Photo Album Of The Past . . . Maple Hill's Pride With girls basketball having been initiated in Estherville this week, it's interesting to note the 1916-17 girls' team from Maple Hill, a school which is no longer in operation. Members of the team were, front from left: Mae Burkholder (Mrs. George McKean), and Grace Gilbertson (Mrs. Clyde Sanborn). In the back row are: Alice Uurkholder (Mrs. Ed McKean); Edna Gage (Mrs. Glen Stevens); Coach Earl Woodridge; Blanche Bunt; and Ruth McKean (Mrs. Chris Jespersen).

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 17 years. We have one child—a 16-year-old son who has slept with his daddy rince he was born. Of course, when the boy got old enough to notice things I moved to another bed, but my husband wouldn't let the boy sleep by himself, and to this day our son goes to sleep in his daddy's arms. The only attention I get is at two or three o'clock in the morning when Daddy can slip out of bed for a little while. [Sometimes it's four to six months before Daddy can slip out of bed.] Our son is in high school now, and I keep telling my husband that this is abnormal. He says it 's not. The boy makes very good grades so maybe I am worrying for nothing. Can this ruin our son? Please advise me. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: Congratulations on your son's grades, but there are other aspects to be considered here. It is NOT normal for a father and son to fall asleep in each other's arms nightly for 16 years. |A man and his wife normally sleep that way. J Your local Family Service Association or Mental Health Association can provide you, your husband, and son with excellent counseling. I urge you to seek their help. You may have to blaze the trail and go alone, but don 't let that discourage you. DEAR ABBY: You are right, but only partially. In the U. S. A. reople equate fat with ugly and thin with beauty. However, in the South American countries the opposite is true. When I was a child living in Bolivia [my parents were missionaries] my mother was constantly told, "Senora would be very beautiful if she would put on some weight." My mother was beautiful by American standards, but woman next door. I also have a cousin who is nursing 'her baby. Can this be a mental thing? I don't know what to think, and don't know who to ask. ANONYMOUS, PLEASE DEAR ANONYMOUS: According to a documented article by J. D. Ratcliff [Reader's Digest, May, 1972], you don't have to be pregnant, married, or even going with anybody to have milk in your breasts. You don't even have to be a girl! [Yes, males have been known to have milk In their breasts!] Don't worry about it. It's temporary, and a bit of a nuisance, but it's not serious. DEAR ABBY: Much has been said and written about careless brides who are late with their thank you notes—or worse yet—never get around to acknowledging their gifts at all. How about the other side of the coin? I refer to people who say to a bride [or groom], "I've got a gift at the house —drop by and pick it up, will you?" This happened to my daughter I at her wedding reception] believe it or not! I think to ask a couple to go "pick up" a gift is the height of rudeness. What is wrong with people like that? FATHER OF THE BRIDE DEAR FATHER: In most cases, rant, or they just don't care. they arc either igno- New Cost of Living Head ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL, JAN. 12,1973 p a g e 3 Dunlop a Practical Man CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) John T. Dunlop, the new head of the Cost of Living Council, is a practical man and a labor expert who avoids theory in favor of custom-made solutions to individual problems, his colleagues say. As dean of the Harvard faculty, Dunlop earned a reputation for logic and fairness, of putting on a front of gruff aloofness in public and turning to off-hand openess in private. He distrusts the enveloping size of economic-control bu- Cemetery Site May Hold Distant Nixon Relative COLONA, ni. (AP) - In a secluded little cemetery atop a high hillside overlooking the Rock River and U.S. 6 near here is the unassuming grave of George Nixon, believed to be the g r e a t-g r e a t-great- giandfather of President Richard Nixon. The grave site in Glenwood Cemetery was marked in 1925 by the Daughters of the American Revolution because George Nixon was a soldier in the American Revolution. This is the only grave site of a Revolutionary soldier in Henry County, say DAR officials. Although George Nixon's grave has not been officially identified as that of the President's great-great-grandfather, President Nixon did inquire about the grave site while campaigning in the Quad Cities in 1%0, according to local DAR members. The marker dedicated at the graves ite by the DAR is a large stone monument to a man who served as a spy for the Americans in the Revolutionary War and later settled down in Henry County. The monument reads: "Near here lies George Nixon, soldier of the Revolution. Born 1752, New Castle County, Delaware, and died 1842 in Henry County, Illinois." A White House spokesman said this week that the first Nixon of record in the Presi- dunt's family was named James and lived in New Castle County, Delaware. According to White House records, a spokesman said, James had a son named .