ABBY: I am 50 years old and have had my eye on this married man of 45 for more than 5 years. I have been married 24 years and my children are grown and married. My husband works nights and I get tired looking at the four walls practically all the time. About 3 years ago I called up this man to come and see me when I'm all alone. He's real nice looking and dresses up so nice and talks sweet, too. Well, at first he seemed to like me, and he'd come over about three times a week. Then all of a sudden he always had an excuse why he couldn't make it. He works at a garage and he would tell the guys to tell me he wasn't there when I called. I finally got so mad at him I called up his wife and told her all about us. She said, "You aren't the first one and you won't be the last" and hung up on me. I just can't forget this man, Abby. How can I get him back? .. CRAZY FOR HIM. DEAR CRAZY: You can't so you had better try to forget him. And quit calling him! You have too much free time, lady. If you don't like night TV, find a job to keep yourself busy, or you're apt to find yourself out on the street with no husband. DEAR ABBY: My sister-in- law was brought up in Boston and she says it is "bad taste" or at best "small-town- ish and provincial" to publish death notices reading "cherished daughter, beloved wife, or devoted husband, etc." She claims if the person was "cherished, beloved, ,or devoted" there is no reason to advertise it as strangers don't care what the family relationship was, and friends who know find such descriptions hilariously funny. What do you think? A READER IN CINCY DEAR READER: Your tlster-in-law must have a peculiar sense of humor. There ii nothing "hilariously funny" about a death not- ice in any language. DEAR ABBY: In answer to "Only Her Fiance" — who was annoyed because his girl friend suddenly came up with contact lenses: He thought as long as he didn't object to her wearing glasses she shouldn't have bothered with contacts. Her "sudden vanity" made him suspicious. Well, may I say that contact lenses are not worn only as a cosmetic aid? They act as a "girdle" to the eye and keep the vision from worsening as quickly as it would have without lenses. Before I got my contacts I had my glasses' prescription changed 3 times in 18 months. I've been wearing contacts for nearly 5 years and I haven't had the prescription changed once! And rny vision is far better now that it ever was with glasses.

Astrological * Forecast * By CABR01X RIGHTER By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer April 30 should prove to be j j,,g. And an interesting day in ttie lives emptiness of Arkansans. That's D-S Day, (small congregation at the, ap- ipropriate hour Sunday morn- or when the state begins to observe Daylight Saving Time. It would seem to be a simple matter to pull out the stem on your watch or twist the big nob on your alarm clock. The major point, however, is not how many Arkansans will advance their time pieces, but how many will not, through forgetfulness. Those who do remember will, you might say, step an hour into the future, and they will have no problems. For those who forget, however, it could mean chaos. For instance, think of all those who will be sneered at and scolded for reporting an hour late for work if they don't realize their mistake soon enough. Sympathy will be due the milkman wiio delivers milk after you've already had breakfast. What embarrassment it will for the banker who forgets o take into consideration the :ime element before closing r riday and must wait an hour jefore the time-controlled vault will open on Monday. Ministers will wonder if there's a fishing tournament going on when they face a would what a feeling of those churchgoers feel when they arrived as church was dismissing. For the most part, though, the transition from standard t» saving time is expected to b« tranqui, at least after the first day or two. Then for four months Arkansans will be able to enjoy-more daylight hours after they punch the time clock in the afternoon India's government recognizes only 15 of the 179 languages spoken by its citizens.
