Monday* September :ii), HOPE (AM.) Sf Att Page He's a reconditioned exhibitionist By Abigail Van Buren © 1974 by Th» Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: I read the letter from "Scared," the 19-year-old girl who just found out that her steady boyfriend had been arrested several times for indecent exposure. Thank you for your compassionate and understanding attitude. You said, "It's an illness. He needs therapy." Abby, you are so right. I am a 28-year-old man who was cursed with that illness for about 15 years. It's called "exhibitionism." And it's as difficult to control as alcoholism. In plain language, it's an uncontrollable urge to expose oneself. I was normal in all other respects and couldn t understand this fierce urge I seemed powerless to control. I won't go into the humiliation, problems with the law and tremendous guilt feelings I suffered until I finally found a psychologist who knew how to treat this illness. He used the "conditioning" technique, and it cured me. I have been married for five years to a woman who stood by me through the worst. She gave me the courage to seek professional help, and the strength the stick with the New Kits Are Aid To Creativity P.S. Abby, because I trust you, and know that you will not betray that trust, I am signing my real name and address. If you print my letter, please don't divulge my name or location. Although I am cured, and, God willing, will never regress, I am still ashamed of my past. DEAR EX: Because I feel that an unenlightened society has misunderstood this problem for years I shall print your letter. '"" Perhaps in an effort not to seem self-serving, you failed to mention an important fact: Exhibitionists are usually gentle, non-violent people, and the chances of their attacking anyone are very, very remote. But in fairness to society, exhibitionists cannot be allowed to go about traumatizing children and shocking adults. . Those who sincerely wish to overcome their problem have an excellent chance of being helped, either by psychotherapy or conditioned reflex therapy. I urge those who are still fighting this battle to seek out such help. DEAR ABBY: "Stumped Divorcee" didn't know how to say "no" to a man. (She said, "If I had never been married, I could say I was saving myself for marriage, but a divorcee can't say that.") I have a solution for her: I was a divorcee for ten years, i never said "no" to a man because I didn't want him to think I was a prude. And I never said "yes" because I didn't want him to think I was a tramp. So 1 always said "maybe. It worked like a charm. I had so many proposals I couldn't count.them. • ..,.,;.«..„-«,. 5J I am now married to the greatest guy in the world**,,«, * THE MAYBE GIRL DEAR MAYBE: I can only assume that your "maybe" turned into a "yes." What was the time schedule on that? DEAR ABBY: I am a woman who is very much in love with a man who says he loves me, but I can't seem to hang on to him. He disappears for weeks at a time and I don't know how to locate him. When he is gone I just about go crazy. He is gone now. I went to a spiritual person who does healing, reads palms, and communicates with people who are far away. She says she can help me get my man back for good, but first I have to sign up for a program which costs $50 for the first session, and $10 every two weeks after that. I don't have a lot of money, but I would sure pay that much to get my man back. Should I sign up? LOUISIANA DEAR LA: Save your money and report that "spiritual person" to the Better Business Bureau and the Bunco Division of your local police department. If your man loves you, you won't need a third party to get him back. He'll COME back. •••f * Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212. Zesty gelatin salad great companion juice and salt.

It is estimated that a quarter of the billion dollar hobby market is in craft kits and supplies. Although there are cheese kits and wine kits, at least one wine and cheese kit puts it all together, making a pound of Cheddar cheese and five bottles of wine. Another one for the culinary crowd provides yogurt, cottage cheese, Cheddar cheese and sourdrough starter with all the necessary ingredients. In the homes area, kits are extremely popular. Rug crafter kits are providing a change of pace to needlepointers.

And just in time for the new fall fashions again emphasizing decorative trims, is a kit that provides sparkling trims. The kit contains a sew-on sequin ap- plique with iron-on transfer pattern, sequins and fashionable trims in assorted colors and shapes. ' The ancient art of tablet weaving — believed to have been developed in the Iron Age — is revived in one kit where the tablet is used for loom-like effects. In tablet weaving different colored threads are put through holes in the tablets (cards). The pattern is developed by the direction in which the cards are flipped. The kit's materials include those for a pouch bag in the hourglass pattern. The contents include 30 pre-cut weaving tablets, a shuttle and 17 balls of cotton yarn in various colors.

