Mrs Wilson recently wrote to The Associated Press "When I read in this morning's paper about President Reagan's Missing Children's Act it gave me a new The bill signed by Reagan in October permits parents to ask the FBI if the name of their missing child is in its computer files If local police decline to enter the name the act permits parents to do so on their own "Oh I dream about her quite often I know what she hasn't changed" Mrs Wilson said gazing at the last school picture of her daughter "She'd be tall and headstrong spoiled you know" Leslie Renee Wilson set out with two friends on an afternoon of Christmas shopping at Seminary South shopping mall Dec 23 1974 She instructed her mother "in no uncertain terms" to pick her up at her great-grandmother's house at 4 pm "We were going to a party" Mrs Wilson said "I know she intended to be there" Police never had many clues to the disappearance of Leslie and her friends Mary Rachel Trlica 17 and Julie Mosely 9 Investigators first assumed the girls had run away A few days later after they vanished a note mailed to Tommy Trlica Mary Rachel's husband of six months 0 seemed to support that theory know I'm going to catch it but we just had to get away" the penciled note said "We're going to Houston See you in about a week The car is in Sears upper lot" Mary Rachel's name was misspelled and FBI handwriting experts could not confirm if she had written the letter But the car was where the note said it would be Inside were gifts the girls had bought and a pair of blue jeans taslie had gotten out of layaway The car was not dusted for fingerprints because officers did not think they were dealing with a crime could have told you that night that they hadn't run away" Mrs Wilson said "Leslie wanted to go to that party And no 9-year-old is going to run off two days before Christmas Everybody knows that The families of the missing girls have sent 70000 handbills with their daughters' photographs throughout the United States Mexico and Canada They sent the pictures to 45 newspapers They hired a private investigator and followed up every tip from seers and psychics who claimed to know where the children went or where their bodies could be found "We went around knocking on people's doors asking them to let us look in their basements We went out to a field in West Texas we dug in ditches all over the place and looked up and down creek beds I have no idea how much money we spent" Mrs Wilson said Finally police turned the case over to the homicide detectives Major Case Investigator George Hudson has helped look for the girls for seven years He has a file almost two feet thick full of leads that went nowhere "Probably the only way we'll ever solve this thing is if somebody just comes forward and says what happened to them" Hudson said "There's no evidence no nothing" Last year bits of human skeletons were discovered in a swamp near the southeast Texas town of Alvin Hudson a team of convicts from the state prison and dozens of volunteers dug in the muck for two months finally finding enough teeth in April 1981 to identify the bodies They were two girls from Dickinson Georgia Geer 14 and Brooks Bracewell 12 They also had vanished in 1974 "It was a relief that it wasn't Leslie but you know it was well at least those other girls' families know what happened to them" Mrs Wilson said Mrs Wilson and her husband Richard have tried to go on Three years ago they finally threw away Leslie's old clothes gave her bedroom furniture to her cousin and put the rest of her belongings in the attic with the Christinas gifts "I'd be so grateful I just can't tell you how grateful if someone would tell me what happened" Mrs Wilson says "I dream about her so often I just have to NOTICE OF TUUSTtES'S SAU TSSS744AP On January II ISA) al 1030am INST AMERKAN TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY a CaMama carparahan ALL-INCLUSIVE aa Trualaa ar Trad aaacikad by WESTERN SIENNA FINANCE CORPORATION ank racarkak SapNinkir 24 1N0 aa Inairumaal Na SS-2IS4IS al Othcwl tacarka al laa Rarrarikna Caunly CaMatad and punuaM that curiam Nakca al Dalaull Udraunkar racarm AuruM 1RS2 aa kdlraadnl Na IM 35120 al Official Racarka al aad Caunly aak unkar and purauaal aad Dm al Trual at pukhcauctian lar caah dtkul manay al Ud Unkak Slalaa al Amarca a caduary chack payakd la aad Trudaa aaa an a data ar uuinia and Iran aaaaciatian kamredak ur Out data lha north antranca lha Fad Amancan TAM lukkini ItciNd 323 Wad Cant!

friends Assuming it was to be a social function I asked if we could bring something and was told "Just bring yourselves" Upon our arrival much to our surprise we found it was a commercial promotion! We had absolutely no interest in any of these household products since I am retired and financially secure and we have everything we need We politely endured the sales pitch and left at the earliest possible moment It has since disturbed us to think that even casual friends would try to use us In this way We do not want to get trapped in such a get-together again and would be interested in your response to the following questions: 1 What are your feelings relative to this practice? 2 How can one determine what type of "party" is planned? 3 Would we have been justified in leaving as soon as we knew it was a commercial affair? Sign us MISLED IN NC DEAR MISLED: 1 tacky 2 Ask 3 Yes DEAR ABBY: What is your opinion of a doctor who would tell a patient that he had only three or four more months to live? Don't you think the doctor should have told the family first and the family should have decided whether or not the patient should have been told? Do you think the patient would or would not give up the fight to live if he knew that he was going todie? NEEDS YOUR OPINION DEAR NEEDS: There is no hard and fast rales for off patients I believe the patient has the right to know what his chances are Nobody "knows" how long a life is going to be A doctor may predict but he for certain DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a serious difference of opinion Tom's father is very very ill He's been hospitalized since May and is rarely coherent Tom is an only child and his mother didn't stay around to raise him so he and his father are extremely close Tom was brought up in the country and spent many happy times hunting with his father His father built a special cabinet for his large gun collection Some of these guns are old and have a lot of sentimental value for Tom We live in the city and don't have a lot of spare room After Tom's father dies we will inherit those guns Abby I do not want guns in our house! Tom does What do you say?
