MHI-ton was generally "sidcslimv." What is your reaction credited with milking sweeping to the fact that he was fired? "Actually, I think they should have given it more time. ' don't think that they had enough evidence yet. They should have investigated the situation further." — Mrs. Jerry Scrape, Dogwood Road, Blytheville. "Personally, I think he may have stumbled onto something that they didn't want him to know. They should have investigated further before they fired him." —Travis Mothershed, Rt. 3 Box 609, Blytheville.

We have been married for 16 years, and she's been just about everything you can name. Now she's joined a new church on the edge of town. Some man picks her up at 6 o'clock Sunday morning and she doesn't get home until noon on Monday. I asked her what kind of church lasted all day and night and she tells me they pray all day, then they go to the Deacon's house for bodily nourishment" and special prayers. After that they all go outside and commune with nature and meditate, and pray some more. Then they go somewhere for "communion and berry juice" (they don't drink tea or coffee), then someone drives her home. I went along with this for four Sunday, but now she has started to go on THURSDAYS, too What do you think? SUSPICIOUS DEAR SUSPICIOUS: You could easily solve the mystery by offering to go with her. •' DEAR ABBY: You said in your column that engaged •couples the engagement ring TOGETHER. Well, I beg to differ with you. My husband and I have been married for 22 years, and HE selected my engagement ring himself. I am of the opinion that if a young man doesn't know a young lady's likes and dislikes well enough to select a ring for her, he doesn't have any business marrying her. An engagement ring is a gift, and it's none of the ladys business how much the man paid for it. B. J. D. DEAR B. J. D.: Things have changed a lot in 22 years. If you ask a jeweler who sells engagement and wedding rings, I'll wager he will (ell you that he sells more rings to couples than to men. And it wouldn't surprise me one bit to learn that many a woman will shop alone first, and later bring the man in — to buy. DEAR ABBY: 1 have been keeping steady company with a goodlooking widow for a year now. She is 34 and has 15 Years Ago —In Blytheville In a 4 o'clock ceremony performed by the Rev.

The problem is .>r kids: About an hour is all I can take, then the kids start getting on my nerves. I never met a woman I like as much as this one, Abby, but those kids are too much! We could send them to camp during the summer, but I don't think I could stand them the rest of the year. Vhis woman says she loves me, and she's really too good to let go. So what should I do? She says she is not going to wait around much longer. IN DOUBT DEAR IN: You've got a package deal here.

To practically the last moment of his life, he was actively enjoying the events and people around him. A few days earlier, he had spoken lo the Four Chaplains Dinner in Philadelphia. H i s doctor had warned him that he was a walking case of pneumonia, that he needed rest and a more quiet pace. Not Uncle Dan. He had things to do and he went, to the hospital with a briefcase full and a busy telephone at his bedside. It does not surprise his family in the least that he died away from home. 1 often thought he would go down in an airplane- he, (lew more than two million miles averaging 60,000 miles these last, several years. His concerns were worldwide, his friends on every continent. So it was right that he should leave this world away from home. And Philadelphia had always 1) e e n the City o f Brotherly Love for him. People still find it hard to believe that he was 83. In the last six months alone his schedule was tailored to a man of 50, not 83. In July he had major surgery. August was get - well month and then 14 days to the Far East with his 20th, 'or was it 30th, visit with Generalissimo and Madame Chiang Kai - shek. In December he buried his sister in Oregon, in January married off a granddaughter in Pennsylvania and in between took a 10 - day cruise in the Caribbean (with secretary, so he could work on his 26th book). And all along the way were b o a rd meetings, preaching ' date, university appearances and time for a special lunch with a grandson or an evening with a daughter. It was just a great life! Full, turbulent and outward bound. Daniel A. Poling was known through so many vivid associations. Head of the Christian Endesver, in American and around the globe. Editor of t h « Christian Herald for almost 49 years. Pastor, preacher, author, part-time politician (he ran for governor of Ohio and mayor of Philadelphia). Army chaplain in two wars. Newspaper columnist war correspondent. A sponsor of an aniazing number of Christian •rguuzation that niched ud' -by david poling - assisted thousands of children, families and servicemen. The world was indeed his parish. He knew every president since MeKinley, He was close to Herbert Hoover, served Roosevelt and Truman on presidential commissions and felt that Lyndon Johnson was doing a pretty good job under impossible choices and would probably have voted all the way for Richard Nixon! His range of interests were as wide as America and Dan Poling defied labels, cliques, o r party definitions. When everyone was down on Bishop Pike, he remembered the brilliant pastorate that the California bishop had at the Catherdal of St. John the Divine. When people in Oregon were saying that Mark Hatfield was an incurable dove, hawk Poling said that Hatfield was probably the most outstanding statesman Oregon had produced in this century and deserved a seat in the Senate. When the Justice Department put Jimmy Hoffa in handcuffs, he agreed with William L o e b of New Hampshire that the dramatics had been overplayed for the sake of some public careers. He was blessed with lifelong friends; J. C. Penney, nearing 90; Denneth Latourette sf Yale and Oregon; Walter Judd from early China days; Sen. Frank Carlson from Kansas and the late Cardinal Spellman. To him it did not seem strange that Spellman should become one of his close associates in later years; they were both working out of New YoA; they were Interested in the same social anil political philosophy and they each pursued the Kingdom oi God as it was revealed to him. And when that happens, you're always out-warrt bound. (Rev. Poling it president of tha Christian Herald Assn.) -by williqm Iqwrence, d.ds. - Lawrence BEAR DR. LAWRENCE: My daughter, 2V'2, fell and hit her mouth on a railing. The glim over her front teeth was cut but didn't bleed much. I'd like to know if something like this could make her front teeth dark. What I'm more concera- ed about is if this could dim- age her permanent Ueth. ANSWER: Teeth eft en become dark after such injuries but, in itself, discoloration isn't important. It's a sign that the blood vessel in the tooth has hemorrhages and the nerve has died. This may occur immediately after the accident, or some weeks or months later. Even if not very handsome, dark teeth can be retained unless they become abscessed. Retained abscessed baby teeth can cause Injury to permanent teeth. Your dentist should make this evaluation. The things to look {or are looseness of the tooth and gum boils. If these develop the tooth is probably abscessed and should be. removed. Sometimes premature. loss of Injured baby teeth can be prevented by a visit to the .dentist as soon after the accident *s is reasonable. Loose teeth can be splinted and biting pressure reduced; sharp edges can be. smoothed; broken teeth can b* capped; lacerated gums can be sewed together; and sometimes ektracton becomes a preventive measure if retaining the broken tooth might cause further damage. DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: What is the cause of bad breath? My daughter is 4 pretty teen- ager iyno has regular dental care. The problem causes her much unhappiness. Could it be heir tonsils which were removed but have grown back? ANSWER: Even though bad breath was discussed in some detail recently, it's so common a complaint let's review its main causes. Usual cause of 8B in people who exercise reasonably good mouth care is not usually found in the mouth. It comes from chronic infections or conditions in areas that communicate with the mouth. In young people its common causes are infected tonsils, adenoids, sinusitis and, less commonly, stomach disorders. In older people it usually comes from excessive smoking and drinking, esophageal diver- ticulum, stomach disorders, chronic lung infections, chronic upper respiratory infections, gum infections, periodontal disease, and sometimes deep-furrowed tongue. And, in general, diet plays an important role. Aromatic foods and poor eating habits can cause bad breath. Please send your questions about denial health to Dr. Lawrence in cart of this paper. While he cannot answer each letter personally, letters of general interest will be answered In this column. « )M kr NW. **• r OW ^9fS, WwW-f JJJif ; (Ark.)
