Family Lib Eyeball to eyeball with a spoiled brat By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) The new term brings a new crop of friends. This year's bunch includes one spoiled child — the type who makes people say tl.ay hate kids. "This is Susan," Josh announces as he ushers in a well- dressed, unsmiling child. Lisa says "Hello." Susan ignores the greeting. Rachel comments that Susan is wearing a pretty dress. "I know it," Susan replies. That night Susan calls, on her own phone, to invite herself over for lunch. Against my better judgment I say O.K. Lunch time comes. I've grilled hot dogs as a special treat. I put a sizzling wiener on Susan's plate. She curls her lip in disdain and says, "Yuck! Where's the potato chips?" Barely able to contain my fury, I tell Susan, "There are no potato chips for children who forget to say 'please.'" After trying to stare me down, Susan mutters the word 'please.' "The magic word," I say triumphantly, giving her some chips with more than the hint of a gloat. A day later Susan invites Rachel and Josh to her house for lunch. Rachel returns with the information that Susan has two bedrooms — one for sleeping and one for her multitude of toys. With a touch of envy in her voice, Rachel says that Susan has her own television set. "Does Susan have any brothers or sisters?" I ask in my best count-your-blessings fashion. Rachel shakes her head no and adds, "Maybe that s why she's spoiled." A solid week followed of Susan ordering people around, doing the exact opposite of what she was asked, accepting compliments as if they were her due and ending any conversation that displeased her by turning her back to the offending party and sticking her thumb in her mouth. But when Susan heard we were planning to go swimming at the YMCA pool, she turned on such a pleasant demeanor that I said she could come, too. ,.,,.. u At the pool I told the four children that they must observe the rules of pool safety - one of which was no running along the edge of the pool. Two minutes later Susan was running along the edge of the pool. „ "Susan, no swimming for five minutes, I ordered. "No," came her reply. "You will sit down," I said, forgetting every rule ot behavior modification and all the advice about avoiding power struggles with children. ..... "You can't make me," Susan shot oack, looking me straight in the eye. . I stalked over to her, my patience atter 10 days ot this sooiled brat at an end, and said, "Susan, you will sit down for five minutes not because you want to but because I say you must You have chosen to ignore the rules of safety and you must'accept the penalty!" Susan stared at me as if this were the first time that anyone had ever dared talk.to her this W Susan plopped down, turned her back with the thumb-in- mouth punctuation, but she did remain for five minutes. Yes ves I know - children's rights and all that - but not at the'expense of adult rights, and civilization.

She'll marry him for the fourth time By Abigail Van Buren 6 1 »7 4 by th» Chteigo Trtbun* DEAR ABBY: I am a fairly intelligent, nice-looking woman of 33, who is getting married for the fourth time. Before you jump to the conclusion that I am fickle or a poor judge of character, let me tell you that I am marrying the same man for the fourth time., We don't have any kids, so that's not why we keep going back to each other. ' / Don't send me to a shrink. I've been to one. We've also seen marriage counselors. They have all told us the same thing. We NEED each other. We've tried living together (without marriage) and even living with others. Ii didn't work. We fight a lot, but when we kiss and makeup it's better than ever. When he hits me, I hit him back, and believe me, I can take care of myself. He's not a meal ticket and neither am I. We could both make it on our own. Abby, have you ever heard from couples who married each other more than once, and learned the secret of making that marriage work? If so, please let me know. 1 can't live WITH him and I can't live WITHOUT him. Thanks. FOURTH TIME AROUND DEAR FOURTH: All right, I'll try. Readers? Is it really more wonderful the second time around—with the same partner, that is? DEAR ABBY: As far back as I can remember, I've wanted to be a school teacher. Now my dream has come true. I would like to make a lasting impression on my students. What should I stress that will be truly helpful to sixth graders? I want to inspire them to learn. NEW TEACHER DEAR TEACHER: Tell them to read, read, read and read some more! There is a treasury of knowledge—free for the taking on the shelves of our public libraries. The person who DOES NOT read has no advantage over the person who WILL NOT read. DEAR ABBY: Do you think it's all right for a bride to do the Polish apron dance at her reception if neither one of the couple is Polish? This is the dance where the male guests throw money into the bride's apron for the privilege of dancing with her. I know of one wedding where nobody was Polish, but they did the dance anyway because every little bit helps when a young couple is just starting out. GETTING MARRIED DEAR GETTING: If you want to take up a collection at your wedding reception, this is as good a way as any. DEAR ABBY:When I,graduated from high school,, a well-to-do uncle who lived'in Portland seni me a check tor $100.1 put it in my billfold intending to bank it. I failed to write and thank him for it immediately as I should have. I didn't get around to banking it (or trying to) until three months later. When I tried to bank the check, I found that he had stopped payment on it! Then I received a letter from my uncle saying that since he didn't hear from me for three months, he assumed the check had been lost. In a sense, it was. I "lost" 100 bucks, but I learned a lesson about promptness I'll never forget. NORTH HIGH, '48 Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

Coming and Going Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Pressley returned to their home Wednesday in Muscle Shoals, Ala. after a few days in Hope where they sold the home of Mrs. Pressley's mother the late Mrs. G.B. Morris and disposed of her personal effects. Helpful Hints CHANGE FILTERS A furnace filter should be changed several times a year—or washed, if it is a washable type. A duly filter obstructs air flow, reduces efficiency of furnace operation and wastes energy. KEEP VENTS OPEN When the ceiling of a home is well insulated, attic vents should be left open winter and summer. Winter ventilation lessens the possibility of moisture condensation on the underside of the roof. Summer ventilation keeps the attic cooler. >•*•••••• HOLIDAY INN ANNOUNCES.... ADDING BUFFET SERVICE!
