Dear Ann Landers: Have you ever wondered what goes on with the married women who work the graveyard shift in our plants? I recently joined this jolly set and have had a good opportunity to observe. During lunch hour and coffee break I witness the same type of pairing off you'd expect to see in a college cafeteria. You can always find the same c o u- ples eating together, laughing, chatting, and acting very chummy, indeed. Nobody can tell me this is good clean fun- wholesome company spirit. One gal even brings lunch for the guy — fried chicken and corn fritters. The baloney and cheese sandwiches his wife prepares go into the trash can. I wonder what the husbands of these night-shift wives think goes on in these factories? They are stuck at home with the kids every night while Ma is having herself a ball. Why don't these bubble-heads get smart and keep the bimbos home where they belong? -NOT FOOLED Dear Not Fooled; Yes, that's some ball those married women are having — beating their way to work at midnight, on buses and streetcars. And when they get home at 8:00 a.m., all they have to do is get the kids ready for school, wash a few clothes, iron a little, clean the house and fall into bed. I promise you, Big Mouth, if their husbands could swing es. If she wishes to put a period to the friendship because she can no longer use you, then you haven't lost much. Dear Ann Landers: My first cousin and I are both in our early 50's. Neither of us has ever been married. We are mature and sensible people v who feel that a relationship based on mutual respect and admiration could be a lasting and rewarding one. We've always been fond of each other. Will you speculate as to how a marriage of this kind would be accepted by our family and friends? Would they think it strange? Do you feel it would work out? Thank you.-COUSINS Dear Cousins: Some states will not permit first cousins to marry. Check and determine if this is true in your state. If it is, then go to a state where you may be married. I see no reason why you should give a hoot how this would be accepted by your friends. If they are good friends, they will be delighted. To learn the difference between a marriage that "settles down" and one that "gets dull," send for Ann Landers' booklet, "What To Expect From Marriage," enclosing with your request 20 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. it BEVERLY ANN CRIST, 3-ycar-oId daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Crist, RFD 4, holds her 6-month-old brother, Allen Alfred.

Social Hour Club Meets THE OTTAWA HERALD *9 Friday, January 18, IMS ' Lemonade Stands Test Of Time By CECILY BROWNSTONE , PORTABLE LEMONADE For roll call yesterday each Baxter Social Hour club metn- t>er said something nice about the member to her left. Mrs. Lewis Stewart was hostess and received a gift. Mrs. Max Shoemaker opened the meeting with group singing followed by devotions by Mrs. Ernest Sink, and the Lord's prayer.

Refreshments were served. Mrs Vernon Stewart was a visitor. Workshop Patterns financially, 95 per cent of these gals would be at home. Dear Ann Landers: This problem concerns a close friend of mine. I like her a great deal but she has one fault which is irritating. She asks to borrow my clothes. I don't care how careful a person is, it's impossible to return a dress or a pair of shoes in exactly the same condition. A seam goes here, a little spot shows up there, a bead comes off — something is bound to happen. For years this woman has asked to borrow everything I own, from an evening coat to my new wig. Never once have I borrowed anything from her. Last night did it. My husband and I went to a dinner party. A half-tipsy woman came up to me TOP OF TOY CHEST IS A FOLDING TABLE PATTERN 252 A TWO-IN-ONE GIFT consisting of a gay toy chest on wheels with a top that makes a play table will delight children and Mother who must keep things picked up.

I said nothing but believe me I was boiling. What excuse can I use to refuse her after all these years, without making an enemy?—PIGEON Dear Pigeon: You don't need an excuse. Just tell her you've decided to stop lending your cloth- Associated Press Food Editor LEAVE IT to a lady of fashion in the 1850's to know the merits of lemonade. Mrs. Sarah Josepha Hale, famous editor of "Godey's Lady's Book," made no bones about this drink. Of lemonade she wrote, "This is the best beverage for social parties; cool, refreshing, pleasant and salubrious." Mrs. Bale's recipe was simple. "Three lemons to a pint of water makes strong lemonade," she directed, and added, "Sweeten to your taste." But Mrs. Hale was not only an arbiter-of fashion. Her immense practically showed whether she was preaching the possibilities of the sewing machine (then a new invention) or whether she was running up a pitcher of lemonade. Another of her recipes could travel around easily to porch, garden or picnic. Called "Excel- ent Portable Lemonade," it was a mixture of sugar and the grated rind and juice of lemon stored in a jar and dissolved in water as wanted. "It will keep a considerable time," practical S. J. H. advised. Over 100 years later, Portable Lemonade is still one of the best hot-weather ideas we know. Here's a fine modern recipe for it made with half sugar and half light corn syrup. Why the syrup? Because it seems to give body to the base and hold the lemon flavor well. It's convenient as can be to comport to your 1962 patio. J /6 cup sugar % cup light corn syrup 2-3 cup water 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind Lemon juice In a small saucepan stir together the sugar, corn syrup, 2-3 cup water and lemon rind. Bring to a boil; boil 5 < minutes. Pour through a fine - mesh strainer; cool. Store in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator until needed. Makes 1 1 A cups lemon syrup base. For each serving, place 2 tablespoons of the base and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a tall glass; add 2-3 cup cold water; fill with ice cubes. Stir vigorously and serve.
