Carpeting In Kitchen Cabinet By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I went to my dime store and bought a four by six foot washable turquoise throw rug (the same color as my kitchen) and cut it in small pieces to fit the places in the kitchen cabinet where I set my pots and pans etc. Now then, my newly painted white kitchen cabinet shelves still have their lovely high gloss and not a scratch on them. Cuts down on the noise too. To clean, just pull the pieces of rug out, wash and dry and return to the shelf. They look very pretty . . . even when the doors are open. Mrs. F Real bright idea. Eh? And what's wrong with using an old bath mat until your budget and time allow v for a new carpet? One could buy carpet samples for this purpose too. After all, we don't have all the doors open at one time so they wouldn't even have to match! Heloise Dear Heloise: Sunday night supper or bedtime snacks in front of TV are fun in our home. With three youngsters, the rug and mommy's disposition are both in better shape since I bought a big plastic table cloth which has become standard equipment in our living room at snack time! The kids — and the snacks— Hints From Heloise both sit on the floor on the plastic cloth. After the snack, the younger kids take the dishes back to the kitchen while the eight year old grabs the corners of the cloth and carries the cloth, crumbs and drips, to be shaken and wiped off. Carol Letter of Laughter Dear Heloise: Never put a straw from a plastic broom into a cake to see if it is done. It will melt — the straw, that is, not the cake! Use a straw from an old-fashioned fibre broom instead. Mrs. Howard C. Hopper Dear Heloise: I find that a large plastic bag is much better to put wet diapers in rather than the compartment in the diaper bag. This way . . . there is no lingering odor in the diaper bag itself. True? Judy Mock Dear Heloise: To remove wall paper easily . . . my husband just soaks our paint roller in some hot water and detergent and then rolls it on the outside of the wallpaper with the paint roller. He only did small portions at a time. After thorough soaking, the paper came off in sheets by using our pancake turner! Imagine something so simple. I don't know what detergent has in it, but it sure took the wall paper off our walls! It is most necessary that this set at least 30 minutes before using the pancake turner to remove the paper so the mixture will have time to soak in completely. Wally Simpson Dear Heloise: For those who are stupid enough — and that is me! May I suggest that when they are getting ready to paint and when pouring paint from a can that they use a plastic milk carton which has been cut off with a knife? By golly, this is the best darned thing I've ever seen! Just throw it away afterwards. This sure saves washing out another container and it can be thrown away later. I have found that the plastic which is on the inside of the milk carton will allow all the paint to drop back in the original can. Lonnie R. Dear Heloise: Those who have decanters and the stopper is stuck might try applying a little olive oil around the neck and letting it set overnight. This has often removed our decanter stopper. It soaks down into the mouth of the jar. R.G.D. Dear Heloise: Did you ever use a child's little toy mop? It is wonderful for dusting tops of doors, window screens and any high places. And also along the top of the base boards. Saves energy, time and accidents, trying to reach dusty high places. M. G.

