Cant Lose What You Don t Have Yet By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: My daughter, a high school girl, has been having a lot of boys and girls over to the house lately. Among them are some boys of foreign extraction, and whether it's something they eat, or because they don't bathe or change their clothes regularly I do not know, but they smell to high heaven! 1 think it Would be a kindness for someone to tell them. My daughter says that she doesn't want to hurt their feelings, and after a while she doesn't even notice it. Abby, when I, open", our front door I know whether those boys are here or liot! Is there a nice way to solve this problem? OFFENDED DEAR OFFENDED: Apparently your daughter's odoriferous friends aro not as offensive to her as they aro to you. I know Mo "nice" way to tell people they "smell to high heaven." One of their best friends will surely pick up the scent some day and rescue them from social suicide. DEAR ABBY: Where do you stand on this? An Extremely well-to-do, gentleman recently presented his bride with a VERY expensive diamond ring, and 1 mean EXPENSIVE. She is his second wife and he is her second husband, both having "lost" their former mates in the divorce courts. The bride has confided to a few friends (I am one) that she has agreed in her will to leave her diamond to her husband should she die before he does. The idea being that he shall give it either to his next;wife, or to his daughter by his first wife. How uo you like that? •'••:• , . •.. ; . v ' . • ' ...- .. ' l The bride also has a daughter by her first husband. It seems to me that when a man gives his wife a diamond ring, it ii HERS. And she should have the privilege of leaving her ring to her own daughter if she so chooses. Isn t this a rather strange kind of deal?; ; ..;'• DEAR CURIOUS: There's nothing strange about it. The gentleman invested in a diamond, and he's letting his bride wear it as long as she lives. But it is HIS diamond and THEIR deal. And it's also THEIR business. . ' DEAR ABBY: 'There is this boy I like a lot, and every- time he sees me, he says, "Mary, I'll call you tonight!" But he never calls. I told him it he is going to call, to just call, but it he's not going to call not to tell me he is. Can you give me some advice? 1 don't want' to lose him: THIRTEEN DEAR THIRTEEN: LOSE him? If he promises to call and doesn't, you have yet to get him. Pay no attention to him when he says he'll call. And if he calls, it will be a delightful surprise.
