The plane has been sub- ering off. What do you think should jected to everything from mud sling- be done? "/ think it's disgraceful. I'm not sure of the solution. I don't want the plane fenced off because little children like to play on it but that looks like the only way out." — Mrs. Roy Thomas, 822 Robindale Rd. "/ don't think it's right that the kids should be allowed to climb on it. A fence or something should be put up. Every- time I pass by kids are climbing all over it," — Buddy Honey, 385 Summit Drive. "/ don'f see why it't happening. I think maybe a fence around it would put an end to it."— Herman Joseph, 1129 S. Clark. Worcfs of Wisdom. For Brides-to-Be DEAR ABBY: Since the wedding season is upon us once again, I would like to address a plea to all parents who plan big, showy weddings for their daughters: The bride, who is the star of the show, asks several of her friends to be "attendants". And since they are usually lifelong friends, they can't easily refuse. My daughter is a serious student and is making her own way thru school. She now has FIVE useless bridesmaids' gowns hanging in her closet. The average about $30 each. She had no choice as to color or style, and no matter what the saleslady says, not one of these dresses is suitable to be worn later on. Abby, since these big, flashy weddings are put on by the bride's parents as a "show" for their friends and relatives, don't you think it's only fair that the bride's parents should pay ALL the expenses — including the gowns? MOTHER OF A BRIDESMAID DEAR MOTHER: Few parents can afford to buy gowns for the entire wedding party, so whether a girl can stand the financial strain of being a bridesmaid once — or five times, is up to the girl to decide. Mo»t "lifelong friends" who are invited to be attendants somehow manage to accept, expense and all. And I doubt if many have ever regretted It. DEAR ABBY: This may seem like a silly problem to you, but it is a very serious one to me. , I like this boy very much, but every time I kiss him I get a bad headache. This is very unusual for me (getting a headache, I mean, not kissing a boy) and I wonder if maybe it could be a sign that we are not meant for each other?. Thank you. "HEADACHE" DEAR "HEADACHE": I'm not qualified to analyze headaches, but any girl who deliberately asks for one ought to have her head examined. 1 DEAR ABBY: I am a mature 19-year-old working girl with a 45-year-old 15 Years Age —In Blytheyille Mr. and Mrs. Connie Moding- er, Mr. and Mrs. A.

He won't leave me alone It all started last summer when I went to my girl friend's house and she wasn't home. Her father was there, feeling very lonely and depressed. (He's in the process of getting, a divorce.) I sat down and we had a frank and honest discussion, in which I gave him my views on life as seen from the younger generation. After that, I saw him occasionally with my girl friend, and then he told me he was very much attracted to me and wanted to see me alone. I didn't know what to do, so I just steered clear of him. Then he started calling me, and writing me letters saying he was,"in love" with me, and had to see me. So far I have discouraged him, but he is persistent.' I don't want to hurt him, but I don't want to be Involved with,him either. Must I tell him bluntly that if he doesn't leave me alone I will tell my parents? Also I hate to risk losing his daughter's friend- ship. What do you advlseT GENERATION GAP DEAR GAP: Tell HIM that if he calls, writes or approaches you again, you will tell your parents. I doubt if he will. But if he does, go ahead and make good your threat. TOD BI TTBEViLUI COUBIBB NEWS THE COUB1ES NEWS CO. C w. HAINES. PUBLISH™ HARRY A.

