Woman SOUR DOUGH - now this is something you don't often hear about this day and age. The early day prospector was sometime called a "Sourdough" because of his habit of carrying a fermented dough used as a leaven in making bread or pancakes while he was out on the trail. When Geraldine Rowley and her husband, Keith, were visiting their daughter, Jackie, Mrs. Jim Higgs, at Wayne City, 111. last summer, Jackie had a sour dough starter that she had been given by a homemaking teacher there. She gave some to her mother who is still making bread, rolls, coffee cake, etc. from the dough, and she, too, has given a "start" to relatives and friends. The "starter" will die if it is not "fed" twice a week, and a jingle she received with hers says . . . "Feed me every Wednesday and Saturday or I will die. Do not use me the same day you feed me. Take out what is needed before feeding. Never let the dough get down less than 1 cup. FEED: 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup sugar. She wants proof of adultery By Abigail Van Buren around with another woman our home installed there. The suspicion is driving me out of my mind.

The child found a small she stnoJ n !"? ^ ?* W3nting l ° " imitate " her mother, she stuck the broken glass into her eye, and subsequently the child became blind in one eye. You may think this is worth passing on, Abby. LINDA DEAR LINDA: Indeed I do. Thank you tor writing. -,-n. A , BBY: My son> who was ta coUe ge. had an affair with his girl and she became pregnant.

This is what hurts: His ex-wife lets the child [now five years old] come to visit me and this child tells me that his mother sleeps with her boy friends. My son. has found that this is true. Should he go before the school board where she teaches and tell them the life she's living? I promised my dead wife I would educate our son. Please help me to make the right decision. WORRIED FATHER DEAR FATHER: Educate your son if yon are able Giving the mother o( your grandchild a black eye, or causing her to lose her job, if that is what you would hope to accomplish, wouldn't help your son any. CONFIDENTIAL TO "CONCERNED FRIEND": Don't tip off the new girl friend. If he is as big a heel as you say he is, let her find out for herself. She will regard your "wising her up" as an exercise in sour grapes. Besides, one girl'i banquet can be another girl's crumbs. What's your problem? You'll feel better if y*u get it off your chest.

I would like a substantial discount on the following: ;, The tour group was taken by ^issai^fronj^ew^ Y )9 rk^ yk§enva,<-Switzerland for several >-.i Clays' of -briefing'and orientationf" • | before traveling on into Africa. There were 65 Boy Scouts aboard the plane to Switzerland, which started the trip out on a lively note. Leona made it a point to see all of the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, before starting foreign travel. A year ago she went to the Orient and right now Russia is at the top of her list for the next country's visit. READ THE WANT ADSI LEONA SMITH has many treasures gathered from her trips through the years. One of the most beautiful is from Taiwan a solid brass replica of a Temple bell, very ornate in design The native doll is made of straw and closely resembles the African dancers she saw last summer. Her first grade students must surely find their Social Studies class interesting when she can show them so many things directly from the different countries. Algona Pub- When askedhow come she chose '; Africa for her travels last ^ summer, ^Leona Smith,, quickly f answered, "It is one-ofthecoun-" tries my first grade students'at the Bertha Godfrey School study about in their Social Studies, and I became interested enough to want to go there and see it for myself". The preliminary preparations for the trip were far more detailed than for any other trip Leona has taken. She \vas required to have leuers from her banker, doctor and Chief of Police and she had to go to Des Moines for the Yellow Fever inoculation. A malaria preventive is taken prior to the trip and for several weeks after returning home. July and August are the winter months there, with the mornings and evenings cool enough to require a wrap. There is no twilight in Africa. The sun comes up, shines with exceptional brilliance, even in the winter months, and when it is time to go down, it just disappears. Consequently' a flashlight is a welcome addition to your luggage. French is the predominate language spoken and she found the food delicious. Fruits were used mainly for dessert, with no ice cream, cake or pie served. Many beautiful things carved from ivory were displayed in the markets and the merchants expect you to bargain for what you wish to purchase, not just pay the price they originally ask, without a "haggle". Their vegetables are beautiful, but the dried caterpillars "left her cold". The colorful fabrics were lovely, but carried a tag revealing "Made In Japan". In the churches they visited, Swahili was the language spoken by the natives. There were always several choirs and the music was beautiful, even though no musical instruments were used. It is hard to imagine, even when you can see them in the pictures she showed, of ant hills higher than a man is tall and built substantial enough to be walked on by humans. They are honeycombed inside, but not to the point of collapsing easily. In one picture steps had been carved on the outside so people could walk up and look around the countryside. The size of the ant does not coincide with the size of its hill, however. They also have a carnivorous ant, but Leona was fortunate enough not to come in contact with that variety. Buses with tops which could be opened up were used for the tours out in animal country. This way the tourists could stand up and get a better look.
