eow.-At.W- c by iblgtO van buren ft's Time for This Guy to Get a Job DEAR ABBY: John and I have been married for seven years and I think I have a, problem. When we were first married John decided that he wanted to go back to the university and get his B. A. degree, so I agreed to continue to • work and support us so he could John got his B A, then decided he wanted a Masters, so I agreed to continue to work until he got that Well, right after he got his Mas- teis he wanted his Ph D, so I agreed to continue working I've suppoited both of us for sev»n years now I will be 28 on my next birthday and would like to quit my job and ha\e a family while I'm still young enough. John could easily get a teaching position at the university and support us both, but he now says he's "out of the mood" of having a family, and he doesn't want'me to quit working. I am at the end of my .rope, and any comments would be-appreciated. DISTRESSED DEAR DISTRESSED: Part of the problem is your reluctance to look John in the eye and tell him W ' <i on your mind — or else why would you be HI. a j me? If necessary, practice in front of a mirror, and learn how : to say convincingly), "Look, Baby, I have bad it with the working. Let YOU support US for a change!" DEAR ABBY What do you think of a 24 year old "mai' who has gone with a girl for four years, tells her she is "perfect" for him, and then balks at giving her an engagement rmg' It's not the money because he is in business for himself and can well afford it He says an engagement ring is only a ' symbol," but if I am so insecure that I need a "symbol" to be assured of his love for me, he will give me one — on the condition that I don't tell anybody. I am about ready to throw in the towel. Can you help me? FED UP DEAR MED: Any "man who would offer a girl an engagement ring on the condition that she doesn't ten anyone", Is a little boy grown tall. And tell Junior that an engagement ring symbolizes that "THIS GHIL IS SPOKEN FOR" so why the big secret? DEAR ABBY: While driving 75 Years Ago —In Blytheville Mississippi County Health Unit's .house spray program is sen- eduled to get started this week, according to W R Summerville county's vector .control supervisor bpraying teams will operate in BIytheulle Manila, Osceola, Wilson and Dyess.

Mr and Mrs Ray Price were in Memphis Saturday to attend the Memphis State production 'Romeo and Juliet", in wnioh their son, Joe Ray,-participated. thru a small city jn '(instate New York I became ill and a doctor hospitalized me for IS days, I was in this semiprivate room, and had a "roommate". My first "roomie" was a 10-year-old kid who .watched TV around the clock. I was trapped in an oxygen tent and almost lost my mind. My next "roomie" was brought into my room at 3 a.m. He'd had a snootful and missed a curve at 70 miles per hour. His wife tore in, hysterical, and proceeded to chew him out. She called him some interesting names, immediately repented, then stood outside the door and cried for two hours while her mother gave her the old "I- told-you-so" routine. That afternoon about.500 rer latives came to visit him. At least a dozen of them pulled out-cigarets and were just about to 'light up when they were calmly told, by my room mate that the "guy in the other bed" was in an oxygen , tent! I kept expecting to be ' blown to bits,any minute. After they- left, his wife sat on his bed 'and cried for another two hours. By this time I was begging the niirses to put me in the morgue so I could get some rest. My next roomie was a man w.'ose wife adored him. She was there 16 hours a day, seven days a week and talked all the time. Somehow I got well enough to go home. Abby, please prir.t this. May be someone will remember it if (God forbid!) he ever;has to share a room in a hospital. THE LOSER 'Everybody has a problem. What's yours?

