Friday, August 23, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) StAK Page three EHC safety training session held —Photo by Dolores McBridc with Star camera If you wake up in a smoke-filled room—what would you do? Hope Fire Chief Jim Cobb advises as Mrs. Joe Willett acts out the situation. Blindfolded, Mrs. Willett crawls on hands and knees as close as possible to the wall, following the wall around to the door. The Fire Chief said smoke, with its death- causing gases, is the greatest killer in fires— not the flames. He treats his folks like tramps By Abigail Van Buren • & 1*74 by Chicago Tribunt-N. Y. Newt Synii.. Inc. DEAR ABBY: Last year, our eldest son moved out of state and got married. Eventually he called and invited us to visit him in his new, three-bedroom, air-conditioned home. After traveling over 500 miles, we arrived hot and weary, and were shown to our "room" —a windowless garage, with a cast-off mattress on the floor! No pillows, no apologies and no explanations. His father and I felt like two vagrants who had come for a handout. We estimated that in over 20 years, we have provided more than 7,000 clean beds and 20,000 nutritious meals to this ingrate, not to mention the scores of friends he brought home, who always got the best welcome we could offer. After two mornings of eating breakfast out (while he and his wife slept late), and after buying everyone's lunch and dinner and providing baby-sitting services, we made an excuse to leave rather then to stay, or tell them how hurt we were. Are we too thin-skinned? Or is this part of the new, casual lifestyle of the young? J DISENCHANTED DEAR DIS: Please don't blame the new, casual lifestyle of the young for your son and his wife's laziness, rudeness and inconsiderate treatment. (P.S. Alas! Not all twigs grow the way they are bent, Mother.) DEAR ABBY: What do you do when your wife always corrects you in public? PUT DOWN DEAR PUT: Tell her (in private) that you'd appreciate it if she'd cut it out. And if she doesn't —then tell her in public. DEAR ABBY: I am a 15-year-old girl who is pre-engaged to an 18-year-old guy. He wants to get married and so do I, but my parents refuse to sign for me. We have even considered eloping because we are very much in love and can't wait. We can't get married for at least three years, but we are so much in love that we can't control our emotions, if you know what 1 mean. We only went all the way a few times, but I know it will keep on happening because our love is so strong. .- i i t My mother never told me anything, Everything 1 know, 1 picked up on the street, and I'm really not even sure of my facts. How can 1 be sure 1 know everything I should? Can you recommend a booklet? I can't sign my name, but I 11 be looking for your answer in the paper. Thank you. I IN 1 *\.J V EJ DEAR IN: I don't know what responsibilities go with being "pre-engaged"- but you are sure to wind up "post-pregnant" if you don't stop the intimacies and or learn the facts. The Planned Parenthood people have some excellent literature for mothers who can't talk to their daughters. Ask your mother to contact them, and good luck CONFIDENTIAL TO CONNIE: Being "Number 2" is no better than being "Number 99" as long as "Number One" is still in the picture. Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lmsk.v Dr., Beverly Hills, Cal. 90121. Getting out of a burning building was the concern of E.H.

He strongly advised family fire drills and learning precautionary measures, avoiding deadly traps of superheated air and gas. The Fire Chief discussed alternate escape routes and encouraged making the family familiar with using the escape plan. Elmo Anderson, Instructor Fire Service, SW Technology Institute of East Camden, showed some causes of fire and ways a homemaker can guard against the threat of fire.

Use a muffin tin to make individual salad and dessert gelatin molds. In half the tins, mix grated vegetables with the gelatin and in the other half add '-Jit and/ or nuts. Presto! — you have both salad and dessert ready. With this swell gel idea, you can even "personalize" each portion to individual taste. (Tip: If you coat each tin with mayonnaise beforehand, mold will slide out easier.) Mr. and Mrs. Bill Jones entertained the Third District Arts and Crafts members at the Kountry Kitchen on August 20.

Helpful Hints The redder canned salmon is, the higher it is priced. Use the reddest variety for salad, the paler varieties for a loaf or patties. Cooked lentils make a thrifty and filling salad. Save the liquid in which you have cooked the lentils and add it to a barley soup. Because the mixture may look drab, you may want to add lots of minced parsley or scallion. —Support your local merchants.
