COLOR MACHINE Gives You 3000 Colors To Choose From For Every Decorating Need. DICKINSONHARDWARE AMBOY ILLINOIS her. "Morn" expects my husband to do everything from fixing leaky faucets and hanging pictures to buying and selling prop- erties, building things, and helping With legal matters. Where does duty end and the apron strings of "momism" begin? It's as if our wedding ceremony read, "forsaking all others ex- cept MAMA!" THE SOLUTION OF YOUR PROBLEM involves much more than a definition of duty or filial loyalty, Ethel. According to your letter, you have been putting up with this nonsense for almost ninet years, so I presume that you have protested against it many times in the past. Yet your husband still persists in neg- lecting his own affeirs and running to assist his mother every time she beckons, while the other members of the family strong- ly insist that it is his duty to do so. IT LOOKS LIK~E SOMEBODY IS CAUGHT in a rather deep rut, and I suspect that the pattern is not accidental. Let's 16ok at the situation a little more closely. There are other chlldre~ in the family, all unmarried though past the normal age for mar- riage. Evidently this family is not enthusiastic about marriage. If it follows the usual form in such cases, further analysis will show that the mother has been the major agent in dissuading her children from marrying. She would indignantly deny this, of course, but one discovers few exceptions when the total cycle of such families is studied in detail. WHY SHOULD MOTHERS TAKE this approach with their fam- ilies? Well, Ethel, to put it ~oluntly they figure they have gone through the trouble of bearing and raising their children and feel they have a right to enjoy them. In practice, this means that they never fully release control. They start binding their chil- dren to them even while they are quite young. When the chil- dren become old enough to start dating, they have many subtle ways of heading off a serious affair, by careful criticism of the other party, by sowing doubt concerning the suitability of the match, by suggesting that someone better can be found, by en- couraging delay, and so on. Meanwhile, they keep insisting that they only have their children's best interests at heart. They want them to marry--but . . . I WHAT HAS ALL THIS TO DO with your problem? Well, for one thing, your husband did manage to free himself sufficiently from the control of his family to get married. Your letter doesn't state how this happened, but one point is clear, his mother has no intention of allowing him to escape that easily. She maintains her control by making constant demands upon him, and the other children back her up, either because they unconsciously envy his freedom or feel that he has been disloyal to them by attempt- ing to bring an "outsider" into 'their closed little family circle. FURTHERMORE, HIS MOTHER IS BOUND to resent you and your attempt to take her son from her. She has no intention of allowing you to get away with it and consequently loses no op- portunity to let you and her son know who's still in charge. Her method is simple--she just takes your husband's subservience for granted, using an appeal to duty, or a little flattery about his superior ability to do things, whenever he starts to balk. HOW CAN YOU,DEAL WITH THE SITUATION? You're start- ing a little late, Ethel, but if your husband isn't too weak, the problem can be handled satisfactorily. First, he has to see what his mother and family, are trying to do to him and his marriage. As a matter of fact, they have refused to recognize his marriage and the responsibilities it necessarily involves. Once he is clear about his primary obligations, and he must be thoroughly con- vinced on this point, he will be prepared to take a rational stand against their unjust demands. SECOND, YOU AND HE M U S T EXPECT a considerable amount of unpleasantness, at least in the beginning. Your hus- band will simply have to refuse all these requests on his time and energy, and his refusal is bound to create resentment, since they have hitherto taken him for granted. You, of course, will be blamed for his changed attitude, and you can expect to be ac- cused of selfishly depriving him of his loving family. FINALLY, TRY TO AVOID all harsh words or bitter thoughts, no matter what may happen. Convince your husband that he has to face up to his primary responsibilities, and then stand by him patiently. He'll need courage, but weaning is often a pain- ful process for all parties involved. (Father Thomas will be unable to answer personae letters.)

The Congolese prelate spoke at a ceremony in Leopoldville cath- ral marking the first anniver- sary of the Congo's indepen- dence from Belgium. He said that despite the unselfishness of some "we still smell the nause- ous stench of injustice, corrup- tion and immorality." High gay- ernment officials were present at the services. Protest Denied A press report that Congolese Foreign Minister Justin Bombo- ko protested to the Apostolic Delegate against Bishop Malu- la s sermon was denied by Arch- bishop Gastone Majaisky-Perrel- li, Apostolic Delegate to the Congo and Ruanda Urundi. He said his personal and official relations with Bomboko have al- ways been excellent and that he has always found him an under- standing man in periods Of dif- ficulty for the nation and the church. Archbishop Mojaisky-Perrelli heard the sermon. Prominent in the audience also were President Joseph Kasavubu, Premier Jo- seph Ileo and the country's sen- ~tors and deputies. Bishop Malula said the anni- versary brought "joy to an inde- pendent country, but a country violently shaken and seeking its ~eople and for the people," he ;aid. "If you use them as a spring- 3oard to 'arrive,' they will hate ~-ou instead of loving you." Bishop Malula said foreign agents were responsible for much of the Congo's misery. "Certain agitators of pre-inde- pendence days are contriving to slink into our ranks under the false pretext of being counsel- ors or technicians," he said. "They are chased out of one door, they enter by the other. What do they want? To divide the Congolese, to star up ha- treds, to excite here the old quarrels of their countries, to prolong the Congolese crisis." Clash of Forces He also said: "Two forces are meeting head-on in the Congo: materialism from wherever it :ames and our spiritual tradi- tion. The Congo has become the terrain of their irreducible an- tagonism. The struggle is all the more bitter since the Congo would serve as a magnificent springboard to subjugate the Af- rican continent." Bishop Malula concluded with a warning that Congolese lead- ers must unite or the Congo will die. "My dear brothers, the friend- ly understanding that I urge upon you is not a simple gesture of courtesy. It is a question of life or death for the Congolese nation. This national reconcilia- tEen will not in fact be a form of stagnation, but, to your honor, perfect equilibrium." lit will be the starting point of a Cause of Agitation I prodigious impulse for the good "You have been elected by the of all Congolese, in liberty."
