His Signals Are Crossed! Abigail Van Burer Engagement Announced DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a girl who buys her own engagement ring? Her boy friend told her he couldn't afford to buy her a ring because he is paying off his car, so she went out and bought herself one and paid for it. She says lots of girls do it. J-Ier boy friend said if it makes her happy, he doesn't see anything wrong with it. Am I old-fashioned or isn't this fellow a poor excuse for a man? BYSTANDER DEAR BVSTANDER: Apparently the girl Is calling the signals. She flhotild have bought TWO rings — one for his nose. * + * DEAR ABBY: A friend I grew up with but haven't seen in years, called me long distance and said she was coming to this city to visit for a few days. I told her I'd be glad to see her but I didn't have room enough in my apartment to have her stay with us. She said, "Oh, the floor will be good enough for me." I told her I wouldn't think of it, but she argued and argued and I couldn't talk her out of it. Now my husband is having a fit, and says he can't have a woman sleeping on the floor while he is sleeping on a bed. He says he'll go stay with friends and give HER his bed. Abby, I can't let him do that. I am so mad at myself for letting her win the argument. What should I do when she comes? Past Noble. Grands' Club The Past Noble Grands' Club of Vamell Rebekah Lodge will meet Thursday evening at 7:30 o'clock in the home of Mrs. Katie Terry, 601 Broadway.

She's 90% brass and won't feel a thing! * * * DEAR ABBY: I am 13 years old and I guess I should know when I am sick and when I am not sick. My mother calls me a "little hypochondriac." Whenever I complain about a headache or a pain In the leg or the arm she says it's only growing pains and If I didn't pay so much attention to myself I wouldn't notice them. I want to see a doctor but every time I mention it, my mother says, "Oh, it's nothing, you don't, need a doctor." How can I convince my mother that. I do? NO HYPOCHONDRIAC DEAR NO: If you really think you need to see n doctor, ask your teacher or school nurse to persuade your mother. Perhaps you have complained too much In the past about minor ailments to foe token seriously now. But don't ignore your pains. What's on your mind?

Their idea was to set up practical aims but oilmen have responsibilities beyond the purely economic realm, they must be of service to the public or the organization would die.

