Thursday, December 29. 1977 1IOPK (ARK ' STAR Bit Wants Parents Back Together By Abigail Van Buren 1977 by The Clveago Tribune N V News Synd Inc DEAR ABBY: I am a 13-year-old girl. Recently my parents were separated, and my father moved out of the house. Every Sunday he comes to visit us kids. (There are four of us. I am the oldest.) When he comes here, Mom goes out, and if Dad is still here when she returns, she goes right to her room and stays there until he leaves. Dad always asks how Mom is, if she's "happy," and how her health is. He really seems interested in her. After Dad leaves, Morn asks how Dad looked and what he said. Abby, I think they still love each other, and I would do anything to get them back together again, but I've been told to live my own life and to let them live theirs. How can I help? WANTS TO HELP DEAR WANTS: If your parents parted without seeking professional help in resolving their differences, beg them to give it a iry for their own sakes as well as for yours. But if they have, the advice you received was good. DEAR ABBY: Shortly before our 16-year-old daughter was to receive her driver's license, I made the statement that if she were involved in an accident that was her fault, or was arrested for a traffic violation, I would take her license away for one year. Everyone in the family heard me make this statement. Last week my daughter was driving and my wife was with her. My daughter was trying to look at a road map as she drove. Her mother told her to stop the car if she was going to look at the map, but she didn't stop—until she hit a highway post about five seconds later. Now my wife feels that the one-year penalty was too strict to begin with. I believe it will not only teach the girl a lesson, but will serve as an example to the younger children. If you say the one-year penalty is too harsh, I may reconsider. POP DEAR POP: Yup. It's too harsh. A year is practically a lifetime for a 16-year-old. Personally, 111 bet the highway post taught your daughter more about safe driving than the reprisals of her pop. If it happens AGAIN, lower the boom. For the time being, lower the penalty. DEAR ABBY: I've been married for 23 years and my pet peeve is my husband's constant complaining about the sandwiches I put in his lunch pail. He says he loves tuna fish, but it makes his hands smell. He doesn't like .pork products, and he says peanut butter gives him a pain between his'shoulder blades. He also says he is sick of eggs and cold cuts. And chicken and turkey are too dry. Yesterday he came home and said a fellow had a Canadian bacon sandwich and it looked real good, so this morning I put one in his lunch pail. Well, he came home tonight and said he found out Canadian bacon was ham and he hates ham! Do you have any ideas, Abby? My man is driving me nuts. NOW WHAT DEAR NOW: Keep giving him tuna and pack rubber gloves! 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," is for you. Send $1 along with a long, self-addressed, stamped (24 cents) envelope to Abby, 132 Lasky Drive, Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212. s Mr. and Mrs. Theron King of 218 N. Hamilton St. had three grosbeaks visit them on September 20. They evidently "cased the joint" and liked It because the Kings now have a large gathering in their backyard. The Kings, who are enthusiastic members of the Audubon Society, keep sunflower seeds, mixed seed for wild birds, and suet with peanut butter on hand for the birds. In the January 1978 issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine a list of food for birds may be found to help others who are also interested in keeping feed out In the winter for the birds. * Joe Bellinger and Wayne Bell of Nashville have erected a 250- foot tower six miles northwest of Nashville to serve as a "community repeater" for small businesses whose messages originate at their own control center and are relayed, then repeated from the tower at distances up to 70 miles, We understand several firms have already expressed an interesr in using the service which will help to coordinate the use of labor, vehicles and equipment. Sounds like Bellinger and Bell might just have hit upon a good idea there. THURSDAY But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam ail die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. — I Cor., 15:20-22. "It is not darkness you are going to, for God is Light. It is not lonely, for Christ, is with you. It is not an. unknown country, for Christ is there." — Charles Kingsley, English novelist. ^HOSPITAL MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, ADMITTED: Mrs. Gary McRoy, Roy Chance, Mrs. Timothy Wayne Downs, Mrs. Chester May, Mrs. Maggie Cowling, Lester McRoy, Mrs. Carrie Pasker, all of Hope; Everett Gurls, Mrs. James May, Ross ton.

