Joe isn't the jealous type, but I think ha carries it to the other extreme. We've been very friendly with a rather weird couple who live across the street from us. Pete is 59, short, fat, and very unattractive. Aggie is his third wife. She's cute and sexy, and about 25 years younger than Pete. She obviously married him for his money. Lately Pete is getting much too friendly with me. He puts his hands on me, and once made a direct proposition, which I turned down gracefully. It seems the four of us are spending more and more time together, during which time Pete tries to play "foot- sies" with me. Last night he even took his shoe off and practically had his foot in my lap. I loudly told him off, and my husband just laughed. Aggie doesn't care who Pete plays footsies with as long as it isn't her. (1 think she must have something else going for her.) Anyway, Pete suggested the four of us take a month's vacation together. I started making up excuses why we couldn't, but my husband was all for it. Is our marriage sick? I don't care to spend all that time with this couple. Why should my husband want to? And why shouldn't he be annoyed that another man makes passes at his wife? JOE'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: Your marriage IS sick, and so is Joe in the area of Itisband- h<M>d. A man who respects his wife and his marriage would not tolerate any monkey business, much less encourage it. Tell Joe that if he enjoys Pete's company, be should see him without you. And you could be right about Aggie's having something else going for her. Just make sure it's not Joe. also gave me his business card and wrote his home telephone number on tho back. He said that he goes out of town on short business trips frequently, which is probably why I haven't heard from him as yet. I have had my hand on the DEAR ABBY: Two weeks ago I met a very attractive eligible bachelor at a party. I am.also ."free" (divorced) and we seemed instantly attracted to each other. He asked me {or my telephone wum- ber and said he'd call me. He 75 Years Ago —In BlytheYille In a ceremony performed today at one o'clock in the afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Earl French, Miss Cherry Sue Barnes became the. bride of Edwin Holstead with the Rev. T. J. Richardson officiating. New officers of the Blytheville Junior Auxiliary and members' husbands were honored with a buffet dinner dance Saturday night at the Hotel Noble. Mrs. George Hubbard Jr. was general chairman for the affair. Members of the Variety Club held their monthly supper dance Saturday evening at the Jaycee building With Mr. and Mrs. BUI Stovall and Mrs. and Mr. Harold Thompson serving as hosts. Miss Nancy Hughes of Memphis spent the weekend here. telephone several times to call him, but 80 far I have been able to resist the temptation. Today I received an invitation to a very nice party for which I'll need an escort. Do I dare call him?'I KNOW he liked me, Abby. We just seemed to "elicit." If I call him to invite him to this party, do you think it will look like I am chasing him? TEMPTED DEAR TEMPTED: Yes. Don't call him. Most attractive, eligible males are also spoiled by women who pursue them. Don't join the pack. If the attraction was mniual, you'll be bearing from him. DEAR ABBY: I have a wonderful husband, but the trouble seems to be the girl he went with before he married me. She keeps sending him "Miss You" cards, birthday telegrams and Christmas card etc. And she signs everything, "Love." I have begged my husband! to please call up this old girl friend and tell her once and for all she should leave him alone, but he won't do it. He says he has never done any- thing to encourage her, anl he doesn't He, but I feel if hi really loved me he would d» something to put a stop to all this. I am 56 and he is 68 and we have been married 17 months. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: You would be wise to quit bugging your "wonderful" bus- band. He's right. He hai done nothing to encourage her, and by ignoring her he is discouraging .her in the best possible way. His old girl friend probably never enters his mind - until YOU bring her up. Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply write to Abby, Box 69700 Los Angeles, Cal., 90069 and enclose a stamped, self - addressed envelope. Blytbeville (Ark.)

