What's the Penalty For Wife-Beating? DEAR ABBY: Beth and I have been married about 18 years and have a very good marriage and two adorable children. I have been traveling quite a bit lately in my business and it has created a slight problem. Yesterday when I came off the road, after having driven from 7 a.m. until- 6 p.m. Beth says, "It's a lovely evening, let's go for a little ride." When I am out of town I eat in restaurants all the time, which gets pretty tiresome, so when I come home I look forward to a good, home - cooked meal. Well, Beth greets me at the door with, "I've been cooped up in the house all week, let's eat . out." Tell me, Dear Abby, what is the penalty for wife beating in the state of Nebraska? RON DEAR RON: I don't know but I would guess that you'd be abead to "take a little ride" and eat out occasional- DEAR ABBY: The Other day a letter came addressed to my husband. Thinking it was an advertisement, I opened it anf 1 found several pictures of nude women with a letter saying, "If you want more, send money," I suppose I am naive, but I was shocked. I don't know whether my. husband sent for these pictures or not. If he didn't, shouldn't these people be reported for sending this kind of stuff thru the mails? My problem is this: I'm afraid if I show this stuff to my husband and question him he'll start having all his mail sent to his office and I won't see any of it. He is sometimes a little careless with money and charges things he doesn't want me to know about. I recently quit working, and now I see all the mail before he does, and I like it this way. What do you suggest? HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Your big- gelt problem, » I lee It, ii the obvious Itck of communication and mutual trust between you two.

DEAR ABBvTl am a maiden lady, 70 years of age, 1 retired W years ago and am making my home with my sister, 74, and her husband, 76. My brother-in-law is a kind man and a good Christian, We have had a happy home together because we all like to do the came things. Of course, at our age, any one of us might pass away at any time, which raises this question: If my sister should go first, her husband would be utterly helpless to cook and keep house for himself, so since it is "my house, too, I know my sister would want me to stay on and look after him. But how would this look to other people? My brother-in-law has n§ other relatives. Your advice, please?

What do you think of a law limiting campaign spending to allow the "poor" man to seek office? [YE DECIDE? TO BECOME A NURSE I 6ROKJOP! Poling on Religon f HOW PIP W HAPPEN y^ID PECIPE THAT "We// / think if people are crazy enough to spend it then we shouldn't have a law to slow them down. There are so many other things we need laws against without worrying about this. The cost though keeps the little man out of the race when he probably could do a better job."—Mrs. D. L. Sheppard, Dell "/ think a lot of the campaign money could be better spent by getting jobs for the poor. This would be better than giving money to them." —Mrs. H.R. Crowford, Dell "It would be good, but I don't think it could be enforced. There art so many hidden ways of spending money on campaigns. Such a law would give the poor man a that at office though" — Curtis David Poling; By DAVID POLING JERUSALEM (NBA) A year has passed since the stunning Israeli victory over the Tab states. Already called tte June 5th War, this six-day conflict of 1967 continues to dis- months later. The Christian Church nas been ineffective, so far, in its attempts to provide a just and lasting agreement between the Arabs and the Jews. So has the United Nations. Border m- cidentsand inflammatory speeches have increased and many observers fear a new outbreak of military action. It is, therefore, most timely and opportune to consider the statement issued this month by some 60 Chrisian educators, missionaries, doctors and fraternal workers. In a signed appeal, these Americans in Lebanon have urged the world Christian community to face up to these realities of the Middle East: Too many Westerners believe that the Arab community is made up of shiftless, nomadic tribesmen, riding greasy horses in a Lawrence of Arabia scenario. The fact is that the great proportion of homeless refugees are farmers, villagers and city dwellers. One has only to visit the crowded universities in the Arab cities to know that the camel has been replaced by the motor scooter, the veil by the miniskirt. Westerners should be honest about the claims of the Arabs to the Holy City of Jerusalem. Their Christian roots are just as meaningful as the Hebrew; Arab ties to the city date back to the seventh century. Moslems, as well as Christians, feel as keenly about the sacred cites of Jerusalem as do devout Jews. The Lebanese Christians plead for some understanding of the Arab mood. Western civilization is aware of the fierce pride that Israel feels in being master of Palestine, after so long a separation and so deep a sorrow in the horror of World War II. But consider the Arab shame and humiliation at losing his land - and his myths — in th« three encounters with Israel. The most vital part of thl* document deals with the whole question of farce. "We must challenge the as- Himption that might makei -by david poling- right. Far from being defenseless, Israel within 20 years has won three wars, increased her original size fourfold, presently occupies an area encompassing l.Smillion Arabs, has caused displacement of another 1.5 million Arabs." I don't think the Christian community can back away from its major responsibility in the Middle East crisis. As the Lebanese churchmen see it, the gospel is right on the line: "The Christian obligation Is to minister to the last, the least and the lost of this world. Just as Chritsians were called upon to do all within their power 25 years ago to relieve the suffering of Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, so now we are called upon to do all within our power to relieve the suffering Arab refugees." Some of these Arabs are Christian. That misses the point. All of them are people and that should be reason enough for involvement and reconciliation. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS J4ealtn - by william lawrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: "Could you tell me what effect Achromycin has on teeth? Our dentist says that my son's permanent teeth are gray because of large doses of Achromycin he got when he was a baby." ANSWER: Antibiotics can cause permanent straining of teeth. Not all antibiotics do this. It's the tetracycline group that seems to be the only offender. Tetracycline is the generic name for a group of antibiotics sold under many brand names. Some of the more popular ones on this long list are: Archromy- cin, Tetrex, Panmycin, Sumy- cm and Tetracyn. Most of these drugs are sold with this precautionary note: "...use of tetracycline during tooth development (last trimester of pregnancy, neonatal period and early childhood) may cause discoloration of teeth (yellow - gray - brownish)." Permanent teeth begin to develop about the sixth month of pregnancy and continue in various stages of development up to eight or nine years of age. During this entire time, ingestion of tetracycline may disturb the calcification mechanism of teeth and therefore should-not be the drug of preference. Other antibiotics should be substituted to fight disease. The degree of staining depends On amount of drug taken and length of treatment, but also varies with the person. Stains are permanent and are in the enamel, not on the surface.- They can't be rubbed or polished off. There are some few cases when Stain is not severe and is close to the surface. In these cases, it's possible to shave off the stained enamel and highly polish the new surface. This technique should be highly selective and depends on your dentist's judgment. Teeth sometimes become markedly sensitive after this treatment. Later in life, when teeth are fully formed and roots.fully developed, stained teeth can be capped with porcelain crowns, • This can restore them to natural beauty. Please Mind ycur questions about dental health to Dr. Lawrence in care of this paper. While he cannot answer each letter personally, letters of general intereit will be answered IB this ttlumn. London's Downing Street, known for No. 10, the prime minister's home, was named after the man who originally constructed it. The World Almanac notes that Sir George Downing (•1623-84), English soldier and politician, built the street on a grant from King: Charles II. Interestingly enough, Downing was educated at Harvard College, becoming its second graduate. THE HI K OODBiEB NEWfa THE OOURIEP. NEWS OO. HARRY W. HAINES, 1988-68 HARRY A.
