millionaire What is a millionaire Does having more than a million dollars in total assets make me a millionaire Or do I have to have a net worth of more than a million dollars I have no one to discuss my finances with At pre sent I dont have a CPA And when I did have one I never disclosed my total situation because I was afraid if he knew how much I had he might charge me more for his services Since my divorce I have accumulated quite a lot of property Im not bragging but I havent done too bad for a country boy who never went to college Im still single and plan to stay that way unless I meet a woman who doesnt judge a man by how much money he has I drive a car and prefer to keep a low profile Thanks for any advice you can give me but most of all I want to know if Im a millionaire Doing OK in Texas DEAR DOING OK According to the dic a millionaire is one whose wealth is estimated at a million or more dollars so you qualify My advice Raise your profile a little enjoy fruits of your labor and use everything you have going for you including your money PS If you want to withhold information from your CPA thats your Dear Abby Abigail Van Buren Universal Press Syndicate business But dont try to fool the IRS thats their business DEAR ABBY DO you think that after being a houseguest for a week it is proper to make a long distance telephone call say ing thanks in lieu of a letter It seems to me that con the work and ex pense involved for the hostess a guest should take the time to write sion of thanks I will bow to your deci sion before condemning Asking Too Much DEAR ASKING The written thankyou note is without question the most elegant and mannerly way to express gratitude But dont condemn any method of conveying thanks in the telephone call It gets the job done PS Whatever happened to that charming custom of saying it with flowers DEAR ABBY Six mon ths ago a close friend of mine who lives out of town was married My husband and I were invited to her wedding but we were unable to attend Some friends informed me that it isnt necessary to send a wedding gift if you dont at tend the wedding My con husband agreed so we didnt send anything To this day I feel bad about not having sent a gift I thought of sending them a check and telling them I thought I had sent it but I just found it in a dresser drawer If that sounds stupid what other excuse could I make for sending it so late Or is it OK not to send anything Feeling Guilty DEAR GUILTY Webster defines a gift as something transferred voluntarily by one person to another without compen sation It is not something one gives in order to get rid of a guilty conscience Your gift will be welcome any time so dont feel that you must come up with an excuse for not having come up with a gift sooner Do you wish you had more friends Get Abbys booklet How to Be Popular Youre Never Too Young or Too Send your name and ad dress clearly printed with check or money order for includes postage to Abby Popularity PO Box 38923 Hollywood Calif 90038 Raising children has no instant gratification The trouble with raising kids is there is no instant gratification Just when youre sailing along and you feel its all worthwhile you get a ice scraper from your old son for Mothers Day that he picked up free at the gas station You get plain tired and wonder how much longer you ha veto hang on We all need stories with happy endings to sustain us A mother in California said recently she got a note from her son that said I appreciate you I know I have contributed to your headaches Bingo A year and a half ago according to his mother he barely spoke English Yeah man He was going to surf as a pro had been asked to leave three schools was in in alcohol and drugs and was neither moral nor immoral he was amoral

At Wits End Erma Bombeck Field Syndicate mother neyer turned to drink No one could save her from chocolate but I couldnt blame her either I was the child who ed at on a Monday morning Sister Margaret James wanted 47 pairs of used nylons for an art pro ject I was the adolescent who yelled I hate you because I was not allowed to hitchhike 65 miles in December and sleep at a rock concert where the pro were going to help hippies in crisis I was the new driver in the house who honestly felt that a dollars worth of gas was reimbursement for the Saturdays spent cruising every shopping center mall in the county I was the young adult leaving home to experience life on my own to follow a boyfriend 1500 miles and 14 months later return to the bosom of my family us ing their car leaving my wet towels on the floor and monopolizing the telephone The vicious threat of my mother has been par realized May you have twins just like yourself I am now the mother who contemplated breaking my childs legs when my husband an Well get a dog as soon as the baby can walk I used to be articulate I