Husband Living Only in the Past DEAR ABBY: This is the second marriage for both Elmer and me. My first marriage was an unhappy one and ended in divorce. Elmer's first marriage (he claims) was happy, but his wife died. Do you think it's right for a husband to have pictures of his first wife all over the place? Every wall in every room in our house is covered with pictures of "her." They go all the way back to their marriage right up to pictures of her wake. Also, Elmer made me promise that when he dies I will ship his body back to where "she" is buried, so he can be buried next to "her." How should I take all this? SECOND PIDDLE DEAR SECOND: It's all right for a man to remember the past, but be doesn't have to live in H. Some wives do not object to having Number One's picture "all over the place," but if you do, your feelings should be considered. As for Elmer's wanting to be buried next to "her," tell him to put H In his will Mid dig wishes will be carried out as soon ai be is. DEAR ABBY: 1 am a 14- year-old girl and my problem is my mother, She won't let me have anyone over to the house unless it's in perfect order because she's afraid the kids might go home and tell their mothers that she is a poor housekeeper. Abby, this is silly because kids couldn't care less how the house looks. I know that I don't pay any attention to the housekeeping when I'm at someone's house visiting. And even if I did notice that a 'place was a mess I sure wouldn't go home and tell my mother. Please put this in your column. My mother never misses it. Thank you. NO COMPANY DEAR NO COMPANY: I never give advice to one who hasn't asked for it, but in your case I'll make an an exception and address this to your mother: There is nothing more reassuring to a mother than always to know where her daughter is — and with whom. You can Insure this feeling by making your daughter's friends welcome in your home anytime. Youngsters take little notice of "house 75 Ytorj Ago —In Blythevillt Red Childress and Montroe Holland have been named to the Class A all state basketball team, it was announced today.

In fact, the "perfect" house Is not nearly as inviting as the one that tacks "lived ia." DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I go to the home of friends for cocktails and dinner, I just hate to end up sitting by somebody else's husband. When the hostess starts saying, "Alice, you sit over here by Bill, and Jean, you will sit beside Harry," I always say, "I still enjoy sitting by my own husband, thank you. "Am I wrong? I would like your opinion. LIKES MY OWN DEAR LIKES: I think it Is simply a matter of good manners for guests to sit where the hostess seats them.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all of those people in Blyliieville •who made contributions, or, who bought tickets to the basketball games for the Ted Wahl Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund has already gone over the $500.00 mark and we deeply appreciate the fine response that we received from the school and community on this project. e We want to express our appreciation to all of our basketball fans for their excellent support during this past season. We believe that it lakes three things, in order to have a successful and winning season: Hard work by the boys, good coaching, and community support. We have had these three ingredients this year and we are most grateful to our fans'for their help and encouragement. D. B. Meador, Prin. Senior High School Brythevillc, Ark. Of Worldwide Publicity Once again Arkansas is receiving a fulsome portion of national and indeed worldwide publicity. It has made the Huntley- Brinkley program this week and reporters from the London Mirror and the British Broadcasting Corporation were reported to be down at the Cummins Prison Farm yesterday, peering into the open graves. Arkansans are shocked by the latest In a penal farm horror series, but, a good many of them tend to be defensive. After all, we say, this is not really a view of Arkansas, not really an indication of the nature of the sUte. It is something that happened in tin out-of-the-way place and we good people cannot be held responsible. But the fact is that Arkansans have known for generations that they had a tcrriblt penal system and bav« not both- ered to do anything about it. Since time beyond memory, the legislature each biennium has gloated over prison board reports, because the prison farms have shown large dollar profits and cost the taxpayers nothing. There was talk of beatings in the cotton fields to stimulate production, and rumors of worse, but no outrage was apparent among the general public. No prison reform committee was organized by concerned citizens , . . The kind of publicity Arkansas has been receiving is the kind you can't buy, and wouldn't want to if you were worth a billion. It makes rather laughable the concern of some Arkansans that the establishment of Dogpatch, USA, in north Arkansas would give the state a backward image .... —Baxter Bulletin (Mountain Home) Kleiner HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) It was jus' an average day on an average Hollywood lot. There was Ibis giant hand and then there was a golden ram's head spouting steam and then there was a problem with a mouse. Nothing unusual. I was wandering around 20th Century-Fox, trying to find something different to write about. But it was difficult, because nobody seems to have any imagination any more. First stop was the stage