Baking Soda Magic "Scouring Powder 55 By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I clean the glass door of my oven by dipping a washcloth in baking soda. I use this as one would ordinarily use a scouring powder. Wet the cloth and wring it out throughly, then dip in the soda. Scrub in rotary motion over the carbon spots. Works like a magic wand. O.S.M. Dear Heloise: 1 just must save anyway I can. We cook many things in double broilers. Utilize the heat when using the bottom part. If you have boiled potatoes or carrots in the bottom, wait until they are nearly done and then put peas (they only need to be heated) in the top part. Slap on the lid and use that burner to kill two birds at the same time. Saves heat and you only have to wash Hints From Heloise one lid. Also, while cooking carrots in the bottom part, you can make cream sauce in the top. Pour the sauce into the carrots. Saves time and heat. , Winifred Dear Heloise: For those who have old whisk brooms. . . may I suggest that they wash them in a good detergent and rinse them well.

The convention held the concluding session today. still wet, take a pair of scissors and cut them into a "V" shape. This homemade gadget is wonderful for cleaning many corners especially when it comes to wall- to-wall carpets where a vacuum cleaner ordinarily does not reach. Great too for cleaning car seats. You will be surprised how much dirt they will get out of the average corner which is seldom thoroughly cleaned. Salem Me Donald Dear Heloise: I am 73 years old. For years I have used hobnail bed spreads. Once in a while one of these little devils (the hob part) will come loose and you will think your bedspread is ruined. . . but it isn't. Instead of getting your neigh bor gossip with "Gee, look at that tuft missing!," get a big embroidery needle, (a petit poinl needle will do too) and thread it with two strands of matching thread and just pull it through the place where the tuft is missing four or five times. Cut the threads in two. . . and "tramp* the new tuft to match the others Marcia Lapiduss Dear Heloise: If y9U have a tea kettle which has been used for boiling water and you don't have quite enough water to finish filling those coffee cups for instant coffee. . . don't open the lid of the kettle to refill it. This causes many a bad burn. If you need one more cup o! water. . . hold the kettle under the hot water faucet and allow the stream of water to flow into the kettle through its spout. Thi way, you hand will never gel burnedi Samuel Fellowship Observation Is Friday Ottawa Council of United Church Women observed May Fellowship Day with a coffee Friday morning in the Church of the Brethren.

S. It doesn't seem like a year since last year's delightful Ottawa High School journalists helped in this department as in other sections of the editorial department. On Wednesday i t was just as pleasurable an. experience to have members of this year's class. We have only compliments for Kerri Pound and Nancy Burling lam who did the writing in this department. There's no need to worry about the future of women's departmenst with so many ef- icient girls interested in this ype of work.

Philip A. Hart, the Michigan senator sponsoring the truth-in packaging bill, says he will ask the FDA to set a standard for the number of cherries in frozen pies. One eight-inch pie he purchased had only 40 cherries in it. Similar pies sold in the Senate restaurant have 108 cherries, he said. FDA gave manufacturers another extension of time to provide proof that 37 food additives are safe. The chemicals are all components of paper and paperboard used for food packaging.

Dear Ann Landers: Shortly after I left home lo join my husband who is in the armed services, I received a telephone call from my dad telling me that he and mother had separated. This was over two years ago. My mother has yet to mention it, although she writes to me of- Your Problems By Ann Landers len and we have spoken on the telephone many times. She is obviously so bitter and unhappy about the separation that she cannot bring herself to speak of it. My brother who is 17 told me mother made him choose between her and did. He chose her She will not permit him to mention dad's name in the house- much less see him. When I get home I'm sure I will be faced with the same choice. I am dreading this because I love them both. My mother has a will of iron and she's impossible to reason with. Please tell me what to do.—RIGHT SQUARE IN THE MIDDLE Dear Midilly: The unhappy relationship between your parents is not of your making and you shouldn't be punished for it. The parent who imposes such a choice on a child deserves to be the one who is left out. If your mother insists that you choose between her and your .father- choose your father. Dear Ann Landers: I'm not the prettiest girl in the world — or the smartest. I'm 28 years old, have a responsible position and have supported myself since I was 18. Life was uncomplicated (and also unexciting) until I met Warren. Warren is a college graduate and he sells insurance. I haven't gone with anyone else for six months so you might say he is my steady. He has hinted strongly about marriage but ha,s never proposed. Now I'm nol sure I'd accept. This is why I'm writing. Twice in the last three months Warren has lost his temper and slapped my face. Both times he insisted the slaps were "nothing personal" — that this is the way he expresses himself when he gets angry. He said "Any psychologist will tell you it is a healthy outlet for the emotions." I've never studied psychology so I'm in no position to dispute his word; Can you advise me?— LITTLE EVA Dear Eva: The "outlet" may be good for his health but I can't see that it does much for yours. If a klop in the chops is Warren's way of "expressing himself" during courtship, you can guess what kind of expression you'll get after marriage. Flee this man as you would the plague. Civilized people don't slap faces. Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary next month. Many of our friends and relatives have offered to give parties for us but my husband and I would prefer to entertain them rather than have them entertain us. I am not being avaricious — ust practical - when I tell you know we will receive many ovely gifts. Since this will be .he silver anniversary I can see t now — silver platters, silver dishes, silver ash trays, candle^ stick holders, candy dishes, ciga* •ette boxes. The list is endless. All silver means to me is hours of polishing and I dread the 'nought of it. Would it be improper if I wrote on the invitations "No Silver Please." Thank you. — THE BIG 25 Dear Big: It would be in poor .aslc to write such a message on the invitation, No reference to a ;ift should be made on any in- vitalion. You may pass the word quiet- y among your close friends that you don't wnnt silver, but don't make a mass production type of- announcement, please. Does almost everyone have a ;ood time but you? If so, send: r or Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped invclope.
