It works on some carpets, but then there are thousands of differnet kinds of carpets nowadays . . . you could ruin yours! In view of this fact, I sent her letter to Dr. Melvin Baevsky in Washington, D.C., vho is an authority on these things and here is his reply: Dear Heloise: Thank you for requesting my comments on the very interesting letter from your reader describing a method for removing blood stains with peroxide on rugs and carpets. With very fresh blood stains we have found that the safest and most effective method of removal is to absorb or wipe up as much as possible with paper towels, then flush with cold water and, if necessary, to remove the last traces of any blood, a light application of household ammonia. I repeat, use cold or at most lukewarm water, because hot water would tend to coagulate the blood and set the stain, making removal much more difficult. Actually, AIDS (Association of Interior Decor Specialists) recommends the use of peroxide only as a last effort to remove old, set in bloodshains which might remain after all other methods have failed. And then only after testing a very small area of carpet to determine whether the peroxide is safe to use. This is because peroxide is an oxidizing bleach and can affect the dyes used in many carpets. In this case, I feel that your reader was quite lucky. Dr. Melvin M. Baevsky Director Technoieal and Consumer Affairs And we do thank Doctor Baevsky very much. And while we are talking about peroxide, folks, for good ness gracious don't use the kind that you bleach hair with . . . use household 3 per cent peroxide. O.K.? Heloise Dear Heloise: To keep sandwiches from drying out when you are making several at a time, cover them loosely with a clean, dampened cloth or paper tone], I find it's a lot faster than putting each one at a time in • plastic bag. Janie R. Dear Heloise: I wish I had discovered this hiint many a year ago. Since J am always on a diet, I use liquid sweetener on my cereal.

He'oisc 1 Dear Heloi&e: J know of only two reasons to try bacon w. strips. „ ,it'»j traditional and it looks good, i My favorite method is to finely dice a package of bacon by cutting across the slices, dumping it in the skillet and frying it with only an occasional stir. 1 also find the bacon dices better if partially frozen. Any cooked bacon may be frozen in a plastic bag and is always at the ready for salads, baked potatoes, or any time you. don't feel like cooking bacon. ' Bacon fried this way is more convenient to eat. and it's great for bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwiches because the mayonnaise acts as "mortar" to hold the loose bacon in place. ge: Sarah, Mrs. Harvey Figland. 905 W.

Their courtship and marriage and birth of their daughter, Mrs. Lane followed, family moved Rose Wilder In 1894 the from South Dakota to a farm in Mansfield, Mo. where Mrs. Wilder lived until she was 90 years old. Of her books, there are 10, six centering around South Dakota's De Smet. Most of the authors of South Dakota, have followed the pattern of telling about life on the prairie. Like L. Frank Baum. Though Dorothy of "Wizard of Oz" fame calls Kansas home, Olsen said Baum was a South Dakotan actually writing about his hometown-of Aberdeen. But because he didn't want to stir up the town he wrote of, he changed the locale to Kansas. Some 14 books are numbered in the Oz series. Perhaps best known among South Dakota's children's authors of today is Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve. Growing up on the Rosebud Sioux Indian published another book about the Oahe dam for younger readers in 1969. Glen Rounds, who now resides in North Carolina, writes and illustrates books about many of his experiences while in South Dakota. Winnie Crandall Saunders grew up in Dakota Territory and wrote her "Daughters of Dakota" in 1960. Audree .Dustad, author of "Dakota Sons" grew up in this state and now lives in New York City.
