Good management Is highly prized in pur society. When you stop to think about it, there is no business which has greater genuine need for this than managing a household and raising a family. The changing role of women In the world of work today makes eight out of every 10 work in paid employment at some time during their lives. Instead of an hindrance, this is a challenge that gives women a realization of their true poten- tial. Women must evaluate their activities to bring them in line with their personal and family goals. It becomes the needed incentive for skillful management of, not only in- come, but of time, energy and w........_______ by their own evaluation that they are unaware of their own val- ue. This may cause the hus- hand, hardly need a reminder that their management is just Tliat lament that of any manager in the bus- iness world. The first step is to de- cide what needs to be accom- plished. Here all the family members should express their feelings in order to bring to light the family's goals and purposes. The second step Is to get to- gether the resources, whether they are money, time, physical abilities or talents. This results in several sible alternative plans talents. Some housewives show love is... lacing ap her skates. pos- for reaching the aim. There is a choice of one to be made and how it will be carried out. Then the plan is put into action and carried through. The next step is to accept the consequences and size up the good and weak points of what had been done. Finally the fam- ily moves ahead to other things. These tasks overlap consider- ably. When they are carried out efficiently each hour of time, each dollar, and each unit oi mental effort is used where it will 'add most to total satisfac- tion. Much depends upon the skill of the heads of the household, how much satisfaction they get out of it, and other factors. The point I would like make is that the mother anc housewife has a very important role to play, that there is a ba- sic procedure used in all deci- sion making where-ever found, and that she should adapt it to fit her individual need and per- sonality.

(AP) The state of Alabama and a judge who refused a marriage licence to a white soldier and his black fiancee have been sued by the U.S. government. The action was the first of its kind ever taken by Washington. The suit seeks to void Ala- bama's anti miscegenation Women warned of time limit in seeking abortions OTTAWA (CP) Some women have been mistakenly led to feel that they have up to the 24th week of pregnancy to get a safe abortion, the Associa- tion for the Eepeal of Canadian Abortion Laws said today in a statement. The association, which says it receives up to 50 calls a week for help, says that too many women come to it after 12- weeks of the gestation period have passed. It says the news that the New York abortion law permits preg- nancies to be terminated up to the 24th week of pregnancy has mistakenly led some women to feel that they have that entire period of time in which to get a safe abortion. But while an abortion before regnancies diagnosed as soon as possible and, should it be de- cided that the pregnancy is un- wanted, immediate arrange- ments for an abortion should be made. Women should also be varned against 'doing then- own hopping' in New York state and urged to seek help from ARCAL or organizations who _re able to provide a similar sendee."

Mother does not know where she is nor has she recognized any member of the family for six years. My two brothers and I share the cost and it has kept us broke. Three weeks ago the hospital called to say mother had fallen out of bed, broken her hip and was going into pneu- monia. When we arrived at her bedside, we found her in an oxygen tent, tubes all over the place receiving intravenous feedings and getting poked with needles every three hours. Four days later the doctor triumphantly announced that mother had passed the crisis and he was putting her in Why'can't people be permitted to die in dignity? Why must doctors keep a 94-year-old woman alive with mechanical devices when her mind has been gone for years and the main- tenance of her ravished body is a financial and emotional burden to the family? What can be done about this incredible lunacy and ultimate indignity? A Daughter Dear Daughter: The doctor has an obligation to sustain life as long as possible. If, however, there is no hope and the family says, "Please leave her in God's hands, and forego extraordinary the doctor will follow the family's wishes. My advice reflects the thinking of many distinguished physicians and theologians, including Dr. Irving Page, editor of Modern Medicine, and Pope Pius XII. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband lived at home and helped his parents financially until the day we married. They always resented me. Whenever my mother-in-law visits (about twice a year) she strokes my husband's face and calls him "my little boy." He is over 30 years old and six feet tall. She makes hini uncomfortable when she does this and it burns me up. I've told him how I feel but my husband refuses to say anything because he doesn't want to hurt her feelings. I wish his mother would keep her hands to herself. Do you agree that she is out of B. Dear J. B.: I cannot see that your mother-in-law is hurt- ing you or your marriage by stroking your husband's face and calling him her little boy. No matter how old (or tall) chil- dren get, a mother always sees them as children. You don't say whether or not you have a son. My guess is that you do not.
