Family Lib The best of all possible selves By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne) "Marriage is something I would consider only out of severe depression. The surest way to be alone is to get married. Surveys show the happiest people are single women or married men." When I read Gloria Steinem's words in "People" magazine my first impulse was to righteously defend marriage as the best of all possible worlds. Trying to be objective about Ms. Steinem's charge that marriage makes women unhappy, I had to admit there were corroborating studies, the most extensive one being the University of Michigan report based on 2,500 interviews entitled: "Americans View Their Mental Health." In so far as one can measure happiness, the 1960 Michigan Report and a 1970 survey by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare seemed to show that married women were getting the short end of the stick. (Married men, by the way, rated themselves happier than did single women.) Why are so many married women unhappy? The reasons are numerous, but one of the most common is false expectations, the belief engendered practically from birth that marriage is an end in itself. "Landing" a man was to be the final goal of an adolescence geared to attracting the opposite sex, rather than developing our other human potentials. Even today, when you ask a little girl what she wants to do when she grows up, the answer is often "get married". Marriage, as many of us have found to our dismay, is no more a finale than motherhood. Both experiences can be enriching or frustrating, depending on whether or not we continue learning, exercising and expanding our abilities, finding new sources of pleasure and satisfaction. After facing their disappointments, stagnation, and isolation and becoming aware of new possibilities, many women have marched out of their kitchens - and out of some marriages. . ... But let's not make the same mistake twice - the mistake of the easy answer. Just when we're realizing; that not all good flows from marriage and motherhood, let s not buy the notion that single women have a lock on pleasure and satisfaction or that all pleasure and satisfaction must be self- centered. When we go out to look for happiness as an automatic attribute of marriage or singleness or motherhood, we inevitably wind up like Voltaire's Candide, realizing that there is no best of all possible worlds. There is only, at any given moment, for any given person, a best of all possible selves, the self that is continually renewing its capacity for wonder and delight, the self that is continually growing. It would be a shame if the same women who did so much to dismantle the old female stereotypes should erect new and equally unreal mannequins, such as the perpetually contented working woman. If we start expecting fulfillment to come with a feminist mystique - avoiding marriage, remaining single and career-oriented - we may well wind up just as disappointed as Betty Friedan s suburban housewives who fell for the feminine mystique. Happiness may be a job, a two-room apartment, an empty refrigerator and a cat for regular companionship, but certainly not for everyone.

Fancy words for the same old story By Abigail Van Buren ' 1974 by The Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: Chuck and I have been married for 20 years. I was 17 and he was 18 at the time, and we were very much in love. I still am, but I'm not so sure ahout Chuck. Recently Chuck expressed the need for less togetherness and more freedom to explore and develop ourselves as individuals. We talked it out and he admitted that his basic need was sexual experimentation. Chuck says he doesn't want to deceive me, but his need has now become an obsession. We have three children and everything Lo stay together for. Chuck suggested one night out a week for both of us and no questions asked, I don't want another man, and I'm afraid if I agree to such an arrangement, Chuck might find someone else. Please advise me, CHUCK'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: Chuck has suggested in highfalutin language that you both swing with others. To my way of thinking (and regardless of what married swingers say) this would signal the beginning of the end. DEAR ABBY: I have had the same beauty operator for about three years. I like her work very much, but she does something that I find very irritating, and I am amazed that somebody hasn't called her on it. She addresses her patrons by their last names. "Johnston, I'll be with you in a moment. Smith, you're not dry yet. Jones, take the first dryer." Perhaps most of her customers are either used to it, or they don't mind, but I find it rather rude. Am I being petty? Or shouldn't, a hairdresser address her patrons as either Miss or Mrs.? CALL ME MRS. DEAR CALL ME: A hairdresser (and anyone else who performs a personal service) should address clients as "Miss" or "Mrs." unless she is asked to address them in some other way. If it irritates you, tell her. No sense getting hotter under the dryer. DEAR ABBY: 1 sure hope you can help me. I am 14, and already I am ruining my life. My problem is I am always lying to impress people, shock them, or just lo get attention, I guess. If I tell the truth, 1 stretch it so much, it's not the truth any more. I have told some terrible lies that got a lot of people into a lot of trouble. Once I scratched my own face up, and told everyone that my mother did it. just to get people to feel sorry for me. I don't take drugs or anything like that. I just lie and make up stories. I'm such a good liar I almost believe some of the things I make up. Please help me to stop lying, Abby. 1 don't have a friend in the world. DON'TSKiN THIS DEAR DON'T: Chronic lying is a symptom of a deeper emotional problem. You need professional counseling. If your school has a psychologist, ask to see him (or her). If none is available, ask your mother to arrange an appointment with someone at your local mental health clinic. The person who knows he has a problem and seeks kelp is well on the way to solving it. Good luck. Everyone has a problem. What's VOLLTS? For u personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No 69700, L.A.. Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

LAW ROGER ROBINSON PLUS "ACE ELI ROGERS" JKHARMACY TOPICS: Why does a doctor flash a light into a patient's eyes? By observing the tiny blood vessels in the eye he can find clues to disease elsewhere in the body. New synthetic sweetener, aspartame, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Unlike saccharin or cyclamates, it is metabolized as a protein, and even has a few calories — but it Is 180 tunes sweetner than sugar!

Some doctors suggest that, sun-tanning (carefully, in stages) can reduce blood pressure and blood serum cholesterol levels for days, or even weeks. But ALL recommend caution in the sun.
