Some of the ex- perts in the behavioral sciences believe heart attacks may be a similar method of "ending it but of course, the motivation is much more subtle and subconscious. My father is a railroad engineer. When one of the men he was working with hit a car with a woman and children in it, he really went to pieces. He kept talking about how he could see that woman and those kids, their heads sticking out of windows while their mother tried to start the car that was stalled on the tracks. That engineer could talk of nothing else for days and then he had a fatal heart attack. Dad says he really grieved himself to death. Please, Ann, print this letter. You ran one a few weeks ago about how people try to race the train, go through signals and lights, and ignore all warnings. Another letter might serve to remind them as you said, "When you win, you win a few seconds When you lose, you lose your life." Daughter Of A Railroad Man Dear Daughter: Here it is and I hope it will serve as a reminder. Dear Ann Landers: This is the THIRD time I have written to you but this time I'm going to mail the letter. I have a serious problem It's me or should I say my rotten, uncontrollable temper. I flare up over nothing and say things I regret the minute the words are out of my mouth. I feel alone, and it's no wonder, the way I treat people. I seem to take out my meanness on those I love most. Then they stay away from me and I can't blame them. Nobody wants to be ripped to pieces. I'm still in high school and afraid of what my life will be like when I go to college. I want so much to get along with people but I just can't control my ugly mouth. Please Ann, help me. I'll do whatever you say. Big Mouth Dear Friend: A problem recognized is a problem half solved. At least you know what is wrong and you are eager to do something about it. There's a great deal of anger and hostility that needs to come out but in ways that won't hurt you or others. I suggest counselling. When you are able to talk to a professional someone you trust on a continuing basis, you'll find that you.won't blow up at those you love because you'll have rid yourself of the pent-up emotions. Get going and good luck to you. Dear Ann Landers: I want to comment on the 14 year old boy who had complaints about his position as the "youngest" child because I'm one of those lucky kids. I am 17 and have two sisters ahead of me I can see both the faults and the good points in my sisters I watch for their characteristics in myself. I sit back and learn from their ex- periences. I never worry about teachers who dread having "another one of the family." I hope every "youngest child" will give a thought to how lucky he is to have an ex- ample to follow. Last But Not Least Dear Last: Refreshing to receive a letter so full of ad- miration for older sisters Thanks for a cheerful little earful. Groom deported hour after airport marriage TORONTO (CP) Luis and Cecilia Torres had only one hour of married life together after an airport wedding when the groom was deported to his native Equador for entering Canada illegally. Immigration officials arrested Torres last week for illegal entry two years ago, leaving the young couple with only shattered hopes they would be able to use the marriage licence they obtained before the arrest. But the officials allowed the couple to marry anyway, leav- ing Torres with increased chances to be admitted to Canada now that he has a relative here. The Torres' lawyer, Mendell Green, said Torres' chances of being granted immigrant status would have .been almost nil if the officials had not arranged a short marriage ceremony in the departure lounge of Toronto International Airport. Mrs. Torres, who came to Canada illegally but gave herself up during the immigration amnesty in 1973, will spend her first married days alone awaiting the birth of a baby in three months. PETER G.

(CP) Would you consider giving a male friend a mouse ranch that he can stock himself? It's not a gag. It's one of the almost-incredible Christinas suggestions from the famed Nieman Marcus store here. Every year people who tnow about this specialty store await with proverbial bated breath for the NM Christmas catalogue. It never fails them. There are always a few unbelievable gift sug- gestions. Take the Mouse Ranch, for example. It's called the N- Bar-M Mouse Ranch. It's a king-sized (48-36-18 inches) spread with upper and lower pastures, a corral, feed barn, -all in clear acrylic. The ranch sells for And the store will probably sell several. They usually sell at least a few of their odd-ball ideas. Another is a nickel-plated penguin ice bucket priced at But that isn't the gim- mick. The store will "fill him with custom-chopped Antarc- tic ice, hand carried from an authentic south polar ice- berg." Travel for the messe- nger there and return witn tne ice chips packed in dry ice is But it's the His and Her's that have made Neiman Mar- cus so well known for sheer Christmas lunacy. The store has offered His and Her's aeroplanes, bathtubs, genuine Chinese junks, submarines and camels. This year its His and Her's of step-son to a hovercraft. It's a pleasure craft on a cushion of air six to eight inches off the ground or water. Assembled, carpeted and unholstered, it's a Christmas gift. But the store does stock REMIND DOCTORS HALIFAX (CP) The Medical Society of Nova Scotia has promised in an an- nual report to remind its members of their obligation to make information on contraception and steriliza- tion readily available to all who seek it. serious Christmas gifts too. A year-round popular item is the chiffon handkerchief rolled rose arranged as a nosegay or rolled to form an umbrella with handle For men there's an caftan made of shahtoosh, the rarest and most precious fibre in the world, from the ibex goat in Kashmir. One goat yields only about 12 ounces a year. There's a sterling silver section with 15 gifts of pil- lboxes, roller skate key, money clasp and even a toothpick. And at the other ex- treme is a watch for It's all diamonds. Just off the press is the book Minding the Store, written by Stanley Marcus, in which he tells how his father, Herbert, his Aunt Carrie and her hus- band A. L. Neiman started. In 1905 they opened a sales promotion business, a new idea at the time. It was so successful that in two years they had two offers to buy. One was for which they took. Financially they should have accepted the sec- ond. As Stanley Marcus says: "We have sometimes said that Neiman Marcus was founded on bad business judg- ment." The other offer was a franchise for a new bottled soft drink called Coca-Cola. The three partners opened the first store, in Dallas, in 1907. Originally it was a luxury store only but through the years it has added moderate priced merchan- dise. Their eighth store is in Washington, D.C. Next year they plan to open in Chicago and California.
