I keep spoons, salad forks in quart jars, and knives and forks in two-quart jars. I always put paper or a piece of cloth in the bottom of the jar first. Never seal the jar if there is steam in the room from something cooking and be sure to put the cover on good and tight. I want to thank the lady who sent in the hint about putting cornstarch in the water when we wash our win Helois* dows. To me this is absolutely wonderful. B.B. The woman who wrote the above hint about cornstarch said that she put cornstarch in warm water to wash her windows. Then, when it completely dried, she merely wiped it off! It worked for me too. Heloise Dear Heloise: The thread with which the rings were sewn on my cottage curtains was quite worn. I re- sewed them with some dental floss and now they hang nicely. They are sturdy and will last longer than ordinary thread. Mrs. Anne E. Richards Letter of Laughter Dear Heloise: For mothers who have arguments from their little ones at bedtime. . . Try setting your ordinary cook ing timer for at least six or seven minutes. When the bell "pings" this is the signal for bed. After all. ... who can argue with a timer? This works so well in our house. We have to remember to pack it for trips and vacation! By the kiddies request. . . Mrs. Dix Dear Heloise: I would like you to pass on a hint from my grandma which she handed down to me. I was surprised to find that everyone does not know about it. When cooking cornmeal for breakfast cereal or other uses, mix the cornmeal with cold water before stirring into the boiling water and it does not get lumpy. Mrs. McNulty Dear Heloise: Here is a sugestion for those who sew at home: PRINTED PATTERN 4754 .SIZES 14'/a-24tt '^A Historical Sites On DAR Program Invited guests of General Edward Hand Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, Saturday were members of the Betty Washington Chapter, Lawrence.

Use a piece of styrofoam for pin cushion! This is wonderful for pins! St. Louis Dear Heloise: Do you have any suggestions 'or ironing "catchers"? Everytime I iron a table cloth [ spread papers or a white sheet under the ironing board and both are messy and unsatisfactory. Mrs. L.S.D. Why don't you take an old piece of plastic and throw it on the floor? If you do not have a piece of plastic in your house why don't you take down your shower curtain? This is wonderful as thej material will not cling to it as much as it would on a sheet. Heloise Dear Heloise: Those white plastic window shades which have a slight tear ... or do not fit a window properly make excellent shelf and draw liners. It's very easy to cut, and is also washable- Joan Paulson Dear Heloise: Here is a hint for those of us fortunate, enough to have dishwashers: Use a long handled vegetable bursh to go over the dishes and shove the scraps down the disposal while the water is running. You can also clean the sink up at the same time with the same brush. (Use the brush as you do the broom in your bathtub.) This sure saves your hands from scouring powders! Mrs. 0. Wright Dear Mrs. Wright: How could anybody get along without those vegetable brushes? Heloise Heloise welcomes all mail, especially household hints which she can pass on to readers as space permits.
