The universal appeal of outdoor dining need not be limited to an afternoon picnic or barbecue. You can plan an evening picnic with dancing that combines the convenience of picnic foods with the informality of the party. Set the food area on grass, .sand or little tables. Oilcloth may be stretched over tables to glimmer in the moonlight or placed on the ground. Placemats of oilcloth, bound with tape of a contrasting color, with each person's name on it may be used for sitting on the ground. Write the names on mats with an indelible magic marker. These markers may be used too for autographing the large cloths. Cloths may be put over the Individual bridge-type tables and in that case you may like to scrawl the names of all the guests. Sot Like a Stage Set the party like a stage, whether it is outdoors or on the porch. Half the fun of your moonlight picnic will he the enchantment. Use whatever lights will further enhance the area, and small candles set in bottles help the mood. Spray bottles gold, silver, white or a color if you like. Glue or tape shells, sequins or artificial flowers to them. Candles may be put into fruit or flower pots, if you prefer. A moonlight punch may be served in hollowed-out pineapples, the fruit contents being used for punch. These are often cheap enough to make the idea worthwhile, especially with the useful contents serving as part of the punch. Fill an inexpensive little picnic basket for each person. Keep everything refrigerated until time to serve. Put a basket at each place when it is time to oat the finger foods. Fried Chicken Good" Fried chicken is tasty and inexpensive to serve. Good hot dogs are likely to cost just as much in the long run, considering how many hungry kids can eat. You can get extra mileage out of a chicken by getting two extra legs out of the wings. Just cut the wing at the joint, and you have a tiny leg on one side of it. Menu: Fried chicken, thin cucumber sandwiches on white bread with mayonnaise, cole slaw, potato sticks, cup cakes or cake and fruit. Boys like cucumber sand- wiches and cucumbers are cheap. Cole .slaw may be packed in small paper cups. Line the basket with naprtr napkins, so that leftovers may be thrown into a wastcbasket that is handy. Slack the baskets and you are ready for dancing. Dancing can be on a screened- in porch that has been cleared i of furniture or at an area around a pool or a room right off the outdoor party area. Here's a recipe for Moonlight Punch. It'll serve about 60 in 8-ounce paper cups: 2 cups lemon or lime juice. 4 cups orange juice. 4 cups pineapple juice. 4 quarts of cider. 4 quarts of ginger ale. Break up currant jelly with a fork and use as a glaze for ham. FREE TRIAL OPEN SUNDAY 12:30 TO S P.M.

My problem is just the opposite and 1 would gladly change places • \\ ith any of them. It's easy Mo add to what \ou don't have, but nothing can be done when vou have too ' f much. • ( ,f r,ver since I * was 12, I have Ann Landers, been subjected to crude remarks because of generous over-endowment. All through school I've hnd a collection of private nicknames you wouldn't believe. I tried walking hunched over, carrying my books in front, 1 wore loose blouses. Nothing helped. You can't imagine what it's like lor a young girl never to lie able to wear a sweater or a strapless dress or a low-cut gown. And what a job finding a decent lit! I need a sine 10 dress with a 14 top. So please tell the Flat Flos- sies to stop moaning, ff they had to wear a double D cup they'd know what trouble is. -ALL ..IK. DEAR VOl': An embarrassment of riches, you might call it. Here's your letter and let's hope it cheers up the Flat. Flossies —- although they will probably find little comfort in knowing that someone else has too much of what they'd like more of. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 am the mother of four teenagers. These are perilous times for growing up, but 1 am not concerned even remotely about my daughters, Ann. It's the boys that worry me. Tom is 16 and Jim 18. They are obedient, and respectful, excellent students, well-behaved and outstanding in athletics. So what is the problem? It's the way the girls run after them that worries me sick. How much temptation can a young fellow stand? Now that school is out the phone rings night and day. Both boys nave summer jobs, .but when they come home at . 5:30 there is a list of girls who have telephoned. Every night two or three s;irls drive up in their convertible!;. Sunday a ,"ir< came over in her car. She was wearing a bikini. I wouldn't think of allowing my daughters to be so shameless. What can a mother do? —ATLANTA, GA. DEAR ATLANTA: The u-orld has always had shameless females and 1 see no evidence that this sort, of woman is disappearing. Your work is done. Mother -or it isn't. If your boys were taught early to respect themselves and others you need not worry. If you failed to teach them, worrying now- won 1 1 help. * * # * DEAR ANN LANDERS:Several letters have appeared in your column from mothers who received used clothing for their children. Some were do- lighted others insulted. 1 hope you will find space to print just one more. I grew up during the depression. Every evening gown I ever owned went to at least four proms. .My maternity dresses went the rounds, too. Nothing was waster 1 . When we moved fo another city I offered some clothing to a woman who hasn i spoken to me since. So when my hus- 1-anci decided to discard an expensive sport jacket I gingerly offered it *o a mother who could well afford to buy hoi- son a new one. She gave me in return some play clothes for my younger children. It kills me to send kids out in brand ne\v clothes to play in the mud. 1 was delighted to have the hand-me-downs. This woman and 1 are now good friends. The secret is to know which people will be offended and which ones will be pleased. And the only way to find out is to ask. --DID IT. DEAR DID IT: Thanks for a nice, homey letter. There are more people like you than the other kind. And I'm glad! * * * * Confidential to ANTI ASH FUCKER: The moment, she lights up hand her a nice big ash tray. She'll get the point. :.- * * II: Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envolpe. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Green cabbage quarters and medium-sized pared potatoes and carrots need to be added to corned beef only about half an hour before the meat is cooked through and tender.
