FRIDAY, JULY 5, 1968 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE A41 Ann Landers Will He Change Mind, Come Home? IJEAtt ANN: You hear a lot of talk about the serviceman who receives a "Dear John" from his girl back home when he is chopping his way through some faraway jungle. My story is Just the opposite. You might call it a "Dear Jane." When Jbhti went overseas I promised to write every day and I kept my word, I sent him newspa- made cookies, also many small but thoughtful gifts. I devoted all my spare time to letting him know I loved him and was living for the day when he would come home. This Went on for 10 months. John was never a letter writer so I didn't expect much, but when he did write, his letters were warm and wonderful and I read them over so many times I knew them by heart. Yesterday I received a note saying, "Sorry I didn't tell you sooner but I'm going to marry I am in a daze. I don't know if 1 should forget about him, write and wish htn luck, or hope he'll change his mind and come home to me after all. My parents think he played a rotten trick on me. I'm confused and hurt. Please advise. -JANE DEAR JANE: Pick up the pieces and get back in circulation. And don't be bitter, dear. A lonely guy 8,000 miles away from his girl is exception ally vulnerable. The females he meets overseas may not be overwhelming but they are over there. * * * » DEAR ANN: My wife suggested I write to you because our problem is one we don't want to discuss with anyone in this city. Last week our 16-year-old son came home from boarding school. He said he had some thing important to tell me. From omosexual. His mother and are crushed. I blame myself or failing as a father. I feel uilty for not spending more me with him. My wife says his way of life was probably nflicted on him by the other ioys at school. 16 it possible? Our son has always been a ithlete, popular with both boys and . girls. He is also very andsome, almost beautiful, which adds to the problem. Should We send him to a coed high school next fall? He says he doesn't want to see a Red Cross girl the week I arrived. Cherries Garnish Chicken This is the lime for enjoying the bounty of summer in leisurely patio dinners. For the main course, what could be more perfect than no-worry baked chicken with a crisp cheese coating. On the side, sliced potatoes dazzle with a tangy sauce of French dressing and herbs. All eyes will be on the bright, bowl of juicy sweet cherries fresh from the rich orchards of the northwest. Such fruit is truly the essence of summertime. Be on the lookout for this bright-signal of summer. Fresh sweet cherries are available through mid-August. Your wis est choice will be round, plump cherries with a deep red color. Refrigerate them in plastic bags and they will keep in perfect condition for desserts, salads or out-of-hand eating. Two varieties of dark fresh sweet cherries come to you from the sunswept orchards of Oregon and Washington.

I assure you that his mother and I are. Please advise, -HEARTBROKEN DAD DEAR DAD: Insist that the boy see a doctor. There's a chance that he might not be a homosexual. The amount of ignorance on this subject is appalling. A co-ed high school might be a good idea. A change of scenery and companions could be helpful. Be aware, however, that homosexuality cannot be "inflicted on" a normal male so don't blame the school if it turns out that the boy is a homosexual. To Clean Fine Carpets Be safe. Be satisfied.
