FHday, September 13* 1974 (ARK.) STAR Page three EHC officer training —Photo by Dolores McBride with Star camera EXTENSION HOMEMAKER officers learn what is expected of club officers and hear,suggestions for successful meeting and ways to encourage club expansion, interest and leadership. County Council executive officers of the Extension Homemakers met at the Experiment Station hut on Wednesday for a day of officer training. Each brought a favorite dish and the recipe for it. Before lunch, Penny Gary, Women's Program Director for KXAR, spoke to the group and encouraged them to use radio to create public awareness of what's happening in their club. She described radio as a public service concentrating on local news. She also encouraged the leaders to send news, written legibly, reminding them that the announcer uses a live mike with little time for deciphering. She added that public service announcements were welcomed and the station preferred they be personally recorded. Annette Rogers, Hope Star Women's New Editor, solicited local news "that women will be interested in". She welcomed news about local people and activities encouraging the clubs to .concentrate., on items characteristic of their club such as a successful project or involvement of their members. She advised giving variety to the news and preferred the news while it is still news. Following lunch the board of directors met and completed plans for the canning show to be held during the Third District Fair. They also made plans for the Christmas Fair on November 1. Sardis was welcomed as a to be,organized. ANNETTE ROGERS, HOPE STAR HOMES By VIVIAN BROWN i AP New§f§atures Wrjtsr Would you pay $7.^00 for a dilapidated second house that might turn into a $22,000 remodeling venture? Probably not. But if you didn't suspect the ultimate cost of shaping it up, you might. And, like author Jo Coudert who took on such a risk, you might not be sorry. She admits she was startled when the cost was tallied. But the money had oozed away in driblets, she explained, and "It would have gone for other things anyway." Meanwhile her investment has doubled in value and she has bought out her less enthusiastic partner in the real estate venture. "Remodeling costs more than you would think and somehow the expenses are in unexpected directions. You find a nice window and it costs $500. Or suddenly a front door is $100. Hardware is expensive. Lumber costs a lot." It is all worth it "If you honor the integrity of an old house. You can wind up with something beautiful," she insisted in an interview. She was discussing her newest book, "Go- Well," the story of her efforts to buy the house and remodel it. She even managed to get beautiful mileage out of scraps. For example, broken marble pieces picked up at old buildings were used on the floor of a bathroom (in flagstone-like patterns with cement in between), on a terrace (with gravel in between) and on some table tops. Another terrace was made from bricks of the old chimneys by setting them on cold ashes and sort of raking the ashes in between. A hands-and-knees job, the brick terrace didn't even heave in winter, she said. Chunks of plaster were used to make a driveway — they made an excellent surface after they were driven over and rained upon. And old bridge planks were pressed into service for many things, including becoming forms for the brick terrace. They had been quoted some "fantastic prices" for heating systems and eventually chose electric heat on the advice of the carpenter who saw to it that they were properly insulated for it. A well was drilled, a septic tank system was installed and a bathroom was added to the house. A "great discovery" was the material that rejuvenated their nail-ridden floors that couldn't be sanded successfully. They used a heavy yellow liquid "ground coat" with a varnish stain for a beautiful finish. Clean Hair Always rinse salt or chlorinated water out of your hair after swimming. The chemicals in these substances can dry out hair and the scalp. Paint Cleanup If you get turpentine on your hands after working with paint, rub a twist of lemon rind over your fingers and nails to eliminate the odor.

John Cain Chapter DAR- Mrs, Keesey speaker Mrs. Joe Keesey spoke on "The Past Is Prelude To The Future", at the D.A.R. luncheon meeting held Wednesday the llth at the Holiday Inn. The following comments are excerpts from her speech: "Year after year we observe Constitution day and week. On these occasions we either point with pride to the "blessings of liberty" thus far secured to the American people by the Constitution, or we mourn the erosion of constitutional values and principles that has already taken place. In either event, we cannot much longer ignore the unhappy fact that there are in this Country those who have neither reverence for, nor any real knowledge of the Constitution. "—the Constitution should be our civil Bible exactly as the Holy Bible is our spiritual guide. ••—freedom is still the responsibility of the American people, now and in the future. Until we plug the Constitutional loophole represented by the treaty clause, constitutional government, national sovereignty and our freedoms are in jeopardy. This is the challenge we face today. May it be our constant endeavor to keep the Constitution supreme in America-American, sovereign and free. With God's help, WE CAN." Following Mrs. Keesey's talk the ritual was conducted by the chaplain Mrs. Voss and regent, Mrs. Formby. Mrs. Klipsch read the president general's message and reports were heard from the chairman of schools, Mrs. Keck. Other business was also transacted. A most interesting letter was read thanking the DAR for financial aid to her education. The letter was from a little Indian girl in Springfield, S.D.

