r *JUST LIKE OLD TIMES/" Your .LIwo (^entt vl/ortk — Please Law enforcement agencies for pome time liave been against . drinking and then taking; to the road. Statistics have been cited to show that the practice is in- volved in a iiijrli number of traffic accidents. Cries go up periodically that somelliinp should he done to curb the problem. What would you do? "/ soy stiffen the law. Make the penalties so doggone hard on 'em that they will quit the practic themselves. It ought to be stopped somehow." — A.Yf. Lilly, 409 S. Franklin, Blytheville. V, - "I don't see anything wrong with having a couple of beers and then driving home. Paying attention to your driving is the important thing, ft you feel that you shouldn't drive because of having too much to drink, toss your keys to the bartender."—Otis Jeffries, 901 May fair, Blythtville. Sloppy Housewife Please Take Heed! "Ptoplt that art drinking and driving en dangerous. If they art caught their /•cense should fee token away for at /east tix month*. Repeaters should be dealt with more sevtrtly." — Daisey Kelly, 412 N. 1st, DEAR ABBY: My wife is very careless about her appearance in the privacy of our home. She gets breakfast barefoot in her nightgown with her hair uncombed which is not very pretty. She knows better and can make herself strikingly beautiful if we're having guests or going out. It hurls to know she won't bother to make herself presentable for me. Divorce is out because of the children, but believe me, it's crossed my mind. 1 smrt off my day in anger and disgust, and my mind (and eye) have begun to roam. She reads your column, Abby, so maybe if you print this, she'll see it, recognize herself and take the hint. Thank you. HER HUSBAND DEAR HUSBAND: I'll print it, but don't expect miracles. When something as important as one's marriage is at stake, the man who waits for his wife to read something in a newspaper column, "recognize herself and take the hint" may need more help than his wife. Lav ; ' K- •' • " •>, man, lay it on the 1 i n e. Maybe she thinks YOU dont care how she looks. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I recently were guests for dinner at the home of some well-to-do friends. There were five couples altogether. Tiie hostess called us to the table with this remark, "Soup I have only for the gentlemen." For dessert they served only coffee and some small squares of commercially-baked cake. When I complained later to my host about the inadequate meal he replied, "In America it is customary for the guest to be satisfied with what the host offers him." I would like your opinion of such "hospitality." CONFUSED FROM LUGANO DEAR CONFUSED: To be "satisfied" with whatever is offered in the Way of hospitality is universal — not "American". I would be more critical of a "complaining guest" than an in. adequate dinner. I happen to believe that it is what's on the CHAIRS, not what's on the TABLE that makes a successful dinner party. DEAR ABBY: I am 52, but nobody takes me for a day over 40. After 27 years of marriage my husband decided he wanted a divorce, so I gave it to him. It was a blow to my pride, but the kids were all married and on their own, and I lived thru it. 75 Years Ago — In Blythevillt Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rosen- thai spent last week in Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Jerry L. Hearn announce the engagement of their daughter, Gladys Patricia, to James B. Westbrook of Blytheville. Plans are being made for a March wedding at the Presbyterian Church. Major activities in the Oscela social calendar last week were parties for bride elect Miss Evelyn Jean Pigg who will be married to Lt. Guy New- cornb of Blue Mountain, Miss., on Tuesday. Mr. and Mrs. Johnny White, Mr. and Mrs. Ben. Mac White and Mr. and Mrs. Newton Whitis were hosts to members of the University Club .Saturday night at the Hotel Noble for their monthly dance. Children love me ind pets adore me. There isn't a dog I can't make friends with. Older men find me fascinating. I can get any man over 70 by snapping my fingers, but I can't seem to attract a man my own age. I have money In the bank, nice clothes, and a steady income. To get to the point, I want a man. What's wrong with me? WANTS A MAN DEAR WANTS: The only thing "wrong" with a woman who wants a man is that everybody knows it — especially the men she wants. Be yourself, act your age and broaden your contact 1 ; if you want to change your luck. dressed envelope. DEAR ABBY:.

