Child's Learning Begins at Home DEAR ABBY: My wife and I are both college graduates, and our nine : year-old daughter, who is in the 4th grade, loves to read. Each week she goes to the library and brings home books, which she devours. She also loves to read your column in the newspaper. Afaby, I can explain murders and riots to her, but how can I explain some of the things she reads about in your column? This week she asked me what a "homosexual" was. She also wanted to know how you get a "venereal" disease! I told her that a homosexual was a person who had a problem getting along with the opposite sex, and a venereal disease was a serious infection. Must I Hide the newspaper from my child?

You are fortunate to have a child who loves to read, and doubly fortunate that she asks you to explain things she docs not understand. Few children reach maturity without bearing a good deal about the subjects you mentioned, and vrhat better place than home is there for them to learn the facts? You can "hide" the newspaper from your child, but you cannot hide from her the somewhat less than lovely truths of life. milled the ultimate sin — thai one congratulates the groom, and to the bride she says, "Besl Wishes."

DEAR ABBY: A girl I have known all thru high school, and three years of college was recently married. I ran into this girl at the sludent's 'lounge, and just automatically said, "I hear you got married. Congratulations!" She seemed annoyed, and then she said, "Gosh, you congratulate me as if you thought it would never happen." Since this was the farthest thing from my mind, I was shocked. My mother said I had com- DEAR ABBY: My husband is a year away from relire- menl, at which lime we plan to buy a trailer and live in Florida, I possess many family heirlooms.
