To Be Married Cheapskate plays while wife scrimps By Abigail Van Surtn (• Ifn * CMeMi TffiMtN. V. NlM tfM., M.1 DEAR ABBY: My husband now claims complete custody of the checkbook. Since I quit my job seven months ago, his teaching salary has been our only income, and he says that until I start earning my own money, I get no spending money. Not one dime! I wouldn't mind his handling the money, but while I'm trying to figure out 1,001 ways to stretch hamburger, he en- Joys extravagant sports, i. e. golfing, shooting skeet, hunting, fishing, etc. I worked as a secretary from the first day we were married, so he could get thru college. During all those years I went to the laundromat with the baby clothes and diapers while he was golfing at the club. In the lean years, I wouldn't buy a candy bar, but he was buying magazines by the half dozens. He now says if I want money to spend, I should go out and earn it, that food and shelter should be enough for me. Any advice? BROKE AND BITTER DEAR B & B: If "food and shelter" is all he can offer you, yours isn't much of a marriage. Get some counseling [both of you] and try to salvage your marriage. If that doesn't work, leave the selfish prig, and let the law decide how much "support" he will have to provide. DEAR ABBY: Is it wrong to talk to yourself? I do it all the time when I'm mad or sad or want to really think something out. I mean I actually talk out loud to myself like I was another person. Please answer soon and sign me. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: It's not "wrong." In fact, it's a good idea. People who talk to themselves are less apt to say [or do] things on the Impulse, which Is usually what gets them into trouble. DEAR ABBY: I'm writing to make a request of those people who learn that a friend is pregnant with her second, third or more child shortly after having had a baby. Such a woman doesn't need remarks like, "I'm glad it's you and not me!" Or worse, "Boy, are YOU going to have your hands full!' I realize these remarks are usually made with well-intentioned sympathy, but I'm sure there are more comforting things one could say. Perhaps I am the only oversensitive female who has ever been bothered by it, but I rather doubt it. After eight months it becomes somewhat wearing to hear the same inane phrases from so many. PREGNANT AGAIN DEAR PREGNANT: And speaking of inane remarks to those who are infanticipaUng, how about, "Are YOU still walking around?" DEAR ABBY: Please, please advise brides to sign their notes of thanks properly. I am a grandmother and send many wedding presents to unknown children and grandchildren of relatives and old friends. Months later I receive a sweet little note signed "Alice"—and I haven't the faintest idea who it's from. Please tell brides to sign their notes with their maiden names, plus their married names. Alice Smith, who married John Jones, should sign her name Alice Smith Jones to all but her most intimate friends. Anyone whom she addresses as Miss or Mrs. should have a full signature. ALICE'S MOTHER'S OLD FRIEND DEAR FRIEND: Done! And while we're on the subject, when acknowledging a gift, not only should the writer clearly identify liimself, he should identify the gift. ["Thank you for the lovely back-scratcher, ice bucket, or candle-snuffer."] Problems? Trust Abby. For a personal reply, write to ABBY, BOX 69700, L. A., CALIF.

Musk Oil The fragrance of musk oil is becoming more and more popular because of the earthy scent. But for girls who don't like the feel of oil on their bodies, instead of applying directly to your skin try mixing a bit of the oil with your bath water. The scent will still be there and the oils will help moisturize the body. Women first entered the modern Olympic Games in 1900.