I 6ET BORED Ml TALKING A&OUTHOW BoeiNS YOU ARE,, David Poling On these cold winter clays, the Bowery Mission in New York becomes the world's largest coffee house. The mission's cold floors are filled with men who have come in out of the cold and are looking for a new slarl on Hie problems of life. For most of them, the big tiling is alcoholism. They have not, up to now, been able to live without liquor. The Bowery Mission, under the leadership of Herb Maynard, has made remarkable strides in the rehabilitation of men from all over America. Christian fellowship, regular sludy and worship — all Kiese are Hie successful ingredients lo Ihe return of thousands of men to their homes and families. But yon have to add one more factor — coffee. On every floor of the five- slory mission, coffee is served. A great part of the rehabilitation process involves the dynamics of group therapy as well as personal counseling. Coffee seems lo be Ihe natural beverage (hat has quietly overpowered the bottle of cheap wine. (I have noticed Ihis impact 01' coffee on many of the counseling centers that deal with -1- coholism as well as a part of the meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous.) Conversation and coffee are the soul brothers that have sustained the amazing growth of coffeehouses Hiat are being sponsored by churches across Ihe country. I really thought Ihis was a quick fad thai had no lasting power and would <sa thrown out with all Ihe other gimmicks that some churchmen use to get attention. It now appears that the coffeehouse program is a vital and creative ministry that is taken seriously by young people in the Christian church. Some of the most famous centers are described by John D. Perry Jr. in his book, "The Coffee House Ministry." They have such esoteric names as The Potter's House, Washing- Ion, D. C.; The Exit, St. Louis; The Quiet Place and T!ie Door, Chicago; The Unmuzzled Ox in Ithaca, N. V.; Balaam's Ass in Pennsylvania, The Speeklod Ax in Indiana and Intersection in San Francisco. Perry did a ipeeial itudy of on -by david poling- 6 the activities, staff, and sponsorship of many of these houses. He notes that there may be more than a thousand operating in the United States under church sponsors'.iip. The largest outreach thai these coffeehouses have is to teenagers and college students. Here is the real proving ground of Christian ideals and ideas in the world of secular values and goals. Guest poets, speakers, musicians, are invited to be a part of the scene in the general pursuit of life. When Perry talks about coffeehouse activities he says: "It differs sharply from the church supper, which draws only those who are willing to play the so- -by william Iqwrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence "Rinse your mouth with Slop when you get up in the morning and your breath will smell sweet all day." "Joe didn't give Brenda a tumble before she used Gag mouthwash, now she has to fight him off." "Chuck was very sad because his boss had BB (bad breath). But now that Mr. Big uses Vat, Chuck is very happy." Those of you who fail to recognize these corny parodies have never watched television. This year over $40 million worth of these messages have been driven home, and many of you must have heard and believed because you shelled out $158 million for moutlnyash. That's enough mouthwash to dissolve barnacles on the whole U. S. fleet. Fact is no mouthwash is potent enough to sweeten anyone's breath for more than a f e w minutes. If you've eaten onions •or garlic, or had a few martinis, or smoked a couple o f cigars or pipes of tobacco, or "Sure, we're SAT CD with sex and yioltnet—and ficnr a pack of cigarettes, rinsing with mouthwash will at best mask these odors for minutes only. In small print on every mouthwash bottle, it says, "... it gives temporary relief" and it's temporary, indeed. Persistent BB doesn't come from the mouth. It comes from lungs, stomach and esophagus, sinuses and tonsils, infected gums and lo a lesser extent, from decaying food lodged in broken-down teeth. But none of these conditions will respond to any mouthwash. Only expert medical and dental treatment can help. If you have BB and don't believe this, try a 20 - second rinse with your favorite mouthwash, wait 10 minutes, then breathe into your boss' face. You'll be looking for another job in shorter time than it took to rinse your mouth. Mouthwash can be a useful adjunct to good oral hygiene, which includes brushing after eating and regular visits to your dentist. Vigorous rinsing, forcing liquid through spaces between teeth, can help dislodge food particles that toothbrushing may not be able to touch. It may also help your morning- after mouth taste better so you can at least face the world momentarily feeling cleaner and brighter and free of sin. But if your social or financial success depends on using mouttiwash—forget it. Pleise tend your questieni •bout dental health to Dr. Uw- rence in c a r e of this piper. While he cannot answer each letter personally, letters of g i- enl interest, will be aaeweted hthifwlunu. cial niceties game — to smile all evening, lo engage no one in threatening conversation, and to reveal nothing personal or intimate which would embarrass the other party." Perry feels that the best asset of Hie coffeehouse to the church-— and the world — is that it is religiously neutral. "No one is forced, even by mental habit, to act religious in the coffeehouse. No one is forced by the surroundings to 'defend God.' Neutrality ..; is a powerful weapon. Used honestly, it can be a powerful sign that Christians needs not pull any punches." WORLD ALMANAC FACTS The Oral History Research Office, originated at Columbia University in 1948, collects on tape the memories and views of the great and near-great men of our time, notes The World Almanac.
