Judy Schafenacker, John Baker plan for a Christmas wedding By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: Something in your column sure stirred up a hornet's nest in our family, and bet it did the same in hundreds of others across the country. It wsjs the letter from the married woman who said she had a strong "physical at traction for her husband s brother, and if she didn't get him alone just once she would lose her mind. Well, last evening my hus band's brother and his wife came over for a friendly visit. The first thing the wife said was, "Did you read Dear Abby today.' i said, Yes, wasn t it a gas?" She said, "Yeah, it sure was." Naturally the men had to see it too, so they dragged out the paper, and here was this "confession" from a married woman who had the "hots" for her brother - in - law, who was also married. By the time they left, my sister - in - law w a s barely speaking to me, and if looks could kill, her husband would be dead now. That night when we went to bed my husband acted mad, but he didn't say anything. Will you be kind enough to write and say which town, or at least which state she's from so the rest of the world can sleep in pea - e. Heaven help me if you say "Illinois."

DEAR ABBY: I was always' under, the impression that the bride was supposed to acknowledge the wedding gifts with a personal note, mentioning the gift, etc. Some time ago my niece was married, and since I received an invitation to her wedding I sent what I considered a most generous gift a month of my social security income. There was no acknowledg ment for nearly four months. Then came a printed card bear - apshot of the bridal cou ple with a commercially printed message, "WITK SINCERE AP PRECIATION FOR YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS AND GOOD WISHES." Has this age become so auto mated that a bride sends print ed "appreciation" for her wed ding guts.' If so, 1 would like tc be informed, then I shall know what to do with future wedding invitations. Sign me... QUO VADIS DEAR QUO: The printed "thank you" barely covers the obligation, but is better than no acknowledgment at all. The most gracious "thank you" is written individually. The only exceptions are acknowledg ments which number m the many hundreds or thousands. But Eleanor Roosevelt, the greatest lady of them all, some how managed to acknowledge every gift with a personal note. DEAR ABBY: We are about to marry off our fourth daughter and we are certainly in a bind. We have skimped and saved for the last 15 years to be able to pav the bills for the weddings Gf our tnree older daugnters. we have deprived ourselves of va cations and other luxuries, and now we find that the only way we can give our fourth daughter the same kind of wedding her older sisters had is to mortgage our home. Prices for weddings today are fantastic! Not one of tne grooms parents ever oi - fered to pay a dime toward the expense of the wedding. We think this is unfair. It should be a 50 - 50 deal. Please put this in your column. Maybe it will soak in where it's needed. MOTHER OF DAUGHTERS DEAR MOTHER: Don't count on it. But you have only yourselves to blame if you go broke putting on a wedding that is beyond your means. CONFIDENTIAL TO CHAR LIE: You have 20 - 20 hindsight. Welcome to the club! There is hardly a man alive who couldn't retire comfortably in his old age if he could sell his experience for what rt cost him. Woman professor gets attention PASADENA, Calif.
