Old Club Yearbooks Make Good Recipe Files DEAR POLLY — It occurred J to me that it is a good idea to save those old club yearbooks that are soon going to be outdated and paste recipes in them. They are all much the same size and would take very little space to file. One book could be used for one category of recipes such as salads, one for casseroles, etc. Guess I have just found myself a new hobby and from the looks of my recipe file it is a long overdue one. Mrs. S.C.B. DEAR POLLY — I bought a bedspread advertised as being lint- free. It is a t h e r mal weave and also was claimed to be a machine-washable. The shedding of lint has caused me trouble ever since I bought it and is worse since it was washed. Now it is little white balls of fuzz and this clings to everything it touches. The store where the spread was purchased offered to exchange this for another kind of spread but they did not have the color I wanted. Do other people have this problem with thermal weabe bedspreads of blankets and what do they do? LILLIAN Dear Atofov Who's To Blame For The Kids? AM DEAR ABBY: You told a woman who blamed her husband when she found out she was pregnant when she didn't want any more kids that she should lay off because it was partly her fault, too. You said, "It takes two to tango," or something like that. Well, you are dead wrong. It takes only one strong determined male to trap a helpless female, bat if c the poor woman who pays the price in the end. I ought to know. It happened, to me. NELL DEAR NELL: That was no tango, Lady. DEAR ABBY: I have been reading your advice every day looking for a solution to my problem. but to no avail. so here goes: I am a 38- year - old married woman with no children. My marriage is a happy one now, but for years I didn't draw a s^ber breath. I haven't touched a drop in two years and I feel in my heart that NOTHING in this world could ever make me touch the stuff again. Now what's my problem? Does « nonpmcticing alcoholio have to go thru life looking like a, "hag" for the rest of her lire? My drinking has aged me 20 eyars. My face is covered with deep lines and wrinkles. I look like an old woman. I've tried all the facials and "tightening" creams and nothing has worked. Is there a good plastic surgeon in the Chicago area who isn't too terribly expensive, and would let me pay on time? Also, Abby. please tell your readers that there is no better way in the world to learn how to live without alcohol than ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS. I really didn't want to quit drinking but went to a meeting just to get my family doctor off my back, and here I am, sober and happy and eager to face life. If I can quit, ANYBODY can. * NAMELESS PLEASE DEAR NAMELESS: My hat's off to you.. Talk to your family doctor about that plastic surgery, and ask for his recommendation. DEAR ABBY: This is for "DEPRESSED," the 25- year- old wife and mother who wants "shots" to increase the size of her bust: If the first place, where did she get the idea that all males consider big bosoms important? It just isn't so. What is important to a man is lhat womin should be neat, clean, honest, and considerate. I have spoken to other men about thisv and they agree that a big bust is zero. Tt doens't a3d one thing to a woman's real sexiness. In other words, a real man wouldn't walk around the corner to stare at one of those top-heavy cows. Thank you. AN IRATE FLUMBEB DEAR POLLY - After Christmas, when I am packing decorations, tree lights and so on, I write on my calendar on November of the coming year all the items like paper, light bulbs etc., that will be needed for next Christmas. When Christmas items are on sale, I can toll at a glance what is needed without unpacking anything. LOIS DEAR POLLY — The answer for Mrs. W. E.M. is "Yes, water from a dehumidifier also removes dust from the air, it is preferable to first filter the water through a piece of firm material. An alternative treatment would be to allow this water to stand for a few days in a gallon-sized plastic milk jug. When the water is distilled the pure water is collected and the minerals are left behind. JAMES H.

