PAT FRANCIS O'ROURKE (Portrait by Canales) Helaise Cruse Hints From Heloise List Of Freezer Contents 'On Door Helps Shopping By HELOISE CRUSE ' Dear Heloise: My refrigerator has a small freezer. For about a year now I have been taping a piece of paper on the freezer door, with a ; list of the contents of the freezer. I add to the list after I have shopped, and cross off items -as they are used. In this way I always know what foods I have without rummaging through the .--entire freezer. I also know what to buy each week after con-w suiting the list. When "steaks are on ;:sale, and I don't have any, I stock .--up on them. ;:if I see that Z I have a suf- f i c ient sup-'-Tply, I pass up that sale. This . applies to all frozen foods. 11 After defrosting, I list the -contents on a fresh piece of ".-.paper and attach it to the door --with tape. " This hint can be applied to any type freezer. Just put the jlist where it is not seen by oth--iers unless the refrigerator or freezer is opened. . Loramae Begun ' Dear Heloise: I Have you ever had a beautiful head scarf or neck scarf and 'dreaded washing it because you were afraid it might come out ""'limp as a rag? - - - I wash and rinse mine care- fully (do not squeeze) then roll Z the scarf in a terry cloth towel ; and pat to remove as much I rmoisture as possible. Then I press them with the grain of the material with a - warm iron. ; When they are in shape, lift them from the ironing board and cover the ironing board with - waxed paper. Lay the scarf on ; it and give a final press. Enough of the wax goes into the fibers of the scarf to make Dear Heloise: I have discovered a way to save a package of bologna once it has been opened. I remove the slices from the package and place each slice between pieces of waxed paper. t Then i put them ail in a plastic Providence Auxiliary bag and freeze them.

A. S. B. ,Dear Heloise: When wrapping gift packages, I use the pretty plastic flowers found in any dime store rather ' than the conventional bows. - Just a sprig of tiny flowers or a large bloom tied with a sim--ple shoe-lace bow makes an especially nice package. T If you fold the stems under, rather than cutting them off, 'the recipient has an added me- mento to display in a vase. ' Recently, I wrapped a bridal -shower gift and used a sprig of tiny white roses as a minia- ture bridal bouquet, right down ' to the satin streamers formed tby the tying ribbon. You never ; heard so many nice comments. - MRS. D. H. H. Dear Heloise: Don't throw away an old rub- ber glove until you cut the fin-' . gers off. They can be used on -your thumb when cutting fruits - and vegetable; so that you won't ' cut your thumb into slivers. '.-. Cecelia I want to make a .sandwich, I just remove one frozen slice. The handwich is prepared as usual and the meat is defrosted by lunch time. Housewife Dear Heloise: Tell the gals not to throw away daughter's old bouffant slips! They contain scads of scouring cloths. Just launder the slips, cut them to desired sizes and use. They are generally topped with a fancy nylon lace panel . . . cut it to size and put in a arawstring. aingo! A soap chip bag. Fancy, too! So don't throw those old piles of fluff into the rag bag. Use them! Mrs. G. Rockhold Dear Heloise: When frying pork chops, or anything that has to be dipped in batter, I find the batter will stick better if a little vinegar is added to it. Mrs. R. W. Kurnmer And vinegar is also supposed to tenderize meats. Hie vine gar does not taste after frying. Heloise Dear Heloise: Sometimes a lace slip top comes up too high under the arm no matter how low you adjust it by the shoulder straps. Here's what I did: I cut away the lace so that it would be comfortable. Then I took fine crochet thread and with a fine hook, single crocheted right through the lace, giving it a fine strong fin ish.

Around El Paso By RUBY BURNS About 450 women attended the Woman's Symphony Committee luncheon in El Paso Country Club Friday in support of the group's scholarship drive. Margaret (Mrs. Ralph) Meyer, who heads the committee, must have been a happy person indeed when she looked over the club, with every nook and corner filled with tables ' and all the tables filled with Symphony Committee members and their guests. Busy helping people find their places were Mrs. John Grambling and Mrs. Tom Mayfield Jr., cochairmen of the event. Special guests introduced included Orlando Barera, Symphony musical director, and Mrs. Barera and wives of high-ranking officers at Ft. Bliss, Biggs Air Force Base and William Beaumont General Hospital. These included Mrs. Charles Cantrell of Bliss, who was accompanied by her daughter, Marilyn. They are to leave soon for Ft. Sill where Marilyn is to be married to Capt. Lewis Del Rosso. Food definitely was not the drawing card for the day it was the showing of the elegant iashions of Michael Novarese, the California designer, to which the guests were looking forward. And they were not disappointed. Mr. Novarese, presented by the Popular and doing his own commentary, presented a fast-moving show of some 75 pieces, with eight beautiful El Paso models and one import, Miss Alida Van, a top West Coast model, just back from working in Paris, wearing the clothes. There is more than one look m a good collection and so there is in the Novarese clothes. Predominant in silhouette are variation of the princess shape. Talking with Mike Novarese just before the show, I was told that he believes in demi-fit, lightly shaped clothes that have ease. He makes no cinched, restricted shapes, but does have ways of making a woman look like a woman and some of his evening clothes cling rather closely. A revelation of his ability with a tweed suit was one shown here in black and white having a princess topcoat with slim matching skirt and white crepe overblouse. This number was ordered by the editors of both Vogue and Harper's Bazaar for their personal wardrobes when they saw his collection. The opening group displayed a marvelous imported silk print with burgundy and red colors predominating, the print having won an international award. The designer used it in several dresses, then showed it in a silk suit with a long,' slender jacket accented in front with a high-placed bow in empire effect. The same suit was seen later in black silk. Fabulous is the word for the evening clothes, some paved with jewels and beads, some lavished with embroideries and furs. Albert Schwartz took over the microphone to do commentary for a group of furs now being shown in the Popular. Included were precious minks, a finely styled tunic coat in black broadtail and a jacket of sables. Door prizes were awarded at the end of the show, the drawing done by three daughters of Symphony members, Lucille Heliums, Lanier McKinstry and Libby Belk. Most of the tables were no-host, just friends and congenial groups getting together. Mrs. Maurice Schwartz and Mrs. Ralph Sanders arranged two such tables, while Marge (Mrs. Ira) Budwig and Tabby (Mrs. Schuyler) Marshall did the same for a group of young-marrieds. Executives of the Popular and their wives were seated at a table just below the stage. It was my pleasure to be seated with Mrs. David Price, Mrs. Asa Porter, Mrs. C. M. Harvey, Mrs. Jesse Connell and Miss Ann Cameron. Ann, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. David Cameron, will leave next week for Columbia, Mo., where she will enter Christian College. M Miss Joan Martin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Martin, is visiting in Mayport, Fla., with her cousins, Lt. and Mrs. J. D. Cardon. She arrived there a few days before hurricane Cleo and was quite excited about being in her first storm. Joan will visit her aunts in Tampa and West Palm Beach, before flying home in time to register for the fall term at Texas Western College where she will be a freshman. Her mother is back home after spending the summer visiting relatives and friends in Florida and Georgia. Miss Patricia Wright left this week by jet for Fresno, Calif., to visit Miss Judy Travis who was her roommate at New Mexico State University last year. Patricia will visit with friends in Oakland for a few days before returning home. Col. Miter, Mrs. Skinner Say Vo ws Col. Frank F. Miter, (ret)., 4906 Trowbridge Ave. and Mrs. Edith S.
