Device Puts Baby in Cockpit

Michele Forer of West Los Angeles is looking for a 3-dimensional cloth airplane with a steering wheel that fits on a baby stroller ; it was made by the Panosh Group and called "Learning Curves." Can you help give wings to Forer's hopes, or will she be faced with a bum steer that will never fly?

Dorothy Johnson of Los Angeles can no longer find her favorite face cream, Bonnie Bell No. 30 . Can you help save face for Johnson, or does it look, at first blush, as if it's really the end for her?

Reader-to-Reader Help Line: R. A. Thomas at (213) 463-7412 is in a hurry for a Ted Weems recording of "Cecilia," made in the late '40s with Snooky Lanson vocals ; Thomas' brother, who played sax on the record, is now very ill and wants to hear the piece again. Please see to it that this is music to Thomas' ears. . . . Marcy at (213) 650-5434 would like to find the needlepoint design of a Stuart Moskowitz "Uncle Sam" rabbit , which was made by Paragon until a few years ago. (She's also interested in other "Uncle Sam" cross-stitch and folk-art patterns, especially antique ones.) Quick like a rabbit, make sure that Marcy starts hollering "Uncle" soon. . . . Judith at (213) 539-3129 is in the market for a discontinued Rubbermaid laundry basket that measured 16 1/2x23 inches and had a heavy metal rod around the perimeter; please do something before Judith feels either all washed up or else becomes a basket case.
