Until last year the lite of the girls was bleak, their future un- certain. A fantastic outpouring of human kindness has per- haps changed their lives for- ever. Tile girls who, .soon will be five years old, are Maria de Jesus, Maria de la Luz, Maria Elena and Maria Candelaria, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Pablo Ortiz. They live in a ce- ment three-room house near Chavarria with their three brothers and a younger sister. The children almost never had milk to drink, there usually wasn't enough food to go around, and their father's earn- ings of 817 pesos or a month gave little hope (or a bette.' life. Then an Associated Press story of their plight was pub- lished in Canada and the United States last December. Many hearts and purses were opened and family life at the Ortiz home changed. Rich and poor, healthy and sick, old and young deluged the family with words of kindness, their way to this small village where five girls were born on a dirt floor by candlelight the night of Feb. 2, 1967 one of the girls died at birth. One of President Luis Ech- everria's aides look personal charge and arranged for the gifts' entry without duty. Tlie girl's' father has made good use of the gilts. The leaking roof has been re- placed by a thick cement slab. An extra room has been added. There's gas for the stove, end- ing Mrs. Ortiz' daily chore of preparing meals over an open fire outside the house.

NORTH PHONE 328-4536 DEAR ANN LANDERS: Kcr as far back as T can re- member I've never been able to get my parents to give me a straight answer. When 1 ask Mom if 1 can go somewhere she says, "Talk lo your father." Then when I ask him lie says, ''It's up to your mother." I go back to her and she says. "We'll see." Three days ago I asked for permission to go to a football game 40 miles from here. My folks couldn't decide and now my place in the car is no longer available. I asked my dad straight away why he didn't say yes or no. He said, "If 1 sav yes ii looks like I'm too permissive. If I say no it lonks'like I'm too rigid, so I stay in the middle." I think it's a rotten shame that I have to be a nervous wreck because my folks don't have the guts to say yes or no. Please express your views. I'll bet there are loads of teen-agers who have the same problem. and Fed Up DEAR W. AND F.: I, too, think it's a rotten shame that a teen-ager has to be a nervous wreck because his parents don't have the guts to say yes or no. Thanks for finding just the right words. DEAR ANN LANDERS: May I comment, please, on lira letter from the woman who observed that frequently, after a couple adepts a baby, the woman becomes pregnant. She said it is downright shattering, the foolish things people say to a couple who has adopted and then finds out they will have a natural child. Her examples were eye-openers. I was reminded of a lovely statement attributed to the late Daniel A. Poling of UK Christian Herald magazine. He said with a twinkle, "Two of our four children are adopted. I forgot which ones they arc." Mother DEAR 0.: That lovely line reflects the sentiments of mil- lions of adoptive parents. Thanks for passing it along.