where director Harry Harris was shooting an episode of Land, of the Giants. This is a series which will probably be on next fall. They're shooting the eighth episode now — they want to get pretty far ahead, because this series may be the most expensive hour show ever filmed. It takes a lot of money and time to do the special effects needed. It's all about some astronauts who find themselves on a planet just like ours — except that the people are all giants. There was Gary Comyay and Kurt Kasznar, fleeing a giant, taking refuge in a gopher hole. And this giant hand came feeling around inside, as they scroonch- ed against its rocks. The hand was a mechanical thing, on a dolly. It took five men to work it — one pushed it, one wiggled it sideways, one made it go up and down and two were turning cranks that moved tlie fingers. Kasznar, one of the last actors I expected to see fleeing from a giant hand, said he was having fun in this wild series. "I took the series," he says, "because it was there and it was fun. And I've done everything else. Besides, I want to appeal to a new group — after "I'no Sound of Music', I seemed to have attracted a large following of nuns." Next stop was the Lost in Space set. I've come to expect wild things there, but this time it was pretty tame. Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) and Will (Bill Mumy) were in this room and there were three golden rams' heads on the wall. All of a sudden, the middle one began sending out clouds of steam and a sign lit up — "Tilt" — and another raai'i bead open- ed up and money poured out. Everyday stuff. I pushed on. Over at Peyton Place, they were In a hospital — nothing new there, certainly; I've always felt a good hospitalization Place folks. Insurance salesman could make a killing selling the Peyton The Doctor Says - by wayne g. brandstadt, m.d. - Q — I have arthritis of my spine. X rays show bone spurs pressing on the spinal nerves. Would infrared light help me or is there a better treatment? A — Bone spurs are found in most persons with arthritis of the spine. They cause no pain unless, as in your case, they press on a nerve. Heat in the form of infrared light, diathermy or an electric pad may give temporary relief but will not cure the condition. Most surgeons prefer a fusion-operation that will relieve the pressure on the nerve and prevent movement of the spine. This gives the surgeon a chance to put your spine in the best position and prevents crippling deformity. Q — I have a painful bone spur in my heel. Is it caused by a calcium deficiency? Will it get worse? What is the best HOOTS MAD "He always ploys it cozy—I wonder H he'd t» for Rocky. U Jtodrf Bwndsfadt treatment? A — The causative factors include arthritis, age (over 50), overweight and poorly fitte'd shoes. It is not caused by a calcium deficiency but ah accumulation of calcium at a point where the heel is subjected to continued trauma. It is not likely to grow larger unless the injury is repeated day after day. A similar spur in a location where it was not subjected to daily weight - bearing pressure could exist for years without you ever knowing you had it. Most victims can be made comfortable by removing as many of the causative factors as possible and by padding to take the pressure off the tender spot. Only rarely is it necessary to remove the spur surgically. When this is done the spur may form again if the factors that caused it in the first place have not been remedied. Q ,— Is aspergillbsis hereditary? One doctor told me that an infection must have existed before the onset of thjs disease. What did he mean? What is apical tuberculosis? A — Aspergillosis is an Infection with Aspergillus, a fungus found chiefly in birds. It is not hereditary. The Aspergillus •pores are Inhaled and cause a chronic bronchitis or pneumonia. Although the fungus is widespread it does not gain a foothold in the Jungs unless the tissues are weakened by some other disease, such M tuberculosis. The disease is treated with the antibiotic, amphoteri- cin B or by urgkal removal of the diseased portion of the lung. Apical tuberculosis is limited to the apt* or upper tip of a hug. Robert Hogan had just started work. He's a new boy on the show — a fine actor and this is his first big break. "I'm very happy about it," he said. "My wife and 1 are giggling a lot." He's playing a minister, and Diana Hyland will play his wife. Another new Peyton Place- ite is Michael Christian, playing Ed Nelson's troublesome young brother. Both Hogan and Christian, like others before them, hope that Peyton Place will be a springboard to bigger things. "Do you know anything about raising a mouse?" Hogan asked Explanation: Hogan bought a mouse for his son for Christmas. Steve is 6%, which is about the outer limits of mouse ownership. And Steve is worried that the mouse m a y be cold at night. He runs around on his wheel all night — Steve thinks this is to keep warni — and the wheel squeaks and keeps all the Hogans up. Steve wanted to oil the wheel, but he was afraid the mouse might eat the oil and get sick. The niouse's name is Brownie Doug Hogan and Steve didn't want Brownie Doug Hogan to get sick. Somebody suggested using mineral oil to lubricate the wheel. If Brownie Doug Hogan ate the mineral oil, then he might get lubricated, too, and a well - oiled mouse is a good thing for a boy to have. That's life on Hollywood sets. Routine. Blythevffle (Ark.) Courier New Monday, March 18,196? Page Six MRS.
