TWO—THE MORNING AVALANCHE ^Lubbock, TiiexgSf Thursday, February 19, T942_ 4343 for The Avelq'nche-Jou'rno! Offlcin x rpHERE is no cosmetic lor homely 4- folks iike character. Even the plainest face becomes beautiful in noble and radiant moods.—Hslli.i. The most wasted of all days it on which one hac not laughed. * * * IN THE MAIL D EAR Miss Turner: Our plar»s for conservation and collection of used vital materials haven't been organized enough to be practical. I am offering a plan that may turn out the same Impractical way. Here it is: ;• Tin may become scarce. It is my understanding that tin cans which are not battered, bent or tarnished, may be re-used. ' One woman I know relacquers tin cans and uses them a second time. An other woman tells me that she can use standard sizes, No. 2 and No. 2*4 cans, if the tops are cut out, not off of the cans. She says that lacquered cans (those that look like gold or gilt insidel are especially good 1 for corn, which is difficult to keep. ' My idea is that those of us who buy so much of our food in cans might examine them when emptied, • wash, dry and store them. Then pass them on to someone who raises a garden and has the necessary apparatus for using tin .cans. J Certainly there would be thousands of tin cans ready for next summer. Wouldn't that be a saving? » There is danger attached to the practice of using old tin cans when the inside is rusted or tarnished. Such cans SHOULD BE THROWN AWAY. • Why don't you consult Miss £lara Pratt. She might be able to develop, approve or disapprove the plan. ?• Perhaps some individual could make a small business of handling cans. No house wife will want her kitchen cluttered with empty tin cans. I am passing mine on to a woman in a small town. She raises vegetables to can. Other >-omen might do the same, i If you find anything practical in this idea, please tell us about it ii The Woman's Angle. Thank jou. .• ; Most sincerely. - Mrs. Earl L. Thompson, ; 2321 Eighth St. . P. S. Fulton Lewis, jr., said <*There will be sufficient materials for new lids and rubber for our home canning." D EAR Mrs. Thompson: Thank you for the suggestion on conserving tin through .saving cans "We have not been able to get in touch with Miss Pratt who is a busy as a regiment' but' when we do we will publish her reaction. » * * D EAR Miss Turner: Would you please print a request in your column that the girls who entertain the soldiers from the local air base refrain from removing the insignia or the medals from their blouses? .; Perhaps the young ladies think the insignias are issued to the boys but they are not; the boys bu\ them. If they want them for a cuvenir why not ask the boys for hem? My brother is stationed here. He aid the boys appreciated and en- oyed the entertainments very much but received a "let down" eling when they^put their blouses n and found everything had been emoved but the buttons. I know the bo.vs go to plenty of arties where nothing is taken. 'at on the other hand they go to lenty of parties only to return omc- minus their "jewelry." I am sure the girls just haven't topped to think of the Jnconven- ence they cause the soldiers. Sincerely, A Reader. * * » WOMEN, here's 2-Way relief! I.- Month after month, some wome go on .suffering from periodic func tional pain and discomfort. The they learn the help of CAKDUI! '• Pr DU1 increases appetite and th Probably that is because CAR Several Groups Have Informal Fellowship Hours -^EAR READER: The writer Is -' sure nothing she could write vould influence a girl who wants nsignia bad enough to take them vithout permission, although the nly party given for soldiers which ve have attended we witnessed no pilfering of which you write. We know this does present a roblem to the soldiers \vho must vear their ornaments and who had setter not be caught without them, •specially at inspection time. The case is not local because our voungest brother stationed at .angley Field, Va., told us once hat many girls nagged the soldiers constantly for their coat ornaments and that some of the soldiers gave heirs up and later tried to "swipe" thers from their buddies' coats. Perhaps the girls do not know hat they can buy replicas of the nsignia at the dime stores. Grace ialsell "shop looked" for us and discovered one can buy crossed annons of the. artillery, crossed words of the cavalry, crossed ifles of the' infantry,. army wings f the air corps, an Suttons that ay "Enlisted for Service" at the ostume jewelry counters. Really you can't blame the oung girls too much for wanting he insignia, can jou? Our brothers supplied their sisters with vings, bomb squadron pins, quar- ermaster corps pins and the like. There's something about a soldier's nsignia you know. * * * D EAR Margaret: Your readers gave several ways to remove leel marks from floors, but here is i way to prevent them. When ihoes need new lifts, replace black rubber with brown. The brown rubber will make no unsightly marks, even on linoleum. Mrs. Truman Green, Spur, Texas.
