Here's the Answer By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q. — In the instructions for a project I am planning, there is mention of self-tapping screws. My hardware dealer says he doesn't know what they are. Can you tell me? A. — Ninety-nine hardware dealers out of 100 probably know that self-tapping screws are what generally are called sheet metal screws. They get the name self-tapping from the fact that they cut their own threads into metal when driven into place. Go back to your dealer and tell him you want sheet metal screws. Q, — I want to finish the attic in our house. Can you tell me how to add a dormer? A. — If you have to ask, forget it. This is a major structural job that requires skill and knowledge. If done poorly, it can cost you a lot to have it fixed. Besides, even if instructions would do you good, there isn't half enough space here to give you the details. Why not have the dormer put in professionally, then tackle the finished room or rooms yourself? Q. — The concrete slab of our patio has started to develop powdery spots in places. How can I fix this? A. — Apply a coat of concrete sealer sold in most hardware stores, lumber yards and building supply dealers. If you intend to paint the concrete now or at some later date, read the label of the sealer to be sure that it can be painted over. Q. — The subfloor in my attic is laid at right angles to the joists. If I finish the attic at some later time and put down strip flooring, should it be laid in the same direction as the subfloor? A. — No. Install it at right angles to the subfloor. And put down some building paper between the subfloor and the new floor.

Golden Age Club honored Male nurse wants to be a woman By Abigail Van Buren C 1(74 by Th« Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old white male nurse. I love sports and excelled in track. I was saved by the grace of Jesus Christ two years ago. I read my Bible daily and sing in the gospel choir. Even though I am a born-again Christian, I am miserable. All my life I have wanted to be a woman. I would love to be on the U.S. Women's Olympic Track team. I can cook, sew and type. I have never cared anything about mechanics, engineering or any of the so-called masculine careers. I hate hunting and fishing. I never could kill a living thing. Abby, this secret desire to be a woman is about to destroy me. I am not a homosexual, but I'd give anything to have a sex change operation. Where is this done? Is is against the law? I will go anywhere. I'd rather be dead than continue living like this. Abby, if the Lord really loves me, why did He give me a man's body when I feel and think like a woman? I have been this way all my life. Please help mel SAVED BUT DIFFERENT DEAR SAVED: The Lord created all of us, and why he made you "different" I do not know. Nature sometimes makes biological blunders, as is the case when one's body does not conform with his (or her) natural feelings. You are not alone. Don't feel guilty. One cannot help what he feels. I believe that knowledge, skill and talent are divinely inspired, and that those scientists, physicians and surgeons whose combined efforts have made sex-change operations possible do so with God's guidance. For information about sex-reassignment and related problems, write to The Erickson Foundation, 1627 Moreland Ave., Baton Rouge, La. 79808 DEAR ABBY: I am writing a paper on modern marriage and would appreciate your help. From the wife's point of view, what is the most common complaint about her husband? From the husband's point of view, what is the most common complaint about the wife? B.H. DEAR B.H.: The wife's Number One complaint: "My husband doesn't appreciate me." The husband's Number One complaint: "She nags me." DEAR ABBY: My wife is a fraud. About four years ago I made a deal with her. I told her if she would quit smoking I would buy her a pair of diamond earrings she wanted very much. She agreed to quit, and I bought her the earrings. I should tell you that we had been married for 30 years and I thought I could trust her. Well, a year ago I caught her smoking. She said she really hadn't started to smoke again, but she'd take a cigaret "occasionally^ tojkeep^lvii^from eating between meals because she was trying to keep" her weight down. At that time she gave me her word that she wouldn't smoke again. I am almost certain that she is smoking behind my back, but I haven't caught her at it yet. If I can prove that she's smoking should I sell the earrings to teach her a lesson? UNHAPPY HUSBAND DEAR UNHAPPY: No. But ask her to hand them over, and put them away as an incentive for her to swear off again. 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.

