t ESTHER VILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 12, 1972 Page 6 Need won't make marriage successful By Abigail Van Buren [c 1971 by Chicago Trlbune-N. Y. Newt Synd., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: I have been considering your statement, "All that is necessary for a marriage to succeed is that the two people really need each other." I guess I don't know what you mean by "succeed." My wife and I need each other. She is my cook, housekeeper, and laundress. She raises the children and makes most of the decisions in the family. I provide her with a good income and am available for heavy jobs around the house, errands, and occasional child caring. We have no sex life, and haven't for the last 4 years of our 13-year marriage. That is her one decision I protested, but without result. Our anniversaries come and go without comment. Divorce and remarriage is out of the question because we took the vow to stay together " 'til death do us part." Furthermore, one look at our widowed acquaintances shows us life alone is hardly preferable. So we plod along, yoked together in this polite, sterile, wretched alliance you call a "success." I would amend your statement to say "All that is necessary for a marriage to endure is that the two people really need each other." ENDURING DEAR ENDURING: Your "amendment" is approved and appreciated. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are fairly new in town and we recently had some of our new friends over for a dinner party. I served a dessert that made a big hit with all the guests. One lady asked for the recipe. I tried to get out of giving it to her, but she kept after me until I agreed to mail it to her. My problem is that recipe is a specialty of mine that has been in my family for years and I don't want everyone in town making it, yet I don't know how to gracefully get out of giving it to her. Do you think I'm being selfish? How can I handle this? I can't avoid this woman much longer. NEW IN TOWN DEAR NEW: Because you promised her the recipe, give it to her. If you didn't want to share it, you should have told her it was a family secret and you preferred to keep it that way. Yes, I think you're being selfish. If everybody in town were to enjoy your favorite dessert, it would in no way diminish your enjoyment of it. C'mon, share! DEAR ABBY: I am a young wife. We've been married • eight years, and my husband has yet to call me by my first *name. He doesn't even call me "honey" or anything like "that. He just doesn't call me anything. If he wants to get my attention, he'll say, "Hey," or, "Say, there." Or he'll just start right in talking to me, still not using any kind of name. I really burn when he calls the office and says, "Sally, is the boss in?" [Sally he can call Sally. Me he has no name for.] When he telephones me at home, and isn't sure he has the right number, he asks, "Is this 266-6686?" I stay mad at him for days over this. At Christmas his card with his present reads, "I'm not much for words, but I love you, Honey." Now, why can't he call me "Honey" once in a while if he doesn't want to use my name? QUIETLY BURNING DEAR BURNING: Why don't you ask him? Instead of quietly burning, tell him how important it is to you to be addressed by name, or in some personal way. If he forgets --remind him. And remind him. But do it gently, with patience and without anger. DEAR ABBY: What do you think about a young boy sleeping with his grandmother? We don't want to hurt Grandma's feelings, but my husband said he heard it's "unhealthy" for a child to sleep with a real old person. Personally, I think that's a lot of bunk. What is your opinion? GRANDMA TROUBLE DEAR TROUBLE: At what age do you consider a boy "young"? And how old is "real" old. CONFIDENTIAL TO "TOO EMBARRASSED FOR WORDS" IN SARASOTA, FLA.: Tell your therapist everything.

Head Start Council Elects FREE PRESCRIPTION _ DELIVERY THRIFT STAMPS WITH EVERY PURCHASE The Head Start Policy Council of Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc., met Jan. 7 at the Spencer OEO Office. This council is composed of elected parent delegates from each Head Start Class in the nine counties which are served by Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc. and one community representative from each county. The council member's duties are to represent all parents when any important decision is made Iowa Demos Lead Nation In Caucus DES MOINES - (TOPA)— Iowa will be in the national limelight Jan. 24 as Democrats hold their precinct caucuses in what has developed into the first major test in the nation for the Democratic presidential hopefuls. Campaign strategists are a little awed that Iowans have been slow in recognizing the role they could play in this presidential election year. "Iowans are just waking up to the fact that the caucuses are upon them. They don't realize what kind of barometer state Iowa could be, if it wanted to play the role," said Louis Lamberty, coordinator of the Iowa- Nebraska campaign for Sen. George McGovern. William Sueppel, Iowa coordinator for Sen. Edmund Mus- kie, agrees. Sueppel, Iowa City lawyer who has been involved in presidential campaigns before, expects 30 to 50 members of the national press corps to be on hand to cover some the nearly 2,600 caucuses. Lamberty, Omaha, says thtvt hardly a day goes by that ht doesn't get a telephone call from some member of the national press corps. Although the caucuses are less than two weeks away, many Iowans apparently are unaware that the Democrats' precinct caucuses precede any of the presidential state primaries. "Since this is the first in the , nation, reporters are trying to use it as some kind of indicator < as to how things are going to go," explained Lamberty. But answering that question is not easy. Outside of the McGovern and Muskie organizations, little has been heard of from the other presidential hopefuls. The draft Kennedy movement has been dying out, mainly because of the Senator's statements that he will not be a candidate. Although the campaign manager for New York Mayor John Lindsay has proclaimed Iowa a "target state" for Lindsay, there appears to be little support for him in Iowa at this time. There is scattering support for Eugene McCarthy and Hubert Humphrey from neighboring Minnesota has not been heard from. Henry (Scoop) Jackson is still a voice in the political wilderness as far as most Iowans are concerned. But the problem for the political campaign managers is the number of uncommitted Iowans. pertaining to Head Start budgets, grant applications, etc. The following people were elected by their respective groups to serve for 1972: BUENA VISTA: Delegates Margaret Curren, Storm Lake, Sandy Scholtus, Newell: Community representative Mrs. Robert Borgman, Storm Lake.'

