McNaught Syndicate Inc. very efficient. by Abigail Van Buren—— Best Explanation Is Always the Truth DEAR ABBY: My sister has a son (I'll call him Joey) who was born out of wedlock. He is 6 years old. About 4 months ago my sister married a man who refuses to take Joey into his home, but he pays for his support. Joey now lives with our parents and he can't understand why his mommy "visits" him at Granny's but she won't take him "home" with her. My sister hasn't told Joey anything. I feel he should be told something. But what? I think I have a right to ask this question because my mother is in poor health, and now my sister wants me to promise that I will look after Joey in case something happens to our mother. I am 24, have been self-supporting since I was 16, and plan to be married in June. Please withhold my name. NAMELESS DEAR NAMELESS: Joey should be legally adopted by someone who wants him. Ideally you, since you appear to be the only one who is sufficiently concerned about what the boy thinks. Under the circumstances the only explanation would be the truth. No one can be forced to raise a child he doesn't want. And if he could, I'd pity the Poor child. DEAR ABBY: Your advice to the father who was worried because his son was smoking pot showed that you don't know what your're talking about. Marijuana is NOT a drug. It is NOT habit - forming. It is NOT as injurious to the body as alcohol. And it serves a very useful purpose in that it relaxes a person, sharpens his senses and gives him a happy, carefree, all - is - right with - the - world feeling. So, Dear Abby, what is wrong with that? SMOKES POT DEAR SMOKES: Anything, whether it's inhaled, injected, or taken on a cube of sugar to induce a "happy carefree, all - is - right- with - the • world leeling," when all is NOT right with the world poses a serious threat. The reason is obvious. It creates a false sense of security and well- being. While marijuana itself may not be habit - forming, the "habit" of fleeing from reality rather than facing it can be as destructive to the human personality as a drug addition. Altho many authorities on narcotics insist that not all marijuana smokers graduate to heroin or morphine, it would certainly be an easy transition for those 20) Get right down to tasks and business at hand and use care in usual routines so that allies are pleased and you come to better understanding.

You have ingenious system for getting cooperation of co-workers. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) First plan what you should do and then carry through in a positive fashion and you get the right results. Be happier than in the past. Join with con- genials later and rid yourself of pent-up emotions. SAGITTARIUS (Woe. 22 to Dec. 21) Use methods you used before in getting more harmonious relations established at home. Buy whatever new furniture, etc., is needed for the home. Try to control your tem- ier, no matter what the provo- :aiton. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. now and you can increase source of revenue.

DEAR ABBY: How does a father who has excelled in sports all his life adjust to a 15-year-old son who has never shown even a normal interest in sports? I realize that not all boys can be great athletes, but my son has the build for it and the coordination. He could be really good if he wanted to, but he's lazy and isn't competitive in anything. I have done my best to get him interested in sports ever since this boy was old enough to hold a ball, Abby, but it never caught on. I can tell you that it's not easy to be a good father to a boy like this. Any suggestions? CORNHUSKER DEAR CORNHUSKER: Yes, lay off. A "good" father forgets himself and thinks of his son. He then encourages the boy to grow in the direction he seems inclined. CONFIDENTIAL TO C. H L.: "When a man is in trouble he soon finds out who his friends are. They're the ones who COME to him.
