Afler she east she goes right into the living room and sits down. If one of the younger children asks her to play with them, she says, "I don't feel like it." She comments on items in my home as follows: "My mother has one just like it, only her's is more expensive. Or bigger, or newer." My son will be getting another leave soon, then I'll have to wait on her hand and foot again. She never says thank you for anything. DEAR ABBY: My son, who is in the service is engaged to a girl he has been going with for over a year. He's home on leave now, and his girl has been at our house night and day. The only meal she doesn't have here is breakfast. There are seven of us in the family.

The purpose of the march- organized by teacher Roger Tilford and supported by officials of Samuel Ach Junior High— ivas to congratulate Police Capt. Thomas Dixon on his 43rd birthday. The youngsters sang patriotic songs, listened to a few brief speeches and stayed around to meet policemen and enjoy refreshments provided by the officers. Students of the predominantly Negro school in the Avondale section staged a similar march last Christmas to bring gifts to the policemen. I haven't said anything to her as yet because I don't want to hurt my son, but am I wrong for keeping still? CONCERNED MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: What is there to say? The girl is obviously ill - trained, ill- mannered and unperceptive. Since she is a guest iui your home, you can't very well ask her to "help" you. If your son has chosen her to be his wife, and is blind to her deficiencies, she is going to be HIS problem. Pray that he gets wise before it's too late. DEAR ABBY: My mother- in-law is so superstitious it isn't even funny. I don't mind if she believes in all those crazy superstitions, but now she's starting in on me. I have been married for four years, and am expecting my first baby in two months, and this crepe-hanger mother-in-law of mine keeps insisting that it is "bad luck" to buy even a rattle for the baby until it gets here, because "something might happen." I am furious, Abby. Some of my friends want to have a shower for me,- but w i t h all this silly superstitious talk, how can I let them? I am healthy as a horse and would like to prepare for my baby, but I hate to go be- hind my mother-in-law's back. FURIOUS DEAR FURIOUS: Tell your mother-in-law that YOU aren't superstitious, and you prefer to be prepared for the baby you have every reason to believe you will have. Then go ahead and prpare and good luck. DEAR ABBY: To the mother who objected because her husband kissed their 14- year-old son on the mouth, I say, "SHAME-" Our world is full of germs and disease, but the worse disease of all is hate. A father who loves his son enough to plant a smacke- roo on his lips is, in my opinion, a kind and loving father. Our youngest son is 21. He was on the aircraft carrier FORRESTAL when it caught fire in Tonkin Bay. And when he came home alive and safe, believe me, his father and I greeted him with more than a handshake. We took him in our arms and kissed him on the MOUTH. If there were any germs around, the love must have killed them all. Sincerely yours, MOTHER AND DAD DEAR ABBY: I know several young snips like that babysitter who left a note "CLEAN UP YOUR FILTHY HOUSE, PLEASE." of mind, your composure. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Meet the expectations ol kin while you are in the mood to do so and cement better relations with them. Begin an up- trend by being most practical. A good day to catch those you want to sell, or to make purchases. PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Running around k e e p i n g appointments, conferring with key people, etc., can produce some wonderful results. Although you are under pressure, work in a light and airy fashion. Be very sure of yourself.
