County to help celebrate the DAR centennial. To do something worthwhile, over and above the usual, the group must elicit the help of everyone. The country's needs:
• Good citizenship: Let us think. How can we be a belier parent, leacher, pupil, worker, neighbor, a leader in civic affairs and government?
• United Slates flag: Do we show respect for ii? Pledge allegiance to ii proudly, fly it on special days and be able to tell what ii stands for?
• Conservation of natural resources:
A pressing need in the arca we live in is the conservation of water. We ask each individual to comply, not only with rules and guidelines set out for us, but with ways of our own. The trick is awareness — each time we turn the faucet on — is it really necessary?
• Historic conservation: This includes documents and artifacts to. buildings and places. If it tells the his- • tory of the country, it is worth conserving. We ask that you observe, determine and speak up.
• Education: Promote education in young people, children and adults. The DAR gives scholarships in several categories which include music, medical and dental and awards for patriotism.
• Veterans and Veteran-Patients: Is there a veteran-patient who is forgotten by some of us? The DAR is anxious to help supply their needs. Every DAR chapter has a chairman and you can help by contacting your local library or chapter president, Mrs. Henry Guenzcl, New Braunfels, who will tell you how to reach her chairman. The DAR has an old saying: D is for determination, A is for action, R is for results. "We can accomplish much more with your help to make the next century of service to the nation outstanding," Mrs. Gucn/.vl said.
The Dec. 27 meeting at the North Building was low in attendance because of Christmas trips. Vice President Bill Bell presided and Gary Mathis led the group in singing “America” and the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. J.A. Coffey, chairman of the spiritual aims committee, led in prayer. The main program was a report on Santa photos. The final Saturday at Wal-Mart, there were about 80 photos taken of children sitting on Santa's lap and about 60 who didn’t have a photo made. Santa Bill Bell told of some shy children who seemed to be afraid of his beard or costume and how one girl would talk to him but not go near him so he talked lower and lower and gradually moved nearer to hear him and finally touched his head. Then the question of winter weather was brought up and Ken Allen told of the winds up at Wenatchee, Wash., blowing the snow straight across the roads. Of course, former West Texans couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell of the sandstorms. One was of the ending of a sandstorm, in which the high wall of sand was slowly coming as the wind was almost stopped and you could see three different colors of sand in that giant wall.
The New Braunfels Area Quilt Guild met Dec. 15 at the home of Georgia Freeing for a potluck meal and Christmas party. Forty members and guests exchanged fabrics. Guild officers were presented with thankyou gifts and numerous door prizes were given.
Ruth Fritzler won more than 30 “Christmas Poinsettia'' squares drawing. Hostesses were Frances Wilson, Jacque Zunker and Gailya Baker assisted by Faith and Ginger Freiling, who also provided piano music.
The quill guild’s regular meetings are held at 9:30 in the New Braunfels Christian Church fellowship hall the third Saturday of each month.
Retired Eagles Activity Club
The Retired Eagles Activity Club met Dec. 14 at Eagles Hall. There were 88 members present at the Christmas party and they spent the evening playing cards, dominoes and bunco. There were a number of members sick and could not come for the Christmas party.
There were six birthdays and two anniversaries in December. There was one death. Everyone enjoyed the Christmas dinner and thanks go out to Anita’s Catering and her group of people for the food. The next meeting will be Jan. 20 from 2 to 6 pm. ami installation of officers is on the program. The members will be sandwiches, except those who have a birthday or anniversary will bring cake or cookies that Sunday. The Feb. 8 meeting will be from 5 to 9 p.m.

DHAR ABBY: Our married daughter, wha lives 300 miles from us, keeps her home spic and span, but when she visits us with her family (several times a year), she reverts to her teen-age messiness. She never makes a bed, hangs up a towel, cleans a sink or washes a dish.
Her children, ages 3, 5 and 8. always pick up their toys at home, but when they visit Grandma, their toys are everywhere — even when they leave for home. My husband and I love to have them visit, but picking up after them is no small chore.
Housework never was one of my favorite things, but I always kept a fairly tidy house and cleaned up after myself. My daughter does that, too.

them whatsoever. Children develop backbone and a sense of responsibility when their parents put a little weight on their shoulders.
DEAR WEARY: You went wrong when your daughter and her brood visited you the first time, and in an effort to make them feel welcome, you picked up after them without suggesting that they make their own beds, keep their bathroom clean and instruct their children to put their toys away. But ifs never too late to set her straight.
Parents encourage laziness and carelessness in their children by making no demands on
DEAR ABBY: I recently received your booklet titled "What Every Teen Should Know." I found it to lie both interesting and informative, hut I was left with an unanswered question Please don't think I'm stupid — hut:
In the section “How to Get Pregnant." you cited the case of a virgin who became pregnant after engaging in heavy petting Is it possible, then, to transmit the AIDS virus in the same manner? It seems likely to me. hut even with all the informa
tion presented to students about AIDS, I have never heard this question addressed
Please hurry your reply.
CURIOUS IN HERMISTON, ORE
DEAR CURIOUS: Acc >rding to the Centers for Disease Control, there have been no reports of transmitting the AIDS virus through heavy petting. However, such activity should be avoided with any male partner who.is HIV-infected or who is at risk for HIV infection.
DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I dine out at a restaurant, we have encountered what we consider a disgusting, offensive practice.
When we are in the middle of our meal, invariably some middle-aged to older man at another table will whip out a handkerchief and vigorously blow his nose, making loud honking noises. Obviously, this does little for our appetite and dining pleasure.
Naturally, we would never bring this to the attention of the offending person, so we thought Dear Abby would relay the following message: “There are at least two people on this planet who regard blowing one’s nose at the table as grossly ill-mannered ” REPULSED IN FLORIDA
DEAR REPULSED: Make that three.
