My problem is that he has gotten the same girl pregnant three times. The first time it Happened Roy didn't know me. The girl was in high school then, arid she lost the baby, so Roy got off lucky. the second time Roy was home from the Army on an emergency furlough. (His father had died and he came home for the funeral. Roy said he went to see this girl and she wanted to take his mind off his sorrow.) She had the baby, which Roy still supports. Right after Roy gave me a ring, this girl turns up pregnant again. She claims it's Roy's. I think she was just trying to hook him. He tried to talk her into an abortion but she refused. She says abortion is murder, it's against her , conscience, and besides it's a sin. She is having the baby in November and I had planned to , get married in December. Roy says if I will forgive him and marry'him anyway, he" will never look at another girl as long as he lives. Would you marry him? IN LOVE WITH ROY DEAR IN: No. He's accident prone, doesn't learn from experience, and seems to have a serious weakness he hasn't learned how to control. DEAR ABBY: You referred to alimony as "the high cost of leaving." That may be true, but I still think paying alimony is like buying oats for a dead horse. STILL BUYING DEAR STILL: Ex-wives are not dead horses. They are two-legged oat-burners and very much alive and kicking. Though the cost of LEAVING may have seemed high at the time, the cost of LIVING has been climbing steadily, so before a man decides to leave his wife, he'd be wise to check the tost of oats, which these days ain't hay. DEAR ABBY: I read;the letter from that husband who complained because his wife of 35 years was a "backseat driver." He said she made him so nervous he didn't think he could tolerate a mbtbr trip with her beside him as ft co'pilot. That lady reminded me of myself. For the duration of my marriage (52 years) 1, too, was a backseat driver. I know it irked my good husband, but he seemed to understand. One day he drove to a nearby shopping area and I wasn't in the car beside him to say: "Look out for that crazy woman coming toward us on the wrong side of the roadl" This is the end of my story. She killed him. MRS. J.M.P.: FAIRVIEW PARK, O. CONFIDENTIAL TO "MONEY TALKS" IN TULSA: Yes, it talks, but it doesn't always give us the right answers. Here's what a brilliant man had to say about the subject: "What availeth it. if we become so engrossed in the pursuit of business or of money for its own sake, after we've earned a competency, if this pursuit unfits us for the enjoyment of the real, deep, satisfying things of life, if it blinds our eyes, warps our souls and numbs our better senses and sensibilities? "The be-all and end-all of life should not be simply to get rich, but to enrich the world." -B.C. FORBES Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

POLLY'S POINTERS Exercise sandals need spiffing up By Polly Cramer 's Problem Polly DEAR POLLY — How can I clean my wooden "exercise" sandals? They are very soiled and discolored. — JANE. DEAR POLLY — In discussing my Pet Peeve with others I find most feel the same as I do about having to buy things in sets, especially cookware. One company sells cast iron, another cast aluminum and another copper-bottomed stainless steel but too often in sets only. Sometimes we like to buy one piece as a gift but cannot. There are many other items sold the same way that are passed by when often the customer ,wpuldvlMiy Qne*n,^edBdlar.ti<e4e,<^s MRS-J^B.-. '•'—DEAR POKEY - I am atisWrTng'BeHna~whose husband is allergic to wool pants worn against his skin. An extension agent once told us to line all men's and women's wool slacks but this is guite a job to do. I bought women's nylon pants liners and like them and do not see why men's nylon knit pajama pants could not be worn under wool pants as liners. It seems to me they would be great to keep the wool away from the skin. - MARGARET. DEAR POLLY — We were having trouble with rusted nail heads bleeding through the fresh paint on our newly purchased wood frame house. A carpenter friend suggested that we first spot paint the nail heads with aluminum paint and then repaint with the outside paint. We have no more of this bleeding and thought this Pointer might help someone else with the same problem. — MRS.H.W. DEAR POLLY — It always annoys me to see a dress that buttons in the front gaping between the buttons. Now I put a zipper on the inside so it cannot be seen. I find the dresses look so much better. I start the zipper low in the front and have it extend below the abdomen. Stick zipper to the bottom side of the dress and then button. Baste zipper to be sure it is in and stays in the right place and then stitch. The stitching will show but when matching thread is used this looks better than the gaping, I think. - JOE. DEAR GIRLS — I agree with Joe about the gaping fronts of many dresses. Several years ago I noticed that between the buttons on the front of a very expensive blouse there were dress snaps, along the line of the buttons, and have added these to many of my dresses and blouses. I found it well worth the slight trouble. The garments look so much better. - POLLY.

Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q. — I intend to cover our backyard patio with fiber glass roofing. Can you tell me what size wood to use for the rafters of the framework? A. — Generally, 2 by 6 rafters, with a 2 by 8 rafter support at the lower front where the 4 by 4 posts are located. But you would be unwise to buy any material until you find out what the local codes are for that type of construction. The codes will even specify how the wood is to be attached. If you take a chance and build the roof without investigating, you might have to take it down at a later date. Q. — I'd like to use textured paint on one wall of my den. Someone has told me it's not a good idea because the wall can never be made smooth again. Can't it be sanded smooth if I want to change it in a few years? A. — The advice you received was good. The wall might be made smooth again with an electric sander, but it would be a long, tough job and you'd probably regret you ever started it. Most persons who use textured paint are satisfied with the result. Q. — Can I apply plywood directly over a plaster wall? A. — Yes, but the wall must be level to get a good result. If it is not level, you will have to put up furring strips first. In the first instance, the plywood is nailed into the studs behind the plaster. In the second, the furring is nailed to the studs, and the plywood nailed or glued to the furring strips. Q. — Should varnish be heated before beirtg used? A. — It isn't necessary, but warming it helps it to flow easier. This should be done by placing the can in a pot of warm water. Don't warm It over an open flame.
