My problem is one of normal curiosity — anyone in my spot would do the same thing, but it's ruining my health. I live in an apartment complex that has a courtyard. A married woman who lives across the way from me entertains a man almost every night — and I do mean entertains. I have n very powerful pair of binoculars and can sec everything that goes on. Sometimes this man stays until 3 a.m. and I have to get up at 6:30 a.m. to go to work. It's horrible when I try to drag my tired body out of bed after so little sleep. It might sound awful, but I've been considering writing the woman's husband an anonymous letter, tipping dim off. Then perhaps he would stay home more and I could got some rest. What do you think? — No Will Power PEAR N.W.P.: I think you ought to give those binoculars lo a friend, draw the dra- porirs before Ihe show goes on and get. some sleep before you collapse from sheer exhaustion. Dear Ann Landers: The bumper sticker that reads: "Warning: I Brake for Animals" is incomplete. It should read: "I Brake for Animals and Kill People." Scores of lives are lost every year in ncridenls caused by drivers who foolishly avoid hitting a dumb beast. Is k world it? What do you say'.' -- I Love Animals, Too — But DKAR LOVE: An alert driver can sometimes glance in his rear-view mirror and see if anyone is behind him. If no one is, he should brake and spare the animal. 1C the driver spots traffic on his tail, he should keep going and pray that the cat, dog, rabbit or chipmunk makes it. A cow. on the other hand, poses a serious problem if there is oncoming traffic. The driver has lo choose between the head-on or the cow. The cow would be my choice since it would involve less human Damage. * * * Dear Ann Landers: People complain about paying 10 cents for a stamp, yet they won't bother to make certain their letter reaches its destination by checking the zip code tu be sure it's right. Nor will they take the extra minute lo write their name and return, address on the envelope — just in case. I work in the dead-letter section in a post office in St. Louis. During the holidays it made me sick to see the beautiful cards that would never be received because of illegible handwriting, incorrect zip codes and wrong addresses. If the sender had put down his address ho could at least have tried again; I wonder how many people are hurt because they receive no reply to a letter that ended up in the dead-letter section of a post office. — A Witness DEAR WITNESS: Thank you for the reminder. And thanks, too, for an opportunity t:> say a word to people who send money for my booklets, enclose the stamped envelope and address it to Ann Landers instead of to themselves! * * * CONFIDENTIAL TO WHY????: If you tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe, he'll believe you. But if you tell him a bench has just been painted, he has to touch it to be sure. There's 1 no explaining human nature. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, P. O. Box 491, Lubbock, Tex., 79408, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Luncheon Honors First Lady LOS ANGELES (DPI) -Mrs. Betty Ford said Wednesday she felt depressed by the "tragic, tragic" plight of refugees in Vietnam and that when she saw pictures of crying, orphaned children her reaction was that "I want lo adopt them." The First Lady flew here from Palm Springs as guest of honor at a luncheon of the Blue Ribbon 400, a group of social and civic women leaders which was instrumental in founding and maintaining the Los Angeles-Music Center. Afterwards Mrs. Ford talked briefly with reporters and said that, like everyone, she was shocked at the suffering of civilians fleeing the Communist drive into Scuth Vietnam. "The President is doing everything possible lo get as many people as possible out by plane and ship, 1 ' she said. Asked if she was actually thinking of adopting some of the orphaned children, Mrs. Ford smiled and said: "Well, I don't think Mat would go over loo well with my husband. You know, we have four already." Mrs. Ford added that she was giving thought to what the women in the United States and other countries could do to help and intended to pursue the matter.

BY BARBARA HUGHES Family N«w» Staff "I'd rather go without breakfast "than go without* my makeup," claimed Mrs. Carmen Menocal, a strikingly -lovely New Yorker, One look at this 64 year- old's smooth complexion and lively eyes is enough to convince other mature women to trade in their bifocals for falsa eyelashes and moisture cream, Mrs. Menocal and another Now Yorker, Miss Kalhie Kipsey, are visiting Lubbock this week to demonstrate an internationally known brand of cosmetics at a local department store. In an interview Wednesday they talked of their ments, philosophies and cosmetic routines — all of which are components of that enigma called beauty. "I love makeup. A woman who looks good has self respect and confidence in herself." • Mrs. Menocal said. Both women stressed the protective value of makeup as well as the cosmetic value. "Makeup acts as a screen to protect your face from wind, dust and pollution." Miss Kipsey said. She stated that even for casual activities, such as tennis, it is important to shield bare skin from the sun with at least eye iotion, moisturizer and foundation. The eye area is very sensitive. ''The eye area is the first to go " in the aging process, continued the auburn-haired beauty. Miss Menocal described how the skin has a "light memory" all the sunlight that the skin has been exposed to throughout one's life, though not immediately noticeable, has an eventual unpleasant effect. "The skin remembers and one day you'll wake up with little brown spots cropping up," she warned. Miss Kipsey tries for a TALL GIRLS Want pretty Clothes, too Come try us!

May your day be blessed with all that makes you happiest! WAN1 ADS WILL FIND YOU A BUYER light tan every summer and babies her skin with sunscreen lotions and moisturizers to counteract the damaging effects of too much sunlight. "It's very important to match your, foundation with, your skin tone. The shade should negate one's bad points and stress one's good points. An average woman can wear three different shades of foundation at different times," Miss Kipsey continued. She changes her foundation -according to her outfits — a cooler makeup tone to go with bright busy outfits, a more colorful lone for subdued simple styles. The women communicate a sense of fun with makeup. Their line carries 24 shades of eyeshadow, which in itself encourages the "do your own thing" spirit. Miss Kipsey predicted the makeup look, for summer. "The eyeshadows will be in pastel shades — light aqua, lilac, blue. Lipsticks will also be more pastel. We'll see a paler makeup base for a glossy feminine look. Eyeliner is coming back along with lots and lots of mascara." Mrs. Menocal and Miss Kipsey agreed women across the country are much more casual about their makeup today. Mrs. Menocal travels constantly. This she finds difficult but exciting. "There are so many interesting people to meet. Every country has its own personality," she smiled. A native of Cuba, she received schooling in Paris. In this intercultural e-xperience. Mrs. Menocal learned five languages. "It's so important to be able to communicate with other people." Both women maintain an affection for New York City. "It's got the best for fashion, theatre, music," ' said Mrs. Menocal. "You can't go walking at night," noted Miss Kipsey, "but there's such an air of excitement there. I love it." The women plan to depart from Lubbock Friday. Familiarity Breeds Contempt? PARIS (WNS) — Give up that double bed if you want your marriage to last, says Canadian marriage guidance counselor, Dr. Ernest Ross, on a tour of Europe. "Familiarity breeds contempt," he says. "People find the close proximity stifling. That's why I advocate separate bedrooms for couples wanting a good Jong- lasting marriage. "Privacy is essential to marital success. We have to knock all that starry-eyed romantic nonsense out of marriage."
