Homecoming festivities at Hope High School will bring back memories to many. For instance, lii November of 1935 reigning as Queen was Miss Martha Ann Singleton. Attending her were: Misses Angie Lee Smith, Mary Jane Richards, Alice Kate Hutson and Phena Munn. By the way, the game was between , Hope and Bee be. No record was shown In the Hope Star files of a homecoming in 1936, therefore the 1937 homecoming could well be called the first of 37 consecutive annual homecoming celebrations. Hope played Russellville and won the game, but the big story, which covered three-fourths of the front page of the November 15, 1937 Star, was the homecoming, in which Miss Carlene Bruner was Queen. Her four ..maids were, Miss Marian Smith, Miss Jennie Sue Moore, Miss Phena Munn and Mis? Mary Wilson. Umm - umm good! By AILEEN CLAIRE NEA Food Editor Many young rnen and women are discovering the fun of creating an attractive and flavorful food dish. Families with a sweet tooth and not on restricted diets will enjoy homemade Chocolate Mints. Very small children definitely will need help at one stage of preparation but this can be a good family project. Chocolate mints make a good "digestive" after a heavy, barbecue and for the weight- conscious, one or two mints" can satisfy the urge to gobble up desserts. CHOCOLATE MINTS 1 /3 cup margarine Vz cup light corn syrup 1 pound confectioners sugar, sifted 1 teaspoon spearmint extract 3 drops green food coloring 1 A cup margarine 8 squares (1 oz. each) semi-sweet chocolate Mix together one-third cup margarine, corn syrup and 2 cups sugar in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, itir- ring constantly, until mixture comes to full boil. Stir in remaining sugar. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla, spearmint extract and green food coloring. Continue stirring until mixture holds shape. Pour into greased bak- 'ing pan. Cool just enough to handle. Knead with lightly greased hands until smooth. (If candy hardens too much before kneading, work with spoon, then knead.) Shape into 1-inch balls, then flatten. Set aside. Melt one-fourth cup margarine and semi-sweet chocolate in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling water. Cool slightly. Using 2 spoons dip patties into chocolate and coat completely. Place on waxed paper. Set in cool place until firm. Store covered in refrigerator. Makes 45 mint patties.

Just DEAR ABBY: I've always been very proud of the fact that my family came to Massachusetts from England in 1637. My husband says it's nothing to brag about because the people who came here then were all criminals who had been run out of England. My husband is of Italian descent. His parents didn't come here until 1900, but he claims he came from "royalty." He says that years ago when an Italian nobleman would get a peasant girl pregnant, the girl would leave her illegitimate baby on someone's doorstep. My husband says that he was such a child because his name, when translated, is the one given to those abandoned babies. Anyway, I want to know whether I should be proud of my ancestry or ashamed? And how about my husband? NEW ENGLANDER DEAR NEW: Intelligent, discerning people don't judge others by what their ancestors did, so don't take any bows, or accept any blame for yours. As I see it, the only aristocracy worth bragging about is the aristocracy of achievement. Everyone must stand on his own record. DEAR ABBY: My husband's secretary has given him many costly gifts, ranging from travel accessories to art during the two years she has worked for him. Some of the cards she has enclosed with these gifts have been embarrassingly personal. I feel certain she is pursuing him, although he says he thinks I'm mistaken. This young woman is divorced and has two children, and I know she could put her money to better use than buying gifts for my husband. And 1 wish she would. How do we let her know? PUZZLED IN N.J. DEAR PUZZLED: This is not a job for "we"-your husband should handle it alone. And if he really wants to discourage further gift giving, he will—toot sweet! DEAR ABBY: About six weeks ago, I met an insurance agent who happened to call at my door. I don't usually invite strangers in, but this man seemed exceptionally nice. Also, being single, I was more interested in him than I was in insurance. After talking to him, I learned that he is new in town, and recently divorced. First I invited him to my home for dinner, then he invited me out, and we've been dating ever since. After six weeks of enjoying each other's company he still hasn't invited me to see where he lives. I've hinted, but he hasn't offered. He spends too much time with me to be married, so that can't be the reason. Abby, why doesn't he want me to see where he lives? I enjoy his company, and he takes me out a lot, but should I continue to invite him to my home when he never invites me to his? BOTHERED DEAR BOTHERED: He could be living in a cheap rooming house or an apartment of which he isn't very proud. As a newly divorced man he may have taken a financial beating, and is trying to get on his feet again. Don't fault him. You've known him only six weeks. Give him more time. 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.

Familv Lib Educating teens • ^i^» I I I I I T •••• I ^^ f •' • l for parenthood )Bv Joanne and Lew Koch ~ We can no longer rely on "instincts" to produce adequate mothers and fathers and healthy children. Our child abuse statistics, which show that more children die at the hands of their own parents than from any other disease, should be enough to convince us. In the days of larger families and mothers working within the home, children had an opportunity to learn about parenting. "In today's world," ntatcs Cornell University Professor of Human Development Uric Bronfenbrenner, "children are deprived not only of parents but of adults in general. The resulting vacuum is filled by the television screen and the age-segregated peer group.' How many 14-year olds even talk to a 4-year-old, unless they happen to meet one across their own breakfast table? Adolescents, particularly male adolescents, who will be called upon to lake a greater share in parenting with so many mothers working, have lost contact with children. Yet the number of teen-age parents is surprisingly high. One of every 10 school-age girls is a mother, which also indicates an enormous number of school-age fathers. Few teenage parents have any preparation for their responsibilities. Where will they learn how to deal lovingly and intelligently with their children? In high school — that's where. Five hundred high schools across the country have already included an education for parenthood program in which teen-agers observe and work directly with preschool children, while learning about child development. Most of these schools follow a model curriculum called "Exploring Childhood" which includes booklets, films, posters, records and 1'ilmstrips for students and guidance materials for teachers and parents. Some financial assistance is available to schools who wish to set up such programs,'but the federal fundingiis not sufficient to cover the entire cost. Many schools have simply used existing faculty and facilities in more imaginative ways. While education for parenthood programs vary, two elements are essential. 1) The teens must work directly with the children — using a nursery school, day care center, kindergarten us a fieldsite. With the proper supervision teens can learn to be of enormous assistance, while they learn about kids. 2) Male students must participate. Half of the people who affect the growth and future of children are male. Judging from the thousands of teen-age boys who have already participated, the experience is invaluable. It's even prevented some boys from dropping out of school. To find out how to initiate this vital program in your school, write: Stanley Kruger, Education for Parenthood Project, Office of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Room 2089-G, Washington, D.C. 20202. Parenting can be taught in the schools, as thousands of teens and their parents can now testify. This is fast becoming the only hope for young people to learn about children before they have their own. (Note: written by Joanne) Saenger THEATRE TONITE 7:00 SATURDAY 1:00-7:00 ADM. 1.00-1.75 o .
