Hints From Heloise Pictures Identify Children's Records By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: For pre-school children who Helots* have their own records and phonographs — in order to help them identify the various tunes, cut out pictures of rleated subjects such as of a farmer for "Farmer In the Dell," a pirate ship for "Treasure Island," and so forth. Paste these pictures in the center of the record! Mrs. John Heger Dear Heloise: We just had a <"> "new stainless steel sink put in our home. I was told never to use scouring powders on the stainless steel. Instead, the talesman told me to clean it with either vinegar or ammonia. These also work well on my stainless steel cookware when I add a little water to it. Could you tell me how to get mildew out of colored clothes? If so, please let us in on your secret. Write your letters to Heloise in care of this paper. And may tomorrow be your best day ever! Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: I have been starching clothes in my automatic washer for five years. Clothes should all be damp. First load the machine with dry clothes and set dail for final rinse. Reset at final rinse again using all cold water. Add the starch For items that need a heavier finish I stop the machine before the final spin. Remove these items and wring by hand right over the machine. For the rest of the clothes. . allow them to spin out completely This removes more starch water giving a lighter finish. If you use a dryer, add more starch as a dryer does beat out a lot of it. An Avid Reader Dear Heloise: Here is an easy way to finish off the cut-out on a belt where Show Film For Program Presenting the program for One-To-Six Club last evening was a guest speaker, Dr. Sam Lyman. He showed a film on "Dental Hygiene." Mrs. Floyd Thompson was hostess assisted by Mrs. Larry Wright and Mrs. Charles Talbott. Mrs. Victor Evans gave devotions. For roll call members told how long they had been married. Committees were appointed for the April dinner. Mrs. Gene Kramer was a guest. the buckle-pin comes through (even when you overcast them, some materials still fray.): This bright idea struck me the other day I used the buttonhole maker on my machine. This gives a choice of sizes, the finished job looks neat, and fraying is eliminated. Alice Dear Heloise: I hope that some of your readers can help me with this problem. How do you whiten a toddler's scuffed white shoes? I have tried soap and water and then the polish (3 or 4 different brands). The shoes always look gray and dirty at the toes and on the sides. Mrs. E.T. Somebody, please help this Mother. 'One of you may have the answer. . . Send your letters to Heloise in care of this paper. Love ya' Heloise Dear Heloise: I use a glass coffee server to boil water for instant coffee and deposits collect on it quite rapidly. Here is the method I use to keep it sparkling: Boil vinegar in the pot once a week and the lime deposits will dissolve like magic. Save the vinegar and pour it back into the bottle. It can be used over and over again. Wash and rinse the pot well. Mrs. A. K. Gotch Display Sewing Work Fifteen members of Zigzaggers Club displayed articles they had made as roll call reponses last evening at Mrs. R. F. Lollar's home.

She reported that some of the composers who greatly influenced 20th Century music were polytonality, the simultaneous use of more than one key at a time. Atonality, also used in this century, literally means "no key." tn practice it appears to imply the removal of any feeling of the dominance of tonality. Music of Stromberg exemplifies a tonality. The program included a vocal solo, "The Black Swan," by Gian- Carlo Menotti, Susan Kelly accompanied by Susan Sandow; flute solo, "Night Soliloquy," by Kennan, Susan Sandow accompanied by Gail Garrett; vocal solos, "I Heard the Forest Praying," by Peter DeRose, and "Iris," by Daniel Wolf, Mrs. Gene Mohr accompanied by Mrs. Raymond Gillette; piano solo, "Cradle Song," by Selim Palmgren, Mrs. J.

Some kids get to choose the parent they want to live with, but nobody asked me. I'm 15, my brother is 16. Mom divorced Dad for another man who changed his mind about marrying her. Now she has another boy friend who is mostly out of work. Dad gives Mom $550 a month which is for my brother and me. She hans't bought us f one stitch of clothes since the divorce — only two pairs of years. If I didn't shoes in two earn some money sitting and if Dad and Grandma didn't send us Christmas and birthday money we'd be in rags. My brother is in worse shape than I am because he has grown a lot and nothing fits him. We get $1 a week for milk money (we carry lunch) and that's it. Yesterday Mom bought her boy friend some new clothes anc a second-hand car because he needs it for a job, she said. We don't think she is being fair to us and we would like your ad vice. — RAGGEDY ANN AND ANDY Dear Ann and Andy; Your Da< should be told immediately. You mother is involved in a sordic mess and he is the one wh should straighten it out. Dear Ann Landers: I suspect am not the only physician wh reads your column every day. seldom disagree with you, but ONION NECKLACE Wearing an onion around the neck used to be fashionable—at least for cold sufferers. It's easy to see why this old-time cold remedy has now been discarded. We can't cure colds, yet, but we can relkvt their discomforts ... and avoid more serious complications by using the effective medications available today. But don't use any medicines indiscriminately. When you're flU be sensible. Let your physician to the diagnosing and prescribing. Then, if he recom- medication, tee us to quality prescriptions.

Please reconside your advice to "Horrified." She wrote about a gossipy nurs who had discussed her medica file with friends. You advised th patient to "Change doctors, an if the question is ever raised a to why, explain — leaving out a! names, of course." If the patient takes your ad vice, who suffers? First, the pa tient, because he risks less ef fective care which results from a loss in continuity of medica history. Second, the physician, because he loses a patient. The real culprit — the gossip) nurse — loses nothing. I feel the nurse should be re ported to the County Medical So ciety or the physician should be told directly. - FORTH WORTH M.D. Dear Doctor: You are right, was wrong. I accept two hard swats with an old ether mask. Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I and another couple (also married about 10 years) went to a movie last night. This movie was for adults only. There ow ahead of us. They looked bout 16. The movie was beautifully done ut it was not for 16-year-old kids. Vhat could have been a delight- ul evening for us was ruined by lese kids giggling, punching ach other and laughing in the wrong places. Please tell me, Ann, why do eenagers laugh during the most ender and meaningful parts of a movie? I can't for the life of me figure it out. Our children will teenagers in a few years and would like to be able to understand this. Thanks for whatever help you can give.—EVANSTON Dear Evanston: Laughter, particularly the giggly type, is the result of self-consciousness. When eenagers are embarrassed they often ract with giggles. (P.S. Some adults do too.) Confidential to Afraid of Gossips: So, if they talk what will they say? Probably, "How wonderful that two nice people got together" By all means accept lis invitation and have a good time. 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.
