PACMI on Parenthood ... f ATIRNAL JUSTKI I griped when my tweezers were mounting their bugs. And you gave me no backing or pity. My violent protests were greeted with shrugs When my hairbrush was grooming the kitty. My best paring knife cut their dead frog apart, And you stayed the impassive appraiser. So don't come to me with your problem, dear heart. Now you find they've been using your razor!. To Note 63rd Anniversary Mr. and Mrs, frank Singleton, former residents of Abingdon, now both residents at the Knox County Nursing Home, Knoxvllle, will celebrate their 63rd wedding anniversary July 22, Mr. and Mrs. Singleton wore married July 22, 1900, in Avon. They are the parents of five chit* dren, Mrs. Vernon (Iva) Creasey of Chatham, Mrs. Joe (Agnes) Parsons of Springfield, Mrs. Lyte (Mabel) McGrew of Abingdon, Bay Singleton of Rosevilte and Mrs. Hugh (Lillian) Allison of Abingdon. The Singletons also have 25 grandchildren and 39 great­ grandchildren. They will note the anniversary at the home, as Mr. Singleton has been bedfast for three years. r . • Fair Advice NEW YORK (UPI)-A Women's Advisory Council has been formed for the New York 196445 World's Fair. The committee will receive, advise, entertain and aid prominent women and women's groups at the Fair. Conclude Fall- (Continued from page 8) the deep pile wools, the textured silks and blends calling for simple lines rather than gee-gaw de' cor. —Coiffures. Hair smooth, straight, just below ear tip length, often puffed through the back of the crown. —Hats. A melange of shapes, but the tall crown is featured in most of them. No tiny pill boxes. » —Neckline. Much of the collarless, rounded neckline on dresses. Collars on coats and suits lie flat. Some muffling up, however, against winter chill in a few collections. —Bodice. Easy-fitting through the upper part of the body in most cases, figure outlined in some collections by the bias cut of the fabric. A trend to widened sleevelessness, especially with dresses under jackets or coats. The wrist-long, tight sleeve, a favorite for late day and evening clothes.. —Waistline. Undecided, wandering all over the midsection, sometimes placed high under the bosom, sometimes ignored altogether, sometimes moved down around the hips through seams or low- placed belts. Or, the waistline settles down in front, but is ignored at the back, giving a straight line from collar to hem at the back. —Hemline. Just covering the kneecap for day. For evening, more floor length dinner gowns and formals than in many seasons. Floor length at-home fashions abound, in glamour togs skirted, culotte legged, or slim trousers. —Footwear. Boots go with everything from daytime walking skirt lengths right on into evening for wear with crepes, brocades, lames, or jewelled fabrics. Look also for the one or two • lace Oxford slipper to go with the country casual, and for cable knit stockings. Patent on Pastels If you like to wear pastel shoes during the summer months, your best bet is patent leather. The new patent pastels can be wiped free of soil in a jiffy, and look fresh and pretty for each wearing. Peeling a batch of potatoes to cook before making potato salad? Spread some paper on the kitchen counter and let the paring from the spuds fall on it, then swoop up parings and paper and put into the garbage can. If you use a sink strainer, of course, you can peel the potatoes over it, Polly'g Pointers By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—Like most children, my two daughters love drawing so we painted the inside of the toy cupboard doors with blackboard paint.

Galesburq Reaister*Maif, Gafesbum 111, Thursday, July 18, 1963 9 By RAY SHERWOOD As we roll tip our sleeves and do battle against weeds and insects invading the garden, the roster of chemical weapons lengthens. The hitch is that some of these wonder-workers are highly potent chemicals capable of producing toxic reactions unless used with proper respect and attention. We have been warned repeatedly to read labels to determine toxic possibilities, and to follow manufacturers' directions. But are we listening? After the most recent warnings from the government, I checked our house and garden supplies. One point apparent in our establishment is that family members and occasional hired help who use the chemicals vary in their appreciation of safety factors. in the garage, an uncorked jug which I thought contained water, turned out to be muriatic acid left by a handy man who had been doing brick and cement repair. Someone had dropped an aerosol bug bomb into the trash basket and it could have wound up in the incinerator, despite the explicit directions against incinerating printed on the can. We seemed to have too many cans and botlfcs containing tag ends of the potent killers slashed any old place tor lack of storage space. As a step towards more orderly and safer handling of such sup- emtcalA plies, t have designated one utility room shelf where they must be kept. If I had very young children, I would invest in lockable cabinets such as metal ones which can be set on a table or hung on the wall, and which are opened or closed with a key. Careful buying has cut down j the number of cans and bottles to store. Closer reading of labels has disclosed some sprays which arc non-toxic and effective against such pets as flies and mosquitos. Where stronger sprays or powders are advised, I make it a point to wear washable (or disposable) plastic gloves to avoid contact between chemical and skin.

