Ntw Sjnrt., IK.1 DEAR ABBY: For the person who disagreed with women's lib when it comes to labeling lavatories, "Ladies and Gentlemen": Here's how it's done in cattle countryij A New York businessman and bis wife were attending a convention in Houston.

I have always wanted an elegant church wedding, which will cost a lot. My mother can well afford it, and says she will gladly give it to me, but I can't have my father there. I want my father to give me away, but mom says if she makes the wedding her father will give me away. I love my grandfather, but I would rather have my own father give me away. My father is broke. The divorce took everything he had, and now he has a new wife and family to support. Mom is single, and she hasn't spoken to dad since the divorce, but regardless of what happened between them, 1 still love my dad. I love mom, too, but I don't think she's being fair to make me choose between a lovely wedding without dad, or none at all. What do you think? SOMETHING BLUE [ME] DEAR BLUE: Unless you tan persuade your mother to change her mind, yon will have to make a choice. I feel that parents who have parted should pat their own feelings aside when tt comes to the weddings of their offspring. If they can't do that, then the bride and groom should ask their . clergyman to perform the ceremony in the presence of those friends and relatives the young people want, and let the battling parents sit home with their grudges. DEAR ABBY: This is for "Hoodwinked," and all the other nice girls who were fooled by married men who posed as bachelors. First of all, Abby, your answer was a dud. You said, "Be a little more fussy. And if you don't know the man, know the fixer-upper." • •• Some of the fixer-uppers mean well, but they, too, have been fooled. And how can a girl be "more fussy," when some of the biggest liars even go to church with you! Here's my answer: Girls, demand proof. If a man says he's divorced, ask to see his divorce papers. If he tries to tug at your heart strings by telling you he's a widower, ask to see his wife's death certificate. If he's over 25 and says he's never been married, ask to meet his mother. If she lives out of town, tell him you'd like to call or write to her. Also, ask him where he works, and tell him you would like to call the personnel department to check his status. I lived in Alaska for five years and I have seen many hearts broken by married "bachelors." I have been shown divorce papers and death certificates and am now married to a man who not only showed me his divorce papers but told me he admired my spunk and respected me for my principles. "FUSSY" IN OAK PARK, ILL. DEAR FUSSY: For girls who want to impress men with their "spank," your answer was better than mine. Thanks for writing. DEAR ABBY: Ten years ago, when I was 18 and wanted to shave my legs, my dad would have done anything to stop me. Yes, there does seem to be a new trend in parents! The "go natural" look is what adults have been wishing kids would find for years. Now that they've found it, the adults complain. I give up!

However, we can assure you that year in and year out the heart lead will work out better.' This time is, of course, an extreme case.

South has reached three no-trump after the Lawrence Welk bidding sequence of 'a-one, a-two, a- tliree'." Jim: "You have to make a blind lead. You feel if you find the right one you will beat the contract. The gen- oral rule is to attack one of the major suits and you hold four cards irr each. Which suit should you pick?" Oswald: "This time the winning lead is the four of hearts. You hit your partner with the ace and wind up with three heart tricks and A our two side aces." ' Jim: '"It is also the best lead from a percentage standpoint. In general you want to play a suit in which you can establish the greatest number of tricks." _ r Oswald: "You start with one sure trick in spades and no sure tricks in hearts.

By AILEEN CLAIRE NBA Food Editor What better way to celebrate Easter and the coming of spring than with a Strawberry-Lemon Cake. Basis here is a sponge cake, layered with fresh strawberries. On top is a fluffy lemon frosting and strawberry garnish. This is one cake the cook will have to hide or nothing will be left when it is time to serve dessert. Since a pancake mix is the basis, this is a good dessert for a young girl to whip up to surprise her current date and friends at a graduation party.. Teens will enjoy the play of flavors in the sweetened strawberries and lemon frosting tang. - SOCIAL CALENDAR MONDAY Del Rio Junior High School Parent-Teacher Association will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria with - Mrs. Ernest L.

