By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: At the risk of perpetuating the "Living Will" controversy, may I add my two cents worth? As a nurse, I have seen many elderly terminally ill patients become artificially-breathing vegetables. Some pray for death, others refuse nourishment in order to hasten their end, some cry softly, some become bitter and some just wait with resigna- tion. To allow human beings to die with dignity is not "mercy kill- ing." When death is imminent, a patient should be kept as com- fortable and pain-free as possi- ble, but these patients will die as surely and inevitably as they did in all the centuries before "modern medicine." Where is it mitten that an ap- pointment with God should.be delayed; that He should be kept waiting while man experiments with His creation? A NURSE IN LA JOLLA, CAL. DEAR NURSE: Well said. Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. DEAR ABBY: My daughter- in-law did not acknowledge any of her wedding gifts and she has been married for more than six months. She says she is "sorry" but now it is loo late to do any- thing about it I am terribly embarrassed be- cause many of my good friends sent gifts. I don't know which direction to take. Should I, as a mother-in-law, interfere? I wouldn't mind helping even writing them all myself, but I don't want to stir up trou- ble. Please advise me. PERPLEXED DEAR PERPLEXED. I would tell my daughter-in-law that even though it is very late it is not TOO LATE to ac- knowledge her gifts, and I would offer to help her. If she refuses, I would wile to those who sent her gifts out of friendship to me, apologize for her negligence, and thank them myself. wirephob Katharine Graham, chairman 'of the board of the Washington Post Co., receives the John Peter Zenger award in Scottsdale, Ariz., for her newspaper's coverage of the Watergate scandal.

(AP) Katharine Graham, chair- man of the board of the Wash- ington Post, said Saturday that the press would become "the nursemaid of a weak and immature society" if it sup- pressed bad and unsettling news. Accepting the John Peter Zenger award. Mrs. Graham said that "the founding fa- thers gave the press a very different job: To inform the people and promote the free- flow of facts and ideas, how- ever untimely or challenging or disagreeable those facts may be." The award is made each year by the University of Ari- zona in recognition of service in the cause of freedom of in- formation. Mrs. Graham re- ceived it for the Post's report- ing of the Watergate scandal. In an address prepared for the Arizona Newspapers Assn. convention, Mrs. Graham dis- puted those who say that "somehow the press created the agony of Watergate in the sense of having caused the na- tion's turmoil. "The President is so weak- ened, he can hardly govern the argument this is the doing of the press. "We For the most important faci, and the only really relevant fact about the array of of- fenses known as Watergate, is that they happened." She conceded that Water- gate coverage has been more sustained, probing and exten- sive than that of previous gov- ernment scandals. However, listing some of the resignations, convictions and indictments growing out of it, she said that Watergate showed "a pervasive, indis- criminate use of power and authority." No other scandal, Mrs. Gra- ham said, "has been so com- pounded by mistakes and mis- assessments on the part of those under investigation." She blamed those errors for prolonging and intensifying "the national anguish." Mrs. Graham defended the Post's reliance on leaks of in- formation and on sources who could not be identified in re- porting the story. The newspaper, she said, double-checked every bit of material before printing it and did not publish much which could not be confirmed but later turned out to be true. "We now know that, long before the Watergate bur- glars, White House aide were trying in many ways to intimidate and discredit the press and manipulate public opinion to their own she.said.
