Unmarrieds unwelcome Cradle Roll in Badger State motel By Abigail Van Buren (c 1974 br Chlugo Tribum-N. Y. Ntws Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: A mother writes that her adult daughter is coming home for a visit and she's bringing her boyfriend, with whom she has been living for a year. Mother's dilemma: Should she let them share a bedroom in her home, knowing they live together elsewhere? Mother says she doesn't approve of living together without marriage. YOU ADVISED: "Tell them that in your home they have to go by your rules, and if they don't like it, send 'em to a motel." Abby, please don't send them to MY motel. In Wisconsin, it's against the law to rent rooms to unmarrieds. We are protected only if they register as "Mr. and Mrs." Below is the State Law concerning cohabitation, which we have posted in every one of our motel rooms: "Wisconsin Statutes Pertaining to Sexual Crimes Between Adults with Consent. 944.15 - Fornication Whoever hat sexual intercourse with a person not his spouse may be fined $200 or imprisoned not more than 6 months or both. 944.16 • Adultery Either of the following may be fined not more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than 3 years or both: (1) A married person who has sexual intercourse with a person not his spouse. (2) A person who has sexual intercourse with a person who is married to another." MOTEL OWNER , THORP, W1SC. DEAR OWNER: Thanks for the interesting law lesson. (Is that why they call Wisconsin the "Badger State?") DEAR ABBY' I've been married a year. It is my first marriage and my husband's second. Already I think I have problems. My husband has partner in a business venture. The partner's wife never misses a chance to give me an earful of dirt on the first wife. I have met my husband's first wife and found her to be a very warm, sincere individual. My husband and she were incompatible after several years of marriage and mutually coSed to divorce. She must surely have had some merit for my husband to have married her. 1 have a better opinion of the first wife, whom I have never heard say a degrading word about anyone than 1 do of this partner's wife, who belittles her own mother in tront of even casual acquaintances. How do you keep people like this out of your hair? now y t- pARTNER . s wlFr DEAR FED: With a brush-at every opportunity. DEAR ABBY: How do you tell a 36-year-old daughter to please sit up straight? Or do you think it's too late? Her posture makes me sick. She was always tall for her age and was so self-conscious about it she would go around stoop-shouldered. She looked like a hunchback. I took her to an orthopedic doctor when she was 13 just to make sure she didn't have some kind of spinal deformity. He took X rays and said she was perfect. It still bothers me to see such a beautiful girl slouch all the time when she could look so nice. Any advice? TEXAS MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Apparently your daughter tuned vou out years ago. But if you ever succeed in getting a 36 ye^r-old VomL to listen to her mother please et me Sow your secret. A few million readers would appreciate it. Problem*? You'U feel h*tt« if you get it .off your chest. reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., stamped, self-addressed envelope. Pl H^te to write letters'?

Family Lib An ultimate test of brotherhood By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) An easy quiz for readers: Who in the Koch household made the following statements and to whom were they directed? 1. "Make your bed." 2. "I'm not your servant. Pick up your shoes and put them 3. "If you think. I'm going to cook dinner and then do all the dishes by myself, you re crazy." ,...., ,,,. oft , ,. 4 "You get your own cold glass of water if you re thirsty. 5. "My God, can't you do anything yourself? Get up and make yourself a snack if you're hungry. If you guessed the statements were uttered by Joanne to Lew you are absolutely wrong. Joanne is out of town this week If you guessed they were made by Lew and directed to Lisa, Rachel and Joshua, our three children - you re wrong ag The statements, in fact, were made by Lew and directed to 32-year-old Michael Koch - my brother - who is staying at our house for the next couple of weeks. So there you have it - the Odd Couple, with three children. In a way, I think Michael is getting even with me. When we were growing up together, sharing a room, I was the one who told him to pick up my shoes and put them away - after all, I was bigger than he was. I was the one who demanded co d water with three ice cubes. And when I was hungry, I told him to fix me a sandwich, lots of mustard but not ketchup. But the times have changed. We've both grown up and I ve spent 10 years living with a woman who believes in sharing - the cooking, the cleaning, the picking up and the other work that goes into keeping house. Now I ve become just as intolerant of male chauvinism as she. I can understand why Lisa comes in after play and takes off her shoes while she's drinking a cold glass of milk. But why should a grown man leave his shoes in the living room after drinking my scotch? Since Joanne is out of town, 1 cook a beautiful, complete meal. Lisa thanks me and offers to clear the table. Rachel thanks me and offers to help wash the dishes. Joshua thanks me and says he will pick up his toys. Michael belches, pushes himself away from the table and asks where the evening ^WmneVs fib, yes; maybe even kid's lib. But what about brother's lib? Here I am, working my fingers to the bone washing dishes so clean that 1 can see my reflection (and isn't that a nice reflection on me?) Where s my brother? Snoring in front of the tv. Well I laid the law down last night. Michael cannot have any scotch until all his clothes are picked up and neatly put away He cannot watch the Today show until his bed is made. And he may not have a snack while watching the late, late movie unless he puts the food back in the refrigerator and washes all the dishes. I told him that if he does all that, next week I will make his favorite dessert — brownies. Relatives present were: the Charles R. Coopers; the Zeb Yergers and Gladys; the D.C. Yergers, M.H.

Here are some ideas from Dolores McBride, county Extension agent-home economics, for keeping your sandwiches within reasonable weight watching bounds. Use thinly sliced breads or hard, crusty breads and rolls. The hard crusty ones are more chewy and take longer to eat. Thus they seem more satisfying. Creamed cottage cheese makes a delicious high protein binder for sandwich fillings at a low calorie cost. For added interest, mix in bits of chopped beef, chopped parsley, chives, or olives. Use room temperature whipped butter as it will spread more easily and thinner. Better still, use mustard or chili sauce instead. Try moistening sandwich filling with any of the low calorie salad dressings, not mayonnaise. You will discover some intriguing new taste combinations. Don't spare the seasonings when preparing any diet food and it is true of sandwich filling. When chosen wisely, these will add few or no calories but will give a flavor lift to keep you from feeling abused. Sliced cucumbers, radishes, tomato, onion, lettuce, chopped celery, grated carrots and other similar vegetables can be used to plump up a sandwich, to make it bulky and filling. All of these add only a very few calories. Make sandwiches open-faced. Save half the bread calories this way and let all the goodness show. It is a good idea to cut sandwiches in small pieces. This makns them more interesting to look at and makes them seem like more to eat, too. For your rnid-day snack, try celery stalks stuffed with a cheese filling, a hard cooked egg, or even a cold chicken drumstick. Snacks high in protein are effective in raising the blood sugar level and in giving a needed energy boost. The protein rich foods also satisfy for a longer period of time. Another good snack food is a small box of seedless raisins or a few dried apricot halves. These give energy and pep and are high in iron content as well. Skim milk or reconstituted dry milk crystals as a beverage with August sandwiches add a great deal to the daily nutrient needs while adding a relatively small number of calories. So, even if you are weight watching, enjoy the slimming version of sandwiches. Weight-watchers will be interested to know that Muenster cheese has fewer calories than cheddar cheese.
