(!•*•) ADVAMCI THUMOAY, MATIf, 1W* t Who Steals By Abigail Van Buran (Copyright 1966 by Chicago Tribune • N. Y, Mows Synd., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: My daughter goes to school with a girl who goes around telling all the boys if they want anything (material) she can get it for them. She brags that she has $3,000 worth of clothes, jewelry and things she has shop-lifted from stores. She is a pretty girl and comes from a very nice family. Her parents can buy her anything she wants. She is a junior in high school, Abby. Should I tell her mother? I'm afraid she might hurt her parents, or herself if this continues. No name, please. WINSLOW, MAINE DEAR WINSLOW: Tht child could bo tick. Of courso you should toll nor methtr. If it woro YOUR daughter, wouldn't you appreciate tho information? ' I ; i( •..{ ;.'.•' . DEAR ABBY: When Gus came home from a convention trip, I thought he acted kind of funny., It was two weeks before 1 found out why. It seems a bunch of the guys went out one night and got tattooed. Well, Gus had a pair of red lips tattooed on his seat. (He said he asked for a rose, but the artist gave him the lips.) Gus says he is sorry, and he wears a large band-aid over it so it won't make me mad every time I see it. Is there any way to get that tattoo off his behind? BtJS'S WIFE. DEAR WIFE: Yos. Gus can have "a dermatologist (skin specialist) inject a milky-colored liquid into the design to "erase" the tattoo. Out has probably been needled enough already, but suggest it anyway. DEAR ABBY: My husband seems to thing I'm a magician. He wants this house spic and span, but if I'm dead tired at night he tells me not to work so hard. He's a great one for inviting crowds of people home for drinks and supper, but when the grocery and liquor bills come he says I am trying to send him to the poorhouse. He nagged me for years to become "active" in community projects, but if he calls the house and I'm not home he raises the roof. If we've had a late evening he tells me not to get up early, but he growls like a bear if he has to make his own breakfast. How can I tell him in plain language that I am no magician? NO MAGICIAN. The o/rf C/ufe... and the new! DEAR NO: He knows it. him disappear a long time ago. • If you were, you'd have made DEAR ABBY: Please tell that young lady whose baby was a few days overdue with her husband gone nine months and three days 'that she need not be concerned. The courts of most of our states, and most countries of the world recognize the legal gestation period as 11 months for huniaris; It is a medical fact that a child can be' carried that long. My sister-in-law carried a baby a full 10*4 months, and she had been married five years at the time. MRS. O. G.S., GULFPORT, MISS. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Lot Angeles, Cal., 90069.

USE ADVANCE WANT ADS The second major remodeling • project at the Algona Country Club in six years was completed recently, making the local clubhouse one of the finest in the state of Iowa. Above right is a picture of the club last summer. The picture at left is of the original clubhouse, which was constructed in 1922 and which burned to the ground Aug. 31, 1947. Pro Jack Canning, 35, lost his life in the early morning fire. The Algona Country Club is now in its 47th year here. It was organized In 1919, shortly after World War 1 and few, if any, of the original stockholders are still members. The club operated without a clubhouse for three .years and then in 1922, it was decided to build:a clubhouse,-the one pictured at left. There was a great ueal ot disagreement among the members as to where the build- .ng should be located. A NUMBER of members wanted the building in its present location while a considerable body preferred a site near the present No, 6 green. Long, heated arguments took place and there was even a report of near fisticuffs over the decision. It was finally decided the present location was preferred by the majority and in April, 1922, a contract was let to H. R. Cowan (father of Harold Cowan) for $9,855 for the construction of the stucco clubhouse. Counting plumbing and heating facilities, the entire cost of the build ing was about $13,000 and it was one of the finest in Iowa. The original golf course was layed out by a well-known professional at the time, Willie Dunn. The clubhouse was designed largely by H. M. "Slim" Smith, presently Kossuth County Engineer. At that time there were about 200 members. • The above picture is believed to have been taken around 1930 and shows the front of the building, facing southwest. There was a circular drive around the entire structure and tennis courts were located south of the club. As was mentioned before, this clubhouse burned to the ground in 1947 and after operating in the old Officer's Quarters of the Prisoner-of-War camp near the airport for a year and in a small hut known as "Vigar's Villa" (it was managed for the summer months by the late Bill Vigars), a new Quonset-type clubhouse was built in 1948 at a cost of $45,000. ' No major changes were made in this structure until 1960, when members raised $55,000 for long-needed improvements. An $18,000 swimming'pool and patio was added in front of the :lub, new ladies and men's lob-" ker roams were built/ -I two screened-in porches were added and new dining room and kitchen facilities were, constructed. Course improvements were al so undertaken at this time, in eluding the leveling of the No. 4 hole and re-location of No. 9 green, which was formerly located where the present pool is now. A great deal of earth-moving was required since the present locker rooms, screened porch and downstairs lounge were in the basement and underground ?t the time. LAST FALL, a second remodeling project was undertaken, at a cost of about $20,000. The second story screened porch, seldom used, was converted into a beautiful upstairs lounge. The entire basement of the clubhouse was carpeted with all- weather carpeting. The entry way was carpeted and re-design ed. And finally, the ballroom was painted, new drapes were put in and two restrooms were added upstairs. ' Membership is presently at an all-time high, there are 150 stockholders with a waiting list of a half-dozen and about 60 associate members (non-voting members).
