Ann Landers State Your Piece But No "Sassing" Dear Ann Landers: I am getting very close to 12 years old so I consider myself almost a teenager. What do you think about freedom of speech for us? I don't mean sassing adults. I mean just talking back to parents when we don't happen to agree with them. Don't you think kids ought to have their say when an argument comes up? Or do you t h i n k (hey should just sit there and not answer back with anything just because the .. , other person happens to have lived on this earth about 28 years longer? ...,*<* -» „«»**«*'—•*'t*-"X**4VMM«V»MV*'« *>V v *' f •*7"'»^ Please give us an answer right away because a lot of us kids are having this problem lately. —BUGGED Dear Bugged: Thanks for writing. A lot of parents are having this problem, too. In order to answer properly, I'd have to know what you consider "answering back" and how it is different from "sassing? Kids should be allowed to present their side of the story, but having presented it they should accept the decision of "that person who just happens to have lived on the earth about 28 years longer." Dear Ann Landers: I take violent exception to the advice you gave the landlady who complained because two working girls entertained male company m their apartment anywhere from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. You said, "As long as the tenants pay their rent, keep the property in good condition and refrain from distrubing the neighbors the landlady has no right to complain about their morals." I have news for you. The landlady has a right to complain if the tenants are turning her property into a brothel. I've rented apartments for a long time and I try to be careful. But it's impossible to judge people by looking at them. I've had neighbors who go on hunting and fishing trips at dawn tell me they see men sneaking out of my apartment house at 4:00 and 5-00 a.m. Of course I give these girls notice but too often I get the same kind in their place. You don't help any by telling these budding Cleopatras -it's O.K. so long as they don't disturb the neighbors. Thanks for nothing.—E.C.W. Dear E.C.W.: No landlady should permit her apartment house to be turned into a brothel. And it requires no genius to figure out that girls who have a steady stream of male visitors at odd hours are not likely to be entertaining socially. My advice pertained to working girls. They should not have to account to the landlady for their visitors. Why don't you insist on references if you have so much trouble? Dear Ann Landers: The letter from "Loose Bolt" bolted loose a few memories for me. I, too, had romantic fantasies about my "lost love." For 17 years I mooned around when I heard "our song." I kept visualizing our life together — as it might have been if we had married. Then the alumni association announced its big reunion. His name appeared on the roster as one who would be in town for it — with his wife and two children! My heart leaped! I talked it over with my husband and we agreed to invite the old boy friend, his wife and children to stay in our home. I scrubbed, polished, waxed, shined and ran myself to a frazzle for 10 days straight. When they arrived I almost went through the floor. My poetry • writing dream-boat had turned into a bald-headed, paunchy, stuffy old bore. He bossed Ms children like a tyrant and his wife cowered in the corner when he looked at her. My husband and I roared with laughter when they left. I had been living with a dream for 17 years. How nice to be awake! -SQUARED AWAY Dear Squared: And moreover you got your house cleaning done. To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope. RICH TREAT — Mrs. Dale Dieterich, Princet >n, holds a plate of Chrunchy Thins, a snack with butterscotch flavor. The recipe as well as others from her file are given in the accompanying story. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith). Good Flavor And Eye Appeal In These Wholesome Foods ^.••••W^^^^— Miscellany Lois L. M. S. Easter is a day of hope and faith, a time of gladness and gratitude for the proof of life eternal. How wonderful that it comes in spring when all around us are signs of the renewal of life in shrubs, trees and flowers which have stood dormant through a season of winter. It is always of interest to know the date of Easter for the coming'year. We are reprinting a c h a r t from an o 1 d newspaper clip ping which provides the Easter lates for every year up to and including 2000. It was loaned by Mrs. R. B. Moore, 306 E. 15th. 1964-March 29 1965-April 18 1966—April 10 1967-March 26 1968-April 14 1968-April 6 1970-March 29 1971-April 11 1972—April 2 1973—April 22 1974-April 14 1975—March M 1976-April 18 1977—April 10 1978—March 26 1979-April 15 1980-April 6 ^ 1981—April 10 1982—April 11 1983-Apri! 3 1984-April 22 1985-Apri) 7 1986—March 30 1987—AprU 19 1988-April 3 1989—March 26 1990—April 15 1991—March 31 1992—April 19 1993-April 11 1984-April 3 1995-April 16 1996-April 7 1997-March 30 IMB-AprilU 