When it came ; time lo kiss, they held U so long the parson had to lap the groom on the shoulder and tell him to.break it up. . Everyone giggled and a holy sacrament was turned into a one-act comedy.- Should the parson have tapped the "room? Shouldn't Ihe bride have pulled away before it got that mushy? How could this have been avoided? WAS THERE DEAR WAS: .The parson should have advised the couple at (lie rchearsnl (hat too much ardor Is out of order at the altar. DEAR ABBY: Your viewpoint and that of other executives' wives on the subject of husbands taking their secretaries out to lunch would be appreciated. The claim that there's nothing "wrong" in it makes me bristle. 1 disapprove but am almost ashamed to say so because I am called absurd, insecure and just plain childish. I wonder what the silent league — the secretaries' husbands — have to say? 1 am married to an executive, and this is my problem. I was formerly a secretary (hot his) and never found "business" to be the topic of conversation when my boss invited me to lunch. NOBODY'S FOOL DEAR NOBODYY'S: Lun c li- ing with one's boss is not in itself morally wrong but the attendant gossip can do much harm. Circumstances differ, however, and one must consider (he boss, the secretary, the place where they lunch and the frequency of the lunch dates. DEAR ABBY: Recently my husband's aunt and uncle from Canada were overnight guests at out home. They brought their own bed linen, towels and wash cloths. This has never happened to us before. Is it a custom of that country? We expect to visit them next spring. Do you think we are expected to do the same thing?

Your relatives probably carry (heir own linen for personal reasons. Don't lake yours when you visit them, DEAR ABBY: I really got mad when I read Howard's letter calling girls ''deceitful" because they padded themselves a little. If a girl doesn't have-"naturally curly hair, is she "deceitful" to gel a permanent? And if a girl doesn't have naturally red lips, is she "deceitful" to use a little li- stick? A better example yet: Is a girl "deceitful" to take a bath and put on deodorant and pretend she doesn't per.spire? DECEITFUL WASHINGTON, D.C, —Mrs. E. Lee Ozbirn is preach i ng conservation to clubwomen and practicing il on her, rolling-acreage: in the Southwest. ' " The new president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, "Katie" Ozbirn, is mobilizing her members— 5.5 million strong in .the U.S. for a crusade to save the soil and clean up the waters.

Leaders in gardening circles . from throughout the state are expected to attend the Brow nsville assembly. Headquarters will be the famous Fort Brown Memorial Center. District VI of Texas Garden Clubs will be host for the convention. For months valley area garden clubs have been laying plans under the leadership of Mrs. C. E.

"The national water problem is rapidly approaching the crisis ^sta^e," Mrs. Ozbirn warns. "Soil is another basic resource that must be protected and improved. I have chosen as the purpose of my administration 'Respons iWe, Responsive Citizenship for Survival,' and full and wise use of our natural resources is a must for survival." The GFWC,.which pioneered ifor conservation before the (urn of the centry. now take new leadership under t h e guiding glove of Mrs. Ozbirh. As a starter, she is presenting to each of the 50 state conservation chairmen an autographed copy of Sen. Robert S. Kerr's new book on "Land, . Wopd & Water." The pioneer flavor of the Senator's writing especially appealed - to her. ''The book is written in a fascinating, absorbing style," Mrs. Ozbirn recently wrote to clubwomen. "It is the kind of reading you do. not put down until the end. The shrinking of the world .has brought the word 'survival' into our thinking. Too many of us think only in terms of physical survival. We need to see to it that: the resources essentialfor economic strength survive. Senator Kerr's book, brings home the neglect of this fundament-a 1 doctrine, and I hope that all clubwomen will use the. book in their programs." Mrs. Ozrin is a spunky, versatile grandmother, a litt 1 e woman with big ideas. Fashionable and outspoken, she effectively promotes-' conservation on the rostrum and in private conversation. The daughter of a Texas pioneer doctor, she appears .equally at home in gingham housedress and bonnet, inspecting her treasured farm land which is a laboratory for „ conservation. "It was from my pioneer father that I first learned to love'the soil," she recalls affectionately. Ke gradu ally brought all the acreage' .he could afford. He • would often say, 'Daughter, don't ever sell your land,' Now, I keep it'for my children ant! grandchildren, and tell them the same thing.". This Week MONDAY 8 p.m. Music Study Club o!
