I have tried it many times over the years, and each time I had to shut up. "LEARNED TO LISTEN" DEAR ABBY: I am 34 and having been going with a girl iny age for three years. I fed her a line only to keep her interested and now I am sorry because she thinks I am in love with her and will eventually marry her. She doesn't date anyone but me and she gets jealous if I look at another girl or want to spend an evening with my buddies. I enjoy her company, but I am not in love with her and never could be. How can I get out of her clutches without losing .her completely? She comes in handy on a rainy Sunday afternoon. TRAPPED DEAR TRAPPED: Do the girl a favor and level with her, but spare her the painful details. Tell her marriage is not on your mind. Then quit dating her, and get some good books for those rainy Sunday afternoons. It's high time yon turned over a new leaf, Romeo. DEAR ABBY: I am a professional soldier now serving in Viet Nam. I have a wonderful wife and four children. I am due for a rotation back to the States next month. I recently received my assignment which is one every sol- died dreams about but very few get. I was thrilled and wrote my wife about the lucky break. She wrote back saying if I wanted to move I could go without her and the children as she wasn't moving there. I don't think this is fair to me. Should I try to get my assignment changed, or go there without her? I think I deserve more than an empty home to come home to. LOST IN VIET NAM DEAR LOST: So do I, but don't try to fight the battle of the home front at Mich a distance — wait until you get home. In the meantime, ask your chaplain for a few pointers on how to make a wife face up to her responsibilities before you bring up the heavy artillery. DEAR ABBY: My sister recently divorced her husband after 18 years of marriage. What does that make her ex- husband to my children? It burns me up to hear them calling him "Uncle Bill." And he still refers to them as his nieces and nephews. Will you please print this and set a lot of neople straight? BURNED IN TORONTO DEAR BURNED: Your sister's former husband is now a former uncle to your children. Simmer down — it's probably more due to habit than malice. DEAR ABBY: Apropos people who bore their guests to death with tales of their trips and add to it, endless hours of slides, may I share a wonderful suggestion given to me by a very wise drama professor at U.S.C.? Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles,- Cal., 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self - addressed envelope. Painted lane markers are passe on California highways. Replacing; them are raised, plastic markers, above, clearly/visible in daylight and which, at night, reflect headlamp light. Spanning a 24-foot space are sets of three •white, domed, nonreflective markers and one of the reflector type. The opp'osits side of the reflective marker flashes red to warn drivers traveling the wrong way on a freeway. On two-lane highways they glow yellow to mark the center line. The markers rise .65 inch above road surface, cause a ramble which alerts a sleepy of inattentive driver that he is changing lanes. Where snow removal equipment is used, the markers are set in drilled holes flush with the roadway. Photo at left shows how clearly the markers stand out in nighttime traffic on Interstate 80 near Vacaville. Calif. Uncle Sam's Ugly Crisis Negro Employment: Painful Problem By SALLY RYAN AP Business News Wiler NEW YORK (AP) - The heat and the airline strike are shriveling supplies of fruit and vegetables in the nation's supermarkets. Days of temperatures in the 90s and 100s have wilted lima beans in Wisconsin, burned peas in Minnesota, and cut the size of apricots and peaches in California and tomatoes in the middle Atlantic States. 'It has been rough on vegetables," a New York area supermarket-spokesman said. "There has been considerable damage to the crops east of the Mis- By AOSEPH E. MOHBAT WASHINGTON (AP)-What's the government done to open employment opportunities for Negroes? "There is no more ugly and urgent crisis facing this nation today than the economic security of Negro Americans. Negro unemployment is of disaster proportions." That was the consensus Of the •ecent White House Conference On Civil Rights. It called for sweeping action by government and business to ease one of the nation's most painful racial problems. At the same time, the Labor department reported that Negroes have gained substantial jround in employment over the jast decade. But it cautioned ;hat they might lose most of it in the next decade unless they won a bigger share of skilled and white-collar jobs. The federal government has moved on several fronts to combat not only the problem of jobless Negroes but also the equal- serious dilemma of Negroes employed below their levels of skill and education. Yet two years after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, no one is prepared to translate those federal effortt into meaningful figures of newly em- loyed — or better employed — Negroes. Here, nevertheless, is the cope of the federal effort: The 1964 act established an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and barged it with investigating omplaints of job discrimination ind securing voluntary com- iliance with nondiscrimination itandards by employers. Its authority was limited the irst year to companies or un- ons with 100 or more persons. WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba District Mississippi County, Arkansas.
