Not Crabby MADISON, Wis. (AP)- A Madison school teacher has petitioned Circuit Court in Dane County to change her married name, claiming it resulted in classroom discipline problems, Barbara Crabb, who was married last Dec. 27, said the problems began after students began addressing her by her married name.

Here's a switch—he's a soap opera widower By Abigail Van Buren c< I»7J fty CMcm Tribwt-N. Y. Ntwi Synrf., Inc. DEAR ABBY: You get lots of letters from "football widows." How about putting in a good word for "soap opera widowers?" Julia and I have been married three years. I used to call her every day on my lunch hour, and on my days off we used to go around and see the sights. On workdays I'd get off at 5 p. m. and come home to a clean house, smiling wife, and a good supper. Not anymore. For the last five months I've been coming home to a messy house, a TV dinner and wife with a tear-stained face. The reason being she watches soap operas on TV all day long. I can't even call her on my lunch hour because she's in the middle of one of those shows and she doesn't want to miss even two minutes of it to talk to me. I still love my wife, but it's getting to the point where I hate to come home. Please print this. Maybe Julia will see it and realize how I feel. SOAP OPERA WIDOWER DEAR WIDOWER: And what if she doesn't see it? A message as important as this should be telegraphed right over the home plate. Tell Julia how you feel. Mister, and the sooner the better or youil be starring in "Divorce Court" in real life together. DEAR ABBY: Since your reading audience is vast, may I pass on some advice that is valuable, yet possibly not well known? It is regarding bums. Not too many years ago, a physician burned his hand, and immediately immersed it in ice water. He found that the pain left while it was in the ice water, but what surprised him even more was that there was no blistering, redness, ulceration, or scarring. He reported the incident, and now many doctors order immediate ice baths until they can get there. The resulls have been amazing. Check this out with your medical experts if you have any doubts. IOWA DOCTOR DEAR DOCTOR: I 've been aware of the above discovery concerning burns for some time. But It won't hurt to remind folks to reach for an ice cube instead of the greasy stuff. DEAR ABBY: I'd like to comment on the letter signed "Right or Wrong" from the wife who was mad at her husband because he was too tired to mow the lawn then he went next door and worked on the roof of a neighbor's house. This neighbor was a cute young widow whom the wife described as a woman who never paid for anything "in cash." When the wife saw her husband working on her neighbor's roof she went over and hit him a good one with the dust mop, and you said it was a draw between which one was right or wrong. I don't think so. A woman should never hit a man unless she is prepared to be hit back. I have never hit my wife, but then she's never hit me, either. Also, that wife should find out what it is the widow pays with and do likewise. After all, they both have the same equipment in the dark.

