Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa By Abigail Van Huren DEAR ABBV: My problem is my neighbor who lives directly above me in an elegant tuwnliouse apartment building on the chic east side of Manhattan. This gentleman lives alone, and gets up every morning of his life at 5. This includes Christinas, New Year's day and Sundays. He makes noise which lasts until 7. I don't know exactly what he does, but it sounds like he's exercising, rolling on the floor or jogging in one place. All this in his bedroom, which is over mine. I don't have to he out of bed until 7 and it irritates me to be awakened two hours early every day. Once I am awake, I cannot go back to sleep. I've tried everything. I invit- ed him here for a Christmas party, and then gently took him aside and told him that his early rising morning noises bothered me. He said all he does is "get dressed" and he can't understand how that could disturb me. I talked to my landlady and she said she has only my word and she can't demand that he .leave before his lease expires in three years. My lease has another year to go. Please don't suggest I try to make friends with him again. It's gone beyond that stage now. I saw my lawyer at a party recently and he suggest- ed I phone this neighbor every morning at 3 and ask him how he likes to be awakened two hours early every morning. Please, please help me. My nerves are shot. MRS. S. DEAR MRS. S.: I'd take the lawyer's advice, after which I'd ask my druggist to recom- mend the best earplugs availa- ble. If that fails, invite your landlady to spend the night with you and share a rude awakening. Problems? You'll feel better If Iyonjet it.off yonr .reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los An- geles, Calif. 90069.

By Lorry Alexander Cticfckte Tmtti CIIKHOKKK, Iowa (AC) Widows arc considwinj! ri'marriiiKc an- often faced willi loss of benefits llicy have been receiving. Various sources were presented with two hypothetical sit- uations refianlinn widow's benefits and what effect remarriage has on them. The situations were: A widow, 66, Is presently living on her deceased hus- band's social security or pension benefits. What income change, if any, occurs if this widow remarries? A 66-year-old unmarried woman Is receiving social security or pension benefits accrued throiif-h her wurkiilK years. What income change, if any, occurs if she remarries? "A widow's rcman-iane after am? fill will never terminate her entitlement to widow's according to the social security administration. "However, the amount which she is receiving as a widow may change." Widow's Benefits The administration said anyone receiving widow's benefits may want to contact the nearest social security office regard- ing the exact monetary change which will result if she remarries. It said remarriage will have no effect on participation in Medicare. "Marriage or remarriage lias absolutely no effect on the amount a single woman may be receiving on her own account nor docs it have any effect on her participation in 'said the administration. The Iowa Employment Security commission said if a widow were drawing benefits based on her husband's account under Iowa Public Employes Retirement System (IPERS) and should remarry, it would not affect her eligibility to continue to receive such benefits. The commission said an unmarried woman, years of age drawing her personal IPERS benefits, could marry and con- tinue to draw them. Electrical Pension Under the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers pension plan, when the optional spouse's benefit is taken, the benefits for a widow would be for as long as she lives, regardless of her marital status. The Railroad Retirement board said with regard to the liB-year-old widow, "her railroad retirement annuity would ecase upon remarriage and be replaced by a social security spouse benefit based on her husband's social security record." The board said the net financial effect would depend on the relative sizes of the benefits, but "generally the difference would not be substantial." If instead sho were a social security widow beneficiary, her widow's benefits would be replaced by a spouse's benefit which would "almost certainly be'considerably the board said. "In the case of a retired woman employe, .her railroad re- tirement employe annuity would be unaffected." However, her marriage to a social security old age beneficiary would result in her qualification for a social security spouse benefit, 'thus creating an over-all favorable financial situation." The board said generally, total income from these sources before and after marriage would be about the same. The.decision to marry should be made only by the two persons involved in the relationship. Unfortunately for many elderly persons, the decision is made for them by government or private industry. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: MOB., May 20, 1974 Tuna Fish: Versatile, Nutritious By Tom lloge About years ago. the California sardine, a mainstay in the diet of many Americans, disappeared from the waters off our West cuast. As local fishermen began search for a replacement, u San Pedro canner sensed the promise of tuna, lie processed the first 7IIII cases of this new canned food in his I.os Angeles plant. Today, more than half a billion pounds of tuna are sold each year in the United Slates and cousiiVned in numerous guises from casseroles to curries. The fact that tuna is high in protein and low in calories has placed it high on the lists of dieters. Hostesses have also dis- covered that tuna pureed with cream cheese, sour cream or yogurt makes a number of delicious cocktail pates and dips. We did not know until recently that tuna is also used in making soups, both hot and cold. Mixed with fresh vegeta- bles and a broth, it makes a filling first course or even a main dish for lunch. It is also being served in cold gaxpacho. For still another variation, here is a recipe for chilled Tuna and Avocado Soup. Tuna and Avocado Soup 2 ripe avocados 1 tsp. lemon juice 1 cup light cream 2 cans (6% or seven ozs.. each) tuna in vegetable oil 1 pt. chicken broth 2 tsps. chopped onion Va tsp. salt tsp. hot sauce (optional) Paprika or crumbled corn chips Peel avocados, removing pits. Cut into pieces and place in electric blender. Add lemon juice and cream. Cover and process at low speed till smooth. Turn into large bowl. Place tuna, chicken broth, onion, salt and hot sauce in electric blender, cover and process at low speed till smooth. Stir in avocado mix- ture. Chill thoroughly. Serve in small chilled soup bowls with dash of paprika or crumbled corn chips. Serves 10.
