Robin Ann Flint, Glen Hansen United in Marriage at Fenton Mr. and Mrs. Glen Hansen POLLY'S POINTERS Persistent Salesmen Housewife's Pet Peeve By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with door-to-door salesmen who come to the door and keep bugging you and insisting on coming in the house to demonstrate their product even though you say you are not interested. One encyclopedia salesman did get in. When mother told him she thought the price was high he told her she cared nothing for her children so we had to almost kick the guy out.—DELORES Polly's Problem f DEAR POLLY—Recently I bought a one-size-fits- H all nylon body suit. After several washings the zip- 1$ g per puckered and got so stiff that it has ruined the § clinging shape of the suit. I would appreciate some „,. advice as to what I can do with this.—ALICE DEAR POLLY—I think June could remove the perspiration odor from her foam rubber pillows and mattress by filling an empty window spray bottle with vinegar and LIGHTLY spraying the items to be deodorized and then letting them dry.—MRS. C. H. K. DEAR POLLY—Like June's boys, mine are profusely sweaty sleepers and plastic mattress covers under the cotton sheets will protect the mattress but aggravate the sweating. When changing the boys' beds I spray the mattresses with an aerosol disinfectant and then let them air for a few hours. The foam rubber pillows can be washed in cold water at a gentle speed or by hand and bleach can be added to the first rinse to disinfect and deodorize. They will need a couple of rinsings. Sun will do as well as the bleach if they are air-dried.—HOLLY DEAR GIRLS—The Cleanliness Bureau says when washing foam rubber pillows the machine should run only five minutes and also ONLY five minutes for each rinsing. To wash by hand, put the foam pillow (in a case, of course) in a deep tub full of warm water and enough detergent so suds stand up. Press pillow down and let spring back. Do this time and time again to push the suds through the pillow or use a plumber's plunger. When water gels dirty, remove FOAM RUBBER PILLOW the pillow. Repeat process. Rinse with plenty of clean water and squeeze out well with an up and down motion. Put between two bath towels and press down to blot out as much water as possible. DO NOT put foam rubber pillows in the dryer. Dry by fastening pillowcases with clothespins to an outside line in a breezy spot. This takes time DO not expect to use pillows that night.—POLLY THE LOCKHORNS @ "WHEN LORETTA SAYS SHE"5 Pf?EAMING OF A WHITE CHKISTMAS, SHE MEANS ERMINE. 1 ' "I SPENT THE WHOLE I7AV TRANSFERRINS MONEY* FROM SANK TO BANK."

SURVIVE Donald E. Hoffman P. O. Box 1203 Spencer, Iowa 51301 BY JUNE STEINBORN Extension Home Economist Emmet & Dickinson Counties By now Santa is surely packed and ready to take off on this yearly trek. Oh, I hope you've all been good this year— it's a little late to get on his list now. Isn't it great not to have to worry about the weather—Santa always gets through— remember he has Rudolph! EVERYWHERE YOU GO this time of year, you hear the lovely Christmas songs. It's a beautiful background that really sparks the Christmas spirit. One of our favorites has always been "Til be Home for Christmas." This year those poignant words are almost more than we can bear. This will be our first Christmas without our Susan. We realize many, many of you readers are also having a first sad Christmas. But as impossible as it may seem, there will still be the traditional Christmas in our homes — the tree — presents — family and friends and Christ­ mas cheer as usual. Those dear ones who are absent will be with us every minute in our thoughts and hearts while we celebrate the birthday of the Christ Child. FOR A YEAR I'VE HAD many a good chuckle over this story—now it seems that time to share it with you. Every Christmas Eve at our church we have a delightful family hour. Everyone comes from babes in arms to oldsters. Reverend Wirtz always has a short presentation for the little folks- very informal — involving them with questions concerning the Christmas story. Last year one of his questions was, "Who came to see the baby Jesus bearing gifts?" They settled that question in short order; all agreed, "The Three Wise Men." But when he asked what gifts each Wise Man brought, that took a little more pondering. Finally one small voice called out, "Gold." A little later another voice came— "Myrrh." It was the third gift that seem­ ed to stump them. When we were almost convinced they needed help with that one, a little voice settled the matter quite adequately, to the delight of all, as he called out from somewhere in the crowd— "FRANKENSTEIN." PAUL AND I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND TO ALL OF YOU A MOST BLESSED AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!
