Now thai all the girls are wearing '.heir skirts so much shorter 1 am ashamed of these awiiil looking legs. Can you please tell me what can be done about them? I'll do anything!: ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: You should be ASHAMED hut not of your legs. Of your attitude. I wish I conld escort you thru just one Easter Seal Rehabilitation center. There you would see any number of beautiful teen-age girls who w o " 1 d give ANYTHING in the world for a pair of healthy legs—regardless of "shape." You would then get down on your knees and thank God for those "shapeless" legs that get you where you're going. DEAR ABBY: A woman recently started to care for a baby boy in her home during the day while both parents worked. This woman took the liberty of cutting that baby's hair without permission from the parents. He is 15 months eld and his parents wanted to keep the baby "aura" around him for a while yet. They had special plans for his first haircut. His mother has kept a record of • his "firsts," wilh photographs and an account of his reactions. Sure, his hair will grow out again, but his parents have been cheated out of the thrill of this important event. Couldn't the couple sue this woman for d e f a c i n g their baby? Do you think this woman should be trusted with a child if she lakes such liberties? ANOTHER PARENT DEAR ANOTHER: Yes, they can sue, but whether they can collect for "defacing" the child is doubtful. The woman was presumptuous, to be sure, but perhaps she was not aware thai the parents placed so much importance on the baby's first haircut. DEAR ABBY: Today my husband ana i recu.veil an invitation lo a Wedding that took place r week ago — 1,500 miles away. Should we assume that all the invitations were mailed this late? Or should we assume that ours was mailed late on purpose because lliej really didn't want us to come? Also, undei the circumstances should we send the couple a wedding present? And should we let them know WHEN we received their invitation? BEWILDERED DEAR BEWILDERED: First let the couple know WHEN their invitation was received, and from their response you can decide whe'her or not to s e n d a present. DEAR ABBY: I have a dear friend who has a son in Viet Nam. He recently won some medals for heroism, which were presented !o his wife. Now most wives of servicemen are fine people, but this one isn't anything to brag about. I don't think those medals mean very much to the wife because she lets her kids take them outside and play with them. I know that the mother of this soldier is very hurt to see her son's medals treated in this way. If she had them she would treasure them along with his Boy Scout medals and other symbols of achievement he has earned through the years. I think the government should give a duplicate set of medals to the heroes' mothers. In some cases the mothers deserve them more than the wives. OFF MY MIND By BILL BOYARSKY SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) —U.S. Sen. Thomas H. Kucnel, a Republican who draws Democratic votes, is gelling unexpected help toward re-election Dccause GOP Gov. Ronald Reagan wants to preserve parly unity in California. Thus the governor hopes to head a favorite son delegation to the 1968 Republican National Convention. Some of Reagan's lop political idvisers have stepped in to tone down a potential party-splitting primary fight in June next year. It shapes up between Kuchel, the Senate's assistant GOP leader, and Max Rafferty, state superintendenl of public instruction. Rafferly, who holds a nonpartisan stale job, is backed by Republican conservatives who say Kuchel is too liberal. Reagan has adonted a neutral pose. An aide said the governor is firmly convinced "a bitter primary will help Ihe Democrats in November and reduce the chance of a unified delegation to the convention." Kuchel, said the aide, has 'come up for re-election at the right time. Since we're working hard to keep the party together, he's the beneficiary of that." Rafferty. however, has made it clear that he will run against Kuchel next year if he is assured of enough campaign contributions. Kuchel's supporters bristled. They also were embittered over action of a conservative volunteer group, the California Republican Assembly, which criticized Kuchel and called for a candidate who will further Republican goals.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 lo Dec. 21) Many duties are ahead of you, but there is a bigwig "These people who want lo dump Tom Kuchel from his Senale seat are the same spoilers who wrecked Dick Nixon's campaign for governor of California in 1962 because he was 'too liberal,'" said Assemblyman William T. Bagley, R-San Rafael. "They are political piranhas who feasl upon their own, and whose appetites are satialed only by defeat of those Republicans with whom they disagree." Rafferty was one of the heroes of the CRA convention. He gol loud applaude with an attack on what he called a "senator who speaks out of both sides of his mouth." Reagan had sought unsuccessfully to cool down the CRA, telling the grassroots workers he didn't mind their challenging Kuchel as long as they didn't rip the party apart with a violent attack. His aides were privately unhappy al Rafferty's speech and at the CRA's anti-Kuchel action. They already have asked the wealthy Southern California conservatives who originally financed Reagan's governorship campaign ~ot to support Rafferty's candidacy. One big contributor, Los Ageles oilman Henry Salvatori, said Rafferty should stay out of the race. Rafferty has said he would need about $1.3 million for a campaign and "I haven't come near it." Some Democrats are hoping Rafferty will enter — and win. Kuchel always has polled many Democratic votes. Also mentioned as a potential candidate is the retired Air Force chief of staff, Curtis E. LeMay. Potential Democratic candidates are waiting to see what develops in the GOP. Los Angeles Mayor Samuel W. Yorty appears moving toward entering the Democratic race. Party leaders against Yorty are talking about opposing him with either former Slate Controller Alan Cranston or Thomas W. Braden, Oceanside newspaper publisher . and former president of (he Stale Board of Education. And Jesse M. Unruh, a Democrat from Inglewood who has risen lo speaker of the State Assembly, might also enter Ihe race. Remember Pay Your Paper Boy Today In History jGcn.
