Dear Abby They'll have a new topic for tomorrow By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been best friends with, the couple next door for years. We play bridge together, and have taken trips together and our children play together. One night (a few weeks ago) the husband went to bed early, so his wife came over to^watch TV with us. She went home around midnight, but forgot her house key and was locked out. Her husband, beim a very sound sleeper, didn't hear the doorbell. She came over to our bedroom window (not wishing to awaken our children by ringing the doorbell), and shouted Carol Jean Hughes, Richard Savage wed CHARLES CITY—Carol Jean Hughes and Richard E. Savage were married in the First Congregational Church. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hughes Jr., rural Charles City, and Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Savage, Ottumwa. The bride, graduate of the Charles City High School, is a student at State College. The bridegroom was graduated from Ottumwa High School and the State College of Iowa. He is an industrial engineer. Following a wedding trip to Chicago, they are at home in Ottumwa where the bride is to begin teaching kindergarten Jan. 11. SCALEWATCHER ,CLUB MEETING IS HELD Scalewatchers held a Christmas party at the home of Mrs. Richard Mott. After a business session, lunch was served by Mrs. Mott and Mrs. Robert Smith. Gifts were exchanged and court whist was played. up to us to help her get into her house. My husband put OB his bathrobe and went outside to try to find an open window in their house while I kept ringing their phone, hoping to, wake up her husband. I finally succeeded and my husband was home in five minutes. . One of the neighbors must have seen my friend under our bedroom window, and watched my husband join her in his bathrobe, and now we find ourselves in the middle of a big scandal! Some say we've been switching mates for years. Others say this woman is trying to break up my home. Anyway, the talk is all over town and we are afraid our children might hear it from their playmates. I can't go up and down the streets yelling it isn't true. What can we do? We can't all leave town. We own our homes, our husbands' jobs are here, and we can't afford to move. INNOCENT VICTIM DEAR INNOCENT: Don't do anything. If you could afford to leave town, the move would only make you appear guilty. Worthwhile people neither believe gossip nor spread it. And the most wholehearted denial has yet to still on* -vicious tongue.

Nedved left lis week for Los Angeles where e plans to spend a month vis- ing his daughter at the Ralph rtcCall home. DEAR ABBY: I am disgusted with women. My husband plays with a well-known band. Women call him up and write to him from all over the country. Some of them are old enough to be his mother. I often travel with my husband and.have actually seen women follow him to the door of the men's room! Any time now I expect to see one go in after him. Whatever happened to decent women? LISA DEAR LISA: Decent women are still with us, so don't judg* the entire sex by the women you've seen chasing your husband. Musicians are constantly being pursued by man-hungry women, but those who don't want to .be bothered need only to ignore the glances, messages and overtures a* soon as they get the pitch. DEAR ABBY: The letter from the mother of the 17- year-old boy, who tried to tell her that he should be allowed to stay out until midnight every night because "all his friends", could, fascinated me. I am the mother of five sons. My oldest (now married) tried the same stunt with me. I asked him for the names of the boys who had all the privileges he wanted and I telephoned their mothers in front of him. It turned out that all the boys were using the same story. They said our son had Paris Fled Market cult big in fashion world fty EUGINIA SHIPYARD »tow Y*rk H«r*M-Tribwiw N*w* fervtet NEW YORK (HTNS)—Thpre is a great big fashion cult going for that old droopy, draggy look of clothes that are bought at the Paris Flea Market, the great- grandmother of all other thrift shops. Any girl with a wardrobe bought at the Paris Flea Market has it made as far as publicity goes over here, at least. A few years ago, it was Maxine De La Falaise, whose short, skimpy ttle beaded shifts, all bought t the Flea Market, bowled over York cocktail parties. La er, she loaned her thrift-shop lothes to be copied in the .merican market and they were sell-out. DISCOTHEQUE — Sophisticated black brocade skimmer for evenings styled by Goethe. Detailed with a squared neckline, self-bow under the bust- line and hem-deep flounce. all the privileges they wanted. The other mothers were glad I called. Once my son learned that Mother could not be fooled, he quit trying. A THANKFUL MOTHER Problems? Write to Abby, care of Globe-Gazette Los Angeles, Calif.

Last summer in Paris, a girl with a (5 crepe dress from the Flea Market—was the belle of the ball in every night club. The cutest girl at St. Tropez was done up in jewelry and with a veiled Flea Market hat on her head. *i ; rM4y-t»-WMr clothes in Europe are all based on the Flea Market look.

Slightly dazed by the new chic of the thrift shop look are the thrift shops themselves.
