DEAR ABBY: I just discovered our 15-year-old son (who looks 19) has been having sex with a 17-year-old neighbor girl at her house.

I also learned that the first time these two had sex, he was only 14 years old! His father and I now refuse to let them be together anymore until after he graduates from high school if they still want to at that time. Abby, our son is obsessed with this girl. He swears he is truly in love, and she is the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with. He says life is nothing without her, and he would give up anything to be with 1 her again. Should we let them see each other again or not? The girl's mother has no control over her, and her father travels three-fourths of the time.

Please answer soon and tell us what to do about this pair. AT WIT'S END DEAR AT WIT'S END: Since chaining one or both of these young lovers in their respective basem*nts is neither practical nor humane, you will have to do the next best thing: Let them both know that sex is a very dangerous game for people to play unless they can handle the likelihood of an accidental pregnancy. There is no way you can keep young lovers with raging hormones apart. Making sure they both know all they need to know about sex and birth control is not in effect "giving them permission" it is simply opting for the lesser of two evils. Neighbor should plan ahead DEAR ABBY: A neighbor of mine entertains constantly.

In fact, about all she does. My problem: I do not enjoy going there because her husband looks at me in a way that makes me feel very uncomfortable. If I decline, she is offended and demands an explanation. Then I am put on the spot, because I do not want to tell her the real reason. How should I handle this? ON THE SPOT DEAR ON THE SPOT: Tell her you have "other plans." It could mean you are planning to stay home and wash your hair, or you have already made plans to go elsewhere, or you plan to catch up on your reading or watch your favorite TV program.

The "other plans" excuse could cover a multitude of truths. Efforts to educate lauded DEAR ABBY: Thank you for efforts to educate the public in matters concerning the deaf and hard of hearing. My wife and I are both deaf and mute' (please, not "deaf and and we use sign language to communicate with each other. Area BPW members get chance to show club knowledge At the Nov. 27 meeting of the Schuylkill Haven Business and Professional Women's Club, held at Inn 83, members became contestants in the game of "BPW Jeopardy."

Cyndi McCarthy, first vice president, acted as the game show announcer assisted by game show hostess president, Hermine Murphy. Ann Young and Marian Pflueger, chairwomen of the foundation development and membership committees which had charge of entertainment for the meeting, introduced the game. Florence Fisher, project chairwoman, announced that she and several committee members visited eight women at Rest Haven in November. The next meeting will be the Christmas party at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at Inn 83 featuring a gift exchange among the members.

An Equal Opportunity Past Secondary Business School turmoil DEAR ABBY The ignorance we have encountered from some otherwise intelligent people in places of business would astonish you. I offer this very old but true story to illustrate my point: Two gentlemen were standing together in a crowded commuter train. Seated below them were two deaf-mutes, conversing in sign language.

One of the gentlemen whispered to his friend, "I'm curious about something," whereupon he took a notepad and pencil from his pocket and wrote, "Can you write?" then he handed it to one of the deaf-mutes who, after studying it carefully, slowly drew from his pocket a handsome, expensive fountain pen, emerald in color and trimmed in gold. Then, with a flourish, he penned a few words on the notepad and handed it back to the standing gentleman. Imagine their chagrin when they read in exquisite penmanship, "Can you read?" J.J.P. IN BALTIMORE (Van Buren is a syndicated writer) Where there's a WILL. There's a way YOUR WAY.

That's why you need a will even with a modest salary, limited property. A properly prepared will directs your assets, regardless of their worth, to those you wish to receive them. In some cases, it can also reduce death taxes. Without a will, a rigid formula set by law is followed, and it may not follow your wishes. A will protects you, your spouse and your children.

Your will can be revised at any time as your situation changes. JAMES D. WATT, SR. ATTORNEY AT LAW 305 N. Second Street, Pottsville, PA Phone 628-2611 Hours: Monday-Friday 9:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M.
