Woman Of The Week FOR 28 YEARS Clara Wyatt and her husband, Bill, a state park ofticer, have lived in the beauty of our state parks. This enjoyable employment was decided upon after he had spent eight years as superintendent of the State Forest Nursery at Ames and in those 28 years they have lived at Pammel State Park in Winterset, Lake of Three Fires, Bedford and Lake Darling at Brighton before coming to Algona, the smallest park of all, six years ago. Clara was born at Villisca, la. and being the daughte r of a M etho- dist minister, the family moved from time to time. Her father, Rev. Ivan R. Mills, retired from the ministry while they were living at Adair and was a member of the legislature from Adair county. It was while they were living at Colo that Clara graduated from high school, then attended Simpson College, from which she graduated with a commercial degree. She was a commercial teacher at Hayfield for two years prior to her marriage; then in 1942, during World War II, she returned to that profession for more than seven years and taught at Kelley, Jordan and Colo. Teaching is not the only thing that Clara has done outside her home. While they were living at Winterset she was bookkeeper at International Harvester and at Bedford she was secretary to the school superintendent. In Ames she worked as cashier at Montgomery Ward and Co., so she has not been "just a housewife." The Wyatts have two sons, William K., Jr. who has retired wmmmm - , , from 20 years service with the U.S. Navy and now works as a letter carrier with the postal department at Norfolk, va., and George R. of Smyrna, Ga. They have two granddaughters. Hobbies? Yes, Clara takes time to enjoy cooking, fancy work and like her husband, is a "rock hound." He makes jewelry from these beautiful stones and Clara helps considerably with this operation.

Widower: I'm over 60 and in love with girl, 18 By Abigail Van Buren (ID mi by ChlMfo Trlbuiu-N. Y. N«M Srn«., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: Please help me. I am a widower and very much in love with an 18-year-old girl. Altho I am over 60, the difference in our ages doesn't matter, as the girl is very mature for her age and I am in the best of health. But here is my problem. My son is trying to break us up. He tries to tell me that this girl is too young for me, that she Is only after my money. He's tried to turn me against her, but I think he is trying to get her for himself. First he tried to make her look bad in my eyes, and when that didn't work, he tried to make ME look bad in HER eyes. How can I get this girl to marry me before my son ruins everything between us? I don't want to lose her.— DAD DEAR DAD: A long engagement would be to yonr advantage. Don't worry about "losing" the girl. If lt'§ the real thing, it will stand the test of time. And if it's not, you're •head to find out early. DEAR ABBY: You will never believe this, but it ia the truth: We received an announcement of the marriage of the son of old friends of ours. The last time we saw the lad he was 16. He and his bride live in another state where he Is studying law and the bride is working for her Master's degree. Not knowing what they needed, but wanting to send them something useful, we sent a generous check with our letter of congratulations. We received no note of thanks from this couple. However, when my canceled checks were returned from the bank I found that fhe young man had CASHED our check the day he received it, and ON the check he had written "Thank you." This was a new one for us?— CINCY READER DEAR READER: For me, too! DEAR ABBY: I am a man who has been divorced for a year Since then I have dated women who have no children and women who have had up to five children. When my friends hear that I'm dating a woman with children they have been unanimous in their opinions that I should avo'd getting involved with a woman who has a ready-made family. Maybe I'm, a weirdo, Abby. but I feel that children are an asset to a woman, not a liability. When I remarry, I hope the woman has a family, and the more the merrier. Children can add strength and purpose to a relationship. So far I haven't been .able to find anyone who agrees with me. How do you feel?— LOVES CHILDREN DEAR LOVES: With your attitude, you should have a wide selection. In fact, you should have an open field as there Is apt to IMS very Httle competition. Raising children is expensive fa, terms of money and emotions. If yon can afford them, I say more power to yon . I think you're generous. courageous and one in a million.
