POLLY'S POINTERS By Polly Cramer DEAR POLLY - I clean paint brushes in a large can that has an attached lid. Let the brushes stand until clean and when ready to remove from the cleaning solution, close the lid as much as possible and slowly pull the brushes out. You will not have to squeeze this excess liquid out by band. - JIARUNNE DEAR POLLY - A small piece of foam rubber carpet padding makes a wonderful typewriter pad. It not only protects the table surface but keeps the typewriter from slid-i LOANS 5/, % C*1L NO ms NO CHARGES NO POINTS SWJUnU MORTGAGE CORPOMTIOM lOAN COmSPONOENTS K>lt THt NonrawtsiBN MUTUAL ure NS.

My elderly mother hates ad dressing envelopes as her handwriting is shaky and hard to read. Every time I send her a package, a bunch of stamped envelopes, addressed to me and other members of the family, is included. She especially appreciates them and I hear from her more often.—MRS. D.L.S. DEAR POLLY - Those who have more than one teen-ager who goes out at night should leave a light on that can be seen from the parents' bed room. The last youngster to come home should turn out the light. The parents can then tell when everyone is in without getting up to check, or worse still, worrying about it. — MRS. E. M. L. DEAR POLLY — ^Vhen making covered buttons, fold the material in eighths and it will be easy to cut a circle for the covering. Baste closely around the edges leaving a couple of inches of thread on each end.

This it far easier than trying to smooth fabric over tha small prongs for the purpose. -POLLY DEAR POLLY - When my twin grandchildren were bom their mother put fingernail pot ish on the big toenail of one so she could tell them apart. There was no chance of one getting two baths or being fed an extra time. To help keep ours a closely knit family, we use a round robin letter. Each person writes a letter and sends it on to the next one in a prescribed order. When it comes home again, each person takes out his OTO letter and puts in a new one. My specialty is saving my 0H7I letters when they come back. I put them in a file to make a nice diary of family doings.—MRS. B. H. A. DEAR POLLY — My bus band taped a strip of sand paper on the back of our towel Ijar, next to the wall and with the rough side out. Now the towels stay on the bar instead of on the floor.-MRS. C. G. DEAR POLLY - I have four children away from home and three still with us. I never seemed to have time, to write as much as they all wanted to hear about home and local happenings until I hit on the idea of addressing and stamping four packs of envelopes on a Sunday. I keep a writing tablet and pen on the top of the stove .and write while I am gettmg 'the evening meal: I have never failed to get a letter off to one of them smce I started this. The letters are done in minutes that were wasted and I am writing this the same way. -JIBS. V. K. DEAR POLLY - I have some suggestions that might help Mrs. A. C. G. with her Cub Scout projects. My Cub gave me his picture (the den mother could take snapshots of the boys) in a frame he had .made. He also gave me a plate jon which he had glued plastic flowers and leaves and then sprayed all over with gold I paint It hangs on a plate hanger on the wall for an attractive decoration. Trays are also nice for the boys to make out of plywood that they shellac or varnish, and then glue rope around tho edges. A design could be painted in the center or the entire tray could be painted a gay color.—MRS. A.M. DEAR POLLY — To anchor blouse that rides up, cut twill tape the length of your waist measurement plus one inch. Stitch the center of the tape to the center back of the blouse at the waist line. Stitch a hook and eye to the ends of the tape. When >-ou dress, fasten the tape around your waist and your blouse will stay put — MRS. J. E. 3L Chorcool brazier serves OS planter The usefutaess of an old charcoal brarier, preferably the three legged type on wheels, doesn't necessarily end when a replacement unit is purchased. This type brazier can have a second life as an attractive planter for display on the patio or in the house. To adapt it to this use, remove all grease and rust, and then spray paint it to suit.
