-Wednesday, December J, 1971 THE LETHBBIDGE HERAID 17 Ann Landers Poisoning statistics show kitchen can be dangerous DEAR ANN I ANDERS: Our 14-year-old ibuRhlrr BUly looked depressed and seemed unsually quiet all ihrough .tarn She at" almost nothing. I knew something was wrong and I hoped she'd tell me. She didn't, so ai bedtime I went to her roomWl asked what was the mate. She broke down and confessed tearfully that she had done a terrible Hung She started a rumor that a girl in her class who bad been absent for two weeks was away having an abortion. Tire absent girl returned today and someone told her about "the rumor. She became so ill she had to be taken home. Betty is a wreck. She says she doesn't know why she did it. She will do anything to get it off her conscience. What CAN do' You know how hard it is to put down a false rumor once it gels started. Please advise. Need Counsel DEAR N.C.: There is only one way to get this matter straightened around. Betty should go at once to the girl and her parents, confess that it was she who started the rumor and ask them if they can possibly forgive her. She should then go to each person to whom she told the lie and confess that she made up the story. I agree, false rumors die hard- because people who slart them rarely have the courage to confess. I hope your daughter learned a lesson that will stay with her the rest of her life. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a good cook but I'm no ma- gician. I can't wave a magic wand over a four-pound roast and make it big enough for a family of six plus three extra people. Why can't my husband get this through iiis lead? Clyde works for a big company and someone is always in town, either a customer or a purchasing agent. He also has a couple of free loading brothers who have a habit of dropping by Clyde's office just as he is leaving for home. They tag along and of course I have to ask them to cat with us. What else can I do at six o'clock? When it's the brothers I open up another can of beans and add more potatoes to tha hash, but when it's a customer or a purchasing agent I have to give the kids peanut butter sandwiches in the kitchen. I think this is very unfair. Is it unreasonable to ask a husband to phone first? Even a half hour's notice would help It would at leas', give me a chance to comb my hair. I've asked hin: a dozen times. Maybe if lie sees himself in the paper he'll get the message. Thanks, friend. Sue-Prized DEAR SUE: From now on put the burden on Clyde. Tell him if he brings home unexpected guests you aren't going to do one Uiing different the meal will be served as planned, and (lie kids will stay at the table. No apologies, either. Just a small announcement, "Smaller portions, even-body. We have unexpected guests." But about your hair, Kiddo. You COULD comb it just for HIM, couldn't you?
