June 20. 1972 By FOLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY-My Pel Peeve is with shoe manufacturers who make shoes with fancy ties, often odd lengths, but do not provide the stores with extra ties. These laces are usually so vital to the good looks of the shoes that when they break the shoes have lost their style. -NANCY DEAR POLLY-First I want to -thank you for the many helpful hints I have found in the column.andjhen used to make my lifeeasier~"~' I want to tell Irene who complained about changing typewriter ribbons that 1 use a pair of disposable rubber surgical gloves when changing my ribbon and then wash the gloves on my hands with full strength dish detergent. -ALMA DEAR POLLY-As I do secretarial work Irene's complaint about changing typewriter ribbons being such a messy job caught my eye. Irene must be using an obsolete typewriter because I change my ribbon quite frequently and do not mind a bit. Mine has the ribbon in a cartridge so all to be done is destroy the old cartridge and slip the new one on and with no mess and it is done in a couple of minutes. Irene, the inventors really have been at work. -CAROL POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY—I have a new sweater made of 100 per cent virgin acrylic fibers (Japan) that has a strong odor resembling that of a wet dog that has just had a bath. I have washed it in that well-known cold water solution for wool and the odor was very strong while the sweater was wet and remained after it was dry. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. -NADINE Polly's Pointers DEAR POLLY—As a safety feature the new walker-jumpers for babies have a plastic sleeve over the spring mechanism to keep little fingers from being pinched. I have the older type without these sleeves so I unscrewed the springs and covered them with cardboard tubes such as those from waxed paper, foil. etc.. and then replaced the springs. If such springs could not be removed the tubes could be cut up one side, placed around the springs and then taped in place. Some tubes may have to be cut to fit the length of the springs. -MRS. R.L.W. DEAR POLLY-My husband is in the construction business and has to meet the public daily so he does not like to wear patched jeans. When his pants show the first sign of wear 1 cut a patch from the back part of the leg of a wornout pair and sew it inside the front leg. When the patched pair wears out I feel I have Feally gotterfmy money's worth. A dollar saved is like four or five bucks earned -MRS. R.K. You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite homemaking idea. Pet Peeve. Polly's Problem or solution to a problem. Write Polly in care of the Pampa Daily News. P.O. Box 2198. Pampa.

(Staff Photo by John Ebling) Quotable Quotes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Some quotable quotes from women during the week: Bella Abzug, Fighting for her seat in Congress, when asked what would be her future if she loses: "I have to tell you that my father had a meat market, and one of the customs was plucking one chicken at a time. I have not made any decisions for the next chicken." Kathy Gower. 21. of Dayton. Ohio, in exile in Montreal with her husband who fled the draft: "The only thing I miss is Peter Pan peanut butter ... It's scary to have a husband. It's such a responsibility. In our situation, it's a case of two people liking each other more than they love each other." Joan Baez, folk singer, in an interview: "For me revolution means change, but the one change that the human race hasn't gotten itself together to make is recognizing the sanctity of life ... Inside this country you're not allowed to murder. Overseas it is yes—yes plus medals. It seems we could be capable of changing that." Shirley Chisholm. running for the Democratic nomination for president: "To the nation's leaders it seems more important to kill the Vietnamese than it is to house Americans." Stephanie Allan, aide to Angela Davis, explaining why the black militant cut short a planned nationwide tour: "The reason is very simple. We don't have much of Angela Davis left and we've got to keep what we have ... She's literally out on her feet." Mrs. Donna McClung. 19. of Rapid City, a bride of six months, who fought hei way out of the ravaging flood waters that swept over her trailer home and helped save a 6- yearold boy from next door: "God, I'm so thankful I don't have any little kids or anything ... Before I go back to work I just want to get some of the mud out of my house. It's all we have." Designer Vera Maxwell, showing her fall collection in New York: "I like long dresses during the day.
