(Herald Photos by Lois Smith) SORORITY OFFICIALS — Miss Dorothy Btker, president of Beta Sigma Phi city council (left), presided at the 32nd anniversary Founders Day dinner last evening. Miss Juanita Brungardt, staff member in the national office in Kansas Cty, was guest speaker. Founders Day Dinner Marks Beta Sigma Phi Anniversary Guest speaker for the 3-chapter Beta Sigma Phi Founders Day dinner last evening in North American Hotel was Juanita Brungardt from the sorority national headquarters in Kansas City. Miss Brungardt is editor of "The Torch," official magazine of the organization. She was introduced by Mrs. Le Roy Teter. Miss Brungardt pointed out the need for people to form a phi- losphy of life to sustain them in times of stress, telling that material possessions are no longer a satisfactory main aim of existence. The speaker told a little of Mrs. Tern,' who wrote most of the sorority's rituals and programs, and who liked to ask of people, "Who Are You?" "The question was a bit startling," Miss Brungardt recalled. "Mrs. Terry insisted on nouns rather than adjectives. It is a question that each of us should ask ourselves to clarify our beliefs." The sorority official pointed out that Beta Sigma Phi members are girls who have ambitions, who are "going some place," and are willing to take time to understand themselves and their aims. Miss Dorothy Baker, president of the sorority city council, presided. The program began with singing of the national anthem led by Beverly Hjorth with ac- companiment by Doris Hjorth. Mrs. Teter led in the opening ritual and Mrs. James Rodgers gave the grace. Miss Baker welcomed the pledges and Mrs. John Jones gave a summary of chapter activities. Named as Girl of the Year for the chapters were: Omega, Mrs. Teter; Omicron, Mrs. Don McKelvey; and Exemplar, Mrs. Milton Jameson. Sylvia Provencal, sorority's Miss Ottawa candidate, was introduced. Miss Baker read the message from the founder, Walter W. Ross. He mentioned the three symbols of the sorority, "Life, DO YOU WANT TO REGISTER WITH THE NUMBER ONE GIRL? Learning and Friendship," and referred to the organization as an "intellectual democracy." There are now 150,000 members in the 7,000 chapters over the world. Mrs. Duane Hall sang, "T h e Torch Ijghts the way," accompanied by Mrs. Teter. Mrs. Jones led the closing ritual. Exemplar Chapter was in charge of decorations which included an arrangement of yellow roses, and candles. Each program booklet was topped by a yellow rose, the sorority flower. Omicron Chapter arranged the program assisted by Omega Chapter.

For those who like to grow their own important plants . . . start your own seed box. Take a milk carton—either pa- jer or plastic, but I find plastic jest—and tape the top where the milk pours out with tape. Lay the cartor. down sideways. Take your wife's sharpest knife and cut out one side of the box. (I found that if you leave a little edge that it re-inforces the carton. Heloise) Fill the bottom of the box with your favorite residuals such as rocks, sand etc. and then put your favorite soil on top of this. Take your wife's favorite kitchen fork (I found her big cold meat fork was best!) and "plow" the top of the sifted soil about one-half inch deep. Sprinkle your seeds across this plowed surface. Gently smooth the soil. Take your wife's salt shaker and fill it with water. . . after rinsing out the salt of course! The salt shaker is wonderful when used to water these tender seeds with. This allows the dirt not to become hardened when trying to grow tiny seeds. This is most important. These plants may be beautifully transplanted. When seeds are grown this way, they may be started earlier than usual and can also be grown in kitchen windows and later the box maybe put outside the back door or placed in a flower bed to get them used to the climate before transplanting. Joseph S. Dear Heloise: I tear — never cut salad greens — and after washing gently place them in a large salad )owl on a layer of damp paper oweling. Cover the greens with a double layer of dry paper towel- ng upon which you have placed six to eight ice cubes. Set aside n the coldest part of the refrigerator for at least one hour. When ready to use the greens are crisp and crunchy. The pa- Hints From Heloise ?er towels will catch most of the ce water. B.L. 3ear Heloise: After the plastic ends come off he children's shoe laces, I bread them through the hole again and tie a knot so the frayed ends cannot slip back out Jirough the holes again. Saves rethreading next day etc. When making Uie children's beds, I put the length of the sheets and blankets cross-wise on heir beds. They need not be rucked in at the feet and this gives me much more room to uck in on each side. Helps keep the children from jetting uncovered and also from 'ailing out of bed! (Children are FO small their feet never come to the end of the bed like grown Color Patents: White Red Yellow Nude Blue Black O'Connor's Shoes 205 S. Main persons so why waste all that sheet on the tuck-under at the bottom?) G.G. Dear Helnise: In my new home I have a closet door and a front door that opens the same way. The closet door always seems to be open so that when I enter the room. . . "bang". . . a new scratch on either one door or the other, from the door knobs. My mother was visiting here recently and she bought some heavy yard (the color matches the room) and crotcheted a round ball to fit over the door knob! One could put elastic through the yarn but I just "use a rubber band to hold it on. This might work beautifully for those who have doors which bang against walls and so forth. It sure saves my doors. We now have one knitted "hood" on each door knob. Mrs. L. E. Edmonds Letter of Laughter Dear Heloise: I am a widow who cleans up offices. . . after hours. I have worked in this building 20 years. There are some executives who do not like their desk disturbed. A feather duster just -will not take those cigar and cigarette butts off the desk. I have found that you can remove the cleaning gadget from the end of the vacuum cleaner and hold it slightly BOYER'S JEWELRY has what the young folks want for Graduation above the desk and it will suck up all of these executive ashes which they get on their papers. One must be very careful to hold the suction cup high enough so as not to suck up any paper! Or hold your hand on the stack of papers while doing it. Another thing. . . you can put the suction hole directly into the ashtray and it will suck up butts and all. As a suggestion to tired housewives why can't they use this to clean cluttered shelves? Annie the Maid And just why couldn't they? did! It works beautifully. Heloise DAIRY QUEEN Now Has Fresh Lime SLUSH also Orange - Grape - Cherry Try It Now!
