(Journal photos by June Barnum) Don't monkey around with chimp! By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I hope you won't laugh when you read this because I am sincere. I love all animals, but I am especially fascinated by chimpanzees. I go to the zoo and watch them for hours. I would like to own a chimp as a pet, but don't know where to buy one. How much would a young chimp cost? Are they hard to care for? What do they eat? Would I need a heated cage to keep one in Ohio? Any information you can give me on chimps would be greatly appreciated. LOVES CHIMPS DEAR LOVES: According to John Fletcher, head zoologist at the Como Park Zoo in St. Paul, Minn., chimps are presently in very short supply. When available for circuses, zoos or behavior research, a yoong chimp costs between $800 and Sl,«0». Dr. Fletcher informs me that a single chimp would not make a very good house pet. because when a chimp reaches sexual maturity he becomes frustrated, ill-tempered and unpredictable. So the word from here is, don't monkey around with chimps or you'll have nothing but problems. DEAR ABBY: Billy and I have been married a year. I am 20 and Billy is 22. We get along fine. The problem is Billy's mother, who lives near us. Billy gave her a key to our house so she can get in in case of an emergency or so if we go out of town, she can come in and water our plants. We have never had an emergency and we don't go out of town that much. Several times after we've gone to bed his mother has walked right into our bedroom without even knocking. She says she got "lonesome" or she had something to tell us. What she had to tell us could have waited until the next day. I didn't expect our honeymoon to last forever but I can assure you, it has ended because all I have on my mind is worrying that his mother will come walking in on us. I have told Billy to ask his mother for our housekey, but he says he doesn't want to hurt her feelings. I don't want to ask her for it because I don't want her mad at me. Can you help me? FRAIDY CAT DEAR CAT: Don't be afraW. You are entitled to your privacy, so if Billy refuses to ask his mother for the key, you ask her. Tell her if you leave town you'll give her the key. And if you can't do that, get a boH and chain for yoor bedroom door. ProMems? You'll feel better if yon get H off you cbest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. CS7M, L.A., Calif. Ml"4.

In the United States fancy patchworked, rhinestone- studded, embroidered, faded blue jeans costing from $50 to $500 are all the rage. Traditionalists, however, still cling to the much cheaper, baggy, "Farmer Brown" look. The French have adopted the American Wild West style. An American firm in Japan is selling more than a million pairs of jeans annually. "Fashion-conscious Japanese ENGAGED JANELLENEISESS and JOHN LEROY Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Neisess of 538 E.

Although American teenagers made "blue jeans" a household phrase, its origin. probably can be traced to Genoa, Italy, the National Geographic Society says. Centuries ago the .city specialized in weaving a heavy, twilled cotton cloth called genes. Genoa in French is Genes. French immigrants brought the cloth with them to America. The material, dyed blue, long had been a favorite fabric for making work clothes. Henry VIII once bought a large shipment of it for the British royal household. The word dungarees arrived from Dhunga, India, where denim work pants were fashioned in the 15 century from cloth woven in the French city of Mimes. Nimes was a textile center as early as the sixth century. A blue cotton cloth made there was called serge de Nimes. . Possibly Columbus used it for the sails of the Santa Maria. In about the 15th century, Englishmen imported the cloth and shortened the name. De Nimes, "of Nimes," became denim. The word Levis honors a Bavarian immigrant merchant named Levi Strauss who took denun to California during the Gold Rush. He tried to sell the forty-niners tough Nimes serge for tents, but they liked it even better for pants. Strauss set up a factory and bought a patented idea for reinforcing pockets by riveting the seams. His work clothes caught on so well that they soon were worn by cowboys and lumbermen as well as miners. Traditional denim cloth — called white-back — is made from heavy cotton with a twill weave. The warp, or lengthwise thread, is dyed indigo blue. Filler thread, or weft, remains unbleached. The product seemed practically indestructible and was ideal for the kind of life on the range described by one old timer: "Each day started before daylight when the cook yelled, 'Come and get it or I'll throw it in the creek!' and the cowboys crawled out of their suggans, or quilts. No one had tents. An old joke was the 'Tucson bed,' as the boys called it, made by lying on your stomach and covering that with your back." Many of the synthetics and new styles that have contributed to the worldwide, billion-dollar-a-year denim business are far removed from • yesterday's cattle drives. Old cowpokes would snort in disbelief at the lace trimmed denim skirts and sequined denim purses seen on the streets today. AAEN IN SERVICE STUART B. JORGENSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elroy K.

This is an efficient way to provide a nutritious meal because the leftover beef contains the same amount of high quality protein and other important nutrients as when first prepared. Cut the cooked beef in julienne strips for salad appeal. NELSON: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Michael S. Nelson, Underwood, a girl, May 7. DUPLICATE BRIDGE WINNERS North-South: 1. Betty and Wally Kjos • 2.
