Hints From Heloise Make Contour Sheet For Baby's Mattress By IIELOISE CRUSE Dear Folks: Winfred Hathcote lias told us hat she made baby bed contour sheets for her four babies from •epular sheets. Bright idea! Here is how she did it! Lay your regular sheet over four baby mattress (I found it easier, after making two baby sheets, to put the mattress on my dining room table) or cut regularsheet in half (yes. . . you can usually get two baby sheets out of a large one). One more tip rom my dining •oom. . . do not use new sheets 'or this. If you can afford a new heet, put t h e new sheet on your bed a n d take your old sheet — which is worn and thin— Helois* and make baby sheets out of these. The baby does not weigh as much as you and I do and the sheet will last much longer. Hold the corners out in a 40 degree angle. Pin at the edge of the mattress. Take your scissors and cut this part off. The 'hunk" that comes out, fold "cat- ty-wonkle" or diaper fashion, and sew this pie-shaped piece underneath your mattress in each corner. Sew the biased edges to the sheet itself. Let the folded part form the triangle across the corner of the mattress on the bottom side. Ladies, it is the answer to worn sheets! You and I weigh many, many pounds (and oh, how I wish I could lose 10) and it is a proven fact when a sheet is worn and thin that pounds and pounds of weight will split it eventually. Right? These little Angels-from-Heaven don't weigh as much as we do. The light weight of their bodies will not tear the sheet. Use the old sheets! Baby needs them! By having a few "extras" on hand when the day comes (and it will!) that you do not get your laundry done or you are too tired, or sick, or just plain disgusted (as most of us are lots of times) you will have that extra sheet. Kiss all your babies for me. I only wish I could. Quenemo OES Honors Past Patron QUENEMO — The Quenemo Chapter, No. 63, Order of the Eastern Star, met April 1 with Elaine and Paul Smith, worthy matron and patron, presiding. Sixteen officers and members, three visitors from the Melvern chapter and two visitors from Lyndon were present. Patricia Yockey, worthy matron of Lyndon Chapter No 466, was introduced and welcomed. The charter was draped in a ceremony held in memory of Forest Hashbarger, past grand patron of the Grand Chapter of Kansas. Barbara Driver sang "In The Garden" during the ceremony. During the good of the order, Barbara Driver, conductress and Avis Irey, associate conductress, were honored in an Easter ceremony. They were welcomed by the worthy matron and pre- Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: A penny saved is a penny earned! When I am all through with a cotton house dress — if it has a full skirt — I cut if off at the waist and open up the side seams. I make gay pillow cases out of the skirt. Since the hem is already in the skirt, I use this for the open end of the pillow case. Just fold the skirt over, then sew the bottom and one side to make the pillow case. (I use one of my regular pillow cases against the skirt material first for a pattern.) My children love these printed pillow slips which I make from all of my old dress skirts. If the skirt is narrow there won't be enough material to make two pillow cases. . . but who cares . . . they are wonderful on twin beds. Full gathered skirts make two and sometimes three pillow cases. A.F.Y. Dear Heloise: I keep a clothes pin clipped to the outside of our mail box on the front porch to attach letters "to be mailed." The postman always sees them. Old worn-out, bedsheets have many uses for which the housewife should take into consideration before discarding them. I use my old ironing board cover for a pattern and use the strongest part of the sheet near the-selvage, hem the edges, and make new covers for my ironing board. Just cut the material and hem it on your machine and run an elastic or drawstring through the hem. One can make more than sented spring corsages of pink one cover from a sheet. Change and yellow carnations. j these covers as often as need be Thelma Nelson sang a welcome and have a clean one ready for TO SING — Gospel-Tones, trio from Central Bible Institute, Springfield, Mo., will sing at Ottawa's First Assembly of God Church, 13th and Mulberry, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and at 11 a.m. Sunday worship service, Rev.

Schaffer Dear Heloise: I had a glass cut to fit the top if my dining room table. Underneath this glass I put my lace doilies. It looks real pretty and saves both the table and my doilies! With a flick of my sponge I can keep the glass clean. The same would apply to plastic, I suppose, if anybody wanted to have a plastic top made. J. H. B Dear Heloise: This is the way I clean my hammered aluminum pots and pans: just heat the utensil and then brush it with a stiff wire brush The dirt comes right off. Mrs. J.S. Dear Heloise: When baking cookies I always cover my cookie sheet with foil, shiny side up, this saves greasing the cookie sheet, keeps it clean and no sticking. I always make a double batch of cookies and I can put the unbaked cookies on a second sheet of foil while the first batch is cooking in the oven. It. saves loads of time and no messing around.
