Ann Landers ftpt.mb.r 11, WJ THI LETHWIMI VtKAlB _ DEAB ANN ZANDERS: What can I do about overbearing parents who want to run my life? I'm no 27 and married to a professional man. Ever since I can remember they did everything for me. If I started something, my mother finished it. Now, even though I'm a grown woman, I can'l do anything right. They don't like the way I've furnished my home, the clothes I wear or tire way I'm raising my son. Wa could move to another city hut my husband has a good future here. Is there any solution besides telling them to drop DEAR TRAPPED: It isn't necessary to tell your parents to drop doad. They Tlien you'll wonder why you weren't more patient and understanding. Maybe tliey do come on too strong. So what? They can't force you to ac- cept their ideas. Listen to their suggestions, accept what you want to, and ignore the rest. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our next door neighbors are good people. We've been friends for five years. No problems. Never a harsh word between us. Suddenly I noticed that our neighbors have extended their tomato garden into our back yard. The property line is mark- ed clearly by a telephone question about where their yard ends and oui-s begins. We both have large areas- no one is hurting for space. To my old-fashioned Nonwigian upbringing, it is unthink- able lo infringe even one inch on someone else's property. I feel that they have violated a sacred principle. My sweet husband says "forget but I can't. Funny how inbred ideas from early childhood live on forever. What would you do if you were in my On The Outside, Seething On The Inside DEAR FRIEND: If I were in your shoes I'd walk lo your neighbors and tell them exactly how I feel. People who smile on the outside and seethe on the inside build ulcers. Bottled emotions are like time bombs. They explode later. Get going the sooner the better. DEAR. ANN LANDERS: Recently you printed a lelter from a man who wanted to know how to make the transition from friendship to romance. He said he had known the girl for four had started out as a brother-sister relation- ship and suddenly he found himself looking at her with dif- ferent eyes. You said, heart never won fair anything and advised him to lake a deep breath and tell her that the friendship had become deeper and more meaningful and before he fell head over heels be should ask If she could possibly feel the same way about him, Then you added, "don't be surprised if she says she already does." Now, Ann Landers, how would you have answered that letter if the writer had been a woman instead of a There Now DEAR THERE: The same way. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I must take exception to the an- swer you gave U> the girl who wanted to know why she spent, the better part of every evening fighting for her honor. She said her last date argued with her about the impor- tance of virginity until a.m. and had a terrible time getting out of his apartment. You asked her what she was doing in a guy's' apartment until a.m. anyway? Ann, it's apparent that it's been a long time since you played the Dating Game. Gone are the gentle seducers of yesteryear. Now the attitude is, "Hey, Babe, hot pants are In, virginity is out. Let's get on with it.'' I'd like lo pass along my counter-philosophy. It goes like this: "Look, Busier, this is MY body and I'm going to de- cide who gets liis hands on it and when. If you are one of the lucky few, I'll let you know." This approach saves lot. of time and energy. Sign Surrounded And Happy DEAR S AND H: Your counter-philosophy sounds very much like something you read in my column. I can'l see that you and I have any differences whatever. Thanks lor writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is what happened the other evening and I want your opinion. A mother and her two small children were at the supper table. Ouests were present. The younger child asked, "Mommy, can 1 have the strawberries on your shortcake? I love them so much." The mother replied, "No. I love them too, and I am going to eat thorn myself." The child was crushed. I felt so sorry for him. What do you think about such a Dear Chic: 1 think we need more mothers like that. Too many kids today have Ihe idea they should have everything they see. As often as not they don't even want what they ask tor. Parents who cater to the whims of their children because tl.ey believe it's the way to make kids worse yet, who enjoy "sacrificing for the kids" learn later that they did the youngsters no favors. The selfish adults in our midst are those kids of yore who never learned itow lo to receive. ......'ZZSSSTrH; WORLD OF FASHION; AT YOUR FEET We cordially invite you lo tetett your new fnlf wardrobe from OUT fabulous collection of world fam- ous brand RUSSIAN BRIDAL.

Saddle die-hards staging comeback By JUDY KLEMKSRUD New York Times Service NEW YORK They're back in the saddles again. After a 15-year liiatus, in which the primary wearers were a few die-hard cheer-leaders, people are once again donning those old favorites of the fort- ies and fifties: saddle shoes. Stores (even staid Abercrombie and Fitch) are advertising them. Fasliion magazines are featuring them. Woody Allen sports them in his two latest movies. And at least one male fashion model weal's them while driving to his bookings in his circa-1950 Cadillac. "Ttiey make me think of how carefree tilings were back in the nostalgic said Francis Wood. In fact, most fashion experts trace the return of the saddle shoe to the resurgence of inter- est in the fifties in general, as exemplified by such things a; bright lipstick and buggy fas hions, tha Broadway musica1 "Grease" and the recent nil movie, "The Last Picture vShow." ''We've in a sense returned to the postwar said Dor-1 othy Tricarico, consultant in the design laboratory of the Brook- lyn Museum. "That period has become a fashion source for such things as sloppy joe sweat- ers, plaid skirts, and platform shoes. It was just natural that saddle shoes would return, too." Today's two toners are a bit }azzier than their old black or brown and while cousins.

According to a spokesman i for the Thorn McCan Shoe Com- pany, which features saddle shoes in its 50th anniversary 'nostalgia 10 per cent of the company's recent sack to school business was .n saddle shoes. "We can't give any exact fig- ures because that's the kind of thing the Kinney people would like to he said. But it was thousands and thousands of shoes." According to shoe salesmen, the leading saddle shoe custom- ers are not teen-agers as was true in the forties and fifties, but post college career people between Ihe ages of 25 and 40. "They usually say something like, 'Oh, J used to wear them when I was a said Paul Texler, a s alesmnn a t Aber- crombie and Fitch, which is stocking saddle shoes for the first time since 1960. Many saddle shoe fans, after learning that their favorite foot- wear was back in vogue, mere- .y went into the closet and dusted off a pair they had owned for years. "They're the most comfort- able shoes I've ever said Charles Sawyer, 30, an ad- vertising copywriter for War- ner, Bicking and Fenwick in 1 Manhattan, who first wore his I black and wliite pair at the University of Georgia in 1960. Now he wears them mostly on weekends while strolling around the city. "They're like combat he added. "You can wear them sleet, rain and snow, and! nohling happens to them." j we srot> o foil SAVAGE SHOES for tbildrm Benefit Shoes Ltd. S154thAve. S. 327-7300 OPEN THURS AND ffil. Till 9 P.M. Abortion counselling suggested CALGARY (CP) City phys- icians are pushing girls into having abortions without in- forming them of all the conse- quences, says Yvonne Cote, president of a Calgary agency caller! Birthright. Mrs. Cote said in a recent in- terview tlie girls are not get- ting a fair deal when they are not fully informed, "If these doctors doing the abortion counselling feel they are helping the girl, it should be iheir duty to make hor realize ail the ramifications of the abortion." The registered nurse and mother of six said it's an irony j and tragedy that the same doc- tors urging girls to have an i abortion are not performing psychiatric examinations of the yirls after the operation. Birthright is an agency of more than 40 volunteers pat- terned after a similar group in Toronto. It is one of 26 in Can- aria. Its main aim is to offer as- sistance to women in distress over unwanted pregnancies, Mrs. Cote said. PEE FILLER PIE FELLER iREEH BEANS cherry, blueberry, peach, raisin, ttrawberry If 01.
