   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                By Abigail Van Burcn DEAR ABBY: I guess you could call me a "neglected wife." For eight years my hus- band has played weekends in a country western band hero in town or towns nearby, We used to have fights because I wanted to go with him, but he'd never let me. I got tired of fighting with him and just gave up. I knew he couldn't be playing all night, but he'd never get home until 7 or 8 the next morn- ing. He never talks about his music jobs and he has friends I don't even know. He has another job during the week, but his country music weekend jobs are what bother me. He just lives from weekend to weekend. Also, he leaves me without any transportation so I can't check up on him. We never do anything as a family. We have two sons who are getting to be mama's boys because their father has so little time for them. I feel so all alone. I-have no one I can tell my troubles to. Can you help me? NEGLECTED DEAR NEGLECTED: You need more help than I can give you in a letter. If you can't gei your husband to agree to gei counseling with you go withoul him and get some pointers on how io handle an immature bus band, because that's what you have. DEAR ABBY: About a year and a half ago my sisters gave me a beautiful baby .shower. I never did send thank-you notes I for all .the lovely gifts I re i ceived. I really meant to but I 1 never got around to it because so many things happened all a once. (For one thing, I got preg nant again.) Anyway, I still want to sem thank-you notes for the gifts I got at the shower for my firs baby, but I don't want anyone to think I am sending them now to get a gift for my second baby. I could' say something like: "I'm able to use the first gif you gave me for my secoiu baby, so I am sending you a double 'thank you.' Because o all the wonderful gifts I re ceived at the shower I haven' had to buy a thing." (This ii true.) What do you think? A LITTLE LATE DEAR LATE: Since you put i that way, I doubt if anyone wil think you are hinting lor a sec ond gift. DEAR ABBY: Cindy, my 12 year-old daughter, said Joy, he best friend, asked her what shi got from 'her godparentsi foi Christmas and Cindy wa ashamed because she didn' even know who her godparent were. Cindy said Joy described al the lovely gifts her godparent had given her-for other oc casions also said got parents are suppose to giv their-godchild gifts for. Chris! mas, Easter and birthdays. Now Cindy feels cheated an hurt and wants to know hov come her godparents never sen her gifts. What shall I tell her? CINDY'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Tell her tha technically godparents are re sponsible only for looking afte the godchild in the event tha the natural arc unabl to. And that gift-giving alway is mandatory.

Warts Are Hexed Off NEW YORK A distill-, juished dermatologist today as- serted that in removing warts in children, "the remarkable thing you can actually hex hem off." Dr. Walter B. Shelley, chair- man of dermatology of the Uni- versity of: Pennsylvania school of medicine, wrote in the De- c e m b e r issue of "Family iealth'" that he has "a derma- ologist friend -whose biggest herapeutic aid' in the case of warts is a very ordinary shiny >racelet. She tells a youngster ,o wear it until the wart is gone Believe it or not, it works; he wart disappears in a few weeks. "I am not one for black stated Dr. Shelley, "but I must admit that we doctors do not understand all the workings of the mind and QUICK BOSC BETTY For a quick dessert, try Bosc Betty. In a greased 1-quart cas- serole, layer 3 cups diced Bosc pears with a mixture of Vz cup sugar, 1 cup coarse bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons melted sutler and 2 tablespoons grated toasted nuts.

He said warts, which are caused by a virus, are generally destroyed with liquid nitrogen or cut out with a curette. In writing about the treatmen of another skin ailment, Dr Shelley .noted, "Interestingly taking oral contraceptives fre quently halts acne.1' The dermatologist gave thes general hints on how to preven skin problems: "Keep your skin clean, bu don't become fanatic abou it "Don't overexpose yourself to the sun's rays, particularly if you're of Celtic origin. Abil- ity to tan is due to the amount of melanin, or pig- ment, in skin, which is inherit- ed. The end product of too much sun is premature aging and skin cancer "Avoid risking allergic reac tions by finding a reputab] brand of cosmetics and stickin with it if it's compatible wit your skin. "Maintain a routine of su: ficient sleep, a balanced die and regular exercise. A -sic skin can often be healed by body that is healthy and vigoi Dr. Shelley stated. Wafercress; Greaf Vegetable For Soup and Salad Bowls The Cedar Kaplds Gazelle: Mon., Feb. 11, 1974 9 By Craig Clalborne Nsw York Tlmet Nm Strviu OVIEDO, Kla. Superficially there isn't much to distinguish Ovicdo (pronounced o- vee'-do) from any other small town in the central sector of Florida. It's a sleepy village with lots of Spanish moss and palmetto, and most people in nearby Orlando never heard of it- ln fad, (litre are probably a lol of ixioplc in the town itself who do not know that Ovicdo is what might be called the watercress capital of the world. Watercress is with its deep green color and roughly-heart-shaped leaves one of the most eye-appealing greens known to man, and its peppery flavor gives a desirable filip to salad bowls. Grown All Over Watercress is by no means "typically" American. It ia grown all over the world including China, France, Italy, Switzerland, Cuba and England, Britain, in fact may be the nation that prizes it most highly. There are approximately 30 watercress producers in America Ohio, California, Tennessee, Texas, Colorado and so on; more than twice that number thrive in Britain. The B. W. watercress farm here the technical name is B W Quality Growers, Inc. has two owners, Don Weaver, 43 years old, and Richard Burgoon, 36. "My wife's Burgoon explained, "started the business here about a hundred years ago." Today, the firm distributes its product, generally by refrigerator truck, sometimes by air, from Texas to Canada and throughout the East Coast. New York City consumes almost 65 percent of its output. Watercress, as the name Implies, depends on water lots of it for its sustenance. The 150-acre B W farm 5s divided up into enormous, rectangular sunken tracts or beds each about a sixth of an acre. These are constancy moistened by artesian well water. No one has ever devised a method to har- vest watercress mechanically, and thus it is all done'by hand labor. There are workers in the field who have been at their occupation for 25 or more years. Afteer the watercress is gathered and bundled, it is carted to the packing house, where the bundles are chilled immediately in cold water and run "endless" conveyor belt until it's time to box them. The boxes are iced and eventually relayed to refrigerator trucks for the journey to wherever. Watercress is excellent in salads either alone or tossed with other greens such as Bos- ton lettuce or Belgian endive. It also makes excellent soups and is the classic garnish for roast chicken Poulet Roti au Cresson.
