Flowers' Cover Up Cigarette Burns By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY — I have found an inexpensive but delightful way to cover cigarette burns on an otherwise good plastic tablecloth with a felt back. I cut flowers from a scrap of flowered contact paper and applied over the burns of an avocado green cloth. They adhered well and covered the unsightly burns so I can use the cloth.—ELIZABETH GIRLS — A few extra flowers scattered on the right spots mipht give a more "planned i'ul-way" look to the cloth, — POLLY DEAR POLLY — I find that raste wax gives my rubber tile kitchen floor the best and most lasting shine. Since I have a very large floor area, getting «kwn on my hands and knees becomes very tiring. I hope someone can tell me how to do this job without getting down on my hands and kness. —MARY DEAR POLLY — When a compact is discarded there is always some powder left around the edges. Use a pointed tool, such as a nail file, to remove the caked powder from the edges Pulverize the powder with the back of a spoon. It is sur- pr sing how much can be salvaged. If you have a lamp that is top heavy, loosely fill a plastic big with salt or sand and push it into the base of the lamp. It will really keep it from tipping. —CHRISTINE DEAR POLLY - Bonnie should use a wire brush or steel wool to remove the rust from her grate and then apply sev- er'ii coasts of black stove polish. This works like a charm. -MRS. J.D.C, DEAR POLLY — Dreading's Iriend who annoys her by wan­ ting to get together every morning for coffeee is just the type whu needs people. Make plans to iron together for a whole morning so you can talk and work. too. Best of all, invite her to your next club, P.T.A. or church meeting where she will meet new people and have more than one friend to call for coffee during the mornings. —A FRIEND You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite homemaking Idea, Polly's Problem or solution to a problem.

The Pyramid Clu b *'&• Rival By BETTY CANARY "You've won a free camera!" the post card said. But it was <j different story after I dialed the telephone number given on the card. I got the free camera if I bought a new vacuum clearer. I asked if this same company had sent the card I had received two weeks prior to the camera offer. That card said, "Firs! Notice. Call the number below before 5 p.m. with in the rext three days. " I called but norody answered. The girl said the cleaner company hadn't Font it and so far I've had nothing repossessed, so I am assuming somebody wanted to sell me aluminum siding, new asphalt topping for my driveway or some other hard-to-live with-out item. This year I have received three free vacation invitations to Florida and I wonder how my name got on their list. I vaguely remember signing coupons at the state fair last sum­ mer and possibly this is their source. Of course, I'm not going to spend my money on free • vacations in Florida and I'm net going to invest in real estate there via photographs. Actually, what I'm saving my money for is the cosmetic business. And I'm waiting to be contacted by them. This get-rich, quick scheme fanning out across the country has to be the biggest money- maker since the Pyramid Clubs. What happens is that for $2, 500 you get the opportunity to sell cosmetics. After the company has you signed up, then every other dupe (oops!, the word they use is "client") you tiring into the fold, nets you $500. Obviously, by bringing in five of your friends, you get back you initial investment and you still (lucky you) get to sell uV» cosmetics. The cosmetics you bought at "wholesale" prices, that is. Before all this happens, you ret an invitation to a "party." At the party you'll be shown a film, the star being the head of the cosmetics firm. He was just a pore ole country boy, see. and a door-to-door salesman. Well, the film tells you, aher he made his million dollars, he decided he would devote the rest of his life to making all us folks rich, too. He fcn't pore any more, he says. He spends his time just drivin' aound in his Lincoln Continental and flyin' around the country in the company plane, hel- pin' us out. ... at $2,500 a uclpin'. . . Testimonials are give by 'wealthy" members of the audience (the whole party resembles a revival meeting) all of whom, just a few weeks ago, were pore old country boys. Example: A man, "formerly a postman in Kentucky," who has made more than $50,000 in the vast six months. I'm panting to get in line and SVJXI up. I mean, I'm jus a pnre lil ole girl from the coun try and. . . Tibbs Appointed To Shrine Office A.C.E.I.

