An Answer to Ecology and Environmental Crisis DEAR ANN LANDERS: We hear a lot about ecology and the environmental crisis these days. Too many people say, "Yeah — it's terrible, but what can I do about it?" I have an answer. You can walk instead of ride. Put on comfortable shoes and start earlier. You'll feel better for having done so. If you can't walk, buy a bike, or join a car pool. Turn off a light. Turn off a faucet. Get mad at polluters. Report them. Write to your congressman about what goes on in your community—I mean those big industries that are lousing up the air and killing our beautiful lakes and rivers. Call your councilman. Pick up a candy wrapper. Attend a City Planning meeting — or any meeting where pollution is being discussed. Organize a glass, aluminum or paper collection. Clean up the park near your home. Give a damn. Read a book and learn the facts. Make a speech. Name names. Plant a tree. Plant a thought. Return your empties. Vote. Write your edi­ tor. Love your country, don 't leave it. Stick around and clean it up.—O. HM> DEAR O.: Beautiful! Let's hear it for a better quality of life for more people. Thanks for your letter. I just turned off a light. DEAR ANN LANDERS: There's a woman in this town who is a professional volunteer do-gooder. People run when they see her coming. She always has a handful of banquet tickets or chances on a Chevrolet or a trip to Las Vegas. MR. AND MRS. Frank Benthusen, 2300 West 17th, will be honored with a reception from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday in the Community Church of the Brethren, in observance of their golden wedding anniversary. Hosts for the occasion will be their children, Mmes. Howard Lindsey, Kansas City; Norman Shropshire, Amarillo, Tex.; and Edith Herbison, 911 North Van Buren, and their families. Mr. and Mrs. Bent* husen have eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. They request no gifts. THE GOLDEN wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Stratton of Walton will be observed with a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday in the Walton United Methodist Church. Their children, Alden, Walton, and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Bircher and family, 107 East tth, will be hosts for the event. There are five grandchildren. The couple requests no gifts. Last week she caught me twice—once for recreational equipment for handicapped children, and again for a needy family, burned out in a fire. Next week she heads a drive to buy a kidney machine. This woman is likable but no one can run into her without having it cost them money. Please print my letter so she (and others like her) will sec how their constant mooching looks to others. Thanks.—Lancaster, Penn. DEAR L.P.: Of course it's tiresome — being hit repeatedly for donations, tickets and worthy causes — but this woman (and others like per) aren't moocbers. All they get out of it is sore feet — and criticism from people like you. I 've done a good bit of what you call "mooching" myself and I 'm still at it — not raffle tickets, but worthy causes — and I can tell you, trying to raise money these days is very tough sledding. But somebody must do it, or a good many deserving projects would go down the drain. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell me how to cut clean from a very sweet guy who is Boresville.

M«in m Hulchinton, Kt, «7M1 17-year-old daughter — in fact, this could be the problem. My mother thinks he is marvelous Max is nice looking, a neat dresser, well mannered, says all tiie right things, makes hon or grades, plays the piano, and his dad is a doctor. But he's a sleeping pill. For example, on our last date he brought magazine articles which he read aloud. Then he asked me to listen to a speech which he gives before the De Molays next week. To top it all off he brought along a few hundred snapshots from his trip. Max called three times last week and quick thinking saved me. But I'm running out of excuses. Why can't I tell him he bores me and end it? Mom says, "Don't you dare!" Help me, please.—Two Faced In Mar tin's Ferry DEAR T.F.: Why hurt the guy needlessly? Somewhere there's a gal who would love to look at Max's snapshots and listen to him read articles. (It beats sitting home alone on Saturday night.) Do three people a favor and fix up Max with a friend. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.

I had my Dad cut a piece of wood 12 x 12 inches and I painted it to match my room. By Heloise Cruse lieve, I sifted enough flour for the day's baking in lets than five minutes? I will never use a flour sifter again, just nylon net. — Claudette L. Doubleday Dear Heloise: Three cheers for the woman who put a man's hat in the back window of her car, as I P«ge 7 The Hutchinson News Thursday, Oct. 7,1971 thought I was the only scaredy- cat. One night when my husband went hunting, I put a pair of his big boots on the front doorstep! This made me feel more comfortable while he was away. Barbie (S«nd your suggestions to Helolie, ear. of The Hutchinson News, Box No. 190 Hutchinson, Kan.) N e x t I painted several clip- type clothespins, glued them on the board, clipped the ribbons between the clothespsins and hung it on the wall. My ribbon hanger keeps my ribbons neat, was fun to make and looks pretty, too. Robin Peard, Age 13 Dear Heloise: This morning when I planned to bake bread and rolls, I found that I had misplaced my flour sifter. I couldn't get to the store to buy a new one, and was completely frustrated until I thought of your nylon net. I cut a piece, about a foot square, and would you be- TIME TO PLANT SPRING-BLOOMING Hyacinths * Narcissus • Tulips # Also healthy field-grown Creeping Phlox Hardy Mums Plan now for a beautiful flower garden next spring.
