SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINE Ann Landers Tell Fatty Where to Sit DEAR ANN LANbKRS: Is there any polite way to tell a woman who weighs 240 pounds how to sit down in a chair? I have a friend who is just as lovely as she can be, but when she comes to my home, my heart is in my mouth. She has broken two chairs and wrecked my scfa springs. I have fine furniture, Ann, but no furniture is built to take the beat- Ing she gives it. She comes in- Ann Landers, to a room and just backs upp to a chair and sort of falls on it. I can almost hear the springs popping and the wood splitting. My husband is sick ol her thoughtlessness and feels that we should send her the bill for any future damage done to our furniture. I just can't bring myself to do it. Please tell me what to do about this embarrassing and expensive problem. —BAFFLED BINNIE DEAR BINNIE: You can't send a friend a bill for damage done unintentionally in your home. It would be nice, however, if the friend offered to pay. Since she does not offer, your bas( bet is to lead her by t h e arm to the chair which can best hold her. And don't let her loose until she has parked herself. DEAR READERS: Every onci in a while I receive a letter that I can print without changing a single word or dropping so much as a comma. I received such a loiter today and here it is: DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is not a Ictler asking for help. There IS no help for me and I know it.

If he only knew how many times he has made me ashamed to be his daughter. If he only knew the times my girl friends have come over and seen him dead drunk — and how I shudder when boys come to take me out and I must rush to meet them on the front steps so they won't get inside the house. I hate to come home because I never know what I will find here. My father is downstairs now, sick as a dog, but tomorrow night he will go out and do the same thing over again. I beg of parents, please stop hurting us kids. — I USED TO LOVE HIM DEAR FRIEND: There IS help for you — if you will reach out for it.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: My Speaking of wife has a 24-year old brother who is getting to be a real pain in the neck. When we first moved to this apartment my wife made the mistake of giving Hymie a key. When I asked her why she did it she said, "Because he asked for it." This sounded like a pretty sensible reason at the time. Now I'm not so sure. Several nights a week when we come home from work, there is Hymic — sitting in my chair, smoking my cigars and drinking my Bourbon. He never brings anything over here except his thirst and appetite — and sometimes a friend or two. Is there a tactful way of get ting the key back? We've really had it. —. LANCASTER, PENN. DEAR LAN: Change the lock on the doors. Tell Hymie you are doing it as an extra precaution against "invaders." If lie asks for a key to the new lock, you can cither tell him "no" or prepare to put up with the moodier, probably for the rest of his life — and yours. © PublUhers Newspaper Syndicate Your Health by LESTER L.

And, of course, only partners ever make mistakes. Dr. Milton Ende of Virginia, himself a bridge expert, became interested in the physical and psychological changes that might occur during routine games ofj social and tournament bridge. With scientific orderliness, he performed many tests on the heart, rilood pressure and pulse rate. Electrocardiograms were taken before, during and after play.

An enterprising engineer named Robert Lesserre of Toulouse, France, has devised a tiny machine that is reported to be helpful in inducing sleep. Inspired by the reputed soporific effect of late night television shows, when many people find it so easy to doze off into sound sleep, Mr. Lesserre has invented a machine that reproduces the sleep-inducing effect of TV. The machine does not offer Gary Grant or Bette Davis films, but It does featuure an ingenious bluish light that rhythmically in creases and diminishes in a tern po that is said to soothe respira lion and the heartbeat. Thus drowsiness is encouraged. This electronic device has been tested at a hospital center in Toulouse. Mr. Lesserre reports that sleep usually follows within five minutes after the "late show" begins.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Teachers Union called on authorities Friday night to end "the harassment and intimidation of the principal and faculty" of a South Side school which has been the target of civil rights demonstrators. The union's house of representatives voted 190 to 1 to call for immediate steps to correct the (situation at Beale Elementary School and to support the principal, who has been besieved by demands that he resign. Demonstrators have picketed the school and staged sit-ins in the office of Principal Willard A. Johnson. They have accused him of racism and permitting mistreatment of pupils and made repeated demands that he resign. On Sept. 4, the opening day of school, 13 demonstrators staging a sit-in in Johnson's office were arrested by police. A statement signed by union president John M. Fewkes, who announced the action after a closed-door meeting, said demands made of Johnson were voiced by an irresponsible group of people." It said the union has no aversion to nonviolent, legal public demonstrations and that the union advocates democratic human relationships. But it said that pickets and demonstrators "are disrupting the education of children at Beale School and ... harassing and intimidating the faculty and principal." It asked the Chicago Board of Education, the police department and the state's attorney's office to end harassment and intimidation "if it is not voluntarily stopped." The house of representatives is the 13,000-member union's governing body. Units of 50 persons each elect one member to the house. Fewkes suggested that representatives of the school administration, the Chicago Commission of Human Relations, the state's attorney and the police department meet with parents from the school and civil organizations to discuss any grievances and take friendly steps to settle them.
