Armstrong ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MON., JAN. 8, 1973 Pag* S Break the chain or break the law By Abigail Van Buren • Client TrtMM-N. T. Km Iprt.. IM. DEAR ABBY: In regard to that lady who felt guilty if she didn't continue to circulate "chain letters," please tell her she should feel guilty if she DOES. They are against the law and should be turned over to the local postmaster. Only last week I received a "prayer" chain letter in the mail. It said: "Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart and always acknowledge Him and He will light your way. This prayer has been sent to you to bring you luck. The original copy came from the Holy Land and has been sent around the world 23 times. Make four copies and send them to your friends. You must do this within four days or you will suffer dire consequences. One man. in Hawaii broke the chain and on the sixth day he died. On the seventh day he won $50,000, which he was unable to collect." Such rot! I am a Presbyterian minister, over 80 years of age. I still preach every Sunday and I believe in prayer, but I broke the chain, and my "four days" are long past and I still feel great! I shall surely tell my congregation to forward any chain letters to their postmaster and feel repaid for having beaded off at least one more piece of superstitious junk. HAROLD A. SMITH, ATLANTIC, IA. DEAR REV. SMITH: Thanks. And I'll tell my readers the same. DEAR ABBY: You have said many times in your column that it is not considered good etiquet to put "No children, please" on wedding reception invitations. Well, I don't care what you say. If you had to pay a caterer $15 a person you would make sure Mom and Pop didn't bring their sue kids along to get a free meal. Some people have to be told in plain English to leave their kids at home, and I say, "TELL 'EM!" PLAIN TALKER IN PHILADELPHIA DEAR PLAIN: For another point of view, let's hear it from a reader in Coon Rapids, Minn. DEAR ABBY: So often you hear from people who want to exclude children from a wedding reception. I find this distressing. Such occasions are ideal for families to be together. The father has to work away from his home all day, and in many cases the mother also works. The kids are involved in their various school activities, or just left to bum around with their peers while the parents run off and leave them. Children should be included with their parents at weddings so they will see the beauty and sacredness of the marriage ceremony. And at the reception, if the refreshments were limited to cookies and punch, children could be included without running the cost up. Who cares what is served? After all, people are supposed to be celebrating the union of two people in love—not food and drink! The family unit is held together by love and togetherness. It is the only thing that will keep our country strong and save mankind from destroying itself. Where else but with his parents should a child learn how adults should conduct themselves? MARY K. BERG Problems? You'll feel better if yon get it off you- chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. M7M, L. A., Calif. M*SS. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

"YOUR HAIR LOOKS LOVELY, BETH.' "IT OUGHT TO, MARGE. I SPEND HOURS ON \T." "YOU SHOULD SPEND 10 MINUTES GETTING A PAP TEST, YOU KNOW." Uterine cancer should be as much a concern to every woman as how she looks. It's the leading cause of cancer deaths among women 20 to 34 years of age. 44,000 women develop it each year. 14,000 of them die when they have everything to live for. That's tragic, but what is more tragic is that if every woman took ten minutes a year for a Pap test, this kind of killer cancer could virtually be halted. Part of good looks is good health. And a big part of good health is finding things like uterine cancer early...before it gets serious...while it's curable.
