Aim Landers Henna? Must Be Just Beautiful Dear Ann Landers: Our 17- year-old son turned up at breakfast this morning with a henna rinse. He is a natural blonde and this red hair job makes him look like a freak. His father and I are sick over it. He told us his girl friend did it just to see how it would look. She liked it and made him promise to leave it that way. He said he didn't think the color of a person's hair was very important. My first impulse was to go »ver to the girl's house and tear her blonde hair out by the black roots. My husband said to :alm down and write to you for advice.

Ottawa Roller Rink Public Sessions Wed. and Fri., 7:30 to 10:00 Sat. nights, 8:00 to 11:00 Private Parties Mon., Tues., and Thurs. 2nd and Main CH 2-9704 \^ "Our Dutch menu this year didn't give us any trouble after we found the recipes," says Mrs. Ray Talbott of Miriam C.W.F. group of First Christian Church. "Some years we have run into difficulties when serving our annual foreign dinner. It can make a difference in recipes when using our foods as a substitute for some found in Africa and other non - Western countries." Mrs. Talbot says she and her sister-in-law, Mrs. Charles Talbott, found the recipes in a book which came with a stove. It was only necessary to multiply the amounts to serve at the Thurs day evening dinner since they planned for around 90. The women report that the plan of having a cold fruit soup for the first course helped with the problem of serving since it could be put on the table before diners were seated. After shopping about, the women bought blackberries to replace the red currants listed in the recipe. Roode Krentenbrij (Red Currant Soup) 2 tbsp. barley 1 quart red currants 1 c. sugar Vi c. water 1 stick cinnamon y% tsp. salt. Soak barley over night in 1 c. water. Wash and stem currants. Add sugar, water and stick cinnamon. Cook over low heat for minutes. Drain and pour through coarse sieve. Add barley with salt and simmer until barley is soft and juice is thickened. Chill. Grape juice or any other berries such as blackberries or raspberries may be used. Meat is perhaps the most important item in the main coure. The recipe chosen did not depart too greatly from American ones By L.M.S. Keith Robertson, author of children's books, told Ottawa school children while visiting here Wednesday that they should write about the things they know and understand. Then you do not make foolish mistakes as might otherwise happen. One child protested that nothing t h a t happened to h i m was exciting like the things in books. The author explained that it is possible to take those exciting things which happen only at i n t e r- vals and make them all into a story. He told that one does not expect exciting things to happen every day in real life. As a rule one goes about his business for weeks and months without unusual things happening. He said that in military service it works the same way. He knows, since he served in the Navy during World War II. He said that at times there is plenty of excitement but at other times the servicemen had nothing better to do than polish the brass. Naturally, when they came home it was only the exciting things which they told friends and relatives. Perhaps one of the nicest compliments the author received was a little hoy's report to his mother that the visitor "looks just like anybody else." Mrs. Jodie Jordan can tell you first-hand about the White Cliffs of Dover as well as a number of other scenes in England. She has just returned from a 6-week visit in London with her daughter and family, Commander anc Mrs. R. H. Fischer and four children, two of whom she hac tery grave marker while preparing to add on to the store at the back. It bears the name Hibbard, but the first name was missing as the stone was split down the center. It bears the birth date of 1831, the death date as 1881. No one believes it marked a grave. It may have been an imperfect stone used as a stepping stone. One theory is that it was part of an original stone moved from a cemetery after it had been replaced by a new one.