Nancy Dilley, left, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Dilley, 712 Lake Park Road, and Sara Dykes, right, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Dykes, 107 North 32d street, were included in a group of twenty- one Methodist high school youth who spent their holidays attending a social action seminar in New Orleans, Louisiana. Both girls are seniors at the Mt. Vernon township high school, and are leaders in the youth program of First United Methodist church. Along with five adult sponsors, the group left Mt. Vernon by charter bus on December 26 and returned December 31. They spent the first night in Winona, Mississippi, sleeping in a residence owned by the United Methodist church and visiting with youth of the city. Arriving in New Orleans on December 27, the group was based in the Second United Methodist church, an inner-cily mission located near the French Quarter, and serving a variety of persons in the community. The church pastor directed a program of visits to French Quarter places of interest, and to places frequented by "hippies." jazz buffs and assorted militants. They engaged in dialogue with white and Negro iJeople whose lives have b°en spent in the city. They talked with illiterates and with those who are university educated. On Sunday different groups visited churches serving the very poor, as well as in the miuaic income and wealthy sections of the city. They discussed life and its demands with persons who work in prisons, in half-way houses, and in social service centers. They ate "typical" French Quarter food and attempted to understand people who live in a world quite different from Aat known by Southern Illinois youth. The u-ip was organized by the youth leaders of the Southern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist church. Miss Ha thy Carlson, assistant director of Wesley Foundation in Carbondale, was the seminar leader.

The problem of weight control is basically to bring energy intake (food) into balance with energy output, (activity). If a person consumes more calories than he uses in his daily activity, the excess will be stored as increased weight. Nutritionists say, "We have our choice in today's affluent society of remaining slightly hungry during most of our lives, or of getting sufficient exercise to use up the calories we. enjoy." A balanced diet, with minimum starches and fats, plus plenty/of exercise, should; keep weight fairly constant.': Socially Yours By NAD1NE Society Editor Mr. and Mrs. Lee eHard and daughters, Allea and Kela of Irving ,Tex., have returned to their home after spending the New Year's holidays with relatives and friends. -o- -o- -o- 1 Bill Southerd of Route 5, Mt.

Status Symbol Sweated Out BY BETTY CANARY I wouldn't have brought this up if I hadn't seen the notice in my newspaper about Robert L. Jacques of Rockville, Md., filing suit against Curtis Publishing Co. Mr. Jacques was one of those millions cut off by Curtis when Saturday Evening Post pruned its subscription list last fall. Let Mr. Jacques' experience be a lesson to us. He is back on that subscription list, which at least proves we can be considered sophisticated if only we want to fight for it. SatEvePost switched many subscribers to the list at Holiday magazine because they wanted to concentrate on a more sophisticated audience. Holiday readers take note. Does this mean those interested in travel, foreign ports and exotic places are the least sophisticated of us all? By dropping readers, Saturday Evening Post became an instant status symbol. And, when the purge bijgan, I wor­ ried. Would they drop me? As I own neither color television nor sauna bath, I have to hang on to whatever status symbols I do have. I read articles written by those who had been dropped. And I waited. Over my car radio I listened to the laments of those who had in happier days been recipients of the Post, And, I waited. I began e xperiencing a slight throb at my right temple when watching for the postman to turn our corner. Each day I expected a notice saying I had been relegated to the Post's past. The throb turned into a mean headache. I started meeting the postman down the street "Are you sure I didn't get a letter?" I would beg, while hoping, oh yes, praying, there wouldn't be one. "Gee, leady," he would answer, "let go my coat." I started putting on eye shadow before breakfast just to prove to myself that I was sophisticated even if the Post didd drop me. The day I received my regular copy of the magazine I penciled in a beauty mark close to my left jawbone as sort of a little celebration. The old fear still haunted me. Perhaps my notice had been lost in the mail. But the next issue arrived and the next issue and I began to relax. Then it happened. I got a letter from Saturday Evening Pojst and I couldn't believe my eyes. It was an order blank for a new subscription. You can see the problems this presented. I already have one subscription. Will two make me twice as sophisticated? If I now try to get a subscription to Holiday will I be refused because I am too sophisticated? And after this, what would happen if I ever tried to drop the Saturday Evening Post? I just wonder if they would allow it! Mr. Jacques has paved the way. He got back on their, list and, by golly, if the day comes when I want to quit, I'll Ult. • r' ,
