Ann Landers THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Any day now 1 expect to lose Him to Hollywood ..tHe'll probably become technical adviser for oil those Roman orgy scenes." BENEFIT SHOES LTD. 615 4TH AVE. S. PHONE 327-7300 Open Daily 9 a.m. to p.m. including Monday. Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My boyfriend is 24 and so am 1. We have been engaged three times in the last four years. When live time comes to set the dale, Ike gets sick or some- thing. This morning we were to mail the invitations and Ike said he wasn't sure he wanted to got married and needed "more time." The last disappointment upset me terribly. I still 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 of breaking off relations with 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 them to see it-Needing Confidence DEAR NEEDING: I agree you should definitely break off relations. But not with your family. It's Ike who ought to 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 j downtown street, I noticed a woman fno lady) ahead of me screaming at her child to walk faster. The Mile girl was no more than three years old. The mother threatened to kick the child to the next bus stop if she didn't hurry UD Then the mother proceeded to hit the 5-oungster on Ihe head with her purse. As if that wasn't enough she literally kicked the little girl in the backside, causing her to stumb e. The poor little thing dirtied her while stockings when she fell. Her mother gave her a hard slap across the cheek to- being clumsy. Buy this time I was furious. I hurried to catch up with them so that I might give the mother a look of disapproval, but she 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 a mother. What should I have done? Is it proper for a stranger to in terfere in a family matter? Please comment. Gen- tleman DEAR GENTLEMAN: That was more than a family mat- ter It was a case of public injustice and cruelty. Each of us "has a responsibility to speak out when we witness bru- tality You should have told the mother that you were sure she didn't realize how hard she was hitting the little girl, and in the interest of her own peace of mind as well as the child's mental health, she should get some counselling. DEAR 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 I was in Detroit and caught you in the Free Press. The column that morning was about a young guy who couldn't urinate unless he was alone. He was very worried because he was about to be inducted into the Army and he knew he'd never have and privacy there. That same morning I flew to Boston from Delroit and picked up the Herald-Tra- veler at the hotel. 1 read the same column I had read in the Detroit paper, but the language was different. It didn't say anything about the guy's inability to urinate. It said lie was afraid to go to the bathroom. Do you write different answers for certain papers? Please Road Rat DEAR ROAD: The very same column is sent to all client papers. Each editor handles- it as he sees fit. II might be that nobody in Boston urinates. They only go to the bathroom.
