Three yodels for the Swiss By Abigail Van Buren S) 1974 by The Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: I understand that a few years back, you had a letter in your column from someone who asked why the Swiss were such an arrogant people. The writer stated that a Swiss will let you know five minutes after you meet him that he is not German, French or Italian—but SWISS. My ancestors came from Berne, Switzerland. Therefore, I am interested in the way you answered that. WISCONSINITE DEAR WIS: First, the Swiss are not "arrogant." They are a proud people who have much about which to be proud. They have fresh air and clean government. (Their president serves for one year only, and cannot be re-elected.) They produce the world's finest chocolate, cheeses, watches and precision instruments. Their people are honest, industrious and well-mannered. Their skiing is unbeatable and their banks unbreakable. And if that's not something to yodel about, I don't know what is! DEAR ABBY: I am a 53-year-old widower. I have a nice home, a responsible position, good health and an adequate income. Some time ago, I met an attractive widow and we've been . seeing a lot of each other.., She's pretty,* has a good-figure • .. and is'a fine cook and housekeeper. We have the same tastes in music, the theatre, sports and literature. We couldn't be better matched had we been selected for each other by computer. We want to get married, but we have a problem. I have a dog who has been my constant companion for eight years. Never having had children, King was a great comfort to us during my wife's terminal illness. He was like a member of my family. Unfortunately the lady has a dog and cat to whom she is equally attached. We've tried to bring these animals together without success. Both dogs are big and they fight to the point of trying to kill each other. If I bring King to the lady's apartment, he intimidates her cat, and she snarls and hisses and runs up the curtain. We've discussed our problem with our friends and they're no help. Frankly, they think we're nuts. Is there a solution that will work? WANTS TO MARRY DEAR WANTS: The widow has the advantage, two pets to one. Why not find a good home for King? Or flip a coin to see which dog goes. If King "wins," the cat remains a problem—unless the two can adjust. (If you two "perfectly-matched" humans can't overcome the animal barrier between you, you are indeed "nuts,") DEAR ABBY: A Florida wife gripes because the bug spray her husband uses on their property makes him passionate. This is a problem? Is it possible to find out what brand of bug spray her husband uses? And if the brand name isn't available, could you please ask her to send her husband? COULD USE HIM IN OMAHA Everyone 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.

Corn Pudding Is Truly American By AILEEN CLAIRE NEA Food Editor Corn pudding or corn custard recipes are found in cookbook collections from early settlers' menus. This is a truly American dish that is easy to make and is best when kernels cut from fresh corn are used.

Men and Scents A recent survey conducted by fashion experts turns up the fact that men still love to be with women who wear perfume.

When it looked dirty we unthinkingly hosed it off and water seeped through the seams. 4fter, a, few days the chair developed a-musty odor and no'amount of airing and sun-, ning does away with this smell. I would like to know if anyone else has had this happen and if they were able to correct it successfully. How? We hate not being able to use this good chair. — LYNN. DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve concerns road signs. While on a recent trip our family was quite annoyed to see signs saying "Lodgings, restaurant ahead — 5 miles," then get there and find they were no longer in business and perhaps have to drive at least 10 miles more to find something. It seems there should be a law requiring the removal of signs for non-existent places. Also many signs say "Motel — 5 miles" and then closer to the same motel is another sign saying seven miles. The closer one gets the further the distance given on the signs. — MRS.S. DEAR POLLY — and Mrs.H.S. who has a^new Dutch oven that gives a metallic taste to any food cooked in it — My solution to this problem is to put potato peels, celery tops or other parts of vegetables not being used, meat bones or whatever and even salt, pepper and shortening in the pot, put water over them to cover well, put top on and cook this for an hour or more, the longer the Better. Just be sure to check on the water so there is plenty at all times. This food should absorb the odor. If it does not do the trick I think she has gotten a bum cooker that will always have that taste. This is from my own experience. — OVAH. DEAR POLLY - I wonder if Mrs.H.S. seasoned her Dutch oven. Tiie directions that came with mine say that when rust or black sticks to your dish towel it is time to do it again. Thoroughly scour the inside with steel wool or a metal scouring pad and then wash with soap and water and dry thoroughly. Coat the inside with unseasoned fat and place in a moderate (300 degree) oven for two hours, remove and wipe out excess fat with a paper towel and it should be good as new. - MRS.R.N. DEAR POLLY - If you have trouble getting paint off the windows after the house is painted try the following. With a cloth or your fingertips spread dishwashing liquid around the edges of the window panes for about an inch. Let dry and then paint the frames, when paint is completely dry wash the dishwashing liquid away with water and the spattered- on paint is washed away, too. - EVELYN. September 20 Mr,. and .Mrs..

Don't over-restore furniture A fine piece of old furniture can be ruined by over- restoration. Do not be guilty of trying to make old or antique furniture look new. Part of the charm of old furniture is knowing that the signs of wear came naturally through the years with use. Excessive refinishing can destory this charm, as well as lower the commercial value of old furniture. Examine each piece of furniture to determine how far to go with the cleaning and restoration process. If possible, the original finish of a valuable piece of furniture should net be removed. A mellowed, aged patina is more appropriate for some pieces of furniture. Many old pieces of furniture need only tc be cleaned and polished, says Wanda Williams, county Extension agent - home economics. One effective furniture cleaner can be made by mixing three-fourths part boiled linseed oil with one- fourth part gum turpentine. Shake the mixture well before using. Pour boiling water into a container and then pour the boiled linseed oil and turpentine mixture onto the surface of the water. Dip a cloth into the oily surface layer. Apply the solution to a small area of the furniture at a time. Keep excessive moisture away from joints to prevent the glue from softening. On some extremely dirty surfaces, it will be necessary to dip fine steel wool into the solution and rub lightly with the grain to remove the soil. Wipe the surface with a dry cloth. Do not reheat this mixture—it is flammable and will become gummy. Some experts dislike the use of water on furniture of any kind. The secret of using water in a furniture cleaner is to work on only a small section of the furniture at a time and to work with as little water as possible. Also, it is necessary to wipe the surface dry with a clean cloth. Consult an expert refinisher before attempting to restore a valuable antique or a collector's item. Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q. — We're getting new window screens soon. How do I keep the mesh from getting rusty? A. — These days, most new screens come in rust-proof materials.
