Blyflievflfo (Ark.) Courier Ncwi — Saturday, April If, 19W — hf* Thftt ^ootliee -L i Beat mar Mrs. Margaret Rone of Hayti I Economic Opportunity which Is bc:i.ming to prepare for a' covers six Boolheel counties in Federal anti-poverty work, originating a new powerful move to develop new employment op- Lining to prepare very busy year ahead of her, not saying that she hasn't been busy in (he past several months. At the annual convention ot the I portunities in the region and Missouri Federation of Business! having the japability of train& Professional Women's Clubs to be held in Kansas City, Mo., April 22-24, she will be Installed as the new state president to serve until her successor is installed at next year's convention. In Missouri there are 119 B&PW clubs with more than 8,400 members. In the natic-al federation there are 175,000 members, and in addition to the United States there are clubs in 28 other countries. Thus the B&PW movement is more far- flung than we thought until we talked with Mrs. Rone. In performing her duties as state president, Mrs. Rone will do quite a bit of traveling throughout the state visiting clubs, high schools and making other appearances where «he generally will be the principal speaker, and she is quite an accomplished speaker. In this work she has a problem, and that is 1 herwok handled as office manager and secretary at the Southeast Missouri Compress Company in Hayti. She is the type of "Girl Friday" who is hard to find a lubstitute for right off the itreet, you might say. As president-elect, Mrs. Rone was called on to make quite a number of appearances and give talks over the state. During last October alone, she said, "I traveled 5,000 miles on B&PW duties . . and missed only two hours of! a 8 evllle ls work on my regul^ jo')." As president, however, she will ing workers, the art.- has gained some expensive time by choosing to work through the MDDC. Reviving MDDC was suggested by Don Thomason, the former Kennett man who is director of the O.E.O. 11-state regional office in Kansas City, Mo., at a kick-off meeting on this subject also held in Portageville a few weeks ago. The use of MDDC also was suggested by other Bootheel citizens. Some citizens will ask, "if MDDC couldn't be financed in the '50s, how can it be financed now?" Well, in the first place MDDC will have a lot more working for it the way things are going these days what with Federal funds available through anti - poverty and other programs. At the very start Earl Williams, director of the Delta Area six - county office in Portageville, said he was putting in for O.E.O. funds to pay the salary of a co-ordinator for the MDDC program, and the MDDC could use the Delta Area's office as its base of operations until it could establish an office of its own. If you don't think this isn't worth a lot, it must be remembered that the inability to pay the salary of its executive and full time office costs is what broke the back of the agency a number of years ago. The Delta Area's office in Port- new and their have to make more appearances telephone won t be listed m a directory until next year, Mr. Williams is anxious that everyone have it so they can tele- means time off from her position. Mrs. Rone will be given a big fend-off for her year as state president by her own club in Hayti of which she is a charter the various programs along. It is DR 9-3018.

To review, the MDDC was organised and chartered in the '50s to work as a master group for all of the Southeast Missouri cotton - producing counties. Operating from a permanent office at Dexter, It performed some good work for several years, but finally became dormant through the lack of a sound financing program that could be depended on | year after year.

Other high ranking State Department officials to speak at the conference ai . expected to be nuntd within two week*, DEAR ABBY: I am a grandmother who is greatly disturbed about the declining moral standards of our young people. Not only of the uneducated and underprivileged, but the intellectuals and upper class as well. Why don't our young women realize that their most prized possession is their virtue? If I had my way, every girl old enough to go out with a boy would carry in her purse a contract which the boy would have to sign should they find themselves involved to the point where the girl considered surrendering her virtue. The boy would agree to assume full responsibility for children, should there be any, and to marry the girl, should she desire it. Should the boy refuse to sign such a contract, if the girl does not insist on being taken home immediately, she might as well commit suicide on the spot. MRS. D. A. J. DEAR MRS. D. A. J.: In order for • contract to be legal and binding, the signer must be in his right mind at the time he signs it. I doubt i( your plan would work. DEAR ABBY: My best friend's husband died, so I let her and hei three children move in with my husband and me. I treated her like a sister. I even looked after her children while the was out with my husband. (She made me believe it was someone else.) He never took me out much before she came to live with «s, then suddenly he started taking us both nut. Everybody knew what wai going on but me. When I found out it nearly lulled me, Abby. We have been married 16 years and I thought we were happy. We finally had a showdown and she left town. I would never consider divorce, but I can't seem to forget the past. My husband is better to me now than he has ever been. How can I get over this? DEEPLY HURT DEAR HURT: One of the most difficult things we are called upon to do in this life Is to forgive and forget. But with determined effort, it can be done. Try not to dwell on the past. We should all learn the art of forgiving, for who among us does not need to be forgiven? DEAR ABBY: I am 8 new bride with a problem I am unable to solve. Newlyweds have many adjustments to make, and I feel that the more time my husband and I spend together, the sooner we will make the adjustments. Our biggest problem is this: My husband has been asked to play golf again by some of his college friends. I don't especially enjoy being left at home on Saturday afternoons, Sundays, and holidays. Especially without a car. When I complain it always ends up in an argument, so I decided to solve the problem by taking up golf, too. I play a fairly decent game, but somehow I get the Idea that he would rather play with his men friends. Am I wrong to object? At 22, I am ...

