BATTERTON'S West SideDruq Store Dear Heloise: Here is a Christmas card idea thought I should get off to you )efore I completely lose my mind in the last minute rush. . : Eacr year, as I address my Ihristmas cards, I type my avorite easy "recipe of the 'ear" on little index cards, and ihoot them along with my Christmas cards. You will be surprised who )u will hear from months later — after they have tried the recipe. This keeps a Christmas card from being so routine, doesn't it? Early Bird It sure does! I think your idea is great. Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: This little hint makes Christmas-happier for our children: " We have always encouraged them to select, pay for, and wrap their gifts for each other. After several years of watch-, ing these gifts being overlooked in favor of the bicycle, doll, etc., etc., and seeing the unhappiness this caused, we decided to allow the children to exchange their own special gifts to each other on Christmas Eve. Our children now look forward to Christmas Eve as much as they do to Christmas morning. Mrs. Joseph Sanford Dear Heloise: Since I am the "gift-wrapper" in our family, I am always looking for ways to make the job easier and more enjoyable. . . At Christmas time, my biggest problem was keeping scissors and pen at my fingertips, without having to search for them •each time they were needed. I solved my problem by tying a lengthy, different colored ribbon to each one, and hung them around my neck. Tony Fay Turtle Dear Heloise: Last Christmas a relative gave his wife an electric stove for Christmas — it was a toy stove! On it was a card telling her to select a real stove for herself.

They will reflect light, and make a very showy tree. Evelyn Page Dear Heloise: Before cutting dates, figs, gum drops, etc., for those holiday cookies, spread two or three tablespoons of granulated sugar on a plate. As you cut the dates, figs, or gum drops with your kitchen shears, roll each piece in the sugar. The pieces won't stick together, and will spreod out in the batter.

The battalion commander denied reports that his men had walked into a Communist ambush. He said they knew the Communists were in the area and were hunting them. He called the battle a "meeting engagement." But some American officers on the scene disagreed with ichuffer's account. ' "It was a big ambush, said ,t.

Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey said during .the weekend that there had been some confusion on the point because of a demonstration at Ann Arbor, Mich., which involved violations of the law. Some of the demonstrators were convicted of trespassing. The procedure in such a case Federal Reserve Board, which wants to raise interest rates. The board, an independent government agency, boosted its discount rate Sunday from 4 to 4.5 per cent. The discount rate is the rate banks have to pay when they borrow from the Federal Reserve. Banks are sure .to pass the higher borrowing charge along to businessmen and consumers. The board, which divided 4-3 over the move, said it acted to prevent inflation which could hurt the economy and price U.S. goods out of world markets. In addition to the discount rate, the board also raised the maximum, jate banks may pay on time deposits from 4 to 5.5 per cent. There was no change in the 4 per cent ceiling on savings deposits, however.

Leader Shoe Store West Side Square Decree Due Tuesday— Pope Set to Friday Meat Ban VATICAN CITY (UPI) — Pope Paul VI has prepared a Papal Bull permitting Catholics to eat meat on Fridays, it was reliably reported today. High-level Vatican sources said the pontiff will issue the decree Tuesday at a public session of the Ecumenical Council. Informants told UPI the decree lifts major fast and abstinence rules for all Catholics except monks, nuns and other members of religious orders. But the rules will still be maintadned for Good Friday, the Christmas vigil and one other major feast day, probably that of the Immaculate Conception on Dec. 8. , • Abstinence from meat on Fridays and some other holidays, a practice dating from the earliest centuries of the church, was always considered a man-made rule rather than a law. But it was binding on all Catholics. Abstinence and feasting on days appointed by the church is the second of six ".precepts of the church" which must-be observed by Catholics under pain of sin Under present law, abstinence is compulsory for all persons above seven years of age on all Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the vigils of the Immaculate Conception and Christmas. Council sources did not say how the papal decree would affect the law of fast—distinct from abstinence—under which Catholics can eat only one full meal during Lent, Ember days and the Vigils of Pentecost, the Immaculate Conception and Christmas. • •• •• • • •' The change in the abstinence rules had been rumored for some time. Early last month. Pope Paul asked the National Episcopal hierarchies of various nations to report to the council on ho'w their members felt about a possible change. There was no immediate indication ' whether' Johnson would restrict himself to words or whether he would take steps to offset the Federal Reserve Boards' move.
