Last year around this time The Tribune ran a story about the Oak Center Neighborhood Association, whose members were struggling to save an old Victorian mansion in West Okland - from demolition - so that it could be used, for a neighborhood house. They succeeded in saving it from the wreckers, but the house was nearly demolished anyway by vandals. The once elegant edifice at the corner of 16th and Filbert was broken into and the interior ruined beyond repair. It has since been torn down. Were the Association members discouraged by this revolting turn of events? You're-darn right they were. Imagine opening the door of the house you had pinned the hopes of your neighborhood on and finding it wrecked. But the determination which had propelled them forward originally has - come- through again." They are now in the process of selecting another house for their neighborhood center. The choice has now been) narrowed down to two old Victorians with good potential. When the choice is made they have been promised that he Oakland Redevelopment Agency, under the direction of John B. Williams, will rehabilitate the house., Then the Association will purchase it and develop facilities for of fice space, a children s u brary and study hall, an adult library and reading room, a kitchen, classrooms and meet ing rooms. To raise funds for these ambitious plans members of the Oak Center Neighborhood Association are presenting their second annual fashion show at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at Low-ellJunior High School. t Music will be by the Roberts Trio, and Marcia Sakamoto, a- teacher - at McCl mond's High School, will bring some of her dancers to entertain. Joan Sparks, director of the good Samaritan Home, -wiUplay her guitarrand Ernesto jForres, a talented musician, will play violin and several other instruments. But the fashion show will be the highlight of the evening. Styles from Mr. Yanci's Clothes Hanger will be modeled by young people of the community. , Mrs. Mores Rubin is in charge orthe event, and assisting her are the Mesdames Lynn Littlefield, Arsula Hill and Sisoretta Walker.

I have read conflicting advice. One doctor says not to slap the victim's back and another doctor says that it is all right to do so. : it (i e pen ds on circumstances. It may be all right to do so iii one case but in another it could clause the meat to go down further toward the lungs if the back is slapped. - Generally "speaking,- so long as the victim is conscious and actively 1ryingjocoughjp, - the stuck piece of food, it is best to leave 4him all alone, , If it is obvious that the food is obstructing the airway and the victim cannot breathe, then there isn't much choice but to place the victim face down; his head between his knees and slap his back with -Jhehope of jhslodging the piece of food. The slapping should be as gentle as possible to get results. The danger of too vigorous pounding 'of the back is that the victim may suck the object down further -into his windpiipe. . -tal H.U Herschensohn, M.p- Copvnaht 1M, Los AmwIm Tin ;'3ys; ......ai... ipp. i 'in - "iirlii i nrfmrnri m-- Trlbun Bhoto by Howard Erkr Robert Williams and Janese Rubin will model for Oak Center Saturday.

Our bill for two came to $21 and we left a $5 tip which we considered generous. To whom did the tip go? We noticed some men slipping something to the. maitre d and we were embarrassed that we didn't know whether we should, too, and if so, how much. Is this essential -in a restaurant like that? E.D., Hicksville, N.Y. YOUR TIP was generous. The usual tip in such a restaurant is from 15-20 per cent. It is divided between the table waiter and his assistant and, depending upon the restaurant's practice, the area captain. Were you to sign a charge check, there would be space for your tip to the wait er and your tip to the table captain. The amount that you give the maitre d', if any, is always optional, j Women dining alone do not normally Jip the maitre d but a woman giving a dinner party would tip him commensu- Home Line: Dyeing Polyester Sheets Dear Dorothy: I would like to dye some white no-iron muslin sheets the same color as my curtains, to use as liners. -Will the 50 per cent cotton and -50 per cent polyester take an all-purpose dye,; and, also, would the dye ruin the no-iron finish? Mrs. Delores B. AS YOU MAY have noticed on the package of commercial dye, it is not recommended for some polyesters and acrylics."

In this instance, the polyester fibers will absorb the colors differently than the cotton fibers, and could cause light colors. It might be possible to get pastel shades. - , As far as dye hurting the no-iron finish, this is also experimental as such finishes are sometimes affected by too hot water. Good luck - if the above hasn't discouraged you. " O O 0 missing and put it in. George B.

A man, planning to return to the restaurant, particularly pleased with the food and attention he has received and hoping to get good placement the next time, tips the maitre d' anywhere from $1 to $5 or even $10 upon leaving. The average, is $2. Even generous tippers, however, don't do this each time. 0 0 0 Dear Miss Vanderbilt: Do you have any Christmas gift suggestions for an e 1 d e r 1 y woman in her late 80s that would not cost over $10? The lady is senile and all the jcreature comforts are tak- en care of by wealthy relatives. She does nothing but watch TV sometimes, and the nurse is not sure that she knows what she is watching, for it might be just the movement. However, she is aware that under a Christmas tree there should be gifts, so in the past I've managed a few" small bright objects that she can feelShenflesrMrddesn't talk, read or try to walk.
