Hints From Heloise THE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, Feb. 18, 1963 Thick "Tablecloth Blots Spilled Milk By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: We have three very young children in our home who are learning to feed themselves. Cleaning up the spilt milk and food becomes a chore, especially after a busy day. But, I have found that it helps a lot if I put an old bath towel on their little tables at meal time! The children seem to love this special "tablecloth". . . and the toweling blots up the overflow before it reaches their laps, the floor, or my tired nervous system! Mother o/ Three One could use fingertip towels or old pieces of bath towels which you coult 1 cut up y o u r- self. This is a wonderful nerve saver.

The last time I waxed my furniture, I happened to pick up my husband's old sock from the rag bag. The idea hit upon me to put the sock on like a glove, and spray my polish on the furniture and polish with my sock-glove. t works! (Hold the toe in the >alm of your hand for extra hickness.) Another bit of luck proved terrific when I was sewing on shank juttons. The only needle I could [ind has some embroidery thread through it — full strand. It worked beautifully. A few stitches and it is strong er than ordinary thread. Embroi dery thread tends to pull the buttons tighter into the material than single or double strand regu lar thread usually does. These buttons have never come loose! Now I am just looking for acci dents! Irene Morris Dear Irene: Bless you! You're just the sweetest thing we know. That quotation should read, "Accidents and necessity are the mother of invention." I'm sure you have proved this yourself, at least to me you have, Heloise Dear Heloise: I have a steam iron which ha; stopped steaming. Have you any idea what may have caused it or what I should do? Frances Hintzo Dear Frances: There may be something dras tically wrong with your iron. No seeing it, how would I know? However, most people find tha the iron has been stopped up with sediment. The best answer we have found to date for this is: Empty the water from the steam iron. Fill it with approximately one-fourth cup of pure vinegar—white or yellow makes no difference — and let it steam 'our minutes. Turn the iron off and let it get completely cool. Most people like to let the iron sit about three hours. After that, rinse the iron out with plain water. Fill the iron back up with the Usual amount of water you ordinarily would use and let it come to a steaming point again. Be sure to run the iron over a piece of wet cloth before iron ing your niceties. This wil remove any sediment that has come loose and might be caugh in the steam holes on the bottom of your iron. Or you could use commercia steam iron cleaners. There are many brands. And always remember that there could be something wrong with your iron. In that case you would have to see a repair man in this business. Hope you're lucky!

The program, presented by Miss Catherine Campbell, was devoted to the national DAR Museum at Washington, D. C. Miss Campbell, a visitor at the Museum many times, described it as it was in the early days; a room approximately 35 by 40 feet in which . were displayed items of the Revolutionary period such as glass, silver and china, and a dress worn by Mrs. President Harrison. Mrs. Harrison was the first President General of the National DAR Society. When the present building of the DAR was constructed, the old museum was housed in the new building. The present museum, much enlarged, contains many priceless items, all predating 1830. The program included colored slides of some of the rare items now on display, including one of the three recognized life masks of George Washington, made at Mount Vernon by the famous French artist Houdon.

Also on display is furniture by Hepplewhite, Duncan Phyfe and Chippendale, as well as other items of pewter, silver, hand- blown glass and china of the Revolutionary period. Mrs. J. R. Henning gave the National Defense report, discussing the administration's decision to cut back the National Guard. The National Guard, or Militia, as it is called in the Constitution, is a vital part of what the army calls our "Initial Protective Force."

' Since the Reserve is wholly under Federal control, the Pentagon can reorganize this force on ts own authority. However, governors must approve any Guard changes within their Mates. This s one of the most significant provisions in our Constitution. Mrs. Harold Tetwiler read the president general's message for February, urging that special em jhasis be given all American tlistbry Month activities, striving to be alert to every opportunity to observe and appreciate our American ideals, principles and heritage during this period which is highlighted by the birth dates of two great Americans, Wash ington and Lincoln.
