MONDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1970 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Perfect Attendance Pins Report to HELEN HELP US! -by Helen Bottel It May Be A Long Wait Dear Helen: I have been separated 10 years, and was finally divorced last year. In all that time, I never dated, as I was busy raising the children. But now they're grown and married, and Pm a young 50, ready for still another life. My son-in-law brought over his business partner, thinking to help me out. My daughter also has a man in mind for me. But Helen, they aren't exactly my ideals. One is short, the other looks 20 years older than me, though he's only 55. My loving children tell me I'm too particular, but I know what I want. He should be at least five feet nine, fairly good looking, and MUST have hair I I met such a man at a bowling party. We danced together, but he didn't get my phone number. Fmafraidhe is married, hist having an evening out. He was SO handsome 1 . With him in mind, I can't bringmyself to go out with those "ordinaries" my kids bring around. Am I really living in a dream world, searching for a fairy tale man, as they say? — GINA Dear Gina: If. a tall handsome man with hair is ALL you want, then I don't think you've learned much in your "single" years. MY IGAP tells me you divorced such a man, right? Why not give the "ordinaries" a chance? Good lookers sometimes aren't good lasters. — H. Dear Helen: Why is it that men can go hunting in the wilderness, and survive just great without their little wives ministering to their every want? But at home — they're lost souls without Mama. « I can't go on^ short vacation unless I prepare weeks in advance, write down instructions for turning on the oven, arrange for the laundry to be done and the house cleaned. My husband can't even prepare a TV dinner by himself -- at home. When I get back, there are dirty dishes piled in the sink and all over the kitchen. The bed is unmade and the garbage hasn't been taken out in a week. Husband? He's lost in the shuffle of old newspapers: unshaven, dirty, hungry — with the TV log in his hand. What makes men so self-sufficient on campin trips and so helpless when they are wifeless in their own domain? --HUNTING AND FISHING WIDOW Dear Widow: Maybe it's because they want to let wives know how important we are to them. Or maybe it's just more fun (a matter of survival perhaps) fending for themselves in the wilderness. — H. Dear Helen: Pants suits to work? Great I Even nurses are allowed to wear white pants suits now. With all the bending, etc. it's high time they lowered the requirements. (The thigh's the limit for sick men!) Recently the leading door-to-door cosmetic sales company okayed pants suits for its saleswomen -- and when sellers of beauty supplies are allowed such wear, it must be accepted uni versaUy. A few banks and government offices are still hold-outs, but they'll come to pants before long. This is a style that is feminine and practical — and so much better looking than the midid-boot monstrosities. Hip hip hooray for pants, say II — SYLVIA 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. Address Helen Bottel in care of THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE.

But think of it this way: Christmas Is so important that we actually count time from its inception. Eternal life for mankind began with that first Christmas nearly 2,000 years ago.

Main Street Hoosier high school pupils appear to be reluctant to have the United States make further commitments in the Middle East. At the recent Debaters' Conference and Student Legislative Assembly four bills were introduced to increase aid to Israel, but only one passed. The high school legislators also decided that laws concerning abuse of the United States flag are too difficult to enforce, and, therefore, they would abolish all penalties. They also sought stronger measures to deal with air and water pollution, and took cognizance of poverty problems without arriving at clearcut decisions. Life is Worth Living Guard Yourselves Christmas will be brighter for some underprivileged children in Lafayette, thanks to the deft hands of some Purdue University coeds. The northwest unit of Meredith HaU, a women's residence, has been busy since before Thanksgiving making stuffed animals for children at the Lincoln Community Center. The girls contributed scraps of felt, corduroy and cotton, which they have sewn together and stuffed with soybeans donated by Ralston-Purina. The result has been colorful mice, owls, frogs and turtles. Home From Hospital Miss Waite Clouser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Clouser, is recovering at her home following major surgery at the Tipton County hospital. Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. (Luke 12:15) A man approached Jesus one day and asked him to speak to his brother because the brother would not divide the property with him which his father had left. JesUs informed the man that he did not have the right to judge or divide the property between them. He also warned the man to watch himself and be on guard that he not become greedy. "A man's true life is not made up of the things he owns, no matter how rich he may be." You can work and save and build up material wealth that may make you look rich to the world around you but in the eyes of God you are a pauper. . In all your busyness you have neglected your souls salvation and God says, "Thou fool! Tonight your life may end then what good will these things be to you?" Stop for a monent and take a look at yourselves. Be on constant guard against greed, pride IT'S A GIRL!