Sumner, announces the approaching marriage of her daughter, Jeanie, to James W. Gardner, son of Robert W. Gardner and Mrs. Francis Pierce, both of Denver, Colo. The wedding is slated for Saturday, June 17, in St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Denver. The bride-elect, a 1968 graduate of Pampa High School, attended Commercial College and Texas Tech, Lubbock. She is employed as a secretary at Wesco Fabrics, Denver. The prospective bridegroom is a 1964 graduate of South High School, Denver and of Emily Griffith Opportunity School. He is manager of the hardware department at Wesco Fabrics: Your Horoscope FRIDAY, JUNE If, YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: Whatever you have developed up to now is tes(ed in different conditions, fresh experience, and many changes are indicated. It is an active year of normal material success. Today's natives have an unspoken sober side, are often very keen for the esthetics of fine arts, sensitive, observant. Aries [March 21-April 19]: Stop, look, listen, ask before you go into something for the first time. The surface may be the same, but it's different underneath. Taurus [April 20-May 20]: Financial speculations are confused, better left alone. Getting matters assembled requires insight and compromise on your part. Gemini [May 21-June 201: Communication is the key factor—be sure you have correct figures. Expect conflict between what you want and what everybody else wants. Cancer [June 21-July 221: You have support if you can protect your resources from public notice. It's a day for housecleaning for larger events later. Leo [July 23-Aug. 221: Use scrupulous care in tending others' resources, as well as your own. Take time to ad- Diton mire the esthetic qualities of your environment. Virgo [Aug. 23-Sept. 22]: Close, well-tested friends now may come in with you on a progressive enterprise. Home living improves, for no apparent reason. Libra [Sept. 23-Oct. 22]: Consultations or professional advice, are favored. Domestic arrangements need more care to avoid misunderstandings about place and time. Scorpio [Oct. 23-Nov. 211: Social fun is the main channel of expression. It is inadvisable to mix business with active friendship on today's offerings, openings. Sagittarius [Nov. 22-Dec. 21]: Avoid beginning a major new venture, but work on projects already started. Any future extension should be left tentative. Capricorn [Dec. 22-J a n . 19]: Confusion from an outside source is almost certain, and it is clearly not lasting. Professional authorities are accessible. Aquarius [Jan. 20-Feb. 18]: Strangers unwittingly are of great help in putting things into perspective for you. Change pace and mood for later hours, Pisces [Feb. 19-March 20]: Differences of opinion, philosophy are completely normal and expectable. Continue gathering information soliciting skilled assistance.

"We remember when graduation addresses were prepared around the theme of the 'Ladder of Success."' she slated. "There was. in most of this oratory, the assumption I'hiil I he ladder was there. There was only the need to take hold and start climbing. The truth overlooked many times is that those who wish to climb must construct their own ladder, ll is only in 'dresims Ilia! ladders conveniently appear." She stated one of the parallel . uprights in the club's ladder was "work." explaining "a willingness to work must be possessed by every officer." The other upright, she'said. is "expectation." explaining, "we wilj never net higher than our expectation." The ruiif{s on the ladder she listed as yearning, resolution. enthusiasm, joy. jjnilitudi 1 . patience, and persistence. "Our goal from the beginning was the lop rung of the ladder." she concluded. "Here at the beginning of the year, the goal may seem far distant. Keep in mind that the first thing to do to begin climbing a ladder is to lake hold with your hands." Installed were Mrs. Alma Ash. piT.sidenl: Mrs. Faye Katon. vice president; Mrs. Laura Hell Cornelius, recording s e c r e t a r y ; Mrs. V, l he I Anderson, corresponding secretary; Mrs. Lora Dunn.

The de Null ie exhibition opened Thursday and Friday with a meet-the artist invitational preview and reception both evenings. The lull selection of painting will be on view at High Plains during the month of June and a limited collection thereafter. The show will include a wide selection of action-packed battle scenes, weather-plagued patrol movements, and fierce two-man skirmishes, in si/es ranging from U(i" x W" to 24" x 28" ID small studies of horses. Indians and cavalrymen. Because he is essentially an outdoors man who has spent a good parl of his 1)4 years exploring all parts of the west, he is a man who feels mosl al home with nature, animals, terrain and the unencumbered way of life that needs little more than a sleeping bag and a can of beans. MeCarly stated. His paintings of horses and the action of those horses are considered parliculary good. This. too. comes naturally to the artist since he has bred, raised, trained and ridden horses for almost as long as he can remember. Hy Oswald & James Jacoby ARCH stands for Analyze the lead; Review the bidding; Count, winners and losers and finally, How can I make my contract? Experts use it more or less automatically; ordinary players should learn to follow it with all hands. It isn't hard for South to Analyze the king of hearts lead or to Review the bidding. West clearly has a long strong heart suit and has led it. South can Count winners and losers rather easily. He must lose a club and has some possible losers in trumps. In Utopia, South can lead a diamond to dummy; play a spade and finesse his jack. Spades will break 3-3 with the queen in the Kast hand and South will make twelve tricks. He will make eleven if Kast holds four trumps to the queen or West three to the queen. He will make just nine the way the cards lie because West has four (rumps to the queen; will win the first trump and shorten South down to (he same number he holds. Later on he will be able to keep South from ever collecting a club (rick. All this will be bad luck but South should avoid it. He should see that he can afford to lose two (rum p tricks. After that he will cash the ace and king of (rumps and play nothing but clubs and diamonds from then on. He will lose two (rump tricks but he will have insured his contract.
