15&M THR OTTAWA HERALD Monday, April 1, 1961 N ' % -', vAY<-V-<*'* J \-f"- *•' BRIGHTEN THE CORNER — Most spring-like is this arrangement featuring tiny bird on nest of lavender statice. Pussy willows form tall lines with pink carnations and snapdragons, statice and foliage forming triangular part. Arrangement would make nice buffet piece for large dinner. It was made during recent Garfield Gardners lesson on flower arranging. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Hints From Heloise Paint Gives New, Exciting Touch To Old Lamp Shade By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: For those who have old paper and fabric covered lamp shades (with paper lining) may I suggest how I renovate all of our shades? I am in this business. Dust the shade inside and out well with a brush. Paint t h e in- ( , side of the shade with any paint which happens ^ to be about the' house. (Use a brush.) One m u s t use a. black, darkt gray, dark brown, or aluminum paint. Heloiw I prefer aluminum but often use black. Let this dry overnight. Now paint over the dark color on the inside of the shade with white or any pastel paint. I always use a non-shiny, flat paint. Amazingly enough, one coat invariably covers perfectly. Hang the shade with a string to thoroughly dry on the clothes line etc. The last operation. . . Paint the outside of the shade with any coor in the world! One coat of flat paint only. Then let hang to dry once again. Results? New shades that can be sponged off when soiled. If a contrasting trimming is desired buy some at a dime store. One-fourth inch velvet ribbon is very attractive on these shades. Stationery stores sell "paper" narrow banding in colors and metallics, so often found on new shades. If one is planning to use new trim on their shade. . . the old trim should be pulled off before painting. The new bindings may be applied with glue. Reason for the dark colors on the inside: If a dark color is not applied ; first you will have an unpleasant shade when lighted. Every brush rtrokje will show up. . After using the above method you will no longer have a translucent shade but an opaque one. Many of our finest new lamps are fitted with new opaque shades and give excellent lighting Jackie Kalani Wl I it f CH 2-4700 Dear Heloise: Here's a hint for use of barbc- que tongs in off season. I use tongs to reach baking pans and so forth that slide out of reach in my cupboards. I also use them for light-weight objects on high upper shelves! Connie Berburg Dear Connie: Did you know they were also good for reaching in that oven for a baked potato, a cake pan, or those corn pones? Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: My cupboards and refrigerator shelves are covered with freezer wrapping paper. If anything tips over, the wonderful wax surface can be readily wiped clean and no more danger of milk, juices, and so forth dripping from one refrigerator shelf to another. l My vegetable drawer also receives the freezer wrapping paper application before weepy vegetables are placed into it. And just who dosn't need the fastest, easiest way to do all expected of the housewife today? Mrs. Martin Graham I do! 1 find your hint excellent. Heloise Dear Heloise: My son who is left-handed does most of his own ironing and has taught me a couple of tricks when ironing or pressing pants and shirts. He stands on the other sid* (ladies, this is the wrong side) and uses the largest end of the board to press the legs e* his pants. The pants fit the shape of tin. ironing board and have to be moved very little to press the whole leg. Also, the weight of the other leg does not pull the pants off the ironing board because it is hanging over the wide end! Try this same position for ironing shirts, fronts and backs. It requires fewer movements of the entire garment. Luella K Heloise welcomes all mail, especially household hints which she can pass on to readers as space permits.

Ann Landers And She Wasn't Dressed To Ski Dear Ann Landers: I'm not a prude, nor am I the type to poke my nose into other people's business, but I value your opinion and would like your views. A friend of mine who is single and in her middle thirties has her own apartment. This friend is acquainted with a rather attractive gentleman about 40. He is a bachelor and has an apartment in the same building. I live in the building, too — down the hall from the gentleman. The other eve- ABB ning I came home later than usual — about 11:00 p.m I was shocked to see this woman, dressed for bed, nightgown, bathrobe, and slippers, just about to enter the man's apartment. Without the slightest hint of embarrassment she greeted me warmly and announced "My T.V. broke down and Reginald invited me down to see the late movie." This struck me as indecent. Or am I b'ving in ~ THE DARK AGES? Dear Ages: In our society, most people dress for the occasion. When one wears a ski suit folks just naturally assume he is going skiing. A person in shoulder pads and shin guards looks ready for ice hockey. Your friend used poor judgment. Dear Ann Landers: I married a widow three years ago My wife passed wasy in 1956, the same year her husband died. My own two sons have graduated from college and are on their own. My wife's two sons are 11 and 14 years of age. I love her boys as much as I love my own. They are devoted to me and we have a wenderful relationship. I want to adopt my wife's sons legally and change their name to mine. My wife is against it because she's afraid her former father-in-law will cut the boys out of his will if they do not carry on his family name. (They are tie last of his heirs.) While there is considerable wealth there I don't feel this is important. I am well able to support these boys, educate them and do all the necessary things. My pride is involved. What do you say?—DAD Dear Dad: Your sons will early on your family name. It is aot unreasonable for this grandfather to want his son's boys to ?arry on his family name. Unless the boys express a strong desire to have their names changed, I recommend that you disregard the financial advantages and respect the old gentleman's wishes.

CERAMIC WALLS & FLOORS FORMICA TOPS Inlaid Linoleum TILE Christian Bros. FLOORS CH 2-2285 Ottawa and I are fond of Mr. and Mrs. X. They are a working couple, as we are, and often the four of us have dinner together Mrs. X has a habit which I find embarrassing. My husband says it's ridiculous for me to have any feelings one way or (he other. Mrs. X has a small appetite. She often asks the waiter or waitress to put her leftover meat in a bag "for the dobg." My husband and I know they have no dog. Is this a cheap trick or not?-NEW YORKER Dear New Yorker: I am alternately saddened and sickened at the thought of the tons of edible food that wind up in American garbage pails. Taking home un eaten food from the restaurant makes a great deal of sense. The only thing that does not make sense is the invention of the dog. Why is Mrs. X defensive? The waiter or waitress couldn't care less. Confidential to INQUISITIVE DOUBLE DOME: Tell your friends all kinds of people read this column for all kinds of reasons. It is amusing that he describes your interest in this col umn as "the morbid curiosity of an eavesdropper or a window - peeper," while he claims his interest is that of a "sociologist who wishes to explore beha vior problems of the masses."
