Slated in Elberts ook "And what the Dueseir erg could do wilh lhat horse- ower! 89 mph in second, 116 iph in high--a stretch of road yould disappear before the car ould peak." The idea to form a company o produce the car came about hen E. L. Cord, the backer ecaine associated with Fred S. Duesenberg, the engineer, and owed to make "The Worlds finest ^-Jlolor Car."

Phone Mrs. Elanor Williams 521-5373 Dispose Of Grease The Easiest Way ear Heloise: Since I have no exhaust fan i my kitchen, I do not like fry bacon and smell up the ouse. So I always put the aeon on 'a rack and place the ack in a pan of water and ook under the broiler. That's ot new, I know... Bui my problem was how to isnose or Ihe greasy water, rter testing, I found that if let the pan sit and cool fo oom temperature some of the rcasc would congeal and I ould pour it through two thick- esses of paper toweling cupped the sink'drain. When the water is all out of 1C pan, I lift the paper towcl- ng gently, squeeze slightly and icn throw the whole thing in plastic-lined garbage can, nd wipe the rest of the grease out of the pan with more towels, Julia Switliuk Dear Heloise: Plain old household'ammonia mixed with equal parts of water n 'a spray bottle gets: thosq fingerprints off walls, cleans nirrqrs, ceramic tiles In the shower and plumbing fixtures beautifully. Be.sure to keep your work area well ventilated. Mrs. Kathy Lacey LETTER OF LAUGHTER Dear Heloise: In household chores, ranked A to 2, 1 rate a so-so middle. But I'm perplexed, I must confess pondering this riddle. Why do friends forget to call when my house is sparkly clean? They only drop iii, unannounced, when I'd rather not be seen! Priscilla Lenox Dear Heloise: When you buy the 27" x 40 diapers, fold them over (in half) .and stitch along the selvage edge. They are open on the oilier two sides so they dry quickly, but amazingly thej lay folded and save the extra 'first" folding time. Mrs. T.R. Smallwood Dear Heloise: Utilize leftover vegetable oi: in which onion, rjngs have been cooked. Next time around serve "tasty talers." French fry pota toes in Ihe same onion oil Result: · economical onion-fla vorcd- frcnclr fries. Chicken cooked in the same onion oil comes out yummy!
