This Hubby's No Clothes Horse By Abigail Van Buren . t e 1MT kr CMeit* TrlMM-N. V. NMTI !<««.>• IM.1 DEAI^ ABBY: My husband is a carpenter-builder who specializes in remodeling homes. He is a fine craftsman and takes pride in his work, having learned his trade from his father who was a builder. The problem is this: When my husband calls on a prospective customer, he feels it is all right to go directly from off a job in his old dirty work clothes. He says people know he is a working man and they might even have more confidence in his work seeing him that way. I admit there are times when it is more convenient for him to call on folks to estimate a job on his way home from work, but I say he should take clean clothes with him in his truck and clean up before calling on these people. My theory being that if people see him dirty and sloppy they might think his work is sloppy, too. ' My husband insists that his appearing in old dirty work clothes has no adverse effect on his customers, but I think he is Just making up excuses so he won't have to clean up. He reads your column, so if you, or any of your readers have any ideas about this, I'd appreciate hearing an outsider's opinion. HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Personally, if I were interested in a remodeling job, I would hire the man with a reputation for quality work and fair prices. If he came straight off a job in his old work clothes, I wouldn't object as long as he didn't (rack up my carpets. , DEAR ABBY: An old gentleman .[?], one whom I have befriended on several occasions, recently betrayed my trust in him by stealing some rare coins from my collection, a valuable unset diamond, a revolver from my gun collection, as well as several old keepsake antiques, which I had intended to donate to the local museum at a later date. He accomplished this during a couple of social visits he payed me, in my home. Upon discovering my loss, I payed him a return visit, and while there I complained bitterly about the theft of these items. I didn't accuse him openly, but strongly hinted that he was under suspicion. ' ' •'-.'.' The next day he called on me, and had occasion to visit the, bathroom. On his departure I found a few of the missing coins on the wash basin. However, the most valuable coins, the unset diamond and revolver are still unreturned. The man in question is a very well-to-do and respected citizen in this community. [So am I.] What is the best way to regain my stolen possessions? I am positive this man is the thief, but wish to avoid publicity if Possible. VICTIMIZED IN OREGON DEAR VICTIMIZED: In order to protect yourself, and regain your stolen possessions, I advise you to discuss this with your lawyer, (Clip this letter and reply''from'your local newspaper and mail it to the man in a plain white envelope—minus, of course, this parenthetical addition.] ' DEAR ABBY: What, in your opinion, .makes for true happiness? PHILOSOPHER DEAR PHILOSOPHER: It's hard to say. So far, both ' poverty and wealth have failed.
