Ann Landers Afraid His Girl Can't Born to: Take Care of Henelf BEAR ANN: I'm a fellow 20 with a heart as heavy as lead. I made a big mistake with my girl but why must she make me pay this awful price? We had 23 dates. 1 was the Saturday night boy friend. 1 took her to all the good movios and nice places after* w a r 8 s. One night I lost my Ann Landers. head and made what you might call nn improper suggestion. She told me off and made me feel like a worm. When we got to her house she shut the door in my face and asked me not to call her for a month. She said by that time she'd decide whether or not she'd go out with me again. Three weeks have passed and I'm miserable. I love her more than ever. I'm sure she's been going out with lots of new guys and I'm worried sick. One is 24 years old and I'm afraid she won't be able 1o handle him. She's very beautiful and some of these creeps might get ideas. Please. Ann, te there anything I can do to protect this girl? HERMAN DEAR HERMAN: This girl sounds about as helpless as General Motors. If I were you, I wouldn't worry about her. She kept you in line for 23 dates then clobbered you when you "lost your head", didn't she? I suspect that any bright ideas that may come up will be met by a brighter one from her. Consider yourself lucky she asked you to call "in a month". This means you'll-play second fiddle for a while but at least you haven't been thrown out of the orchestra. DEAR ANN: I'm a young wid- dow 23 years of age. My husband died four months ago. I have three children, a boy 4, a girl, 2, and a baby 11 months old. I don't feel like keeping company with men. It seems like an insult to my husband's memory. Yet my friends tell me that I should start to go out so I can meet someone and get married again. They say I won't always be young and good looking and I suppose they're right. My mother says my children need me and I'll have a full life if I devote myself to them and forget about men. My husband's death was sudden and a terrible shock. Maybe this is why I can't think straight. Can you help me? YOUNG WIDOW The shock of being widowed at 23 is enough to .knock anyone's mental and emotional machinery out of commission. Give yourself time to recover. But don't wear widow's weeds forever. Suppose you devote your life to rearing your children—then what? In 15 years you'll still be under 40. Your children won't need you any longer and you'll be alone. Your friends are right. If you could meet a good man it would be a healthier situation for your children as well as for you. Don't rush, but a woman 23 should think in terms of building a new life. Life is for the living. DEAR ANN: I've been married 12 years and John is a wonderful man in- many ways, but he does have a short temper. He blows up often, but he's always sorry in 10 minutes and then he's sweet as pie. I understand him so I let him blow off steam and his acting up hasn't hurt our marriage, The real problem is my next- door neighbor. She's been in our house a few times when John has lost his temper. The last time, she got right into the argument (on my side) and I could have wrung her neck. I really don't need any help from her, and I said so. Now she's mad at me nnd claims I don't deserve her friendship. She feels I should apologize. What is your opinion? NORTH SIDE NELL Don't apologize! If you're lucky Mrs. Buttinsky may stay out of your house for good. Real friends don't hang around and witness family fights, much less get into them. Your neighbor should have left at the first sign of a rumble. If you've learned how to tolerate and cope with John's snail we say "personality defect," more power to you. * » * » Are you tempted to smoke 'because the crowd does?

M. - Alien, IU. - vSTI-Mil Basic Wardrobe Doem't Have To Be Drab Just because "basic wardrobes" are economical >iid practical doesn't mean that they have to be drab and uninteresting. In fact, here are some tips from a University of Illinois textiles and clothing specialist that can aim a basic wardrobe for the fashion spotlight. Marjorie Mead says to choose your basic garment—suit, dress or suit-dress—to express your personality and complement your figure proportions. It should be flexible enough to use for different occasions merely by changing accessories to dress it up or down. If the basic garment is to he a suit, look for these features: The fabric should be as good a quality as you can afford, it. should be plain rather than figured and it should be a weight that you can wear year round or for a full season. The suit should be a conventional style that will outlive current fads. It should be designed with little detail at the neck, to be worn with or without a collar. There should be no contrasting fabric or trim, and the buttons should be self-covered. *A basic dress should have the same general features as a basic suit, but may be somewhat more extreme in fashion. A simple neckline offers possibilities for using scarves, collars, jewelry or flowers for variety. A basic dress with jacket may double for a tailored daytime dress and a semi-formal evening dress when worn without the jacket. Along with selecting the garment comes selecting a basic dolor. One or two main colors suited to you will help you coordinate your garments. Usually neutral colors—black, brown, navy, gray and beige- are good basic colors. You will want to select your basic garments, such as your coat, suit, one dress and a set of accessories, in your basic color. Red and green are both good choices for a second color to give variety and to help coordinate a wardrobe. Either could be used with any neutral basic color if you select the right tint or shade. Your second color may be used in such items as a 1 blouse, scarf, gloves, hat or perhaps a dress. Use These Three Tests When Making Jams and Jellies Sometimes only a tine line separates making jams and jellies too stiff or too runny. But there are some tests, and University of Illinois foods specialist Geraldine Acker recommends these three. You can take the temperature of the boiling water. Cook the jelly until it's 80 degrees F,, higher than the boiling point of water. (Thermometers can vary. So check yours to see at what temperature water boils; it may be above or below 212 degrees F. Then add 8 degrees to the temperature at which the water boils to obtain the correct temperature for boiling the jam or jelly.) To make the spoon or sheet test, begin with a cool metal spoon. Dip it into the mixture and raise it one foot from ihe kettle. Turn the spoon so ielly runs off the side. The mixture should run off the spoon as a sheet. , Or you can make the refrigerator test. Put a small amount of jelly on a cold plate and put it in the refrigerator. The mixture should jell in a few minutes. Remove jelly pan from heat while making this test. If you don't do this you may .overcook the jelly. Jacobs Reunion The Grant Jacobs family reunion was held Sunday afternoon at Rock Spring Park on the 71st birthday of Mrs. Jacobs. Sixty-eight persons were present for the reunion and basket supper.

