Fresh pear season is at hand. Beginning in August and continuing through the peak of supply in September, October and November, pears are usually abundant in the local food stores, PEARS HAVE SEASONS As you shop for pears, you may wonder which to choose for eating raw, cooking, or for gift baskets. Actually, most varieties of pears are all-purpose, good for eating raw and for cooking. The Bartletts are large, bell- shaped, smooth, and yellow skinned, often blushed with red. The flesh is fine grained and juicy. You can get them through October. The Bosc, with its long tapering j neck and green-brown russet skin, arrives in October for a stay until after Christmas. It has a rich, slightly tart flavor and is especially suitable for baking and broiling.

DEAR ABBY 50- Year Old Can't Forget That He Went to College ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: How long does it ake for a grown man to forget where he went to college? A friend of mine is almost 50. and two minutes after he meets someone he manages to get into the conversation that he went to Harvard. Now 1 know lots of men who went to Harvard, but they don't mention it 25 times a day. It so happens I never went to college and my income is easily double that of my Harvard friend— which proves you don't have to •:o to Harvard to be a success. '< What can I say to this Harvard ! ;rad to lot him know he sounds ; -'diculous? j \VOODROW WILSON ( HIGH. 1933 DEAR W. W.

"'vr^pl it. DEAR ABRV: Please help set- ' lie a family fight: I have two sis- tors. They got into a real battle and are not speaking to each oth- j er. 1 steered clear of the fight and | am friendly with both of them, i One sister says that if I continue to be friendly with the one SHE isn't speaking to, our friendship will have to come to an end. 1 don't think this is right. What do you think? THE SISTER IN THE MIDDLE. DEAR SISTER; It's your sis-' ter's privilege to fight with whom- i ever she chooses, but she has j no right to force you to non> '• speaking terms with her enemies.! DEAR ABBY: My husband is the world's dullest man. When-! ever we go to a friend's home he ! ! goes off by himself and listens | to the radio. Or else he just sits • and talks to the dog! He never j has a thing to say. I try to draw | him into the conversation and he | answers with a YES or a NO. | What does a wife do when she is married to a moron like this? BORED AND EMBARRASSED. DEAR B AND E; Who picked this moron? And why? CONFIDENTIAL TO HIGH POCKETS: The guy who always 'winds up with the check is not necessarily a "good kid." He is more of a goat.

FOR CALORIE COUNTERS Although pears have been called the "butter fruit" and although their flavor is sweet and rich, they are surprisingly low in calories, averaging around 75 calories per pear. Try eating a fresh pear about half an hour before dinner to cut down your appetite. The cut surfaces will discolor if they are not treated correctly. To prevent this, drop the pear ' wedges into a bowl of chilled i pineapple or orange juice. '. i WAYS TO SERVE Pears are delicately flavored. Try baking fresh pears as y o u i would apples. Canned pears are especially good when broiled i spiced, or used in tarts, upside- ; down cake or pie crisp.
