LOOKING FOR

Wheelchair: Judy is looking for a light-weight wheelchair that is easy to fold up and put into a car trunk. This type of wheelchair has small wheels rather than large ones, so it cannot be wheeled by the user.

Retro kitchen items: Marilyn of Nazareth is looking for two types of ''retro'' items to complete her collection. The first are anodized, colored aluminum tumblers about 5 inches tall, and the second are dinner plates and salt and pepper set made of Melmac/melamine in a color called salmon, coral or orange.

Multi-purpose appliance: Betty of Allentown is looking for a Sears Hostess Center (model number 400.8260). This is an all-purpose appliance, which she bought at Sears 30 years ago, opens cans, sharpens knives, makes salads and crushes ice and has attachments that grind meat and stuff sausage. Betty needs only the base unit — no attachments necessary. She and her husband love this appliance so much that when they travel to Florida for extended periods of time, the take the unit with them. They'd like to have one for each residence.

Full-size playpen: Carole of Easton has been looking everywhere, including at resale stores, for a full-size playpen. She wants the older type, not a pack and play.

Doll repairs: Betty of Pennsburg is hoping someone can help her find a doll hospital or someone who repairs damaged dolls in the Allentown, Emmaus, Quakertown or Pottstown area.

Ground pecans: Helen of Wescosville is looking for ground pecan meal, which she mixes with melted butter to make a crust for cheesecake.

Cooling mug: Several years ago, Herbe of Bethlehem bought a large tumbler that could be cooled in the freezer and would keep a beverage cool for hours. This tumbler was labeled Mr. Cool on its rubber muffler and it had no mug-like type handle Now, he cannot find another anywhere. He hopes Scouts will help him find one.
