Ann Landers Don't Try To Hold What You've Lost Dear Ann Landers: Six months ago Timmy gave me an engagement ring. I was the happiest girl in the world. We went together two years and he —was the kindest, most considerate person I had ever known. We spent our weekends looking for a little home to buy and we even had some furniture picked out. Tim was n e v e r out of my thoughts and I'm sure it was the same with him. Some things Ann are too good to be true and maybe this is the way it was with Timmy and me. He was killed in an accident five weeks ago. When our minister came to the house to tell me the terrible news I became hysterical and they had to call the doctor. I was in bed for three days. No one else can ever take Timmy's place. I will never fall in love again. Would it be wrong to continue to wear his engagement ring? My mother has been pleading with me to put it away and forget. She says I'm torturing myself. Is it wrong to cling to this wonderful memory? Please, Ann, help me. - BLACK BLACK BLACK Dear Friend: Your mother has given you sound advice. I hope you take it. There's a big difference between cherishing a memory and attempting to hang on to something which no longer exists. Time heals. The pain will gradually diminish and one day it will disappear. If this were not a fact, life would be unbearable. Dear Ann Landers: As the wife of a personnel manager I've been fairly close to office problems of every type. May I offer some suggestions for women employees? 1. Forget your feminine wiles during office hours. You'll advance faster by concentrating on your specific assignment. 2. Don't try to take over the office. Bossy people are resented. Especially women. 3. Don't toot your own horn. If you are competent and productive everyone will know it. 4. Keep the gossip and small gripes to yourself. Your boss has enough to think about without becoming enmeshed in petty office problems. 5. Avoid becoming chummy with married co-workers. Don't ask them to pick you up or to drive you home. 6. Never call your boss by his first name. Keep it on a Mr. basis at all times. And address all other executives by their last names, too. 7. Forget everything you know about the office personnel when you go home at night. And forget what went on at home when you leave for the office in the morning.—BUTTE. Dear Butte; You've packed a lot of common sense into limited space. I hope your letter lands on many an office bulletin board. Dear Ann Landers: Last summer some relatives were in a tight spot. My husband and I loaned them $400. The understanding was they would pay it back when they were able. Nine months have passed and they have not paid back a dime. Two weeks ago they traded their old car for a new one. We are still driving our 1958 model. When my husband saw this he was furious. We see these people several times a week. Should we tell them how we feel and probably lose their friendship? We're tired of acting pleasant to their faces and feeling resentment inside. Thank you.-TWO FACED Dear Two: Enough of the fun and games. Tell them you want to know when they can begin to repay the loan. If they make no effort — stop seeing them socially. It's impossible to feel friendly under the conditions you describe, so why pretend? To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for Ann Landers' book- et, "How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers wiU be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Miscellany L. M. S. Since visiting the Van Gogh collection of paintings and drawings recently at Nelson Art Gallery, we've run across a number of articles which throw more light on artists and paintings. In one such article Dorothy Adlow, art critic of Christian Science Monitor, says that an Impressionist paints what he sees. An Expressionist paints the way ;he feels about what he sees. The Impres- Isionist records more clearly sur- |f a c e appearances as well as t h e atmosphere pf the physical vorld. For the . . 'Expressionist a 1X118 view or a vista must make an impact, provoke a mood, precipitate a personal vision in line and color. Vincent Van Gogh, according to Miss Adlow, was one of the initiators of modern Expressionism. He added a personal ingredient to his rapturous depictions of landscape, houses, flowers. The Marais des Cygnes Chapter, Sweet Adelines, has practiced two nights a week for the past six weeks for the competition in Independence, Mo., this weekend and chose two songs, "At the County Fair," and "Just Knock Twice and Ask for Joe." The chorus will compete with 16 oth er choruses. The women's costumes are black dresses with full skirts, white collars and gloves, red and white striped vests and bright red patent high heel shoes. The costumes are identical down to the last detail — hose, skirt lengths — even make-up. Region 7, which includes Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebras ka, Kansas and Oklahoma, ha; 28 chapters and 7 other groups applying for charters. Mrs. Paul K. Worley learned of a garden tour to be April 23, while visiting her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Floyd Taggart, in Topeka. In fact, the garden of her parents will be one of the four featured on the tour, which will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Tea will be served at Meade Park, in the new Topeka Garden Center, from 2 to 4 p.m. The event officially opens the Garden Center, a historic home that has been restored and furnished by the cooperative effort of the Topeka Park department and Topeka garden clubs. Donations are to be one dollar. To reach the park, drive west on 6th street. All visitors are welcome. GIVEN SURPRISE - Mrs. R. C. Marcell, 1015 S. Main, was honor guest at a surprise party following choir practice Thursday evening at Westminster United Presbyterian Church. The event marked her 80th birthday and her 64th year as a member of some church choir. Naomi Club Plans Trip Naomi Club made plans at the meeting yesterday to go to the lOOF-Rebekah home, Manhattan, on May 17, the next meeting date. The group will take knee robes and bibs and provide a program for residents of the home. All Rebekahs are welcome to go and should prepare for a basket lunch.

