Dr. Rotbstein gave birth to a baby boy, Stephen, hours later. ers DEAK ANN LANDERS: Please answer a question that has been bugging me for a long time. Why is it that when people (especially women) get plastered they want to take off their clothes? I've never seen a drunk put on anything they always seem to be unpeeling. Usually the women start by kicking off their shoes, then the belt comes off, next the earrings, headbands, stockings dresses. With men, it's suitcoats, vest, then neckties etc. Can you explain this extraordinary behavior in normally decorous people? Deviled Egg. DEAR DEV: Alcohol releases the inhibitions and distorts the judgment. Too mucu booze fools folks into believing that whatever they do is O.K. Alcohol also dilates the surface blood vessels and warms people up. The natural inclination when people get overheated is to make themselves comfortable. Some of Siese people become quite uncomfortable the following day, they have trouble remembering the pre- .vious night's activities. DEAR ANN LANDERS: May I answer Blue Monday? It coukl have been written by my mother-in-law to me or to fflttier of my two sisters-in-law. Before her sons married she planned every spare min- ate for them. Their vacations were an endless series of visits to dozens of elderly relatives. They were not allowed to have friends. She said "outsiders" disrupted the family unit. When my husband was in Vietnam she came to my home wd demanded that I share his letters. When I refused, she sailed me names you wouldn't believe. My brothers-in-law are BOW in the service and1 they don't write very often so she telephones their commanding officers regularly. My mother-in-law has decided that "those three miser- able girls" have turned her boys against her. But guess who buys the birthday gift, the Christmas gift, the Easter ham and the Mother's Day plants? Those Three Miserable Girls. DEAR GIRLS: You girls just might tura out to be the world's best mothers-in-law. There's no teacher like exper- ience especially a bad experience, DEAR ANN LANDERS: My great uncle is 83 years old but could pass for 65. He became a widower in '68 and ever since his wife died 'lie has been the town playboy. .Last week he took out two ladies the differences in their ages was 40 years! Six months ago Unk began to make subtle passes at me when nobody was looking. I laughed it off but it's not funny anymore. Last night he cornered me in the garage when I went to get charcoal for the barbecue. He grabbed me and kissed me full on the mouth. I had a terrible time getting free of him. Ann, I don't want to tell my husband, yet I am afraid to be around this worm. He is a family favorite and I'd bate to let people know sweet, adorable Unk is a dirty old man. What should I do? (P.S. Please don't print the name of my city.) Clutched. DEAR CLUTCHED: O.K., no city, but don't worry about anyone guessing Unk's identity. Every city has its share of dirty old men. Tell Unk if be makes one more false move he will no longer be welcome in your home and you'll have to tell your, husband why. Then do it if you must.
