Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 'ear By Abigail Vag Biren DEAR ABBY: I need your help to get my wife buck. I realized how much 1 loved her'until I lost her. Maybe you. heard about the anthrax epidemic that hit the cattle in Texas this summer, Abby.' I was right In ,the mid- dle of it. I was near broke and desperate to sell a herd before my section of the state was quarantined. My wife told me it was wrong to sell cattle without waiting to find out if they had the disease. 1 knew she was right, but I needed the money. I told her I was going to .sell anyway, and she stood Bright up to me and said she'd call the authorities' if 1 moved one steer off my land. That's'wheh I hit her, Abby. 1 knocked her down on the kitchen floor. I could have cut off. my hand the minute it happened, 'but like a'" fool I walked out of the house and left her lying there. I guess I must have walked around for an hour talking to myself. When I came back I was ready to get down on my knees, beg, her io forgive me, and promise not to deal the steers, but she was gone. I called her relatives. Nobody knew where she was, -or else they wouldn't tell me. Abby, I can't live without that woman. I've loved her since she was 16. That was the only time 'I ever raised my hand to her in the 27 years we've been married. She reads your column every day, so maybe she'll read this, wherever she is. Ask her to come back home, Abby? HEARTSICK DEAR HEARTSICK: You've done it belter than I ever could.' DEAR ABBY: My formerly favorite nephew who lives in another state was married last June. I sent him a generous check for a wedding gift. I heard nothing .from him, but noticed that -when the: .bank cancelled checks, .the above-mentioned check was among them. I recall how I .laughed when I read in your'column' that a bridal, couple, had received, a check for a wedding gift, and on the back it and scribbled, "Thanks." Not a proper thank-you, but it was more than I got. TICKED OFF IN TULSA Tte Cedar Haplds Gazelle: MM., Ott. 2. H7I o Anne, Mark: Personalities Changing By Mt Bradley LONDON A year after their wedding, Princess Anne and Army Ciipt. Mark Phillips appear to be adjust- ing-to married life, but some say both of their personalities have changed a bit. Once described iui snobbish and moody, the young prin- cess has mellowed since the elaborate nuptial Nov. 11. 1973, In Westminster Abbey. Sht wears her hair longer and looser mid dresses more fem- ininely. Before, some Journalists said Anne was ever ready with u sharp rebuke., Reporters who had caught the venom of her tongue were continuously on the prowl for yet another compromising princess "in- cident." Likewise, the handsome captain of the Queen's Dra- goon Guards has changed. When Introduced to Britain in a television Interview a year ago, he struggled to mumble a few replies.. Now he Is ob- viously more confident ul pub- lic gatherings. of course, In- suffered from nerves, but now I think he enjoys public occa- said one friend. Whereas Anno once had to whisper a few words of pro- tocol In Mark's car, he Is now generally on his own. The 26-year-old captain still seems happier at home, among army circles or on horseback. Friends say lie Is determined to lead a simple life and has no overwhelming desire to be given a title. A title Is almost a certainty, however, since Queen Eliza- beth II is not expected to allow her first grandchild to bo born a commoner. A nursery has been pre- pared In the couple's home, but a longtime friend of the princess'says: "I can't picture her having children in a hurry." Since their marriage, Anne and Mark have lived In a five- room home at Sandhurst Itary Academy where Mark Is stationed. They have had the Queen to tea, and enjoy a night out on the town every so often. But their socializing has been limited. If. Mark's annual salary is'not enough, they can always fall back on Anne's yearly Income.

Thirty- Second and Oakland Road NE Once Going Blind, She Now Drives Car JENISON, Mich. (UPI) Mrs. Joyce Van Tubergen quit her job as a waitress 23 years ago but wouldn't tell' her bosses why she took off her apron. The reason was that she couldn't read the prices on the menu. Mrs. Van Tubergen was going blind. Now 42, she is driv- ing her own car, because of what she calls a "miracle" transplants of the corneas of both eyes. Two painful operations replaced damaged corneas and a 13-year healing process has restored her vision. A mother'of three, she passed her driving tests and received her license a month ago. The local doctor who treated her recommended she seek help from the University of Michigan hospital as her blind- ness became more pronounced. "I never heard of. transplants she said. "It was just an unbelievable feeling to think that there was just a 'dim chance to function again as a normal person. All I could think of was independence, and how it would feel to be free." Her right cornea was replaced 13 years ago, the left five years later. But it wasn't until a little more than a month ago that her vision reached the clearness that allowed her to pass1 the driver's test. Technically, the condition is called keralocoponus. To those afflicted, the meaning is gradual blindness. Conical protrusions from-the center of the cornea eventually expand and burst, causing the eyes to lose fluid and sight.
