Woman Of The Week FOR MORE than 25 years, Fern Young has I been an avid wrestling fan, and not many "meets" go by but what she is a spectator. Fern not only has an immediate family of wrestlers, but a brother, Howard Andrews, who now lives at Titonka, was an armed forces wrestling champion in France during World War I. Mrs. Young is the mother of Keith Young, a well-known wrestling coach at Cedar Falls High School. Keith graduated from the Algona High School in 1947 and it wasn't until his senior year that he "went out" for wrestling. This was also the first year that "Champ" Martin came to Algona, and he came close to discouraging Keith from wrestling so late in high school. Mr. and Mrs. Young followed their son's wrestling career through the four .years he attended the then Iowa State Teachers College at Cedar Falls where he had three collegiate championships and three national AAU championships. They traveled to Pennsylvania, New York, Colorado, Cedar Rapids and two times to Cedar'Falls for national events, and Keith has never been beaten in a dual meet. Following his graduation from college, Keith went to Blue Earth as "their wrestling coach for three years, then on to Osage for one year before going to Cedar Falls High School. The Youngs watched their son's coaching career closely and attended many of his team duals^ as well as tournaments. The proudest moment for Mrs. Young was when Keith was nominated to the Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1961 and received his certificate at Ithica, N.Y. for his "Noteworthy Achievement In Amateur Wrestling." He is the only Algonan, to date, to enter the Wrestling Hall of Fame. Another son of the Youngs, Dixon, did some high school wrestling, but did not pursue the career. However, the Dixon Young's son, Clinton, wrestles for the University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, where he is now a senior. He was a 145 lb. state champion for Algona High Schqpl. Two nephews also wrestled for, Algona High and she now waits for: three smaller grandsons to grow and "make the team." In the meantime, weather permitting, she planned to look for someone to drive her car to Ames Saturday for the finals in the State Wrestling Tournament. Fern works at the BerthaGod- frey elementary school a few hours each day as a teachers' aide and enjoys crocheting as ~ VirtV»Vnr So when you go to the next wrestling meet, look around - F f™ wil] te ther e - watching with the quiet look of a professional critique.

Inc.] ;•• DEAR ABBY: My daughter and I are in total disagreement over a matter I wish you would settle Becky [made-up name] is 19, wh jch makes her an authority on everything. She attends college away from home. Becky now goes braless and says most of her girlfriends do, too. When Becky was home for vacation she wore a bra only as a concession to me, but she wasn't happy about it. I should explain that Becky is full-bosomed. I told Becky that common sense should tell her that a full-bosomed girl needs to wear a bra for support, and if she goes without that support, in time all her muscles and tissues will be stretched and broken down and she will look like an old cow. Becky says I am all wrong and old-fashioned Abby, will you please tell her? She won't listen to me and I don't want to be in a position of telling her, "I told you so, if she winds up wearing a size 42 Quadruple F cup by the time she's 30. If I am wrong I will shut up. But if I'm right, I'd like her to find'out before it is too late. MIDWEST MOM DEAR MOM: If Becky's bra size is 34 E or larger, she needs a bra for support. [P. S. More women look like "old cows" because they wore ill-fitting bras rather than none at all.] DEAR ABBY: Please tell me who is right. I have a teen-age daughter who will soon be ready for dating. I have a sister in law who has a daughter the same age. We were talking, and I told my sister in law that if a boy ever tried to take my daughter's virtue against her will, I would rather have her submit and come out of it unharmed , than to put up a struggle and perhaps get killed. Even if my daughter were to become pregnant we could bear it together, but I would rather have my daughter alive in any shape. My sister in law thinks I am out of my mind. What's your opinion? A LOVING MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: I don't think you and your sister in law are communicating. I am sure your sister in law would rather have her daughter "alive in any shape," too. But if she actually would rather see her daughter dead than the living victim of a rapist, I think she cou'd be out of her mind. DEAR ABBY: I'd like to make a comment on the My Lai incident: I served in Viet Nam at the same time as Lt. Calley. [Same division, same brigade, but different battalion.] What that man and his men are being tried for was, and probably still is, an everyday occurrence over there. I have seen so many of those peaceful people murdered, raped and beaten I thought I'd go crazy before I got out of that country. No single similar occurrence in my unit was on so large a scale as My Lai, but if-I were to total all the men, women and children we shot because they looked like V. C. in the age group between 15 and 40 or were too scared to stand still . when we approached, you could double the number as were killed at My Lai. I am not defending Lt. Calley, I am only saying that if the Army and the people must judge that man and his men then they had better judge me and the three million other men that pulled time in that hell-hole. I learned one thing. Life over there is no more worth the time and effort it takes to pull the trigger. BEEN THERE DEAR BEEN: Thank you, soldier. And to the American people as a whole, I say, "Judge not lest ye be judged!"
