DEAR ABBY: You were very charitable to say that not all PTA's were like the one in Leavenworth, but I have found those that I attended to be exactly like "Had I r described. Unfriendly, clickish, and cool to newcomers. 1 liave had experiences with three different PTA's so I am not jumping to a conclusion. If you don't have money or social standing, you haven't a chance. I think PTA has become » farce. When my parents were in PTA not too many years ago, they met in the evenings so fathers and working mothers could attend. Today 'uren they meet at 1 P.M. and the business is over by 1:30, after which they sit around drinking coffee, nibbling goodies, and gossiping. Someone had a wonderful idea in getting parents and teachers together, but it fell apart. ALSO HAD IT IN GLENDALE DEAR ABBY: Hooray for "HAD IT" from Leavenworth!

DEAR ABBY: I fully agree with "HAD IT." I never go o PTA meetings any more or the same reason, altho I lave been a paying member- or 10 years. They rnist be r ery poorly organized because allho I have not attended a meeting in years, I received a letter a short while ago ask- ng me if I wanted to be an officer. "HAD IT" FROM ST.

MONEY BALANCE PICTURE >f BIUIONS OF DOOMS 1..17I SURPLUS i 3.6 Zl DEFICIT '1.7 2.7 2.1 MS •« '47 '« '« '50 'SI '« 'M 'J4 'K '36 '57 '« '5» '60 '61 '62 '6J '64 '61 The United State* cloud its international payments books for 1965 in tht tat shapt in tight years. Tht chronic deficit in the balance of payments was still there—$1.3 billion—but it was tht lowest since 1957, the'last surplus year. Newschart shows the ups and downs in the balance during the postwar period. Tht balance measurts money flowing out.of tho country—from government spending, business purchaie of foreign goods and tourists—against funds coming in from foreign sourcts. DEAR ABBY: Please tell "HAD IT" (hat things are Hie same way here in California. At least that's the situation in Encino. I have attended three PTA meetings, and have yet to be spoken to. I even went early, hoping someone would make me feel welcome, but I was ignored. So now I ignore their requests for old clothes, magazines, bakery goods, and volunteers to serve on different committees. As far as I'm concerned, this state Is for th« birds, and it's people liW those In PTA that make it so. This is a small elementary school and no more than 35 people were present at the meetings, so you would think someone would know I was new. Sign me— HAD IT FROM ENCINO DEAR ABBY: I have also had it. but not with the PTA. I have had it with women like "HAD IT," who come to a meeting, fold their arms and wait for someone to com* up to them and say, "Won't you please be one of us, we were just waiting for you?" Why doesn't Mrs. Newcomer introduce herself with, "t am new here. What can I do to help?" Smelling salts would be in order for the handful of "doers" in the organization. And I assure you, Mrs. Newcomer would be more than welcome. At least, that's the Way it is in Seattle. HAD IT WITH "HAD ITS" DEAR ABBY: That letter about the woman who was ignored by the PTA,reminded me of something my mother told me years ago. She said, "If people don't notice you, or extend i friendly hind, look to yourself for the reason. Do you meet them hai: way? Ii your manner pleasant and in- vlflng? Sometimes the others are even more timid than you, and It is up to you to take the Initiative. Too often when we are loft out we say, 'It must be my face, or my race,' when It is really our fault."
