6—A: THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS THURSDAY, JANUARY 9. 1969 CENTRALIA EDITOR'S BIOGRAPHER BETTY KING FRAZER If a nation's history is but a collection of stories of the men who left their indelible mark upon it, all woven into one larger fabric, then such a fragment is "Verne E. Joy, Publisher, 'Egypt's Greatest Dailyy'." The new 166-page biography is a chronicle of the career of the man who for more than half a century shaped the destinies of the Centralia Evening Sentinel. Its author is Betty King Frazer of the department of journalism, Southern Illinois University. The book traces the development of Joy's philosophy of newspapering which already had taken definite shape while ho was still a young (early twenties) American Consular agent in Solingen, Germany, be- for the turn of the century. Even then, Mrs. Frazer points out, Joy had very definite opinions how a newspaper should be run, and he made his ideas known in affectionate letters to his father, whom he was itching to succeed as editor. Much later, Joy did take over the editorship, and the book is an account of his personal management of the family-owned paper almost up to the time ox his death in 1964 at the age ol 87. As the author points out, Joy "said he would never re­ tire, and he never did." Although severely limited in activity by two strokes, ho remained the "boss" until a broK- en hip in March, 1963, ended his active days. Mrs. Frazer, with her husband Clarence A. Frazer, was closely associated with Joy at the Evening Sentinel from 1947 to 1962. Both veterans in the newspaper field, they are now on the stofi at Southern Illinois University. The Frazers' eldest son, Dave, is city editor of the Metro-East Journal in East St. Louis; son Bob is copy editor for the Nashville (Tenn.) Banner; and daughter Mary is a journalism major at Southern Illinois University. Another daughter, Nancy (Mrs. Bert Shadowen of Richmond, Va.) is the only Frazer without printer's ink ii: the blood. She is a department store buyer. "Verne E. Joy, Publisher, 'Egypt's Greatest Daily'" is published by the Evening Sentinel, Broadway and Poplar Sis., Centralia, 111.

CREAMED COLOGNE IASTS If you find that the scent of the cologne you use vanishes too quickly, try the same fragrance in a solid or cream version. The alcohol that is contained in most perfumes tends to evaporate and with it the fragrance while the consistency of a cream retains it much longer. JANUARY ALL FALL AND WINTER Further Reduced To.

The two- piece sleeve is most often used in coats and Jackets. The underarm panel shapes the sleeve and provides elbow fullness inconspicuously. Pair Them Make sure that when you eut your sleeves, you have one left and one right. This is best done by cutting sleeves from fabric folded so it faces itself. If you follow your cutting directions in your pat tern, your sleeves will be correct To make sure you sew a pair of sleeves (and not two left sleeves or two right sleeves) join sleeves with right sides of fabric facing, "When both sides of the fabric look alike, make sure you mark the right side of the fabric with a pin or chalk, Pin both Bleeves at the same time so you can check to be sure you have a pair before you go further. When sleeves are cut out, pin-baste them with the points of the pins facing upward. Bodices should be pinned the same way. For accuracy, slip the sleeve over the arm and see that it fits the armhole. Then place the pins at right angles to the outside edge of the fabric. Set-in Sleeve A sleeve that is smoothly set into a garment is the sign of a good dressmaker or tailor. By following a few simple steps you can become master of the set-in sleeve. First, run a row of basting stitches around the top of the sleeve from notch to notch. Gather fullness evenly around the cap of the sleeve. Place the top of the sleeve over the small end of your sleeve-board and steam-shrink out the gathers until the upper half of the sleeve curves gracefully. At the beginning, just steam the fullness without pressure until it begins to shrink into a curve. The purpose is to have no gathers and just a smooth curved cap to the sleeve. This is the most im* portant step in the whole oper. atlon, so be patient with it There's a complete chapter on Sleeves in your new IN* STANT SEWING Book, show- irig eleven different types.
