My scar is nice and neat, not repulsive or ugly. My husband is the type who goes around our property cutting down all the trees that are imperfectly formed. We are in our early forties. Please print your answer. He may profit by it. "CUTDOWN" DEAR "CUTDOWN": You are not a tree, and there is no reason to regard as "imperfect" a woman who bears a scar. Your husband has a far more serious "imperfection." His doesn't show, but it may require a professional to get to the root of it. DEAR ABBY: If anybody writes in and asks you if she should marry a widower who was married to the same woman for 40 years, tell Her not to. "I've been married for three months to a man who is won- derul when he's awake, but he keeps calling mc "Myrtle" in his sleep. Maybe he can't help it, ' but I was widowed twice, and I never once called my present husband Alfred or LeRoy in my sleep, and if I can be careful, so can he. NOT MYRTLE DEAR NOT: A 40- year- old habit is not easily broken. Just remember that your husband is'nt responsible for what he calls you in his sleep. (At least you who who Myrtle was.) DEAR ABBY: My father is having an affair with a girl who is not much older than I am. I have • always adored my father, and now I can't even look at him. My mother must\ suspect something because she looks so unhappy and worried lately, but she is proud. I don't believe my father would divorce Mother to marry this woman. She has small children and knowing my father, he's not about to raise a family at his age. ' Maybe, too, the young woman doesn't want an "old" man to take care of, but she is playing him for all he's worth. ; Should I tell my mother? I have the feeling it might help her to talk to someone. Should I go to my father's boss? He's* a person I could talk to, and 'I'm.sure he wouldn't put up with this situation in his office for one minute. What advice can you give me, Abby? HEARTSICK DAUGHTER DEAR HEARTSICK: Don't talk to your mother. And don't talk to your father's boss. He might fire them both, and at his age, your father may not find it easy to get another job). Try to reason with him. He's probably infatuated with this girl and flattered by her attentions. You may not be able to shake him out of the daze, but it's worth a try. . DEAR ABBY: Re. the handling of embarrassing, personal questions: I had an experience along these lines which might interest your readers: One evening at our club, a woman came up to me. and. said, "My, your hair looks pretty." Then she grinned and ad-! ded, ". . . and the people at our table have a bet on about whether you're wearing a wig or not. Are you?" I grinned right back at her and replied, "What a coincidence! The people at OUR table also have a bet on about whether you're wearing falsies or not, but nobody had the nerve to ask you." Needless to say, that took care of her. TOUCHE' Everybody has a problem. What's yours?
