Mary Sue and her husband Jim, an appraiser for a logistics contractor, hired Wright last October to build the house, ft wasn't long before Mary Sue asked Wright for a job. Wright had watched Mary Sue search for, and then dig ,he dirt out of, an old well that had been filled in years ago. He was impressed with her determination and s t a m i n a as she shoveled dirt for three days, so TC hired her. Mrs. Mitchell, an attractive 35 - year - old housewife, hadn't worked since she quit a clerical Job in 1960. But Wright expected her to keep up with carpenter Dud Robinson.

SIZE IS PROBLEM Her size -- Slightly over five 'cct tall and 100 pounds -proved a problem at f i r s t carrying the heavy bundles of wooden shingles up to the roof. But then she devised a slide for .hem. Wright said she is a good shingler, f a s t e r than most men because her perception of what size ceoVir shingle which would 'it a particular spot turned out .0 be almost perfect. "I learned everything by trial and error," she said. The two men would tell her to "dig in and start" on whatever job she tackled. "If I did something wrong two or three times, then they would correct me," she said. Mrs. Mitchell has missed only four days of work sinct she started last October. Wright said that aside from los ing a fingernail to a droppec brick and shredding the bel bottom of her paint-spattered blue jeans when she walked too near a power saw, she hasn' had any injuries.

"He final- y got so he could tell people and let them laugh. Now, he's proud of me." The most noticeable reaction though, has come from delivery men and subcontractors on the iob, Mary Sue said. She said she was on the roof shingling one day while a deliv- e r y man stood on the ground and watched for 3 long time. Finally he asked, "Are you boy or a girl?" Household Hint Save all the cottage cheese paper containers, for they make inexpensive c o n t a i n e r s f o r freezing foods. Wash out with warm soap suds, rinse and dry, and they are ready for use. Dear Heloisc: Here is my idea for making chocolate c h i p cookies. When adding the extra chips o the dough, 1 save a handful arid put them aside. After I make all the cookies can with the chips, I scrape he leftover dough into a ball ind press the set-aside chips nto it. Then I continue to use up the remaining chips. Linda Sayles Wonderful idea! Bet your k i d d i e s love "Mommy's" cookies. Hug them tor me. Heloise Dear Heloise: For the reader who used a dry wash cloth to wipe out the bathroom basin, May I suggest another way? Make a pad of about 8 or 10 thicknesses of nylon net. Lay it under the cake of soap. It catches the drippings. Then use the pad to wash out the basin and the tub.