N«WJ Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: I am 50 and my husband, Walter, is 52. Two years ago he had a heart attack, but he recovered and is now enjoying excellent health. Walter plays tennis at least three times every week, so he's not exactly an invalid, right? However, when it comes to lovemaking, I am told not to "bother him" because he doesn't want to take any chances on damaging his heart. Before his coronary, he wasn't the world s greatest lover, but now he has an excuse. (Or has he?) Please ask one of your medical consultants and let me know. Don't advise me to ask Walter's doctor because he is also Walter's tennis buddy. Thanks. MISSING SOMETHING DEAR MISSING: I consulted Dr. Donald B. Effler, the famous Cleveland Clinic heart surgeon, who 'is cooler than Denton Cooley and hotter than Michael DeBakey. His response: "If Walter, age 52, is enjoying regular tennis, but will not take care of his homework, three possibilities come to mind: a) Walter's got something going on the outside, b) Walter's wife has lost something that must have looked good to him n number of years ago or c) Walter is one of those rare men who loses interest in HCX nt 52. In nny event, judging from his wife's letter, Walter's past heart attack is most likely a phony excuse. "Very few coronary patients are advised against sexual activity at home. This simple observation, made long ago, gave rise to the aphorism, 'There's nothing dangerous about sex, it's the chasing after it that can kill you.' " DEAR ABBY: Our 27-year-old son is a college graduate who lives and works a few hundred miles from us. Two years ago he met a very nice girl three years his junior, and they have gone together ever since. My husband and I hope to see them get married —since they are devoted to each other and are certainly not too Large arts and crafts exhibit planned at Fair Paintings, and crafts including hand thrown pottery, ceramics, leather work, copper sculpture, glass weaving, candle making, tole painting, needlecraft, decoupage, and sand art, are just a few of the many items to be shown by members and non-members of the Art Association at the annual exhibition during the Fair 'and Livestock Show in Hope September 23 through 29.

Recipe of the week NEVER FAIL DUMPLINGS 1% cups flour Vfe teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons shortening 1 egg beaten 5 tablespoons water Mix above ingredients, when a soft dough, divide in 3 parts. Roll out very thin and let sheets of dough dry about 20 minutes. Cut in small strips and drop in broth of chicken which has been cooked tender and removed from bones. Cook dumplings until tender. Add one boiled egg that has been chipped fine and stir lightly. This is a chicken stretcher. Will make a small chicken serve a large number of people. They are good with new Spring potatoes, also. Ed. Note: This is a recipe sent by Mrs. George Hutson of Waco, Tex. Clip and Save STORAGE OF POTATOES Store in a cool, dry, dark place that's well ventilated. At ideal temperatures (45 to 50 degrees), potatoes will keep well for several weeks. At room temperature, potatoes will keep well for one week. Temperatures over 50 degrees encourage sprouting and shriveling. Sprouting potatoes can still be used but there is some waste; break off or cut out sprouts; it may be desirable to peel before cooking. Avoid prolonged exposure of potatoes to light, which causes them to turn green. This greening produces a bitter flavor. If greening occurs, the area affected should be pared off before the potato is used. Potatoes should not be refrigerated. At temperatures below 40 degrees, potatoes develop a sweet taste, a result •of some of the potato's starch turning to ^ugar. This increase in sugar also causes the potato lo darken when cooked. —Obey all traffic laws. HINTS Resist the temptation to overbuy if you want to save money. Even canned foods lose flavor and texture in time. Fresh vegetables and fruit are perishable and spoiled food wastes money.

UNHAPPY MO I HER DEAR MOTHER: If you wnnt to maintain a good relationship with your son, yes. DICAH ABBY: Tell that small-town bartender that he doesn't have to lie. If someone phones the bar and asks if Joe Blow is there, all he has to do is page Joe Blow by calling his name loudly. If Joe Blow doesn't want to answer the page, it's his business. That way the bartender isn't in the middle. LADY BARTENDER DEAR LADY: Leave it to a lady to figure out how to keep from getting in the middle. Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

A. — At both ends of the house as high in the attic as possible. Figure out the square footage of the attic floor. Take the figures to the louver dealer and ask him for the proper size for an attic with that much square footage. Q, — Is it true that what is sometimes called cherry wood is really red gum? A. — It may be true in some cases, but reputable dealers do not misrepresent. Actually, cherry wood is a lustrous reddish brown. Red gum has the same color tone but is rather dingy in appearance. Where purchasers go wrong is in failing to note the word "finish" in advertisements, regardless of the type of wood that really is used. For example, a "mahogany finish" wood is not mahogany. A "maple finish" wood is not maple. • By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures irig~Tn the Home" OR "Make Simple Plumbing Repairs," t send 30 cents and a long,' stamped, self-addressed envelope to Know How, P.O.
