6—A THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT„ VERNON. ILLINOIS THURSDAY. JANUARY 23, 1969 Socially Yours By NADINE Louie A. Harshbarger of Poplar Eluff, Mo., a former Mt. Vernon resident, is recuperating in the Veterans Hospital in that city, having suffered a congestive heart faliure on January 7. For old friends who would like to send a note of eheer his address is Room 4087, Ward 4A, Veterans Hospital, Poplar Bluff, Mo. He retired as a senior Master Sergeat after serving 20 years in the U. S. Air Force. -o- -o --o Mae and Nick Cohen write from South America to inform Mt. Vernon friends they have been having a wonderful time on a tour of South America. "Our trip so far is very enjoyable,' ' they said. "The food is very good and the sin is extra hot. The temperaf'.a is in the high 80's and 90's." They flew from Chicago last week and their first stop was Recife, Brazil. From there they stopped off at Salvador and were to go to Rio De Janeiro to take several tours and 1 see the night life. The rest of the itinerary includes a stop at Santos, Monti- video, Uruguay, and winds up at Buenos Aires, Argentina. From there they will fly back home. Society Editor's Stand-in Sees Follies Dress Rehearsal By BRENDA CULLI While Society Editor Nadine Allison was in bed with the "bug" last night, her substitute was fighting her way through the "high school age and under" group to see the dress rehearsal, or "special students' night" performance, of the Red Stocking Follies. What is the Red Stocking Follies? It's a community project, a real professional presentation, for one thing. The Women's Auxiliary at Good Samarit a n Hospital is sponsoring the Follies to help pay for the new coronary care unit at Good Sam. Director Victor Duntiere and New York Producer Jerome H. Cargill, combined with 125 citizens of Mt. Vernon and fabulous costumes from Las Vegas, have come up with a big treat for Mt. Vernonites attending either of the two performances — Thursday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. After sitting through an entire performance of the Follies, I can truthfully say that Mt. Vernon is loaded with hidden talent. I might even be willing to bet, for instanpe, that we have the best men's chorus line in Southern Illinois! There. is no "star" of the show as such — instead there are 125 "stars." From the surprise start to the surprise ending, the show is one that keeps the audience delightfully amused at all times. The show was very well received by the audience last night and shows promise of appealing even more to the more mature audiences who will attend Thursday and Saturday nights. After all, the cast contains only "over high school age" indi viduals, and there is only one college student in the entire cast. There is much more that I could say, but the Red Stocking Follies have to be ,seen to be appreciated. What I will say is this: If you want to spend an enjoyable evenig away from home, go see the Follies. I'm going again tonight! • Mt. V.

And God's Will Shall Be Done Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am a very religious person and believe that everything in this world happens as a result of God's plan and wishes. Am I wrong then to feel that when we fall ill, it is God's will and perhaps God is trying to punish us for some wrong-doing? That is why l never take any medicine. Why light God's decision? If you can answer this, you are a genius. H/.S FAITH DEAR HAS: I'm no genius, but ask yourself this: If your theory is right, why then did God give man the knowledge and power to conquer illness? DEAR ABBY: I have been happily married to a big, good- looking Irishman for six years. Wc have two children. Mickey is a bartender, and I have never had any objections to the hours, temptations or anything like that until lately. His boss has told him to play up to the single women who come in — greet them with a big smile, a hug, and maybe a little smooch, and keep them sitting and buying drinks. Well, there is one old widow who comes in nearly every njght and stays until they close up. She's in no shape to get bane on her own so Mickey takes her home. My question: Do you think Mickey has to go this far in the line of duty? MICKEY'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: How far does he go? DEAR ABBY: A married male cousin of mine and his wife of some 40 odd years were visiting my husband and me for the weekend. While fully dressed and preparing breakfast, |(|his married male cousin of mine came up behind me and surprised me with, a kiss. No hug. Just a kiss. I didn't think a thing of it, FOR SCHOLARSHIPS, COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT Junior Woman's Club Votes Several Grants The Mt.

HE even said I must hu"e encouraged my cousin and probably had further relations with him. I assure you no such thoughts crossed my mind. Three years later my husband is still making nasty insinuations and accusations, and I am sick to death of hearing about it. What is yiur opinion of all this? We were all between 65 and 70 y.nrs of age, and the "kisser" is now dead. Thank you. UNHAPPY . DEAR UNHAPPY: Don't be to hard on your husband on the chance that he is getting a bit addled in his old age. But when he starts with the ugly accusations, let him talk to himself. CONFIDENTIAL TO "C K": It's useless to tell a grown daughter, "If you ever get into any trouble come to me first." Foi if the proper relationship has been built over the years, she .will. If it hasn't, the words will be meaningless. Everybody has a problem. What's yours?
