She never reminds me that sometimes she had to ask the same question two or three times before I would answer her in one,of my letters.. So now after I've read hers I carry it in my purse. As : think of things I want to tel her, I write notes on the back of the envelope. When I finally sit down to write, I read her letter first and answer her questions. Next I make comments on news shi has written and ask any ques tions I might have. Then, I add the news from my own notes. This way I have a gooi memory-freshener! 1 Melva Barnet MRS; WILLIAM KEITH SHOFNER JR. altar by her twin brothers, wore _ _ was frfi ss Mary Ellen Sweetser before her afternoon a formal gown of sheer organza weddin( . at Elkins Community Church and imparted Chantilly lace. = defined the mandarin Lace neckline, the and accented Empire the full bodice bishop sleeves with wide cuffs.

No matter here lamps and ceiling, lights re placed, somehow the desir- d effect isn't attained. This frustration is likely to be perienced when one wants to ght up a particular area -- an rt wall, a piano, a game table n cntranceway, a work table o do so properly often has re uired major wall and ceiling istallations which can be ex ensive. Witli track lighting -- th ind formerly seen mainly · a m u s e u m s , galleries, com. merciat showrooms and the like -- now available for residentia se, the task may be made eas er, especially for do-it-yoursel ers. ' Lamp holders can be placei anywhere along a power trac o that one can change th ighting in an area at whim Then, too, the lamps are likel to use only 30, 40 or 50 watts nstead of the higher 60 to 15 valts likely to be used in lamp ir ceiling light. DO-IT-YOURSELF Installation ,of these lightin systems is touted as a simpl' do-it-yourself experience, ai vises one manufacturer. Th track is placed against the are one chooses, and the location of mounting holes are marker Holes are drilled at the mar ings, and the track is fastene to the surface. After that, 11 landholders -- spheres, cyli dcrs, squares -- are inserted.

Dear Heloise: From experience in previou: years, I know that my "camp goers" come home with jus bout half of the things the; ook to camp. This year I made complet ists of everything I packed fo hem, and taped them to th nside of their suitcases. Now when they start to pack or home (hopefully) no item vill be left behind. Mom Well, they will at least know omething Is missing and perhaps will make an effort to find t. (Hopefully.) ' Heloise -ETTER OF LOVE Dear Heloise: To allow my wife to sleep a half-hour longer in the morning, instead o {having to get up o plug In her electric curlers and waiting for them to heat up, I plugged in the curlers to an automatic timer. . Now, when she wakes up, the curlers are hot enough to use. K. McCarthy Dear Heloise: I gathered all my tired anc "retired" plastic flowers anc greenery together into one big bunch--all colors and varieties I put them into a wire hang ing basket and swung it outside my bathroom window. Breezes sway it -- sunshine makes it gleam -- raindrops add sparkling drops. I think it's great.
