—THE' WEATHER May Weatker 1973-74 The winking mailman puzzles housewife By Abigail Van Buren at me, but I am a housewife and the nigh point of my day is when ner C ° mes ' He ' s a cheerfu] .

He's married, too. So far « s just an innocent flirtation, you might say. Now I feel things may get out of control, and I may be getting more involved than what's good for me because I find myself looking forward to his daily visits. Every once in a while he winks at me. How would you interpret a wink, Abby? Exactly what does it mean? And how can I find out if he is just a friendly mailman or if he has something more in mind? I don't want to make a fool of myself. Perhaps your male readers can tell me what a man means when he winks at a lady. LITTLE WHITE HOUSE DEAR LITTLE: Each man will have to interpret kit »w» wtak, bat tf I were you, I woaldm't uk him. [Maybe be has a »erv8iis twHckTl DEAR ABBY: I am engaged to be married to a divorced man who has grown children. We are both over 40. This will be my first marriage. The problem: He still wears his wedding band. I once asked him why, and he said because he has gained so much weight he can't get it off. I know it's true because be let me try to twist it off and I couldn't. Maybe- I'm childish, but I don't like to see that wedding ring on his finger. Would I be out of line to ask him to get rid of it even if he has to have a mechanic file it off? RING PROBLEM DEAR PROBLEM: Ask your (lance to have a Jeweler [sot a mechanic] remove the nag. Yoa would not be out «< line to request it. He'd be out ef line to refue. DEAR ABBY: I am only 22, and ray folks are pushing SO, so I won't have to worry about this for a few years yet, but I would like to pass this poem along for those older parents. [It was taped to my mother's bathroom mirror.] Also I want my parents to know that when they get old they can depend on me to be understanding and patient CARLM. "FOR FRIENDS OF THE AGED Blessed are they who understand my faltering step and palsied hand. Blessed are they who know that my ears today must strain to catch the things they toy. Blessed are they who seem to know that my eyes are dim and my wits are slow. Blessed are they who looked away when col fee spilled at the table today. Blessed are they with a cheery smile who stop to chat, for a little white. Blessed are they who never say 'you've told that story twice today.' Blessed are they who Ipioio the ways to bring bock memories of yesterdays. Blessed are they who make it known that I'm loved, respected and not alone. Blessed are {hey uho know I'm at a toss to find the strength to carry the Cross. Blessed are those who ease the days on my journey Home in loving ways." DEAR ABBY: When my husband and 1 and our children are invited to someone's home for supper, I always ask if they plan to serve the kids the same dinner as they serve the grownups. The reason is that some people will serve steaks for the grownups, and give the kids hamburgers. I feel that if my children are not going to get what the grownups get I would just as soon feed them a good dinner and leave them home. ! have been criticized for my attitude, but I happen to believe I am right. What do you think? ANONYMOUS DEAR ANONYMOUS: Most children prefer hamburger* to steak anyway, ••* regardless, it's po«r mauen t» ask a hostess what she iatends to serve.

A number of years ago, and quite by accident, I was introduced to the ritual of special "athletic diets" by a football coach who talked to me about the possibilities of feeding royal jelly to enhance his team's performance. Happily, I was able to save the school's endowment fund quite a bit of money—royal jelly is expensive—by telling the coach that the only known function of royal jelly is to feminize bees, and that its effect in man (feminizing or otherwise) is unknown. As a result of this introduction, however, I began to collect other coaches' nutritional formulas for athletic success, and found: swimming teams that were forbidden to drink water (because "they would become waterlogged"); skiers thinned down to the point of emaciation; football players who fasted to the edge of weakness before the big game, and wrestlers who fattened themselves to a point just below the' allowable level for their class. I found that many coaches filled their athletes with wheat germ oil, yeast, tiger's milk, vitamins and an endless host of other "nutritional miracles." From my investigations, one rule seems to hold true: when a sport has become specialized, with victory as the goal, bizarre diets are not too far behind. Yet what do we really know about nutrition for athletes? Almost any real exercise will work up a good sweat, and all the evidence shows that the ideal way to make it up is for the athlete to take in water as he goes along—not massive, but frequent amounts of cool, not cold, water. This prevents dehydration. As for salt, if it suddenly becomes very hot or if exercise is extremely strenuous, it is better for the athlete to drink an electrolyte- containing drink or to put more salt on his food than it is to swallow salt tablets, which may cause cramps and vomiting. What about the caloric cost of such exercise? For young men, the overall calorie requirement may vary from 3,000 to more than 6,000 calories per day. For a 150-pound man, volley ball will use up 3.5 calories a minute, cross-country running— 1W2 calories a minute; and rowing at top speed may reach 20 calories per minute. We have found that athletes who require the greatest daily calorie intake are those who are training for long-distance running events—even slightly built boys may requite over 6,000 calories. (By contrast, beefy football players, during the season, rarely need more than 4,500.) Careful and prolonged studies show that, contrary to popular belief, vigorous sports do not increase the need for protein. Our muscles run on fats and sugars, and, if anything, they tend to hang on to their protein a little better if they are exercised. Thus, any balanced diet will do. Where efforts of long duration are required, burning predominately carbohydrates seems desirable. You produce more calories (about 10 per sent more) when you burn carbohydrates than when you burn protein or fat. It's still true that one gram of carbohydrate yields 4 calories, one gram of protein 4 also, and one gram of fat 9. But in running or skiing or swimming for a long time, your breathing is what limits you. and carbohydrates make the best possible use of the oxygen you take in. It does make a difference how these calories are distributed in meals, however. Athletes feel better if they are not hit with three enormous meals each day, but have several smaller ones. And it's better to allow for complete digestion of the last meal before a contest-that usually means three to four hours. Liquid diets, or meals that are predominantly carbohydrate, can be digested faster. Lastly, there is no convincing evidence that large supplements of vitamins, over and above the recommended daily allowance, will improve your performance. Vitamin A, vitamin C, the B vitamins and vitamki E have all been suggested at various times, but athletes appear to need no more of them than anyone else. What it all boils down to is that athletes need more food and fluid than persons who do not exercise. They need a well- balanced diet, but do not have especially high requirements for special vitamins or trace minerals (except transiently for salt). And, if they're engaged in prolonged endurance events, they seem to do better if the extra calories are high in carbohydrates, rather than protein and fat. Aside from that, the aspiring athlete should best heed the advice once given a young violinist who was lost in New York, and who asked a passerby how to get to Carnegie Hall. The answer: "Practice, .practice, practice." North Dakota: Partly cloudy and cooler Monday and Tuesday. Highs in upper 50s to lower GOs. Lows mostly in 30s. Variab's cloudiness and continued coo!

(AP) — Two Minnesota men overdue on a fishing trip were found unharmed Friday aboard their boat about five miles east of Silver Bay, Minn., Coast Guard officials said. Ed Ness, 60, and his son, Stanley, 21, both of Silver Bay, had been missing in their 36- foot fish tug since Thursday night, authorities said. A Coast Guard spokesman said a search was launched for the pair after they were reported overdue by Ness' wife. A Coast Guard plane was sent to northwestern Lake Superior to search for the men, and scanned the lake for about four hours Friday before the boat was spotted. The boat was headed back to port when it was spotted. Officials did not know why the boat failed to return home on schedule.
