SATURDAY, F E B R U A R Y 28, 1970 ANDERSON DAILY BULLETIN PAG! 5 . By A B I G A I L VAN BUHEN DEAR ABBY: Many times you express great wisdom and great compassion in your answers, bill at limes, I feel tliat you arc still hung up on some cruel traditions of our culture which are hypocritical and sick. In tin's instance, 1 am referring to the example of the young girl who wished to have a complete wedding in spite of the fact that she became a mother at 16 and is raising her own 5-year-old daughter. I think you were wise to suggest that she not use the daughter in the wedding, but why in the mercy of God, would you suggest this girl brand herself on her wedding day with an off-colored white or pastel wedding gown for a mistake she made five years ago? If you recommended that we single out the past virtues or mistakes of the bride, . then why not also recommend that the groom should wear a while suit if he is pure and a black suit it he is not pure? In all fairness, we should invite the entire congregation, including the minister, to wear proper attire whether or not they were virgins when they were married. Then, we would nol heap all the humiliation upon the bride on the most important day of her life as she is forced lo march down the aisle displaying her "colors." Isn't il about time thai we slop making young brides wear "the scarlet letter" on their wedding day? After all, how many of those innocent looking brides wearing pure white gowns actually have the right to wear such signs of purity? Fiendishly, we like to brand the ones who got caught, who in most cases, have already · suffered enough. When will we ever learn? Sincerely, .

Thank you for your fine, illuminating letter. ft- ·.'; - i: it DEAR ABBY: You had a letter in your column signed "NAIVE IN NEBRASKA." She said that after her elderly mother's death she went to visit a woman who her mother had described as a "frequent visitor" who had been kind to her during her illness. (She'd come every Sunday, with a piece of cake, and read the Bible to her.) In this woman's home she saw some of her mother's precious "antiques." She was astonished, and wanted to warn others that there were women who made it their business lo routinely visit the sick and elderly and "admire" some of their bric-a-brac just enough lo gel the ailing person lo make them a "Gift" of a few pieces before dying. I would like to quote something from our church bulletin for NAIVE IN NEBRASKA lo see: "The test of a people is how il behaves toward Ihe old. It is easy lo love children. Kven tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care of the old, the incurable, the helpless arc Ihe true gold mines of a cullure." -- Abraham J. Heschel. Her mother parted gladly with the antique bric-a-brac in "payment" for the companionship (whatever the motives) which she so desperately hungered for. Sad to say, only closest relatives seem expected to render services out of love -- for nothing, but strangers demand a price. Too bad NAIVE IN NEBRASKA didn't know il. 11 may have inclined her to lake belter care of her mother.

David Merrick's much pallycaked new "Child's Play" suspense - hit increases his Bdwy. show's to seven, .and improves his percentage to une-lhird of the major stage productions on The Stem . . . London's Clean Air Act was signed in 1965 and its last "bad smog" was in 'G2, its weather experts claim; plus 50 per cent more Winter sunshine than a decade ago (someone please stagger through our smog to Blighty and see how they managed il).

Chester Morris (who started in films 42 years ago) hadn't made one in IB years -- until Ihe current "Great White Hope" 1 movie. Now that the Soviets have asked for closer lies with Greece, how come Melinda Mer- couri and her husband Jules Dassin haven't publicly deplored THAT Commie plan . . . Several star-gazers predicted Jimmy Ellis (Pisces) would knock the stars out of Joe Frazier (Capricorn) by kayo; the stars can moon over [hat goof. Babson's Point Of View LOWEU PlllCED STOCKS WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass. - While Ihe purchase of lower priced stocks (generally those selling under $20 per share) .is certainly not without risk, these issues can be attractive to aggressive inveslors seeking capital gains. Because of their volatility, such securities offer Ihe opportunity for smart per cenlage gains on a relatively Email increase in price, and in some instances, they may represent possible growth situations. Lower priced stocks also enable small investors to deal in round lots (usually 100 shares), rather than in odd lots. MARKET TIMING 1MPOHTANT Unfortunately, many people use poor market timing in purchasing lower priced issues. The investing public tends to shy away from these stocks after a sharp market decline but becomes overly enthusiastic nbout the same stocks once the market has enjoyed a substantial rise. Too often, investors are caught np in the speculative nlmospherc which usually marks the lop of a bull market and they begin to purchase lower priced issues. By this lime, mosl such issues have had sharp advance^ in price and are now selling near their highs. Such timing could not be worse! If the market should then decline, these investors invariably become "locked into" secondary slocks for a long period of time, even though Ihe intention was to buy for a short-term profit. LONG-TERM POSSIBILITIES In the past, boar markets have presented ·ppoi'tumlies for inveslors lo get into good frowth lifuations at ground-floor levels. Such opportunities arise because bear markets usually bring the good stocks down with the bad before they have finally run their course. While such opportunities are glaringly obvious in retrospect, they require a great degree of selectivity when looking ahead. In this respect, probably the most common mistake is for investors to purchase a stock solely because it has suffered a sharp decline and is in the lower price bracket. Correctly, investors should look for a favorable basic picture and above- average growth possibilities when trying to pick lower priced stocks for possible long-term growth. DETERMINE OBJECTIVES . It is important that investors determine the purpose for which (hey are selecting lower priced issues before they make Iheir commitment. If the slock has been purchased for short-term capital gains, then (he investor is justified in taking profits once the 'issue has made a worthwhile percentage rise. However, if the slock has been purchased for possible long-term growth, the investor should nol be lured into profit- taking once (he stock moves up a few points. Oftentimes, a lower priced issue will be purchased for shorter term profits and held too long. Consequently, the investor will ride the slock up for a healthy percentage gain -- on paper -- only to ride it all the way back down and see the gain wiped out. conversely, a stock purchased for longer- term growth is often sold at the first sight of profit. Thus, the investor loses oul on the biggcsl gains.
