Friday, December 30. 197? HOPK < AHK • STAR I 1 age Three Anthony family has reunion with fifty-two in attendance The children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of the late Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Anthony of Murfreesboro had a family reunion at the Sheraton Inn Monday evening. After pictures were made Mrs. Marion Mabry gave the invocation and a Finds Happiness Helping Children DEAR ABBY: Because of you, my Christmas was a lot merrier this year. Last year my husband drove me crazy sitting around the house doing nothing. He had just retired at age 65, was in good health, and didn't know what to do with himself. He'd worked hard all his life and never had time to cultivate any hobbies. 1 kiddingly suggested he write to you, and he did. You told him to offer his services to some volunteer group, and you named a few. He called the Crippled Children's Society, and they gave him the names of some handicapped children who needed transportation to and from the therapy clinic. He's never been happier. Aren't men peculiar? They'll listen to advice from a stranger, but just let their wives tell them the same thing and they'll say she's off her rocker. Thanks, Abby. You gave me the best Christmas present I've had in years. ANGIE DEAR ANGIE: Don't mention it. Greet your wonderful husband for me, and thank him for giving me this opportunity to remind others that they, too, can improve the quality of their retirement years by volunteering their services. Everybody can do something. DEAR ABBY: I may be old-fashioned, but I think it's in very poor taste to give a child money for Christmas. My mother-in-law sends my child a check every Christmas, and I get furious with her. I have been tempted to send it back or to send HER a check in the same amount. I feel if she can't take the time (of which she has plenty) to shop for her grandchild, she can keep her money. My child would be more impressed with a sack of jelly beans than he is with grandma's check. Should I tell her to forget it next year? FURIOUS DEAR FURIOUS: No. I think giving a child a check makes more sense than giving him a gift he feels he must keep (or worse yet, wear) because it's grandma's Christmas gift. You can't go wrong with money; the color is always right, and you don't have to worry about "fit"— it fits into any pocketbook. : My-problem is a. husband who expects me to keep up an active sex life while I'm pregnant. I've tried to tell him that being in this condition doesn't make me feel very seductive. Between heartburn, nausea, backaches, fatigue and swollen feet, not to mention the feeling that there must be ten babies in there beating on my ribs, spine and other vital organs, the one thing I don't feel is lust! This is my second pregnancy and I'm not looking forward to the upcoming fights. How can I explain to my husband that having sex, especially during the last stages of pregnancy, is not all that enjoyable? I don't expect complete abstinence, just a break now and then. Help me! PG in S.C. DEAR PG: You can explain it to your husband just as you've explained it to me, and in even more explicit language. Hate to write letters?

PARFAITS specials. and molasses cinnamon drops are kiddie Partitioned Room For More Space By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures In trying to find more space in the home for children or to give them more privacy for study as they grow older, many parents finally resort to a partitioned room. If the room's length is less than the height of its ceiling, it is not a good idea to divide it, suggests interior designer Alexandra Stoddard. It might create a cagelike feeling. Children really do not like high ceilings, she points out in the book "A Child's Place," which tells how to create a living environment for a child. She even suggests that parents might get a new perspective of a child's world by crawling about on the floor to see what small fry really see. •A long-time interior designer with the McMillen firm and mother of several youngsters, Mrs. Stoddard continues to decorate and passes on to the reader many of the problems she has encountered and her solutions. If you can't retain a window in each side of a space you may partition, perhaps your partition should not go all the way to the ceiling so that air can circulate freely. A strip of daylight fluorescent light might be added to the top of the partially partitioned wall to create a wash of light that might be a source of cheer on dark days. The fixtures, the kind you have seen under kitchen counters, come in stock sizes. A floor plan in scale will help you visualize how the space will look when it is diminished. Heat sources, electric outlets and closet locations should be considered before one proceeds. Each room should have a door even if it means more partitioning, Mrs. Stoddard advises. A narrow hallway — 26 by 30 inches wide — can provide a solution, an entrance to the new room even as it encloses the other space. If you create a separate hallway, add a graphic on one wall or paint the doors into the two rooms a bright, primary color, she suggests. If you plan to have painted floors in the new rooms, you might paint the hall floor area a contrasting color. A small hallway can be given character if it is painted in an Imaginative way. In the hall a child's first name or initials in big block letters might be printed vertically on his door. You can build a partition out of wood and sheetrock, using a wood frame and sheetrock for the walls. The frame can be laid out on the floor of the divided area with wood strips nailed into place. If the entire space has only one closet, you might build a closet in one corner for one child, she suggests. It could provide added charm. If the room is large enough you might decide to build a floor-to-ceiling wall closet with drawers, desk area and high storage for toys, equipment and luggage. You might remove a standard closet door that seems too wide for the new smaller space by removing its hinges and replacing it with two solid panels, one panel hinging on the left, the other panel hinging on the right. Wooden louvered half-door panels also come in many stock sizes that might be found at a lumber yard. A vertically installed woven blind is another space saver that may be used to replace a closet door. It can be drawn to one side or drawn from the center to each side. A closet light might be triggered to go off when the door closes, one way to teach a child to close the closet door. A temporary divider, a 4-by 8-foot plywood sheet on a wooden stand, might create interest as well as privacy. Ceiling tracks — from which you run a sliding woven wood blind or folding screens — may be used to divide a room. Avoid the solid track dividers for a child's room, however, because they block out light and air, she advises. Low room dividers can be functional as well for clothes even as they provide hooks at the child's level, another plus. Bookcases can also be used as room dividers. The kind of divider depends on how much privacy is needed. Mrs. Stoddard's philosophy is that a child's room can be planned from the beginning so that everything for the first 20 years is housed In one room, only not necessarily during the same period. Once you set up a basic plan, it should be easy to adapt it to the child's stages of growth in the one space. She tells how to develop a child's room for each of the main periods of the child's life, beginning with a baby's place and going on to 13 and the adult years.

