It was a "Lady-Thls-Is-Vour- Life" pageant when the Valley Sailing Association Powder l»tiff Regatta ploughed up and down the Mississippi. The event got under way at 1 p.m. With 14 parttdpatlng boats stoppered by TROPHY WINNER FIRST TIME OUT — Mrs. Ed Someits of Chesterfield,. ,Mq.i gives a victory smile as she and her son, Chris, finish;the Powder Puff Regatta in which women and girls skippered the boats Thursday on Alton Lake. The event was sponsored by the Valley Sailing Association. Ann Landers Ignored by Dad for 5 Years DEAR ANN: I will be 16 In three weeks. My problem' is my father. He has said exactly three things to me in the last five years. Please don't think I am exaggerating because I can tell you what they were. The day after Christmas in 1963 he said, "Get off your fat rump and clean up the house. Or do you plan to let the boxes and wrap- ... ping paper lie AM Landers. around till next year?" On Jan. 2, 1964 he said, "I don't care if it was our party* Clean up toe house." Three weeks ago he said, "Either get a haircut or roH it up. You look like a witch." I have tried to start a conversation With him many times but he ignores me or talks to me, through someone «lse. For example, if I say, <'Hpw come your sox don't' ma.tch?" he'll say to my mother, "What is. she bugging me about anyway?" Please tell me how to deal with this problem. When I see other kids carry on conversations with their fathers I get very unhappy.—IGNORED DEAR IGNORED: Accept toe fact that your father is no com municator- and never not going you'd better change your attitude. I feel sorry for a man who is so walled off from his children that he can't even speak to them. And one day I hope you will understand how ead this is and that your resentment will sion. •probably never was will be. You are to change him so DEAR ANN: I feel like I've been hit , by a 10-ton .truck. Please help me to understand What has happened to me. ; Peter and I went together for nearly three years. We are not teen-agers—far from it. I am 25, Peter Is 27. For the past two years I dated him and no one else. So far as I know, he was completely faithful to me also. Last February he gave me a diamond. We planned to be married in August. We've been apartment hunting and made honeymoon plans: I've been buying linens and china. Last night after dinner I felt something caught between by two front teeth. I took a tooth pick and tried to dislodge what must have been a piece of chicken, Peter suddenly jumped out of his chair and said, "The wedding is off! I could never marry a woman whose manners are so poor that she would use a toothpick in my pres ence." He then launched into a tirade about my upbringing and how all of a sudden he saW me as I really am—uncouth, coarse, vulgar and "no lady!" I burst into tears, handed him his ring and he left. Please help me understand. I am in a state of shock. WILTED ORANGE BLOSSOMS DEAR WILTED: A romance that could be felled by a toothpick wasn't much in the first place. It should be obvious, even in your stateof shriek,-that Peter used the tooth] turn to compas as an excuse "•$> craw] put. of toe commitment. Accept the fact that he lacks the inaturity for marriage aiid consider yourself lucky to bV'iid of;him. • MIRROR OF YOUtt MIND By JOHN CONWELL Is It foolish for » woman to keep her age a secret?

Can you offer a solution? —ULCERS SOUTHERN STYLE DEAR ULCERS: A husband who is so childish that he cannot stand being excluded from anything—even a routine telephone conversation—should be dealt with on the 10-year-old evel at which he operates. Keep a notepad and a pencil by the telephone.

Due to the lowering of toe river level, toe current was the ointment fly-of-the-day. Some of the women said it was rough current; some said it was heavy current; and one said "a weird currenfrso little wind" suggesting more current (against you) than wind.

The lady mariners bore in mind that Page 3, Chapter One of a familiar racing Bible says "Fore-and-aft balance do for the speed of a boat what posture and carriage do for the glamour of other ladies," and hoped that a few rules of thumb (of their husbands) had rubbed off (or washed off) onto them. A good breeze played onto the shore, carrying back an occasional almost sotto voce "Starboard" call, laughably contrasting to the customary franctlc shouts during a man- The silken • snared skippers were mindful of toe four warning blasts of a towboat long be'of* they could read the red letters that spelled Ingram Barge Ci; and the five insistent final blasts served to vacate the channel waters occupied by fledgling femme fatales. flurrying eto assist Thistl No. 1044 paddling dockward, Its skipper's husband enthused, 'Did you see how Janle finished?
