(uiifci Im, Heloise Dear Heloise: May I offer something that I'm sure will help many others as it has me? The manufacturer of a household glue, which is sold in a tube, added to the general instructions: "to prevent cap from slicking, add a drop of oil to the threads of the cap and tube." Heloise, this Worked so well, .1 use it all the time now on any bottle, jar or tube of "sticky stuff." When the contents are glue, paint or some other inedible, I use regular, light machine oil. However, when doing a pancake syrup hot- tie, cough medicine or anything else that will be taken internally, I use a drop of cooking oil. Try it — it works! "Sassy" You're a smart cookie to think of that. Why hasn't someone thought about that before? Heloise • * * Dear Heloise: How to remove wax from a rug? Simple! Take a spoon and scrape off as much as possible. Then grab that box of facial tissues or white paper napkins. Lay 3 or 4 thicknesses on top of the spilled wax, using your iron set on synthetic or medium — and just iron away. As soon as the grease appeal's on your paper, remove immediately so that you won't iron it back into your rug. Replace with fresh tissues. Repeat process until napkins no longer absorb any grease. A safe dry-cleaning fluid might be effective. In some cases, it should be used sparingly to avoid damage to the latex backing, but it is doubtful that any will be needed if the above method is used. A Reader * * * Letter Of Love: Dear Heloise: I want to thank you for all your helpful hints all these past years. I \v«s so dumb when first married and how your hints and books helped me! I fooled my dear mother-in- law into thinking I was a whiz of a housewife. I couldn't have done it without you. J.M. * * * Dear Heloise: When I worked, it was difficult to prepare scal- Joped potatoes after I came home because of the time needed to prepare and bake. The night before I would peel potatoes, slice them one-eigtith inch (hick and drop in boiling water (just long enough to boil and then drain them) to prevent from turning dark. I would make the white sauce, combine with and place sliced potatoes in a baking dish and add other seasonings. In the morning, I would place the baking dish in the oven with the timer set so the potatoes would be baked by the time I arrived home from work.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS THURS., APRIL, a, 1975 'Home Office' Deduction Denied By MICHAEL J. CONLON WASHINGTON (UPI) — A recent court ruling may have ended a tax break enjoyed by some professionals —the practice of charging off "home office" expenses on income tax returns. The case, ironically, involved a lawyer for the Internal Revenue Service who deducted §100 of his 52,100 yearly apartment rent tie- cause, he said, he worked there occasionally in his off-time. At first, according to the Research Group In^ which reports on such mat- tors for the legal profession, the IRS disallowed the claim, only to be reversed by the U:S. Tax Court. Prospective Graduate Honored Miss Susan Hancock of 3709 68th St. will be honored at 4 p.m. today with a desert party in the home of Mrs. Howard D. Smith of 4509 13th St. Miss Elizabeth Smith also was a hostess. Miss Hancock is a candidate for May graduation from Monterey High school. Special guests included her mother, Mrs. Kenneth Hancock. Tlie court found that the 'lawyer's apartment .expenses were related to his business. But on Jan. 20 of this year, according to the group, ah appeals court said the cost of incidental business carried on somewhere other than a person's main place of business is not deductible so far as rent goes. The court also ruled that Mrs. Kleinniaii Feted Mrs. Harry Kleinman was honored at a layette shower Monday in the iiome of Miss Rosemary Palton of 1U03 70Ui St. Miss Mjckie Jennings was cohostess. Mrs. J.C. Hodges, mother of the honoree, attended as special guest. the lawyer's regular office always was available to him at the times he worked at home and that reading and otherwise working at home was simply a part of his job. The lawyer involved has decided not to appeal, so the precedent may be' established. In any case the research group said persons claiming a home office expense deduction should be able to prove the work at home is required—not just a preference — and that their regular office is not available to them in the xftie 7520 34th CENTER 792-4663 LEVI BIG BELLS ALL COTTON Jack Davis Western Wear (Across From T«h) You want a dress and jacket to wear to the office and later for dinner in town... this is it, in 100% polyester...lilac with beige and pink contrasting stripes... sized 6-14..* \ i margrfs larnode C J Spoth Plains Mall and Plainview Monr*f»y Center 792-5521 PRICES 6000 IN T.S.&Y. 5* TO $1.00 STORES AND FAMILY CENTER THRU SATURDAY - WHILE QUANTITIES LAST!
