Table Coffee Mill Is Smallest Type Hints from Heloise Dear Heloise: I 'm sure a spaghetti dinner is as much a favorite with other families as it is around our house. Tile only thing that upset me was watching each member of the family struggle to get the spaghetti from the bowl to the plate. Tonight I used pla9tic salad tongs and they worked like a charm It not only was a time saver, but not one strand of spa- ghett) slipped away Louise BeU Now aren't one! Hsloise you the clever Dear Heloise: We run pole - type green beans up over our carport. They make wonderful shade and the beans are handy all summer Mrs. Donald R. Barber Dear Heloise: If you are trying to type on a postcard but find it hard to • get the card to roll around the typewriter carriage because of the stiffness" of the card, try rolling it through with a piece of regular typing paper behind it. Then you will have no more trouble. It will roll right through. Mrs. Lois Williams By DOROTHY HAMMOND QUESTION: Would you be so kind as to give what data you can on this old coffee-urn, or perhaps I should have said "coffee mill." It stands 12 inches high. Around the ledge above the drawer, are the words "Enterprise Mfg. Co., P h i I a- delphia" (embossed). And printed on the door is "No. 1." There are several interesting ornamental decals decorating this coffee mill, which are in gold, with a flag or shield, which of course is in red, white and blue. On the front are two medallions about the size of a dollar, overlapping. One has a design of a lady seated, holding out her . hand. The other, somewhat illegible, reads "National Exhibition." Mrs. F.K.B. ANSWER: Your table top coffee mill is shown in hardware catalogs, dating around 1910, and this model is the smallest type made by Enterprise. It originally sold for |2.25. The Enterprise Co. was a leading maker of coffee grinders from the last quarter of the nineteenth century, well into the present century. QUESTION: We have been given a handsome old coffee service. I like this set very much, but located on each finial is a disc shaped piece of ebony. So — today I took the coffee pot, tea pot and sugar, to my jeweler to have these pieces removed — and he advised me not to have these hideous black pieces removed. He also went on to say that such ornamentation is found on many pieces of old silver. Could I please have your opinion. Mrs. T.E. ANSWER: The information you were given is correct, and I am in complete agreement with your jeweler. QUESTION: When cleaning out an old chest, I came across a glass candy container that belonged to our son at least 40 years ago. It is in the shape of a duck, sitting on a nest. There is a small cap (must be tin) over the closure. Does this oddity have any value? Mrs. S.O. ANSWER: Old glass candy containers are of interest to collectors, and if the one that you have described is perfect, its value would be about $15 to $20. QUESTION: I am interested in knowing the value of a 1912 Calendar Plate that is 9 '/2 inches in diameter. It is decorated with large colorful fruit and flowers with the latter surrounding the calendar. Mrs. R.M. Sr. ANSWER: The value of a 1912 Calendar plate is about $25. QUESTION: I have a beautiful water pitcher and two tumblers, signed "Tuthill." The pattern is intaglio grape and rated best quality and highest price range in Dorothy Pearson's No. 2 book on cut glass. Would you kindly tell me the current value of these pieces? Mrs. J.D. ANSWER: Tuthill pieces are extremely popular among collectors of cut glass, thus values continue to soar upward. Prices for water pitchers start around $300 and go upward, while the starting price for a tumbler is about $80. QUESTION: Unfortunately, my husband broke our large Francis ware fruit bowl, while washing it. Can you give us some idea of the value of the remaining six sauce, or fruit dishes. They are perfect. Mrs. S.L. ANSWER: Your small dishes in this pattern are worth about $22.50 each.

