Before an audience he alone must answer for his performance. Under these circumstances his fear becomes exaggerated and interferes with the presentation of his subject. Is motherhood an exciting experience? Answer: According to Dr, Sheila C. Mitchell, University of Michigan, motherhood isn't all it's cracked up to be. About half of all new mothers suffer a "disenchantment syndrome" shortly after returning home with the infant, an unexpected depression and a sense of being trapped. Many experience feelings of guilt because they do not feel they are measuring up to the demands of •ot'iety that "mothers must always enjoy their children, and be wife them constantly." IK stage fright contagious? Anuvver: Usually not. When a speaker is so afflicted, it is because he finds himself without the security of his group. In daily <© 1863, Kins features, Synd., Inc.) Can delinquency symptoms be spotted early? Answer: Evidence of delinquent tendencies have been recognized among six-year-olds. The New York City Youth Board reported one experiment in which 223 boys were rated for potential delinquent tendencies when they en-, tercd school. Based on a social prediction scale, 67 were rated as potential delinquents. Seven yews later, 17 hud become delinquents, and five others were showing pre-delinquent symptoms. Ages 12 through 15 were the "dangerous" years. MES. FELTON MRS. VAN HORN MRS. TURNER MRS. SWISHER V MRS. OERSON MRS. JOHNSON MRS. ROBEY MRS. SCHROEDER The Family Ann Landers Boys Who Make Passes Should Take Off Their Glasses DEAR ANN: Help! Please! I need advice and fast. I went out with this boy whom I will call Robbie. He is very handsome and thoroughly spoiled be- I cause lots of girls * have gone ape ^over him and he iif'knows it. On our second ?date he headed •'|5«for the country, ;| pulled the car to the side the road and said, "I'm bored. Ann Landers. Let's neck." I was very insulted and told him I wasn't the least bit interested in necking with him. He reached over and said, "Don't be so stuffy." Then he tried to pull me close. I warned him if he didn't start back home I would clobber him. He acted as if he didn't hear a word I said, then he lunged at me and tried to kiss me. I hauled off and gave him a good sock. Unfortunately I broke his glasses. He got awfully sore and said if I didn't come up with $20 by next week he was going to send my dad the bill. If he does I will just die. Please tell me if you think I ought to take the money out of my savings account and pay for Robbie's glasses. -NO MAKE-OUT DEAR NO MAKE-OUT: You don't owe the character a dime. Here's a Dorothy Parkerseque couplet which you might suggest he paste in his hatband: "Guys who make passes Should take off their glasses." * * * * DEAR ANN: I was married at age 29, which is fairly late these days. At 31 I had my first child and at 34, my second. Both children are under 4 years of age. I returned to work last year because, frankly, the kids drove me nuts. I must pay a housekeeper, send out all the laundry, pay taxes on my income and dress like a fashion-plate — so naturally my job doesn't leave me with much money left over. But I am not working for the money, I am working because I am happier working than staying home. I feel better when I get up in the morning, get dressed and go to the office. My family has been pestering Favorite Recipes From Mrs. Jesse Hamblen of 412 E. Exchange St., Jerseyville, comes a recipe for cantaloupe jam. She says it is delicious. CANTALOUPE JAM 2 large ripe cantaloupes, peeled and seeded, then diced in small pieces. 1 can (No. 2% size) crushed pineapple. 1 medium orange, use juice and grated rind. 2 lemons—juice of two and grated rind of 1. Measure the above and add the same amount of sugar. Combine and let mixture come to a boil , and stir occasionally until thick. Seal while hot. Please send your favorite recipe, together with picture of yourself, to the Family Page of the Alton Evening Telegraph. The picture will be returned if requested. Recipes are tested by home economists in the Union Electric kitchens. MRS. HAMBLEN me to death. They say I'm not being fair to my children. They say I should quit work and stay home. Would I be fair to my children if I stayed home and let them make a nervous wreck out of me? A straightforward, level-headed, modern opinion is needed.—DEE EL DEAR DEE: My straightforward, level-headed, modern opinion is that mothers of pre-school children should be at home unless it is absolutely essential that they work—essential in financial terms, that is. Your problem is quite different, however. You are running away from home because you don't want to be a mother. A woman who can't tolerate her children has real problems. I hope for the sake of your children, as well as for your own sake, you will get professional help. * * * * DEAR ANN: I married a carefree, irresponsible man against the advice of everyone—including you. After two horrible months of battling I realized I had made a mistake. We separated to think things over. Now I've decided we will never be able to get along, so I'm filing for a divorce next week. The question is this: Shall I keep the wedding gifts or shall I return them? Some of the gifts are still in the boxes. Please guide me.—BROKEN DREAMS DEAR BROKEN DREAMS: The gifts belong to you. It is proper to return wedding gifts only when the wedding has been canceled. * * * * Confidential to IN LOVE WITH A NEUROTIC: Accept the situation and learn to live with it, Successful people must be driven or they wouldn't achieve anything. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of Alton Telegraph and enclose a stumped, self addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Swisher-Bohannon Miss Barbara Sue Bohannon befcame the bride of Dareld S.
