IMIffllllffllflffll««H Like Old-Fashioned General Store Shopping Centers May Get 'New' Look tad attended a secretarial school with no Idea of a career other than marriage and motherhood, but she has that, too. She and her husband, Joseph, who is maintenance man on all ;he family properties, have four toys, now 9 to 14. _^ By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Adopting the architecture of their locales may bring shopping centers full circle. They will look more like exttntions of old-fashioned general stores and neighborhood shops than the structures of masonry we have known in the last decades. One new shopping center, Olde Mistick Village, Conn., near Mystic, Seaport,, so realistically resembles a little early American New England village, circa 1720, that people Hints From Heloise-Back Scratcher Used To Get Seeds Out Of Long Squash Dear Heloise: The other day a friend gave me a zucchini squash about 16' but, ong and 4" in diameter. I decided to stuff it zucchini squash that size is full of seeds and the problem was to get them out. I first cut the two ends off the squash to see how much space I had to work . w i t h ; . i t was only an inch. 1 kept thinking, "Oh, if only I had a tiriy hand." Then it hit. me-- I do have a tiny, tiny hand. I got out a plastic'back scrat- cher (a present I had never used) and proceeded to take put the seeds as far as it would, go. then turned the squash around and got the last of them from the side. I had a little tunnel and clean as can DC, so I stuffed .away. : The little back scratches .did the trick! j Sue Morrissey Dear Heloise: . To wash "Fido," the best Dear Heloise: Today on the way to the supermarket, I noticed a young man walking down the streel with a clipboard in his.hand. I thought how handy it would be stop to inquire whether "the condominiums" are for rent, says Joyce Regan, 37, its manager It docs not include homes, but it has already inspired the planners of one new large apartment complex in Rhode Island to announce publicly its intention of patterning a new shopping center after Mistick. Mrs. Regan, a n . attractive, energetic woman, .and her twin brother Jerry Olson, who had the basic ideas for the contraction on the land of their iarents,,sees its uncommercial atmosphere of 46 shops in 24 houses as "the shopping center of the future." CHARMINQ SETTING In a charming setting, the gambrel roofs, salt boxes jams and the like of rough lewn shingle exteriors are stained in reds, blues, browns to have a clipboard to fasten my shopping list to. It would be so easy to cross off items as they are placed in the shopp ing cart. I could also clip on the stor coupons I planned to use tha day.

It's a small metal platform about ten inches in circumference and has three free-wheeling wheels underneath. The laundry basket is easier to pull, and it sure saves wear and tear on the bottom of the Gadgeteer of Fayetteville, a daughter, July 2 3 . · ' · ; " ' Mr. and Mrs. Marvin L.

Mrs. Kathy Wendt Dear Heloise: A helpful trick I have when tiling a floor, is to use a square of tile as a light-switch cover. It's both decorative and easy to clean. Mrs; L. W- Carretta Dear Heloise: I have a 6-month-old baby who is very hard to bathe. She is too bfg for her baby tub and too slippery for the bathtub. To solve the problem, I fill the bathtub with six to eight inches of water and put a hand towel on the bottom. Then I take her plastic feeding chair, remove the pad and put a towel in the chair. Into the Tub with the chair! Now my baby can squirm and kick as much as she wants because she is securely strapped in the ohair. And Mommy has two hands free for washing and playing. Never leave baby alone in the water. Accidents can happen and chairs can tip over.

SHORT PERIOD In fact, in eight months it has not only become attractive as a shopping center, selling typical needs from antiques and beans to wicker, with the usual complement of banks, bakeries, laundries, shoe stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and the rest but people have surprised them by making their visit an all-day siiopping experience, she says.
