'Good citizen' hates to squeal on policeman By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am in a dilemma of good neighbor relationship and good citizenship. One of our neighbors is a patrolman who constantly drives the patrol car into his driveway for hours. He keeps the loudspeaker very loud so he can hear it inside his house or while he is working in the yard or fixing another car parked next to the patrol car. The other neighbors also notice his constantly playing hooky, especially during the nights and weekends. They joke abou'. it. Since we live in a nice, quiet town with a population around 20,000, we want to keep a good neighbor relationship, we pretend seeing nothing. However, I just read in the paper the police department wants to transfer desk officers to patrol duty to cut down the town's costs. The police department claims they keep six patrols on the road at all times, therefore their overtime costs are tremendous. [According to the newspaper, the overtime charge totalled SiiO.OOO last year!] Knowing this. I feel that as a taxpayer and good citizen I should do something about it. But how can I do it without making any enemies? DEBATING DEAR DEBATING: Have a friend across town IN'OT another neighbor living near the patrolman | lip off the police department's intelligence division. Let the department satisfy ilsolf on (he patrolman's conduct. That way you can remain a "friendly" neighbor and get the job done. DEAR ABBY. Like "Burned Once," I know whal it's like to be married to an aging doctor who takes advantage of ''doctor vorship." When my doctor-husband was in his late 50s he had an affair with a young married woman in her 20s. According to him, it was all part of the "professional treatncnl" and her husband approved. Why a young woman with a young husband would want lo have amlhing to do with a man old enough to be her father is be-onci my comprehension. For the most part, the patients arc cither young divorcees looking for economic security, or bored housewives, looking for excitement. The M. D. is overwhelmed by their wiles-never mind that he looks even older when accompanied by them. BURNED SEVERAL TIMES DEAR BURNED: To such misguided medicos, I can only repeat, "l'h>sician. heal thyself!" CONFIDENTIAL TO "SELF-CONSCIOUS IN L.A.": Don't tonfusc "eliquet" with "good manners"—which is far more important. Etiqnet is more concerned with which fork to use. "Good manners" |as defined by Jonathan Swift) "is the art of making those people easy with whom we converse. Whoever makes the fewest people uneasy U the best bred in the company." Falls will once again collect Betty Crocker coupons during the months of March and April. The collection is part of a statewide Mrs. Jaycees' project which aids retarded children. Persons interested in helping the Mrs. Jaycees help the retarded will find coupon collection boxes in local grocery stores. DUPLICATE BRIDGE WINNERS 1. Nick Weyrens and Esther Spranger 2.

Could be you have a first class case of contact dermatitis, advises the Minnesota State Medical Association. Many of the items we come in contact with in our work, play and home are capable of causing allergic reactions. Cheap costume jewelry, which often has as its chief ingredient nickel sulfate, is a common culprit. Nickel-plated ear rings, watch bands and other such items frequently cause an allergic reaction. Additional objects which contain nickel or an alloy may include medallions, zippers, identification tags, hair pins, bobby pins, curlers, coins, pens, buckles, grips on garters and metal clips on slips. Potassium dichromate, found in tanned leather and in concrete has been found to cause allergic reaction in a substantial number of persons who wear leather items next to the skin. Rubber is a frequent cause of allergic contact dermatitis. Natural rubber itself is seldom a sensitizer; the various chemicals which are added to the rubber to preserve it and A Lovelier You THE NEATLY TURNED ANKLE By Mary Sue Miller Slimming the ankles happens in fast time, if you pet to work right away on the routines below: 1.

Shoes, boots, foundation garments, dress shields, adhesive to attach false eye lashes and baby panties are a few examples of these offenders.

The best cure is to remove the offending substance from contact with the skin.
