Thursday, September 5, 1974 HOPE (AKK.) STAft Page Three Miss Rhonda Rogers to wed September 28 Clyde Davis photo MISS RHONDA JEAN ROGERS Co-worker's wife accuses her of adultery By Abigail Van Buren c 1974 til Chicago Trlbunc-N. Y. Ntws Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old married woman. I've never had an experience like this in all my life—that's why it's so upsetting E6 me. It all started when a co-worker, who must be in his late 40's, started kidding around at work and calling me his "girl friend." There was nothing to it. It was just a joke. He recently had a 25th wedding anniversary and I sent him and his wife a card. When I was out sick last year, he sent me a card. Well, one evening last week, out of the blue 1 get a phone call from his wife. She started yelling and hollering and accusing me of having "an affair" with her husband. I was shocked. Then her husband took the phone away from her and apologized, saying she was having one of her "spells." I avoided him at work. Last evening, she called again. This time my husband answered, and again she ranted and carried on about me and her husband. Finally, my husband hung up on her. A'bby, she sounds like a crazy woman. She could even kill me I love my job but maybe I should quit. How should 1 handle this? UPSET DEAR UPSET: The woman is either disturbed or she drinks. (Maybe both.) Don't quit your job. There are laws to protect people against harrassment of this kind. Have your lawyer write her a letter. (He'll know what to say.) That should do it. DEAR ABBY: Neither my husband or I drink or smoke, and whenever we have a family gathering there is always some member of the family who brings a bottle of wine. In order not to hurt their feelings, we always open the bottle, but we never partake of it. My husband and 1 do not like drinking in our home, so how do we tactfully get the idea across? These relatives read vour column, so if this is printed, maybe they'll take the hi nt . TWO TEETOTALERS DEAR TWO: Don't count on it. Tell those who are apt to bring a bottle that when you want alcohol served in your home, you'll provide it. It's your home, so don't be bashful. DEAR ABBY: About the 80-year-old man who looks like 60, loves to dance, and puts on a show wherever there s music much to the embarrassment of his daugther: My'grandfather is 86. He talks too loud, scratches wherever he pleases (right in front of everybody), falls asleep in restaurants, and is always giving me advice. He also diapered me when I was a baby, taught me how to fish, hugged me no matter how dirty 1 was, and loved me no matter how bad I was. That old man can do anything he wants to do as long as 1 have anything to say about it. And when he dies, I'll cry. Not because the end will have come for a man who has had a full and beautiful life, but because no one else will see the twinkle in his eye. G. CONFIDENTIAL TO "YEA OR NAY": NAY! The most underpaid and abused people in the world axe NOT waiters and waitresses — they are our elected officials. Contrary to what many believe, there is not one truly dedicated Congressman or Senator who wouldn't be better off financially doing something else. Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

That's all to the good because two peanut-butter sandwiches plus a glass of milk supply about three-quarters of the protein a school-age child needs every day. On a day when a sandwich is of another variety, tuck in a couple of Peanut Butter Bran Muffins. These, unlike most other muffins, are good cold as well as hot from the oven.

The answer, short of physically pushing back the walls, is fooling the eye to give the impression of more space. Mrs. Viola P.

