DEAR ABBY: If you hear from a woman in the Indiana area who claims that her husband is trying to kill her, don't pay any attention t o her. She's my wife. She once took a bowl of oatmeal down to the corner drug store and asked the man there to "analyze" it. She said it "tasted funny," and she was sure I had put roach powder, on it The pharmacist later told her it probably ''tasted' funny" because there was salt on it instead of sugar, but there was nothing wrong with it. Another time she accusec me of trying to run her down . with my car. She has always been a little strange, but lately she is getting worse. In case something happens to her I don't want to get b 1 a m e d. Hew can I stay in the clear? "WORRIED' NEAR HAMMOND DEAR WORRIED-Even more important than your staying in the clear, is getting help for your wif who is obviously mentally ill. Tell your doctor what you've told me. And don't wait for "something'' to happen. It might happen to you. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are the same age, but he prefers older women. I don't know why he married me. He didn't have to. Soon after we were married, I found out he had been living with a woman in her forties since he. was 18. (He was then 23.) He wanted to keep on seeing her, but I pi't a stop to it. Then he started seeing a neighbor's wife. She was in her early fifties. We had to move away from there before she broke up our marriage. When our first child was born, I hired an ugl> old woman in her sixties to help me. I thought surely my bus- band could be trusted with her, but I was wrong. He was with her every chance he got. Everybody tells me I am nice looking. Is there something wrong with me? Or is it him? , RIVERSIDE DEAR RIVERSIDE: It's Urn.

BECKLER WASHINGTON (AP) - When you live in a warm house and eat three warm meals a day, says Frank Smith, time has a different meaning than- when you live In a tent with no job and little to eat. Smith came to Washington Thursday to try to get the government to. hurry up and approve a (435,000 grant from the antlpoverty program tor a do-it- yourself homebuilding project for hundreds of homeless Negro famiUea near Greenville, Miss. They applied or the money in February and haven't heard anything yet. Smith, a Negro, came to see if Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, could help get some action. Smith led a delegation of Mississippi Negroes into the ornate committee room where Powell presides. "We're her* because Washington seem* to run on a different schedule," said Smith. "We have to get started right away. When you live in a tent and people shoot at you at night and your kids can't take a bath and your wife hat no privacy, a month can be a long time, even a day." The people living in the tents - they call it "strike city" are 48 men, women and children in eight sharecropping families who were evicted from plantations in the area, "partly for because they registered to economic reasons arid partly vote," said Smith. Smith said the 48 -are one group of a far greater number. He brought one of mem'with, him, John Henry .Sylvester. Powell and three other congressmen, Reps. William P. Ryan, D-N.Y., Phillip Burton, D-Calif, and Jonathan B. Bingham, D-N.Y., asked. Smith about the situation. Q. Why were you evicted? A. Well, we weren't making enough money to pay the light bills and buy food and like that. I was making $6 a day driving a tractor. We asked for a raise and he told us to get off. He run us off. Q. What did you ask for? A. Seven dollars a day. The hoe-men were getting JM a day. Q. What hours did you work? A. I don't know about hours. Sun to sun. Q. What do you do for food? What do you eat for breakfast? A. Rice mostly. That's all there is. Q. What about dinner? A. Some peas and some bread. Smith said the families only recently started getting surplus foods after staging a sit-in at the Greenville Air Force Base to attract attention to their plight. Rep. Burton exploded. 'Tar having a great difficulty keep-, Ing my stomach in order," he; said. "Nothing we seem abl« t*' do, no law, no program we pass, seems to be able to help.thr people who need help the most. I apologize to you." ; Powell promised to apply what pressure he could to th« Office of Economic Opportunity to act on the grant, which would be used to buy materials and train the people in building skills so they could build homes for themselves. The Synthetic oil used to lu-' bricate Westclox watch bearings cost almost $2,000 an ounce, thr company says.
