PAOfiA-10 Family ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FHIDAV, JUNE 28,1MI Ann Landers Hubby's Gift Is Her Lost Fat .DEAR AfoN:' Today I made up my mihd to_ face a problem that has been causing me a Tot of unhappiness — overweight. "I'm going to master my mouth and look like a woman instead of a blimp." Here is my pldh. My husband's birthday Is exactly 110 days away. I'm ___^_ m going to give him TTT""" as a birthday Ann Landers gift—the figure he married nine years ago. This means I must knock off 30 pounds. Please print my letter so I can cut it out of the paper and paste it on my bathroom mirror as a daily strength-giver. Thanks, Ann. -•BETTER CURVES AHEAD DEAR BETTER: Here's your letter but don't paste it on the bathroom mirror. Glue it to the refrigerator door; ,;,your plan provides you with the motivation you've been need- ing: And it's a gift only you can give him. Heartiest congratulations. * * » * DEAR ANN: I have been happily married for 12 years to an attractive man whose virtues outnumber his faults by far. His shyness with women is extremely appealing and, I reasoned, a comforting safeguard. One of the minor. sacrifices 1 made during courtship was his refusal to learn, to dance. He was too self-conscious (he said) to hold a woman in his arms and move about to the rhythm of seductive music. But something has happened to change things. This past year my husband has been doing some business traveling. He reports that the wives of his associates often ask him to dance and he wishes he could! Now" he wants to take dancing lessons. Should I say yes to the lessons or would I be wise to discourage his sudden new interest which might lead to real Miss Hartwick Is Bride Mr. and Mrs. Sy Shore of Creve Coeur, Mo., are announcing the marriage of her daughter, Martha V. Hartwick, to Leo Geisen Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Geisen of Tulane Avenue. The bride is also the daughter of the late Stanley R. Hartwick. Tfle couple was married at 2 p.jn; Sunday in the Curdle ffejghts Baptist Church, attend- W i by the .bride's sister, Miss Barbara E. Hartwick, and Rod- jjjer Longnecker of Batchtown. "^The new Mrs. Geisen wore a| street length white lace over taffeta dress, and a veil, held by a tiara. She carried white roses and baby's breath. Her sister wore a white lace over pink taffeta dress with a pink tulle headpiece, and carried deep pink carnations. Mrs. Geisen graduated from Alton High School in 1965, and attended Southern Illinois University. . :.. Her husband graduated from Marquette High School in 1960, and attends an electricians school. Th'e couple will iive at 3704 Aberdeen Ave. following a short honeymoon. trouble?-D!LEMMA IN THE DISTRICT DEAR DILEMMA: Not all dancers are chasers—and not all non-dancers are true to their wives. If a husband wants to slip his dollar he'll find a way —and he won't heed music. Encourage him to take lessons and be his best partner. i * * * » DEAR ANN: My 38-year-old husband and 14-year-old daughter have a "father-son" relationship which I once thought was wonderful. Now I'm beginning to have some doubts. Every evening Dad and Cora romp on the floor, wrestling and rolling around. She is a fully-developed young lady and, in my opinion, she should hot be horsing around like this. We have a 16-year-old son Who has never been at ease with his father. I've suggested it would make more sense if he wrestled with Junior and left his daughter alone. He says I have an evil mind. Have I?—WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: A fully- developed 14-year-old girl should not be rolling around on the floor with any man—not even her father. The horseplay which may well have started out in complete innocence could set off some unexpected sensations in both participants. Your husband's attitude toward his son, as well as his daughter, suggests he could use counseling. The man needs to gain some insight into his feelings toward his children. If you think it will help, tell him I said so. Confidential to Can't Get Thro to Him: Stop trying. It sounds to me as if he is doing his best. Sometimes when the other person seems to be out of step it is because he hears -a different drummer.

By 0. E. SCHOEFFLER Fashion Director of Esquire Magazine As noted last week, the summer weekend syndrome has made its annual appearance. Whether you just hit the beach on weekends, or whether you're planning to take your vacation on the golden sands, there are some brand-new looks you'll want to consider. First of all, as I pointed out a couple of weeks back, the new look in swim trunks is nothing more nor less than the old "Grandpa" bit; the knitted trunks with a close-fitting athletic look, often striped horizontally to give them a Gay 90's look. You can team them With a cotton knit pullover that's made either to match or contrast, for cabana sitting. The regulation boxer shorts will, I think, be with us for a long tune, especially for the swimmers or poolside sitters who are a bit more portly than a movie idol, but trunks are being increasingly pared down. There's less of them, too, bottom and sideways. Increasingly, men are more interested in putting together their own brands of trunks and beach jackets. The carefully matched or too coordinated sets seem to be losing ground. So whatever brand qf trunks you like, you can choose a jacket that expresses the real ypu. The latest is the adaptation of a safari or bush jacket, in. terpreted in white or bright- colored terry cloth or twill. There are more good-looking men's sandals around today than there have been since the assassination of Julius Caesar, and often of toe same inspiration. For the beach that's somewhat less than silken, look into the adaptations of the rope- soled espadrille that pan cope With the pebhjes underfoot. And above all, don't forget your before and after sun-tan oil or lotion and your sun- or "shades"! * * « * thedral, San Francisco. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Edward L.

Answer: If a person tries to express himself in a medium that takes skill and effort and is not simply an outlet to relieve feelings, he may help himself solve emotional problems. Whatever "art" form he chooses, if he does it well, he will be able to express his pent-up feelings through it. He can perhaps bridge the gap between himself and the world of reality that he may have been afraid to venture into without the aid of his "art." WIM i Jealoos man make a good husband? Answer; The attentions other men pay to his fiancee or bride arouse a healthy mixture ol pride and Jealousy in an emotionally wealthy man. But if ho also hwjmes moody, sarcastic (0 UM, UlAf and suspicious, then he may be showing symptom? of emotional problems carried over from his childhood.