The rock 'n' roll period of the "God is dead" school has almost been silenced by . these new events. The death and decline of leading conservatives, the emergence of significant reforms from Vatican II . and the' hot'pursuit of laymen eager for an active role are just some of the reasons for dramatic change in the church. Several factors now should be clear to even those outside of the theological fray: The sharpest, most cutting criticism of the C h r i s t i a n church has come from deter- rr'ried, yet fait-iful, reformers firmly committed to the fello.Wr ship of Jesus Christ. They are Protestant and Roman Catholic. They Work freely across denominational lines and are in constant communication with each other. Their loyalty t o Christ has given them confidence and trust in in^'i o*'"r. This mood and emotion has not b- • 'fD't b-' . js an! Protestants for centuries! The exhortations, arguments and demands for renswal and reunion come from the m?st popular and articulate scholars in the church. Men like Michael Novak, Harvey Cox, Robert McAfee Brown and Hans Rung now dominate the theological scene. Conservatives in Catholicism and Protestantism have no vigorous champions and are left with the sarcastic humor of a William Buckley or the frowning throat . clearings of Cardinal Mclntyre. . Denominational loyalties and geographic localities no longer govern the boundaries of Christian, fellowship. Calvinist Paul Tournier of Geneva, Switzerland, has close and vital friendships in San Antonio, Tex. Hans Rung of Tubingen, Germany, moves easily in the discussions of 'Georgetown University, Washington, D. C., or those of Morningside Heights, N. Y. Albert Outler of Southern Methodist University discovers that his books are read by studious Jesuit in South America and Spain. Something is'going on and it Is much deeper and more profound than diplomatic greetings w religious get-well card*. o -by david poling- lt is nothing less than the forging of iron-clad bonds of •the oneness in.- Christ "that"is the clear direction of-the church in the 1970s and beyond. If the Christian community is on the threshold of some surprising new advance, it couldn't be a moment too soon. •'-" The last several years'have seen the final disarray of traditional projects, old - time evangelism and a ghastly amount of fault-finding. Some of the-brighter minds have realized that the spiritual problems -facing the church will only be 1 at-least a clear definition of what they are. So Rung remarked: "It is impossible to ignore - by william iQwrence, d.d.s. Lawrence DEAR DOCTOR: Can you please tell me what Paget's disease of the jaw is? What are the symptoms and what is the cure? ANSWER: Paget's disease is not specifically a disease of the jaw but rather of the entire body skeleton. When the jaws are involved, upper jaws are more of:en c'.'ected t.ian lowers, in women more than men, and in middle life or later. It is a slow, progressive disr ease, causing enlargement of alveolar bone - that supports the teeth. The growth pattern is irregular, sometimes involving both sides of the jaw, some. times one. ; . The nature 'of the disease is unknown and, although some .. few cases become malignant, it's not'considered to be a cancerous growth, and dofis not shorten life. Paget's disease is rare, of unknown origin and with no satisr .factory treatment. Cosmetic surgery is sometimes resorted to when marked disfigurement occurs, or when enlargement of the jaw interferes with proper seating of dentures. Bone growth can spread and loosen >teeth and in some cases seems to cause irregular bairr naclelike enlargement of roots. Diagnosis is difficult, sjnca other jaw diseases have similar ' symptoms are visible .in the bone often appear before any ' ymptoms 1 are visible .-in the rest of the. skeleton. These changes are sometimes found in routine- 'diagnostic x-rays of teeth. The X-ray picture of bone is said to present a "ctA- ton wool" appearance. But biopr . sy'may be necessary to confirm the : fact that the church has been to a great extent thrust out of modern life and history." " And Gutter adds: "Disbelief in traditional Christianity is now epidemic not merely among intelligensia'but the literate masses as well." In,other words, to great numbers of people, the church has not seemed to be with it, socially, intellectually — and alas, morally. 1 Too many congregations are trying te deal with the war in Vietnam, the tension in the ghettos and the uproar on campus as if this was , Iceland's problem.. (And believe it or not, there are several well - heeled conservative committees begging the organized church to stay away from the issues of black power, pov? erty, conscientious objectors, LSD and war and peace.) Well, the new.theologians and ' the . new laity do not believe that the course of Christian impact in the days ahead will be fulfilled in sewing groups, church'leaglie baseball and Sun-', day afternoon organ recitals. What has emerged is a totally new pattern of ministry, church life and Christian witness. It may result in a continual eccfe '. siastical uproar. But in this, case, that'is much better than being ignored. On the Pacific Island of Okinawa; bull battles bull in a bullfight. : ,' ,:'-, .....
