THE TERRE HAUTE STAR. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 1966. 7 to the ladies . Enjoy the full panorama of spring indoors, in your home or apartment, from arrangements of cut branches of forsythia, cherry blossoms, quince, spirea and dogwood. Over a period of several weeks these cut branches will come into full bloom, then shed their flowers and develop shiny new green leaves, completing the panorama of spring. The branches will last longer if they are cut, or purchased from florists, when the first flower bud begins to open and if their stems and the container in which they are to be placed are kept clean, says the Society of American Florists. The woody stem ends should be split or crushed to permit their absorption of water. Both the stems and the container in which they are to be arranged should be cleaned with soap and hot water. Warm water should be poured into the container and all foliage removed be- < low the water level. ! To stop bacteria from grow- i ing. causing objectionable I odors and drastically reducing the life of cut branches, repeat the hot water and soap treatment of both the stems and the container about every third day, with a change of water. * * * It's going to be the youngest Easter ever. The fashion people are unanimous in their accent on youth. Words like "Mary Jane," "little girl" and "peekaboo" describe the Easter costume from boots and slippers to dresses and blouses. The hemline's escalation has given rise to the "leggy look." The artful cutouts in dresses are "see throughs." Some call them "you throughs." It all adds up today's young outlook. It doesn't matter how old you are, if you think young and have a figure to match, these spring fashions are for you. Be sure you're ready for them. Your new dress may look like the one on the magazine cover. But are you as carefully groomed as the model on the cover? Is your dress lint- free and freshly pressed? Dr. Joyce Brothers Worried Mother Feels Baby Cries Too Much Dear Dr. Brothers—What is it that makes one child a good baby and another one cranky or the high order of the crime Let's discuss the guilt of the "criminals" involved.

Mothers of cry babies simply resigned themselves to the fact that their little ones had less tolerance for discomfort. Research on readiness to cry by Dr. Samuel Karelitz, a pedia- wife agrees not to use them to decorate your home, the two of you might succeed in adding another four weeks, two days and eleven hours to your marriage. No one is completely honest at all times, but are you honest trician at Long IslandJewish ; with voursel ' f? For a sc if- re veal- Hospital, shows that a baby's crying my serve as a direct index of his intelligence. By snapping a rubber band on the bottom of a baby's foot, Dr. Karelitz found that he could stimulate a crying response in any infant, but while the normal baby will respond the first time time with a full minute of wailing protest, a brain-damaged child will require three or more attempts before crying out. Charts of the crying patterns of two-day-old babies show that their cries were different in volume and rhythmic pattern from those of children with mental defects. Normal babies also cried much more easily than mentally «Iow ones. GETS THE MESSAGE Having made thousands of recordings of babies' crying, during the course of his study, Dr. Karelitz claims to distinguish easily between cries for hunger, for tiredness, or -discomfort, and for delight. Not only do cries differ in the moods they communicate but, according to Dr. Karelitz, they represent various stages of vocal-verbal development. "The brighter infant was found to pass through the stages of crying, gibberish and speech more quickly than one that ultimately measures a lower IQ," he reported. It is hoped that ultimately these investigations will help in the screening of babies for adoption. Meanwhile, the group is considering the use of their recordings to teach parents what noises a normal infant should make. Such a recording may do more good than a symphony to mend frayed nerves for the parents of cry babies. So, mother, if your baby cries easily, it may just be a sign of his superior intelligence.

Blend makeup at the throat, being careful not to soil the collar. Remove the excess in this, area with a cotton ball, dampened in good quality witch hazel. Blend makeup into the hair line at tie temples with the same cotton ball. This avoids "high water" marks. The woman who knows she is impeccably groomed wears her clothes with confidence and a certain flair. She is the type you find leading the Easter parade. * * * One thing about the new fashion in trousers — whether for sports, patio or dinner, there's little of this business of having to take off your shoes to get inside them! According to Kittie Campbell, director of the New York Couture Business Council, Inc., the bells are ringing — for every gal — and that means bell-bottomed trousers are ringing up cash registers from coast to coast. Wide- swingy culottes for dinner look great, especially in delightful combinations of print and splashy colors as in one collection. Another house has some wonderful sailing pants with bell-bottoms — real sailor style. When worn with pea jacket tops, you don't even need paper? to be first mate! * * * Women's legs will be the featured feminine attraction this season, when thiih-hi?h skirts may be sky-high fashion, according to the nation's leading dress designers. With women's hosiery having to be more attractive than ever, manufacturers are anticipating demand for alluring stockings with new styles, various color hues and technical improvements. Women whose legs tire easily, or whose professional occupations require extensive walking or hours of standing, are not being forgotten by those who cater to the fashion-minded. One company has introduced a new sheer high- fashion support hose for those who want luxury style and comfort while preventing leg fatigue. This hosiery is ingeniously designed and made to give medically-correct support, yet is elegantly filmy and flattering. It comes in fashionable shades, too. Secret of the new support stockings is a patented interlocking weave of 20 denier nylon with nylon-covered spandex. Cities spend 25 to 50 per cent of their street maintenance budgets to remove snow and ice from their streets. HERRINGTONWILL HEAD GROUP FOR DEVELOPMENT Members of the industrial liason committee of the Midwest Development Foundation selected Richard Harrington, president of Local Readers Service, as chairman at a recent meeting.

JVCSC to Observe Teaching Careers Vigo County School Corporation will observe Teaching Career Month during April, it was announced Tuesday by Max Gabbert, superintendent of schools. Theme for the month, sponsored by the National Education Association to focus attention on the need for getting and keeping good teachers on all levels of education, is "Teachers: Partners in Progress." Two areas are to be emphasized, he said, partnership with other members of the profession and partnership with students, parents and the rest of the community. The horse was man's fastest means of transportation until the invention of the locomotive. When Napoleon was in a hurry to get to a battlefield, the fastest mode of travel was still on horseback. Tax Offices Open INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Commissioner William L. Fortune says the Indiana Revenue Department's 17 field offices will be open on Saturday this week and until 8 p.m. April 11 through April 15 to assist taxpayers. The offices will be closed April 8-9 for observance of Easter. Flees Work Detail PENDLETON, Ind.