To Continue Oil Imports WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon's refusal to end oil- import quotas may send fuel and oil prices skyrocketing, says a former aide to the chairman of the Federal Power Commission during the Kennedy and Johmson administrations. "This winter's so-called energy crisis was manufactured right here in Washington," David Freeman, director of the Ford Foundation energy-policy project, said Thursday. "It could have been averted with the stroke of a pen." Freeman was referring to Nixon's rejection three years ago of a Cabinet-level task force recommendation to scrap the oil-import quota system, which restricts the amount of oil which can be imported. Nixon eased the restrictions earlier this month by exempting heating oil from the quotas and allowing a 51-percent increase in the total amount of oil which can be imported. Freeman said industry and government plans for ending energy shortages include continuation of quotas, accelerated strip mining and removal of controls on natural-gas prices. These, he said, are certain to prompt higher prices. "Higher prices may well be required in order to find and develop new sources of oil and gas that may involve higher costs," said Freeman. "But the oil companies are obviously not losing money on the oil and gas which is now flowing to the consumer." He recommended immediate scrapping of quotas, initiating programs to trim energy consumption and spurring research into additional energy sources. Correction One of two new directors elected to the Wallingford Telephone Coop board of directors was stated as Loren Andrew in Thursday's Daily News. It should have been Loren Anderson.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Extremist groups— both black and white—continued to try to stir up racial unrest in 1972, acting FBI Director L. Patrick Gray III says. In an annual report issued Thursday, Gray said "organizations, both black and white, continued to be aimed at fomenting racial discord and represented a problem of grave concern." Gray cited the Ku Klux Klan, the Secret Army Organization, the Black Panther Party, Black Liberation Army, the Weatherman, Students for a Democratic Society and Stokely Carmichael, former head of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Gray, who replaced J, Edgar Hoover after his death last May, said the FBI's concerted drive against crime led to a record of more than 1,000 convictions of hoodlum, gambling and racket figures. Also, Gray said the cases of approximately 3,000 other individuals, including syndicate ' leaders with organized crime, were in various stages of prosecution as of Jan. 1. Gray added that the percentage of successful hijackings in 1972 was 29 per cent compared with 87 per cent in 1969. In the area of civil rights, Gray said investigations in- Iowa in Brief 1 County Roads Liquor Sales DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-A major problem facing county supervisors is what to do about 21,000 miles of secondary roads in Iowa that carry fewer than 24 vehicles a day, says the Iowa Good Roads Association. Some 5,500 miles of secondary highways in the state are used by fewer than 10 vehicles a day and another 15,000 to 16,000 miles of secondary highway crry only 10 to 24 vehicles a day, C. W. Sloan, executive vice president of the association, told the Iowa County Supervisors Association in Des Moines Thursday. County officials "must keep constantly on the alert to eliminate such roads whenever possible," said Sloan. But he added that any planning for mass transit systems should include consideration for secondary roads because the "school bus system is by far the biggest mass transporter in the state" and most of the 56 million miles traveled by school buses is over the state's 90,000 miles of secondary roads. Fraud DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-A man posing as an official of a Des Moines insurance company got away with more than $9,000 Thursday afternoon. Police said a man identifying himself as the treasurer of the Bankers Life Co. called a teller at Central National Bank, saying he needed $9,420 from a company account to pay em­ ploye bonuses. Officers said the man had contacted someone at the insurance firm, authorizing the money to be sent to a fictitious doctor at Iowa Methodist Hospital. The man who delivered the money said he turned it over to a man at the hospital who identified himself as a representative of the doctor. The real treasurer of the insurance company, meanwhile, learned of the fraud when the bank phoned him to confirm that the money had been delivered. cheaper.

Authorities said a car driven by Vincent Murphy, 69, Davenport, turned in front of the motorcycle and the young man was thrown from the cycle. Davenport police charged Murphy with failure to yield the right-of way while making a left turn at an intersection. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Gov. Robert Ray suggested Thursday night that privately owned stores in some Iowa small towns be allowed to sell liquor. In his budget message to the legislature, Ray said the Governor's Economy Committee had recommended such a procedure, which already is authorized by law, instead of having state liquor stores in "towns where they are not feasible." He said the Iowa Beer and Liquor Control Department since it was reorganized a year ago has remodeled 22 state liquor stores into self-service establishments — more than was done in all the years before reorganization. But the department, Ray said, now plans eight new liquor stores where the traffic warrants it and wants to eliminate seven existing stores. "There is no better tie to experiment with this recommendation than now when some towns are faced with the possible loss of an existing liquor store," Ray said. Iowa Exports DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa should open its own trade offices overseas to stimulate exports of farm commodities and manufactured goods, Gov. Robert Ray said Thursday night. He told the legislature his budget for the 1973-75 biennium provides for establishing two such offices — one in the European Common Market countries and one in Japan. Through such offices "we could encourage increased trade for our agriculture and industry which in turn would benefit us all," Ray said. He added that Iowa products are "in demand in countries in every part of the globe" and the state should take steps to develop new markets. Need Money DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)The director of the Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network said because of lack of funds his employes have "literally had to beg" for donations to keep broadcasting. John Montgomery, IEBN director, Thursday asked a legislative subcommittee for a nearly three-fold budget increase. He said the state might be better off to get out of the educational broadcasting if the proposed budget is sharply reduced. creased in 1972. He gave as examples the probes in the wounding of Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace and the killing of two students and the wounding of others at Southern University at Baton Rouge, La., Nov. 16, 1972. Composer Graff Dies STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP>George Graff, 86, who composed the words to the song "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," has died at a hospital in nearby East Stroudsburg. Graff, who died Wednesday, had written more than 400 songs, but "Irish Eyes" was by far the most successful and brought him about $10,000 a year in royalties. Born in New York City, of Dutch and German descent, Graff was living at his mother's home on 129th St. when he wrote the lyrics to "Irish Eyes" in 1912. He and the late Ernest Ball had teamed up on several successful numbers. Ball wrote the music, Graff the words. Graff, who retired in 1955, admitted he had' never been to Ireland.
