Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. DEAR ANN LADDERS: My boyfriend is 24 and so am I. We have been engaged three times in tire last four years. When Hie time comes lo set the date, Die gels sick or some- thing. This morning we were to mail the invitations and Ike said he wasn't sure he wanted to get married and needed "more time.1' Tho last disappointment upset me terribly. I slill see him and am willing to give him another chance, but certain mem- bers of my family are bugging me. They say Dee is stringing along, that he is selfish and insincere. I'm on the verge o[ breaking oft relations Kith both my parents and my sisters. They should be giving me hope and encouragement instead of undermining my confidence in Ike. Do you agree? Please answer, Ann, I want Ihem to sec Confidence DEAR NEEDING: I agree you should definitely break off relations. But not with your family. It's Ike who ought lo be ditched. Should you manage to bludgeon him into mar- riage one of these days, you'll regret it. The guy is bonkers. DEAH ANN LANDERS: As I was walking along a busy downtown street, I noticed a woman (no lady) ahead of me, screaming at her child to walk faster. The lillle girl was no more lhan lliree years old. The mother threatened to kick the child lo the nest bus stop if shs didn't hurry up. Then the mother proceeded to hit the youngster on the head with her purse. As if (hat wasn't enough she literally kicked the little girl in the backside, causing her to stumble. The poor little tiling dirtied her while slockings when she fell. Her mother gave her a hard slap across Ihc cheek for being clumsy. Buy Lhis time I was furious. I hurried to catch up with lliem so that 1 might give the mother a look of disapproval, but slie ignored me. By then I was nearing the parking lot and decided to go to my car and forget the incident. But somehow I can't get it out of my mind. I keep seeing that small child being abused by an insensitive, bully of o mother. What should I have done? Is it proper for n stranger to in terfere in a faanily matter? Please comment. Gen- tleman DEAR GENTLEMAN: That was more lhan a family mat- ter. It was a case of public injustice and cruelty. Each of us has a responsibility lo speak out when wo witness bru- tality. You should have lold the mother lliat you were sure she didn't realize how hard she was hitting the little girl, and in Ihe interest of her own peace of mind as well as the child's mental health, she should get some counselling, DEAH ANN LANDERS: I'm a travelling man and an invet- erate newspaper reader. Your column is a must for me and I read it all over the country. Sometimes 1 read it twice a day I'm on the road. This is what I am writing about. Can you solve a riddle for me? Recently T was in Detroit and caught you In the Free Press. Tlie column that morning was about a young guy who couldn't urinate unless he was alone. He was very worried because lie was about to be inducted into the Army and he know he'd never have and privacy there. TJiaf same morning I flew to Boston from Detroit and picked up the Herald-Tra- veler nl the hotel. I read tho same column I had read in Ihc Detroit paper, but the language was different. It didn't say anything alxnit the guy's inability to urinate. It said lie was afraid to go to the bathroom. Do you write different answers [or certain papers? Please Road Kal DEAR ROAD: The very same column is sent to all client p.'ipers. Each eclilor handles- it as he sees fit. II might be that j nobody in Boston urinates. Tliey only go to Ihe bathroom.
