By FRANCES LEWINE Associated Press Writer ACCRA, Ghana (AP) - First Lady Pat Nixon, getting the jump on her husband, says the President has definitely decided to run for re-election. Mrs. Nixon made the disclosure Wednesday to reporters after her arrival for the second stop of her three-nation West African tour. Nixon said in a television interview last Sunday that he would announce his decision before Jan. 14, two days before the deadline for candidacies in the New Hampshire primary. Mrs. Nixon said her husband's re-election chances "are very good." Asked what the campaign might be like, she replied: "It's going to be whatever type the other side makes it. It might be easy and it might be very difficult because we don't know who's the candidate on the other side yet." Mrs. Nixon flew to Ghana from Liberia, where she headed the U.S. delegation to the inauguration of President Wil­ liam Tolbert. Prime Minister Kofia Busia praised her at a dinner in her honor Wednesday night for "excellence as an ambassador ,of good will." Mrs. Nixon spent much of the day fielding questions about American aid to Ghana, which was impoverished by the spending of President Kwame Nkrumah, now an exile in Guinea. Ghana received $246 million in U.S. aid during the 1971 fiscal year, and Mrs. Nixon commented at one point: "My husband is for an aid program and his administration is going to Personal Mention be working with Congress to get a decent bill." Busia, who met with Nixon in Washington last November, said Mrs. Nixon's visit came at "a time when we need • it most," since his country is facing "bold and difficult steps" to put its economy in order. The prime minister and other leaders expressed hope Wednesday that they could count on continued U.S. aid. The banquet was held in the garden of:the presidential mansion beside the ocean. The 176 guests had a cold buffet and watched a 50-member cultural troupe put on a spirited show of native dances. Abigail Van Buren [* im by CWcito Trilxnt-N. Y. Ntwt sn*., IK.] DEAR ABBY: My husband of 15 years has suddenly decided that marriage is a "trap," and he wants out. He wants his own apartment so he can come and go as he pleases. [Not divorced, mind you, he just wants to be free to do as he pleases.] A wise friend suggested a cheaper way. Give him the spare bedroom and let him do as he pleases. The idea appealed to my husband, and that is what he is doing now. This friend told me to let my husband have his flings and have a ball, and in time he will get tired of it and come back to me. In the meantime I should be pleasant and uncomplaining, and be a good mother to our two teen-agers. My problem: How can I endure the pain of seing him come and go as he pleases? Can you give me a few pointers on how to put up with this when my heart is aching? LONELY DEAR LONELY: Your friend sounds like she has shredded wheat where her brains should be. You have given up your role as a wife to become the "mother" of a teen-ager who has just discovered the opposite aez. What are you getting out of this arrangement? The privilege of keeping your husband's room clean, and washing his underwear? What if his "flings" last until he Is SOT And in the meantime, what kind of example is he setting for his children? Tell your husband we all make mistakes, and you made a beaut when you agreed to the spare room arrangement. And unless he is willing to go for counseling and try to repair your marriage, he can clear out, and you'll see him in court. DEAR ABBY: We had company for dinner, and served one of the guests a cocktail in a glass which had a crack in it. She said, "Oh, dear me?" Then she went into the kitchen and poured the drink down the sink, and asked for a "good" Mrs. Miller Returns Home Mrs. Myrtle Miller returned to her home in Estherville following several month's stay in a rest home at Dows and a stay with relatives at Dows.

PATRICIA NIXON I told her there was nothing wrong with that glass, and she said, "Well, if a glass has a crack in it, there are probably germs in the crack, and I wouldn't want to drink from a glass with germs in it." I asked her how germs could possibly survive the heat of an electric dishwasher, and she said, "I'm no scientist, but I don't want to take any chances." Abby, if I had been a guest I never would have embarrassed my hostess the way this woman embarrassed me. Is it true that germs can live in the crack of a glass which has been washed in an electric dishwasher? EMBARRASSED HOSTESS ' DEAR EMBARRASSED: The chances for germs surviving the heat of an electric dishwasher are practically nonexistent. And so were your guest's manners. It's a good policy, however, to toss out cracked glasses. And that goes for cracked dishes, too. DEAR ABBY: I am 15 years old and am in love with my teacher. He is 32 and married, and I know there is no hope for me, but I just can't help feeling the way I do about him. I did a couple of dumb things, like copying his picture out of the year book for art class, and I also told a couple of my friends how I felt about him. Well, it must have gotten back to him because now he avoids me, and won't even look my way. Before this, he was nice and friendly. What can I do, Abby? I have written him a dozen letters and torn them all up. Please help me. IN LOVE WITH MR. P. DEAR IN: Don't do anything. Apparently your actions have already caused your teacher some embarrassment. You can't help how you "feel," but you can help how you act. DAVID INGVALL Rings ted Man 90 Years Old RINGSTED- David Ingvall observed his 90th birthday Dec. 29.
