God gave me 13 children and I am proud of it. When people find out how many kids I have, they look at me like I committed some kind of crime. I am not on welfare, and I am not asking anybody else to help me raise them. Some people ask me if I ever heard of birth control. I have, but the only method permitted by the Catholic Church is called "the rhythm system." Why can't people mind their own business? PROUD MOTHER DEAR PROUD: One reason may be that they are concerned about a very real problem, which cannot be ignored. It's overpopulation. At present, the world population is increasing at the rate of about 68 million a year—much more than the total population of Great Britain, France, Italy, or West Germany! Every day there are 185,000 more mouths to feed. This means that the present world population of 3,632 million will double by the year 2010! But criticizing parents of large families after the fact strikes me as not only irrelevant to future solutions, but as meddlesome and unkind. DEAR ABBY: Our son, who will be 16 his next birthday, is fast-talking, persuasive and attractive. Jeff can charm the birds out of the trees when he wants to. He keeps making remarks like: "I can't wait until my next birthday so I can drive." He's all set to sign up for driver's ed in school. He doesn't have a car to drive, and we hadn't planned on buying him one, but he's been buttering up his grandparents lately, hoping they will buy him a car for his sixteenth birthday. (I have news for him. He still needs OUR permission to drive.) Coming and Going Dr. and Mrs. Stuart Oglesby of Atlanta, Ga. and Mrs. William Oglesby of Texarkana were visitors In the Roy Anderson home this week. (Dr. Oglesby was in Roy and Vera Anderson's wedding.) Mrs. Arch Moore Ellington of Atlanta, Tex. has been a guest of her mother-in-law Mrs. Justine Hamm. Mr. and Mrs. Fay James and Mr. and Mrs. Andy Caldwell have returned from a tour of the Ozarks. They particularly enjoyed Beavers Dam, Mt. Magazine, Blue Springs, Trail of Tears and Eureka Springs. Mr. and Mrs; Emmett Wassell have returned from a visit in Hot Springs Village and Bella Vista. They were joined by Mr. WasselTs two brothers from Texas and a sister from California. Mr. and Mrs. Olin Purtell entertained with a dinner at. their home Thursday honoring his sisters and their husbands, Mr. and Mrs. A.B. Taylor and Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Bruce. They will be leaving this weekend for their homes in California after several weeks visit here. Joining the group were another sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. John Clark of Hope, also Mrs. Pearl N. Hollis of Hope and Mrs. Cora N. Braswell of Texarkana, Ark. Tips For Working Women To dry the carpet, cover the spot with a Vi-inch thickness of white paper towels and weigh them down with heavy books. The carpet should be dry and stain-free in about 45 minutes. Around the kitchen-if you'll place a dampened paper towel under your mixing bowl or board, this will prevent it from sliding around when you mix ingredients or knead and roll out dough. Another tip — use a higher temperature when cooking in the oven. This makes it.pos- sible to cook a four-pound chicken in one hour. Or, by boning chicken first, 'you can cook the same chicken in about IS minutes. To speed up ironing time, put heavy foil under the ironing board cover. As you iron a garment, the heat from the iron will reflect from the foil and you'll find ironing goes twice as fast. This tip should also save on energy and electricity. Break a glass on your clean linoleum floor? For quick and effective cleanup, use a damp Scott paper towel to sweep up the elusive glass slivers. Paper towels are also ideal for carpet spills. Quickly blot up excess liquid with a paper towel. Next, apply cleaning solution with a soft, white cloth or another clean paper towel. Extend clothing dollars The smart shopper keeps the cost of care in mind when selecting and buying clothes for the family. For example, darker colors do not show soil as readily as white or brightly colored clothing. And because of this, they are more economical when it comes to dry cleaning or washing. Dark garments with contrasting lighter colored collars and cuffs may need more frequent dry cleaning or washing unless the collars and cuffs are removable. Long sleeves seem to attract dirt. And very soft fabrics seem to get soiled faster than those with harder surfaces. Hang and air garments between wearings each day. This can make a big difference in how often garments need to be laundered or dry cleaned. You can further economize on 'clothing care in using non-toxic spot removers to remove collar soils due to makeup or body oils. If such spots are allowed to dry untreated, they may turn yellow or discolor later when they are laundered. Wanda Williams, County Extension Agent-Home Economics, says that it sometimes' becomes necessary, regardless of how carefully you shop, to take your clothes to the dry cleaners. When this time comes, keep in mind that you needn't take garments to the dry cleaners if they are labeled "washable." However, if they are labeled "dry dean only," they do need to be cared for professionally. To eliminate extra charges for special handling or finishing at the dry cleaners, avoid buying leather, fur, sheer chiffons, pleats, beading, and other intricate design details. If buttons need to be removed before dry cleaning, remove them yourself to save up to 10 cents per button. Also, make any minor repairs yourself. If pickup and delivery service means an extra charge, make it another "do-it-yourself" activity. You might also watch for seasonal price reductions for dry cleaning, but always find out exactly what the reduced services include. Coin-operated and self- service dry cleaning establishments are a great money saver for many of your dry cleanable clothes. You can do some of the steps yourself, such as pre- spotting and pressing. Most garments usually require little or no pressing if you remove them from the machine as soon as the dry cleaning process is completed and are careful to hang them up promptly. —Loolong for something?