call dogs doggies and ac tually excuse myself to potty in a group of adults I live in fear that the punk look will still be with us when my daughter is old enough to date I dont know how my mother stood it Im going to keep these two letters handy I wouldnt be surprised if I reread them twice a week just to keep going Cook offers new gift idea Homemade packaged feasts By LAURIE LOEWENSTEIN BETHLEHEM Pa AP A fragrant serving of stuffed grape leaves STOP A sublime salad of greens homemade cheese and black olives STOP Flaky layers of glisten ing with honey STOP No dont stop The friends and associates of Rose Douvanis have a seemingly unstoppable ap petite for her homemade specialties and now the unstoppable cook has come up with a new way to satisfy them the Gram Fora Mrs Douvanis will prepare a homemade meal to order package it steaming hot and have it ready for pickup at her home The idea was born recently during a telephone conversation with her sister Helena Yacoub now living in Oregon Helena used to work in Allentown City Hall with Jacqueline Poe and she wanted to do something ferent for her birthday Mrs Douvanis said She wanted to treat her to a Middle Eastern meal The Bethlehem cook volunteered to act as the substitute good fairy and to prepare a special menu for Mrs Poe I called up Jackie wish ed her a happy birthday and told her that courtesy be treated to a Gram The pair agreed upon a date and the menu And so Mrs Douvanis packaged a feast of baba eggplant with sesame hors charcoaled kibbe patty stuffed grape leaves Syrian bread toss ed salad with homemade cheeses baklava mool pastry fill ing for the birthday celebration And it was even prepared so that Mrs Poe could reheat the leftovers It was like heaven said Mrs Poe It was so good She really is the best cook Although Mrs Douvanis excels in Middle Eastern food she also offers menus with Greek and Italian themes Im an adventurous cook she said and Ill try anything 5 SOUTHEASTERN E GENERAL HOSPITAL ACS comments on nutrition and cancer Certain basic skills help to make friends WHATS HAPPENING

week prior to the publication of the event WHATS HAPPENING PO Box 1100 Lumberton NC 28358 The following column was prepared for The by the Depart ment of Public Relations of Southeastern General Hospital NUTRITION AND Last week this column reviewed the American Cancer Societys recent dietary recommendations in areas where there was sufficient data to warrant such guidelines The ACS plans to modify these recommendations as new information is obtained from research Today well look at the ACS comments on substances which have received much attention in the media but about which there is still insufficient evidence to base a specific recommendation Food additives Although various chemicals added to food have been found to cause cancer in animals and been banned several others are thought to be protective against car The cancer risks or benefits of food additives are still under tion Vitamin E More research is needed before the role of Vitamin E an antioxidant in human cancer prevention can be determined Selenium Although limited evidence exists that selenium a trace ele ment may protect against some cancers the ACS warns against the medically unsupervised use of selenium because of the potential for selenium poisoning Artificial sweeteners High levels of saccharin have been shown to cause bladder cancer in rats but there is not clear evidence for an increased risk of bladder cancer among moderate human users Also the longterm effects of new sweeteners now entering the market have not yet been studied in humans Coffee Although some studies link high tion of coffee with bladder and pancreas cancer others fail to make this con There is nothing to indicate that caffeine naturally found in both cof fee and tea is a risk factor in human cancer Meat and fish cooked at high temperatures such as by frying or broiling This practice of cooking gives rise to a number of potent mutagens agents that cause genetic changes in bacteria and some of them have caused cancer in animal tests More such testing is now under way Cholesterol Although cholesterol rs thought to be a risk factor in heart and blood vessel disorders there is little to link a high cholesterol blood level to risk of cancer Also evidence relating low blood cholesterol to cancer is in conclusive Based on the ACSs recommendation and com ments no optimal diet has yet been defined The Society is presently con ducting inhouse studies and supporting dozens of grants in nutrition research Such studies should bring further dietary recommendations in the near future If you have any questions about nutrition and cancer or any topic the Cancer Informa tion Service of the National Cancer Institute offers ac curate uptodate informa tion in laymens terms at its number 18004 CANCER To make a friend
