Thursday, September 19, 1974 HOPE (AttK.) STAR Page Hifee Sunday brunch delight By Aiieen Claire NBA Food Editor A rich, pleasantly surprising dish for special guests combines' banish cheese, mush/ rooms and shrimp in a cream sauce. This is served as a filling in individual pastry puff rings along with asparagus spears and a favorite beverage. You may find a Cheese Puff Ring just the answer for something different to serve for Sunday brunches.

We want Susie to be married in our church with her friends and family present. This Okie she's marrying wants to be married in his church in Oklahoma, where there will be only strangers to Susie. The reason he wants the wedding in Oklahoma is because his mother is old, sick and can't travel. She's a widow, and he's her only child. I think it's nice of this Okie to be so considerate of his mother, but is it fair to us? Susie is ready to give in, and I don't think she should. I planned on having the whole wedding taped and taking lots of pictures to send to this Okie's mother which would be almost like being at the wedding. I want your opinion. SUSIE'S MOM DEAR MOM: Although weddings traditionally take place in the bride's church, the groom's reasons for wanting to have it in Oklahoma seem reasonable to me. Why not let the bride and groom work it out? And Mom, I sense an element of hostility here that goes deeper than the question of where to have the wedding. For openers, you could quit referring to your prospective son-in-law as "This Okie." Okay? DEAR ABBY: I am a man in my last year of college. My parents are divorced and I live with my dad. I am on good terms with both of them, but there is something about my father that bugs me. Dad has a steady girl friend who spends the night at his place quite often. That's his business, although I feel a little strange witnessing this kind of setup. I sure wasn't raised that way. Both Mom and Dad were a little on the prudish side, and taught me that sex is a private matter. What I really object to is the way Dad and his girl friend carry on in front of me. Lots of fondling and kissing, and touching in a most intimate way. This goes on while we are having a three-way conversation, so it's not as if 1 intruded on their privacy. I 've told Dad that I find this sort of thing embarrassing and have asked him not to do it. Nothing changed. How can 1 let him know that I mean what I say? He respects your advice. GROSSED OUT DEAR GROSSED: I doubt that Dad will change his behavior to please you, so since it's his house, and you're old enough to do so, find separate digs and quietly move out. Tell him it's time you lived alone. (True.) Avoid futile confrontation and remain friends. DEAR ABBY: I have a serious problem 1 cannot confide in anyone else. I am a woman, aged 23. I have never had a complete physical examination in my life. To be honest with you, 1 just can't go through with anything like that. The thought of a gynecological examination throws me into a panic. For the last couple of months I haven't been feeling well. I know I should see a doctor for a complete examination, but I 've made three appointments and cancelled them all at the last minute due to this fear of embarrassment. I hope this doesn't give you the impression that 1 am childish or stupid because I'm not. I am a college graduate and consider myself to be fairly intelligent. Please advise me. HUNG UP DEAR HUNG UP: Consider seeing a woman physician, although a competent male physician would surely put you at ease immediately. Make an appointment today and no more stalling. CONFIDENTIAL TO "SONNY IN SANTA BARBARA": Be careful in your selection of a 'new broom'—you might get one with a witch on it. Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

I tried ironing the very thin pages with a slightly heated iron but this did not help much. I hope the readers can offer me some other suggestions. — JOHNELLE. DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with handcraft and needlework kits that come with insufficient materials to complete the project as the directions indicate. Fill a small plastic squeeze bottle with water and a few drops of detergent. Screw or tape the top in position on the bottle. Put filled bottle in your bike basket or especially in your child's basket. Whenever going on a long ride it is ready for a quick cleanup. — JOANNE. DEAR POLLY — The reader who has the problem with lint being on her polyester slacks when they come out of the washer should get a yard of nylon net, put it in the dryer with her clothes and the lint will cling to the net. I keep several pieces on hand to use for this. - DOROTHY. DEAR POLLY — Turn polyester slacks inside out before putting them in the washer and dryer and have the problem solved. 1 find this also works with men's knit socks. — HELEN. DEAR POLLY — To discipline or train a cat I use a squirt bottle or a squirt gun (the kind used in a filling station) fillea with water. Cats do not like water but this does not harm them as kicking or spanking might do. It also works as well on an older, more stubborn cat as it does on a young kitten. — L.B. DEAR POLLY - I would like to tell other homemakers that when using a spray wax for dusting and polishing furniture they should remove lamps and other objects from table tops before beginning and then leave them off for a while lo give the wax time to dry. Much to my sorrow I only moved objects to one side, polished the other side and then returned them and there was a discoloration. — GENE. DEAR POLLY — I keep a small notebook in my sewing drawer. In it are the instructions for washing or dry cleaning any article of clothing from which I have removed the instruction tag. Such tags often scratch or show when left in a garment - MRS.E.S. By Gaynor Maddox Consumerism. That's a fighting word. The threat of the full thrust of consumers for or against certain types of products alarms manufacturers and food processors. For this reason, consumerism forces them to point to a new way of deciding what to sell. For example, it is no longer unusual for housewives and food manufacturers to discuss what and 'how to advertise products for daily consumption/Market testing and consumer panels are attempts lo get the bugs out of sales resistance before a product is marketed nationally — and possibly flops. An example is a new agency the J. Walter Thompson Company's Chicago office has set up. It is planned to meet newly arising clients' needs — namely, the need to know what consumers are thinking, what they are complaining about and what hostile trends are gathering force. Home economist Marian Tripp, widely experienced in consumer studies and an advertising executive, has been appointed manager. ' I have two areas of activity," Ms. Tripp explains. "First, advising JWT people so that their ads will reflect a sensitivity to consumer desires and needs. Then, they won't be flying against consumer consensus. "The Consumer Bureau, as the service is called, will draw on all my experiences in college, broadcasting studios, consumer groups, consumerism literature, and direct contact with thousands of informed consumer group leaders. In short, it is to come up with grass roots information of what the consumer will buy, not what the manufacturer thinks he should buy," she says. Ms. Tripp adds, "Also, and this is highly important, 1 will learn earlier what attacks are being formulated aPnirKt the manufacturers and processors. Then ad men can meet and discuss these differences and complaints. That is far better and far less costly than wrestling with the old-fashioned blind antagonisms that we have seen." One of the Bureau's projects is to learn the consumer's opinion of the effect of the energy crisis on food production and its advertising and marketing. This will require sound research among grass route sources, she admits. Nutrition information and its relation lo labeling, dating and such in both children's and adult's advertising is another study. Advising on and explaining the use of the metric system is another area of her activities. "It's pretty ridiculous for the United States to be the only industrial country in the world that does not use the metric system," she said. "Gradually we are beginning to try to teach people this very simple decimal system. That is something that my new department will insist on. Gradually, but steadily, the metric system will get more and more emphasis. We have only 10 years' time," Ms. Tripp adds, before we convert to it." A widow, with t wo handsome sons in private schools, she keeps house in Chicago and says, "I know full well some of the consumer complaints. That doesn't mean 1 believe the consumer is always right. Many times she does not understand the problems of the advertiser or his client. A little more human understanding will help. That's what my new position calls for. 1 will draw on my home experience, my financial problems and all the other particulars of daily living all examined under the strict gaze of the modern woman in business."
