C-* , M«y JO. Itn The M* MMT Uk». i Packing itips tor ·** i brides Ready for honeymoon Marsha Taylor is ready for the honeymoon with her set of Samsonite luggage from Hillsteads Department Store. Besides the luggage, she found a striped Jody dress and floppy sun and fun hat that is just right for traveling after the wedding. Miss Taylor and her fiance John Voelker are planning a July 10 wedding. After the eicitement of your wedding day, you'll be off for your honeymoon. Whether it's a big trip or a small one, you'll save a lot of bother if you plan your packing carefully. Here are some hints: Pack shoes, hair dryers, clocks, and other heavy things at the hinge side of your suitcase -- they'll be on the bottom when you carry it, so they won't crush your clothes. Pack firmly. Loosely- packed clothes will shift around in transit and wrinkle more easily. Pack in sections and not in layers -- sportswear together, evening wear together, lingerie together. It's easier to get at things that way, and easier to repack firmly. Distribute weight evenly on both sides of your suitcase (pack one heavy article at cither end of the hinge), and it will be easier to carry. Fasten all buttons and z i p p e r s , t h e n f o l d e v e r y t h i n g i n t h i r d s lengthwise -- a lengthwise fold will come out naturally as you wear the garment. Pack all liquids (shampoo, c o s m e t i c s ) a n d aerosols in a separate carry-on case. Where shall we sit? Gladys Stevenson offers help with metric system Ethan Allen's Heirloom Collection caught bride-to-be Penny Duncan's eye at Bitney Furniture, Inc. This dining room ensemble comes with comb back mate's chairs and an oval table with two 15" leaves. The china cabinet and three-drawer buffet have adjustable shelves and a lighted interior to highlight your china. Just right for a starter set for the newlyweds! EDITOR'S NOTE: With the many changes arising with the metric system, Gladys Stevenson of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, completed a short article on the system. The article covers the problems with weights and measures and new equivalents when preparing favorite recipes. "A pint's a pound the world around" is no longer a truth. The United States is the only nation that- still uses the English system of weights and measures, and we are preparing to change to the Metric System. This system is already being used for many commodities. For example, the terms "35 mm film," "a 2 carat diamond," "1800 calories per day," or "50 mg. of vitamin C" are used by almost everyone, yet you say the Metric System is like a foreign language. Some people may never use this system completely because they will hang onto their bathroom scale, their measuring cups and spoons and their measuring tapes. But, as times goes on, they will no longer be understood. To say you weigh 110 pounds rather than 50 kilograms will fee obsolete. The Metric System makes you sound much thinner. Weighing is a more accurate means of establishing quantities than are volume measures. Many of the household items are used in amounts too small to be weighed accurately by using pounds and ounces as the units. However, kilograms and grams are very satisfactory. If the meat cutter misses the weight of hamburger by one ounce you will have lost 28.4 grams, but if he weighs in the Metric System he will at most miss by 5 grams, which is about one-tenth of an ounce. The abbreviations that will be in common usage are: ·Kilo or Kg -- kilogram mg -- milligram -ml -- miUiliter m -- meter mm -- millimeter gm or g gram L - liter Km -- Kilometer Cm -- centimeter C -- Celsius The equivalents that will be useful in translating the now common weights and measures to the Metric System are: 454 g. - 1 Ib. 1 Kg. - 2.2 Ib. 28.4 g. - 1 oz. 1 Km - */« mile (approx) 1 m -- 39.37 inches Hagestad has parties for engaged girls A new Welcome Wagon service, the Nearly Wed Party, was introduced to the Flathead area this year to congratulate and honor engaged girls. Merchants participating in the Welcome Wagon program consider the bride as a guest in the community and welcome her in the tradition of hospitality at the Nearly Wed Party. The engaged girls receive a box of gifts and in- store gift cards from the sponsoring merchants. She and her guests see beautiful displays, enjoy wedding cake and punch, and visit with other engaged girls and guests. The Nearly Wed Parties take place every three months at the Outlaw Inn with Betty Hagestad as hostess. The next party will be in !ate August. There is no charge for the party and engaged girls and guests are invited to attend the special parties. For reservations contact Mrs. Hagestad at 7553697. 1 L - 1.057 qts. For rapid translation in the market -- 1 Ib. of meat is about V 2 Kg.; 1 qt of milk is 1 L., and 300 ft. of fencing is approximately 100 m. If you go completely metric in the kitchen, the fallowing are equivalents that will help you change your favorite recipes: 120 g. -- 1 c. whole wheat flour 110 g. -- 1 c. all purpose flour 100 g. -- 1 c. cake flour 200 g. -- 1 c. sugar (brown or white) 114 g. -- I c. non-fat milk solids 200 g. - 1 c. fat or oil 48 g. -- 1 medium egg 30 g. - 1 medium egg white 18 g. -- I medium egg yolk 244 ml. -- 1 c. whole, non-fat or butter milk, and water or other liquids 5 g. -- 1 t. baking powder or soda 5 g. - 1 t. salt Biscuits then become: 200 g. flour (2 e.), 100 g. fat (Vi c.), 5 g. salt (1 t.), 10 g. baking powder (3 t.), 180 ml. milk (% c.) For your convenience, the new liquid measuring cups have milliliters on one side and cups on the other. If you check cans and packages in the market, you will find in most cases the weights and measures given in both the English and Metric Systems. Next year ask Santa for a metric balance so that you may check for errors at the market. college notes North Carolina GREEN'SBOHO, N .
