He is attending Ottumwa Heights College. The wedding is planned for Aug. 14. IV 7 were way off base in your atr titude about the teen-aged girl who was "hurt" because her creative writing teacher began snubbing her after she wrote a love poem to him. No one knows how many excellent teachers have had their professional careers ruined because they didn't clamp down some starry-eyed girl before her infatuation got out of control. It's too bad that girls such as your correspondent have to be hurt once in a while, but her teacher probably snubbed her in self-defense. MARVIN J. Projects for the coming year were discussed when the Women's Committee of the Farm Bureau met for luncheon Thursday at the Dinner Bell. The kickoff dinner was planned for Feb. 3 at the Mu-nicipal Building in Clear Lake. The International Stu-dent Weekend will be observed the latter part of April. A host family is needed. The weekend involves a community gathering Saturday and attendance at church services for the family and guests Sunday. Another pajama project for the Hospital Ship Hope was announced for June.

Now it's become a matter of principle with me. I don't like to be dictated to. Will you settle this matter? SECOND TIMER DEAR TIMER: I'm with "Wife Number Two" all the way. Get rid of "Number One's" picture. No wallet is big enough for both of them. DEAR ABBY: This is for "Dover waitress" who was so upset because of the small tips people left her: I was a clerk in yard goods and ready-to-wear, back in the days when a clerk really waited on the customers. I dragged many a heavy bolt of yard goods down off the shelves, and I'd put them back up again. In those days my salary was $60 a month for a 50-hour week. I was happy, too. I wonder if that waitress ever tips a clerk when she makes a purchase. BESSIE B. (NOW RETIRED) What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Care of Globe-Gazette, Mason City, Iowa 50401. For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope. DEAR MARVIN: be right. DEAR ABBY: I know I must have many sympathizers on this one. I need some up-to-date advice on how to look feminine and glamorous at the office without letting men think I am on the make. If I dress attractively, in bright colors or in the latest styles, all the old creeps (never the nice eligible men) make passes at me. If I dress to repel the old creeps, I creep further into old-maid-hood. I am 30. Can you help me? CONFUSED DEAR CONF.USED: "Nice, eligible men" never make passes at anyone. A guide to appropriate office attire would include a long list of don'ts: Don't strive for "glamor" in the office. Femininity, yes. Glamor, no! Don't wear skirts too short. Or low necklines. Don't wear, anything skin tight. See-through blouses are a "no no." Leave the junk jewelry at home. Don't wear cocktail-type attire to work. Pants are fine if your office permits them, but only if they are well-tailored and have a matching jacket. "Lounging pajamas," jump-suits or jeans with any old top are inappropriate. If you follow the above suggestions, and the old creeps still make passes at you, better check the look in your eye. GAIL MARIA METCALF Diann Thomas bride W. Metcalf, 616 S. Tennessee. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. DEAR ABBY: I still carry my first wife's picture in my billfold even though there is absolutely nothing left between us. This seems to be quite an issue with my second wife to whom I've been married for one year. My second wife gave me a picture of herself, but when I put it in with the "other" picture, she took it back. I assured her that she has no reason to feel hurt as I couldn't care less for my first wife, but that doesn't seem to satisfy her.

It's new Teeny tiny computer By Newsweek Feature Service A computer smaller than a desk phone has been developed by Bunker-Ramo Corp. of Los Angeles. Described as the smallest computer ever put into commercial production, the BR-1018 weighs Ah'-y pounds but has a memory capacity of 72,000 information bits and can do computations in milliseconds. The small size of the computer was made possible by a new technique for packaging- integrated circuits and components into wafers which plug into each other without wiring. The components can be rapidly and inexpensively produced and quickly replaced when faulty. Bunker-Ramo believes the computer has a bright future in airplanes, machine shops and as a portable, take-to-the-job computer in industrial complexes. Initially, the minicomputer will cost $30,000, but with volume production Bunker-Ramo hopes to get the price down to $5,000. 401-9th S.E. 11 Etst 4 no I I I I -Crwctrrt I Etietrie Dial 423-7042 Mason City, Iowa Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays Featuring fashionable THOMAS Lighting Industries