1999—AprQ 4 2000—April 23 Many years ago Miss Eleanor Lloyd, second grade teacher at Lincoln School, began an Easter tradition in her room which shows promise of continuing as long as she teaches. It is the making of paper Easter lilies. Once, not so many years ago, Miss Lloyd remarked to a fellow teacher that she believed she would just omit the Easter lily project as she had carried it on so many years. However, events just didn't work out that way. As the time drew nearer Easter, this child and that child asked when they would start on the Easter lilies. They had heard about it from older brothers or sisters and looked forward to the time when they could carry on the tradition. White Shrine Easter Program An Easter program was given at the meeting of White Shrine Thursday evening. It included an Easter tribute, "The Art of Worhip," by Lee Finch; an original poem, "This Is Easter," by Mrs. Lee Finch, and a vocal solo, 'There is a Green Hill Far Away," by Miss Gladys Anthony. It was announced a rummage sale will be April 25. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Maxwell served refreshments at the close of a social evening. SocioJettes Spending the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. H A. Ward, RFD 1, will be their son and family, Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Ward and children, Debra, Dana and Douglas, St. Joseph, Mo. The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by • reader. Mrs. Dale Dieterich, Princeton, says her husband and her two sons, Dale, Jr., 15, and Bill, 11, encourage her to stick to plain foods and she agrees with their idea. Favorite menus with the family are roast beef with brown gravy, browned potatoes, carrots and a salad, and steak or chicken, baked potatoes, tossed salad and hot bread. "My husband has always been easy to please," Mrs. Dieterich says. "This may be due to the fact that the last advice his mother, an excellent cook, gave him just before we were married was, "Don't ever mention your mother's cooking." Mrs. Dieterich says that some of her recipes most often requested are from her mother's file. One of these is Raisin Cream Pie. Raisin Cream Pie I'/S c. raisins (cooked) 3 egg yolks 2/3 c. sugar 2 1 A tbsp. cornstarch \>/i c. milk Cinnamon to your taste Mix sugar cornstarch and cinnamon. Add a small amount of hot milk to this mixture and return to saucepan on stove. Heat thoroughly. Add a small amount of hot mixture to well beaten egg yolks and return to saucepan. Add cooked raisins and cook until thick. Put into baked pie shell. Spread meringue on top and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown (about 10 minutes). This cook says her favorite pie crust recipe is 1 c. flour 1 A c. Crisco 1 A c. water and salt. Another pie recipe from her mother's file is the following one you'll want to save for fresh peach time. Fresh Peach Pie Fill unbaked pie shell with peeled thick-sliced fresh peaches. Beat 2 eggs in measuring cup and add cream to 1-cup line. Pour over peaches. Distribute evenly over this 1 c. sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees and then 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Mrs. Dietericb included this potato salad recipe at her bus band's suggestion. Simple to make, it has just that "something" in the way of flavor which makes it special. Potato Salad Meat platter of boiled potatoes 6 hard boiled eggs (chopped fine) 1 large green pepper (chopped) 1 large jar stuffed olives (sliced) 2 bunches green onions with some of the tips (sliced thin) Celery seed A little less than 1 quart Miracle Whip salad dressing mixed with sugar Vinegar to taste Salt Dice the cold potatoes and add remaining ingredients, Sprinkle op of salad with paprika. "Having our own beef for the reezer, we usually have an abundant supply of ground beef on land," says Mrs. Dieterich. "To jreak the monotony of ham- Durgers, meat balls and meat loaf, which are all popular with my family, I prepare Beef Hun- ;arian occasionally. My husband is fond of this. It's nice enough [or company." Beef Hungarian 1 Ib. ground beef % c. chopped onion 1 small clove garlic, minced 2 tbsp. four 2 tsp. salt dash pepper 1 can (3 oz.) mushroom slices, with liquid 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 c. cultured sour cream 1 pkg. (6 oz.) noodles, cooked. Brown meat with onion and garlic. Add flour, salt, pepper and mushrooms. Cook 5 minutes. Stir occasionally while cooking. Add soup; simmer uncovered 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Serve hot over noodles. Makes 4 servings. Mrs. Dieterich reports that she likes the Tuna-Broccoli Casserole but prefers to make Biscuits Supreme from Better Homes and Gardens rather than use refrigerated biscuits. Tuna-Broccoli Casserole With Biscuits 1 pkg. frozen broccoli spears 1 7-oz. can tuna, drained and broken Va c. milk 1 lO'/^-oz. can condensed cream of mushroom soup Paprika 1 can refrigerated biscuits Melted butter Crushed potato chips Heat oven to 375 degrees.

