Hints From Helolse Heloto* Gloves By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I have found the secret of keeping white cotton gloves white! I am an executive businesswoman and must wear white gloves every day. This requires an immaculate pair every time I shake someone's hand. The real secret .is: After they are thoroughly washed and you are sure the fibers are well soaked with water md soap has been well rinsed out ... use a 1 i t t 1 e starch in your final rinse water! The starch not only brings new life into the gloves but. . . the next person who shakes hands with you, the next door knob you open, the next satchel you carry, or baby carriage you push — the glove will not absorb the soil as fast as it would if they were not starched. Heloise, I feel after years of using this method, that the starch prevents dirt from being absorbed into the tissues of the fabric itself. Am I right? Glove Lover Dear Glove Lover: After checking with authorities who are in the business of making different kinds of starches, I find that you are exactly right. Thanks for this tip — you darling! Heloise Dear Heloise: I wonder if any reader can tell us how to preserve fresh flowers? We have such a beautiful array of flowers that I would like to look forward to seeing them preserved through the coming months. I have heard of a home method. Do you know how to do it? K. M. Erkert If you have an aswer, please write to Heloise care of this paper. Dear Heloise: When painting and you have any sort of dealy, but plan on get- any sort of delay, but plan on ting back to your painting in an hour or so, wrap your brushes or your roller in a piece of plastic wrap. I have left brushes and rollers wrapped overnight and they were still just as moist and nice as they were when I stopped paint- ing. Saves a lot of time and fuss. Mrs. C.A.B. Dear Heloise: I keep cookies, crackers, potato chips, bread crumbs, cereals, pretzels, etc., crisp and fresh by storing them in my gas range oven where the pilot, light burns constantly and gives just enough heat to keep .them fresh in damp weather. , I have never had any of these products, become stale. Yon are right! I tested it and it is so! And if you have some saggy potato chips — leave them in the oven a while. They will get crisp again. Heloise Dear Heloise: I have a lot of vinyl tile flooring to clean. When I wax it the kids slip. My mother-in-law told me to put about a half cup of liquid wax in half a bucket of warm water for mopping the floors. I used my favorite wool nap and my floors look wonderful.

S. J Lois Those home economists at K- State have the right idea to interest girls in their type of work. No doubt the 39 Ottawa High School girls who will accompany Mrs. Frances Wren to the Hospitality Day on the K-State campus Saturday will find that the field is much broader than they knew. There will be exhibits in all areas of K-State home economics during the day. Art, nursing dietetics teaching, extension, journalism, fam- i 1 y economics, food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, institu- • •• ional management, and fam- ly and child development will be stressed. The girls will eat lunch prepared and served by students in institutional management and will see a style show featuring clothing K-Staters have designed and made. Here are some trends which effect living today and to which home economics can make a contribution: Eighty per cent of high school graduates marry within five years. Fifty • three per cent of •11 girls between 15 and 19 are or have been married. Women are largely responsible for the education of their families. Women own 70 per cent of the nation's wealth. Married women are working outside the home and have longer working lives than we think. The job of homemaking includes aspects of home furnishings, equipment, housing, textiles and clothing, health and safety, nutrition am) food, consumer economics, family finance, house management, child development, family and com munity relationships. A dual role is a strenuous life for a woman. Homemaking education should help make the stresnuous life more enjoyable and satisfying. Sixty per cent of all working women are married; thus hold two jobs — homemaking plus another job. By 1970, three million women will switch from housework to jobs. These wives, mothers, and widows will also need marketable skills. Life in this modern age becomes increasingly complicated. It was bad enough back in the old days when grandfather and grandmother had to worry every spring about the truth in the rumor the peach crop was all frozen. We've just read that Florida, California and Arizona have lost around half their orange crops. Furthermore, heavy frosts in far south Europe have drastically cut the olive crop, largely grown for export. The cost per gallon of olive oil in New York is up by 50 per cent over a year ago.

We moved into his rather large home three years ago when my mother-in-law died. Several months ago he suffered a stroke. His recovery has been very good and he now has the use of all his faculties. The only thing which is troublesome is that his right side is partially paralyzed and it is difficult for him to eat properly. He spills food on the tablecloth, on himself, and sometimes on the floor. Our children i r e 7, 0 and 10 and we a r e trying to teach them good table manners. When they see their grandfather slopping all over, it's a problem to make them toe the mark. I have suggested that we feed Grandpa in his room. My husband won't hear of it. Mealtime should be a pleasant family affair and it can't be pleasant with the old man at the table. I hope you will agree with me because my husband and I have been arguing about it for weeks and I need help.-BATTLE FATIGUE Dear Battle: Grandpa should not be isolated from the family. It would be cruel to feed him in his room. More important than a clean tablecloth and meticulous manners is compassion and understanding for people who are old and sick. Explain to your children why grandpa spills things. Encourage them to help him and to be kind and considerate. This experience could be an important lesson for your children and help them to be better human beings. Dear Ann Landers: Why is it that some people think just because you live next door to a family you know their every move and are perfectly willing to act as messenger boy, check-room attendant, or anything they want. It happened again today. A woman banged on my neighbor's door for 10 minutes. It sounded like a herd of elephants. Then she came over and handed me * package. She didn't ask me, sltt told me to give the package to my neighbor. Delivery boys leave plants, groceries, fertilizer, whatever they want to unload so they won't have to make another trip. Please print this letter and educate the public. Just because « family happens to live next door doesn't mean they are bosom buddies or even nodding acquain* tances.-NOT CHUMMY Dear Not Chummy: Some neighbors arc happy to help out — even if they're not bosom buddies. I'd hate to live next door to you, sister, but if we should wind up neighbors I'd be happy to take care of your packages.
