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 until the bitter end without cheating on her once, although I often was tempted Now I am 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. Thirteen years is long enough I ask only for one with stamina Thanks
..DEAR GEORGE: Call your friends — married and single — and let them knew that you are interested in dating. You'll be swamped. Find out what your 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.

NAUSEATED DEAR NAUSEATED: I don t know about humans, but monkeys have been known to pull the hair out of their heads and eat it when they are despondent and frustrated. I think your teacher needs help

WASHINGTON (AP) -Government market experts say consumers will have no trouble finding relatively large supplies of meat at supermarkets next month but warn that a little searching will In* needed to find canned vegetables and some other food items
But generally, says the agriculture department, simpers will have enough of most items to go around during May shopping trips The preview of next month's grocery store situation was announced Monday in a “Food Marketing Alert" by the department
The brief report was confined only to what USIBX experts see as the food supply situation and did not include predictions on prices or overall grocery costs
Agriculture Secretary Earl L Butz told a news conference last week, however, that consumers already have seen two-thirds of this year’s food price increase occur Prices are expected to go up “a bit more” the remainder of 1974. he said, but not at the rati* 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
“Vanned vegetable supplies stay well below normal,” 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 j season, will continue to be
“lighter than normal” in store supplies, the report said
Dairy products generally are expected to be amply available. but nonfat dry milk may continue “fairly tight” next month, the report said
“Dry bean and split pea supplies, in general, are inadequate because of strong demand and less output in 1973 than in 1972,” the report said. but added “May supplies of lentils for all uses are highest in four years for the month.”
In Modesto, ( alif , 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 c anned peaches, fruit cocktail, pears and apricots will reach their lowest level in 30 years during June
Arthur Heiser, president of Tillie Lewis Foods, Inc., of Stockton, Calif , said the same situation is true in the vegetable business
“Our warehouses are nearly empty now,” he said, “and we won t have anything left in them during May and June
