I cant..see why he should always be starved. He lives at home. And he shouldnt be tired as he sleeps every chance he gets. And he shouUhrt be broke either as he has a job. He . comes over every Friday night and when I ask him to take me to a show, he can't because he's broke. When I suggest going for a walk, he says he's too tired. I don't understand why I love him,, but I do. What's wrong with .him? NITA DEAR NITA: He needs someone who will feed him, give him an allowance, and tuck him in- every night. (A mother.)

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 10 years and have three small children. We purchased.a thre'e - bedroom house last year, and .we are still in the process of furnishing it. Recently some friends Who live in another city came to visit us. Not having a guest room, we gave them our bedroom and we prepared to sleep in the family room on the couch that'makes into a double bed. It's in old wreck of a couch and not very comfortable. • Our guests insisted that they sleep on that old wreck of a bed and we stay in our own bedroom. They said they never five up their bedrown for guests and wouldn't permit anyone to do it for them. We felt just terrible, Atiby, for they wouldn't listen to reason. It is our policy to make our guests as comfortable as to refuse the accomodations we offered them? PERPLEXED DEAR PERPLEXED: If it's your policy to make your guests as "comfort-.. able" as possible, you should have let them sleep where they wanted to without a fuss. Many a guest (including this columnist) would feel much more "comfortable" standing up all night in a broom closet than displacing the host and hostess.

Many conditions come into the open that Brown alerted the operations officer, then quickly surveyed how many troop transport aircraft he had for the major move prompted by a suspected major assemblage of Viet Cong cadre and leaders. By the time the field colonel arrived in Saigon, Brown had aircraft ready to move a brigade of troops,'about 3,000 men. Brown is responsible for supervising logistical support for combat operations in South Vietnam. He is a Negro, and he feels the Negro ' has played a very important 'role in Vietnam, particularly when you contrast it with the role he played in Korea." "We had turncoats and defectors during the Korean conflict based in part on a fundamental lack of understanding and appreciation of why we were in Korea a degree of ignorance of the nature of communism and the Communist threat," he says. "This problem does not exist in Vietnam. The Negro soldier understands why he's here. He understands what this war is about and what is riding in the balance, and he's more motivated to work toward achievement of the desired outcome. "He has found here in Vietnam unlimited opportunity for individual achievement and ac- complishment. He can chart progress from day to day, ant! he can physically observe the fruits of his efforts. "I think the only tragedy is people at home don't fully understand and appreciate how critical this struggle is over here and that it does relate to their own security and well being. "It's not a question of getting out or staying in Vietnam. It's not that simple. If we got out tomorrow, we would have to begin the next day to fight elsewhere. We've got to meet the threat head on right here and meet it decisively."

"King has to look to other fields to maintain his stature hat he has achieved in the field )f human relations. Out'of sheer rustration he has turned to Vietnam." He suggests that lack of knowledge 'of me complexities if this conflict has driven King o irrational positions." "I think the outcome of the struggle will determine to a •real degree whether there will >e peace the rest of the centu- •y," Brown says. "I think nuclear war is out of the question.
