Main 2nd honorable DEAR READERS: If the col umn today is macabre or depressing, I apologize to those of you who look to me for a laugh. But I was deeply moved by a Kalamazoo teen-ager who asked me to reprint this fantasy which appeared in the Tiger Tattler the school paper of Lawrence. Here it is. Title: In Love With Life-or How It Would Be If I Were Killed In an Automobile Accident. Agony claws my mind. I am n statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was. overwhelmed with grief and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands 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 too 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 until 8:40 tomorrow morning I ran to the parking lot — ex cited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss. 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 me.. 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 Hints From Heloise Dear Heloise: Here's a hint I haven't seen before. The instant dry creamer for coffee is supposed to be sprinkled on top of the hot coffee after the coffee has been poured in the cup. You would be surprised the number of people who put instant coffee and cream in the cup and then pour boiling water over 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 top it just seems to blend right in, oh, so beautifully! One day my daughter was here. 1 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 her 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. Fraley You know I'll have to "fess" up! I was a doubting Thomas — just couldn't believe it would inuke a difference. But, I tried it once, thought my eyes were deceiving me, 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 it—makes nil the difference in the world. And while I'm fesslng up, might as well make the slate clean—1 was one of the worst offenders, but live and learn! Heloise Dear Heloise: I 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 me? I would like to know how they got started and what items arc put in them. Thank you. Janis My, my, but that does bring back a bit of nostalgia. Tormenting Rectal Itch Of Hemorrhoidal Tissues Promptly Relieved Gives Prompt, Temporary Relief from Such Burning Itch and Pain in Many Cases. Tho burning itch and pain ' inflam- pain cau.sod by infection and mation in hemorrhoidal tissues cun cause much suffering. But there is an exclusive formulation that in many cases gives prompt relief for hours from this itch and pain so that the sufferer is mure comfortable ugnin. It also actually helps shrink swelling of hemorrhoidal tissues caused by inflammation and infection. Tests by doctors on hundreds of patients in New York City, Washington, D.C. and at a Midwest Medical Center reported similar successful rosults in many cases. This is the same medication you can buy at any drug counter undor the name Preparation /•/*. Preparation H also lubricates lo protect the inflamed surface area and it doesn't sting or smart. In fact, it has very soothing qualities which make it especially helpful during the night when itching becomes more intense. There's no other formula like Preparation H. In ointment or suppository form. 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.

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 charge, "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 me up! Get me out of here. I can't bear to see my mom To Run Stories After Wedding In keeping with the tradition that a bride should not be seen in her wedding drdss before the ceremony, The News will not publish Sunday weddings with pictures until the week following the wedding.

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 bg glad to help you with your problems.

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 wants 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 fact, 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 those from other schools. " Mi Next Monday this column will be conducted by Bill Elliott of The Elliott Mortuary.
