-SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1S69 THIS REGISTJJJR-NEWS — MT. VJtfKWON, 1B14MMS DEAR ABBY . A Parent's Prayer For All To Know Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: You once printed "A PARENT'S PRAYER" which had some wonderful advice in it for parents. I kept it for .about five years and now 1 can't locate it, and I am just sick. If you know the piece I'm referring too, I beg you to print it again. Thank you. LUCY ANN DEAR LUCY: Thanks to a rompetent secretary I was able to dig it out. And here it is: A PARENT'S PRAYER O heavenly Father, make me a better parent. Teach me to understand my children, to listen patiently to what they have to say, and to answer all thfrir questions kindly. Keep me from interrupting them or contradicting them. Make me as courteous to them as I would have them be to me. Forbid that I should ever laugh at their mistakes, or resort to shame or redicule when they displease me. May I never punish them for my own selfish satisfaction ar to show my power. let me not tempt my child to lie or steal. And guide me hour by hour that I may demonstrate by all I say and do that honesty produces happi- BJ SS. Reduce, I pray, the meanness In me. And when I am out of sorts, help me, 0 Lord, to hold my tongue. May I ever foe mindful that my children are children and I should not expect of them the judgement of adults. Let me not rob them of the opportunity to wait on themselves and to make decisions. Bless me with the bigness to grant them all their reasonable requests, and the courage to deny them privileges I know win do them harm. Make me fair and just and k>nd. And" fit me, q lord to be loved and respected and imitated by my children. Amen. DEAR ABBY: Why is it that mothers are so much stricter with their daughters than they are with their sons? My mother watches us girls ljke hawks, b:it the lets my brothers do just about anything they want. My friends tell me it's the same at their house. I think this is vevy unfair. CINDY DEAR CINDY: It all averages out. The fathers are usually stricter with the boys. DEAR ABBY: There is a young couple in our church who have been married almost a year. Some of the folks, are getting disgusted by the way they act in church. She nibbles on his ear, and he kisses her neck. They aren't tuen- agers. He is 33 and she is 24. I am also newly married, but my husband and I show our affection in private. Maybe if you say a word in your column it will help . DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED:' Love is beautiful. But in ^church — no contact sports. CONFIDENTIAL TO MIMI: Money isn't everything. Sometimes it isn't even enough. t ' Everybody has a problem. What's yours?

DEAR POLLY *~ Do you hate to throw away those old square dance skirts* I cut the waistbands off two lovely full circle skirts and I have two round tablecloths. I tapered and stitched tlie opening so the skirt lays flat: I opened the band, filled in the opening and it turned out beautifully. Make yourself a square dance tablecloth and bring back those old memories. —ADELE DEAR POLLY — WiU some one please tell me if there is a way to waterproof a cloth raincoat after It lias been machine-washed—NOLA DEAR POLLY — Molly does hot have to remove completely the dark varnish in her kitchen that she wants to paint with enamel. Only In reflnishing — restalnlng, varnishing or bleaching — is it necessary to remove it completely. Before painting with the enamel she s i mply sands lightly with sandpaper or uses a liquid sandpaper one gets at the paint store. Both these means will create a proper surface condition or proper adhesion. —DAN DEAR POLLY — My grandchildren live many miles away, I only see them twice a year. I make a lot of clothes for them and there was always tlie problem of getting a good fit until I devised the following method. Unroll some sheets of brown wrapping paper or even tape together sheets of white shelf paper. While the children are in shorts or underwear let them lie down on the paper and draw around them completely, carefully marking the wrists, knees and shoulders. Also write oft it the waist size, shoe size, wrist size and any other information that you might want when selecting a size for a pattern. Right now I am using tills pattern as I finish a coat. I do not have to guess at the sleeve or hem length. When I am finished, I roll up the paper, put a rubber band around it and store until it is again needed. —ALMA Seeks Way To Remove Scratches lis Linoleum DEAR POLLY — My kitchen linoleum has hairline scratches on it. I was wbndcring if there is any way of removing them or covering them up. MARY— DEAR POLLY - To get the lime off her water heater, Betty could use vinegar, about H cup to a su I Ion of watc-r. Apply and let stand over night and tlw lime should dissolve. —MRS. E. B. M. DEAR READERS — Betty did not say we are presuming that hers is the type electric heater that stands on a table. Disconnect before starting to work. Never immerse electrical equipment. If Mrs. E. B. M.'s method does not work immediately, try increasing tlie amount of vinegar. Often heating the solution helps.—POLLY DEAR POLLY—To keep "spider web," fine chains for jewelry from getting tangled, I run them through a few short lengths of soda straws, liook them together and keep in the jewelry box. The empty straw is kept in the box while a chain is being worn. To keep tlie children on their toes with their arithmetic, I make flashy cards with magic marker pencils and file cards. The examples (minus the answers) are put on a number of cards spread on the floor. I call for them to gather together any cards with a certain number for an answer and they race each other to get the greatest number of cards. An example would be to ask for 8 (4+4, 5+3, 10—2, etc.) They enjoy this and it cJinrpens them up. I think it is the neighborly tiling to do to give one another Pointers. I can't tell you how manv I use.—LILLIAN DEAR POLLY — My friends and I cut newspapers in strips about 4x7 inches and use them to clean our eye glasses. Nothing we have tried gets them any cleaner.—BETTY You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite homemaking idea, Polly's Problem of solution to a problem.

HOME DECORATING NEWS BASIC PIECES are often referred to in decorating columns and magazines — meaning the essential furniture you should buy first If you are on a budget, and to which you should give the major share of your budget. But you might well ask Just what are these basic pieces? How little can yon start with? Which are the most important pieces? Start with the living room since your needs are more clearly defined in bedroom and dining area. The average living room needs a sofa, a good-sized man's lounge chair and one or two smaller occasional chairs. Add a good coffee table, lamp tables and good lighting, and you have your basic furnishings. Of these, if budget demands, you can eliminate the larger lounge chair in the beginning, perhaps use inexpensive floor cushions for extra seating. If yon choose a longer sectional sofa — often a wise selection — you gain extra seating with fewer chairs, often at a saving. We'll be glad to help yon select basic pieces for any room or for your entire home, keeping your taste and your budget in mind . . . and creating the most ltvabUMy and beauty for your hornet ^ttMttott jjg5
