NELLIE HASSETT OF MCLEANSBORO in a much appreciated note, expressed her surprise at apping her name over in the birthday column. . . She wanted to know how I could remember ft, when, as she put. it, "There are so many other things to keep in mind." Well, I don't deny that I do have my share of things to remember. And, sorry to say, some of these things do slip my mind. . . However, it was no effort to recall the birthday of one of the most remarkable women I've ever met. .. (She is an artist of exceptional talent- One of my most treasured possessions is a beautiful landscape which she created especially for me. . . ft. has a place of honor in my living room—where it has hung since I the day it was brought to my ! home bv her daughter, VERONICA VOSS.) The fact of the matter is this: I really didn't need a hirthdate to remind me of this charming woman. . . I think of her every time I admire the lovely picture—and this is often. . . To be honest. I've lost count of the times I've explained its origin when it has been admired by visitors in my home. So, it isn't a question of being able to remember something as important as her recent ninety-fourth birthday. . . The question is: How in the. world could I possibly forget it ??? Guest Speaker Wayne Stanford, vice president of Ihe Stanford Kngineer- ing Company of Salem, WHS the featured speaker when the ML Vernon Lions Club held its weekly luncheon meeting, yesterday, at the I., and N.

"Men are incapable of choosing their wives' clothes," Norman Harfnell, dressmaker for Queen Elizabeth, told women who attended a fashion show in London recently. Oh, come now, Mr. Harfnell. Such a remark was sure to please the ladies. They love to be told how much more they know than their husbands d<» on any subject at all.

Polly's Pointers POLLY'S POINTERS tsOXP ALWAYS AT HAND BY POLLY CRAMER, Newspaper Enterprise Assn. DEAR POLLY—I am hoping my hint, will make someone's day less complicated. The recent hint for washing a lace tablecloth was really a smart one. Mine is now as good as new. • Save the last bits of facial soap and dry them thoroughly. Grate them on your kitchen grater, fill a small pill vial an dkeep this in your purse. If you are ever stranded in a rest, room with no soap with which to freshen up, you al- vial and keep this in your purse. If seems I always pick a rest room that has run out of soap. —MARY DEAR POLLY— I have devised a game fo rour four-year-old The tour was headed by Governor Otto Kerner. Mr. Stanford, in a m o s t interesting way, told how each of these countries is anxious to purchase materials from the United States and are willing to cooperate with this country's method of foreign commerce. He also said that the businessmen of Europe are eager to meet and visit with Americans •— particularly in group meetings. This has led to a much better understanding of problems faced by all— plus an increase in orders for merchandise manufactured in this country. A letter of appreciation was read in which Eltis Hcnson, superintendent of the Mt. Vernon Township High School, thanked the Lions Club for the dinner it sponsored in behalf of the Rams 1068 football team —an annual project of the organization. President Don Shafer presided at the meeting and the invocation was given by Herbert G. Wilson. It was announced that the Christmas program will be presented at the meeting next week. There will not be a meeting on Wednesday, December 2fS or on January I - New Years Day. Ed Dilley was a guest. Led by Kenneth Mills, the group enjoyed the singing of Christmas cards.

Our storm windows had round holes across the bottom of each wood frame but. we always wished more provision had been made for ventilation. To remedy this, my husband cut a big oval across the bottom of each frame where the small round holes had been. He further improved the situation by nailing screening, on fthe outside, over this opening. Insects cannot get in as they used to before we would get the storm windows down and the screens up in the spring. We ran leave them up longer without depriving ourselves of the outdoor air.-MKS.
