Fourteen -MyfttHC* '(Art,)' Cborttr ITew* -• jMtenftiy, iiiiniiiimiimniiiiiiiiimiiiniinii JoL Pop Sets Bad Example V (McNauiht Sjndlcatt Inc.) DEAR ABBY: My husband and 1 own a boat. \Ve both love fishing and sometimes we stay on the river all night. Here's the problem: My husband can't swim a stroke and he refuses to wear a life preserver. He says he has to die sometime and he doesn't care how he goes. We have five children, AD- by. They range from 13 years old down to three. I gel frightened half to death when we are in the boat with him and the waters get rough or a storm comes up. I am becoming a nervous wreck over this. CAN YOU SUGGEST SOMETHING? HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Tell your "hero" that even if HE doesn't care how he goes, YOU do. And you also care WHEN! Remind him that you didn't have those five children without his help, and you don't intend to raise them alone either. That ought to buoy the old boy up. DEAR ABBYi About three weeks ago all of our relatives and several of our friends received wedding invitations to a mutual relative's wedding. We received no invitation and , felt put out, but said nothing. You don't just call up peo- ; pie and ask them how come you weren't invited, do you Three days before the wee ding, I got this tearful phon< call from the bride herself apologizing all over the plae because she's heard we didn" get an invitation. She said we were on her guest list and the invitation must have gotten "lost" in the mail. She begged us to come, but I hadn't shopped for a gift, and I had nothing to wear, so I declined. Many of our relatives said they thought we should have gone I would like your opinion. OVERLOOKED DEAR OVERLOOKED: I think you should have attended. If yon had not been wanted the bride would not have telephoned you person' ally. Your gift could have come later, and your attire would have been of little importance. DEAR ABBY: What do you think about a high school that makes rules about how short a girl can wear her skirt? Also they have rules about how the boys can wear their hair and they won't let him raise a beard or mustache. Isn' that denying a person his individual freedom? Don't you think if the kids' parents don't care, the teachers and principal should stay out of it? Please don't duck this question, Abby, We kids at Lincoln High want to know Where you stand. THE KIDS AT LING DEAR KIDS: I think it should be up to the parents, not the school, to deter- an iiiinuiiuiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiNiniiiiiiiiiiiii mine how students should dress and wear their hair. But more important than fashions and hair styles is RESPECT FOR THE RULES. If those who think the rules are unfair would invest as much time and energy in attempting to change them, as they do in defying them, the rules COULD be changed. And that, in my opinion, is the best way to strike a blow for individual freedom.

If a very good friend of yours had had money taken from her purse while a guest in your home, wouldn't you want to be told about it? Read Courier News Classifieds LONDON (AP) - Jack Me Cann sits down just about every day and writes to Queen Elizabeth II. The assignment makes him the most unusual political correspondent in the world. Few writers have a smaller readership. None reaches a more distin guished audience. "Mr. McCann with his humble duty" he begins. Then he sets forth an account of what has happened that day in the mother of parliaments. "I try to capture the spirit of !he proceedings in the chamber," McCann says. "If the House erupts in anger _ tell the queen why. If mem- iers double up with laughter I describe what started it all. And my aim throughout is to stay objective." , * * * McCann is Laborite member of Parliament for the Lancashire seat of Rochdale. He was appointed in April by Prime Minister Harold Wilson as vice chamberlain of the royal household. The post carries with it a traditional duty started in 1783 by King George III. The report is supposed to describe incidents and atmosphere in the House "during the early part of the day." Monarchs of the kingdom have been barred from entering the Commons in session ever since King Charles in the 17th century marched in and tried to arrest several members. 'It's left entirely to my own discretion as to what I present to the queen to read," McCann said. "Naturally I tried to make it chatty and readable and not merely a straight account of the proceedings." McCann's reports average about 700 words but on dull days Ihey are considerably less. He completes his dispatch :hree or four hours after the Souse meets. Then he hands it in at the Commons post office. It is delivered as a telegram ;o Buckingham Palace by a messenger, she's out of the country the re- dinner when she h hi London. Tf sh's out of the country the reports are turned into a weekly account and then radioed or delivered to her by courier. * * * As vice chamberlain and leg- islatore McCann, 55, a former engineers, is paid $11,900 year.