School Corridor Not Lovers Lane Dear Ann Landers: I always thought this country was a democracy but it is getting more like Russia every day. Yesterday our principal made a long-winded speech about boys and girls walking in the halls with their arms around each other's waists. What's so terrible about a couple who is going steady walking that way? Since when is it indecent or immpral to put your arms around somebody you love? The old fossil also said he Your Problems By Ann Landers didn't want to see any more fellows with blonde peroxide streaks in their hair. This is another step toward a dictatorship. A lot of the kids who go steady have matching streaks which is sort of a fad to let people know they belong to each other. Will you please take this up in your column if you are on our side. If you aren't on our side skip it.-LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL Dear Patrick Henry: Since you seem to favor freedom, I will express myself — even though I'm not on your side. Walking with arms around waists is out of place in school corridors. People who have respect for each other keep their hands to themselves in public. Genuine affection doesn't need an audience. Blond peroxide streaks for boys are revolting. I've seen some of these streaked characters and they resemble pole-cats. Dear Ann Landers: I was one of those foolish girls who fell for a guy's looks. He was the spitting image of Rory Calhoun and I thought I'd die from excitement whenever he smiled at me. I chased Bart for three years. I bought my own wedding ring and carried it in my purse until I caught him in a weak moment. A Justice of the Peace married us one night last January. Bart was so plastered he could hardly stand up through the ceremony. Now I'm pregnant. He comes home whenever he feels like it, which is anywhere from midnight to 3:00 a.m. He doesn't chase with women, he spends his time at his mother's house. She still treats him like a nine-year- old. I've begged him to stay home like a husband should but it's no use. Please tell me what to do. I'm ready to take the gas pipe. -SHERRY Dear Sherry: Get off your knees and stop acting like you're honored to have this jerk around. Insist that he go home to his mother until he's ready to come back and behave like an adult. And remind him to drop the support checks in the mail. If you doormat wives would get off the floor your husbands would have mre respect for you. Dear Am Landers: This is a touchy one. We need the. advice of someone who is not in the immediate family circle. A close relative has been studying with a professional and has become a sculptress. She presented our son and daughter-in- law with one of her favorite pieces as a wedding gift. The young couple know a good bit about art and they don't want to band feels they should not be use it in their home. My hus- pressured into it. I say the woman's feelings are at stake and it would be a crushing insult if they didn't use the piece of art. May we hear from you?-FAMILY WIREWORKS Dear Fireworks: It will not kill the couple to display the sculpture for a few weeks. It would be especially generous of them to have the piece displayed when the sculptress comes to call. Most people rotate art. They could easily rotate this particular piece to the attic after a few weeks. Are you going steady? Making marriage plans? If so, send for Ann Landers; booklet, "Before You Marry — Is It Love Or Sex?" enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

Mrs. Arthur Harris THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, April 27,19W SPECIAL BREADS — Mrs. Walter Licktcig, Grecley, bakes several kinds of special breads while she has her hands in ihe dough. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith). Her Family Likes Breads She Just Loves To Bake Miscellany L. M. S. One has only to get a preview of the Miss Ottawa pageant tt> f get enthusiastic about it. Since ' meeting the contestants at a tea Friday, we do not envy the jud-j ges their work of selecting one '' as Miss Ottawa. "Simply gorgeous" is the way;" to describe the sets for the pag- * eant, which Jack Day has had on the drawing board since July and in his basement in bits and pieces for some time. Really spectacular is the chandelier from ed of bands of expanding metal to which are attached more than 500 pendant prisms catching all colors of light and 40-some yards of plastic beading. Modernistic fish mobiles will 'feature in the set for modeling swim suits. Forming the background will ' be. some 80 yards of silver metal- '•' lio cloth and along the sides some ••• 80 yards of electric blue chiffon over blue sheeting. The "talent" set will feature abstract city skylines with blue satin streamers. The big crown from last year, six feet across, will be used again this year. Jack * says that Mr. and Mrs. Vern I Wadkins have worked right along '' with him. Jack's mother has * helped, too. We're a bit dizzy yet from the spectacle. If you are all con- • fused about how it is going to " look, that's fine. You will want •" to go both nights, May 3 and 4, * to see how it will really look. Have you more vegetable or flower seeds than you need to plant? If so, why not send them to