Van Boren—«— Girl in Trouble Asking for More DEAR,ABBY: ,My daughter wrote a letter to you, but she didn't mail it. I-found it on her desk. Everything she wrote was true, but she left out a few very 'important fact, Here is her letter: "Dear Abby, I am a 16-year-old girl "in trouble," and my mother refuses to let me get married. The boy I'm going with is 19 • and wants to marry me. We've gone together for seven months. My mother THINKS she is going to send me to a home for unwed mothers and get me to give the baby up, but she is altogether mistaken and I have told her so. CARES" Abby, I think you ought to know 'that my daughter is not yet 16. The boy is married, but not living with his wife. He says he will get a quick divorce and marry my daughter, but in my eyes he will make a very poor husband. I want h^r to go to a home for unwed mothers and give her baby up, but she doesn't want to. Abby, is it such a terrible thing for a girl to give her baby to a family who can give it all the advantages if the girl is not equipped to care for it? I married at. 16, had a family right away, and had to raise my children alone as my husband walked out on me. No one knows how rough this kind of life can be unless she has gone thru it. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, let alone my own. daughter: I want her to finish high school, go on to college, and meet a nice man who will marry her and give her a better life than I have had.. i3fi • She's-pretty and intelligent and could easily do jt if she doesn't spoil everything now. She has already made one mistake. How can I keep her from making two? HER MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: First, I don't .think it is so "terrible to give a baby up for adoption if the mother is not "equipped" to care for it. (By "equipped" I don't mean with material things I refer to a good home with two parents who love each other and have a solid marriage.) A i*-y*ar-old married boy who has "gone with" a girt who fa not yet II, .and has gotten her pregnant, is not my Mea of a very promt*- ing husband. Even lib* wen to get a "quick divorce" and marry the girl, it wMtld oHtr no real sola, don. M your daughter is wise, she'll listen to you'. .If she won't listen to yon, I hope she'll read these words, and listen to me. I agree with you wholeheartedly;'" DEAR ABBY: I recently attended an open-house party honoring-a couple who were cerebrating their golden wedding anniversary. I took them a very nice gift. I noticed a beautiful three- tier wedding cake on the buffet table, but the guests were served plain home - baked cake. Far as I know, no one even got a taste of the beautiful wedding cake. I can't understand why anyone would order an expensive cake to serve 100 people, and then give their guests plain, home - baked cake. I was very much insulted. Both guests of honor have high blood pressure and diabetes and cannot eat sweets anyway. Was I wrong to feel insulted? GUEST WITH A GIFT DEAR GUEST: If you are suggesting that your gift entitled you to a piece of the "beautiful wedding cake," I think you're wrong. Whether one serves the anniversary cake to guests, saves it to eat privately, or lets it petrify, should be of no concern to the guests. DEAR ABBY: In reply to the rude ones who ask others how old they are, I have had a stock answer for years. I simply say, "I'm over 21." It's true. I'm WAY over 21. "57" IN SAN DIEGO Problems?

What in the world can anyone find to laugh about in a year in which I'll be 57 years old? Certainly it is no laughing matter to me. On the other hand, it isn't anything to cry about either. The advent of a birthday, even to a child, always stirs one to philosophic musings. But the approach of a 57th natal anniversary produces no stunning enlightenments, even though at 57 one is certainly getting nearer heave. And it leaves the rest of mankind completely unimpressed. If you tell a friend your 57th birthday is coming up, he will look at you as if you were mildly daft and then ask, new?" Today In History Today is Tuesday, Jan. 16, the 16th day of 1968. There are 350 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1778, France recognized the independence of the United States. On this date: In 1815, Portugal's South American colony; came a kingdom. But on the vague possibility that someone might have a curiosity about bow life is at 57, here is the way it seems to one who has reached that niche of mortality: Te condition of the weather fascinates you more than debates on the future of the miniskirt. When a shoestring breaks you don't throw it away. You tie it together and go right on wearing it. You'd rather be remembered on your birthday than at Christmas. When you see your picture in your old high school or college yearbook, the face reminds you of someone you used to know well but now have pretty much forgotten. j You get more real pleasure out of reading a seed catalog 'So what else is than a naughty new novel. The snows of today are nowhere near as deep as those that fell in your youth, but for some reason they are harder to wade through. It worries your wife if you get your feet wet. Even if a football game is! close, you leave the stadium five minutes before it is over so that you won't get caught in the mob. You become adjusted to the idea that indigestion is just a normal way of life. As you visit the dentist less often—after all, there isn't much left for him to work on—you visit the doctor more. Whenever some bright young Brazil, be- whiz kid comes up with a new suggestion during an office conference, you snicker inside. It is old stuff to you. You can remember at least three other times during your career when that same suggestion was ad- anced and discarded. It annoys you now and then when you start to look around for your bifocals and discover you already have them on. No one who has a better job than you worries that you may take it away from him. If you were going to do it, you'd have done t by now. The social graces don't trouble you so much. If you feel like scratching in public, you go right ahead and scratch in public. It flatters you when your daughter tells you, "I know'yoa ought to take off some of that weight, Dad, but did there; wouldn't be as much of you to; love." J The sight of a bed of flowers- in spring can startle your heart; with a sudden feeling of beauty tbat brings you close to tears* V V You don't lose your temper so often over small crises, because you are by now resignedly aware that life consists largely in the confronting and surviving of small crises. •••-'•• You find more things to be grateful for than to envy or ra* gret. •••; So what's so bad about being- 57? In 1883, the U.S. Civil Service was formed. In 1920, prohibition began in the United States as the 18tti Amendment to the Constitution went into effect. In 1942, movie actress Carol Lombard and 21 others were killed in an airliner crash near Las Vegas, Nev. In 1944, Gen. Dwight D. Efs- enhower arrived in London to I take command of the Allied in vasion force in World War II. In 1952, foreign diplomats in Moscow were ordered to limit their movements to within 25 miles of the city.
