Hors d' Oeuvres tree. . . festive table decoration This Tree Decorates Buffet Table For centuries a green leafy tree has set the mood for holiday decorating. The National Hog Dog & Sausage Council suggests complementing your buffet table with an DOTS d'oeuvres tree decorated with sausage, vegetable and fruit tidbits. A sausage tree is fun to make and an unusual focal point for a festive buffet table. The wide selection of sausage products available give you a variety of color and textures in addition to great eating. Add to the creativity of your tree by making salami or bologna cornucopias, rolls and olive wraps. And be sure to include a package or two of small cocktail sausages on your shopping list. Create a new side dish appetizer by stuffing deli-size dill pickles with liver sausage or braunschweiger. To form the tree, select a styrofoam cone — large or small, depending on the number of guests — and cover with green foil. Next add greens using endive, escarole or parsley, securing them to the tree with fine hairpins. Work from the bottom up, tucking stems behind the leaves below. If using parsley, try to find bushy bunches with short stems. After the tree is completely covered, spray with a fine mist of water and store in a plastic bag in your refrigerator.

Since I was born 18 years ago. I have never known the woman to throw away anything. This goes for newspapers, magazines, clothes, jars, boxes, ribbon, used gift wrappings just name it and she's got it slacked all over the place. I am ashamed to have anyone over. The sight of all the garbage is revolting. I would like your opinion of how to cure my mother of this habit. BURIED ALIVE LN VANCOUVER DEAR BURIED: Pack rats are not victims of habit they are severely neurotic people whose problem goes way back usually to days of extreme poverty. Just sweat it out till you have your own home and can do as you please. Until then, keep your pea-pickin hands off her •'garbage" and look the o'.her way. Any individual who takes it upon himself to throw out a pack rat's "prized possessions" takes his life in his hands. * * * DEAR ANN: My boyfriend is 19 years old. We get along jus i fine except for one thing he is an alcoholic. I've tried to get him to talk aboui why he drinks but he clams right up. I personally believe it has something to do with his family life when he was growing up. Morris' fa'.her was also an alcoholic, which is why his mother divorced him. • I've read just about every book and pamphlet ever written on alcoholism but they all say the alcoholic must admit he is an alcoholic 'which Morris won't do.i and once that is accomplished he must seek outside help, preferably join A.A. I've considered giving him an ultimatum booze or me, bul the last woman he was involved with did that and he di'ched her. I don't v/ant to lose Morris no mailer whal, and please don't tell me I'm better off without him, because I'm not. Whal else can I Iry? I'm at Ihe end of my rope. IN LOVE WITH AN ALCOHOLIC DEAR IN LOVE: You can join Al-Anon an organizalion for people who want lo learn how to live with alcoholics. Look in the phone book and inquire about the time and place of their next meeting. Al-Anon is free and they have had a remarkably high record of success. Good luck. Any girl who wants to hang on lo a 19- year-old alcoholic who refuses io face up to his problem needs all 'he luck she can gel. * * * DEAR ANN: I'm 27, a career woman, and happy with my life. Problem: the lush in the next apartment. She's a big-hearted person, loves a good time and her husband's in Europe on a government assignment until February. I made the mistake of in- viiing her in one evening when :here was an extra man. Now she comes over whenever she hears I have company, fixes herself a drink and slays all evening. The doll ha» eased her way inlo my circle of friends, gets pie-eyed and I'm afraid of whal might happen. She has already "lost her head" with i wo men I hat I know of. I'm scared stiff Ihe word may get lo her husband thai I encouraged his wife to play around and I don'l need that kind of trouble. Whal can I do? - LEXINGTON KY. DEAR LEX: Tell the doll she is no longer free to drop in because her conduct is unacceptable. With a little luck she'll get mad and never speak lo you again.
