MRS. ALVIN NELSEN Couple Married Nebraska Church Married in the Baptist Congregational Church, York, Neb., Jan. 27, at 2 p.m. were Carma Ostrom, who completed her senior work at Ottawa University in January, and Alvin Nelsen, son of Mrs. Alice Nelsen. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Al Ostrom. Both families live in York. Rev. Eugene Loftis performed the double ring ceremony. Altar decorations were white snapdragons, white mums in gold vases and white pompoms, with seven-branch candelabra. On a long worship table were candles centered with a fross. Mrs. Leroy Nelson of Stromburg, organist, played traditional nuptial selections and Lee Nelson, Lincoln, Neb., sang "Because," "The Lord's Prayer," and "Bless This House." The bride's gown was of white organza over taffeta. Alencon lace edged the low rounded neckline and the elbow length sleeves of the fitted bodice. Below the waist the Alencon lace was hand run into the silk organza the entire length of the skirt. Holding her circular tulle veil were three white organza roses enhanced with tiny seed pearls to simulate dewdrops. Veil and headpiece were designed and made by Mrs. Glenn Fitch. The bride carried a white or•hid on a white Bible and wore a cameo necklace and matching earrings. The matron of honor was Mrs. John Ostrom, Plattsmouth, Neb., sister-in-law of the bride. Mrs. Larry Kupke was bridesmaid. Their green peau de soie dresses were made with rounded necklines and gored skirts having tiny pleats with sash and bow at the waist. They wore green circle headpieces with short matching veils and carried bouquets of small white mums with yellow centers. Ken Otteman, brother-in-law of the groom, acted as best man. Rod Ostrom, the bride's brother, was groomsman and Gordon Birch was usher. Flower girls were Peggy Ostrom and Chris Cram, and can- dlelighters were Kathy Ostrom and Shawn Cram, nieces of the couple. The groom's nephews, Allen and David Otteman, were ring bearers. A reception was held after the ceremony. Among those assisting were Ottawa University students, Bonnie Gochanhoun, who served; and Sue Smith and Connie Lee, who assisted with the gifts. After a wedding trip to Omaha, the couple went to a home they furnished at 519 J. St., Aurora, Neb. For traveling the bride wore a black nylon jersey two-piece suit with white felt hat, white gloves and black shoes and purse. The bride was affiliated with Pi Theta Chi social club at OU. She is teaching second grade in Aurora. The groom graduated from Fremont High School and attended York College. He sells insurance. Serve Ahead If you're serving soup at dinner, it's wise to fill the soup plates and have them on the table just before the family sits down. A tray of crackers, melba toast or cheese straws — if these are to accompany the soup- should also be on the table ready for passing. Smooth table service, with as little jumping • up as possible, helps to make a meal enjoyable.

I would like to tell all mothers that our first two babies were a set of twins, so Heloiw now I have five babies in diapers! With five babies in diapers at once, I think I have found the solution to the soiled diapers which usually stack up when only one child is around. Naturally, I have many loads of laundry to do each day I found that my washing machine itself is by far the best place to keep soak, arid get the soiled diapers pail out of the bedroom or nursery. When I get through with my last load of laundry each day. . . I fill the washing machine with cool water and add a bit of a pine-type deodorant of some sort. As each diaper is removed from baby, I rinse it and run to the washing machine and throw it into this solution. Each morning all I do is set my machine to spin dry and then start it to washing. When soaking diapers read the directions on the bottle of any type deodorant you use. This saves me lifting a heavy diaper pail, odors in the house, and last but not least, my energy which is needed most with five babies in the house. Loving mother I send five kisses "XXXXX"! And a big squeeze for you. Heloise Dear Heloise: Here's a use for leftover mashed potatoes: Boil only enough new potatoes so that the fresh ones and the leftover ones will be enough for your meal. When the potatoes that you are boiling are done, but not soft, and the water has almost boiled away, add the leftover potatoes to the boiling ones. . . just long enough to heat through! Drain and mash as usual. I always leave a small amount of water on my potatoes, rather than milk, and add butter. You would never guess there were any leftovers being served!

Ida Gudiswitz Dear Heloise: We remove tar which has been tracked onto our hardwood floors, by rubbing the tar gently with dried baking soda and sweeping up the mixture when finished. K. Street Dear Heloise: My mother occasionally runs out of bread crumbs. Here's what she did the last time this happened: She had a bag of prepared stuffing — the kind which is already mixed and seasoned — and she put this in her blender until it was finely ground up and used this for bread crumbs. The chops tasted so good when breaded with this mixture that now we alwyas have pork chops, veal chops, and so forth breaded with finely ground herb stuffing. Audrey Mallinak Now, isn't this just the greatest? If one would like this mixture to bread her chops in — she could save her stale bread and throw in a little sage or poultry seasoning! And while we're on this subject, if you ever need stale bread and do not have any, it is best cooked by laying it on the racks in your oven without foil. When the oven is turned on, the bread dries out thoroughly from both sides and makes it ever so crisp.
