Hints From Heloise Ammonia Shines Aluminum Pans March Vows Mrs. Dora Glenn, 309 E. 2nd, announces the engagement of her daughter, Delia Jo, to Irwin L. Brocklesby, son of Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Brocklesby, Garnett. The wedding will take place in March. PRINTED PATTERN Helois* By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Does anyone know how to remove the brown from the outside of hammered aluminum pans? R.R. Dear R. R.: Bless you for asking. So many people have written in with the same problem. Except for plain old ordinary elbow grease, bro- k e n fingernails, and a soap- filled scouring pad. . . the only answer I have was suggested by a woman who wrote to say she used ammonia on her hammered aluminum. She said to take an old wash rag or an old piece of terry cloth bath towel and lay it on the bottom of the hammered aluminum pan or pot. Then pour straight ammonia onto the cloth itself, immediately placing everything in a plastic bag. The plastic bag keeps the fumes of the ammonia from completely gassing you! Also, from the research I have done, I feel that it is the fumes of the ammonia which do the dirty work for you rather than the liquid doing it This idea seems so far fetchec that I completely doubted it, bul ... I tried it. It worked! I found a friend who had hammered aluminum Dutch oven and a skillet that were 30 years old and had never been cleaned This is what I practiced on. I turned the skillet upsid down, placed an old piece of ter ry cloth bath towel over the ski let, and poured about half a cu of ammonia on it, immediate! placed it in the plastic bag and tied the loose ends with a rubbe band. I let this sit overnight. The next morning I took a soap filled pad and scrubbed the bo torn of this 30-year-old skillet, couldn't believe it. . . the layers nd layers of carbon immedia- ely started coming off! The skil- et was shining within five min- tes! She was as shocked as I- If your pot has years of accumulated carbon don't think you an do this in one operation. Be- ause, remember ... if it took •ears to get all those layers of carbon on, you're not about to ;et it off in five minutes. It may take two operations, even if I lid manage to do mine in one operation. Now ladies, I want to let you know that the directions on the ammonia bottle say, "Do not use ammonia on aluminum. It pits." lowever, when a pan is 30 years old. . . who cares as long as it gets clean? (It's already got so many pits and scratches on it!) My friend was delighted with ler skillet and her pot. She saw no pits and neither did I, even when we put it under our small dimestore magnifying glass. And ust like she said, "Who cares as ong as it looks clean!" You gals might try this, especially if your pan is old and has ayers and layers of carbon on it. It worked perfectly for us. Heloise Dear Heloise: One of your readers mentioned applying nail polish to unfinished eyelets on dress belts. I purchased a package of assorted colored metal eyelets at my dime store. Now, whenever I get a belt that is not finished, I just pop a metal eyelet into the unfinished hole and presto, my belt is like it should have been in the first place! Marcella Thomas Dear Heloise: Have you ever wanted to bring flowers home for your table but they shed so badly that they make a mess? No more, just spray them with hair spray! I find most flowers last longer, look pretty and no mess. Ruth Better test your special brand of hair spray on one flower first. Mine worked fine but some do contain different chemicals. Heloise Group Plans Tea For May Wesleyan Service Guild of Trinity Methodist Church made plans last evening for a Mothers' tea in May, and plans to attend the district spring meeting in Lawrence, March 10.

At Ransom Memorial Hospital: The son born Feb. 11 to Mr. and Mrs. Norman Clifford Moore, 719 Cypress, has been named Darrel Wayne. He weighed 7 lb., 2 oz. The son born Dear Ann Landers: Recently we lost our little girl. We have two married daughters and a teenage son. This wee one was like a gift from heaven because she came so late in our lives. I'm trying desperately to get over my heartbreak but our friends are making life unbearable. Within a week s «, of the funeral they c a m e in packs to ask if I had any clothing or toys "left over" for their nieces, n e p hews and grandchildren. Ofcourse I didn't - we sent everything to the Children's Home immediately. Yesterday a friend brought over her grandchild who is the same age as the little girl we lost. The woman said, "I thought Vicki could be a substitute for your own little girl today." What in heaven's name is the matter with people that they have such poor judgment? Please tell me what to do. HEAVY HEARTED Dear Heavy Hearted: Where did you find these brainless dolts? I would not call them friends. For the sake of your own mental health I hope you will soon build up the courage to tell them how you feel. Dear Ann Landers: So — "Understanding Mother" thinks it is just fine for a 14-year-old boy to be playing kissing games, does she? She also seems to think kids who don't go along with the gang might develop an inferiority complex. Well, my sister had crazy ideas like that, too, and her son developed a pregnant girl friend and a messed-up life. After a while, kissing no longer satisfies the natural drives and then the little darlings are compelled to think of something more exciting. How much a part of the gang do you think Junior will be when he has to quit high school to support a wife and child? And what kind of a complex will he have when he finds he has a man's job to do before he fully tastes the joys of boyhood? Parents who think 14-year-old kissing is just innocent fun are crazy. Three cheers, two beers and a pretzel to you, Ann, for telling her so.-UNA VOCE ANO ANIMO THE OTTAWA HERALD 7 Tuesday, February 19, 1961 ' remind people that they owe money? I hate to do it, but sometimes I think it's the only way I'll ever get my dough back.—RED INK Dear Red: Some kids do forget, so a reminder is in order. But if they don't come through after one nudge, make a mental note that Soandso is a dead-beat and never loan him money again. It's amazing that some boobs will sell their most valuable possession — a good reputation— for less than a dollar.

Attention Newlyweds 3 Rooms Fashion Furniture Living Room, Bedroom, Kitchen only $ 389 No D«£!T *5.00 Weekly kids borrowing lunch money and forgetting to pay it back. This month I am short $3. The word must have gotten around that I am a soft touch because all the kids seem to come to me when they need money. I'm not a fat cat, I don't drive a car, and my dad is no banker. I don't know why they think I'm loaded. The same kids who owe me money buy candy bars and malted milks after school. They also seem to have money to buy gas for their cars. This makes me sore.
