Things Could Be a Lot Worse DEAR ABBY: I wish they would outlaw baseball! My husband is such a big sports fan he has two TV's going in separate rooms, and he carries a transistor radio around to keep track of a third game. When we go out for an evening he has to have the transistor plugged in his ear to keep up with a baseball game somewhere. We can't go to bed at night until he finds out how the teams did all over the country. He ignores me completely, and we have been married only four months. I am not an old bag either. I am 36-24-36. STRIKING OUT DEAR STRIKING OUT: If Sport* Fan ignores you during the seventh inning stretch end after the scores are all in and the lights are all out, he could have bigger problems than you. Let me hear how you wind up the Mason. DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who just loves to write letters. I think she must be a frustrated novelist. She will start a letter on Monday, add to it on Tuesday, keep adding to it every dap until she finally closes on Friday. One of her letters can be 15 or 16 typewritten pages—single spaced. She never has any news, it's just a lot of drivel. But what really gets me is this. She works for a doctor, and she uses his business stationery, his envelopes, and I'm sure his stamps and his TIME. To me, it's out and out stealing, ts there some tactful way to bring this correspondence to an end? HATES TO WRITE DEAR HATES: Yes. Don't answer. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter was married on the spur of the moment and we didn't have time to order formal announcements, so I wrote letters to our immediate family telling them about our new son-in-law. I also inclosed a picture of the couple taken on the day of their marriage. Of the 11 letters I wrote, nearly five months ago, only one relative bothered to send my daughter a wedding gift. I have sent dozens of lovely gifts to those relatives for graduations, weddings, etc., so naturally, I was stunned. My husband says they are under no obligation to acknowledge our daughter's marriage because we sent no formal announcements and had no wedding. Don't you think a handwritten announcement should have brought some ackowl- edgement? SHOCKED DEAR SHOCKED: An "acknowledgement," yes. A gift, no. Gifts are ALWAYS optional. CONFIDENTIAL TO "B" IN CLEVELAND: "Impotence" is not grounds for annulment in the state of Ohio. But "unsound mind" is—so see a lawyer. You may have a case.

Lakota girl wins "rate-of-cain" Fair award Linda Beck from the Aggressive Lads 4-H club at Lakota won ;he rate of gain contest with an outstanding 3.54 pounds of gain jer day from weigh in in Febru ary until fair time. This is a very outstanding record. Previous winners had been around a three pound gain. The animal started February 25 at 609 pounds and finished at 1210 pounds on August 15 for a 3.54 pounds gain. The champion is three-fourths Hereford and one-fourth Charo- lais. Rate of gain is very important to the beef industry and is being stressed more each year to 4-H members, says Galen De- Valois, county extension direc tor. The reason for it's import ance is that efficiency and profit are usually directly correlated with rate of gain. C. R.

She worked 48 hours a week at the hospital and also played the organ in the hospital compound during the month of July. The Berlin wall was approximately two feet from the edge of the hospital, so she had a good view of it. She also saw many other sights of Berlin while she was there.
