Hints From Heloise DEAR HELOISE: I just couldn't resist telling, you about my creations that I finished some time ago involving an unused portable television stand with tubular legs and wheels, a clock with a broken case and a coffee table with a very unsightly, marred top. The idea originated because I had ruined the veneer on a coffee table top. The table was too good to discard yet miserable to look at. So, I decided to cover the top with mosaic tiles and antique the remainder of the woodwork. When I finished, I had tile left over, so I cut a sixteen- inch square of plywood that was one-half inch thick And created a simple pattern on this with the mosaic tile. Then placed it on the unused TV stand. Presto, an end table for my studio couch in the TV room—the same room where I used the coffee table. I sprayed the tubular legs of the TV stand with gold paint. To use the rest of the tile, I resurrected a clock which had a f broken case and had been hidden in a drawer for years. I had a wooden frame made to encase the face and timepiece and also covered it with mosaic tile — again using a simple pattern. I used the clock In. the same room with the other two pieces. / All three pieces are so serviceable and cost very little to put into good use. With a man in the house I'm sure the table top could be anchored in some way on the portable TV stand. I have mine just resting on the top and it has worked out all right for me. Don't know when I've had so much fun! Annabelle Bossick * * * LETTER OF THOUGHT DEAR HELOISE: Don't feel useless—you can always be used as a bad example! A Reader • * • DEAR HELOISE: With Easter so close I would like to share this little tip with other mothers. My four kiddies, ages twelve through five, love to dye their own eggs but I always dreaded the mess, the confusion, and, most of all, the spills that were inevitable. Then I started saving my WIN AT BRIDGE used plastic foam 1 cups. I washed them real well and put away for just this occasion. They are just the riffht size and can be thrown away •— • no more stained cups and bowls. Fill each cup with a different colored dye and you're all set. But, I found the most important thing- is to set each cup of dye in a cup of your muffin tin and they won't get turned over by little hands reaching- to check on their eggs. Now I relax and the kids enjoy decorating to their - heart's content. Yvonne Johnson DEAR HELOISE: For a luscious, easy, low-fat dessert, try whipping slightly jelled gelatin with corresponding flavor of low-fat yogurt until thoroughly mixed . . . then chill. I use slightly less water when preparing the gelatin. Fruit may be added but it's not necessary. I've tried strawberry, raspberry and orange . . . all equally good! It makes a pretty mold.

West led the queen of hearts which was woivby dummy's king, A club-lost to West's ace, whereupon a heart lead gave East two heart tricks and a spade lead back ended all hope for the declarer. At different stages in the play. South could have made one', two or three n(hfrurnp. See if ypu can find"these lost opportunities. The first was when East played the king of diamonds. South could have ducked. If East led back a spade they would have collected four spades and the ace of clubs and South would have made his contract on the nose. The play for three no- trump would have been for South to play three rounds of diamonds immediately. This would put West on lead with the nine and his best play would be to lead ace and another club, but this would allow South two clubs, two hearts and five diamonds for a total of nine. The chance for eight tricks occurred when West led the queen of hearts. South should let this hold. If West played his last heart South Would make nine. If West shifted to ace and another club, South would only make one heart trick, two clubs and five diamonds for eight tricks. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

News Smd., inc.] DEAR ABBY: I have news for the girl in Eudora, Kan., who claims she is dateless because she's nice. I happen to be a 26-year-old bachelor who lives in Eudora, so I think I'm in a position to know. I am no creep, and I've dated all kinds of girls, here and in other cities. I feel sorry for a girl who doesn't get asked for dateg, and if it makes her feel better to say it's because she's "too nice," it's all right with me. But that's not the real reason. There must be something wrong with her personality. A girl can't be too nice! Sure, a guy will take out an easy number just to prove to himself that he's a "man," but after he's used the girl for that purpose, she's had it. Girls who put out may enjoy a rush of popularity for a while, but guys talk, and if the girl wants to settle down and be respectable, she'd better leave town. Sock it. to 'em, Abby. And keep telling young girls that men still want "good girls." Boys look for the other kind, so if a girl wants to end up with a man and not a boy, tell her to save herself. EUDORA READER DEAR ABBY: I got a chuckle over the letter from the girl in Eudora, Kan., who is dateless because she's "nice." Maybe there is something about Eudora that causes the trouble. When I went to high school there I never had a date either. x Tell her to hapg on. If it takes 10 dateless years to find a husband as good as mine, it's worth it. TERESA: E. H. S. CLASS OF '57 DEAR ABBY: This is for the nice girl from Eudora, Kan.: My roommate is a junior in college and I am a freshman. We were "decent" in high school and it paid off. We have done a lot of dating in college mostly with guys who ask us out more than once because they have a good time. And we don't have to put out either. The guys who just want sex don't ask us twice. And who needs them? Most fellows respect girls who say no! Here is our motto: "Friendship may blossom into love, but don't cheapen yourself and give love to gain friendship." The joy of true love is worth all the waiting it takes. FLAGSTAFF, ARIZ. DEAR ABBY: This is for the girl who said that nice girls don't get dates. She's wrong. Boys don't ask girls out because they want only sex. Sure, if you're giving it away, they'll take it, but they do have other interests. I'll bet that nice Kansas girl is dateless because she lets a guy know right off the bat that she thinks all he wants is sex, and that turns him off. LOTS OF DATES AND STILL A VIRGIN I* • ' DEAR ABBY: About that girl who said boys don't care to date nice girls. You. said she was wrong. Well, you goofed. I say she's absolutely right. Face it, Abby, you aren't a teen-ager anymore. SEVENTEEN DEAR SEVENTEEN: I know it. They were saying the same thing when I was a teen-ager, and they were wrong then, too. DEAR ABBY: That girl was so wrong to say that guys don't want to date girls unless they can score with them. I am a 27-year-old bachelor who enjoys the company of a girl I can have a good time with and I assure you I can leave sex out of it. There is so much more to dating and relationships than just heading for the bedroom. I come from the old school where a walk in the moonlight and a kiss at the door is a perfect ending for a wonderful evening. As far as I'm concerned, good girls are in style, and I hope that girl in Kansas doesn't lose her faith in us men. R. K. IN OSHKOSH, WIS. What'* your problem?