By Aileen Claire NEA Food Editor Youngsters enjoy parties during the holidays as much as adults. Since most kiddies are at-home, it is a good time to whip up some treats for when their friends drop in. Holiday parfaits can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer and the cookie jar is just waiting for a new supply of molasses cinnamon drops. HOLIDAY PARFAITS 1</2 pints vanilla Ice cream 1 can (6 oz.) frozen fruit juicy red Hawaiian Punch concentrate, thawed and undiluted 1 can (8-1-4 oz.) crushed pineapple, well drained Vt teaspoon orange extract 2 tablespoons chopped nuts Spoon a small amount of ice cream into the bottom of each of four parfait glasses. Pour a little punch concentrate over it allowing it to seep down through any crevices. Add a little more ice cream and concentrate. Mix pineapple with orange extract and divide it among the glasses. Alternate ice cream and concentrate in each glass until full. Top with nuts. Freeze until serving time. Serve with long-handled spoon. Makes 4 servings. MOLASSES CINNAMON DROPS 2 cups sifted all-purpose Hour 1 teaspoon cinnamon '/« teaspoon ginger '/4 teaspoon cloves Vt teaspoon baking soda '/« teaspoon salt Vj cup butter or margarine Vt cup sugar 1 egg Vt cup light molasses Sift together dry ingredients; set aside.

(NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) For a quick salad use drained canned asparagus or green beans and marinate with French dressing. Arrange on lettuce and garnish with strips of pimiento. Delicious salad: sections of orange and-or grapefruit on ro- rnalne with Roquefort or blue cheese dressing. POLLY'S POINTERS Polly Cramer Suitcase smells musty By Polly Cramer POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY — I have a suitcase that was stored in the attic and has a musty smell I have not been able to get rid of. Any suggestions? Also, I would like to know what will take ink off a white purse. — LOLA. DEAR LOLA — You might fill your suitcase with crumpled up newspaper and leave closed for a couple of weeks. Other suggestions are a nylon stocking filled with cedar shavings (from a lumberyard) or baking soda in an open container. Sorry you did not say what material was used to make your purse. Hair spray should remove ballpoint Ink from vinyl, cuticle remover from leather (or rubbing alcohol if it is safe for the material). Test anything first. Our answer must necessarily be on the vague side as was your question. — POLLY. DEAR POLLY — When my sponge mop needs to be replaced I let it dry thoroughly and then with safety pins I secure two terry-type dish rags to the base of the mop. This gives me a perfect waxer for the liquid waxes and makes waxing as easy as mopping. When painting indoors I save those wooden stir sticks that so many paint stores provide and when the job is done I dip the remainder of the stick into the paint. Along with colored bread twists these make great hold-ups for my plants. Just stick stirrer in pot and fasten plant to it with the twists. - MRS. H.M. DEAR POLLY - I think I have help for Bonnie who has mildew on a bed sheet. When I have mildew on any clothes I soak that area overnight in milk and then wash as usual. I have never had to do this often but when I have it has worked. — KAYE. DEAR POLLY — I got rid of roaches by putting a coffee can in the garage close to the kitchen door and was surprised at the roaches in the can in the morning. Fill the can half full of water and they will drown in a few minutes. — ANNA. DEAR POLLY — To remove white water rings and spots from furniture make your own compound by using any brand of toothpaste and a little baking soda. I have never had it harm any furniture but you might test In an inconspicuous place. Dampen a cotton cloth and squeeze out any excess moisture, put a little of the mixture on the rag and rub the spot until it disappears. It may take from three to 15 minutes depending on how deep the spot is. Use a clean, dry cotton cloth to wipe away any compound that is left and then buff for luster. — MRS. S.E.R. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Downs, Y.C. Coleman and Jewel Dean Watkins dispensed hospitality. The hostess presented the brtde-etect with an electric appliance.
