PAGE SIX ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JULY 8,1958 The Women Social Events — Group Activities MISS CRIVELLO biSPLAYING THE PRODUCTS of their imagination and training are these three members of the "Original Mad Hatters" Club.

'Original Mad Hatters 9 Are Just Tkab-Reporter Finds By CARROL HINKLJG Th« "Original Mad Hatters" is a perfect name for tjie Alton millinery group that meets once a month at Hillcrest House to channel their creative ingenuity into making practical and professional looking hats. The club is composed of 40 members who ar» definitely "original" and even more definitely "mad" about hats. ; The group is an outgrowth of millinery classes taught at Young Women's Christian Association for the past several years. The classes are taught twice a year for a six week period' by Mrs. Antone (Marge) Golick, nationally known fashion designer and buyer. Before becoming eligible for membership in the Mad Hatters, one must be a member of the YWCA and must have been instructed in one class. From .the classes, women may join the club which continues to have a work period and a lesson each month. The purpose of the organization is to keep together women interested in designing by allowing them the opportunity to use their creative ability. One of the interesting facts of the club, pointed out in an interview with three members, is that although each' person is taught the same basic fundamentals, no two hats have ever been made alike. At club meetings, members all give assistance to each other whenever difficulty is had with the completion of a hat. It was particularly stressed that a woman need not know how to •ew or be extremely artistic in order to make a hat. After basic •training, ideas for new and different hats come easily, and although mistakes are often made, they can be turned into a beneficial advantage by lending a flare of originality to the chapeaus. Ha* Advantage* One member stated that making hats certainly has its advantages. During an awkward moment when she realized that she didn't have a hat to match a dress she was planning to wear, all she had to do was gather some material together, mix it with her imagination, and by the time of her engagement she was able to don a chic looking headpiece. Most of the hats are made in an hour's time, and members usually have wide assortments available. In fact, one member has made approximately 500. The principal materials used in creating the bonnets consist of net, satin, feathers, flowers, straw, and even drapery material. The hats vary according to individual profiles and hair styles, and members have learned to make a hat fit the face. Besides making their own hats, the women have also become more adept in purchasing them, and they stress the fact that even the most inexpensive dress can be complimented by a hat. The members demonstrate their creations at various clubs to encouraae the wearing of hats. At their own meetines if a member IK without one she is automatically fined. Perhaps the only thing the olub hai produced more of than hats Is enthusiasm. This is quiif evident - and contagious. Proof of the statement came when one of the members declared, "Now even our husbands have become rones Betrothal Told Announced today by Mr. and Mrs. William Crivello of 422 Foulds Ave., is the engagement of their daughter, Donna, to Gary Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Jones of 166 Acton St., Wood River.

Mind Your Manners If you love to "visit" on the telephone, talking for half an hour or more at a time, just be sure that those you call for such visits have that much time to spare. How can you tell? Well, if you are the one who always makes the call, chances are the other person isn't as eager to visit by telephone as you are. When a friend is under attack never be afraid to say staunchly, "I think I should tell you that he is a friend of mine." That it the quickest way to stop a detractor. And it certainly isn't too much for anyone to do for a-friend—to acknowledge the friendship when it counts.

Teenagers Must Aim for Future Beauty Now By ALICIA HART NBA Beauty Editor The teen-ager who wants to be a beauty in her twenties has to start working at it right now. For it takes time to blossom out with a trim figure, clear skin and shining hair. And this enviable trio won't come from too many sundaes, no exercise and much sitting under a hot dryer. They will come from walking, swimming and playing tennis; from a daily workout with a stiff hairbrush and from the right foods and lots of rest. The business of burning the candle at both ends may sound terribly dashing, but in actuality it's unwise and people who've done it would be the first to tell you so. It usually results in bad skin, dry hair, a lumpish figure and a generally sagging look. In your teen* you have the best opportunity to learn to discipline yourself, a thing you will need to know all ol your life, Parent Can't Expect Child To Quickly Forgive Wrong Married in Michigan MRS. LUCAS EDWARD PFEIFFENBERGER, the former Sylvia Janet Grant, whose marriage took place Sunday afternoon in First Congregational Church of Alpena, Mich. Ann Landers After 16 Years of Marriage She Falls for Hired Man DEAR ANN: After 16 years of happy married life and three wonderful children, my wife has gone balmy over the hired man. If you think this is a joke, Jet me assure you I am not laughing. The poor sap is 20 years younger than she is, and he's not chasing HER — she's chasing HIM. He's scared to death of me— thinks I might kill him. She has announced if I fire him she will leave, too. I Ann Landers, don't want a scandal so I'm doing my best to hold things together. I made the mistake of trying to bribe her with a new car a few months ago. She accepted it and now she takes him for rides. I've always been a good husband and have never denied her a thing in all our years of marriage. We have one purse. She's a wonderful home-maker and mother and this thing has driven me nearly crazy. She'll be 48 next month. What shall I do? J.H.W. Your wife's age is the due to her strange behavior. Urge her to see a doctor. Sometimes when women reach this stage of life they fear their romantic days are coming to an end and in a frantic effort to prove they are still desirable, they promote an outside affair. The doctor can recommend medication to help reduce her anxiety. Let her know that her scandalous behavior, even though a symptom of her sickness, is nonetheless intolerable and for the sake of the family relationship, she must fire the hired man immediately or you'll be forced to do so—even if it means her departure. * * * * DEAR ANN: I have a boy friend with whom I am going steadily, but not steady. He is 18, 1 am 16. We've had a set date for Friday nights for the last three months. Thursday he phoned to say he couldn't make the Friday date because he had to baby-sit for his married sister. He apologized for the short notice but said it was an "emergency". I decided to go to the movies ' with some girls on Friday and who do you think we saw riding around? MY boy friend and a girl from another school. To make matters worse, HE was driving HER convertible. I was so embarrassed I nearly choked When he saw me he almost hit' a pedestrian. This morning he called at 7:30 A.M. to apologize. He claims the sitter turned up at the last minute and he phoned this girl because he knew she'd be available on short notice. How shall I treat him from now on? JANICE Casually. Announce you're no longer reserving Friday nights for him and he'll have to phone in advance if he wants a date. When he finds you aren't available at the wink of an eye, he'ii put a higher premium on your company. * * * * DEAR ANN: My husband and I have been married three months. This is my third and his second marriage. I've tried to get him to tell me about his past life but he clams up and refuses to speak of it. I've told him everything about myself— holding back nothing. Sometimes I wonder if he's hiding something I ought to know, like maybe a police record. Shall I get tough and insist that he open up? It could be that there's nothing much to tell, but his secrecy makes me suspi- cfious. My mother says to leave well enough alone. What do you say? JENNIE. I say your mother has given you good advice. You loved and trusted this man enough to marry him. Now is no time to go in for a home-style Spanish Inquisition. Perhaps If you quit pumping the guy he'd open up. Constant hammering away will only make him more reluctant to talk and put you in the nag class.

