Pomonan High In Homemaker Test By NARY HUDELSON Pomona correspondent Frances Sherman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Sherman, RED 1, Ottawa, is Homemaker of Tomorrow for Pomona High School for having achieved the highest score in a knowledge and attitude test given senior girls Dec. 4 in the 1963 Betty Crocker Search for the American Homemaker of Tomorrow. Her examination will be entered in competition with all the other school winners in the State contest. Mrs. Lowell Gish, home economics teacher, presented her the heart - shaped Homemaker of Tomorrow pin in assembly Friday, Jan. 18. Frances originally lived in the Centropolis area and attended Appanoose High School. She continued her schooling there even after moving to Ottawa. Since the consolidation she has been enrolled at Pomona. Betty Crocker has sponsored this search for the past nine years. In that time, nearly three million girls have enrolled. It is designed to enhance the dignity and prestige of the American home, stimulate interest in the art of homemaking, and help emphasize the outstanding contributions to the home being made by high school teachers throughout the United States. The State Homemaker of Tomorrow is awarded a $1,500 scholarship by General Mills. She and her school advisor will join FRANCES SHERMAN other state winners in an expense- paid tour of New York City, Washington, D. C., and Colonial Williamsburg, Va., next spring. During the tour, the 1963 All- American Homemaker will be named. She will be chosen on the basis of her examination plus personal observation and interviews during the tour. This winner will have her scholarship raised to $5,000. She will be symbolic of those qualities which make the American home the basic strength of our country and the source of its greatness. Pomona seniors who participated were Sharon Robbins, Elaine Swallow, Yvonnes Hess, Susan j Crawford, Mabel Mason, Mary i Scott and Stephanie Stephenson. .They joined 410,000 senior girls in 12,900 high schools in every state and the District of Columbia in taking the test. Hints From Heloise Patch Shoes With Buttons By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: For the girls and boys who have worn out tennis shoes I have found an attractive way to patch them. Where the holes are ... try sewing on a button or embroidering a button hole with a colored thread. Then apply the button! Also, it has :become a fad in my town to sew patches of different shapes out of h e a vy Material to cover the holes. It looks real neat. Jeannet Hevens My daughter Helois* just tried it. She sewed big fancy buttons on each toe. Darling idea. Heloise Dear Heloise: I wonder if the ladies have ever tried my scheme for removing fat from gravy, broth, stew etc. in a hurry. I drop some ice cubes (not the tray itself but just the cubes) into the hot broth and in a matter of minutes the ice cubes are coated with hard waxy fat. You can then scoop the ice cubes and all of the fat off the top of the broth and have clear broth in a matter of minutes. Mildred Kuhn Dear Heloise: Why can't I hear the alarm clock go off in the mornings? For years my husband has griped at me about this until I finally had to go to an ear doctor and he said nothing was wrong with my hearing. Now my husband told me to write you. Help me please. Matilda Dear Matilda: Because you are like me! We don't wanna hear it! Who wants to get up and do housework? If your husband were going to take you on a trip to Bermuda and a second honeymoon. . . bet you would wake up 30 minutes before an alarm went off! Heloise Dear Heloise: Here is the way we remove creases —.left by a hem which has been pressed in for a long time. Use a sponge and wet thoroughly a piece of heavy, clean, brown wrapping paper. Use it for a pressing cloth under a very hot iron. This seems to make more steam than a steam iron produces. Take care not to let the brown piper become dry lest the fabric be scorched or made shiny. While the fabric is still full of live steam, "pull" it until the needle holes vanish or until the crease leaves. Of course, it is understood that the hem has been ripped out and the fabric is smoothed out before this intense steaming and pressing begins. Grace Greer Dear Heloise: For those who like a tangy taste on their lettuce salad: try using the juice of kosher dill pickles! Sure makes a difference. Bachelor Dear Heloise: For "sticky keys" in door locks, I use graphite which can be purchased at any store.
