OUR NEIGHBORS By SALLY MEREDITH The longer I live in Greenbelt, the better I like it. (I know, I know, the longer I live in Green belt the less some people like it.) What got me started on this line of thinking was the swell perma nent I got at the local beauty shop. It’s the first one I ever had that didn’t make me want to hide for a week until the “frizziness” wore off. Let’s see —what’s been going on in the social world? Well—little Carlleen Andestad, of 6-B Hillside, was 2 years old Tuesday. Four teen of her young neighbors helped her celebrate with plenty of cake and ice cream. Her grand mother sent some of the cutest party favors I ever saw. They were handle holders made of candy. Carlleen is the daughter of Johnny and Eilleen Andestad.— Attending the installation of offi cers of the American Legion Post and Auxiliary at Annapolis yes terday were Mrs. Thomas Mc- Namara, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Hedges, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Frenman.

Guests, besides Mrs. Perkins, were Mes dames McCarl, Kincheloe, Houl ton, Fosnight, Nelson, Slye, Har ris, Murphy, Pfeiffer, Wood and Kyle. The Perkins are moving to Newark, N. J., where Mr. Perkins has taken a position with the White Laboratories, Inc.

Mrs. Delpha McCarl was named secretary and treasurer, Mrs. Cyril Turner, chaplain, and Mrs. Edward C. Kaighn, historian. How Many Nuts To the Cupful A nutty formula for the con sumer who is too smart to cook by rule of thumb methods has been worked out by the Bureau oi Home Economic?. It answers the bewildering question, how many nuts must you shell to get a cup of nut meats? The unshelled equivalent of a cup of nut meats varies with the kind of nut, of course. Here are some for the more popular varie ties. A half pound of peanuts will give you a cup of nut meats. Slightly less than a pound of fil berts will make a level cup. It takes an even pound of almonds, and a bit more than a pound of English walnuts to shell out a measuring cup of their meats. To get a cup of black walnut meats, you’ll need about two pounds of the unshelled nuts. Why? By Sally Meredith Why do the fat girls stay fat, When it’s easy to have a good fig ger? V/hy are the thin ones like that, When it’s simple to be a bit big ger? In every newspaper that’s printed You’ll see at least one slimming diet But I’d bet all the gold ever minted That nine out of ten never try it. A gal will try hard to please men By buying a silly new hat. But why do the thin ones stay thin? Why are the fat ones still fat? 9 fcuq, ai My Own Stale “No, I’m not a millionaire. But I DO own a store. I’m a member of a co-operative which my neighbors and I own. The co-operative gives me more for my money which is natural —since it is my store and aims to serve me. If I bought anything elsewhere that I could get at my co-op, I feel I’d be cheating myself. FOOD STORE BEAUTY SHOP A\ j/F Surprise* your friends one that flatters and “does things” for you.

GREENBELT COOPERATOR Scouts Wear Uniforms In Honor of Founder In memory of Juliette Low, Girl Scout founder, whose birthday falls in the week of October 22 to November 1, the Girl Scouts of America have designated that week as National Girl Scout Week. Juliette Low, who was born in 1860, held the first scout meeting in a stable on her estate in Sav annah, Georgia, which was later willed upon her death in 1927 to the Girl Scouts. The stable has since been turned into large com fortable quarters for the Scouts. Throughout the week the girls will wear their Scout uniforms in honor of the woman who founded their organization. Food Store Remains Open Wednesday Afternoons The food store now remains open on Wednesday afternoons, it was announced recently. This change became desirable because of the staggering of pay-days by the Government, which makes a pay-day each week. Hours of store employees are not increased because of reopening on Wednesdays, it was pointed out. Working hours have been ad justed to obviate the necessity of any employee doing extra work as a result of the change. While this change has been m effect for some time, some Green belters are not aware of it, it was stated by a spokesman for Green belt Consumer Services.
