Perhaps this letter will save some other second wile from being as foolish as I was. George and I were long lime friends. His wife died within weeks of my husband. We decided to marry a few months ago. We moved into my home instead of his. George and I agreed that his daughters could have whatever they wanted from his place, Many lovely antiques, paintings and silver were divided among his girls. We kept nothing. This home reflects my history, my family background, my nothing of George's. How I regret not having saved a few of his treasures for conversation pieces. I wish I could say, painting belonged to George's mother. Let him tell you about it." If I had it to do over I'd have insisted that George keep everything and dole out the treasures one by one. They would have been appreciated instead of taken for No Name DEAR N. N.: You make more than one point in your letter. I think your last sentence is the.most revealing. Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A nephew who lived with us (he had trouble with his parents and moved into our home last year) died unexpectedly. (No foul play. It was an In tlie past week several letters arrived, addressed to the boy. Should we pass them on to his parents, destroy them, or return them to the senders? If you say return them, should we write on the envelope "Deceased" or "Party not known." Thanks for your Aunt DEAR AUNT: The letters should be returned to the senders. The most considerate approach would be to write a personal note ad vising the sender that the boy has passed away recently ot an illness. Your note should be attached to the unopened letter and mailed in your own envelope. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been married for three years to a man who never was much o[ a talker but I've always had the feeling the quiet fellows are the real liell raisers. Now H appears rhy hunch may be right. I just discovered what I thought was his mother's recipe of those wooden, kitchen-type index with names, addresses, telephone numbers, dimensions, and a few comments which appear to be performance ratings. I have not told my husband I found it. Should I? He never goes anyplace without me (that know of) and I have no.reason lo suspect that he is seeing anyone. But I'm baf- fled as to why he hangs on to the junk if lie has no use for it What should I do? Wanda Dear Wan: Keep your pea-pickin' hands off your husband's property.

CHICAGO (CP> 'file Amer- ican Medical Association ad- vises women who want their ears pierced for ear-rings to have it done by a doctor. Other- wise, complications may result. The AM A in a book, The Look You Like, says: "Piercing performed by a friend or any unskilled person greatly increases the possibility of complications. The instru- ments used for piercing are not always sterile, and proper pre- cautions often are not followed during healing. There is danger of contracting serious internal infections, such as hepatitis, from having the ears pierced under conditions. "When a physician pierces ears, he first carefully mea- sures and marks the ears, be- cause both ears may not be ex- actly alike. After piercing with sterile needle or other instru- ient, he inserts either ear-rings metallic wires. These starter' ear -rings or wires sliould he worn for three or tour weeks, until tlw wounds heal.' New ear-rings should not be in- serted until the wounds are completely healed." The small, self-piercing ear- ring loops are not considered safe, the AMA said. These de- vices have sharp points which are supposed lo pierce the ears within a few days as they are being worn. Infections requiring medical treatment have devel- oped from using these self-pier- has "uothing to do with he traditional inth- opologist Margaret Mead said Dr. Mead told the annual meeting of the Vanier Institute the Family that pre-indus- trial societies "never thought of putting a young husband and wife together, separating them rom their relatives in little suburban boxes and moving hem around." A return lo an amily" pattern is needed to icrmit wider relationships be- ween young and old people and children and to provide greater support for individuals within :he family. "I think we have to build communities she said. This would require new farms of housing to permit families to include three generations and some cases unmarried un- cles or ami Is. Dr. Mead said that iu the ex tended family a g.-andmothei or aunl could lielp out a moth er, while a wage-earner who lost his job could fall back on others in the family. "The nuclear family places a terrible burden on a young fa- ther who is terrified of losing his job and therefore becomes who doesn't dare lake time off it she's sick." The result wa8 a perfect fit with a "manipulative" society because the father worrying about his job would agree to anything in order to keep it. Dr. Mead, a renowned scbol- ir and author of numerous books, was speaking after being awarded the Wilder Penfield plaque "in recognition of her contribution in the service of humanity." It was the firsl time the plaque, named in honor of the Montreal neurosurgeon Wider Penfield, has Dr. been awarded. For Dr. Mead, an American, it was the first such honor from Canada. Dr. Mead said the family will survive as an institution, be- cause "children need lo be brought up in families." "But not in isolated nuclear families." She said thai while no society has yet abolished the family, up to now the family has raised boys to kill in war and girls to egg them on. l XMBASFIV SCRIPT frrcv nr, and -Arc hard M.
