Affection Impresses Mrs, Truman INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — Harry S. Truman's widow and daughter, "touched by the outpouring of sympathy and affection from citizens everywhere," have expressed their appreciation to those who joined them in mourning for the 33rd president. In a statement made public after Truman was buried late Thursday in the courtyard of his presidential library, Bess Truman and her daughter, Margaret Daniel, said they were "impressed by both the dignity of the ceremonies and the warmth of the tribute paid to Mr. Truman." The ceremonies of Wednesday and Thursday were solemn and simple. Thousands viewed Truman's casket as he lay in state before the funeral attended mostly by family and hometown friends. The tributes will continue. A memorial service will be held Jan. 5 in Washington's National Cathedral for the Man from Independence who died Tuesday at 88. And the nation's flags, by President Nixon's order, will continue to fly at half staff for another 26 days. Randall Jessee, the long-time friend who acted as the family spokesman through the days of Truman's final illness and burial, said the 87-year-old widow expects to continue making her home in the white frame house where the Trumans spent most of the 53 years of their marriage. The home is about a half mile from Truman's gravesite. Mrs. Truman's widowed sister-in-law, May Wallace, lives nearby. Jessee told newsmen he was 1 FLAGS WILL CONTINUE to fly at half-mast until January 24 in honor of the late Harry S. Truman who was buried Thursday in Independence, Mo.

"Anyone who watched her face couldn't help but admire her," he said. Seated beside Margaret, hatless and in a simple black coat, Bess watched almost motionless as the final honors were performed over the brown mahogany casket. At one point she reached for a handkerchief and her daughter helped remove it from a pocket. But Jes.-ee, standing not far away, said he had seen no tears. Margaret, too, put a hand to her face once or twice, but she maintained a composure that matched her mother's. And she leaned over frequently during the interment service to speak briefly with Bess. With them in the center of the spacious courtyard were Margaret's husband, Clifton Daniel, associate editor of The New York Times; the four Daniel children, and May Wallace. The two older Daniel boys sat quietly through the ceremony, but Thomas, 6, and Harrison, 9, frequently looked around in apparent wonder at the gathering.

Prisoned Russian Writer Celebrates 30th Birthday NEW YORK (AP) - Soviet leaders, marking today the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, are targets of another anniversary observance they hadn't looked for. Today is also the 30th birthday of Vladimir Bukovsky, a writer dangerously ill in Vladimir Prison, where he is serving the first phase of a 12-year sentence for circulating material "aimed at undermining and weakening Soviet power." He is one of many intellectuals subjected to a harsh official crackdown. Sympathizers outside the Soviet Union organized a campaign to send birthday greetings to Bukovsky at the prison. Hundreds of cards have been sent from Amsterdam, where the campaign originated, and the idea has spread to other countries, including the United States. Bukovsky's friends also have disclosed that the University of Leyden in the Netherlands has just offered him the opportunity to study there free of financial obligation- if he can get out of prison. A copy of the invitation has been sent to Leonid I. Brezhnev, head of the Soviet Communist party, and President Nikolai Podgorny. "The University Council took their decision in the firm belief that you should be afforded this opportunity on humanitarian grounds," said the invitation to Bukovsky. "The financial impli­ cation as well as the necessary formalities of your entry into this country should in no way be the cause of worry on your part. Certain financial guarantees and a permit of stay are now being arranged." But Bukovsky's chances of accepting are slim. Soviet officialdom is particularly angry with him for having used underground resources; to circulate and publicize i the Soviet practice of sending political dissenters to lunatic asylums. That happened to Bukovsky himself. Bukovsky was 19 when he first ran afoul of the regime. He was denounced by the Young Communist League and its press for what he had been writing. His first arrest came in 1965, when he was sent to an asylum. Two years later he was arrested again for circulating a typewritten journal called Phoenix to which many young writers contributed. He drew three years in prison that time. DISPLACED VERTEBRAE OCCUR FREQUENTLY The muscles and ligaments of the neck and back can only withstand a certain amount of physical and-or emotional stress before they displace a vertebra. Tension and pain can be felt in the neck, back and other parts of our body by those of all ages. A displaced vertebrae disrupts the normal flow of nerve energy to the muscles that distorts the spine and interferes with the normal flow of energy to all parts of the body. Numerous muscles & ligaments are attached to each side of the spine pulling in opposite directions attempting to keep the spine in alignment. Special spinal care and time must be given by the doctor and patient to keep the spine in alignment as it sometimes takes weeks or even months for the muscles & ligaments to regain their normal contraction and strength. Through many years of study, the chiropractic profession has found that the best way to eliminate health problems caused by displaced vertebrae is through regular chiropractic care followed by periodic neuro-spinal check-ups.

