Wilson, whose company pro- ides safe driving information or its car and truck fleet leas- ng clients, says rain probably lays a part in two-thirds of all ad weather highway crashes. More people are killed on rain- licked roads, he points out. Rap: We have this "friend" w h o iugs us. Everyday she comes v e r , walks Ln without tnocking, and stays! Kor instance, the other night t got to be 10 p.m., so my is and I put on our pajamas. N'o luck. Then we turned off he TV. Didn't faz* her. Then started yawning. Still DO results. Finally we said we had o go to bed before Mom got home. She still kept on talking -- boringly. She finally left at 1 a.m., and acted a little hurt. Are we rude to drop these hints? -- J And T J And T: Not rude -- j u s t ineffective. With people like this "friend," the best hint is a firm "Goodbye!" -- Helen And Sue Dear Kap: \ How come my folks get along so well after they're divorced when they hated each other, married? They have a greal relationship now. Should f try some schemes to promote another wedding? -Maker Dear M M: No! If your parents want another shot at marriage, they'll make their own decision. Stay clear! -- Sue Dear Matchmaker: Be glad you've got compatible parents, even if they're not currently married to each other. -- Helen Dear Helen And Sue: 1 had an abortion almost two years ago, but my Mom isn't satisfied it she doesn't bring it up at least four or five times a week. She yells about the $50C it cost her. She paid it off al $25 a month, but she was still able to buy a lot of unnecessary things. We areri't real poor people. Every time I want to do something, she says I'm not to be "trusted" -- even to driving car, though I've had my learner's permit for a loo time. I haven't dated a boy seriously since my trouble, but I'm still being punished. Mom treats me like a hig sinner and hardly speaks to mÂ« except to complain about the money forced her to spend. It's Â«urÂ« lonely around here. Could you please tell me how ong a girl should be punisher after she has reformed? Dear S.P.: You've been punished almost two years too long! A mother who constant!; brings up her daughter's past mistakes Is bucking for a daughterless future! -- Helen Dear Mother Of S.P.: Your daughter paid for he mistake -- In a great deal mor than money! Put yourself In he place and imagine how yo would feel, being ostracized by a mother who couldn't forgive -- Sue Rap: I couldn't believe that a die tionary would give such sloppy definition of "paradox,' but I checked mine and got the same thing. Your examples are more irony than paradox, ac cording to my college pro fessors. I understand a paradox to be a statement that involves logical contradiction, such the sentence. "I never tell th truth." (If it is true, then th statement Is a lie, but if th statement is true, then I'm telling the truth right now which makes me a sometim liar....and so on, ad infinitum -- Judy Swine Threatened RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- U.S swine are being threatened with a rare disease caused b improperly cooked garbage. Wisconsin Agriculturist, farm magazine, reports tha the disease, called SVD (Swin Vesicular Disease), was firr discovered in Italy in 1966 an has spread through Europe. 1 acts like the dreaded foot an mouth disease but affects onl hogs. As yet the disease has no een detected in this country but SVD's rapid spread has in creased the threat of its reduction into the U.S. than on lcÂ« and mow-covered roads combined. In a heavy rain, he cautions, the tires of a fast-moving ear can actually ride like a hydroplane on the film of water that forms on the road and lose con tact with the pavement. The two best ways to avert rainy-weather accidents, Wilson says, are to slow down and leave more space between your car and the one ahead. It's essential to keep windshield wipers and defogger in good condition. Also, you're less likely to make like a hydroplane on wa ter-soaked reads if your tires have plenty of tread and are properly inflated.
