Ann Landers Take Your Own Wife To Party Ann Dear Ann Landers: This is no phony letter. It's strictly on the level and I need your opinion. A social craze has hit this town. It's called "Mix-Mates." The invitation we received yesterday reads as follows: "You are cordially invited for cocktails and dinner at Bill and Mary X's home on Janu- - ; ary 25th. B u t you can't come with your husband. H e is invited, of course, but he must escort someone else's wife. You will not know the identity ol our escort until he arrives. "Your husband will receive a phone call soon assigning a date. But it must be a deep, dark secret and he is not to tell ah- one — not even you. Of course you will be escorted home by the man who brough you. R.S.V.P." I don't want to be a wet firecracker but the whole idea offends me. My husband says it's novel and should be fun. What would we tell our teenage children about such a party? Help. Please. - FRAIDY CAT Dear Fraidy: Tell your teenage children that married people go to parties together and they come home together, which is why you and their father cannot accept this tasteless and revolting invitation. There's enough extra - marital hanky - panky without changing partners for kicks and calling it novelty night. Dear Ann Landers: Your column is an excellent forum for presenting issues to the public. I feel this one is sufficiently important to merit your support. I'm not selling anything — just trying to cut carnage and multi- lation on highways and city streets. Do you know who the real menaces are — the honest t'goodness threats to life and limb? It's not the teenagers as you might believe — it's those old gaffers who got their drivers' licenses back in 1902, when they didn't even have to take a test. Year after year they send in for renewals and they get them. My great uncle is 83 years old. He can't see across the living room. Half the time the battery in his hearing aid is dead and he doesn't know it. His lumbago is so bad he's on crutches most of the time. Yet the law says he can drive from New York to California if he feels like it. How about crusading for some sensible legislation?—F.J, Dear F.J.: Most states, I am happy to report, have abandoned the antiquated system of renewing driving licenses automatical- iy. In Illinois, for example, all drivers who reach the age of 70 must take a test as if they were beginners. Since this column appears in 50 states I would be interested in learning which states still have the horse and buggy laws. If you will let me know, maybe we can shame them into action, Dear Ann Landers: There's a woman who works in this office who thinks she is Queen Elizabeth. Her desk is on the aisle. Since she has been here since the Yean One, the boss, out of respect for old age, introduces her to all the big shots who come this way. It is sickening the way she gets up, and extends her hand with a regal flourish. Isn't this bad manners? Shouldn't a woman remain seated and wait for the gentleman to extend his hand? How about putting the ignoramus straight?-B.D. AND C. Dear B.D.: Sorry, but the Queen is right. It's perfectly proper for a woman to stand at her desk when being introduced to a person of importance. And, of course, the woman always extends her hand first. Are you tempted to smoke because the crowd does? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Smoking," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Many people do not like to put clorinated water on their plants and ferns. To solve this problem — after hearing all my neighbors who, are horticulturists — I came across the answer after discussing it with a friend of ours who is a chemist. When I defrost my refrigerator and deep - freeze T take the blocks and pieces of ice and lay them upon each' plant and fern in my house. I found that this melted slowly which watered the roots of the plants gently, and, so far as I know and my friend the chemist tells me, there was no chlorine involved! The chemist said that by the time the air hits the frozen ice which has been placed on top of the plant, the water it makes ... is warm by the time it hits the root of the plant—thus preventing root shock! Could my educated friend be right? I take many magazines and periodicals on these subjects and never has anyone given me the answer until my friend brought this to my attention last week. Doris C. Dear Doris: So far as I know, I don't see how you could be wrong. But our question now is—why? If anyone can give us the solution to this "problem" and why it works we would most appreciate it. I have researched through the entire library and this solution, or the answer, is not there! Address your letters to Heloise in care of this paper. I am most excited about this woman's new discovery. Heloise Dear Heloise: I keep my rayon satin comfort on the bed by covering it with ten yards of printed material. This costs only about 49 cents a yard and the total price for this project is only $4.90. I tear this 10 yards of ma terial in half which leaves me with two 5-yard pieces. I then sew these two lengths together along the selvage. Fold this in half. Sew up both sides, forming a pillow-case type sack. On the open end, sew buttons and buttonholes. (Snap or other type fasteners could be used.) Insert your satin comfort in this comfort bag. When putting it on the bed turn the buttons and buttonholes towards the bottom of the bed. Results? A comfort that never slips, a cover that may be removed in a jiffy for laundering, Mix the ground meat with salad dressing, sweet relish or chopped pickles, minced onion, etc. Use this for sandwiches or. . . use ground beef mixed with cracker crumbs, butter, minced onion and enough tomato sauce to make meatballs. These are real good. I have used them in our restaurant and they are well-liked. Old Restaurant Cook. Dear Heloise: When my bath towels become thin and worn in the middle, I tear off the thick border at each end, turning the raw edges in and stitching around all sides on the sewing machine. This makes wonderful pot holders that can be thrown in the laundry. When suede shoes get old and worn and seemingly past wearing . . . give them a good coat of liquid shoe polish (there are special types sold for suede.) Set back and let them dry thoroughly, preferably several days or a week. Then take some sandpaper and rub the suide gently. This will remove all of the scuff and slick spots. Love, Heloise. Dear Heloise: The easiest way I have found to clean my can opener is to take an old tooth brush and dip it in cleaner and just scrub back and forth. Mrs. Gerald Keller. Oleg Collection Shows Elegance and no more "slippy" comforts. Eleanor. Dear Heloise: For the wives who want to know how to use left-over beef or lunch meat, put it through a food grinder.

Main — Ottawa — CH 2-2445 Please send me free "5 Stocks to Buy for 1903." Name Address City ... State By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Oleg Cassini, Mrs. John F. Kennedy's dress designer, did the twist, the Russian Cossack dance, acted out tips on keeping one's weight down, and incidentally introduced his spring collection. The tanned, mustachioed Bob Hope of the garment district was the same Oleg that the more than 200 style writers always count on to enliven the semi-annual press week previews. He made few references to his best-known customer except to pat himself on the back, partly in jest, because the First Lady continues to appear at the top of the world's best-dressed list. "I've been accused of capitalizing on my recent glory," said Cassini, whose name has become associated with luggage and nail polish among other things since his appointment as Jacqueline Kennedy's couturier. "Well, I've got just about the same amount of money I had 10 years ago but I like to expand into other design areas." "The time has come to get clothes a little closer to the body. Not too close though. Remember the time I introduced the sausage look?" roared the occasionally self-effacing designer as unsmiling models traversed the runway. White knit variations with nautical seasoning and a tasteful collec- We Deliver To Your Door 6 days a week SELECT DAIRY CH 2-1607 tion of bosomy sheaths were his idea of the little-bit-closer look. "With this dress the front is very tight in the balcony, the rest is degage," he said, as a girl in a fitted bodice turned around to exhibit a loose-fitting back-buttoned overblouse effect. "Now everything's in the back," Cassini said of design detailing and yet there was more off than on the backs of some of his models. Necklines occasionally plunged daringly in front. Despite a long and impressive parade of elegant costumes, Cas sini was a design hero for his rain clothes. Italian silk print water- shedding fabrics had been cut into sleek and unrainlike coats, suits and coat and dress combinations. Only hint of their stormy purposes were the cloud patterns on the materials. Club Forecast Thnrsday BAXTER SOCIAL HOUR, Mrs. Lewis Stewart FLA, Gordon Daugharthy home, Mr§. A. S.
