Sf AR residents attend -Mary Nell Turner photo with Star camera CONDUCTOR Klipstatter and Mrs. Booles greet each other in German and reminisce about the "Old Vienna." —Ellen Neaville photo with Star camera CONDUCTOR Klipstatter shared the Symphonyfest activities with Hope guests, Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Booles. Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG 1 AP Newsfeatures Q. — About a year ago, I put up plywood panels in our attic. I was told to leave an eighth of an inch between the panels to allow for expansion. I did that, but now don't like the appearance of the seams. Can I fill them with wood putty? A. — You can, but they won t look much better than the open seams. And the chances are that the putty will not hold when expansion and contraction get in their work. The easiest solution now is to cover the seams with thin strips of decorative molding. Q. — I recently took the finish off a knick-knack shelf with varnish remover. It didn't take off all the old stain, but I went ahead and covered it with white enamel. It looked fine, but after a couple of days, the stain started to come through the white. I then put on a second coat and it covered well, but again the stain has come through. What can I do about this? A. — The initial mistake was in not trying to get off more of the original stain. The second was in not applying some kind of sealer to keep the stain from coming through. There are various ways to tackle the problem now. One is to cover the white with a coat of aluminum paint, generously applied. After it has dried thoroughly, go ahead with the white enam- el. The aluminum paint should serve as a sealer against reappearance of the stain. Q. — I want to put a vent over the kitchen stove. Can it be vented into the attic? There are two large louvers at the ends of the attic. A. — Don't try it unless you want to take the moisture problem out of the kitchen and put it in the attic. Ducts should be used to take the moisture directly out of the house. If that is impractical, install an exhaust fan in the kitchen. You probably know that basil is a great seasoning for tomato dishes, but it is also excellent used with green peas and snap beans.

Pregnant daughter refuses to wed By Abigail Van Buren ,:<vy>< •/ • ui." • 1974 byTtit Chicago trlburt* : "" ' : DEAR AHBY: My daughter graduated from college. With honors, yet, but listen to what this dumbbell did. She moved in with her boyfriend with the understanding that if they both decided they were right for each other they would get married. Now she thinks she's pregnant, but she has not told her boyfriend because she wants him to marry her for HKRSKLF — not because there is a baby on the way. Have you over heard of such stupidity from a college graduate? Thank God we don't live in the same city because I keep thinking of things I'd like to say .to her and it's getting harder and harder to keep my mouth shut. [ wish I could talk some sense into that girl's head. She never misses your column. Maybe you can. TEARING MY HAIR DEAR TEARING: Your daughter hasn't asked roc for any advice, so I'm not about to give her any. But I have some for you. Quit tearing your hair over a grown daughter of legal age who is determined to live her life the way she wants to. It's her privilege. Right or wrong. DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of two children under five. 1 was married, but it didn't work out. For a year now I have been going with a very nice and lovable older man. My only had break is that he is married and living with his wife. He says he loves me very much and one day will marry me, but right now he feels sorry for his wife and he can't talk divorce to her or she will crack up. (She's not very strong. They have five kids.) He tells his wife he's working late and comes over here for supper nearly every night. My kids call him "Daddy," but they're confused because when they go to bed at night their 'Daddy" is here, but he's never here when they wake up in the morning. I have no one to talk to about this. My mother would never understand. Please advise me. IN LOVE DEAR IN: I think you're wasting your time. Get smart and say goodbye to this part-time "Daddy." Look for an unattached man your kids can say "Good night" and "Good morning" to. DEAR ABBY: I am writing this in utter disgust for the way guys are starting to dress now. It makes me sick to my stomach to see men walk around in platform shoes and midriff blouses with their navels showing! What on earth would make a man want to dress that way? Are people so taken in by the weirdo fashion designers that they will buy anything as long as it's new and considered "in"? I don't mind a little imagination in men's wear, but some of these flowered shirts and feminine looking duds are ridiculous. Men don't look like men anymore. Now that I got this off my chest, I feel better. FEMALE DEAR FEMALE: Not ALL men arc buying the above-described attire. And as for your complaint about men not looking like men, could it because some WOMEN look like men? CONFIDENTIAL TO "LU WITH A LULU OF A PROBLEM": Yes, for every problem there IS a solution—even if it's only learning to live with it. When you pick a lemon, make lemonade. 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.