Poling on Religon David Poling By DAVID POLING BEIRUT, Lebanon (NBA) The pleasant port city of Beirut has not yet recovered from the shock of last June's Arab- Israeli war. The Israeli victory shattered the pride and political arguments that had been so carefully cultivated in the Arab States and even Lebanon, whose population is almost evenly divided between Christian and Moslem, continues to suffer. Many Arab leaders in Lebanon believe that the situation in the Holy Land will not find even tentative agreement until war in Vietnam is concluded. The riots in American cities following the death of Martin Luther King brought further despair to this Arab capital: Will the internal upheavals that now mark the urban scene further delay the interest and involvement of the United States in the Middle East? It is fair to say that those are the unanswered questions that affect not only Israel but 100 million Arabs. And it is not Britain or France or Russia which are going to provide the conditions for lasting settlement in this historic anguish center of world history. Christians and Moslems alike look to Washington. cbanon has suffered serious side effects from the June 5 War, as it is called. Travel is not possible between Israel and Lebanon. This means tourism is in a drastic decline and this vital young nation, with friends in East and West, has lost almost half of its annual income that usually comes from tourists. Hotels are more than half empty. One sees many high-rise hotels and apartments unfinished. Lebanon is in a pensive, perplexed mood^ Yet of all the Arab states, she has the resilience and brain power to sort out the alternatives and develop new policies for the good life that is coming. I was particularly Impressed, and American Christians have good reason to be proud, with the leadership of the American University ef Beirut, Now in its 101st year, this sprawling university serves more than 4,000 students on the shores of th« Mediterranean. From every Arab state and more thar. 80 other nations these buildings and playing fields contain the dynamic leaders that will act ID tcoorrow'i «|enda. ID r*> - by david poling - ligion, they seemed to be committed to the ecumenical movement. In politics and economics they want to raise up the lost and forgotten, the refugee and the recluse. In arts and science, they want to be part of the- "cool generation," The university faculty has first-rate professors, with such pepple as Dr. Hugh Harcourt of Portland, Ore., and Dr. David Byers, who left Yale after eigiit years to become their new dean of the Chapel. Re- l J^realtn, -by williarn lawrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: ! am interested in having six or more teeth capped. I would appreciate your giving me the name of a dentist in the Pittsburgh area who specializes in this work." — Mrs. R. G. ANSWER: Readers from all over the United States and Canada frequently write to ask for specific recommendations such as this, and obviously it's some thing I cannot provide. But you are wise to seek the services of a dentist with special interest and knowledge in this type of dentistry, generally called oral rehabilitation. Multiple capping is a delicate and complicated work, and rarely is it an isolated dental procedure. Other teeth and, in fact, the entire dental mechanism are usually involved and must be considered in the treatment plan. And you're in luck, too. You have excellent choices. Pittsburgh has a first-rate dental school (University of Pittsburgh Dental School), and there are many fine dental specialists practicing in the city and environs. Perhaps your own dentist "Ltekt u thwgh tebbf'i falling «u( ell tint ttopt-b does oral rehabilitation. If not, ask him to recommend someone who does. Or you might inquire at the dental school. Surely they would recommend a few specialists. DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: "My daughter is four years old. When she was two she fell and broke her two front teeth. The dentist removed the nerve and saved the teeth, but they became dark. When the time comes, will these dead teeth naturally make way for the permanent ones? Or will they have to be pulled?" Mrs. M. G., Utica, N. Y. ANSWER: Unless the permanent tooth buds under the •rok- en baby teeth were damaged at the time of the accident, the permanent teeth should erupt normally. If your child was slow getting her bfiby teeth she may also be late with her permanent .ones. But, in any case, if a number of months after normal eruption date of six years has passed, you should see your dentist for advice. Prolonged retention of baby teeth can cause difficulties with eruption ef permanent ones. X rays can be taken to vist ualize the position of the permanent teeth in the gums, but usually a clinical exam is sufficient to make an evaluation. Dentists don't like to e x p o s e children to X rays and do so only when absolutely necessary. Please send your questions about d«nt»l hM|lth to Dr. Lawrence in wire of this piper. While hf cannot answer each leltor personally, letters of general interest will b«. answered in toil *»lum cently, Dr. Elie A. Salem, assistant dean of the faculty, led student discussions by insisting that a whole new viewpoint he considered: "We have, at times, maintained that Israel did not exist. This ostrichlike attitude of ours succeeded in keeping us uninformed about events and developments inside Israel ... We also looked at Israel as a gangster-band, an accomplice of great powers, and we cursed them! ... We have led the world to' believe that we are going to'eliminate the State of Isarel by force. This is a most unfortunate foreign policy. It not only contradicts facts but it also renders Arab diplomacy ineffective." Beirut is the center of much that passes from.East to West - intellectually and spiritually i . As I see it, the relationship between Christians Of varied historic and decominational loyalty is improving and enlarging. Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox are in constant and increasing co-operation. Moslems and Christians share forums and dialogue groups around the country. It just'may be that the religious community will effect a whole new society that has so often eluded the political arrangements of the past. Salem should have the last Word on the troubles of this lovely country, and its unpredictable neighbors: "It is one of the ironies of history that a people like ,the Arabs, who have a just cause, are too excited, too stunned or too incoherent to make it known to the rest of the world. Th« .Arabs must gain the world's support, particularly the support of the great powers who count in t.:e lormation .of Middle Eastern politics. To do so, 'the Arabs must produce a positive plan that will accommodate the Jews in the Arab world." . Blytbevllla (Ark.) Courier News Page 4 ' Saturday, May 4, 1963
