Friday Evening, May II, 1962. JOSEPHINE LOWMAN It's Simple to Reduce the Knees-Just Spank Yourself She's exercising the knees by pulling the leg back—trying to spank herself with her feet. (The Question Box) Q. "I have large knee bones and fat on them. Can you give me an exercise to reduce them?" • A. We cannot reduce the bones, but-the following exercise will be helpful in reducing the fat. Lie on your stomach and lean on your elbows. Bend the left knee, pulling the left Jeg back as far as comfortable. Return left leg to floor. Bend the right knee, pulling the leg back. Return Jeg to floor. Continue, 'alternating left and right, trying to spank yourself with your feet. Q. "I am writing in behalf of six girls. Can you please give us an exercise to correct sag or jowls at the jawline? Can we correct this?" A. Since you are troubled with jowls, I judge you are not teenage girls. Overweight and de- cre'ased resiliency of the skin can be factors. However, muscle sag may also play a part. The following exercise is indicated. Lift the left corner of the mouth (using the muscles only) up toward the left ear. Hold a few moments. Relax. Lift the right corner of the mouth. Hold. Relax. Continue, alternating left and right. Do this exercise very slowly. Q. "Is Electrolysis dangerous or painful? Can it do harm if used to remove hairs from the breast?" A. Electrolysis is not dangerous to health. It is not painful. You will experience the sensation of a very small pinprick. The important thing is to be sure that you have a well-trained and well- qualified operator. I have carefully investigated the question of removing hairs from the breast by talking with one of New York's distinguished dermatologists and also a famous breast cancer expert. Hairs can be removed safely. Q. "I am 13 years old. five feet 2'/2 inches tall. I weigh 115 pounds. I will be going to high school in the fall and would like to lose some weight in the waist and hips before then. My measurements are bust, 35 inches, waist 27 and hips 37. "My mother will not let me diet, so do you have any ideas? Please answer in your column." A. I agree with your mother. You are only a very little overweight, just on the plump side. I imagine she would agree to letting you eliminate candy bars and soda fountain goodies from your diet. If you will do without such in between-meal snacks and exercise more, that will be all you will need to do. Your measurements are in good ratio, but if you wish to bring them nearer to perfection, ta.ke waist and hip-slimming exercises. If you, or any of my readers, would like to have these exereises, send a stamped, self- addressed envelope with your request for letflets 'No. 6 (waist) and No. 3 (hips) to Josephine Lowmah in care of this newspa per. * + + Tomorrow: "Don't Overlook Vitamins In Daily Battle for Beauty-" (Released by The Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1962) ANN LANDERS If Mom Changes Mind About Dog, Ann Will Get a Puppy Dear Ann Landers: My name Is Billy. I will be 12 years old in August. All my life I have wanted a dog. My dad says it is up to my mother. My mother says no. I can pay for the dog myself because I have saved my Christmas and Easier money. I would be willing to pay for the dog's food out of my weekly allowance. We moved into this nice house last year. My mother says she isn't going to have a dog ruining her new rugs. I prom- sed I would clean up after the dog no mailer what he did. My mother says a rug is never the same after a dog has ruined it. I don't have any brothers or sisters and I think this is the least my mother can do for me. She says a dog is more work than a baby brother. -If you print my loiter and my mother changes her mind I will get a lady dog and give you one of'her first puppies. Thank you.—LONESOME Dear Lonesome: This decision is one which must be made by your family. But I would like to say a few words which may help. A pet can bring much joy, and it gives children a sense of re- sponsiblity and leaches them unselfishness. But please, Billy, if your mother changes her mind and says yes, don't send me a puppy. I have new rugs, loo. * # * Dear Ann Landers: Ths is a touchy subject and I need help. I've tried to talk this over with my husband, Harry, but every time I bring up the subject he tells me I'm imagining things. When we go out for dinner or for an after-the-movie snack with friends, Harry always manages to be away from the table vyhen the waiter brings the check. On the few occasions when he has not been able to leave, for the men's room fast enough, he fumbles around until someone else takes it. Nobody in the crowd is hurting financially, including my husband. In fact he's better off than some of the others. I'm afraid he's getting the well-deserved reputation ,of a cheapskate. What can ! do?—MRS. FREEBEE Dear Mrs.: Couples who go out together should take turns picking up the check. When it's your husband's turn and he docs his disappearing act, it's perfectly all right for YOU to take the check and say lo Hie others, "I know Harry wants Ihis one." Then hand it to Harry when he returns-to Ihe table. * * * Dear Ann Landers: Our daughter is 17, an excellent student, a fine musician and filature emotionally and physically. Lorraine has been daling since she was 15. She has always respected the curfew we agreed on and is well behaved. In 'fact I can truthfully say she has never caused .us a moment's concern unlil just a few months ago. Now Lorraine says high school boys are dull and uninteresting and she prefers lo date college -fellows. The young man she likes best is 20. He is a college junior. My husband feels that Lorraine should go only with boys from her school. He claims college fellows are loo fast and smooth for high school girls. I don't know if it would be fair lo impose such regulations on Lorraine since she has always shown such good judgment. What is your opinion? —UNDECIDED Dear Undecided: A bright, ma- lure 17-year-old girl is hot likely to be content with a fellow her own age, unless he, loo, is unusually bright and mature. Since Lorraine has demonstrated sound judgment in Ihe past I recommend that you permit her to dale college fellows if she wishes. To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with llie opposite sex, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "How To I!e Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them (o her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. 1962, Field Enterprises, Inc.

