Ann Landers Beardless Man Should Shave Dear Ann Landers: I am a 22- year-old fellow, who unfortunately has a very fair and smooth complexion. I have never shaved. I go to a small college and am known around campus as "Baby Face." I am perfectly healthy and normal in every way and I bitterly resent the , thinly d i s- guised implications that perhaps I am otherwise. Every girl I have ever dated sooner or later has raised the question about my fair skin and the absence of a beard. Other fellows on campus have light beards, but they shave once or twice a week. So nobody makes any cracks about them. This constant bugging is getting me down, Ann. I don't know if I can Ann Senior Club Has Meeting Senior Club No. 1 had 21 members present for the meeting yesterday in Youth Center with Mrs. Myrtle Graham in charge. They opened the meeting by singing America and giving the flag salute and sang other songs with Mrs. Lillian Spears at the piano. For entertainment members told jokes and read newspaper clippings. Plans were made for an annual birthday party to be at the next meeting. Mrs. Margaret Williams and Mrs. Madge Marcell served refreshments. Socialettes Acorn Club elected officers at a recent meeting with Mrs. Bob Herring. They are Mrs. Otto Seigle, president; Mrs. Grace Herring, vice - president; Mrs. Clifford James, secretary; Mrs. Clarence, treasurer; and Mrs. Grant Carey, reporter. The bus 1 iness meeting followed a potluck dinner. Mr. and Mrs. Victor Venables, 202 Maple, are parents of Victoria Waylene Venables whose picture appeared in the Herald. Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Ray Miskimon, Williamsburg; and Mr. and Mrs. Van Venables, Bellaire. take it much longer. I've even considered dropping out of school and going to a large university where I will be less noticed. Can you help me?—DEPRESSED Dear Depressed: The condition of a man's skin is no clue to his virility — or lack of it. All of us inherit our skin from our ancestors. I checked out your problem with a skin specialist. He suggested you shave a couple times a week. This will roughen your skin slightly and suggest that you really have a beard. It will not be harmful and is bound to improve your emotional state. Dear Ann Landers: I need some help and I need it fast. Whenever I say to my 13-year- old, "That's enough TV, go do your homework," my husband yells, "Stop nagging the boy." When I tell my 10-year-old to go back upstairs and wash his neck his dad shouts, "Don't be such a perfectionist. He's cleam enough." Yesterday my 11-year-old came to the breakfast table in soiled trousers and a wrinkled shirt which he had worn for two days. I told him to go change h i s clothes. His Dad chimed in, "The boy looks all right. Stop pick ing on him." The kids get the idea I'm a witch left over from Halloween and their Dad is a saint who is taking their part. What can I do?-DEFENSELESS Dear D.: The kids are smarter than you think. And they'll gel smarter as time goes on. They know you want what is best for them and that then* Dad is trying to make life difficult for you It's a mean and petty game he's playing. See a marriage counselor together. Your husband's hostility toward you is damaging to the entire family. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you write for Ann Landers booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped en velope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Sent them to her in care of this news paper enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope. The Herald pays J5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader. Miscellany L. M. S. A quick lesson on how to win the hearts of the fairer sex can be found in "Garden To Order," a new book by Ken Kraft. The lesson is given by David Burpee, president of. the W. Atlee Burpee Seed Co., to an attractive matron in her late forties who remarked that when she was young she felt life would no longer be worthwhile after age 30. Burpee instantly replied, "Oh, I'm sure you won't think so when you get there." Three new garden vegetable varieties arr among a list of future predic t i o n s made by Burpee in Kraft'sbook. Burpee says, "Would you like to grow a little 'tree' tomato you won't ever have to stake? One you can pick fruit from as if were a tiny peach tree? "Or how about a delicious cabbage that even a bloodhound couldn't smell cooking? "Or a crisp, vitamin Lois packed green celery that is actually atringless? "I predict that home gardeners will be able to raise all three of these superb new - model vegetables in the years to come—and many, many more improved things." A good winter • looking - into- spring activity besides studying the seed catalogs would be making hats. Women who would like to make their own hats and are unable to get to a class can learn how easily by mail. All the information needed can be found in a home study course from the Pennsylvania State University. A note says the instructions in the hatmaking course are easy to follow even for the woman with little or no experience in sew- ing. Detailed instructions are given for fashioning hats from fabrics, feathers, flowers, ribbons straws and felts. Supplies need ed and where to buy them an listed. Illustrations show hat con tours suitable for various shapec faces, such as oval, round, lonj and square. A bonus unit in the course is the one on ways to freshen las season's hats and veils. One sec tion is devoted to curing pheas ant feathers. The cost is nominal We can supply the address ir case you are interested. When you come right down t it, some of the "words" smal children devise seem to serve th purpose so well it's a wonde Webster hasn't them in the die tionary. A 3rd grade teacher was stump ed one day when a pupil writing a little composition asked th spelling of what sounded lik "butcept." She still didn't get i when the child repeated so she asked how the pupil was using it "You know," said the lirtl girl, "My pony is all brown but cept his face."

