I did everything under the sun to get him: to get help. It was no use. When I saw it was hopeless, I went for counselling. My minister advised me to leave him before he killed me. Our divorce was final in June. I didn't ask for alimony or even a settlement. I am in good health and can support myself. (We had no children.) Last night my former mother-in-law telephoned to say they bad bad a family conference to decide whether or not I had a right to keep the paintings and jewelry they had given me for engagement and wedding gifts. (Family heirlooms.) I was asked to return everything "like a lady." I was shocked and said I'd think about it. The paintings and jewelry are worth about $15,000. I feel I am entitled to them. This is not a matter of sentiment, but practicality. They might be a good source of income some day. What do you say, Ann? -Ella DEAR ELLA: The gifts are yours and you are under no obligation to return them. Inform your mother-in-law that if you should decide to sell them the family will have an opportunity to buy the paintings and jewelry before they are offered elsewhere. If you have trouble getting along with your parents . . . if you can't get them to let you live your own life, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Bugged By Parents? How To Get. More Freedom." Send 50 cents in coin with your request and a long, stamped self-addressed envelope.

Lawrence of Ottawa, chairman of the Canadian Toy Testing Council. Recently the mother of four travelled with her husband, who is an Ontario cabinet minister, to Vienna to take part in an international consumer conference sponsored by the International Organization of Consumers Unions. "I tried to point out while In Vienna that to regard the manufacturers as villains is not the way to improve the situation," she said in an interview. "In order to get anywhere we must have their goodwill." Her own organization, a nonprofit group dedicated to im- BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th St. "C" N.

Sorry No One Under 16 Years of Age Allowed proving the quality and safety of toys, has achieved a rapport with manufacturers it deals with. They provide the council with toys to test and frequently act on its suggestions. The Canadian Toy Testing Council, a volunteer group of Ottawa women including teachers, scientists and social workers, also operates on an annual budget provided by the Cana- dian Toy Manufacturers Association. Mrs. Lawrence said discussion at the Vienna conference included the question of "how consumers could get more teeth." Although toys were not discussed specifically, she was able to profit from the testing programs of other products. Workshops included political topics as well as consumer edu- cation and standards and testing. Mrs. Lawrence chose to attend those dealing with the testing and assigning of standards to products. "I found a generally hostik attitude to manufacturers at tho conference, as is common in many consumer associations," she said. "Most of these groups begin because someone is angry about a particular product.
