Movie: The Inglortoua
DEAR ABBY: You touched a nerve with that letter from “Barbara," who hated to be called “Barb," “Barbie," "Baba" or anything but Barbara. I’m sure she was speaking for all the Victorias, Catherines, Suzannes and Patricias who are called “Vicki," "Cathy," “Suzie" and "Patty" by people they hardly know.
Americans are the worst offenders. At first meeting, Robert becomes “Bob," Williams is “Bill," and Richard becomes “Rich” or, worse yet, "Dick"!
However, there is a sure cure for such rudeness. The offender should be stopped cold with a direct and simple, “My name is Barbara, Catherine, Robert or William,’’ or whatever the person’s name is. If the offender “forgets," a second reminder, or even a third, is in order.
By the way, I prefer Abigail to Abby, and please don’t tell me that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. I am no rose.
CALL ME DOROTHY (NOT DOTTY OR DOT)
DEAR DOROTHY: Offensiveness lies in the ear of the hearer. Many appreciate a friendly nickname, providing it’s not a put
down such as “Fatso," “Skinny," Mouth," “Schnoz" or “Busty."
DEAR ABBY: I’m a newlywed with my own home. I told my mother that I always put out pretty little guest towels for guests to use, but nobody ever used them, and she said you ran a cute poem in your column about the problem a few years ago.
If you run it again, I’ll cut it out, frame it and hang it in my powder room. Thanks.
DEAR SHIRLEY: It was written over 30 years ago by Mabel Craddock of Ventura, Calif., who said she had grown weary of having her guests dry their hands on toilet paper, bath mats and even curtains, leaving her guest towels untouched. She framed it and hung it over her guest towels.
A Guest Towels Speaks Please use me, Guest;
Don’t turn your back Or vacillate.
Don’t dry your hands On petticoat,
I’m here to use;
I’m made for drying Just hanging here Gets very tiring.
DEAR ABBY: I know you might consider this a weird question, but if it is published, I will have the written proof that I am right. Anyway, I would simply like to confirm my belief that South America and North America are two separate continents even though they are connected. My boyfriend insists that they are one continent called “America.” I disagree, and there is no way of convincing him unless he sees it in print.
KNOW IT ALL IN NORTH AMERICA
DEAR KNOW IT: You win. North America and South America are separate continents. Ocassionally they have been referred to as "The Americas," but each is a continent unto itself.
Every teenager should know the truth about drugs, sex and how to be happy. For Abby’s booklet, send $2 and a long, stamped (37 cents I, self-addressed envelope to: Abby, Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 38923. Hollywood, Calif. 90038.
Book gives courage a new name
MARIE. By Peter Maas. Random House. 421 Pages. $16.95.
Hemingway, it is said, once defined guts as “grace under pressure," but readers of Peter Maas’ latest non-fiction book may well agree on another definition for courage: “Mane under pressure."
“Marie" is a fast-paced, almost unbelievable account of a young woman who blew the whistle on a corrupt political machine in Tennessee. It is soon to be a major motion picture as was “Serpico," another Maas book about a policeman whistle-blower in New York.
Marie Ragghianti, a onetime beauty queen, was the victim of a bad marriage. After suffering several beatings, she finally fled with her three young children. While supporting her family with odd jobs,
she put herself through college on scholarships.
In 1976, Marie got a break. She was appointed by newly elected Gov. Ray Blanton as chairman of the state Board of Pardons and Paroles, a well- paid and prestigious position.
Mrs. Ragghianti was trusting and loyal. She also was somewhat naive.
Disappearing files, records with erroneous entries and secret meetings she was not invited to attend seemed to her at first to be merely bureaucratic bungling.
But with evidence mounting of a conspiracy among high administration officials to sell pardons, Marie finally talked with the FBI about it — ignoring advice from friends that she not jeopardize her career.
Marie was fired by an angry governor but took her case to court and won her job back. Blanton chose not to run for reelection, and several of his colleagues wound up behind bars.
Why did Marie rock the boat when she seemed to have it made? Perhaps the answer is contained in a letter she wrote to one of her children:
“Too many people think that as long as they don’t break the law and mind their own business.’ that is enough. That is not enough, nor will it ever be "
In his highly professional style, Maas has written a lively, moving human document, the story of a real and all-too-rare heroine.

Bom today, you have an innate style of work, play and general behavior that causes you to leave your personal mark on everything you do. Highly intelligent and insatiably curious, you are mentally “into” everything. At the same time, you are physically active, never neglecting to exercise the body to the same degree as you exercise the mind. You are extremely sociable, enjoying the company of other people nearly as much as you enjoy your own. A hard worker, you will achieve what you wish, no more and no less.
Although you are attentive to those of whom you are fond, you feel your first “duty" to be toward the development of your own talents. You have a gift for delinating people’s foibles and for dramatizing their behavior. You could reach great literary heights.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
