I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I wa,'/ overwhelmed with grief and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thou.sands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called "Traffic Fatalities." The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was loo cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. "Special favor," I pleaded. "All the kids drive." When the 2:50 bell rang I threw my books in the locker. I was free It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off — going too fast. Taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a deafening crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over mc., Then I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn't feel anything. Hey, don't pull that sheet over my head. I can't be dead. I'm only 17. I've got a date tonight, I'm supposed to grow up and have a wonderful life. I haven't lived yet. I can't be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks had to identify me. Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom's eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked like an old man. He told the man in cliarge, "Yes — he is our son." The funeral was a weird experience. I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They passed by, one by one, and looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked away. Please — somebody — wake mc up! Get me out of here. I can't bear to see my mom Hints From Heloise Schmitt Paint 4th & Main Oufstanding Frames Stitch-Up with SAVINGS • Beautiful Fabrics • Remnant Prices • MARTIN'S Remnant Shop 2307 N. Main Dear Heloisc: Here's a hint I haven't seen before. The instant dry creamer for coffee is supposed to be sprinkled on lop of the hot coffee after the coffee has been poured in the cup. You would bo surprised the number of people who put instant coffee and cream in the cup and then pour boiling wa ler ovei' it, or pour hot coffee from the pot over the cream. It just doesn't work as well. For some reason when that cream is sprinkled on lop it just scorns to blond right in, oh, so beautifully! One day my daughter was here, I used instant coffee and cream. She wanted to know how I kept it from curdling. I told her and she was amazed. She said she would tell the girls at hei- office . . . they were always complaining about the coffee curdling and they were one of the many who put the dry instant coffee cream in first. Mrs. Fruley You know I'll have to "fcss" up! I was u doubting Thomas — j u s t couldn't believe it would make a difference. But, I tried it once, thought my eyes were deceiving mc, tried it again (could be Just a coincidence) . . . but the third time I mixed up the brew I was convinced. By Heloise Cruse I just gotta admit Itr-makes all the difference in the world. And while I'm fessing up, might as well make the slate clean—I was one of the worst offenders, but live and icnrn! Heloise Dear Heloise: 1 am a 14-year-old girl who is beginning a hope chest. You don't hear much about them any more so if you have any information on them, would you please help mo? I would like to know how llicy got slai-to(l and what items are put ill them. Thank you, Janis My, my, but that docs bring b a c k a bit of nostalgia. You're sooo right, you don't hear much about them today. You've got me wondering too. Do girls still have hope chests and do they still put in the same sort of things that their grandmothers did in their day? It would be interesting to hear from you engaged gals and from you moms with marriageable daughters. Take a few minutes and help us out. Janis has gotten us curious.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son called yesterday to say he is coming home for a week. He asked me to reserve a room for him and his girl at a nearby motel. He added, "Please get a room with a large bed. We don't like twin beds." I told him I d i d n't approve of the "now generation" sleeping arrangements and to make his own reservations. His voice became brittle, (as it always does when he becomes irritated) and he replied, "I am 23 years old and I don't need your approval. All I am asking you to do is you make the call. Will you?" I said, "No, I will not." Was I wrong?—North Platte Mom. . DEAR MOM: Your son had no business asking you to make that call. Had you done so you would have been condoning the sleeping arrangement—which is what he was after.. You out-foxed him, Doll. (Ann Landers will he glad to help you with your problems.

SPELL DOWN By JIM ELLIOTT With school starting again it is appropriate to recall the old practice which most of us adults remember of having spelling m a t- ches during the school term. This was a practice handed down from the old country school house days and many Jim Elliott older folks hold the opinion that our schools turned out better spellers in those days. 'Not only did the schools hold spelling matches within the school, but there were matches with other neighboring schools in which the entire community sometimes took part, The school chillren would compete against children of their own grade in the other school and then there would be a contest between the adults of the two communities. Sometimes there would be prizes given for the individuals and the school which won. The old fashioned art of spelling shouldn't be neglected in an age of written communication. Who want.s a stenographer who is unable to spell? What paper wants a reporter who is not able to spell? A teacher of all people .should be able to spell. Who wants a clerk who Is unable to spell? As a matter of tact, who wants an executive who is unable to spell? One advantage of the old- fashioned .spell-downs Is the competitive spirit that it engendered. Somehow knowing how to spell became more important if we could test our ability against the others of our class or against tho.% from other schools. ' tiu Next Monday this column will be conducted by Bill Elliott oi The Elliott Mortuary.
