Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAH ANN LAf DEHS: I am 24. I spent the first 21 years ot my life in total hell because of my father. He ifc menatlly split personality. 1 never knew when he would turn from a sweet, lovable person to a cruel, savage beast. He used to hit my mother for no reason, throw things at me, and. I'm sure he tortured our pets although no one could ever prove it. H's a miracle that 1 didn't lose my mind when my mother died of leukemia. 1 was 17 at the time. I was M when I met It was almost a story-book romance the way he rescued !ne from a lunatic a true knight in shining armor. We've been married nearly three years and have a dear little girl. The problem is that my mother-in-law keeps asking why I don't invite my father over for Sunday supper. She can't understand why 1 don'l include him in family or social affairs. Ann, I simply can't bring my- self to tell her the truth. I'm scared to death of my father. He makes me physically ill. I don't want to be around him on have him near my little family. Lately my mother-in-law has' has been pressing. Please tell me lo say lo her. 1 hate lo be disloyal or sound dramatic. Help me please, In Nashville DEAR B.: You do not your mother-in-law an explana- tion. Simply evade the issue and change the subject. If she insists, simply tell her you have your reasons and you'd rather not discuss it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've never read a letter like this in your column. It's time I did. A lot of people need educating. I am going into my sixth month of pregnancy. I am still working and intend to continue to work for another two months if I can hold out that long. 1 need the money. This advice is for the people I work with: I do not need to be told how pale and tired 1 look. 1 feel like a dishrag and I know I look like one. I don't need to be told that I wear my wig a lot and that my own hair, when it is fixed, looks much bctler. It's easy to wear a wig and it's hard to wash my hair and set it at night after work. I don't need to hear any more cute remarks such as, "If you've got three months to go, you'll never fit into the elevator." 1 have listened good naturedly and repeatedly to all the Iwflow and crude jokes about pregnant women. They weren't very funny the first time. I don't need to be asked how we can afford a baby ami how come I got pregnant so soon. We didn't plan it this way, but we are glad now and it doesn't help much when people put such questions to me. Print this, Up Front Counts A Lot DEAH WHAT'S UP: Keep your sense of humor, Petunia. It will see you through when everything else goes belly if you will pardon the expression. There is a big difference between cold and cool. Ann Landers shows you how to play it cool without freezing peo- ple out in her booklet "Teen-Age Ways To Cool It."
