From time to time, we receive letters from readers who wish to offer their needlework talents in one way or another to make articles for someone in need. Ii was brought to my attention recently that the Red'Cross hac directions for two articles tha will be needed for distribution to those in need of such as a cast sock, and a crutch cushion. They are knitted from knitting worsted weight of yarn. The sock should be of one color, bul the crutch cushion may be striped in several colors. Be'the friend indeed, who answers the call from someone in need and make some of these items. Get them to your locai Red Cross Chapter as soon as possibfe. These will give comfort to those who are incapacitated. · * · Knitted Crutch Cushion With size 7 or 8 single pointed needle, cast on 66 sts. K. 2, p 2, for 2 inches. Change to size 10 needle and work in stockinetle stitch for 8 inches. Bind off. Turn back the top 10 rows- and hem down.

Dear Heloise: For a change, one day, I thought of cutting out tiny biscuits instead of the regular-size ones to go with fried chicken and so many cream-gravy .dishes. My husband loved them and said they were a big improvement, because there were more crunchy surfaces and that is what he likes best. Looking for a cutler second needle--Knit 1, slip 1, knit 1-pass slipped stitch over knit stilch. Knit to the end of the needle--third 'needle-Knit Letter of Laughter to within 3 inches of the end, Dear Heloise: small enough, I found a small plastic pill bottle and used that. I rolled out my own biscuit recipe and cut with the "pill cutter." If you are in a hurry, you could use refrigerated biscuits nstead of starling from scratch. One biscuit from the packet :nakes four bite-sized biscuits. 3ently squeeze the biscuit dough together as you go around the edge cutting. There are no trimmings left over Ihis way. The enlire biscuit will be used. For a buffet or a luncheon, I have also rolled these tiny biscuits in Parmesan cheese or onion soup mix.

Finally in desperation I just threw the shirt in the washer, went shopping, and when I came home and took out the shirt . I couldn't believe .my eyes . the stain was gone: · . . ' I have found the perfect rust remover, but just wish I knew what it was! Mrs. G. M. Dear Heloise: When our son was about twelve years old he was always taking his glasses off to wash his face and misplacing them or knocking them off the counter. So my husband attached an old eyeglass case on the wall in the bathroom near Ihe wash basin. This kept the glasses safe and sound and they were always easily found. It- proved to be so handy, we still use it. Mrs. R. B. R. * * * Dear Heloise: I'm a junior in high school and'I would like to share my gift-wrapping idea with your When I wrap gifts for my friends from school, I use our school newspaper as wrapping paper. Then I tie It with ribbons (using our school colors). My friends all think this is a real cute idea. Deborah Peters It is adorable! Heloise Dear Heloise: My husband is always asking me for the telephone numbers of our friends. Somelimes I remember and somelimes I have lo refer to our little black book. More often than not the little black book has been misplaced. I finally solved that problem with the help of my label mak- r. I made label names (shortened versions) and phone numbers for our most oflen called friends . . . stuck them right on the case of the waif phone. It would work just as well on the sides of a desk or extension phone. I also noted the hospital, our doctor, the fire deparlment and the police -- all emergency numbers, too. It's so handy right before our eyes and never misplaced.

By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Your answer to the lady who wanted lo breastfeed her about-lo-be adopled baby saddened me, al- Ihough it did not surprise me. You are hardly to be blamed when the majority of the medical men In the country, including obstetricians and pediatricians would also pooh pooh the idea. Knowledge of the physiology of lactalion and the factors which induce il are woefully lacking in the American medical education of today. There are "primitive societies" (civilization's arrogant adjective for people living more naturally than we do) who very often use the services of other women than a baby's natural mother to breastfeed a baby. In some groups, grandmothers, long past their reproductive years, will successfully suckle infants. The La Leche league is far more sophisticated in Its knowledge of nursing than the medical profession. More power to your correspondent. I applaud her maternal Instinct and hope she makes the attempt to breastfeed her adopted child. It can be done. MRS. L. Me: ALBANY, N.Y. DEAR ABBY: I have had five children, and I nursed only the first one, and that was enough for me! It wasn't my idea. It was my mother-in-law's. She convinced me that it was a "sin" to put my baby on the bottle, so I went along with her theory to keep peace in the family as we were living wilh her at Ihe lime. I finally had to quit when my 22-month-old "baby" cut a full set of teeth on me. "MOTHER OF FIVE" EL CENTRO, CALTF. DEAR ABBY: Please tell that mother-to-be who is so eager to breastfeed her baby that if she's going lo all that trouble because she thinks it will be better for the baby, she shouldn't kid herself. I have had four children. I bottle fed the first two and breastfed the last two. All four are equally healthy. It made no difference in their teeth. In fact, the only child who did not have lo wear bands on his leelh happened lo be a bottle baby. Also, my two breastfed children did not enjoy any "closer" relationship wilh me lhan Ihe bollle-fed children. What a baby needs more than anything else is love, and they got plenty of thai. TWO OF EACH: VALDOSTA, GA. DEAR ABBY: From my own personal experience, I can say lhal bollle babies arc healthier. I nursed my first baby and had nothing but trouble. When I was nervous and fretful, my baby would become nervous and fretful. Every little emotional upset would promptly be transmitted to my baby through my milk. Also breastfeeding seemed to drain me of all my energy. My next three babies went on the bottle immediately, and they were healthier in every way than my first one. And I had a lot more pep, too. MRS. G., ORANGEBURG, S. C. DEAR ABBY: I nursed my adopted baby! It took a lot of patience on my part, but it was well worth the effort. I'm glad I didn't take my doctor's word for it when he told me to "forget it." I can thank the La Leche League! MRS. P. B.:L. A., CALIF. Everybody has a problem. Whafs yours?
