Ann Landers Just JOGGER'S for Women and Children white with blue trim or blue with red trim CHILDREN'S SHOES by Buster Brown and Sinq Douze Joe GREEN'S SHOES Downtown en Sixth StrMt it's sandal Thursdays till p.m. Dear Ann I was touched by that letter from the wheelchair age who had only had three dates in her life. I'd like to say something to all the single men who read your column. If you are fed up with chicks who go to bed with a different guy every if you want a girl who will thrill .at a kiss on the cheek and an arm around her if you want someone who will be adoring and start looking for a girl in a wheelchair. She will probably be a gal who has sat home night after night hoping and praying for a Prince Charming to enter her life. She is sure to appreciate you like no other because she has suffered pain and endured a great deal of loneliness. She has a world of love to give because she has stored it up for years. And I can promise she won't ditch you for someone else. As far as sex is the wheelchair girl has plenty to give and she'll be more responsive than other women because your affection and attention will mean the world to her. After 20 years with my wheelchair girl I wouldn't trade her for Hollywood's most gorgeous movie queen. Mr. Lucky Dear Mr. Thank you for a beautiful letter. You've given some sensible advice. I hope somebody out there takes it. Here's more on the same subject. Dear Ann The letter from the girl in the wheelchair prompted me to write my first lelter to a newspaper. I am the mother of an attractive young son who is also in a wheelchair. He plans to go to law school when he completes his undergraduate studies. His grades have always been excellent and he is such a sweet and gentle person. Before he had the which paralyzed him from the waist he was an outstanding loved to dance and play tennis. When I read the letter from the wheelchair girl I thought of my son. and all the other wheelchair boys who also need love and affection. Although my boy has had a male attendant from the day he left the he needs the companionship and intimacy that only a woman can give. I hope the young women who read your column will give some thought to the positive aspects of marrying a man in a wheelchair. Of it's not as easy as marrying a man with two good but the rewards are sure to be tremendous. Needless to say it would take an extraordinary girl to see but I'm sure there are many such girls around. I mu cnn finrlc rtnp His mother Dear So do I. Thank you for writing. Dear Ann You could use some lessons in English grammar. The word is a noun. So why do you tack on it and handle it as a Maybe the phrase is a but we didn't hear it when we lived there. We did hear a lot of dems and however. A person who likes to brag about her 54 million daily ought to improve her English. Graduate of U.C.L.A. Dear I first heard the term luck from a highly literate gentleman part-time who also went to UCLA. I phoned him long distance about your letter and he said you should wise up. Dear Ann My eyes were filled with tears when I read that letter signed Phone Is Still it was from the mother who said she'd love to be a guest at her daughter or daughter-in-law's table just to see what it felt like. For years everyone piled in on good old Mom and Dad. They brought their kids and just assumed the grandparents were thrilled to have them. Of the old folks loved their children and but why is grandma that the daughter never trhought to invite THEM to be And then all those snotty girls wrote in to tell you WHY they never invited their parents or in-laws for dinner. talk too much about the spoil our makes too many suggestions on how I could have done the meat Three months ago today I drove my 51 year-old mother to the hospital. She was dying from a pulmonary embolism. Two years before my 52-yea'r-old father died of lung cancer. What I wouldn't give to have them over to dinner this evening. They were wonderful parents and I adored them. But they died much too yoiung. I have no guilt. I did everything I could to bring them happiness. Now all I have is an empty feeling in my heart that place Mom and Dad used to fill. Time For Love Dear Thank you for a letter that is sure to create a little discomfort among some young marrieds.

Frolkis said man is pro- grammed by nature for a life span of this duration but it is reduced by changes in the cardio-vascular and nervous system brought on by his mode of life. SOLUTION REMOTE Work in the institute shows that so far as man is con- cerned changes connected with aging occur first of all in the heart and the nervous sys- tem.

It has been found at Kiev that the nuclei of the hypothalamus do not age uniformly. This discrepancy leads to some hormones falling and others rising in old age. The result is a drop in the depend- ability of all systems.
