Every ourney eomei to an end. Oori had flow and iati. tying wind-up. It took ui ten deyt to tail from Lisbon to Montreal. Before that we had called at Mar.eillei and gone clou enough to Gibraltar, which tailort call Hit Maiv'i Shin Rock, to throw ttono at it. Or to it teemed. On the way we had patted it at night. In tht tarly morning It rote imprettive and ttark and the photo-graphert were buty with their eamerat. At Litbon we had picked up three mora pattengert. Of the original 1 who had tailed with ut from Montreal only eight were left to new pattengert meant new excitement. Two were Mr. and Mrt. Jamet Nicoll of Calgary. They had been tpending tome montht painting in Sicily. Marion Nicoll It on a Canada Council grant of $2,700. The other wat a Dr. Roienda of Litbon who it In charge of the famout Botanical Cardent there and who It in Canada to tpeak at an international meeting of botanittt. "ft & ' & LIKE MOST PEOPLE who are nearing the end of a fascinating journey we (and most of the other passengers too) tried to pretend it never would end. We swam in the pool, sun-tanned, exchanged addresses, took one another's pictures. We remembered that when our guide met us in Beirut he had said, "Five weeks together' and still speaking to one another." Actually by the time we walked down the gangplank in Montreal East for the, last time only one passenger was not speaking to the others. Which, it seems to us, is something of a record. ft & WE HAD SHARED SO MUCH-those night in Cairo when wa tat on the terrace of the Semlramit Hotel having our dinner while y, . fi. the imported French tinger tang love tongt, the noon wo nearly fainted from the Sahara heat on our way to Sakkara, the afternoon we tpent at the Aeropolit In Athent while the archaeology ttudent from the Univertity of Athent, who wat our guide, wrapped ut with hit own enthutiasm for thit wonder of ancient Greece. We had driven together along the mountainout road to Baalbek in Lebanon and peered into the courtyard of an Arab home where the family wah wat drying. We had been more then nine weekt together. Old, young or middle-aged, none of ut would forget the thingt we had teen together, the experieneet we had had. ft & - & WE KEPT CONSOL'"G OURSELVES by saying, "We have seen too much to absorb it all. Now we will go home and think about it, digest it." We promised to exchange snapshots. We had come from different parts of the North American continent and some of us knew we never would see one another again. But one of the officers had a note of cheer. "There's a saying in Arabic," he said. "It is, "Two mountains meet never. Two men do.' " Then it was over. We began to think of what had happened at home since we had left. We had read no Canadian newspaper until we arrived at Father Point. We had heard Canadian news only as we came close to the shores of Canada. As we walked down the gangplank on to Canadian ground we paused to wave good-bye to our friends on the ship. We were home but we knew, after all we had seen and heard, we never would be quite the same again. -k & t5t Flpase address communications to this column fo Farts and Fancies, The Gazette, or telephone after 2 p.m. week days.

JO tfetler'ee Metleatie No. 225 Marking Hem Alone When marking the front of a skirt, facing the long mirror, you can probably mark a few inches of the skirt back, behind each side seam, while looking in the same mirror. To mark across the back of the skirt, you may have to turn to face the second mir-row in which you see the reflection of your back from, the first mirror. If you must work with only one mirror, mark from one side seam along to center back. Then mark from the other side seam to center back. . You'll have to turn your head a good deal in order to watch the hem marker as it approaches center back. Try to turn your head only, without bending your body or changing the set of your shoulders, because such movements change the position of the skirt in relation to the floor and the hem marker. As you mark the back of the skirt, you will have to change the bulb of the marker from one nana to tne otner somewhere along the line. You may have to move the marker itself once or twice, to keep it facing the skirt. As you manipulate the marker, be careful- not to let your body bend backward he- cause that will make the skirt drop at the back and then the hem line will not be marked correctly. Girl Builds Sets For B.C. Theatre Vancouver.--CP) Susan Stock-bridge would rather build Juliet's balcony than speak from it. In love with the theatre, but only as a craftsman, Miss Stockbridge is technical assistant at the University of British Columbia's summer school of the theatre. When interviewed at the barnlike scenery shop, she was hard at work on scenes for the next production. She says contemporary plays are more stimulating for stage designers than the traditional ones.

