Kit. Dear"Ann Landers: My sister's husband passed away reca)|ly and I stood next to her at the wake in the mortuary to greet people and accept condolences. 1 was stunned by some of the things people asked. .Will you kindly tell me how she should have responded to these two questions and one statement; ,(1) Did your husband leave any insurance*? (2) Do you have any plans for your husband's suits and overcoat? My son is exactly your husband's size and he could sure use them. (3) Don't feel bad, honey. I'll bet you'll meet another man real soon and get married again. I await your response. — Klamath Falls Reader Dear Reader: My suggested responses are as follows: (1) Why would that be of any interest to you? (2) I haven't had time to think about such things. I hope you will forgive me. (3) Such an insensitive remark deserves nothing more than a long look — punctuated with silence. Dear Ann Landers: My husband was a "Food Inspector," too — although not quite as bad as the man iri Michigan. There's achancehis wife might cure him if She is willing to try my technique. It wbrked for me. Never get irito a discussion with your husband about any food he thinks doesn't smell "right" or look "right." Tlie minute he questions something, agree with him that it is a little "off." Throw it all out where it can't be retrieved. Then go fix fried eggs. After thdt, at the first sign of a wrinkled nose throw everything out immediately and prepare a peanut butter sandwiph. If he says he prefers eggs, tell him, "Sorry, dear, I need the eggs tomorrow morning for a cake I promised the church bake sale." Three such incidents and your "Food Inspector" won'the so fussy. He'll eat whatever you put in front of him. Mine does. Voice Of Experience In Silver Springs I Hi Yo Silver: Thanks for a neat solution. And now, please, tell us what to do if the fish is really a little "off" and he gets a bellyache? Dear Ann Landers: Recently you printed a letter signed' 'One Less In The Family," from a girl who said her brother died from eating the leaves of a house plant. She then listed several plants that wer^ "poisonous." Periodically that letter (and others like if) pop up. This is to let you know that the National Clearinghouse for Poison Control Centers receives reports from the various centers all over the country. Usually these reports are filleid out in the emergency rooms of hospitals. We believe we get a very good picture of what is happening. Not one death from eating ornamental shrubbei^y has been reported since 1970. Sincerely Yours — John J. Crotty, M.D., Director, Division of Poison Control (Dept. of HEW, Bethesda, Md.) Dear Dr. Crotty: Thank you'very much for giving me an opportunity to set the record straight. We all. get taken in once in a while and the face with egg on it is mine.

That stands for Bi- Drive Recreational All-Terrain Transport—whew! The little vehicle has a switch inside the cab which enables the driver to select regular or four-wheel drive; it's styled like a pickup, with camper accessories and seats for the pickup bed available — sounds like a nice compromise for wives who want styling and room and husbands who want an all-terrain vehicle for hunting and fishing trips.

By JOAN HANAUER UPl Television Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - The Henry Kissinger show goes ori the air Jan 13, but it isn't a question of David Brinkley bringing on Kissinger with a "He-e-e-r-'e's Henry," followed by the fbrmer Secretary of State doing a 10- minute monologue. As a matter of fact, there is less of Henry than meets the eye — that is, Kissinger appears more as contributor than star. And it is the wisdom, rather than the wit, of Henry Kissinger that is r explored. "Henry Kissinger; On the Record," in the 9:30-11, p.m. slot, concentrates on topic rather than personality and it is very timely — the main topic tinder consideration .is "Eurocom­ munism," the special brand of communism developing in the Western European countries such as Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. But is it a special brand? That is the question the show explores, with film clips, interviews by Garrick Ulley with Communist leaders, and conversations with Brinkley eliciting comments from Kissinger. The segments on Italy, where this week tlie political crisis may force the government to giVe key civil service posts to the Communists,- are particularly apt. Kissinger discusses what the Communist acquisition of power in Western European countries would mean, saying: "...I think the influence will be, first, that the priprities of that government will change. That is to say, less emphasis on defense and more emphasis on transforming a society. Less emphasis on close cooperation with the United States, more emphasis on a semi-neutralist position." As for its effect on NATO, Kissinger reminds his audience that European Communists are almost without exception critical of American foreign policy and he says, "It is difficult to see how the present degree of information-sharing and military cooperation could be continued with Communists having a significant share of governmental power." The program as a whole is a chilling look at the Cold War revisited, a reminder of past Communist i/niquities such as the Berlin Wall that raises questions about the reality of ' Eurocohimunism's "difference" from the Soviet brand. Waitresses at a local eatery, hard by a local motbl — which shall remain nameless at this time to prevent the destruction of its grass by thundering crowds of rubberneckers and autograph seekers—have been roiisted out at 3:30 a.m. recently to feed the cast and crews of the movie "Magic," shooting in Ukiah and Blue Lakes area. Stars, have entourages of hairdressers, chauffeurs, maids, and cooks, but apparently still need their morning sustenance. 3:30 a.m. seems like loyalty above and beyond the call of duty, so a Stayabed Slug salutes both movie people and restaurant employees f(lr*their devotion to the arts, Historical Society hears vineyard talk Re-entry day at Today's Almanac) colleg^e Jan. 28 ^ ' I y MendocinaCoUefie will hold welcome; 10 — 11 Sixty members of the society braved the stormy weather on Sunday, Jan. 8 to attend the luncheon and meeting at the Redwood Valley Grange Hall.

Bil Alvernaz took best dressed honors away from all the elegantljf, coiffed and couturec ladies in the place, but we all know he was merely trying to be hired on as a "Magic" extra, since the movie people were laving a soiree in the adjacent room.