The Rev. and Mrs. Wayne Pesterman of Ft. Worth (he was pastor of the First Christian Church of Hope in 1936) visited Mrs. Jewel Moore Sr. on Wednesday. They were on their way to Cincinnati, Ohio to visit their son, Dr. Neal Pesterman until Christmas. Making bags is a family affair By Joanne Schreiber For Mary Mortimer embroidery is a family affair. Mary and seven of her 11 children make bags, hats and fans of coconut palm leaves and embroider them with raffia to sell to the guests of a hotel on Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas. Although Mary does her work in raffia, the stitches are the traditional ones taught in American crewel classes. Mary, a large woman with a smile as sparkling as the island waters, learned this local art only 12 years ago. She taught the craft to her children, including her two boys. She has found a ready market with the souvenir- buying guests of the Flagler Inn on Paradise Island. Now, she creates her products in the thatched-roof shop in the hotel grounds, chatting with the guests and offering informal instruction. For those who would like to decorate plain straw bags with island motifs, Mary suggests buying plastic raffia, which is easier to work with than the natural product. A large tapestry needle, with a blunt end, is preferred. To start, sketch your design lightly with pencil on the bag, using a glass or small saucer to trace the circles. Work the large motifs, first, then fill in with the smaller stitches. To make the sunflowers, work through the center of the circle to the outside edges, using the raffia dou- Embroidery in raffia for straw bags from the Caribbean are based upon traditional crewel stitches. Shown are the sunflower, the leaf, the cross and the French knot. ble. The leaves are done in the classic leaf stitch, starting with the longest stitch in the middle, and working in shorter stitches down the sides. The roses are simple French knots and are done to fill in the spaces between the larger leaf and sunflower designs. A cross stitch will serve beautifully as a border design. An elongated cross stitch is used for a small leaf. With a plain straw bag, a bag of raffia and a little know-how, you can fool your friends into thinking you've enjoyed an exotic island vacation. And isn't that worth a little effort':' Helpful Hints Snacks away from home fritter away the food dollar. The mother of a college girl brought that point home sharply when she had her daughter keep a daily record of what she spent for coffee, colas, doughtnuts, sandwiches, potato chips, pizza, etc. The coed couldn't understand why she was broke all the time until she totaled her "snacks," for the week. Keeping such a daily record can hfcip plug a hole in the budget and is quite useful in finding money to spend on necessities. Brick "stripes" expand room. There are some easy decorating tricks you can apply that don't take scads of time or money. One successful room- expanding idea is to paint your walls a pastel hue. Lighter shades tend to open up a loom. Another trick that still requires just a can of paint and a roller is to accent one wall— usually that opposite the greatest source of light—in a darker color than the remaining three. Again, this accent achieves drama, while "moving back" the other walls. Color, then, on walls should be a careful consideration when trying to visually expand the living area of a room. Floors are another basic purchase that can offer greater dimension to space, if you think of them as being your "fifth wall." Just heed the same sound principles about scale of pattern and hue of color. Like furniture that should be scaled so that it doesn't dwarf a tiny room, your floor pattern should complement the size of the room it's in. Stay away from enormous flowers or bold geometries if your room is cramped. An attractive vinyl floor covering pattern would be a subtle pebbled stone motif, or small bricks in a cramped attic with dormers, for instance. A further tie-in of these decorating room-expanders is careful fabric selection. Keeping to solids or small-scaled patterns will make a room appear more spacious. But if you already have a sofa covered in a busy print and boldy flowered drapes as well, you can neutralize both by pushing the sofa right in front of the drapes. Pattern on pattern will camouflage these knock-out pieces so they won't dwarf your room. Bet you didn't know dept. popcorn contains more food energy than 96 percent of all edible foods . . .

Main Mail orders filled Family Lib He likes kids just the way they are By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne and Lew Koch) If Arthur Greenwald had watched Speed Racer or the Flinstones on tv instead of Mister Rogers, Fred Rogers might not have an honorary degree from Yale University and Yale University might not have an honors student developing films for children like Arthur Greenwald. It all began 20 years ago when Arthur noticed a man on a local Pittsburgh children s show, only this man was different from the clowns and Mr. Bobs who always talked down to children. This man, Fred Rogers, spoke softly and right to a kid, as if he understood what was on his mind and liked him. He taught Arthur he wouldn't go down the drain when the toilet was flushed; he showed him the barber wouldn't scalp him or cut him with those long scissors,, Mister.RQgers.went to the doctor's office and actually got'a shot. Yes it did hurt, but just a little and there was no hole left when the needle came out. Arthur Greenwald did not forget Mister Rogers when he went to Yale University. By pursuing courses in filmmaking and psychology, he began to understand how to use film to present children with respect and realism. With a Yale professor of psychiatry, Dr. Robert Abramovitz, Arthur produced a film called "Pretending", the first of a projected film curriculum on child development. Arthur finally met Fred Rogers and found Mister Rogers was even nicer in person. Why shouldn't a man who has done so much for children receive an honorary degree? Why shouldn't one of the major centers for the study of children like the Yale Child Study Center sponsor such a candidate'/ These were the questions Arthur asked and then launched a one-man campaign to answer - successfully. So at commencement this year, Fred Rogers, along with the foreign minister of Japan, the chairman of Common Cause and the presiding bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was awarded an honorary degree by Yale University. In part, the citation reads: "... Emphasizing the uniqueness of each of your viewers, you have helped children resolve their conflicts and stand up to their fears and explore their fantasies with imagination and intelligence ..." Fred Rogers confided in Arthur his long range plans for a film to prepare children for the frightening and sometimes traumatic experience of hospitali/ation. Arthur immediately volunteered to work on the project, visiting hospitals, working and studying with the faculty of the Yale Child Study Center and the staff that produces Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Family Communications Inc. This year Yale appointed Arthur "Scholar of the House . an honor reserved for only 12 seniors which will allow Arthur to continue his valuable work on films for and about children. Not every child who watches will go to the head of his class but a diet of "1 like you just the way you are," "You've got to do it," "Everybody's fancy, everybody's fine," has got to be more motivating than "Yabadaba-doo."
