My husband's real mother died when he was small. His father's aunt raised him as her own, and he always called her "Mom," though she was really his great-aunt. Well, she had a daughter, who became my father's wife — my stepmother. . .who called my husband her brother. So, my father and I have the same mother-in-law. My father is my husband's brother-in-law, and my stepmother is his sister. (My husband is my uncle??) We've learned to live with this, but it's hard trying to explain the relationships to our children. But do you think it's right for my stepmother, when she introduces us to perfect strangers, to say, "I would like you to meet our daughter and my brother, Mr. and Mrs.S.?* We get very strange looks, and even if we try to explain, we only make it worse. Inasmuch as my husband was never legally adopted by his great-aunt, couldn't she just say "our daughter and son-in-law"? (Except she won'tl) She's another problem in herself, but we won't go into that! —TEASED. "NIECE" Dear Niece: Inasmuch as your step-mother enjoys confusing people, why not come back with a smile and a quip that may stop her cold: "Well, Mother, that's what you get for marrying your brother's father (-in-law)." (Especially if you say "in-law" under your breath.) -H. Dear Helen: Please tell us again the difference between second cousin and cousin-once-removed. —W.T.K. DearW.: • After the first time in this column, your question is "relatively" simple: Children of first cousins are second cousins. A cousin-once-removed is your first cousin's child. Another way to put it — second cousins are of the same generation, while cousins-once-removed are separated by one generation. —H. Dear Helen: Again this year we read horror stories about the awful tricks played on Halloween trick-or-treaters, supposedly by adults who resent their "begging." Poisoned candy, razor blades and pins in apples, even shot gun blasts and oil or acid thrown on kids who come to the door — these things can frighten parents into padlocking their children inside on that traditional night. I wonder how much of this is true and how much hearsay? Would people really risk being prosecuted or exposed as "inhuman child torturers" just because they're basically mean? After all, those apples can be traced. If children become sick on adulterated candy, you'd better believe everyone on the block will be investigated. We tend to believe everything we hear — and often it gets into print because reporters don't take time to check. I for one would like to read a follow-up story about the atrocity items which came out the day after Halloween. (Bet we'd learn things aren't as bad as they seem!)—DOUBTFUL Dear Doubtful: I too. . . .Which reminds me of a wonderful letter I received about eight Halloweens ago, from a mother whose daughter was given "burning hot pennies." I printed the letter, with condolences, . and discovered from my more informed readers that "warm . pennies were for luck," an old Scotch custom. —H. This column is dedicated to family living, so if you're having kid trouble or just plain trouble, let Helen help YOU. She will also welcome your own amusing experiences.

(Psalm 34:14) Living in a world of turmoil, one wonders if there is any inner peace to be found. Today's rebellion, drug abuse problems, increased crime and other conflicts poses a question as to where did mankind lose sight of the wonderful part of life...thatof love, peace and happiness. Christ came into the world to bring peace to all mankind. He made the greatest sacrifice of all to bring man and God together in a perfect relationship. Have^ we discounted His sacrifice. His • love and compassion for the world and replaced it with self-centeredness, self-pity and self-glory? We can gain the whole world through material possessions and prestige.

Mrs. Anna Bailey, of Pickard, is the pater ml great grandmother. ested only in these things soon develop the characteristics of greediness, selfishness and pride. They lack the important attributes of humility and compassion towards others. There is a song which says, "let there be peace and let it begin with me." How true these words are for peace cannot come into the world until the individual persons find inner peace and acceptance of self. The search for peace comes first by inner soul searching. . .by realizing our place in the Kingdom of God and accepting Christ as the center part of our lives. If we have no peace, then the time is now to search deep and pursue the^ course laid out for us by "God. ->For it is in knowing God, . .in relying upon His wisdom and direction that we know ourselves and our purpose in this life. It is in walking hand in hand with Christ that leads to the pathway of peace, strength and happiness.
