BETTY CANARY A Needle in Arm Is Worth Two in.. By BETTY CANARY (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) I am writing this as I sit in a hospital bed. I am begin- to think I have a hopeless case on my hands. The r __ w definitely disheartening. Oh, I'm not talking Ibbuf mf physical condition! I came in fiere only for some tests. What is deteriorating is my determination to remain a person who, although hospitalized, still has power over her daily habits. Truth is, my will isn't deteriorating-it's in the last throes. . I have been in hospitals before and I've always been cheerful upon arrival, scattering sunshine as I wended my way through the corridors. In the past I would go hopping about being helpful, strewing sweet admonitions wherever I went ("Let ME wind up that bed, nurse. Goodness sakes alive, you must be worn out by this time of day!") The psychology is, if I am co-operative, they will love me. And probably take extra care in getting all the sponges out before closing the incision. So much for psychology. I concluded that if they have rules, I have rules. Sitting here in my new pink nightgown, I nave reached another conclusion. The big difference in their rules and my rules is that their rules are obeyed. I posted my regulations at the door of my room. I started with a few general rules--"Remember! The hand that pushes the call button writes the checks" and went on to the more explicit, such as, "If awakened before 10:30 a.m., this patient will go for your throat." ., Excuse me. The nurse is here. "Look," I say to her, "evidently you didn't read Rule No. 7. It says, "Patient is not to be interrupted whilereading or writing except for emergencies." . -,. -** "We're going to have our shot," she replied. "Aha! Rule rv. 3! You didn't .read it either! Do you mean BOTH of us are going to have a shot or ... ." "Give us our left arm." "Us? We are to give us our left arm? O.K., nurses." "Let's put .our pen down and we'll put our book over here and turn our lights out." "Don't be ridiculous. We, I mean, I know it's only 9 o'clock and sometimes I stay up until 2." She is gone now. And I distinctly heard her say to the aide in the hall, "Number 23 is one of those. She sure had me fooled." "Just goes to show," the aide said. "Even the ones wearing pink hair ribbons can turn on you." Just goes to show, indeed. Obviously, neither of them read my Rule No. 10 which states, "Staff members will r tain from discussing patient while pretending she is not there." The lights in my room just went off. I suppose they have a master switch somewhere. Well, I shall continue writing by the glow of the little night light there by my door. The night light is situated slightly to the left of where I posted my rules. Say, that doesn't look like my set of rules. They have fastened something over my poster. It's a placard. It says, "Do Not Disturb. It is signed, "The 3rd floor staff." KNIT A STOLE Often it's the little things will very likely attract more at- that count. Knit a Mole and tenttoo and compliments than a taow that's tute.

Speaking on the topic "Higher Education of Women In India" was Dr. Meheroo F. Jus- sawalla, visiting lecturer in Economics at Hood College, and Principal (President) and Professor of Applied Economics at Osmania University College for Women in Hyderabad, India. Dr. Jussawalla stated that "in social and economic changes, the greatest crisis is education." m India, "women have caught up with their male counterparts. No avenues have been closed, thus allowing women to contribute sizeably to the development of India. "Reforms paved the way for women to get to schools and colleges" thereby bringing about co-education and a change in the whole structure of Indian life. Mission schools were first, later other schools developed." However, "It was political freedom that led to women's educational unities-' This hi turn permitted "women to set social standards. Women do much better than men," even to getting better jobs, thus "causing the men to become quite frustrated." There are "advantages hi hiring women, hi that they are more conscientious and do not unionize. Though they are active politically, they do not contribute much toward uplifting rural areas, because they do not understand the needs of these people. But this is the group which truly needs their help." Prior to the speech, the group was entertained by several girls from Hood College singing folk The Women's Democratic League, in its May 27 meeting at Winchester Hall, heard a talk ai the importance of making a will. Mrs. Mildred Fisher, program chairman, introduced the speaker. Thomas M. Eichelberger. Register of Wills for . Frederick County. The speaker told why a will should be made, what can be done with one, and what happens without one. He stated that 60 per cent of the people do not make wills, but that young people as well as the elderly should attend to this detail, since it is the cheapest and best way of deciding how one's belongings are disposed of. When there Is no will, the state makes disposal of one's belongings. Also, when there is no will, it is sometimes the beginning of the end of good relationship between children and relatives. Eichelberger has written a pamphlet, "Make a Will For Those You Love," which may be fmtatMii at any bank or at the office of the Register of Wills. Preceding the talk, the bee* Mrs. Doris Watte, 1st vfee- prayer by Mrs. Doris Carter, chaplain, salute to the flag, UuttuUrS 8D0 r*3SpOHs%a Mrs. Elizabeth KnUl reported on the quarterly meeting of the United Democratic Women*!

POLLY'S POINTERS Nail Polish Brings Sheen Back to Pearl Buttons By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY-Mrs. E. D. wanted to know how she could bring back the sheen to pearl buttons that have become dull from laundering. Isuggestclear nail polish, ff that makes them too glossy, try the frosty clear, which might look better. They can be retouched any time it is needed. I think Irma had a good idea for ipyicit^r candles fit in the holders but we would hesitate about letting the wax mat melts off run down the dram. It immediately hardens when reaching the inside of the cold drain, even when flushed wjtthhptwat- er.-ESTHER - · · - " * " ' Thanks for the reminder, Esther. A cloth or paper towel could be put over the drain to catch the wax and then both removed and put hi the trash can.-POLLY DEAR POLLY- After the family has gone to bed, I like to "pick up" the cluttered living room so when the sun comes up I will have at least one straight room. After washing any snack trays, carrying out the pop bottles and newspapers, I was always faced withfull ash trays, which I was afraid to empty, so I always left mem. One night, I decided I could not bear to smell the stale contents, so I took them to the kitchen and looked around to see how I could safely dispose of them. I dumped all the contents of the ash trays hi the center of a piece of aluminum foil, folded it up to make a neat, air-tight, package, then squeezed this in my hand. No more worrying! I washed the ash trays and went to bed with a clear mind.-JUDY DEAR JUDY-A dash of baking soda over the ashes and cigarette butts would be a bit of double insurance if you are not too sure about any remaining sparks. Why not ask each one hi the family to carry his own tray and bottle back to the kitchen before taking off for bed-not much for them to do and would save you some steps? -POLLY DEAR POLLY-While sewing on the machine, I discovered mat the material was being pulled. I sharpened my old needle, with an emery board, just as though I was sharpening a pencil, and the needle worked The Frederick CivinetteClub held its annual covered dish supper June 2, at 6:30 p.m. at "The Farm" of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Romsburg, Bethel Road.

DEAR POLLY-The lighting fixture in our kitchen holds two bulbs and is not too easy to take apart and put back together again. When one bulb burns out, we always put hi two new bulbs so we do not have to take the fixture apart so soon. I return the partially used bulb to a carton but mark it "U" so it will only be put hi a lamp or other place where changing would be easy. I always clean the fixtures when they are apart for bulb changing.-MRS. H. L.
