It read, "I am only interested in being stoned, spending money and sex. I read no further. .... My first impulse was to confront him with this, but then he would say I had no right to go snooping through his desk. . . , . T u I don't think I should go on ignoring this. I would appreciate some advice. He is FATHER DEAR FATHER: You could be about 17 years top late. It won't help you now to be reminded that you failed to build the kind of father-son relationship that inspires trust, confidence and total honesty. It's possible that what you read old not reflect your son's thoughts accurately, how c v cr * Don't tell him what you saw, but try to get a dialogue going so you can get inside bis head. Encourage honesty, and no matter what he says, be cool, and don't put him down or make him feel guilty. If you can develop candid two-way communication, you'll be able to influence and eventually help your son. He doesn f need punishment, Father, he needs a mature understanding friend. DEAR ABBY: About a week before our daughter and her steady graduated from high school, they told us that she was pregnant and they wanted to get mamed. There was a long silence, then my husband said: We ve all made mistakes in our lives, but some of us never got caught. Now you two kids will have to excuse us for five minutes while we plan our daughter's wedding. Then Dad led me into the bedroom, handed me $25 and said: "Let's see if you're as smart about money now as you were 25 years ago." Needless to say, time was short, so I went downtown the next morning and bought six yards of yellow cotton, two simple formal patterns, two yards of pink lace, two yards of ivory lace, and some pink and ivory ribbon—all for less than $10. (I had $15 left over for the flowers and reception. Boy, I had money to burn!) My younger daughter (age 15) and I made the dresses. I baked the wedding cake and made punch. Only the very immediate families were invited to the wedding. Our minister performed the ceremony in front of our fireplace, which was decorated with greenery from our garden and two white candles. The girls were beautiful in their simple dresses with their long black hair tied hack with ribbons to match their dresses. The bride carried a single ivory carnation, and her sister, a pink carnation. We made sure the fridge was well stocked, and Dad, Sister and I spent the weekend in a neighboring town with Dad's brother. Dad says I'm still as smart about money as I was 25 years ago NO NAMES PLEASE DEAR NO: You're not only smart about money, you are wise about other things, too. And so is your husband.

POLLY'S POINTERS Elbow grease fails to clean off stairs By Polly Cramer Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY — When I removed the rubber-backed carpet from my back stairs I found the backing had stuck to the steps. I tried scraping and scrubbing but neither worked. I hope some reader has suggestions as to how I might remove this. — K.J.C. DEAR POLLY — Do tell Carla the way I get a cork out of a bottle is to use a twine string with several knots made on one end, one on top of the other, until the knot is of a good size. Lower the string inside the bottle with knots at the bottom, turn bottle upside down so the cork will fall into the neck of the bottle and the knot will be behind the cork, Pull. Presto, the cork will come out. - FLORENCE. DEAR POLLY - I am a school teacher who has discovered chalk is good for more than its intended use. I find it is often most effective for covering soil and blemishes in wallpaper. It comes in so many shades that one is bound to blend with the paper. I find I use cream colored the most and just gently rub it in with a clean fingertip. - ELIZABETH. DEAR POLLY - When wrapping food for the freezer 1 use masking tape and write on it the items enclosed and the date. Often such writing became so blurred I could not read it. Now I put a strip of clear cellophane tape over the writing to protect it as it is most important to keep food moving according to dates. — ANNE. DEAR POLLY - My husband sleeps during the day so dark shades or curtains were needed in the room where he sleeps but I could not find any to fit the windows. I decided to use black bath towels. One side was hemmed to slip on the curtain rod and I soon had good practical and reasonably priced shades that are easy to keep clean. They can be washed and are ready to hang again in no time at all. LUPITA. You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite home-making idea. Pet Peeve. Polly's Problem or solution to a problem.

Your own teeth are better. Dentists generally recommend periosurgery, crowns and bridges, wherever possible, before dentures. Researchers at Ohio State University have found that dogs are very effective in helping severely withdrawn mental patients. Seems a tail-wagging, hand-licking friend provides the non- critical acceptance the patients need. Everyone complains about hospital food — and now a nutritlonlst-MD in Atlanta says that bospitals are ignoring nutritional needs, even vitamins, for the patients. He called it malnutrition. Effective as fluoridation is in preventing tooth decay, too much fluoride can mottle the teeth. In Texas, one town with natural fluoridation has found a method to "defluoridate" the water down to the recommended level. Basic tooth care starts with regular brushing, plus flossing and gum massage. You'll find all the dental- care products you need at Deanna Drug.
