try woman to woman?'

July 25. But already she has run
into, the first Soviet "nyet."

Dear P. H.: When a wedding
is called off the gifts should
be returned. It's a whale of a
job, but it's the only thing to
do. I don't know how money
showers work, but if the bride-to-be
received the money in se
parate envelopes, with the
name of the giver, then she
should return the money, pro

And (he most popular table of all
is the one w-here homemade straw
berry shortcake and fragrant bot

One of the very best shortcake
recipes to come along is easily
adapted to the community festival
or the Sunday dinner at home.
The light-textured biscuits are
quickly made from a biscuit mix
and filled with sweetened straw
berries while they're still hot

Dear M.T.D.: The best way
to have a good neighbor Is to be
one. Start off by being pleas
ant. Don't criticize, scold, be
rate or even offer a suggestion
until you get to know the peo

slobs) respond well to gentle
ness. Ifs usually ignorance,
not cussedness, that makes peo
ple poor neighbors. If you win
their confidence and friendship
you can go on from there and
show them how to enhance
their property (and yours) by
taking care of it.
