'ear By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Apropos the let- ter from Years ago when I was "bereaved" had the following experience: My husband (a physician) hac died after a long illness. I start- ed writing my letters of thanks for condolences almost immedi- ately after the memorial ser- vices. When I was about midway through my letter I had a tele- phone call from a woman who had sent flow- ers. She had been a patient o! my husband's. Her side of the conversation went like this: "How are you getting along? Did you get my flowers? Exactly what did the doctor die I'm sure her flowers were an expression of sincere sympathy, but'what of the'ielephbne inter- view? Honestly, now. What is this notion that it is perfectly al! right to inquire into the nature of a person's illness, terminal or otherwise?

Bell DETROIT (UPI) The hairdressers of Detroit sug- gest milady change her hair style and help ease the energy It is a very short cut and crisis. The hair style they suggest is the "Energy Cut." (he idea is that women with less hair to worry about will use less electricity and gaso- line to keep it clean and fash- ionable. No Setting "It really is very popular with our said Bart Edmond, who operates beauty salons in Detroit and Grosse Pointe. The man who gave the style its name is Gerald Haynes of suburban Franklin, who said customers who used to make weekly appointments now come once every three or four weeks. "No setting, blowing or fuss- ing is he said, "so there's no need to waste gaso- line driving to see me or waste electricity with all those dryers, blowers and curlers." Haynes ;Cuts hair twice, once before applying a perma- nent and once after. No Time "Of course, women who swim or play tennis must shampoo he said. "Otherwise, the energy cut requires almost no care. It takes care of itself." Heidi Brancheau, who owns three beauty salons in subur- ban Soulhfield and West Bloomfield, said, "We're back into short hair because women don't have time to sit under the hair dryer." The hair length now, hair- dressers said, is less than two inches on top and three inches at the back. "Sure, we do the Energy said Fran Terro, man- ager of Connie's Cut and Curl in Detroit. "But we call it the short shag. We've called it that for years." By 1'atricla McCormack NEW YORK (UPI) If you're worried about the rising cost of living start chopping the food bill by growing some vegetables indoors now. And put a big dent in it this sum- mer by planning your outdoor garden soon. Pixie and dwarf varieties of many common vegetables grow in medium-size crocks, pots or buckets placed in a sunny spot at home or in the office. Jeannetle Lowe, horticul- turist with W. Atlec Burpee Seed Co. in Philadelphia, said in a telephone interview that the midget crops from little corn, tomato, and bean plants taste just as good as the regu- lars. Precedent Growing vegetables on of- fice windowsills isn't a first. But if it gets out of the nov- elty class, it would set a precedent. Besses cool to the idea may have second thoughts when weighing the economics. Of- fice-grown vegetables could help cut food bills. Miss Lowe said Burpee's Pixie tomato plant produces indoors a tomato larger than the cherry one. It yields from a plant only a fool tall. Some indoor gardeners get good results by using fluores- cent lighting which most of- fices have. AH office gar- deners, therefore, may not need that sunny orities on the small gardening front estimate 50 million fami- lies will start vegetable gar- dens outdoors this spring. Not since victory gardening to cut food shortages during World war II have so many families set out to fight a problem through gardening. The estimate of a massive trek back to the soil stems from seed sales. These, run- ning ahead of last year, may break records, according to Miss Lowe and others. Miss Lowe does not foresee a seed shortage. Production of seed packets for home gar- deners last season was geared to meet increased demand up 15 percent last year. Americans spent nearly million for seeds in 1973, ac- cording to industry estimates. Bulletin First-lime growers of midg- et vegetables indoors get just about all the help they need on the seed packets. But first- time planners of outdoor gar- dens need more. For the novices and some veterans, the best help for the least amount of money is in home and garden bulletin No. 202 U.S. department of agri- culture. The booklet called "Grow- ing Vegetables in the Home Garden" can he had by send- ing 70 cents to: Superin- tendent of Documents, U.S. government printing office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Give the title of the booklet. table giving range of dates after the last freeze for the safe planting outdoors of ev- erything from asparagus to watermelon. If you don't have a place for a garden, now is the lime also to get together with a neighbor about a coopera- tive plot, perhaps in a com- munity garden spot set aside by town government. Last year there was a growth of such plots in parks and on school grounds. If your town didn't do that last year, now is the time to drop the suggestion on the proper of- ficial desk. Insulation Saves Fuel and NEW YORK (UPI) Insula- tion in the attic will help re- duce the fuel bill and save energy. The U. S. department of agri- culture says three inches of ceiling insulation can reduce heating ecsts percent. Storm windows and storm doors can save another 1214 percent.
