DEAR ABBY: I am a 24-year-old woman who has had enough.bad experiences with men to fill a book. I've always had a good figure and a pretty face, and! never had any trouble getting dates. The trouble is I want to get married, but none of the guys I've gone with has wanted to marry me. They all want affairs, but not marriage. I have had two abortions and have promised myself that I will not go to bed with another man unless he marries me first. Sex never gave me much pleasure. I just gave in to please the guy. I'm going with a man now who keeps trying to get me into bed, but I'm holding out. He promised that if he gets me pregnant he will marry me. Now I'm wondering if maybe that isn't the way to get him to marry me. I'd really like to marry him. I'm so mixed up I don't know what to do. Can you help me? WANTS MARRIAGE. DEAR WANTS: With regard to the man in your life: His promise to marry you if he gets you pregnant is about as worthless as he is. Stick to your decision. You're beginning to get it together. Don't permit yourself to be used. DEAR ABBY: My husband has been having an affair right in front of my face for more than two years. His "mistress" is a bit out. of the ordinary. It's a set of golf clubs. I married a golf nut. When he's not working or eating, he has an imaginary golf club in his hands, which he continually swings back and forth. His practice area ranges from my parents' home to our bedroom. He has left the house in a rainstorm to go to the driving range to practice! Other than his all-counsuming obsession with golf, he is probably the most perfect husband a woman could imagine. JEALOUS DEAR JEALOUS: I wonder if you know how lucky you are. If you aren't already a golfer, I urge you to develop an interest in the sport. Take lessons from a pro, keep your head down and keep your eye on your husband. DEAR ABBY: Did you know that some people actually can hardly wait to get the newspaper to read the divorce column. I think I will gag if I hear once more, "Oh, did you see in the newspaper that so and so is divorcing her husband?" A piece of news like that seems to make some busybody's day. Abby, is there any good reason for publishing the names of those who have received divorce decrees? Personally, I think it's an invasion of one's privacy. GAGGING DEAR GAGGING: Laws in every slate require the registration of births, deaths, divorces and marriages. This is for both the public's information and protection. In areas where this "public record" is not too extensive, newspapers publish it as a service to their readers. A public record, mandated by law, can hardly be considered an "invasion of privacy." But if you think it is, why not challenge the law? Hate to write letters?

By ROSE MARY KOOB Tribune St»ff Writer A native of Norway, where she spent her young life, Mrs. Biaine (Belle) Dorse) 1 is now SO. much younger looking than her age. She lives in Evans and friends and neighbors had three birthday parties for her when she reached the 50-year milestone in March. Born March 21, 1887, at Sturdahltn, Norway, she went through the eighth grade there and was confirmed in the Lutheran failh at age 16. As a young lady she went to the city to work for "real high society people," to use her terminology. She was a sort of lady-in-waiting, and attended the theater, concerts with the "lady of the house." She remained six years and learned much. In 1913, she and her widowed mother decided to come to the United States. They first settled in Dovray, Minn., about 200 miles from the twin cities. Later, they moved to Minneapolis to live with her bachelor brother. While there she attended a party with her brother and met her future husband, Marshall Pengra of Buffalo Gap, S.D. Several months later, they were married and farmed at Buffalo Gap for a number of years. They had two daughters, Lillian and Marian, who rode to school on a pony. After the death of her husband in 1933, Mrs. Pengra and daughters came to. Greeley. Mrs. Pengra "took in" college girls to help defray expenses, and later, became a salad cook for the University of Northern Colorado, a job she held for eight years. The older girl, now Mrs. Lillian Goff, attended business college and is working in a bank in Denver where she has been employed for 18 years. The younger daughter,'now Mrs. Donald Belleaudeau, resides in Eunice, La., but for many years lived in Florida when he was an efficial in the . Armed Services. The couple lived in Brazil three years while he was in the service. She is an official with the telephone company in Eunice. Mrs. Pengra remarried in 1944. She and her husband, Elaine Dorsey, traveled to Florida many times while her daughter lived there, seeing attractions all over the x state. This was not the extent of their travels, for they visited relatives from California to Ohio, spending many weeks en tour. In Ohio, they saw a little town named Eaton. Dorsey claimed the people in Eaton, Colo., came from this town in Ohio originally, thus named the town in Colorado Eaton. However, the town actually was named after the pioneer family bearing the name, Eaton. Dorsey, too, was a farmer and he and Belle farmed west of Eaton for 10 years, retiring to Evans in 1955. But he did not enjoy being idle; so he worked part-time on the Anderson farm, one of the first to be extensively irrigated. There he died April 16,1966. Mrs. Dorsey remains in their home in Evans, is agile and active even to the point of watering her own lawn. Her memory is amazing! She recalls living near the sea in Norway. Many times, she and her friends would pile into a Mrs. Blalne Dorsey--active at 90 (Tribune photo by Rose Mary Koob) boat and row on the sea.
