DEAR ABBY . . . Taken For Ride By This Year's Model Abigail Van Buren • DEAR ABBY: I am a 47- year i old eligible man who is very i much interested in a beautiful I 26- year- olcl model. She has two, children and her divorce (for which I am paying) is now pending. I bought her a new car and have spent over $2,000 on clothes for her and her children in the last 6 months. She says she will marry me when her divorce is final, but in the mean; time, I don't see much of her. She sees me every Monday night, but on Tuesdays she sees an old boyfriend she says she is letting down easy. On Wednesdays she has to go out with her boss. On Thursday she goes i out with the girls. On Friday she stays home and does her laundry, and the weekends she lets her husband come over (against the orders of his lawyer) because he misses the kids. My friends say I am being taken for a ride. Am I? LAKE FOREST DEAR LAKE: Not only are you being taken for a ride, you'll be lucky if you aren't killed in the traffic. DEAR ABBY: I have an uncle who is getting on in years. He has made a lot of money during his lifetime and has spent very little of it. He's a self- made man and never finished grammar school so we know he's not got any college to leave his money to. Also , he's not a church- type, so they aren't getting any. What I am getting at is this: I know he has a will because he mentions from time to time that he has "changed" it. I don't want to ask any questions of him or the lawyer but how can I find out how much he will leave when he goes? RELATIVE DEAR RELATIVE: I can tell you. He will leave it all. DEAR ABBY: My father-in- law (I'll call him "Papa Joe") has been making his home with, us ever since my mother-in-law died 2 years ago. I am by nature the affectionate type and think nothing of kissing relatives hello and good- By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Perfect for a holiday parly table: stacks of ribbon sandwiches shaped into a tree. When we tried this gay offering at our house we found the sandwiches tasted as good as they looked. The' filling for these sandwiches is an excellent combination of hard-cooked eggs, cream cheese, deviled ham and mus- •ard-^-just savory enough for bom young and old to relish. Once you get the hang of si aping the "tree," there's nothing to it. So if this idea appeals to you, take time to read over the recitae a couple of times; then you'll know what it's all about. Make sure, too, that you have a roomy tray on which to form the tree. You'll find these sandwiches tatte good with tea, coffee or holiday punch. If there are any sandwiches leftover, cover tightly with transparent plastic wrap and store in the refriger- atoi\ RIBBON SANDWICH TREE Sutter, room-temperature soft lVa teaspoons prepared mustard 2 hard-cooked eggs, mashed 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, room-temperatur<* soft S thin slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed 1 can (4%-ounces) deviled ham i thin slices white bread, crusts removed Radishes Small pimiento-stuffed green olives Tiny pickled cocktail onions Cream 1 tablespoon butter and Y2 teaspoon of the mustard.

For tree ornaments, garnish tips of boughs with radish slices cut in star shapes, small stuffed olives, and cocktail onions. If jou like you can insert a clove in one end of each cocktail onion. POLLY'S POINTERS Shrill Whistle Blast Stops Obscene Calls bye. Yesterday when I came home from marketing I gave Papa Joe a little peck on the cheek like always. He grabbed me and said h6 didn't want that kind of kiss. Well, this floored! me because he is 65 and I am 27. I told him that it was the only kind of kiss he was going to get from me, then he tried to force me to kiss him on the lips. I was petrified. Fortunately, he heard my husband's car pull into the carport, so he let me go. Abby, my father-in-law is retired and is home a lot, and now I don't want to be alone in the house with him. He begged me not to tell his son, but I feel so uncomfortable around the old man now I wish he would move. But what excuse can I give my husband? Should I tell him the truth? Papa Joe could afford to live alone if he wanted to, and he has other children he could live with. Please advise me soon. FRIGHTENED DEAR FRIGHTENED: Tell Papa Joe that he has one week to tell his son that he is moving out, and if he doesn't, you will be forced to tell him that you no longer want his father living there. And, why. CONFIDENTIAL TO "STILL LOOKING" IN THE HILLS OF BEVERLY: I agree, a man should be particular, but looking for a long time doesn't necessarily insure the best choice. Many a butterfly flits over all the flowers, only to land on a weed . Everybody has a problem.

A policeman told her to buy herself a good shrill whistle and place it beside the telephone. When one of the calls came, he told her to, hold on to herself a minute until she calmed down, then blow the whistle into, the telephone and give it a long blast. That will probably end the calls from that obnoxious person. Thelma DEAR POLLY — I want to know how to care for an expensive -off- white damask divan. I wonder if any of the readers have had any experience with the foam-backed throws that are advertised. My experience with foam rubber is that it shreds, as it dries out. I do not: want these gritty little pieces between my cushions. I want the fabric to show through any cover I use and my husband and I both dislike plastic. I thought about a slip cover but the divan is such an odd shape the cover would have to be custom-imacte and I need to go a less expensive route. —MRS. B.R.G. DEAR POLLY — I put about two cups of water in a plastic bag, tie the top i n a knot and place it in my freezer. When my children fall or get a bump I have an instant ice ; pack all ready. Wrap in a small 1 towel and it is ready. Replace in the freezer and it's ready j for the next time. —IRENE DEAR POLLY - I always pushed up the sleeves to my . sweater but they would not stay above the elbows as I wanted. I solved this by sewing three rounds of elastic thread, about one- half- inch apart, around the cuffs. A small running stitch • was made on the inside of each cuff, pulling a little to make it snug. This thread, is very fine, gives easily when stitched and holds securely. My sleeves now stay up. —MARIE DEAR POLLY — To remove marks left by adhesive on ma­ ny surfaces I use butter or oil. Just rub a little into the adhesive and it should come right off. This also works on car windows. —MRS. R.D.M. 1 ! You will receive a dollar if !
