HANDLED ARTICLES On their shopping excursion, the girls entered stores at the same time and stood close to each olher while they handled articles to draw allenljon. They then measured Ihe length of time it look for each to be served, noted how they were addressed and the assLs- lance each received. Over all, "rich'J Connie rx1- rcived service first in per cent of stores visited.

DEAK ANN LANDERS: My hat is off lo thai smart woman who has no guest room, no fold-up cots, and her sofas are too short (o sleep on. Her home is her castle, as i' should be not a free motel for slap-happy gypsies. Thai other nut who expressed delight at bedding down.and feed ing eight unexpected relatives for five days must have rocks in her head. She also must have a private timncl to the Chase Manhattan Bank. Thai's 80 extra meals, Lady, no counting breakfasts. Several years ago, when 1 had an extra bedroom, a group of invaders stormed my home. They brought huge appetities six pieces of luggage, a Russian wolfhound and a box of dog biscuits.

What you ar referring lo is called "inflation'' and smarter heads Ilia mine have Iried, without success, to find a solution. D1CAR ANN LANDERS: All my life I've been completely honest. Telling the truth was Ihe governing law in my ing-tp years. And now I am doing something worse than lymg and I'm a nervous wreck over it. I'm a Iliief. I lake money out of my husband's billfold. R. drinks like a fish. We have small children. I can't leave Ilicm to go lo work. He vill not mave out of lire bolide ;md refuses lo admit that liis drinking is a problem, When he comes home at night he falls inlo bed cockeyed drunk and makes no sense until the next day. The only money 1 can get is what I take out of his billfold. He never misses it because he can't remember what be spent. Thi.s way I can at least keep food on the table. U I u ailed for him lo give me money we'd starve. he has made a thief out of mo and I hatn it. I (nil myself this kind of stealing is honorable, but I know in my heart it isn't. help Rattle DKAH 1. 11.: No kind of stealing is honorable- and yo'J should not allow him to do Ibis lo you. In II.'s toiler mo- nictiLs he must surely realize lie is not giving you any money. What docs he think you arc living on? I suspect he knows what you've been doing. My advice is lo tell him and I'll IxM nothing changes, except that you will no longer feel like a fh.'ef. PAT FINLEY and STAFF WELCOME CECIL E.
