TALLAHASSEE (UPD- Students can go to college in Florida on a credit card under a bill which becomes law July 1. Gov. Reubln Askew signed the bill over the protest of university system officials "as an expression of .his confidence in young people.*' It grants authority to state universities to accept credit cards for tuition, fees, goods and services. The bill HB 2692 also gives students the say, subject to a presidential veto, as to how their activity fees are spent. Presently, student govern* ment can recommend how the $34 per student activity fee la spent, but the new law gives student government the right to allocate it. University presidents, however can veto any item.

Salty Talk Salt has been valued sine, ancient timet; the word aal* ary. meaning "pertaining to sair, is derived from the fact that soldiers of the Roman Empire were paid either with lumps of salt or an allowance to buy salt, giving ui the expression that people "are not worth their saU*^ \Brand New For Summer!!* The board of University Regents, Chancellor Robert Mautz and university presidents asked Askew to consider vetoing the measure. Their concern, they said, Is that it shifts the responsibility for the administration of student activity from the presidents to student government organizations "which are not legal entitles." How important is sex in marriage? By Abigail Van Buran G IWO BY CMcane YMs)sjBtoft> V* NSVS oWwe\# lag* DEAR ABBY: I've been dating a fellow [I'll call him David] for about three months. He 's been giving me a big rash. David Is one of the nicest fellows I've ever met. Re la a successful professional man, good-looking, Just the right age for me, treats me like a queen, and everyone who has met him thinks he'd be Ideal for me. The problem: David doesn't Use very well. To be perfect* ly honest, it's more serious than that. Whan he kisses me, nothing [but absolutely nothing!] happens. Abby, I 'm 18 and experienced [but I'm no tramp], and I am not an that difficult to turn on. Don't tell me to teach him. If he can't even turn me on, I'm not about to give him kissing lessons. What should I do? I hate to give him up because he la by far the most eligible man I've ever dated, except for Una one fault. ' How important do you think sex is in marriage? LIBRA DEAR LIBRA: Hew Importer* I tklak R Is doesn't ter. It's bow Important YOU think It Is that ceimts. Ne em can [or should) make that dedslsa for yes. List yew priorities la order of their Importance and you'll have the an* swer. DEAR ABBY: I am 38. My wife Is 38. We've been married for 18 years and have two children, ages IS and 10. Ten months ago, my wife got a telephone call at about 7:80 p. m. She talked for a tew minutes, and after she hung up she said a girl friend of hers was in town and she was going to drive over to see her for a while. I don't know why, but I didn't believe her, so I left the kids and followed her. I found the "girl friend" was a man I knew. When they recognised my car, they went in different directions. After my wife returned home, we had a few words, but there was no big scene. Since that night our marital relations have been very unsatisfactory. Either she doesn't feel well, she's too tired, too sleepy or it's, "Please, don't bother me." If she lets me touch her, she doesn't participate. Please answer before I do something foolish. FED UP IN OREGON DEAR FED: Either you dldat have enoagh wolds, or they weren't the right ones. Level with each ether.

If It's only a bad ease of the "gnlllles," that should be dealt wHb, An Infected wound doesn't Just heal up and dlaappear. It erupt* sooner or later. And the sooner the better. DEAR ABBY: You will probably think I am some kind of nut for writing about this problem, but I trust your judgment, and know you have ways of finding out such things, so here goes: Following a car accident and complications, my mother had her leg amputated about five years ago. Since then, she Insists that the leg she had amputated pains her constantly. Abby, I keep telling her it is all in her head because there is nothing there to hurt. She insists the pain is real. I am at a loss to understand how this can be so. Can it? FOOLISH QUESTION DEAR QUESTION: [No question Is foolish If It la sincere.] The "pain" about which your mother complains Is called "phantom pain," and It la very real Indeed. Obviously, It only seems to be In the amputated limb because the nerve endings at the point of amputation have "set up" those sensations. Your mother should tell her doctor. He may be able to correct the situation. The Civil Service Board of the City of Panama City Beach is presently accepting application for one part- time secretary and one full-time secretary.
