Teenager can manage affairs
Community classes scheduled at Mountain Valley School
By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN
DEAR ABBY: I have a good-looking, intelligent, 18-year-old son who recently graduated from high school. He has been friends with a boy his age for about a year. (I’ll call his friend “Greg.”) He has spent time at Greg’s house and has “slept over” occasionally, as most boys do. I thought nothing of it, as my other three sons (all older) had done the same. He would always tell me where he would be, and when I called, he would always be there. I could always depend on him to be truthful and reliable.
Recently I found out, and he admitted to it, that he was having an affair with Greg's 41-year-old divorced mother! I can't understand this arrangement. What could a jobless, 18-year-old boy have to offer a woman her age?
I am also 41 and am heartsick about this.
What advice can you give me? Should I just sit back and hope the whole mess blows over?
DEAR HEARTSICK: Your 18-year-old son is not a “boy” — he is a man in the physical sense, and what he has to offer this 41-year-old woman is obvious. It is fortunate that you and your son can talk candidly to each other because he needs to fully understand the pitfalls of engaging in such an affair. If your motherly advice fails, perhaps his three older brothers can lay it out for him, man-to-man.
DEAR ABBY: When I married my wife, her body was slim and attractive. Subsequently, she began to

Born today, you like to think of yourself as an intellectual. In truth, however, though you are a quick learner and posses a remarkable memory, you are not an original thinker and for this reason are not essentially a problem solver — or even a problem discoverer. You shine when it comes to collecting and arranging data; creative research, however is another story. You possess great powers of concentration and may even have something of a photographic memory. Still, you need direction for good performance.
You are emotionally stable and possess the kind of control that keeps you from rushing into projects before they are well researched. You should reach your own pinacle of success relatively early in your adult life; genuine excitement, however, may elude you always.
Also born on this date are: John Gavin actor; Elizabeth Asqulthm, author, dramatist.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. I>et your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, APRIL 9
ARIES (March 2I-April 19> — Don't be misled by appearances. Seek to know what is inside the pretty package. Disappointment looms.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You may well achieve a tour-de-force performance today. Keep in mind recently acquired knowledge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20 > — Superior have an eye on you. Don’t disappoint them with a performance that isn’t up to par. Work!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Seek from another a true account of recent happenings. Pass information on where it can do some good.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Dazzle the competition with your performance today. You can win a place you’ve long sought by the day’s end.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Though others bring their trouble to you today they may not really want to hear your advice. Keep silent.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — The best help you can be to another today is simpy to be there with a shoulder to cry on. Don’t despair.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — You would do well to get back into line. Striking out on your own is premature at this particular time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) - Though the advice you have been given may be hard to swallow, in the long run it should serve you well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan 19) - If you don’t find your work interesting, you would do well to seek another outlet for your energy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) - Your basic gregariousness enables you to get in touch with one who can help you out of difficulties.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Marcb 20) - Refuse
unauthorized help or face the consequences later on. Seek to know precisely where you stand now.
gain weight and my desire for her began to diminish commensurately.
I love my wife and have remained faithful to her. My question is this: Can a man learn to enjoy making love to an overweight woman?
DEAR TURNED: Love can move mountains.
DEAR ABBY: I was married for a long time (35 years), then my husband and I got a divorce. The decree was granted, and my husband said he picked up his papers. I never did pick up mine.
In the meantime, he passed away. Now when people inquire as to whether I am a widow or a divorcee, I say I am a widow because I never picked up the divorce papers. Right?
DEAR MRS. E: Wrong. Whether one picks up the papers or not has no bearing on the validity of a divorce decree. What is, is. A divorcee, you are, and a widow you aren’t.
DEAR ABBY: Right on, gal! You told “M. in Ottawa, Canada” that if her fiance would visit a family-type nudist camp he would realize that it is a healthy family experience. Ifs absolutely true! Once I was so inhibited that I dreaded dying because I knew the undertaker would see me naked.
Finally I realized that this was just a painful hangup, so I decided to do something about it. I persuaded my wife to visit a nudist camp with me. We gritted our teeth, disrobed and pretended we were “oldtimers.”
On the second visit it was like the Garden of Eden. “They were naked and they were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:25)
Today I could go on national television nude and not blink an eye. What a relief!
DEAR BEEN: You might not “blink,” but a few million viewers would.

We got a tax break., and a bundle to retire on...all because we started an Individual Retirement Account! We figured, why pay Uncle Sam any more than we had to, when we could be paying ourselves up to $4000 a year as a working couple! ($2000 a year tor individuals.) That’s tax deductible money that is set aside and earning interest (which is tax deterred until retirement time! Just imagine how fast that adds up!) It made sense for us... it could make even more sense for you...because the earlier you start, the more you’ll have when it comes time to retire!
