Monday, October 14. 19*4 HOl'E (ARK.) SfAU Page three Janice Miller is betrothed MILLER-MURPHY Mr. and Mrs. R J Miller of Willisville announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daugher Janice Ruth to Paul Murphy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Murphy of Washington. Better stay away from that daughter-in-law By Abigail Van Buren © 1974 by The Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: A man signed "Borrowed Time" asked in which state he could marry his former daughter-in-law. You replied that since they were not related by blood, he could marry her in ANY state. Not in Massachusetts! I quote from Section 1, Chapter 207 of the Mass. General Laws: ' • ••"No'mah shall marry his mother, grandmother, daughter, • 'granddaughter, sister, stepmother,' grandfather's wife, son's wife, grandson's wife, wife's mother, wife's grandmother, wife's daughter, wife's granddaughter, brother's daughter, sister's daughter, father's sister or mother's sister." RESPECTFULLY YOURS, PAUL W. CORRIGAN ATTORNEY AT LAW: LYNN, MASS. DEAR MR. C: Yours was the first of umpteen hundred letters I received to signal my error. I admit that I shot from the hip on that one, using only common sense and simple logic. (It was understandable to me why people related by blood ties should not marry, but why extend that law to those related by marriage?) The second letter pointing out my erroneous advice came from Angela Haven Bonin (also of Lynn, Mass.), and the third was from Alan I. Alford, of Alford, Tuck and Pozzi in Sudbury, Mass. (I quit counting when they got up into the hundreds.) From Judge Blair C. Wood of Waterloo, Iowa came this word: "If a man should marry his son's former wife, the marriage would be void in Iowa. And if they lived together after the marriage, he would be subject to a penalty of 25 years in the penitentiary for incest." (Why only HIM, Judge? How about HER?) Then, Rabbi Samuel Friedman, my honorary consultant on Jewish law, wrote from Asheville, North Carolina: "On all other affairs, I yield to brains, beauty and a blessed writer, but please bear in mind that a Jewish man is forbidden by law to marry his daughter-in-law." Henry N. Berry III, Cumberland County Attorney, mode the following contribution: "Your column has been read and enjoyed by us in Maine for many years, but please be advised, Abby, that if 'Borrowed Time' plans to marry in Maine, he may become involved in an illegal relationship. I quote from Title 19, Section 31, of the Maine Revised Statutes: 'No man shall marry his son's wife and no woman shall marry her husband's father.' Worse yet was the news from Samuel G. Kerall, of Johnston and Shores, attorneys in Birmingham, Alabama: "I would suggest that you retract the advice you gave 'Borrowed Time' immediately. Otherwise you may find yourself charged as an accessory before the fact to the crime of incest. Here in Alabama that might result in your becoming a guest of our lovely state for one to seven years." (Thanks, Sam. Please regard this as an official retraction. I love Alabama, but I wouldn't want to live there under the above-mentioned circumstances.) And as if I didn't have enough trouble, Dan Bartley, of Bartley & Harrington, Attorneys in Louisa, Kentucky, wrote: "If you insist on practicing law, please do it correctly! 'Borrowed Time' said that he wanted to marry his daughter-in-law in order to make her the sole heir to his estate. You completely ignored that fact. You should have informed him that he could make those provisions in a will. He didp't have to marry the girl." Well dear readers, I earned the roasting I received from hundreds of lawyers, legal secretaries, law students, and readers who just happened to know more about it than I 'in the future when it comes to legal problems, I promise to consult one of my very able legal consultants. And would you believe that both my son and son-in-law are attorneys.' Everybody 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. For Abby's new booklet. "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212.

Call it what you will, it's American folk art at its liveliest and most spontaneous. At harvest time, neighbors traditionally gathered to help reap each others' crops. When they put down their hoes, they took up their fiddles—and "do-si-do" echoed from the barn rafters. A real community social, and lots of fun for all! Easy hospitality is still an American tradition, and today more than ever, the focus is on satisfying, fast-fixing food like Chicken-In-The-Straw. This tasty combination of cubed cooked chicken, Italian green beans, and canned tomatoes is cooked with can-convenient Beef Gravy and served over layers of corn bread. Onion salt and basil add extra /est. Since the Beef Gravy is made with natural beef juices, it imparts a rich, homestyle flavor—and "there's nary a worry of lumps 'n' such." Serve Chicken-In-The-Stra\v for real old-time goodness. CHICKEN-IN-THE-STRAW 2 cans (10'.2 ounces each) Beef Gravy 2 cups cubed cooked chicken 1 package (9 ounces) frozen Italian green beans, cooked and drained In saucepan, combine all ingredients except corn bread. Heat; stir occasionally. Serve over corn bread. Makes about 4 cups. 1 2 cup drained chopped canned tomatoes 1 2 teaspoon onion salt 4 teaspoon basil leaves, crushed Corn bread Christmas Fair planned by EHC MRS.

A flick of the finger sets this novel book rack, into motion, so you can conveniently make your selection from any one'of thi four spinning compartments. If books are not your fancy, you also can store audio tapes or 45-rpm records in the unit, For this project you can use a fine cabinet-grade veneer or ordinary fir plywood. You'll need a piece of V4-inch stock, 4' square; also, some VA" finishing nails, glue and a 6" lazy- Susan swivel bearing. With the exception of the scrolled cuts on the end pieces and the radius cuts on the base corners, the job calls for simple, but precise straight cuts. A table saw such as Rockwell's 9-inch Homecraft table saw, equipped with a plywood blade, will enable you to breeze right through the straight cutting. For the curved cuts you'll want to use a jig saw with a hollow ground blade. This type of blade will leave a very smooth edge, minimizing splintering. The top is made up of two identical units, each consisting of a cross piece with a pair of end pieces attached in alternate directions; one to the left, one to the right. A half-lap notched joint is used to join the two cross pieces. This is simply a slot '/2-inch wide cut from each cross piece, half the height of the stock. In one cross piece the notch is cut out of the lower half and in the other, out of the uper half. The cross pieces measure 6" x 10V4". Cut four end pieces 6 inches square; then jigsaw the scrolled tfc - -Photo by Wanda Williams with Star camera District Livestock Show Coliseum.

Glue and nail a pair of ends lo each cross piece; then join the cross pieces by interlocking the notches into each other. Glue and nail the assembly onto a bottom piece ll'/i" square. Set and fill the exposed nails. The sub-base is a piece 11 f /4 " square with a two inch radius curve cut at each corner. The swivel bearing is easily attached by drilling a 1" dia. hole in line with the screw holes in the swivel flange. This hole is necessary only on the base to allow a screwdriver access for mounting the upper flange of the swivel to the bottom of the rack. Attach the swivel to the base first; then invert the rack and, using the access hole for clearance, drive in the attaching screws/ If you use hardwood veneer, you can apply a clear finish. With fir plywood, you may want to apply either paint or an antique finish. For free detailed plans, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope' to the Home Workshop, P. O.