I had them restored at CITY SHOE SHOP Hints From Heloise THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, April U, IMS Don't Waste Celery Tops; Dry Them For Seasoning By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Friends: I would like to tell you about celery tops and what I learned recently about them. A few months ago a woman wrote about the waste we have in our kitchens. One of the many things she mentioned was tow we women cut off celery ;ops and throw them away, and later bought them in a box at store. How valuable they were when it came to vitamins and raw many ways we could use them. Celery tops , are wonderful when chopped up fresh and added to lettuce salad. She gave me a lint as to how top reserve them. Here's low: When you buy stalk celery . . . wash it thoroughly. Put it on a dough or cutter board, take a sharp knife and cut the tops off. I found that if you start at the end and cut the celery leaves off every one-fourth inch . . .that they end up beautifully. Now. . . once in awhile you Helois* lace in 8-inch square baking lish, cover with tuna. Mix milk and soup together in a saucepan until creamy; heat thoroughly Meanwhile, dip top of each biscuit in the melted butter anc crushed potato chips. Pour hot soup mixture on broccoli anc ,una. Sprinkle with paprika. Place tiscuits plain-side-down on to] of hot soup mixture. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until biscuits are done. This recipe for Crunchy Thins is one Mrs. Dieterich has many calls for. She cautions that they are very rich so you'll only want one at a time. Be sure to get the listed brand of butterscotch morsels. A different brand doesn't seem to work. Crunchy Thins 12-oz. pkg. Nestles Butterscotch Morsels 1 3-oz. can Chow Mein noodles Vz c. large salted peanuts (Planters) broken in half. Bring water in double boiler to a boil. Put morsels in top part and immediately remove double boiler from stove. Stir until morsels are completely melted. Add noodles and peanuts. As you mix, cut the noodles with spoon and mix well. Drop by teaspoons on cookie sheets covered with waxed paper and spread real thin. Cool. Makes 18 fairly large pieces. Senior Club Letter From New York Read at the Senior Club meeting yesterday in Youth Center was a letter from the Senior Citizens of Buffalo, N. Y., asking that a representative from Ottawa attend Senior citizens Month at Buffalo some time between April 25 and May 24. Three guests, Mrs. George Hayward, Mrs. May Phillips and Mr. Wallace Keen. Following the patriotic ritual there was group singing with Mrs. W. L. Pickering at the piano. Devotions included a scripture reading from St. Luke and the 23rd Psalm repeated in unison. Birthdays of Mrs. Nellie Batdorf and Mrs. Wanda Peters were observed. For entertainment there were readings: "Undeceived," by Flora Sherman; "A Dogwood Legend, and "Iowa Fair,", Mrs. Nora Foley; "Pontius Pilate Speaks," Mrs. Lillian Spears; and "Parage of Easter Customs," Mrs. Viola Robinson. Singing "The Old Rugged Cross," was a quartet composed of Mrs. Myrtle Graham, Mrs. Virgie Brady, Mrs. Margaret Williams and Mrs. Spears. It was announced that the four scrapbooks furnished and made by the club had been delivered to Ransom Memorial Hospital for the children's section and that 35 plastic flower vases and artificial flowers for them would be taken to the hospital Saturday for Easter. Refreshments of deviled eggs, sandwiches and jelly tarts were served by Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Josie Hall and Mrs. Flora Sherman. will get a piece of celery stalk itslef in here. Never mind. Leave it. It's wonderful later when you get ready to use the dried celery for other things. And gals, I have learned that when celery is cheap and on sale — watch your ads in the papers — that you can buy two stalks of celery and get twice as much for your money. Saves work when drying celery leaves, too. Take a cookie sheet and cover it with a piece of foil. Put all the celery leaves on the covered cookie sheet. It will be so many that you will wonder where you are going to put them and whatever will you do with so many. Take it from me. . . in the next few days there will be practical ly nothing (and don't we wish we could do just that with all our housework?). Put this cookie tin in your oven. If you have gas stove. . . the pilot light alone will dry the leaves out in a few days. If you have an electric stove. . . after you get through using the oven every time. . . let it cool a bit and while still warm. . . place these celery tops back on the rack in your oven. Once the leaves start dehydra ting, fold the foil around them to make a bag. Keep this in the oven until all moisture is gone In time. . . (a few days) the leaves will shrink to practical!} nothing. Then take your hand; and crush the leaves and par tides of celery stems. Put in jars and cap well. Next time you make soup, those nice boiled new potatoes etc. crush in some of these dried eel ery leaves. We even put them in spaghetti sauce now and it' delicious! Save anyway you can, gals, anc never throw away anything that can be utilized. Heloise Dear Heloise: )ear Heloise: When my neighbor paints with roller she puts a large paper bag over her roller pan before putting the paint in the pan and when she is through painting she ust pulls the bag off and her >an is clean. I find that when I get ready to bake and if all my brown sugar is hard as a rock that I can put it in my oven a while at a low temperature and it will soften. This also works for powdered sugar. Mildred Young. It works! I just took a hal box of hard, brown sugar aw wrapped it in foil and placed in my oven. Sure enough it wa soft again. However, do your measuring then, as my b rown sugar became hard again after it cooled. But while it's nice and sof you can measure it for baking make syrup etc. Heloise Mrs. Roy Stuart Wouldn't a plastic bag be great oo? Heloist Club Forecast Monday ZIOZAO CLUB, Mri. John Sommer.
