MISS PEACH POOR KIP/ HE CAN'T TELL ONE COLOR TO WORK/ A3CUT, LESTER* , Um , Tuw, »·*. II, INDEPENDENT--P«gt What Made Uncoln a Great American? By ANGELO PATBI '" What makes a man great? What, is -it within a man.-that makes "his name a symbol for all that is'fine, in mankind? What immortal spirit is-in a man to cause a nation, to look up to him as we Americans do o Lincoln? There is a quality of. elemental nature in great men, a Do'lt-Yourself Dentist? By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR A B B Y : I am wondering if you w o u l d know where I could buy one 'of thoseiDO-IT-YOUR- SELF Dental Kits. . I have a big family and I don't make much money. The dentist wants $200 to give me an upper and lower set of teeth and I can't stand; that kind of pressure. If you could tell me where to find one of those DO-IT-YOURSELF Dental Kits, I am sure I could do it myself as^ am very handy with my hands.--ANDY. DEAR ANDY: You might be handy, Andy, but it takes an expert with much skill and training to make a satisfactory set of dentures. I've never heard of DO-IT- YOURSELF Dental Kits, and doubt if there Is anything like this on the market. DEAR ABBY: I traded a neighbor my husband's old tuxedo for what was supposed to DBX bo a thorough bred Siamese cat. This cat is so d u m b that she doesn't even know her name. her. and ^she is t h r e e C e e t a w a y from me and and she doesn't even look up. own call naturally dumb and I should not expect too much from this cat because, after all, it is not a dog--it is only a cat. Is he right or can you train cats-to come when you call them and so forth?--CAT OWNER DEAR OWTEK: Cats can be trained. If your cat doesn't even look up when you call ..her, maybe she .Is deaf. Take her to a .vet. Some .cats are smarter than dogs.- " * m * t DEAR ABBY: I am always so- embarrassed whenever I get a gift of cash. In the' first place I. think it shows' bad ;aste'for a person to give someone money because it shows that they don't want to take the time or give a little thought io selecting a present. Writing "thank you" notes for a money gift jay, money" ?--NOT' PLEASED DEAR Js wrong Hov/ Columnist Launched Famous Compliment Club By DK. GEORGE W. CRANE Case X-325: Doris D., aged And by the end of that very IS, is a college .coed. "Dr. Crane," she began, "how did you happen to- start your 'Compliment Club'? . "My father is a B a p t i s t clergyman and he has used your 'Compliment Club' as a regular Christian project for Sunday School classes. 'You may not remember me. J.VU int*J *«»*» but I qualified for membership and have one of your personally signed diplomas, too." Well, a number of years ago one of my psychology students at Northwestern U n i v e r s i t y asked for a personal interview after class. During our discussion, she b r o k e into t e a r s as she informed me she was so terribly lonely and friendless. "Although I'm surrounded by millions of people here in Chicago," she said, "I feel almost as isolated as if I were Robinson Crusoe. "For nobody speaks to me 'or smiles and shows the slightest interest in whether I live or die. "Dr. Crane, I can't stand i' much longer. 1,3'ust live for the letters from my parents in Wisconsin." '··-· * * · * THIS GIKL was quite shy We'd call her an introvert. She had an office job by day and was taking one of my classe: at night chiefly in the hope o ' winning friends. So I assured her that.I'd con coct a psychological experimen that would make her popula: and help her win plenty o friends. At the next meeting of he class I announced the "Compli ment Club" as a c l a s s r o o m project. "You are to pay an hones bit of praise to each of thre people, every day," I began "And you should keep it u without a break for 30 consecu - tive days. \ "Then w r i t e a 500-wor theme on the changes you hav noticed in yourself as well, a in your companions and co workers. "This will be a homework as-' signment and carry c o l l e g e credit." House-to-house sales work is one of the m o s t extrovertive tasks you ever can attempt, but most of my evening students in this psychology class already were employed at good jobs. So I launched the "Compliment Club" as the' next best method for turning their attention OFF themselves and UPON their social surroundings. ·» « · * IT REALLY is just the Golden Rule applied to social contacts. It puts the stress on POSITIVE thinking, too, for you must look for good traits in your companions as the first step in p a y i n g them sincere praise. Wei!, before the month was o v e r , the e n t i r e class had ' changed into a friendly, happy lot. The students now would greet each other cordially as they assembled for class, and report their most interesting c a s e s during the week. In fact, I devoted 15 minutes each week for a testimonial mtetlng. d'u r 1 n E which the^j . gave lome of the more dra- ' 'matio. examples of good will which the p a y i n g of compliment* had produced. emester, this Wisconsin girl too was weeping- from loneli- ess, grew so popular she ac- ually became engaged to .a Chicago schoolteacher who sat n the back of the room.' So send for the "Complimen Club" booklet, e n c l o s i n g s tamped return envelope, plu 20 cents. Use it-to spread more u n s h i n e as you journe hrough life. It also is an ideal project for hurches and schools.- Fami ies likewise profit by it, for many wives and children are aken for granted by the head f the. household. Compliments are simply verb al bouquets offered BEFORE Jie funeral.

Your attitude Many people give a gift of cash because they are not sure of the size or your preference of color--or simply because, they want you to have exactly what you want. A gift ol cash is far b e t t o r than receiving: a "white elephant" or something that has to be exchanged. * * * * / DEAR ABBY.: You are always telling,-*- "ieone who is in love with someone besides their own spouse to fill up the holes in their heads.
