(ARK) STAI Likes Being Both Wife, Secretary ByG, C, THELENJr, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Lola Alken, a senator's aide who married the boss after more than 30 years as an employe says she's thriving in her dou« ble role as wife and administra* tive assistant, "This has been the most exciting time of my life," said Mrs, George D, Alken, approaching the first anniversary of her marriage to the veteran senator from Vermont, She began working for Aiken when he was Vermont governor in the late 1930s and joined his Washington staff when he entered the Senate in 1941, Despite his status as the Senate's ranking Republican, she always refers to him as "the governor," "The governor and I have an extraordinary married life," Mrs. Alken said in an interview, The 75-year-old Aiken, a widower, and his effervescent office aide, the former Lola Plerotti, about 55- she won't disclose her age,— were married June 30. Now the demands on her time are greater. "You have no idea how much," she said. "I come in at 6:45 a.m. Then there's a luncheon for Republican women. Later in the afternoon a tea in Georgetown. "Back to the office to tend the mail," she said. "Then off to the Hilton Hotel for a Republican dinner." Her snow-haired husband, in turn, has been spending more time out socially since marriage, Mrs. Aiken said. "The governor likes it because he's not going out alone any more," she said. Home for the Aikens in Washington is a one-bedroom apartment within walking distance of the Capitol. The Aikens have two houses in Vermont, one in her home town, Montpelier, and the other In his, Putney. Despite a quickened social life, Mrs. Alken is still wedded to her job, unpaid now, as her husband's administrative assistant. "It's my first love," she said. "I don't think I would be satisfied without it." Military Salute Origin of the military salute is obscure but-it-,may have been traced back to the Crusades era when it was accepted as a substitute for raising the hat or helmet.

Dear Helen: I am under treatment for my nerves, and no wonder. My husband gives me nothing but trouble. He never listens, won't help me with the children, drinks beer on weekends, and would rather flop on the couch and sleep than talk to me. He calls it nagging when I ask Mm to gett off his duff and do something. Is it any wonder the doctor gives me pills for my nerves? How can I show my husband he's driving me crazy?-NERVOUS WRECK Dear Wreck: Reading letters like yours—and I get so doggone MANY!—I of ten wonder: Did the marriage cause the nerves, or did the nerves cause the bad marriage? Before you blame your husband for ALL your troubles, put yourself In his place and imagine how it would be living with YOU. Perhaps he turns you off because if he tuned in to your complaints, he'd be writing, "Dear Helen: How can I show my wife she's driving me crazy?"—H. Dear Helen: My wife has been flirting with other men and keeps complaining that I don't give her enough shopping money. I try to reason with her, but she always brings up the untrue story about me making it with another girl who is seven years younger than she is. Is all this serious enough for a separation.—MAD AND CONFUSED Dear M and C: Ail this will certainly LEAD to a separation unless you two discuss, rather than accuse. Before you can patch up a marriage you must find the basic weaknesses, and I don't think you've even come close. Stop blaming and start talking civilized.- H. Dear Helen: I know you can airmail a letter to Vietnam for six cents, on a "space available" basis, but how about sending letters and packages toother overseas military post, I write to a Serviceman in Germany as well as to one in Tuiland.— POSTAGE POOH Dear P.P.: According to a new Methodist Churches fo Werge MRS, ALICE WALTERS Mrs, Alice Walters has been named manager of Rephan's Department Store here. She has been with the firm for 12 years. She and her husband, JamosE, Walters, reside at 1209 East Se* cond. They have three children, Sgt, Bill Walters in Vietnam; Jim Walters with IBM in Dallas and Beverly Walters who will graduate from OuachitaUniversi- ty this week, Mrs. Walters is a member and Sunday School teacher at First Christian Church. She is a past matron of the Eastern Star. Mrs. Walters expresses pamphlet being distributed by the Post Office Department, more than 75 percent of all mail to overseas Servicemen is now airlifted. This includes mail to all parts of the world where our men are stationed—not just to Vietnam. Your six-cent-stamped letter will probably go airmail all the way—from your home city, to the APO, and thence overseas, on a "space available" basis, but it may be somewhat delayed if aircraft are crowded. Packages weighing less than five pounds and not exceeding sixty inches in length and girth combined will be airmailed from APO to overseas installations at surface rates, if marked S.A.M, (Space Available Mail) in large letters. Parcels not exceeding 30 pounds and 60 combined inches will also be transported by air, upon payment of a fee of $1.00 in addition to the regular surface rate of postage. TTiese parcels must be marked with the large letters P.A.L. (Parcel Air lift). For further information, ask your postmaster. It's all set out in Section 127.151 of the Postal Manual.—H. P.S. The era of "total airmail" is not far away. First class mail between big cities in the United States is almost aj. ways airlifted, no mater what the stamp says. "By this time next year," says a post office official, "Our air-lift and air- taxi network should have expanded to accommodate almost 100 percent of first class mail."
