Gazette Photo Bv Duane Crock By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: How can a man come back to life at 53 after 13 years of life without life? My wife died recently after a long illness and I've been out of circulation for so long I don't know where to begin making a new life for myself. I may sound cold and heartless, but now that she is gone, I feel a sense of freedom. You see, she left my bed 13 years ago and never showed me any sign of affection after that, so in my view our marriage ended then. My ego has been ground down to a pulp publicly and privately more times than I can count. My only source of satisfaction is in knowing that I stuck with her bitter end without cheating on her I often was tempted! Now lam free to find a woman who can compensate for all that emptiness. Abby, I am so full of love, and so eager to give it to someone, I can hardly stand it. Somewhere there must be a woman who is willing to take on a steady assignment like that. But where do I start looking? I need it now. Thir- teen years is long enough. I ask only for one with stamina. Thanks. George ..DEAR GEORGE: Call your friends married and single and let them know that yon are interested In dating. You'll be swamped. Find out what yonr church and community have to offer in the way of social programs. Get Into volunteer work. (That's a good way to meet people with similar Interests.) Get out and get going. Some lucky gal has a treat coming. DEAR ABBY: There is a teacher at school who makes some of us girls sick. He pulls the hair out of his sideburns and eats it. We would like to know why ho does this and what we can do to make him stop. NAUSEATED DEAR NAUSEATED: I don't know about humans, but monkeys have been known to pull (he hair out of their heads and eat it when they are des- pondent and frustrated, i think your teacher needs help. Problems? You'll fee! better if you get it off your chest. Far a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los An- geles., Calif. 90069, Enclose stamped, self-addressed en- velope, please. By Roger Linehan DES MOINES (UPI) Although the vows were tradi- tional and contained the usual promises and "I do's" the wedding certainly wasn't the usual quiet church ceremony. .John Thornton, 25, of Hous- and Sue Rees, 22, became husband and wife Sat- urday afternoon in an infor- mal service on Des Moines' north side. The two plighted their troth 20 feet in the air while clinging to a telephone pole. Climbing Gear Instead of the usual lace and organdy the bride was garbed in a sweatshirt, bluejeans, climbing gear and a yellow hard-hat which matched her daisy bouquet. The groom was attired in similar wedding clothes. The newlyweds decided to be married on a telephone pole because the groom is the general foreman of Cablevision Construction Corp. of Houston, which is currently working in Des Moines. "It's John's line of work so we figured we'd get married up Sue said. "It's going to be my said the new husband, "so why not get married this Similar Work Sue said before the service she wants to work in a similar capacity as her husband. But, company regulations currently prohibit that. The 22-year-old bride admit- ted to being a little nervous but she quickly added, "By the time I hit the bottom of the pole I'll be a Mrs. not a missed." Magistrate Gerald Levy per- formed the ceremony in a windy late afternoon from the bucket of a construction boom truck. Features Daily or less: Mary Ovrom, Ottumwa Courier.

By Don Kendall WASHINGTON (AP) Government market experts say consumers will have no trouble finding relatively large supplies of meat at super- markets next month but warn that a little searching will bo needed to find canned vegeta- bles and some other food items. But generally, says the agriculture department, shoppers will have enough of most items to go around during May shopping trips. The preview of next month's grocery store situation was an- nounced Monday in a "Food Marketing Alert" by the department. No Prices The brief report was con- fined only to what USDA ex- perts see as the food supply sit- uation and did not include predictions on prices or over- all grocery costs. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz told a news conference last week, however, that con- sumers already have seen two- thirds of this year's food price increase occur. Prices are ex- pected to go up "a bit more" the remainder of 1974, he said, but not at the rate of recent months. Butz said he thought a prediction by his department earlier this year that 1974 grocery store food prices most likely would go up 12 percent from last year's average still was a valid estimate. The 1973 increase was 16 percent from the previous 12-month average. "Canned vegetable supplies stay well below the report said. "Early March canners' stocks of snapbeans, sweet corn and green peas were 9 percent less than a year earlier. Frozen vegetables, while moving faster than last year, are generally adequate." Potatoes, which have soared to record prices the past season, will continue to be "lighter than normal" in store supplies, the report said. Fruit Low Dairy products generally arc expected lo be amply availa- ble, but nonfat dry milk may continue "fairly tight" next month, the report said. "Dry bean and split pea supplies, in general, arc inadequate because of strong demand and less output in 1973 than in the report said, but added: "May supplies of "lentils for all uses are highest in four years for the In Modesto, Calif., mean- while, industry spokesmen confirmed that supplies of canned fruits and vegetables were at low levels. William F. Allewelt. president of the Tri-Valley Growers, said stocks of canned peaches, fruit cocktail, pears and apricots will reach their lowest level in 30 years during June. Arthur Hciser, president of Tillie Lewis Foods, Inc., of Stockton, Calif., said the same situation is true in the vegeta- ble business. "Our warehouses are nearly empty he said, "and we won't have anything left in them during May and June."
