Family FftllX >AY, JUNE 17,19M Soroptimists Install Officers Officers were installed during a meeting of the Alton Soropti- mist Club Thursday evening in Mineral Springs Hotel. Mrs. George Crivello began her second term'as president. Mrs. Crivello is a six-year member of Soroptimist, and has served as treasurer and recording secretary, During the past year she served as treasurer of the SS. Peter and Paul's Parents Club, and is a two-year member of the club's board of directors. She is associated with her Window Ideas, Blanket Care Noted By MRS. CATHERINE MAUCK Madison County Home Adviser Just when it seems there are no more really different and ingenious ideas for home decorating, along comes something bright as a new penny —using plastic webbing, best known for its use on garden chairs, to make window curtains. Vertical strips of white plastic webbing make a distinctive window treatment for a boy's bedroom, den, family room, basement recreation room, or any room in a summer cottage—in short, anywhere that an informal motif is desired. Plastic webbing—available by the yard in a choice of colors- is simple for even an inexperienced seamstress to work with, because little actual sewing is involved. Here's how it's done: cut several strips of webbing the length of the window, and sew a loop of any fabric to the Moro Girl Is Engaged MISS BOLIN Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bolin of Moro are announcing the engagement of their daughter, Mary Alberta, to John Robert Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Smith of Satem, 111. An Aug. C wedding is being planned. The bride-elect is a graduate of Edwardsvilte High School, and of Southern Illinois University where she majored in elementary education. She has been employed as a teacher in the Edwardsville school district for the past year. Her fiance, a graduate of the University of Illinois School of Engineering, is employed by the firm of Rochester, Goodell, Moldovan ft Spain in Salem. top and bottom edges of each strip. You will need two round cafe curtain rods for each window—one for the top and one for the bottom. Then simply insert a rod through the fabric loops at each end, leaving one-inch spaces in between the strips. Place the rods in brackets at the top and bottom of the window and presto! You have a neat, tailored window treatment that won't be disturbed by the highest wind or stormiest weather. In fair weather, the webbing strips allow plenty of light to come through because of their loosely woven construction and the spacing. You don't always have to take webbing down to keep it clean, a once-over with a sponge dipped into hot soap or detergent suds will remove surface dirt right at the window. However, it should get a "real" laundering at least once a season. Swish the strips through hot suds, rinse under the faucet, shake off excess water, wipe with a towel—and hang them back in place. Follow the Rules Only washing recommended for electric blankets. Before you put your electric blanket tp "bed" for the summer, remember that all manufacturers agree on this basic rule: washing is the only safe way. to keep electric bedding clean. In fact, it should be laundered often, before soil becomes imbedded in the fibers. When automatic blankets first came out, the idea of washing was not easy to accept, but women gradually lost their timidity about putting .anything electrical into the suds. If you are about to launder your first electric blanket, heed these simple rules: First, disconnect the control • Receives RNA Pin Mrs. Ellanore Landre of Blu- Fountain Manor is the recipient of a 50-year membership pin presented by Royal Neighbors of America, Maarguerite Camp. The pin and a gift from the Alton RNA members were presented to Mrs. Landra by Mrs. Hattie Frey and Mrs, William Gillespie at the nursing home. Cooking Cue* In making Western Sandwiches, scrambled eggs are enriched with onion, green pepper and ham for the filling. But, if you like, you may use dried beef instead of the ham. Just saute the beef with the onion and green pepper before adding to the beaten eggs. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND Can aspirin compete w ith ''miracle drugs"?

Second, scrub soiled binding lightly with a sudsy soft brush and pre-treat any stains that same way. Next, soak me entire blanket in cool suds for about 10 minutes. Then put it into clean suds—as warm as for a baby's bath. Wash and rinse it at the same temperature, using an adequate amount of soap or detergent and plenty of water. Avoid prolonged machine agitation or tumbling. Instructions usually suggest not more than three minutes of machine action. A short spin cycle will remove most of the water, and any remaining moisture can be gently pressed out by hand; never put an electric blanket Ann Landers through a wringer. ' For hand-washing, use the bathtub which is large enough to immerse even a double blanket without crowding. Observe the same rules as to water temperature. Instead of rubbing, use a plumber's plunger to "suck" the suds through the fabric. This loosens soil and eliminates lifting and squeezing the blanket. Manufacturers recommend draping an electric blanket over two parallel lines to dry, straightening the. .edges and corners. And remember this: Electric blankets are permanently moth-proofed during manufacture and must not be given further anti-moth treatment. * husband in the Crivello Food Shop.

