Greeley teacher authors textbook on folklore Sat..March, 1171 OKEELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE I VENEZUELAN ITEMS - Louise Russell taught a year in Venezuela where this harp was played guitar-style with rapid picking as opposed to the slower flowing music of this country. Miss Russell is holding a painted image, and a feather arrangement which is worn on the sleeve of tribesmen far in the inner back country of Venezuela. The wall hanging is a "tapita" woven on a lap loom in the national bird "quetzal" design of Guatemala.

King Kraturcs Syndicate. 235 K «ih Sired. New York. New York 10017. Saturday, Mar. 6 Dear Gang; Now what I did? I got a blop of red fingernail polish on my brand new jeans. What a bummer... With the price of blue jeans today, I was about to have a cat! I did what I always do when I mess something up. I called my mother. That really isn't unusual, t but my mother is Heloise. I have never thought much of it before, but I really am lucky. If something goes wrong, I just pick up the 'phone and ask Mom. It's kinda like "Dial-a- hinl." Once when I was in college, I even called home long-distance to ask how to get wax out of the carpet. (Now I know how.) It does work both ways, too. Many limes I have had to try something, or found out later that I was an experiment for some hint she was trying! Buck to the oi ifciiidl pro'olciii. Called Mom and said, "Help!" "Never fear, your mother is here," The answer was simple and cost me nil. Acetone! You can buy it at a drug store. I paid $1.35 for a pint. You sponge the slain with acetone and the nailpolish will come out. Now listen and listen well. Use Amyl acetate, also found in drugstores, on acalate, Arnel, Dynel and Verel fabrics, and use acetone on others. Be sure lo lest Ihese solutions on a hidden spot of your garment to be certain it won't harm the fabric. Maybe you aren't as careless as I am sometimes, but this sure is good to know. I did (his once before and couldn't get hold of my mother and took the panls to the cleaners. They charged me $1 to take the stain out. Not that I wasn't grateful, but now I can do it myself for a few pennies. When you get your can of acetone, read the label well, and be sure to follow all instruct inns for its use and safety. Hpc this will help you sometime, but if you aren't a dummy like I was and are careful, maybe you will never have to use this hinl. Heloise II Dear Heloise' Don'l throw away any old suitcase -- no matter how battered. I use mine to store Christmas decorations.

Angyai Our Mailman; "I'm dragging so loday, even the ants arc rushing by me..." Dear Heloise: If anyone has a foam-backed chair or sofa Ihrow that is beyond use, wash it and peel off the foam. The foam is ideal to use when stuffing little toys. IV J. And you can't beat the price, cither...

I solved the problem by sticking a heel pad used to keep shoes from slipping. Just cut off the extra and you are all set. You won't have lo be tugging at the straps all the time.

Louise Russell, who teaches language arts at Heath Junior High School, has recently had published her book "Understanding Folk Lore." The book is a text for secondary schools and deals with folklore in the concept of tales from this area, although the scope is more inclusive and suitable to anywhere in the United States. Examples of legends are presented with illustrations and photographs, the latter by Paul Moloney of Ihe Greeley Tribune. A leacher for 15 years, she is .trying to "get across" to the students what folklore really is. Her major is English, but studenls stimulated her interest oin folklore. She would find ballads to which there was no music written -- the lyrics but not the musical scores. So she bought a guitar and learned to play. She now plays and sings in the early-day tradition. An Oklahoman, the southern ballads come as a natural. Her father was a Methodist minister and she traveled a bit. So intense was her interest in the historical background of customs and music lhat she enrolled at the Indiana University Folklore Institute which she attended two years. This was after she had a B.A. from Oklahoma City University and M.A. from Northwestern frw X u*ii W University at Evanston out of Chicago, 111. Miss Russell came to Greeley in 1963, and taught at Greeley Central High School until 1968. She went to South America to teach a year in a Venezuelan American school. She taught English to children of American families employed by companies in Venezuela. Following her return from South America she taught in New Jersey a year but was very anxious to return to Greeley. The time involved in writing the book was one entire summer in which she did a great deal of research, later making many revisions and finally completing the edition for the publisher during Christmas break a year ago. It takes about a year and a half for a publisher to turn out Ihe edition. This author was browsing in a part of Mexico City, Mexico, when in a very out-of-the-way place that looked like a shed she found the guitar she now plays. She had a bit of dickering to do to obtain her guitar, for it seems the merchant had never heard of travelers checks, and would not accept them. Her two traveling companions and she finally raised enough cash lo satisfy the trader and she came away with her guitar. She has another guitar she purchased in the Canary Islands. Louise Russell, who received her Ph.D. at the University of Indiana studying folklore, is now considered an authority on the subject. FOLKLORE MUSIC -- Of intense interest to Louise Russell, author, is folklore mutic. Here she prepares to play the dulcimer with feather pick, the instrument originating from the south Appalachian area. It is an adaptation of an older, large instrument played on a bable by hitting the strings with a mallet.

South took the ace and king of trumps, having gained nothing from West's lead. South knew he would have to play diamonds eventually, in the attempt lo win a truck with dummy's queen or his own ten. Dut this could wait: in the meantime lie could develop the clubs. Gets Break South cashed the ace of clubs and continued with the queen. East won with the king of clubs and should have returned the ten of clubs since this would do nolhing for South. Instead, East returned a spade, hoping to damage South by forcing him lo ruff.
