Page Fourteen - BlythevHJe (Ark.) Courier News - Friday, April 14, tMT 'Forget It' DEAR ABBY: While I was out of town recently, my husband accompanied a very attractive friend of ours to a dinner party. (Her husband was also out of the city.) Upon questioning him, he told me he took her home and went in with her after midnight and had a drink. I have not drawn a happy brea'h since. Altho I don't think anything serious happened, it could have, as both this woman and my husband are very physically attractive. Now I am uncomfortable in this woman's presence. I feel she is smirking, and knows something I don't know. We are constantly thrown together, and after being friends for years I have actually developed a dislike for her. I keep imagining there is something between her and my husband. When I mention it to my husband he says I am "foolish." How can I get this thing out of my mind, Abby? It is eating my heart out. MISERABLE DEAR MISERABLE: Your "misery" is a classic example of what imagination can do. This may sound like a preposterous oversimplification, but I can give you two magic words which will solve your problem. "FORGET IT!" If you nag your husband, or show your contempt for the lady, you will tempt your husband and this woman to join forces against a common "enemy." YOU! Say nothing, ask no questions, and be your old sWeet self. DEAR ABBY: I answered 6n "ad" in a magazine for information about joining a flower club. All I wanted was information about joining, but before I knew it, they started sending me all k i n d s of seeds. I didn't want these seeds and did not order any seeds, so I just put them aside. I may have even thrown some away. Now I am getting letters from this flower club telling me that if I don't either send them the money er the seeds they are going to sue me. Abby, 1 am worried sick. Can they sue me? For God's sakes, help me! I have six children and no money to go to court Is light this thing. CAN'T SLEKP DEAR CAN'T: Throw their letters in the waste basket. No one is obligated to pay for — or RETURN — anything that is sent to him unsolicited. DEAR ABBY: One day while cleaning the living room, I came across an unfinished letter .my daughter was writing her girl friend. It was hidden behind the sofa cushion. Here is what I read: "Dear B—, This afternoon Mr. R. came over. He's Mom's and Dad's best friend. Mom was out. He hung around and hung around Finally he pulled me closer and gave me a real passionate kiss right on the lips. I told him he'd better leave, but Kiddo, was I scared. I'll never tell my folks as it would break up a beautiful friendship." Needless to say, Abby, I cooled the friendship quickly. With "friends" like that, who needs enemies? I am glad I read that letter as there are some things a daughter won't tell regardless of her relationship with her mother. You say you are against "snooping." Do you still think I was— "WRONG, WRONG WRONG" DEAR WRONG: You were cleaning your living room, not "snooping," when you came across your daughter's letter. There's a difference. And in this case, your daughter could hardly charge you with mistrust or prying. You did what came naturally and your daughter knows it. The Woman's Society of Christian Service met last week at the church for a business and study meeting. Mrs. Claude Crain opened the meeting with p r a y e r a f t e r which Mrs. Olive Holmes presented the final session on the study, "Christian Being and Doing." There were 14 members present.

By EDDY GILMORE LONDON (AP) - Eighteen- year-old Prince Charles is subduing the persistent comment that Britain's royal family is uninterested in the arts. It was seldom bruited about publicly, but often — usually in arty, arty circles — one heard such acid remarks as: "Music? Why, my dear, the queen's favorite music is Housewives Choice."

Why, my dear, they're no more interested in serious painting than I am in comic strips." "Literature? Why, my dear chap, everyone knows their interest goes no deeper than James Bond." Now Prince Charles' talents have stopped some of this talk. In public within the last few months he has sung, acted, played the trumpet and knocked off a bit of Mozart and Schumann and Benjamin Britten on the viola. A music master says he possesses perfect pitch. Prince Charles started slowly, first by mastering the drums, the bagpipe and then the electric guitar, even to the point of performing with a pop group at the palace. Then at Gordonstoun School in Scotland he played Macbeth, sang in a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance," became accomplished on the viola and said that he is fascinated by Shakespeare. As to the rumors that the roy- al family I> uninterested in culture — persons who know them well dismiss the rumors as wild exaggerations, but admit there may be a germ of truth in the gossip. The queen inherited one of the greatest art collections and can talk with interest and considerable knowledge about old masters. But, aside from her family and her job her main interest is in horses. Prince Philip's mind is scientific and mechanical. When it comes to the theater, the royal ladies are most often seen at cemedies and farces.
