JACKSON MRS. 1 ARRIS Ann Lajiders She Should Stick to Crocheting DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm at odds with my daughter-in-law because of the way she is teaching our grandson about sex. It has always been the custom in our family to tell the children they were stars before they were born. The other daughters-in-law have gone along with this lovely story but Mary Ellen insists she is going to do things her way. Last evening several members of the family the living room were seated in and our 3-year- old grandson suddenly asked, "Mommy, where was I before I was born?" Mary Ann Landers. Ellen shocked us all by replying, "You were right under my heart — warm and safe." The boy then asked how he got there. His mother answered, "God wished you to be there, so he planted a little seed and you grew there." Isn't is nonsense to tell a three- year-old such things? The star story is so much more beautiful. Children have plenty of time to learn what life is really like. Please comment on this. L. D. C. DEAR L.D.C.: I'm sorry, but Mary Ellen's version is far more beautiful than that bale of horse feathers about the stars. And furthermore, when your grandson grows older he will learn that his mother was telling College Notes Miss Susan Craig, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl H. Craig of 16 Frontenac Place, Godfrey, has returned to her studies at Harding College, Searcy, Ark. Miss Craig will be a third year secretarial science major this year. Terry Barton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Barton of 2340 Edwards St., left Sunday for classes at Oklahoma State University where he will be a junior student. He has been working in Little Rock this summer. His sister, Pat, is at home for a few days between sorority rushing activities and the beginning of classes at the University of Arkansas. She will leave Tuesday for Fayetteville where she will be a senior. Miss Barbara Lynn Bums, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Grant L. Burns of 1123 Easton St., left Saturday for Champaign where she will participate in the Illini Guide meeting at the University of Illinois. Miss Burris, who will be a senior student this fall, is vice president of her social sorority, Delta Delta Delta. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND ift-?(••;» >ijf,<i"-t, ,, ', ' ' ' ' ''' - By JOSEPH WHITNEY land, reported in the Insider's News Letter, concluded that all people have random "spells" during which their efficiency is impaired. Accident frequency was found to be closely related to the experience and age of drivers. Beginning drivers are those most likely to have accidents; next are people over age 50, despite their 30 years of driving in between. Should you eve r refuse a gift? Answer: Not if the gift is from a true friend. The art of graciously accepting a gift is much more difficult than giving one, yet is is just as important in the enrichment of one's life. Too many persons apologize or protest their un wort hi ness when offered a gift, but immediate acceptance would avoid embarrassment and go quite some distance toward repaying the kindness. Of course one should not always accept gifts or kindnesses without giving them. Can accident be overcome?

Answyr; It may in some cases, and promote marriage in others, A recent study of 3,658 young married persons in Pennsylvania found only 42 per cent whose spouses were both of the same religion. Roman Catholics and Mennonites were most likely to marry within their religious affiliations (69 per cent), and Episcopalians were the most open group, with only 22 per cent intermarrying. Conversions after m.uriuge were found to be about the same. the truth—and the truth, it seems to me. has something to commend it, too. I suggest you go back to your crocheting and leave the young mothers alone. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is a touchy subject because I've been married only three months, but I don't know where else to turn. My wife snores worse than any guy I ever bunked with when I was in the Navy. To look at her you'd never think such a dainty little thing could make so much noise in her sleep, but it is the living truth that unless I fall asleep first I'm a dead duck. I can't go on much longer without sleep. I work at a job that requires steady nerves and I'm getting shaky from exhaustion. • Please tell me if you know of a cure for snorers, so I can suggest something, instead of just hitting her with the complaint. BLOODSHOT EYES. DEAR EYES: Sleepless nights can hatch a whole set of serious problems so you'd better speak up, mate. Your wife should go to a doctor and learn if her snoring is caused by an obstruction in the nasal passage. If that's the problem it can be easily remedied. In the meantime, turn her head gently to the side when she starts to snore. Sometimes this helps— for a while.

