Even though they didn't win a prize on their humorous characters racing across the hospital lawn, they felt their time was well spent, and all had fun. Approximately 10 to 15 people working 35 to 40 man-hours completed the job. The X-ray department can be credited for engineering the idea, which boiled down to an idea thought up by Val Schroeder. Work began a week ago Saturday. Men from the Mantainance department built the framework and scooped the snow together. Employes who lived near furnished hot coffee to the workers. The employes aren't making any promises, but being whispered up and down the hospital corridors are ideas for a bigger and better snow sculpture for next year. rri../.

POLLY'S POINTERS Her Pet Peeve Involves Driving Safety Measure By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with car manufacturers. Why do they plate windshield wipers with such shiny material? When the bright sun hits this shiny chrome finish it practically blinds the driver as well as the other occupant of the front seat. A dull coating would certainly help your eyes.—MARY K. Polly's Problem cr- ~ v > * DEAR POLLY—I am crocheting a ripple afghan. The pattern goes: Skip 1st stitch from hook, work one single crochet in each of next 2 sts., skip 1 St.* ^ 1 sc in each of 11 sts., 3 sc in next st., 1 sc in each '•• of 11 sts., skip 2 sts. Repeat from * 11 times. i I follow the pattern, but the sides of the afghan ' are not staying even and straight but get larger and ,: slanted. I have tried skipping 2 extra sts. at begin- > , ning of each row but this does not help. Nothing / > seems to be wrong as I have checked and rechecked ' ., the pattern for mistakes. Any ideas, anybody?— s MARLA DEAR POLLY—I want to tell Margaret I remove candle wax marks from PAINTED walls with an ice cube. After it thoroughly hardens the wax so it is not pliable, use tweezers to gently loosen the edges, then slowly and carefully push a dull knife under the hard wax. Just pull it off in one piece as it is frozen together and will not fall apart.—TERRY DEAR POLLY—I hope my Pointer helps other parents with children who are unable to swallow a pill or capsule. I tried all sorts of things until, in desperation, I had my 14-year-old put the capsule on her tongue but take the water through a large plastic straw. This worked so well I wish I had thought of it 29 years ago when our first child had this trouble.—AUDREY (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
