Stock A Fallout Shelter In observance of Home Demonstration week members of the Progressive HDU constructed a display in the window of Paine's Bootery. The members of the committee working on this project were Mrs. John Okerberg, Mrs. Lewis Spencer, Mrs. Robert Bundy, and Mrs. Myron Steere; The purpose of this display is to inform the public of the necessities that should be included in a fallout shelter. The supplies in this window display were planned in accordance to the needs, of a 4-member family, consisting of two adults and two young children. Every family should know: 1. Where to find safe water. 2. How to turn off water service valve. 3. How to purify water. 4. What foods to store and how to prepare them. 5. What foods are unsafe. 8. How to dispose of garbage. 7. How to dispose of human wastes. 8. How to make -soil bags. 9. What to do with frozen foods. The National plan calls for a minimum 14-day supply of food and water, since except for very brief departures from the shelter, one could be kept in the shelter for longer than two weeks. As the radiation clouds pass over and the radiation count goes down, persons.may leave the shelter for longer periods of time ^Tn'ml 1; Flashlight and extra bat ' °. ffice or from John Weidmann > also placed a Family Radiation na,..,+;,«, *~> « _i • i,' , ,. tenes. civil defense director, of Franklin Measurement Kit TnflnHtwl in «i;= paration for a stay in the shelter one should have on hand: Wesleyan Guild Tea On Quilt Theme "Quilting" was the theme of a spring tea given by Wesleyan Service Guild yesterday at Trinity Methodist Church.

(Across from Ford Garage) Remove Stains With Kerosene By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Please tell me how to remove shoe polish and heel marks and ball point ink from my Nauga- hyde sofa? A Reader Dear Readers: This question has come in many, many times. Finally Mrs. Leeson sent us the answer. The suggested cleaning methods for these stains are: Shoe polish and heel marks (including paint) should be removed immediately. Do not use paint remover or liquid type brush cleaners. Use a white cloth, dampened with kerosene (and dear gals there's our old country kerosene again!) painters naptha, or turpentine. Care must be exercised to keep these fluids from contact with soft fabric or with wooden areas of the furniture. Ball point ink may sometimes be removed if rubbed immediately with a damp cloth using water or rubbing alcohol. (And gals . . there's our old cheap rubbing alcohol. . . again!) Heloise Dear Heloise: Here's a tip for those who use velvet ribbons or bows etc. When you prepare velvet ribbon for cutting . . .run a brush full of colorless nail polish across the ends and after it drys take your scissors and cut through the "Polished" part. You will have smooth edges that will never fray or ravel or curl up! Red polish even absorbs into black velvet and does not show the red color. Ona Kelly I tried it on black velvet and it does not show. Heloise Dear Heloise: When I bought your new book at my local department store the book department suggested that it be wrapped with a bottle of vinegar as decoration! Needless to say I was pleased no end. The book is wonderful. Mrs. Bush Etheridge And you better believe it. If I owned a vinegar company, I would have given you a free bottle! Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: When I ice a cake with pow dered sugar-icing I always make a little exrla icing. Especially the chocolate kind! After icing the cake. .. I always throw a little cereal in the pan, with the extra icing and stir Hints From Heloise it with a spoon and dip this out by spoonsful and lay each dab on a sheet of wax paper. Make wonderful lid-bits! The kids just love them. There is no extra pan to clean as the pan is already in need of washing and these little drop crunchies suffice for the nights that I do not have dessert. P.R. Dcnr Friends: When you do this. . . if you will add a spoonful of peanut butler (crunchy types are terrif) you will have something quite, different and really perk. Try it. You have nothing to lose. A spoonful of peanut butter and a THE OTTAWA HERALD 6 Wednesday, May 1, 1963 * bowl of cereal? Use it. Saves time later. ; Heloise Dear Heloise: When I buy a box of soap filled pads I take my scissors and cut them in fourths. I do an entire box at one time. A fourth of a pad is just enough to clean one or two pots or pans. I find this much better than using the whole pad at a time as it is too much waste. Besides, you will never have any rust. H. C. Loiter of Laughter Dear Heloise: I would walk a mile to buy groceries at any store that would sack them in colored bagsl Don't grocers realize how pretty it would be for us to have a pink or green paper bag in the garbage pail! Do you reckon that anybody would buy that? Devotedly yours I like the idea. I can imagine that some grocer will try it after reading this column. Isn't life wonderful?