So when they went to bed at night, they firmly closed all the windows and developed interesting pale gray complexions. Take a tip from this and always have your windows open at night the year around. Cool air is better for you than hot, so use an electric window fan or air conditioner in your bedroom during the summer it' you live in the city. The cleaner and cooler the all, the better for health and beautv. toe yours a yuu IMW» BEAUTY CULTURE Oityr • few RientlM *t ft«tfr FOUR STATE ACCRtoinTriEACHERS 6IMM* ttaniai By Mtfttfct LAWRENCB If you're a decent person, one day — unavoidably — you'll realize you've wronged your child. Perhaps you've punished him for telling you he didn't overflow the Bathroom bason and then discovered he told you the truth. Perhaps he's disobeyed your command to return his youngster sister's comic book- and in your «hger struck him harder than vou meant. Your punished child retreats to his room—and you begin to feel uncomfortable. The sense of discomfort grows. To relieve it, you go upstairs to his room. You say, "Mommy was unfair to you. Will you kiss me and tell me you forgive me?" But when you sit down on the bed beside your wronged child, he pulls away from you. It t» clear that he doesn't want to kiss and forgive vou 1 hope you don't insist that he does. Some parents do. Usually they are people who are always boasting of themselves. "There's one good thing about me. I can get mad awfully fast, but I'm always over it just as fast." So after they have Indulged their quick angers, they demand children's quick indulgence ot their remorse, And by their coaxing insistence on forgiveness, they seek to stifle the children's resentment at abuse. If we sincerely wish to repalf an injustice we have done a child, the way to do it' is to encourage his protest against it. When we seek to evade his protest "by premature demands for reconciliation, our remorse is false. Our wheedling pleas for his good will is domination —our effort to despoil the child of his resentment and replace it with affectionate feelings that will make us feel good. It is dangerously confusing to a child to be required to get cozy with a person whom he's not ready to forgive. So if our remorse is genuine, we don't ask him for kisses and cuddles. Instead we encourage him to protest the injustices our remorse has already protested. We say, "I'm sorry that I wan unfair to you. I know how angry you must be with me. I want you to know that I think you have a right to be." Forgiving us is the child's affair. If Plants Thrive Transplanting, So Can Humans By RUTH MILLETT "I don't know anyone in this town and nobody seems very interested in knowing me," writes a young wife. After living all of her life in one place, her husband's company offered him a better job at the price of a move to a distant community. The husband is getting along fine in his new job—but "his wife is miserable because she feels like an outsider. In fact, sh« is so miserable she is thinking of asking her husband to go back to her home town and look for a job with some other company. Don't -do it, lady. Are you a gardener? If you are, you have probably had this experience. You've seen beautiful flowering shrubs all over town and, wanting one of your own, you have gone to a nursery and bought one in a pot and planted it in the spot you chose for it. < What happened? Did you right away have a plant as large, as healthy, as full of blossoms as shrubs of the same kind blooming their heads off all over town? Of course not. The first year the plant struggled to get a start. The heat made its leave droop. Insects chewed on it. All in all it was a pretty bedraggled little bush. But when a second spring rolled around you saw that something had happened. Your shrub suddenly didn't look like a weak, transplanted little thing, but like a bush that had sprung from the soil and belonged exactly where it was. While you were worrying about it it had been putting down roots. That is all you have to do- ignore your loneliness and your feeling of not belonging and start putting down roots. And then, almost as quickly as the transplanted shrub, you will begin to be at home to feel that you belong where you are, not where you came from.
