Copyright (e) 1*71 by Erme Bombeck end Bit K«ane. Published by Deubledey a Company, Inc. ("With emotions ranging from despair to rage, parents look at their sons with matted hair curling over their shoulders and ther daughters with ropy skeins over their faces, and wonder why they MUST wear dirty blue jeans, flapping sandals, and assorted bits of clothing usually found in very unthriving thrift shops. I have developed a theory about this which may be offensive to mothers and housewives but contains, I believe, a germ of truth. The young like to look dirty because their homes are too neat.")—MARYA MANNES, journalist, author, lecturer and political commentator (Cleveland Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine, Oct. 12, 1969).

Acted In Most Brazen Manner MEMBERS of the Hutchinson Business and Professional Women's Club attended the fall conference for the 7th District of DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am heartsick and I need your opinion. Did I do the right thing? Bud is nearly 21, the oldest of three boys. He lives at home, attends college and worked full time all summer. Ml our friends consider Bud a model son. My husband susoected that he had been bringing girls to the apartment which he occupied since June. (The apartment is actually part of our home and Wedding Vows Are Exchanged We have an unmarried friend who visits our house about once every three years. Preparation for her visit makes the coronation look like an impulse. "This place looks like a bus station rest room after a protest march," I announce to the group. "We've got to re- score order." "Why?" "Because my friend Lydia Spotless is not married and doss not understand why we have poker chips in the planter in the hallway. Come to think of it, why do we have poker chips in the planter in the hallway?" "Because you made us get them out of the knife-and-fork drawer to make room for the keys that don't fit anywhere else and the fourth-class mail." Assign Work Areas "Oh. Well, I'm going to assign you areas to work. YOU defrost the refrigerator." "What's defrost, Mom?" "That's where you turn off the electricity and melt all the ice in the freezer and then turn it on and start all over again." "Won't the leftovers get ugly if we turn off the electricity?" "Throw them out." Theories I Have Blown "You can't throw them out," harped my son. "I was just on the verge of discovering a cure for penicillin." "Don't be cute. You can clean the stove. I'd do it but I'm a high school graduate." ; "How long will it take?" "Counting superficial burns and skin grafts, you should be finished in two or three days. Oh, and I want one of you to put a pencil beside the phone. I've been in Lydia's house and she has one." '•You're sure doing a lot of fussing for her." "I know. It's just that her house is decorated in Early Antiseptic. When I visited there last spring, I went into her bathroom and there wasn't one basketball in sight." "Where does she keep her basketballs?" "I have no idea." "She certainly sounds weird." Going All Out "Whatever she sounds, we are going all out for her. You all get busy. I am going to take the ironing board down." "A kitchen without an ironing board? Are you kidding. Mom? It's un-American. It's like Simon without Garfunkel." "I never told you this before, children, but there are some homes in America where mothers put up the ironing board Qnce a week, do their ironing in a day and take it down again." "That's easy for you to say," said my daughter. "But where do their kids put their schoolbooks when they come home from school? Or throw their coats? Or put the dog after a bath? Or stack the groceries when they bring them in from the car? Or do their homework? Or eat breakfast? Or shine shoes? Or iron their hair? Or press dirty gym shorts?" "That ironing board is family," said my son dramatically. "I don't care what Lydia Spotless thinks." "Okay," I said tiredly, "I'll give in on the ironing board, but get the Punch and Grow tomato plants out of the dining room, the dog collar and the trading stamps out of the bowl of fruit, the Christmas tinsel out of the carpet and the ping-pong paddles off the washer. Oh, and get the tropical fish food out of the spice rack. Lydia would never understand that." Next: Instant Vacation Michael Walters Jane Abildgaard Jane Abildgaard became the bride of Michael L. Walters Sunday in the First Presbyterian Church Chaoel. Parents of the couole are Mr. and Mrs. John K. Abildgaard, 1427 Prairie, Leo Walters, Topeka, and the late Mrs. Walters.

Edward Kumorowski Victoria McKay The marriage of Victoria DeBree McKav to Edward Morris Kumorowski, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Edward Kumorowski, 1603 Harding, is announced by her aunt, Mrs. David Archer Falk, Tampa, Fla.

He talked to the boy about moral values and promiscuity but did not make any accusations since he had no proof. Aug. 1, the apartment was rented and Bud moved back to his room in our home. Mrs. Edward Kumorowski (Victoria McKay) Two weeks ago I went to Bud's room to awaken him for school. I found him sleeping with a strange girl. This was two days prior to a family reunion. The house was full of relatives. I ordered the girl out, but said nothing to my husband for fear he'd take the roof off the place, regardless of the relatives. I told my son I wouldn't tolerate such bizarre behavior in the future and if he did it again he'd have to leave. This morning I found him in j bad with another girl. I ordered them both out and told my son to get out—for good. Tonight I had to tell my husband and he backed me up. What a bitter decision for a| mother to make. I am heartsick. But there are two younger children to consider. I am sick with worry about the boy's future. What would you have done? What can we do now?— No Name Please DEAR N.N.P, You did the right thing. That "model" boy behaved in a most brazen and inconsiderate manner. I can't see that you had an alterna tive. You had to kick him out If the boy wants to come back—with the understanding, of course, that he will never again repeat the insult — I would give him another chance.
