Son's romantics worry mom Dear Ahby TTfABlGAlL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBV: I am really worried about my son in Vietnam, He's been there nearly a yggi- and has four girls waiting for him back in the States. He writes them all that he "loves" tfiem and is going to marry them when he gets home. All these girls have sent him ciga r e 11 e s, goodies, s t a - tionery, r adios, watches, tapes, etc. (He tells them what he wants, apl'toey send it.) The'se girls do not know each other, but they ALL telephone me when they hear from my son, and they read me parts of his letters. One girl in particular is lovely. She's asked me to help her with her "wedding" plans. Should I tell this girl what is .going on? And should I tell my son I know what he's doing? SOLDIER'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Don't tell the girl, but do tell your r mn- that not only does he Bate four girls waiting for him, he may have four sets - of parents waiting for him. Put don't be surprised if he decides to sign up for another hitch. DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in my late 40s who has kept company for three years with a" man of about 60. We had a sort of '^understanding," but nothing definite was said about marriage. Well, suddenly a 19-year-old kid turns up from out of nowhere, and this friend of mine has sure taken a shine to him. Now he says he is going to adopt him. Is this possible? JUST ASKING DEAR JUST: Almost anything is possible. Adoption laws vary from state to state, but one thing is standard; Before anyone is allow• ed to adopt a child (this is a ;7'child"?) there will be a thorough investigation and a lot of questions asked. 'DEAR ABBY: My husband came home one day with a ring bearing the emblem of his lodge. He had removed the gold wedding band I had given him and replaced it with this lodge ring. I expressed my hurt and disappointment, but it did no good. He continued to wear the lodge ring. When I tried to explain how I fel£about it, he emphatically told'me he didn't want to hear any more about it. 2 Soon after this he got an- otfieT very heavy ring for his right hand, al^f-with the lodge emblem on if. Tfe- wears both rings every day. I think it is nice that he is so proud of his affiliation with this lodge that he wears a symbol of it on eaclr-hand, but that wedding band is also a very important symbol to me. It was a constant reminder of love, our home, and our children. Do you think he is trying to tell me something? HURT DEAR HURT: I think he has indeed told you some* thing. I also think he to either incredibly insensitive, or needlessly unkind. One wonders if his left hand knows what his right hand is wearing. • DEAR ABBY: A number of our young people engage (n experimental sex. It may be that this practice results in part" "from the temptation to use people and love things. That philosophy has long been Bankrupt. More satisfying living results when we love people and use things. This attitude finds something missing Jn casual sex. EDUCATOR 1DEAR ABBY: It's me 4gain, Paul H. Adams of Babbitt, Nev. Someone wrote in asking if you had ever heard of a lady pallbearer, and you sgid you hadn't. Then I wrote in*>«nd said my mother was one — for 9 months. Well; you printed my letter, and a number of interesting things have happened to me as a result of that. Practically everyone in town has stopped me to remark on it.

Over half of them said, "So Abby does use letters from real people! I always thought she made them up herself.". I received a letter from a man 1 hadn't heard from in 30 years. But the payoff was some guy in Maine. He wrote to tell me that it was scientifically impossible for my mother to tell during the gestation period whether she was a PALLBEARER or a PAL- LABEARER. - YOURS TRULY, PAUL. DEAR PAUL: You're getting to be a habit in Battltt. Keep writing. CONFIDENTIAL TO "I'VE HAD IT:" From your letter 1 would say your wife has had it, too. Furthermore, she was trying to tell you that you don't do any more for her than she does for you, so if you were to find your fun elsewhere it would be all right with her. But she would rather not know about it. Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply write to Abby, c/o The Arizona Republic, P.O. Box 2406, Phoenix, Ariz. 89002.