Hints From Heloise Don't Be Shocked; Keep Room Moist Dear Heloise: Tell us what to do about static electricity in our homes. I am tired of being shocked each time I touch the light switch. Yes, I do have wall to wall carpeting. Boiling Dear Boiling: I am told that static electricity is caused from dry atmosphere. By introducing moisture into the room this eliminates most of it ' ... if you have enough moisture. If you remember back in the old days of radiators, wood^ stoves and flat top kitchen stoves, you always Helois* used to see Mama and Papa set a pan of water on top of it. This is called surface evaporation. A tea kettle on the kitchen stove does a pretty good job because it is putting moisture into the air too. Friendship Club Meets Mrs. Marion Stark was hostess for the recent meeting of Friendship Circle, assisted by Mrs. Albert Kraft. Mrs. Lloyd Wilkinson was in charge. Mrs. Dean Baer and Mrs. Frank Cannady won prizes in games. Mrs. Kraft gave two vocal numbers and played her own guitar accompaniment. The offering was $1.86. The hostess had made favors suggestive of spring for the refreshment trays. Mrs. Kenneth Gentry and daughter were guests. The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader. However, we burn a 24 hour vaporizer in our home — yep, the kind a child uses when he has the croup — during all of the cold months when the heat is on. Another thing. . . on the days when it rains, raise some of your windows a bit and let the moisture come into your home. Especially when it is foggy outside. Fog is wonderful. Full of moisture! There are also a lot of static electricity products on the mar ket. The National Institute of Rug Cleaning says "that any chemicals you might apply directly on your rug could cause more rapid resoiling. If you can just raise the humidity in your home you are far better off." But the funniest thing of all is, have you ever noticed that when you walked around the house barefoot, stocking footed, or in knitted - type booties that you never get static electricity? Or a shock? Here's a way to test it in your home: Walk across your carpeted room or down a hall. . . dragging your feet, then just touch a metal object! Do this while barefooted and then try it with your shoes on which have a leather sole. One will knock you for a flip! Guess which? Then tell me Why! Heloise Dear Heloise: I use a wet sponge when ironing. When I get a wrinkle in a garment where I "don't want one". . . I simply dampen my sponge, squeeze it out and wipe across the garment. Saves not only temper, it is wonderful. Cuttie Udvardy Dear Heloise: Those nicotine stains on fingers will leave if one will apply some cuticle remover! This also takes care of other stains too. M.C. Dear Heloise: When I buy salad greens, I wash them and then separate them into the divided amounts I ordinarily use to make our daily salads. I then put each portion into a plastic bag and refrigerate them. These individual portions are always crisp and ready to use and one does not have any greens left to be put back in the refrigerator. Saves time. Lynn C.

Mrs. Fred McFarland was a guest THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, April 20, 1963 Her Food Meets Taste Test There's no better way to learn what foods people like and how to prepare and serve the foods efficiently than in managing a tea room. That is one reason why friends of Mrs. Bernhard Fleming, Wellsville, say of her, 'Tt seems so easy for her." Mrs. Fleming had her own tea room in Wichita 10 years, then was assistant manager of Innes Tea Room, Wichita, and manager at another time of Wiley Tea Room, Wichita. "When I entertain, I do all T can ahead of time," Mrs. Fleming says. "If everything is all lined out it makes it easy at the last minute. Especially in catering a big wedding everything must move according to schedule." The recipe for Spanish Rice :ame from the Green Parrot, Kansas City, where it was very popular with diners. It is classed as 'unusual." Spanish Rice 1 tbsp. bacon fryings 1 c. uncooked rice 6 strips bacon, cut in pieces not too fine Vi c. onions, cut in strips 1 c. celery cut in 1 A inch pieces 1 pt. tomatoes salt pepper 1 tsp. sugar Vi tsp. chili powder, if desired Heat heavy kettle very hot; add raw rice and bacon pieces with the fryings and brown rice to a nice brown, but do not burn. Add onions, celery, green 'peppers and seasoning. Cover with water and let simmer until rice is tender. Stir only occasionally, using a fork so as not to mash up the vegetables. Add tomatoes and cook slowly for 5 minutes longer. Mrs. Fleming received the recipe for Hot Spiced Tongue from the woman who built her first tea room. Hot Spiced Tongue Parboil a tongue in salt water for one hour. Drain off water and peel the tongue. Add some whole spices, a carrot cut in pieces, one onion, 2 tbsp. vinegar; cover with water and cook until tender. Remove tongue and make a sauce by thickening the broth with about a dozen or so gingersnaps rolled fine. Add % c. white or dark raisins and cook until thick. Slice tongue and put into the sauce. Serve with drop dumplings and spinach (on the side). A most unusual dish popular with tea room patrons is the next recipe. If you can't associate the name of "custard" with chicken, then call it Scalloped Chicken but it bears no resemblance to most scalloped chicken recipes. Chicken Custard Cook one large fat hen until well done and dice. For sauce take the liquid from the chicken and remove the fat. To % pini fat (add butter if needed to make the amount) add 6 well beaten egg yolks, % pint (Ic.) flour, milk to make % gal.
