Two divorces catch her in the middle By Abigail Van Buren * 1*74 If CI1CW TriMM-N. f. Htm Sin*., IK. DEAR ABBY: My brother left his wife and five children and got a divorce. My close friend subsequently divorced her husband. It soon came out that my brother and my friend had been seeing each other for a few years before their divorces. They are presently living together and plan to be married soon. I hope they will find the happiness together they lacked in their former marriages, but thare is a problem: I have always been very close to my brother's wife, and I adore the children. My brother says that his ex-wife is no longer a part of ttie family, and that if I want to see his children I should do so when he has them for visitation. Brother says that if his ex-wife is invited to any family gatherings, he and his wife-to-be will not come. I don't want to have to choose whom to invite to my home for a family affair, but I am told that since my brother is closer to me than his ex-wife, he should not have to stay away. During the holidays, I invited everyone and left the decision up to those who wanted to come, but there was side-choosing and ill feelings, so I cancelled the party. My own children are being denied associating with their cousins, and remaining neutral is not easy. Please help. IN THE MIDDLE DEAR IN: Your brother divorced his wife, you didn't, so don't let him dictate whom you shall have in your home. Ask everyone you want, and if Brother doesn't want to come, let him stay away. DEAR ABBY: Several of us have a question to which we have been unable to find an answer. When a married man is invited to be the guest speaker for a women's club [business or social], what about his wife? The affair is usually held in the evening at a motel or hotel beginning with a dinner. What is the speaker's wife supposed to do? Sit home and eat alone while her husband is being fussed over by a bunch of women? I feel that if a club can't afford two meals, they should get their speakers from the membership. Also, what if the meeting is out of town over a weekend? Don't you think Ihe speaker's wife should be invited too? Please set us straight on this. A CLUB DIVIDED DEAR CLUB: It is customary when inviting a speaker to let him know that his wife is welcome, too. If this courtesy is omitted and the speaker wants his wife to be included, he should say so. Weekends? Absolutely—if the budget permits., DEAR ABBY: To the lady who was 30 and recently divorced and wanted to know where to go to meet men. Here's what I did at age 36 and newly divorced: I called around to all the churches [all denominations] and got information on all the religious and social gatherings the churches sponsored for singles in my age group. Then I made a list and took turns visiting all the churches. It look a lot of courage to go to so many strange groups alone, but it paid off because at Ihe Unitarian church i met just the man for me. We have been happily married for 15 years. HAPPY IN HOUSTON DKAK HAPPY: Some people go to church to pray. Others go to pray (hey meet someone. To each his own.

A Lovelier You SHE HAD A LITTLE CURL By Mary Sue Miller To paraphrase an old nursery rhyme: There was a MUlt girl who had ;i little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When it \v;is pond, il w;.s very, very good But when it was bad. it was horrid. How often are your tresses in ;i lion id Six—limp or fu/zy? You've had an end perm and sleep on rollers bill, by evening. you] 1 do looks straight and stringy. More cxas- peialing. the waves and ends kink up. in spite of a straightening and sets aimed at control. Is there a solution to Ihe problem, except a reset on electrically heated rollers? That's the usual tack. But for a quickie, have you tried an electric curling iron -a rod with clamps thai when heated, curls or uncurls lo your oider inMJinler? Lovelies of bygone eras depended on irons heated ovct gas jets, and later on by electricity. Modern technology has updated iions. One type o stick or rod is cordless and thereto]e easy to manipulate in the hair. A little'y controlled heating unit comes with it. the rod's tip is insulated as a safeguard for the unsteady hand. A button releases mist the amount you want. If you are accustomed to setting waves and curls, jus follow the pattern when using a mist slick curler-style iron. To conquer kinks: 1. Isolate an unruly strand 2. Clamp rod at roots of strand and slide to ends, keep ing hair tan! and straight. 3. On reaching ends, roll hni in opposite direction from curl—hold. 4. Unwind slowl; and "pull" kinks out. HOW TO HAVE LOVELIER HAIR llvrr.f.r.ii- ><IHT Inir iTuUm-l S-ii.l fnr mi l»v>klrl. I|U\V 'I I HUT. loVKIIK.K H\ll!.
