MfttrtM thurtdey, Nb. 4, W§ A GAL WHO REALLY HAS a good thing going for her is Heloise who writes the syndicated household hints column. Not only does she sell her column to newspapers from coast-to-coast and makes thousands of dollars from it, she also gets thousands of housewives to write her material for her and never pays them a cent I That's about as good a racket as a writer ever gets, and If you think I am jealous of her you are right. If 1 could think up something equally as sneaky, I'd be on easy street right now, - o - NOW 1 READ, ENJOY, AND USE many of Heloise 1 s hints, but of course it would never do to tell her that. After all, does Gimbels compliment Macys; does California acknowledge Florida's wonderful climate; and does that other Algona paper admit they read the UDM ? I even have a few household hints 1 could send Heloise, but since I can make more money on them by using them In my own column, that's precisely what 1 plan to do. Of course, Grace's hints aren't apt to make her reader's housekeeping go any smoother, but that's entirely beside the point. - o - HELOJSE'S READERS MAKE A big thing out of ways to use nylon net and I'll have to admit the stuff is practically a miracle fabric. Nylon net can be used for everything from pan scrubbers to Christmas decorations and party dresses and I'll be hard- put to find an equally effective material for Grace's hints. About as near as I can come to it Is worn-out, cotton-knit, men's underwear. There's lots of uses for that beside the obvious one of letting your husband wear it. Underwear rags are wonderful for wiping up spills, cleaning the sink and oven, emergency handkerchiefs, polishing windows, removing nail polish and dusting. Just keep your eyes on your husband's drawers, gals. The minute they begin to droop, grab them I - o - LOTS OF HOMEMAKERS, ESPECIALLY In Florida, have trouble with bugs in the cupboards. Unless you cover everything tightly, they get In the flour, the sugar and the cereal. I haven't yet entirely solved the problem, but I'm learning to cope with it, without throwing out perfectly good food. Just use lots of celery seed In your cooking ! That way, you just pick out the specks' that move; the others are either celery seed or bugs that are dead and thus won't do any harm, anyway. (Do you suppose this is the many people refuse to stay for dinner at our house ?) , - o - A LOT OF HELOISE'S FOLLOWERS seem to have solved Interior decorating problems with Ingenious maneuver ings with paint, decals and curtains over eyesores and they convert all sorts of junk Into useful and/or decorative conversation pieces. I never was any good at transforming old chamber pots Into ivy planters, but I think I know the best household hint for home decoration yet. It is if your furniture and accessories don't match, and if you can't stand your color scheme, throw the whole blamed mess out and start over with all new furnishings I - o - SO MUCH OF LIFE IN THIS day and age is devoted to status symbols. We have to keep up with the Joneses or at least give the impression that we are doing so. The trouble with this process is by the time you get almost even with them, the Joneses refinance 1 I do have one hint that can enhance your status and still not cost you money. You know how steak knives cut your melmac dinnerware, don't you ? Well, my hint is to use steak knives when you serve hamburger. That way your plates will be all cut up and people will think you have steak all the time I - o HELOISE'S FOLLOWERS HAVE all sorts of hints for efficient grocer)' shopping and so does Grace. Before you go to the store, collect all your "7$ off' and 100 extra trading stamp^qupons and put them in an envelope. Consult the ads For the specials, note them down and take an inventor)' of your staple needs. Make out your list with the items written in the same order they are found in the store. Place this list on the top of the debris in your purse. Grab your other purse, but don't discover this until you have the cart pushed half way down the canned-goods aisle in the super market. I do this all the time and it allows me to shop with wild abandon. Of course, when we get home I find we are still all out of toilet paper and laundry detergent and I've bought another box of Rice Krispies when I already had two boxes on the shelf, but I need a little excitement in my life. I love to live dangerously 1 - o - MY FAVORITE USER OF Heloise's nylon net is my seven- year old niece, Debby Pratt, who sent me some scrubbers made of it for Christmas. More recently Debby sent me a pot-holder and a very nicely written letter, both works of her own hands. Could be that Debby will grow up to have her own household hints column. Meanwhile she certainly knows how to please her auntie. - o - BIRTHDAYS DURING THE WEEK OF Jan. 31 through Feb. 6 include Clare Sheakley, Tom Phillips, Mark Will, Virgil Gunder, Jean Goodman, Rev.

This is Mrs. Leo Gardner's recipe: 4 to 6 pork chops 1 cup catsup 3/4 cup sweet pickle syrup 1/2 cup chopped onion i/4 cup chopped sweet pickle 2 tsp. dry mustard Brown pork chops in fry pan and cover with the combined remaining ingredients.
