Hawkeye State Skiers Paradise Official Publication ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FBI, JAN. 19, 1973 Page 3 City Pays Deeember Bills Quit proposing and cool it for a while By Abigail Van Buren « im »r Ckicaw TrikMM-N. Y. Nm SpM., IK. DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old man and recently lost my wife after 49 years of a happy marriage. My loss was almost unbearable at first, but I faced reality and tried to live again. My problem is this: I have proposed marriage to four widows, all near my age. They are receptive to a point, but all say there is no need for sex at our ages. I am a healthy man and had a good sex life with my wife until she died, so why should I be expected to forgei about sex now? What should I tell these ladies when they turn me down on this important part of life? I say sex is healthy and normal and adds to a happy marriage. Please advise me. NAMELESS, PLEASE DEAR NAMELESS: Perhaps these ladies have turned you down because you appear to be preoccupied with sex. You say you "recently" lost your wife. Yet you have already proposed to four widows. Cool it. Surely there must be an eligible widow who will see things your way. But don't rush her. DEAR ABBY: I am a teen-aged girl who has hairy legs. I don't see anything wrong with it because it is natural. My mother and older sisters say it looks ugly and if I don't shave my legs I will be the butt of guys' jokes, and besides it is not considered good grooming for a girl to go around with hair on her legs. I don't see why society should dictate whether I should have hair on my legs. I think this is strictly a matter of my own choice. What do you think? NATURALLY HAIRY DEAR HAIRY: It's your hair, your legs and your choice. If you choose to keep the hair on your legs, you will soon find out to whom it matters, and to whom it matters not. Since you like the natural look, I suggest you keep it. DEAR ABBY: God help me, Abby, but I made the biggest, most stupid mistake of my life. I tried to steal a piece of costume jewelry from a store and was caught red- handed by a detective posing as another shopper. The foolish thing is, I could have bought it as I had the money. I don't know what came over me. I was booked, and now I have a criminal record which I ant afraid will follow me for the rest of my life. How will this affect my future? I am planning to get married soon. Should I tell my fiance? Will this affect my voting? Will I ever be able to get a passport? Can I hold a civil service job? Will my record follow me into another state? Please tell me everything! I am so sorry for what I did. I wish I could wake up and find it was all a bad dream. HEARTSICK DEAR HEARTSICK: Laws vary in different states. Talk to a lawyer bud get the facts. I think you may be greatly relieved. CONFIDENTIAL TO "BROWNIE": Yes. give him another chance. Tell your husband you will meet him at the next Alcoholics Anonymous Meeting, and afterwards you will talk about a reconciliation Problems? You'll feel better If you get tt off your chest. For a personal reply, write U ABBY: Box No. tfTH, L. A., Calif. MM. Enclose stamfed, self-addressed envelope, please. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Time was when Iowans thought of skiing as something to do in Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Vermont, New York and other far-off places. Iowa skiers still go to these places, but skiing as a sport and as a business is growing in the Hawkeye State. Iowa has about three dozen slopes for accomplished skiers and beginniners. Though the Iowa slopes aren't especially long nor are they nestled among towering pine trees or boulders, there are typical and beautiful Iowa views from the tops of chair lifts. Many skiers say it's possible to learn to ski in Iowa much more economically than at Aspen, Colo., for example. The owners of Iowa ski resorts are working hard to make sure the quality of ski instruction is the best obtainable. Many of the instructors are imports from other states and other nations. Typical rates for private instruction start around $7.50 per hour, or down to $2.50 per hour in groups of from four to 11 people. All Iowa ski resorts have gentle slopes for beginners as well as steeper ones for more advanced skiers. The weatherman cannot be counted on to provide a reliable snow cover year after year in Iowa, especially in central and southern counties. To augment natural snowfall, five of the state's ski resorts have snowmaking equipment to keep their slopes in better than average condition. The longest ski slope in the state is 2,600 feet, at Fun Valley, Montezuma. The average is 750 feet to 1,000 feet. The average drop on the Social Set Revives Old Game Iowa in Brief Appointments More Money DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Sen. Dick Clark, D-Iowa, has been appointed chairman of the Senate Public Works Subcommittee on Public Buildings and Grounds. The chairmanship was formerly held by Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska. In addition, Clark has been appointed to serve on the Public Works subcommittees on water and air pollution, water resources and disaster