Hints From Heloise Buy A Bedspread For Sofa Covering By HELOISE CRUSE Dear, dear Heloise: I have an extra large oversized sofa. It must be slipcover- ed immediately. I have looked all over town for material over 108 inches wide. Question! I do not want seams Now what am I to do? You have the brains and the answer, too, I hope! Desperate Don't despair. You have the same problem millions of oth- Helouw er w o m e n have. I do not know of a n y place that you c a n buy material 108 inches wide. But I think I have the solution for you. Why don't you look around, and watch the ads in the paper for some bedspreads on sale! Bedspreads are usually made out of heavier material. Some are even wider than the inches you are looking for, and have no seams. I also find that they are heavier than lots of slipcover materials. Heavier materials not only suffice for better wear but . . will keep the soil on the slipcover itself instead of going through to your beautiful upholstery. I find it most satisfactory. Some bedspreads are washable — be sure, if you intend to wash your slipcovers, that you check on this — and that it has a shrinkage guarantee. If it does not, I suggest that you wash the bedspread before making your slipcovers. I hope this helps you. You have come up with a question which I have often wondered about— why manufacturers of piece goods have not solved it before. I think you are great! Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: I had trouble with my own children and friends' children wanting to write on the walls of our play room. Miscellany Lois L. M. S. MPM Club members learned many facts they did not know about rugs and their history in a talk at the last meeting by Mrs. Alba Hewitt. She told that Oriental rugs were invented by shepherd tribes. Persia conquered Babylon in 538 BC and, even today, Persian rugs are known for their beauty and quality. Shepherds and their families sorted, cleaned and wove the yarns on looms which the women made. Materials were silk, cotton and some grades of hemp along with the wool. They kept their own patterns. Coloring was. an Oriental secret but it is known they used mostly vegetable dyes. Ryrolean purple was made of mollusks. Boiling was done in a copper kettle and as many as 20 or 30 jars of color were kept' at hand. Madder was for red and madder over indigo made brown. Some of the dye materials were gallnuts, vinegar, rind of the pomegranate, camphor wood, iron bilings, sour grape juice, beets, onion skins and ivy, vine and mulberry leaves, laurel, angelica, berries, artichokes, thistles, capers and myrtle. Weaving was an intricate business with many persons working on the same rug. We are indebted to Franklin County Farm Bureau Women for a fine collection of patriotic material. It contains a page giving etiquette for the American flag, the duties of a citizen. Creed of Americans, Hints and Privileges of a Citizen, The Freedom Pledge and a poem, " A Nation's Life," by Clarence E. Flynn of South Dakota Farm Bureau. Mrs. Ruby Yohe, 819 S. Locust, believes that two of her granddaughters have set some kind of record but they are too busy to tell about it so she mentioned it. The girls are the former Peggy and Maxine Yohe, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Yohe, who married brothers. Peggy became Mrs. Leo Criqui, now of 320 E. 2nd, and Maxine is now Mrs. Clyde Criqui. Two years ago the sisters each ;ave birth to a baby boy on the same day. This year each had a baby girl but not on the same day. Connie Colleen was born to Leo and Peggy Criqui, Jan. 12. It was a month later, Feb. 12 when Penny Anne was born to Clyde and Maxine Criqui. Tables set for 200 persons to honor Vera Goodman at a dinner Thursday evening in Elliott hall were inadequate, and severa more tables were provided to ac commodate the crowd. Miss Good man will leave soon to assume duties of a new position in Prai rie Village Baptist Church. Tables were decorated in a sweetheart Valentine theme. The program included skits by Jun ior High, Senior High and Ottawa University groups. Miss Goodman was presented a plaque and a gift of hi-fi set. SUMMER VOWS - Mr. and Mrs. J. Emory Gross, Bassett, Neb., announce the engagement of U*ir daughter, Kathryn Lyn, to David L. Fredeen. MB of Dr. and Mrs. Robert C. C. Fredeen, Shawnee Mis- lion. Miss Crow and her fiance are students at Ottawa University where she u majoring u elementary education and he is majoring in Sociology. A late summer wedding u plan- To remedy this my husband took the sides of large cardboard artons and tacked .them along ne wall and the problem was olved! When the cardboard was cov- ;red with scribbling we turned i over, and when that side was illed we got another piece of ardboard. Another trick might be to tack arge pieces of shelf paper or ild wallpaper to the walls with he cardboard