Ann Landers Bragging Parents Are Bores DEAR ANN: There is a certain couple in our crowd who bores everyone to death with endless reports of what their children are saving and doing. They have two kids who are I' bright and attractive but the rest of us have kids L -of whom we are pretty proud too. . The mother car- l?,ries the girl's * j£ themes in her :' purse and reads . „!>< them at bridge s luncheons. The Ann Landers, father always "just happens" to have a letter in his pocket from the boy which was written when he was away at camp. They both carry pictures, dozens of them — and I have seen the same batch of pictures three times. They forget who has seen and heard what, and I for one, am mighty tired of. the whole routine. These parents are not stupid, yet they are not even remotely aware that they are boring their friends to death. Any suggestions?—CAULIFLOWER EARS DEAR EARS: Isn't it awful when people won't stop bragging about their kids long enough to give us a chance to brag about ours? I know the type and they are insufferable. There is no way to turn off proud parents. You may as well try to turn off the sun. If you just happen to have a couple of hundred pictures of your own kids handy it could break up the monotony. * * * * DEAR ANN: I'm 18 years old and training to be a nurse. I feel that I know my way around pretty well because I've been dating since I was 12 and have always been considered mature for my age. Three months ago I began to take stock of myself. I counted 17 fellows I have actually gone steady with and there have been at least 20 others whom I dated two or three times. All I have to show for my popularity is a few beat-up rings, some cheap bracelets, dozens of pictures and a stack of letters. Six weeks ago I met an intern who is, a real doll. He has been dating other nurses but I think he likes me best. The problem Weekly Book Review Teachers' 'Miseducation' Discussed by Author By DAVID EARL HOLT Librarian "The Miseducation of American Teachers," by James D. Koerner. This book pulls no punches. It discusses with equal candor the colleges which force their students through meaningless courses; the powers-that-be who grant doctorates in education or even in philosophy without real contribution to knowledge or even a thesis; the states whose certification requirements stultify progress; the local school boards who "allow themselves to be led by the nose in their choice of teachers," "The establishment" which uses an "interlocking system of power to protect things as they are against any improvement." The author bases his book on a two-year study supported by Relm Foundation, Ann Arbor, Mich., during which he visited many teacher training institutions, large and small, good and bad, in all parts of the country. He enriched this material by practical analysis of such things as transcripts of credits, whiqh show what the average teacher's background really is, and questionnaires giving the teachers' own views of the courses that led to their degres. American teacher education has been the target of many barbs of late, and this book is no exception. It should serve as an appetizer for those who would enjoy the up-coming James B. C o n a n t' s piece-de-resistance, "The Education of American Teachers," It is evident, however, that they both agree with Adams (quoted from the Education of Henry Adams")—"The chief wonder of education is that it does not ruin everyone concerned in it, teachers and taught." Also recommended: "The Love Everybody Crusade," by Arthur Hoppe. Essays spoofing everything and everyone from the 'first family ("Just Plain Jack") to the pseudo witch hunters ("Take a stand for!").

"Monte Walsh," by Jack Schaefer—The western novel to end all western novels by the author of "Shane." is I can't get any kind of commitment out of him. He won't go steady and he refuses to discuss anything permanent. He says he is stone broke and can't think seriously about any girl at this time. How can I nail him?—EVE DEAR EVE: I wouldn't say an 18-year-old girl is exactly a candidate for the Old Folks Home. Why should you want to nail anybody? Just because you've dated a small battalion of guys doesn't mean you're mature. It only means you've been busy. You have chosen an excellent field for service and for meeting people. I suggest you put on the brakes and forget about marriage for a couple of years. * * * * BEAR ANN: I read your views on giving boys a permanent wave and I do not agree that it is a bum idea. Listen to my story and you'll understand why. When my son was 11 years of age I decided his hair would look much nicer curly instead of straight as a stick. So I gave him a permanent. From then on his hair was wavy and beautiful. All it needed was a little coaxing. To this day (eight years later) my son has the prettiest wavy' hair a person could wish for. Now, aren't you sorry you told that young fellow to leave his hair alone?—DAILY READER DEAR DAILY: No, I am not sorry, and the advice stands. As for your son's hair remaining permanently curly after the permanent you gave him eight years ago, there is no scientific reason for it. Hah- grows out of the scalp either curly or straight. If your theory added up, one permanent would be all anyone would need. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY were forcibly injected with morphine twice daily over an extended period. The chimps had no recognizable • unpleasant realities to escape from, but they soon began showing signs of addiction. When morphine was withheld they would become agitated, pull the experimenter toward the injection room, hand him the syringe, and assume the position for "shots." Is it enough to do your best? Answer: Not always. If you do your best while working for yourself, and fall short of expectations, you alone will suffer. When working for others who know your limitations, your best is all they expect. However, if you have considerably exag-- gerated your abilities to procure a job, your best efforts will not be enough. Your best must at least equal what you have led your employer to expect, and to merit promotion you will have to do much better than your best. Can animals become drug addlvta? Answer: The higher apes can become addicted. In one experiment a group of chimpanzees <0 1883, King Feature. Synd., lac.) Are bachelors a healthy lot? Answer: Some no doubt are, but they are more troubled with neurotic illneases and conflicts than spinsters are. Researchers report that bachelors tend to think of themselves as rejected (whether or not they ever were), and this in itself is a deterrent to good mental health. Spinsters who have not received an acceptable proposal to many tend to think of themselves as unchosen, rather than rejected. This jg Jess damaging to the ego, hence less disturbing to personality growth.
