He added that one big problem that some couples come in just a few days before the wedding, not knowing the classes take a week to complete. The wedding cake is ordered, the church is reserved, invitations are out and the couple Ls stunned to find they have been denied permission to marry because tfaey have not attended the counseling sessions. In such cases the couple must either postpone the wedding or go out of the country to be married. Although nearly all pastors and churches conduct some type of marriage counseling sessions, as do many schools, few are considered adequate by Bergstrom. "So far, no school program In the country is adequate," he asserts. "And most clergy do pastoral counseling, but they don't get Into the family planning aspects of marriage.

Bergstrorr. says be is extremely pleased with the way the sessions are conducted aad em- ptaisizes that counsekfrs do not tell coupks toey should or should not get married nor that they should or should not use birth control. "We are only here to inform and encourage the young people to discuss these problems," be said. How many couples are denied permission to marry? Statistics gathered in a descriptive study of the teen-age marriage applicants in Fresno County from March 1 to Dec. 1 period indicate that of 454 total cases approaching Family Court, 205 were approved, 21 were denied consent, .14 were of questionable status and 194 couples did not return for the counseling sessions. The latter number is a mysterious statistic of grave concern to Bergstrom. "We don't know what happens to them," he said. "Some probably go elsewhere to be married, perhaps others change their minds and decide not to get married after all. We just don't know." The average male applying for court consent is 19.9 years old and the average female is 16.7 years old. The oldest male applying for permission to marry a minor was 38 years old and the eldest female was 25. The youngest male asking for court consent was 15 and the youngest female 13. The median income is $379 a month. Of the total 454 applications, in 169 cases the female was pregnant. The applications were approved in 80 of the cases, denied in eight cases, with 81 not returning. Comedienne's Complaint ^ DEC - 1972 p f 6 Carol Burnett Suffers By Public Typecasting POLLY'S POINTERS Club Soda Used To Remove Stains By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—Tell Mrs. J. B. to use club soda on her indoor-outdoor carpet to remove the milk stains. Pour a small amount on a rag or sponge and rub gently — no rinsing needed. I have used club soda on several types of carpet and upholstery and had good results each time. It also loosens any ground-in spots as well as organic stains such as puppy accidents. I, too, have a baby who spits up and, believe me, club soda has been a byword in cleaning carpet stains. It does not leave a tell-tale ring, either. Do hope this helps Mrs. J.B.—MRS. B. M. DEAR GIRLS—Club soda is also a great favorite with my family for this use. Fast action has lots to do with the success of any spot remover. If the spots have been there too long for the club soda to be effective, Mrs. J. B. might try a remedy suggested by the Carpet Institute, which is, wet a clean white cloth or sponge with a simple solution made of one teaspoon neutral detergent, one teaspoon white vinegar and a quart of water. Work from edges to center and blot dry with paper towels. A hair dryer or electric fan could be used to speed up the drying. The procedure can be followed by a cleaning fluid if it should be needed for greasy spots like milk. This should also answer Clara's problem with greasy candle spots.— POLLY ^mmmmm:mm->-i Polly's Problem »Ba»MMMiwiH|| I DEAR POLLY—How could I remove a big candle 1 |i grease spot from my indoor-outdoor carpet? I tried 1 g the warm iron and brown paper treatment. That I y. did not help. Maybe some reader knows of some- i P thing else that might work.—CLARA I DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the catalogs that do not put the inseam lengths of ladies pants in their size charts. We females do have different length legs, too. Although we cannot order inseam lengths (as men can) I would at least like to know what length in inches (not my personal height) that I am ordering. I have written this to four big catalog houses that I order from but. realize my lone complaint may not change anything. — MRS. F. L. DEAR POLLY—As an amusing substitute for candles on a child's birthday cake make a clock face with contrasting color icing on the top. Have the hour hand pointing to the age of the child.—MRS. I.

