Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I didn't care much for that letter from the stuck-up parents who were unhappy about their son who had worth' of education and decided he wanted to be a mailman. Your answer, "to each his wasn't the greatest response in the world either. My husband didn't have a college education but, as you've said so often, not everybody belongs in college. tried factory work, selling and clerking five years of it, then he made up his mind be didn't belong in business and wanted to try something altogether different. He decided to be a postman. That was 12 yeans ago and he loves it. So do I. I know exactly when he'll be home. Once he is home his time is his own. No night calls, no manuals to study, no briefcase work. Our kids know their father as a human being, not a money machine. This is more than most high-salaried execu- tives can say. The best thing about my husband's job is that It keeps him in wonderful physical condition. The walking and bemg out-of-doors has kept his weight down and his heart strong. So please, Ann Landers, don't let people look down their. noses at the postman. He's a very important man hi his com- munity and usually a happy one. Wife Of One DEAR WIFE: The postman is the second most Important man in my life. I couldn't get along without him. Here's a letter from another postman's wife. She presents a different point of view. DEAR ANN LANDERS: "To each his huh? I'll bet you get some lovely letters from wives of mail carriers who tell you how happy they are that their husbands have set hours home early, time with the kids etc. And they always mention "fresh air and exercise." I've been married to a mail carrier far 14 years. While it's a good life in some ways it's not without its draw- backs. My husband has seen plenty of rain and snow and sleet. It's nice that he nan be home at in the after- noon but how many women would like to get tip at ID the morning and fix a big breakfast? Did you know that mail pouches sometimes weigh over 40 pounds? And let's not forget the dogs. My husband was bitten twice last year once by a dog and once by a three- year-old kid who got mad because my husband didn't bring him a present. No job is all peaches and cream, so if you print one of those gung-ho letters, please print mine and give, the story balance. of The Foot Bath. DEAR PREPARER: Thanks for the balance.

BASIL'S MEN'S CLUB PETERBOROUGH, Ont. (CP) a night school course and two women have begun o produce a television series or children. Arlene Hill and Joan Manuel are taking advantage of the Pe- erborough Cable Company's ocal channel for a personal pro- ect. They are producing a pro- p-am they call Storyland, to in- roduce children to favorite books. Their show is on the cable channel every Monday morning. Mrs. Hffl is the one with the night course. She and her hus- band took a community college course on communications and the media. Otherwise, Mrs. Hill has no training or experience. She interested her friend, Mrs. Manuel, in doing set de- signs. Mrs. Manuel has no expe- rience, either. "I've never painted, but I was interested in dramatics and set painting when I was in school. I'm a natural scrounger, so I enjoy making toys and clothes for my children from odds and ends that seem to accumulate in our house." The set for The Vegetable Men by Lilian Porter included a cart made from oranges and ap- ples and driven by a mushrooip and a sailboat made of celery ami lettuce. Another set features a toy stuffed squirrel, once a hand puppet in the Hill family. STIR READING INTEREST Mrs. Hill said they spent to produce their first four shows. Mrs. Manuel added: "Be- cause we're strictly volunteers, we're not trapped by a routine or company rules. The cable people have done everything possible to help us, because so far this is the only locally pro- duced television program for kids." In each program, Mrs. Hill, the narrator, asks children to go with her in imagination through a tiny door in a brick wall to Storyland. The camera then switches to a miniature set aased on illustrations in the book she is reading. "We're hoping children will want to read other books for themselves once they realize how much fun story reading can be." The shows are shot with one camera. Background music is provided by a high school con- cert band. The women have 12 shows planned to be shown before Christmas. "After that we'll re assess and try to find out if we are reaching the children. If there's no response, we'll have to scrap the idea and maybe try some- thing else." which was 80 per cent destro ed during the Second World War under orders from Hitler.

A., Taeoma, Wash. DEAR K. A.: Why put up a tent when you've already built a house? Stenographic skills and ma- turity are a combination that many employers look for today. Stick with what you know and build from that. If your skills are a bit rusty, you can always take a refresher course to re- oil them. You'll be surprised how much you remember and in the groove. DEAR MISS BROOKFIELD: I am 45 and my husband is 48. We get along just fine and have for years. But lately there's been so much talk about marriage manuals and how-to books on sex, I wonder if we're missing something. Do you think we should buy one? J. R., Saugus, Mass. DEAR J. R.: Getting along just fine is what marriage manuals are supposed to be all about. Dr. Stephen Neiger, Senior Psy- chologist at the Toronto Psy- chiatric Hospital, says that most of the troubled couples who come to see him for coun- selling "have used three or four books on how to make love and have been so damaged by them, they're forced to seek professional help." And novelist John Fowlcs summed it up when he said: "To teach the physiology of sex without the psychology of love is to teach all about a ship except how to steer it." Of course, there are marriage manuals and mar- riage manuals. Some are reput- able; others are not. Look them over if you're curious.