Poling o n Religon (David Poling JERUSALEM (NBA) You think you know just about everything necessary for a visit to the Holy Lands. For a lifetime you have studied and discussed and preached and taught and argued over the Bible. Ill Sunday School and Vacation Bible School you did model villages and acted in gospel dramas. You may have seen the seals model of Jerusalem at Chautauqua, N. Y., and knew the location of the Jordan River and the strange Dead Sea. And what you didn't get from Bible commentaries and theological studies, there was always another copy of National Geographic to fill the information gap. But all the libraries and all the lectures and all the color slides in Christendom cannot and will not prepare you for the emotional impact that stuns you upon arrival in Israel. It's a total religious experience and no man dare say he is immune or unconscious of the power that resides in these sacred hills. George Bernard Shaw, surely unsurpassed in theater and in literature for his incessant criticism of religion and the church, was overwhelmed by this same emotion which caught him unprepared when he visited Palestine. Said he: "On this first hour you d o not improve. It gives you the feeling that here Christ lived) and grew up, and that here Mary bore him and reared him, and that there is no land on earth quite like it." The Easter season this year brought Christians to Jerusalem from every corner of the world—in spite of the Middle East war of last summer and the threats of conflict this spring. There was exchange of gunfire along the northern borders but this did not seem to , affect the purpose or determination of thousands of visitors to celebrate Easter in Jerusalem or to journey to Bethlehem or swim in the Dead Sea. The Israeli-Arab war is a con- itant topic and the solution is a daily speculation. The Christian community of Israel is in • good position to encourage the talks between Arab and Jew that, so far, have been off tht unofficial. __ -by dtivid poling - Each really needs the other. And Jordan, especially, has been hurt by the results of the June 5 war. Jordan also has one of the largest numbers of Arab Christians in the Middle East—a group that is particularly eager to use diplomatic techniques in place of napalm and guerilla raids. One of my Jordanian informants—an Arab Christian who -by William lawrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: Is It always apparent to the dentist when a tooth requires removal of the nerve? — MRS. C. H. ANSWER: No. There are so many referred aches and pains associated with teeth that have partial or total pulp (nerve) in- f e c t i o n that it's impossible sometimes to know for sure even which tooth is hurting. .Some years ago one of my teeth became sensitive and showed signs of pulpitis. I •couldn't tell which tooth it was; even which jaw it was in, upper or lower. And three dentists who examined me couldn't agree on which tooth was involved. Only when an abscess can be visualized on X ray, or when it can be clinically, demonstrated that decay has penetrated into the nerve chamber is it certain that root canal therapy (RCT) is the treatment of C 1HI fcy MA, IK. * "Same e/ection. year i< wowW fri fun to Jov«'(o molt* a tktiubttwuu ttu> 'iiuu oftin COOOgT choice. And even an exposed nerve can sometimes be treated successfully by ("capping") that is, by placing a special medicated, filling over the exposed nerve area. This is far simpler and less costly than RCT but its use depends on the judgment of the dentist. DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: If your answer is free, I would like to know whether it is necessary to have an abscessed tooth pulled? Will nature handle it? Or drugs? — MR. U. B. ANSWER: Unfortunately most dental diseases are not reversible and certainly not spontaneously reversible. Many can be arrested by proper treatment, but there are only two ways of treating an abscessed tooth: 1. Extraction. 2. RCT, that is, removing the nerve, draining the abscess, sterilizing the nerve canals and filling them. (And variations of this treatment.) Penicillin and other antibiotics can reduce swelling and temporarily mask symptoms, but infection cannot be permanently eliminated without first removing the cause, which is usually an infected nerve. Tooth abscesses occur from causes other than infected nerves, such as periodontal abr scesses, but these, too, do not spontaneously cure themselves. They must-be treated and the cause removed.

The old wounds, the historic hate, the name-calling, the threats — what are these but means to hurt our children? We are living now. We want tha good life and we can't have it alone. But together, yes, Arab and Jew, Christian and Hebrew, we must, and will, find a solution to this impasse." The most important result, religiously, of the June 5 w a i was the unifying of Jerusalem into one city, undivided. Now Moslems, Christians and Jews move freely to the holy s i t e I that are vital to their history. But the very openness of tha city and its meaning to these three major world religions indicate to some observers that Jerusalem must become a truly • international metropolis. N o t under . Israeli nor Jordanian control. Suggetions have already been made by Pope Paul VI, as well as figures in the World Council of Churches, it support this move. This- really sesms to be the only — and the rig'.it — solution. For no nation, victorious or defeated, can say to the world, "This ancient and holy place is burs to control or regulate." Jerusalem really belongs to all men and we must move to tlis means to guarantee such an international assurance. When you think about t h i j concept—an international city — you might well want to add some other locations that should belong to everybody. I mean, does the Suez Canal really belong to Egypt? Do we honestly think that the Panama Canal is forever our waterway between oceans? And then enlarge on this a bit. Who gets the moon? The people who are there first or the folks who saw it ! first? We have had enough, centuries where muscle and loud talk and armies ground out the final solutions—which are lasting only as long as the arrows or bullets or tanks could enforce the geographic arrangement.
