DEAR ABBY: My wife (I'll call her Ruth) has a sister I'll call Peggy. Peggy's husband is loaded with money, and Peggy spends a fortune on clothes. Ruth and Peggy wear the same size, so Peggy sends Ruth boxes of dresses, coats and shoes that she's tired of. All the stuff is just like new, and Ruth looks like a million dollars in them. . , Maybe I shouldn't feel this way, Abby, but it bothers me when I see my wife all dressed up in her sister's clothes. Although I can't afford to buy my wife the kind of clothes Peggy sends her, she wouldn't exactly go around in rags if she dressed in clothes that were within our income. I've come awfully close to asking Ruth not to accept any more clothes from her sister, but I'm not sure it's the thing to do. I suppose it's selfish of me, Abby, but a guy can t help how he feels. What do you think? P POOR WORKING STIFF DEAR STIFF: I think you should tell your wife what you've told me. Talk it over, and maybe you can reach an agreeable compromise. You're right, a guy can't help how he feels, and I, for one, can understand your feelings. DEAR ABBY: My grandmother was one-sixteenth black. She married a white man. Neither she nor any of her children had Negroid features, and they all married whites. The problem is my wife. I told her of my ancestry before we were married, and it didn't seem to make any difference. But now she refuses to have any children for fear one might be coal-black. What are the chances of this occurring?^ DEAR NEEDS: Zero. A child will be no darker than his darkest parent. DEAR ABBY: I am blind at age 14, and take my Seeing Eye dog Juniper with me everywhere I go. Kids will often try to pet Juniper. I like kids, but Juniper is trained not to be frie&fly with strangers. If he growls, the mother grabs their children and scream, "what a vicious dog! " Abby please print this so parents will tell their kids to stay away from Seeing Eye d ^ ENNIE AND JUNIPER DEAR JENNIE: Thank you for your informative letter. This might be a good time to warn people against trying to be friendly with ALL strange dogs. Many dogs are used for protection these days and are trained to attack strangers who come too close.

By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Even in New York City this year, tomatoes are on the vine — in backyards of brownstones, in community gardens on terraces and in large pots or window boxes on sunny windows or fire escapes. From what visitors from other states tell us and from what we've seen on our travels, not since World War II has so much tomato growing been going on all over the country. Because tomatoes, red or green, have to be gathered before frost ruins them, you may want to consider making oldtime Green Tomato Mincemeat. This recipe is easy to follow and the result is delicious, ready to be used in pies, tarts and cookies or any other way you can dream up. A friend of ours who tried this recipe served the mincemeat over vanilla ice cream. Her husband's response: "If anyone had ever told me I'd put green tomatoes over ice cream and love it, I'd have told them they were crazy!" As a matter of fact, mji- cemeat has been served over vanilla ice cream for years, and the combination is great. If you're interested to try this, heat the mincemeat and, if it doesn't already have a goodly portion of rum, brandy or some other spirit added, give it this beneficial blessing. Just one warning: don't use mincemeat this way if it has suet in it — this green tomato version doesn't. Eating suet-style mincemeat over ice cream is more than anyone should be expected to stomach. GREEN TOMATO MINCEMEAT 3 pounds green tomatoes, thinly sliced (about 2 quarts sliced) v 4 cup salt 2 large apples, cored and chopped but unpeeled 1 large orange, seeded and chopped but unpeeled 15-ounce package seedless raisins, about 2Vi cups 1 cup sugar 1 pint dark corn syrup 2 tablespoons pumpkin-pie spies Sprinkle tomatoes with salt as you layer them in a bowl; cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Chop fine. Into a 4-quart saucepot turn the tomatoes, apple, orange, raisins, sugar, corn syrup and spice Cover and simmer 45 PTA holds open home at school Mrs. Charles Sharpe Jr. photo with Star camera AT BERYL HENRY Open House Tuesday night, assisting in serving refreshments were Mrs. Jack Caldwell, Mrs. Vonnie Edwards and Mrs. Jim Tate.

It was voted to have a mulligan stew supper at the October meeting at the Douglas building. "Pat" Patton will make the stew from meat provided by a few of the "hunting" members.
