STRICTLY PERSONAL Gifts for All Occasions Simple to Make at Home Christmas, birthdays a n d other gift requiring days come many times too often aro u nd most households, but the fact is that many nice, yet inexpensive gifts, can be made in your own home. For the bride-lo-be, t a ke children's tin sanclpails. and convert into c 1 eve: snack buckets. Paint them w i t h enamel—black is especial I y modern. Decorate with flowers, or the bride's monogram, or some silly slogan such as "Why Knot?" for the pretzel bucket. Wax. When weddings and anniversaries roll around, here's how you can give inexpensive unfinished wood salad bowls that professional look. Rub with very fine sandpaper lo smooth rough spots. Dust off. Apply coat of sealer, wait two or three minutes, then wipe off excess with clean cloth lo eliminate shiny spots. Let dry overnight. Sandpaper lightly, dust, apply second coat of sealer as before. Apply several coats of wax, polishing each with clean dry cloth. For Ihe new home make a conversation piece—f, IctUcc washer (disguised of course). Dip [he washer in black paint. Before you go "housewarm- i«g," \vs;c your gift for a rich gloss. Then fill with bright yellow lemons and shiny green leaves. For mother on Mother's Day or any other day, get your hands on two wooden cigar boxes (the kind with a metal clasp t and you're in business. Paint them a color to harmonize with her bedroom. Letter in gold or with nail polish: "Answered" and "To Be Answered." Mother will love them for her mail. And don't forget father or husband. Use road maps to cover a sturdy gift box. Pack in it a car cleaner-polish, a bottle of creamy clean-up wax for the plastic or leather 'upholstery and a can of chrome cleaner. Include a yard of cheesecloth or a special car polishing cloth. For .1 really special gift, add a whisk broom, sponge, chamois, windshield frost scraper, flashlight, etc. Bazaar and psriy prizes many times become a nuisance, but with a bag for "traveling earrings," you can't go wrong- Handsome travel cases for earrings can be made out of coin purses—the kind you get in every handbag and never use. Add a glamorous touch by sewing on can-can ruffles of ribbon. Or slipcover in vel- vet and add a design of a pair of earrings by sewing on sequins, pearls, small rhinestones or buttons. Give your favorite little girl n battered and discarded piece of luggage. Fill it with an out-of-date dress (the fancier, the belter) —n scarf or two, a ruffled petticoat, some high-heeled pumps, a purse, a frilly blouse. Special tip: Wax the suitcase and paint the young lady's initials on it with nail polish. With little effort and lots of urn any of these gifts can be made in your own home. 4 Sisters Honored Four sisters, together for the first time in 25 years, were honored with a farewell dinner Sunday at. the home of Mrs. Merman Vaughan, 847 S.

By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: 1 am 19. I accepted a blind date with a soldier who was a budcly of my cousin's steady. This boy is nice. He's been thro ugh college and the air force. 1 decided that I would experiment with him since I would probably never see him again. I have a good reputation a n d have necked with boys, but that's all. Well, 1 let this one go father than 1 should have. Not seriously far, but far enough so that 1 am terribly ashamed of myself. I now find that I really like this boy and wr.nt him to know that I don't act that way with every other boy ! go with. I wouldn't blame him if he thought I was cheap. But I am really not, Abby. How can I get him to believe and respect me?

DEAR ABBY: Before you condemn ALL "other women", please listen to my story. I was ' : the other woman" (5 years ago. 1 broke up a man's home and took him from his wife and 4 children and I didn't even know it. He not only lied to his wife about, me—he lied lo me about his wife. I didn't know until ten months after 1 married him (and we went together two years* that he was married when I met him. As you can guess, we aren't very happy. What woman could be, knowing she married Ihe world's bi'-^esl liar?

Is there any way I can learn correct grammar and vocabulary at my age? No home courses, please. MRS. LEFT BEHIND DEAR MRS. LEFT: Inquire into your local adult education classes.

DEAR ABBY: My hubby and I have been married almost 2") years with no major problems. We've been disagreeing over something for a long time.

Now the men have traded places. They're the ones who hamper a woman's freedom rather than the other way around. And as a result, everybody is mixed'up. Take the. word of marriage counselor Ruth Engle: "There's never been r time in history that girls had so much freedom before maniage —and been so tied down afterwards." Mrs. Engle feels many marital woes arise because women no longer have a well-defined role. They are educated for careers far removed from homemaking. Then: "It's a terrific letdown when a woman finds herself confined to home and babies. It brings out resentments she takes out on her husband- even though he isn't actually to blame." Mrs. Engle is associated with Mrs. Jane Mayer in a private counseling agency, Marri age Council and Family Guidance, Inc. On the basis of four years experience listen! >g to marriage troubles, her sympathy is with the men. "The husband used to be recognized as head of the house. Now all the slogans emphasize togetherness. That implies equal authority—and that means trouble. Both partners fee-1 their so-called rights are more important than a good relationship with one another." Mrs. Engle notes that now nearly all women work before marriage. They have money to spend as they want and few restrictions on their comings and goings. Then come the wedding bells —which toll a death knell for feminine independence. "They mean the wife has one income—her husband's. She is financially dependent. And it's worse when a child comes along. She's confined to the house and the routine gets her down." jMrs. Engle is a great friend of household help—and finds Jt unfortunate that servants nowadays are virtually nonexistent. ""As housewives, women don't get as much free time as their grandmothers," she says. "Servants, unmarri e d female relations, big families, all used to share the work. Now the wife does it all." Mrs. Engle thinks worn e n should be educated primarily for their ultimate destination- marriage. She is a strong advocate of pre-marital counseling in high school and college. This doesn't mean women can't study languages, typing, chemistry or even Buddhism if I hey like. But Mrs. Engle says they should have a realistic view of what they're getting into in marriage and "be ready to handle it as an occupation with its own special skills." Mrs. Engle sticks to the idea that woman makes the marriage. She concedes that some men are impossible to live with. But she also notes it is more important in our society, emotionally and economically, for a woman to be married. "If a woman is able to see the relationship as more important than the idea of individual happiness, a marriage can work out." She adds: —The most important thing in marriage is to.,make: the other person happy—not to think "What do I get out of it?" —Learn to give and it comes back to you. People are starved for praise; give it and your partner will bloom. —Living happily ever ->fter isn't automatic. You have to work at it, constantly. ; TONl Ft ENJOY CHICKEN DEL1GH YOU CALL - WE DELIVER DRIVE IN Now Showing MON.-TUES.-WED.