Personal Mention By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD — • XEA > Carol Burnett has a problem. She's too Carolbur- nettish. Millions of Americans, her loyal and devoted fans, might not consider that bad at all. They love her just as she is^—zany, quirky, wild, wonderful. But that is exactly the problem. Too many people know her as the Carol Burnett of the television show. Now she's branching out. She's made a movie, "Pete 'ri Tillie," with Walter Mat- thau. She thinks she could have done it better, if she wasn't so established in the world's wear}' eye as to who she is. "It's a straight role." she says, "but the opening scene could be construed as being a sketch. In order to compensate so the audience doesn't get the wrong idea. I sat on myself and underplayed. "I'm sure people expect me to come swinging in on a chandelier with my eyes crossed. I had to go completely the other way so they'd know this wasn't just another sketch with Harvey Opelts Attend Grandson's Graduation at Wayne Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Opelt went Sunday to Wayne, Neb., to attend the graduation of their gra;i.l- son, David Lee Wycoff, who was awarded a B.S. in education. Also attending were his family, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Wycoff, Barbara and Tom, and Mrs. Deloris Fitzpatrick and daughter, Carl in. Carlin is a student at Wayne State. MRS. BERT SHIRLEY entertained Mr. and Mrs. Harley Higley of Ware Sunday. Lannie Shannon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Shannon, was an overnight guest of Mrs. Shirley Sunday night. MRS. DORA THOMPSON, Estherville, Mrs. Leona Lehmann, Davenport, and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Brady had an early Christmas celebration Sunday at the Jens Rasmussen home in Wallingford. MR. AND MRS. Pat Breuer were called to Sheldon Monday by the illness and subsequent death of Mrs. Donna Breuer, a cousin and close friend. Mrs. Breuer, 42, died of cancer, leaving a husband and 10 children. Funeral services will be held Thursday morning in Sheldon. MR. AND MRS. Barney Hassel and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hassel, Jeff and Chris will visit at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Hassel and Michelle in Des Moines Saturday. MR. AND MRS. Harold Helle have sold their home at 826 N. 12th St. to Paul Laidig and have now purchased a house at 920 Fourth Ave. N. Korman. "I'd have liked to have been a little more animated in the film, but I couldn't " She is as excited about this movie as anything she's ever done. It's only her second feature. The first was a film called "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed?" that was declared a disaster area. So it's really her first. It all came from out of darkest left field. She had long wanted to do movies but was realistic. She says she knew she'd never get to play the love interest opposite" Cary Grant or Paul Newman or Robert Redford. But she felt that someday she might get a crack at a comedy lead with Jack Lemmon or Walter Matthau. Those were two actors she admired. Two she felt she could possibly work with. And then, one day, Matthau called her. They had met only twice. Once, she had gone backstage to see him after he did "The Odd Couple." Another time they met at a surprise birthday party somebody gave for Jack Lemmon. Both meetings were brief. "When he called me for 'Pete 'n' Tillie' I was stunned," she says. But she quickly got herself un-stunned enough to say yes. It turned out to be a delicious experience. But, she says, she wishes she could do it all over. "I've learned," she says. "Oh, Lord, how I've learned. I learned from Walter and I learned from myself. If I ever get a crack at another film I'll be able to use what I've learned." Chances are good she'll get that third crack and many more. She's probably in the top five on everybody's list of most popular female entertainers today. But don't be afraid that she'll desert her first love, television. She won't. "I'm a child of the tube." Carol says. "I love the excitement of it." She was as excited about her big TV special. "Once Upon a Mattress." as she is about "Pete 'n' Tillie." The CBS-TV show was the second time around for that property, a musical she first created off-Broadway. Rain on the night it shows means good luck to her. It rained on the night "Once Upon a Mattress" first opened. It rained the day she was hired for her first regular TV job with Garry Moore. The night she and Julie Andrews did their Carnegie Hall special it sleeted and when they did their Lincoln Center special there was a thunderstorm. Give Carol Burnett a miserable day and she's in ecstasy. She still hopes some day to do "Once Upon a Mattress" as a feature film. It's too expensive—if it's done right—for today's movie budgets but maybe someday it will be done. "I love it," she says, "because it's a fairy tale that appeals to adults on one level and the kids enjoy it on the surface. It's really a timeless story." Between the special, the movie and her regular TV show it's a full life for Carol Burnett. She'd like to do more movies, but good scripts are hard to come by. "My fantasy," she says, "is to do a movie a year, my series or else five or six specials, and a play here for a few weeks each year. The hard part of that is tofirfa w a good movie script. "I get a lot of scripts sent to me but they are mostly extensions of what I do on my show. Why should I get up at 5 a.m. to do the same thing I do now, getting up much later?" "I'm sure people expect me to come swinging in on a chandelier with my eyes crossed." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Pepsi-Cola explodes shopping myth.
