Coleen Carlson Honored At Bridal Shower ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL, FEB. 11, 1972 Page 2 No Time Lost. . . Eileen, Mrs. H. Allen Wirtz, has put considerable "elbow grease" into the setting in which she is pictured above. She refinished both the chair, which was given to her by her mother, and the table which was her grandmother's. The needlepoint picture of a bowl of blueberries on which she is working will be a hanging for the dining room wall. (Daily News Photo by Dorothy Petersen) " Just - A-Housewife " By CAROL HIGGINS "I don't do any more in the church than the average layman," is the assertion of Eileen Wirtz, wife of the Rev. H. Allen Wirtz of the Presbyterian Church. Instead, she says she concentrates on being a housewife and mother with work in the Hospital Auxiliary as. an outside interest. "I enjoy the "out," Eileen says. "When I go up to work in the coffee shop, it's a good time to run upstairs and see friends who are patients in the hospital." She doesn't take time for much more than a friendly hello, she says but she feels it is "real important to let them Vtriow you are thinking of them." She also has found it to be a way of broadening her circle of acquaintances. Auxiliary members on coffee shop duty are assigned to work two at a time for each shift. "I seldom work with a Presbyterian," Eileen says. "It is usually someone of another faith and someone I have never met." She likes exchanging patterns for knitting and recipes. Cooking and knitting are two of her chief interests. She likes to bake and enjoys having her three children Tiring friends home from school to eat the goodies. Allen is in third grade, Deborah in seventh and Vicki a junior in high school. She learned to crochet this winter from her mother-in-law and recently Eileen and daughter Debbie enrolled in a needlepoint class. When attending a session of the state legislature in Des Moines Monday, where the Rev. Mr. Wirtz represented the church's viewpoint on taxation of church property, Eileen took along her needlepoint. Sitting in at the legislature, she got a lot done that day, she says, and it is hoped the legislature did as well. Another of her very practical hobbies is refinishing and restoring old furniture. She has stripped and refinished several carved pieces which had belonged to her grandmother, a chifforobe which was an heirloom in her husband's family and a dining set. The dining chairs were given her by her mother and she bought a round table from a friend in West Bend. When refinishing the table, she discovered a trademark underneath reading, "Estherville Furniture Co., Estherville, Iowa." Delighted with the discovery, she has since done some sleuthing and learned that the furniture company was operated by J. P. Johnson in the early 1900s in a building across from Gardston Hotel where the pool hall is now situated. All-in-all, Eileen "loves to keep house." For her it is not a round of drudgery but an art, a way of self-expression, even to her "out," as a member of Hospital Auxiliary when she can run up and see the patients.

Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY—I have seen baby's first shoes is ss bronzed and used in various ways, but I wonder if m any of the readers have discovered practical or • clever ways of using or displaying baby's first j spoon.—FRANCES DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the elastic used for the very top button on blouses that button up the front. No matter how expensive the blouse, the elastic never holds up for long and it is nearly impossible to replace.—LORETTA DEAR POLLY—I am answering Bernice who wanted to know if the popular nonstick coating on cooking utensils is poisonous when it flakes off. I quote from a leaflet that came with my grille; "Customers occasionally ask if on cookware gives food a strange flavor or is any way dangerous to health. The answer is, "absolutely NO," in both cases. This is backed with tests conducted by the Co. and the Food and Drug Administration."— CAROL V. DEAR GIRLS—Bernice also wanted to know how to remove the coating from such a pan that has started to peel. A company making these products says, "The cost to remove the old finish and undercoat and then properly resurface would be prohibitive." The Food and Drug Administration wrote me as follows: "In the matter of the pan, it would be no health hazard, it would just be that there would be more of a spot-sticking of food to the pan where the is missing." They also said a cause for the flaking is that the pan is heated and cooled too suddenly.-POLLY DEAR POLLY—I almost cried when I removed my double knit pants suit from the dryer and found gum spots all over the front. Melting ice cubes, an old standby, did not work this time but my niece suggested that I try lighter fluid and an old toothbrush. I put fluid on each spot, back and front of the fabric, and scrubbed briskly with the brush. When the gum was all gone, I washed and dried the suit. It came out looking like new and without even one spot.—BARBARA B. DEAR POLLY—To make a rug the kids will love, buy a yard of 36-inch wide fake fur material in the color and pattern of your choice, cut to any desired shape with pinking shears and spray the back with rug backing.—JO ANNE.

Most mothers whose children's shoes prove to be a size or IV2 sizes shorter than their measurement tell the shoeman that they felt the toe and there seemed to be room. There are many reasons why this manner of testing is not reliable. The child may have been sitting down; the shoes may be too narrow to allow his toe to get down into the front, etc. Consider this: the great toe of most babies when they are fitted for their first pair of shoes is about IV2 inch in length. When they reach adult life those great toes will be only 2 to 3 inches long. The major growth is behind the toes. We think of the toes growing into the fronts of shoes butac- tually they are pushed there by the growth of the mass of the foot. We should not allow that pressure to crowd the soft bones of young feet against the ends of shoes, soxor sleeper feet. In fact almost all .Qf,the_commonfoot defects.can be avoided if the great toe is allowed to remain straight. The only reliable way to check the fit of shoes is to re> measure the feet, being careful to be guided by the length of the longer foot, UthaviUcS/ioeStcii •It- 3 f DALE & LAVINE SIGNS Put Yourself In Our Shoes Educational TV Feb. 14 Thru Feb. 20 On Channel 3, Community TV Cable 3:30 4:00 4:30 5:30 6:00 6:15 6:30 7:00 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 MONDAY, FEB. 14 NETCHE Course "Understanding the Fine Arts" Misterogers' Neighbor hood Sesame Street The Electric Company Charlie's Pad "Cartoon Situations" Gutentag Kalorie Kitchen PBS Special of the Week NET Opera "The Trial of Mary Lincoln" A Look At Lincoln Bookbeat "The Peaceable Kingdom" How Do Your Children Grow "Coward, Take My Coward's Hand" USD Profile The French Chef Masterpiece Theatre: Elizabeth R 9:00 Extension Weekly 9:30 Panorama 10:00 Bookbeat "The Peaceable Kingdom" 10:30 Firing Line THURSDAY, FEB. 17 3:30 NETCHE Course "Understanding the Fine Arts" 4:00 Misterogers' Neighborhood 4:30 Sesame Street 5:30 The Electric Company 6:00 The Busy Knitter 6:30 Joyce Chen Cooks "Boned Chicken" 7:00 House and Home 1972 7:30 NET Playhouse Biography "George Washington: Portrait of the Hero as a Young Man" 9:00 Film 9:30 Basketball USD vs Mankato State. 7:30 Encore Paris 8:30 The Eternal Tramp 9:30 David Susskind Show "Has Anyone Here Seen God?"
