Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard won., July i, 1968 p 0 .17 Ann Landers . . . Answers Your Problems Dumb, Dangerous Dear Ann Landers: I'm having a problem with my husband. Please don't suggest I talk it over with my clergyman. He is my clergyman. Here's what happened: Last month "Mr. Greatheart" gave his gasoline credit card to a woman I've never seen. Her husband is in jail. Nowadays people can buy just about everything under the sun with a gas credit card. I was stunned that he would allow a woman such privileges. The woman phoned two weeks ago and asked me what to do with the credit card now that she had found a job. I handed the phone to my husband. He instructed her to mail it to him. (This was how I learned of it.) Two weeks have passed and the card has not arrived. My husband doesn't know where the woman is or which credit card he gave her. We've been married 20 years and have four children. Our life has been one endless financil strugg ! e. I am hurt and shocked. What do you make of this? -WEARY Dear Weary: If you suspect hanky-panky, forget it. No woman would ask the wife of a man with whom she'd been fooling around what to do with his credit card — unless she is crazy, that is. When your clergyman receives the bill he should cancel the card and keep a record of the woman's charges — in case she would like to repay him one of these days. Your husband probably thought he was being generous, but in my opinion it was a dumb and dangerous thing to do. o o o On GoofJba//s Dear Ann Landers: I'm writing in to the mother who found goofballs in her son's pocket. He said he was using them to stay awake studying for college exams. When I was in undergraduate school I, too, relied on "bennies" — until one day I woke up feeling very strange. I discovered my heartbeat was 166. I was frightened out of my wits and went immediately to our family doctor. He gave me some invaluable advice which I'd like to pass on. It seems the doctor was an Air Force pilot in World War II. The medics used to give the pilots artificial stimulants for long-distance bombing raids. They stopped, however, when the casualty rate increased. They discovered those artificial stimulants did funny things to a pilot's judgment, vision and space perception. The pilots were ordered to lay off the bennies and to take 10- or 15-minute naps when they felt the need for a boost. I tried the pilot-doctor's suggestion and it worked splendidly. I was able to study efficiently for about 18 hours out of a 24-hour period. My grades improved and I had to admit that the cramming I had done on "bennies" had not produced the high marks I'd hoped for. Pass the word, will you, Ann? I spent nine years in college and tried just about everything Lhe students are trying now, so I ought to know. -COLORADO PROF Dear Prof: Consider it passed. I A word from one who has made 1 the scene packs a much harder wallop. And thanks for the les-1 son, Prof. Those who listen will go to the head of the class.
