Sculpting Rainbows Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Tuesday, November 22, MM- f»f» It's art, nor a balancing act, that has Yani Novak, 22-year-old dancer and model from San Francisco, up in the air at right. Her perch is the latest work of a friend, sculptor Charles Ross, who works in a unique mate- rial—Plexiglass. When filled with distilled water, his three : dimensional geometric shapes act as prisms, scattering light and producing a rainbow effect. Capacity of this 15'/2-foot tower, erected at Napa, Calif., is 28 gallons—including four gallons of antifreeze as protection against the winter cold. Left, Yani polishes a Plexiglass panel for a fewer segment. Below, Yani and Ross swish rubbing alcohol around the inside of an assembled prism to remove dust and smudges before filling it with distilled water. Multitudes Visit JFK Grave By ROBERT E.

The great and file famous, Icings and emperors, the ordinary and the obscure citizens of the world have been drawn to the grave. What brings them? Many motives. A busload of children arrives on its Washington sightseeing tour. They pile out laughing and chattering with cameras dangling on their arms. A group of nuns makes the walk around the grave, solemn and silent. A cluster of businessmen, taking time out from a convention, arrives. They talk casually among themselves but stop for a moment in silence. A woman came to the grave in a heavy downpour of rain. She told a cemetery worker: "I came all the way from Canada to see this grave and no rain is going to slop me now, or anything else.'' Another visitor, asked what had drawn him to the grave, said of Kennedy: "He was a man of grace. He died too young, too needlessT). That has haunted me ever since he was killed. I wanted to come and see the place where he is buried." Most of those coming alone appear thoughtful or sad as they reach tiie grave. Many shed a tear.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) something out of you in either a business or personal way that is entirely your own affair. Step out socially tonight. Stay out of arguments and you will not get into trouble. MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) It's wise to wait a better time for going ahead with that project since this could get you into trouble with higher-up right now. Be sure to get that important bill paid. Don't make credit problems for yourself.

Be more serious. VIRGO (Aug. 22 to 'Sept. 22) Being contrary and trying to throw off on others your own obligations is wrong and gets you nothing at all except loss. Show associates that you are conscientious. You will get ahead much faster. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Disagreeing with some partner could certainly start a chain of unpleasant events that are best avoided. Be the peacemaker, since others are feeling pretty upset. Keep calm, cool and poised. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't get excited because there is so much work to do, otherwise you make serious errors so double-check all.

Ripe Husband Needs Bath l I/an tHjuren ISC.) ll;ii]il|||llllll||]HUUIllliillllll(l|llllll|HIIIH DEAR ABBY: When Alt- worthy and I went together I kept wanting to tell him I thought he should either bathe more often or use a deodorant, but I didn't want to hurt his feelings. We've been married a year, he still has the same problem, and I still don't know how to tell him. Now that winter, is here I can't keep all the windows open. Once when a men's deodorant was being advertised on TV, I laughingly said, "Att- worthy, you should try that." His back went up, and he said "What for? I sit at a desk all day and I don't perspire. Besides, I bathe every week." I tried to tell him it wouldn't hurt to use it just to be "sure," but he blew up, so I changed the subject. How can I tell him, Abby? It's getting worse. ATTWORTHY'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: Like this: "I love you, darling, but you are getting a little ripe for me. Everybody perspires, including you, and the odor of perspiration is offensive. Try this men's deodorant (have some in your hand when you make your speech.) Use it for ME, if not for yourself." And if he blows up, tell him to cool off in the bathtub. DEAR ABBY: A letter in your column really hit home with me, and I hope you will publish my letter as your column really hit home with erate at home, you find that a big argument ensues. Show courtesy and you find that everyone follows suit. Then your mind is clear and you can further your finest business aims. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb 19) Dashing hither and yon can only cause you to make errors and get very little done so plan your time and activities wisely first. Show courtesy to underlings in business. You get far better results. PISCES: Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) It may be that some inward fear is what is keeping you from having greater success in a business, career way. Get rid of it. Improve your health. Get material matters working in a quiet, sure fashion. IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY h eor she will be one of those very ambitious young ones who wants to get into the world of activity, earning money very early in life. Teach to be patient, get a good education first, if the greatest potential in this chart is to be realized. A highly talented nature here. Help will come to on the ground. Actually, you i your progeny from various ar- need to economize more just at this time. Be wise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 ot Jan- 120) Unless you are very consid- eas, provided you early show how to impress others favr- ably, make the most of opportunities at hand. NOW!

LE 2-8613 me, and I hope you will publish my letter as a tip-off to other mothers who were as naive as mine: A little girl signed "SQUASHED" wrote to you, complaining about overly-affectionate relatives. If "SQUASHED is a girl, her problem might be more serious than you treated it. I am a grown woman now, but when I was about 8 years old I complained to my mother about an "overly - affectionate" uncle. She laughed it off with, "0, don't be silly. Uncle loves you." To this day my mother does not know that my "loving" uncle tried to climb into bed with me one night when he was visiting us, and I fled, terrified, to my older sister's room to safety. When I am a mother you can be sure I will keep an eye on relatives who get too "affectionate" with my children. GOOD MEMORY DEAR ABBY: My granddaddy on my mother's side gave mom a brand ne wear. He told her it was for her use only and not to let daddy use it because daddy thinks he's a great auto mechanic and if he ever got his hands on that car he'd be tinkering with It in no time. Mom is being pestered to death. Do you think (be should let daddy have a set of keys to her car? If she did and granddaddy ever found out, there would be a war. CAR TROUBLE DEAR CAR: If your mother accepted the car with the understanding that she was not to let your daddy touch it, she should keep that promise. With all due respect to your granddad, dy's generosity, gifts that could start a "war" should be neither offered nor accepted. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069.
