woman If you should drive to Smith Lake most any evening or on the weekends, you would no doubt find Betty Peterson standing in the water someplace around the lake doing what she most enjoys, fly-fishing. To be able to cast that line out with the grace and ease that Betty does, is not something that one learns in one fishing trip. Her professional ability has been acquired through 15 years of constant practice. Prior to this, she used a rod and reel, like the majority of women. It is hard to believe that this gal had never done any fishing before she and her husband were married, almost 23 years ago. Like she said, fishing and hunting were very important things in his life, and she felt if she was going to have to share him with these, it was better to learn how to do both, so she did. Not only did she learn, but she learned well. Although they do a lot of fishing, it is mostly for the sport. When one uses a fly rod and dry bait, the fish are usually just hooked in the lip, so are easily released and thrown back without being hurt. This is how the Petersons enjoy the sport. Unless, however, someone is hungry for a fish sandwich, then they keep a few. An avid fly-fisherman is also one who is extremely fussy about the type of bait he uses, and many tie their own flies. To the layman, the bright pretty ones should do the best job of attracting the fish, but not so with the professional. You use the one that matches closely what the fish are feeding on at the time. If you go after the Rainbow and Brown Trout as the Petersons do in the streams on the south shore of Lake Superior, in Northern Wisconsin, you cut open the first fish caught to see what kind of insects are in its stomach, and then use bait similar in appearance. Fishing is enjoyed by the entire Peterson family, including Dawn, 16 and Allan, who is seven. Last winter Allan was learning to fly-fish in the basement with a kit scientifically built for this purpose and his mother said he is a good student, rapidly learning. Dawn, who is a sophomore at Algona High, enjoys going after the Bluegill with her flyrod. This family travels to Northern Minnesota to fish and also enjoys camping. They have a canoe and a "Jon" boat (one that is flat on both ends). Now, this woman has not stopped at just learning to fish, but is also a hunter, preferably for ducks. She has won two trophies for trap shooting and enjoys skeet, also. The family has had a membership in the Cedar Valley Archery club at Mason City where Dawn has excelled and has many trophies. Betty was born at LuVerneand moved to Algona with her parents when she was in the fifth grade. She graduated from Algona-High and her name was Betty Scribner before she and Bob were married. He is a native of Corwith. She has been employed with the Algona Bookkeeping and Tax Service and this week starts a new job as Office Manager at the new Brougham Industries.

News Syni., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: I am engaged to a veteran who may be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. I am in love with John [I think] but I have so many doubts. I have always dreamed of a lovely wedding, and I love children, and have always pictured family outings with my children romping about with their mother and father. I have always loved skiing, swimming, tennis. How does a wife enjoy these sports with a husband in a wheelchair? If I go thru with my plans to marry John, how does a bride walk down the aisle to be met by her groom who is seated in a wheelchair, waiting for her? Even the matter of wedding pictures will be a problem. I realize these sound like little things which should probably never bother me, but they do. Will my children feel cheated because their father won't be able to do things with them that their friends' fathers will Be doing? I am 20 years old, Abby, and should know my own mind, but I am frankly bewildered. Can you, or any of your experienced readers, help me? MISERABLE IN MAINE DEAR MISERABLE: You have too many doubts, my dear. If you really loved John, you wouldn't be asking for someone to "sell" you on marrying him. You would be determined to marry him—no matter what, and you'd be so sold that no one could talk you out of it. DEAR ABBY: I have a sticky problem. I share an apartment with a young man from a foreign country. He is here for graduate study. I told him I was going out of town for the weekend and he asked me if he could have a friend stay with him in our apartment. I thought it was another fellow, since he is a married man and speaks so lovingly of his wife and child. When I returned, he told me that his guest was a lady friend. I do not approve of adultery and was shocked and disappointed in this young man. I plan to go away again, and my roommate has asked if he may have a guest [I presume it's the same one] in my absence. How should I handle this? He is older than I, and I am not about to give him a moral lecture, but I don't want to be a party to such goings on. ACCOMPLICE DEAR ACCOMPLICE: Tell your roommate what you have told me. And since your moral codes are not compatible with his, I think you'd both be happier with a change of roommates. DEAR ABBY: This is for "Wrong Way Corrigan," [the lady motorist who always gets lost]: Welcome to the club! Don't be upset about getting places in a 'roundabout' fashion. It's better than most people who don't drive can do. Besides, you're not really "lost." You are just misplaced for the moment. Did you consider that gas stations are really for giving directions? Selling gas is a sideline. Some of the nicest people in the world are gas station attendants, policemen and dog walkers. I know. I have met thousands of them. I have 34,000 miles on my car, of which 4,000 are "misplaced." Traveling without adequate directions is a challenge. Besides, you become a source of amusement to your friends who begin to look forward to the story of your "safaris " Perfection is boring! ELIZABETH B. K., President of See America Unintentionally Club. What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Box 69700. Los Angeles. Cal. 900*9.
