POLLY'S POINTERS Bachelor, 25, wants to adopt a child By Polly Cramer Polly's Problem^ DEAR POLLY - I am a bachelor, 25, who wants to adopt a child. I have read in some magazines that other single males have done this but I do not know how to go about it. I love children, know this is a great responsibility but am willing to assume it and feel I could do the job but would like to know how one goes about this. I do plan to get married some day when I find the right girl. I will be looking for an answer to my problem. - TERRY. DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with buying an expensive coat and then finding there are no extra buttons attached. Often the buttons almost "make" the looks of a garment When one is lost replacements can cheapen the looks of a coat that may have cost over $100. It seems that when paying that much there should be at least two extra buttons included. I am also peeved about a recent experience trying to remove the price list that came attached to the window of a new car. Did 1 have the devil-of-a-time getting it scraped off with a razor blade - a little job that took about 45 minutes work. - MRS.K.H. DEAR POLLY - and Lillie - I used 100 per cent moth crystals to remove a musty smell from valuable old papers. Generously sprinkle crystals in a brown paper bag, put the old papers in the bag and seal it. Leave for a few weeks. When opened the smell should be gone. - DOT. DEAR POLLY - Lillie who has '.he old papers and Anne who has a cape with musty odors could put them in a box with that well-advertised product used in cat litter boxes. It is a splendid deodorant and 1 have found it has. proven effective in so many cases. - MRS.D.A. DEAR POLLY - When you have a vase that smells bad from'flowers that have been left in it too long fill with water and add two or three of those fizzy tablets we take for colds. Let stand a few hours atid rinse. The residue is gone and the vase has a fresh lemony smell. - SHIRLEY DEAR POLLY — If the pages of your cook book always seem to be flipping when you are trying to follow a recipe fasten it in place by putting a large rubber band over the opened pages and the back of the book. - CARRIE. M-.WM'AI'KK f.N I b.Kl'hlMv -. '.VN Doing own shades saves dollars By Joanne Schreiber Take a look at your lampshades. Are they dingy, dirty, dented? If so, they can drag down the looks of a whole room. It's an easy matter to refurbish a shade and add a crisp, fresh decorating note to your home. A good, fabric-covered lampshade from a custom lamp shop is an expensive proposition. You have two inexpensive approaches to your lampshade problem: you can either buy an inexpensive shade and decorate it with laces and trims or you can strip the covering From your original frame and recover it with new fabric. All sorts of trimmings are available to decorate your lampshades. The experts at St. Louis Trimmings suggest peasant braid for a tailored burlap shade, brightly colored gimp braid for a drum shade, ribbon and eyelet for a boudoir lamp and venice lace with pearl-studded metallic braid for a formal shade. You can even recreate the Tiffany era with deep silky fringe at the bottom of the shade. If you plan to make your own fabric cover, test the fabric first, by holding it to the light to see the effect of the light on the texture or pattern. Lightweight, firmly woven cottons are appropriate almost anywhere. Burlap Lampshades can be dainty or tailored, depending up9n choice of trimmings. Cover them yourself or add custom touches to store-bought shades. (Crown Originals) is a good choice for a boyV room. Taffeta or faille may be used in a formal living, room setting. If you select a-patterned material be sure' the pattern is repeated elsewhere in the room and, use a plain trim. A plain fabric may take a decorative trim, but that, too, should be repeated for a coordinated effect. It's easy to cover a lampshade. Basically, it's Bride's broken beak breaks bank By Abigail Van Buren i 1974 by Chicago Trlbune-N. Y. News Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: We drove 500 miles to attend the wedding of a relative. Our son was tb"15e"in the bridal party. The wedding was to take place at 4 P.M. on Saturday. On the Friday night before the wedding, the bride and groom got into a fight and the groom broke the bride's nose so the wedding was cancelled. What do we do with the wedding gift we were going to take to the church? Who pays for the tuxedo our son rented for the occasion and never got to wear? And how about the motel bill? I think the bride's parents who invited us here for nothing should help us out. Should we ask them to? STUCK IN ILLINOIS DEAR STUCK: That's what you are. Stuck. Stuck for the wedding gift—unless you can return it. You're stuck for sure for your son's rented tuxedo, and you're stuck for the motel bill. And no, don't ask the bride's parents to help you out. They've got enough trouble trying to comfort a bride with a broken nose. DEAR ABBY. My husband died very suddenly not long ago. It was a terrible shock as he had been in the best of health and had no warning whatsoever. We had 43 good years together, which is more than many couples have, but somehow, I still feel cheated. I was in such a state of shock when this happened that my eldest daughter took me to her home where I stayed for three weeks. When I returned to my own home, I was stunned to find that every trace of my beloved husband had been removed. Not one thing