Get rid of Edwin or he'll get rid of you By Abigail Van Buren I* 1»71 by Chlcno Trlbune-N. Y. Ncwi S»nd., Int.] DEAR ABBY: I am 39, and Edwin is 40. We've been married for 19 years, and I'm not saying our marriage has been a bed of roses, but then, whose has? About a year ago Edwin tried to run me down with his car but I was too quick for him. Of course he. denied it—said the brakes didn't hold, but he was lying. A few months ago Edwin was on the roof fixing a leak and I was down below turning on the garden hose when he tried to drop a heavy metal tool box on my head. It missed me by a hair. I just don't know what he will pull next, Abby. I have heard rumors about him and a neighbor lady whose husband is gone for months at a time working on a ship. If Edwin wants to be rid of me, why doesn't he say so? If I didn't have 9 kids I would leave him tomorrow. SUSPICIOUS DEAR SUSPICIOUS: If you suspect Edwin is trying to get rid of you, beat him to the punch and get rid of HIM. If you can't afford a lawyer, see your local legal aid society. Better to be suspicious and alive, than the dead "victim" of an "accident." [P. S. If he asks you to go hunting, fishing, boating, or mountain climbing with him, don't go.] DEAR ABBY: During most of my childhood I had pale blond hair, but as I grew older it gradually turned to that "dishwater blond," so I started to bleach it in order to retain the same light blond color. At the time I met my husband I was a "blond," with the help of the beauty parlor. I never tried to deceive him. He knew, and had no objections. About a month before our marriage I took a good look at myself and decided the artificial blond hair was not becoming to me—also my hair was in sad shape from all the bleaching, so I dyed it back to my natural light brown color with gold highlights. Ever since, my husband has been throwing a fit because he wants me to be a blond again. So, Abby, I need some advice from you—and from your readers. Should I be a blond to please my husband, or should I stay the way I am to please myself? TO DYE OR NOT TO DYE DEAR TO: To thine own self be true. Retain your natural color and explain that nothing is forever. And tell him that when he loses HIS thatch you'll not love him less. P. S. Buy a smartly styled blond wig for those occasions when he gets blond-hungry. DEAR ABBY: I always read your column first for two,, reasons. First, because it is different every day, whereas the news is always the same. Politics, war, crime, etc. And second because it shows us what a motley crowd we human beings are., . , • "For "example, you recently had. a letter from a woman commenting about a previous letter concerning sickness in old age. She believed that sickness in old age is punishment for sins committed in younger days. That's like believing, as they did in the early Christian era, that people with mental illness were possessed of the devil. Then today you told somebody that people who leave their TV sets on when friends called are justified if the callers dropped in unexpected. If you are right, what has happened to the old idea of friendliness? I can't think of a TV program that is more important than having an old friend drop in to pay me a visit. It's the folks who are called upon who are honored. We are always pleased when unexpected company drops in. Yes, we human beings are a motley crowd. ONE OF THEM Fiancee Of Paul Koppen MR. AND MRS.