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You are feeling dynamic and can get a good start at achieving personal aims. Gad about socially and tell others what your ambitions are. Recreations can be the key that opens the right door to opportunity for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Exercise the better part of your nature at this time and start reaping some of the benefits you desire. Evening is best time to make an impression in a social way. Cultivate those in right circles. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Consult with good pals just how to make your most cherished dreams come true. Be more friendly with persons who are blunt and speak straight from - the shoulder. They will lead you properly. Milk toast society is nothing but a bore. PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) You can achieve more if you resolve now to live scrupulously according to the Golden Rule. Cultivate those persons who have learned this lesson. Listen to elders who have had a great deal of experience. IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY...he, or she, will be one of those fascinating persons who is a born linquist and mil love to study into philosophies and religions quite different to those into which you were born.

They thought they would find health of body and peace of mind away from the human herd. But it hasn't worked out that way. Show me a suburbanite and I'll show you an ambulant neurosis, a man overwhelmed by an environment beyond his ability to cope with. Let us consider Ronald Halfacre, a typical suburbanite. He is a horizontal yo-yo who rides a train five mornings a week to his job in the city, and rides home five evenings a week to a mortgage-covered cottage in the suburbs that looks like it had been cut out of cardboard by a child with a rusty pair of scissors. * * * Ronald is 35 and looks 50. His thinning hair is whitening fast, his eyes are feverish, his face twitches, and he smokes four packs of cigarettes a day. What has made Ronald old before his time are those long weekends in the suburbs. They are simply more than human flesh can bear. A suburban weekend Is an adventure in frenzy, a mixture between a Roman orgy and a basic training course with the U.S. Marines.

Ronald never stops going from the time he steps off his train Friday night until his weary wife shovels his limp frame aboard the 8:12 express Monday morning. What does he do? Ronald par. ties until nearly dawn, then gets! up and paints and scrapes walls and plants beans and fights crab grass and asphyxiates himself burning hot dogs in a backyard pit and parties some more and stays up until dawn again and drives the kids to the beach and parties at the Country Club and parties at the neighbors; paints the crab grass and fights the walls, and parties some more, and yackety- rackety-yaks, and before he knows it, Monday dawn is shining and he is lying there in bed sweating and silently screaming. Multiply his problem 30 million times and you can see why this is a problem that requires government action. Only the government is big enough to deal with it. But unless it does something, American suburbanites probably will go the way of the dodo and the dinosaur. Ronald's worst fear is that his office may go on a four-day work week. That means he'd have to face a three-day week-j end in the suburbs, and he knows that would be the death of him. Choose CREAM, ' ROLL-ON OR STICK 1. each Reg. $1.00 And forth* first time...

PLAZA DRUGS PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER A THOUGHT TO REMEMBER By Mrs. Buddy Howard The late John Wannamaker once said, "Half the money I c pend in advertising is wasted. But I have never been able to figure out just which half." Maybe he was jesting. Maybe not. I don't know. But I do know there are problems in even attempting to do Funeral Home advertising. Almost all Funeral Homes can and do say the same things. The ads usually stress quiet, dignified service; reverent care; sympathetic understanding; reputation for attention to detail— and so on. Actually however, when Funeral Home services are needed, the selection is nearly always made for, reasons of reputation. Through the years, our firm has earned a deservingly good reputation. Many families already know this. Even so, to belter int everyone with who we are, what we stand for, how and what we think,— this new column will appear every week in this paper. Watch for it. Read it. You will find it interesting. Howard Funeral Service