belonging to him remained! My two daughters and one son (all married) took it upon themselves to go through my house and dispose of all their father's clothes. I broke right down and wept. They tried to explain that they thought they had done me a big favor. Abby, wasn't it MY right to dispose of my late husband's things in my own good time? Perhaps I wanted some memories of him around. It's too late in my case, but please print this for others who one day may presume to do what my children did. CRUSHED DEAR CRUSHED: Please consider the motivation. They undoubtedly wanted to spare you what they thought would be an agonizing task. But you make a good point. Perhaps they should have asked. DEAR ABBY: I am a 21-year-old male college student. I am being married in the near future. Both of us would like to have a big wedding and invite our many friends, but the cost would empty her parents' pocketbook. My fiancee and I feel that the tradition that says her parents must foot the bill for the wedding is entirely outmoded, but I'm afraid her folks would feel hurt if my parents offered to chip in. As it stands now, my future in-laws feel a bit inadequate alongside my well-to-do-family. If you can come up with a solution, it would be a most welcome early wedding gift. DOOMEDG ROOM DEAR DOOMED: Why not break with tradition in the interest of common sense? Perhaps your future in-laws wouldn't be as "hurt" as you think if your parents chipped in for the kind of wedding you want. Ask them. If they refuse, go the traditional route, and after you return from your honeymoon, your parents can throw a party fot you and all your friends. CONFIDENTIAL TO MARK; Lose her "gelt" complex. She has a Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. Hate to write letters?

(NKWSI'AI'KK ENTEKI'HISK ASSN I Miss Patton shower honoree A shower was held Saturday, August 24, at the Douglas building in honor of Naida Earl Patton, bride-elect of William Randel Vines. Mrs. Nanci O'Berry, sister of the groom- elect was hostess. The honoree was attired in a double knit aqua colored pantsuit. Other special guests were Naida's mother, Mrs. Alice Patton and her grandmother, Mrs. Clayton Palmer; Mrs. Martha Vines and Mrs. Pauline Ratcliffe, mother and grandmother of the groom- elect. Decorations and gifts all carried out a yellow and white theme, the chosen wedding colors of the bride-elect. A bride doll was among the decorations. Yellow and white embossed cake and lime punch were served to approximately twenty-five guests. Tips for the homemaker START AT THE TOP Insulation in the ceiling (attic floor) of a horns does the most good. Up to 25 per cent of winter heat loss and 40 per cent of summer heat gain takes place through the ceiling. Insulating the ceiling with mineral wool blankets usually is a simple do-it-yourself job. ROCK AND GLASS—BOTH MINERAL "Mineral wool" house insulation can be either fiber glass or rock wool. Both are inorganic materials. PLASTIC KEEPS HOME WARMER If a home doesn't have storm windows, clear plastic can be tacked or taped in place as an efficient and inexpensive substitute. It will reduce the amount of heat a home loses in winter or gains from the outdoors in summer. INSULATE GARAGE WALL If a home has an attached garage, the wall between it and the house should be insulated by stapling mineral wool blankets between the studs. The vapor barrier should face the house. Although the mineral wool fibers won't burn, the insulation should be covered with gypsum board or some other non-combustible material as an extra safety precaution and to protect the insulation from damage. Program focuses on VD That Hempstead County ranked fifth in the state in reported cases of gonorrhea was a fact not easily ignored by the Hempstead County Consumer Health Education Advisory Committee — particularly when the committee learned of many harmful effects, such as sterility, arthritis (crippling), blindness, and death. Hempstead County residents were seemingly unaware of the VD problem. Through the committee's efforts of planning and executing an educational project, more are now aware of the possible harmful effects and how to treat the diseases. Dolores McBride, county Extension agent - home economics leader, reports that with a target audience of persons 25-years-of-age and under, the Hempsieaa i-ounty committee pursued educational opportunities, including a workshop on VD for all teachers, except first grade, in the Hope schools; an awareness study in class followed with students attending by choice; VD Education Week, including newspaper articles and radio publicity and educational literature placed in popular teen spots and other public locations; letters to club groups announcing the VD program and offering speakers to the groups; two radio panel shows entitled "Straight Talk on VL>" were broadcast during "rock time" featuring a call-in question and answer portion. The Hempstead County Cooperative Extension Office organized the County Consumer Health Education Advisory Committee to better educate the consumer about health problems and create awareness of health resources and facilities available. Technical assistance was secured from the public health unit, Extension health specialist, and local physicians. Reports indicate an increase in the number of persons being tested and treated for VD and a better informed public. Miss McBride suggests to those looking for health programs to check with the County Extension Office.
