-.-DEAR ASBY 'Starving Kids Won't Get Second Dinner Invitation OEAK.ABBY: :We entertained a family of six at our summer place last weekend. -The children ranged from 9 years old to 17. The children invaded by kitchen, helping themselves at all hours" to ; whatever they found in my refrigerator. By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN myself for not having found some way to control the situation. Needless to. say, they will never be" invited back. How would you have handled it?— Appalk'd DEAR APPALLED: Probably much the same way you handled -(or didn't handle) it. The temptation to teach those ill- mannered children something about manners and consideration for elders must have been overwhelming. But because their parents were present and made no attempt to discipline them,-it would have been extremely awkward for you to have done Abby The first day they ate every- 1 -thing I had planned to serve for - rthe entire weekend.- The _ 18" 'year -old drank nine cans of pop 'in one afternoon. I served a buffet supper. The children got into line first and loaded their plates, and came -Ihack for seconds before' some of ;- : tbc adults could help them•» selves. I. I -was appalled. But worse * than that, I was disappointed in so. It's history decision never to now. invite Your them back is understandable.

Ha!— Just Plain Folks in Mpls. DEAR FOLKS: Move over. You have plenty of company. DEAR ABBY: I wrote you a letter several years ago. I was another' angry teen-ager, complaining because my parents didn't trust me, wouldn't let me grow up, bleach my hair, wear a lot of makeup and date older boys when I was young. Theyl seemed to want to keep me a baby forever. I hated them for being so unreasonable. Since' then I have seen many letters in your column so much like my own. Then' I got into a serious automobile accident and suffered neck and back injuries that partially paralyzed me for many long months. At first they said I'd never walk again. My friends flocked to sea me while I was in the hospital, but when I went home and was confined to a hospital bed, they forgot me. ' painful process of learning was so discouraging and agonizing. The two friends who never let exchanging the accumulated hardness ions with a new supply of sodium ions. Regeneration normally takes from one to two hours. REGENERATION GOES ON The majority of softener systems regenerate at periodic intervals . pre-set on a. clock timer. This is determined at installation by the hardness of the water, the tank capacity and. the rate of consumption. If the usage rate changes, such as back, I had plenty of time to think, and it was then I realized I had been the unreasonable one, and my parents had kept a watchful eye on me because they loved me. 1 am glad I found out how wonderful parents can be before it was too late. We are closer than ever now. Oh, by the way, I never mailed that letter to you. I've kept it all this time in my top drawer.—Wiser Now •>- - - — ' a bed of resin beads that contain "•4 sodium ions.

ASK THE COOK Dufch Stew with Tapioca A Favorite Dinner Treat Waldsboro, Maine. This town was By NAN WILEY DEAR NAN: Recently you had a letter from a Pomona lady about "Lazy Day Stew." My guess is that I was eating it before either of you ladies had much of an interest in cooking. I know my mother got this recipe from the mother of one of her girlhood friends from settled by German families many years ago. The seacoast section was called Dutch Neck, hence the name of the stew I will copy from my mother's old cookbook. She passed away 38 years ago and I know I was eating that stew around 1910. Her "Dutch Stew" called for 2 pounds of stew meat, % cup tapioca, % can tomatoes, 1 can peas, I onion cut fine, 1 small carrot, 4 whole cloves, salt and pepper to taste. Put all in a beanpot with water to cover and bake 4 hours. That was all there experiment a bit and, while went into the oven a short time sticking to the meat, tapioca k ° f " ^ ~ iwnr« ennnor —V.A and peas as per the original, I use a whole can of tomatoes, 2 medium onions and a couple of carrots sliced in 1-8 inch wafers. Also, I'm sure the tomatoes were chopped. Cloves today do not seem to have the old time zing so I use 8 of them. Also, a small can of mushrooms adds to the goodness. But I go along with a slight braising of the cubed meat in a bit of butter and onions. Using 3 large iron fry pan for this makes a good place to mix the .whole batch! thoroughly and transfer it to thei beanpot. I drain off the 'surplus liquid from the peas before adding but use that to "top off" the beanpot, just barely covering the ingredients, adding more as cooking proceeds. I have no idea what, mother s oven temperature • was but I cook at 300-325 for 4 hours, trying not to let it boil over. before before supper.—Ed Andrews Thank you.