Several secretaries, I am told, eat their lunch at their desks and then go out for what they call a lunch hour. They sometimes j return as late as 3 p.m. and pass the word that they had to go to the bank, thej doctor, the dentist, or shopping.] The men and! the women in the office call each Ann Landers other "Doll, Baby, Honey, Dear" and other pet names. They kiss one another when they meet on the street or at a party, or any place at all. If they are so friendly in public what do you think goes on in private? -JUST A DUMB HOUSEWIFE DEAR DUMB: Probably nothing—or they'd be more reserved in the presence of others, I suspect the bearer of all these glad tidings, who happily reports the goings on at the office, is a bit of a troublemaker. It is a fact that many office workers must do their shopping or banking and see doctors and dentists during their lunch hours, because it's the only time available. * * * * DEAR ANN: A friend of my husband's has spent the last two months crying on my neck over a woman he had loved and lost.

There is evidence that physicians in general practice, along with pediatricians and internists, will fuse into one specialty. As reported in Medical World News, this will evolve Mo a new type of family physician capable of treating most of the <M)ments of children and adults. According to Dr. Edmund D.

I didn't realize I had such persuasive powers but after a 20-minute conversation she said, "You are right.' Jim is a won, derful person. I shouldn't have broken up with him. Please ask him to call and we'll pick up where we left off," When I told Jim of my success he said, "I don't want her now. She has caused me so much grief I could never trust her again." I almost went through the floor. I told my husband and he was very unsympathetic. He said it served me right for getting involved in other people's affairs. The woman has been calling to ask why she hasn't heard from Jim. I don't know what to say. After having told her that Jim is madly in love with her I can't bring myself to tell her he has suddenly changed his mind. She will think I am nuts. Please give me some advice. -CUPID FOR LAST TIME DEAR CUPID: It's always a mistake to try to glue together the broken romances of friends. If they can't put the pieces together, forget it, Doll.

DEAR ANN? I am a 14-year- old girl who would like some suggestions on what to talk about when I am dancing with a boy. I can't think of anything to say and I feel real stupid. Thanks for your help.—MUSIC WITHOUT WORDS DEAR WITHOUT: Good dancers don't talk—they just dance. When you see a couple conversing madly on the dance floor it's a safe bet that at least one of them is a very poor dancer.

A Lovelier You Swimming Trims Figure From Gourmet Cookbook Celebrity Recipe BORIS KARLOFF scares people for a 'living, though how such a gentle, distinguished looking man could'frighten anyone seems a puzzle. Why, he tells children's stories to little tots and they think he must be Kris Kringle's kindly old uncle. A grownup who remembers Frankenstein and his monster and other lurid movies might suppose that Mr. Karloff's favorite recipe would be compounded of wolfbane and batwings, seasoned with salamander tails. Or at the very least, it would be an exotic mixture from the foggy moors of Transylvania, properly served by a spooky butler who mysteriously appears out of the wall surrounded by eerie wisps of ectoplasm. Not so. Mr. Karloff is a witty and urbane gentleman of English birth who began life as William Henry Pratt, and he loves fine foods, even as you and I. Mexican food is a favorite of this veteran actor and of all his favorites the special one is Guacamole, an avocado-based sauce that he makes in a spicy, tantalizing fashion. Guacamole is served on a bed of lettuce as a salad or with fried-tortilla wedges as an appetizer, or simply as a sauce. BORIS KARLOFF'S FAVORITE GUACAMOLE 2 ripe avocados 1 medium ripe tomato, chopped fine 1 small onion, minced 1 tablespoon canned green chili peppers, chopped 1 tablespoon lemon juice. 2 teaspoons sherry dash of cayenne, optional salt and pepper to taste Peel and mash avocados; add minced onion, chili peppers, and chopped tomato; then add lemon juice, sherry, and seasonings, being sure to blend well.

The Answer: To get your figure in swim-suit shape in • hurryi there's no better form of exercise than swimming. So take your bikini swimming M often as you can! But if you don't happen to have a swimmin' hole handy, you can get the same results by swimming on land. Simply lie, lace down, on a broad, sturdy stool and do this land version of the crawl: 1. Stretch out with arms extended forward, palms of hands facing floor and legs together. 2. Pull right arm straight down and back until it lies against body; bend and raise elbow as far out and up as possible; immediately reach forward to starting position. Similarly move left arm, beginning as right elbow bends. . , 3. Accompany arm motions with flutter-kicks of legs; quick* ly pump them up and down from hip joints, keeping knees relaxed. 4. Work for maximum stretch in waist and arms, and pull in thigh muscles. All motions should be purposeful (not hectic), continuous and rhythmical. After ten minutes every muscle in your body will feel the good of the exercise. Your figure will show it with trimmer, firmer line after just a few weeks of workouts.

When this hand was played we sat back and waited for the opening lead. Lew Mathe held the West cards, and we could feel sure he would find the one lead to give declarer trouble. Mathe thought it over and picked out the killing lead— the singleton heart. Walter AvareUi, playing the North- South cards for Italy, took the first trick in dummy with the ace of hearts and returned the jack of spades as though leading for a finesse. Bob Hamman, East, was not deceived. He stepped up with the ace of spades and returned a heart for his partner to ruff. Not any old heart, mind yen, but the queen of hearts; Mathe got the message.
