Y. Niws Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: A reader signed "Ms W." requests a non-sexist salutation for business letters. Why is a salutation necessary at all? It should have been discarded years ago with such useless phrases as. "Beg leave to reply to your favor of the 15th instance," and "your most obedient servant." "Dear Anybody" is both redundant and archaic, along with the traditional "Very truly yours." which, in a business letter, is the ultimate in hypocrisy DEAR MISS B.: Yes. Many non-sexist salutations for business letters were submitted. For example: "Gentle- person," or the plural, "Gentlepeople." Others suggested the bright and cheery, "Uood morning!" (How about those who don't get around to reading their mail until 4 PM?) Try, "Dear Person." (That's too impersonal, like "Occupant.") Also, "Hi there," or would you believe, "Howdy. Come to think of it, "Dear Sir or Madame," or "To whom it may concern" are beginning to look better to me. DEAR ABBY: After 13 years of marriage, my husband and I were divorced for the age-old reason. Another woman. We have two children, 10 and 12, which made ii a very painful ordeal for me. My husband married the "other woman." He has visitation rights, which are fair enough, but when he comes to pick up the children, he and his wife and her eight-year-old son come right to my door. 1 feel I have to invite them in, and then I have to ask them to sit down. Once they are seated they stay and stay until 1 feel compelled to offer them some refreshments. Meanwhile, making small talk with them is sheer torture because I feel so uncomfortable in this woman's presence I can hardly look at her at my husband's side without wanting to burst into tears. It seems an eternity until they take my children and leave. They sometimes come back "early," and again they are all at my door, expecting to be invited in. These visits are a terrible strain for me. 1 can't help how I feel, Abby. Am 1 wrong? How should I handle this? STILL HURTING DEAR STILL: Ask your lawyer to write your husband a letter suggesting that he either pick up the children alone, or leave his wife and stepchild in the car. You're not wrong. There's no reason why you should be cast in the role of an unwilling hostess. DEAR ABBY: I was pleased to see that you view reading a spouse's mail as a violation of privacy, and place it in the same class with reading a child's diary or listening in on the extension telephone. Those are exactly my sentiments. 1 don't want to see my wife's mail, and that means even after it has been opened and is in plain view. When my wife has had a telephone conversation, I never ask: "Who was that, dear?" I figure if she wants to tell me, she will volunteer the information. I offer you free of charge my father's philosophy: "Don't ever put another person in the position of having to lie to you." VALUES PRIVACY DEAR VALUES: We agree-too point. But no one "has to" lie. Simply say: "I prefer not to answer that question." 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. For Abby's booklet, "How to Have a Lovely Wedding," send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 1U2 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Cal. 90212 Wr*.
