Hints From By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I wonder if other readers have found as many uses as I have for those wonderful plastic bags from the drycleaners? We cut them into small strips and use the strips to tie plants to the stakes in our garden. The plastic will give a little, not cut the stem of the plant, and is practical„ ly invisible. I use the bags to wrap items to be put in storage . . . such as tooks, picture albums, lampshades, etc. The bags protect them from dust and moisture. We use them as drop-cloths before painting, as the paint will not seep through the plastic as it sometimes does when using newspapers. We slip our folding lawn chairs into them for storing in the fall, and put them on the rafters (out of the reach of children) in the garage. Keeps dust out of the canvas and plastic seats. I could go on and on, but just thought I would mention the uses which others might not have tried. Bernice Holmes Dear Gals: Bernice has listed some wonderful uses for the drycleaning bags, but I want to CAUTION you again: Keep the bags out of the reach of children, and when you are ready to discard them, knot them up TIGHTLY so that a child cannot untie them.

The scrap was very inexpensive because it was the piece they had cut out to leave space for a sink when laying a Formica counter top. Reader Dear Heloise: I feel I must share this gem with all of your readers: I sewed a piece of ribbon, about two inches long, just inside my granddaughter's bonnet, at the back of the neck. Now, the bonnet can be hung on a hook or over a coat hanger. I only wish I had thought of this idea when my boys were small and wore caps. I tip my cup of tea to all you wonderful coffee sippers! B. Cerwinsky Dear Heloise: In my experiences as a men's clothing salesman, I have seen a lot of innovations in men's suits, but I thought this one was the greatest: For security purposes, my customer had a zipper sewn across the inside pocket of his suit coat. He told me when traveling abroad, he keeps his passport in this pocket. Phillip Morris And, why wouldn't his be a wonderful idea for women who travel a lot, too? They could have a zippered pocket sewn inside their coats, and keep not only their passport and ticket, but also their traveler's checks or anything of value in this pocket. It's so easy to lose a purse, and this way they wouldn't have to worry about becoming stranded. Heloise Dear Heloise: To keep plants from falling or being blown off the ledge on your porch, I have put a long, thin nail (hammered it into the wood) in the ledge, and fit the hole of the flower pot over the nail. I find it very satisfactory. Mrs. T. G. Syndicate, Inc. Copyright, 1365, King Features Greensburg (Ind.) Daily News, Tuesday, Aug. 31,1965 PAGES EVER HAPPEN TO YOU?

Smith, Rushville, district manager of the Federal Land Bank of Louisville. Speaking on the subject, "To Open Doors, Pull and Push," Smith contended that "one must come alive and be alive to sell his ideas and himself." To illustrate his point the Rushville Lion took the word alive and broke it down, applying a term to each letter. For the letter A he used the word automation, stating thai through automation this country has stepped out of a century of stagnation and into a world of higher society and greater economics. Smith said that the letter L stood for legislation. He stated that it is the very essence of society and that when put to use in the proper manner it can and does bring many different civic improvements. Using the letter I to stand for imagination the speaker noted that without this "gift" the nation would not have the marvelous things that are taken for granted today. . Smith merely inserted the word vitalize for the letter V, stating that in too many instances man uses a crutch. For the letter E he used two words—enthusiasm and education. The speaker said that "we must apply both in order to bring us up to the standards that we want to live by." In closing his speech he offered this thought: "Do the best that you can, be proud of yourself, but remember that there is no indispensable man." Bob Hall, program chairman, introduced the speaker. Dyar Forkert, club president, announced a stag party at the Conservation Club Sept. 13. The club will not meet Monday night, Sept. 6, Labor Day. There were 31 members in attendance. Rotarians Hold Annual Steak Fry Rotarians held their annual steak fry Monday night in the shelter house at the City Park.

GREENSBURG, INDIANA A Subsidiary of American Realty Service Corporation, Memphis, Tennessee © COPYRIGHT 1868 BY REALTY For New» Items Here Call 663-4622, ask for Doris Vanflertur Fashions Of 1950 Revived PARIS (DPI)—Designe. -iu- bert de Givenchy has designed a classic, country club look for women who can't wear the vampy, "geometric" young fashions. Right out of the late '40's and '50's and into Givenchy's winter collection press showing Monday went fitted waistlines, blouse-like tops with football shoulders or raglan sleeves, cartwheel hats, double strands of pearls, gored skirts, etc. Both suits and coats retained a narrow look excep* for the high, round shoulder- or batwing armholes. There wasn't a loose, "sack" dress in the house. If his daytime and evening dresses were not belted, they fitted through the waist like wallpaper. He kept his dress silhouette either fitted princess style, or a narrow skirt topped by a blouse- like heavy top with bat-wing sleeves. Givenchy's hemlines were at mid-knee, conservative for Paris. But he succumbed to the "leg interest" craze. Cocktail dresses often were hemmed with feathers. One floor-length white evening gown was slit from floor to knee to show the mannequin's gold-colored lacy stockings. The designer's daytime coats were a riot of bright orange, green and purple with double rows of black buttons. But black dominated /ate day and evening wear. One bla&k satin short evening dress had suspender straps that fastened with big white buttons in back. Sticking to Givenchy's 1950ish revival, the dress had a fitted bodice, cap sleeves and billowing 'belleshaped skirt. • ifrom Our JHLES Rites at Columbus For Scott Demaree COLUMBUS, Ind.—Scott Allen Demaree, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs Earl Demaree of Columbus, diec at 12:15 a. m.
