Sure, you have and what's more, you can have one. in the time it takes to sew it up and stuff it with foam. Stitched-and-stuffed fur- niture is fast replacing at- tic castoff in the plush pads of the swinging singles. And even more settled types are stitching-and-stuffing chairs, sofas and evtn playpens for summer cottages and teen- age rooms. If you're considering a stuffed-furniture project, don't start till you read these hints from the sewing experts at DuPont. In addition to sewing information, they've even prepared a cost breakdown, so you'll know how much your red playpen will set you back.

Some spenders think they have a bargain, even though it would take the average British worker three years or more to earn this kind of money. The reason is in- flation. Next year "coming will cost even more. ''People have decided to spend rather than says Peter Townend. social editor of the Taller, a magazine which keeps an eye on how the rich live. At the moment, it seems, cost is no object.

She wrote 400 invitations in all to the lavish ball at one of her family's three Surrey, near London, set in 80 acres of parkland. This kind of champagne dinner dance could easily cost her father, property developer Michael Williams. or more. That is only the beginning. The father of the deb can also expect to shell out an- other (89.600) for his daughter's expenses during the rest of the season.

Recently I had an experience that taught me plenty. Our 12-year-old son told me the old man next door was a terrible person, that yelled at the kids in the neighborhood for nothing and scared them half to death. My first inclination was to tell Buddy the old man was probably off his rocker and to stay away from him. My better judgement took over and I decided to go over and speak to the neighbor. I discovered the old gentleman was a dear person who likes children but was having a problem with their dogs. Being all alone, his greatest pleasure in life is his little garden. The neighborhood dogs had been running through his property and digging up his precious plants. It wasn't the kids he was yelling at. but the dogs trying to keep them off his place. When mothers hear complaints they should investigate not with a chip on the shoulder, but in a friendly manner and find out what's going on. Now Buddy and the old gentleman are good friends and the boy is helping to keep the neighborhood dogs out of the old man's garden. W. Dear J.: You've just given some very good advice. Thanks for sitting in my seat on this one. Dear Ann Landers: I have seen letters in your column about "Cooper's Droop." snoring and sloppy housekeepers. and what I am WeeWhimsv writing about is just as important and I hope you will print it. I am taking Latin Three in high school. There are exactly seven students in the class. Because so few students want to take Latin they had to combine Latin Three and Latin Four. Why aren't more kids interested? I find it very much alive. I admit Latin is difficult, but so are chemistry and algebra and the attendance is h'igh in these courses. My knowledge of Latin has helped me do better in English grammar and I scored very high in a national test in vocabulary because I knew Latin. Please say a few words to encourage more students to take this great subject. Someone has to give them a push. Summus Amor? Dear Roma: If you want a personal testimonial from me. here it is. I didn't take Latin in high school and I can truthfully say it was one of the dumbest decisions I ever made. I regret it to this day.
