HELEN HELP US Man With Hair Shirt Can't Forget Affair By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL Dear Helen: I never thought I would need help, but here I am, 49 years old, married 24 years, happily for the most part, and in trouble because I had an affair with my partner's wife. 1 don't know how it happened -- I'm not the type to cheat -- or if I ever loved ihis woman. She had had a few experiences and finds it easy to step out as her husband is easily Fooled. My wife is very affectionate. She thought I was sick d u n n g this past year -- until she found out about the affair a month ago. She was hurt, but gave me the choice, and 1 chose to stay home. Thank God my children and my partner don't know! Since then I have not seen the other woman, though she keeps calling me and begg'ng me to come back. I think I can hold out, but the problem, is though my wife has forgiven, we find it hard to forget. I can't seem to express myself to her as I once did. I feel like a hypocrite and my guilt gets in the way. My wife, a wonderful person in all ways, says she feels insecure and u n w a n t e d , which is far from the truth. I love her more than ever. But how do you erase what should never have happened? -- R.D.M. Dear R.: Leftover guilt has ruined more m a r r i a g e s than i n f i d e l i t y , so work the guilt out with straightforward talk. Your wile has forgiven you - why "punish" her more by acting like a hangdog? She may take your non-expressiveness to mean you're unhappy with her and w i s h i n g you were back with the other woman. Let her know you're where you want to be and then stop doing penance. It's a w f u l l y iian l i v i n g with a man who wears a hair s h i r t , and if you don't believe me. ask your wife! -- come to school with big bruises. (The mother's front teeth are uiocked out by him.) He won't let any of them see a doctor, no matter how sick. Worst of all, the 11-year-old daughter told my girl that her 'ather makes her sleep with lim and he has treatened to kill anyone in the family who I can't sign my name, but you can print this, as the parents never read a paper. Can I report them without endangering myself or my family? -- Terribly Concerned Dear Concerned: Talk to your County Health Family Welfare Agency in your :own. An investigation will be made, and your name will nol be mentioned. And don't delay! Did you know that in your slate, a person aware of chile abuse is required by law to report it? This is part of your obligations as a citizen. -- H. Dear Helen: 1 don't want to gel in trouble, but I can't stand to sec this happening to children. This couple has six children all under 12. The shack they live in is filthy - I guc^s the mother gave up after constant beatings.

Ga., said the new breed of alcohol producers might come from "the hard- core unemployed in city slums." He snid such an industry could: --Provide alcohol as a supplementary motor fuel "to meet the current gasoline shortage" and pave the way to making alcohol "the perennial motor fuel in the distant future." --At the same time solve such problems as "air pollu lion, water pollution, nneniploy mcnt, poverty and slum rehabilitation." He told about it in remarks prepared for the spring meeting ot the American Physical Society. Fong observed that "ancient man made liquor before he could write" and "the tech nology is so simple that even an Illiterate can handle 11.

Nashville Postmaster David Juggins said there is no way to stiirmte how much money the ervice is losing because of tamp "pirating," a legal but rowned upon by postal officials raclice of salvaging uncan- elled stamps from incoming nail. The problem has gotten so ad the Postal Service recently ssued a bulletin urging em- loyes to keep an eye out for ncancelled stamps missed by ic post office's modern ma- hines. "Stamps pay our salaries," he bulletin added pointedly. "The fact that stamps are ancclled by machine is partly esponsiblc for the number of tamps missed in the process of lanclling mail." Huggins said. 'But the cancelling process hould be continued right up to ,ie time of delivery at the loorstep." Huggins said there is no way o catch stamp "pirates" be- ause there is no way to prove hat an uncancelled stamp has ot already been used to mail a etter. He said uncancelled stamps ,re more likely to show up on etters and parcels mailed to iiisinessbs which receive mail ii bags. "If we deliver a hag of mail o a single address," he said, 'there will be more uncan- :elled stamps because there ire fewer handling operations."

The APL-CIO's Committee on Political Education convention endorsed Pryor over Faubus and Lt. Gov. Bob Riley for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination this weekend. Faubua said he told t.he committee that Pryor "has done nothing for the working people of this st?,te except take $72,000 of their money in 1072 to run for political office."

Speaking to the Arkansas Jayeecs' Outstanding Young Educators' awards dinner. Faubus called education the most important issue for Arkansas. If elected, he pledged to t r j to raise teachers' salaries by 10 per cent each year and to improve the state teacher retirement system. Notes Birthday LONDON (AP) -- Queen Elizabeth II's 48th birthday brought out the flags on public buildings in Britain, but the traditional gun salutes were postponed because it was Sun day.

But this seems to be the least of all evils," he said. Fong gave theso further details: --The federal government could prime the alcohol industry pump with a $1 billion to (1.5 billion subsidy. --The idea, for the Immediate future at lenst, would be to produce enough alcohol so that motor fuel would consist of a ilend of 20 per cent alcohol and 80 per cent gasoline, thus ex- ending the gasoline supply immediately. WHOLESALE PRICES --The alcohol makers would get 65 cents a gallon wholesale or their product, with the blended fuel costing about $1 a jallon retail. However, opera t o r s of "alcohol cars" wouldn't need antipollution deices. --The venture \vould require doubling the nation's annual corn-crop acreage. But he said there's more than enough idle cropland available. --Leftovers from corn fermentation could be used as animal feed for meat production and "thus lower the price of feed and lead to a more abundant production of meat with a reduced price." --The "alcohol farms" could be fertilized with the liquid effluent from sewage systems, which is "now dumped into the surface water system and causing serious water pollution." Fong claimed that "once the hard-core unemployed is resettled on the alcohol farm, many other city problems and a large part of the current societal problems besides unemployment and poverty can be solved more naturally: crime, welfare, urban deterioration, social tension and so on all the way to school busing," McKesson Bexel SPRING SALE Thru April 30th East Side of Square count6 It's what you take out of your savings account at Fayetteville Savings anci Loan that you'd better c o u n t , . .
