Garrels, 1003 Logan St. Sorry for Cats But Not Neighbor DEAR ANN: A few years ago the people next door bought a little kitten for their daughter. The child was tenderhearted and loved animals. She started a home for stray cats— feeding and sheltering them from the elements, bless her heart. Today the girl is 9 years old, and apparently the cats have spread the word 'around town. At the last count Ann Landers, there were 38 cats in the basement. It's admirable that the child is such a little humanitarian but do you know what 38 cats sound like? Our house is very close to theirs and I haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks. Every morning I drag myself to work exhausted. Is there a logical solution which has escaped because I'm so tired? I don't want to be an old meanie but I can't go on this way.—D.E.E. DEAR D.E.E.: Thirty-eight cats is a lot of felines under one roof. There are ordinances in most jurisdictions pertaining to animals and I suggest you learn what they are by contacting your local humane society. Then you can speak with some authority to your neighbors. * * * V DEAR ANN: I would like to comment on the letter from the woman who was annoyed with her psychiatrist because he munched apples during her sessions and seemed totally disinterested. I had a similar experience, and for $25 an hour, too. At first I was furious but I kept my anger bottled up. Then one day I exploded and tore right into him. It was the worst tongue-lashing I had ever given any one. My doctor let me rant and rave for 10 minutes then he quietly said, "Good. Now we will get someplace. My progress since that day has been amazing. People who seek professional help fool themselves if they talk only about what is polite and pleasant. You were wise to advise that patient to let the doctor have it. If she takes your advice she'll find, as I did, that there is real value in being honest about one's feelings. —UNCHAINED DEAR UNCHAINED: Psychiatrists and analysts must be catching it from patients Church Notes Former Altonian to Speak Wed 50 Years In observance of their 50th wedding anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Marion A.

The couple spoke about their travels to members of the Adult Bible Class of the Grace Methodist Church following a covered dish dinner in the church. The Monroes are visiting here from Bradenton, Fla.

Many readers wrote along these same lines. Hooray for all of you! * * * * DEAR ANN: About that old duffer who dashes for the picture window when the light next door goes on: His wife probably resembles mine—a perfect 39-39-39 with a voice like a ton of gravel going down a coal chute. The old girl has let herself go till she looks like a mountain of lard. I've pleaded with her to do a little walking and bending, to cut down on the starches and get herself looking like a human being again—but it's a hopeless cause. So when I want to see a beautiful female figure, what do I do? I go to our kitchen window at about 10:30 p.m. and there she is—a model in her early 30's who lives across the court. She wanders around in her scanties. Sometimes she does exercises, or irons a little, or sews or reads. I've checked with other old duffers in this building and they enjoy the view, too. Of course, the woman is despised by every hog-fat, double-chinned wife in the building. They keep hoping she'll move. We hope she stays here forever. —NOT DEAD YET # * * * DEAR YET: If this is proof that you are "not dead" I have news—you're not exactly living either. I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Add this herb to a meat loaf; you can mix about a teaspoon of ground sage into a meat mixture that is made up of two pounds of ground beef and half a pound of ground pork.

Peter and Paul Church has been persuaded to give us a recipe for the column. Cooking is one of his hobbies, and he Is kept busy cooking for meetings of church groups. Despite his modesty he has earned an enviable reputation for his delicious recipes. His recipe for Pork Chops and Rice Dressing is simpler than some he has put together. Father Bertoldo never measures ingredients, and so had to cook this dish especially to write down directions as he went along.

BERTOLDO Directions: Brown pork chops well (save grease). Cook rice. Add other Ingredients to rice, then pour some of the pork chop grease In with rice mixture. Mix together well. Place pork chops In a baking pan and pour rice dressing on chops. Place in moderate oven (350 degrees) and bake for one hour.

A Lovelier You Art of 'Suiiimerizing 9 ~ By MARY SUE MILLER In summer the Ideal home- to-come-home-to 3s a cool haven, immaculate and serene. Likewise the ideal homemaker! But things don't always work out that way under the stress of hot weather. The chance for success is greatly enhanced, though, by a bit of clever management. If that's for you, take these two steps: 1. As long before noon as possible, get the "hot" work over—cleaning chores, laundry and any preparation for dinner that can be made ahead. So as to simplify these tasks, store away dust-catching bric-a-brac, concentrate on drip-dry clothes, and plan al fresco menus with only one hot dish. In that way it becomes easier to keep a house sparkling, to provide clean changes of clothes, and to tempt heat-depressed appetites. And although those boons actually have no effect on the 'Fahrenheit, there's nothing like them for creating an emotional climate that is real, real cool. 2. Weave your beauty routines in with housework. Skin treatments and hair sets are especially suited to the purpose. After work, have a hot bath and a chilled cologne rubdown. Then slip into fresh clothes and arrange your hair in the sleekest possible fashion. If you have young children to tend, bathe and dress while they nap. Thus you attain a calm and come-hither, even more attractive than that of your home. Beauty of Housework If housework saps your energies, looks and nerves, send for my booklet, "Beauty of Housework." It explains how to keep home and self sparkling with time to spare. Also included are an effort-saving work plan, shortcuts in housekeeping, and advice on how to give yourself a beauty treatment while engaged in your duties. For your copy, write Mary Sue Miller in care of this newspaper, enclosing 20 cents in coin and a large, stamped, self addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Cooking Cues Canned pea soup gets new Interesting flavor when you add a pinch of marjoram and a little garlic powder.
