By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Folks: Along about the time our daf- 'odils and daisies bloom. . . so do all of our neighbors flowers, ive all have yellow daffodils and white daisies. Here's how I make mine dif- 'erent. I dye those pretty things! I cut them after the dew has eft and they are quite dry. Usually along about noon they will real thirsty for another drink. Don't give 'em just plain water. Take some of your food color- ng (the same kind you keep in your kitchen to color cakes and icings) and pour about a teaspoonful into an old fruit jar. Add a little dab of water. Not over two tablespoons. We only want the colored water to be about one-eighth of an inch deep. You will have a strong colored dye now. Cut the stems of the posies off straight.

Main Dunk Your Daffodils And Daisies In Dye flowers into this coloring. little dab of Forget 'em. In an hour or so you will begin to see them change. These may be left only an hour or so for light coloring or even as long as overnight for deep colors. (Children get such a thrill from watching the dye go up through the veins and tint the blossom. Most amazing thing you ever saw.) When the blossom reaches the desired color, rinse the bottom of the stems off (or you can snip that last half inch with snip- pers) and arrange as usual. For white flowers, any color or mixtures of coloring may be used. For yellow flowers, red coloring turns a beautiful orange and copper toned color. (Depending on how strong you make your color.) Blue coloring will turn a yellow flower pale green and char treuse. It is very beautiful if you have a bowl real full of daffodils to remove half of the flowers from the coloring within an hour arid leave the other half longer. Some will be darker than others. Two or three different colors o: flowers may be mixed together in one flower arrangement. I don't know of many kinds o flowers that cannot be dyed this way. Try it.

Dear Heloise: I have loved my nylon net dishcloth! I must share the new uses I have discovered for it. It is absolutely marvelous for scrubbing baked potatoes and cleaning out soap dishes. It is also wonderful when used with a good cleaner for getting crayon marks off walls (some of us do lave artistic off-spring!) Betsy Dear Gals: This woman means to go to your dime or department store and buy some nylon net, which will cost you approximately 39 cents a yard and it will be 72 inches wide. Cut this up and make your dishcloths. Some people use them single, others double them.

I let this dry flat. . . upside down. Now it does not curl anymore. I have a set of bookends that are not quite heavy enough to hold my strong books up so' I took a piece of elastic about one foot long and nailed it from the bottom of one bookend to the other. Now neither one can fall! Mrs. S. W.
