^^ -ST.iW Vassar Couple Wed 71 Years MR. AND MRS. A. H. WIGGER Hints From Heloise Lots Of Walking In Keeping House By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Would you please tell my husband how many miles a year I walk just by keeping my home? He swears I don't get enough exercise! Drew Tired Dear Drew: I do not have any official information on this subject. However, I did find one reference which said that a typical homemaker walks 3,186 miles a year inside of her home alone. It's my guess that you aren't typical either! I'll bet we both walk more than that. No wonder we're tired at night! Heloise Dear Heloise: I have a new refrigerator but the ice cubes stick. When I use the release on the tray to get the ice cubes out, they stick to the tray and the release bar. I live in a new neighborhood. All of us are having the same trouble. Can you tell us the cause? Neighborhood Dear Appointee: As I am not there to test your specific refrigerators I cannot tell you exactly what is causing the ice trays to stick. However, I can make a d a r n good guess! Some of your appointee Helois* people use your ice trays and fill them with hot water and place them in your freezer chest to defrost them more quickly. Do not do this. As far as I know, most refrigerator companies "coat" these trays. When you put boiling hot water in them it melts and removes this coating. Nothing should be placed in these trays except cool water. Also, they should never be put in dishwashers with extremely hot water or soaps. For those of you who have no dishwasher, don't put them in hot soapy suds. This removes the coating and causes sticking. . The only answer I have found to remedy this is: Use some sort of spray coating (such as is used for spraying fry pans and casserole dishes to prevent sticking.) Dry the tray thoroughly and then coat it with one of these sprays. I am well aware that these sprays are not sold for this purpose, nor do their directions mention using them for this, but outside of cooking oil — which leaves a greasy coating in your iced drink, or buying new trays, that's the best answer I have found. Heloise Dear Heloise: After many frustrating days of re-drying small articles caught in the middle of a bed sheet or towel in my dryer. . . I discovered that if I shook out all of the lumps and twists in the clothing as I put it in the dryer, and (now, this is the trick) placed the smaller articles in the bottom of the dryer and placed the larger articles on top, my problem was solved. But I must be careful to shake out the sheets, folding them crosswise and gather them loosely at the fold and lay them on top of one of the articles. E. Fukii Dear Heloise: Instead of using a rubber sheet between the sheet and the mat- Party Punch Gal. Jug — 65c We Deliver SELECT DAIRY CH 2-1607 PUBLIC SALE The following items of the WILLIAM F.

Chandler, Adm. tress on a child's bed, I find that a flannel backed tablecloth is much better. Put the tablecloth on with the flannel side up. I put this on top of the sheet and if the child wets the bed, it can be washed in the washer along with the rest of the laundry. I know because I have done it for one of our grandchildren, and now keep one on hand for her when she stays overnight with us. The flannel backed tablecloth could be put between the sheet and the mattress if one so desired. Mrs. Mara Dear Heloise: A good way to clean a meat tenderizer is to let it soak in water and then use the tines of a fork to release any meat which might be left in the grooves of the tenderizer. Mrs. Charles F. Mara February Vows Read Sandra Joy Stone, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Stone, 1124 S. Locust, and Joseph H. Miles Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Miles, Sr., Springerville Ariz., were married Feb. 6. They plan a wedding trip to Arizona. Celebrating their 71st weduing anniversary yesterday with a fam- ly dinner at their home were Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Wigger, Vassar. The couple moved to their present home in 1925 after living on a farm near Michigan Valley T or 12 years. Mr. Wigger, 97, and his wife will be 94 on March I, do their own work with a lit- Je help. Of the seven children born to [he coule, five are living. They are Henry Wigger, Mrs. Anna Stahr, Herman Wigger, Mrs. Ella Bauck, in or near Vassar; and Albert, Topeka. All were present For the dinner yesterday except Mrs. Stahr who sustained a leg fracture Christmas eve. She lives only a block away. The couple lias seven grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Both Mr. and Mrs. Wigger came from Germany, Mr. Wigger with his family at age 14, to settle in Ohio. Mrs. Wigger came at 17 to Lenexa where she worked for a family to pay her passage to this country. Mrs. Wigger recalls that she worked for $3 per week. The couple met on her first day with the Lenexa family as Mr. Wigger had come to work on an adjoining farm. Both worked for three years before they were married. Out of the savings of his wages of $200 a year plus board and keep, the couple bought furnishings and equipment to set up housekeeping and start farming. They were married at the Lackmann home where she worked. The Wiggers recall that they planned to keep the marriage quiet but the news leaked out when they went to church in a spring wagon. On their return to the farm they were given a surprise reception. Mrs. Wigger says she made her own wedding dress, of peacock blue silk with brown highlights like taffeta. In fact it was not until her 60th wedding anniversary that Mrs. Wigger ever had a "store bought" dress. The couple lived at Lenexa until after all their children were born. Mrs. Wigger recalls that when she was very young, in the old country, a fortune teller told her that she would come to America and would meet her future husband on the first day in her new home. She still thinks it may be more than coincidence that her "fortune" happened just that way. When the couple moved to Vassar in 1925, Mr. Wigger did most of the work on their home himself. They needed the big, four- bedroom house then as their family was at home. They still like their home although it is bigger than they need. Looking back, Mr. Wigger says, "We did not have a flow ery path of ease and idleness. We have had trouble, disappoint ments, sorrow, sickness anc death in the family. We are thankful for our good health. Got has been good to us."

CWF Groups Combined Meeting The four groups of the CWF had a combined meeting Wednesday night in the Christian Church Annex. Reports from each group were given. The service committee reported that 31 pounds of merchandise, consisting of cut-out garments, pieces of material, thread and trimmings, have been sent to the Ralph Tillerys at their mission station at Monieca, Republic of Congo. This will be sufficient to cloth 100 children. Plans were made for the housing and meals for the State CWF board which will meet in Ottawa Feb. 19, 20 and 21.
