6—A THE REGISTER.NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS FRTDAY, JANUARY 24,_J9_G9_ By NADINE ALLISON SOCIETY EDITOR What's cooking in the kitchen? Soup — and lots of it. Especially on dreary days like the ones we have been having this week. Soups have been considered a basic food, like bread, kind they like. . . Having tile installed in your home? Keep leftover pieces and turn them into handy coasters and trivets. All you need is a backing material such as cork or felt and down through the ages. But as! some strong, clear-drying glue of today soup no longer is used in the dining-room. Soups of all kinds are being taken on picnics in thermos bottles, purchased with which will adhere to the tile. Pretty and useful. . . -o- -o o- When you are speaking of by factory workers from vend- j soup, really there isn't anything ing machines for lunches, and I better than just plain vegetable shipped to service- men all over soup, made with a big beef bone and beef stew meat, Wanta try this one?

Dad's Temper Gets The Best Of Him Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: At age 81, after having been a widower for many years, Dad married a shrewd little 73- year- old lady. She bad dollar signs in her eyes when she married him. Alter four months, Dad left her saying, "Now I don't have to die to know what hell is Lke." The problem: When Dad walked out on this lady, he said, "I am sick of you. Take what you want!" (The house and everything in it was Dad's.) Two days later when we went to the house, we nearly fainted. The place had been stripped. She had taken everything including carpeting, draperies, fix- turts, stove, refrigerator, and she even uprooted some of the plants in the garden! flow, Abby, you know Dad was not of sound mind when he told her to what she wanted. What should we do? Don't suggest a lawyer. Dad IS a lawyer. TWO DAUGHTERS DEAR DAUGHTERS: Whether Dad was of "sound mind" or not when he told the < grasping little chisler to "take what you Wont," she took him literally DEAR ABBY: I've been married, tor 15 years and my biggest complaint is the same one I've had ever since I was a bride. My husband "surprises" me w'th unexpected dinner guests. He doesn't even call to give me a few minutes notice, he just walks in with company at .nealtime, and says, "Don't go to any extra trouble. Honey, they'll eat whatever we have." I could just wring his neck! Sometimes I have skimpy left overs and there is only enough for our family. Naturally I'm stuck, and have to be a good scout, but I wish I could cure him of his stupid thoughtlessness. COMPANY FOR SUPPER DEAR COMPANY: If *your husband has been "surprising" you with "unexpected" company for 15 years, it's time you expected it. Quit being a "good scout" and start being, a "Girl Sonut." (Be Prepared.)
