He touched briefly on his recent tour of the Holy Land. Immediately after the morning service, Rev. Partridge left for Joliet, where he will preach and conduct a week of book study. PEAR ABBY: Is there anything wrong with a man wanting his wife to get all dolled up just for his benefit once in a while? I don't mean every right, but maybe once a week she could get her hair done, make up her face and put on somethig sexy, enticing and just a bit revealing for her man I don't expect my wife to put on a 30- minute strip tease, but what's wrong with giving the old man the "come on" when they're alone in private? She knows I've never been unfaithful. I'm sober, hardworking, and I give her unrestricted use of the checkbpok. We're both in our mid- thirties, have three nice children, and she doesn't work outside the home. Am I wrong? She thinks I'm crazy. Sign me. . . CASEY DEAR CASEY: Your wife is "trazy" if she doesn't jump at the chance to put a little zip into your marriage. There's no excuse for a wife striking out when her man pitches 'em right ever the plate. DEAR ABBY: I didn't appreciate that letter from ELAINE lambasting people who send annual newsletters to their friends at Christmas time. As you have probably guessed, I write an annual newsletter and must say that I, for one, look forward each year to receiving them from old friends we seldom see but who are often in our thoughts. I would rather get a mimeo- p^uphed newsletter at Christmas than a card with the senders name printed at the bot- trrn. May I defend the newsletter set and lambaste the card senders whose cards are about as personal as the "occupant" throw-aways we are always re­ ceiving . My retort would go something like this: "Dear Friend, Your Christmas card was received so we know you still have our address. "It must have come out of I he $2.50 box at least. Or are you one of those smart shoppers who waits until after Christ mns to buy them at half price? "Your message was really original. 'Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!" I bet you j eally had to burn the midnight oil to come up with something so creative. Glad your name was printed on the bottom. Never could remember how to spell your name. And O, yes, one more thing. My memory isn't as good as it used to be. Who are you anyway?" Sincerely, MARGY DEAR ABBY: guess what? You saved my life. I am stationed at a base four miles from Cambodia. This morning at 0830 we received incoming 32MM mortar 40-50 to be exact. I was sitting hear reading the Stars and Stripes, turned the page and elected to read DEAR ABBY. I got so interested in it I put off Mother Nature for a fef minutes. Lucky for me. It turned out that the latrine was the center of Charlie Cong's vengeance. So Decause of your article I am stul here. Thank you! "STILL HERE" DEAR STILL: Thanks for writing. You made my day. Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply write to Abby, Box 6970, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069, and enclose a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

I hope someone can tell me how to restore it and remove the dent or at least make the creases less noticeable. Mrs. W.A.D. DEAR POLLY — I am answering Mrs. H.C.M. in regard to the care of her flagstone floor in a breezeway. We have such a floor on our porch and each spring my husband washes it thoroughly and then applies ValOil. It leaves a pretty shin and lasts all summer. —ALMA DEAR READERS — We try to mention any hrand names. As far as we could tletermine, there was no other way to describe this "paint." It is recommended by so many who also found it impervious to moisture. I also learned that there is another preparation, obt a i nable from stone dealers, that highlights colors with no shine or gloss and makes regular cleaning far easier. —POLLY DEAR POLLY — I never gave left- handed oven mitts a thought until I saw my daughter put a right- handed one on her left hand. When asked why she did this, she said she always holds a dish or pan with her left hand while she stirs or bastes with her right one. Doesn't everyone? The trouble is the padding of a right handed mitt will be on the back of the left hand. Are left- handed mitts available. If not, I think I will make some. —DONIA DEAR POLLY — In answer to Mabel's inquiry concerning the cleaning of her plastic - cov ered kitchen chairs: I want to tell her that I have used ligh ter fluid. —JOCELYN MISS RUTH ANN JEFrERS Mrs. Thelma Thompson of Ashley is announcing the engagement of her daughter, Ruth Ann, to Danny E.

CASE FOR LIGHT LIPSTICKS Match your lipstick and nail polish to the color of clothes you wear. (Pink make-up does not go with orange accessories,, for instance). And for this season, try to keep those shades as light as possible, yet brighf and vibrant TIZZY by Kate Osann "A photo album is a lot of fun if you don't mind what you used to look likel", The title of this should read "The Deadhead and the Lime Tree". . . which is what it is all about. There was so much good laughter after my "chasing the train two blocks story" (there were many many other unusual happenings in my 12 years "riding a pass" between Illinois and Alabama) — decided to relate the most, or one of the most outlandish. For some time I had decided to bring a small lime tree and two azalea bushes back to Illinois — to see if they could survive. I picked a poor time to bring them — but how was I to know. They were dug, roots wrapped in tow sacks, tied in paper bags. Of course, I had my usual pillow, travel case, suit case, and purse. When I boarded, the conductor said, "What in the world do you have there" I explained, and he was dubious, but let me on with them. If I explained once, I did 20 times, during the trip to Nashville, Tennessee, "what they were, where I got them, and where was I taking them." -o- -c— -o- In the meantime it had begun to rain — hard. When we got off in Nashville, escalated up to the station, imagine our horror — no trains out for hours a wildcat strike on the road we could wait and see. Some left by bus — some by plane • a few poor souls stranded • which included yours truly. I doubt if there was a single individual in the station who failed to ask about my lime tree — by this time, coming unravelled, leaving small blobs of dirt here and there. Time passed, and a train was made up to get the few of us to Evansville — but that was it. Ordinarily we would have been in Evansville the next morning, early. It was nearly noon when we splashed in, through a downpour. I was sort of dragging my poor bedraggled bushes and tree — all packing gone — few small hunks of dirt left clinging to roots. But a decision had been reached — I would bring them the rest of the way — or else. As soon as we reached the station (and I explained to 15 more people what I had) it was learned no trains. The man sweeping the station, one ticket agent, and me and my lime tree were all that, was left. No bus. . . no plane. ... no train . . . -o- -o- -o- I called Mary Krause, and told her of my predicament, She said, "I've got the flu — if your aren't afraid of taking it, I'll be right down." In no time at all, she was there gave her number to the agent, just in case a stray train wandered in, en route to St. Louis One bowl of soup later, a call came — they were making up a train — get back to the station. Thoroughly exhausted, soaked to the hide, Mary rushed me back to the station. The voice on. the loudspeaker was most welcome: "Passengers for St, Louis board at Gate 2." Gathering my shrubs, I slithered to Gate 2, and there she was, huffing and puffing — a steam engine, one baggage coach and one passenger coach of ancient vintage. I was the one and only passenger, -o- -o- -o- Sitting bolt upright on the red straight- backed seat, holding my lime tree and my azaleas glassy-eyed with fatigue , I was on the last lap of my journey. As we came jerking into town it was about four in the afternoon — and Mr. Mendenhall, taxi man for many years, was at the station. As I staggered over to the taxi he said, "I might have known you'd be on that train — What happened — and what in the world is that bunch of weeds you've got there." I merely groaned and said, "It's a lime tree' and "Take me home." * * * P.S. The lime tree and the azaleas were planted, and thrived here.- I didn't do so good. The flu bug had a fine specimen to work on — and did McLEANSBORO Larry Sadler and Jim Talkington of Oklahoma City, Okla. returned to Southeastern College at Durant, Okla., after spending the holidays with Mr. and Mrs. Cleo Sadler and David, here.