Cranberry juice and fresh or frozen cranberries add a bittersweet zest to a salad that makes it a good companion to meats, poultry, game and fish.

No longer is he approached only in a crisis situation — to make extractions and fill cavities. Today more patients listen to him advise them on what foods they should eat to improve their general and, thus, dental health. Modern nutrition has become one of his healing tools. , # "Dental carjes - decay of the tooth — is a major threat to young people," according to Dr. A.E. Nizel. "One of the first bits of advice I have for them is to watch their snacks. They are prodigious snackers. But unfortunately most of their snacks are cariogenic - meaning caries producing." He is professor of nutrition and preventive dentistry at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston and a visiting professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology "I suggest, 1 ' he continued, "they add other snacks that are not caries producing, such as peanuts, pretzels, corn chips - a big favorite with lots of people. And. of course, pizza and hamburgers. That's a pretty lively list for an\ teen-ager "These snacks are all sugar-free. Thai is why they are so important in dental health. Sugar is one of the major causes of loolh decay The sugar in candies and soft drinks, cakes and cookie.s turns to acid when it comes in contact with the bacterial plaque of the surfaces of teeth. This acid formation occurs within seconds and lasts 20 or 30 minutes. The exposure of tooth enamel to deminerali/ing acids can be measured by the number of times you snack on sugar- sweetened foodstuffs. When 1 say to a young patient while examining him for dental caries, 'Yoi|r tooth was being eaten away' by acid for an hour and 20 minutes yesterday,' for example, he will listen and decide to try peanuts and pretzel more and chocolate candy and cake less," he observes. Asked if natural sugars such as honey and brown sugar are less likely to produce caries than refined sugar, he replies: "No. Honey and brown sugar and maple syrup are just as caries-producing as refined sugar. Also, dried fruits such as raisins, figs, dates and prunes, which have a high concentration of simple sugars, are also very cariogenic." Recognizing that some sweet snacks are going to be eaten by young patients, he urges that they eat more of the nonsweet type. He adds cheese curls, submarine sandwiches, smoked sausages and popcorn to his original list, most fresh fruits, carrots, celery, tomatoes, crackers and toast. "I don't think our young friends need starve. They just need lo exercise betler selection in their snacking." Also, since sugar meets Ihe baclerial plaque of Ihe teelh and is changed into enamel- deslroying acid, Dr. Nizel recommends lhal his palienls wash Iheir leelh with water before indulging in sweet snacks - a bil difficult for mosl lo do DEAR POLLY - My Pel Peeve is wilh those people who allow their small children to hold up lines at a drive-in bank just so they can take the money tube out, put it back, drop it and take up more.and more time. This may be all right when there is no one in back but very thoughtless when a line of people are idling their car motors waiting. Also, children pushing carts in supermarkets can be a real hazard. How often I have been nearly crippled as a child went by pushing a cart very fast and with no regard for the heels of those trying to do their shopping. - MRS.G.L. DEAR POLLY - I found Mrs.H.O.N.'s letter suggesting that motorcycles not be allowed to take vacant parking spaces but go to undesignated areas rather infuriating. We cyclists must take a driver's test to get a license just the same as the driver of an automobile. We must buy license plates just like carowners and are subject to all rules of the road, fines and penalties just as car drivers. I say we are entitled to a parking space in any parking lot for we would certainly get a ticket it improperly parked. After all the nickel we put in the meter is worth as much as the nickel put in by the driver of a car. — KAREN. DEAR POLLY - To erase a white mark, such as powder, from any black material just rub a small piece of the black fabric over the white or light mark and it will disappear. — MRS.L.R.R. DEAR POLLY - Quilt making again has become so popular that I am embroidering my initials and the date in a corner of each quilt I make. Whenever the quilt becomes an heirloom my grandchildren, etc., will have some sort of record concerning it. My mother had many old quilts that we would love to know more about such as when they were made and by whom. — MRS.W.McA. DEAR GIRLS — Do the same with your needlepoint. — POLLY. You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite home-making idea, Pet Peeve, Polly's Problem or solution to a problem. Write Polly in care of this newspaper. (NEWSPAPER ENTEKPKISE ASSN.)
