Affair Some Advice On Mothers-In-Law Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about the young woman who is "Struggling in California." She was much maligned by her mother-in- law, and her husband refused to intervene. "Don't put me in the middle," he said. As a pastor, 1 have heard a great many complaints about mothers- in-law. If only this wife could understand that her mother-in-law is desperately unhappy and that the anger she directs toward her daughter-in-law is nothing personal. This mother wouldn't like her son's wife no matter who she was. All she knows is that somebody else comes first now, and that is very painful for her. When your mother-in-law telephones, read your mail or grab a magazine. Every few minutes, say, "Oh really?" or "Of course" or Ann Landers "You don't say." Let her talk as long as she wants. It's her nickel. It's a no-win situation for you, so don't try to defend yourself. Just let her talk, talk, talk. -- VERMONT DEAR VERMONT: "Struggling" certainly hit a hot button. I was inundated with letters and they contained a lot of good advice. Read on. From Columbus, Ga.: I lived with my mother-in-law when we were first married, and then she lived with us for 34 years, until she died. She had red hair and the disposition that usually goes with it. But I got along with this old battle-ax beautifully. My secret: I never responded to anything she said, no matter how hateful. She'd try her clarmiest to get a rise out of me, but no way would I let her win by getting into a fight. Finally, she'd blow herself out like a summer storm, then go out and buy me a present. "Struggling" should try this with her mother-in-law. I'll bet it works. From Louisville: About that woman whose mother-in-law was a miserable witch: I had one of those, too, and I was glad you didn't tell the wife to insist that her husband tell "Mom" off. He would if he could, but he can't. The poor fellow is "mother-hung." I know because I am married to the same kind. These men would need years of therapy and'darned few would get it. From Tacoma, Wash.: My mother-in-law has the meanest mouth in the Western world. Thank God she lives in another state. (We moved.) When I sent her pictures of our children she called me up and said, "The youngest isn't very good-looking. She looks just like you." 1 did not respond. There was a long silence. She then asked, "What did you say?" I replied, "Nothing." She got the message. Four Questions To Spot Alcoholism Q: I once ran across an easy way to remember questions for spotting alcoholism — the letters CAGE. I have lost the article Does this ring a bell with you and, if so, could you repeat it for me? A: Many criteria have been established to help professionals and family members spot symptoms of alcoholism. One of those is popular in professional circles is called the "CAGE" questionnaire. First published in the 1970s by Drs. John Ewing and BA Rouse, it, is still considered relevant when you're trying to decide whether to suspect alcoholism. Drs. Lester L. Coleman & Steven Andrew Davis There are four questions which correspond to the acronym "CAGE." The C stands for "cut down." The question is, "Have you ever tried to cut down on your drinking?" The perceived need to cut down on drinking 'may indicate the presence of alcoholism. The second question, designated by the letter "A", has to do with "annoyed." "Have you ever become annoyed when someone commented on your drinking?" The "G" in "CAGE" relates to guilt. "Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?", again, another warning sign one may be alcoholic. And the "E" is for "eye opener." "Have you ever taken a drink first thing in the morning, a so-called 'eye-opener'?" Someone who has a "yes" answer to one of these questions may need professional" help; a family doctor could help point the way. — S.D. Drs. Coleman and Davis welcome questions from readers. Please write to them in care of this newspaper. Tips On Cleaning, Caring For Silver DEAR FRIENDS: I want to share some tips on cleaning and caring for silver. Silver is usually stored away until a holiday or special event. Actually, it should be used often; it adds luster to its finish and also prevents the rapid formation of tarnish build-up. Silver is easily polished and protected from tarnish. Before storing, polish it with a non-abrasive cleaner which contains a tarnish-preventing agent. This provides an invisible barrier that will repel tarnish formation. When the silver is not being used, it should be stored in a drawer, cabinet or a chest with the new silver protector strips, which will help absorb airborne pollutants that cause tarnish. If you do not have a drawer or chest, store the silver in a plastic bag, plastic