Our bookkeeper has been pilfering fairly large sums of money, always paying it back in installments. This has been going on for three years that I know of. I am afraid that one day this will be discovered and I may be implicated. Our office is set up in such a way that this practice could not go on without my knowledge. I've told the guilty person I know what he is doing and I've urged him to stop. I've threatened to report him, but he continues in the same old way. This situation is causing me considerable concern and now I feel I must do something about it. Should I go to his minister, his wife or the boss? Or should I keep my mouth shut and hope for the best? JUMPY DEAR JUMPY: Go to the pilferer tomorrow and show him a copy of the letter which you should write to the financial vice- president today. Tell the pilferer the letter is going into the mail in 30 days if the books are not precisely as they should be. This will give him ample time to get things squared away. And urge you to keep your word. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

COLEMAN, M.D. Too Much of a Good Thing PERFECTLY safe and harmless substances can sometimes become troublesome if used without moderation. Household salt, for example, can certainly be included in a list of ordinary innocuous products. Yet concentrated salt, taken in paste form, can be severely injurious to the body. In fact, it is said that certain Oriental groups have used excessive quantities of salt for the purpose of their own destruction. Fortunately, our sensitive taste discourages any such experimentation. A Possibility One would not imagine that milk in any form could present any such problem. Yet attention has been called to this possibility. Concentrated powdered milk is nourishing and easily prepared. The directions are simple, and when followed carefully this milk becomes an important food for infants and children. Too often the parent is tempted to disregard the specific instructions on the label. Many may feel that a greater concentration of the powdered milk can be even more beneficial to their children. Lumpy Concentration This generosity has been known to cause a large, lumpy collection of concentrated pro- Hayner Library Staff Is Entertained The staff of the Hayner Public Library was honored Saturday evening at a barbecue dinner given by Mr. and Mrs. David E. Holt in the yard of their home at 1033 Wilkinson Ave. Mr. Holt is librarian at Hayner. Thirty persons, including husbands of staff members, were guests. Also honored were the Misses Jane Fichtel, Rosemarie Maneke and Ann Young, who have been employed as pages by the library, and are leaving to attend college. /. Dean Twining J. Dean Twining, former teacher here, has accepted a position as assistant professor of education at Ball State Teachers' College, Muncie, Ind. He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from Ball State, has done work toward his doctor of philosophy degree at the University of Michigan, and has taught for the past 10 years in the Michigan School for the Deaf. tein which stays lodged in the stomach of children. Nausea and vomiting may result, and the infant develops strange, indefinable symptoms. The real cause is rarely suspected at first as a factor. Sometimes it is not until the child is X-rayed that the presence of this consolidated mass of solidified milk called "lacto- bezoar" is discovered. Fortunately, the condition can readily be treated by returning the infant to a feeding regime of ordinary or skimmed milk. The mass slowly dissolves and begins to disappear. The manufacturers of all infant foods carefully decide the ideal concentration for the maximum health benefit to infants and children. Children thrive when these instructions are rigidly followed. They should be unless any variation is suggested by the attending doctor. * * » Mystery Gland The elusive secrets of one of the body's mystery glands are beginning to be unraveled. The purpose of the pineal gland has been the basis for wide-r e a c h i n g speculations. None were ever completely sub- statiated. In fact, th,e study of the pineal gland, located deep in the brain, has frustrated many scientists for years. It was accepted as a hormone - secreting gland whose anatomical position was known, but whose exact function was not known. Identification Made Now, at the National Institute of Mental Health, a hormone, melatonin, has been specifically identified with the pineal gland. The subtle function of this hormone is to direct and regulate many of nature's '•time clocks" built in to many parts of the human body. Bio- rythm is a method of keeping in balance respiration, heart rate, temperature, and the myriad mechanisms that make the body more wondrous than all the man-made moon satellites that can be conceived or devised. The newer light shed on the function of the pineal gland further advances the knowledge ol the vast complex of hormones " on which our lives depend.
