ABBY FAN IN BOSTON DEAR FAN: Germaine Greer can go to her mlkveh and I'll go to mine. [P. S. Mikveh means bath.] DEAR ABBY: I am mystified over your remarks on bathing. Thanks for enlightening me. I had always heard that all men were created equal. I never realized that women were born "dirtier" than men. I knew that a woman is paid less for doing the same job as a man, but until now I didn't know it was because she is offensive. I'm amazed at you, Abby. You must have water on the brain from spending so much time in the bathtub. S. K. H. DEAR S. K. H.: Men and women are NOT created equal—anatomically speaking. Unlike the male reproductive organ, the female's is an orifice which constantly produces a secretion which is normally somewhat odoriferous. She if not necessarily "unclean," but a woman who wants to be forever fragrant will not spare the soap and water. DEAR ABBY: In conjunction with your recent letter concerning bathing: Will you please stress the fact that MEN need underarm deodorants as well as women? My husband and I are square dancers, and I sure wish I could tell some of these men that it isn't their swinging that makes me dizzy, it's just the fact that I am holding my breath—and a gal can hold her breath just so long before she loses consciousness. Please print this, Abby. There are a lot of square dancers, and it could be a lot more fun. A SQUARE IN MICHIGAN DEAR SQUARE: Consider it done. It's not easy to star thru while you're holding your nose. DEAR ABBY: I am one man who wants to thank you for taking the stand you did regarding women bathing. Several years ago I had a secretary who splashed on cologne several times a day. [She probably couldn't stand her own odor.] Between the cologne and her body odor, she turned me against one of the world's loveliest fragrances. I kr.ew she didn't bathe much because her elbows were always dirty, and her filthy feet showed thru her hosiery! She was the talk of the office and altho her work was excellent I had to let her go. I frankly told her why, which didn't seem to bother her. I have let men go for me same reason. Some men may shower daily but they never use deodorant to take care of the perspiration acquired during the stress and strain of the daily routine, which is unfair to their coworkers. Forgive my typing. I typed this myself while my secretary was out for lunch. THE BOSS MAN IN COLUMBUS, OHIO DEAR ABBY: You told a correspondent that you were sure there were many men who had forgiven an adulterous wife, but you weren't prepared to cite name, rank and serial number. I submit one who not only forgave his wife, but he paid to get her back: Name : Hosea [husband of Gover]. Rank: Servant of the Lord. Serial Number: Book of Hosea, Chapters 1,2 and 3. J. B.

Three persons were charged with traffic violations in four separate accidents in the city Monday. A Spirit Lake man, Archie Roy Rouse, was charged with improper backing following a two-car accident on North Sixth St. north of First Ave. N.

Kissinger and Le Due Tho met for another negotiating session today as Hanoi warned that "there has not been any sign showing that the negotiations will reach any results." President Nixon's national security adviser was host to the North Vietnamese Politburo member at a house in St. Norn la Breteche, 10 miles west of Paris. Tho had been the host Monday when the negotiations resumed after a three-week suspension. The unfriendly atmosphere which surrounded Monday's meeting continued today. None of the North Vietnamese were outside to greet Kissinger on his arrival Monday, so none of the Americans were visible when Tho and his staff arrived today. However, the door was opened from the inside as the Superior Return from Christmas Vacation Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Sheldon returned home Friday after a few weeks at the Wayne Sheldon home in Iowa City and the Bill Koop home at Clear Lake since before Christmas. Margery Beck of Estherville was an overnight guest of Dianna Wahlman Wednesday in celebration of Dianna and Dona's birthday. Karl a Foster was also a supper guest at the Loren Wahlman home.

Dinner guests at the Donald Powell Sr. home were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Powell of Jefferson and Mr. and Mrs. Donald Powell Jr. and daughters. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Martens and sons of Easton, Minn., called at the Loren Wahlman home recently. Mrs. Julia Potter arrived home Thursday after a visit at the Larry Potter home in Omaha and in George with her sister, Mrs. Bertha Nickleson of Brooten, Minn., who was visiting the Rev. and Mrs. Willis Nickleson. Susan Wahlman left for Concord, Calif., recently, where she will be staying with an aunt. Mr. and Mrs. Nick Kathman and son of Waterloo recently visited at the H. F. Kathman home. Mr. and Mrs. Claude; Stratman were recent dinner guests at the Fred Clayton home in Estherville. North Vietnamese reached it, while on Monday Kissinger had to open the door to the Communist villa himself. As usual, neither side said anything about what went on in Monday's 4 '/2 -hour session. But Kissinger left the meeting without his usual smile, and there was was no public exchange of cordial farewells like those during the last round of negotiations in December. The North Vietnamese delegation in Paris talks said privately that the public displays of friendliness were dropped because of President Nixon's bombing campaign against Hanoi and Haiphong. Nhan Dan, the official newspaper of the North Vietnamese Communist party, said today •that Hanoi's representatives Iliad returned to the negotiations "with the seriousness and good will to bring about a correct solution to the Vietnam problem." But Nhan Dan made clear that Hanoi was still demanding the U.S. sign the draft peace agreement Kissinger and Tho worked out in October. driven by Christine Marie Nlsh- can of Estherville. Nischan, driving a 1966 Ford, was going west on Fourth Ave. N. and failed to yield the right of way and struck the Blum car. Damage resulted to the front end of the Nischan car and to the left side and window of the Blum car. Estherville police charged a Swea City man, James Michael Forshee, with failing to yield the right of way in a two-car accident at the intersection of South 18th St. and Third Ave. S. The mishap occurred about 1:00 Monday afternoon. Daniel Robert Klein, Estherville, was traveling east on Third Ave. S. when the 1967 Chevrolet he was driving was struck in the left side by a 1959 Chevrolet driven by Forshee. Forshee was traveling south on South 18th St. when the accident happened. A minor accident happened on South 11th north of Sixth Ave. S. about 9:15 Monday morning. According to police, George Raymond Eden Jr. of Swea City had just turned onto South 11th from Sixth Ave. N. when he struck a parked unattended car in the rear. The parked car, a 1969 Dodge, was owned by Fay Mann of Estherville and sustained damage to the rear end. Damage occurred to the right front of Eden's 1966 Ford. r Dr. K. L. Johnson Dr. J. J.
