COMMENT: I'm not ;sure as YOU are thai everybody knows how to treat the common cold. There are all kinds of colds and all kinds of people. Most of us consider the cold nothing more than a nuisance. This was as true centuries ago as it is now. For example there was a Roman saying that describes our present attitude.: "There is only one way to treat a cold — with conlempf." ttiit the common cold is not dismayed by our indifference.

A lovelier you Care of your hoots By MARY SUE MILLER Do take those weather- beaten boots out of circulation until you find time to refurbish them. Boots may be ;handsome but they become poor things when rain, mud, snow or rock salt get to them. Like right about now! Made of vinyl or other manmade materials, boots can easily be wiped clean with a sudsy sponge and rinsed with •clear water. Thereafter a soft cloth takes care of drying and , polishing in one operation. Today's leather boots have special finishes to keep them supple and cleanable. They 't o o respond In sudsy spongings, if followed by a rinse with a barely damp cloth. Be sure to let leathers dry thoroughly before wearing. If scuffed or dull, colorless liquid polish or paste wax brings up luster. The insides of boots also need renovating. Always when !wet seeps in. And that is bound to happen, unless-; the construction is truly waterproof via sealed seams. To take care of a little or a lot of interior damp, blot insides with paper towels. Then insert the hose of a hair dryer and •blow the lining dry. That way boots are ready for wear in short order. All interiors need ventilation. When not in use boots .should be left ,'uear an open window fairly oflen, not always slowed in an airless bag. Linings will feel fresher. Be fresher.

No invitations are being mailed. higher than accidents, let's keep remembering that the. common cold can be potentially destructive. Y o u have undoubtedly heard of its most common complications. Such as tonsillitis, middle car infection, sinusitis, inflammation of the trachea, bronchitis, pneumonia, and other infections. How to prevent colds? I wish I knew. We are aware that it is probably a virus of some sort that initiates and spreads the infection. We also know that after the virus attacks, the secondary invaders are bacteria. They are the ones that cause the f a m i I i a r symptoms of sneezing, coughing, nasal d i s c li a r g e , indisposition, headache and other aches and discomforts. Some experiments lately have reported that chilling and exposure to drafts are not at all responsible for the common cold. From ,my own personal experience and what I have observed in practice, I must disagree. It is undoubtedly true that many people arc actually s u s c e p t i b 1 e to sudden changes in body temperature, and are more likely to come down with a cold. Other predisposing causes in some people — and they vary — are physical fatigue, lack of sleep, exposure to irritating dusts and gases, overdrinking, overeating, and allergies. Any or all of these may cause lowered resistance. Another important consideration is this: during flu epidemics stay away from crowded places, and run from the careless fellow who coughs or sneezes in your face. Treatment? As you say, everybody has his own favorite routine. But here's a tip: if a cold hangs on longer than you think it should, better call your doctor — especially if a child is involved. It's not not the cold but it's the complications tha deserve expert, management. MEDICALETTES DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: Twenty-two years ago I had a complete hysterectomy. About a year later the doctor said I ha da small rectocclc and small cyslocele. Now my bladder has fallen and protrudes. I've been told to wait six months before another checkup. Meanwhile I'm uncomfortable, under a nervous strain, and can't rest well. What shall I do? — Mrs. M. COMMENT: A weakness in the muscles and tissues in the "pelvic floor" often causes a condition similar to yours. Usually, it is easily improved by an operation commonly called a "pelvic repair." . Why not. ask your doctor to gel another gynecologist's opinion? You may not have to wajl six months before overcoming your difficulty.