THANKS to Lionel Davis, Ralph Parmeter and Russell Barney for a clean, hard-fought campaign. > Robert Dewey Schmidt • YOUR CANDIDATE F6R SHERIFF Farm Plan Okayed WASHINGTON (UPI) - By a razor-thin margin of one vote, the House Agriculture Com m i 11 e e Thursday approved a compromise version of President Kennedy's plan to impose unprecedented controls on American farm production to curb surpluses. The 18 to 17 vote successfully capped months of efforts by White House aides and Democratic leaders to muster the votes needed to squeeze through the committee a catch-all farm bill containngi the new control program. The program's ultimate fate remained in doubt. All 14 Republicans and three of the 21 Democrats on the committee voted against it. The Democrats who votec against the bill, all Southerners, were Reps. Thomas G. Abernethy, Miss., Watkins M. Abbilt, Va., and George Grant, Ala. The bill for the first time woulc authorize for all major grains the kind of strict planting curbs thai hitherto have appUed only to wheat, cotton, peanuts, rice anc tobacco. It also would tighten existing controls over wheat production. In addition, the governmenl would be authorized to provide financial aid to help farmers convert surplus cropland into recreation areas. The idea is to help farmers supplement their income by charging fees for hunting, fishing, camping and golfing on their land. This is part of an adminis tration program .for shifting 51 million acres from crops to other uses over the next 20 years. Delated from the bill were the controls the administration wanted to curtail surplus dairy production. Instead, the committee approved a plan under which those dairy farmers who voluntarily cut production would get fedora! payments, in addition to the help all airy farmers receive through price supports. Agriculture department figures 'or the U.S. show a decline also. It estimated 891,498,000 bushels of wheat will be harvested this year. This compares with an April 1 estimate of 921,170,000 and 1961 )roduction figures of 1,078,274,000 jushels. The April forecast for the state las predicted a crop of 36,580,000 jushels 1 . The new forecast is more ban 12 million bushels less than the 45,150,000 bushels harvested n the state last year. The weekly crop report said slowing for corn and soybeans is about 75 per cent complete compared with 'the usual 65 per cent at this time of year. Field work was interrupted by rain recently but the rain replenished soil moisture and 90 to )5 per cent of the counties now :iave topsoil moisture reported adequate to surplus. The estimated U.S. winter wheat crop, added to a possible spring wheat crop of 195,060,000 bushels would mean a total wheat crop of 1,086,498,000 bushels for 1962. This compares with a total wheat production of 1,234,705,000 bushels in 1961. The estimated winter wheat production compares with the 10-year average production of 876,232,000 bushels. The department estimated the May 1 condition of the 19G2 rye crop, planted last fall, at 88 per cent of normal. Hay was estimated at 86 per cent of normal, and pasture at 83 per cent of normal. The Crop Reporting Board predicted 34,897,000 acres of winter wheat would be harvested this year, compared with 40,753,000 acres in 1961. It predicted 10.5 per cent of the acreage planted would not be harvested for grain, but used for livestock grazing or other purposes. Last year 6,1'per cent was not harvested for grain. The board predicted the yield per acre at 25.5 bushels. $n 1961, the average yield of winter wheat was 26.4 bushels an acre.
