Parents heartbroken over her choice of amputee By Abigail Van Buren 1973 By cniUM Tribune-N. Y. News Inc. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is 28 and a nurse. She took a job several thousand miles from home and has been gone nearly a year. We were hoping she'd come home last Christmas, but she said she'd come home next summer and bring her fiance. had written about a young man she'd fallen in love with, describing his "beautiful attitudes, brilliant mind, and outstanding character." Now we know why she didn't bring him home for Christmas. He's an amputee! He lost both legs just below the knee when he stepped on a mine near Saigon. We learned this yesterday from a letter she wrote us. We are heartsick. She's such a beautiful girl and could easily get a whole man. Abby, how do parents adjust to knowing their daughter will spend the rest of her life caring for an invalid? HEARTBROKEN PARENTS DEAR PARENTS: What makes you think he's an invalid? You would be amazed how well some people can manage on artificial limbs: There is no reason to be heartbroken. If he's "whole" enough for her it says a great deal for her values. Theirs could be a completely beautiful and fulfilling marriage. DEAR ABBY: You defined a homosexual as "one who has erotic feelings about members of his own sex." It is my understanding that heterosexuals sometimes have erotic feelings about members of their own sex. Am I mistaken? 'And by the way, do you think homosexuals are CURIOUS IN N. Y. DEAR CURIOUS: You are correct. In my anxiousness to conserve space I oversimplified. I should have said, "individuals who have STRONG, PREFERENTIAL erotic feelings about'members of their own sex can be considered homosexual." And I hiosf consider homosexuals DEAR ABBY: Only my mother knows my real age because I've been lying about it for several years. I am en' gaged to an angel of a man who attributes the smoothness of our relationship to our complete honesty. Altho I've never lied to my fiance about anything else, I've repeated that lie about my age dozens of times in his presence, with friends, applying for graduate school, credit cards, etc. What I want your advice on is this: Must my fiance ever know my real age? It would be so embarrassing to tell him now. He thinks he's two years older than me, when actually he is two months younger. OLDER WOMAN DEAR WOMAN: Tell him and tell him now. Not only for your own peace of mind but in anticipation of the day you'll be eligible for Social Security. what a tangled Web we weave when first we practice to CONFIDENTIAL TOi Those who are interested in reading a delightful little book with a big message about the purpose of life--beg, buy or borrow "Celebrate the Sun" by James Kavanaugh.

Affirms Local Suits Two judgements involving long drawn-out trials of suits in Robeson County Superior Court have been affirmed by the N.C. Court of Appeals. These involve the disputes that have existed over contracts for solid waste disposal in the county in which a franchise was granted Sanitation Services, but other individual contracts were affected. One of the suits was that of a a a a i Service, against Robeson County, its commissioners, and James Porter who operates a private waste disposal system. The county was permanently enjoined from withholding the a i of a license to Lafayette for disposal of waste, not described as because of agreements with Sanitation Services and James Porter. The second case was that of James Porter against Suburban Sanitation Service, and J.B. McBryde. No recovery was given either party, but Surburban was enjoined from collecting waste in favor of Sanitation Services, and the plaintiff, James Porter, is to recover such damages as may be assessed. Defendants were required to post bond to insure such payment. LIGHTER BAT HELPS (AP) Shortstop Dave Concepcion of the Cincinnati Reds is sold on light bats.
