Mrs. Pendergraft hosts Friday Music Club Newly-rich, he wants armor against gold- diggers By Abigail Van Buren <D 1974 by The CMcigo Trlbun* DEAR ABBY: I have had lots of problems but I never had one like this, so here goes my first Dear Abby letter. I am a 57-year-old working man. I lived with my folks most of my life, but they are both dead now, so I'm living alone. When I was younger I would ask girls for dates, but I got turned down, mostly because I wasn't very good-looking and didn't have much money. Being alone so much caused me to be kind of shy. I never enjoyed being alone, I just got used to it. Well, I took a chance on the state lottery, and won $100,000. I had never won anything in my life. I still can't believe it, but it is true. Now I've got so many friends (mostly women), I almost have to hide. The Friday Music Club met on October 25, in the home of Mrs. E.A. Pendergraft, with Mrs. Joe Eason and Miss Mary Anita Laseter as co-hostesses. The president, Mrs. Calvin Smith, called the meeting to order and Mrs. Gerald Keith led the Club in singing the hymn of the month, "Eternal Father, Strong to Save," and the federation hymn, accompanied by Mrs. B.C. Hyatt at the piano. Mrs. Harry McLemore presented Mrs. James McLarty with the past president's pin. The program, "Early Church Music", was presented by Mrs. McLarty. Several selections were presented by the Club chorus accompanied by Mrs. Hyatt. Mrs. Bob Bledsoe sang, "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need" and Mrs. Paul Henley sang, "Wondrous Love". A vocal duet, "Beneath a Weeping Willow's Shade" was brought by Mrs. Pendergraft and Mrs. Drake. A piano solo, "Enraptured I Gaze", by Hopkinson was presented by Mrs. Joe Eason. Mrs. Hyatt played a medley of hymnals by Lowell Mason. The orientation service was given by the president, after which the club recited the collect. After a brief business session the meeting was adjourned. Refreshments of chocolate cake, nuts, and coffee were served to nineteen members and one former member, Mrs. Paul Morgan, who was unanimously voted back into the club. to I would like some female companionship, but don't want end up married to some gold-digger. I don't have any experience at all when it comes to judging women, Abby, so how can I protect myself? E.B. IN ATTLEBORO, MASS DEAR E.B.: Don't go in for anything as permanent as marriage until you know the woman well enough to trust her completely. Then see a lawyer about a pre-nuptial agreement. (He'll explain it to you.) You took a chance on a lottery and won, and marriage is a bit of a gamble, too, but the better you know the candidate, the smaller the risk. DEAR ABBY: My daughter and her husband (married only a few months) both go to college and live with me. He is a fine young man and I like him, but he has one serious fault. He will not get up in the morning for his classes. It breaks my heart to see my daughter calling him, going back to their bedroom, shaking him, pleading with him, and wearing herself out trying to get him up in the morning. He was dropped from his 8 o'clock class because he missed so many classes. Naturally, he lost that credit. New he is sleeping through his nine o'clock classes! I have wanted to tell her to simply pour ice water on him, but I've used remarkable restraint staying out of this daily hassle. Any suggestions? MOM DEAR MOM: He's your daughter's problem, not yours. If she were wise, she'd wake him once only, set the alarm to give him a five-minute grace period, then go about her business. If he knows he has to get up—he will. And if he doesn't, let him suffer the consequences. DEAR ABBY: I wonder how many people realize the difference between the way HER mother is treated and the way HIS mother is treated? So many young husbands are so busy with earning a living that they leave such matters entirely to their wives, and consequently on Mother's Day, HER mother will be honored, and when (and if)it's convenient, HIS mother will be honored. Another thing. Let's have a Grandma's Day for HIS mother. With so many broken marriages these days, the paternal grandmother loses all contact with her grandchildren. It's always HER mother who gets to see the grandchildren, and do for them. HIS mother looses out and is soon forgotten. My son is married and divorced. His wife has the children, and now it's almost as though I have no grandchildren. Maybe if you print this, it will be seen by mothers who don't realize the hurt some grannies suffer from divorce. Thank you. MISSING MY GRANDCHILDREN DEAR MISSING: When marriages break up, there is usually bitterness on the part of the wife. And just or not, she usually get the kids. There are exceptions, but the ex-wife doesn't usually feel to kindly toward her ex-in-laws, and part of the punishment she feels "his family" has coming is depriving them of their grandchildren. Everyone has a problem. What's youre? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q.—I bought three pieces of unfinished furniture and want to give them a blond finish. I know you have to use white paint. Can you tell me how to go about getting the right effect? I don't know what kind of wood is in the furniture, but it is a light color. A. — There are several different methods of getting a so- called blond finish, of which there are many varieties. The simplest is to apply a diluted white paint (about half paint, half turpentine) and then, while it is still wet, wipe lightly with a clean, lintless cloth. This will leave paint in the pores of the wood. Wait at least a day, then apply a coat of satin-finish varnish. Wait a couple of days this time, then sand very lightly if there are any surface irregularities. Put on a second coat of the satin-finish varnish. After it has thoroughly hardened, sand lightly again if it is not as smooth as you want it to be. A few days later, apply a coat of wax and follow the directions on the container on whether and how long it should be rubbed. faster with a blow torch than a paint remover? A. — Yes, but it's a lot more dangerous. In fact, it's against the law in some communities. A safer tool IB an electric paint softener. Power sanders sometimes work satisfactorily. No matter how you get the paint off, it's a rough job. Are you sure that taking off the old paint is necessary? Sometimes scraping off loose and peeling paint, plus some sanding and steel wooHng, will be sufficient to permit a new coat of paint to adhere. Also, no matter how you take off the old paint, the new paint will not last its normal lifetime if moisture is attacking it from the u derside.
