Our daughter will be a freshman this fall in a co-ed university halfway across the continent. It's considered a fine school, but I understand there is practically no supervision. I mean, they stay in dormitories, and there is a dean of women to talk to, but their h o J r s are very liberal. They can "sign out' for week-ends, and with so many freshman girls, ours will get no special looking after. We've never had any trouble with our daughter, but with all we hear about premarital sex in colleges, we are concerned. Shouldn't the colleges try to control the freshman girls a little more stricly? After all, it is the first time many of them have ever been away from home. WORRIED MOM DEAR MOM: By the time a girl goes away to college, her moral code is well established, and what she didn't get at home and in church she will not get from the deam of women, it's time parents realized that even more important to college students than "supervision" is a good, sound moral grounding during their Impressionable years at home. Educators cannot be expected to police the morals of college students much beyond the general injunctions that apply to society as a whole. DEAR ABBY: Am I dreaming, or didn't I learn some- where that if one wore a pink or red carnation on Mother's Day it meant his mother wa. 1 still living. But if he wore a white carnation it meant his mother was dead? I mentioned this to someone last Mother's day and he looked at me like I was some kind of nut. Please confirm or deny. NUT OR NOT DEAR NUT: You're not a nut. I've always been under the same impression, but I was told thai practice went out with the fox trot. DEAR ABBY: I am a bachelor, living with my widowed mother. I am her sole support. As a member of a music group, I am scheduled to entertain at home occasionally with classical recordings. Mother loves to talk, and she holds a steady conversation while the music plays. Obviously I cannot tell her to go to the movies, or to leave the room. She prepares a lovely repast after the session. I think more of my mother than my musician friends, so do you think that under the circumstances it would be bet ter if I were to discontinue my association with the music group. My mother is very sensitive to criticism. MUSIC LOVERS DEAR LOVER: Gently ask your mother to please hold her conversation until after the music session. Repeat if necessary. DEAR ABBY: I nearly flip- ped when ! read that letter from the bride who wanted her own brother to be best man at her wedding instead of her fiance's brother, because her brother was tall and handsome, and his brother was short and not very good looking. Why doesn't she marry someone who has a tall brother? She says as long as her parents are paying for the wedding she should be able to pick the people for the wedding party. I think 1 know her problem. Her parents are not only paying for the wedding, but for the man, too. Please print this. The poor groom might see it and wake up in time to be saved a lifetime of despair. NEARLY FLIPPED IN LACUNA How has the world been treating you?
