Spinoza once wrote, "It is the part of a wise man to feed himself.. . with the beauty of growing plants." Many would regard this as good advice. They have found in observing growing things, either wild or cultivated, an appreciation which provides satisfaction.

Basketball and back- rubs make her easy to love By Abigail Van Buren c 1*74 by Cftiew Trjbvne-N. Y. Nttn Syntf., IK. DEAR ABBY: Recently I met a guy who says he loves me. When I ask him why, he says it's because I have a pair of pro basketball season tickets and can pilot an airplane to take us to out-of-town games. He says it's also because I give fabulous backrubs. I care for him very much, but am wondering if this relationship can last. Strange as this seems, it's true. UPINTHF, AIR DEAR UP: You sound easy to love. The relationship should lost BS long as you can get those pro basketball tickets, can fly him to out-of-town games, and provide him with backrubs. DEAR ABBY: I have a 22-year-old sister who has been married a year and has a small baby. Her husband is a professional shoplifter. 1 le says he's been in the business for 20 years. I le rips off everything from a package of cigarettes to an S8.000 houseboat. He brags about it. She has a two-carat diamond and a houseful of furniture which he has obtained through shoplifting. It's unhelieveable what this man can pick up. I am worried about my sister. She lives in another state. When I saw her last 1 told her she was foolish to live with a man who might be sent to prison. She just laughed and said he is too smart to get caught, and besides all he could get is a S100 fine. Is she mentally sick? I am 28, married to a good man and have a fine family, and I am worried. Is there anything I can rlo? B'iG SISTKR DKAK SIS: Tell'your sister that she is mistaken if she thinks nil he can get is a S100 fine for grand larceny.

They have no children, so I don't know what they have to talk about. (She is siill unmarried.) My fiance says he doesn't mind her calling him because he appreciates knowing that she is okay. He is very good to me. but these calls from his "ex" every week irritate me. 1 would like your opinion. "R" DEAR ' 'R": In my opinion, your fiance appears to be a very kind and considerate man. He's not married yet. If his "e\" continues to call him. and he continues to "not mind" after he's married to you. write again, and I may have a different opinion.

Sheridan, a girl, Aug. 2. "New York has a bad name because of poor publicity. Most people have formed their opinions by listening to the comments of television personalities and from seeing movies about the city. They also read stories that are blown up out of all proportion to the facts. "fn Australia they were up on every kind of incident," Miss Allen goes on. "I was really surprised with such comments as 'you can't walk in Central Park'." In San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Honolulu, the image was pretty much the same — "New York is a dirty, polluted, noisy, dangerous, crime-ridden city," she was told by detractors. "And they all Clink Harlem is one big slum with everyone on drugs," says Miss Allen, who lost no time in setting them straight. "In San Francisco, where they complained' about New York's peep shows on 42nd Street, they have topless shows everywhere — ii, the financial district and the best restaurant areas. 1 told them that in New York one could at least avoid peep shows by not going to those areas." And she recalls having to laugh out loud when Californians commented about New York's pollution. After all, she had heard, that in Los Angeles the smog appears in a number of different colors. As a native New Yorker Miss Allen takes a great deal of pride in her city, and whenever she could set her message across, she told the good things about New York, and the people were surprised to learn of its wonderful museums, cultural centers, religious landmarks, movies, theatres and zoos. She gave them literature that told about the hotels, stores, rest- aurants, antiques shops, sports stadiums and Rockefeller Center. When people asked her whether it was hard to sell New York, she merely answered that she didn't need to — tourism is New York's second largest revenue producer. Local youth attend citizenship seminar Ingenious Kingdom by Henry and Rebecca Northen. The subtitle suggests that this book is about "the remarkable world of plants." The Northens as plant enthusiasts try to describe the hows and whys of "plant behavior." Such matters are the astonishing longevity of individual plants, the sophisticated means of reproduction, and the ability of plants to "know" when to bloom, germinate or grow dormant are part of the remarkable story told. Bizarre Plants by William A. Emboden. The plant world has its spectacular, grotesque or otherwise unusual examples. There is the rafflesia which has flowers the size of a washtub. Or the enchanter's nightshade which contains alkaloids potent enough to cause delirium or death. Or the plants that devour animals the size of birds and rodents. A nightmare-filled volume. The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins. An intriguing but highly controversial volume containing observations about unusual plant activity. Plants as lie detectors, plants and their response to music, the "emotions" of plants in response to suffering or attention are all part of what the author describes as the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and man. . Sunset Guide to Organic Gardening. One of many such volumes for those who love to grow plants, whether flower or vegetable. This one describes the organic way of using natural fertilizers and pest controls as well as compost. Give rooms a new "country look" with puff pillows! NOW! AdU ziax with I'L'FK 1'ILLOWS!

A late-late repast is certain to overdraw on your calorie allotment for the day. And your body cannot utilize the overage. Only about 400 calories per 100 pounds of body weight are used during 8 hours of sleep. In the daytime an active person burns up more calories in a half-hour than in a long night's sleep. Excess weight, as reducers know too well, results from unused calories. Albeit you may hear opinions to the contrary about the late snack. It is thought permissible in some quarters when a reducer claims, "Cm so hungry I can't sleep." But not in your quarter or mine. Raids on the refrigerator are a bad habit and a threat to successful reductions. A primary purpose of a sane reducing diet is to replace bad habits with good ones - not for just a night, but for a lifetime. Still, many reducers continue to have one- for-the-road. Otherwise, real or imagined misery ensues. So what's the answer? One comes from chewy, bulky carrot and celery strips. Another is to save fruit or a glass of skim milk from the evening meal. That way you do not break the calorie bank or a balanced nutrition plan. Nothing has been said about treating yourself with fudge cake or triple-decker sandwiches. You do. and you'll he sorry the moment you bed down. High-cal foods make plump beds for themselves-you know where.
