No more sudsy water running to your elbows.—Elizabeth DEAR POLLY—The elderly who like to cook but- sometimes CARD-CARRYING gamesters would enjoy staying home to play in this recreation room. And the keeper of the house would enjoy the easy maintenance of the Armstrong flooring and the sound-absorbability of the acoustical ceiling. FOR YOUNG NATURALISTS i Why Hot a Crash Pod of Home Wh ere Teen Can Do Own Thing? By CAROLYN S. MURRAY There's a decided movement toward home-oriented recreation, and part of the credit could go to advocates of the natural life. We usually label these advocates as hippies and longhairs, but in addition .to the young naturalists who dress in an unconventional way, there are dozens and hundreds of equally young idealists who reject the plastic world of the expense- account adults. The drinks-before-d i n n e r, wine-through-dinner and super- heavy meals prepared with arti- j ficial preservatives really doi turn this generation off. and its) the wise parent who realizes this | and makes an effort to give these youngsters some alternatives. The home-based alternatives are many. HEART OF SPACE 'Why not devise a crash pad right at home where your teenagers and college students can function at an independent! level? A mini-kitchen with sink and essential plug-in appliances would be an asset. This cook center needn't take up more space than a closet, or it could be the heart of the space. An underdeveloped basement room or garage could be fitted with a few wilder mattresses. The youngsters will find interesting fabrics or some Indian rugs, posters and even paintings to their liking. We so seldom! give young adults control over their environments, it's a sur-j prise to find out how knowledgeable they are about comfort and good design. If you'd like to set a pattern of home-based recreation for some of the younger children and for adults in the family, try planning a room around a particular theme. The one illustrated today leans heavily on playing card motifs and actually uses some old decks of cards as an unusual border trim just below the ceiling. The ceiling tiles give good acoustical qualities'to the room: flooring lightens the workload the day after! But the theme could be outer space, model airplanes, racing cars, photography, music-making, travel or family memorabilia. Remember to provide good lighting for-the various kinds of I ing, rap sessions, dancing. activity. A badly lighted room will' drive potential users away quicker Uian any other factor. Good lighting is not necessarily bright light; it means the right lightfor the moment whether it iometimes, use offbeat light, such as a series of projected images playing on a plain wall or ceiling. The family slide projector works beautifully for such alight in motion effect. Set it on be card playing, television view- automatic and let it rip! forget an ingredient might try my method. Consult the recipe, get out everything needed and put on the counter where you are working. NOTHING FORGOTTEN As an ingredient is used immediately return that one thing to its proper place and when you are finished each container is back in place and nothing has been forgotten.— Forgetful DEAR GIRLS—I am sure you will agree that this is a mistake not confined to the elderly. Nothing' can be more exasperating then putting a cake in the oven and remembering something that had not been added. I once forgot the baking powder in a birthday j cake.—Polly DEAR POLLY—When -the blades on my food mixer broke, my husband put one beater in his drill and used it to stir, paint. This did a beautiful job! and saved time and patience, too.—Mrs. C.J.K. j DEAR POLLY—Margaret said she had trouble crocheting sprinkle a bit.of talcum powder, over them, close the 'bag and swoosh them before crocheting.—D.M.S. D E A : R POLLY-Margaret wanted to know. how to clean the hook she is using to crochet plastic, bread wrappers. Every so often, .1 lightly sand my wooden hook with fine sandpaper. I find a wooden hook is far better-to use for this than a plastic one.—Mrs.jR.K. DEAR POLLY—Our cat wet our built-in broadloom and a friend suggested washing the area with an-ammonia solution which I did and it improved things but some odor. persists. Is there any other remedy or shall I keep on using the ammonia solution? Also I would like a recommendation for removing .underarm perspiration odors-from woolen suits. Is there a one-shot remedy or is this a matter of keeping at it?—Mrs. J.T. DEAR POLLY-If customers pushed grocery carts left in [the number of rolls of wallpaper parking lots back to the store (needed for a room on the back when they go shopping, many a nicked car would .be avoided of a picture hung in the newly papered room.

Let it stand awhile and the silver comes right off when rubed with an old soft' cloth. T:ME SAVER Girls, don't forget to record DEAR READERS—I found repeating the application of salt and vinegar helped in removing the silver and mine required the use of a small sharp knife for careful scraping off.—Polly You. will rsctivi < doltir If Petty uses your f«verif§ homemikliig MM, Pit Peeve, Polly's Problem er wlu- lion to > problem.

One of the leading flour manufacturers is »ow including a Basic 4 Menu planning guide in simple, easy-to-follow form to assist consumers with the important task-of balancing family m«al* daily. You may have to acquire a taste for these unusual products, especially if you eat them as srJacks. The manufacturer recommends that we add them to numerous recipes from appetizer* to vegetable dishes, and even baked products such as biscuits. No refrigeration is necessary forliiese un-roeatables. These two new products on the market taste like a spicy pepperoni and * milk sausage ... they are certainly protein products like dried meat bits, but they are just reasonable f acsimtlies, not meat. Like the familiar bacon . bits that have been on grocer's shejves for some time, they are really Textured vegetable products. Protein is extracted from vegetables {such as soybeans, wheat) and spun into fibers. Other ingredients are added and further processed to obtain the desired texture, color and flavor. £«ting Patterns Form Early Why are some people eating aH the time? Tfi'ey are probably following a family pattern they grew up with, Sna eking has a place, if it doesn't crowd out neds, and if it keeps certain limitations. When you are thinking of snack, especially for small children, think of mUlc, small pieces of fruit, cat-up raw vegetables, cheese cnbes, crackers spread with cottage cheese or peanut butter, and cereals. These snacks carry their weight in food value. To assure.good eating patterns later on, it is probably wise for mothers to keep fairly close watch on family snack habits. Expect a considerable drop in the food budget when macks are more carefully controlled. V50A ?!««$•!*•* Lilt fwOefefer Apples Applesauce Apple juice Pork Fresh pears .