New bride honored at surprise shower —Photo by John Henley with Star camera The Kiwanis Club was co-sponsor of a fish dinner recently attended by twenty-two members of the Golden Age Club at the private dining room of the Trade Winds Inn. Guests included Mr. and Mrs. Paul Henley, Parks and Recreation Department, John Henley of the Hope- Hempstead County Chamber of Commerce, and representatives of A.A.R.P. Even Gourmets Dig These Apples Mrs. Paul Murphy nee Janice Miller, who was married on October 18, was honored with a surprise bridal shower Tuesday night in the home of Mrs. Judy Foley. She was assisted by Miss Ginger Hiscott. The hostesses presented Janice a rosebud corsage. Flower arrangements and other decorations carried out a pink and white color scheme. After several games were played -the honoree opened her gifts and displayed them. A cake embossed with pink rosebuds, pink Tropicana punch, mints and nuts were served from a table covered with a white linen cloth and centered with a permanent arrangement of apple blossoms. The Murphys are at home on North Hervey Street. Quick breads are improved by resting the dough for 15 minutes before placing in the oven to bake. This allows the bread to rise just a little, but not enough to keep the top from cracking during the baking period. By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Each year we've made candy apples for Halloween and, following tradition, we've used medium or large-size fruit. Youngsters love them, but I've always noticed that most of the time there's too much apple and usually half of it gets thrown away. This year, spurred on by inflation, we did something different. We used small Mcfntosh apples (the bag was marked No. 1 — 2-inch minimum) and coated them with chocolate. Success. Our young visitors ate every bit. Our grownup guests with epicurean tastes did the same. So, if you're giving a Halloween supper party, these Chocolate Apples will make a fun dessert. Our discriminating adult friends enjoyed the stick apples so much because the coating was made with real chocolate rather than the ersatz product. Advice: read the label when vou're buying semi-sweet chocolate pieces. The cost? At New York City prices, and they're higher than those in some other parts of the country, our .-batch of Chocolate Apples cost about 90c. These days a treat such as this for lOc a portion is a bargain. If the apples you use come from S iur own tree or. you've cadged em from a neighbor's, you can of course »nake this Halloween offering for much less. CHOCOLATE APPLES 9 small apples, about 1% pounds wooden craft sticks l-3rd cup (about) finely chopped walnuts or peanuts 6-ounce package (1 cup) semi-sweet real chocolate pieces 2 tablespoons light or dark syrup 2 tablespoons butter or margarine IVi teaspoons water Wash and dry apples. Remove stems: hold the stem in one hand and rotate apple with the other and stem should come out easily. Insert a craft stick in the stem end of each apple. Spread the nuts fairly thickly on a small cookie sheet or similar utensil in 9 rounds, each the diameter of the apple. In the top of a double boiler placed over hot (not boiling) water stir together the chocolate, corn syrup, butter and water until chocolate melts completely. Remove from heat and water, but keep water at hand. Work quickly; tip double-boiler top and twirl apple in the chocolate mixture; remove quickly and holding apple stick down over pan, let chocolate spread so apple is coated; place apple stick side up on a round of the nuts. As chocolate I want to take this method of thanking everyone who remembered me, in any way, during my stay in St. Michael's Hospital in Texarkana. I especially appreciate the prayers, visits, cards and flowers from my friends at the Hope Star and from my Church.

(Gus) Collins ciM************************** HALLOWEEN TREAT—Apples coated chocolate and embellished with nuts. with gets lower in pan, use a spoon to help coat the apples with the chocolate. If chocolate gets too thick to spread easily, place it over the hot water to warm it. When all apples are coated, refrigerate uncovered until chocolate has set. If you want to add more nuts to the apples, remove coated apples from refrigerator when chocolate has set but is not entirely firm (about 15 minutes) and roll the bottom sides of each apple In extra finely chopped nuts, then return to refrigerator uncovered until chocolate sets completely. The apples may be refrigerated overnight but you may want to let them stand at room temperature about 1 hour before serving. If you haven't a double-boiler you can improvise by using a small or medium metal or heatproof-glass mixing bowl set over a saucepan or in a skillet of water that is very hot but not boiling. lie Smart A balanced diet is still the best way to insure good skin and health.
