Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 13, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa By Abigail Vu DEAR ABBY: I am a 20- year-old girl away at college. I have an older brother in grad- uate school. My mother, who was 52, died very suddenly and even though we didn't get along very well, I was very upset by her death. She and my father, 53, didn't exactly have an ideal marriage and I'm sure they stayed together because of my brother and me. Last night my father phoned to tell me that he was dating a 38-year-old woman who was working for him, and it could be "serious." Abby, my mother has been dead only six months! Don't you think out of respect to her memory he could have waited for at least a year before dat- ing? 1 talked to my brother and he didn't see anything wrong with it. I told my father that as long as he was seeing this woman I wanted nothing more to do with him. He seemed to think I was unreasonable. What do you think? Was I wrong? CONFUSED DEAR CONFUSED: The amount if time one waits be- fore "dating" has nothing to do with respect. The time to show respect Is while (ho mate Is living. And yes, I think yon were wrong to sever your rela- tionship with your father. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter was married at nne of Hie loveliest weddings this town has ever seen. We had every- thing planned down to the last detail, and nothing was left to chance. Needless In say. it cost us a lot of money, but it was worth it. The morning nf the wed- ding, the minister who was In officiate phoned to say he had 14 hmiseguests his three daughters anil their husbands, liis mother and dad and six grandchildren and could he bring them In I he wedding, the reception and dinner as well? We had planned a sit- 'down dinner alter the recep- tion. I couldn't very well tell him he couldn't, so 1 said yes. Have you ever heard of such nerve? 1 am still upset about it and wonder if there was any way lo have turned him down politely without making an en- emy of him for life. I later learned thnl two of his (laughters were not "visiting" as he said they were. They had recently moved to town. FUMING IN FLORIDA DEAR FUMING: I can't say whether a negative response would have made an enemy of him for life, bat you could have told him that you couldn't accommodate 1-1 extra. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self- addresied envelope, please. He'el look great hi a new bought or band- niitdc. But there arc only 11 more days until Christmas. The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Frl., Dec. 13, IK74 9 Beauty Products Are Better By Gay Putty HEW YORK (UPI) That stereotyped vision of the little wonwn retiring at night smeared with cold cream and laden with curlers has disappeared like vanishing cream At skin ore and mtkcup artist who travels the United States and abroad talking with women individually and hold- ing ctlnlcs says that technical advances in beauty products have caused the changes. Thy modern woman uses the speedy method of hot cur- lers or the warm blnw.rtrv comb Instead of the sleeplng-ln- curlcrs routine. And nighttime treatment creams no longer arc gooey, greasy concoctions that inspired cartoonists and smKired the pillows. Night creams still lubricate but they are absorbed quick- ly. The opinion comes from Avy Vak- nine, boim in Morocco and in the field since he opened two beauty saUons in Paris in I960. 'Creates' Faces In 1971., he joined Charles of the-Ritz as beauty director because he decided it was more pleasure "to create faces than hair styles." Vaknine believes in keeping skin care simple clean- sing, toning to tighten pores and smooth the skin, moisturiz- ers to protect against dryness and provide a smooth base for makeup, and Hie night treatment to moisturize and firm. Neglect these steps, which use only a few minutes each day, and the sfcin's natural and environmental enemies take their toll, he saSd. "There's no such thing as a said the handsome cosmetologist. "Women ask me how long before they sec results. I tell tJiem maybe it took 30 years to create those unwanted lines. It may take a year to get rid of them. Con- stant care is To Vaknine, .soap and water arc a no-no combination but he concedes that ia lot of women feel their skin is clean only if they scrub it. ladies to be gentle with the skin. How some clean is frighten- ing scrubbing, pulling, working against muscles. "You have only one face. And one neck, (iive the neck the same treatment you give the face." Vaknine said skins today have a tougher time staying young than they did, for instance, "when my grandmother used lemon juice twice a week to cut excess oil." He said the skin's enemies are pollution, hard water, heat In the winter which is overdrying A humidifier at summertime air-conditioning which dries, improper diet (excess of snacks, sweets and alcohol, and over-exposure to the "A suntan is said Vaknine. "But you damage the skin if too long in the sun. You're losing the natural oils. Once the lines are created, it is almost impossible to replen- ish that oil." "The face gave way to legs when the mini was he said. "Now, with the new longer clothes, it's hack to the face again." Heritage "If you must tuse said Vaknine, "use a deep cleanser first. you can get water soluble cleansers. I think the soap and water thing is part of our puritanical her- itage. "Young people will scrub and scrub because of oily skin and acne. I tell them- soap removes only the surface and will just let the pores get torger and blackheads form. "You'll see the ojder woman using less water. I tell my Board Member Votes Despite Possible Conflict of Interest PORTLAND, Ore.

If you think It would influence you, you shouldn't vote on it." Mrs. York voted to approve the purchase. American Scene 1974 by NEA.