Good Posture Prevents Much Strain, Fatigue By JOSEPHINE LOWMAN Many women have an incorrectly balanced pplvis. Th tendency is to stick the hips out in the back. Yet the balance of the pelvis is of the greatest importance. In the first place, when the hips ride out in back like a trailer an otherwise lovely, silhouette is ruined. Then, too, this poor posture causes strain and fatigue. This is a very prevalent feminine figure fault and very woman would be wise to check on it. You may have fallen into this poor posture habit without realizing it. Exercise Just Testing: Pretty Lise Jorry turned soup-tester momentarily this week aboard the S.S.

(Geiette Photo Service) Scout Overhears Criticism Now Has Lost All Confidence The Question: damage to Johnny's self-confidence, even if Johnny was mistaken in feeling hit. On the other hand, supposing Johnny heard correctly, and Mr. B. did criticize him as quoted, then Mr. B. ought to acquaint you with the boy's shortcom- 60 DEAR MABY HAWORTH: One of my sons, I'll call him John, is an A-Student and very interested in scouting. After a year and a half of scouts he is well on his way to becoming a star scout and has been patrol leader for about a year. He has taken his responsibilities very seriously, devoting much time to them; and as a result his patrol has often led in competitions. John's father has been working in Europe the past six months, and I was very happy to have John look up to Mr. B., the troop leader, in his absence. However, last night John accidentally overheard his beloved Mr. B. scolding another scout's mother, because the boy wasn't making any advancement. Mr. B. told this woman that her son has had a good leader in his patrol "not," he said, "like that John Doe who is so dumb, he doesn't know anything: or if he does, never shows it!" Lad, Being Small, Lacks Self-Esteem ' r Mr. B. had always been very friendly to John, and these un-exppcted words, voiced behind his back, were a cruel blow to him. Since John is very small for his age we have always had a hard time kepping up his self-confidence, and I find the situation very hard to deal with alone. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. as he is heartbroken. Sincerely, -Mrs. M. The Answer: Overall View Of The Problem DEAR MRS. M.: In your shoes, I would have got in touch with Mr. B. as soon as possible out of Johnny's hearing, however, and without his knowing I was making the call. And I would have got down to cases with Mr. B., in a frank friendly way, to learn the scout troop leader's version of the conversation that Johnny overheard. I would have conceded that overheard conversations are almost never heard correctly. A vast amount of mischievous misinformation gets into circulation via this faulty transmission system. Further, I would have .considered the possibility that Johnny's name didn't even figure in the colloquy that made him heartsick. As we know, many hypersensitive persons tend to imagine they're being noticed, discussed and disparaged in instances when they're not. So much for preface. As a Scoutmaster, Mr. B. should be man enough to repair the ings, as he sees them, so that you may do what you can to help the lad, and lighten the Scout leader's load a little. I imagine a heart-to-heart talk between Mr. B. and Johnny, with the man instructing the boy on points of performance that he needs to improve, would put them back on a comfortable footing with one another. Especially if Mr. B. makes some passing apologetic or explanatory reference to the overheard comment that shook the lad. M.H. Mary H a w or t h counsels through her column, not by mail or personal interview. Write her in care of The Gazette. In order to get the feeling do the following exercises. Stand tall. Pull the hips under as you bend the knees about one-third down. Hold while you count to five slowly. Straighten lees and continue. Weak, lax abdominal muscles are often a contributing factor to swayback. This is a splendid exercise for strengthening these important elastic bands so that they can do the work they should. Lie on the floor. Bend both knees and place the feet on the floor. Your arms should rest on the floor overhead. Keep the knees bent and the feet on the floor as you raise your trunk and touch the floor with the fingers on each side of you. Lower trunk to the floor and return arms to overhead position. Continue. Relax Kneei It also will be helpful to you if you will keep your knees relaxed when you stand or walk. In other words do not hyper-extend them at the end of each step. If you do this you are almost certain to develop sway-back. If you would like to have my tested abdominal exercises send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request for leaflet No. 2 to Josephine Low-man in care of The Gazette. Launder Blankets With Great Care Summer camping means wool blankets at night and special laundering. Wool requires minimum agitation during laundering, so reduce the washing and spin dry-ing time in the washer. Excessive bleach will dissolve wool. Long periods of agitation may felt good blankets. If they are excessively dirty, it's better to launder dry and then rewash a second time. ' HOUSEHOLD HINT For an appealing and interesting salad cut a slice of cantaloupe crosswise and place on lettuce leaf. Then add a mound of cottage cheese and sprinkle with chopped nuts. HOUSEHOLD HINT Deep drawers in kitchen cabinets make handy places to store pots and pans if the drawers are fitted with slanted dividers large enough to hold specific utensils.
