DEAR ABBY: I am a male, 29 years old; T served irr the Air Force for three years. I worked with security police. I didn't like it, so I told my commander I wanted to change jobs, but he kept putting things off, so I went to the chaplain and told him I was gay and wanted out. I was sent to a psychiatrist. He believed me and got me a lawyer and I got out with an honorable discharge. I've been out for nearly four years. The Army recruiting office called me and asked me if I wanted to join the Army and get into nurse's training. (He said he knew by my record that I had worked in a hospital, which is true.) Naturally, I didn't give him any details about how I got discharged. I am bored and would like to get back into the Army, but I don't want to be embarrassed. What are my chances for getting in? NO NAME OR LOCATION PLEASE DEAR NO: Forget 'the Army. A caper like yours cost the Air Force time and money. And who knows, you might have another dodge up your sleeve. DEAR ABBY: I recently hired a woman to work from 8 to 4 five da^s a week. I pay her a top salary by the hour to do the laundry and general housework. Fanny (not her real name) arrives at 8:00 and immediately starts to prepare herself a four-course breakfast, which usually consists of fresh fruit, hot cereal, pancakes or French toast, bacon and eggs, biscuits and four cups of coffee. I provide all the food, and have never placed any restrictions on what she may have. After breakfast, Fanny takes a bath and changes into her uniform. By then it's 9:00. She works until 12 noon, and then prepares herself an ample lunch which she eats while reading a foreign newspaper. This takes her one full hour. At 1:00 Fanny resumes her work. Promptly at 3:00, she quits, takes another bath and changes into her street clothes. She leaves at 4:00. Fanny is a good worker. She's honest, clean and dependable. But since she is being paid to work by the hour, I think a lunch break is all she's entitled to, and that she should bathe and breakfast on her own time. She lives less than a 30-minute drive from here. If you agree with me, please tell me how to tell her. FANNY'S MISSUS DEAR MISSUS: Tell her in English, unless you can talk better in her language. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 12 years and have three children, 5, 9, and 10. Pat makes a very good living selling. He's been with the same company ever since we've been married and has .turned down many promotions because he didn't want to travel out of this state. Now he has been offered what his boss calls "the opportunity of a lifetime" —but it would mean being away from home for two weeks out of every month. He turned it down. His boss is cool to him, and thinks he's crazy. His parents are barely speaking to us because they think he made a big mistake, but he and I still think he made the right choice. Abby, we like money as much as the next person, but we feel that during these years, when our children are growing up, they need a fulltime father, and to us that is more important than anything else. Are we out of our minds? JANE AND PAT DEAR JANE: Not in my book. I think you're beautiful. 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. For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212. Cabbage with a college education What is cabbage with a college education? That's how Mark Twain described cauliflower and it is a member of the cabbage family. The head of a cauliflower is really a cluster of small "flowers" and flower stems. Now is the time to buy cauliflower. Although it is available all year, this vegetable is most abundant from September through January. It is usually sold with most of the jacket leaves (the heavy outer leaf covering) removed. When shopping for cauliflower, look for white to creamy into boiling water or steamed. If a whole head, with the jacket leaves removed, is cooked, allow 25 minutes cooking time. Cook just until tender. About 10 to 15 minutes cooking tune should be sufficient when the flowerets are separated before cooking. Hospital Notes GENERAL By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) "You have to say 'no' to the no," says Joseph Rosen, superintendent of District 10 of the ChiCago Public School system. "No!" is the typical administrator's response to a request for extra services of anything out of thfc norm. After refusing to accept the "no," Rosen's next step was to bend the rules, wheedle, cajole, argue and perhaps even stretch the truth In order to get extra services for his school, located on the city's west side, an area comparable to the worst of Harlem or Watts.. Those "extra services" Rosen wanted were food for his hungry students and eye examinations for those who couldn't see the blackboard* "' But despite all of Rosen's efforts, the educational levels of his students were as disastrous as the environment in which they lived. The reading levels remained wretched; students could and did remain in classrooms for 8, 10, 12 years with- i out learning to read even functionally. ^ Then, three years ago, Rosen became