Leggins are by Burlington. Fashion in the neivs Enhance legs with leggins By HELEN JIENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) — The short, heavy-set, girl may justifiably dislike the midi look. But those who argue against it simply because it covers their shapely legs should take another look al the slits, high button openings and zippers that can stop as high as you want them to go. The decorative leg is even more prominent in the fashion limelight this season than in the days when the micro-mini reigned unchallenged. Newest in elegant leg fashions are Leggins which fit comfortably under the instep and provide eye-catching interest, to just below the knee, assuring superlative fashion impact whatever the choice of hemline. A wardrobe of five different styles provides a glaxy of flattering boot looks with the bonus of perfect comfort. And this innovative leg fashion zips on and off with the greatest of ease. Mos dramatic of the series is the zebra design suggested for wear with an all-black costume, black or white shoes and a zebra scarf. What a far echo from the old days when leggings were only for warmth. And there's a glamor style for evening, too, in a glit- t e r i n g brocade that's beguiling foil for silver slippers and assures dancing comfort even in the small hours. Another dramatic style is a tapestry design with red and brown predominating. This makes a particularly smashing effect when worn with brown shoes and an all- brown costume. Brown vinyl suede with decorative front lacings gives legs elegant enhancement sorship of Monticello and with matching or contrasting shoes. For a flattering all in one look wear the vinyl suede in black or rust shades with shoes that match. But for the very newest look adventure with ' contrast. Eating habits are important AP Newsfcatures "The average American eats far too much," says Richard Hitlleman, one of the nation's leading experts on Yoga. Mr. Hitlleman, 44, who has had a nationally televised yoga program for nearly a decade, maintains that a follower of his system can assure himself not only longevity, but "a radiantly healthy body and pliant limbs as well." But, he adds, a good share of success depends on "how carefully the exerciser watches his food intake." His views are outlined in his new book "YOGA 28-Day Exercise Plan." "Your organism is a precision instrument designed to function at, its peak on small amounts of high-quality food," says the author. "Eaton sparingly, such foods can nourish you and leave important energies free to help activate those little-used forces with which Yoga is concerned." According to the book, all foods should be consumed in a form "as close to their natural state as digestion permits." That, is the state in which most foods contain life-force. "When foods are boiled, fried, roasted, refined, canned, frozen, preserved, fumigated, aged, pasteurized, e uric h e d and otherwise subjected 'o the many modern processes, this life-force is seriously reduced or killed," he says. llittlemau's variety of yoga is the hatha school, which places great emphasis on physical activities, rather t h a n the contemplative aspects of the discipline. According to the yoga spokesman, diet has a pronounced effect on the way one feels and acts. "After some meals, you are alive College notes Miss Denise Amschler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Amschler of 5115 Jerome Drive, Godfrey, is listed as a five-point grade student for the fall term at Southern Illinois University, Carlmmlalo. Miss Amschler is a junior health major. (looking rues For a cheery snack, combine equal parts of cream and Roquefort cheese.

The difference between these two states can be attributed to the food you have consumed." The exercise book terms rich, heavy foods as the culprits which act to devitalize the body and sap life-force. Overeating is cited as a cause of many physical disorders, particularly if one's intake is heavy on the many inferior foods that form toxins, acids and harmful waste products. Nutritionists maintain that a physical organism is low in resistance when its defense agents are busy in other areas — coping with toxins, congestions and other deposits — so that it cannot fight germs. "That is why the student of yoga must make certain that diet goes not inhibit the life-force already existent in the organism or the new life- force gained through exercises, 1 " Hittleman says. He has outlined a basic three-point food program: — Eat only light, agreeable nourishing foods, that leave you feeling energized in body and clear in mind afterward. — Eat foods, where possible, in their natural stale. Foods that grow and milk products are high hj life- force, losing this force to the extent they are tampered with by canning and preserving methods. Most fruits and vegetables can be eaten raw or lightly steamed or baked. Dairy products of low fat content only should be consumed. — Refined sugar products,, coffee, liquor and too much high protein foods are considered artificial stimulants. Meat, fish and poultry should be consumed moderately. DEAR ANN: I'm a sophomer at the University of Arizona. Age 19. Height 5'10". Weight 160. I dress like most of the guys around here — and I look like a normal 19-year-old kid. I like girls but I don't date much because I'm too busy working a part- time job and hitting the books. For some unknown reason I've been propositioned by queers three times since September. This bothers the living daylights out of me. Last night I was having a bottle of pop at the Student Union and this creepy kid came up to me and said he was a photographer. He handed me a card with his name and address on it and asked if I'd like to model for some pictures. He said he'd pay me well for my time because he worked on commission for a couple of advertising agencies. Of all the cornball junk this has got to be the crummiest line yet. I was so doggone mad I nearly punched him in the mouth. Please tell me why a straight guy would attract these kooks? What can I do about it? — SHOOK IN THE DESERT DEAR SHOOK: If you'll check with your buddies you'd discover that almost all of them get a few passes now and then. You seem to be getting more than your share, however, and it's probably because you are prettier than most guys. My advice is to keep your cool. Tell the crusiers to shove off. You don't need to punch anybody in the mouth Hospital Auxiliary, elects staff Mrs. Daniel Diamond has been' elected president of the Wood River Township Hospital Auxiliary and will be installed for her second term of office at the 6:30 p.m. annual dinner meeting Jan. 19 in the Wood River Masonic Temple.

