My mother and father are getting a divorce. My mother has a lawyer to fight for her rights, and my daddy has a lawyer to fight for his rights. Why don't us kids have lawyers to fight for our rights? The court says you have to live with your mother or your father. I want to live with both of them, but nobody asks me anything. What can 1 do? RICHARD DEAR RICHARD: Your letter eloquently expresses the Si it. many chlldren when thelr Parents divorce. Your rights," however, do not include forcing your parents to live together whether they like it or not. I don't know what the circumstances are in this case, Richard, but most parents don't like dividing their families any more than it likes to be divided, but they have apparently decided that this decision is the best for all concerned. DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a neighbor who gets up bright and early on Sunday morning to cut his grass with a power lawn mower? I once mentioned [kiddingly] that he snouldn t, 'work" on Sunday. He said it wasn't "work," it was exercise - SLEEP RUINED DEAR RUINED: Tell him [and this time NOT kiddingly] that he is -disturbing the peace." [This grim phrase could throw a scare into him. I P.S. I think anyone who uses a power lawn mower before noon on Sunday should be forced to shave with it. DEARABBY: Is there any way to find eut if a person who was born in another country and claims to be an American citizen REALLY is a citizen? He has lived in this town for about 25 years. I don't want that person to know that I am trying to find out, but I am willing to spend up to $100 for this information S '8 n me . "GOOD REASONS" DEAR "GOOD": Your local bureau of immigration and naturalization can provide you with the information you seek at no cost. But be prepared to divulge the reasons for your inquiry. It is up to the bureau chief to decide whether your "reasons" are "good" enough. ;', / DEAR ABBY. We are a one-car family, so my mother drives my father to a corner about 2 miles from home, and a fellow employe picks him up there and gives him a ride to work. Dad is dropped at that same corner every evening between 4:30 and 5:30 [the time varies], then he calls home for someone to drive out and pick him up. He rings the house, lets th ® P h ? ne r .i«g twice u andtherche hangs up an.d,st,yes,the dime, i It [seems that everyone we ever knew calls our house between 4:30 to 5:30. When mom answers, she can't hang up until she's told the caller all the latest news. My father gets mad because the line is busy, gives up, and walks home. And naturally he's in a bad mood all evening. How can I, a teen-age daughter, keep peace in the family? NO JOKE DEAR NO: Stand phone guard.
