Nudists Pick Site LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)—More than 1,500 nudists, representing every state but Alaska, will flock to Sycamore Hollow flu's summer for two large sunbathing conventions. The Midwest Sunbathing Association will hold its annual convention at the camp five miles west of Lawrence July 31-Aug. 4. The international convention of the American Sunbathing Association will be Aug. 7-11, also at the Hollow. Albert Adams, manager of the camp, said several nations, including Germany, France and Japan, will be represented. How are the townspeople reacting? 'They're getting used to it," Adams said. "Nudism is much more common than it was a few years ago. In fact, we have several members from Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City. A special attraction of the ASA meeting will be a nudist play, "Barely Proper." It will be presented by the Pacificans Club of California, some members of which are professional actors, Adams said. "We're sending out some invitations to leading townspeople in Lawrence for the show," he said. "I've talked to a few and they've all said they would enjoy coming out for it. It will be by invitation only." The 100-acre camp offers bowling, swiming, dancing, volley ball, tennis and shuffleboard. Facilities even include an airstrip.

Phont CH 2-4700 An Air Age Business Woman INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP)— Eleven times a grandmother and right handy as a cook, Mrs. A. doesn't look like what she .is—an air age business woman. Owner of a-private airport which she built on her family farm and of 75 single-engine planes based there, she is completing nearly two decades of oprating an aviation ground school, renting planes and operating hangers and repair shops. Formally, she is Mrs. Vesta Ailshire and she refuses to give her age. To friends and customers she's Mrs. A. She goes about her business wearing high heels, jewelry and dresses — no blue jeans or similar masculine-type attire. Daily she bakes cakes and doughnuts for sale in the lunchroom at her Independence Memorial Airport. At 1he training school, she interrupts classes each Tuesday and Thursday nights to serve coffee and sweets. "They brag on me so much," she says, "I just have to serve the guys and get up early to bake." Here's How To Clean Dirty Shower Curtain By IIELOISE CRUSE Dear Hcloisc: Just how do I clean a really dirty shower curtain? I also have mildew on the bottom of the curtain. Disgusted Dear Disgusted: Here's our answer and we have tested nearly everything: Put your shower curtain in a washing machine A.dd two white terry-cloth bath towels. (And it "ain't" going to work without the towels so pick two up and throw them in.) Fill your machine with hot water (and it should be at least 140 degrees according to all t h e home economists that write to us.) Add one-third cup of household bleach, one-third cup of amonia and not more than one-third cup of detergent. (Read directions on dde of detergent package). Let curtain run through the entire cycle of the machine. Fill machine again with hot water and run through entire cycle again and when it gets to "rinse" add one cup of vinegar. Do not rinse the vinegar out. If you have a thick hem on the shower curtain, take your pinking sheers and cut it off. Most mildew starts here as the water accumulates in the hem. If your curtain is very expensive and you don't want to cut the hem off. . . did you know that you could hang it. wrong-side-out so the fold in the hem would be on the outside and then the water would drip on into the tub instead of accumulating there? Why manufacturers don't hem the bottom edge in the opposite direction. . . amazes me! Hcloisc Dear Hcloisc: Those really fabulous nylon dish rags you told us to make from nylon net which we buy at our dime stores. . . I give to everybody. 1 even sewed two of them together and put a string through the top to make a bag for my baby's bath toys. It works beautifully! Hang the bag on the faucet by its string so the toys will drip dry. Sally Savor Dear Heloise: Why do draperies rot on one side? The rest of my draperies are perfectly good. Peggy Froman Dear Peggy: Draperies and curtains should be interchanged. . . frequently. This means. . . remove the draperies and curtains from one window and pu* them on the other side of the room if at all possible. Hints From Heloise Exposure to the sunlight rot the drapery, especially if it comes through a window - pane. (Or, take the drape or curtain from the left-hand-side of the window and hang it on the right-hand- side.) By changing the draperies you are prolonging the life of the one which you have removed from the window. This way they will all "give-out" at the same time. When you do your spring and fall house - cleaning, vacuum or put your draperies in your dryer — without heat and tumble them awhile. This will remove most of the dust. And remember draperies and curtains must be dry cleaned and washed once in a while to prevent further rot and deterioration. Heloise Dear Heloise: This is for mothers who use the LTL Meeting In Trinity The Northside Loyal Temperance Legion met yesterday at Trinity Methodist Church. The president, Barbara Stipp, gave the call to worship, and the j chaplain, Elaine Ingle, read the Scripture lesson. Directing group singing were John McCready and Richard McFadden, with Mrs. A. E. Sullins at the piano. Salutes to the three flags were led by Donna Hulcy. Debra and Linda Bartlett. Members gave their LTL pledge j and salute in unison. Mrs. Mary Black told the story, "Picnic Time Troubles." In the LTL rocket ship project, each member may "build" his rocket ship as lie earns certain ratings. The following five members have achieved the rank of technician: Marilyn Wright, Linda Bartlett, Elaine Ingle, Debra Bartlett and Barbara Stipp. They were awarded the green ribbon badge and permitted to "build" the fins and nozzle of their rocket ships. It was voted to have a cookie sale on May 4, the money to be used to pay for subscriptions to the magazine, "The Young Crusader," and for the World Friendship project. Marilyn Wright Save the closing prayer. Cindy Durbin and Margaret McCready served cookies. Last Sunday the legion observed Youth Temperance Education Week by attending church services at Trinity in a group. new disposal baby bottles: Recently we took a trip with our small baby. As we were travel- ling by car, I was concerned as to how to warm his bottle without stopping at restaurants. I finally decided to fill a wide mouth thermos bottle, with boiling water. When feeding time came I removed the lid of the thermos, and put the bottle down in the hot water. It worked beautifully! I have also tried using hot water front a faucet but it did < seem to stay as hot as the water I boiled on the stove. Another thing. . . fill it only about half full. Then when the baby's bottle is set down inside it will not overflow. M. Reddington Dear Heloise: With a house full of children, I get pretty disgusted when their tricycles and toys hit the edge of my furniture. I have scratches all over the house, from one kid to the next. Here's how I solved my problem: The other day I went to my dime store and bought a box of crayons. I took the black crayon and went over every scratch on my black furniture. With the mahogany furniture I used the dark brown crayon. After this I rubbed and buffed (he marks thoroughly with a dry piece of towel. The wax from the crayon fills up the scratch and allows it to become unnoticable. I find this much better than iodine. P. A. Dear Heloise: A word of warning to your readers who use a rust remover: I ruined my white precelain drainboard on the top of my white porcelain stove. The company should warn users what it will do besides taking off rust stains. In the short time that I had some things piled on my porcelain table top and drainboard which were being de-rusted . . . the chemical ate down into the procelain and nothing will bring back the original finish. I was sick! Warn people to keep these types of removers away from good finishes and drop any article being de-rusted into a tub of rinse water right away. E.
