Just to prove the point three Brownies from Troop No. 305, Eugene Field School, made a dessert called Minted Brownie Pie.

Hints From Heloise Make Exquisite Ice Mold In Gake Pan By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Have you ever made an ice mold as a cold harbor for foods that have to remain on the table for a while? Fill a large ring mold or an angel food pan with a border of •mail multi-colored flowers and green leaves from bushes. Fill with water to the top of the pan and freeze several days before using. Unmold ice on a large pizza pan, covered large glass plate or silver tray. Around the edge of t h e plate, place a border of small Helots* green leaves. Place tiny gherkins, radish roses, stuffed olives and cherry tomatoes. Fill the center of the mold with prepared sea food. It has a very colorful effect. One can vary the mold by filling the center with balls of watermelon, honeydew, cantalope, and other diced fruits, using colored tooth picks as pickups. The mold can be refrozen and wed another time or two. Betty Jolkousky Dear Friends: I just took my angel food pan and tried this by using tiny ivy leaves and red cherries. I added auc or so drops of green cake coloring to the water before I poured it in. Exquisite! I only filled the pans half-way up with water as I did not want my molds too deep. After removing it from the freezer, I let it sit on the drain- board a while until I could spin it around with my fingers. Then I turned this over on a bed of green lettuce leaves. I cut all of my tomato wedges, pickles, sliced canned pineapple, cherries, and shrimp pieces on the lettuce around the outside of the mold. I lined the inside of the center ring (that's the hole in the middle, gals) with foil. Into this little foil cup I put my shrimp sauce! This must be lined to keep the sauce from becoming watery. It was a knock-out at my party. Try it. You don't have to buy it. Just make it! Heloise Dear Heloise: No one, not even marble companies in my town, can tell me how to remove spots from my marble coffee tables and keep them off! Has anyone got a good answer? Letters are welcome on this subject. Get out that pencil and write us your solution. Now write today, gals, and while you are giving us the answer to this, tell us your problem so we can help you. Heloise Dear Heloise: This is for office girls: when you have a number of carbon copies to make, line all of your papers and carbons evenly, slip all of the copies and the carbon between the flaps of the envelope and the envelope proper. Insert the envelope into the typewriter far enough, and then remove the envelope. Then roll the paper back into place and start to work and all your papers will remain exactly even. If these papers have to be signed, with the carbons, place the envelope flap on top of the pages again after they are all lined up evenly and the signature will be in line. Have your envelope typed and it will be right with your papers and all ready to be mailed. A Reader I think you are the greatest! Why hasn't someone else ever thought of this? Heloise Dear Heloise: We recently bought an automobile that had a light colored dashboard. When I drove to work against the sun, the dashboard would glare. . . making it difficult to see well. My little wife covered our dashboard with dark adhesive paper and eliminated all my troubles! Now wasn't that tricky? (No more glare.) Mr. Thompson Sure was! This idea will probably save lots of auto accidents and lives too. Heloise Shoes Restored Rather than buying new shoes for your youngsters, save dollars by letting us repair the old ones! CITY SHOE SHOP 122 S. Main Ann Landers Plan Your Trip To Suit Husband Ana Dear Ann Landers: Nine years ago I started to save for a trip to Europe. My husband and I are accustomed to frugal living and could easily tour Europe for three months on the $2,000 I will have by July. I've studied bricks on tfiig- land, France, Italy and Switzerland. I've attended travel movies and lectures. I've clip- p e d articles from the travel sections of our newspaper. I've even learned French. The trouble is my husband. He has never shown any enthusiasm for travel. I always thought it was laziness, but now I realize he doens't want to spend the money. He has suggested we buy a new car instead — or help our son buy a home (we bought our own home) — or just put it away for our old age. I get sick when I think of the years I've dreamed of this trip. It would be our first vacation in 28 years. He says if I insist, he'll go, but maybe his attitude would spoil my good time. I'd hate to go alone. Please help me. -ELEANOR H. Dear Eleanor: Insist that your husband go. Plan the vacation activities with his interests in mind as well as your own. You know his tastes better than anyone alive. If he doesn't appreciate art, don't haul him out of bed at dawn to walk his legs off in galleries. Use your noodle and see to it that he has a fine time. Then you can start saving for a trip to the Orient. Dear Ann Landers: I was surprised that you agreed with "In The Middle." He was crying his eyes out because he was the middle kid in the family and had problems from all sides. Well, I'm the oldest in a family of seven and I would gladly change places with somebody in the middle. All my life I've had to set an example for everybody. I've always had to go to bed early because my younger broth- Miscellany s. J L. M. S. Some of the facts we've been reading from National Food Conference, Chicago, should be of interest to young people considering a choice of careers. The food industry, working through the National Food Conference, has been giving straight facts on food careers and good nutrition to teen age leaders at the National Youthpower Congress. Point A (at the 1962 Congress): There are unlimited carrer opportunities in the food industry. These start at the source of virtually a 1 1 foods, the farm, and run through the manufacturing level to distributing and retailing. As Dr. Earl Butz, dean of agriculture, Purdue University stresses: "Never was the need so great as now for training in the basic sciences underlying the food industry and the business phases of production and marketing." Point B; Teens often adopt erratic eating habits that can undermine health if not corrected. A Youthpower survey of over 36,000 teens in Missouri disclosed that only 5.5 per cent of the young people questioned had their daily recommended servings from the four food groups and only 15.8 per cent indicated they had an adequate breakfast. President of the National Food Conference, Charles B. Shuman, made this same point when he stated: "Doctors say that 35-45 per cent of the population is affected by improper nutrition. Valentine's Day has come and gone; likewise Washington's birthday, and we didn't get any of those special recipes tried which come to our desk. Perhaps we can do better about Easter. How many of you have special Easter recipes? Won't you please call in about them? We would like to clear out the bulging picture file. Will all those who have brought in pictures for use on the women's page pick them up if you still want them? A quote from The Times, Thief River Falls, Minn.: Today's Brownie is tomorrow's cookie, and today's Cub is tomorrow's wolf. Senior Club Has Meeting Twenty-five persons attended the meeting of Senior Club in Youth Center yesterday with Mrs. Myrtle Graham presiding. There were group singing and a prayer by Mrs. Graham.