Anything needed from the grocery is added so there is a read y-made list when it conies time for shopping. A damp sponge wipes it off clean and ready for a new list.—POLLY DEAR POLLY—To keep a tubular sash from twisting and folding over in the wrong places, cut an old plastic belt to your waist measurements. Slit the inside of the sash at the point where it ties and insert the belt as far as the tie point on the other side of the .sash. Finish off the slit with button hole stitches. The belt can be removed when the dress is washed.—MRS. L. S. DEAR POLLY — Our garage keys never seemed to get back on their own special hook. They have been hidden away in old coat pockets and, on occasion, have been carried to school. I solved the problem by forming a ring, six inches in diameter, out of heavy wire, soldering the ends together to close the ring and tying the keys to it with a heavy cord. This assembly is too large to get into a pocket but can be conveniently slipped on to your arm when you are carrying heavy bundles. This large ring has certainly solved our garage key problem. It is always returned to the proper hook.—EARL GIRLS —The honors (and the Polly Dollar) again go to one of our practical' readers of the opposite sex.—POLLY DEAR POLLY —My little girl loves headbands and when I made her a playsuit, she found a piece of the material and asked me to wrap it around her head for a headband. I decided to make her one. I folded a strip of material, sewed and turned it, making it about two inches shorter than needed to go around her head. Then I sewed a piece of elastic between the two ends. She now has headbands to match all her different dresses and play- suits. Some are trimmed with bows, too.—MRS. F. B.

If one does not suit your particular need perhaps the other will.— POLLY DEAR POLLY — Since headbands are so popular I am sure mothers with girls are exhausting their cookie jar funds keeping the girls well supplied. My 13-year-old daughter came up with this bright idea. Make headbands from old and worn leotards. Cut a strip twice the desired width of the band, stitch two sides together and turn by using a pencil or long shears. Press with the steam iron. Now the girls can have dozens of head, bands.—MRS.

Summer Storekeep GUILFORD, COnn. (AP)—Strawberry sodas, coupled with determination and good marks, are going to get Kathy Rhodes through college. She hopes anyway. The blonde, blue-eyed 16-year- old recently opened a variety store in the lively summer colony of Indian Cove near Guilford. The store closed last summer when the owners—a Hartford, Conn., family—found they could no longer operate it. "It was missed by residents of the beach colonies here," Kathy says. The teen-agers missed the juke box. Their kid brothers and sisters had no place to spend their pennies. And their parents were unable to pick up emergency groceries. The snack bar had been a favorite gathering place for summer socializing. A junior honor student at. Guilford High School, Kathy plans to save every penny she makes on the summer enterprise for her college education. If the venture is a success, she also plans to help provide college funds for her four younger brothers. The whole family got into the act when Kathy drew up the inventory list, made an estimate of her expenses and tapped her dad for a loan. Kathy, her 15-year-old brother Dave and their grandfather will live in an apartment in the back of the store during the summer months and will work 12 hours every day. When Dave goes off to camp for two weeks — his reward for helping in the store — another brother, 12-year-old Tommy, will take over his chores. Brothers Peter, 6, and Willie, 2, have offered their moral support. Mrs. Rhodes will concoct the house specials — goulashes, stews and long sandwiches known locally as grinders. A good cook herself, Kathy learned the hard way how to jerk sodas. Or, perhaps it was her family who did the suffering: "I sat them all down one night and experimented. I thought I'd never get it right until someone; remembered you're supposed to j use syrup. After that, they v/erej great," she says. I Kline 's We ore cleaning house on summer clothing.
