Family Lib A children's bill of children's rights By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) What rights do kids want? A few adults who consider themselves children's advocates have been bombarding parents with the notion that kids want the same rights as adults — the right to live where they want, the right not to go to school, the right to vote and so forth. I decided to go out and interview kids at random and ask them what rights they, themselves, wanted. Here is what they said: Mike, 15: "I'd like to drink. I think the curfew for kids should be lowered to 15, but no younger 'cause when you're younger, you don't know what you're doin'. Also let kids work when they're 15 if they need the money." Pete, 14: "We're in pretty good shape except the minimum age for working should be 14. Oh, yeah, legalize pot but at the same time, raise the age for drinking." Lorie, 11: "I'd like the same rights in sports as boys." Steve, 17: "I think kids should be able to drink. Voting doesn't matter. 1 don't smoke pot but I think it should be legal. You should have to go to school until you're 16 - it's what you gotta know whether you like it or not. You should be able to purchase a car when you're 16 if you work to pay for it. Also a kid should be able to get a job no matter what his age if he can show the boss he can and does want to work.' Erika, 15: "No curfew." John, 18: "Lower the drinking age to 18 — but no younger. When you're 16 or 17, you haven't got it together enough to drink. Voting at 18 but no younger because most kids don't understand or care what's going on." Claudine, 15: "More consumer education courses in school because you never know who's going to rip you off." Mitch, 16: "I can't think of anything I don't have. The right to drink, but you can always get around that. The same with smoking pot. We have total rights in school." Holly, 16: "Cops should leave kids alone when they're 'watching the submarine races' because there's no place for kids to gc when they want to be physically close." Craig, 17: "A better choice of courses in school, so 1 can find out what I'm really interested in." After talking with more than 50 kids, 1 can tell you the majority of them want to drink and stay out late - but what generation of kids hasn't wanted to do the same thing? Some of the kids advocated legalization of marijuana. Some very responsible adults, including the Board of Trustees of the American Medical Association and the American Bar Association, have come out in favor of decriminalization of marijuana. The majority of kids I talked with say they should be able to work and some of the most prominent educators agree with them, adding that school plus work is the best kind of education a child can receive. Many of the kids want a greater choice of classes in school — and why not? Maybe parents would be better off listening to their kids instead of their adult advocates.

DEAR ABBY: If I were DEAR ABBY for ten minutes, I would tell every woman in the world not to marry a mamma's boy. One of the tip-offs is a man who is between 30 and 40 and not married. I married one of these Yo-Yos and it's the dumbest thing I ever did. Although he's a steady worker, that's all he knows how to do. I have to get him up in the morning, tell him what to wear, and even when to change his clothes. He's so childish and helpless. He doesn't even know how to kiss. He clamps his lips together and presses them on my lips. I've tried to teach him how, but even after five years, he hasn't improved. He doesn't know the first thing about how to make love, either. It's whim-wham, and that's it. So for the last two years, an hour before he gets home I start to getting a "migraine." I'd go to a marriage counselor, but he won't go, and no woman can save her marriage alone. Mamma's boys just want a cook and housekeeper and a bed partner for two minutes once a week. If I could get a job and support myself, I'd leave him. STUCK IN PEKIN, ILL. DEAR STUCK: Nobody is stopping you from trying. One woman's leftovers are another woman's banquet. DEAR ABBY: My problem is a small one, but on second thought, are bad manners ever a small problem? My husband and I would like your opinion of this situation: We know two different families whom we invite to our home for dinner occasionally. (Not together.) The minute we sit down at the table, both fathers of these families ask one of their children to say the grace. Abby, am I out of line to think this shows extreme bad manners on their part? I always thought, it was up to the host and hostess to decide if grace was to be said at their table. And if so, by whom. Please print your reply. Perhaps these men or their wives will read your column and learn something. Or I may learn something if 1 am wrong. SOCIAL GRACE DEAR SOCIAL: You are not wrong. It's the host's or hostess' prerogative to decide if grace shall be said at his (or her) table, and if so, by whom. DEAR ABBY: I have a unique problem. I have been married to Elmer for six years. We are both in our late twenties. All my life I have been extremely overweight, but this last year,'through a friend's inspiration," I was motivated to lose 120 pounds. (Yes, one hundred and twenty pounds!) Throughout my diet Elmer never indicated that he approved or disapproved, but now that my life has changed as much as my figure, Elmer has decided that he doesn't like the "new me," and he wants me to regain the weight I sacrificed so much to get rid of. Perhaps I should mention that Elmer is fat, and we used to have a lot of fun together eating all the things we shouldn't but those days are gone for me. Now Elmer feels betrayed, and I feel guilty, because when he married me he really liked me the way I was. I am torn between staying thin, which I am so proud to be, or letting myself go to please Elmer. FORMERLY FAT DEAR FORM: For heaven's sake, stay thin! Join Overeater's Anonymous and let them help you. And take Elmer with you. They are a great, loving, caring fellowship. If Elmer doesn't flip for them and their program, I'll eat my calorie counter. CONFIDENTIAL TO "ALIMONY POOR" IN BEVERLY HILLS? CAL.: That's the high cost of leaving; also it's the next thing that should be "Nadarized." But ask yourself, would you rather have your wife back? That should offer some comfort. Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. Hate to write letters? Send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Cal. 90212, for Abby's booklet, "How to Write Letters for all Occasions."

Copy-Cat Green iomato keiish By CECILY BKOWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor DEAR CECILY: My family enjoys the Green Tomato ReU ish 1 buy in 12-ounce jars which is made -- according to the label — with green tomatoes, sugar, corn syrup, salt, vinegar, red and green peppers, onions, mustard seed and carrageen. I'd like to duplicate it. Can you guide me? By the way, what's carrageen? — PUTTER UPPER. DEAR PUTTER UPPER: Thanks for the good idea. We bought ourselves a jar of the relish you describe and had this fine copy-cat version developed. Carrageen is also called Irish moss, which gives you a clue to its source. It is sometimes used in commercially prepared foods as a suspending agent. It isn't necessary to add it to a homemade relish. — C. B.

Calendar of events Love Italian food and watching your weight? Use ricotta cheese in place of cottage cheese and mozarella cheese in place of processed cheddar when making lasagna. You'll really cut down on calories . . . When "washing" fruit — it's a good idea not to let the fruit stand in water. Some lose food value and flavor that way and others get "water soaked."
