DEAR ABBY: An old flame cf ray husband is now married (Thank heavens.) She is pregnant and is big as a barrel. Well, she sings in the choir, and last Sunday was there, right in the front row, looking a sight, and my mother-in-law said she was the prettiest girl in the choir. My husband agreed with her! .Abby, I nearly flipped. Do jrou think it was proper for a woman that bUt-of-shape to ling in a choir that doesn't provide choir robes? I have been in quite a few churches and have never seen anything like that. WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: If she had been just any "out- of-shape" choir member would it have offended you? I doubt it. Be honest. Your mother - in - law's needling, and your husband's agreement with her were the real 'irritants. Since when is a woman big with child out of place in a church — in the •'New Of Men In Service -1st Lt. Billy F. Hatch, son of Mrs. Verdie C.

DEAR ABBY: 1 recently borrowed a beautiful, antique, crystal cut glass punch bowl from a bachelor friend. It had been given to him by his family. Well, you guessed it. When I washed it, I used too hot water, and the bowl split right down the middle — in half! I took it to a china repair shop an they assured me of a first - cass job for $14. They did say that altho it would hardly be noticeable it would lose much of its value if the owner ever wanted to sell it. What should I do, Abby? I must tell the man, of course, and I would gladly replace the bowl no matter what the cost. Should I go ahead and have the bowl repaired? Or should I just try to find a replacement? Please help me. I am desperate. BORROWED TROUBLE DEAR TROUBLE: First find a replacement as nearly like the original. Present it to the gentleman with your apologies and an explanation. Return the broken bowl and let him decide whether he wants to have it repaired. DEAR ABBY: I would give 10 years of my life to be a professional wrestler, but I don't know how to go about it. I am 42 years old, weigh 145 pounds, and know I would be good at wrestling if I had some training. I c-.n lift 200 pounds off the floor and shoulder it with no trouble at all. I work in a furniture factory nine hours a day, then go home and work around the house until 11 p.m., and I'm still not tired. My children are grown, and I could go anywhere in the country for training. I am also a lady. Can you help me? WANTS TO WRESTLE DEAR WANTS: Ask the sports editor of your local newspaper how to contact a promoter. Or inquire at the local gym where wrestlers work out. This shouldn't be a hard game to muscle in on. Good luck. CONFIDENTIAL TO PEGGY: Don't let him retire if you can talk him out of it. You'll have twice as much husband on half as much income.

This week it was John Wayne's turn. Why was the event held at [Jniversity City, where Wayne hasn't worked since "The Spoilers" in 1942? Reports found when they arrived. Th were handed releases announc- ng that the star would appear n two Universal films, a Western called "The War Wagon" and "The Green Berets," based on the novel about the Viet Nam war. Wayne had driven up from his mme at Newport Beach, and he wore a plaid shirt, white tie, >lue jacket, black slacks and ilue sneakers, the kind that 'achtmen wear. He sipped cof- ee patiently as the television ameramen set up for the con- erence. Finally his patience ran out md he called, "Roll 'em'. Actor George Chandler, chairman of the Holywood Overseas Committee, lauded Wayne's jerformance in Viet Nam. He aid that Wayne was the first to volunteer when the Defense Department asked for stars to visit the war a year ago. * * * "I'm having a little battle of my own," wrote Wayne, who was then recovering from a cancer operation, "but I'll go as soon as the doctors let me."

Thirty out NKW YORK (AP) - Millions, of people take vacation trips this time of year in order to have something to. write' about on postcards. Postcards are the billboards of the common man on which the chronicles in deathly prose the story of his passing: "Drove 550 miles today. Hope to make 600 tomorrow." "Wish you were.— instead of me. This motel charges $18 per day, and even more on days when they put water in the swimming pool." "Having wonderful time. Hope you are changing the gravel in the cat's box regularly." Writing postcards is undoubtedly our most widespread form of pop art. It is as American as the hot dog, Hie pizza pie and chop suey. But for a people inventive enough to come up with the skyscraper, the airplane and bubble gum, it is amazing how our lack of ingenuity falters when we have to put down our thoughts on a postal card. Words fail us, or the words we do summon up strike us as hollow even as we write them. No scholar has won his Ph.D. by a profound study oil "social consciousness in U.S. postcard literature," because it is rarely conscious and it is never literature. No Nobel Prize has ever been, awarded to a postcard author, anymore than it has been given to any aviator for sky writing.. ' Men are peculiary. inept at composing postcards. The average man will waste an afternoon, bite his tongue raw, and develop writer's cramp composing toee postcards,.such as: "Raining * when * we passed through Yellowstone. However, did see two,bears and a foresl ranger." ••••:" "Gas here costs two cents a gal less than in'our town. Everything okay in the office? Regards to the gaug." "Just saw Niagara Falls. Great place for a guy who likes outdoor showers." Women are Just the. other way. They take a peculiar delight in postcards. They can even write them while descending on mule- back into the grand canyon. A postcard is a definite challenge to a woman. She wants to be sure she gets her 4-cenl stamp's worth. Where a man finds nothing to say, she can't find enough space to chronicle her scenery-thrilled soul.... The fellow -who ''engraves the Lord's Prayer in miniature on a penny is a piker compared to her. She tries to compress an encyclopedia on every postcard. The big mistake most people make is in sending postcards to friends and acquaintances. It would be much wiser if they" mailed them to themselves. Then, when they got home, they'd have a lot of fun looking at the pictures of all the scenic? places they visited — the beautiful places they hadn't had time to enjoy because they were too darned busy writing postcards.
