With the end of the football season approaching, thousands of young players wih be realeas- ed from the rigors of training. Too sudden a cessation of a program of virgorous exercise is just as bad as paiticipating in such exercise without a gradual buildup. The latter may injure the muscles and joints, the former will cause the heart muscle to he- come flabby. Another result of an abrupt cessation of training is that the boy who has become accustomed to a diet that is high in calories is likely to eat more than his reduced activity d e- mands. He wDl thereby accumulate unwanted fat that may be hard to get rid of.

Q—My grandson, 7, has osteo­ genesis imperfecta and the doctor says that nothing can be done for it. Wliat caused it and is there any cure?

POLLY'S POINTERS 'Who Showers First?' Husband Or Wives DEAR ABBY . . . Teens Con Earn Their Privileges Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am nearly 17, a senior in high school and a straight "A" student. I went to a drive-in movie with the same boy three Saturday nights in a row. Each time I was home at the time my parents set for me —12:30. After the third date they calmly told me I couldn't go to the drive-in with this boy any more. Their only reason was they thought I might do something I might regret. When they told me this I cried all night. In the past you have always told kids if they listened to their parents and obeyed their rules, trust would come. Well, I've been doing it for nearly 17 years and you can see where it go to me. Don't you think my parents ai-e being unreasonable? NOT TRUSTED DEAR NOT: Yes, but worse yet they are being unrealistic. Were you bent on doing something you might regret, denying you permis.sion to go to a drive- in movie with a boy wouldn't stop you. Teen-agers who have demonstrated good judgment, integrity, and respect for their parents' rules should be rewarded by being given added privileges. They've earned it. In the mean- tune, do as you are told, and I think eventually your parents might see the error in their decision. DEAR ABBY: My mother-in- law asked my husband to give her the money he was going to spend on my b'iithday present and "together" they bougtnt me something SHE picked out. A fire engine red wool coat with a low belt all the way 'round. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall and weight 155. She has excellent taste when it comes to selecting her own clothes. What would you say happened in this case, and how would you handle it? BOILING OVER DEAR BOILING: There are two possibilities. She either did it on purpose or she didn't. But regardless, I would handle it very carefully while placing it in its original box to return it. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have no automobile. Most of our friends do. When we go out for an evening of pleasure and they park the car in a pay parking lot, is it our pai-t of the evenmg's partieipationg to pay for at least one-half of the parking expense? PUZZLED DEAR PUZZLED: There is no "law" or rule covering situations such as this one. Abide by the "Three C's:" Common sense, consideration and courtesy. If you believe the other couple to be on a limited budget, and you can gracefully pay for the parking, I'd say pay for ALL of it in return for the chauffeur service. CONFIDENTIAL TO "FASHION-CONSCIOUS": A lady's dress should be like a stamped barbed wire fence. It should protect the property without obscuring the view. How has the world been treating you?

DEAR POLLY - Several of my friends and I have the same problem which we call, "Who goes first?" Our husbands take us out once a week. None of us have more than one bathroom as we live in small homes. The husbands all persist in taking their showers first but we say the wives should go first because they have so much more to do to get ready and it is no wonder they complain about us taking so long. We think we are riglit. What do the otlier girls think? -MRS. A.E.H. DEAR MRS. A.E.H. and friends —We will let the other girls settle the question of the order of taking showers, but I have a strong feeling tliat a lot of them are going to think how lucky you all are that your husbands take you out once a week. -POLLY DEAR POLLY—Do tell Eddie, that using mayonnaise will bring out the sheen in the hair. Just rub it in before you shampoo. not too much but just enough to go through the hair. This will reaUy make it shine.—PAM DEAR GIRLS—I was advised that this is now a very popular method. Some girls who have their hair "done" by a hairdresser rub the mayonnaise in just before leaving home and then it is ready to be washed out. -POLLY } DEAR POLLY-Daily brushing of the hair, morning and night, with a clean brush will ; keep it clean, healthy, soft and • lustrous.—GEORGIA DEAR POLLY-Not only do I ; use steam for freshening flower hats (a former Pointer) but I also use it for felt hats. I pack the hat tightly with tissue paper to retain its shape and, while carefully holding it over a steaming kettle, I brush as I go along. This cleans and revives the hat fabric—R.K.
