New Shapes Promise Comfort, Style 8lend The new shapes in furnishings for the 1970s promise a blend of comfort and style -- e x a m p l e s include The Montego (L-above), which has been jdetcribed as "a cloud on a chrome base". It boasts such exquisite detailing as double-needle seams and s o f t - e d g e cushions. Another example is the Sarasota (L-below), a sophisticated swivel chair contoured to capture all invaders. And its clean lines and mobility lend a flexible air to room decor. The Sarasota doubles up with a twin nicely, as m the room setting photo (R). Symposium 111, the room setting, is so called because it is part of the "third edition" of the Symposium collection, first introduced one year ago. The pieces shown "speak" harmoniously together, and the sofa is available with casters for easy behind-the-sofa cleaning. It blends with' other stylet in Its own compatible fashion, with self-straps suggestive of the campaign look. News... Features...

TRIBUNE 7 Billy Graham Enters Women's Lib Controversy ^^ Evangelist Billy Graham has entered the ^women's liberation controversy by reminding feminists that "the Bible ; teaches that women have a role, that it , is a' noble role, a God-given role, and thev..will be happiest, most creative -and freest -- when they assume and ac- icept.that role." : Dr. Graham, writing in the December : issue of a women's magazine, states the ·Bible teaches that, "Eve's biological I role, was to bear children -- "in sorrow ithou Shalt bring forth children' (Gene- isis 4:16). Her romantic role was to love i her .husband -- 'Thy desire shall be to {thy 1husband 1 (v. 16). Her vocational ! role'.was to be second in command -- 1'and.he shall rule over thee.' (v. 16)." · Man's role (given to Adam) was to be j the'breadwinner ("In the sweat of thy !face shall thou eat bread"), says Dr. 'Graham. "Biologically, Eve was made to be wife and mother, and Adam was to be husband and father . . . Of course there were peripheral functions for each'," states Dr. Graham. "But these , were fundamental roles, and throughout I history, there has been very little devia- tion from the pattern. And when society has tried to merge the sexes into one, and has failed to recognize their basic and important differences, serious consequences have ensued," he asserts. "We speak of liberation, but liberated from what?", Dr. Graham asks. ". . . . is the freedom some women are contending for, a freedom to follow a career and abandon wifehood or motherhood? That is the crux of the situation," he says. "For those women who work, there must be respect, and dignity, and equal rewards. But in the larger perspective, I feel they should not lose sight of the fact that a career alone can never bring total fulfillment. "Man without woman is incomplete, says the Bible: 'And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man shall be alone: I will make him an help meet for him' (Genesis 2:18) . . . . Man, biologically and emotionally strong, needed the seasoning of tenderness that woman alone could provide, and she in turn required man's strength and leadership qualities to complete her, to give her fulfillment," states Dr. Graham. "There is a freedom of the spirit which is vastly more than liberation. It allows a woman to choose how she arranges her commitments -- but it urges her'tb keep those commitments. Wife, mother, homemaker, this is the appointed destiny of real womanhood," Dr. Graham says. "It can be embroidered on and supplemented, but the fabric underneath must be preserved. This is the Judeo-Christian ethic, and with it, women have risen above the low status they have in areas of the world where this spirit has not dominated," Dr. Graham states. "It is significant that women of the West, the direction that Christianity took in its growth, have more freedom than any other women in the world." Dr. Graham notes that the Scriptures state, '"For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is head of the Church' (Esphesians 5:23). Contrary to the belief of some, this arrangement does not belittle women or demean them," Dr. Graham asserts. "Remember, man is incomplete without woman, Sfifcfi/n' Jime's Pattern Choice: \ Miss Sue Smith Is Bride ·;Of Gregory Kent Spence 'Great Classic' and he is always indebted to her for his wholeness," he says. "I believe the women's liberation movement is an echo of our overall philosophy of permissiveness," states Dr. Graham. "Everyone, young and old, male and female, seems bent upon abandoning any moral, Biblical and traditional guidelines. Many women are obviously saying: 'Why can't we get in on the act?'" he says. "After talking with hundreds of American women, I am convinced that the overwhelming majority want to remain feminine -- and to be what they were meant to be," Dr. Graham says. "They don't want to fight in the trenches ... they don't want to go into men's restrooms; they don't want to compete against men in football. They may want to work to assume more community responsibilities, but they want to dp these things as women, not as competitive juggernauts pitted against 'male chauvinists'." Dr. Graham sates in his article that "women cannot abdicate the greatest power of all -- the power to shape the world through the influence of a Godly home. This is the core, the base, the .essence, and we are losing sight of it." ^ DEAR ABBY: In the past, my husband got a disease, got a girl pregnant, bed, cheated -- you name it, he did it. He is almost 50 years old and he hasn't changed any. We've been married 30 years and have a fine family, which I brought up practically alone. When the. children were youngsters he never played with them or brought them any toys, but for some tramp, he always found the time and money. He is still forever making excuses to go out. He waits until it's dark. The bum. You are probably asking why I put up with it all these years. Mostly because of the children, God love them. I kept my feelings and all my heartaches from them, and ail the while my husband said he loved me and he couldn't live without me. (Bull, of course.) Abby, .

The simple ribbing pattern, and directions now that the kids are gone, do you think it was worth it? STUCK IT OUT DEAR STUCK: If you do, it was. DEAR ABBY: My parents would have celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary last week if my father had lived, but he died 25 years ago and my mother never remarried. 1 spoke to my mother on the date that would have been their anniversary and much to my surprise she was very angry at me for not having given her a "Golden Wedding Anniversary" party. I felt just awful.about it after realizing that she had really expected it. I live 100 miles away, but keep in close touch with my mother, When she told me she had even bought herself a gold dress for the occasion, I was heartsick. Do many people celebrate an anniversary after their mates are gone? I guess the older I get the more stupid I get. STUPID DAUGHTER DEAR DAUGHTER: There is no reason to "celebrate" an anniversary after one's mate is gone. It's a thoughtful gesture to entertain the surviving mate on the date of her (or his) anniversary, but you needn't feel "stupid" for failing to give your mother a "Golden Wedding Anniversary Party" under these circumstances. DEAR ABBY: What is a mother supposed to say when her child asks "Can Jimmy stay for supper," and Jimmy is standing right there looking up into your face? I always say, "Of course, but Jimmy has to call his mother and get her permission first." Then my brat says, "Mother, you call Jimmy's mother. He's afraid to." So, like a ninny, I go to call Jimmy's mother, and she says, "Are you sure he'll be no trouble?" Then what am I supposed to say? Anyway, I think you have the picture. i really don't object to one, or more, little tyke for supper because mine is an only child and it gives him someone to play with, but I don't like being maneuvered into it this way and my son pulls this often. Also, after supper they play until it's dark, and guess who has to take the dinner guest home? Is there a solution? ON THE STOP DEAR ON: Your resentment at being outsmarted by a couple of junior con artUta is understandable, but be glad your son has friends. Simply tell him to ask you privately if he may have a guest for supper. What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Box 69300. Los Angeles, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope.
