Tliis is the second time around for both of us. We both have teen-aged children. His live with their mother, snd mine live with us. Gordon's ex-wife calls him almost every evening to discuss some "problem" she is having with the children. I don't call my ex-husband every night with "problefns" concerning our children. Am I wrong to object to Gordon's ex - wife bothering him so much? Now they are divorced I feel he should he finisiied with her. He sees his children every Sunday, and I think if his ex-wife has any problems to talk over with him, she should do it then. I would like your opinion. HAD IT DEAR HAD IT: Gordon may very well be "finished" with his ex-wife, but no proper father is "finished" with his children until they are grown and on their own. If Gordon feels that his ex- wife is "bothering" him, it is up to him to tell her so. If he doesn't complain, perhaps he wants to he made aware of his children's problems. Yours is the battle nearly every woman fights when she marries a divorced man whose children live with their mother. If you are wise, you will be both patient and silent. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were divorced 4 years ago, but the flame is still burning, and we see each other quite often. Lately he has been coming over here for din ner and then we watch TV together and he sometimes stays all night. My problem is the nighbors. They know his car, and they see it parked in my driveway all night, and I understand they have been running their mouths a mil* • minute. ,W« *n both * - : — i^i i) yjj Van Bnren s/ness 1 Unlicensed more than 40 years of age, and I think what we do is our own business. Right? TALKED ABOUT DEAR TALKED: What you do is your business, but you should be aware that you are doing business without a license. DEAR A5BY: Our son is going to be married to a very high class girl. I mean she comes from very high society people. The girl's mother ask ed me to give her a list of friends and relatives we want invited to the wedding, and she didn't set any limit. She said we could invite as many as we wanted as the church will hold 1,500 and they are inviting their whole family. I hope I don't sound like a snob, but we have some relatives we see only at funerals, and to tell you the truth, I don't think they'll fit in very well with the girl's people. Can I invite just part of our family without inviting them all? GROOM'S MOM DEAR MOM: Everyone has relatives who won't "fit in" everywhere. If you invite the family, invite the whole family. The other side will probably have a lot of relatives who will fit in just dandy with some of your misfits. CONFIDENTIAL TO "D" Yes, it is easier to give up smoking if one substitutes something else for it. But don't punish your friends by substituting bragging for smoking. Troubled?

Conjecturing about our future has become a popular parolor game as wounded mankind limps its way through the final third of the most astonishing century the earth has ever endured. There's no doubt there'll be some changes made, and the rate of change may even ac- clerate as we lose more anchors of the commonplace. Assuming that human life will still exist at the dawn of the 21st century— and that is quite an assumption—here's one man's prediction of how it will operate: Transplants of kneecaps will enable professional football players to stay in the game until the age of 50. Forced feeding and growth capsules fed them in youth will produce tackles who weigh a ton each on the hoof and quarterbacks eight feet tall. There will he fewer birds, as half the countryside will be paved. Parking places will become hereditary. A cup of drugstore coffee will cost 50 cents. So will bubble gum. Nickels and pennies will no longer be minted, and children will regard a dime with the same contempt they now do a penny. The average job will take only 10 hours of work a week, but in order to live in the style which they prefer most men will hold at least four other moonlighting jobs, thus making a total work week of 50 hours. Housewives will all take degrees in electronic engineering in order to save money by repairing the new gedgets in the home. To keep them from being exterminated, all wild animals will be placed in zoos except for Social Security Question Box (This column answers some of the most frequently asked Social Security questions. Reader's questions should be sent to "Social Security Administration, P. 0. Box 467, Blytheville) Q. After reading the article in the "Reader's Digest," the ladies here at the home are worrying about what we will do when social security runs out of money and our social security payments stop. Is this likely to happen soon? A. Stop worrying, the social security program is not going to run out of money. Commenting in the "Congressional Record" on the Reader's Digest article, Congressman Wilbur Mills Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, stated: "The Committee on Ways and Means has recently completed a most exhaustive reexamination of the contributory, wage- related social security program. The program is actuarially and financially sound... "Because of the importance in rebutting the erroneous implications contained in the Stevenson article," Congressman Mills said, "I am inserting in the "Congressional Record" a statement by the Under Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, Wilbur J. Cohen, replying to this article..." I am sending you a copy of Mr. Cohen's statement which takes up the points in the "Digest" article in detail. You may want to pass it around among the other ladies. If they would like copies of their own, extra copies are available at our office. Q. I have just changed my name through marriage how can I correct my Social Security record? My employer states he must have my name shown correctly in order to report my wages. A. Complete the enclosed "Change in name card," Form OAAD-7003 and return it. A new social security card showing your new name will then be mailed 1 to you. Q. I stated getting my social security at age 62. Since then I have become cisabled. Can I draw disability benefits? A. If your disability began at least six months before the month you were or will be age 65, a period of disability may b« established for you. If you are now under age 56, your retirement benefit may be cnang- ed to » slightly hijher disability btnttii. -^ ••III! Ml one long grizzly bear in Mon« tana. It will carry a sign on it warning that it has been declared a living national monument. To cut down the danger from Sunday drivers, each cur owner will be allowed to take his car out of the garage only on every other Sabbath. Mugging will die out as each citizen will be allowed to carry only 55 in change in his pocket. All purchases over that amount will be charged to individual credit accounts controlled by the federal government. Uncle Sam will collect the money from your paycheck each month. There will be no way to duck paying bills. Surgeons will still perform operations, but otherwise doctors will have no contact with patients. If you feel you are sick, you can have your ailment checked in a central clinic by a computer. However, to keep medicine from becoming too impersonal, you will be allowed to be diagnosed by the computer f- your choice. Children will remain in the home only until their 13th birthday. During their teen years they will be compelled to do forced labor on government prison farms and in prison factories and attend compulsory classes at which they will be taught how to behave like human beings. All young people will be forced to marry at 21, remain in college until 25, and complete the birth of any children they wish by the tune they are 30. Then they will be given an injection which will make them forget all about sex, or break into uncontrollable laughter whenever the word is mentioned. The injection will last for life. As cities will have become too valuable to be destroyed, Australia will be evacuated and made into the world's battlefield. All international wars will be fought there, and only one war will be permitted at a time. They will be waged by robots, criminals, tax dodgers, and people just too darned cantankerous to sit into a civilized pattern. But there won't be many people like that, since it will be illegal to be unhappy. "Merry pills" to guarantee a cheerful mood will be distributed free by governments to everyone. Yep, that's the way things will probably be in the year 2000. In a way I'm kind of sorry I won't be here to see it all. And in a way I'm grateful that thesa blessings are reserved for posterity.
