It's Blueberry Time! By Dorothy Yeglin (TIM Register'^ Food Editor) H, WHAT beautiful mornings arc those for blueberry-lovers! Though tho peak of the season and the best of the crop is yet to come, the blues arc here to brighten the scon" at h r ca k f a s t and right on through the late-late snack. To start the day off colorfully, they're turning up on cereals, in pancakes, atop waffles, in fruit compn'os as well as in blueberry muffins. Muffins in the morning: They'rr a luxury that too few of us enjoy these days. But sip-ely there are times, when the mercury is not too high, that we could at least reach for a package of mix on the shelf and toss some fresh berries into the batter. Wo might even stir up a batch such as these Blueberry Cheese Muffins for a special treat. They're made with sharp cheddar and corn- moat for old-fashioned richness of taste and t-xMire. Just in case you're more inclined to oncn un a tv>rk;tcr of refrigerator biscuits, there's also an idea for turning them into blueberry surprises.

(Special Dispatch to The Reelster) NEW YORK, N.Y. - Most unwed fathers are not casual philanderers but surprisingly j moral young men, the first I nation-wide study ever made of unmarried fathers revealed Tuesday. Sixty-one per cent of those surveyed not only expressed an obligation to marry the girl but said they wanted to marry her, reports the current issue of Ladies' Home Journal. The study of unwed fathers was conducted by the Family Service Association of America (F.S.A.) for the magazine. "Despite all t h e talk of sexual promiscuity among high, school and college students, nearly half the unmarried fathers reported that the sex i act in which conception had occurred was their first full sexual experience; the girl was usually a virgin, too," state ear ce.

But no matter what I do, it rusts inside. 1 hope you have a solution for this. —New Bride Heloise says: Whether your Dutch oven is new or you have inherited it. the first thing I want to tell you is don't ever put water in it and boil it on the stove to clean it. POINTS FOR PARENTS This absolutely ruins it. It will take years to build up that "seasoning" again. What you are probably doing is washing the fryer, putting the lid back on and sticking it on a shelf. Those little pores In that cast iron still have moisture in them. With the lid on, the moisture doesn't evaporate, and causes rust. After washing my cast iron utensils, I put them on the stove just a moment and warm them, turn off the fire and let them cool. Thfe allows the moisture to evaporate. I never put the lids other key findings of the survey reported in the Journal article: Nearly nine out of ten unwed fathers were against abortions. And only a slim majority (53 per cent) believed in letting "their" baby be put up for adoption. Most unwed fathers a r e between 17 and 22 years of age". The largest number, are high- school seniors. Forty per cent of the impregnations take place in cars, the girl's home, 32 p e r cent; the boy's home, 17 per cent, and only seven per cent in motels. To obtain a scientifically valid sampling for the survey, the F.S.A. asked each of its affiliated agencies to analyze the case history of the last unwed father whom its counselors had advised. Case histories of 149 unwed fathers were studied. Mother: "Tommy had his first visit to the dentist .today and he acted like a baby. I was ashamed of him." Tommy: "He hurt me with that drill. He's a mean man. I don't like him." Start, a child visiting the dentist when he is 2 or 3 years old when he probably will need only examinations and cleaning. He will look on the dentist as his kind friend, rather than someone who may frighten or hurt him. hints •from Uelofce If the introduction of new situations is fairly pleasant, a child is likely to take later pain or discomfort in a better spirit.

If there is any moisture left, the paper will absorb it. While the pot is still warm, you can tear off a piece of wax paper and rub it around the inside of the pot or take a paper napkin, grease it with some grease and wipe it well. For you who have a cast iron top, never put the 'lid back on like it belongs. Turn it upside down and grease the inside of the cast iron top, too. The lid usually collects the most rust. This is because we usually steam or boil things in these pots and all that steam has had hours to co- lect in the cast iron lid. Cleaning Drapes Dear Heloise: I foqnd a good way to cut drapery vacuuming time in half. Just attach four thicknesses of nylon net to the upholstery at. tachment of the vacuum cleaner with masking tape or a r.ub- ber band before vacuuming. No more material will be sucked up and pulled into the tube, either. -Mrs. Fred Schikora Make-Up Tip Dear Heloise: When your m a k e-up "cake" breaks, dump the broken pieces into a plastic sandwich bag or something similiar and crush them into powder form. Then put it back into the compact, press it down and it will become firm again. Of course, it may be lumpier, but you haven't lost as much cake make-up. -Mrs. L. M. No Stuck Fingers Dear Heloise: When undressing baby in the bathroom lor his bath, pin the diaper pins on the hem of your dress or tail of your skirt until dressing time. There are no injured fingers or forgotten pins when you carry him to his dressing area. —Carolyn Miles Nebraska Votes 'Ombudsman' LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) - The Nebraska Unicameral Legislature passed an "ombudsman" bill Tuesday designed to provide a public counsel to process citizen complaints against the government. Under the bill, which must be signed by Gov. Norbert Tiemann, the public counsel 'also could initiate inquiries on his own particularly into administrative acts that might be contrary to law, unreasonable, unfair, oppressive, mistaken, improper in motivation, unclear, inadequately explained or efficiently performed. in- ty, mirror concept that's "a potentially significant advance in automotive safety," according to the National Highway Safety Bureau (N.H.S.B.). The system, which Smith fitted to his 1961 Corvette, works much the same way a periscope docs in a submarine. Three wide-angle mirrors are used. The outer mirror is' mounted on the roof of the car, and picks up images to the side and rear. A middle mirror relays this scene to an inner viewing mirror, which extends nearly the full width of the windshield and is mounted above it. Smith's system was evaluated by Dunlap and Associates, Inc., of Santa Monica, under a $78,000 contract from N.H.S.B. Dunlap and two other firms are evaluating today's cars and trucks in terms of visibility. Their final reports are due this summer. With those in hand, N.H.S.B. is expected to set minimum vision standards for future vehicles. Praises System The Dunlap report on Smith's \ mirror system was submitted; early — in April. Though not yet public, it praises the development, the Los Angeles Times has learned. !"The primary safety feature of the Smith mirror" is that it; eliminates the traditional blind | spots experienced with conventional mirrors, the 22-page evaluation says. , "Ideally, the' driver should !
