Her veil of illusion and those of her attendants were designed by Jean Gowler. Miss Sharon Guthrie, sister of the bride, .wearing an olive green dress with full length sleeves, served as maid of honor.

She also played a medley of nuptial selections. A.reception was held at the church; with Paula Moore, Mrs. Connie Carter, both cousins of the bride, and Mrs. P h y His Flanrtagan serving. The four- tiered wedding cake on a table holding olive candles, was baked by Mrs. Elmer Nolan of Dix. It was diamond 5 - shaped with each layer on a pedistick and it was beautifully decorated with white wedding belts and white doves with gold rings.

For a wedding trip, the bride changed to an off-while ensemble with red accessories. The bride is a 1968 graduate of the Mt..' Vernon Township High School and the bridegroom graduated from the local high school in 1967. Both are employed at Uncle Charley's. They are making their home at 208 Main street. I ' DEAR .ABBY:- 1 am 27, have been marriecb' and divorced twice*: I have two small children who are being raised by my. mother. About a year -ago I started going" with a man. He was married) with a family, but' he said he was getting a divorce so we started making plans. He moved in with me to save oh expenses. His wife found but about us and now she's giving him-a bad time. She won't take him back, but he has to support her and the kids anyway. He doesn't help me financially and with him living here it keeps me from seeing other guys. To tell you the truth, the thrill has worn off, and I'd like to get rid of him. He's a very weak man. I feel responsible for this mess, but why should I be' stuck with this guy? What should I do? STUCK DEAR STUCK: Throw him out. If he has nowhere else to go, he'll probably go home arid beg his wife to take him back. And if you're in the mai'- ket for a man, next time choose a single one. They make the best husbands. DEAR ABBY :My 45- year- old wife came home all smiles and said, "A*-truck driver whistled at me today!" Why is it that when a truck driver whistles at a, lady she takes it as a compliment and doesn't get mad, but just let any other strange man lean out of a car window and whistle at her and she turns up her nose and gets insulted? SOLLY DEAR SOLLY: In the first place, truck drivers are a handsome, masculine, good humored breed of men who enjoy a reputation for being a good judge of women. Also, when a truck driver whistles at a lady she feels safe. She knows he's not going to leave his rig and pursue her. DEAR ABBY: In the beginning it was fun to have a "young looking" mother, but now it has become a problem. I have two children which makes my mother a grandmother . She is 51 years old, and let's face it she :s eld cnou.'.h to gray hair ' and to look like a < Tatdmother bvit s"he rcf-ifcs 'o p.e-cnt it. .She wen'. ; to 1c !: 1 : !\< a tr; n.! agcr. . Mti;hcr tints h • he.'r arc.I cuts it short (like mine) and she uses as much make - up as I use. and she bracts that she can still -.ear a size 10. (I wear a 14.) And Abby, even tho she docs have a nice figure, i those fhovt, iitlle-girl clothes • look ridiculous on a woman with a 51- year- old face, i How- can a daughter tell her j mother to look her age? I am sure my children would prefer a more grandmotherly image for their grandmother. BUGGED DEAR BUGGED :I'm not sure I know what a "grandmother" is supposed to look like. I suspect if you were more satis- jfie'd with your own "image" you wouldn't be so "bugged" by your mother's. CONFIDENTIAL TO "DISGUSTED IN ASHTABULA": I am ail for helping people in their hour of need, but I, too, am disgusted with this business of handing over my tax dollars for the welfare of women wHb have one illegitimate baby after another for the purpose of picking up the welfare check. At the risk of being thought "hard- hearted and insensitive" I must? say that I think a woman who bears more than one child out of wedlock should automatically become ineligible for welfare. I know that Jesus told the scribes and Pharisees who brought^ Him a woman who had committed adultery, "He that is without sin among you, let him first, cast a stone at her." Bu did He not also say, "Go and sin no more"? Everybody has a problem. What's yours?

Vernon, Jll. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm^mm^mmmmmmimmm JIM KAUFMAN By BETTY CANARY Often "and copiously have I written about little children an.; the indignities they must suffer from adults. Remember that. I have questioned the morals and menta 1 facilities of adults Who would scold, slap and humiliate the small ones. However, if you will just wait until I have, washed the mayonnaise from my hair, sent my coat to the cleaners and taken a couple of aspirin tablets, I'd like to state that I'm not in favor of adults being their victims either. I am not saying it was the little girl's fault when she smeared her hamburger in my hair, but I know she deliberately speared mo with her straw. That was after she blew the paper straw envelope into my coffee, of course. I just wish her mother would teach the child some manners, or, preferably, keep her at home in a nice, dry crate. I had lots of errands and I was in, a hurry, so that's why 1 stopped at the coffee shop for a sandwich. I don't know why the mother and daughter had stopped there. Possibly it was because the child had wrecked their kitchen at home. • I sat in the booth behind .them and ordered my sandwich, ac­ companied by the thudding of child against leatherette, "don't do that, Mary -Ruth," the mother said sweetly. The thudding. stopped and a thick, wet plop on the back of my head told me- Mary Ruth was now standing behind me oaring a hamburger. I moved to the other side of my table and smiled tolerantly. Mary Ruth leaned over the booth and blew her straw cover into my coffee. "Mary Ruth!" her mother said. "I'm sure it was an accident," I lied. Mary Ruth joined me in my booth. "She's just the friendliest tning," her mother cooed. "Isn't she?" I answered, hold-; ing my sandwich out of reach, i "Go back and drink your milk shake, Mary Ruth," I hissed kindly. She stahbed me in the eye with her straw and turned over my coffee cup. "Mary Ruth" Her mother said [ "It needed cleaning anyway," • I said, swabbing at my coat. : "You'd better sit down, dear,", I said to Mary Ruth. "Santa's I elves might be watching!" • Mary Ruth started to cry. "Honesly," Her mother said, | 'scaring a baby! I simply don't understand some people!"

Washing does not do i it, nor spot removers nor finger- i nail polish remover. The glue j leaves white spots on their j pants and shirts. With four boys ! making ' model cars, I really I need help. —CAROLE | DEAR POLLY — Sometime ago, Mrs. M.C.K. wanted to know j what she could do with the ma\ ny empty spools left from her i sewing thread. Save them for 1 next Christmas and spray with : silver or gold, cover with bright 1 ribbon and hang them on the Christmas tree. They are beautiful. -JUDY DEAR POLLY - Like Mrs. M.C.K., I, too, do a lot of sew! ing and I put my many empty | spools to work as Christmas I tree decorations. I painted the ] spools the bright traditional cc: lors, ran a string through the spool and then through a big bead, broken earring or glittery button, larger than the hole in the ^spool. Doubled the string back through the spool and added another bead, button, etc., at the top. Allowed enough string or ribbon at the top to hang this on the tree. With a little imagination you can go a long way with this basic idea. —MRS. H.W.N. DEAR POLLY -Mrs. P.N.M. wanted to know how to brighten a stainless steel spoon that had accidentally been burned and from which the bad discoloration has been removed, I suggest cleaning the spoon with copper cleaner. This also works on stainless steel sinks and restores their original satiny finish. —MRS. R. C.
