Miss Vermont Polly's pointers DEAR POLL - Katy could use kerosene to remove the glue on her ceramic bathroom tiles. Soak with a rag and then rub until removed. Throw out kerosene-soake i rags to avoid a fire hazard. - MARTHA DEAR POLLY - Like Katy we, too, bought an older house that had had a sloppy job of ceramic tile installation ami about all that could be seen of the tiles were the centers. There was lots of old glue and it was really thick. A. painter suggested I buy wood alcohol at the drugstore and I used it to clean a small space at a time, then washed well with soap and water. Paper towels were used 10 dry and shine. Remember this is a POISON.—BERNICE DEAR READERS —An installer of ceramic tiles advised me that the simplest and easiest way to do this is to carefully use a razor blade. Any paint thiner should also do it but he said usually a razor blade had to be used in conjunction with anything used to soften the glue. Great care must be taken when using any of these flammable products as even smoking in the room could be disastrous. Open windows, too, when using these noxious liquids.—POLLY Today's Problem DEAR POLLY — Two weeks ago I bought an expensive leather belt. When I wore it in the rain, the belt spotted which completely ruins its good looks. Can anyone tell me how to remov-j these spots? — M. M. DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve is with the wr.y groceries are sacked at the market. Instead of putting all the heavy cans and bottles in one bag and all the light things like bread, tissues, etc. in another, why don't they divide up and put half the heavy things in one bag and half in another with Ihe lighter things on top. I have to carry my groceries up a long flight of steps and man> times they are too heavy for me to handle.—JUDY DEAR JUDY—May I join you? Also (lie bags would not break through as easily as they do when filled with all heavy things.—POLLY Write to Polly Cramer in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. Silver and Gold Gold metallic fabrics have always sold well during the holidays. But designers have perfected these fabrics so they're subtler than ever before. Look for the latest in. fashion with silver specks or golden threads running through. MRS. DYER Entered competition solely for scholarship money By EWART ROUSE ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Sugar and spice and everything nice—that's what most Miss Ame*'ica contestants are made of. There's a bit of salt in th's year's Miss Vermont, who has made a few pronouncements not usually heard in the honeyed world of beauty queens. "I can't believe I'm here. I can't believe it," said the New Englancler, Kathy H e b e r t , at Monday's registration. "This is not the real me. If I were to be my real self, I'd be here in hot socks, jeans, T-shirt, no bra and with my hair hanging loose and natural." Miss Hebert, a hazel-eyed ash blonde who was addressed in a floral print long gown, says she believes in astrology "and my sign says I'm schizophrenic." "My dad calls me a kooky freak," she says. She entered the competition solely for scholarship money to help finance her study in fashion designing at Pratt \ Married in Wo r den church Conversation with child makes him feel Visible' Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, September 5,1972 Wed in Roxana church Miss Debra Ann O'Neal of East Alton became the bride of Jeffry Dale Dyer of Bethalto Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Roxana Church of the Nazarene.

Jenkins jf 3-13 Schneider St., Worden, The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Heflin of Pochontas, 111. A reception followed in the Worden American Legion Hall immediately after the ceremony. The bride wore a gown of siitii peau over taffeta with a chapel length train. Her veil was attached to u venise lace profile headpiece.

Her husband, a graduate of the same school, is employed by Ford Motor Company in Hazelwood, Mo. DEAR ANN: A young neighbor of mine has six children under 12 years of age. I have always admired this young woman and marveled at the way she handles her growing family. The children get along beautifully. They are cooperative and mannerly. Yesterday, I learned her secret. She told me she makes it a point to spend at least ten minutes each day engaged in a personal conversation with each child. This makes them feel "visible." It adds to their self-esteem and reduces the sibling rivalry that most children grow up with. A child doesn't resent a brother or sister who gets parental attention if he gets his share. Wil! you please find room in your column for this little nugget, Ann? — LADY ACROSS THE ROAD DEAR LADY: Here's the nugget and my thanks for allowing me to put it in a showcase for other mothers to see. If every mother who reads your letter will make a special effort to act on your suggestion today, I'll bet they'll be astonished at the results. DEAR ANN: I just read the letter from the girl who signed herslef "Chickadee" and it's after midnight, but I won't sleep tonight unless I write her this letter. She said her fiance has a hot temper, is very suspicious and constantly checking and accusing her of everything under the sun. She closed by saying she can't live with or without him. I pray that Chickadee will take your advice and ditch the bum. If she has a brain in her head she'll run for her life — in the opposite direction. It may hurt for awhile but better to have a few weeks (or months) of agony than a lifetime of it. Hot tempers don't fade. They get hotter. I know what I am talking about, because I married the same kind of lunatic and I have the scars to prove it. So many girls think they are going to make a man over after they are married but it never works out that way. I realize this is a pretty tired tune I'm singing, but some people have to hear something 40 times before it soaks in. So, I say Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., she says, and doesn't consider herself a typical contestant. ''I'm anti-Nixon; I've demonstrated against the war; I supported Jane Fonda, and believe in premarital sex," she said without pause. Miss Hebert, a guitarist folksinger, thinks she has a good shot at winning the talent category of the pageant but not the swimsuit competition. She measures 36-2538 and weighs 135. That's 25 pounds less than she weighed last year. "I weighed 170 pounds in 1971 when I first entered the Miss Vermont pageant and blew the whole thing because of my weight," she says. "They told me if 1 lost some weight I might win the next time. 1 reduced this year and won." The executive director of the pageant, Albert A. Marks Jr., said Miss Hebert was "u rather unusual lady" but added, "I respect her opinions and even more so her i ight to express them. If this is the way she feels she wishes to project herself, it's strictly her affair as far as I'm concerned. "She has teen ou'spoken, but this is not necessarily to her disadvantage." Miss America 1973 will be chosen Saturday, following several days of competition and rehersals. Crowning the winner will be Laurie Lee Shaetev, Miss America 1972, who on Monday advised the girls vying to succeed her. "You're all unique individuals, lie true to \our characters, don't try to be somebody else." to all you Chickadees out there, call me a bore, but do yourselves a favor and listen. LEARNED THE HARD WAY DEAR LEARNED - Here's your letter and if just one person gets the message it was worth staying up an extra 30 minutes to write. DEAR ANN: I'm probably old enough to be your mother but I am coining to you for advice because you seem to have good judgment. I am a widow who recently met another nice woman without, a husband. The problem is her table manners. They are atrocious. This otherwise genteel woman uses her thumb as a pusher, eats stewed chicken with her hands, drips gravy all over the tablecloth, and frequently uses her forefinger to dislodge food from her dentures. At this point I become nauseated. The last time we dined out I simply did not look at her. I enjoy this Woman's company but, I cannot stand her table manners. Should I drop her or tell her how I feel? Or is there a chance that I am excessively critical and intolerant?—NEW ORLEANS DEAR N. 0.: Tell her. If she resents it and discontinues the friendship you have lost nothing. If you don't tell her, you will soon become so annoyed by her grossness that you will eventually attack her on some other grounds and the friendship will be over. Can drugs be a friend in time of stress? If you keep your head together can they be of help? Ann Landers' new booklet, "Straight Dope On Drugs" separates the fact from the fiction. Get it today. For each booklet ordered, send a dollar bill, plus a LONG, self-addressed, stamped envelope (16 cents postage) to Ann Landers, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. MKS.