Osawatomie State Hospital? If you prefer, you can leave them at the collection center, the Wassmer clothing store, where they will be picked up with magazines and other donations. From Kansas Teacher: The reason the average girl would rather have beauty than brains is that the average man can see better than he can think. Bread has been called the staff of life. It has its place on the table at every meal. Various forms of bread make good between • meals snacks, especially when there are children in the family. Mrs. Walter Lickteig, Greeley, likes to make different kinds of bread, and her husband and six children, five of them pre-school- ers, like to eat it. She laughingly says that kneading bread dough gives her a chance to work off her ire when the children get a bit difficult. "Turning out a good product each time is a challenge," she says. "My husband likes a crisp bread crust so, for him, I make French Bread." French Bread 2% c. warm water (105 to 115 degrees) 2 pkg. or cakes yeast 1 tbsp. salt 1 tbsp. melted margarine 7 c. unsifted flour cornmeal 1 egg white 1 tbsp. cold water Measure warm water into large warm mixing bowl. Sprinkle or crumble in yeast, stir until dissolved. Add salt and margarine. Add flour and stir until well blended — dough will be sticky. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover, let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about one hour. Turn onto lightly floured board. Divide into two portions. Roll each into an oblong 15 x 10 inches. Roll up tightly, seal edges by pinching them. Taper ends and place loaves on greased baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover, let rise about one hour. With razor or sharp knife make four diagonal cuts on top of each loaf. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. Brush with egg white mixed with cold water. Return to oven to bake five minutes longer. Another different and delicious bread is the following one which Mrs. Lickteig makes. Cinnamon Swirl Orange Bread 1 pkg. yeast !4 c. water 1 c. milk (scalded) Va c. sugar Vi c. shortening 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 c. powdered sugar 4 tsp. orange juice 1V& tsp. salt 1 tbsp. orange peel, shredded % c. orange juice GVa to 7 c. flour 1 egg, slightly beaten */2 c. sugar 1 tsp. orange peel Soften yeast in warm water. Combine milk, sugar, shortening, salt, orange peel and orange juice. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in 2 c. flour and beat until smooth. Stir in yeast and egg. EJeat well. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Turn onto [loured surface and knead till smooth, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning once. Cover and let rise until double, about 1V4 hours. Punch down and divide dough into two parts. Let rest 10 minutes. Roll each half inch thick. Combine sugar and cinnamon and spread with 1 tps. water. Itoll and seal edge. Place sealed edge down in greased pan R x 4 x S inches. Cover and let rise until double, about one hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Frost with mixed powdered sugar, orange peel and orange juice icing. Mrs. Lickteig says that a trick she uses to make doughnuts taste extra-special is to ice them with icing made with powdered sugar, dash of salt, coffee and vanilla. One can use instant coffee dissolved in water. This cook says her sister-in-law gave her the recipe for coffee swirl. It makes a nice soft roll that comes up fast. Coffee Swirl 1 c. water or milk Vi c. butter or shortening Vi c. sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 pkg. yeast V4 c. water 1 egg, beaten 4 c. flour Mix yeast in warm water. Set aside. Mix warm water or scalded milk, sugar, butter and salt. Cool. Add egg then add yeast. Beat in flour until smooth. Let rise until double in bulk. Roll out and spread with sugar and cinnamon. Dot with butter. Roll up and slice. Bake at 350 degrees Sewing Machine Service experience Albright's for 20 to 25 minutes. Ice with powdered sugar icing. Mrs. Lickteig is not sure of the name of the following salad which is popular with members of her own family of five brothers and five sisters and with her husband's family which included 30 brothers and sisters. Needless .0 say the women enjoy exchanging recipes and one of Mrs. Lickteig's sisters gave her this one. We might call it Citrus Salad. Citrus Salad 2 pkg. orange jello V* to Vz c. sugar, according to taste Grapefruit and mandarin orange sections. Dissolve the jello in 2 c. boiling water. Add juice from the fruits with water if necessary to make 2 c. Put fruit sections into the jello and refrigerate to scf. If the salad is to be served in slices, it will hold up better if the liquid is reduced by about 'A. c. Flavoring Tip You can give shredded coconut delightful flavor by mixing it with grated orange or lemon rind. Use the flavored coconut to garnish a fluffy frosting atop cup cakes. Group Visits VA Hospital VFW Post and Auxiliary members making a trip to Wadsworth VA Hospital last evening were Mr. and Mrs. Garland Hinkle, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Sowers, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Louderback, Mrs. Bob Robinson and Mrs, Frank Lehew.
