Reputation to Lose on This Cruise? By Abigail Van Buren ( c IMI b* CMCH4 Trtb»Ftt-H. Y. Nrwl Srnd., IJK.I DEAR ABBY: I am a single, attractive blonde I've recently received a very interesting and tempting invitation frnm a gentleman friend. [I'll cali him Itector.] Hector has been divorced for 15 years and is fairly well-to-do. He's always been a perfect gentleman with me. Hector has invited me to go on a Caribbean cruise with him. All expenses paid. He assures me that all he wants is a charming companion for dining nnd dancing. He' has guaranteed me a separate cabin and my own key. If I go .people will talk, but why should I pass up this once-in-a-litetimo opportunity just because ot some wagging tongues? · . . N. N. WESTPOHT ' HEAR N. N.: People have been wagging Iheir tongues since Hector was a pup, but It your Hector has none of the other cnnine qualities found In most pups, go ahead. All yon have to lose is your reputation, DEAR ABBY: My husband and I light all the time about this one thing. Is it all right for a married woman to go to a nice, clean barroom for a drink and pizza with a married girl ' Iriend it they gel home at a resasonable hour, like 11 o'clock? The other night rny girl friend and I went shopping at 8 l. m. after which we went for a pizza and a drink. At 10 o'clock my husband stonned in like a madman and practically dragged me out ot the place. We fought all night. He claims we looked like a couple, o! pickups. Abby, we were at a table all alone talking to each other. What do you think? ANGRY DEAK ANGRY: I. think If respectable women (single'or marrlcrtl wish to go unescorted to a RESPECTABLE place and they mind their own business, they need not be concerned about, "looking like pickups." . DEAR ABBY: What do you think about people who read while they cat? I recently married a woman with two teen-aged daughters, ·and at every meal all three women bring their favorite reading material to (lie dinner (able and read while they eat. Not a word is uttered other than pass this or that. What do you say? NO NEWS DEAR NO: I say lliat mealtime is pronably the only time a family can sit down together and exchange ideas and enjoy conversation; To read in the presence ot others is rude. It's like saying, "I may as well entertain myself. The company Is pretty dull." [P. S. Perhaps YOU should bring an etiquette hook to the table and read it aloud. J DEAR ABDY: rhavc a problem. My mother. I am only IS and since I have been a kid, my mother has pounded into me the virtues of honesty and truthfulness. I used to'lie to get myself out of trouble, and now my mother is doing it. Mother is overweight and my dad loves her very much and is concerned about her weight. Mom is supposed to be on a diet, hut she cheats. When the ice cream "disappears" she says it melted on (he counter. She eats cake.and cookies and says, "It fell on the floor and the dog ale it." When she buys a dress or gets lier hair fixed and I ask her how much it costs, she will tell me one thing, and when Dad asks her, the prices will immediately go down a couple of dollars. Abby, please print this for parents who do not practice "what they preach. My mom never misses your column. UPSET Everybody h»s a problem. What's yours?

The objective would be to cure Americans o( "the litterbug habit," In a prepared speech to the Keep America Beautiful Committee, the First Lady said it would take effort and money "to develop ways to salvage and re-use the products that have been so lavishly discarded, but the social cost of not doing so is even higher." The President's' wife was guest of honor at the luncheon and received a plaque for her leadership in national bcautlfi- callon efforts.' ' "Surely it Is time for Americans to cure the Jitterbug habit," she said. "About 50 million tons of packaging material are produced each year, and of that, only 10 per cent Is recovered and're-used. The rest Is litter, quantities of municipal litter and scatterings along the highways and byways, waterways and mountainsides of America. It is wasteful as well as unlovely and costly."
