Clubs & Societies Underwood AA and Al-Anon will meet Monday at 8 p.m. at Sverdrup Lutheran Church basement. ByLeANNKUNTZ Jounul Family Editor Fergus Fails is very comfortable to live in, but : it is easy to lose contact here with the burning social reform that our country needs, says the Rev. William (Barney) Kitchen who has been co- pastor with the Rev. William Van Dyken for three years at the Federated Church in Fergus Falls. He and his wife, Connie, and son, Ben, will be leaving for Dover, Del., on Aug. 26 where he will accept a call in the United Church of Christ at the People's Church of Dover. "I've got to keep myself in touch," says Barney referring to social reform. His concept of the ministry consists of three basic principles. One, a minister must know how to cope with opposites such as hope and despair, or love and hate. Two, he must be aware of the breakdowns in communication in people's daily lives. Having spent a great deal of time studying the human potential movement which is stressing mans' strengths instead of weaknesses, he says, "If a person .can realize his strengths, he can communicate better because he is more secure." Another part of the ministry that he believes is important is helping a church develop a mission or reason for existence. By giving people more opportunities to intersect than just on Sundays they can grow, he says. "By bringing people in contact with each other they can find out more than just data and facts about each other — then they can build relationships that are significant," he adds. According to Barney some ministers spend too much time emphasizing the world to come. "God gave his son for the sake of the world. The one right now. Our obligation is to minister to the needs of the world of the present," he says. And that need includes politics according to Barney, who is an active DFLer. He believes a church is responsible for holding all institutions accountable to human values. A church should be an open forum for discussing and becoming educated about government activities, says Barney. He adds, "If religion has no place in the political world, then religion isn't concerned with the things that make a difference. It must be." Looking forward to his new calling, Barney Rev. Wfffiam | Barney) Kttcfeen will try to help create a learning experience where people can relate and communicate with each other which is his goal anywhere. He will probably be on few boards-of-directors, like here, because he says he would much rather be associated with the powerless and help them than to put himself up somewhere with the powerful. He first contemplated the ministry when he became aware of the pain in the world while he was fulfilling his military obligation. He decided he wanted to help out so he attended the Chicago Theological Seminary to become a minister. Barney, 31, was raised in Kansas City, Mo., and attended the University of Kansas.

ENGAGED West Otter Tips 'N' Tales By ANGELAPAUKERT (West Otter Tail Extension Home Economist) ENGAGED Follow up on offers to the widow By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am a 44-ysar-old widow with three children—two teen-aged boys aid a daughter, 12. My husband died last year afer a lingering illness that nearly put us in the poorhouse. I am not destitute, but I have to be a. very good manager to make ends meet. ' My problem: At his funeral, friends and family hovered around me, expressing their sincere sympathy, and the last thing I heard from ALL of them was: "If you need anything, please call me." Abby, I need EVERYTHING! I need someone to take an interest in two teen-aged boys who have no father. I need someone to cheer me up when I'm feeling low. I need someone to dress up for. I need someone to get me out of the house and invite me to a movie, a bridge game, a play, a concert, or an evening of conversation so I will know I'm alive. A widow needs everything any other normal woman needs, but she can't call up her friends and ask them for anything. Please print this, Abby. Maybe someone who has made this offer to some widow somewhere will see it and pick up the phone and ask her what she needs. Thanks for listening. YOUR FRIEND THE WIDOW DEAR FRIEND: Consider it done. If this awakens some of your sleeping friends, let me know. DEAR ABBY: I hate showers! I am 27 years old, and didn't use to feel this way, but enough is enough. Lately I have been invited to showers for girls I hardly know, some of whom I haven't seen since 1 got out of high school. Opening presents in front of everyone' to publicize how "generous" (or "cheap") the doners are rubs me the wrong way. ' I was married (two years ago) and refused when my friends offered to have a shower for me. I had a planned elopement and didn't soak one person for a present. I have been told that if you're invited to a shower, you must send a gift whether you come or not. How does one courteously reply to a nervy shower invitation for someone she hasn't seen in nine years? Please answer in your column, Abby. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. SICK OF SHOWERS DEAR SICK: There is no "law" which compels you to send a gift if you decline a shower invitation. Simply decline, and don't feel obligated to give a present to someone you "hardly know" or haven't seen in nine years. DEAR ABBY: 1 am 22, single and fairly attractive. I don't have to elaborate on how difficult it is for a young lady to find a respectable, intelligent, employed, single man these days. The problem is, I seem to have found one, but he is seeing another girl. He has dated me a few times, but 1 feel so guilty about the other girl. Abby, I don't want to be the cause of their breaking up. Should I continue to see him? Or should I drop the whole thing before it gets started? LOST DEAR LOST: If he wants to break off with tbe other gill, theirs couldn't b* much of a love match. Since you didn't deliberately set out to lure him away, there is no reason to feel guilty. If you wait for a man who is not s«ing anyone, you could wait a long time. CONFIDENTIAL TO "SICK OF ALL THAT SEX IN YOUR COLUMN": Sorry, but lately, every other letter that lands on my desk has to do with MX. I invite people to write to me about their problems, and these art their problems. Problems? You'll feel btlter if you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. For Abby's new booklet, "What T«*n-agers Want to Know," send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Cal. 90121. REBECCA ELUNGSON and MICHAEL SOLIEN Mr. and Mrs. R. M. EUingson, Doran, announce the engagement of their daughter, Rebecca Ellen to Michael S. Solien, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Solien, Breckenridge. Miss EUingson, a graduate of N.D. State School of Science, is employed at Dakota National Bank and Trust Company, Fargo. Solien is employed at Northwestern Bell and will attend Moorhead State College this fall. An Aug. 31 wedding is planned. If you're a parent, you're a teacher as well. And, as a parent-teacher, you can help guide your child's development through meaningful play activities. Play is not a waste of time or a method of keeping little children out of mischief or out of your way while you attend to your work. Instead, play is an essential to the development of a normal, well- adjusted personality. It provides the child with opportunities to develop physically, socially, emotionally and morally in a way that no other single type of activity can. Play, then, is the business of children. . Recycle items already in the home in making practical, worthwhile play equipment. For example, old magazines can provide some good learning activities for your young child. "Opposite" cards will help your child develop an understanding of things that are opposite. To make "opposite" cards, cut out pictures of objects that are opposite — such as hot fire and cold ice cream, and paste them on index cards. Also objects that are hard-soft, narrow-wide, high-low, sweet- sour, etc. Mix up the cards and let your child match the opposites. "Completion" cards can be made and played the same way. On one card, put a picture of an object. On a second card, put a picture needed to com- plete the first picture. For example, you have a picture of a car, so you'll need a picture of a street to complete the idea. Or, for a picture of a vacuum cleaner, you need a carpet. We see these as learning activities for children, but they probably will think they're fun. Recycle other items in the home too. Try creating with wood scraps, tin cans, cardboard boxes, fabric scraps, spools and others. Something to think about: Parents are children's first teachers. Later the school provides teachers. Here are some amazing statistics about another "teacher." The average child attends school for 980 hours a year, and watches TV 1,340 hours. By the time he graduates from high school, he will have spent roughly 11,000 hours in school and 22,000 hours in front of the TV! Personal and Social Mrs. James J.

REUNIONS A Lovelier You UNDERSHAPERS WITH CONTROL The Bodell Anderson annual reunion was held the last weekend of July at the Faith Haven Youth Ixxlge, Battle Lake. Relatives attending who were not from the immediate area included Mr. and Mrs. Luther Anderson, Westfield, New Jersey, Mr. and Mrs. Stan Anderson, Omaha, Neb., and the Rev. and Mrs. W. F. Anderson, Wyndmere, N.D., and their families. Those attending from the Minneapolis area were the Dan and Bruce Anderson families By Mary Sue Milter At this point in time, the next most important thing to a chapeau for your head is a shaper for your hips. Or vice versa, depending on hip requirements. Those new skirts with full- full-fullness add their own width to yours. That's where under- shapers come .to the rescue. From bras to bodysuits to girdles, both long and short, designing aims for natural effects through minimum construction. Materials are more than ever malleable, like the Victorian strips of stretch lace. Seams are hidden or eliminated. Additions such as lacy, stretch straps further carry the theme — pure flattery, pure control for the figure. And there's more. Undershapers in the form of the slip, petticoat and teddy support dress and suit silhouettes. New again, longer slips are luxe in satin de Lys, Crepeset, Antron with Calais lace and hand-cut appliques. But a prime feature of all underpinnings is color. An amber shade complements fashion's earthy tones. Crushed rose and heather keep company with deep purples and vintage hues. Try Wedgewood blue with navy; honeydew under fir green; poppy prints under black; black under blackground prints. Lacy trims match or contrast with the fabric color. Contrasts-ecru lace trimming black -have delightful eye appeal. Like delightful undershaping. YOUR GROOMING-A TO Z Put aaide your grooming doubts and worries!
