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 resignation. To allow human beings to die with dignity is not “mercy killing.” When death is imminent, a patient should be kept as com-* fortable and pair.-free as possible, but these patients will die as surely and inevitably as they | did in all the centuries before “modern medicine.” Where is it written that an appointment 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, I 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 too late to do anything about iu I am terribly embarrassed because 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 her—or even writing them all myself, but I don’t want to stir up trouble. 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 acknowledge her gifts, and I would offer to help her. If she refuses, I would write to those who sent her gifts out of friendship to me, apologize for her negligence, and thank them myself.

Mrs. Graham received it for the Post’s reporting of the Watergate scandal. In an address prepared for the Arizona Newspapers Assn. convention, Mrs. Graham disputed those who say that “somehow the press created the agony of Watergate in the sense of having caused the nation’s turmoil. ‘ The President is -o weakened, he can hardly govern — the argument goes -and this is the doing of the press. “We d’sagree—profoundly. For the most important fact, and the only really relevant fact about the array of offenses known as Watergate, is that they happened ” She conceded that Watergate coverage has been more sustained, probing and extensive than that of previous government .scandals.

A judge must approve addition of the insurance companies as defendants in the original suit, but such approval is usually given, according to a lawyer defending Beverly. The action filed Monday charges the insurance firms with violating federal antitrust regulations. A report by the Retail Credit Co. of Alexandria, Va., said a 49-year-old man “was a constant visitor” at her apartment when she lived in Hartford, Conn., the action claims. She called the credit company report “meaningless gossip.” Incomprehensible Her attorney, Katheryn Emmett of Bridgeport, said the suit is an attack “on the basic insurance company underwriting practices which are totally incomprehensible to the average person but which serve to enrich the insurance companies. “How can anyone refute a claim of ‘practically living’ with someone? It’s like saying someone is ‘practically beating his wile,’ ” the lawyer said. resignations, convictions and indictments growing out of it, she said that Watergate showed “a pervasive, indiscriminate use of power and authority.” No other scandal, Mrs. Graham said, “has been so compounded by mistakes and mis-asscssments on the part of those under investigation.” She blamed those e.ror for prolonging and intensifying “the national anguish.” Mrs. Graham defended the Post’s reliance on leaks of information and on sources who could not be identified in reporting th** story. Th*- newspaper, she said, double-checked every bit of mat* rial before printing it and did not publish much which could not be confirmed but later turned out to be true. “We now know that. I a n g before th*- Watergate burglars, Whit*- House aide were trying in many ways ... to intimidate and discredit the* press and manipulate public opinion to their own ends,” she said. ^\CT U$£., <***% ***•■■ * % Iff A ny Decor “ CEDAR RAPIDS PAINT 509 3rd Av*.
