DEAR ABBY The Real Test Of Love Abigail Van Buren HUMOR '• ELECTIONS A congressman was asked how he was elected. He replied that everyone who knew him voted fr his opponent and those who knew his opponent voted for him. "I guess he just knew more peple than I did, so I won." DEAR ABBY: Recently our daughter was married in an all- white church wedding which was one of the most beautiful ever held in this town. It was a dream come true. To say she looked like an "angel" is not just a mother's pride, I can describe the joy that was in her father's heart and mine. When the newly weds returned from their honeymoon, they calmly told us to expect' a grandchild in FIVE MONTHS! That means our daughter was a good three months pregnant when she donned her wedding gown and veil. Abby, she knew it all along. How could she have done this to us? We loved this child more than life itself. HEARTSICK MOTHER DEAR HEARTSICK: The real test of love is to love our children when they need our love the most. It's easy to love them when they do everything right, and make us "proud" of their accomplishments. But when they disappoint us (as children do occasionally) we can prove the strength of our love by showing compassion, understanding and forgiveness. Try it. You'll have fewer regrets. DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and my husband is , 22. We get along very well but there is the problem: He has very long hair, and I mean it is practically down to his shoulders. During the daytime he keeps it nicely combed, but at night it is all over the place and it drives me crazy. When I mention a net he gets mad. What should I do? RUNNING OUT OF PATIENCE DEAR RUNNING: I agree, that man of your sneeds a net — maybe both kinds. You'll probably run out of patience before' he runs out, of hair, so let him know he's no treat to sleep with and let him make a choice. DEAR ABBY: I'd like to put in my two cents' worth about the woman who didn't want her hiisband present when she gave birth because she didn't want him to see her "naked" in front of other people. Of all the reasons she could have thought up, that is the dumbest^ In the first place she is not naked, and besides, she is there to have a baby, not to make a stag film. And 1 as for your advice in this case, Abby, boo and hiss. Having a baby is a joint effort. She is not doing her thing, she is doing their thing. Only once in history did a woman have a child alone, and that was 2,000 years ago in a stable. Sincerely, P.N. (HOLLYWOOD) DEAR ABBY: This is for Ru thie, who objects to. getting all dolled up in her best clothes to be entertained in somebody's cellar recreation rooms: Our cellar happens to be a lot larger than our living room, has more chairs, facilities for elbow-bending, dancing, pool playing, etc. Our friends have better taste than to wear black velvet and rhinestones to a cellar party, neither do they wear moccasins and jeans to a formal affair. If Ruthie's cup of tea Is six people looking bored and 1 elegant in the living room, fine. She isn't being forced to com» to the type of party that is our mug of suds, and nobody is going to miss her. Sincerely. TOOTS, OLEAN N. Y. 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. For Abby's Booklet, "How To Have a Lovely Wedding,". Send' $1.00 To Abby, Box 69700, Lbs Angeles, Cal., 90069. — —- I The midiskirt is fast gaining popularity in coats and . may eventually replace the mini.
