Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 0 The Odar llaplds tiazelte: Tues., Sept. 10, 197-1 First Lady Betty Ford is all smiles as she kneels down to receive flowers offered by six-year-old Robert White, who was part of the committee who welcomed Mrs. Ford during her arrival at the Birmingham, Ala. airport. Mrs. Ford and nine other prominent women were honored this weekend for their charity and philanthropic leadership. Little Robert seems somewhat awed by the occasion. Society i Features By Abigail Van liuren' DEAR ABBY: I have been saddened and amused by the number of letters in your col- umn from people who were upset by the size of their nos- es. The mother who couldn't love her baby because nf its big hit me hard. To me, a prominent nose is beautiful. Look at Cleopatra. A little button-nose may be but give me the beauty and character of a nose that is proud and prominent. We are all entitled to our own standards of beauty. Why should we let Madison Avenue stereotypes lead us around by the nose1' KNOWS NOSF.S DEAR KN'OWS: We shouldn't. Which inspired the following limerick: There once was a beauty named A Puritan life-style she chose. Lechers galore she would show to the door. Would you say she was saved by her no's? (Edgar Allen f'o-l'o) DKAR ABBY: That dis- turbed young mother who couldn't "love" her baby because it had such a homely nose prompts me to write this. I recently visited a young (and very handsome) couple who had a nine-monlh-old baby. No one warned me, so I wasn't prepared for what I saw when they brought her out. She was positively the homeliest baby I had ever seen. Unusually homely. 1 was at a loss for what to say. sn I just .said, "Hi, dar- ling baby." She smiled, her eyes twinkled and her homely little face lit up as she held mil her anus to welcome me as a new friend. Within minutes 1 knew the secret of that baby's charm. Her parents treated her as though she were an exquislely beautiful and beloved treasure by letting her know what a lovd baby sin.1 was. Conse- quently, she is exactly what they hold her to he a beautiful treasure. Within minutes one forgets that she is not a very pretty baby, because it doesn't really matter. Her personality is sunny, lovable and responsive. Parents of "homely" babies can learn a lot from this con- pic. I did. A DKAII And I'll wager so did many others. Kvervono has a problem.

Nixon and his fam- ily are not the only ones who have "suffered enough because of Watergate." In a statement Monday night, the wife of the former President's chief accuser asked President Ford to demonstrate the same compassion for oilier Watergate families that he showed to Nixon's. "I'm gratified by the President's spirit of forgiveness, but dismayed by the apparent limitations he has applied to Mrs. Dean said in her first public statement since her imprisoned husband became a central figure in the Watergate scandal. "Mr. Nixon and his family are nol the on- ly ones who have suffered enough because of she said, adding: Told the Truth "Since the President has adopted this posture, I pray lie will nol overlook those who have fully cooperated with the government in getting out the truth of Watergate to the American people. "These individuals are also suffering because they told the truth which is some- thing we have yet to hear from Mr. Nixon. "Why didn't Mr. Nixon have to pay at least the price of truth for his Maureen Dean, a striking woman in her late 20s, became a familiar figure at the na- tionally televised Watergate hearings in the summer of 1973. Always impeccably coiffed and dressed, she sat just behind her husband during his five days of dramatic testimony implicating Nixon, whom Dean had served as White House counsel. Only Accuser For nearly a year, Dean stood alone as the President's accuser. But last April, much of his testimony was corroborated by tran- scripts of secret tape recordings that Nixon had made with his White House aides. Junk Food Out Says Principal NEW HAVEN, Conn.
