Club notesKiwanis Club
The Kiwanis Club held its monthly directors meeting at 6:45 a.m. Monday at Ray and Beverly’s Restaurant. The treasurer handed out copies of November and December receipts and disbursements, with current balances. The secretary presented the December report to Kiwanis International for approval by directors. Copies were also sent to Texas-Oklahoma District Secretary and to Division 5 Lt. Gov. Bob Howell. Copies of the weekly bulletin from Greater Randolph Area Kiwanis Club were reviewed for ideas, and suggestions on projects. President Jack Muehleisen reported on refilling about half of the gum ball machines. At one location, the employees reported that they liked the gum balls themselves. There were a couple of touching reports on delivering Christmas baskets. The directors voted to donate the two copier machines left over from the garage sale to the Salvation Army.Preceptor Rho of Beta Sigma Phi
The Preceptor Rho of Beta Sigma Phi sorority met at Violet Voges home Monday. It was announced that the sorority would have a Supper Bowl parth at Gene and Deannie Chollett’s home on Jan. 22. We will have our annual Valentine’s Day party Feb. IO. Ginger Cadded was elected our Valentine Girl for 1984. Carol Schumann won the door prize.
Karen Barganier gave a program on quilts. She had several quilts that her mother had made in the last few years. She also had one quilt that her grandmother had made. She gave a history on quits. In the
colonial times a young girl was expected to make 13 quilts before she got married. Some think this was the beginning of our present day bridal showers. Karen explained to us how to take care of quilts. If a quilt is old it should be dry cleaned. To store a quilt, it should be rolled and put into a pillow case. Even if not used it should be taken out and washed every five years. A quilt shouldn’t be washed more than 2 times a year.Goodwin Extension
The Goodwin Extension Homeakers met Jan. 5 in the home of Jerry Klink. Evelyn Hazel presented a list of topics from which to choose programs for the year. A few that were chosen are: public speaking tips, fix ahead meals, color coordination, and health risk appraisal. With such a variety of programs, we feel it will be a productive as well as informative year. Refreshments were served to 14 members.Lamdi Psi
Lamda Psi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi held its meeting Monday at the home of Cindy Dees. The club hosted a Junior Miss send-off for Barbara May, who will participate in the Texas Junior Miss program later this month. Many of the contestants from the New Braunfels Junior Miss were there to wish Barbara good luck. A video of Junior Miss announcing the winners was shown.New Braunfels Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary

She entered the hall, which was decorated in the theme “You Light Up My Light.” Supper was served to her and 162 members and guests. The guests were from Blanco, Spring Branch, Canyon Lake and the San Antonio auxliaries.

ROCHESTER, NY. (AP) - That ain’t no way to treat the language, the Society for the Advancement of Good English declared upon examining Miller Brewing Co.’s ads for its Ute beer.
So Miller gets SAGE’s third annual Dunce Cap of the Year award for proclaiming that Ute beer has “less calories” than regular beer. (If anything, SAGE says, Ute has “fewer calories.”)
“The tendency is toward increasingly horrible uses of the language,” lamented Lawrence easier of Pittsford, president and founder of SAGE, which announced its dubious honors on Wednesday.
Runners-up were Cinemax Corp., for proclaiming “We’re doing movies good,” and Burger King Corp. for its kicker, “And that ain’t peanuts.”
The Nashville Songwriters Association won a runner-up spot for such grammatical crimes as “Don’t put no headstone on my grave" and “My heart won’t pay me no mind."
And, of course, for, “That ain’t no way to treat a lady.”
Doctor should use her title
ME AVE NC TOBERY IPOUt 0 WAVE ADVEfiTICED IN TMICCPAPEl
By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN
DEAR ABBY: I have a question about wedding invitations. My husband is a physician, as are our daughter and her fiance.
Should we mention all the doctors? (I would think so.) Do we use our daughter’s last name, or do we use her first name only, preceded by “Doctor”? Or does she have to forego her title? (My husband doesn't think ifs fair to use the man’s title and not the woman’s. I agree.)
If we were to used the following, would it look like a medical convention?
Dr. and Mrs. Charles Cutwell request the honor of your presence at the marriage ai their daughter Dr. Elizabeth Jane Cutwell and
Dr. Paul Erie Pillpusher
MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
DEAR MOTHER: AU the doctors are enUUed to use their titles. Aud I think they should. However, the decision should he left to your daughter.
DEAR ABBY: I’m another longtime reader who never thought I’d see the day when I’d be writing a Dear Abby letter, but here I am because I am in desperate need of your advice.
I’U try to make this short: I have met and fallen in love with a man who has every quality I’ve ever wanted in a man. I am 35 and he is 42, so we both have been around a while.
The problem is, he doesn’t know how to kiss. How can I teU him without hurting his feelings? We have so much in common and I know we could have a wonderful relationship. We are both attractive, sensitive and affectionate, but when he kisses me, it’s Uke kissing a board!
Please answer soon. He is a terrific man in every other way, and if he knew how to kiss, he’d be perfect.
KISSING A BOARD
DEAR KISSING: Don’t worry about hurting his feelings. He wUl forgive you after he becomes an expert. He is obviously keeping his Ups stiff, so tell him to relax and kiss you sofUy, genUy and tenderly. Better yet, reverse roles and give him a demonstration.
Nobody is a great kisser naturally — everyone had to learn from someone. So teach him!
DEAR ABBY: Last year my daughter was married. She is not a religious person and neither is he. Her background is Christian and his is Jewish. They wanted some kind of church wedding, but our minister refused to marry them, and her fiance couldn’t find a rabbi who would marry them. I know this sounds terrible, but it's true.
I agonized over it until a friend suggested the Unitarian Church. I called the local pastor, and he was deUghted to perform the ceremony. He became ill at the last minute, so a young woman substituted in his place. She performed an absolutely beautiful ceremony. It was enchanting! She combined the Jewish tradition (the groom stomped on the glass) and she brought in some of the Christian traditions, too.
Many guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. This idea may be helpful to others.
RANCHO PALOS VERDES
DEAR RANCHO: I’m sure it will be. Thanks for sharing.
