When the Bakers moved to California, Mr. Baker became the maintenance supervisor in Temple City and Alhambra schools. Mr. Baker is now retired and does upholstering.

DEAR READERS: I recently said my last goodby to one of the dearest, most gentle and soft-spoken gentlemen I've ever known —David Brodkey. He was also my brother-in-law, having been married for over 40 years to my sister, Helen, the eldest (and prettiest) of the four Friedman girls.
Dave spent his 66th birthday in the hospital, fighting a losing battle against lung cancer. He was lucky!?). He went fast. Three months.
You’re wondering, "Did he smoke?" Like a chimney! Dave had been a three-pack-a-day man for over 45 years.
Didn't he have periodic checkups and chest X-rays? He did, but nothing showed up in his X-rays until he went into the hospital for minor surgery for something totally unrelated to the cause of his death.
Oh, Dave had a "touch of" emphysema and a "little heart warning" a few years back, so why didn’t his DOCTOR insist that he quit smoking then? Because his doctor also smoked heavily.
I know that God gives us life, and God takes it away, but I can't help feeling that this beautiful man could have lived many more years had he not become addicted to tobacco. And addicted he was!
His craving for nicotine was almost as enslaving as heroin to a junky or alcohol to an alcoholic.
Times without number he would develop a cough and try to "taper off." He would then allow himself only IO cigarettes a day. But after he'd smoked his limit, he’d "bum" an extra cigarette or two, and soon he'd be back to the old routine. (He often said. "I don’t really SMOKE them, I just light them, and they burn in the ashtray.")
Being a natural "reformer," over the years I sent Dave everv stop-smoking gimmick and gadget I came across. He tried them all, but none of them worked for him.
How come some people smoke up a storm and live to be IOO? I don't know. (Maybe they build up an "immunity" to nicotine.) And how come some people who have nev er smoked develop lung cancer? I don't know the answer to that, either. But I do know that an overwhelming percentage of those who develop lung cancer and heart disease have been heavy smokers.
Not everyone who develops lung cancer dies from it. Some are lucky enough to survive surgery and live with one lung (for example, a former heavy smoker, that lovable redhead, Arthur Godfrey). Others have had laryngectomies (the severing of the vocal chords), after which the patient learns to "talk" by swallowing air and "belching" it up into audible sounds. (The handsome veteran actor, Bill Gargan, another notoriously heavy smoker, has lived with this for many years.)
I have devoted a great deal of space in my column to the evils of smoking. (Perhaps more than some of my smoking readers have found tolerable.) I've also frequently needled those who inflict their habit on innocent non-smokers. (I'm informed there is now substantial evidence that breathing second-hand tobacco fumes is almost as damaging to the lungs as is smoking the weed itself.)
It's too late for my brother-in-law, and for countless thousands who couldn’t break the nicotine habit, but will you do yourself (and me) a favor? If you don’t smoke—PLEASE don’t star And if you DO smoke, don’t quit trying to quit until you’ve won! I love you.
Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, LA., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

White rug needs professional care
DEAR POLLY — I made a great mistake when I bought a white living room rug, since I have two small children. Now it looks almost gray I wonder if there is any spray paint one could use on a IOO per cent nylon rug. — MRS.S.
DEAR MRS.S. — I know of bo tach spray aor of any place that will dye carpets any more. The varying fibers la today's rags and carpets coaid make this a rather hazardous Job. The best advice I have to offer is to have the rag professionally cleaned and sprayed with a soil retardant. Mrs. S.’s letter should serve as • warning to other young mothers. It Is often necessary to sacrifice one’s particular color preferences when there are children to be considered. — POLLY.
DEAR POLLY — I had a lot of trouble with snails in my garden, but found that table salt will kill them and still not hurt my plants. — RI LL A DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve concerns the way garden seeds are packed. There are too many seeds in one package when there are only two people in a family Even if one only plants half the package, the other half is wasted The seeds will then be too old to plant next year It seems there could be smaller packages available for those who want them We give produce from our garden away and freeze some, but we would prefer planting a smaller quantity of seeds and have a greater variety. — RUBY D.
DEAR POLLY — Sylvia can use that collection of buttons to make "pictures". I had one made many years ago that is in an antique black and gold frame This "picture" is a basket of flowers The basket was made with old underwear buttons, though any kind that look alike or are similar could be used The basket could even be of stripes or plaids The pretty colorful buttons are used to make the flowers These can be sewn or glued, depending on the type of button, to a black cloth background that is stretched over heavy cardboard A car, plane or rocket design could be made for a boy's room and a doll or other appropriate design made for a girl I am very proud of mine and it is a real conversation piece — MRS. E.O.P.
DEAR READERS — Just a few weeks ago. I taw a striking piece of contemporary art that was merely a geometric design made with matching white tear drop-shaped buttons. It was very striking. — POLLY.

Perhaps you remember when your mother said to you "Young man you are getting too big for your britches.’’ This was her way of saying that you were trying to be more grown up than you could handle.
Perhaps you I were trying tot defy her or your father's authority.
This expression probably derived from the fact that it was not uncommon for youngsters to outgrow their clothes before they were worn out. In other words they were getting too big for their britches
It was not uncommon for kids to think that they were more capable of self determination than they really were. They would often get to where they felt that they knew more than their parent!. This has been a failing throughout time. They would have a tendency to overestimate their ability and authority.
Some will recall the time when boys wore knickers until their parents thought them sufficiently grown up to wear long pants This was supposed to be the symbol of approaching manhood. In a sense it separated the men from the bojys. The boy who had to keep on wearing short pants after his classmates were wearing long trousers was indeed humiliated.
The expression "Too big for your britches," might also be applied to those adults who acquired a sense of importance beyond their capabilities. A man in business might decide that he could make more money if he enlarged his store, but not have the capability to manage toe larger enterprise |>roj)erly and wind up going
An athlete might become so impressed with his ability that he neglects to put out his best effort. In other words he would become overconfident to the extent that he would lose the game.
