Erma Bombeok's AT WIT'S END High Food Prices People are always mourning the passing of the old general store, that wonderful meeting place in the old West where you could buy a chain saw and a dozen eggs, a length of calico or kerosene for the lamps. I've never been sure in my mind that it disappeared. As my husband and I put away the groceries the other day he said, "Where do you want the salt for the water softener?" "In the garage. The kids can lug it around to the side yard." "And the garden hose and the charcoal lighter?" "On the porch." "Hey, you got a lot of 'goodies' this week," he said, pulling out a pair of men's sandals. "I know. We were out of everything. Wanta put these bath towels on the dining room table? I'll run them back when What the song idn't tell you e movie will. OdeTo Bitty Joe Technicolor From Wainei Bros QA Wainer Communicalions Company we finish unpacking. But the prices," I added, "I don't know how big families afford to eat. Here, put these light- bulbs in the drawer. I did get a good buy on underwear this week — three for $4." "Did you check on the car seat that was in the ad?" "Yeah, but 1 think I can do better at another supermarket across town:" "Umm. . . This looks yummy, what is it?" "A bundt pan. Got that special coating on it so the cake won't stick. Makes your mouth water, doesn't it?" "Why candles? You know they're more expensive when they're out of season." "I know, but I just craved to see those green ones in the dining room." "I hope you got there early enough to get the plants while they were fresh." . "They were a little picked over, but I found a great dieffenbachia. In fact, I had Ralph divide them irito two pots so I can give mother one and use the other myself. I love a store that has a garden man. None of those prepackaged deals." "Incidentally," said my husband, "what's for lunch?" I shuffled through the greeting cards, _zippers, antifreeze, dark glasses, pots, pans, insecticide, paperbacks, and clothesline an'd finally said, "You wanta run down to the store and get some lunch meat? And don't get distracted by things we can't eat!" Courteous Service Is My Goal. Philip C. Vieux for County Attorney. Paid for by P. C. Vieux. —Adv. SociaLife MR. AND MRS. JAY D.

He plays with a different partner every week, both men and women, all kinds of people —,,old, young, divorced, etc. :;, I don't like being a jealous wife but that's exactly what I am.

We left on Friday. The following morning my brother-in-law was.killed in a car accident. I , The family didn't know how to get in touch with us. The police couldn't help.

My wife and I were heartsick to think we weren't around when we were needed. , So please, folks, leave your itinerary with someone, or phone a member of the family every couple days — just to check/ It costs very little and the peace of mind is well worth it. — No Longer Lost Dear N.L.: "Your letter is additional proof that the only thing we can count on in this life is the unexpected. In some instances there is no way of protecting ourselves, but when we CAN we should. Thanks for the reminder. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I need some information about blood transfusions. When a person needs a transfusion after surgery, is there any identification as to the race of the person who donated or sold the blood?
