Son Risks Marriage To His Half-Sister Son Risks Marriage DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have a 24-year-old son who is engaged to the girl next door. We have lived as neighbors to these people for over 20 years and have always been very friendly. My problem is known only to the lady next door. You see, I am the father of her daughter, which puts my son in the position of marrying his half sister. The lady next door refuses to tell her daughter, and insists it is my place to tell our son. If I do, he will tell his mother, who is sure to raise cain, altho she herself, has left the trail a couple of times that I know of early in our marriage. Hurry your advice, as time is running out. STUMPED DEAR STUMPED: Tell your wife and be prepared for whatever follows. She might solve your problem by telling you that the boy Is not YOUR son. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for a year and a half and I guess before another six months I will be pregnant. Not because I want a baby, But I am made to feel that It is my "duty" - and to keep putting it off just shows my "selfishness." . All I hear from my friends and relatives is, "Aren't you pregnant yet?" And my mother-in-law acts like I have been married and- childless for 20 years. Abby, the plain truth is that I am not ready to have a baby. Is it so awful to me to enjoy my freedom/To be perfectly honest about it, I would like to wait about 5 years before having my family. Once a baby comes, you are tied down arid your life is never the same. Oh, I know there are many blessings, but there are lots of worries and headaches, and I am in no hurry for them. Some of our friends, who have had families right away seem so tired arid irritable, and they don't get along with each other as well as they used to. What do you think? . . NOT READY PEAR NOT: Don't worry about what others say. Yon have to answer only to your husband and your own conscience. Until and unless your at- titudes change, and you can think of good reasons for wanting a child, remain childless. If yon have a baby because you fear critic- Ism, I feel sorry for the child. DEAR ABBY: That letter from George the bus driver caught my eye because I am 75 Years Ago —• In Blytheville Methodist women of the North Arkansas Conference will open a three-day meeting tomorrow at the First Methodist Church here with Mrs. Johnnie McClure of Springdale presiding. J. Graham Sudbury, son of Judge and Mrs. Graham Sudbury, has been named managing editor of the 1953 - 54 Traveler, the University of Arkansas student newspaper.

Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Brown and Mr. and Mrs. James Nebhut were hosts to members of the Variety Club for their monthly dinner dance at the Jaycee Building on Saturday evening. also a bus driver. And to add to the coincidence, my name is also George. Where are all those lovely flirtatious ladies who like to get the seat directly behind the bus driver so they can whisper sweet things in his ear, press their telephone numbers into his palm, and coquettishly blow on his neck? I've been a bus driver for 8 years and I. have never had that kind of luck. Our uniforms are good looking and I wear mine with pride. But it seems that the person who invariably occupies the seat directly behind me is one who has just . consumed a hearty meal, well . seasoned with garlic, washed down with cheap wine. Could I be driving in the wrong city? GEORGE IN BOSTON CONFIDENTIAL TO BETSEY: I wouldn't wait too long for a 34-year-old fellow whose mother still waits up for him. Everybody has a problem.

I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN AlMSTA PIAYW6 W THE MASTERS &H.F HOd) OM WO'K£ NOT PLAVIM6 IN THE FINAL ROUNP? WELL, I RAW INTO THIS CUTE UTTIE GEORGIA &EA6LE, Poltng on Religon [David Poltaj The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. puts the whole American dream on the line. This democracy is poised to move in one of two directions: Will it be into a swirling war between the races, with wild militancies from each extreme burning and bombing. Or will it be "The Dream" of Martin Luther King, that White and black can fashion a creative society through love, understanding and justice? Martin Luther King was most truly an American. He represented the vital traditions of the stirring founders of the Republic. He sought change and improvement" by the processes guaranteed in the rights of free men. King perfectly understood the meaning of dissent, protest and persuasion — all part of the dynamic processes of a free country. William Stringfellow summed up this mood for himself — and for Dr. King — when he said: "I am grateful for every movement of protest which has a serious purpose ... The only way the right of dissent can be maintained in the American democracy in IN ITS EXERCISE. If a distinct minority in the colonies had not dissented, there would be no American democracy for a majority of the colonists opposed the Revolution." King and his followers never buckled in the face of the threats and taunts of their more radical brethren. Dr. King knew as everyone, white or black should know, that neither the gasoline can nor the troops can insure or inspire American democracy. It's going to come from the heart. I think that the greatest disappointment to Dr. King was the failure of the whites in the Christian churches. True, he had vast support of college and university leaders. Thousands # white clergymen backed him up when the March on Washington developed in 1963 — and many were already committed to the Poor People's March slated for this month. But King knew, just as the white preachers undwstar.J, that no real advance is going to tappn to rao* relation* la -by david poling- the United States until the businessmen, professional groups, bankers and industrialists — all • morning in the pews — really those who show up Sunday pledge themselves to the goals - by williqm Iqwrence, d.d.s. - Liwrence Mr. Gard complained: My front tooth is loose and sore to touch. When I press the gum over the root it hurts. I have a bad taste in my mouth and it seems ta cbitie from that tooth. Exam: Upper right front incisor tooth was indeed mobile, was slightly enlqgated and surrounding gum tissue was i n- flamed, swollen and exuded plus on pressure. There were deep pockets between-gum and tooth indicating much bone loss. ..X - ray exam: Tooth previously had root canal therapy. There was marked bone loss, specially between the two incisors At the root end there was a large abscess which communicated with the periodontal (pyorrhea) pocket. ..Diagnosis: Periodontal abscess. ..Treatment: There was so much bone loss and such a large infected area that the tooth had to be extracted. For cosmetic reasons a replacement was made at once. The infected root was cut from the crown which was then hollowed out, filled with white plastic material and attached to a plastic base adjusted to fit' against the palatal are 'just behind the space where the teeth was extracted. Mr. Card left the dentist's office in about an hour wearing his newtold temporary tooth. In about a week or two when the gum heals, the missing tooth will be replaced with a permanent, fixed bridge which will be attached to teeth on either side of the space. The base of the bridge will be made of gold with porcelain baked into the surfaces that show. The porcelain wil! be tinted, stained and shaped ta resemble natural teeth.' During the time Mr. Card's bridge i; in the making,' his teeth will be protected with a temporary fixed bridge made of plaatic which will also be contoured and colored to resemble natural teeth. This will be held in place with temporary cement so that it can be easily removed when the permanent bridge is ready for cementation. Mr. G a r d' s dentist reports that his patient won't have to miss any time from his office or give up any of his social obligations. Please send your questions «• bout dental health to Dr. Lawrence in car* of thle piper. While he cannot answer each letter personally, letters ol general interest will be aaweril' to tkiiMluou. _ and aspirations of the Negro minority. I suppose we could list some scrapegoats of this tragic murder of a great American. Tha Memphis situation should have been settled long ago by jusl consideration for the garbage workers. Vietnam surely is * massive culprit in the American dream, taking young men, draining the economy, dividing families and friendships. It hal left us partially paralyzed t« deal with the urgent needs of the domestic community. Some will blame the George Wallaces or the Rap Browns. They surely have contributed to the venom that surges through the veins of this body politic, but.they really are only spokesmen for the silent undercurrent. Sure, blame them all. But the Church should be honest enough to acknowledge its failure. King was right when he said: "The judgment of God is up r oh the church as never before. If today's church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions and be dismissed as an irrelevent social club with ho meaning for the 20th century."
