DEAR ABBY: When Attworhy and I went together I kept wanting to tell him I thought he should either bathe more often or use a deodorant, but I didn't want to hurt his feelings. We've been married a year, he still has the same problem, and I still don't know how to tell him. Now that winter is here I can't keep all the windows open. Once when a men's deodorant was being advertised on TV, I laughingly said, "Attworthy, you should try that." His back went up, and he said, "What for? I sit at a desk all day and I don't perspire. Besides, I bathe every week." I tried to tell him it wouldn't hurt to use it just to 'be "sure," but he blew up, so I changed the subject. How can I tell him, "Abby? It's getting worse. ATTWORTHY'sWlFE DEAR WIFE: Like this: "I love you, darling, but you are getting a little ripe for me. Everybody perspires, including you, and the odor of perspiration is offensive. Try tliis men's deodorant (have some in your hand when you make your speech). Use it for ME, if not for yourv self." And if he blows up, tell him to cool off in tiie bathtub. DEAR ABBY: A letter in your column really hit home with me, and I hope you will publish my letter as a tip-off to other mothers who were as naive as mine: A litUe girl signed "SQUASHED" wrote to you, complaining about overly-affeetionate relatives. If "SQUASHED is a girl, her problem might be more ser­ ious than you treated it. I am a grown woman now, but when I was about 8 years old I complained to my mother about an ''overly-affectionate" uncle. She laughed it off with, "O, don't be silly. Uncle loves you." To tiiis day my mother does not know that my "loving" uncle tried to climb into bed with me one night when he was visiting us, and I fled, terrified, to my older sister's room to safety. When I am a mother you can be sure I will keep an eye on relatives who get too "affectionate" with my children. GOOD MEMORY DEAR ABBY: My grand-daddy on my mother's side gave mom a brand new car. He told her it was for her use only and not to let daddy use it because daddy thinks he's a great auto mechanic and if he ever got his hands on that car he'd be tinkering with it in no time. Mom is being pestered to death. Do you think she should let daddy have a set of keys to her car? If she did and, granddaddy ever found out, there would be a war. CAR TROUBLE DEAR CAR: If your mother accepted the car with the understanding that she was not to let your daddy touch it, she should keep that promise. With all due respect to your granddaddy's generosity, gifts that could start a "war" should be neither offered nor accepted. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply, inclose a stamped self-addressed envelope Avritts Wed Fifty Years Mr. and Mrs. Charles Thomas Avritt will be married fifty years on Tuesday, November 29.

DEAR POU.Y - I am 72 years old, seven times a nieth- er, ;18 times a grandmother and six times a great grandmother, but I still know what is cooking, and of all the Christinas gifts that I received from my big family the certificate tor four trips to my favorite beauty salon (for the works) is near the top of the list. So, girls, whether it is Christmas, her birthday or some other special day don't just think of a shawl for great- grandmother. Give her a beauty lift and what a lift, as I know from experience.—M.S. DEAR GIRLS — and our masculine readers, too — M.S. is typical of many present- day grandmothers and I know her gift hint will be the answer to a real problem for many of you, -POLLY DEAR POLLY — While planning our Christmas gift for a nephew serving in Viet Nam, my husband suggested we send hfan two identical packages, one for him and the other for one of his buddies who might be forgotten. Perhaps other readers would like to do this for our boys. -A POLICEMAN'S-WIFE: DEAR POLLY — Three years ago the plastic holders on our TV trays broke as did Patricia's. My husband purchased the spring iype clamps lhat are used to hold brooms or other round-handled objects. He riveted them to the undersides of the tables or trays and now they are firm and will not crack. The rivets look like decorative buttons. -MRS. H.E.H.

New and Old Improves The Bird THANKSGIVING TURKEY — Roasts to a beautful golden-brown in a fine new pan that is shallow and has on adjustable rack and a non-stick lining.

The homecoming^ theme is "Evening In Paris." ;: Tickets are on sale at Waynt City business houses for P each,: both adults and students. - , ^ TEXICO THIS HOLIDAY time you might like to combine the new with the old. The new is one of those roasting pans with teflon lining that keeps drippings from sticking and helps you make fine gravy. If you are in the market for one of these non-stidc roasters, be sure to consider the kind that' GRANDMOTHER rather than the solid moist kind. And to make it properly, be sure to use a firm, non-spongy, homemade type of bread. This dressing is ideal for a holiday meal where everyone from Grandfather to the young ones sit around the family table. It's not too rich, not too highly seasoned. It's just utterly good eating. ROAST TURKEY WITH WATERS' is really shallow and that has an adjustable rack. We stress the shallow depth because we are convinced that it helps a bird to roast rather than steam. Now to the old — an absolutely wonderful recipe for turkey "filling" kindly given to us by a friend- It's called filling because the grandmther who many years ago brought the recipe from England, lived in a New Jersey town' that bordered on the Pennsylvania-German area. And when you have Pennsylvania Dutch neighbors, you're inclined to call stuffing "filling." The mixture is so simple — bread, butter, onion, salt and pepper. But what unadulterated and alluring flavor! Property made, this is a dry-type stuffing BREAD FILLING 1-% (1 pound) loaves of thinly sliced homemade-type bread ! (27 slives Including crusty ends) % cup butter 1-^ cups finely chopped onion 2 teaspoons salt Vi teaspoon pepper 12-pound turkey About 12 to 24 hours before you plan to prepare the turkey filling, spread the bread slices in a single layer over racks; they will just fit over the rack of a shallow roasting pan (15-% by 12 by 1-% inches) and 2 square cake racks. Allow the bread to stand at room temperature, uncovered, to dry thoroughly; turn once or twice to facilitate drying. When ready to stuff turkey, have a deep bowl of cold water ready and also a bowl of cold water ready and also a bowl to hold the bread after crushing. Dip 1 slice of the dry bread into the cold water for about 10 seconds; then hold the slice over the other bowl and use your hands to crush and crumble it so that you. have some pieces a little larger than a dime and some fine crumbs. Continue doing this with each slice of bread. Then saute the breadcrumbs, 1-3 at a time, as follows. In a 10-lnch skillet melt % cup of the butter and add % cup of the onion; cook gently until onion is soft and golden; add 1-3 •of the bread and cook, tossing lightly with a long-handled fork, for about 3 minutes. Turn into a large bowl. After all the bread has been sauteed, add salt and pepper and toss thoroughly and lightly without packing down. Spoon stuffing into neck and body cavity of turkey being carefid not to press it in too tightly. Rub turkey with soft butter and place on the adjustable rack of a shallow teflon-lined roasting pan (15-% by 12 by 1-5-8 inches). Roast according to your favorite method. A charivari and miscellaneous shower will be held in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Keele Saturday evening November 26 in honor of their daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Towns, who were married recently.
