Jodi Hunt, James Jensen Married; Will Leave for Lackland in June ESTHERVHJJ DAILY NEWS, MON.. JAN. 15,_lgW P*g* 1 (Photo by Dave's) Mr. and Mrs. James Jensen POLLY'S POINTERS Here Are Ways to Remove Tape Marks By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—I may have a solution for Norma whose kitchen floor is marred by gummed tape left by a previous tenant. Furniture movers placed a gummed label on one of my tables. It seemed to be permanently "aliixed until 1 removed it in a most surprising way. I 'poured some salad oil on it and it came right off. Instead of damaging the table the oil seemed to improve its looks after a hot move across the country. There seems to be a simple solution for most knotty problems but only through serendipity do we find them.—VIRGINIA DEAR POLLY—Norma can use cleaning fluid, kerosene or fuel oil to remove the two-inch wide adhesive tape a former tenant left on her kitchen floor. If it is a cloth adhesive tape she might also try sudsy ammonia mixed with an equal part of water. Leave on "until every trace has been removed and then wash off well with plenty of water.—OLGA DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the makers of sunglasses. If they can make regular sunglasses small enough to fit a three-year-old or smaller why can't they make the clip-on kind small enough for a "young child who has to wear glasses all the time?—MRS. B. J. R. DEAR POLLY—I use a tie that comes on a plastic bread wrapper to twist around my pastry blender. This keeps it together so it never gets caught on anything else in the drawer. I always searched for my yardstick until I had my husband" drill a small hole in one end and then I hung it on the inside casing to the cellar door. He put up a small finishing nail (no head) to hold the stick which is always in place, so easv to get out and to put away.—MRS. W. G. W. DEAR POLLY—A member of our family with heart trouble perspired a great deal at night so the bedding, including the pad, had to be washed very frequently. After a strong bleach was used, particularly on the pad, the odor was objectionable. We tried using half a cup of a pleasant smelling shampoo in the water and the bedding came out smelling fresh and sweet.—OLIVE THE LOCKHORNS IIS " LEf?OY COULQ NEVER 6E A J.AWV6R.

Jean Hunt and Michele Barnes were maid of honor and bridesmaid, respectively. They wore navy blue velour jackets with light blue, floor-length skirts.

IT'S ONE OF THOSE BLANK MONDAY MORNINGS — I wrote the heading — my pen is poised — then stalemate — nothing happens. But if you're willing to struggle along with me, we might muddle through. I WONDER IF ANYTHING HAS FRIGHTENED THE AMERICAN PUBLIC as much since the first atomic bomb as the prediction that our country will convert to the metric system in the near future? It's mean to be a killjoy, but we'll have to face it. Recently the county extension directors received a letter from Vernon M. Meyer, extension agricultural engineer, at Ames on this subject. It was a clever letter (yep, I laughed through my tears while I read the whole thing!) I'm sure Mr. Meyer won't resent my passing it on to you. "We'll Help You Solve a Problem "And to be sure we can help you, we'll suggest the problem to solve. Like converting to metric units. "Our country is going metric. The only question is WHEN? "It will help to start expressing familiar dimensions metrically. A pencil is about 200 mm (millimeters) long, a desk is 750 mm high and a door is about 2,000 mm high. "A 2 x 4 is 3.8 x 8.9 cm (centimeters). How's that for being up to date? And people have said we're so far behind in Iowa — that we still use n x IV. "An apple weighs about 100 grams while the average person weighs about 60 kilograms. "I could enclose a list of conversion factors, but why do it the hard way? An excellent reference for conversions is a publication from the U.S. Department of Commerce. It contains 230 pages of conversion tables that are computer printout sheets. "Let's be ready for the change ahead of time. Remember — 28. 349523 grams of prevention is worth 0.453592 kilograms of cure." AND JUST WHEN I WAS BEGINNING TO FEEL quite secure in the fact that 16 ounces equal 1 pound. I'VE DEFINITELY MADE UP MY MIND. When the metric system takes over, I'm taking off. Surely somewhere there will be a secluded haven where I can still say "an ounce of prevention-" or better yet— "phew, she could stand to lose 50 pounds." I'll bet I can talk quite a crowd into joining me too! Tuesday, January 16 — 1:30 p.m., Extension office, Spirit Lake. Wednesday, January 17— 1:30 p.m. DEK Building, Estherville. The Extension service will present a class to the public, "The Responsible Consumer" — a slide presentation and discussion. This is a chance to — Speak Up — let us hear your gripes as a consumer. We should all come away more aware of the ways we can lessen this communication gap between the consumer and business. Everyone is welcome. To Share Birthday Mrs. Ed Carey of Spirit Lake and Tom Thornburg received word of babies born to their nephew and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Thornburg and to their niece and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Drake, all of Pleasantville. Lloyd Thornburg and Mrs. Drake are brother and sister and their babies were born Jan. 7. The Thornburgs had a boy and the Drakes a girl. SPIRIT LAKE - Mrs. K. W.
