This week's guest reviewer is Sue Benson, a Fergus Falls Junior High School student. No Language, But a Cry is a fascinating book about a doctor who decides to help a girl who is mute. The girl, Laura, tortured as an infant, sat in silence for 12 years, scarred, bruised, and emotionally disturbed. It is also a story of two nuns and a lady who helped and prayed for her to come out of her fantasy world to real life. This is a book for young and old, rich and poor, who will all be deeply moved by it. It is a story of emotionally disturbed children who could be helped but aren't In this story my favorite person was Sister Margaret. She was the mastermind of the institution. Never turning down anything named "impossible"; for her there was no such word in our language! In her habit hurrying down the halls to do something else to help, she was nicknamed "Quarterback". She had the will power and skill to do anything including getting Laura's operations free, and skill to do anything including getting Laura through nursing school which Laura wanted terribly. The author of this book once said, "Heaven help the stock market if ever Sister Margaret moves into it!". Wo/fzer-K/rkvo/d vows spoken Laura's father, who was just discharged from the state hospital, came to see Laura and promised to call and come back, which he didn't do. Laura got very depressed by this and started fighting with everybody around her and skipped school constantly. Finally she broke through the hatred and became even more kind and gentle to those around her, hating her hatred. To do this was a great mental and physical strain and took much courage. To me the best part was the very end when Laura came walking down the hall in a white nurse's uniform. Less than four years before, she struggled down the same hall leaning heavily against the wall. The doctor could hardly believe his eyes becuase he thought of the first time he saw her. One thing I learned is never to think anything is impossible because as Sister Margaret said, "The difficult things take time, but the impossible we do immediately!" Laura was supposed to be "impossible", but she is now everything she wanted to be. So nothing can be that "impossible!"

DEAR ABBY: I have been living common law with a man for 12 years. He pays all the bills and we are just like man and wife. Our kids call him "Daddy" (we have eight). I just found out by accident that he is also "Daddy" to seven other kids, and has been living common-law with another woman 90 miles from here. For years he has left here on Monday morning and come home on Thursday evening. If I can prove that he spends more time with me than he spends with the other woman, is he my common-law husband, or is he hers? Can a common- law husband be a bigamist? And where would it leave me if he fell over dead? Thank you. CONFUSED DEAR CONFUSED: It would leave you with a lot of questions that only a lawyer could answer. Why don't you see one now? It's a lot easier to get information out of a live common-law husband than a dead one. DEAR ABBY: Debbie and I graduated from college 13 years ago. We were sorority sisters and close friends. I got married first and invited Debbie. She couldn't come, but she sent me a wedding gift. (She lived in San Francisco and 1 lived in Chicago.) Two years later 1 got an invitation to Debbie's wedding, and J am ashamed to say I didn't even acknowledge it. I kept meaning to send her a present but I never did. Debbie mai.ifed a fellow who didn't have anything, but since that time I heard he has made a fantastic success in business. My husband and I are moving to Oakland, which is just across the bridge from'San Francisco, and I want to renew my friendship with Debbie, but 1 don't know how to go about it. Should I send her a wedding present with a card: "Hi! Better late than never," and then follow it up with a letter saying we are moving to Oakland and I'd like to get together? GOOFED DEAR GOOFED:No. Debbie might suspect that your sudden interest in renewing the friendship ie in some way connected with her husband's "fantastic success." (Is it?) PnMems?

A Lovelier You RECIPE FOR COOL DRESSING By Mary Sue Miller Do you lose your cool when it's hot? If so, this column is for you. There are numerous ways to beat the heat, other than starting the day with a tepid shower. Freshly laundered lingerie underscores that daisy-fresh feeling. The idea naturally carries over to topside dressing. What exactly should you wear? For the sake of comfort on urban streets, do avoid scanty attire. Tests show that coverup clothing in lightweight, light-colored, absorbent materials, acts like a thermostat to regulate the body's own cooling system. It follows that a pale, sheer, easy-fit cotton dress has it coolth built in. Heat is further controlled when you shade your head with an airy straw hat; when you coddle your feet in ventilated, leather-soled shoes. Here fashion plays into your hands with charming voiles, tropical straws and pastel kids. For the reason that any sort of fussiness makes heat waves, do simplify your jewelry, your hairdo and your makeup. Why. you'll breeze through the day like a desert nomad in loose whites. Think cool, too-refuse to be hurried or flustered - and you will appear an oasis to all eyes. What a welcome sight and what an easer for boggled minds!
