Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Very often when people write for advice you suggest that they seek counselling or psy- chiatric help. What did peo- ple do before counsellors did such a thriving business? What did mixed-up married people do before psychiatrists hung out their shingles and charged exorbitant rates for the 40-minute hour? Tranquilizers and booze are a way of life for millions. Many people were started down that road by a coun- sellor or a psychiatrist who suggested "a little someihing" to get over a "crisis.'1 I am 66 years old and I cannot remember a time when there were so many mixed-up people in the world, not to mention broken mar- riages. What, pray tell, did people do before this golden age of therapy? Any an- swers? No Jackass From Jacksonville DEAR JACK: They suffer- DEAR ANN LANDERS- Here's an idea for "Mixed Up Grandma'' whose grandchil- dren are about to have their birthdays changed because their mother is exhausted from putting on two birthday parties plus a Christmas din- ner, all within a three-week period Our son's birthday is also in December. Christmas was always a busy time for me and it was hard to do justice to the boy's special event. in silence, went to doctors with their ulcers and mi- graine headaches, put up with abuse and brutality, lived through hell and kept their mouths shut. Thank the good Lord we now have alterna- tives. Millions of people have been restored to lives of use- fulness and productivity be- cause they were able to talk about their fears and anxie- ties. Many marriages have been saved through counsel- ling and perhaps just as many have been termintated because after some joint dis- ci-ssions the situation was deemed hopeless Counselling and therapy do not help everyone, but they do work for many. Witness the fact that thousands of people have written to thank me for urging them to seek professional help. In fact. I just finished reading a letter that said. "'My psychiatrist saved my life. God bless you for sending me to him.'' Last year I hit on a bright idea a "Half-Time Party." On June 10 when the boy was six and a half, we had a party to celebrate the occa- sion It out beautiful- ly and I plan to keep doing it. Happy DEAR WHAT- In behalf of "Mixed Up Grandma" I thank you for a sensible solu- tion to a knotty problem.

NEW YORK (AP) The high cost of gold on the Eu- ropean exchanges doesn't mean you'll pay more for that bauble at Tiffany's or get more if you decide to sell some old jewelry. Not yet, anyway A check of New York refi- ners, manufacturers and retai- lers showed here that the price of gold jewelry generally depends on long-term costs, not short-term fluctuations in the market.
