There are listed: 142 Beet' Re- tailers, 53 Beer Wholesalers ;50 Cocktail Lounges, 27 Ta- verns, 552 Liquor Stores. This list does not include any of the hundreds of grocery stores, markets and supermar- solddB a otwuoty.lt- gC, kets, where beer and wine are sold. Nor does it include many of the hundreds of clubs and restaurants where alcoho- lic beverages are sold. There are around 1400 res- taurants listed in the "Yellow Pages" for the greater Wash- ington area. A fair esti/nate would be that at least 1000 of these phlces also serve alco- holic beverages. In adition there are an es- timated 22,000 cocktail parties in the l)istrict of Columbia each year. With all these places where alcoholic beverages are sold or served is it any wonder that so ~many A. A. and A1Anon groups are needed? This says noIlfing at all about those treal.cd in public and private alcoholic clinics, nor about the thousands of "hidden" alcoho- lics who are uuder some sort of medical or psychiatric care. The more one studies the ramifications of alcoholism, the more one realizes that it is indeed one of tile major health ~roblems of this generation. .... The American Issue. After being absent for some weeks, Ye Scribe is back on Mankato MS again, and glad to be. Saturday, my wonderful friend, Ada tiills, stayed with me while my son and daugh- ter, Bus and MaFy, were gone. We ate lunch together and she decided to take me out for dinner. We went to the Buffalo Roam Steak House and had the -fieasure of eating dinner with Art llenry, a CPA. and Blaine tlardman, his assistant. - Mr. and Mrs. Rex Ilcadrick and family of Jewell sat at the next table. Mr. and Mrs. Rod- hey McCamon and son, Paul, Miss Doris MeCammon were at another table. Mr. and Mrs. Raymond tioll had as their guests, Raymond's hrother and wife from Peoria, Ill. Marie Morris assisted her daugh- ter, Karen Ross. Katie Jacobs, in her usual efficient way wait- ed on us. Other good waitress-I es, Joyce Bradrick, Faye Ouel- lette and Opal Crouch, were busy.

Neighbors and friends visited me and brought "Get well" gifts. I had lovely flow- ers, canned fruit, preserves, doughnuts, candy, toilet arti- cles, cookies, dilly bread, etc. My son and daughter, Mcl)ill & Marie, came from Phillips burg to see me twice. Mcl)ill told me that all I needed was to get back to the Record of fice and go to work. So I am here at the Record ofice this Monday morning. But will con- fess that Mary will have to shoulder most of the work f(n' a while, I should have learned a long while ago that when a person finds that it takes longer to get rested than it took to get tired-they had bet- ter stop before they get too tired. I kept going after I became to() tired. There are always compensations. - In ad- dition to friends visiting me, and my son and daughter from Phillipsburg, my sister, Wini fred, came from Courtland five times to visit me. - And to top it off I had (and am hay ing) daily and nightly care of Bus and Mary--a choice of various, comfortable coucht, s and lounges to rest on-three meals from the best-cook-in town, Mary. - Might be a temp tation to prolong my rest cure. But I do miss my work, and ou will probably find me at the Record office, as usual.

Many drip-dries nec.d some touching tip, atld CCl'tain items still re- quire all over pressing. Here are helpful hints to improve anybody's "iron ability". It isn't worth tinm and ef- fo/'t to iron clothes that aren't clean. They won't look right, and presed-in soil and perspir- ation will be more difficult tO :remove in the next hmndering. So be sure to wash anything that is e\'en s/ightly soiled be- [ore ira,nine,: il. N('\cr iFoll L'lcilll ch)thcs with "t(,ols" that ~n'ell't clean. To remove starch and soil from an iron soleplate, wipe it with a cloth dipped in soap or deter- gent suds; then rinse and wipe dry. First unplug the iron and let it, cool. Wash ironing board covers often to remove starch, lint, and dye transferred frorn dark clothes. After laundering a fabric cover, replace it while damp so it will dry taut on the board. Wash new covers before use to remove the sizing which scorches at low heat. To keep a clean ironing board clean, cover it between uses with a fitted washable plastic cover, or with a paper dress bag. This is most impor- tant if the hoard is stored along with housecleaning equipment. There are three basic iron- ing methods: (a) with a regu- lar iron ~or damp fabrics: (b) with a steam iron for lightly wrinkled clothes, wools, and wool blends, and (c) with fin. gers to smooth washwear or drip dry garments. Fold clothes lightly instead of rolling them after sprink- ling. Fewer wrinkles will get into the damp fabric, and less ironing will be needed. Instead of the traditional towel, put sprinkled garments into a plastic sheet or bag, or a large covered container. The moisture will be distrihuted more evenly. Keep noncolor fast clothes separate while damp; plastic bags are convenient. To prevent laundry from mil dewing in hot weather, put the sprinkled and folded clothes in a plastic bag and place this in the refrigerator for several hours. Later, the heat of the iron on the chilled fabric will create light steam which will make pressing go faster If you can't press a heavy piece soon after washing, let it dry thoroughly. When ready to iron, sprinkle, fold it tight /y, cover with a c/can cloth, wrap it in paper and h'ave it briefly in a warm oven to dampen evenly by ew~pura- tion. Use time-saving short cuts when ironing lingerie, sleep wear, and other "inside" items; save your all out efforts for showier pieces. Always iron the small areas of a garment first, leaving lar- ger sections for last tu [)revent their creasing. For example, iron a dress in this ordez': placket facings, collar, sleeves, shoulder, bodice, and skirt. It is not necessary to contin- ue ironing a dampened gar- ment until it is bone dry es- 3ecially around zippers, plac- kets, and other multiple layers of fabric. After pressing, hang the garment carefully to air- dry before putting it away. It's easier to iron large piec- es if you reverse the board's position so that the iron can he placed on the narrow, pointed end at your right This leaves the board square and free for maximum working space. If you have no steam iron, use a well-dampened press cloth with a fairly hot iron to simulate steam Hold the iron just above the press cloth with- out letting it actually touch. This method will also coax up the pile on cotton velveteen and corduroy. A semi-transpar- ent press cloth will let you see what you are doing, Iron wools and dark cottons or, the wrong side to avoid a shiny finish. Pockets and oth- er thick areas may bc touched up on the right side under a )tess cloth. Sudsable silk should always )e ironed quite damp but ne- ver sprinkled, because silk waterspots. To da,npen silk, wet the entire piece and blot it in a towel -or just roll it in a damp towel for a few min- utes. Iron lace, embroidery, eye- let, pique and rough surface materials over turkish towel ~adding to bring out the decor- ation or texture in a 3.D effect. A handy substitute for a sleeve board is a rolled or fold.. ed towel. To "Iron" a puffed sleeve, remove the shade from a table lamp and turn on the light bulb.