Learn about meat By Gaynor Maddox This is the time of year for new thoughts, new resolutions and new approaches to living. It is also time to come to grips with the predicted rise in meat prices — perhaps by trying some new varieties of meat. One way to intelligently tackle the problem of rising meat prices is to spend $4.95 for "The Meat Board Meat Book," a new publication containing almost everything you need to know about beef, veal, lamb, pork and variety meats. The book, written by Barbara Bloch with the National Live Stock and Meat Board, includes an enthusiastic introduction by ail-American French chef, Julia Child. The 224-page book describes with words and full- color pictures some 166 different cuts of beef, veal, lamb and pork. The new standard meat terms applied to each are defined. The publication also covers how to buy meat, 1976 grading regulations, meat inspection, bulk buying and food plans, storage of meat, how to cook various cuts and types of meat, outdoor cooking, health and nutrition, carving, equipment, foreign meat terms, cooking and meat terminology and metrics. Take a look at the section on variety meats — kidneys, liver, heart, tongue, tripe, sweetbreads and brains. Try one of those meats at a good French or Italian restaurant. Then try preparing it yourself following a recipe from a reliable cookbook. Now you are off on a new tangent of preparing delicious food, usually at a lower cost. The "Meat Book" has helpful descriptions such as: -"Although it 1* very flavorful and nutritious, heart is not tender and should be braised or cooked in liquid for three or four hours. Most heart that is available comes from beef or veal. It can be stuffed or diced and added to a stew. It can also be ground and combined with other ground meat for added flavor." —"Kidneys are considered a great delicacy. Veal and lamb kidneys are sometimes left attached to chops and sold as 'veal kidney chops' or 'lamb English chops.' Beef kidneys are less tender than other kidneys and should be cooked in liquid or braised." —"Sweetbreads, the two lobes of the thyrnus gland, are a tender and subtly flavored delicacy. Sweetbreads should be soaked and peeled before cooking and then broiled, sauteed, braised or cooked in liquid. Since they are very perishable, they should be frozen or pre-cooked, unless they are going to be used immediately. To pre-cook, simmer for 30 minutes in acidulated water (one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar for each quart of water)," Page Three Women's news Mrs. Annette Rogers Phone 777-8841 ^^^^^^^^^^^•^•••m MHMIgHBH j B Coming and Going Holiday guests of Mr. nnd Mrs, Clyde Browning were Mary Browning and Greg Aehorn o{ Fayettevilk; Jim Browning of Fort Worth, Texas; and Bill and Bob Browning of Arkadolphia.

Benjamin Franklin >•••••••••• Saenger THEATRE By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeaturea Q. — I made a refreshment bur for our finished basement. I painted It black, but my wife says she is sure the paint will bo damaged by spilled drinks. Is there some kind of varnish I can put over it that will protect it better? How about lacquer? A. — Many paint stores carry what Is called bar varnish, especially suitable where hard usage and spilled drinks are inevitable. It can be applied over the point, although you may have to dull the finish slightly so that the varnish will grip better. Forget about lacquer. It may damage the paint. Q. — Why do insulation blankets have vapor barriers? A. — With a vapor barrier, insulation is prevented from absorbing moisture. If there were no barrier, the insulation would get wet and lose much of its effectiveness. That's why it is Important, when installing insulation, not to tear the plastic, metal foil, brown paper or whatever is being used as a barrier. Even the tiniest tear can permit the entry of moisture and, in time, have the same disastrous effect as if no vapor barrier were used. When the barrier has been punctured or ripped accidentally, Jt should be Immediately patched. •••••••••••• TONITE 7:00 FRIDAY NITE 7:00 SATURDAY MAT. 1.00 is a suspense melodrama of the sort that Alfred Hitchcock does best." /"lc«/il Cl'ilir.