Answer: No; and if you don't believe it, listen to husbands moan that, as women's legs go undercover in public, they have to pay the "cover charge." Although women tried to resist the longer-length, the mini was doomed from the first. Just as Mrs. Cavewoman couldn't wait to try on the new pelts brought home from the hunt, no woman can feel anything but dowdy in last year's clothes when the new ones arrive. Do writers find it easy to write? Answer: No. Thai's liko asking a kid if he likes to do term papers, essays and book reports.

DEAR ANN: I am still burning from your lousy advice to that poor girl whose in-laws hounded her so unmercifully to have a baby that she finally decided to fake it by putting a pillow under her dress. Why in the world did you tell HER to see a psychiatrist? Il.'s her in-laws who are nuts. The girl was merely seeking a solution to her problem. I know what I'm talking about, Ann, because my crazy In-laws were the same way. They were so obsessed with the desire to be grandparents that they drove my sister-in- law to the divorce court and they pressured me into having four kids I didn't want. It was the only way to shut them up and get them off my back. So please, Ann Landers, get with it or turn in your typewriter. I'm beginning to think you are the one who should see a psychiatrist. — MONTREAL DEAR MON: YOU had four kids you didn't want just to shut your in-laws up and get them off your back? And I should see a psychiatrist?? Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN: Here's how I solved the non-stop-barking- dog dilemma: After three sleepless nights I got out of bed (at 3:00 a.m.), drove my car out of the garage, parked in the driveway right under our neighbor's window and leaned on the horn. I kept the horn going for 15 minutes without a let-up. The neighbors came out wild-eyed — screaming threats about having me an ..sted for disturbing the peace. I told them I was not making any more noise than their dog. Within three minutes they took the mutt in the house. Since that night we've never heard a sound out of man or dog. - BEAUTIFUL DREAMER DEAR BEAUTIFUL: Thanks for writing. You're lucky the neighbors on the other side didn't call the police! . If you have trouble getting along with your parents...If you can't get them to let you live your own life, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Bugged By Parents? How To (Get More Freedom." Send 50 cents in coin with you r request and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to Ann Landers, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. Heads Rebekah lodge MRS.

Perhaps there is a clue in Hie words of Dorothy Parker for the reason writers become writers. She said about the only thing worse for a writer than writing is not to write. Is u happy child in for a shock when he grows up? Answer: No. The happy child is in a much better position to withstand the hard reality of life when he grows up than the youngster who was ignored, rejected and unloved. Loving parents help a child build up his confidence in himself and in others. Even if someone should suffer adversity soon after reaching adulthood, if he had received love as a child, he will be able to deal with misfortune without going to pieces. (€> 1070.
