JENNIFER MEYERS feels and looks like the professional miniatbxe model in her black and white print maxi, but I think she ; secretly surmises it isn't the thing for tricycle riding. ; Other models for the show were Kathy Murphy, Ann Kollasch, Joann Hrubes, Mary Muehe, Jo Skogstrom and Marilyn Peterson. FASHIONS AND FABRICS for spring, two of the things a woman finds uppermost in her mind at this season, were modeled and discussed at the luncheon and style show held Friday at the Algona Country club. The gay spring scene, enjoyed by more than 200 ladies, was sponsored by the Home Economics Committee in Kossuth county. A colorful display of fabrics from the Eli and Walker Co. was discussed by George Brown, representative of that company, who told of their uses in the spring and summer fashion world. Eighteen garments from the most popular Simplicity patterns were modeled by Sister Mary Janet's junior and senior homemaking students from Garrigan High School, with children's fashions modeled by Erin MacDonald, Sheila Burns, Jennifer Meyer, Jo Skogstrom and Susan Godden. Also included in the style show were those who participated in a sewing contest held at Bomgaars in February; Mr. and Mrs. Mayland from Titonka, Debbie made a suit for her husband; Mrs. Joe Kollasch, Whittemore; Mrs. Sylvester Berte, LuVerne;' Mrs. Bob Gerber, Algona; Mrs; Larry Rochleau, Ft.

MODE-0-DAY DOWNTOWN - ALGONA PUNIC Hubby's family takes over social scene By Abigail Van Buren Ic 1»71 by Chlcato Trlbimt-N. Y. N«wi Syn*., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: My husband comes from a very large family and they are very clannish. The only social life anyone in that family knows is to get together with their relatives. They don't need any outsiders. I am not criticizing them, but I am not all that thrilled with a gathering of the clan every weekend for 16 years. The Women's Liberation thing got me to thinking. Why should we restrict our entire social life to my husband's family? I have met several interesting, attractive women my age who have invited me and my husband over, but we've never gone because my husband chills the deal. .. I have had it! I think more women could "liberate" themselves if they just told their husbands that they were through being pushed around. That's what I intend to do. Starting Monday! LIBERATED DEAR LIBERATED: Good! And. let me hear from you on Tuesday. A DEAR ABBY: I have been going with a wonderful ' Italian girl for the last two years. She not only has looks and personality, she is smart, thoughtful and kind. It's funny, I have no trouble writing this to you, but I can't tell her how I feel about her. That's my hang-up, Abby. She is always after me to tell her I love her, give her a compliment, or show some affection. I am just not the type I can't help it. I am no kid. I am 27 and she is 25. s r , •" She claims she loves Tine, but isn't love accepting a> ' person, the way he is? We were thinking of marriage but she says if I am like this before marriage, what would I be like afterwards? She says she needs to know that she is loved and appreciated. She IS loved and appreciated. Can 1 help it if I am not the lovey-dovey type? Am I wrong in just being myself? Or should I try to give out with the "I love you's" and compliments like most guys do? My friends say if I call it quits with her I'd be giving up a good thing. She doesn't smoke or drink and she's saving herself until marriage. NOT DEMONSTRATIVE DEAR NOT: Her needs are more normal than your hang-up. I suggest that you try to be more affectionate, and make a real effort to demonstrate your appreciation of her A woman can live without hearing that she's loved and appreciated, but she'll soon grow to resent you. Right now you're a poor match. Get with it, young man! DEAR ABBY: Am I wrong to be annoyed when a casual acquaintance asks me where I bought my dress, shoes, or some other article of clothing I happen to be wearing? Some even have the gall to ask me how much I paid for it! I pride myself on being a well-dressed woman. I shop in the best stores-not in bargain basements so it's not that I m ashamed to tell people where my clothes came from By the way, I always give them the information as pleasantly as possible even tho I am boiling inside. Maybe I'm too touchy, but I would like to know why so many women ask, "Where did you buy it?" OFTEN ASKED DEAR ASKED: They asked because they probably want to buy one like it-or similar. And possibly to get a lead on where to buy unusually good-looking clothes. I'd regard the "where" question as a compliment. "How much" is rude. DEAR ABBY: Why does everyone discriminate against fat people? I love to eat, and since I got this way eating in restaurants, I think the very least the restaurant owners can do is put in chairs that are reasonably comfortable for a fat person to sit on. When I have to sit for an hour and a half on a little dinky chair that's not big enough for all of me I m sore the next day. And while I'm complaining, I may as well mention booths that are so close to the table I can barely squeeze myself in. ^ Please print this. We fatties deserve a break.

Sue does take time for hobbles and enjoys reading, bridge and sewing - especially with the new knits. A SPHAGHETTI cooking trick is one that Sue always uses to keep from serving sticky spaghetti. Bring the salted water to a boil, add spaghetti and boil .for 2 minutes, stirring several times. Set the pan off the burn• er, cover and let set 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and rise, then add a small amount of butter. An Anderson favorite dish is to simmer the cocktail size smoked sausages for two hours in two cups of tomato juice.
