Dear Penny, I have liked • buy for several months, but f think we should •K>P teeing each other. How can 1 break up with him without having him and hit friends think t "dropped" him? I would like to remain friends with him. We are not going steady, but 1 mutt do it tactfully go 1 won't hurt him. L.H. Dear L.H., It is a very difficult thing to break up with someone you have been dating without hurting his feelings. Possibly the best way to accomplish this would be to flatter your boyfriend by telling him that you are afraid you are getting too serious about him. Tell him that for the good of both of you, you feel it would be best not to see each other anymore at least for a while. This should enable him to keep from losing face with his friends. Dear Penny, After being married to a fellow for eight yean, I came home from work one day and found he bad departed leaving only a note saying he had grown tired of making things work. Would you say he has someone else on the string? We didn't have very many bills to take care of. What I would like to know Is when Is the time to take your wedding rings off if you think everything Is over? YOU TELL ME Dear Y.T.M., You can remove your wedding ring at any time after the divorce when you are anxious to make it known that you are available again. However, it seems flke a shame to let eight years of marriage go down the drain with no effort to save it. If you are interested in •aving your marriage, why not make some effort to get together and work out your differences? Just taking off your wedding ring doesn't solve anything I Dear Penny, I am 21 and I believe I am in love with a man of 46. Do you think that this Is wrong? Would people ridicule us if we were married? Do marriages with this much age difference ever work out? If you can see faults in a man can you really be in love? CONFUSED Dear Confused, Yes, marriages with this much age difference have been known to work, but you should be aware of the problems it would present. While you are young and likely to enjoy going out, this man would most likely be content to stay home because he's already passed the exuberance of youth. Too, if you were to have children, you must realize that this man would be elderly by the time the children were in their mid-teens and needing the counsel of a father. There would be a greater chance of being widowed at a young age and having children to raise by yourself. Oftentimes when a young person is attracted to a person so much older, it is because they are looking for a parent-substitute more than a mate. To answer your last question, it is possible to see the faults in a person and still be in love, but at 21 it is more likely that when you really do fall in love, the guy will look like the proverbial knight in shining armor—completely free of the faults of mere mortals. Better think it over carefully before the armor rusts! Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, in care of the Galesburg Register-Mail.

Sliries of the district convention in Ottawa Eagles Hit By Injuries Once More By United Press International The Philadelphia Eagles, who were known around the National Football League circuit last year as the "broken bone brigade," are at it again. Fullback Clarence Peaks, the Eagles' leading ball-carrier in 1960 and 1961, suffered an elbow injury in the Eagle - Baltimore Colt clash last Saturday night. Although Peaks was originally expected to be out of action for three weeks, further examination showed a chipped fracture of the ulna bone on the left arm. As a result the Eagles, whose Staggering injury list last year was a major factor in tlw club's plunge to the Western Division cellar after a second-place finish in 1961, will lose Peak's services for approximately six weeks. The Detroit Lions inserted flankerback Terry Barr at quarterback in Monday's workout. The reason for the move was to provide a back-up man for Earl Morrall in case of injury. Milt Plum, the Lions' regular signal- caller was injured in Saturday's game with the Cleveland Browns. Detroit also placed rookies Pete O'Brien, Karl Kassulke and Don King on waivers. View Game Films Coach Al Sherman of the New York Giants, who meet the Lions in the first game of a doubleheader at Cleveland Saturday night, was particularly pleased with the play of veteran back Hugh McElhenney in Saturday's game with the Chicago Bears after viewing game films Monday. Another veteran, Alex Webster, also was praised by Sherman. The Cleveland Browns' head coach, Blanton Collier, also spent Monday watching game films, and said he was "much more encouraged" over the team's progress. He added that the defensive line did "an exceptional job" in last Saturday's Browns - Lions game. Although coach Buddy Parker's Pittsburgh Steelers were soundly whipped by the Green Bay Packers last Saturday night, Parker was philosophical about the defeat. "You don't spot the champions two weeks of practice and a game and expect to beat them," he said. In other NFL developments the Baltimore Colts released Dave Yohn, second-year linebacker, and the Los Angeles Rams cut six rookies—Gerald Barto, Dick Farris, Earl McQuiston, Walter Nikirk, Dennis Murphy and Harold Daniels — in addition to veteran Clancy Osborne. Cleared For Action The Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League reported that Bobby Ply would see action in Saturday's game with Oakland although Ply's nose was broken during Friday night's game with Buffalo.

Dave Smith, reserve fullback of the Houston Oilers, suffered a slight muscle spasm but is expected to see action in Wednesday night's game with the Boston Patriots. The Pats, meanwhile, cut center Bob Dentel and defensive end Jay Donovan. Since the releases left Boston with only one center, coach Mike Holovak is trying tackle Jerry De Lucca and offensive guard Tony Sardisco at the center position. The New York Jets released safety Ed Kovac, tackle Frank Morelli (both of whom played for the Titans last year) and linebacker Frank Robotti. Center Mike Hudock and fullback Bill Mathis, who were injured last Friday night against Houston, should be ready for Friday night's game with Buffalo. were shown by Mrs. Clyde Sherman.

The following will be deemed as acceptable for dress by Abingdon High School students: Boys — Trousers which should have belts are expected to be accompanied by a belt at all times. Shirts, whether poncho style or not, are expected to be buttoned up and tucked into trousers. Ruled for Girls Girls — The only acceptable dress for girls are dresses or skirts with blouses or sweaters. Culottes, slacks and. other sportswear are not acceptable dress. Skirt hemlines should be knee length. Sun dresses or spaghetti- strap dresses are not in keeping with good taste for school or school activities at home or away. According to officials, for the most part, the school is judged by strangers and guests by ap pearance and actions of students It is far easier to destroy a good reputation than to rebuild a poor one, school officials said. Thus, the aim is by use of good judgment and discretion in stu dent dress and actions to tnain tain the good reputation present ly held by the school, the board concluded.
