Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES. CUMBERLAND, MD., TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 1, 1955 NINE iiatrorth's Counsel ISy Mail t Editor's Note: While courting, man "laughed off" her past; Now in marriage he talks viciously of It. DEAR MARY HAWORTH: I am a woman with a very regrettable past. When my husband and I started courting, 1 was 24 and he 19. When he asked to marry me, I told him everything, but he insisted 1 was the only one for him, and that basically I was a wonderful woman, he knew: He said we would start life over together. At first his great love made amends, for 'my' past. We were constant companions and after he \vas inductejj into the Army he poured out his heart to me in letters, telling the 'land of home he wanted, etc. While overseas he was unfaithful to me, and I have forgiven him and almost forgotten. Now we have three wonderful children and he loves them dearly. But for the last five years my premarital past has become a hurt to his pride and his heart.... He calls me terrible names. Tells me to get out, that I am not fit to raise his children. Says that he never should have married me, that he was too young, to know he was doing; that he can't forgive me, hates my folks for letting me make such mistakes, etc. He Apologizes, Then Relapses Roy gets angry at any reminder of persons I knew before I met him: and I have made it a point to avoid^ them, and have tried to be an exemplary wife and mother. I have become a Christian. I teach Sunday School and take my children every Sunday. At times he will say I am on the right track, doing a good job, that I am just like he wants me. And he will ask my help, saying he wants io become a Christian, but- that his job makes it necessary for him to drink and.keep late hours. Then he won't listen to me-or read any good books. Time and again Roy asks my forgiveness, which is granted, and we make a new start. Promise From tht S. T. UTTIE "BEAUTIFUL HOME SHOP!" porsalana CENTERPIECES...

Do you know .of any relief for our problem? ' —E. D. Man's Got His Wires Crossed DEAR-E. D.:.The humble charitable spirit of your letter indicates that you are a Christian. And the sympathetic character of your wifely concern to be worthy (as it were) of marriage to.Roy shows that you don't comprehend how really good you- have .become. You have morally outgrown the regrettable, past, in your own right; and are well on the way to being a saint, in the troubled present, it seems to. me.- It is high.time that you and Roy understood something of the truth about the cause of his ugly rant in recent years. Your past is not the agitating factor. Actually, the trouble is, he is seeing life through jaundiced eyes, and mentally rehearsing all the evil he. can. imagine, .because of moral sickness he has brought upon himself—beginning with his adulterous' infidelity overseas. That's when morbidly' -jealous ran- cors started to cloud his reason. He gets vocally exercised about your past when down in the dumps about his hidden transgressions, I ;hink. That is, when he feels be;rayed by the weakness of his own: }ehavior; or when urgently beset! conflicting forces of emotional disorder-5 as furtive wrong-doing pulls him one way, and guilty conscience hauls him another way. Prayer Seems Likely Remedy Hoy defames you, making hideous misuse .of your artless confession to him years ago, when he darkly feels farthest off the beam of righteousness. His apologetic whines for forgiveness, and his occasional saying ;hat he wants to become a Christian, except that his job requires drinking, etc., shows, that he's not on good terms with himself. Just as his sporadic praise of your consistent goodness shows that he rias moments of seeing clearly how le has erred. I believe that relief for your problem must be sought via prayer. And my suggestion is to read and study Glenn Clark's book "God's Reach" (Macalaster Park publishers) —which lifts the mind from the problem-level of experience, up to the plane of absolute trust in the healing power of the Holy Spirit. On this plane of consciousness, miracles happen. —M. H. Mary Haworth counsels through her column, not by mall or personal interview. Write her in- care of The Evening Times.

Residents of the Oldtown area have been promised action on a stagnant water problem in a section of the C&O Canal after Ross F. Shaw called the problem to the attention of Rep: DeWitt S. Hyde. Rep. Hyde by letter, copies of which were sent to Shaw, referred Jie problem to Harry T. Thompson, associate superintendent of National Park Service. Thompson sent a small crew of nen to-investigate, and informed :he Congressman and Shaw that .hey found a-'heavy deposit of silt at a point where Ginneman's Run enters the canal. This silt deposit caused the.water in the canal to jack up and become stagnant. Minor and temporary corrections were made. Thompson then called attention :o the situation to •Ernest A. Vaughn, director of the Maryland Same and Inland Fish Commis-l »ion. The commission has .an agreement with the National Park Service, to use this section of thej canal as: a public fishing and recreational • facility. Under the erms of the agreement, it is noted .hat the area must be kept clean and free of stagnation." Vaughn wrote to Thompson and advised him that the deposit of silt could. probably be removed with little difficulty and he would lirect that the work would be done 'inmediately. Shaw said last night that the cold weather has remedied the odor from the stagnation of the water to some degree, and he hopes that by spring, the deposit* of silt will have been removed so the area will again be fresh and clean. in 1 1 n 1 1 n i M 1 1 1 i i n 1 1 n N 1 1 1 i i i : i M' :• H 1 1 1 \ \ \ i n 1 1 1 1 1 it 1 1 1 1 1 n <• .