Central Ph. 712-362-3455 YEAR-END CLEARANCE ON ALL MERCHANDISE IN THE STORE THRU DECEMBER 31st. 15% DISCOUNT Q ON ALL TIRES IN STOCK ESTHERVILLE Professional Man Loves His Work By Abigail Van Buren U im by Chlcno Trlbum-N. Y. Nawt Sfti*., Int.) DEAR ABBY: My home is on the verge of breaking up and there seems little I can do about it. If I leave my husband, there will be three teen-aged children without a father, but I see no other solution. My husband is a professional man with a valuable career. He has admitted to having had sexual relations with a young woman patient 10 years his junior and now be says he's in love with her, but he claims he is also still in love with me. Can this be? We were married when we were both in college 23 years ago and I still love him. Our sex life has been tremendous, yet he tells me that "in the line of duty" he helped this woman to find her "ego identity" by teaching her how to love. I can't stay married to a man who would have relations with other women in the line of duty or for any other reason. Is this something new in psychotherapy? I can't believe psychologists really believe this will help their patients. What of their own emotional involvements and that of their families? HEARTBROKEN DEAR HEARTBROKEN: No professional man in his right mind would have sexual relations with a patient. Your husband needs treatment himself and should not be allowed to continue practicing until he has been rehabilitated. If you love him, don't leave him, but DO insist he see a psychiatrist about his problem. If he continues as he is, he will not only lose his family but his practice as well. DEAR ABBY: I finally found one answer to the age old "I never received a 'thank you' for my gift" problem. A few months ago, the son of a very close relative was married. Prior to the wedding, the bride-to-be had more showers, lunches, and dinners than most young girls. The gifts she received were very lovely — more like wedding gifts. Many people were invited to the showers and, of course, to the wedding, so many, many gifts were given to this young couple. To date, not one person has received a "thank you" note. Rather than bother the bride's mother [or mother-in- law] I called the bride. I figure that if she's old enough to get married, she is old enough to explain why she didn't bother to thank people for their gifts. Also, I wanted to know if mine was received. Her answer was, "Oh, yes, I got everything, but if I only thank some of the people, the others will get mad." How would you have responded to that? E. K. DEAR E. K.: I'd have told her that since she thanked nobody, EVERYBODY was mad! DEAR ABBY: We are wondering how many married couples are suffering from a social status game people play when two or three couples get together. It goes something like this: "We have three cars, two boats, and now HE is talking about buying another snowmobile! How do we get all that in a two-car garage?" Or, "We spent the weekend at the lake cabin with [your favorite friends] and drove over to this place for dinner. Altho the tab was $83 for four of us, we weren't impressed with the salad." Abby, are we out of it? Why do people try to outbrag each other? Is this something new in our affluent society? MIFFED IN ST. LOUIS PARK DEAR MIFFED: No. There have always been people who talk about what they have, where they've been, and who they know. The really worthwhile people talk about ideas and issues. DEAR ABBY: You once gave a definition for "MATURITY" before a high school audience in St. Louis six years ago. What was it? LOREN D. DEAR LOREN: To be able to stick with a Job until it's finished, to do one's job without being supervised, to be able to carry money without spending it, and be able to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.
