THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, Jan. 17, 1963 Bit Her Lip MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A freight train slammed into an automobile and carried it along for 80 yards before the woman driver leaped to safety Wednesday. The woman, Mrs. Ronald Scobey, 20. suffered a split lip. "It's funny about that lip," she said later. "I was so shook up I think I bit it after the wreck." Flats or Heels Pumps or Ties Leather, Patent or Cloth You must see them!

Main 'Sells for Less" Phone CH 2-2316 Hints From Heloise Use Damp Broom On Stairway Rug JL •/ ^x By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Folks: For those who have carpeted stairways. . . here's the answer to preserving rugs, energy, and keeping 'em clean. These carpets may be kept clean in many ways. For those who have tank-type vacuum cleaners, I find it does a thorough job. Beginning at either the top or bottom of the stairway and using you small attachment—such as we use to clean upholstery with — we can get into every nook and corner. However, this lakes so much energy a n 1 moving of the tank that I do not do it often.' Another way is to use a dampened broom. I do this by making a weak solution of neutral detergent and dipping the broom in it, hitting it against the side of the pail so that it is not too wet, and sweeping the entire carpet from top to bottom. Then, beginning at the bottom Helois* step, use the vacuum attachment to suck up any moisture and soil that comes loose until you reach the top step! I am sure that not many women realize it but the riser (or the carpet which lays on the edge of the step and is seldom walked on) also accumulates dust. This should be vacuumed once in awhile also. In between thorough cleanings I have found a miniature carpet sweeper — which can be purchased in the children's toy departments — was the answer to all of my troubles. This little carpet sweeper is a toy. But it works! It is so narrow that it fits on each step with no effort, the brush still goes around as all wheels of the car| pet sweeper stay on the steps. I It is easily emptied because it is so small that it fits over any waste basket and, best of all, its light weight saves more energy. It would pay any homemaker to purchase one of these toy, miniature carpet sweepers. They are quite useful in many small spots such as when an ashtray is spilled — bang! Why lose your temper and go get the big sweeper when you can just pick up this lightweight one. and in a jiffy it's all clean? Our toy sweeper is kept in a closet near the dining room. After each meal I find that this is excellent to pick up residue from the floor of the dining room carpet which the children have dropped and so forth. Heloise Dear Heloise: I sometimes use a thin cheese spread on my bread instead of butter when making sandwiches. Try it. It's wonderful. Mrs. Don Fitzpatrick FOR GETTING THINGS DONE BY PHONE So maybe the rain is coming down in sheets. Lightning flashing. Thunder booming. No matter how wretched the weather, you can keep right on using your telephone. Some years ago, bad weather might have affected your telephone service. Today, things are different. Most telephone cables are now filled with pressurized dry air. If a cable springs a leak, the force of the escaping dry air holds out moisture and keeps phones working. An alarm automatically tells repairmen the location of the break. Usually, the trouble is fixed and you never know anything was wrong. So go ahead and use your phone when the sky opens up and the rain comes down. Pressurizing telephone cables to give you stormproof dependability is another improvement made with you in mind. Our never-ending goal is to improve your telephone service and make it more valuable to you. SOUTHWESTERN BELL Making telephone service better to serve you better :• Dear Heloise: For those who wear white nylon uniforms, shirts, and so forth: to remove kitchen black, grease, or even car grease, rub in the spot some clean white lard as soon as possible. After massaging it into the material pour on a liquid detergent to remove the lard. Soak a few minutes in hot water and wash as usual. This will work even if the garment has been washed before finding the spot, but if this has happened it will take a lot more rubbing. Bunny V. It works! Heloise Dear Heloise: To keep a comforter or satin quilt on the bed, I tack a small sheet • blanket or outing-flannel blanket on the back of the quilt and it works fine. A Reader Dear Heloise: Do not laugh, but I have found a way to keep from moving heavy chests of drawers, the refrigera- tor and heavy i-i.. i I vacuum.. These have a "toe" space that is not big enough to get any at* tachment under but .plenty big enough to see under. Just take your vacuum to your chest or piece of furniture first and point the blower in at that little toe space! Then. . . stand by to vacuum up the dust as it comes rolling out at your feet! Sure cleans it out. . Mrs. Question Mark Beveled and Plain Edge MIRRORS For Any Room in Your Home SUFFRON Glass Co. 418 N Main Ph CH 2-2519 AtP's FOOD COSTS DOWN! COME SEE... YOU'LL SAVE!
