DEAR ABBY . 'Daddy's Girl' Has Much To Learn Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: My father is 57, extremely handsome and a real charmer. Mother died two years ago and Daddy is now engaged to a very lovely 45- year- old widow. Abby, while Mother was living, I'm sure Daddy played around with other women. I am also sure he hasn't changed since then. I have grown very fond of Daddy's fiancee. She is a wonderful person and so much in love with Daddy that I'm sure she's blinded by some of his faults. I hate to see this fine woman hurt by marrying an incurable ladies' man. Don't you think ' I ought to tell her exactly what she 's letting herself in for? DADDY 'S GIRL DEAR GIRL: No. You can't possibly have all the facts related to your father's "other women." And! how can you be sure that he hasn't changed! (P. S. The most revealing part of your letter is your signature. Think about it!) DEAR ABBY: I am a 50- year old woman. I'm not bad looking, but I look my age. \ I 've been married for 28 years to a wonderful man who has only one fault. He resists change. Harold likes for me' to wear my hair the way I did back in 1939 and every time I 'd come home with a new hair-do, Harold would say, "Change it back. I like the old way better." My Mends tell me I look like something straight out of an old Ginger Rogers movie but what can I do? Harold isn't a tyrant, or anything like that, but he's set in his ways. Should I change it anyway and hope he changes Ms mind? "VO DEE DOO" DEAR "VO": No! One compliment from your husband is worth a hundred from strangers. If you can't change Harold's mind first, don't change your hair- do. (P. S. Personally, I think Ginger Rogers looked a lot better in 1939 than some of today's glamor girls in their "Look, ma no hair" hair-dos.) By NADINE ALLISON SOCIETY ICDITOK By BETTY CANARY V'e all know it is more blcs- : >ed to give than to receive. A"vl as they say. it's also a ; ;:c. iv of a lot easier. The one tiling so many find - difficult to give is a compli- ' ment . For evidence, take the i«!c!erly gentleman rocking on ; ' t:ie front porch while his wife .botes his favorite apple coffeecake in the kitchen. "I love i her so much," he confides, ! "tl-.&t sometimes I can hardly | ke; p from telling her!" J Children can give c o mpli- ; rr.«nts beautifully, and usually they accept compliments with grace. Tell a toddler how pretty those new shoes are and he will answer proudly, "I'm glad ; they're black!" Or, a little girl will agree wholeheartedly when you say how lovely she looks in her new blue dress. This Wild of thanks, really a compliment in return, tells you they 1 think you have marvelous taste : and are obvioulsy a most sen- sit le and discerning person. I The remarkable tiling is how many of these children grow i up to be adults with a master's degree in compliment slashing. Tell him, "Nice tie," and he will say, "Oh, r know these r.arrow ones are out of style row." Tell her, "That a perfect ha"!" and she will answer, "Oh I just hate the thing, but 1 ilidr.'t have time to shop for another. " And then there are the humble ones. If you are so unfortunate ( as to have one of this kind around, you'll end up-plea* "i rltt.g with them to believe you, haps yuu have no cousin Pam. a-.-lti'il'y forcing them into ac- >:>k I'm sure somewhere in your i"i"ing your kind words. swathed in white linens and 'Incre's my cousin, for exam- ci owned with a IS- piece alum- fir, who has this obsession a- burn steamer, you have a hos- I'j'.t giving family dinners.

"De- hciuus!" you say. "I don't know - I don' think Ihe meat is ground fine enough tms time." she answers. At this point one must make a decision.

Refreshments were solved by Facts and Fallicies about Jewelry FALLACY: By ART LAIRD The karat standard in gold refers to the weight, as the carat floes in diamonds. FACT: Carat means weight in gems, but karat in gold is a grading for fine gold content, .'M- karat being pure gold. Pure gold is too soil for practical use in jewelry, so combinations of copper, silver, zinc or nickel are added, Uakarat gold, for instance, lias V/i parts of copper and Vi part silver to 22 parts gold. Other standard grades are 18, It, 13 and 10 karat. CONCLUSION: For fine jewelry In gold, silver and precious stones, see our gift selection how. Fine jewelry is our business.
