Think out how you can really DEAR ABBY: No offense to you, personally, but you're nuts! I agree with that girl who signed herself, "TOO NICE." She's right. U a girl Is too nice she sits home. It's the fast girls who are popular. 1 am only 16 and I know from experience that the only reason a boy asks you out is for one thing, and if he doesn't get it, you don't see him again That's no lie, either. When you said, "if a girl has to fight with a boy to keep his hands off her, she must have led him on," you were wrong. She can be sitting next to him, doing nothing, and he will almost attack her. Since January I have had to break up with three boys because they all tried to go too far. But I'll stay nice because I have my self respect. But so far It hasn't got me anywhere. "TOO NICE," TOO DEAR TOO NICE: Another "nice" girl had this to say on the subject: Dear Abby, I am 18 and have just completed m y freshman year at college. I want to tell all those girls who wonder If boys really like a sweet, old - fashioned girl what I learned from experience: Don't be shocked if even the best boys try. After I painstakingly explained my views on the matters of morals, many more dates and fine friendships results. Some jokingly called me prudish and mid - Victorian, but I was elected to a position of high honor by the student body. There were times when I actually pitied the girls who allowed boys liberties, thinking it would increase their popularity. (1 have a brother, and boys please and delight him, or her. PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Sitting down with partners and talking over certain matters that need clarification on this free day makes all operate more smoothly next week. Don't be contrary with ottiers. This could spoil your finest aims. talk.) The girls who parked with boys on dark roads at night were ignored by the same boys in broad daylight. Keep telling young girls that It pays to be nice, Abby, I am, and I am — NOT SORRY DEAR ABBY: My older sister has developed an allergy to doing dishes. The minute she starts doing the dishes she sneezes. It's not just one sneeze, it's a long string of them. Mama says she can't help it so I have to do the dishes alone. What should I do? I think my sister is just trying to get out of doing the dishes. STUCK WITH DISHES DEAR STUCK: Your sister could be allergic to the soap powder or detergent you use for dish washing. A doctor could determine this. If that's the case, it's time for a change. What a spot for a commercial!) DEAR ABBY: I have a problem. I am a 66-year-old woman who is engaged to a 69- year-old man. He has been a widower for nine years. He has asked me to go with him to visit his family. It would be a 700 - mile trip by automobile. My children feel that it would be "proper" for me to go with him if we flew, but "improper" if we drove. I have known this gentleman since childhood and see nothing "improper" about making the trip with him regardless of how we went. Will you kindly advise me. OLD ENOUGH DEAR OLD ENOUGH: I see nothing "improper" here except possibly that which exists in the minds of your children. Go along with your fiance and have a wonderful time. Problems? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self - ad- j dressed envelope. i BEACH SCENE—Landing craft and Marines awaiting withdrawal after an operation create a momentarily peaceful scene in silhouette on a beach, of war-wracked Viet Nam. Taboo in. Universities? Ban Bible as Literature? By DALE NELSON SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) - A court test is coming up here to determine whether a course on the Bible as literature in a state university violates state constitutional ban against use of public funds for "religious worship, exercise or instruction." On one side are two fundamentalist pastors, the Rev. Thomas W. Miller of Calvary Bible Presbyterian church here and the Rev. Harold Webb Of Tacoma Bible Presbyterian church in nearby Tacoma, who cay it does. On the other are the regents of the University of Washington, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Seattle and Washington - Northern Idaho Councils of Churches. The issue is English 390, the designation of a course the university has offered in some form or other since 1919. Similar courses are offered in many other state universities, including some whose state constitutions have the same language as Washington's con» cerning religious instruction. The Bible Presbyterian Church, which the pastors represent, broke off from the main Presbyterian body in the 1930s. Reference books give its 1965 membership at 11,994 in 95 churches, compared with 3,292,204 in 9,016 churches for the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. Last December, the Rev. Mr. Miller and the Rev. Mr. Webb wrote to Prof. David C. Fowler, who is teaching the course this year. They said they thought it should be stopped. Fowler referred them to the university provost, who referred them to the regents. The regents, on the advice of Atty. "Jen. John J. 0'- Connell's office, replied: "The board considers the course an imporant part of the university's curriculum because desire it an opportunity to study a vially important text of the Western culture in the same manner and with the same approaches as are customary in any class devoted to the study of literary texts." * i * On April 18, the two pastors filed suit in King County Superior Court to restrain the regents from continuing to offer the course. "The manner in which th« authorship and writing of tha Bible is presented," they said, "necessarily implies that many of the books of the Bible were not written by those to whom the Bible, which presentation necessarily affects a destruction of the Bible as an infallible rev- lation from God to man." Textbooks for the course are the revised standard version of the Bible and "outline for the study of the Bible as literature" by Prof. Fowler, in which the author says: "The establishment of a course in the Bible as literature does not necessarily imply that the Bible is assumed to be nothing more than another collection of literary documents. The Bible Is more than just another book." * * • On May 9, Superior Court Judge W. R. Cole denied a request by the plaintiffs to halt the course in midterm, and a motion by the state to dismiss the case. He set trial for June 6. The Civil Liberties Union submitted a brief as a friend of the court, contending that to halt the course would violate Prof. Fowler's academic freedom, which it said is protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Since then, tha Council of Churches groups entered the case in support of tha university. Today In History Today is Friday, May 27, tha 148th day of 1966. There are 218 days left in the year.
