She's Just Not The 'Mingling Kind' Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: For years several of us women in the neighborhood have had coffee together regularly. A newcomer has joined our group ant', she is our problem. Abby, you know how women are. They talk about different things, and people, and so on. Well, nobody can say a word about anything with Mrs. Newcomer butting with, "Were you there? Can you prove it? From where do you get your information?" This puts a crimp In our coffee parties as no one wants to go on, the witness nstand and take an oath on a Bible that what she says is gospel. . We would like to drop Mi's. Newcomer from our group as she is not our kind. But how? OLD TIMERS DEAR OLD TIMERS: I doubt if you will be troubled with Mrs. Newcomer much longer, for she will soon conclude that you are not her kind. And frankly, if I had to choose between her company and yours, I'd choose hers. DEAR ABBY:' When my married daughter visits me I always give her the best sleeping accommodations in the house, but when I vist her for a few weeks she puts me on her davenport or any make-shift place. Tills year she has written to difficult for me. Also I have winter, she will put me in her unfinished, unheated attic room. There Is no bath on that floor and I had a stroke two years ago which makes walking stairs difficult for me. Als o I have weak kidneys and need to use the bathroom during the night. My daughter is kind and good in other respects, but I am terribly hurt by these sleeping arrangements and am thinking strongly of not visiting her this winter. Whay would you do? HURT MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: I would stay home. DEAR ABBY: I have written to you several timse before but have yet lo see one Of my letters in the paper so will be surprised if I see this one. The letter signed "Rube'a Wife" has prompted me to write now. I know what that lady means when She says She feels that her husband was cheated as far as affection from her is concerned, as I. myself would much rather go to bed with a good book than with my husband. How we ever happened to have three children, I can't quite figure out. I would not bother me one bit if my husband came home and told me he had found a nice woman about his own age who was able to give him more love and 1 affection than I can. I would ask only, "Is she clean? Then I would just go out and get another book, and say, like Rube's wife, "No one would have to know." Sign me "BOOKWORM" DEAR ABBY: This is for "STUMPED," who didn't know what to say when she was asked why her husband didn't go to church with his family. "Stumped" said she wasn't happy to be married to a heathen. Abby, one is not a heathen simply because he doesn't go to church. A person can go to church every day in the week and twice on Sundays, but if he doesn't have God In his heart and respect for his fellow man, all his going is for naught. I know such people and I have more respeot for stay- at-home believers than church- going hypocrites. Sign me ... "UNSTUMPED" IN W. VA. Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069 and enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. SHOULDERS WHITE? Allow no dandruff to destroy the charm of a pretty hairdo. There are many preparations with which to combat this problem. Be sure to keep one on hand—or we should say "on head"—at all times.
