READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Golesburq Reqister-Moil, Golesbura. Pridoy, Oct 4, f?63 3 Dear Penny, My husband and 1 are divorced, and he hat recently remar. rted. We had ote child, a little boy now alee years old, and the court awarded me the custody of this child. His father pays see* part meeey for the boy, bat beyond that he has shown almost no interest in him. For this reason, 1 have tried very hard to fill the void and make the child feel kmd. Last week I attended the first P. T. A. meeting at my son 's •chant. After the meeting, 1 went to the teacher whom I already knew. While we were talking, my former husband 's new wife pushed her way forward and Introduced herself ns my son's mother, f was so humiliated that I feel t can never go back again, but yet 1 hate to have my child feel I am not Interested In his school activities, Should 1 drop a note to the teacher, or Just forget It, or what? PERPLEXED Deear Perplexed, There is no reason you should be embarrassed by the stupidity of someone else. If you already knew your son's teacher, she knows who the boy's mother really is. You would only be hurting your son by refusing to attend future meetings of P. T. A. While incidents like this can be embarrassing on the spur of the moment, I'm sure that if you consider it carefully you will realize that this woman is really only making herself look absurd. Dear Penny, In regard to the length (or lack of it) of the skirts the girts ere wearing. I agree that it should be up to the parents to send their girls out in public covered. I wholeheartedly disagree that schools should have anything to do with it. Parents are called "squares" by youngsters enough as It Is. I think schools and mothers should realize that styles are shorter now. I have yet to see a skirt that Is no longer than the shorts they wore during the summer. Some mothers complain about short skirts from their front doors, yet think nothing of letting their 13* and 14-year-olds date boys In cars and stay out past midnight. PARENT WHO CARES Dear Parent Who Cares, Yes, and there are parents who care who would neither let their daughters date at oo young an age, nor wear suggestive clothing. I did not say that I thought schools should not have any jurisdiction over such matters. I did say that I think it is not the school's responsibility to teach modesty and good taste. A parent should suggest, or decree if need be, that skirts, for school and dress should be of reasonable length. Even if it seems reasonable when she is standing, but hikes to mid-thigh when she's seated it's too short. Dear Penny, We recently had a death in our family, and I received many cards of sympathy. These meant a great deal to me, but I don't know how to go about acknowledging them. Should I write a note in return, or wait until I see the person? M. L. Dear M. L., If you will see the person in a reasonable length of time, you can thank them for their thoughtfulness then. If you feel like chatting on the phone for a few minutes, you can call and thank the sender. A note really is not a necessity, but of course it is never wrong to say "thank you," no matter how you do it. Personal to R. M. McC: Thank you for the poem. The thoughts in it are certainly worthy of remembering. Thinking of you ... ' Penny Send your qestions to Penny, In care of the Galesburg Register- Mail.

Because there pre no Karmann Ghia dealers. Only VW dealers. But what's the Karmann Ghia got to do with the Volkswagen? The answer is simplei The Karmann Ghiq's got a lot to do with a Volkswagen because that's what it is. It has VWs chassis and 4-speed synchro* mesh transmission and torsion bar suspension and oir-cooled won't-boil-over-or-freeze- up engine. It takes VW parts (except for the body) and VW service and regular gas in small amounts. (So it's as economical to run as a VW J The car you're looking at in this picture Is the VW Karmann Ghia Coup*. There's also a very neat little Ghia Convertible.

Prank A. Niffenegger of Marengo, said the belief is erroneous because the law of supply and demand will never return to agriculture in this country. New markets or controlled production are the answers to the country's agriculture problem, he told approximately 300 delegates gathered at the Custer Inn ballroom for the 92nd annual Illinois Grange convention. Use of insecticides, fertilizers, irrigation and the ability to produce has provided potential food and fiber that are exceeding consumption needs, he stated. "We must either find new markets abroad, or develop new uses that may consume our over-production, or we must control our production so that an abundant over-supply will not be a depressing factor upon agriculture prices," said Niffenegger, who is also a member of the Board of Agricultural Advisers and is vice chairman of the Illinois Highway Users Conference. If it is desirable to have large supplies of farm products for the sake of national welfare, the consumers should share the cost of such protection, the Orange executive continued. "Agriculture has neither the moral nor the economic responsibility to protect consumers against short* ages when such protection entails financial risk or less on the part of producers," he said. Niffenegger adhered to the theme outlined at a banquet Wednesday by Harry B. Caldwell, chairman of the executive committee of the National Grange. The depression of the early thirties would seem like a mild dip compared to what will happen if the government Stopped supporting agriculture prices and forced farmers to turn to the market place for a complete answer to their problems, the state master warned. Niffenegger was re-elected this morning by Grange delegates to a second 2-year term as state master. Other officers re-elected were Russell Stauffer, Dufand, overseer; Elizabeth Orr, Harvard, chosen as lecturer; Roy Shefsky, Geneseo, treasurer, and S. H. Wright, Belvedere, secretary. I Only new officer elected Rosemary Kirk, as chaplain, She is the daughter of former state master Dorsey Kirk. Miss Kirk replaced Lois Brown of dales' burg, who has served in the office the past six years and was not a candidate this year. Most of this morning's session was devoted to election of IS of * fleers with a masters conference, talent contest, and several reports slated for presentation tonight. The 4 -day convention closes Saturday after members vote on resolutions affecting current farm problems. This is the second time the Illinois Grange has convened in Galesburg, having met here first in 1954.
