SB-DEL RiO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Sunday, April 11, 1971 Mrs Worley Speaks At New Century Meet Mrs. Ernest L. Worley Jr. spoke on "Over Population" at the regular meeting of the New Century Club Wednesday afternoon in the • San Felipe Country Club. Mrs. Wayne Love and Mrs. James Simmonds were responsible for the program on "Our Crowded World" and Mrs. Simmonds presented Mrs. Worley. She said "birth control is not new. It was mentioned in an ancient Egyptian scroll written 4,000 years ago and it was a topic of lively discussion among Greek philosophers 2,400 years ago. Aristotle argued that civilization could best be served by a stationary population and argued for laws limiting the number ofchildren any family could have," the speaker said. She called over population a world-wide problem with hunger, inadequate housing, crowded classrooms, transportation, traffic problems, air and water pollution, more people using more, all being contributing causes to a less meaningful life. Planned parenthood was cited as the answer to the problem. Mrs. Worley also stated "No place in the United States was more badly in need of family planning that Del Rio. We have patients ranging from 15 to 47. We currently have nearly 300 names on our list of patients and participants. They range from newlyweds who want to postpone their families until they are better able to afford them to women with as many as 17 children. Many of our patients see a doctor for the first time in our clinics, which are held twice weekly with doctors volunteering their services." Mrs. Worley is director of Planned Parenthood here. She explained the program in detail and concluded her talk with the remark, "Our population is our problem. It is to our great advantage to give, others the opportunities we possess the chance to plan responsibly their families and to bring about the ideal." Hostesses for the afternoon were Mrs. Earl Bowers, Mrs. Ray Hill and Mrs. J.B. Phillips. During the business session, Mrs. Jerry Richter and Mrs. Silas Byrd were welcomed as new members. , The tables were arranged in U-shape and covered with gold cloths and decorated with potted plants in pastel Easter hats. Later they were given as door prizes to Mrs. Fred Rose, Mrs. Edward Hollingsworth, Mrs. Beverly Tabor and Mrs. Darrell Brawley.

The bottom part was bolted to the bed frame and the top part was cut so that two vinyl-covered piano bench cushions would fit side by side with no plywood showing. We used decorative upholstery tacks around the edge to hold the cushions to the plywood. These cushions come in assorted colors in vinyl, corduroy and even velvet. One cushion could be used for a. twin bed. Mrs. David Wells * * * That's 11 khiK-Hizrd hint, I'd say, and you deserve u crown for sharing; your idea \vlth us, Mrs. Wells.

This saves a lot of splashing around and even keeps my mixer cleaner. Mrs. L. B. M. DEAR HELOISE: I always got confused as to V whether clocks should be turned forward or backward when we change over to our new time until someone told me . . .

Jack Boyle * * * DEAR HELOISE: May I write a few words to come to the rescue of left- handers who are trying to learn to sew? I am a former Home Economics teacher and a left- handed person myself, so 1 have met the problem many times, only in reverse! My solution was to place the material in front of the beginner in the best position for her to sew. Then I would face her and by starting to sew with my left hand, I could demonstrate a few stitches, and since she was facing me, her right hand was in position to pick up where I left off and she could continue sewing. \ BETROTHED-Miss Maria Teresa Hernandez, daughter of Mr. and , - Mrs. David Hernandez of 501 Rubio St., is engaged to be married' big hat, from garden-party tQ Mjchae) Ficnret .

