Dear Cinderella' By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: This is for the 14-year-old girl who signed herself "FEELS LIKE CINDERELLA" because she had a 12 o'clock curfew on all dates: I am also 14 and I am not permitted to date at all! My parents say I can't date until I am 1G and 1 don't think they are "strict and old-fashioned". They are doing this for my own good and 1 love them for it. PLENTY OF TIME (IIUNTSVILLE, ALA.) DEAR ABBY: Maybe "Cinderella" would be interested in knowing that 1 am 17 and am not allowed to stay out later than 11:30 unless it is a very special occasion. What can a 14-year-old girl do after II o'clock besides park somewhere? I agree with you, Abby. No girl that age should stay out past 11. "17 AND MALE" (STOCKTON, CALIF.) DEAR ABBY: Please tell "CINDERELLA" this: I am 15 and just started to car date. Last Friday night 1 went out with a 17-ytar-old boy. Just as we were leaving my house, Eco Group Has Meeting Mrs. June Jones and Mrs. Geneva Franklin were hostesses Monday for the second meeting of the year of Lamar County Home Economics Association in the Paris Junior College.

Fall Fashion Texana Top/c "Fashion does take time and thought and preparation, and accessorizing a costume is just as important as the costume itself," Mrs. Herbert Bland of the Collegiate Shoppe told members of the Texana Study Club, Monday night. At the meeting, held at the home of Mrs. Clark Est e s, Jr., 814-lst SW, the progr a m director, Mrs. Wayne Wilson, assisted the guest speaker by modeling new fall models for wear from early morning to evening. Mrs. Bland pointed out that fashion this fall has the look of elegance but at the same time, is relaxed and easy. Refreshments were served to 17 members. Opening devotions were conducted by Mrs. Jack R. Eubank. Members were reminded to bring usable clothing for charity distribution to the • next meeting, October 24, at the home of Mrs. Ralph Webb. my mother said, "Be in by twelve." My date said, "She'll be in by 11 because I have to be by 11:30. WORSE THAN CINDERELLA (WITEELING.G W.VA.) DEAR ABBY: In the fairy tale "Cinderella", little "Cindy" lost her slipper, he modern 14-year-old Cinderella who complained because she had to be home by midnight could eventually lose her head, "PRINCE CHARMING" (Tong-Duchon-Ni, Korea) DEAR ARDY: I have news for Cinderella. If she is only 14 and can stay out until midnight, she is growing up much loo fast. I am 14 and have to be in bed w i t h lights ou t by 9:30 every night. I think you will find that girls who get a reputation for being fast are the ones who started to date early. WILLING TO WAIT (ANCHORAGE,ALASKA) t DEAR ABBY: I am 20 and am engaged to be married in Ju:ic to a boy who is 21. We both live in this city and attend the local college here. He is allowed to come to my house only three nig ~, a week and he has to be out of the house by 10:30. If we date, I must be home by midnight. I don't think my parents are unreasonable. T realize they made these restrictions because they know what's best for me and 1 am grateful. WILL HAVE A WHITE WEDDING (DENVER, COLO.) DEAR ABBY: Regarding "Cinderella" and her "strict, old-fashioned" parents. She should thank God for parents who care enough about her to put a time limit on her dates. I didn't turn into a "pumpkin", I turned into something much worse, because I was— TURNED LOOSE AT 13 (PONTIAC, MICH.) DEAR ABBY: Tell "Cinderella" I am 19 and a sophomore in college and I have to be in at 12 on weekends and earlier on week nights. The boys don't mind. At least it hasn't hurt my popularity any.

