M GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., May 26,1977 Mrs. Brooks reviews Truman book for Tourist Club Members of the Tourist Club chose tbe Holiday Inn as the setting for their annual spring luncheon which was attended by'» memters and a guest, Georgia Brooks, who provided the program. Mrs. Inei Corsberg read "Tire Boomerang" by Jack Crawford as the opening thought. In keeping with tbe theme "Great Ladies," MM. Brooks reviewed "Women of Courage" by Margaret Truman who wrote about 12 women who possessed outstanding courage. Mrs. Brooks, however, chose oily two ot these women. The first, Susan Livingsta, was tbe author's favorite heroine of tbe American Revolution. Her father was the "rebel governor" of New Jersey, md the family homestead called liberty Hall still stands and is owned by Livingston descendants. Susan . displayed great courage wlien she saved the borne and her father's private papers from being destroyed by British troopers when her father was away. Prudence Crandall, a Quaker girl from Connecticut, had decided early in life to be a teacher, and following graduation she was Invited to open a boarding school in her hometown of Canterbury. At a time when William Lloyd Garrison, a Boston editor, was launching the new abolitionism movement, a 17-yearHld black girl was invited to enroll in her school. In countering the rage of the community, Susan dismissed the white students and announced in March, 1S33, that her school would henceforth be open for "Misses of Color."- Tbe Black Law which made it illegal for anyone to establish within the state any institute of learning or academy for the instruction of colored people was passed the following May. Prudence Livingston went to Jail for a day, but this action aroused public sympathy for her cause.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old college girl with a high I.Q., hut I have a big problem concerning men. I relate very well to older men, but college men seem so immature that I can't work up any romantic interest in any of them. Believe me, I've tried. This year I've had two affairs with older men. I never thought I'd be "that kind of girl." It would really hurt my parents if they knew, so I'm very discreet about it. These men weren't just men I'd picked up somewhere, but people I'd known a long time. Abby. T want so much to be held and loved, but I don't want to be on the receiving end only. When a man gives me his love I do everything possible to give as much as I get. Right now I'm flirting with a married man who is 47. I'm sure nothing lasting can ever come of it, but I can't seem to help myself. Lately I've been having recurring suicidal thoughts and that scares the dayb'ghts out of me. Please help me. WANTS IX) BE LOVED DEAR WANTS: You're normal. EVERYBODY wants to be loved, but you may have some deep-seated emotional problems that'need to be resolved. If there's a Suicide Prevention Clinic hi your town, call them. They offer excellent counseling. Or call your mental health clinic for an appointment. If your college has a counseling service, take advantage of it. Please write again and tell me which of these recommendations you've pursued, and let me know how you're doing. I care. DEAR ABBY: Over drinks, my friend of 25 years informed me that the cocktail I was drinking contained more alcohol than the bottle of beer he was drinking. I told him I thought there was as much alcohol in his bottle of beer as there was in my cocktail. An argument followed, and now we have a bet on. I'm sure I'm right, hut I can't prove it. Can you help me? ABETATREILLY'S DEAR BET: One shot of whiskey (one and one-half ounces}, a glass of table wine (five ounces) and a pint of beer (16 ounces) all contain approximately the same amount of ethyl alcohol. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are the same age, hut he prefers older women. I don't know why he married me. He didn't have to. Soon after we were married, I found out he had been living with a woman in her forties since he was . 18. (He was then 23). He wanted to keep on seeing her, but I put a stop to it. Then he started seeing a neighbor's wife. She was in her early fifties. We had to move away from there before she broke up our marriage. When our first child was born, I hired an ugly old woman in her sixties to help me. I thought surely my husband could be trusted with her, but I was wrong. He was with her every chance he got. Everybody tells me I am nice looking. Is there something wrong with me? Or is it him? VEGAS DEAR VEGAS: It's him.

Membership is confined to those persons who are responsible for administering the personnel or industrial relations He cited the increasing tendency for people to sue personnel directors and managers and some of. the pitfalls a director might encounter, going into this phase quite extensively.
