March 27, 1961: Matt Weinstock has a story about a penniless drunk who gets a bottle from a liquor store in the era when credit cards were a novelty. 
DEAR ABBY: I am married to a man who has a very ugly temper. The first time he hit me we had been married only three weeks and I was four months pregnant at the time.

His father used to beat his mother up so bad she would land in the hospital. He has a brother who slaps his wife around too. Is this a sickness that runs in their family? I never thought I could put up with the beatings I have taken (and over absolutely nothing). I don't want to raise our three children in a fatherless home, but what is a wife supposed to do when she is afraid to open her mouth for fear she'll get her teeth knocked out?
