Six Tips Worth Remembering PICTURE RECIPE - Heat canned sauerkraut, tseason- ed to taste, with frankfurters and canned onions in a big covered skillet for a quick main dish. Ann Landers Wornout Lothario Dumps 'Old Lady Dear Ann Landers: When are you going to get smart and give people some practical, down-to- earth advice they can live with? Why not be honest and tell the young men who write that they are nuts to get married until they are 40. And then, they ought to marry a woman who is at least 10 years younger (20 years younger is better yet). I made the usual boner. I got hooked when I was 22. By the time I was 32 I knew I had Ami made a big mistake. But being a gentleman, I hung around another 10 years until the kids were raised. Then I dumped the old lady. One year later I married a doll who is 18 years my junior. It cost me $60,000 to make the switch ,but it was worth every penny. If you are honest Ann Landers, you will admit in your column that all first wives should be shot when they reach the age of 40.— SECOND TIME AROUND Dear Second Time Around: Every few days I get a letter from some middleaged Lothario who mistakes the slowing up of his sex drive for the death rattle. He then must prove to himself (and to the world) that he has lost none of his vim and vigor so he starts chasing around with a chick young enough to be his daughter. The restless neurotics who want to automatically shoot their wives at 40 should consider saving the last bullet for themselves. Read the next letter Dear Ann Landers: Please forgive the looks of this letter. The ink is a little smeary but I spilled some bourbon on it. I know you don't care for drinking, but when I tell you why I am a little loaded you won't be so hard on me. I was married for 28 years to a fine woman. She helped me build a business from the ground up. I don't know how she found the energy to run our home, have four children and be my right hand in the business, too, but she did. She even took care of my sick father until he died. Three years ago a well-shaped, Wherever you go... KEEPUPI with the Have the HERALD Sent TQ You b'vely girl came to work for me. She had been married and was in the process of getting a divorce. I was flattered by her attention and soon we made plans to see each other out-of-town on weekends. Then we began to go out together right, in town. She made me feel young again. It was as if I had discovered a new world. Something must have snapped in my head because one day I decided to ask my wife for a divorce so I could marry this 27-year-old. Everybody was shocked. My children told me I was crazy. Our friends all sided with my wife. All she said was, "If this is what you want you should have it." I had to give my wife plenty— that's the law out here — but I was sure it was worth it. My new wife and I took a 3- month honeymoon. By the time we got home I was sick of her. The sex attraction was gone. She seemed to go .completely dead. I know now I should have stayed with my comfortable old slippers. These new shoes are not for me. I'm ashamed to admit I was such a fool. I've wrecked my life, broken a good woman's heart, lost the respect of my children and have earned the title of -JACKASS OF THE CENTURY Dear Jackass: I can add nothing to your letter. You've said it all. And now — just a word of advice: Millions of people have looked for a solution at the bottom of a bottle. No one ever found one there.

By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor WE DARESAY that every cook in the world who has ever followed a recipe has occasionally discarded some small direction in it. Sometimes throwing a recipe tip to the winds doesn't much matter, sometimes it does. Here are half, a dozen specifics that we recommend you follow, along with the reasons why. 1. Reputable recipes for poached eggs suggest that the skillet or other pan in which the poaching is to be done be greased before the boiling water or eggs are added. Do so! If you do not, the eggs will stick more than necessary when you lift them out, and you'll have a thin layer of tenacious egg white to clean off the bottom of the pan. 2. What used to be known as the hard-boiled egg is now often called the hard-cooked egg. This newer term sounds stuffy, pedantic, and carping, but the intention behind it is honorable. The hard-cooked egg term came into being as a reminder that egg whites, when cooked at too high a temperature for too long a time, really can toughen to the point of becoming rubbery. 3. When artichokes are cooked in water, recipes sometimes direct that a little olive oil or another salad variety be added. This is worthwhile because the oil makes the artichoke leaves glisten and seems to improve the texture of their edible base. If olive oil is used, the flavor also benefits. 4. When we write recipes for preparing asparagus and broccoli, we usually suggest that the outer fibrous covering of the stalks be removed with a swivel-blade vegetable parer. If you want to make sure that the stalk portions of the vegetable cook as quickly as the tops and are tender, you'll enjoy the results of following this suggestion. 5. Recipes for preparing seal lops usually caution cooks to keep heat low and cook the seafood briefly. This rule is worth observing because nothing toughens faster than a scallop that is overcooked. 6. Modern rules for cooking frankfurters often suggest that they be covered with boiling water and simmered (not boiled) for about 10 minutes or until hot. Because franks are cooked in the making, they do not need boiling in home kitchens — a procedure that toughens them.