KANSAS-He 3-1111 One of tke MiJwe»t'« Finest School, of Cosmetology ***GT*&?^<4r*6r*&*0*0**^ ers accused my parents of favoritism if I got special privileges. As the oldest, I had to let the younger ones have their way be cause "they didn't know any better." If the younger ones got into trouble when my folks were away I caught the blame because I should have "watched them." I wish I could go join that family where the oldest kid gets the privileges. In this family I get only the grief. — ALSO COMPLAINING Dear Complaining: We've heard from the oldest, the one in the middle, and now look at what the youngest has to say: Dear Ann Landers: The letter from the creep who complained because he was the middle one in the family made me laugh. There is no tougher spot than being the youngest. I know because that's where I am. I have three older brothers and an older sister. I can't remember ever getting anything to wear that was bought brand new, just for me. My mother always says, "This is too good to throw away. Al can wear it." Even the patches have patches. It isn't only clothes — it's school supplies, books, toy. Just name it and I've inherited it. The youngest is the messenger boy and errand-runner. "Go get this. . . get that. Bring my grey sweater. My purse is upstairs. My skates are in the basement. Go to the store. Walk the dogs." The last in line gets the dirty work, the hand-me-downs, and the neck of the chicken. It's no fun being the baby in the family. It's all work.— END OF THE LINE Dear Line: Again my readers have proven that it's not viewpoint but point of view that makes life interesting. Thanks for your letter. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you write for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed,' stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you wilh your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

Orange cotton knit blouse and pants won't sag or shrink. Undershirt Fabric DAY SHIFT. . . Waist's away on this cotton knit by James Kenrob. Not For Men Only By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Men's underwear have never been a fashion inspiration to the ladies. Neither have babies' rompers. The garments per se are still not, but the fabrics from which some of these are made will be cropping up everywhere in the summer wardrobes of women who are smart, chic and lazy. The material is composed of a durene fiber, a two-ply double knit cotton which is lustrous and slinky without being saggy. For years men's T-type undershirts of such material have been stuffed into duffle bags or tossed into laundry tubs without being the worse for the wear. And mothers, lacking time to pamper infant's play clothes, have been equally careless without ill effects. Why not, decided designer James Kenrob share the blessed easy care with womankind? He, as well as other sportswear designers, utilized the yarn for Chanel type suits and dresses, or classic sweater and skirt combinations. Every now and then Kenrob let the knitting machines run away with the sweaters until they grew to the hemlines into waistless shifts. Sports clothes — shorts for the beach and long pants for everywhere — were also shaped out of the same type of material. Because the yarn gives with body movement, knits are a natural for sportswear. In fact, this give or take quality which FLA Club Is Entertained For roll call at the Thursday meeting of FIA Club, members told of famous gardens they had visited. Mrs. lone Dragoo was hostess. For entertainment there was a game patterned after the TV show, Match Game, in which prizes were given. Mrs. Gillette received the door prize. Members signed a card to send to Mrs. Morris Ferguson who is ill. Refreshments carried out a Washington's birthday theme. makes knit dresses and sweater costumes so comfortable and perfectly fitted is what brought about knit popularity within the past decade. From an upkeep and climatic point of view, cotton knits would seem to be more practical than anything. Yet, until very recently certain kinds of these have been as tricky to wash as cotton candy. A size 15 one fine laundry day could easily be • size 3 the next. The not new but newly stylish type of fiber doesn't work itself into that kind of deception at all. Material made of it remembers its size and stays that way. Like all its fiber knit cousins, these cotton knit garments of du- rene unselfishly relinquishes previous closet space, remaining as happy and wrinkleproof in a drawer, or a suitcase as on hangers. Auxiliary Gives Coffee Fifty women attended the Ran* som Memorial Hospital Auxiliary coffee yesterday in Elliott hall, First Baptist Church. Posters were on display to indicate areas of service open to active members of the auxiliary. The committee was Mrs. Robert A. Anderson and Mrs. Homer Henning. Officers and members assisted in explaining work of the auxiliary and with the serving. Mrs. Robert Grabham, president, reports that the auxiliary now has 22 active and 57 associate members. Volunteers are invited. Sesame Seeds Toasting sesame seeds before sprinkling them on yeast-bread dough gives good flavor. The seeds may be toasted in a skillet over low heat for a few minutes if they are stirred during this process.