HINTS FROM HELOISE Debra Young Honor Guest at Luncheon DEAR HELOISE: Here is how I made an attractive window flower garden that I enjoyed throughout the year. I made a fence from short, white lath fencing, cut about 10-inchea high, and placed it across the bottom of my picture window. * I used artificial green moss at the base of my fence and then "plant" my flowers according to the season. I love to sit in front of it. it is so gay and cheerful and blends with my outside landscaping. Mrs. Harkey * * » What a puurty idea . . . and what a wonderful way to keep the love of nature In your heart. Bless you. Heloise » * * DEAR HELOISE: Just thought of a hint for busy housewives. If you 'don't have time to copy the recipes from your newspaper and magazines onto file cards, why not/Mm them and put them in a photograph album. The recipes will be protected from spills because each page in a photograph album is protected by cellophane. Laverne Perry * * * DEAR HELOISE: I bought an old-fashioned, inexpensive, .accordion wooden hat rack for my teenager. This is a great place for her to hang her chain necklaces, scarves, ribbons, or anything a teenager wants to put on them. They don't look bad in a girl's room, and after all, who looks at their room but another teenager? Rose Scarboro You, South, hold: *A2 VAJ4 •eS *KQJ753 What do you do now? A—Bid seven clubs.

Answer Tomorrow Flower show schedules were studied. •• -'. Sponsors attending were Mrs. Henry B. Horn, Mrs. W.B. Robb and Mrs.Michael Stool. Members present at the meeting were Christy Bodart, A luncheon honoring Miss Debra Young was given at noon Saturday in the San Felipe Country Club by Mrs. W.E. Cook. Miss Young is to be married to Ralph George Hutto April 10. The honoree and her mother, Mrs. Gaylon Young, received the guests with Mrs. C.R. Rose, mother of Miss Young's fiance. Fruit punch was served as guests arrived. For the occasion the guest of honor wore a pink sleeveless silk dress and her flowers were white carnations. The tables were arranged in a T-shape centered with a large driftwood tree covered with utensils for the kitchen. Guests brought kitchen gifts to the guest of honor. The luncheon was attended by 12 guests. DEAR HELOISE: I never mix anything in a small bowl anytime! I've watched people take 10 minutes to mix something in a small bowl so it wouldn't spill. If you use a large bowl, you can really whip up, your ingredients with all the room you need and it takes only half-a-second to wash the big bowl and transfer the ingredients to a smaller one if you have to. Betty Nelson LETTER OF LAUGHTER DEAR HELOISE: Read your hints every day and sure do enjoy them. My spots are gone, my cakes are moist, and I use nylon net by the yards and vinegar by the gallon! Keep the hints coming. Thanks.

Schaut and the Wesley Community Center; a memorial for Mrs. Nina Willis Sherwood was presented by Mr. and Mrs. Frank X. Schaut, who gave another for Mrs. Elizabeth Jungman of Hondo; a memorial for Mrs. Cleo Smith was presented by the Garfield Elementary School faculty and staff. Here are a couple of unusual ways to use your nylon net. I don't Imagine any of your readers, other than a rancher's wife, would think of these hints. Nylon net makes an excellent dusting bag for cattle, goats and sheep. I have also used it to patch a fence until the men In my family were in a patching mood. Of course, we use nylon net like so many "city folks," washing our sheep dogs, for dishes, removing spots, etc. Don't know what we would do without our "Heloise Net." Athol * * * DEAR HELOISE: Here is how I dry my knits. After they are washed, I either hang or place them on a wooden hanger and turn the electri? fan on them. If you wish, you can hang one behind the other and in a few hours they will be dry, clean and fluffier than those dried outaide on a windy day. This hint is especially good for working gals who need to keep their knits in tiptop order. Mrs. Dorothy Emanuelson * * * This column is written for you . . . the housewife and homemaker.