By POLLY CRAMER, Newspaper Enterprise Assn. DEAR POLLY — When our son leaves his bed unmade or sloppily thrown together, I remake it rather than have the room look untidy all day. 1 print on a large paper sack, "Please fill this bag with grass from the front, flower bod." 1 leave this in this room. I have explained that "since you do not specialize in neat bedmaking you will have to specialize in flower bed weeding." After a session of grass pulling, he remembers for a week or so to make his bed neatly—almost. • Do you girls who have made skirts from men's trouser legs know that leaving the cuffs on makes a neat fold-ov- waistband? I made such a skirt and found the regular creases happened in just the best places—one on the right and one on the left front and back, flaring outward. I use the pants zipper, placing it in the center of the back and making sure to fold over the end of the zipper so that the "pull" would not rip off the top. A wraparound skirt can be made from the legs of men's slacks. Again the creases will be just where you want them. Transfer the belt loops from the pants to the skirt and make belt out of some of the unused top material. When you take the slacks apart, rip the outside vertical scam and leave the inner seam intact.—MRS. M. R. DEAR POLLY—Don't throw away that old umbrella that has a worn top. Remove the fabric and use the frame for drying clothes indoors on rainy days. Hang it upside down on your shower curtain rod or in the garage. It will hold a week's wash of undies or baby's diapers.—G.L.G. DEAR POLLY — When you have a small or delicate garment to wash by hand, use a largo comb, held upright, when it needs a little extra rubbing. The comb makes a wonderful miniature washboard and will remove the dirt and not injure the fabric—MRS. D. DEAR POLLY—I was so pleased with a gift I received at a bridal shower, I want to pass the idea on to others, lt was a small kit of household tools which included a hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, nails and screws. It was a conversation piece at the party and a useful item when it came time to set up housekeeping.—MRS. W. S. DEAR POLLY—When storing dried garden onions for winter use, put them in old nylon stockings, tie a knot in the top of each and hang them in the cellar. They won't sprout until fresh ones are ready in the garden. MRS. K. B. GIRLS—Here Is a use for hose that has too many runs to be used for knitting a sweater. —POLLY The wedding ceremony will be | lernily. performed Saturday afternoon, j The prospcetiv February 1. at I hire o'clock in the Wesley Collegiate Chapel at Norman, Oklahoma. The bride-clod is a 1060 graduate of the .Shamrock High School and will receive a BA degree from the University of Oklahoma in January. She is a major in anthropology and a member of Kappa Phi service organization, and Chi Omega social fra- o bridegroom is a graduate of the Mt. Vernon Township High School. He attended the University of Illinois and is a 1963 graduate of the University of Oklahoma, with a BS degree in mechanical engineering. He is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. American Association of Mechanical Engineers lie. is now stationed at Ft. Sill, Okla., with the U. S. Army. WE THE WOMEN Honiemukcr vs. Housewife By Rl'TII Mil.LETT Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Twelve homemakers recently signed » loiter to me protesting my frequent use of the term "housewite." "We resent this term or title- very much," they said. "We arc not married to a house, we would have vou know. We are HOMEMAKERS and feel it is a privilege and an honor in be classed as such." Personally. I've never understood why any woman objects to the term housewife or ever Cooking Tips II you whip cream ahead and refrigerate it. before putting it in a pastry tube with n decorator tip to use for garnishing' a dessert, spoon the lop fluffy part ot the cream into the tube; don't, use the liquid that may have seeped out in the bottom of the bowl. A couple of tablespoons of; melted butler or margarine will; help make French pancakes- i the thin variety-tender. Use r> one-cup flour recipe and stir into the bailer. Like your baked potatoes with a crisp or soft skin? For the former, .scrub the spuds and put them to bake "as is''; : for the latter rub the potatoes I wonder why no has ever coined the phrase "courageous as a chrysanthemum" .. Seems to me that would be the ultimate in complimentary comparison. . . At our place, where the beautiful roses have long since left the autumn scene, the yellow mums continue to bloom and brighten a spot at the west end of the front porch—despite freezing weather . . . And, at the east, end of the porch, a first-year cluster ot purple mums are putting on a pretty show ... So it is, year after year, when nil other blossoms have come and gone, these flowers linger. One year they actually lasted until a week before the Christmas holdiays. » * « I'm still keeping alive an argument that. 1 started about, three weeks ago ... It began when I said thai Indian Sumor is over for this year . . . Those opposing this opinion number quite a few—and I had the good fortune to come face to face with a couple of them last. Saturday afternoon when a. bit of snow was coming down . . . On each occasion, the argument was as hot as I was wishing the weather could be . . .And, on both occasions, I was again told that the period of warm and golden days has yet to arrive, this year, in southern Illinois . . . (Now that is what I call optimism because, while these cozy predictions were repealed, all conversation was carried on over the sound of chattering teeth—as a sharp wind whistled out of the north . . . ) So, the argument continues, and while it does, the furnace hums the same old familiar tune that has been drifting up from the basement for several weeks . . . Incidentally, I note that the storm doors and windows have been installed at. my | house . . . But, I've made no | comment . . . After all. Glenn is among those who are certain that the wonderful season of bright skies . . . hazy atmosphere . . . and floating cobwebs is due to arrive most any day now . . . Until then. I suppose he concludes that he may as well be as comfortable as possible . . . For this I'm duly grateful ... In my opinion, he lias quite a wait . . . Say about a year—give or lake a couple of days. CONFORMISTS* PERSONALS Meanwhile, I get the feeling that the squirrels share my outlook—which is as bleak as the recent skies over this community ... At. any rate, they have resumed their November begging routine, and, while wearing their heavy fur coats, sit on the ledge outside the kitchen window and stare me out of countenance as I go about the business of preparing the evening meal ... Of course their starved-to-death glances always prove to be too much . . . So these days, it is taking more than usual to keep a normal supply in my bread box. » * * I'm wondering if someone out there in readerland will share a recipe for chow mein noodle candy . . . (I'm sure there is at least, one such recipe in existence because this candy was a sensation at a local money making project . . . And, one of my friends wants to know just how such a marvelous delicacy is prepared . . . So, I join her in hoping that the directions will appear here in the near future . . . Could be YOU are the clever gal who dreamed up such a tasty treat . . . Could be, you'll share your method ... I hope so.) Representative I finally got around to keeping a promise I made to myself a couple of months back . . . 1 cleaned out the store room . . . Really made money on the deal, too ... In a small box, hidden under three other small boxes, [ found seam binding, matching thread, a pair of scissors I had mourned as lost forever — and a blouse pattern ... (1 wish I could remember how accomplished these cleaning sprees make me feel . . . I'm confident I'd do them more often ... At any rate, there is a strong temptation to leave the door wide on its hinges—in the hope that the orderly room can be viewed by a couple of friends who have seen it at its worst . . . Then they would know that I'm not all talk . . . Once in a while, seldom, I'll admit—but, once in awhile, I do tackle some of the jobs that I often discuss . . . And, as I said, the completed job leaves me feeling mighty smug.) m * • Anonymous: Nothing wilts faster than laurels when rested upon. by Janet Henry belittles it by saying "just a i with a little but lor or margar- housewife" when asked her i ine before baking. . occupation. ! I It seems to me that "house- wile" is a good, honest word, and better describes a married woman who keeps house lor a husband than the term "homemaker." After all. all a homemaker needs in a house to keep. She doesn't even have to have a husband. Lois of unmarried career women are excellent homemakers, but they aren't housewives because they aren't wives. Maybe Ihe 12 women who joined signatures in that letter of protest and I can compromise on a third term. I came across it in the book, "Family Living in the Bible." by Edith Deen. Mrs. Deen says; "A much-used phrase to describe I freezer-s I ore. homemakers is 'keepers at home.' It occurs in the letter to I p 0 ur orange- and rum-flav- Titus . . .

Freeze water in a ring moid, unmold, wrap tightly in plastic and tors, the letter discusses suitable behavior for older ;md younger women of the church. Younger women were urged to l»> 'keepers at home' (Titus 2:5)." "Keepers al home" is a beautiful term, null it is u shiinie it has gone out of use. True, it doesn't contain the. word "wife," but "keepers at home" dues seem to imply that the home is being kept for the comfort and well-being of others. Anyway, if what the women who wrote me are looking lor is a term to replace the commonly accepted "housewife." why not "keepers at home" It has a dignity that should go with the world's most important job. But if in the future I use the term "housewife," I hope no woman will feel insulted. For whether we call her a "housewife" or "homemaker" or a "keeper at home" doesn't really matter so long as we never belittle the job or put a "just a" in front of the title. ingly rich, but good.
