One of the victims was still alive, but.he died in an Air Rescue Service helicopter en route to a hospital. Inaccessible To Vehicles The swamp was inaccessible to vehicles and bulldozers had Lo carve out a road through 600 yards of swampland before the victims could be taken by trucks to the army base.

Hints From Heloi ise By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I have a set of twins. (Since you say you are a twin yourself, will you please tell people that twins are sets . .. not a pair. (A pair is "quadruplets.") Since mine are boys, we buy most of their clothes. All these clothes-pants, un- shirts, shorts, T- shirts, coats, jackets, gloves, etc. have labels ii them. I rip out the labels in one set of clothing therefore identifying, at a glance, which son it belongs to. This might help many mothers who have two sons near the same age, or a son who wears the same size underwear as his dad. Don't you think you should pass this along? Sure saves time Mother Dear Mother: You just passed it along, and I think it's a jewel! And, I really am a twin. Not only that, but here's something else that will amaze you: When my grandfather was married the first time, they had a set of twins and another child That child had twins. My grandfather's first wife died and he remarried. By my grandmother he had twins and two other children. One of those twins was my mother. My twin sister and I were born on her birthday. Now ... can you top that? Thank goodness mine were singles. Twin Heloise Dear Heloise: For a kitchen shower gift, 1 dress a full bottle of detergent to look like a doll . . . using two nylon dishcloths, for the doll's arms and fasten them on with tape.. A small doily folded, in half is the front of the dress. I use a curly pot scratcher for the head, with black-felt for eyelashes and red felt for the mouth, which I also tape on Jessie Thompson Dear Heloise: Here is a tiitiffor people whtf put candles on their birthday cakes and do not have enough candle holders. I cut aluminum foil into little circles about .the size of a quarter. Then I punch a hole in the middle of the foil about the size of the candle. I put these foil circles on the cake and then insert the candles. The little pieces of foil will 'cup" up and prevent the wax from dripping on the cake Nancy D. LETTER OF THOUGHT Dear Heloise: No one should ever make the remark: "I' don't have any Wends." They should stop and think "Am I friendly .myself?" Oldster Dear Heloise: When washing walls or floors, I rinse the dirty sponge mop or sponge in clear water before putting it back into the cleaning solution mixture. This keeps the solution from being diluated and becoming dirty, and the last part of the cleaned surface will look as good as the first part cleaned. I also use plenty of clean cloths to dry the surface, and this helps prevent streaking. A Reader Dear Heloise: I almost always use dry skim milk for all of my creaming, etc. So the other day when I was mashing potatoes, instead of adding milk I just left a small amount of water in the potatoes (instead of pouring it all off), and then added some dry skim milk, the butter, then the salt and pepper, and beat them. They were delicious. By using this method, there is no necessity for warming the milk, which most people say they have to do in order to have good mashed potatoes! Mrs. E. S. Muller Almost every recipe book says never add cold milk, but hot milk to potatoes. You have hit upon a terrific idea. This one — brings my own good wishes straight from my heart.