Distinct Speech Style to Child By ISRAEL SHENKER [proved to be "a language of child posed a brief question, to 1971 N.Y . Times News service socialization," telling the chil- the mother made an extended BOSTON — Researchers I dren what to do. what to think Dear HeloiM: Everytime we needed the can opener it would always be in the bottom of the box of camping supplies or lost somewhere in the car or the tent. We discovered that if you put your can openers on a brightly ,colorerl piece of ribbon or yarn and tie it to the tent or car, you will always know where to find it. Linda and Dianne Dear Heloise: Have you ever tried knitting on toothpicks? I noticed the round toothpicks are shaped just like the needles which you use If you are knitting on four needles. They are especially good for making teen-doll clothes where you need four needles and the regular ones are too large. These toothpicks could be finished with lacquer to make them smoother. Mrs. Charles Slover studying child language have usually turned a deaf ear to the way adults speak to the children. So did Dr. Jean Berko Gleason and Dr. Elliot G. Mishler, of the laboratory in social psychiatry of the Harvard Medical School, when they began their own study among upper-middle- class people much like themselves living in the Boston area. Distinctive Speech Style But gradually the two social psychologists realized that the parents had a speech style as distinctive as the children's. and how to feel. ''Implied imperatives abounded," explained D r. Berko Gleason. "A motbtr might say to her child: 'Do you want to take your own plate off the table, Sweetie?' where the child really had no option in the matter. Dinner table talk was rife with outright instructions about sitting up and not throwing forks." The researchers found that parents struggled through laborious stratagems, including dramatic exaggeration and conversations with children in which the parents were really talking to themselves. As exnected, adults used baby talk to babies. Dear Heloise: Whenever I buy new clothing, I take an equal amount from my wardrobe and send it to an agency which distributes to the needy -both at home and overseas. I first clean amd mend the garments — then fold them into plastic bags. Sometimes I buy an inexpensive cotton slip, etc. to outfit a dress I am sending away. I make sure each item is a needed article and one that is still in real good shape. Dr. Berko Gleason observed: "Parents raised the frequency of their voices, used short sentences with concrete nouns diminutives and terms of endearment, and expanded the children's utterances. "One mother spoke in a nor mal voice to h e r husband, a slightly raised voice to har 8 year-old, a high voice to her 4- year-old, and when she talked to her baby she fairly squeaked." As Dr. Berko Gleason, in an interview here, reported this shift of registers, she raised her own voice in imitation until it, too, fairly squeaked. Baby boys were addressed by their fathers in what Dr. Berko Gleason called "a sort of hail- baby well-met style." "While turning them upside This has been my "fun" hobby for years. Mrs. A.H.S. All I can say is, you're doll! And God bles9 you! Heloise em «ff Tl» JMCMNM New* Box N*. tftV MrtcfctoM* KM.) w down," she said, "the fathers said things like, 'come here, you little nut', or, 'hey, Fruit cake.' Baby girls were dealt with more gently, both physically and verbally." Language of Socialization Speech addressed to children between the ages of 4 and 8 Parents spelled out explicite- ly the dangers they themselves had imposed. A mother placing food in front of her child would say "hot, hot." Gradually the two researchers discovered something that was fairly shouting to be heard: parents typically supplied the entire context of many conversations. "If they asked a question, they included with it the answer," noted Dr. Berko Gleason. "We have for instance the following: a father comes to pick up his son at nursery school and says, 'Where's your lunchbox? I bet it's inside.' " Or the following conversation between mother and 5-year-old son: "How was school today? Did you go to assembly?" "Yes." "Did you have a nice assembly?" "Yes." "Did the pre-schoolers go to the assembly?" "Yes." ' "Did you stay for t h e whole assembly or just part of it?" At this point in her report, Dr. Berko Gleason was content to say "et cetera." Conversation By Herself "The child really does not have to do anything b u t say yes or no," Mishler noted. "Attempting to teach her child how to have a conversation, the mother is having the whole con' versation by herself." reply that provided context and interpretation, just as she had done when she was theoretically posing the questions. Equally characteristic In adult rhetoric was exaggeration of response. A child in nursery school fills a bucket with a hose. Teacher says, "Hey, wow, that's almost full to the top!" A child shows his mother old toys he has been given by another child. The mother whoops with joy. A child shows his father a crude wooden truck he has made. Father says, "Hey that's really something, isn't it?" To a neighbor's boy who had been to the circus, Dr. Berko Gleason found herself saying, "Bov, that must have been fun!"—"and I don't even like the circus." she noted. "Since full buckets, old toys, crude models and circuses don't really impress adults that much, they must be telling; the child how he ought to feel," suggested Dr. Berko Gleason. Mishler identified a class of words — gee, boy and gosh, for example — that adults use in conversation with children, not with each other.