DEAR ABBY: I'm 25, happily married, and have never cheated on my wife. My problem: Occasionally 111 go to a topless bar with a few of my buddies. We have a few beers, watch the girls dance, and then we go home. (Honestly.) The girls do not come around and sit with the customers—they just dance on the stage. There is no flirting with the men. I've never met any of the girls who dance there, and I have no desire to. My wife knows I would never run around on her, but she gets very hurt and angry when I tell her I've been to a topless joint. I take her out often, and have invited her to come along to prove it's not the kind of place where the girls mingle with the men, but she won't come with me. I've even offered to take her to a place where the men take off their clothes, but she says she's not interested. • She's always been unhappy about the smallness of her bust, even though I've tried to convince her that I'm satisfied with her the way she is. She insists that I go to topless bars because I prefer big-busted girls. It's not true. Besides, some of the girls aren't any bigger than she is. Abby, is it wrong for a man to enjoy looking? ORDINARY GUY DEAR ORDINARY: No. In fact it's normal. Men (and women, too) have enjoyed viewing the human torso since the beginning of time. (Witness all the ancient nude sculpture and paintings in art museums.) Because your wife is self-conscious about her small bust, her resentment is understandable. Looking is not your problem. Talking is. DEAR ABBY: I refer to two letters that appeared in your column on the same day. One was from UNDERLOVED, complaining because her husband of 20 years had lost all interest in sex. The other was from PAID MY DUES—also married 20 years—complaining because her husband demanded too much sex. I didn't think much of your advice. You told them both to see a physician or a sex therapist, then you dismissed them with, "That's just another of life's inequities." In other words you are saying, "tough situation." Why didn't you put the two couples in touch with each other? LESTER IN OAKLAND DEAR LESTER: I never put a stranger in touch with another stranger. Some strangers are mighty strange, Lester. DEAR ABBY: Four years ago I attended a shower for a bride\_ I gave her a set of four very nice plastic placemats. The problem is she is still going with the same guy, but they aren't married yet. I was thinking about asking her to return the placemats because my daughter is getting married soon and she could use them. What is your advice? WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Forget it. The girl may marry the guy. If you feel left out and lonely, or wish you knew how to get people to like you, my new booklet, "How To Be Popular; You're Never Too Young or Too Old," ia for you. Send $1 along with a long, self-addressed, stamped 124 cents! envelope to Abby, 132 Lasky Drive, Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212.

I have never done this kind of work before and would like your advice as to the kind of sandpaper to use. I don't want to use a power sander, just a piece of sandpaper around a wooden block. A. — You don't say how much of the floor is showing, but if there is very much of it, you have scheduled quite a job for yourself. Sanding by hand can be tedious if the objective is to remove some or all of the old finish, but it certainly can be done. Use a heavy grade of paper for the first sanding, a medium for the second and a fine for the third. You can skip the heavy paper if there is very little finish to remove. Once satisfied with the result of the sanding, wipe with turpentine to remove all traces of grit. Then, to be doubly sure, go over the floor with a vacuum cleaner. After that, refinish with varnish or shellac if you want a glossy finish, with a penetrating sealer if you war.t a noh^gldss surface. Q. — I have an old cabinet that I want to refinish. It was last finished about 10 years ago with shellac. I now want to put on a polyurethane finish. Can this be applied right over the shellac after I sand it a little to get off the gloss? A. — No. While there is one type of shellac that will stand up under a polyurethane, the usual kind, which has not been formulated for such a purpose, may be damaged. A regular varnish should be used.

POLLY'S POINTERS Polly Cramer Use 'dry' suds on shades By Polly Cramer POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY — My white window shades are four years old and quite dirty but the last time I tried to wash such shades with soap and water I ruined them. Any suggestions? My second problem Is with stains left from tho baby wetting on my 50 percent cotton und 50 percent polyester bedspread. The stain was set before I washed the spread and nfter a couple of washings it still shows. I would appreciate some help. — MARY ANNE. DEAR MARY ANNE — 1 nm presuming your shades arc washable and not paper ones. Use an old sheet, shower curtain or so on to cover a table large enough to spread shade out. Put cup of soap or detergent in bowl and add just enough warm water to wet It. Whip with beater to make stiff "dry" sudd. Rinse with clean warm water. The method of procedure is to remove pull cord to wash separately and unroll shade flat on prepared table. Dust both sides with a clean cloth. Wash one section at a time starting at the top and sponge with the thick suds. Rinse with clean damp sponge or eloth, wipe dry and roll It up and continue to next section until entire shade is clean. Wash other side the same way. Hang shade back at window and pull it all the way down and leave until thoroughly dry. After pull cord Is washed and dry put it back on. Try sponging the urine stains with mixture of two tablespoons of ammonia in a cup of water. As they are set this may not work. So then try white vinegar and then wash in warm suds. Another suggested remedy is to sponge lightly with a quart o! warm water to which you have added one-half cup suit. — POLLY DEAR POLLY — A reader suggested using a small stapler In the kitchen to use for closing lunch bags, potato chip bags and so on and I am writing to urge readers NOT to use staples in any way connected with food. I am a medical secretary and know from experience that accidents can happen particularly with children who are the great nlbblers and openers of such packages. Perhaps gummed tape or twlsties (even they are slightly risky) would be better kitchen aids for such uses. — FRANCES. DEAR POLLY — Whenever I opened a bag of potato chips or any bagged food I could not refold the end tight enough so the contents stayed fresh. I started putting a spring type clothespin over the fold. This works quite well and I have bought a package of the small plastic ones to use just for this. — DONNA. DEAR POLLY — Myrtle and Aggie should use regular baking soda for removing coffee stains from cups. I have used it for years and it works. — LOURENFI. (NEWSPAPER ENTEUPH1SK ASSN.)
