Camil Rnd Family Living The Run Fesl is believed to be the first women's run offered in Galveston County and women from throughout the area are welcome to enter.

DEAR ABBY: I have just lost 20 pounds, which is something I've been trying to do for years. However, a problem has developed. When I'm a dinner guest at someone's home and a gooey dessert is offered and I turn it down, the hostess will loudly announce, "Oh, you and your diet! You're so skinny, it wouldn't hurt you to put on a few pounds!" Of course, all eyes are on me and I never know what to do or say. I don't like to make a big deal out of explaining that I really don't want it (nobody would believe me anyway), so I take it and eat it, and afterwards I could kick myself. Is there a better way to handle this situation? 1 hate scenes. EMBARRASSED DEAR EMBARRASSED: Initetd ol being embarruted, be proud! Simply uy, "I'm watching my e«Jort«i," And il you get any feedback about how akin ay you are, let it b« known that you worked hard to get that way and want to itay that way. But if you lack the courage to itand your ground in a public confrontation, quietly accept the dewert, puih it anud •• your plate, ud leave it. DEAR ABBY: My son (a sophomore in high school) is getting to be a very clever thief. We give him a generous allowance and if he asked for anything extra, we would be glad to give it to him, but he doesn't ask, he just helps himself. He doesn't need anything. He just steals for the thrill of stealing. I know he has been in my purse and stolen money. And I have seen him take money from his father's wallet. He has stolen little things from his friends, and now I find that he's taken things from the grocery store, drugstore and other places of business. I keep finding things in his room that 1 know he didn't buy. I have even threatened to lake him to the police to frighten him, but nothing helps. Am 1 raising a criminal? Please help me. ILLINOIS MOM DEAR MOM: A child who iteali for the thrill of tteaiing needs professional help. He can be straightened out U he'* taken in hand early. Threatening him with the police it unwise. A policeman ibould be identified as a friend who protects us and our property, not an enemy who would take pleasure in punishing our wrongdoing. Ask your family doctor whom to see about this boy. DEAR ABBY: I have a friend whose company I enjoy immensely and we see each other at least once a week —but it is always at MY house. She has a lovely home and a housekeeper, so there is no reason in the world why she can't invite me to her house once in a while. When I see her or talk to her on the phone, she always says, "Do come over to see me sometime." I don't consider this a proper invitation. When I invite her to my home, 1 telephone and ask her to come on a specific afternoon. I don't want to offend her, but I would like her to know that her "come over sometime" invitation doesn't sound very sincere to me. How should this be handled? Or am I too touchy? MRS. ANONYMOUS DEAR MRS. ANONYMOUS: Are you too touchy? No. And now should it be handled? The next time your vague friend asks you to come over "sometime" - ask, "When?" Fashion Tips Of Boas, Stick Gloss MR. AND MRS. NATHAN Bell of La Marque are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary today. The couple was married Sept. 22, 1953, in Reno, Nev. They are former longtime residents of Dickinson.

Everybody who finishes will be considered a winner of sorts, and will receive her Run Fest tee shirt to prove it. Beverly Benson, Fun Fest director, says the major purpose is to help women better understand and actually "see" the benefits one can gain through running, jogging or walking on a regular basis. Among these she includes weight control or loss, release of tension, revival of energy, and improvement of self-image and overall health. Runners, joggers and walkers will all be welcome, she stresses. The Run Fest is the brain child of Benson and several other running enthusiast whom she met along her running course or in the community health education offerings at College of the Mainland. Spearheading the effort, along with Benson, are Manuel Perez and Mary Ann Urich of the COM staff and Jeanne Baker, a former physical education instructor at La Marque High School and now a Dickinson housewife. The College of the Mainland has agreed to sponsor the race as one of its continuing education and community service projects. COM has sponsored other runs for both men and women, notably the Run for Fun and the Turkey Trot-Off. "There just haven't been any runs exclusively for women," Benson says, citing the Bonnie Belle run in Houston as the nearest she has heard about. Benson stresses that the emphasis at the Run Fest will be on the amateur, every day runner or jogger. Herself a medical secretary, Benson says she and her husband, Clark, took up running as a sport and exercise about two years ago. They had read about the benefits of the regular workouts found by researchers in the aerobic exercise series. She had run a little in the COM physical education classes and Clark had run track in school. "We just decided it was a good thing for us to do," she says. Now Benson runs about two and a half miles at least four days a week. She is able to maintain a jogging speed with "just a few walks along the way if I'm really worn out." Individual women and women's groups are invited to enter the Run Fest. There is a $3 entry fee which includes the cost of the tee shirt. The entry deadline is Oct. 1. For entry forms or more information one may contact the physical education department of College of the Mainland, 8001 Palmer Highway, Texas City, Texas 77590, or telephone 938-1211 ext. 422. The only equipment needs for the Run Fest are good running shoes. "Good shoes and a willing heart," Benson says. French Class Offered Registration is continuing for "Cooking Encounter of the French Kind," a class in French cooking being offered Oct. 4 by the Galveston County Medical Society Auxiliary. The class will be held in Moody Memorial First United Methodist Church in Galveston with sessions from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. and a salad luncheon at noon. The instructor will be Jeanne Sanders of Houston's Batterie de Cuistns. She is a graduate of the Cordon Bleu and La Varenne in Paris. The charge for the class and luncheon is $7.50 and the public is welcome. For reservations one may call Michelle Zaunbrecher at 765-5080.