wrap or in a. silver- cloth bag along with the silver protector strips. Don't use rubber Heloise bands to secure. After each use, the silver should be washed with a mild soap and water solution and buffed dry. Buffing will prevent water spots and it will create that highly prized finish. A note of caution about the following staining substances: salt, acid (vinegar), sulphur (eggs), mayonnaise, rubber. When silver comes in contact with any of these, it should be rinsed off with water as soon as possible to prevent any staining. It is possible to wash sterling silver in a dishwasher, but these tips should be followed: When you're washing silver in the dishwasher, be sure to put only silver in one of the little sections; never mix it with stainless steel. If you want to, remove the silver before the drying cycle and dry by hand to prevent water spots. Hollow-handle knives or other flatware and hollow-ware should only be hand-washed. Experts now suggest that dipping solutions not be used to clean silver. They do remove unwanted tarnish, but they will also remove the oxide finish that adds subtle shadows which create depth and dimension to detailed silver patterns. Flannel or chamois cloths are best for buffing silver. Synthetic fabrics might be too harsh and could cause ugly scratches. So, remember to use your silver. It's not going to wear out! Taking care of fine silver will ensure beauty, utility and appreciating value. — Heloise WAXED PAPER Dear Heloise: Save the inner waxed paper or plastic from cereal boxes to use as cushions between layers of meat patties, bacon or other meats when freezing them. Cut it to size and use two between each. They are thicker than ordinary rolled waxed paper — and are already paid for. — K. White, Kearneysville, W.Va. TBS Series On Soviets Debuts Tonight NEW YORK (AP) - Filming a documentary inside the Soviet Union cannot occur without omnipresent government officials, state-selected interviewees and limited access to certain areas. Despite the restrictions, executive producer Ira Miskin said he didn't believe his seven-hour documentary, "Portrait of the Soviet Union," was compromised. Many of the Soviets who appear in the film, to be shown in installments tonight, Tuesday and Wednesday on Ted Turner's SuperStation TBS, are members of the Communist Party, handpicked by the government to appear in the film. Officials from Gostelradio, the state broadcasting committee, accompanied his crews on nearly every shoot. "At the end, we had to rely on our own judgment," said Miskin. "And you also see the pictures. You can say anything you want over pictures, but the pictures — what's going on the frame — don't lie." Nevertheless, the result is a flattering depiction of life in the Soviet Union — an official portrait, beautifully photographed, showing only the occasional wart. The series does mention the Soviet Union's problems, but only those that have been raised in the state-controlled media: bureaucratic sluggishness, shoddy workmanship, complaints about consumer goods and housing. Larger problems are inexplicably absent, given the briefest of mentions, or left for viewers to discern for themselves. These include the struggles over Jewish emigration and human rights, the explosive nature of the nation's more than 100 nationalities, the issue of who really wields Kremlin power, and the massive military budget and the war in Afghanistan. "I think the films do look to some degree pro-Soviet," Miskin said in an interview. "I think that our intention was for certain aspects of it to look pro-Soviet. Not pro-Soviet government, but pro-Soviet people." The first episode, which is about the ethnic Russians, is fairly typical. There is poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko, the onetime rebel who is now part of the establishment, reading a few lines from his epic work about the Holocaust, "Babi Yar." That's the only reference to anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union in the entire seven hours. Miskin, who is of Russian extraction and Jewish, said he could not "in good conscience" overlook the problems of Soviet Jewry, but he added that "it's a much more complicated story than can be done in this kind of survey piece. It's a story that deserves its own'hour. "So to the extent that we ignored Jewish emigration, we could not ignore the fact that anti-Semitism existed and exists in the Soviet Union. It is a fact of life. You gotta mention it. We did," he said. What gets more than a mention is music and dancing. There's dancing by Leningrad ballerinas and Russians dressed as Cossacks; by teen-agers in discos and old men straight from a yogurt commercial; by the Georgian state dance troupe and bemedaled Red Army