Any man who proposes marriage to a widow who wears her dress above her knees deserves his fate. The real reason many a wife objects to having her husband smoke cigars is that they give him a satisfaction that has absolutely nothing to do with her.

UtIIIIIIIIUlKllllillillillUllllilliillilM DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is 13, and everyone who meets her tells us how lucky we are to have such a sweet, well- mannered, intelligent child. The truth is, she's deceitful, cruel, and a real problem. We can't even keep a pet for fear she'll torture it to death. (She's already done away with a kitten and a full - grown poodle.) She cannot be trusted and is such a clever little liar she worries us. Outside the home she puts on a goody - goody act that could fool anybody. Her ambition is to be an actress, and she would make a good one. How can we straighten her out? She's not dumb. In fact, she's too smart for her own good. Don't suggest a psychiatrist. She could, turn on the charm and have him eating out of her hand in no time, "SARAH BERNHARDT'S" MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: A psychiatrist is exactly what she needs. And don't worry about his eating out of her hand. Mare likely it will be the other way around. And more important, he'll be able to tell you whether she Is just "going thru a stage" or is ON one. DEAR ABBY: A woman I see quite often but do not know very well came right out and asked me if I had ever had my face lifted! I never have and that is what I told her, but I could tell by the way she looked at me that she didn't quite believe me. Later I heard that she asked a friend of ;nine the same question about me. What would you make of such a person? INSULTED DEAR INSULTED: A stranger DEAR ABBY: My 10-year- old son is a Little Leaguer. The position he holds is "bench - warmer." He and several Other boys attend practice every night. Last night he announced that he didn't want to go to any more games, because it was boring just sitting in the dugout. But he said he wanted to continue least everybody got to play then. Now I know, this isn't an earth - shaking problem, but it seems to me the managers and coaches place too much emphasis on winning. I think it is only fair that each boy gets a chance to play, no matter how poor he is. It would be interesting to hear from some of the managers and coaches out there. BENCH-WARMER'S MOM DEAR ABBY: I chuckled when I read the letter from the "Hurt Grandmother," who had bought so many lovely little dresses for her granddaughters, but saw them only in mismatched jeans and blouses. I was reminded of a trick I once played on my mother, who also used to buy my daughters gorgeous dresses on every occasion. When I knew mother was coming, I quickly washed two of the lovely fancy dresses she had given my girls. As usual, mother asked if she could "do anything" while I prepared dinner. I told her she could iron the two dresses. Abby, it took her exactly one hour and five minutes to iron those two dresses! Not one word was spoken, but after that she bought the girls darling little slack outfits. Of the drip-dry variety. SNEAKY DIPLOMAT Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069.

The cars, scaled at l-24th and l-32nd, are complex miniatures of grand prix racing cars, stock cars, drag racers and — yes, even a Batmobile. They are today to some what model trains and airplanes have been for the younger set, and the oldsters (over 12) too, of other years. "It's the thrill and excitement of sports car racing without any of the danger," explained Chad Chapman, assistant manager of Park Plaza Raceways here. * * * Raceways is a $60,000 red- carpet operation, Chapman said, with much of the atmosphere and glamour of a big- time race track. There are five courses for drivers to complete on, each wifii miniature grandstands, landscaping and other paraphernalia of the racing world. Time on each track varies in price according to its length and difficulty and whether a driver bring his own car and 'controller." The smallest track costs 25 cents for 15 minutes, and the largest costs $1.60 an hour. If a car and controler are rented, add another $1.00 an hour. The cars are powered by a Hate to write letters?

A race is started by the call: "Drivers ready... thumbs up... go." Thumbs up means the driver's finger is lifted off the starter button on the controller. Raceways sponsors regular sanctioned races, with car kits, movie passes, parts and similar items as prizes, Chapman said. * * * "We figure about 40 per cent of our drivers are over 18," he said, "and most of them own their own cars and controllers."

As many as 245 earthquakes have been recorded in one week rear wheels. The electric motor has wires that attach to two small metal braids separated by a plastic snout. The snout, when the car is set on the track, drops into a hollow grove on the track—the "slot"—from whence the sport gets its name. The * metal * * braids then connect with a 12 volt direct current system that activates the motor. The amount of current fed to the motor is governed by the controller in the driver's hand.
