Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Josephine Lowmon , These Tricks for Tall Girl Will De-Emphasize Height In the past the tall girl or woman often was self-conscious about her above average inches. Even today some women alloV their happiness to be affected by their height. This is. usually due to the fact that they feel that extra height limits "the number of dates they can have or the number of men who will be attracted to them. I suppose this is true to a certain extent since some men do like to tower over their dales or at least bp. the taller of the two. However, I have known many attractive men who do not feel this way at all. Then, too, with the average, height increasing you are pretty sure to find a tall guy you enjoy. However, there are all sorts of tricks the tall woman can use which will make her appear shorter than she is. For instance, the tall one should have color contrasts in her clothes. A solid color makes one look taller while a dark skirt and a light coat or vice versa, will x cut h_er height. This is also true of dresses which have contrasting colors, or buttons or designs which are horizontal. Can Be Smart Looking The tall woman can be extremely smart looking. She can wear high style clothes which her shorter sister cannot. Large pocket books, and bulky costume jewelry I look stunning. I As to heels she can do what she wishes. If she prefers to avoid spikes she can do so without giv-| ing up beautiful shoes. The lower,' gracefully shaped heel is extreme-! ly popular now even with women, of average height. There is no doubt about it, very high heels do add quite a few inches to your stature. Naturally you should not wear hats with high crowns or tall hats if you want-to look shorter. Small hats or those with very wide brims are your dish. Hairdos The same principle applies to hairdos. Do not pile your hair high on your head unless your facial contour requires that you do so. Often the tall woman has a long, slender face anyway. If this is not true of you then wear your hair in the most becoming way and forget your height. The -main advice about being above average in height is "Don't lot it affect your enjoyment in living" -AND, "Don't let it make you slump becsuse of ttie unconscious wish to look shorter.

Identify Body As Air Pilot CHICAGO (UP) — Relatives Monday identified a body found in Lake Michigan May 5 as that of a pilot whose plane plunged into the lake carrying four Hoosiers to their deaths.

Dear Ann: I've been reading your column a Ions time and you seem to have the answers to all types of problems, whether they're lovelorn or not. Maybe you can help me. My wife is 43. We have four children. For the past two years she's been feeling awfully blue. She was always tired, irritable and cried a' lot. I couldn't get her to go anyplace. She was a wonderful housekeper, in fact, almost crazy on the subject of orderliness. Three months ago she read in a magazine about the tranquilizer pills. She bcught some at a drug store. Now her personality is completely changed. She's easy-going and agreeable. She doesn't care it" the tfeds are made or not. Some nights there's no sign of dinner on the table. The ironing piles up and when I run out of underwear and shirts she says "Whal's Ihe difference?" Although she' claims she ' feele 'fine", there's 'an odd look around her eyes and she's gained 15 pounds. Is this change good or bad? I'm worried and want to know what you think.—H.J.T. Some 'people can get- too darned "tranquil" for their own good, and meant by this. Can you figure it out?—SAND-BAGG-ED Dear 'Sand-Bagged": Under the circumstances, I don't think this was much of a compliment to either one of us. .(P. S.' I have a 'feeling that you've got a problem.

It's New trial Ordered For Ousted Teacher 1'N'DIANAPOLIS (UP) — Indiana Supreme Court Tuesday ordered a new .trial for Mary Ethel Thurslon, a veteran of 25 years teaching at Anderson, who lost .her court fight against dismissal. The Anderson school board cancelled Miss Thurston's contract in 1953. Madison Superior Court up- leld the dismissal upon appeal. But the high court ordered a new trial on grounds the cancellation took place five minutes after the teacher left a school board hearing on the matter. far better lo face life's problems and get whatever help is needed to work them out. Hiding from one's self by anesthetizing the brain solves nothing. You can flee to Cloud Eiglit just so often before you wind up in serious trouble.. Dear Ann: I am going to be blunt and come right to the point. I'm a girl, 16, very attractive, nice figure, lovely clothes, and full of personalty. I sit home night, after night because my morals are high and I simply will not let a fellow maul and paw me in exchange for a night's entertainment. I've had a few dates this semester but they' all ended the same way. I said "No" and never heard from the fellow again. The girls at school with the "reputations" are the popular ones, They have no trouble whatsoever getting dates. Some of them brag that they have as many as two dates in an evening. What is a girl supposed to do? Shall I lower my standards or stay at home and let my brother call me an "Old Maid"? Is it fair that high principles should make me a wall-flower?—BLUE LOU I don't buy it. Lou. Decent moral standards never made a wallflower out of anybody. Your problem isn't "principles", it's how to learn to compound interest. Girls who brag about averaging two dates in an evening aren't popular, they're merely "available",. Their phones may ring often, but they won't ring for long. Your theory that the only girls who get asked for dates are loose and fast, is.just not sound. There arc plenty of decent, first-rate fellows around who are interested in wholesome female 'company. If you're "Blue", Lou, it's because you haven't learned how to strike a corresponding note in others. The best way lo get peopje interested in YOU is- to shmv you are genuinely intorestpd in THEM. Get going. CONFIDENTIALLY: A KEEP 'EM HAPPY WIFE: There's .a law against "Disorderly conduct". You have a right to be concerned. If you want to "Keep 'm. happy".... keep 'm home!

