M II M 0 raft Twelwi -Blythevffle '(Ark.) Courier Kew» - Monday, July tt, MM NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: The medical profession is unworried by a seasonal epidemic of ephelides affecting millions of | U.S. teen-agers. Ephelides arej caused by the sun — and most people call them freckles. Ever wonder how much you can get for damaged paper currency? Well, if three-fifths of a bill survives, you can redeem it for its full face value. If less than three-fifths but more than two-fifths, it's worth half its face value. If less tiian two- fifths remains, it is worthless except as a sourvenir. If all heart disease could be wiped out, it would increase life expectancy at birth by ony six years. There is still no medical miracle on the horizon that would enable the average man to live to be 100 years old. A majority of people publicly jeer at the idea that the stars foretell their fate, but - some 10 million Americans do have some faith in astrology. Quotable notables: "I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts." — actor OrsbVi Weles. Crows, widely regarded as pests, are also among a farmer's best friends. One crow, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, eats up to 19 bushels of grubs, cutworms and other crop-damaging insects each year. Members of the feminine crews who polish up Manhattan's skyscraper offices after everyone else goes iibme are no longer called charwomen. In the industry they are referred to as "claning ladies" or "building matrons." Air Force psychiatrists say their studies disclose that witty people are more likely to be creative. And that the person with a lively sense of humor is more stable emotionally and better able to withstand stress than the sourpuss. Suicide is almost twice as common among Siose over 45 as those between 25 and 34 years of age. Along with poor health, a chief cause among the elderly is: simply human loneliness. •niiinnngniBM^ Jb eor Jerk Can't Go On Forever! Van KJ (HcNanrM Ijndlcat* Inc.) nilDIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIUlnilll ..... NliiiillllBNIM^ DEAR ABBY: I have been married for six weeks to a wonderful man. I am 57 and he is 69. I have heard that some people are allergic to other people, and I would hate to think that it is true in my case, but every time my husband comes near me I start to jerk all over. It is strange how the muscles of my arms and legs and all over my body start to twitch and jerk. When I am not around him J do not jerk at all. We went together nearly three years and I didn't jerk then. I am satisfied with him as a husband and we get along fine, but all this jerking is making a nervous wreck of me. Can you tell me what is causing this? JERKING DEAR JERKING: If yon Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, July 18, the 199th day of 1966. There are 166 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history On this date in 1951, at to age of 37 Jersey Joe Walcott be bame the oldest fighter to win the world heavyweight cham pionship when he knocked out Ezzard Charles. On this date .In 1776, New Jersey declare! its independence from Grea Britain. In 1792, American naval hero John Paul Jones, died in pover ty in Paris. In 1920, the French conferred the Legion of Honor upon the entire town of Chateau-Thierry for action during World War I. , In 1942, Gen. Lewis Brereton was named chief of U.S. Air Forces in the Middle East. In 1946, Vito Mussolini, the nephew of the Italian dictator, was pardoned in Rome under the terms of a general political amnesty. Ten years ago — The U.S. Army imposed a curfew on 150,000 American soldiers stationed in West Germany to curb sometimes violent encounters between off-duty U.S. troops and German civilians. Five years ago — Pakistani President Mohammed A y u b Khan wound up an official eight- day visit to the United States. Ayub Khan had met first with President John F. Kennedy in Washington for three days. Afterwards he traveled to Texas to meet with Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Gettysburg to meet with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and to New York to visit U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammar- ikjold. One year ago—U.S. 1st Infantry Division troops, newly arrived in Viet Nam, came under msUined Viet Cong attack near the town of Bicn Hoa. U.S. casu- tUi were described as light. "jerk" only when yon are near your husband, his presence could be related to your jerking. Discuss it with your doctor. You can't go on jerking indefinitely. DEAR ABBY: What is a second wife, supposed to do when her mother-in-law drags out pictures of the first wife, who is now deceased, and I am told was not liked by the family when she was living? 1 am the second wife in this case, and after three years of being in this family (or am I?) I am getting a little sick of it. My husband doesn't enjoy it any more than I do, but he says, "She is my mother and I am not going to fight with her." What should I do? SECOND WIFE DEAR SECOND: Too bad you don't have a strong, protective husband, because that would be your only solution. However, you are not compelled to sit there and endure the agony. Either leave the room, or pull a paperback book out of your purse and ignore the goings- on about you. I'll admit, it's rather impolite, but it's an open and shut case of self- defense. DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a mother who would send her child to a birthday party with only ONE present when she knows the party is for a pair of twins? The "gift" is something like a "game" or a box of candy with a card inside saying, "FOR THE TWINS." I would like to see this answered in the paper. Thank you. MOTHER OF TWINS DEAR MOTHER: While it is not an earth - shaking social blunder, I suspect that each twin would prefer an individual gift. DEAR ABBY: Please print this for "ROOTS," who couldn't bear to move from the place where he had grown up: A friend of mind announced at the age of 75 that she was moving from an eastern city to the west with her daughter. All her friends said, "Why, Mrs. Jones, you can't leave a place where you have lived for 40 years. You'll never be happy. All your friends are here." My friend replied, "Well, when I have lived THERE for 40 years I'll have a lot more friends." She is now 95 years old and time has proved her right. ONE WHO KNOWS Problems?
