November 11, 1974 Stitchin' Time HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page three Perfect marriage—a sweater set By Judy LoVe They've got different personalities, but they're beautifully compatible. Does it sound like the perfect marriage? Well, it's the perfect pairing of a super sweater set-for knitters only. By today's new rules, a sweater set can be made of two toppers that look great in steady company—or as independents. Such a pair is this week's set, a cable-knit sleeveless cardigan paired with a V-necked pullover with roll-up sleeves. We've done them in compatible contrasting colors to play up the strong points of each. The look you'll get is the season's snappiest, especially if you add a third partner—a long-sleeved blouse. The blouse can introduce a new and harmonizing color to this outfit or you can choose a print that picks up one or both of the shades in your set of sweaters. You can knit both sweaters in Botany's easy-care, machine washable Spectator yarn. The pullover takes about four two-ounce balls, the cardigan takes about seven. You'll have fun pairing off these unidentical twins with all your favorite casual skirts and slacks^nd you can knit them for sizes 8 to 14. For your set of knitting instructions, send 50 cents to S.titchin' Time, c/o this newspaper, Radio City Station, Box 503, New York, New York 10019. Ask for leaflet No. 408 and be sure to enclose your name, address and zip code. KNIT KNACKS Dear Judy Love: My daughters love wearing crocheted or knitted house Unidentical twin sweaters make versatile additions to knit wardrobe. Cable knit cardigan layers over a V-neck pullover with roll-up sleeves. slippers. I find that they are terribly slippery. Do you have any suggestions of ways to remedy this? C.L.; Denver, Colo. Dear C.L.: I discovered this problem several years ago myself. After trying many things I found that using iron—on fabric works won- The Fawn Alice King Formby I lay dose down beside the river, My gun well-cocked, my heart aquiver. The soft-tongued water murmured low, Swinging the"lily-pads to and fro. The song of a,bird fire-winged and^thfpatedijHs. Upon the wimls^f summer.floafed, w * a r ^ While in nearby pools, alert and calm, Great bass through lucent circles swam; And farther on, a rushy brink, A shadowy fawn stole down to drink. I lay quite still, with half-closed eyes, Wrapped in a dream of Paradise. Then up I sprang with my gun drawn With a keen desire to stay that fawn. Where was it now, gone like my dream? I heard only a fish hawk scream. derfully well. For the sole, cut an oval piece. For the heel, you will need a round piece. Iron these on the bottom of the slipper before sewing up the seam. This should make Ihem safer and also give them another benefit— they'll wear longer. Best, Judy Love. (NEWSPAPER ENTKKl'KISE ASSN.) B&PW speaker %\ 'W 1 '' ' V. Family Marriage survives Lib lifestyles of the '60s By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Joanne) Surprise! We still believe in marriage as the cornerstone of American life. So says the recent Virginia Slims-Roper Poll of 3,000 women and 1,000 men. New lifestyles have received so much publicity, I was amazed to find that only 4 per cent of those Questioned would choose to live together without marriage or live alone or live on a commune. Ninety-six per cent wanted marriage, nearly half of these preferring what we would call a family lib-style partnership marriage. "There is a strong pull among women toward bonafide partnerships in marriage. Nearly half the women surveyed prefer marriages in which both husband and wife work and share the responsibilities of household and bringing up children. Over half of those polled are in favor of combining marriage, children and career. Since three of five women under 30 feel this way, it is very likely to become a strong trend in the future," according to the report. As marriage becomes more of a partnership arrangement, satisfaction within marriage seems to increase. We mentioned in a previous column that major polls taken in I960 and 1970 suggested that married women were generally less happy than married men or single women. This 1974 po 1, however shows married women as happier than single women. And here's a comforting fact - women over 30 express more satisfaction with their lives than women under 30. . . Not only do most Americans want to get married, most marry for the same reason - love. A feeling of personal liking is a close second in propelling people to the altar, with the desire for children motivating many women and sexual desire plus the need to avoid loneliness attracting many men to matrimony. . Financial security and sharing similar backgrounds were once considered to be essential, but 71 per cent of the women polled now believe that marrying a man ot another religion is acceptable, even for their own daughters. Being able to talk together about feelings, sexual fidelity, a good sexual relationship and the ability of both partners to see the humorous side of things - these are the major ingredients of a good marriage, according to the 4,000 people questioned. But when the marriage is not satisfying, three out of five favor divorce. . Men and women rank intelligence as the trait they value most. But beyond this, men are stilLholdmg to certain traditional notions of masculinity and femininity. They look for women with sex appeal, gentleness and the ability to express emotions. But in men, they admire self control, leadership ability and independence. Women tend to value the same traits in both sexes - sensitivity to the feelings ot others, ability to express emotions, gentleness and humor. Men and women then have been able to incorporate new egalitarian views into the traditional ideal of love and marriage. Yet for the time being, men seem to want women equal - but different.

