Wednesday, Octobei 23, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page Three B&PW woman of year -Hope (Ark.) photo by Roger Head Dee McMurrough In Ted's case, "T" stands for trouble By Abigail Van Buren 1 1974 by The Chicago Tribune' DEAR ABBY: I am getting married next month and was very happy about it until last night, when Ted and I had a 'ong talk. He told me not to expect him to stay faithful to me all our married life because all married men go out on their wives sooner or later and he doesn't think he is going to be any different. . Abby, I love Ted very much, and I don't think I could stand it if I knew he cheated on me. What should I do? IN LOVE DEAR IN: Tell Ted that in this age of the liberated woman, all married women go out on their husbands sooner or later; and since you feel a part of the new sisterhood, the arrangement he proposes is at least negotiable. (In any event, the "T" in Ted stands for trouble.) DEAR ABBY: I was told that years ago, if a man didn't want to be drafted in the U.S. Army, he could PAY someone to substitute for him. I know it sounds like a dumb question, but I can't find the answer anywhere. Can you help me? INQUISITIVE DEAR INK: It is not a "dumb" question. And it WAS true, but no longer is. By the terms of the Conscription Act of 186.1, a man eligible for the draft could avoid service by providing a substitute, or paying a commutation of $300. One-time President Grover Cleveland paid a substitute $150 to serve for him in the Civil War. (Cleveland had two brothers in the U.S. Army and a mother and two sisters to. support at the time.) DEAR ABBY: My father-in-law died six months ago and since his death, my mother-in-law has practically lived with She comes over every night for supper and sits all evening. U's not that she stays so long, but I work, and frankly, I would like to be able to come home and just relax. She has always been very critical of anyone who doesn t keep a spotless house, and although I'm a fairly good housekeeper, I feel she will criticize me. It's gotten to the point where I hate to go home after work because I MOW she will be there. She's a nice person, and I get along* with her, but I need time to be alone. She spends every weekend here, and I can t accomplish anything because she is always looking over my shoulder. She's well enough to go everywhere we go. She went on our vacation with us, and if she wants to go next year, I d just as soon stay home. I hate to be a stinker, and I wouldn t want to shut her out completely, but this is too much. My husband is unfortunately her only "child ana she doesn't get along with the other DEAR SUFF: Your problem is not your mother-in-law, it's the lack of communication with your husband. Your objections seem reasonable enough to me. Have a heart-to-heart talk with hubby, and let him know how you feel. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Cabf. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. Hate to write letters? Send SI to Abigail Van Buren 132 Lasky Dr.. Beverly Hills.

Hempstead County Clerk Dee McMurrough was named Woman of the Year at the Hope BiPW Club's kick-off breakfast in the Town and Country to begin Business Women's Week, October 20-26. The theme of the week, "Blueprint for Women," was carried out in clever decorations of blueprints on the tables where breakfast was served to 28. "Your Priorities in Life" was the subject of an inspiring talk by Wayne Russell, general manager of Corn Belt Hatcheries. He said that women play an important role in all phases of our life today and should stress the best values, avoid prejudice, and strive for logical, achieveable goals. In these respects, men and women have co-equal responsibilities. Pat Harris, chairman of National Business Women's Week, introduced the speaker while standing before a sign that proclaimed "A Woman Must Know Herself Because Her Place is in the World."

HOMES By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q. — The metal flashing around one of the vents on our roof appears to have a gap in it between the bottom of the vent and the roof, which is composed of asphalt shingles. We haven't had any leak in the house, but I think I should fix it before we do. How do I make the proper repair? A. — In nearly every case, all that is required is to apply a generous coating of roofing cement to the damaged area. However, if the flashing is in bad condition and appears to require replacing, get a new flashing collar. Tell the lumber yard, roofing or other dealer exactly what it is to be used for. There are a number of products on the market for re- patching such areas (aside from roofing cement), including one that calls for covering the gap with a piece of fiberglass fabric and then applying a patching compound. Q. — The wood shingles on the walls of our fairly new house have never been treated. I want to apply a wood preservative. Can it be obtained in colors? A. — Some types can. There Is enough pigment in the preservative to provide a color, but not so much as to hide the wood grain. Q. — I often see the term "work triangle" in reference to kitchen arrangements. What does it mean? A. — It refers to appliance placement. The three main appliances — ^ refrigerator, sink and stove — should form a triangle whose sides total no less than 12 feet and no more than 22 feet. When the triangle is this size or dose to it, so the scientific studies say, there is a EDNA GIBSON -Hope (Ark.j photo by Roger Head minimum amount of walking required of the person preparing the meals.

Here Come Strawberry Shortcakes By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Nowadays cooks are likely to make individual biscuits for strawberry shortcake rather than to bake the biscuit dough the old-fashioned way, in one large round pan. This new custom evolved because only the number of biscuits to be served at a particular meal need be filled and topped with the berries whereas the big strawberry-doused shortcake doesn't hold over. Because in the following recipe the biscuits are made with solid white vegetable shortening, we've added grated orange rind for flavor; they're medium-rich with soft thick insides. In some families the traditional New England way of serving strawberry shortcake with "pour" cream still prevails, as called for in this rule. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES 2 pints strawberries Honey P/4 cups unsifted flour, stir to aerate before measuring 3 teaspoons baking powder % to 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar Hospital Notes MEMORIAL HOSPITAL ADMITTED: Mrs. Hansel Mitchell, Debbie Simmons, Mrs. Archie Smith, W.L.
