We give him a generous allowance, and if he asked for anything extra, we would be glad lo give it to him, but he doesn't ask, he. just helps himself. He doesn't "need" anything. He just steals for the thrill of stealing. ] know he has been in my purse and stolen money. And 1 have seen him take money From his father's wallet. He has stolen little things from his friends, and now f find thai he's taken things from the grocery store, drugstore and other places of business. 1 keep finding things in his room that 1 know he didn't buy. J have even threatened lo lake him lo the police station to frighten him, but nothing helps. Am I raising a criminal? Please help me. BROKENHEARTED MOTHER DEAU MOTHER: A child who steals for the "thrill" of stealing needs professional help. He can be straight- ened out it he's taken In hand early. 'Threatening him with the police li unwise. A policeman should be identified us a friend who protects 111 and our property, not an "enemy" who would take pleasure in punishing our wrongdoing. Ask your family doctor whom'to ice about this boy. DEAR ABBY: Isn't it true that if two people dance well together it means they are "in tune" and "meant for" each other? I heard somewhere that if a hoy and girl dance well together they will probably have other things in common and will most likely have a successful marriage. Please confirm this. LOVES TO DANCE DEAR LOVES: When two people dance well together, it means only one thing. They dance well together. Believe me, it meant nothing else. If you are using "dancing" at a basis for compatibility in marriage, forget it. DEAR ABBY: Our son is being married soon and being as how he never made it in college we would like to give him a large sum of money for a wedding gift. It says in the book of eti- 75 Yterrs Ago —In Blythivillt Mrs. Ross Dillon Hughes Jr. was complimented with a tea Friday at Blytheville Country Club by Mrs. R. D. Hughes Sr. when more than 150 guests called between three and five in the afternoon. Mrs. Farris McCalla, Mrs. Bob Logan, Mrs. R. A. Porter, Mrs. Harman Taylor, and Mrs. James Roy attended a fashion show tea in Osceola yesterday. Tlie Rustic Inn was the setting of a dessert bridge given last evening by Miss Nancy Holland in honor of Miss Betty Black, bride elect. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Owen left today for Henderson, Tenn., where they will visit friends and relatives. tiuet that checks given to brides and grooms should not be put on display with t h e rest of the wedding gifts. My husband doesn't go along with this. He feels that since we are giving the newlyweds so much money we should be given full credit for it. What is your opinion? GROOM'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Checks should not be "on display" along with the other wedding gifts. The book of eti- quet recommends displaying only the amount, but covering the signature, which strikes me as being pretty ridiculous. And any- oic who gives a large sum of money as a gift and wants to make sure he gets . "full credit" for it will, because he's the type who will tell everyone he knows. DEAR ABBY: To the "GUEST WITH A GIFT" who complained of eating homemade cake at a wedding reception, while a "beautiful three - tier wedding cake ttood untouched on th« buffet table:" You wouldn't have had any better luck at our silver wedding reception. We also had a three • tier beautiful "wedding" cake'on our buffet table but we didn't offer anyone a piece. It was a "baker's dummy" made of plaster of paris, loaned to us for the occasion, and intended for decoration only. Sincerely, THE ODD COUPLE Troubled?

