», 1«M AlOONA flM.) ADVANC1-1 'Hot Seat' Caused by Cold Shoulder By Abigail Van fiuren DEAR ABBY: I stopped by my husband's place of business just before closing time to get a lift home. When I walked in, he had the guiltiest look on his face, and the back door of his office was wide open. There was a chair drawn up right next to his. I felt the seat, and it was still warm. We have been married 33 years ,and I never worried about his taking an interest in other women because for the last 10 years he has had no interest in me. Now I am beginning to wonder if maybe the reason he had no interest in me was because he was all worn out from his interest in others. I would like your opinion. SUSPICIOUS. DEAR SUSPICIOUS: It could be that the hot seat you're worrying about results from your cold shoulder. Warm up one and watch the other cool off. DEAR ABBY: I am a young mother of three who has lived in this neighborhood only a tew months. When I need something from the store in a hurry, I ask my neighbor's 12-year- old daughter to go to the store for me. Of course I pay her for it. When she returns, she makes a habit of sitting around my house for a few hours. I never especially liked this, but didn't feel like telling her to go home. Well, this little monster went home and told her mother that she does my housework and baby sits for me while I go across the street to the bar and get drunk! Her mother believed her, too. .A neighbor told me this. All I could do was deny it. My husband wants to move away from this neighborhood but I love Roy's Grill at Bancroft gets remodeling work Bancroft — Work began this week on an extensive remodel' ing program for Roy's Grill here. The restaurant will be ultra-modern in every respect when the renovation is completed. A large dining area will be constructed adjacent to the present kitchen with red American Jeauty Carpeting being layed. A "Modern Kleen" kitchen grill will be installed, in addi- ion to the present kitchen, along the west wall with stainless teel fixtures. The walls will be inished in formica, and mahogany paneling. The booths will >e contoured in shape of ma- logany color with the counters o match. The counters will be urrounded with barrel shaped stools complete with chrome ba- es. Amber hanging light fixtures will be located in the dining area with indirect lighting over he new grill section. The flooring, other than the dining area will be of the new vinyl corlon tile. No contempla- ,ed closing is expected during the remodeling process, expected to take from two to three weeks. satisfactory rental oqrrttnenf* eon b* entered into #ith iaW Companies.

What's the solution? A GOOD MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: When you »«• this little "monster" ask her if she wants to tell her mother she lied, or does she want YOU to tell her. Don't let a 12-year-old tale-bearer drive you out of a house you love. DEAR ABBY: I am faced with a situation which baffles me. I am a grown woman of 40, and a neighbor of mine (also a grown woman) is my problem. Everytime 1 am in her company she paws and pets me and grabs my hand and tries to hold it. She is constantly kissing me. 1 have been told she is "lonely." Well I've been "lonely." too, but not for another woman. I try to stay away from her unless our husbands are around, but she comes over when I'm alone. I've told my husband why this neighbor makes me nerv ous, but he says she's a married woman and I am making a lot out of nothing. I am running out of excuses to keep her away from me. 1 feel like a prisoner in my own home. My husband is a physician so 1 can't sign my name. Can you help me? A PRISONER DEAR PRISONER: Apparently you have an abnorma neighbor woman, of a very sticky variety. Assuming you are no unconsciously encouraging her, and from your letter I woulc say you are not, the time has come for you to stiffen your spine and TELL her if she doesn't quit pawing you, she isn't welcome. Life presents many situations requiring forthright action if one is to protect himself, and if you feel like a prisoner in your own home, this is definitely one of them.