CROSSWORD PUZZLE Antwer to Y « st « rd » ylt *""" Debt at End Of 1956 Was $684 Billion WASHINGTON (UP) — The nation's net public and private debt hit a record 684 billion dollars at the end of last year. That was an increase of 28 billion dollars in- 12 months. However, the 4.5 per cent increase was considerably below the record peacetime increase of $49,500,000,000 in 1955. The Commerce Department said in releasing the figures Monday nighl that the outstanding change last year was a six-billion-dollar "reduction in federal indebtedness, to the public—the first substantial j reduction since- 1948." "This liquidation released funds which could be utilized 'to facilitate last year's large expansion in private investment," the department said 'in its monthly "survey of current business." The report showed that the net increase in the debt of borrowers other than the federal government amounted to 34 billion dollars last year. This included debt increases of $17,500,000,000 by individuals, more than 12 billion dollars by corporations, and $4,500,000,000 by state and local governments. Net new borrowings by individuals last year were seven billion dollars less than the record rise in 1955. The bureau attributed this chiefly lo a reduction in automobile purchases. The total indebtedness of 684 billion dollars includes more than 31 biliion dollars owed by individuals on installment purchases. President Eisenhower decided Saturday that this was not high enough to warrant asking Congress for standby controls to curb installment credit.

Every vital part has been mag- nafluxed X-rayed to make sure there are no faulty pads which might fail while running at 142 miles an hour. Our. tires, brakes, ignition system-everything about the car-is mechanically perfect as we leave the starting line for the 500-rnile grind. What about the mechanical condition of .your car? You should be just as sure of il as we are, because highway conditions are, believe it or not, more hazardous than they are on the race track. And YOU arc carrying passengers. I guess driving race , cars for many years has made me-more critical than most people. Maybe it's because race drivers are more safety-cniicioiis than other drivers. Or maybe it's because I've been talking safe driving to teen-agers across Hie country. Have Car Clit'ckcd Anyway, in driving 1S,(!00 miles in 20 slates in the last year for Ulie Champion highway safety program, I saw some tourists who added a lot of gray hairs to this old head. Maybe, without realizing it, you are driving an unsafe car. Have someone check Ihe lires and brakes. They are highly important. Have them check under the hood, your radiator hose, your battery cables, fan belts, windshield washer container, spark plugs and wiring, if you want a carefree mind while traveling. Race drivers generally concede lhat their success in a race is about 7f> per cunt dcpcndunl. on Ihe mechanical condi'Jon of the car. In many respects an automobile race-especially one like tho Indianapolis 500-mile clas.sic-is a coji- lest of mechanics. The car must be safe and dependable to compete with any degree of success. .It's true with highway driving, too. .Clic-ck Back Scat 1 And three more points: ! 1. .Stay under (he speed limit. Staying below GO miles an hour, 'I average l« miles per gallon in jmy 8-cylinder car and about 41 | miles per hour for a trip, with •j time out every hour .or so for a rest break. 2. If you're out "Sunday driv- ii:ig" on a main express highway j where cars are entitled lo go 50 lo 05 miles an hour, don't go 30 or 33. A car approaching you will have Io make a quick slat) for hia brakes. The person behind him will have to do the same. There ara plenty of country roads for the Sunday driver !o enjoy scenic drives. My advice to enjoy a casual, pleasurable drive is this: Take to the side roads and stay off fast-moving thoroughfares. 3. The little dingbats which hang from rear view mirrors are dis- Iracling. A glance at them at the wrong time can lead lo serious (rouble. And lake a look at tha back scat. Is it packed high with books, maps, Jial, candy and tissue boxes? Then put them away. A sudden stop and you could be tha victim of what (he newspapers might call a "freak" accident. Some of our worst accidents have been "freaks."
