Van & Hiren (McNiatht SynillfMt* »><>•) uillMUIIIIHIN .......... UllinilNIIIII ......... "I .......... llllll»«l!irailllllllllllllHIIIIHII»« DEAR ABBY: We have a •nice home with a lovely guest worn which has a big comfortable double bed. We had • couple come to visit us for a week, and when we showed them their room the man said "A DOUBLE BED! We haven't slept in a double bed In years! At home we have twin beds." Hi« wife gave him a ditty look so he kept still. We would have offered them our bedroom, but we have a double bed, too. After they went home we heard from a mutual friend that they didn't enjoy their stay with us because they aren't used to sleeping together. Must we exchange the double bed for twin beds to ac- comodate people like that? DEAR HOSTESS: No! Offer your guests what you have. H the accommodations don't meet with their approval, introduce them to someone who specializes in catering to guests: Conrad Hilton! DEAR ABBY: I am a not- so-young bachelor who had the misfortune of falling in love with a married woman. I have no desire to steal her from her husband, but I would like to leave her everything I have, which is a considerable sum. In your opinion, would this hurt her reputation in any way? I would not embarrass her for the world. Her husband is hard - work- Ing, but he doesn't have much She is a sweet woman with two nice children. I would like her to have an easier life and her children to be assurted of their educations. I have no relatives to leave anything to No one in our town is aware that we even knew each oth- THINKING OUT LOUD DEAR THINKING: Your reasons for wanting to leave everything to this woman are benevolent, and I g«e no reason why you should not do so. Sh could be "embar- raised" only if the inheritance came as a surprise and gossip resulted. Talk it over with her first, and then consult your lawyer for the belt way to handle It. PEAR ABBY: How can you tactfully get out of letting someone borrow your wedding gown and veil? I suppose I sound very selfish, but I want to keep them in good condition and I have heard of girls who have let friends wear their gowns and they got them back ruined. The girl who has asked to borrow mine is not a relative. In fact she isn't even a close friend, but we work together and I will have to see her every day I hate to lie. DEAR NAMELESS: Why lie? Tell her the truth. But don't expect the would - be borrower to be delighted with your refusal. DEAR ABBY: "FOR MORALITY," who stated that she didn't want her children associating with children of divorced couple because they all run wild and had no supervision at home, was truly "mad" and I am glad you told her so. Her false analogy reminded me of something I learned in psychology class: "All Indians walk in single file — at least, the only one I ever saw did." . DIVORCED AND HAPPIER NEW YORK (AP) - It's hard to get rich going around in circles. But that's how Francis Barry became a millionaire. At 58, self-made as any man can be, he is a major power on the New Yor waterfront. He is the president and chief owner of three shipping companies — the Circle Line, which carries sightseers around Manhattan; the Statue of Liberty ferry, and the famed old Hudson River Day Line. "Last year our 15 vessels carried about 2Vt million passengers," said Barry, not without pride. That's almost three times as many as entered or left the port of New York by sea. Son of a stevedore who finally achieved an Irish immigrant's dream of glory by buying his own saloon, Barry was born and raised here in Hell's Kitchen, where a lad to survive had to be quick on his feet and fast with his fists. "We never had any money," he said, "but since the neighbors weren't too well-heeled it didn't matter. I suppose we were poor but didn't know it. "We lived in an old cold-water tenement that's still standing, Every Saturday morning a man would come out of the barber shop downstairs and throw 20 or 30 pennies in the air. "What a scramble! That was the big day of the week for us kids." Barry isn't a high school dropout. He never got that far. He reached his educational peak at 13, when he finished parochial school. "I played Abraham Lincoln in the graduation play, was elected president of the class, and ran. the 75- and 100-yard dash," he recalled. 'I had a scholarship to high school but felt I couldn't afford to take it." Barry, who had been pushing trunks part-time through the clothing district since he was 10, felt .he was in clover .when he landed a $12-a-week job as a messenger for the U.S. Customs Service. But 10 years later he had worked up to $100 a month. Neighbors thought he was out of his mind when he left the government payroll to work for a customs brokerage firm. * * * In a few years, Barry became a partner and then sole owner of one of the largest customs brokerage firms in the nation, representing some 33 steamship lines. He surprised others in the field by taking in three partners and giving them a 49 per cent interest in the firm. "It pays to keep good men with you," he remarked. "That's better than having to compete against them."
