Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10A The Cedar, Baplds Gazelle: Thars.. Nov. 7. 1974 Wife Objects To More Alimony By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: My husband has too much pride to ask his former wife to relinquish her alimony payments. We've discussed it and he is also opposed to taking the mallei- In court. Based on the following facts, do you think my husband should continue paying alimony? 1. She received all the equity in a home, paid-up car and all furnishings as part of the original settlement. 2. Their children are now married and financially inde- pendent. 3. His ex-wife is in her forties, employed full-time and earns better than average income. 4. He has paid her alimony promptly for 14 years. I would appreciate your thinking. SECOND WIFE DEAR WIFE: You've stated lhal you have discussed the niatlcr wilh your husband, and he's content to keep the status quo, so my Ihinking is nol likely lo influence him. Alimony has been appropriately caiicd, "the high cost of leaving." Perhaps unconsciously your husband feels that it's nol loo high a price lo pay for what he bought. DEAR ABBY: For the last eight years I have been "en- gaged" to a married man. I know you've heard this story a thousand times, but he says we will be married as soon as he can get a divorce. Lately I am beginning to wonder. He is 42 and I am 29. When I met him he said he was separated from his wife. Later on he said lie was trying for a divorce but she was contesting it. He claims he lives like a gypsy, staying with one relative after another and sometimes with friends. I have never bad a phone number where he can be reached in case of emer- gency. And no address either. He owns his own business and has given me some ex- pensive gifts, but 1 want to get married and live a normal life. I used lo tell my family and friends that I was too young to gel married, but at 29, that's a ridiculous excuse. How do you figure this? Am I just a slow learner? 1 promise lo take any advice you give me. Please help. TIRED OF WAITING DEAR TIRED: I Ihink you've been used. Don't waste any more of your valuable time on him, dear. Quiclly relocate and make sure he doesn't have your phone number or ad- dress. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is a lovely, 24-year-old, col- lege-educated woman who is in love wilh a man who absolute- ly does not believe in marriage. They have been living together for three years and now (hey want to start a family. We are heartsick and don't know what to do. He has no family, but we have. My.parents would suffer even more than we if they knew that their beloved grandchild (my daughter) had a child oul-of-wedlock. Should we say (hey were secretly married and try lo carry it off, or forget it? We have no one lo ask for advice as we are loo ashamed to have anyone know. HEARTSICK DEAR HEARTSICK: You arc not responsible for (he deci- sions of your 24-year-old daughter, so hold up your heads and gel over (he idea that you have somelhing aboul which lo be ashamed. Do not lie to your parents or anyone else. It may case your burden lo know lhai you have plenty of company.

Women Runners Need Some Fat SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Is fat good for you? If you're a woman who likes to run, some of it is, says Dr. Joan U.'lyot, a medical researcher and one of the world's top women long-dis- tance runners. The 34-year-old pathologist says her own research and competitive experience in- dicate that after 20 miles of running, women can, in fact, outrun men, largely because their bodies have a greater percentage of fat and they seem to convert it to energy more efficiently. But she warned that this is residual fat, not the excess fat associated with obesity. Excess fat is metabolized so slowly that it's almost useless in cross-country running, she said. ON THIS DATE in 1904, a nearly-completed building collapsed in Rio cle Janeiro, killing 41 persons. TheMre.

Phone 363-8219 Next To Hoover School Mrs. Hicks Won't Reveal Anti-Busing Plans By Sdh Mydans BOSTON (AP) "Are you that naive? How can you ask me a question like asked Louise Day Hicks. "Five federal lawyers come into Boston and you're askini; me what kind of plans have I got to slop the she said to a reporter. For 10 years Mrs. Hicks has been at the core of resistance In forced school integration in Boston. And although she may not want to talk about her plans, nobody is going to stop her now not a federal court order, not national guardsmen in an armory 20 minutes away, not five Washington lawyers sent here especially to prosecute those who resist. Widespread Resistance Organized resistance to court-ordered school desegrega- tion in South Boston and Hyde park has been widespread and unyielding. Large crowds chanting the school cheer jammed the en- trance to South Boston high school when the first buses brought black children last month. Motorcades have driven protesters to the doors of a news- paper, a federal judge, a cardinal. More than residents marched through South Boston's streets to protest busing one bright fall morning. And a determined school boycott remains in effect in parts of the city, with school department officials estimating lhal students are staying oul of class. Mrs. Hicks is at the core of the resistance, but it spreads beyond her, deep into the spirit of the community. Irish working class South Boston is determined that nobody is going to tell it what to do, and that spirit has crys- tallized into an organization (hat has its roots in almost every home and on every street corner. Not Sheep "They're not sheep. They don't need people to tell them what to says Boston Police Capl. Arthur C. Cadegan, who has lived in South Boston for 45 years. 'Those who have become leaders, almost all of them women, meet secretly every Wednesday in city hall, with Mrs. Hicks, who is a city councilor. Their meetings in a group called ROAR (for Restore Our Alienated Rights) have continued despite the arrival earlier this month of the justice department lawyers. "I don't see any action that is in violation of the court Mrs. Hicks said. And so far, the lawyers apparently agree. So far, they have moved only against violent attempts to block the busing order, and Mrs. Hicks says she is against violence.

He does say he suxf-esled to her that il would be "inappropriate" to picket the home of Federal JmlKe W. Arthur Garrlty, whose court order forced desegregation of the city's schools weeks ano. The women from UOAR run South Muslim's resistance like an election campaign. Tight-Knit Community Almost everybody knows almost everybody else in the light-knit community, and over the last five years a system of block captains has developed. "When something happens, we call the block captains, and they in turn call 10 people, and those people tell their says Virginia Sheehy, a ROAR member. "Within a couple of hours it's very easy lo reach hundreds and hundreds of people." "I've seen evidence of what can Cadegan says. "One day it was a quarter lo 12 and they got word of something going on at the high school. By five minutes of 12 there were a couple of hundred mothers in front of the school." Mrs. Sheehy is one of the organizers of Hie South Boston Information Center, initially opened to counter the official in- formation center in city hall. It has also become the center for an after-school tutoring service at which eight teachers meet four days a week with some of the boycotting students.
