READERS' CLEARING HOUSE
Spring Tip
Mist S. E., Washington
I have found that in the
long run It is a great time and
energy saver not to sew white
collars and cuffs on spring
dresses. If, when you buy a
new dress that has removable
white collar and cuffs, you take
the time to sew snaps on them
it saves a lot of bother later
on after each washing. I notice
thgt some of the dress manu
facturers are finally getting
this through their heads, but
I have been doing It for years,
and believe me, it is worth the
few minutes you spend when
the dress is new. I have also
done this with shoulder pads
for years.
Now I wonder If some of the
readers could come to my aid.
I have not been able to find
anything that will keep my
crinolines nicely starched. I
have used all kinds of starches,
but the crinoline sema to go
limp in no time even with the
best of them. Some don’t seem
to do much good at all. I
would certainly appreciate
hearing of some never-fall
method for doing this.
Thanks for all the tips from
you good readers. I have been
an ardent “RCHer” for years,
and would be lost without It.
I send lots of the recipes and
hints to my sister who lives in
Oregon, and she agrees with
me that Washington readers
are a wonderful bunch of peo
ple. Many thanks!

Doll Pattern?
Mrs. W. M., Washington
Does anyone know where I
could find a pattern for mak
ing a “bed doll” using the
ready-made doll? I had in
mind crocheting the costume
but would be delighted to
have any kind of pattern, as I
could probably work it out if
I just had something basic to
start with. Thanks.

Garden Ornaments?
Mrs. L. W. § Washington
Do any of the readers have
any suggestions for inexpen
sive, homemade garden orna
ments? I wonder how much
cost and labor is involved in
making your own lily pond ’
What about making a bird
bath or trellis? I would like to
start some projects like these,
but don’t want to tackle too
much, as my time is limited.

Heat Basement?
Mrs. L. R. 8., Alexandria
I would like a solution for
heating our basement which
we are in the process of finish

room. Has anyone tried with
success taking the ends off the
WHY GROW OLD?
Shed Winter Weight;
Follow 9-Day Diet
BY JOSEPHINE LOWMAN
If I didn’t publish my 9-Day
Reducing Diet each spring
many of my readers would not
feel that spring had arrived
For lots of women my 9-oay
Diet has become a proof that
spring Is here, lust like the
first robins and the budding
trees.
I know from the letters I
receive that many women look
for this feature each vear be
cause they depend on It to
bring them a quick loss of a
few pounds they have gained
during the winter.
So here I am singing of
calorie counting rather than
of romance. Happily, the two
are often correlated Calorie
counting may lead to romance
and vice versa.
Each day for nine days I will
print the menus for the follow
ing day. so that you can get
the necessary supplies in the
house. Here are tomorrow’s
menus:

Store Winter Clothes?
Mrs. J. £., Washington
I am a new bride. I would
like to know some points about
storing winter clothes for the
summer. I have heard that if
you live in an air-conditioned
apartment you do not need to
worry about moths. Is this
true? If not. Is there any way
to do this without getting the
smell of moth balls all over
everything?

Ice Cream Recipe?
Mrs. R. C., Washington
Does anyone have a recipe
for homemade butter-crunch
ice cream? I used to love this
when I was a child in Con
necticut, but I have never
found it anywhere else. I don’t
know what would be in it, but
how I remember eating It with
chocolate “shot” on it. Mmmm,
good! I would certainly appre
ciate it if any of the readers
could send in a recipe for this.

Buy a Dog?
Mrs. C. Q. T., Falls Church
What do the readers think
about getting a puppy for a
nine-year-old boy? I don’t
want to have a dog If I have
to take the complete* respon
sibility for the little pet, but
my son has been pestering me
for over a year to have a
puppy, and he says he will take
care of it. What has been the
experience of other mothers
with this? Do children of this
age really do their part to care
for their pets, or does it always
end up with mother having to
do the whole job?
Also, I would like to hear
comments about what kind of
a dog would make a good pet
for a boy this age. I don’t
want a dog that is too big for
the house, yet I don’t like toys
and many of the smaller
breeds. They seem too yappy
for my taste. Also, I think
the boy would enjoy a little
bigger dog. What do the read
ers think?
