Biynievme (Art.) Courier Newi - Monday, May 15,1WT •» f»» Threi. -by Abigail Van Buren Good Nurses Always Needed DEAR ABBY: I have a neighbor lady who is 78 years old. She's a registered nurse and served with the U. S. Army during World War I in France. She has pictures to prove it. She claims that she was called up to take a physical as they want her for active duty in Viet Nam! Now Abby, this is kind of hard to believe. We may need nurses over there, but do we need nurses that ''badly"? ASKING IN SHREVESPORT DEAR ASKING: r .od nurses are always "badly" needed. But not at 78 and (probably) not in Viet Nam. If your friend was "called," a computer must have "regressed" about 30 years. DEAR ABBY: My father and his second wife arrived here last January for a six- month visit. We have four children, ages 7 to 17. Our eldest, a'Student in high school is married, and he and he and his wife are living With us. (She is expecting.) Our meager savings are dwindling away. I'm growing more nervous, have a twitch in my eye, my hands shake, and I cry over nothing. I scream at the children and pick on my husband. Some mornings I hate to get up and face the day. We are terribly crowded. During my calmer moments I feel ashamed of myself. What is the matter with me? Am I selfish? FEELING GUILTY DEAR FEELING: Selfish? For coming unglued because nine (going on 10) people are living in quarters meant to accomodate six! I would say you are normal. Don't feel guilty. Un. der the circumstances your father and his wife should realize they are inconveniencing you, and clear out. DEAR ABBY: A guy at school likes me, but I don't like him. There's nothing wrong with him, he's just not my type. He calls me for dates months ahead so he knows I COULDN'T POSSIBLY HAVE A DATE FOR THAT NIGHT. What can I tell him? If I say I'm busy, he asks me for the next Friday night, and the next, and the next, and so on. I hate to hurt his feelings, but I hate going out with him even more. I feel sorry for him. Please help me. NOT MY TYPE DEAR NOT: When he calls, tell him you're busy. And if he asks you for the next Friday night, and the next, and the next, give him the same answer. He'll catch on. It isn't as cruel as it sounds. At least you're turning him loose to ask someone who might be more his type. It's far more honest than going out with him because you feel nothing but sorry for him. CONFIDENTIAL TO "A DISTRAUGHT MOTHER": Your daughter and her kind" are not necessarily "the scum of the earth." You need to replace your ignorance and prejudices with some, enlightenment and understanding. Send me your name and address, which will be held in the strictest of confidence and I will recomend some educational reading on homosexuality. How has the world been treating you?

Astrological * Forecast * By CAfiBOU, OIGHTEB Vo determine fonr forecast, auu paragraph opposite dates whlcb include rour blrtb date TUESDAY GENERAL TENDENCIES: The early AM finds you with the ability to achieve a great deal by using your energy to put into motion some highly desirable plan. The afternoon and evening finds an entirely different influence in effect that requires a considerable amount of caution to sidestep being deceived by yourself or by another, so be careful. ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) The morning gives you every opportunity to accomplish much that is valuable, so keep busy, since later in the day you may have disappointments of one sort or another. Don't be en-j vious of others. Keep on the constructive side. TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) An idea which one at home may suddenly drop may be very advantageous for you, so show your real devotion. Steer clear of partner who wants to argue. This is not right time to make arrangement between kin and one not in the family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) State your aims to regular associates in A.M., but be sure you carry through-with duties later and don't expect too much from others. Give a well - deserved compliment to one .who is vital to your well being. MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) You are able to take 9KNllUfnt care of financial, security matters early, but be sure later you do not spend extravagantly. Simple pleasures are just as enjoyable and bring you satisfaction. Be sensible. LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Morning is ideal for whatever requires personal expenditure of energy and mental prowess. Do nothing that will cause jealousy at home. Be charming in getting others to go along with your ideas for best results in the days ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Plan what must be done so that you have greater progress later on, but do not confide in others right now. Be cheerful handling your duties. This is particularly true for whatever is pretty much secretive. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Plan to get in touch with good comrades early so that you can plan a social evening with them instead of keeping so busy with business matters. Forget about that big expenditure. Be more economical. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Any discussion with a bigwig is best in A.M., and it behooves you to do nothing that will jeopardize your reputation in P.M. Use ingenuity in taking care of some civic affair. This could prove to be most interesting. SAGITTARIUS (N 0 V. 22 t 0 Dec. 21) Forgetting that worry is easy if you step out early into the world of business and culture and you can make big headway there. Some new con- dously. Avoid that person who is a gossip, nagger. CAPRICORN (Dec, 22 to Jan. 20) Say no to that person who want to stop you from attending to important duties either via the telephone or taking you out on a tangent. Then go out socially with mate. This will help to clear up any misunderstanding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Don't try to settle that argument between a higher-up and an associate just yet. Get your facts absolutely straight and well in your rnind. Concentrate on imporaant matters in the privacy of your study tonight. PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Rather than be off on some silly spree with a pal, get your surroundings beautiful, nicely cleaned. Give your own special attention to several matters that nobody can handle as well as you. Be clever. IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he, or she, will be one of those fascinating young people who early has a desire to pursue a career .that will take him, or her, before the public in general, be it from the media of the stage, politics, or selling. Teach very early to first think twice before speaking since there could otherwise be bad misinterpretations.