She is as neat and well groomed and attractively dressed as style-conscious women in any age group. She isn't the least bit set in her ways. When she hears of something new her first inclination is to want to try it. She loves her home, but not as a place where she can sit and recall the past. Her home is still a p}ace where she entertains her friends, keeps busy, and gets out of every day. She lives alone, but instead of treating that fact like a depressing situation, she makes the most of being ,able to do as she pleases. She has friends her own age, but many who are much younger,'and children still delight her with their funny remarks and cute ways. Young parents in the neighborhood appreciate that quality in her as much as do their young. For a cranky older person in a neighborhood,, the kind who has a fit if a ball goes in her yard or children cut across her lawn, can make things mighty unpleasant for parents. She reads her daily newspaper to keep up with what is going on in the world. She doesn't even skip the sports section, because she is an ardent base* ball and football fan. There would be no point in writing about her if she were "one in a million" among the women her age. But she isn't. There are a great many women in their 70s and 80s today who are just as up-and-coming, as independent and entertaining as she is. She is remarkable, not because she is one. but because she is one of many. Newlyiveds HONEYMOONING IN THE OZARKS are Mr. and Mrs. Donald R. Brooks who were married Saturday morning in a ceremony in the First Church of Christ, Christian in Wood River. The bride is the former Miss Lila Lorraine Ballard, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy E. Ballard Sr. of Meadowbrook. After returning from their honeymoon, the couple will reside on State street in East Alton. — Schreier's Photo. Men are Men, and Women Will Always Wonder Why By RUTH M1LLETT Don't worry, brides. There are some things about that man of yours you'll NEVER understand. For instance: How he can become so attached to old clothes? You don't have to understand. Just don't get rid of an old hat, dressing gown or jacket without his permission. How he can hear a juicy bit of scandal and not tell you about JtT Maybe it didn't sound so juicy to him. Anyway, just don't show your frustration when, after you've heard it from someone else and tell it to him breathlessly, he says, with annoying nonchalance, "Yeah, I heard that several weeks ago." How he can appear to be listening to you and not hear a word you say? ' Well, that's frustrating—but not tragic. How he can dump all his worries when he sets out to do something he enjoys—such as fishing, watching a ball game or whatever? Because women tend to take their worries with them wherever they go. A man's ability to shelve his troubles temporarily may be hard for a woman to understand. But it's one of the things that helps a man face his problems the next day. How he can forget dates that are important to you? The fact that a man may forget his wedding anniversary doesn't mean he doesn't love his wife. It's much more likely just an indication that he has a poor memory, had a lot on his mind or wasn't brought up to pay attention to special days. How can he fail to see that there's nothing inconsistent about a woman having a closet full of clothes and still not have "a thing to wear"? How he can lose to many, things around home and insist that someone has hidden them from him, when often what he is looking for is in plain sight in its accustomed place? Easy. He's a man. The Mature Parent Special Favors to Child In Distress, Not Favoritism Lodges Carlin Rebekah Lodge 248 will meet Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock in Greenwood Hall, SILVER DOLLAR CLEANING SPECIAL JULY !2th to JULY life Wf IAIT IIOADWAY By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE After breakfast Lee's friend Connie telephoned to say that her Grandma had died .She said, "Daddy's driving us all over to Grandpa's house so you can't come over to play this afternoon." Lee was upset by this news. Connie's Grandma had taught her and Lee how to knit. She'd bought them needles and wool. During the lessons Lee had grown fond of her. She was quite shaken by the discovery that • person she liked could die. At lunch her father noted her abstraction. He said, "Lee, I'm driving over to the tree nursey this afternoon. How about coming along with me?" Before she could answer, her little sister cried, "Can I come, too, Daddy?" Then, adding his demand, her older brother said, "Sure, we can all go, can't we, Daddy?" Their father said, "No, you can't. Lee is feeling sad today. You aren't. So this treat is for her alone." Though his other children grumbled, there was no heat in their protests. Both understood their sister's need of special privilege, and accepted the justice of their father's denial of it to then). Some of us are scared to move on « child's special need of special treatment lest his brothers and sisters accuse us of "f*v* oritism," This fear is Inconsistent and unjust. If Lee is recovering from tha flu, we do not serve her the lunch of soup and peanut butter sandwiches that we serve her healthy brother and sister. Without hesitation, we accept tha < difference between her physical weakness and their unimpaired strength. We serve her lamb chop and baked potato. What's more, we deal unhesitatingly with any opjections to this special treatment. Cooking Cues Anchovies, added to potato salad, help to give it piquant flavor. orr YOUR COLOR FILM PROCESSED AT Edward Ott JEWELERS StrttfwiJHtttllUf. Alton A»«ou f «? th* flam CMtf.
