * tJEAtt ANN: I'd like to add fily two <S6hts worth to "Dover Soles"—the couple who were irritated by neighbors who refused to accept even one drink at a social get-together. Like you, Ann, I'm a stuffy, rock-headed type who can't be coarted Into having a drink. Furthermore, I don't feel the need to carry a decoy in my hand, t've noticed that the people who are moderate drinkers are content to leave us tion-druikers alone. It's the lushes who always try to force liquor on others. When people become too insistent I tell them t've never yet met a man with so many brains that he could afford to have part of them paralyzed. After that they leave me pretty much alone. —DRY AND HAPPY DEAR DRY AND IIAPPV: Thanks for the letter and the line. 1 know what you mean about "paralyzed brains." It's a sad sight. And the better the brain the suddcr the sight. * * * * 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. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate According to Real Fathers '.r i : . . • . • Television Fathers Differ From 6 IdeaP Fathers URBANA—How do television fathers rate as a model for children? A University of Illinois study with four television family-situation series shows that television presents basically similar images of fathers. But these images differ from the "ideal" father described by a group of real fathers. This study was conducted by Mrs. June Foster in the child development and family relationships division of the home economics 'department. Ratings by 28 fathers described the "ideal" fatner as very moral, reputable and wholesome. He is quite rational, objective and logical. He. is more calm and relaxed than excitable and tense. The "ideal" father is more sociable and extroverted than solitary and introverted. ' Strong-,' Decisive : The :real fathers also described the "ideal" father as very adequate, valuable, competent and wise. He is very strong, decisive, independent and more dominating than submissive.! . -He is consistent and predictable. And lie is more strict than permissive and a warm, secure person. After the fathers scored their concepts-of an "|deal v father, they used- the., same scales to score the fathers in the television programs: "Lassie," "Dennis the, Menace," "Father of the Bride" and "Danny Tho- mas." All four -programs had a mother, father and children of high school age or younger in the cast of characters. These programs were the only ones incorporating , these features that were received in the homes of all the cooperating fathers during the study. Lassie Father Ideal According to the real fathers' ratings, the father in "Lassie" was closer to the "ideal" than any of the other three. Yet even in this show, the father image greatly differed from the "ideal" on eight of the 13 reference points. The other three fathers differed greatly from the "ideal" on 10 of the 13 reference points. All three of these fathers were scored 'as being less adequate, competent, effective, wise, strong, decisive, consistent and predictable than the "ideal." The father images in "Dennis the Menace" and "Father of the Bride" strongly resembled each other even though their roles, were not equally important in the \ two series, As any viewer of "Danny Thomas" would expect, he was rated as more excitable, unique and sociable than the others as well as less predictable and rational. Again It would come as no surprise that Mr. Mitch'ell in "Dennis the Menace" was the only really permissive father. All four television fathers, however, were scored as being significantly less strict than the "ideal" father.

