fig» Ten *• Hythwlfle '(Ait.) Courier News — Saturday, November 28,1967 ——by Abigail Van Buren—•— Your Move Is The Right One DEAR ABEY: My husband (Arnie) and I both work. Arnie drives 35 miles round trip •to work every day, and I drive 30, in the opposite direction. Well, Arnie got one too many moving violations and, he had his driver's license suspended for a year, so now I have to drive him to work and back every day. It keeps me on the run because we have children at home, but I am not complaining. Here's the problem: Arnie has come up with the idea of staying with one of the guys he works with. This coworker (I'll call him Sammy) is divorced and swings pretty good, and there are always these cute single girls hanging around Sammy's apartment. I know my husband, and he wouldn't just sit around and twiddle his thumbs. Arnie says he doesn't want me to get worn out driving him, but if I'm not complaining, why should he? Should I stick to my decision or not? ARME'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: Stick to yonr decision. Tell Arnie you have had enough of his moving violations, without asking for other kinds. And if anyone is gonna get worn out, it will be yon. Driving! ; DEAR ABBY: I have a problem which comes up so often it isn't even funny, and almost everyone I know is guilty of it. This happens at my house, or when I'm at .'someone else's house. When my kids start acting up and doing things they know they shouldn't and I correct them, the friend (or relative) will butt in and say, "0, leave them alone. They aren't hurting anything. They're only kids. Relax and quit picking on them!" They say this right in front of the children and then what am I supposed to do? ROPE'S END DEAR END: First I'll tell you what NOT to do. Don't let your children escape punishment they have coming just because frieeds or relatives arc present. Tell those who attempt to interfere that your children NEED discipline, whether company is there or not, and their cooperation would be very much appreciated. DEAR ABBY: I am a 19- year-old girl who works in a factory with both men and women. Much of my work con sists of bending from the waist down to pick up parts. My problem is my parents won't allow me to wear slacks to work. They say slacks are indecent for a lady to wear. I give one-tenth of my paycheck home each week, and most of my social activities center around the church, so you couldn't call me a rebellious person. I wouldn't wear slacks on the streets or any- to work. What is your opinion of this? ROCKFORD, 0. DEAR ROCKFORD: From your description of the kind of work you do, I think slacks would Inappropriate. Be sure to get a ladylike fit, and don't try to stretch things too far. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069.

Clergy Slip; Ouija Board By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Ouija boards, those wooden slabs decorated with mystical signs and letters and used to seek anwer from the spirit world, are becoming common items in American households. This is seen by a Washington, D.C., analyst of religious affairs an an indication that church institutions are failing to deal suf- ficietnly with human concern about supernatural realities. "Most of the churches i.their about supernatural realities. "Most of the churches in their presentation nowadays tend to ignore or downgrade the supernatural and mysterious," said Kenneth H. Wood, a Seventh- day Adventist minister and editor of the denomination's Review and Herald. "This has left people wide open for all kinds of deviations to fill the vacuum." He assembled details on the matter for his church's publication. He said in an interview that spritism—attempts to make contact with the dead — has "been growing stronger all the time," involving pitfalls for the Christian faith. He cited various evidence, in eluding increased attention to seances, the growing interest in psychic pheomenon, the preoccupation of some clergymen with such activity, in addition to the ouija board boom. Although the board is mostly a home pasttime, often taken lightly, he said it has become the top seller among games, the spirit-dealing board surpassing the money-dealing game, Monopoly, for the first time in 32 years. Ouija board sales were expected to exceed two million in PI body floats on a cushion of warm, sterile air, is especially designed for the treatment of severe burn cases, and has been developed by doctors working with Hovercraft engineers. The first two patients have already been successfully treated on Hoverbeds, and its backers are so enthusiastic that they are talking about Mark 2 a n d Mark 3 models. One patient was burning waste paper in a gale force wind when his oily clothes caught fire; the other had burns over one-third of his body. Both were placed on Hoverbeds where their bodies were us- pended on air cushions, and as a result the weeping areas of the burns dried rapidly. The Hoverbed uses what is called a "segmented skirt," which is an outgrowth of the Hovercraft air cushion principle. In this case, a bag made of nylon and coated with synthetic rubber is hung inside the bed's rigid framwork. The top of the bag consists of two rows of pockets, or skirt segments, which are inflated when warm, sterile air is pumped into them. When the patient is placed on the bed the pockets form a seal along the side of his body, and. fall away beneath it. The body is thus left solely supported on air. * * * The same segmented skirt principle was used recently /i Manchester to move an oil storage tank 50 feet in diameter, and with a storage capacity of 300,000 gallons from one site to another. The rubberized skirt was fitted around the base of the tank, and the segments inflated until the tank was floating on an air cushion. It was then easily towed away by a tractor. During ttie operation the giant tank traveled over two stretches of rough ground, a railway line, and a road, and was turned through 180 degrees at its new site. Use of the skirt eliminates jacking up the tank and laying tracks for it to be moved on rollers. A bright future is predicted for the new invention. ' The postwar history of British inventions has been a sad one, with scientists and engineers having to look to other countries for finance that was not forthcoming at home. This process has been reversed in the case of the Hovercraft, tft wfiich Britain stands to reap the full rewards of her Inventive genius. 1967, he said, adding, "Amr- 1967, he said, adding, "Americans are tremendously interested in the occult." However, he said that many churches, in their current emphasis on secular involvement and service, have increasingly skipped teachings about the other-worldly sacred realm, leaving a need in the human conscience. To fill the gap, more and more people have turned to non-Biblical substitutes, he said. He cited Leviticus 19:31 as a warning against such activity. It says: "Do not turn to med- ums or wizards; do not seek them out, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God." In other areas, however, numerous clergymen recently have encouraged research into psychic phenomena - telepathy, clairvoyance, telekinesis—and related fields of intangible processes. A national organization, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, including many clergymen and lay Christians, was formed several years ago to promote such work. $3.00 $2.00' (1.00 THE !
