My problem is money and you can't help me unless you get big-hearted and send me a check for $50,000. I own my own business and make good money, but my wife spends it faster than I can make it. To make matters worse, I have four daughters who are exactly like their mother. I am going under every month in bills, and there doesn't seem to be any end to it. Will you please tell my wife and daughters to quit being extravagant? OWES PLENTY DEAR OWES: I will not! That's YOUR job. It's sad enough to have spoiled your wife, but yoa are guilty of perpetuating the crime by raising four more females in her image. Turn oli those charge accounts and put your better half on an allowance. sented the honoree the large assortment of gifts, many in her chosen patterns of china and crystal The hostesses' gift was a lamp.

ANCIENT HIPPO ATHENS (AP) -The lower jaw, teeth and part of the bones of a fossilized hippopotamus have been found in a lignite mine at Kymi on the island of Euboea. Prof. J. Melendis, archaeology lecturer at Athens University, said the hippopotamus belonged to a species which existed in Europe 25 million years ago. Gold has not been used in United States coins since 1934. DEAR ABBY: I have been going to a certain hairdresser for a long time because his shop is clean and he is very good on hair color. But his cuts and styling need updating. He never takes a refresher course. He insists on setting my hair to suit his taste, not mine. And if I start to make a suggestion, he flies into a rage. Lately I have been leaving his shop all upset, and the rest of my day is spoiled. Don't you think a patron deserves some consideration? Please print this. Maybe my hairdresser will read it and change his tune. FROM HOUSTON DEAR FROM: Why should your hairdresser change his tune when you keep coming back to dance to his music? Aw, c'mon, madame, there surely must be another beauty sho pin H o n s t o n that's clean and has operators who are good on b a i r color. DEAR ABBY: This is for ALBANY MOTHER who hates tight pants, so she buys her son's slacks at the Salvation Army store because that's the only place she can find pants with pleats in front. She was also very proud of her son because he wore his hair cut short and was an honor student. My son's hair hangs in delicate curls around his shirt collar, and his pants couldn't be much tighter. It would make such a good story to say he's a delinquent and a high school dropout, but he's not. He is a top student at a fine university. All the adults who know him say he is one of the most conscientious, dependable young men they've ever met. His explanation: "People who know me, know me. And those who don't, have no right to judge me by how long I wear my hair and how tight my pants are." ANOTHER MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: If your conscientious, dependable son is misjudged because of the length of his hair and the tightness of his pants, he i sdoing himself a disservice. There are more beatniks with long hair and tight pants than honor students. DEAR ABBY: How does a girl tell the difference between just a friendly kiss, and one that could lead to trouble? CANDY DEAR CANDY: If you don't know the difference, you shouldn't be out after dark without yonr mother. Troubled? Write to Abfay, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal.

Courier News - Tuesday, April 19,19M - Pige Five Somerset Maugham: •••'-•--•*,. 'No Matter What its Miseries i '•••••*? i »l£i Life Should Be Grasped' i 14.2 cu. ft. NO-FROST refrigerator-freezer APPLIANCE DEPT. By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (P) — Four old friends of W. Somerset Maugham were taking a fond look at the life and times of the famed English author. The conversation took place at the University of Southern California, and listeners included a curious mixture of academic and show business types. One of the speakers, George Cukor, arrived with a dazzling trio: Lillian Gish, Shirley Mac- Lame and Mia Farrow. Reading from his soon-to-be- published book, "Remembering Mr. Maugham," Garson Kanin recalled asking the once-wed Maugham if he had ever proposed marriage more than once. No, replied the author, but he assuaged Kanin's disappointment by adding that the single proposal was not to his wife. He told of an eight-year affair with a,woman named Nan. She disappeared after a fight, and he traced her to Chicago, where he proposed marriage. Although professing her love, she refused. Later he discovered she had been pregnant by another man. Said Maugham with unaccustomed tears: "I have often wondered wtyjt course my life would have taken except for that freakish happenstance." Clare Booth Luce observed that the picture of Maugham as cold and detached was a false one, "I think it was because of the eyes." she said. "They were like desert stones, dark and.glit- tering and unpleasant to look at." Maugham's essential loneliness was stressed by George Cukor, who recalled him saying, ; 'It's a lonely life, writing. When you are writing a book, you are entirely preoccupied with your characters. When you cut them out of your life, it can be very lonely." "Maugham believed the beginning and the end was writing," said Mrs. Luce. "I remember visiting his place on the Riviera and seeing the studio where he worked. His chair faced away from the Mediterranean; he didn't want to be distracted by the view. "He worked every morning for three or four hours. Then he stopped for lunch; he liked gimlets and stingers as well as martinis. After a nap. he went over what he had written. He once told me that he corrected his sentences more than any modern writer except Proust." Kanin told of asking Maugham in his last years whether , , » age brought fewer friends, ajij£| more enemies. "Yes," the aSC Ihor replied grimly, "as sad anil' ; unfortunate as that is, it .is' true." ;',"',",.' But then he added as deathapproached: "No matter wKa't'.l its miseries, life should ;be; grasped." ; . •. : The program ended as it had, begun, with Maugham's clipped'' voice reading the sentences' over which he had labored 59' lovingly.
