DEAR ABBY: Believe it or not, my husband makes $35,000 a year, out we are so broko he has considered leaving his body to a medical school to save the expense of a funeral. The reason Freddy is so broke is because he was married twice before and he has to support three families. So now he is throwing a small fortune away on wives and children he never sees. It is like buying oats for a dead hoj'se. I don't say he should let his ex- wives and children starve to death but both his ex-wives are staying single and bleeding him for all he's worth, just to be mean. How can Freddy get the alimony and support money reduced? Don't tell us tc ask a layer. If it weren't for lawyers we wouldn't be this broke. "HARD UP" IN HOLLYWOOD DEAR HARD UP: When you want legal advice, your best bet te still a lawyer. The "hoi- sos" for whom Freddy is buying oats are still very much alive. And when a man changes "horses" three times, ho had better have enough 'oats" to stock Santa Anita. It looks like you picked a losing oat-burnor Kiddo. DEAR ABBY: Whoever said ti'onage years were the happiest didn't know what they were talking about. I am 13 and I am not the least bit happy. LIM. me explain. I car.'t date. I can't wear lipstick (even pale pink.) I can't wear nail polish (any kind).I can't shave my legs. I can't wear shorts or slacks. I can't wear low-back dresses. I can't listen to the radio or watch TV when I want to. I can't stay overnight at anybody's house. Mad enough? Weli, I have. T told my mother that she will regre' it some day. And she v.[)\ U-.o I've been thinking oi" running away. .[ would, but I don't have any place to go Please tell me what to do I don't deserve this. <\CK OF BEING BOSSED DF.AR SICK: Your mother is probably sick, too — of bein:; battled. The things you would like to do are privileges tcen- agevs earn by showing they <\v: nMlure enough to handle lliem. One of the first signs of maturity is the ability to accepi a decision without putting up an argument. Accept your mother's deisions for a while, and see what happens. DEAR ABBY: Thank you for telling the wife of a Mason to quit; pestering her husband for lb.'- 'secrets" of the lodge or she'd lose her Msson by do- I r : Hie first place, Masuniy is; NOT a secret society.

The only things which a member nwiy not disclose are the signs, j.'rips and means of recognition. My mother was against inv joining I he Masons at first, but when she learned thai Masonic work benefits the wives and families even more than its mom- •jors. ar.d in every degree, the fiomonitien of a member's duties is "to God, your familv, your country and yourself, she was proud that I had joined.
