ANN LANDERS Poem Has Lesson DMT Ann Landers: The letter about suicide stirred many emotions in me. I identified strongly with the writer because many years ago I seriously considered suicide. Thank God I came to my senses in time. Every now and then someone we know takes his (or her) life and ail the relatives, friends and neighbors are shocked. That individual appeared to be so content — so Fortunate! He seemed to.have every tiling a person could want or hope for. Will you please print this poem by Edward Arlington Robinson? It has a lesson in it for all of us. Whenever Richard Cory went downtown, We people on. the pavement looked at him. lie was a gentleman from sole to crown, Clean favored, and imperially slim. And he always was quietly arrayed. And he was always human when he talked; But still he fluttered pulses vvhen he said. "Good morning," and he glittered when be walked. And he was rich — yes, richer than a king. And admirably schooled in every grace; In fine, we thought that he was everything To make us wish that we were in his place. So on we worked, and waited for the light. And went without the meat, and cursed the bread; And Richard Cory, one calm, summer night. Went home and put a bullel through his head. A Friend Of Yours DEAR FRIEND: I first came across that poem when I was a high school freshman. It stopped me dead in my tracks. It did so again 40 years later and I thank you for the enriching experience. •' * * *-:•••••• Dear Ann Landers: You've printed several letters about all-girl and all-boy families. You also seem quite certain that there is no way a couple can preordain the sex of their cliild. Please check again. It means a lot to us. My great aunt told me that the left ovary produces girls and the right ovary produces boys. She lost her left ovary at the age of 28 and had three boys alter that. Exactly the opposite happened to her younger sister. . . . . My husband and I have three 'boys and we are dying for a little girl. I'd gladly have my left ovary removed if you told me it would work. Y«s or no? — Want A Her DEAR WANT: No — it will not work. Moreover, no ethical surgeon would agree to remove a healthy ovary for the reason you mention. Forget it. *; * • » •,. CONFIDENTIAL to Must Hear From You Immediately But Don't Print My Letter : No chance that I will print your letter. It weighed two and a quarter pounds. After forty ipaiges, I still couldn't define the problem. Please summarize the situation and I'll try to help you. 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. PAGE 2-B.
