Since the group, Youth Against Cancer, was organized recently, however, the E. Court Street office has been livelier than usual. Young people like Greg Hoy and Nancy McClure, pictured on our cover today, come regularly to help out. They're pictured with the Cancer Society's mannequin used in anti-smoke demonstrations. Nancy is a graduate of St. Ursula Academy and assists her mother in operating the McClure dance studio. She is also co-director of the Purcell Cavalettes and has recruited their services for many ACS projects. Greg is a junior at Finneytown High.

Dear Abby Shallow spirit By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: Our church had a Christmas tree sale to pay for the church bus. The preacher and another man (I will call him Mr. Jones) were in charge of this sale. They asked our 16-year-old son to help out, so the kid took a tent and sleeping bag and stayed on that tree lot working for a whole week, night and day. Mr. Jones asked our son to deliver a Christmas tree, and he gave him his car to use. Our son backed out of a driveway and hit a mailbox and cracked the windshield of Mr. Jones' car. Mr. Jones thinks we ought to pay for the damages on his car. What do you think? HURT DEAR HURT: Under the circumstances I would say that Mr. Jones' Christian spirit isn't very deep. And buying a church bus won't deepen it. A Beautiful Ring Just $195 Don't you think she'd really rather have a ring from Ncwstedt-Loring Andrews?
