A feast for the eye: flowers-in-a-lunchbox Does the prospect of peace and quiet, now that the children are back at their desks, fill you with lighthearted glee? Share feelings and summertime memories with friends and neighbors over coffee and donuts at a table made cheery with a whimsical arrangement of daisies in a discarded lunchbox. Are you the chairman of the annual Teachers Luncheon which welcomes the faculty back for another year of the three Rs? Ask your committee to dust-off the outgrown lunch pails that clutter garages, paint them one of the school's colors and arrange flowers of the other hue in the boxes to serve as eye-catching centerpieces. Have you run out of clever ideas for Brownie or Cub Scout projects" Keep the lunchbox in mind for Mother's Day. The children will relish the fun of creating their own fanciful "vase" and Mother will love the special touch it brings to the breakfast table when overflowing with bright blooms. YOUNG ORIGINALS Be sure the box is dust and grease-free before painting (spray paint is quick and easy) and when thoroughly dry, line with foil to waterproof it and protect your tabletop. A shallow ,,,,,bo,wl. filled with florists' foam and hidden in the box will do the waterproofing job nicely, also. You may wish to highlight the handle and clasps with contrasting paint—easily done with a brush and steady hand. Your new flower holder makes a perfect container for a nostalgic mixture of field flowers such as asters, marigolds or daisies. Glowing golden chrysanthemums, combined with vivid autumn leaves, are a delightful combination. Or, try a dried flower bouquet of tawny earth hues arranged in a sublimely ridiculous antique gold lunch pail for a charming permanent addition in the family room or den. Whatever your choice, a lunchbox filled with flowers is a feast for the eye. Jiffy-sew set. Together the dress and sleeveless coat make a handsome set.

B Ib5 Problem Skin Although proper care can "significantly reduce" the severity of a skin condition, there is no vitamin, drug or cream that will prevent acne, doctors say. Proper treatment and care loses the condition and can prevent permanent skiii damage. Long Lines The new longer lengths in skirts are really with us. Give them a try before dismissing them as unattractive or uncomfortable. A skirt makes a woman I'eel very feminine after so many months of wearing stylish slacks.

Hubby tries to date the wife next door By Abigail Van Buren c 1974 by The Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: Yesterday the man across the street came up to me while I was outside and said, "Where is your old man?" I said, "If you mean my husband, he is at work. Why do you want to know?" Then he said, "Because your husband has been calling up my old lady and trying to get her to go out with him. 1 I didn't know what to say next, so I said, "Well, he'll be home in about an hour. Why don't you come back and talk to him?" Then I went in the house and cried. When my husband came home, I told him what happened. He said it was all a big lie, but he looked nervous and took off right away saying he'd be right back. He called me up later to say he wouldn't be home for supper. Meanwhile, the man from across the street came over again, asking for my husband. He said my husband had called up his wife again and asked her to say she must have been mistaken—that the guy who was trying to get her to go out with him was somebody else. I don't know who to believe, Abby. If my husband had stayed home and faced his neighbor like a man, I would have had more faith in him. What do you think? HURT DEAR HURT: I think your husband has a lot of explaining to do. DEAR ABBY: I recently married a lovely woman. She has two daughters, 15 and 17. They are fine girls, but they go around the house half-nude. They stand around in the kitchen in their shorty nightgowns with nothing on underneath, and often run through the house with nothing on top and very little below. > • I asked the girls to please keep themselves covered, for the sake of modesty, and they looked at me like I was out of my mind. My wife says there is nothing shameful about the body. I am now wondering if maybe I am wrong. I can't help thinking that those young ladies should change their ways instead of me changing my ideas. OLD GOAT DEAR GOAT: You're not wrong. They are. DEAR ABBY: That letter signed "stuck with the kids" could have been written by me. Fresh out of college, I got a dream job. Then marriage, and boom! Two kids, one right after the other. (Both accidents.) I resented them terribly for robbing me of my freedom. Then I felt guilty because I couldn't "love 1 " them like a mother should. I never hurt my kids physically, but emotionally I was destroying them and myself. I tried alcohol, drugs, even suicide. I wrote to you as a last resort, and your answer sunk in. I lucked out with a terrific psychiatrist. I'm glad you told "stuck" that a seemingly overwhelming situation can be dealt with and to get professional help—but fast! I pray that she does. It was my salvation. Thank you, Abby. BLESSED Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send SI to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212.

Family Lib $4.54 a year can save your child's life By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) The school bus industry, which claims to be "self-regulating", has perhaps the most dismal safety record of any major transportation system in the nation. And for the past 10 years, it has bitterly and sometimes dishonestly resisted any federal or state legislation to make school buses safer. More than 22-million .children each day travel in school buses. But despite this enormous ridership, manufacturers continue to produce vehicles they know to be unsafe. School bus manufacturers claim that it's just not economical to make buses to fit the varying standards of different school districts. Apparently, they have not considered building buses which would meet the highest — and therefore all — standards of safety. So the public is forced, for economic reasons, to accept unsafe buses because that's where the profit is. But two bus companies, Ward School Bus Co. of Conway, Ark., and the Wayne School Bus Division of Indian Head Industries in Richmond, Ind., put the lie to that argument.. .:/ Wayne's buses were totally redesigned and strengthened; strengthened fivefold to make them, in the words of one transportation engineer, "as safe as a tank". But school boards which buy from other manufacturers aren't stuck forever with unsafe buses. The following safety features can and should be built into those unsafe vehicles: Every bus should be fitted with padding for the dangerous hard metal railing or edging found on seat backs. Seat belts should be added to every seat and the flooring of the bus strengthened to take the extra stress generated by seatbelt usage. School bus joints must be reinforced so the bus body does not disintegrate under stress. Gas tanks must be strengthened and moved from their present location near the front door. Additional emergency exits must be added, safety glass installed, reflecting strips painted around the entire bus and sidewall padding installed in the vehicle. The average cost of a 66-passenger school bus is about $10,000. The cost of incorporating these safety features is about $3,000. Is that a lot of money? Illinois State Representative Susan Catania figured it out this way: "When the $3,000 is spread out over the 66 passengers riding in the bus, the expense of the added improvements comes to only $45.45 a child. "When the per-child cost is spread out over the average ten-year life of the school bus (an average which could easily increase with better-built buses), then the expense is only $4.54 a year per child. "And when the annual cost is spread over a 36-week school year, that's a cost of only 13 cents a week per child for an 'optimum' safe school bus — or about 2Vz cents a school day.' So parents, the next time there's a school board meeting, you just might want to stick your 2'/z cents in — for your children's sake.
