2 - Friday. July 19, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Housewives List 'Why Don'f Theys" For Consideration Of Manufacturers By GAY PAULEY UPl Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI) —The nation's housewives never run low on ideas for improving the manufacturers' products. The latest list of "why don't they?" from a consumer consultant panel arrived on this desk today. The women offered suggestions ranging from a plea for soup without onions to man-sized paper handkerchiefs packaged in masculine looking containers. National Family Opinion, Toledo, Ohio, compiled these "why don't they?" from letters written by the women consultants. The firm says it has 85,000 home makers enrolled as part time ad visers. One woman wondered why there weren't more of the popular soups made without onions for those who cannot eat the "tasty"" little fellows. The one who wanted the man sized paper hankies indicated the packaging of most of those now available are in feminine looking bo.ves. Other "why don't they?" re quests: —Make a spray can dispenser for grease and oil to be used for baking purposes. Cloth Bass —Put flour in cloth bags as they used to. The cloth was useful in numerous ways when the flour was gone. —Make elastic that wjU last as long as the garments that it is sewn into. —Package lard and other short enings in pre-measured units, as they do for butter and margarine. Use tubes to pack butter or margarine for picnic and travel use to simplify sandwich.making. —Package individual servings of instant tea or coffee. The writer suggested such packages would be easy to carry to work and with a little saccharine also en- BEST SELLERS CoropUed By PublUher*.

PY S-TSOS We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT, The surest way to lose friends and alienate people is to hold forth at great length on any of the foUowmg subjects: Your health. No one wants a long, involved answer to a polite "How are you?" Your children. One short, amus ing anecdote is permissible. But stop there. Friends unknown to the group you're with. You can't e.xpect people to care about persons they've never met Your social life. It's all right for you to be impressed with the places to which you are invited, but don't expect eanybody else to be. Firm opinions on any subject you don't know much about. Ne\t time you hear someone sound off on a subject about which she knows nothing, watch the boredom on the faces of her listeners. Give your opinions on any subject if they are based on facts. Otherwise, admit you don't know enough about the subject to have a definite opinion. Any pointless story, told just to bring in the names of important people. That's about as boring as anyone can get. You run no risk of boring your audience if you talk about them rather than about yourself. And if your main desire is to entertain rather than to impress, you won't be a dull companion. ST. cciettf MSS JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor "BRIGADOON" SETS - Infernafionally known artist.

Burkley takes over post in White House WASHINGTON (UPI) - Dr. Janet Travel!, a back specialist and top physician to President Kennedy since he took office, has been replaced by a veteran Navy doctor. Rear Adm. George G. Burkley. • The White House said only that, in effect, the President now has two physicians. But it was apparent that Dr. Travell, the first woman and first civilian to hold the "White House physi cian" title, is now more of a consultant than the physician primarily responsible for the President's health and general medical care. Dr. Travell is still on the gov ernment pajToU and still has a small medical office in the White House, said Press Secretary Pierre Salinger, who denied she has resigned. Burkley, 61, a Pittsburgh, Pa., native and Navy veteran of 22 years, was assigned to the \S'hite House late in the Eisenhower ad ministration.
