Hints from Heloise By IIKLOISE CKUSE All correspondence pertaining lo Ihe llcloisc column should be mailed directly lo lldoiso. King Features Syndicate. 235 rj.-lsih.Sim'l. New York. New York 10017. Dear Heloise: I have invented (discovered, actually) a very handy place to store coffee filters by putting a plastic lid on the bottom of the '. coffee can, as well as the top! This little space underneath the plastic lid on the bottom of the coffee can stores a good supply of the filters conveniently, and keeps them clean. Mrs. G. R. Walroth It's true, "Wonders never ; cease!" . .; I've said many times that I ; never cease to be amazed at the - ingenuity of my readers, and your hint is a good example of · what I mean. How did you ever think of ' that'.' : Heloise Dear Heloise: Try adding a little peanut '. butler to pie crust. Use your usual recipe for pie crust but add a rounded tablespoon of peanut butter, culling into the flour along with ·the shortening. (No need to decrease the amount of shortening called forJ Out of sight for pecan pies, banana, even chocolate! D.L. Letter of Love Dear Heloise: Will you have someone fill a box with all those sweet names you call all of us and present it to you from me? "1 love you a bushel and a peck with a hug around the neck." Theltna Shaffer How I loved that present! Thanks shug. Heloise Dear Heloise: If any of your readers get so frustrated from picking up towels after your children get through washing their hands, I have the perfect solution. I look a bath towel, folded it, pul it over the lowel rack and matched up the two ends, pinning them together. This way, after they dry their hands, they just pull the towel and it rolls around to the next clean spot. I also have one in the kitchen over an empty paper towel tube which 1 have left in the holder. Needless to say, I don't have (o buy so many paper towels. Mrs.Newbill Dear Heloise: Now that we have retired, we travel a lot and we were slaves to our luggage the first year. Then, in packing for a six- month stay away from home, we made the rule that whatever won't go in one suitcase stays home. We still took things we didn't need! Mrs.C.R.B. Wish I knew your secret! Heloise Dear Heloise: When my baby started to crawl, I wondered what I could do to protect my daughter's delicate knees. The answer? A tennis wrist guard on each knee has successfully prevented scrapes. The somewhat stretchy top part of an old athletic-type sock works almost as well. Tina Nichols Dear Heloise: This may help some of my contemporaries -- namely those who have reached the age when picking up pins and other very small objects, because of arthritic fingers, is quite a chore. When we sew, we have to rip outa seam now and then. Those little thread clippings are irritatlngly hard to pick off the fabric. Just take a piece of masking tape and you can pick them up easily. . . ( . . · ·Mra.J.M.Trask Dear Heloise:' · .'..- ' ' · · · · This morning I dropped a jar of pickles. Slices, seeds and slivers of glass were in a dismal heap. Visions of other messes flashed through my mind -shiny egg or gummy oatmeal. Then another flash -- a bright idea. I cut a paper plate in two and, using both pieces as a rake. I scooped and shoveled up the mess. I had no cut fingers and UK paper plates cleaned up all the traces of the mishap with only the juice remaining.

JOHNSTOWN By Abigail Van Buren ldl97ebrCtlklloTillluncN.T.N«rlSjnJ lor. DEAR ABBY: This is for Joe's lady friend who is concerned about Joe's poor grammar: I think she is both immature and a snob. I am a retired school teacher whose late husband's education ended with the third grnde. He, too, used poor grammar. I never considered it a fault because he had attributes that far outweighed his lack of education. In fact, his knowledge of many subjects was far superior u mine. MABEL IN GAINESVILLE, FLA. DEAR MABEL: I'm not putting down men who achieved success with "book Icarnin'," but even more credit is due those "street-smart" winners who made it without. DEAR ABBY: That woman who complained because they are now letting women work side by side with men in the coal mines is absolutely right! It has been proved that one of the biggest reasons for the increase in the divorce rate is letting men and women work together. It all started when women went to work in war plants during World War II. Why would it be any different in the coal mines? As long as women can work where they can throw themselves at men, the ones who want to can start a lot of trouble. BEEN THERE DEAR BEEN: So what's the alternative? Are you suggesting segregating the sexes where both men and women arc employed? That would set equal opportunity bock 100 years! You rnn't stop a woman from throwing herself at a man nt work-or anywhere else--if she's the type who'd do so. DEAR ABBY: I am a 42-year-old woman with a wonderful husband and family. However, I have had a problem that has been with me ever since I can remember. 1 don't believe the parents who raised me are my real parents. I know I am not adopted! I have a birth certificate from Queen of Angels Hospital in L. A., and everything is in order, but what drives me nutty is: How can I be sure that I nm the person on that birth certificate? I have never felt that I was the child of my parents. Since childhood, people have observed that I bear absolutely NO resemblance to either of my parents, or to any of my brothers or sisters. I was horn when an earthquake hit L.A., and my mother didn't see me for three days during that time, so I think it's possible that some of the babies in the hospital nursery were mixed up. How can I make sure that I am really the child of my narents? I don't core if you print this. DIANE IN CATHEDRAL CITY DEAR D I A N E : An infant's footprint is usually registered at the time of birth, so you could make a comparison.
