F«|e Six - BIyttievllle (Ar|.) Courier N«m — Friday. M«reh H, 196T iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii»^ Lady Needs Help V an l/Juren tUjNinsbt maicau l»c.J DEAR ABBY: I am new in this community and have made many lovely new friends.'] met a lady at church and invited her to my home for coffee and cake. It was then that I discovered that she is either a thief or a kleptomaniac, for when I went into the kitchen for a moment and suddenly returned, I saw her open her large purse and drop my silver spoon and fork into it.' . You can't imagine how .shocked I was! Now I don not want to make a big issue of it by preferring charges against her, but I do want my silverware back as those pieces are sterling silver and are part of my set. Do I dare ask her to return them? And if so, how? I have told no one and do not intend to. MRS. NEWCOMER DEAR NEWCOMER: You are considerate, compassionate, and wise. Telephone the lady and tell her you saw her take your silverware and would appreciate her returning it. Then tell her that you know there are people who have a compulsion to take things, which ii an illness, so you "understand," will tell no one, and hope that she will seek professional help. DEAR ABBY: I am 14 years old and have always lived in a small town in South Carolina. Last summer my family and I spent our summer vacation in New York and Philadelphia. Down here in South Carolina everyone is friendly to everyone else and when you pass a person on the street you say, "Hi." This isn't just in our little town, but all over the south. If you do that up north, the looks and stares you gel, back show that northerners aren't used to it. Maybe I'm prejudiced, but I never really appreciated southern hospitality until I went north. I tliink the north is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. ' Anyone care to comment? SOUTHERN GIRL DEAR GIUL: You have a point about southern hospitality, but don't repeat a mistake some northerners make by judging a whole region by the actions and reactions of a few. DEAR ABBY: Three years ago I married a fine young woman from a "good" family. She was 22 and I was 26. We are both college graduates. We were "in love," al- tho she proposed to me, and pressured me into marrying her sooner than I had intended to. Shortly after marriage, I found her to be moody, stubborn, and quarrelsome. If you are guessing that we are not very happy, you are correct. At my insistence we sought help from our clergyman. He gave us some lectures on "trying harder," but it didn't help much. Then we went to a mar nage counselor, who suggested a trial separation. This my wife refused to do. She has been seeing a psychiatrist for five weeks now and she insists that she is "well" now, and all we need to save our marriage is a baby. Abby, I don't want a family until lam absolutely sure that this marriage will last. If I tell her, it might upset her more. What should 1 do?