Mrs. John H * * » DEAR HELOISE: The other night, baby and I went along for the ride when taking my sister home across town. I took his pajamas to get him ready for bed as It would be late when we returned. However, it dawned on me that I had forgotten a plastic sheet to put under him, and as he doesn't wear rubber pants at night, he would have to sleep on a lap or on the seat as is. Then' I got the idea of put- i ting on the rubber pants (he i had worn) over his pajamas. No wet seat, and they w,ere easy to remove at home without waking him up. Linda Butler * * * DEAR HELOISE: To renew that leftover meat loaf, just return It to the pan in which it was baked, place a small container of water In the space left by what yovi have used, cover tightly with foil and heat in a moderate oven. Tastes just like new! Mrs. C. A. S. DEAR HELOISE: An easy way to thread a needle is to take your thread end and wet it slightly, then stroke it across a bar of soap. Your thread will -then elide through the smallest eye of a needle. Marjorie • * • • DEAR HELOISE: > My mother-in-law keeps a block under the far end of her dish drainer tray. The water runs off the tray beautifully instead of collecting in .a puddle under the dishes, . Mrs. M. Wachs By Abigail Van Buren Cfi> Ifll by Ckiato Trlhmt-N. Y. NIWI Smd., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: You recently wrote that there is more fighting going on in the average American home because of hair than anything else. ; I am a girl,, 19, and I want to know why adults are so quick to judge a person by his outward appearance? If a boy has long hair he is taken for a hippie, radical, pot smoker, homosexual or freak. Why? It makes me sad that outward appearances .mean everything to adults. They don't bother to look at a person and see beyond his hair or his dress. They don't care what's on the inside. Why can't adults forget what a person looks like, Abby, and judge him for what he is? They'd get to know a lot more beautiful people they now pass up because they look like trash. SPEAKING FOR MANY DEAR SPEAKING: I agree, It's what a person Is on the inside that's important. But we can't go around with X-ray eyes, bypassing appearances in order to look into a person's heart, soul and motivations. So, I ask you, why would a respectable girl want to get herself dressed up to look like a streetwalker? And why would a decent productive young man want to look like a shiftless, unwashed, bushy-headed bum? ^ Long hair, if It's clean and cared for, doesn't offend me, But long, greasy, neglected hair on men or women—young or old—does. A person may be immaculately clean, but if he looks dirty, I don't want him serving me in a restaurant. And I haven't the time to give him a physical. True, perhaps we are missing out on meeting a lot of beautiful people because they look like trash. But who wants to pick thru what looks like trash in order to meet beautiful people? Somewhere there should be a happy medium. And tho I respect a person's right to comb his hair and dress the way' he wishes, if he gets himself dressed up to look like he's going to a costume party, he shouldn't feel that society is picking on him if somebody laughs. DEAR 4BBY: Many pregnant, unmarried girls have never heard of Florence Crittenton Services. We offer girls a place to live with other girls who share the same problems. We give them good medical care, an opportunity to continue their education, plus other .services the expectant mother may need. We charge acc6rding to how much the girl and her family can pay. The girl may either live in one of our 48 homes around the country, or she may decide to live in her own home, but accept some of the services we offer. She may keep her baby or give it up. The decision is hers and there is no pressure. Please, Abby, tell girls who need our help to look for Florence Crittenton Services in the white pages of their phone books, or write to our home office at 608 S. Dearborn St., Chicago, 111. 60605. .MARY W. PALMER DEAR MARY: I have long been acquainted' with your fine services and have recommended Florence Crittenton to hundreds of girls without hesitation, but another boost won't hurt. DEAR ABBY: The letter from the woman who said her husband never gives her children compliments, only criticism, prompts this letter. My father is the same way. But we know he loves us. His idea of a compliment is, "Well, it's about time you did something uEightj^ummy!'' ,,A father shows his love just by feeding and clothing his family and working Hard to give them the best. My father Jaihe from a strict European family who never said much Fand never showed much Affection. I know it's hard for dad to say, "I love you." He has only said it twice to me. Once when 1 he whipped me for. something and found out later I didn't do it. And the other time was on the telephone when I was 2,000 miles away, and homesick, and I said, "I love you," first. I \ No matter what my father says, or doesn't say, I know n> loves me. " CAROLE What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Box 69700. Los Angelei, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope. ENGAGED--Miss Natividad G. Cast a no, daughter of Mrs. Amelia D.

Remember that he ruffed the third heart and that East was left with the ace. South was correct to play three rounds.of trumps, but he should have won the third trump in dummy and led out dummy's king of hearts. East would cover with the ace and South should simply discard a low diamond and show East his hand. It wouldn't matter a bit where the king of diamonds and queen of clubs were located.
