Qfltt Pampa flatly Neuti rro/ne/i'sPa^e ea/i-Aiia- c The war's over! Parents DO raise and rear kids By Abigail V M lurtm !• »m * OHM* Trims*. T. few *•«., toe.] DEAR ABBY: I enjoy your stuff. When I attended Ta- lane University, I told my professor that I was raised in Shrevejport, La. He said, "You RAISE hogs and REAR children." You mentioned that you were raised in a small town. Tell me, Abby, were you RAISED or REARED? Love mH kissses, HENRY DEAR HENRY: in "The Careful Writer," Theodore M. Bernstein (whom many consider the Supreme Court of American Journalism 1 put it this way: "At one time, a war raged [and some skirmishes are still going on] against the «e of "RAISE" to describe what parents do to children. The battle cry was, 'You raise pigs, but yon rear children.' However, in this country it least, the war is over; we RAISE bDth pigs and children, and some parents will testify that you can't always tell the difference." Right on, Mr. B.! DEAR ABBY: We recently had a death in our family and a local politician who was running for office called up and asked if he could be a pallbearer. He took the members of the family by such surprise they said yes. We had already selected the pallbearers but we were so upset at the time we weren't thinking. This politician was the first to sign the guest register, and he went around shaking hands and slapping everyone on the back like it was a campaign rally. He sure got in the public eye at that funeral which is the only reason be wanted to be a pallbearer. He hardly even knew the deceased or any of the family. When it was all over we realized how we had been used. What should this politician have been told when he called up and offered to be a pallbearer? USED DEAR USED: "Thank you, but the pallbearers have already been selected." [P. S. I'm curious. How did be come out in the election?] DEAR ABBY: My parents an planning to send my ten- year-old brother to Europe this summer to visit his grandfather, whom the boy has never seen. Mother says it will be a "good experience" for him. But I'm not so sure. I think to send a rather immature ten-year-old boy thousands of miles from home, alone, to a strange country to be with a strange man who speaks another language [which my brother has never.heard].will hurt him psychologically. I am 23 and I know it would bother me. My brother isn't too keen on it. This really troubles me, Abby. After all, how can a 90- year-old man take proper care of a young boy thru sign language? [Grandfather speaks no English.] Am I foolish to worry? DESPERATE SISTER DEAR DESPERATE: If yew tf-year-old grandfather •peaks no English, and lives alone, I cu understand why the lad Isn't "too keen" on it. If there are others la the family [or in the community] with whom he will be auod- ating, It might be a good eiperieice for him. Don't become "desperate" unless all the facts are to. CONFIDENTIAL TO "WONDERING": FBI my eye! It's unwise for a girl to keep company with a man who is t* mysterious. Tell the fellow that even FBI ageat* haw friends, families, neighbors, co-workers, and clergymen— someone who can vouch for their characters. [P. S. The FBI office in your city can tell you If he is employed by them. And if he's an "undercover ma"," he shouldn't have told you that he was.l Problems? Trust Abby. For a persMal reply, write to ABBY.

Plank To Observe Anniversary MMM DAILY NfWS 11 PAMPA. TKXAS 66th YEAR Thursday. June 22. 1972 Annapolis Gets Lady Teacher SEATTLE (AP) A 31-year-old Navy Lieutenant from the University of Washington is scheduled to be the first woman instructor at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. But Lt. Cmdr. Georgia Clark holds little hope for women seeking admission to the academy as students. "If they decide to put women on ships, or if they decide to train men only for shore duty," she said, "then they could start admitting women to Annapolis." She is specializing in foreign affairs at the university's graduate school of public affairs to complete work on her master's degree. "I'm excited about it," she said. "It will be a very outstanding student body. It will be a real challenge facing a roomful of bright iien like that." She said s..e believes she got the nod from the Navy because of her extensive foreign travels and her academic background, which includes studies of international affairs at American University in Washington D.C. and courses at the Navy's Defense Intelligence School. Sunglasses Are for Sun Sunglasses are very fashionable, but functional too. Nothing is worse than squint line! and they don't go away.

Friends of the family are invited to attend. Natural Look Even if you like the natural look, some sort of foundation should be used. A clean scrubbed face won't stay that way very long if the pores are left unprotected. If you shun all make- ups, including a light foundation, a thin coat of moisturizer will still protect the skin.
