toe Ntnfc, Frederic*. Md., Tuesday. December 4, 1951 Dorothy Dix Says: Dear Miss Dix: I have » van influential professional position in my community. Four years ago I married a very nice girl. At that time 1 thought she would be an ideal wife for one in my position For two years our home vas very happy. Then another man destroyed that happiness and the home became a wreck. We separated, she taking our two children. A few months ago I married again and now have a fine wife whom I love verv dearly. -Two weeks ago my first wife wrote, asking me to give her another chance for the children's sake. I would like very much to be with her for the sake of our youngsters but 1 don't love her. Should I break up my present marriage in order to be with my children? My first wife still hasn t signed the divorce papers. P. C. Answer: Your final statement brings up an alarming complication to your problem. It us possible that your second marriage i* bigamous, and you should waste no time in ascertaining if this is so. Having reached a high point in your professional career, 1 assume you are old enough to have some sense. With this consideration in mind, it is difficult to see how you can reconcile your marital instability with your intelligence. If you leave your second wife and go back to the first, you'll wind up yearning for No. 2 again. Think Of Children Even your children will be befuddled by your recurring appearances when you begin the hop from wife to wife. If your children are being well cared for by their mother, you had better stay oul of the picture for a while Make up your mind which wife you prefer to be with, which onp will create the happier home for you, which one is more faithful But first of all, find out which one is legally yours. You might be better off away from both of them for a while. Distance may lend a better perspective to the view, and I would also advise a long talk with s good marriage counselor. Dear Miss Dix: 1 was married for three years, but arn now separated from my husband. When I lived with him he did nothing but run around with girls and beat me. I have been awny for three months now, arn working and very happy. The othet day 1 met my husband on the street and he asked me to come hark. He iHid he was sorry for beating me. but somehow 1 can't trust him. He has made promises before and broken them. Should 1 give him another chance" 1 I don't love him any morn. I've taken so many of his beatings. Maggie Answer: Believing BS strongly as I do in preserving marriage and a home. I am loath to advocate separation or divorce, but I think habitual beating or othei physical violence constitutes EOOC cause for a wife leaving a husband, Since you have gone through t h i s phase of broken promises before you'd be foolish to try all over again. You have established yourself well on a separate maintenance basis. Gome bark to your husband "will make you do it nil over again later. A man given to wife-boating rarely reforms The uncontrollable desire to hit someone becomes so instinctive that it cannot be stopped. You don't low your husbanc anyway, so what have you lo lose by staying away from hiirr Going back means the same procedure all over. Don't risk it' Dear Miss Dix. Am 1 justified in getting upsel and angry when m husband, knowing what time dinner is served, stops in a neighborhood tavern and sits therp for an hour or more? When he pomes home I have to reheat his dinner. If I send for him. ho gets angry 1 don't mind him stopping for one drink but gosh, it's no f u n to sit around and wait until he gots ready to come home Pruscilla N Answer: You certainly arp justified. It's no fun to prepare a good meal and then have to spoil it by reheating. Your husband should have more consideration. Perhaps if you gave him a cold meal once or twice he might get a jolt and reform Otherwise, iust stick to meals that take well to reheating, such as soup, stew, etc. Released by the Bell Syndicate Ths first real recipe given for gunpowder is that of English friar Roger Bacon and calls for saltpeter, charcoal and sulphur.

But she did have a father and her father was Santa Claus. Of course he wasn't the really truly Santa Claus who lives at the North Pole. No. Poppy (Belinda called her father "Poppy") was a make-believe Santa. You see many make believe Santas around town these days: in the stores, on street corners, at school parties. Now, Poppy was Santa Claus at a great department store in a great city It was a jfib h? had for six weeks every year and It was- the only job he had. The rest of. the time he stayed home and kept house for his little girl. Belinda. Naturally, when a man works only six weeks a year his family doesn't have a whole lot of money to live on. But Belinda and Poppy managed fine and Belinda thought she was the luckiest girl in the whole' world. I guess she was, too. You'd have to travel pretty far to find something nicer than being the child of a Santa Claus. Then one year, when Belinda was eight years old, something happened One morning, a little whjU 1 before Christmas, Poppy and Belinda started out for the great store where Poppy worked. They hnd plenty of time and it was a bright cheerful morning so they walked instead of taking a bus as they usually did. It was a lovely walk.'

It was five stories high and had marble steps leading to the front door. It was n rich and handsome house. But Belinda stopped right in front of it and cried. "What a sad house!" "How so?" asked Poppy. "Why, there's not a wreath anywhere' And the shutters are closed so even the sun can't get in!" "Well," said Poppy, "this is the house of Jeremiah Lump. He is the richest nan in the whole city so I don't expect they are too sad in there." Well, Iliey walked on and when they reached the store it was already open and gay Christmas shoppers and bright eyed children were crowding in the doors.

Shuttered house. "Why don't you nave some decorations house?" she asked. "What for?" "Why--for Christmas, of course!" Thomas Lump shrugged his thin shoulders. "We don't have Christ- mfcs at our house," he said quietly. Belinda gazed at him in astonishment. "You mean Santa Claus never comes to your house?" "Never," whispered Thomas Lump. Two large tears were forming in the corners of his eyes. Belinda rushed to him and threw her arms around his shoulders. She thought wildly of some way to cheer this poor rich boy who lad never had a Christmas Finally she blurted. "Don't cry, Tommy! I'll take you to Santa!" (Next: The Mean Mr. Lump) FREE AFTER 27 YEARS DETROIT, Dec. 3. w)--Vance Hardy, 56, walked out of a court building today feeling '"like a native out of the jungle." The big new buildings and the speeding traffic impressed him. "It's wonderful to be free," Hardy said. After 27 years in prison on a murder conviction, Hardy was freed on a directed verdict of innocent at his retrial. In 1924 Hardy was convicted of the murder of a bootlegger. Four men were allegedly involved. But only Hardy went to prison. , With the years-long help of rela- and tonight Santa Claus will come lo your house." Belinda laughed.

She was skipping along dreaming of the tree when presently she found herself once again in front of the stone house. This lime theie was a little boy sitting on the bottom step of the great marble stairs He was dressed in a patched, poorly fitting coat and his eyes were large and sad.
