CoufUr Newt - TumHy, Aprfl II, <HINA A giant no longer ^ slumbering With the largest population in the world, China under communism is certain to ploy an increasingly vital role in world affairs. To understand this role and China's actions we must know something of her history. To help our readeri young and old comprehend this great unknown country, this newspaper proudly presents a dramatic new story-strip series tracing Chinese history through reigns of war lords, emperors', foreign powers and dictators. Watch for "One- Fourth of Mankind/ an illustrated, absorbing and educational review of <000 years of recorded Chinese history* NEW YORK (AP)-Whatever happened lo television? .1 remember when it was the talk of America. Everybody used to come to work hollow- eyed from staying up late the night before watching it. Nobody I know talks much about television anymore. All those over 40 seem to see nothing but old movies on it. As for its annual new programs, they don't appear to have much impact. They flower and fade and blow away like dandelion pods. Industry tublhumpers say that last February television viewing reached an all-time high when 54 million households had their sets tuned in for an average of six hours and 28 minutes a day. Whatever happened to television? Pretty much, I'm afraid, what producer David Selznick told me a dozen years ago would happen to it. "Television is for people who want something for nothing," he said. "It will become a mush factory. Hollywood will use it as a dumping ground for B-graders, and go on to maked finer pictures for the theaters." . One of the things I churlishly hold against television — although it probably is my fault — is that my 12-year-old daughter still remembers by heart more deodorant and beer commercials than Mother Goose rhymes. 'It seems to me I have to dust this set off more often than I used to," my wife said the other day. She does. It has become largely another piece of, dust catching furniture. There isn't a single program that our entire family watches together regularly anymore. As far as I am concerned the only great thing about television is its coverage of football. In that it is matchless. But the rest of the year, from New Year's Day .until September, I don't find much reason for turning it on except to see whether Lawrence Welfc has hired a new bassoon player. It is all too sodden, gummy and tasteless. What happened to television? It went thataway! Astrological * Forecast .* .

On his birthday a few weeks ago we got engaged without inviting his parents to the party. At this point they are so annoyed with me I am beginning to wonder hoto things will work out. We plan to be married this summer. His parents say as long as we got engaged, without them, we can get married without them. What is yoiir honest opinion, Abby? I really don't care very much for them, and know they never liked me. Any suggestions? ENGAGED DEAR ENGAGED; Yes. Don't start down the aisle on Ihe wrong foot. You can't ' undo Ihe past, but you can try for a better relationship with your in-laws in the future. Admit you were unkind and inconsiderate to exclude them from the engagement party, but make them welcome at the wedding. DEAR ABBY: Please say something in your column about the dreadfully poor taste shown by women who earn pin money selling cosmetics or household products to their friends — and only their friends — because they lack the sales ability and ambition to go out and tackle the general public. I'm not referring is women who must support themselves and need loyal friends to help them gel started. 1 mean women who are eager to mate money on the side but don't want to work -too hard for it. How does one keep from being taken in by such people without ending the friendship? SICK OF IT DEAR SICK: She simply says, "No thank you. I am not buying any." And if that ends the friendship, it was obviously not much of a friendship to begin with. CONFIDENTIAL TO "THE HUSBAND OF A JOINER": The woman who feels she must belong (o everything would be much happier if she felt she "belonged" to her husband. Problems?