aware of an expert- T mental reading project, studied the results and became a , true believer. J The program, Distar Instructional System, marketed by 1 Science Research Associates, confirmed Rosen's long-held 5 belief that many teachers don't know how to teach reading \ and, therefore, should be guided every step of the way. When teachers objected to the new reading program, Rosen said "no" to their no, and told them to teach in other schools. Rosen countered teacher complaints that the program stifled their "creativity" by noting that "creativity" is less important than teaching a student to read well. After Rosen instituted the Distar program, the reading levels shot up, equalling and even bettering city-wide levels; students in the Distar program scored higher than the national standard in I.Q. tests. The Distar program has its controversial aspects: many educational philosophers and psychologists dislike behavior modification techniques, such as immediately rewarding children for correct responses with a handshake or a raisin. Some teachers object because the program demands they follow the step-by-step instructions without the slightest deviation. Ana economically beleaguered school boards, with good, reason, might question the high cost of the program. But those objections seem to pale when the parents in Dis' trict 10, their voices filled with pride, talk about how well . their children read, how their children insist on going to school - even when they're ill. And the children, eager and alert, say they Would go to school on Saturdays if they could. For them, the Distar program is a one-way, express ticket out of the ghetto. Joseph Rosen refused- to believe that his students couldn't learn to read. Without that creative no-saying, even the best reading programs never get to the students who need them the most. Calendar of events Thursday, October 17 A short P.T.A. business meeting will be held at Spring Hill School 7:30 p.m., Thursday, October 17 followed by Open House. Parents are invited to visit the classrooms and talk with the fear-here, heads; According McBride, County Extension Agent-Home Economics Leader, a slightly granular or "ricy " texture will not hurt the eating •quality if the surface is compact. If jacket leaves are attached, make sure they have a good, green color—a sign of freshness. Avoid cauliflower that has a spreading of the head. Also, smudgy or speckled appearance can be a sign of insect injury, mold growth, or decay, and jhould be avoided. Cauliflower should be cooked the shortest time possible, in a covered container to save the vitamins. It should be dropped BRANCH HOSPITAL ADMITTED: Carl Lewis, Ross ton.

Now every one of the grandchildren wants a certain type of crocheted hat that is made with cutouts from beer can labels. I saw one that was handmade and sold for $5 so my three neighbors and I all want to make some and hope some reader can tell us how. The one I saw was red wool in a sort of stovepipe shape with a little rolled-up brim. — MRS.H.H.H.

Serves 8. *Preferred variety: Washington Red Delicious DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with long necklaces with fasteners that will not stay in the back but are constantly shifting to the side or front. We could all be saved some money if fasteners on LONG necklaces were eliminated. - MARIE. DEAR POLLY — My advice for Gerrie who wants to wash the zippered covers on her couch pillows is "NO." Vacuum good and use a sudsy upholstery cleaner, let dry and re- vacuum With covers still on the pillows. Be careful not to let the suds go through to the actual pillows. The zippers are not in the pillows to make them easy to remove for cleaning but for the upholsterer to close without hand stitching. If necessary to re-shape a pillow after it is clean lay a dampened towel on it and iron and find the steam will perform miracles. 1 have seen many pillow covers that people have taken off to have dry cleaned and then could not be put on again because of shrinkage. — AUDREY. DEAR POLLY - I have diabetes. Before seasoning fresh vegetables for the rest of the family I remove my serving and put it in a three-cup egg poacher to keep my vegetable warm until we are ready to eat. I like to use all new potatoes even the very small ones and have discovered a vegetable brush is great for getting the thin skin off these small newly-dug potatoes. I used to dread preparing them when I scraped with a knife. — EMMA. DEAR POLLY — I have one notebook in which I keep our very important numbers like driver's license numbers, Social Security numbers and others that one might want quickly or in an emergency. My husband was robbed and his wallet stolen along with his Social Security card and driver's license. By having these numbers right at hand it was quite easy to replace the cards. — MRS.N.K. DEAR READERS - It also is well to keep a list of charge cards and their numbers. — POLLY. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.i UNTAMED AND DEADLY, she ruled the swamp mtti a BLAZING GUN and a LUSCIOUS SMILE.
