Don't Let It- Happen to You! DEAR ABBY: Last night I went to sleep with the pillow over my ears to drown out the noise of my parents' quarreling. I am the oldest of six and I feel sort of responsible for the younger ones. My folks have been fighting ever since I can, remember. They fight about little things, like who put gas in the car last, and also over big things like money, and my father's not spending enough time with my little brothers. Abby, this is giving me a nervous stomach because they fight a lot at the supper table. What can a 14-year-old girl do? SICK OF FIGHTING DEAR SICK: The only thing you can do, honey, is to remember it. And make sure you don't give your children the same kind of unpleasant memories. DEAR ABBY: Your answer to "insulted" wasn't fair. It was in response to guests who complained because the guest room they were offered was poorly furnished. "They obviously do not want guests," you stated. Alter all, some families cannot obtain everything at once. We have a $500 bed (I am six feet, seven inches tall and weigh 250 pounds), but we have a $17 roll-away bed in our "guest room," which also doubles as a study with books stacked in every corner. We enjoy having guests, but have not had the funds to furnish our guest room as we would like. Someday we will have better accommodations. But in the meantime, 1 hope our visits together will make up for their having to sleep oa a roll-away bed in a crowded room. ONE OF YOUR EDITORS DEAR EDITOR: Sorry about that, boss, but the guest wrote, "They have a beautiful, push-button home with every modern convenience imaginable. There is nothing too good for them or their children." From that, I inferred it was not so much a shortage of cash, but consideration. I could have been wrong. DEAR ABBY: Altho we are past 60, we have been married only a few years. This question has come up several times and we are both rather puzzled about what is proper. When my husband and I take a single woman in our car for a ride, where should she sit? Between, my husband and me? Or next to the car door and let me sit by my husband? Also when we are walking down the street, should my husband walk between the two of us, or should he walk on the outside with me next to him, and the other lady on the inside, next to me? PUZZLED DEAR PUZZLED: In the car, you should sit next to your husband. While walking, be a little more generous and "share" your husband with the other lady. It will enable him to assist both of you, should either stumble. CONFIDENTIAL TO "A FAN ON MUNICH STREET": When a man has done you wrong, immediately consider with what opinion about good or evil he has done wrong. For when you see this, you will pity him, and will neither wonder nor bf angry. (Marcus Aurelius) Problems? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply, inclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. 4-H News IRVINGTON IDEALS The regular meeting of the Irvinglon Ideals 4-H club was held at St. Benedict hall Aug. 27, 1966.

AT TWILIGHT HOUR In Memory of Margaret Durant Founder and Poet Laureate of Iowa Chaparral Serenely sleeping on her bed of down, She could not know as friends filed slowly by That she was symbhony in pink, and in repose Her beauty was a delight to every eye. The faintest smile still lingered on her face As though a bit of Heaven she had seen; Untouched by wordly woes, complexities, She shone from light within, a virgin queen. Arose that closed its petals at twilight — If that be death — one need not fear the night. Gladys Pagel Poet Laureate of Iowa * # * IN MEMORIAM (Margaret Durant: 1883-1966) (Died: August 3, 1966) Her life was like a lovely flower Pleasure-giving, ever bright Improving every shining nour From pink of dawn to snades of night. Founder of Iowa Chaparral; Truly a poat in her own right; A critic-judge who gave her ail Whose aid uplifted like a kite. She was a rose among the thorns, An inspiration to her friends. Today, her poetry adorns Library shelves in volumes no ends. Frail in body, strong in heart, Her life was . . . beauty, love, and art. By Fred R.
