Brad Rogers and Mr. How to respond to news of divorce By Abigail Van Buren <• 1974 by The Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: What do you say to a dear friend when shfi tells you that her married daughter is coming home "for good?" I was speechless because there had never been a clue that all was not going well. -.:,;.• ,.. ,.....•;, ,,..;-n-.,-. (U The cfa'ughter was'the'apple of her parents' eye,'and only five years ago she made such a promising marriage. She has a darling two-year-old child. I was lost for words, Abby. I automatically said, "I'm so sorry." But if the marriage had to fail, I suppose it's better that it ended while they were both young enough to start over again. But what does a friend say in such a situation? NO WORDS DEAR NO: The less said the better. It's a kindness to ask no questions. And the most generous thing you can do for your friend (and her daughter) is to keep the young divorcee in mind should an eligible bachelor appear on the scene. Also include the daughter whenever possible, to keep her socially active. DEAR ABBY: I am a widow in my late 50s and I'm in love with a man who is younger. We work in the same office. He is married and has a family and he thinks he's an alcoholic. Me has come to my house after work on a Friday, gets drunk and stays drunk the whole weekend. Then he goes to work, goes home and stays sober for two or three months, lie also attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. I don't think he is a true alcoholic. I think he just likes to drink. I always have liquor available for him at^y house which his wife does not. (She goes to those dumb meetings for wives of drunks.) This has been going on for three years. How much longer must 1 wail before he leaves his wife and comes to live with me on a permanent basis? 1 love him and I believe he loves me. He says he loves his wife, but I think he feels pity and maybe some loyalty and obligation to her because she- stuck with him for over 20 years. Answer soon. I trust your judgment on most matters. WEEKEND WIFE DEAR WIFE: I think that he will never leave his wife for you. For one thing, he probably loves her deeply. She's proven that she loves him enough to stick with him. (Those "dumb" meetings she attends are Al-anon, whose function it is to teach spouses of alcoholics how to cope with the many problems alcoholism creates.) You, on the other hand, are a convenience and a bad habit. Do the man and yourself a favor, and quit providing him with a handy haven for his weekend binges. DEAR ABBY: Please tell me if you think I misrepresented myself. I was divorced many years ago. I never remarried. My husband remarried, but his wife died. Well, a few weeks ago, My ex-husband died, and I referred to myself as a "widow." I was severely criticized for this. I feel that since we are now separated by the grave and not the divorce court, I am a widow. I was told in no uncertain terms that I am a DIVORCEE and not a widow. I'll leave it to you. RECENTLY WIDOWED DEAR WIDOWED: Sorry, but regardless of how you "feel," you are not a widow. Technically, a widow is a woman who has lost her husband by death. A man can have any number of ex-wifes-but only one widow. If he dies unmarried, he leaves no widow. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box Ng. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, PJease. For Abby's booklet, "How to Have a Lovely Wedding, send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills. Calif. 90212. Well Kept Install a shelf around the perimeter of your bedroom a few feet below the ceiling to help organize clutter. It will put more items within reach and speed things up while dressing. Clean and Neat A scarf worn under a coat adds a fashion accent and protects the coat collar from discoloring when you perspire or From showing make-up traces. —Hope (Ark.)

Family Lib A woman for all seasons By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne) She was 100 per cent Aryan in the files that the Nazi government was compiling. Neither a Jew nor a Communist. Then why didn't she turn the other way when "undesirables were marched off to camps and say "Heil Hitler" like her classmates? Hiltgunt Zassenhaus attributes her resistance to the Third Reich, which culminated in the rescue of 1,200 Scandinavian prisoners, to her family: "A father who taught his children to live by their convictions and a mother who said, 'Only what you give, you'll have.' Now a physician living in Baltimore, Dr. Zassenhaus has been knighted in Norway and Denmark and nominated for a Nobel Prize. She recounts her spellbinding and inspiring story in "Walls" (Beacon Press), a new adult book which you will also want your sons and daughters to read. In 1938 Hiltgunt's rare degree in Scandinavian languages earned her the "seal" of the city of Hamburg and a position as censor in the Hamburg post office. She was to check all mail going to Scandinavian countries and destroy any letters from Jews in Polish ghettos which pleaded for food or help. Instead of destroying the letters, she smuggled them out to a shipping agent who would remain a valuable ally. One day the letters from the ghetto stopped. "What has happened to the Jews?" Hiltgunt asked the colonel in charge. He did not look up. "We are not here to ask questions," he said. "We follow orders." At that moment she struggled to resist the walls of despair that threatened to close in. She longed for a purpose to keep her passion for freedom aljve. She found it when she became the censor for the Scandinavian political prisoners being held in Hamburg. . Working with a Norwegian minister, Hiltgunt smuggled in vitamins, food, medicine and hope to these prisoners. All through the bombing of Hamburg — even when two Gestapo informers were moved into her home — she doggedly continued her medical studies and her private mission. She kept a careful file of all the prisoners, vowing not to let go of their existence as had happened with the Polish Jews. When the prisoners were transferred to other parts of Germany, she risked her life to travel to them on trains regularly attacked by strafing planes. Hearing of Hitler's plan to execute all political prisoners before the war ended, she got word to Count Folke Bernadotte of the Swedish Red Cross who negotiated with Himmler. The prisoners would be released if the Red Cross could find them. Hiltgunt's meticulous records provided the life-saving information. All of the Scandinavian prisoners were found and taken to neutral Sweden to await the end of the war. Shortly afterwards, thousands of political prisoners all over Germany were shot in camps, hanged or loaded alive on ships that were sailed out to sea and sunk. Even in Hitler's Germany there were the rare individuals, like Hiltgunt Zassenhaus who acknowledged their kinship with the victims, saving many who would have died, proving that in a world of unrelieved cruelty, even one person's compassion can make a difference.