Poling on Religon I David Poling Around two years ago tills advertisement appeared in a national literary magazine? "Young man soon to be released from prison desires employment opportunity. Willing to learn. High school graduate." OF the more than 500,000 people who subscribed to this mag- a/.mc, only two readers replied with offers of help. The prisoner is the forgotten man of our society. He is the victim of a system that has never really decided whether UK lawbreaker should be punished or rehabilitated, corrected or branded. Nowhere is this uncertainty of approach more confused than in the life of the C h r i s I i a n church. At limes there have been dynamic spurts of energy moving Ihe hearts of concerned people for dramatic and realistic prison reform. Unfor.i'- ]y, this loses momentum and yields to a vindictive streak • that permits oppressive attitudes and harsh controls to dominate the mood of our penal institutions. This vacillating ethic is seen clearly in the historic discussions about capital punishment. One group feels that it must live up to the iron fist that crunches through the Old Testament "eye for an eye, iooth for a lonlh "philosophy. Opponents, within She church, quickly respond with the compassion and example of Christ who was concerned enough lo forgive a thief who shared the gallows of Good Friday. At their best moments, Christians have been not only powerful in their persuasions for prison reform, whether it be Devil's Island or the chain gangs of the visitors to the cells of Sing Sing and Joliet. James V. Bennett made a thoughtful observation when lie was head of the Federal Bureau of Prisons: "All through the history of punishment runs the curious (act that practically the only people displaying a genuine interest in the criminals' lot are those driven by Ihe spirit of a religious mission." One of the exciting new voices in the church's concern for people in prison is George C. Handle, the Protestant chaplain at Sing Sing. Handle has been able to provide two sources of new aid to the overall problem. First of all, he is a brillitnt young counselor to to* -by david poling- men of Sing Sing as well as and involvement of key bust- ing out flf prison, to their families who suffer ness and professional leaders of This is a major breakthrough such painful separation. Second New York and Weslchester to in the whole rehabilitation pro- he has attracted the interest work personally with men com- cess. Should it catch on through tJJentat eut the country, 5t would mark the beginning of a massive thrust in the whole field of rehabilitation and recovery for our prison population. The prison is our parish and the prisoner must not be forgotten during his time of need and direction. -by William lawrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: I read your column on Dental Health and wonder if you can help me. My teeth were badly decayed and required silver fillings. Thanks to the great job my dentist did, I have no toothaches now and I can chew anything. Bui 1 don't like tne color of the fillings. They show through (he enamel and make my teeth look dark, almost black in places. What can be done? ANSWER: Silver amalgam is «n excellent fililling material and is universally used for re- pair of tooth structure destroyed by the ravages of decay. It's so important a part of dentistry that we simply couldn't exist without it. Yet silver amalgam does have serious disadvantages, not least of which is the above complaint — it sometimes stains teeth, and more often shows through thin, translucent enamel walls. The extent of this cosmetic defect varies according to location of decay and acount of tooth structure that is replaced, by formation of silver and other "... So if get s with in* ww m Vittnam «n<( tAe w«r on '•!, but Miii furntiturt we're winning 'th» 6«tf/e ffl. metal oxides which blacken teeth. This can be quite pronounced in some mouths depending on chemistry of saliva, diet habits and medicinal intake. Sometimes technique in placr ing fillings is important. Cosmetic defects can be minimized if cavities are lined first with dental varnish and a thin layer of cement before amalgam is placed. But this can't always be done, for technical reasons. If cosmetics are of first importance, consideration should be given to use of other available materials. In many cases, discolored areas can be cut away and replaced with synthetic porcelain or plastic fillings which look more like tooth enamel. Another solution is use o! full crowns of baked porcelain, or porcelain on gold/They make ideal restorations but are) more expensive than silver fillings. Dentistry needs a filling material that doesn't require extensive removal of tooth structure to stay in place; that is npt harmful to tooth and surrounding areas; that can withstand rigors of mastication; that, once placed, prevents further decay; and that looks like tooth enamel. We are perennially promised this but to date it hasn't been fulfilled. As the man says, if we can send someone to the moon, why can't we do something simple like invent a tooth-filling material that meet* these ijimple requirements? Pleas* send your questions •bout dental health to Dr. Lawrence in cart of this paper.

It attracted its army of guests in only slightly more than 34 years. Opened in July 1933, when Chicago was staging the first year of its Century of Progress world's fair, the annual visitation is nearing the 3'A million mark, The museum owes its world renown to the foresight of the lale Julius Rosenwald, merchant - millionaire. His $8 mil' lion endowment in the mid- 1920s, plus a $5 million bond issue and donations by school children and women's clubs, made it possible. It was created by the re'< habililation of the Fine Arts building of the Columbian Exposition of 1893. THE 8! fTHEVILLE GCORiER NEWS THE COWRIES NEWS CO. H W. HAINW. PUBLISH** A.
