Mrs. Warrington recent graduate Serve Raw Vegetables With a Dip By CECILY BROWNSTONL Associated Press Food Editor When American hostesses first started serving dips with before-dinner drinks, the dips usually had potato chips as their accompaniment. But for some years now a good many party-givers in this country have followed French and Italian cuisine and served the dips with a selection of raw vegetables. In France when raw vegetables are served this way they're called Crudites. For an Italian-style dip for the vegetables we've borrowed an idea from the executive chef of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City. Here's our adaptation of his recipe. RAW VEGETABLES WITH TONNATO DIP 1 can (7 ounces) tuna packed in olive oil 4 anchovy fillets 1'a teaspoons capers . '4 teaspoon grated lemon rind 1 tablespoon lemon juice ':• cup real mayonnaise Raw Vegetables, see Note below Flake the undrained tuna. Mash the anchovies. Mix tuna, anchovies, capers, lemon rind, lemon juice and mayonnaise. Cover and chill. (For a smoother consistency, blend these ingredients in the electric blender just until smooth.) Makes I'.i cups dip. Note: Serve the raw vegetables with the clip so guests may clunk them in it. For the vegetables choose among these: scallions, radishes, cherry tomatop- """mushrooms, cu- cun 2r, ceiui'y, knob celery, whii., turnip, carrot, cauliflower. The scallions, radishes and cherry tomatoes are of course served whole. The mushrooms may be sliced if large or left whole if small. The cucumber may be sliced or cut into strips. Mr. and Mrs. Wallis Floyd Monroe announce the engagement of their daughter, Betty Jean, to Joe Luther Fishback, son of Mr. and Mrs. Luther B. Fishback of North Little hock. The couple will be wed in October in the Western Hills Methodist Church of Little Rock. Miss Monroe is the granddaughter of Mrs. M.G. Monroe of Hope and the late Mr. Monroe and Mr. and Mrs. Tom White of Bossier City, La. Mr. Fishback is the grandson of Mrs. Percy C. Holt of Nashville, Ark. and the late Mr. Holt and the late Mr. and Mrs. Homer B. Fishback of Warrensburg, Mo. The bride-elect is a graduate of Henderson State College where she was a member of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority and Heart and Key service organization. She is presently employed by Cearly and Gitchel, Attorneys at Law, in Little Rock. Mr. Fishback attended State College of Arkansas where he was a member of Sig Tau Gamma fraternity and a member of the swim team. He is employed by Metal Stamping Corporation in Conway. Teacher honored Mrs. Elmer Brown was honored at a surprise luncheon at Brookwood elementary school on her birthday, Tuesday, August 27. Each teacher brought a dish. All kinds of salads, chips, dips, crackers and cokes were served to twenty-six. Mrs. Brown, who has been principal at Brookwood since 1948, began her teaching career forty-five years ago. The honoree received a number of gifts. MRS. WARRINGTON Mrs. Richard (Elaine) Warrington, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Houston Gunter of Hope recently received her master's degree in Education in English at Arkansas State Becoming a senior citizen with style By Abigail Van Buren » 1974 by Chicago Tribunt-N. Y. News Synd DEAR ABBY: I identified with that woman who wrote in saying we should try to be more patient with our elderly parents. I am trying to be patient with a mother who is at times quite exasperating. However, not all elderly people are the same. Some of Mother's contemporaries are charming and quite remarkable. I do believe that as we grow older, we should try to keep active and interested, so that we will be interesting to others. t . For many years we had my wife's grandmother living with us, and now my mother-in-law, who is nearly 80, is making her home with us. With my vast experience in dealing with the elderly I've been meaning to make a list of things to do and not do so that I will one day be a charming senior citizen, but with my luck my memory will probably fail, and I won't be able to find the list. GETTING THERE DEAR GETTING: Thanks. You've given me an idea. I think I'll compose such a list from the experience of others. My own parents weren't lucky enough to become senior citizens. And my husband's parents are in their 70s —but a more beautiful, independent and ageless couple I've never known. DEAR ABBY: My husband's business partner, who is a fine young man of 29, recently married a 20-year-old girl. She was very promiscuous before they met, but he probably knows nothing about it as he is a newcomer to this town. Being pretty, she "swept him off his feet" and they married after a whirlwind romance. She is pregnant, and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if her husband wasn't even the baby's father. I heard that shortly after their marriage she was seen with another man. We must see them socially, which is very painful to us because we know about her background. My husband and I are torn between telling this best friend and business nartner the truth and keeping quiet. Please tell us how to Spe with the situation. NO ADDRESS, PLEASE Inc. DEAR NO ADDRESS: Keep quiet, of course. And don't believe everything you hear. The gossip could be entirely without foundation. DEAR ABBY: A poor, homely type girl became impregnated by a married man who had no intention of leaving his wife and marrying her. The poor girl says it's too late for an abortion, but the father of the unborn suggested that she have the baby and let him and his wife adopt it as they were childless and desperately wanted a child. This would have been a perfect solution to everybody's problem. But you say "no," and even have the gall to suggest that the child be handed over to an adoption agency! How can you be so narrow-minded? Any child born under such circumstances would rather be in a home with its biological father than in a "nice" home with adopted strangers. Are you so arrogant that, you think you can play "God" with people's lives with your often biased advice? It seems to me that you need a little advice yourself. J.C.F. DEAR MR. F.: What assurance have you that after this unwed mother hands over the child to the man with whom she's in love (a "detail" you ignored) she will simply .disappear forever? I have received many letters from people who have been a party to such a deal, much to their regret. If one could eliminate one factor —the natural mother's emotionalism, you would be right. But one can't. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

