She's an old maid of 33 and is about five foot ten and can't weigh a hundred pounds. And you never saw such get-ups as she wears! Off the shoulder peasant blouses and Mexican print skirts with six petticoats. She helps him fill up the cars* and writes up sales slips and I am sick of seeing her there every time I look out my window. (We live next door).

D E A R ABBY: I was the last person in the world who anyone thought would end up in a divorce court. I was a bride with a veil and a white dress and I promised to love, honor and cheri_sh and so did he, but we weren't married six weeks when my best girl friend told me my husband was trying to date up some of the girls where he worked, and he wasn't fussy either. He denies it, but these stories have upset me so much that I get cold and freeze up when he comes near me. He says if we can't be like we used to be there is no sense in staying married, so now we are getting- a divorce. I still, love him but I can't forgive him. DEAR BEA: With friends like this you don't need any enemies. A marriage counselor' (or . the clergyman who married you) should he consulted. DEAR ABBY: It was necessary for my husband to write a letter to his ex-wife. He 'started it with "Dear Mary." I objected because under the circumstances she is no, longer "dear" to him,' and he should have started it out with just plain "Mary." We've had a few heated words over this and would like to have your opinion HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Addressing his ex-wife as "Dear Mary" was only a formality and you should have thought nothing of it.

QtllGK WARDROBE CARE Tidy housewives might take a tip on clothes care from pretty Marlyn Putnam, wardrobe mistress of a current Broadway hit musical. It is her job to take care of the elaborate costumes of both star and chorus girls. Says she: "After each show I have to see that every costume looks like new. I must clean plumes, flowers and" wigs as -well as remove makeup stains and lipstick spots f r o m dresses, furs and even the pastel satin dancing shoes. .'/I've found an easy way to do it. I simply spray the soiled areas with a new cleaning fluid and gently wipe away the spots. I choose a fluid in a spray can that is non-flammable and .contains no carbon-letrachlonde or other toxic ingredients, but leaves a fresh fragrance." Spot-cleaning clothes before hanging them in thn closet, immediately after wearing, is the secret of keeping a wardrobe always fresh, says Marlyn.

You'll feel cooler anc so will people who look at you Actually, a spray is a very effi cient way of applying fragranc at any time.
