Hints Prom Heloise Either Side Of Foil s "•'.':•• ; '. Can Be Turned Out By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: In a recent column a woman asked what side of aluminum foil is the right side! Or ... which side should be placed on the outside and which next to the food. This question puzzles people. Actually, it does not matter which side of the aluminum foil is placed outside since both the bright and dull sides of aluminum foil are almost equally reflective. However, aluminum foil is a very good conductor of heat when in contact with food, and it conducts heat into the food when used to wrap potatoes, chicken, turkey, and many other foods during roasting and baking. Helois* In addition aluminum foil holds in natural moisture, juices and flavor, making foods more succulent and delicious. Eleanor Lynch Director of Home Economics Dear Heloise: In answer to the ladies who want to know about luncheon beef and bologna. . , I have the solution to their problem: My husband likes boiled ham for his lunch. . . so I buy picnic ham, which is often on sale, in the markets. '. '•'. ' I always look for a good lean one. I press on the butt end of the ham with my thumb; and if it feels solid it is lean but if it is soft and mushy then I know it has quite a bit of fat. I always buy the leanest ham I can find. , I cook this (after removing the rind) by wrapping it well in foil and putting it in a big pot of water and boiling it about two Lois L. M. S.

As the wife of a politician Mrs. Harder attends functions for legislative wives and accompanies her husband to social and political events which crowd their calendar when the legislature is in session. The Harder family includes Anne, 4, and 10-month-old James David. Mrs. Harder graduated from Baker University and later got her master's degree from Boston University while her husband worked toward his doctorate. Mrs. Rose Campbell, who has been hopping about on the west coast this winter says they have had nice weather and she is glad she went. On March 1 she went to the Lawrence Welk show of which she says, "It had the most beautiful lighting we ever saw." Her party had dinner reservations and sat at a table near the stage. Backs of old envelopes are a convenient source of material when nothing else seems available in the motley collection of one's purse. The only thing is, they are most easily discarded when a clearing-out comes and one is no better off than before taking notes. OES Honors Two Officers Quenemo Chapter No. 63, Order of Eastern Star, honored the secretary, Miss Florence Windett, and the treasurer, Mrs. John Rogers, at a recent meeting. Mrs. Elaine Smith worthy matron, presided during the meeting and during the ceremony of, "We Wish You Well," honoring the secretary and treasurer. They were greeted with a poem and given a corsage made by the worthy matron, presented by Norma Montoya, associate matron. Thelma Nelson sang, "Tie a Little String Around Your Finger," and the officers placed individual shamrocks of sincere sentiment into each of the wishing wells, given to the secretary and treasurer. A gift from the worthy matron and patron was presented by Margaret Brann. Refreshments were served by Norma Montoya and Barbara Driver. The table was decorated by Barbara Driver using the theme of St. Patrick and colors of green and white. The worthy matron conducted a game in which Barbara Driver won the prize. The past matrons and past patrons will be honored at the next meeting March 18, in a ceremony, "Yours are the Hands." Visitors are welcome.

A basket dinner was served at noon to 11 members and their husbands, six children and one guest, Mr. date Atchison. Plans were made for a party for members and families March 16. Cards were sent to sick mem- ben. tours or so depending upon the size of the ham. ,..';• When finished, I remove it from the kettle and place it on a plate to cool. Then I can slice it as thin or as thick as I like. This luncheon meat will last quite awhile in the refrigerator. After I slice what I want for that day, I wrap the rest of the nam in a plastic wrap and it stays fresh and moist as the day it was cooked. Dear Heloise: When I make a one-dish dinner and need to' make it ahead of time, the .pilot, light on my stove keeps it nice and warm for me when I place a piece of foil over the top of the casserole. Mrs. J. H. Beckham Dear Helcise: It's time to clean my dish cupboards again but I am not dreading it as much as I use to. Last fall I put the dishes I seldom use in plastic bags and closed the tops of the bags. I put these in the back of my cupboard shelf; I will not have to wash all of them now. Isn't that wonderful? It not only puts your plastic bags to good use but keeps them out of baby's reach. Mary Grindad Dear Mary: Jolly ho! Your idea is wonderful and ... so are you! Heloise Dear Heloise: Instead of putting water into that last bit of ketchup in the bottle which makes it thin and runny. . . simply put the cap on the Dottle and pop it upside down overnight! When you want to use the ketchup, better have something handy to catch it in because il will all slide out easily leaving the bottle as clean as a whistle, This also goes for hand lotions. You will be astonished at how much lotion you will get by proping an "empty" bottle upside down for a while. J.

"The ones I chose are just ones I use a lot and that my family likes." However, friends of Mrs. Olmsted say the following recipes are "different" as well as delicious. Ricky, 4 - year - old son of the Olmsteds, pointed to a dish of the Chunky Fruit Salad and said, "We have lots of that," and his mother agreed that she serves it often. She finds that men like it, it is easy to make and it keeps over until the second day quite well.

THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, March 9, 1963 Ann Landers Don't Start Fight Over In-Law Push Dear Ann Landers: We just returned from our honeymoon and I'm so mad smoke is curling out of my ears! After my husband and I left the wedding dinner my in-laws stop>ed the orchestra, got up on the )Iatform and announced the engagement of their daughter. My parents spent a fortune 10 put on one of the loveliest weddings this :own has ever seen. I think it was just horrible of my in • laws ;o take advantage of the occasion to m o v e :heir own daughter into the spot- ight. A friend of mine even made the comment that my in-laws were very clever to announce their daughter's engagement at our wedding because it saved them the price of an engagement party- I am eager to get along with my husband's family, but after this galling incident I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Please tell me what you think of this sneaky little maneuver.—J.S. Dear J.S.: Announcements of this type are often made at gala events. There's nothing unusual about it. But it should not be sprung as a surprise on the host and hostess. As a matter of courtesy your in-laws should have asked for permission to make the announcement. Since it's over and done with, forget it. It's not worth a four door family fight. Dear Ann: You were so right in your answer to that numbskull who believes all women who work nights are running away from their family responsibilities and whooping it up with the boys. I am one of those "bimbos" as she calls us, who works the night shift. My job is dispatcher for the police department. If nobody would agree to work at night, she and millions of other citizens would be in a heck of a fix. Of course I'd prefer daylight hours but this important job demands night work. It's no picnic working from 11:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. and running a home besides. And then to have some lunatic tell our husbands they are nuts to let us out at night is insulting! Thanks for taking our part. — ANOTHER BIMBO Dear Bim: Yours was one of many letters expressing this point of view. Interestingly enough I received almost as many letters telling me I was cuckoo to defend the "bimbos" — and that unless I had worked a night shift I was not qualified to comment. Of course some night shift gals are pollying a bit with tfie boys, but they'd be doing the same thing if they worked afternoons. Dear Ann Landers: I'm 22/and the mother of two small children. My husband and I have had nit* merous arguments about my attending baby showers, and an occasional club meeting in the evening. I usually stay home to avoid a fight. I'm tied to the house all day because we can't afford help. The only opportunity I have to get out is when I attend a shower or a club party. I would be satisfied with one evening out every three weeks. He thinks nothing of going fishing with his friends on his day off, because he says a man has to "unwind." But he doesn't see why a woman needs a change of scenery. I'm becoming irritable and resentful. I scream at my kids and [eel like a prisoner in my own home. Can you help me?—INCARCERATED Dear Incarcerated: You should have your night out every three weeks plus one evening out together at least once every other week. A sitter is a bargain compared with the cost of a nervous breakdown or a shattered marriage. Show this to your husband and tell him to grow up and get off the dime. To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Date Bait," 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.
