Pig* • The Sallna Journal - Friday, November 20,1981 Living Today The Salina Journal He finds body hair bothersome Dew Ann: Why is it considered taboo for men to shave their legs or any part of their body except the face? The reason I ask is because I find it a real turn-on. I like the feel of my smooth body rather than all that hair. Also, my underarm deodorant is more effective when applied to a hair-free armpit. My body hair is fine and straight. It pulla on the back of my thighs when I sit and is disheveled when I remove my trousers. I decided two years ago to shave my legs and thighs, chest and armpits and I like the feeling. I can only do it in the winter, however, because I enjoy going to the beach and a shaven male would be viewed as strange. I have heard women on the beach comment about men who look like apes. This convinced me that if the culture could be conditioned to accept the arm landers shaven male, all men would love it, as I do. Do you agree? — Curious in Norfolk Dear C.: Traditionally hairiness has been symbolic of masculinity. The shaven bodies at the beach are almost always homosexuals. Today's male deodorants work well Making vinegar candy is old-fashioned family fun By HELOISE II Dear Heloiae: I'd sure love to have the old-time recipe for vinegar candy. It's clear when you cook it but turns white when you pull it. Delicious! Nothing more fun than going to a candy pull in cold weather. Such memories! — Edith Smith The simplest things in life seem to hold the most meaning. And what's simpler than vinegar! My, that stuff gets around! How can something so sour taste so sweet! Makes the cycle, I guess, from sweet fruit to sour fermentation, back to delicious candy. It's all in how uou use it... I did come across a recipe that's been handed down and it might be just the one you're looking for. Hope so. Using a medium saucepan, put in three cups of sugar, one-half cup vinegar and one cup water. Stir well before you put it on the stove. Cook this over low heat about 8 to 10 minutes until it reaches the Softball stage (228F). Add a quarter stick of butter or mar- garine and one teaspoon vanilla. Pour the mixture onto a buttered platter and let it cool enough so you can handle it. Now for the fun part, as Mrs. Smith calls it. Pick up the blob and begin to pull it. The more you pull, the whiter it gets. When it has reached the right consistency, cut into small pieces with a pair of scissors. They are easier to use than a knife. You'll need to keep a pat of butter handy to rub on your fingers while pulling that stuff, though, or you'll find yourself all stuck up. Now, gather the family around and have some old-fashioned fun! — Heloise •tr *r -tr Dear Heloiae: Fill plastic ice cube trays with milk and freeze; then put these in a plastic bag. Next time you serve hot coffee, drop in a milk cube and it's ready to drink. — Carolyn Hale Letters to Heloise should be sent to her in care of King Feature Syndicate, 235 E. 45th St., New York, N.Y.,. 10017. without shaving the armpits. As for the chest, legs and thighs, it would seem like a horrendous, time-consuming chore, and the man would end up looking like a plucked chicken unless he shaved often. Obviously you have a fixation, or you would not be concerned about the hair on the back of your legs being "disheveled." However, if shaving your body turns you on, go ahead and do it. It's your business and harms no one. <r -fr -tr Dear Ann: A while back you published a letter in the Rochester, Minn., Post-Bulletin telling your readers what to do if they choke on a piece of food, but you didn't say what one should do if one is alone. Here are the instructions: Stand up. Keep your knees straight. Bend over, as to touch your toes. Never mind if you can't quite reach them. Then throw your arms high into the air. Several months ago I choked on a piece of meat. My husband was with me, but before he could get around to my side of the table I tried this maneuver and the meat popped right out onto the floor. I hope you will give this suggestion as wide coverage as possible, it could save some lives. — W. C. in Minn. Dear W. C.: Here it is. Thanks from all of us. I had never seen this one before.

Scalp acne caused by much brushing Persistent acne around the scalp margins — in front of ears, on the back of the neck or forehead — can be caused by repeated stroking and brushing which some hair styles require. Cursillistas elects officers New officers for the 1981-62 year hate been elected by the Cursillistas of Salina.

Anyone wishing additional information regarding a cursillo may call one of the officers.
