Blythwffle (Ark.) Courier Newi - Monday, April M, IMF - by Abigail Van Buren—— Now She Complains Of Mate's 'Cussing' DEAR ABBY: Even tho we've been married 40 years, I still am embarassed about the language Hal uses. Profanity is his second language. We go out a lot socially, and it is humiliating for me. Every other word is a cuss word. It's as natural for Hal as breathing, and I doubt that he is even aware of it half the time. Fortunately we don't have any children to imitate him. Old friends are used to it, but when we are with new acquaintances for the first time, they look at me as if to ask, "Is that husband of yours a mental case?" ; HAL'S WIFE ' DEAR WIFE: If you've been humiliated for 40 years and are only now wondering, what to do about it, if there's a mental case in your family I'm not so jure it's your husband. DEAR ABBY: Yesterday a woman called me on the phone and invited me to a farewell party she was giving for her son. I have never met the woman, but her son is a good friend of my son's. She boldly told me to bring enough bologna for 20 people! Do you think an invited guest should be expected to bring refreshments? She said she wasn't asking relatives to bring anything as she didn't think it would be right. I was also told that "everyone" was pitching in toward a going- away present for her son, so I shouldn't bring him a gift. I wonder if I should g» to this party? Is this the way a mother gives her son a farewell party? FLABBERGASTED DEAR FLABBERGASTED: The. mother is not giving a party — she's organizing one. Ask your son if his friendship with the guest of honor is worth all that "baloney." DEAR ABBY: In response to the "Sawbones" who had problems with bone - crushers who shook hands with him: The queen of England may have the solution: When she has several hundreds of hands to shake, she simply extends her whole hand — thumb folded in. She claims that even the most ethusiastic hand- shakers are unable ta injure her hand that way. MRS. R DEAR ABBY: I read your column in Stars and Stripes and it sure amazes me the way some folks bug you with their penny ante problems. Like the guy whose wife wears brush r o11e r s in her hair when she goes to bed. And that couple who just bought a new air conditioned station wagon with stereo, tinted glass and fancy accessories and planned to go on a 7,000 mile vacation trip with it. Their neighbors wanted to go along and just put in the gas. The big problem was, shouldn't they pay for more than just the gas? 0, brother! I wish we had those problems over here. We just got thru walking for 32 days. And for 28 of those days it rained day and night. Please print this; Abby, It might make your readers realize how small their problems are.

Shortly after publishing GI Joe King's plea for mail to cheer up his lonely buddies in Thailand, I received the following cable? "Please Abby, no more mail I am swamped with more letters than I can possibly distribute to guys in Southeast Asia. Wish I could personally: thank everyone. Also financially impossible as mail out of Thailand is not free. Please tell our readers how much we appreciate their tremendous generosity. Airman 2-C JOSEPH W. King.
