Several weeks Ego Mendel became engaged to a girl hs met while on vacation last year. She lives in another city but they have been together every weekend lor the past several months. (Usually she comes Yesterday Mendel told me he is going to have "rhino- plasty." I didn't know what he was talking about until he explained that he plans to see a plastic surgeon about getting his nose shortened. I asked him how come he suddenly de- cided his nose was too long, seeing aj; how he had done rather well with it, (Phi Beta Kappa and a Fulhright His answer was what I had suspected. "Phyllis wants me to." Does a woman have the right to ask a man to do this crazy thing? Mendel is a wonderful looking boy. You wouldn't know he had a nose if you didn't see him from the side. I'm afraid he will ruin his looks altogether. Should I call Phyllis and tell her to keep her hands off Mendel's nose? White Plains Mother DEAR MOTHER: No. This is between Mendel and Phyllis. A 25-year-old ought to know what he's doing. If he makes a mistake he'll have a reminder in Hie middle of his face for the rest o[ his life. This decision, however, must be his.

Your support and sympathy of (his tramp has placed you on the side of immorality. God-fear- ing readers will not soon forgive you. I implore you lo recon- sider. Manhattan, Kansas DEAR KAN: Sony, my comments stand as staled. The woman who decided to keep her out-of-wedlock child needed to stay on the job because she had no money and no family to help her. The co-worker who wrote to complain resented the fact that the men on the newspaper were kind lo her. I said they sounded like beautiful guys, and I meant it.