relief. Registration DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The majority floor leader of the Iowa House demanded Thursday that state Safety Commissioner Michael Sellers quit requiring motorists' Social Security numbers on motor vehicle registration receipts. Rep. Edgar Holden, R-Davenport, said Sellers has exceeded his authority in asking that the motorists' Social Security number or other identifying number be listed on the receipt. "If you feel the information is necessary, you should follow the rule making procedure for state departments" set out in fowa law, Holden said in a letter to Sellers. He said the law sets out in "quite specific" terms the information that must be on the motor vehicle registration receipt but doesn't mention Social Security numbers. Neither, Holden said, has he seen any information from Sellers' office "which would indicate you (Sellers) have made any effort to justify the reasonableness of your new requirement for Social Security numbers." CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP)—Mayor Leo Schula has found a way to earn more money while receiving less. He accomplished this after new Social Security regulations went into effect this year. In 1972 the mayor's salary was $500 a month. But after all the deductions had been made, his take-home pay was $388.72. Social Security regulations now allow persons to earn $175 a month and still be eligible for benefits. So Schula asked the Charles City council to reduce his salary to $175. Now, after deductions, Schula takes home a $158.64 check from the city, $244 from Social Security and $165 in state retirement benefits. That's a totaL of $567.64 a month—an increase of $178.92 over his previous straight salary. AT&T DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-A spokesman for Northwestern Bell Telephone company in Des Moines says it is too early to know how Iowans will be affected by the landmark civil rights agreement signed Thursday by the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. Joe Elstner of Northwestern Bell said it will be quite a while before the phone company will know how many people in Iowa might be affected or how much money they might receive. Northwestern Bell is a subsidiary of AT&T and serves about 7,500 Iowa customers as well as customers in Nebraska, Minnesota and the Dakotas. Elstner says the primary recipients of lump sum payments will be women and minority employes. By WILLIAM DICKE Associated Press Writer LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) From the European ski retreats of the social register set to Hollywood backlots, the ancient game of backgammon is enjoying a resurgence. It has spread from con-' servative Eastern mens clubs into the school yard and the middle-class living room, according to Alexis Obolensky, founder of the International Backgammon Association. Packing portable boards, the mark of the veteran player, most of the world's great backgammon competitors are coming here for a world championship tournament opening today. Some 300 figures from the social world, the sports world, Hollywood and Europe will compete in the four-day tournament sponsored by a distillery. Prizes to be divided among the top 18 winners in the tourney are estimated to total about $100,000. And a part of the proceeds, derived from entry fees, will be contributed to the United Cerebral Palsy Fund, Obolensky said. Playboy Magazine publisher Hugh Hefner has entered, as has actress Polly Bergen, former baseball great Hank Greenberg and Oswald Jacoby, the contract bridge columnist. Obolensky said, "A great majority of our players you might term 'goers.' they like to go to places with action. The casino always benefits." The game, played by the Chaldeans in 3000 B.C., the Egyptian pharoahs and the ancient Romans, caught on at first in resort areas like St. Moritz, Switzerland, Obolensky said. One of the game's enticements is that a player who thinks he is leading can double the stakes. If the lead changes hands, as it often does, his opponent can redouble. The stakes can be Increased until they reach 64 times the original amount. "You can lose a quarter of a million dollars in one evening in some clubs in Europe," Ob- lensky said, adding, "This used to be strictly a man's game." The backgammon player moves 15 playing pieces called counters along a board with 12 narrow triangles, or points, on each side. The winner is the first one off the board. The counters are advanced by a roll of the dice. The game is deceptively simple but powerfully addictive, said Obolensky, who has played it for 36 hours straight. slopes is 200 feet. The largest drop is 250 feet at Decorah's Nor-Ski Run. There are 19 rope tows, three motor-powered, one T-bar and a Poma lift. Most Iowa ski areas have shelters and a hot lunch counter. Nearly all have skis, boots and all other skiing paraphernalia for rent. All the resorts are fairly new and their equipment is in excellent condition. All are anxious to show that skiing is fun. Last year, there were more than 45,000 ski visits to Iowa slopes. Most of the areas have National Ski Patrols trained to give not only instruction but first aid when necessary.