^ieorge to whom he bequeathed 100 acres of land in 1773. George Nixon is described in the records as fighting in the Revolutionary War and being among the first pioneers in western Ohio. The record is a bit sketchy on George, but it says he had a son, George III, who fought in the Civil War and died in the Battle of Gettysburg. President Nixon placed a wreath on the grave of George III at Gettysburg National Park several years ago, the White House said. The marker on George Nixon's grave states that he served as an ensign and later a lieutenant and was involved in the battles of Trenton, Princeton, and Brandywine. He was also a member of Capt. McKee's spy company, "preventing Tory aid to the British." In a recent publication, the DAR officially claim it as the gravesite of the President's ancestor. "I don't know where that information came from, but it probably came right from the top," said Mrs. Rex Millikin of Geneseo, 111., who has served as a regent of THE DAR. "The DAR is about checking that," she said. The gravesite is in the Glenwood Cemetery just off U.S. 6 on a hillside south of the Montgomery elevator here. A narrow winding road, which sees only infrequent use these days, leads to the cemetery. very careful things like reaucracy, and friends say he is more at home at a plumbers' convention than at a Harvard faculty meeting. On Thursday, President Nixon named him to head the most powerful government regulator of the new Phase 3 economic •jolicies. When he named Dunlop, Nixon said he was abandoning most of the current wage and price controls in favor of making the national budget and voluntary restraints the main means of slowing inflation. Dunlop agrees. And he has said government should set a good example of economizing if it expects business to do the same. Intelligent fiscal policy with an eye toward inflationary trouble spots, he says, is the key to keeping wages and prices in line. "He is the most effective pragmatist I've ever met," said Derek Bok, president of Harvard. Dunlop, in a book coauthored with Bok two years ago before current curbs were started, said wage and price controls are undesireable. "The requisite bureaucracy is cumbersome, inefficient and repugnant," he wrote, "The risk of misallocating resources is considerable." The government, he said, should take the lead in its own dealings by setting anti-inflationary standards when building and buying goods, for instance, and by bucking seasonal trends when having buildings constructed. Dunlop, 58, has been an economist at Harvard for 34 years. He succeeds Donald Rumsfeld, named ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Dunlop has spent his adult life in academic positions, but in recent years has devoted one day a week to labor-management affairs in Washington. His current project is chairmanship of the Construction Industry Stabilization Commiteee, the construction industry's pay board. His dealings in Washington labor affairs have earned him two important friendships, one with Treasury Secretary-designate George Shultz, the other with Peter Brennan, the New York construction union leader who has been nominated as secretary of labor.

Easy on the propaganda for American preference for heft get and the stampede south could sink DEAR ABBY: My husband and I live in a small apartment and have only a dining area adjoining the kitchen. I had a small dinner party—my husband's boss and his wife, another couple, and us. I had no help, which was no problem as I am well organized. After the dessert, the boss' wife said, "Oh, let's clear the table." So we three women cleared the table. Then the boss' wife said, "Oh, heck, why don't we do up these few dishes?" And she sounded like she really meant it. Since the men were talking business in the other room I didn't see anything wrong with it, so we three laughed and talked and did up the dinner dishes. Then we joined the men. Everyone seemed to have had a wonderful time. After the guests went home my husband had a fit. He said I should not have let the women do the dishes. I tried to explain it was the boss' wife's idea, but he said I could have [and should have] talked her out of it. Abby, I still think I did the right thing. What do you think? CAUGHT THE DICKENS DEAR CAUGHT: I think you did, too. DEAR ABBY: This is going to sound stupid, but I have to know. Can a girl who is not pregnant have milk in her breasts? I am 16 years old, not married, and I am a virgin, but I could nurse a baby with all the milk that's leaking out of me. I discovered it when I was doing the routine monthly checkup for cancer or lumps in the breast. My cousin was with me and she was as shocked as I was. She thinks my mental condition could have something to do with it.
