DEAR ABBY: I had to laugh when I read the letter from tilt mother whose daughter would send home her bills to be paid without even inclosing a note. The mother thought this was very rude, which it was. But here's something that will raally slay you. My brother is on the Battleship U.S.S. New Jersey in Viet Nam. Once a month their captain serids a "newsletter" home to all the men's families. My brother addressed the envelope and slips the mimeographaed letter in without even signing his n?»me to it! He feels this is sufficient My mother wrote back once and told him she thought he was ingenious to get his captain to write his letters for him. Now we don't even get the "newletter" anymore.

No catalogues until next August, and | we can forget that card list — it's too late now to worry about the lost and forgotten. No point in remembering the wagon that never got delivered or the shopping bag that split as we went up the escalator. And we won't see the decorations on the street signs until next Halloween. , "They probably won't bother taking them down at all this year," a friend grumbled to me. "In fact. I predict that soon we'll see light poles and , telephone poles factory - painted of esemble candy canes and the wires will be installed with garlands and greenery already in place." I rather like that idea! Christmas all year could be a delightful thing. If only we could keep the reap spirit and not just the trappings. Wouldn't receiving a greeting card in June be a pleasure? One might even read the verse and enjoy the design instead of giving every message a cursory glance and then hanging it on one of those hideous little card trees or taping it to the edge of a doorway. As for the retailers getting our money, well, does a day go by when we're not spending money? At least most of us at Christmas time don't spend and buy with fear and regret. And usually we tiry for something cheery instead of utilitarian. We get our every day jobs done and then fit in a few more hours of rushing and working. That particular warm glow comes from having spent those hours for somebody else. In the evening of Christmas this is what we keep — the warmth of the pleasure we've given to others. We collect the discarded wrappings, stack the presents under the tree again — the broken plastic doll dishes along with the fluffy sweaters and the books — arid we sit by the fireplace and say, "It's all over for another year." We nkow that the candy and (Hilliard & Myers Photo) MR. AND MRS. HARRY ECHOLS the new ornaments are not the important things. However, because most of us are not poets we don't speak unusual words or beautiful phrases at the time We merely come close, to pur family and friends and feel thankful and glad.

Attractive sleeveless dresses can be marie with very large j napkins — two for the top part and four for a gathered skirt, or three for a slim skirt with perhaps a contrasting band around the bottom.
