HOP! i ARK > STAH Three Bequeaths Self As Loving Legacy By Abigail Van Buren (f) 1977 by The Chicago Tribune-N.Y.News Synd. Inc. DEAR ABBY: I hope you find the following worthy of your column: "At a certain moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped. When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And don't call this my 'deathbed.' Call it my 'Bed of Life,' and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives. Give my sight to a man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face or love in the eyes of a woman. Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain. Give my blood to the teenager who has been pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play. Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week. Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk. Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that someday a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window. Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses, and all prejudice against my fellow man. Give my soul to God. If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever." AUTHOR UNKNOWN SUBMITTED BY C.P.: TROY, ILLINOIS DEAR C.P.: Thanks for sharing. After this is pubu'shed I hope the author will surface to claim his well-deserved credit. Meanwhile, it gives me another opportunity to repeat the address of the organ bank: The Living Bank, P.O. Box 6725, Houston, Texas 77005. Write to them and express your desire to will your organs after death. They will send you a card that should be carried at all times. I carry such a card and feel that there is nothing I could leave after my death that will be of greater value. ABBY DEAR ABBY: My husband owns his own business and travels over a large territory, which means he must be away from home over the weekend quite often. He keeps asking me to meet him out of town for the weekend as he gets lonesome for me. Abby, we have three children, 8,11 and 13, and although I can always get someone to take care of the children, I have mixed emotions about running off and leaving them just to keep my husband company. What would YOU do? TRAVELER'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: I would join my husband as often as common sense and practicality allowed. I would rather have someone taking care of my children than my hiwband. Problems? Tell them to Abby. For a personal, unpublished reply, write Abby: Box 69700, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Penny Jones of Hot Springs served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Dana Johnson of Little Rock and Rhonda Lee of Spring Hill.

Nosegays of pink silk rosebuds with burgundy and old rose streamers tied in loveknots POLLYS POINTERS Polly Cramer Sugar is one big lump By Porfy Cramer W K POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY — Do you know how I can get a five- pound bag of white granulated sugar back to grains again? It must have picked up a little moisture somewhere so it is now a five-pound lump. — ARLENE. DEAR ARLENE — The easiest way I know is to pound on the unopened bag until the sugar is broken into lumps. A rolling pin serves the purpose well and covers more ground than a hammer. When the mass is pretty well broken up dump into a strainer and push through the holes with a wooden spoon. How about this, readers, do you have an easier way? — POLLY. 'NEWSPAPEK ENTERPRISE ASSN.j were seen on the corners.

It's crocheted small piece by small piece — so you can carry your work with you in a pocketbook or small tote, The afghan is made by crocheting 44 separate five- inch squares. When completed, they're sewn together to form four panels. Then, the panels are alternated with five long strips of pattern. It's fun to watch the squares and strips add up quickly, And you'll be able to work the pieces wherever you are — at home or in the park, on a bus or a train, on a lunch or coffee break. Once all the pieces are sewn together, all that's needed is a narrow edging on all sides and a decorative fringe at the two narrow edges. The afghan crochets quickly in a yarn like Malina's Natural Earthtone Acrllan acrylic and nylon blend that's Wear-Dated by Monsanto. You'll need just two skeins each of three colors, worked on a size H crochet hook. A bamboo beige, copper and tobacco brown are good choices if you like earthy tones. Or, mix any three go- together shades that harmonize with your home. For a copy of the Instructions for crocheting this handsome afghan design, Just send 50 cents to Stitchln' Time, Box 503, New York, New York 10019. Ask for leaflet #478 and be sure to Include your zip code. KNIT-KNACKS Dear Judy Love: I'm making knitted house slippers ns Christmas gifts for a number of older friends. I worry about them slipping on wood floors and wonder if you have a suggestion of something to put on me bottom soles to prevent this? - M.D., Kansas City, Missouri. Dear M.D.: For a number of years I hnvc found thai using Iron-on fabric works wonderfully well to prevent slipping. For the sole, cut an oval piece. For the heel a round piece Is needed. Iron these on the bottom of the slipper before sewing up the seam. This not only mokes them safer, but they will wear much longer as well. Keep knitting. Judy Love. IT ALL ADDS UP • the afghan that's crocheted piece by piece is put together to form a handsome mixture of color and pattern.
