TIMELY QUOTE By PHIL PASTORET The roller coaster of aspira- t i o n and disillusionment is amusing to the extreme conservative, who thought the aspirations were silly in the first place. It gives satisfaction to the left-wing nihilist who thinks tlie whole system should be brought down. But it is a devastating whipsaw for serious and responsible leaders. —John Gardner, secretary of Health, Education and Welfare. DEAR ABBY: Please print this and help wake up a mother who is neglecting her 4-year-old son. She happens to be my divorced daughter. She works, taking him to a nursery Monday thru Friday. She gets home each day at 5:30 p.m. gives him supper and puts him in bed. ON Monday she starts trying to find someone to keep the boy from Friday after work until late Sunday evening, so she can kick up her heels and act like a teen- ager at some cheap dance hall. Abby, she is 24. This little boy begs to go to Sunday school, but our daughter won't take him. She says PERSONALS Mr. and Mrs. Theodore A. Burton of Rockford are hte parents of a son born this morning in that city. He weighed seven pounds and one ounce. The grandmother is Mrs. Opal Burton of Route 2, Mt.

Smith of Wayne City was a visitor in Mt. Vernon Friday. Dominic Pijut of Scheller transacted business in the King City yesterday. he has plenty of time for that, and she has her own life to think about. She never takes the child anywhere. His grandmothers take him occasionally, but he needs a mother's love. His daddy is as bad as his mother. He promises to come and see him, and the poor kid looks in the window for him all day Sunday and no daddy shows up. What can I do? CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: If you can't make your daughter realize what an injustice she is doing her son during his impressionable,. formative years, take the child whenever you can and try to compensate for the love and attention he is being denied by his parents. (I've always said, before marriage mental tests should be required by law and not blood tests.) DEAR ABBY: It was bad enough when my girl friend found out about my wife. But when my wife found out about my giii friend I really was in trouble. To make matters worse these two have become very good friends and they have coffee together about once a week. What do you think they're cooking up? HARRY DEAR HARRY: Your goose, probably. DEAR ABBY: You've got to help me. I'am an 18-year- old 1 * K I POLLY'S POINTERS girl who is going steady with a 22- year- old guy who keeps after me to "pixwe my love." We've gone, together for a year , and AbDy, I DO love him, but I just can't see myself "proving" it the way he wants me to. He says it's not wrong if two people love each other and plan to get married some day. But Abby, I just wasn't raised that way. We fight about this all the time. He's really a swell guy, and I'd give my right arm for him. What should I do? BLUE EYES DEAR BLUE EYES: Tell him to be a man, "prove" his love and control himself. And tf lie Van Bnren still keeps after you, he's not: worth your right arm. What lie needs is a right hook.

For Children Natty Bumppo, also called Leatherstocking, Deerslayer and Hawkey e, was .the hero of James Fenimore Cooper's quintet of pioneer novels known as the "Leather-Stocking Tales," The World Almanac says. Natty became for Europeans a portrait of resourceful American frontier character and even the embodiment of the ideal of the natural man who opposes anything "agin nature" or "agin reason."

SPECIAL SEALTEST EGG NOG Quart 43 ^ HARRY'S MARKET 1010 Newby Phone 242-2840 By BETTY CANARY My friend Susan gasped in j disbelief when''she learned my 12- year- old Stu stayed home: from the junior high sock hop. j "You.didn't let him go?" she! asked, "Tell me what happen-! ed!" The truth is that nothing j much happened at all. He did make 14 telephone calls for-the main purpose of spreading the news. He had a snack that evening. Then, he stayed in his room working on a model of a grasshopper . "He stayed in his room?" Susan asked. "I wonder what he was thinking'' "How he was going to finish that grasshopper was what he was thinking — he ran out of glue." She grabbed my arm and asked, in a hoarse whisper, "Do you think he's been sniffing it" I had to tell her, that so far I have only normal- type problems with my seventh grader. Like the fact that his snack Friday night happened to be tlie casserole I'd prepared for Saturday's dinner. As for my refusal to let him attend the dance, he coped with it without running away from home or freaking out. The reports I had on the dance included the usual information about clusters of boys in one corner of the gym and groups of girls in another, se- jUavated by a fairly large crowd listening to the hand Some even danced. If my son's friends set' me as The Warden, well. I'll manage to bear up. As for tin mother who asked me in exasperation if I thought t h e school was holding an orgy, I'll have to reply, "No." I'll also have to say that I don't think dances are really fun for the kids — especially j seventh and eighth graders. Also to be frank, I cannot derive | pleasure from placing my child-! ren in a situation where they appear ridiculous. To be specific, most seventh graders are not ready for dances or that kind of socializing. Even if I didn't know this by instinct and by training, I'd have known it when my son told me, "Patty is the funniest girl!" "Really I said. "At lunch today she stuck carrots in my ice cream!" "Ugh," I said. "That's pretty funny all right." "But I fixed her. I scraped my applesauce into her orage juice!" "That's disgusting," I said. But, it's pretty normal, 1 thought. Patty is, if you will excuse an outdated expression, a pretty, wholesome girl. She is also a lucky one. Her mother is not pushing her (or allowing her to be pushed) into situations beyond her comprehension or central. She has it — the per- By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY — C.V.R. wanted to know how to clean a plastic shower curtain. I wash mine in the machine along with my white clothes and use bleach in the water. I put them in the dryer for a few minutes, also, along with other clothes. Do watch carefully and do not leave one in too long. I no longer have dirty- or yellow- looking shower curtains and change them often. -VIOLA DEAR POLLY -- I have used llie following method for washing a shower curtain for years. Put it in the washing machine with hot water and at least two bath towels. Add one third cup each of detergent and bleach. Run through the entire cycle but do not allow it. to spin dry. Rinse in plain hot water to which you have added a cup of vinegar. Do not rinse tlie vinegar out. This will NOT work without using the bath towels and may leave some wrinkles in some types of curtains. —-S. M. DEAR READERS There are shower curtain materials and shower curtain materials so you must try a small spot on any of them before trying any method. Bleach might affect some colored curtains. Some wash the shower curtain and then hang it out: of doors, hinse with the hose and then let it drip dry. -POLLY DEAR POLLY Do you know : how to dye Dacron?

I now have a dress box on the floor under the bed below my pillow. When I get ready for bed, I just pull the box out like a drawer. There is my cream, facial tissues, diary, flashlight, transistor radio vvitli ear phones, note paper, pencil and maybe even a fly swatter or fan. I use what I need and, in tlie morning, just push the "drawer" back under the bed. No mess, just convenience. -MRS. I.E. DEAR POLLY When I was a cheerleader I had to make "Booster Badges" for the students to pin on their clothes. I found that putting the pins in the badges was quite a job so I hied using a skirt marker. It worked beautifully. The pins went in so easily with a double hold and the job took a lot less time. This idea could be used when making name tays for parties and club meetings. --TARA DEAR POLLY The vacuum bottle that I have always carried to work no longer keeps drinks cold but does hold - liquids without leaking. Now I fill it with my favorite cold drink and put it in the freezer the night before. In the morning, I slip the vacuum bottle into a plastic bread bag and leave it in my car until noon. By that time it has thawed to a refreshing icy consistency and the bag keeps it from sweating on to the car seat cover. —MR. A.Y.B.
