If They Make You Miserable Get Away From Them DEAR ANN: The letter signed "Unsolved Mystery" could have been written by me many years ago. My husband and I both came from cruel and punishing families. Like "Unsolved" we, too, .f \vere unable to un- ;derstand why rela- ;tives would want • to dominate the j lives of those !. around them. Both y husband and were on the I brink of cracking | up. A doctor told _ us the only solu- Ann Landers, tion was to move as far from our relatives as possible. So we did. \Ve bought a big, old house and I got a license for foster child care. W 7 e asked for the difficult and challenging children—the rejected ones who needed our love most. It was the ideal solution. Now there is no time to concern ourselves with what his crazy family—or mine—will do next. All our discussions are about the children. Our lives are free of anxiety and nightmarish family fights. You gave the right answer to "Unsolved," Ann, but I'd like to make it even stronger. Don't allow yourself to be pulled into someone else's hell. And don't try to educate a nut, because all you have when you are through is an educated nut. If people make you miserable, get away from them and fill your life with useful, constructive things.—UNCHAINED AT LAST DEAR AT LAST: Amen. * * » * DEAR AMV: Can you tell me, please, why mothers allow their pregnant young daughters to announce their engagement, and then permit friends to fete them at showers and parties? I am a woman who gave a shower for a pregnant bride—not knowing it, of course. When the baby was born six months after the wedding I felt like a great big fool. I am furious with this girl's mother. Surely she must ha%'e known. Have moral standards sunk to such a level that this is now considered acceptable? Please publish my letter and help mothers to start thinking in the right direction. If something is wrong with my thinking, I'd like to know it.—MITCHELL, S. D. DEAR MITCHELL: Mothers of Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Harold L.

Duncan, Brighton. pregnant brides, I assure you, are less than elated at the prospect of a "too early" arrival. But they do their best to hold up their heads, hoping against hope that the stork will break a leg and show up late. A girl who is visibly pregnant should not have a large church wedding. And to inspire parties for a pregnant bride-to-be is in the worst possible taste. » * * * DEAR ANN: I'd like to say a word or two to Vincent's mother, Mrs. B.B., who rushed to the summer camp and hauled her son out after three days when he phoned and whimpered, "Come and get me, Maa." I spent 24 years in the Armed Forces and retired last year as a captain. According to my figures, little Vincent is now 13 years old. In about seven years he will be called into the armed services, and if he hasn't learned something about taking orders by then he's going to have a mighty rough time of it. Once he's In the service he won't be able to telephone home and say, "Come and get me, Ma." Mothers who believe they are raising "Free Thinkers" when they shield their children against "order-taking" are not helping their children to be strong and independent. They are making cripples out of the kids. As you said, Ann, "Nobody can live in this world and do as he darned well pleases." I hope, you will print this letter for the kid's sake. Thanks. —C.A.—U.S.A.R. DEAR FRIEND: Here's the letter "for the kid's sake." Thanks for writing. * * * » 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 The Gaskills Mr. and Mrs Berry Gaskill of 216 Main St., gave a barbecue dinner Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Roy McAvoy of St. Louis as honored guests.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY It is known that extremes in temperature produce changes in respiration, heart action, energy, digestion, etc. Temperature and humidity may also have a remarkable effect OD body resistance and adaptation mechanisms. These physiological syndromes undoubtedly affect our sense of well - being, and secondarily our attitudes, moods, judgments and tempers. Is music a lot of noise? Answer: Both music and noise are produced by vibrations in the air, and with some of our modern music it is often difficult to know just where to draw the line. Modern dance music may thrill modern dancers, but seem horrible noise to persons trained in classical music. The difference depends on the conditioning of the individual. The noisy clatter of a train may annoy many rail • side residents, Inn seem pleasantly welcome to a restless commuter late for work. • «. Can Heather ufftct jour personality'.' Answer: Ves. Kveiyone observes this phenomenon, but us >et. there is no complete explanation of how and why it does. (C I'-W.i. K!nn Feature*. Synd., Inc.) Are driving tests reliable? Answer: Not entirely. Prof. John Cohen of Manchester University, England, tested student reactions to speed, timing, distance, etc., while they were being driven about in a sealed car. During each journey a bell was riuig inside the car, and the rate of speed changed. When questioned afterward, many of (lie students consistently overestimated travel lime, most of thorn underestimated speed when it reached 10 miles per hour, 90 per (jent underestimated 90 mph. MRS. FLIPPO MRS. ADSIT Speaking of Your Health by LESTER L. COLEMAN, M.D. Prevention of Migraine The distress of migraine can be appreciated only by those unfortunate enough to suffer from it. Millions of people in America are plagued by this specific form of headache. Migraine most often occurs in highly alert, tense, driving, ambitious, intelligent young adults. It frequently repeats itself in families. Periodic Pata The common characteristic of migraine that distinguishes it from a vast group of headaches is the recurring periodic pain over one side of the head. This intense and penetrating pain in an eyeball or temple is often accompanied by nausea and temporary changes of vision. Many sufferers from migraine can actually foretell the onset of an attack by what is called an "aura" —any one of a variety of strange feelings that, for the individual, has come to mean the beginning of an attack. The exact cause of migraine still evades the investigation of scientists. However, it is agreed that migraine is associated with a distention of the blood vessels of the brain. As with many other obscure conditions, allergy is a prime, but indefinite, suspect. Emotional disturbance, stress and anxiety can always be relied on as contributors to the causes of migraine. Reported Cures The reported cures for migraine are many. Some are successful without scientific corroboration. Others, even with scientific blessings, do not fulfill their promise. Ergotamine tartrate and its varied derivatives have been a boon to many patients who were incapacitated by severe migraine headaches. Other sufferers have found, by trial and error, their own special way of obtaining some relief. And now from the Headache Unit of Montefiore Hospital in New York City comes great hope in the form of a new and valuable drug for the prevention of migraine. This complex chemical is called "methysergide." It has been carefully studied and found to be extremely effective in the prevention of all forms of migraine headache. It is not, however, effective as treatment during an acute attack. Carefully Studied In the study at the Montefiore Hospital, the drug was used under careful and strict supervision, regularly and without interruption, in order to learn its greatest value as a preventative. Like many others, this drug cannot be used by all people under all circumstances. It cannot be used during pregnancy or in the presence of severe high blood pressure. Methysergide holds great hope and promise for prevention of this disquieting and painful affliction of man. And this promise seems to be only the beginning of the researches in migraine that will bring the condition under complete control. While Dr. Coleman cannot undertake to answer individual letters, he will use readers' questions in his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest. Address your letters to Dr. Coleman in care of this newspaper. <<D 1963, King Features, Synd., Inc.)
