DEAR ABBY: If I were Dear Abby for ten minutes, I would tell every woman in the world not to marry a mamma’s boy. One of the tip-offs is a man who is between 30 and 40 and not married
I married one of these yoyos and it’s the dumbest thing I ever did Although he’s a steady worker, that’s all he knows how to do. I have to get him up in the morning, tell him what to wear and even when to change his clothes. He’s so childish and helpless.
He doesn’t even know how to kiss He clamps his lips together and presses them on my lips. I’ve tried to teach him how. but even after five years, he hasn t improved
He doesn’t know the first thing about how to make love, either. So for the last two years, an hour before he gets home. I start getting a “migraine ”
I’d go to a marriage counselor, but he won t go and no woman can save her marriage alone.
Mamma’s boys just want a cook and housekeeper and a bed partner for two minutes once a week If I could get a job and supjmrt myself, I'd leave him.
STUCK IN PEKIN, ILL. DEAR STICK Nobody is stopping you from trying. One woman’s leftovers are another woman s banquet.

The Fords Move into White House
The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon , Aug 19, 1974
Woman Begins Career as Typist; Parlays Herself into Millionairess
By Helen Thomas
WASHINGTON (UPI) -President and Mrs Ford will spend their first night in the White House Monday night, breaking a longtime presidential custom by sharing the same lied.
As far back as the Franklin I) Roosevelts, and perhaps longer, separate bedrooms were used bv the President and his wife
“After 25 years of marriage, why should they be separated because they are living in the White House?” said Nancy Howe, the First Lady’s personal secretary.
Mrs Howe said tin1 possibility Betty Ford will be disturbed by late night phone calls “will lie nothing new to Mrs Ford She’s accustomed to such calls ’’
The Fords’ double bed has been moved into the suite formerly occupied by Pat Nixon The former President’s bedroom will be transformed into a combination study and hideaway Ford’s favorite blue leather lounge chair and hassock already have been moved into the study and his bicycle exerciser also will be installed there.
The Fords spent part of Sunday saying goodby to about 20 neighbors who came to their home in Alexandria, Va.

NEW YORK (UPI) — Spanish-born Adda Holder started her (J. S career as a typist Then with a bank loan of $3,(KIO and some of her savings, she went into business and parlayed herself into being boss of a multimillion dollar empire of diversified holdings
All this she did in 20 years The beautiful Mrs Holzer, tawny haired and suntanned, now is 40 She has two sons, 20 and 14
Her secrets to be shared with others as a start’ “Be prompt in paying your bills,” she said. “Be careful to whom you’re selling so they too pay promptly. Work hard I never stop, never stop thinking.”
She had thoughts, too, on how women can advance to executive suites in the years ahead — “the rest of the 1970s and the 80s will be the era of womanpower Women no longer will be segregated into second-class citizens ”
Start Like A Man
Said Mrs Holzer. “To arrive in management, you start like a man does Background yourself with a good education (she has a doctorate in philosophy) Don’t lie afraid to go over some subordinate’s head Go to the top with your ideas, even if you have to wait until 5 30 when most everyone else has left the office.
“Come to such conversations with resources, your ideas for innovations in the company. How to reach more people. how to get more sales ”
Mrs. Holzer, whose financial interests range from real estate to the Broadway theater, also is thinking of the* woman who’s in her 40s and 50s and wants to go to work for the first time.
“I’m considering starting a school for housewives who have no general knowledge of business operation,” she said “Some women can’t even read a business report.”
Mrs. Holzer was born in Madrid of a well-to-do, but strict, family. Married at 17, she came to the United Stales in 1954 to escape a union that wasn’t working out
With her knowledge of languages (she’s fluent in several), a job at the United Nations as interpreter was a natural. She also went to work at the same time as a typist at an advertising agency.
When she remarried, to Walter Dushin, an eminent scientist then working for the Pentagon iii Houston, she wont into anothei investment area With a Houston bank loan of that ITI (MKI and her savings of about $17.(NKI. she started a hospital supply business
Dushin died in 1982 and she returned to New York, going into the import-export business, working in the main with South American countries. At the same time, she went to work at Columbia university teaching Spanish and Spanish literature “I figured if the other business failed, I needed a steady job,” she said the other day in an interview
In her Kl years at Columbia, she also finished her dissertation for her doctorate from the University of Madrid and began writing books.
Now. she s the wife of Peter Holzer, whose family owns a cargo shipping business She s also expanded her own management consultancy, invested in gas and oil properties in Louisiana and Ohio, and of all seemingly unlikely things, the theater.
Society for Women
Spanish-born Adela Holzer, who started her U. S. career as a typist, used a bank loan and some of her savings to go into business and parlayed herself into becoming boss of a multi-million dollar empire.
President Gerald Ford and his wife, Betty, leave their private home for the last time to attend church services. When the Fords attend church services next Sunday they will be living in the White House as the family plans to move into the executive mansion Monday.
