Miss Sharon Rissing Polly's Pointers . . . By POLLY CRAMER ;. DEAR POLLY-I have found 1 that a small steel knitting needle is better than a knife to loosen a cake baked in a tube pan. The needle slips around the rim and the center tube without tearing the cake edge.—A.M.H.

WEBER'S GIFT SHOP 149 East Main Ion seems to catch and hold the dust.—G. C. DEAR POLLY-Ever think of licking the envelope rather than the stamp? Try it next time you mail a letter and you will not have the taste of glue on your tongue. Rubber stair treads come in handy for all sorts of things. Tacked to wooden swing seats they provide a dandy non-skid surface, prevent splinters and dry off easily after a rain. Before you drive a picture hook in a papered wall, cut a V-shaped dart in the paper and gently peel it back. Then if at any time you decide to remove the hook, you can paste the paper back and the hole will not show.—MRS. R.L.R. DEAR POLLY—Spray your favorite cologne or perfume on tablet blotters. Place one blotter in your lingerie drawer and another with your sweaters. The scent will cling to the garments. An ice cream scoop which measures one-fourth cup is handy for dieters who must count calories.—MRS. P.M.W. DEAR POLLY—Small children lose pieces to games so easily. If a "mover" (a piece to show one person's place on the board) is lost, I find a golf tee turned upside down makes a wonderful substitute. They come in all colors, too.—H. G. GIRLS — Grownups could put this idea to good use, too. Children aren't the only ones who lose parts of games.— POLLY DEAR POLLY — If you put masking tape over the quarter round baseboard molding when you paint a wall you will keep paint from dripping on tacked- down carpeting. Also this tape is good for removing carpet fuzz and dust in the corners where broom and sweeper cannot reach. The tape peels off easily, taking the dirt with it.-MRS. R. G. H.

A nice, easy look for museum visiting or a Sunday afternoon walk is this wide wale skimmy (center), with side tab belts and horizontal panel front. Perfect for the first party of the fall season is the old favorite A-line (right) in a new guise. The pinwale is all prettied up with the addition of imported ribbon trim. By HELEN HENNESSY NEW YORK (NEA) — When the school bell rings in September, corduroy will dutifully march back to the classroom. But with the aid of such designers as Scaasi, Bill Blass, Sophie and Bill Atkinson, who have created children's col­ lections for fall, it has been propelled into the front ranks as a dress-up fabric as well. One of the reasons for this is that "shape" is most important in children's clothes this year, and corduroy supplies the body required. "The Shape" is almost anything that doesn't have a nip­ ped in, clearly defined waistline. In dresses, this means A-lines, H-lines, skimmies and shifts, the Empire look and hip-touching overblouses. This time around, children will be dressed to look their age rather than miniatures of their elders. There is much simple elegance an their fashions, and as more and more top designers go into children's wear, fine touches are replacing gaudy gimmicks. For dressy wear, pinwale comes in for its share of the limelight in crisp berry reds and handsome pastels which have the feeling of Victorian elegance. The sportive look is represent­ ed, too, for the school set and is especially good in wide wale corduroy. And riding in on the crest of the sportive wave for youngsters are flat shoes with grown-up styling instead of the classic Mary Janes and hats that are styled to go farther afield than church on Sundays.

PAIR BOOTERY KNOX COUNTY DEMOCRATIC ICE CREAM SOCIAL WED., AUG, 7 Park Drive Dairy Whitesboro & Losey St$. Serving starts at 5:30 CAKE or PIE and ICE CREAM 25c Also Hot Dogs, Potato Salad and Baked Beans EDITOR'S NOTE: Madame Chiang, the Vassar-educated Chinese beauty who has become a legend in her lifetime, still lives on the island outpost of Formosa with her husband, the Generalissimo. What is her life like these days? An Associated Press writer visited her recently to make this report. By DORIS KLEIN TAIPEI, Formosa (AP) — Mme. Chiang Kai-shek ducks her head, smiles and asks, "Please, don't make me sound too stuffy." Minutes before, eyes flashing, a long, lacquered fingernail stabbing the air, she snapped her determination to drive the Communists from the China mainland- soon. Then she insists her visitor put down her pen and try some tea and Chinese cake — "I'm afraid it should be eaten warm." It is the old magic — that mixture of lash and lotus blossom which makes Mme. Chiang, at 65, an Asian legend, far from retirement. With her Generalissimo husband, she battled warlords, Japanese invaders and Communists for more than 35 years until the Communists banished their Nationalist forces from the mainland in 1949. For nearly 13 years, the Generalissimo and Mme. Chiang have reigned on this island outpost "not one-third as large as our smallest province." Suitcase Packed "I lived out of a suitcase on the mainland," says Mme. Chiang. "Here, • I stay in one place." But the suitcase is packed for the return trip. A fire blazes in the living room of Scholar's Grove, the Chiangs' small villa set beside a botanical garden in Taipei. The flames glint off the mother-of-pearl inlaid rosewood furniture, antiques which the Generalissimo shipped out before the Communists reached their home in Shanghai. Over the fireplace hangs a painting by Mme. Chiang, a new-found hobby. But it isn't painting Mme. Chiang wants to talk about. Chain-smoking mentholated cig- Madame Chiang arettes, she speaks what is on her mind: "Temporary failure does not mean eventual defeat. One must be ready for the next opportunity. "China is ready now for our return to the mainland. . . . "The Communists themselves have admitted more cases of subversion by the people than ever before. And there has been the famine. Hatred and famine and inhumanity are driving more people from the Communist mainland than ever before. "Even some of the Communist cadres are breaking up. They feel they have been deceived." No Big Revolt Still, Mme. Chiang admits, there have been no large scale revolts against the Communists. "They have nothing to • fight with," she says. "The Communists have taken away even brass sinks and metal work on windows and doors. They have nothing left but wooden clubs and bamboo sticks. . . "The United States, must realize that this is an internal Chinese problem. "Russia won't i come to the aid of the Chinese Communists. With the present conflict between (Chinese Communistileader) Mao Tze- Tung) and Khrushchev, Mao is afraid of Khrushchev. He feels Khrushchev is a deviationist. "I don't think that there would be a single Russian soldier — and no Russian, aid — provided the fighting does not extend to the areas adjacent to Russia. We will have to establish our selves in certain portions of the country as we go along. And drive the Communists back at the same time." She puts down her cigarette. The diamond circlets on her black brocade cheong san glint in the firelight. * She looks 20 years younger. When the Generalissimo and his troops evacuated to Formosa, Mme. Chiang was in the United States. She returned to join her husband. Her role today: "I still help my husband. "I speak my mind, but not publicly. I do not think it is right to speak my mind unless in doing so it helps a cause." Despite the drums of war, life is quieter on Formosa. Mme. Chiang took up painting five years ago. Childless in her 35-year marriage, she is active in the Hua Hsing orphanage. Her Chinese Women's Anti-aggression League started it for children whose parents were killed when the Nationalists evacuated the Tachen Islands in 1955 as the Communists closed in.
