No redress for dress code By Abigail Van Buren '. ti.WJM caieMt .TrikMt -M. v. NMC.SIM., IK.. DEAR ABBY: Man, do we have a problem! About 100 junior and senior high school students in Oklahoma need your help. Ours is a small-town school and the school board is so old fashioned it isn't even funny. They set up a dress code for girls saying we can't wear our dresses any shorter than three inches above our kneecaps. And they even tell the boys how long to wear their hair. They can't have it any longer than their collars. Abby, everyone is so uptight here they are failing in their work. Do you honestly believe that a person's dress affects his behavior? IN JAIL IN MULDROW, OKLA. DEAR IN: I hate to let you down, but serious studies show that a person's dress DOES affect his behavior. Kids who dress like they're going to a hay ride are more inclined to horse around. DEAR ABBY: I came up with what I thought was a brilliant idea in the way of New Year's resolutions for married folks. The husband should make up a list of resolutions for his wife to follow, and the wife should make up a list of resolutions for her husband to follow. For example, he might have me resolve never to ask him to stop on his way home and pick up something from the store, because that's my job and I have all day to do it. And I might have him resolve always to call me and tell me if he knows he'll be late getting home. My husband told me he thought it was a very foolish idea and I should forget it. Personally, I can't see what anyone would have to lose except some bad habits that irritated the spouse. On Jan. l, both parties would sit down together, exchange lists, and bargain. You know, "Okay, I'll agree to Number One on your list, if you'll agree to Number Two on mine." What do you think of this idea, Abby? MRS. T. IN JOPLIN, MO. DEAR MRS. T.: I think it's so good, since it missed New Year's, any Monday morning would be a good starting date. DEAR ABBY: You wrote, "You will always be your mother's daughter regardless of WHO your father's wife is." You are wrong. It should be "WHOM" because the entire phrase "who your father's wife is," is the object of the preposition "of." Should your experts on English language prove me incorrect, I bow to the fact that language usage is a living thing, and as such is always changing. WIFE AND TEACHER DEAR WIFE AND TEACHER: Don't teach the above, because you are wrong. "Who" is correct, because it it the subject of the clause, not the object. DEAR ABBY: With all the publicity about breast cancer, I have yet to read one line stating that it's possible for men to have breast cancer. They can. I should know because I did. I discovered two lumps in the region of my right breast. I went to a doctor and found that, indeed, I had breast cancer. It's been a year since my surgery, and I continue to be "clean" simply because I saw the doctor in time. I am 48. T. J., HOLLYWOOD, CAL. DEAR T. J.: I, for one, learned something new today. Thanks for writing. ProblenuT YM'U feel bettor If yen get H eff your chert. Per a BCMMBI reply, write to ABBY: Box Na. OWN. L. A., CaUf. MM*. Eaetoae ttampet MU-aMrtaati eavetoae.

Johnson's Visits To Iowa DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Former President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who died Monday in Texas, visited Iowa eight times. Here is a brief rounddown of the eight trips: Dec. 8, 1959: Then Democratic major leader in the U.S. Senate, Johnson made stops at Council Bluffs, Des Moines and Marshalltown— and at all denied he was seeking the Democratic presidential nomination at the party's upcoming convention. May 27, 1960: Johnson stopped off in Des Moines en route to Idaho Falls, Idaho, and conferred 40 minutes with then Iowa governor Hershell Loveless. Both said later they discussed farm policy, not politics. June 19, I960: Johnson came to Des Moines to host a reception for delegates to the Democratic National Convention and said that neither religion or geography should be a qualification for a presidential candidate. July 31, I960: As the Democratic Party's vice-presidential candidate, Johnson made the first farm speech of the campaign when he spoke before 7,.000 persons at a bean and barbecue rally at the Jones County Fairground in Monticello. Aug. 20, I960; With Presidential candidate John F. Kennedy, Johnson came to Des Moines for a 16-state farm rally. Oct. 7, 1964: On a campaign stop, the then President Johnson came to Des Moines and in a V2 -hour stopover was seen by an estimated 177,000 Iowans. He told a crowd at the Iowa Statehouse that peace was the first priority of his administration. A month later, Johnson carried Iowa by 283,000 votes and Democrats won six of the state's seven Congressional seats. June 30, 1966: Johnson spoke to a $100-a-plate Democratic fund-raiser in Des Moines and later visited the Woodrow Diehl farm near Indianola. A crowd estimated at 35,000 saw Johnson's motorcade and another 7,- 1 000 turned about at Indianola, but some anti-war were present too. Feb. 20, 1969: After he had announced his decision not to run for reelection, Johnson came to inspect the Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch. He hoped it would offer some ideas for his own presidential library in Austin. Dr. K. L. Johnson Dr. J. J.
