At Wit's End
By Ermo Bombeck
An actor whose name I’ve forgotten once said on a.
talk show, “Husbands and wives see one another at
the worst possible part of the day — a few minutes in
the mornings when they’re pressured and trying to
get on with their day, and in the evenings When they
have no more to give and are irritable and
exhausted.” ’ - ; ,
It’s true. How many of you have said. ‘‘I know I’m
late and I didn’t call, but you’re my wife (husband)
and I expect you to understand! ”
We all play havoc with the most precious, fragile,
important relationship we have—our family.
What would happen if a husband used the same
guidelines at home that he used in other relation-

Three feminine poets
share their inspiration

Copley News Service
Teens: I always enjoy introducing our poets who are
Tween 12 and 20. So it’s my pleasure to introduce Sharon
Schwab, 15, from Goshen, Ind., Karin Carlsen, 17, who lives
in Downey, Calif., and Darlene Gray, 20, who comes from
the Alamo city, San Antonio, Texas. Welcome.
Way In the midst of all my thoughts
I have a little voice that whispers
your name to every thought that enters
and leaves my brain.
Although it’s a pity for this little ■ ’
voice as it often gets so confused and
it tries so hard to convince my brain
that it’s only wasUng thoughts.
But this little voice doesn’t realize
it’s no longer owned by my brain, but - ‘
has been taken over for quite some time
by the master of all, “My Heart.”
Darlene Gray _<£*»
MY FRIEND - THE WOODS
Run, roam the hills
They call you
They speak when you’re alone.
The wind is her voice
The streams are her tears
The flowers, her heart
The woods are there.
Be content for they are your friends.

early, ugly wrinkling
DEAR DR. LAMB - Every
time 1 look in the mirror I am
shocked by what I see. I mean
those ugly wrinkles that make
you look old before your time.
I’ve got crow’s feet around
my eyes .and creases across
my forehead. I know without
these I would look 15 years
younger. I’m onto 42 aAd have
a good figure. My doctor said
it was because I got too much
sun and he suggested that I
limit my time in the sun.
Well, he’s right. I’ve always
enjoyed a beautiful tan every
summer. And I’ll probably go
right on getting out in the sun
because that is part of enjoy-
ing summer. If I want to get
outdoors, is there anything 1
can do to limit the damage to
my skin? I know there are lots
of sun lotions but I’m not sure
what to use and if they will
really do any good.
DEAR READER — A sun-
tan may look healthy but it is
your skin’s reaction to injury.
The injury is from solar radia-
tion. The damage is in the
deep layers of the skin and it
affects the elastic fibers that
keep yoUr skin taut. v ;
,, People who are particularly
sensitive to* the sun should use
a sun screen all year long, not
just in the summer. You can
use a physical blocker. These
are pastes or Salves. Of these,
dioxide, kaolin, fettic oxide
ftiid bentonite if® Also ctood.
Many people don’t flke the
pastes and like the dear liq-
uid preparations better. The
important ingredient here is
acid).'It acts chemically with
the cells in your skin to
decrease their sensitivity to
The gel products are less
likely to dry dot your skin; the
liquid preparations often con-
tain alcohol. Two geLproducts
are Pre-Sun and PABA-Gel.
A helpful hint is to use the
PABA one to two houra
before sun exposure. That will
give it time to interact chemi-
cally with your cells. If you
apply it just before you go out
it will not be as effective.
I. am sending you The
Health Letter number 7-10,
Your Skin; Sun, Aging, Spots
and Canter. Skin cancer is
definitely increased in people
who have lots of sun exposure.
That may get worse in the

Once you have wrinkles the
only thing you can do for
yourself is to use moisturiz-
ers. One of the best is petrola-
tum (Vaseline). The heavy oily
mixture will trap moisture in
your skin and cause wrinkles
to disappear. It is better than
most expensive moisturizers
with fancy names.
Besides the sun, the other
common factor that Causes
wrinkles is cigarette smoking.