T2, I960 — AMERICA. UNDISCOVERED? But for a Woman, Columbus May Have Remained Home IIAYLEY WILLS, whose family is all in the theater, is headed for stardom in Walt Disney's "Petticoats and Bluejeans" and "Pollyanna." LYDIA LANE Hayley Mills Relates British Teen Ideas HOLLYWOOD — London's Hayley Mills made such a favorable impression as the Pollyanna girl that Walt Disney quickly starred her in another picture, "Petticoats and Blue- jeans." It isn't often that the pleasure of meeting a British teen-ager is afforded so I was anticipating our meeting. Hayley appeared in the commissary without make-up—not even lipstick. When I mentioned it to her she replied: "There is plenty of time for that later. It's something I can look forward to." 1 encouraged her to compare life in America with England and asked her what she misses most when she is here. "We have a country place in Sussex, and I miss the spring water. And I miss the vegetables we grow there for they seem to have a different taste. And my hair shampoos much better over there because the water is not hard. "And I think the parents here aren't nearly as strict as they are at home," Hayley went on. "I see cars full of teen-agers riding around at night unescorted. And the Mr. and Mrs. Vanderburg Note Golden Anniversary drive-ins are crowded with them. We would not be allowed to be out alone." As Hayley carefully trimmed the fat' from her steak she said, "They serve such large portions here that when we have dinner in our hotel rooms, we order one serving for two. "I think perhaps thai is why so many people here are dieting," she added thoughtfully. I asked Hayley if she had any teen-age problems. "Luckily I have never had a bad skin, but I do get spots now and then when I have things I shouldn't such as candy, fizz drinks and doughnuts. But if I wash my face with a medicated soap and eat properly I don't have them. "And mother makes me go to the dentist every three months," she volunteered. "If there is anything wrong with my teeth, my dentist will take care of them right away." "And do you have any advice for other teen-aged girls?" I asked. "When you are trying to impress a boy or someone you want to like you very much, you can make a false impression if you try too hard. If you relax and just be yourself, you make friends more quickly," Hayley concluded. By JOY MILLER AP Women's Editor NEW YORK UP) — As every husband has been told, back of each successful man there stands a woman. She may be pretty far back sometimes, but she's there just the same. In the case of Christopher Columbus—whose great ven- tuurc is being commemorated Wednesday—it was not a wife but a queen who stood behind him. This is common knowledge among school children, along with the fact she offered to pawn her jewels to finance him. Some other things about the queen are not so well known. Queen Isabella was a deeply pious, intelligent, strongmind- ed woman with a determined chin. An authentic portrait shows her, with two determined chins, in fact, and rather forbidding jowls. She was also red-haired, like Columbus. The two met in their mid-thirties. He had come to Spain from Portugal where his wife had died, leaving him with a small son. Although Isabella shared Columbus' dream of discovery, she kept him dangling six years while she took care of •another project; cleaning out the Moors. They had conquered Spain 800 years before, but by her reign had been driven back to Granada. Isabella was the woman crusader of her day, and thousands of knights over Europe flocked to her banner. In armor, astride 3 white charger, often as not pregnant, Isabella would lead her troops against the infidel. On FLOWER JUDGE SET FOR TALK Mrs. Murray G.

RECKUSS COME WIN A FREE TURKEY Free Turkey Given Away Every Night by Lucky Ticket Number the plains in Spain, she nearly lost her life when fire lapped at her silken tents. She had them replaced with solid masonry and went on with the siege of Grenada. When the Moors were beaten and the keys to the city handed over to her, she summoned Columbus, who had been following her up and down Spain trying to get in a word now and then. King Ferdinand, Isabella's spouse, was never very keen about Columbus, but he had long since given up opposing his stronger-willed queen. Early in their marriage, which united Castile and Aragon, he made the mistake of assuming her title to Castile a mere formality. So she got her way about Columbus, In April 1492, Isa- bella and Ferdinand made an agreement with Columbus. He set sail in August, sighted land off San Salvador on October 12. On his second voyage the next year she : sent along a number of priests to convert the pagans in the new lands. When Indians were brought back as slaves, she indignantly ordered them released and shipped home. In her will, read following her death only three weeks after Columbus returned a broken man from his fourth and last voyage, Isabella made a special petition for kindly treatment of the Indians. She didn't mention Columbus. Isabella had been a good influence on the court, on her troops, on bullfighting, and on convents.
