Page 7Dear Abby
DK AR ABBY: I am not rich, neither am I poor. I’ve always contributed to the charities I feel are deserving, and nobody has to remind me to make my annual contribution, but things have now gotten out of hand.
Irately I have been deluged with what appear to be “bills” from numerous well-known organiza tions, pleading that they are desperately in need of funds. Yesterday, I received 16 requests from charities
— yes, 16 — with urgent "please help us now” letters, of which 12 were third and fourth requests! I felt as though I was being billed for a debt that was long overdue.
I am aware that charities need funding, hut I am so annoyed at this point, I am ready to toss all of these letters into the wastepaper basket without even opening the envelopes
— even though some may contain a 22 cent postage stamp that could be used for another purpose
Abby, please get this message across. These people need to know how turned off some of us get when we are ...
DUNNED TO DEATH
DEAR DUNNED: I couldn’t agree with you more. But please don’t quit giving to the charities of your choice because of those who dun you to death with high* pressure tactics.
DEAR ABBY: My .r»8-year-old husband has a habit of sitting sideways at the table when we are eating. He always has turned his chair sideways, and now the chilReader Hates Being Hounded By Charities Chasing Funds
dren, ages 27, 22 and 19, are doing exactly the same thing. This is especially annoying when we have company for dinner.
Would it be wrong to tell my family to please sit the proper way, or leave the table?
DEAK K.A.K.: Yes, it would be wrong. However, you could tell them before your guests arrive to please sit properly at the dinner table. And by the way, if your husband has always sat that way, your chances of breaking that irritating habit are slim. But you could work on the 19-year-old.
DEAR ABBY: I am a widow, so family means a lot to me. My sister, whom I’ll call .limn, is married. Hers is not a happy marriage, hut she has tried hard to make it work. .loan asked me to receive mail for her at my address, and I agreed. She’s corresponding with “Jim,” a former boyfriend. Ile is also married, and they see each other occasionally and maintain contact by mail. When I see how happy .loan is when she gets a letter from .Jim, it does my heart good because she gets so little happiness from her husband.
Well, the inevitable happened Her husband found one of those letters .loan had carelessly left in the bathroom Although it was addressed to me, he read it and became very angry He confronted .loan, they talked it out and she promised to end all contact with
Jim. He forgave her, but he refuses to speak to me or have me in his house. He hangs up on me when I call, and I am never included in anything they do together.
Joan tried to reason with him, but he is very stubborn. She is forgiven. Meanwhile I am being punished. What advice have you for me?
OUT IN THE COLD IN WISCONSIN DEAR OUT: Try to put it out
of your mind. You can’t change anyone but yourself. Unfair? Yes. But you are paying dearly for having been a party to a sneaky business in the first place. I hope your sad story will prevent someone else from making that mistake.
CONFIDENTIAL TO DOWN IN THE DUMPS IN MONTGOMERY, ALA.: Nobody said it better than
Dale Carnegie: “The tendency to seldom think of what we have but always of what we lack is the greatest tragedy on earth Count your blessings — not your troubles!”
DEAR ABBY: What do you say to a person who calls you on the telephone while she is eating an apple, potato chips or hard candy?
The sound of her chewing ai chomping grates on my nerve Also it’s hard for me to understand her when she talks while shi s eating
DEAR HILLBILLY: Say;
“Goodbye. C all me back when you’ve finished eating.”

A very difficult kind of stage offering opens Circle Arts Theatre's 19th season come Feb. 5.
And A Nightingale Sang is a humorous yet poignant look at an English family during World War II. It spans a five-year period of living and loving played out against a backdrop of air raid sirens and the sinister whine of falling bombs.
"British playwright, C P. Taylor, doesn’t dwell on the horror of war, however, but instead shows us the resiliency of a people living their lives in a business-as-usual manner. They’re ordinary people, yet remarkable, under the circumstances. and very endearing,” said director Elisabeth Elliott.
The family consists of blue-collar worker George Stott, who sings away his off-duty hours, much to his wife's annoyance; his spouse, Puggy Stott, whoso attachment to the church and things religious Is the focus of her life; their youngest daughter. Joyce, who raises the state of indecision to
an art form, their older daughter. Helen, who serves as the family's rock of Gibraltar. and Andy, the feisty grandfather who puts more faith in animals than people As part of their lives, young British soldier Erie wages a steady battle to win the indecisive Joyce, while his older buddy Norman is drawn into a deep love af fair with Helen Cast as the romantic leads of Helen and Norman are Roberta Elliott and Jim Schmidt Other members of the Stott family are: Marion Clark as Peggy. Lewis Sarkozi as George. E. Lynn Burkett as Joyce, and Gary Pemberton as Andy, the grandfather. Robby Houde protrays Joyce’s young husband Eric Performances are scheduled (or a three-weekend run beginning with the First-Nighters Champagne Gala on Feb. 5.
