By Abigail Van Buren [C IfTI by CMCM* TribM«-N. Y. NiW» int.. IK.1 DEAR ABBY: Recently, a date of mine kissed me in the ear and injured my eardrum. He caused a suction which blistered the eardrum and made it hemorrhage. Altho my hearing is not permanently impaired, I have spent a considerable amount of money seeing an ear specialist. I really think this fellow should pay for all the medical expense since he caused the damage, but since he didn't do . it intentionally, I suggested that he split the bill with me. He just laughed. I know there is no way I can force him. to pay, but under the circumstances, do you think I am being unreasonable in asking him to at least pay half? NO JOKE IN INDIANA DEAR NO JOKE: Certainly not! I've heard of girls paying thru the nose for a little thrill—but this IB ridiculous! DEAR ABBY: I wonder if any other woman has this problem? For years my husband complained about those ugly, woolly pajamas I wore every whiter. We bought an electric blanket recently, and I got rid of my warm winter sleepwear and bought myself some sexy nylon nighties, which pleased my husband to no end. I was happy, too, because I was warm and cozy under that electric blanket. Now, the problem: My husband says the electric blanket dries out his feet and makes his heels rough. He refuses to use it, except to warm up the bed before we get in. Both of us have sinus trouble and cannot sleep in a heated room. What's the solution? I don't want twin beds or bedrooms separate from each other. And if I go back to those ugly but warm pajamas my husband will think I'm being spiteful. ICE COLD KATIE DEAR KATIE: The electric blanket Is not drying oat your husband's feet. His skin is exceptionally dry In winter. Before bedtime, massage his feet with hand lotion. And if that doesn't eliminate the dryness, he'll be so touched with your eagerness to please him, m bet he lets yon sleep in a gunnysack! DEAR ABBY: I have a problem concerning the meals my mother has been making lately. First she sees something in the newspaper that looks good to her, and the next thing you know, we have it for supper. Last night she made something that looked like miniature submarines. Mom said that dish was called, "The Mistake that Became a Famous Success." Well, I don't know that much about food, but as far as I am concerned, it was still a "Mistake!" Now Mom says she is going to make something called "Stuffed Cabbage." It sounds terrible. If you have any ideas on how a 13-year-old boy can get his mother to cook plain meals and quit experimenting around, I would sure appreciate it! STARVING IN HOUSTON DEAR STARVING: I have yet to see a mother wb» could say no to her 13-year-old son who played his cards right. Just put your arms around her and give her a Itttte kiss on the neck, and say. "Mom, how about sticking to the plain old recipes?" [P. 8. Don't knock the stuffed cabbage until you've tried it!] Hints From Heloise A perfect pair of bridesmaids for a country wedding (left) with their embroidered bib fronts and mock petticoat skirts.

Pass Pass West Pass Pass - Opening lead—V 6 By Oswald & James Jacoby Remember the loser's song of, "Oh, how was I to know, that my finesses were all going wrong, :dear?" West had a bad hand and therefore he led a short suit in the hope of finding his partner's strength. South couldn't resist the impulse to clatter up with dummy s jack to take what he considered Na free finesse. Easts queen pickled the jack and from that point on South's three no-trump contract hap gone to. the place of no return. It was toujrh luck tftat he lost the club finesse and that East held the ace of spades but those things happen to everyone. This time it didn t have to happen. If South had just stopped to think before playing the jack of hearts he would have been sure of his contract against any division of the adverse cards. He would win the first trick with the king of hearts and try the club finesse. East would take his king and have no better return than a diamond. He couldn't clear the hearts because the ace-jack would be sitting there in dummy. South would win the diamond, run off his clubs and knock out the ace of spades to be sure of 10 tricks. Four, in clubs and two in each other suit. He wouldn't have won any finesses, but he would have won the rubber.| (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

"Then," he added, "I was introduced to the bridal head of an outstanding Fifth Avenue store. She saw my sketches and asked me to design a small collection for her.