Diet Tip Be careful when you're feeling bored, angry, tired or worried while trying to diet. These moods can make you turn to food for comfort. Her husband claims to be 18 and single By Abigail Van Buren <9 1974 by The Chicago Trltaun* ..,, DEAR ABBY;,First;let me tell you that my husband is 38 and I am 36. We haye been married for six years, after dating for eleven years. ,We wanted to be sure we were ready for marriage. I was not snooping, because I am not that type, but before the Goodwill people took away an old trunk which had been stored in our attic for a long time, I looked through it, and came across about 200 letters, addressed to my husband in care of a post office box in a nearby town. (He has to go through that little town on his way to work.) My curiousity got the best of me because these letters were in three different handwritings, all addressed to him in care of the same box number. Some were dated as far back as two years ago! It seems he is corresponding with three young girls (13 and 14-year-olds) through some pen pal club. I don't know what he has written to them, but they think he is a single 18-year-old boy, interested in a romantic relationship. He is college-educated and I only graduated from high school. He is a religious man, Abby, and respected in his community. Why would he do something like this? la he sick? What should I do about it? WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: Your husband could be sick. Tell him exactly how you came upon the letters and insist that he see his doctor. His behavior is symptomatic of a serious physical (and/or mental) illness which, if treated in time, can be helped. DEAR ABBY: I am a 42 year-old-man who is normal in every respect, but I am 4 ft. 11 and weigh 115. I am single and very lonely. I heard that there was a national convention of The Little People of America in Ashville, N.C. last July, I would have gone, but it was over by the time I learned about it. If you use this in the paper, please omit my name and town because some normal-sized people tend to make fun of us little people although they mean no harm. If you have any information about this club for little people, I would certainly appreciate it. LITTLE GUY DEAR LITTLE: I'll try. Anyone out there want to do a lot of little people a big favor? Write to Abby with the information and I'll print it. DEAR ABBY: I have been married to the same man for 30 years. When he picked a wife, he wanted a church-going; girl who didn't drink, smoke or dance. One who was quiet, modest and not sexy. I was that girl. I gave him two children (now 28 and 26, both married). Now my husband has decided that he no longer loves me. Instead he wants a younger woman who is sexy, can dance and "turn him on." He doesn't care if she smokes or drinks either. Behind my back he had divorce papers served on me. We are both 52. He never let me work because he wanted me to stay home and be a full-time wife and mother, so I have no skills. I don't want a divorce, and am contesting it. I left my home and am living with my daughter. I attend church regularly, and I still love him regardless. The lawyers say we could live separately and come and go as we please, but that's against my way of life. I don't believe in divorce, so what do you advise? MARRIED FOR LIFE DEAR MARRIED: You may prevent your husband from getting a divorce, but you can't force him to live with you or "love" you. Maybe if you hang on long enough, he'U change his mind and return to you, but you have no guarantees. In the meantime, instead of stubbornly clinging to a onesided marriage, why not find something constructive to do with your time? Like volunteer work? At 52, you are still young enough. Life is short, make it sweet. Everyone has, a problem XVhai's yours'.' For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No 69700. L.A.. Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. For Abby'b new booklet. "What Teen-agers Want to Know." send SI to Abigail Van Buren. 132 I.askv Or.. Beverly Hills.

A whiff of childhood \ Lure family to healthful eating with peanut butter/banana bread. By Aileen Claire NEA Food Editor A one-bowl quick bread recipe always is welcome in this day of active mothers who are busy but want their children to eat healthfully,.. and have some memories, too. Few aromas kindle the thoughts of youth as much as that of homemade bread baking. A hearty and nutritious bread combines protein-rich peanut butter and bananas with a dollop of orange. This goes well in the school-lunch box when spread with cream cheese or as a breakfast bite with milk to start the day more nutritiously than most individuals do today. PEANUT BUTTER BANANA BREAD 1/3 cup peanut butter 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 medium) 1/4 cup milk Grated rind of 1 orange 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 /4 teaspoon baking soda In a large bowl cream peanut butter and butter. Gradually stir in sugar. Beat in eggs until smooth. Stir in banana, milk and grated orange rind. Sift remaining ingredients and stir into bowl. Stir until smooth. Spoon dough into a greased 8'/ 2 x4'/6x2y2 loaf pan. Spread dough until top is smooth. Bake in a preheated 350- degree for 60 to 70 minutes or until bread feels firm to the touch. Unmold loaf a..c- cool on a rack thoroughly before cutting into thin slices. Serve spread with butter, honey, cream cheese or your favorite jam, ielly or preserves. Makes one 8^x4'/2x2'/ <! -inch loaf. (NKWSI'AI'Elt KNTEKPKISE ASSN.)