She Fights Racism with Oratory By DENNIS LEtO JOHANNESBURG, S 0 tt t h Africa (JP) — For the next six months Mrs. Helen Suzman will become just another well-to-do white South African housewife, probably open a few church fetes, try to reduce her golfing handicap, play a few rubbers of bridge, take a trip aboard or putter around her luxury, oak- beamed villa In the swank Johannesburg suburb of Houghton. With the resumption of the next parliamentary session In six months she will lake her seat on the opposition benches in the South African parliament, facing the formidable all-male white nationalist members of Dr. Verwoerd's government. Forty-six-year-old Helen S'u/- man is no ordinary housewife. Her voice is fast becoming about the only one to draw parliamentary attention to the plight of the 12 million voteless non-whiles in this white-ruled country. She is the only Progressive Party member of Parliament. She was returned for the Houghton constituency In the last general election of 1961. To her has fallen the task of facing the granite-like wall of Dr. Ver- voerd's ruling Nationalist Party. She's Fiery Orator She is the wife of an eminent Johannesburg physician and mother of two grown daughters both attending university. Her lashing tongue and fiery oratory has made many top Nationalist members squirm in their parliamentary seats. Her political cai-eer began in the United Party (the major group) headed by Sir de Villiers Graaff. She later quit, the party on the grounds that their policy against the Nationalist government and its apartheid (race segregation) was not forceful enough. In 1959 she assisted in the formation of the more liberal Progressive Party and was elected the sole parliamentary representative in 1961. Her relentless attacks on the apartheid policy have become a one woman crusade that has earned her the title of the "Joan of Arc of South African politics." The only two other women MPs, both members of Fearless housewife, Helen Suzman, in her luxurious home. the opposition United Party, seldom speak in the House of Assembly. She Gets News Space Mrs. Suzman's oratorical duels with strongman Minister of Justice Balthazar Vorster and other top Nationalist members often get more space in the English language press than a speech by the Prime Minister himself. From the moment she takes the parliamentary floor Mrs. Suzman discards her housewifely iastincts and becomes a shrewd and forceful politician. She delights in plying the Nationalist benches with searching and embarrassing questions. In the past 180-day parliamentary session she tabled more than 150 questions ranging from "unnecessary" police arrests; Vor- ster's 90-day 'no trial' law, which allows an arrested suspect to languish in jail or be interrogated for a period of three months without charge, legal representation or trial; African pass laws which demand that Africans carry a pass book at all times; whipping of of Africans for minor offenses; unhealthy prison conditions and slaughter stock n overcrowded Stamps in the News By SYD KRONISH (AP Newsfeatures) Two new, attractively designed sets of stamps depicting and honoring worldwide themes have been issued by Nigeria. One set of two stamps in triangular design heralds the llth World Scout Jamboree which took place in Greece this year. The 3 pence gray, green and vermillion features a Greek .and a Nigerian Scout shaking hands. The one shilling black and vermillion features a group of Scouts dancing around a camp fire. Each of these stamps also bears the Scouts' emblem and the text: "Eleventh World Scout Jamboree 1963." The other Nigerian set contains three stamps and is dedicated to the Red Cross Centenary. The three pence shows first aid being administered. The six pence depicts ambulances in action and the 1 shilling 3 pence shows the silhouette of Red Cross workers giving aid and the hand of a youth. Each stamp bears the International Red Cross Centenary emblem of the ancient oil lamp next to the familiar red cross. Although most Americans are familiar with the names Sam Houston, Cordell Hull and John James Audubon who will be featured on forthcoming U S. stamps, few have heard of John Muir who will be philatelically honored this year. Muir is probably America's most noted naturalist. He is credited with the establishment of Yosemite National Park in California and the preservation of the giant Sequoia trees there, Muir, friend of Theodore Roosevelt, induced the Interior Department to set aside lands in California to protect the Sequoias and wrote many articles and books on the beauty of nature. * * * * Word comes from Czechoslovakia concerning three new sets of stamps. One set of two commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Czech Radio. Another set of two stamps honors the 40th anniversary of the Czechoslovakian Air Lines. Each of these stamps shows one of the latest types of jet planes being used. A third set of two stamps pays tribute to the lilOOth anniversary of the Moravian Empire. the plight of transported trucks. Singled out as her greatest Nationalist adversary is Minister of Justice Vorster, who is often 'noticeably ruffled by Mrs. Suzman's palilical barbs. She Speaks Out Few other South Africans would dare refer to Vorster as "a despot and dictator in the full sense of the word," which is how the fiery Progressive parly member publicly described him in the House. During the interview in her Houghton home Mrs. Suzman says: "South Africa is drifting into complete and utter isolation under her present racial policies. Dr. Verwoerd and his government are proving an embarrassment to the Western World." She continues: "South Africa has the best chance in the world to solve its problems. A booming economy, a wealth of industrial and technical know- how and three million whites enjoying the highest standard of living anywhere on the African continent. "We must have closer contact with the Africans and give them a share in the wealth of South Africa. It is essential we remove the main Nationalist weapon of racial discrimination and domination by one class. "We must open the door to the Africans some time and we should start now. "We are all guilty of practicing racial discrimination to fit our varying circumstances but it must not be entrenched as an inevitable way of life."