Main Hints From Heloise Try An Eraser On Shoe Marks By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: After a recent children's birthday party we were left with black marks on our hardwood floors from little boys' rubber-heeled shoes. Could you please tell me how to remove them without hurting the wood floor? Trouble. Dear Trouble: These marks are only left by heels which are not real r u b- ber! Genuine r u b- ber does not leave marks. Die you know that? On h a r d- wood floors I Helois* PARTY FARE — Mrs. Milton Jameson, RFD 3, serves Apple Spice Dessert and coffee. For the recipe see story below. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) For A Dessert Quite Nice Combine Apples And Spice Apples and spice combined with other ingredients are bound to come out in something "nice." [n this case it is a dessert which brought "O's" and "Ah's" when Mrs. Milton Jameson , RFD 3. served it to her sorority chapter. Apple Spice Dessert 4 c. peeled, diced apples % c. walnuts 2 c. sugar % c. shorteiiing 2 eggs 2 c. sifted flour 1 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. soda 1 tsp. nutmeg 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. salt 2 c. sifted flour Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add a third of the apples. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to apple mixture. Fold in rest of apples and nuts. Bake in greased 9 x 13- inch baking pan at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. Top with whipped cream to serve. Mrs. Jameson finds the following dish nice enough for company meals as well as satisfying and nourishing for a family. It was served as part of the main course at her sorority progressive dinner. Beef-Noodle Bake l ! /6 c. ground beef salt and pepper to taste % tsp. paprika 2 8-oz. cans tomato sauce 1 8-oz. package noodles 1 c. cottage cheese 3 oz.

Cheddar (American) cheese may be grated on top, if desired. Cover with foil. Bake in 375 - degree oven until bubbly. Serves approximately 8. Do you have both tea and coffee drinkers in your club so that when you entertain you must make both beverages? Try the next recipe instead and see if the whole group won't like it? Mrs, Jameson says she got the recipe from her mother-in-law, Mrs. C. G. Elling, Manhattan. She finds it is hot, sweet and spicy, and because of the tea it is a great "pick-up." Hot Tea Punch 1 cinnamon stick or equivalent of ground cinnamon Vi c. water 1 tsp. grated lemon rind I 1 /* tsp. grated orange rind V4 c. pineapple juice 3 c. boiling water 3 tbsp. tea Combine sugar, water, cinnamon lemon and orange rinds in a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes; then remove cinnamon stick. Add orange, lemon and pineapple juices; keep hot. Pour roiling water over the tea, steep 'rom 3 to 5 minutes and strain. Combine tea and fruit mixtures. Serve hot in tea or punch cups. Wakes 6 to 8 servings. Mrs. Jameson's next recipe proves that a green bean recipe does not have to be complicated to be good. Green Beans, Grenada Drain 1 can whole green beans. Blend V4 c. bean liquid with 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup. Add % tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. onion juice and green beans. Heat and serve, garnished with paprika. Serves approximately 3 to 4. YES We're Open! When the Weather Is Cold Try A Hot Fudge SUNDAE "Hm-m-m Good Anytime" DAIRY QUEEN 1511 South Main Ottawa The Bowmans suggest that you take a dry cloth and rub the marks by sprinkling a dab of baking soda on the floor. Wax as usual. Tri-sodium phosphate will remove these marks on most floors. Mix it with some water and rub it just like you were going to wash your windows. Sometimes a child's ordinary school eraser does an excellent job! By using this method I feel you will not have to re-wax the spots. The eraser will leave a dull spot. However, all one has to do is take a soft cloth and buff the spot and it will shine again. Floor authorities (both asphalt tile and hardwood floor men) advise me that lighter fluid often works without marring the floor. (Read directions on can as it is flammable.) They claim (and I find that it is so) that lighter fluid evaporates so quickly it can hardly do any damage to the floor providing it is not poured on the floor. The best way to do this is to dab some fluid on an old wash rag and then rub the black marks with it. I am sure you will find they will be gone. Love, Heloise. Dear Heloise: When sewing any heavy material I rub the seams where I am going to sew (after cutting out the pattern) with a bar of hard soap, and I find that my machine needle will go through the goods very easily without breaking. I figure that the amount of soap which is caught in the fabric of the material allows for soft insertion of the needle, and I am sure that this is true. This is especially good when patching or sewing blue jeans and the types of material such as we use when we recover our lawn chairs, and so forth. You are right! I usually break an average of three sewing ma chine needles each lime I cover our lawn furniture. I used your soap method by taking that bit of soap left from our bathroom and rubbing it along the stitching area after cutting my pattern. The needles did go through easier. I did not have one needle break this time. My heart-felt thanks to you for this idea. Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: My son wonders if any of the adies are able to come up with anything which can help him. On the dashboard of the car the )lastic around the instruments is spotted. He has used — (she named six cleaners) and the spots seem to disappear when il s wet but when it is dry they arc jack again! Cora Spencc. Dear Cora: Let's do hope that someone has an answer, but until that time and in case there is no answer [I don't know of one!) your son could go to his dime or department store and buy some contact )aper and cover that dashboard! Many people do. Not only for the reason of covering up spots, scratches and old jaint but to remove the glare 'rom the dashboard. Love, Heloise.
