Now I'm in a lulu myself. I have been dating a great young guy (age He wants tn marrv me and I have said yes. Three weeks ago I met nis moment our I felt a strong attracto, Senior has everything my boyfried has only more. Hes better looking, more polished, more mature, and more ex- cittog I knew from the moment he looked at me that some- thrng clicked, this man is 48 years oM, twice divorced and now "at liberty." I am 22 but I've lived a lot. And now I must tell you the whole truth. Senior and I have been seeing each other, strictly on the Q.T., of course. I think we are in love. The only thing that bothers me is that his last wife was a 21-year-old girl his son had been dating. Junior knows I'm seeing somebody but he doesnt know who. He now seems very juvenile and I'm going to break up with him regardless. What are my chances for happiness with Senior? DEAR FLY: About the same as a snowflake in Tahiti. Remember there's no fool like an old fool unless its a young fool like you. This situation has all the elements of a Peruvian earthquake. My advice is to unwind as fast as possible. And don't schedule any more father-son banqucsts. DEAR AKN LANDERS: I am 40. My wife is 38. We have been married 20 years. Our children are 17, 15, and 13. I've been a good provider, a good father and a good husband in that order. My wife and I have devoted our lives to our children and we were looking forward to the day when there would be just the two of us. We've always wanted to travel and have a little fun. Last month when our youngest boy turned 13 our goal was in sight. Another two years and he'd be off to prep school and we'd be free. I felt ten years younger just thinking about it! Just as I was making plans to have a vasectomy, my wife announced that she had seen the doctor and he told her die is pregnant. I asked her to have an abortion. She re- fused. We got into an argument and now she isn't speaking to me. I think she is happy about this pregnancy. In fact, I have a. sneaking suspicion she got this way on purpose. The prospect of being tied down until I am nearly 60 de- presses me. The way I see it, either my wife has an abortion or I get a divorce. When I told her to take her choice she didn't believe I was I am. I realize this is an extreme measure but I can't face raising another child. I'd like your honest opinion. The Brink DEAR ON: My honest opinion is that you are either off your rocker or an 18 Carat Heel. Maybe both. Your wife did not get pregnant by herself. If she wants to have this baby you have no right to ask ner to have an abortion. She is the one who must carry the child, deliver it, and care for it. The least you can do is give her a full measure of emotional support. My advice is to stop acting like a jack- ass and accept this fourth child with DEAR ANN LANDERS: Several days ago, I ran into a fellow I dated a few times when I was in high school. We are now both 23. I am not married. Bud is. In fact he has two small children. I was immensely attracted to Bud when we were in school but he didn't seem to go for me. When we met in the supermarket he was knocked out by my looks, my figure, the whole bit. He said he'd lova to see me again, but he made it plain he couldn't take me out publicly. He'd like to come to my place and see me "quietly." It seems he mar- ried the "wrong" girl. His wife is unresponsive and cold. He needs someone who can give his life meaning. I am dating several fellows but no one seriously. (My true love was killed in 1968, Vietnam.) I'm not promiscuous but I do have a yen for this old flame. I guess I really feel sorry for him. He is miserable and he wants me. Would it be wrong? DEAR VUL: We both know what you can do for HIM, but what can he do for you? For openers: He can take up a lot of your time. And he's sure to improve your cooking and double your grocery bill because you'll be fixing little suppers trying out new recipes. While you "give his life meaning" you'll be passing up opportunities to date single fellows. And let's not overlook the possibility that he might dump his wife and marry you. You would then have the privilege of helping him with alimony and support money for the children. And don't forget the guilt (both yours and Suddenly, when it's legal, you'll discover that it isn't nearly so exciting as you thought it would be.

But then there's Dr. Amis Freiberg, Latvian born, who. screens his patients carefully before operating if he oper- ates at all. If he decides a patient is psy- chologically sound, he warns placement of burned SKin, a precise and delicate operation during which often the only consideration is keeping the pa- tient alive while usable skin grows again on a spot from which it had been grafted.

Knowing how important prop- erly fitting shoes are to the comfort of the child as well as his years of adulthood under- lines the importance of the job to any mother. So little infor- mation about, how to buy them is available that it is a frus- trating job, too. The problem is greatly sim- plified at a store specializing in children's shoes. Here there is usuallv a record kept of the child's size and date of sale of a pair of shoes. Every three months a notice is sent to the parents to check the child's shoes for size. A reliable sales person will not sell a new pair of shoes unless the old pair really are too small. Mothers with many pairs of feet to shoe or with limited in- come must buy at bargain counters. What should, she know to ensure a safe fitting? Step I. Are the child's pres- ent shoes satisfactory? K the shoe is too small it probably shows a scuff mark on the area of the big toe, indicating how close the toe is to the end of the shoe. Feel inside the shoes. A worn lining in the toe indi- cates tint the shoes are too short. Step 2. Ask the sales person to measure both feet while the child is sitting and standing; ie both width and length of each foot.

The latter require ighter fitting to keep on so here is less growth room. The oxford with the 4 or 5 eyelets pve best fit and more arch support, even better than the 2 or 3 eyelets. Step 4. Check the fit of the shoe on the child while he is sliding, walking and seated. The ball of the foot, that is the widest part of the foot should be at the widest part ol he shoe. Determine whether ;his is so by feeling along the side of the foot while the child is standing in the shoes. Cheek the height of the shoe at the anklebone. The shoe must not rub on the anklebone If the shoes are only slightly high here, then it can be cor- rected by'putting a small pa< under the shoe lining in the hee' to raise the foot. Allow length in the shoe for growth of the child's foot. Hal an inch between the toes anc the end of the shoe is abou right for an oxford. Check the 1 a c i n g of an ox ford. The gap between the twc sides of a shoe under the lac ing should be equal all along When the sides come together at the top of the lacing am are apart at the bottom, th shoe is too large. When th sides are further apart at th top, the shoe is too narrow a the instep. There are a couple of genera observations about children' shoes that should be consider ed. Orthopedic shoes should no be worn without the recommen dation of a specialist. A child' foot bones are so soft that im properly fitting shoes can d great harm.
