He At the reception in the church is eJnpfoyediby Mobile City, Polly's Pointers By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY — Pictures, particularly family ones, are priceless and to be treasured by many for years to come but they lose their real interest if names, dates and where taken is not written on the backs. When you take a picture do take time to jot down these things on the backs. The day will come when the photographs will not be recognized. I recently received a box of photographs from an elderly aunt who is in bad health and lives far away. There are no names and dates on any of them but I know some are members of my family but who, when and where I do not know and probably will never know. What a priceless treasure if I could just identify those people.—VELMA Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY - I have a very old piece of slate (Wack) that is carved in the shape of a book but it is very dull looking. How can I brighten the surface to make this piece more attractive so it can be put out for display?-JAYNE DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with those who make disposable baby bottles. There is no way of knowing whether or not you are near the end of a roll unless the box is opened, Then it is still a guess. Why can't they put some mark on, say the 13th from the end, so a person would know right off there are only a dozen bottles left?—SANDY DEAR POLLY — This is for Jean who wants to help her elderly neighbor remove ink spots from her pink rug. If the spots have not been washed since the accident, she could soak them with turpentine, let it stay cn overnight and then wash out and rinse well.—EDITH DEAR GIRLS - While turpentine should not harm fabrics there are so many new fibers in clothes and rugs that I would recommend ALWAYS test an inconspicuous spot first. Do remember that an old spot is far harder to remove than a fresh one. Also, be careful of fire wren using turpentine,—POLLY DEAR POLLY - When doing crewel work or needlepoint the easiest way to thread your needle with wool is to cut a Central Congregational Church ICE CREAM SOCIAL Wed., July 25, 1973 Central Square 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Hand Dipped Ice Cream & Homemade Cake or Pie - 40c In cut of Jr»iJa—church butffl'i. piece of heavy paper about lVz- inches long and 1-inch wide and fold it in half lengthwise. Then you have a needle threader that can be used over and over. Place the end of the yarn inside the fold and slip the paper through the needle's eye. — MARY ANN DEAR POLLY - If Gwen will rub her mother's ivory jewelry with cotton that has been dipped in full strength lemon juice, I think she can remove the brown discoloration without fear of damage. — MRS. L. J. G. DEAR GIRLS — Of course, like most products Acre is ivory and there is ivory. A reliable jeweler advised me that both lemon juice and white vinegar are often used for cleaning ivory but suggested that a diluted solution first be tried and tested on an inconspicious spot. If all seems well, the strength or amount of the vinegar or lemon juice, whichever you are using, may be increased if necessary. For cleaning, only a soft toothbrush and dishwashing detergent will remove accumulated giime.-POLLY DEAR POLLY - I may have hope for Gwen if she is not able to remove the brown marks frcm her ivory jewelry. I learned in Alaska that they use forsilized ivory that has absorbed the earth colors in beautiful shades of brown. I have a few pieces of this fossilized jewelry and wished that my nat ural ivory beads matched my earrings. I stained them with brown dye. Ivory is porous and dees not take long to tint so keep a constant check for color. My necklace is a beautiful brown tone that is undistinguishable from my fossilized earrings 1 . After drying these thoroughly I sprayed mine with spray wax and they have the same shine as the earrings. This is only suggested as a treatment if all else fails and he brown spots remain. — JANET T.

Mrs. Eades is a graduate of Abingdon High School. Her husband attended school at Cash, Ark., and is employed at Gale Beads Telltales s Discards... Treasures s By JEAN BARNES Pick up a bead, a small thing - seemingly insignificant. Hold it to the light. Is it opaque or does the light filter through? Is it carved, enameled, woven or a piece of pierced stone? Beads have been important in the formation of man's culture since the beginning of re- — —— corded history. 1 factored in Europe for sale or Although beads today are used primarily for decorative and ornamental purposes, the earliest beads probably were contrived from small fossils and worn as amulets. In Egypt the word for bead was "Shasha." The syllable "sha" was the Egyptian word for "luck." The English word "bead" is derived from the Anglo-Saxon "bed" which means prayer. Beads have had religious significance for centuries. In Scotland, pensioners whose duty it was to pray for their benefactors were known as beadsmen. Almost everyone knows that the island of Manhattan was purchased with beads. As ,ah object of commerce beads preceded the exchange of coins for goods and since the Middle Ages beads have been manu- barter. Some specimens which might be included in a collection are beads made from a snake's spine, the rare black coral, cornelian, onyx, ivory, amber, cypress, pewter, enameled metals, jade, rose quartz, jasper, shells, sandlewood, seeds, glass. There are many ways in which a collection can be assembled. Beads can be collected for historical significance, artistic merit, religious interest, or as geological specimens.; The collector of beads will find very little reference material on the subject. Instead, research will have to be done on a variety of subjects and enthusiasts wild delve into the methods of manufacture, study the evolution of jewlery styles, probe the regions of commerce, history and religion.. A bead collection can be enriching. Mrs. Donna Kidwell, Wichita, Kan., began collecting beads by buying part of a collection from an estate. She is pictured fingering intricately carved Chinese beads from her collection.