underneath it in case the children get a hold of an ink pen. Gale )ear Heloise: Here is the best method I have bund to clean artificial flowers. Put ordinary table salt in a paper bag (about two tablespoons 'or two or three small sprays) and close the paper bag. Shake vigorously. The flowers will come out clean. For large sprays use a large bag and more salt. Mrs. Antonette Polise Dear Heloise: Instead of pressing garments, I brush them well and hang them n the bathroom while letting the tot water run in the shower. In other words, I steam them. I always let the garment hang in the room for a day before putting back in the closet. This eliminates pressing which is hard on clothes. Alma Martinez Dear Heloise: When making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I put the peanut butter on one slice of the bread and jelly on the other and then put them together. It's so much easier. I have a four-sided grater. I have found that I have less cheese or onion "scattered" if I lay the grater down, place aluminum foil inside the grater and fold it up on both sides. I then use a firm long stroke to grate the cheese or onion. Remove the foil and the food is all in one place! Take the foil tube and pour it into your bowl or pan.

Barbara says the Drop Doughnuts are so easy to make that anyone (even a child) can do it. Needless to say, her family is happy to take care of as many as she cares to make.

THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, February 16, 1MI 3 Ann Landers Tell Kids To Keep Hands To Selves Dear Ann Landers: Our daugh- ler is fourteen years old. She is dating a boy the same age. This kid is at our house almost svery evening. The thing I object to is this: These Lwo can't keep their hands off one another > They a r e ei- t h e r holding hands, or one is lying with h i s head in the oth- o n e's lap, or they are both lying on the sofa watching TV. All summer long Lhey ran around barefooted, and if they weren't holding hands they were holding feet. My wife seems to think it is perfectly all right. I think it is revolting. If they act like this at 14 what will they be doing three years from now? My daughter and my wife both read your column. Please give them an eyeful. Thank you. — OLD FASHIONED DAD Dear Dad: You bet it's revolting — and if I were you I'd revolt. Teenagers who don't have enough self-respect to keep their hands off each other should be told in blunt language — and it's the parents who should do the telling. It sounds as if these two kids have a one track mind — and the traffic is pretty heavy. Dear Ann Landers: You have mentioned in your column that parents should not allow their children to touch things when they visit in the homes of other people. Now I wish you'd print something about young children who feed pets when no one is looking. My cousin and his wife called on us yesterday. They brought their two youngsters along. The six-year old gave the cat several caramels and the poor thing got her teeth stuck together and it was terrible. The other youngster gave our puppy some potato- salad and dill pickle. She got so sick we had to call the vet in the middle of the night. Our canary died several months ago and now I recall that it was just about the time these people last visited us. Please tell folks to teach their children not to feed pets when they are guests. Thank you. BIG VET BILLS Dear Big Bills: I'm also tell- ing parents who take their children visiting to keep an eye on them. Youngsters should not bt free to wander around in other people's homes and get info mil- chief. Dear Ann Landers: We are up to our necks in debts. My husband likes to gamble and he lief to me constantly. He swears he has paid certain bills. Later I get letters from the sotres and telephone calls from the credit managers. Finally the collecton show up in person. I learned recently that he borrowed $300 from some close friends. These people are kindhearted and have no extra money. The man was laid off last week and now I just can't face them. I want to take a part-time job and pay these friends back. My husband says no, that he'll pay them as soon as he can. In the meantime, I can't sleep at night worrying about our debts and the family's reputation. I need some advice. Can you help?-MONEY WORRffiS Dear Worries: By all means go to work and start paying back the money. You'll feel better, and it will be a demonstration of good faith. Your husband sounds like a compulsive gambler who needs help. Gambler's Anonymous may be the answer. Write for information to the national headquarters of Gambler's Anonymous, P. 0. Box 17173, Los Angeles 17, California. And good luck. To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him. send for Ann Landers' booklet. "Necking and Petting — And How Far To Go," 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.