Guilty Feelings Not Necessary Abigail Van Huron Insist on Ruffles Ruffles are playing the romarv- tic role in women's wear today. They are lovely on fresh, crisp blouses and around throat and writsts on a plain dress. Also irresistibly sweet peeking out of hems of little girls' dresses^ * DEAR ABBY: My three children and I drove 150 miles for a visit to my hometown recently. (My husband couldn't go. He was working.) We stayed with my parents, but I contacted my in- laws so we could make plans to see them, too. I think my in-laws are unreasonable. Let me explain: I married a widower with two small children. We now have a third child, also. Since these in-laws cared for the two children of my husband's former marriage until we wed, they figure my husband and I owe them something. Of course, we do, But how much? They demanded that I drop off the two older children to visit them, and when I left town I could pick them up. They don't care to see me, or my other child. I flatly refused', saying we would all come to see them, but no, they didn't want us. My mother-in-law even refused to talk to me. I don't know what I have done except to: try to give the children a home with a mother and father instead of grandparents. They seeni to resent me for this. Since they didn't want all my children, I refused to let them have the two older ones. Was I wrong? I invited them to my home anytime to visit the little ones, but they refused. I'd like your views. BEWILDERED DEAR BEWILDERED: If you invited your in-laws to visit thfl children, you have no reason to feel guilty. Your husband should tell his parents that showing such obvious favoritism to his two older children creates problems that he and his family will have to live with, so to please be more reasonable. DEAR ABBY: Medical science has sure given folks a lot of excuses for their shortcomings. We don't have any more drunks, tyrants, or ill-tempered and 1 unreasonable people a n ymore. They are all "sick." Same goes for liars. I know a woman who would rather lie than tell the truth, and do you know what? I am told to have "compassion" for her because she's "sick." So now, lying is a disease, too! I would sure appreciate your comments on this. CICERO DEAR CICERO: People lie because they feel insecure, inade; quate and inferior. It takes a truly helathy- minded courageous,, person to tell the truth, no matter how "bad" it makes him appear. So since lying is a symptom of a character de­ ficiency, perhaps your friend IS "sick." DEAR ABBY: I am a 52- year- old 1 widow who will soon marry Paul, a very nice 55- year-old widower. Here is my problem: First let me explain that while dating I never wore the rings I got from my do- ceased husband because I didn't want to inhibit any man who might have an interest in me. Paul and I didn't have an "official engagement," and certainly nothing was ever mentioned about a ring, but he "surprised" me with a lovely little diamond, and I do mean "little." Abby, my first diamond is nearly three times the size of this one. (I had intended resetting it to wear after I married.) Now what shall I do? I hate to hurt Paul, but if I wear a diamond, I'd prefer wearing the larger one. PERPLEXED DEAR PERPLEXED: Reset the larger diamond and wear it on your right hand. But wear Paul's ring on your "engagement" finger. Veronica's Views By Veronica Voss Some days of mid-winter have no color at all, except greys, varying from light to dark. This January 16th was just such a day. The grass colorless with a sad and sodden appearance. The trees, wot black branches etching themselves against the grey sky, lend the only stark contrast to the scene. Maybe we will appreciate Spring even more. . . and if this is possible, winter has served its purpose well. -o- -o- -o- During the time tine "Peace People" were haggling over the shape of the table in Pans, I had early suggested a round one . . . revolving constantly, in this way showing no partiality to any of the delegates. They have solved this as of today, by having no name plates on the table and using the round one. I imagine a new problem will arise before they get seated. But with fkigers crossed and tongue in cheek, let us hope they get down to business, -o- -o- -o- A real life story, sounding almost like fiction, happened recently to' a young Navy man — Gunner's Mate Bcrnie Minton. Home on leave this winter, he was introduced to a Mrs. Wong from Hong Kong. She was visiting this country to sec her new grandchild. Bernie knew his tour of duty would take him to Hong Kong, so they exchanged addresses. In a communique this week he reported to his folks mat he had been a guest in the Wong home. They are manufacturers of motorcylce helmets, for Sears Roebuck. Small world, isn't it? -o- -o- -o- I know another young fellow counting the days now. He will leave Viet Nam very soon, and warned us we would have a visitor. We will be watching our doorstep, Rick, and the Welcome mat is out. . .