Jeffs grades are jus.t so-so, he doesn't always keep his word, and he has to show a lot more maturity and responsibility before we'll let him drive. He had a summer job and didn't save a dime. How do we get it across to this boy that just because the law says he s old enough to drive doesn't necessarily mean he s going to? MOM AND Pop DEAR M. AND P.: You seem articulate enough. Whv don't you just TELL him? y DEAR ABBY: I would like to just walk away from my home and husband, and start a new life somewhere where nobody knows me. I hate being married. I've been married for 25 years I have no children at home. I didn't really want to get married and I didn't have to, but in those days, social pressures made a girl feel like if she wasn't married there must be something the matter with her. Abby, could this feeling I have be the "change of life" es? RESTLESS DEAR RESTLESS: Could be. Women in their middle years (men, too) sometimes become depressed and dissatisfied with their lot. That "let-down" feeling could be caused by a hormonal change. Get a thorough physical checkup without delay, and tell your doctor what's on your mind I promise you, he's heard that tune before. There IS help for you. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a persona] reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

I do not want to discard this cloth. I hope someone can tell me of a simple way to get it back to its original round shape. - BENNIE. DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve is with the mail service. We live in a mobile home park and the mail is delivered any time from 11 in the morning to late afternoon and by a different carrier almost every day. Mail is left at wrong addresses and at homes where the people have returned North for the summer and have left a forwarding address with the post office. The other day there were four letters in our box all plainly addressed to people elsewhere. It seems that with postage rates so high we could get better service. After every delivery the neighbors are out taking mail to the right places. - MRS.J.S. DEAR POLLY — I have help for Yvonne who cannot copy recipes as fast as they are given on television. I keep a cassette player and blank tape ready by my TV. When someone gives a recipe I get it all down on the tape and then play it back as I copy it on a recipe card. It can be stopped and played back any time I am not sure about something and I nave built up quite a recipe card file by using this method. — CATHY. DEAR POLLY — When cutting out a garment to be made and you are not too sure about the fit of the pattern cut the notches for matching seams OUT rather than in as the pattern indicates. This will allow for a larger seam in case the garment needs letting out. — LORENE. DEAR POLLY — I bought a large styrofoam cooler on sale for little more than a dollar and use it for a picnic basket. I keep baked beans, scalloped potatoes, etc., hoc by putting them in the bottom and then laying my tablecloth over them and then other things are put on top of that. The food that . should stay cold is put in another cooler with the drinks so I have a "Hot Cooler and a "Cold Cooler." - MRS.L.S. DEAR POLLY — When my baby no longer needed her liquid filled teething ring I started keeping it in the freezer. It works like a small ice pack when baby gets a bump. She even holds on to it herself since it is a familiar object to her. I use a nut cracker for opening bottles of catsup, salad dressing, etc. My children always want to help when I bake bread but would wind up covered with flour. Now I put one of their father's old tee shirts on each. They come to the boys' knees and their clothes are kept flour free. — BONNIE.