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: I re member when girls owned one Sunday dress and one pair of good shoes that were soled and resoled until the upper gave out. There were no "teen-agers.' (That word was invented 30 years ago.) The transition from childhood to adulthood was not made easy with fads and fun. Young apprentices worked a 48-hour week for a modest sum and when they finished they had a lifetime trade. sugar and spice and thing thrice. every- Today's youth has been petted, pampered, plied with toys, bikes, transistors, cars, boutique fashions and spending money. They are over- schooled and underworked. Despite the boom that resounds from nationwide rock festivals, they are grossly out of tune. They know little of good music or literature or poetry. Their enemy is affluence — not the hard-core wealth of the very rich, but the bountiful paycheck of the middle-class. They wallow in When the fun of youth fades and the years pile up, when indulgent parents are gone, what resources will be theirs? What inner strength to draw on in time of crises? What gifts to give the world? What legacy to leave to those yet unborn? True, elders have criticized "hopeless, frivolous" youth throughout the ages, and the world has gone on, but has any generation ever had so much for so little, in a world lived in by so many?—Musty Reader DEAR MUSTY: You raise some provocative questions. Does anyone out there have answers? I'd like to see them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm 22, single, female, no runaround. I work for a large company — about 1,000 em­ ployes. The cafeteria is pleasant and I eat there every day. I'm a friendly person and say hello to dozens of people whose names I don't know. Saturday I was shopping downtown. A cloudburst hit as I was waiting for a bus. A familiar face from the cafeteria pulled up in a nice car and asked if I'd like a lift. I said, "Sure," and hopped in. When I got home Mom was on the front porch. She saw me get out of the car and asked who the man was. I told her I didn't know his name. She blew her cork — lectured me for 15 minutes about the dangers of riding with strangers. She almost called me a pickup. When dad came home she told him, and I got more of the same. Were they wrong? Please settle this.—Akron Passenger DEAR AK: Yup, they were wrong. The man was not a stranger. He was a familiar face from the cafeteria. But why didn't you get his name when he gave you a ride? It would be nice to greet him personally, between the macaroni and the chipped beef. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Does a landlady have the legal right to enter the apartments of her love is Can't Put Mistakes Down to Experience The researchers found that parents often persist in addressing, say, 8-year-olds with t h e speech common at 4, much to the dismay of the children. Indeed, as Mishler concluded, it is actually because of signals from the child, often very explicit and angry signals, that the adult ceases to address him as if he were very little. QUOTABLE WOMEN By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Some quotable quotes from women during the week: "You are only vulnerable in that there are too few of you, 26 against 630 men at present. You can't write mistakes down to experience quite as men can."—Margaret Hilda Thatcher, British secretary of state for education and science, speaking of woman's place in the House of Commons. Loves Two Men Mishler found that when a "Of course," be conceded, "some parents never do seem to understand the angry signals and continue telling their children to wash behind the ears until they are 35." The researchers are not sure why this should be so, but after nine months of listening, they are keeping their ears open. "I have always been in love with two men at the same time. The man and my father, or the man and my son. I take care of my man and my son the same way; the only difference comes down to the sleeping hours."— Actress Luciana Paluzzi, in an interview. All-Embracing •'If acting is what you want, what you need, what you are, there !s a tendency for it to be all-embracing, so you find it hard to have a life of great harmony."—Actress Genevieve Bujold, in an interview. Not A Painter "I've never liked to paint ... I don't care about politics. I don't live in reality, really."— Poloma Picasso, daughter of artist Pablo Picasso, who is a jewelry designer. No Real Values "The insane hunger for bad shows and bad toys is the problem. It's because we are not giving oiir children the real values they need for growing up."—Eda Leshan, moderator of "How Do Your Children Grow" on public television, speaking of children's TV programming. . . . trimming his beard but not too much. tenants when they are at work or away on vacation? None of us has anything of great value —nor do we have anything to hide—but the idea that this old battle-axe can come in whenever she feels like it and rummage around in the bureau drawers, desk papers, clothes closets (not to mention refrigerator), makes us mad. We don't want to move, so don't suggest it. The location is ideal and the price is right What do you say?—The Triplets DEAR TRIP: The landlady has the legal right to have a key to your apartment in case of emergency—(fire, flood, etc.) but she has no right to enter unless there is an emergency. Some leases say so. If yours doesn't, perhaps it should — before you sign it next time. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.
