DK,AK ABBY: My problem is my neighbor who lives directly above me in an elegant townhouse 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 Christmas, New Year’s day and Sundays. Ile 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 liedroom, which is over mine.
I don’t have to be out of bed until 7 and it irritates me to be awakened two hours early every day Once I am awake, I cannot go hack to sleep.
I've tried everything. I invited 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 In* 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 suggested 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.
DEAR MRS. S.: I d take the lawyer’s advice, after which I'd ask my druggist to recom mend the best earplugs available. If that fails, invite your landlady to spend the night with you and share a rude awakening.
. Problems? You’ll feel better if you get it.off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No 69700. Us An geles, Calif. 96(169. enclose stamped, self-addressed en velope. please.

Widows Who Remarry Face Economic Loss
IDU OR S NOJI flus is tho second of two articles on tho actual effort remarriage has on widow s benefits
By Lorry Alexander
Cherokee Doily I imes
< IIKKOKKK, Iowa (AP) — Widows who arc considering remarriage are often faced will) loss of benefits they have been receiving
Various sources were presented with two hypothetical situations regarding widow s benefits and what effect remarriage has on them.
The situations were:
— A widow, 66, is presently living on her deceased hus hand'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 through her working years. What income change, if any, occurs if she remarries?
A widow's remarriage after age HH will never terminate her entitlement to widow’s benefits,” according to the social security administration. “However, the amount which she is receiving as a widow may change.”
Widow s Benefits
I he administration said anyone receiving widow s benefits may want to contact the nearest social security office regarding the exact monetary change which will result if she remarries.
It said remarriage will have no effect (til participation in Medicare.
“Marriage or remarriage has absolutely no effect on the amount a single woman may he receiving on her own account nor does it have any effect on her participation iii Medicare,” said the administration.
The Iowa Employment Security commission said if a widow were drawing benefits based (til 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, HH years of age drawing her personal IPERS benefits, could marry and continue to draw them.
I nder 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 hoard said with regard to the HH-year-old widow, “her railroad retirement annuity would cease upon remarriage and be replaced by a social security spouse benefit bused 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.”
II instead she were a social security widow beneficiary, lier widow s benefits would lie replaced by a spouse’s benefit which would “almost certainly be considerably smaller.” the board said
“In the ease of a retired woman employe, her railroad retirement employe annuity would he 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 he 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.
Tuna Fish: Versatile, Nutritious
