I have always admired this young woman and marvelled at the way she handles her growing family. The children gel along beautifully. They are co-operalive and mannerly. Yesterday, I learned her secret. She told me she makes it a point to spend at least ten minutes each day engaged in a personal conversation with each child. This makes them feel "visible." It adds to their self-esteem and reduces the sibling rivalry that most children grow up with. A child doesn't resent a brother or sister who gets parental attention If he gels his share. Will you please find room in your column for this little nugget, Ann Lady Across The Road DEAR LADY: Here's the nugget and my thanks for al- lowing me to put it in a showcase for other mothers to see. If every mother who reads your letter will make a special effort lo act on your suggestion today, I'll bet they'll be aslott ished at the results. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read the letter from tin girl who signed herself "Chickadee" and it's after midnight but I won't sleep tonight unless I write her this letter. She said her fiance has a hot temper, is very suspicious and constantly checking and accusing her of everything under the sun. She closed by saying she can't live with or without him. I pray that Chickadee will take your advice and ditch the bum. If she has a brain in her head she'll run for lier life in the opposite direction. It may hurt for awhile but better to have a few weeks (or months) of agony than a lifetime of it. Hot tempers don't fade. They get hotter. I know what I am talking about, because I married the same kind of lunatic and I have the scars lo prove it. So many girls Ihink they are going to make a man over after they are married bul it never works oul that way. I realize this is a pretty tired tune I'm singing, but some people have to hear something times before it soaks in. So, I, say lo all you Chickadees out there, call me a bore, but do your- selves a favor and listen. Learned The Hary Way. DEAR LEARNED; Here's your letter and if just one per- son gets the message it was worth staying up an extra 30 minutes to write. TORONTO (CPt Leather continues to be a fashion favor- ite this fall. It been around a long lime. Early man clothed him- self in skins. Leather has been used for shoes and belts for cen- turies, But leather for fashiona- ble garments is a modern idea. Through the middle ages in Eu- rope it was the servants and soldiers, not the nobles, who wore leather garments. The no- bility used leather for elegant boots, saddles and cloaks. They preferred to wear silks, satins, velvets and furs. New tanning processes in the 18th century changed all this. Albert B. Cook, Barrie, Onl., president of the Tanners' Asso- oiation of Canada, says: "Leather now is established throughout the world as a ver- satile fashion material with a prestige image." Cod gir title irane I wins DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm probably old enough to be your mother but 1 am coming to you for advice because you seem to have good judgement. I am a widow who recenlly met. another nice woman with- out a husband. We have gone to the movies together and have had dinner in one another's homes and in restaurants. The problem is her table manners. They are atrocious. Tliis otherwise genteel woman uses her thumb as a pusher, eats stewed chicken with her hands, drips gravy all over- the tablecloth, and frequently uses her forefinger lo dislodge food from her denlures. Al this point I become nauseated. The last time we dined out I simply did not look at her. I enjoy this woman's company but I cannot stand her table manners. Should I drop her or Sell her how I feel? Or is there a chance that I am excessively critical and intolerant? New Orleans DEAR N.O.: Tell her. If she resents it and discontinues TORONTO (CP) Carol Bancroft, 19, of Cochrane, Alta., was named Canadian dairy princess here at the Canadian At first leather entered the ashion picture in the casual icld. as men's sport jackets and then, later, as car coals. Then women took lo leather ackets and slreet coats. Finally jutter-soft suede entered the ashion world as both coats and dresses. With the advent of pantxuiLs )r women, suede added another fashion facet. Now Ihe men like smooth leather for travel and Tor casual week-ends. SUEDE FOR EVENING A couple of seasons ago, when the layered look became a lop fashion in women's clolhes, a suede vest was a smart addi- tion. This fall men have taken over this layered look too. A combination of sweater, leather or suede vest and jacket is not uncommon. The new tanning processes permit suede especially to be worked like a fabric. Conse- quently suede now is used even tor evening gowns.

If you don't tell her, you will soon become so annoyed by her grossiiess that you will eventually attack her on some other grounds and Ihe friendship will be over. DEAR ANN LANDERS: There are homes for old folks, homes for the mentally ill, homes for destitute children, and even homes for unwanted animals. But where do unwanted wives go? We must live under the same roof with husbands who don't want us. Our children have made it plain thai they have no intention of risking their marriages by having a mother-in- law around. So we live wilh men we don't love or respect while they do their own thing, which means drink too much have women on Ihe side and come home whenever they feel Being less than saints, our blood pressure goes up and our piping on both women's and men's jackets and coals.

Waterbed clientele changing SPRINGFIELD, Mass. fAP) The watcrbed started as a gimmick complete with snick- ered comments on its use and funny stories about what hap- pens when a puncture occurs. "Now (he fad is over and Ihe waterbed has started selling it- said John D. Clarke, sales manager for a Springfield wat- erbed company, "At first they were for hippies and he said, "hut now we're making inroafe into middle-class Amer- ica." "The change in our clientele has been drastic over the past said William A. Ander- son, vice-president of a local walerbed outlet. "Most of our customers used to be 18 to 22 years of age but now they are mostly bctw'een 25 and 40, in- cluding business executives of all types."