Youth Employment Program Here Mayors in 75 Iowa communities are currently receiving a detailed proposal for establishing a summer youth employment program in their areas, it was announced today by Robert Deaver, chairman of the Youth Employment Committee, Governor's Youth Opportunity Council. Estherville is included in this massive move to provide summer employment for Iowa youth of junior high, high school and college ages, whether in school or not. "The step-by-step proposal," Deaver explained, "has been field tested in several Iowa lo­ calities, getting recommendations and approval from the mayors in these communities before being released. "The plan is a workable one, calling for the formation of a Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Committee in mid-January. This committee will be composed of local youth and community leaders who are interested in serving young people and have an understanding of their employment problems during the summer months. Organization and active planning, involving the entire community, should have job openings available to be filled by hundreds of your<? persons at the close of the school year early in June." Deaver said that the proposal Includes the opening of a local summer youth employment office about the end of March, at which time recruitment and registration of local youth for summer work will get under way afternoons after school and on Saturdays. Plans also call for the area Iowa State Employment'Service office to play an important part in the implementation of the local program. 'Shame' Wage-Price Violators FREE WASHINGTON (AP) - The Cost of Living Council says it will start disclosing the names of violators of wage-price controls, and a congressman has hinted his committee may investigate current policy unless additional action is taken to protect consumers. Council Director Donald Rumsfeld said Monday the new disclosure policy includes the possibility that results of council investigations may be given to persons who file complain^ against excessive price and wage increases. Names of violators have been automatically withheld unless the government went to court to force compliance with wage- price guidelines. The government also continually has said consumers are not entitled to see business records that contain justification for price hikes. The council did not say whether companies will be required to disclose that information according to the new policy. Rep. Wright Patman, chairman of the House Banking Committee, meanwhile asked the Price Commission and Pay Board to detail how they have complied with congressional mandates in the new laws. The Texas Democrat said he is particularly interested in those pertaining to the handling of retroactive pay hikes and those on the rights of consumers. In letters Monday to the chairmen of both control lOTXTRll &rTi GREEN STAMPS I agencies, Patman said his panel might hold hearings to see if conditions written into the legislation extending President Nixon's economic-control powers are being met. One provision is that previously negotiated pay raises caught in the initial 90-day wage-price freeze are to be paid if prices were increased to cover them, unless they are inconsistent with inflation fighting standards. Secretary of Labor James D. Hodgson today urged federal mediators to watch out for attempts to get around wage controls. "Both the future of collective bargaining and the controls program are ill-served by such mischief, and we should not be reticent in saying so," the secretary said in remarks for the annual seminar of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Hodgson also told the mediators, who sit in when requested on difficult labor-management bargaining sessions to help toward a settlement, that they should discourage management bargainers from agreeing to a big wage increase because they think the board will reject it. "There is the case, and I know this has happened, when one of the parties says, 'Let's not knock ourselves out. The settlement may be a bad one, but let's • agree to it anyway and then let the Pay Board knock it down," Hodgson said. Meanwhile, the Price Commission told insurance companies they must reduce by 37.5 per cent the portion of any new rate hike. Previous requirements permitted any size increase if it was based on the rate of inflation. DICK CAVETT — Secretary of Interior Rogers Morton scheduled. 10:30 p.m. ABC.