Graduation exercises were held at Kay's Field with Dr. JeTy L. Mars, associate director of American associa- •tion of colleges for teachers' education, from Washington, D.C., speaker. Mrs. Warrington, Mr. Warrington and their five month old son, Richard Lee reside in West Memphis, Ark. Family Lib Readers defend gay parenthood By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) From a young lesbian woman living in Denver: "After reading your column on 'Homosexual Foster Parents' I was surprised to see how such a young 'aware' man can be so blind. I am a lesbian woman who came out through the Woman's Movement. And your first two paragraphs sent me through the ceiling. "No, 1 am not a mother, but I do have a few friends who art- still grieving over their children who were taken from them because their mother was discovered to be a lesbian. It seems the courts have the same opinion you do. However, did it ever occur to you that we children were forced into a heterosexual home environment purely on the basis of our parents' choice?.. . "Even though you say you are not unsympathetic to the humiliation we have suffered, I feel from this article that you still regard homosexuality as our society does, a sickness, as deviant and unacceptable behavior. When I think of it 1 wonder what is sick'.' After all I think the figures show that 90 per cent of all children sexually molested are molested by heterosexual men. And how many cases are there of teenage girls being raped by their fathers, stepfathers, or foster fathers? So 1 ask you, is the heterosexual environment a healthy one for children? "No,'the Gay life is not always so gay, but think of all the lonely heterosexual people: football widows, couples spending 40 years together never talking to one another, the swinging single. After 23 years in the heterosexual world I decided there had to be something better, and there certainly is." From a Wichita, Kan. mother: "Heterosexuals have no more 'right' to expose then- children to the narrowness of the heterosexual orientation than homosexuals have to expose their children to the conflicts society heaps on them It is not a question of rights at all. There simply is no way to keep from imposing adult conflicts on children .. It is "nonsense that children of lesbians must be spared conflicts. Far better - and more honest and realistic - to teach them that there are a number of sexual orientations m the world, just as there are number of religions. "Are you suggest ing that people must lake their children to the church of the majority, so they won't experience conflicts with the larger society'' Again, nonsense. Sexual orientation is equally personal, if not more so. And the heterosexual parent is nicleed imposing one viewpoint upon the child "There is little data as yet as to how children raised bv lesbians 'turn out.' However, their record can hardly be an> worse ihan that of the heterosexuals. Almost all the criminals, dropouts and all the Watergate scoundrels, as far as is known, were raised by heterosexual people. So The moral of these letters is this: heterosexuahty does not insure happiness, companionship or even sanity. It does insure the perpetuation of the human race, such as it is, and holds out the hope for maintaining what has been called "the most humane, effective and economical system ol child cart- known to man" - the family.

My Pointer is that while knitting I badly needed something to mark off counted stitches (I think bone rings leave spaces). I hit on the idea of sticking two ring paper enforcements together. They cost little, are very light and can be left on if needed and snipped off when desired. — MRS.A.M.F. DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with repairmen and/or others who promise to come at a certain time or on a specified day and then do not show up or may come two or three hours late. A homemaker also has things to do and business to see to but cannot do them because she has to stay at home waiting. - MILDRED. DEAR POLLY - Mrs.R.C.A. wanted to know how to get rid of spiders and their webs that are between her windows and storm windows. We place a few moth balls between such windows and never have any spiders. — MRS.J.S. DEAR POLLY - I suggest that Mrs.R.C.A. put some leftover pieces of hand soap between her regular and storm windows and she will no longer be bothered with spiders. This, of course, takes for granted there is room. If there is not room the larger pieces might be shaved and work just as well. I put small leftover pieces of soap under the beds or anywhere 1 have have had spiders and it helps. - VERA. DEAR POLLY - Use an old but clean toothbrush to style your wig. It is just the right size. Polly's Pointers are the first thing I look for in the paper. - DORA. Thanks for those nice words. - POLLY. DEAR POLLY - Your economy-minded readers need never buy another washcloth. A bath towel that is beginning to fray along the edges will make eight washcloths. Measure with a favorite to gel the right size after cutting off the selvage and fringe. Tear or cut into squares and pull loose threads to make a short fringe that will grow longer as they are used. Also save money on hot water and detergent by washing towels and washcloths separately from the other clothes. They are not so heavily soiled and can be washed in cold water with half the usual amount of detergent. Agitate just three or four minutes. Almost all the wear and tear on towels comes from laundering and washing. This shorter cycle should make them last longer. - NANCY.