veterans. So much foot-stomping and high-kicking is in the series that some viewers may get the impression the biggest name in the Soviet Union isn't Lenin or Stalin, but Danskin. Miskin, who also did the upbeat "Portrait of America" series for TBS, said he wanted to draw in the general audience; with the music and dance, then give viewers an understanding of the Soviet lifestyle, politics and economy. ••irmiiiiiiiM STATE unemas Hlt.Moriiol 753-4MI !D NOMINATIONS "THE 1AST IMKKM" iPtM3> 7,10 omf Associated Press Don Fairchild with a 1946 Wurlitzer jukebox A Temple Of Praise To Music Machines OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A little bit of Americana is tucked into a stone building on Oklahoma City's southside. It's a bubbling, flashing, throbbing display of the machines that helped mold the country's musical tastes for more than half a century. Nearly 100 of the money- swallowing wood, plastic and chrome jukeboxes that catered to the musical tastes of generations are lined up at Don Fairchild's Juke Box Hall of Fame. Some are extremely rare, including a 1938 Wurlitzer tabletop model and a 1946 AMI referred to as "The Mother of Plastic." There's also one that was called "The Trashcan," a round 1948 Seeburg that opens from the top. "It started out just as a hobby," Fairchild said. "I'd wanted a jukebox for a long time and bought one about five years ago. Then our children wanted to put their music on it and there's only room for so many records. So we got one for their music. "One led to two, two led to four and finally my wife said that something had to be done.'' So Fairchild, a 45-year-old former truck driver, created .the hall of fame. Packed into the building are jukeboxes from 1935, the second year of manufacture, to the newest 1988 models. He has jukeboxes made by each of the "Big Four": Wurlitzer, Rock-0!a, Seeburg and AMI. Only Rock- Ola and AMI still exist, he said. Most of the jukeboxes he has are for sale, but not the 1941-42 cherrywood Wurlitzer Model 780. ' "That's the only one like it in the state," Fairchild said, "They made these for two years, kind of snuck them in at the beginning of World War II." Fairchild hopes not only to show these relics of a bygone musical culture, but also to display the advances made over the years. "The first jukebox was made in 1934 and it was pretty rough technologically," he said. "It held only 12 records and was in an all-wooden cabinet." The technology, naturally, has changed over the years. Fairchild points out one as an example. "The grill resembles a 1948 Buick. The dashboard is off a '48 Buick. Even the keys are identical to the keys that were on the car's radio." Nearby is a futuristic-looking jukebox with a wraparound listing of records. "That's the space model that came out in 1953, the year the Russians launched the first sputnik." It takes more than just a love of the old music machines to be able to take one home, though. The prices are high — up to $9,000 for the 1946 Wurlitzer that sported the oil-filled tubes that bubbled as the music played. For the more modest purchase, Fairchild has the old wall- or table-mounted selection boxes where customers could drop their nickles to hear their favorite tune, "People are buying these to use as rotating telephone directories," he said. "They just flip the cards over, write in the name and phone number. A 12-volt power supply will make it light up and everything." Fairchild's Hall of Fame is something like a a trip back to the 1950s. A view through the window shows a jukebox flanked by mannequins dressed in jeans and bobby sox. Inside, an eight-stool, make-believe ice cream parlor carries out the idea. "The counter was installed in an Oklahoma City store in 1940 and pulled out in 1979," Fairchild says. "It hasn't been used since then." Jukebox speakers hang on the wall, ranging from box-like contraptions to heavily chromed and mirrored teardrop speakers for a 1946 Wurlitzer jukebox for $1,295. Near the speakers hangs a Band Box made in 1948 by Chicago Coin. It consists of a half-dozen miniature band members on a bandstand. "You time it to a jukebox," Fairchild said. "When the jukebox comes on, the curtain opens. When the jukebox begins to play, the band begins to play. Those little men just play their hearts out." Fairchild travels the country looking for additions to his collection. Two new acquisitions still bear their Texas tax stamps — one of them from 1968, MOVIES CASS PUZA 721-13 001 •2.00 All SHOWS LoBtniport 'GOOD MORNING VIETNAM', 7:20-9:30 "ACTION JACKSON" i Men. -Thur. 7:15 Only SHE'S HAVING A BABY" PG-13 Won. - Thur. 7:00 Only AP'S Downrowoor Soy's If you heviiHj pfoplt' in for dinner and you cr« \o bu y |iiil givo hof a coll.
