A-lO Alton Evening Telegraph Friday, January 8, 1971 Ann Landers says. A lovelier you Spring fashion horizon By MARY SUE MILLER Are you a fashion-watcher? Then you know that arguments about length are outmoded. Incoming fashions .range from below the knee , and top of the calf to midcalf and down. "You pays your money and you takes your choice." ; Actually, all of fashion 'stresses individualism — your thing. Some clothes appeal to ; ethnic strains with American Jndian skins and fringes leading the way. Closely followed by covered wagon .quilt and calico patterns in Sunbonnet Sue dresses; by, ; work-clothes in work fabrics ; reminiscent of .a high - balling : trainman. Inspirations from far .places, like India and European folklands, bring handcrafted embroideries on indigenous saris and dirndls. You can go as native as you .like. Or, perhaps, you're a fashion classicist? If so, you're on 'a wide screen. Literate discretion is in the air, as a reaction to masquerades. You see it in white flannel pants with hunting pinks ... in soft, smocked shirtwiast dresses of heavy crepe . . , discretely shaped reefer coats . . . un- fussed rainwear, belted and snug . . . pleated skirts and shirts, correct as Bond Street . . . anything nnvy with white collar and cuffs . . . a checked cape ... a drifty polka dot chemise . . . natural colors and materials such as flax and pongee. Pants? Panlsuits, junip- suits, gauchos, knickers, Bermudas. As we said, it's yours lo choose. Honored on 57th wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Harry Strunk of 1106 Johnson St. in Carlinville were honored on New Year's day in observance of their 57th wedding anniversary. Mr. Strunk and the former Delia Ma e Pniitt were married on Jan. 1, 1941 at the home of his uncle, Albert Young of Alton. After their marriage, the couple resided in the Alton area while Mr. Stunk was employed by the C and IM Railroad. He retired in 1959 after 47 years of service. They later moved to Carlinville in 1966. They are the parents of a son Roy of Taylorvillc. There are two grandchildren. DEAR ANN: Our son is four months old. Before he was born my husband and I decided if we had a boy we would name him Gregory Dennis. My husband's name is Gregory and my father's name is Dennis. My brother's name was also Dennis. He was killed in Vietnam in 1965. We started to call the baby Denny from the day he was horn. He looks very much like my brther. I thought this would please my folks buf it has just about, killed my mother. She says we musl call our son by another name because she can't stand the constant reminder of her own boy who died so young. i think this is selfish of my mother. After all, we selected the name because we like it and we wanted to honor the memory of my brother. This problem has reached the point where my mother refuses to come to our home unless we abide by her wishes. My husband and I need a non- relative to decide whether or not we should bow to Mother's demands? Will you help us, please? — MOM VKKSUS MOM DEAR VERSUS: Call the boy Greg. Your mother's wishes should be respected. * * * DEAR ANN: I married Larry five years ago. I was 21, he was 31 — divorced with a 10-year-old son by his first wife. We now have two little girls of our own. Larry, Jr. has always been a problem when he visits us. He is a mixed up kid, moody, terrible temper and no one can get along with him. 1 have bent over backwards to be pleasant but I have failed to get the boy's confidence and 1 am through knocking myself out. I've tried lo be nice and it doesn't, pay, so now I ignore him and he ignores me. Last July Larry's ex-wife told him she can't manage the boy, that he is loo much for her — he needs his father. So we took Jr. for the rest of the summer. 1 had a headache the whole time. All the while the boy's mother was having a ball, dating like a teen-ager and traveling all over the country. Last, weekend Larry told me Avenues of fashion By 0. E. SCIIOEFFLER Fashion Adviser to Esquire Magazine There has been, probably, more public interest and publicity about the fur furore than in almost any other area of fashion for men. And with reason, too. The first time I tried on a fur coat, it was one of the 1920s-type raccoon coats worn by college men of a previous generation and my knees buckled from the sheer weight of it! Today, furriers are much more knowledgeable, and have taken much of the weight of furs off your shoulders, and given you very good value in the comfort department. A raccoon coat today is almost as voluminous as its 1920s predecessor; it's usually fairly long (to mid-calf), and its shaggy, variegated fur is a very good looking answer to cold weather. Equally shaggy is unplucked nutria, Ihe dark brown fur of a South American animal. But when the guard hairs have been plucked from the nutria skin, it presents a soft, silky pile which is very similar to one of its rivals, sheared beaver. IT HELPS You don't have to be a star pro football quarterback lo wear mink, but it helps. Increasingly, men an; wearing this status fur coat, which is we must take his son into our home. It. seems Jr. has gotten himself in trouble with the law. The judge agreed to drop the charges and place the boy in his father's custody. If we don't take him he'll have to go to a detention home. I can barely stand this kid for a weekend. What will happen if he's here permanently? Larry says he can't, abandon the boy now and I'll just have to put up with it. Please tell me what to do. I want lo keep my marriage together. — A WIlKf'K DEAR A. W.: You have very few options. You'll have to take the boy or separate from your husband. I urge yon to get counseling and learn how to cope with the situation. Later the boy should get professional help. Jr. sounds like a dsturbcd kid who has had a rough time and is showing it. Fur and fur-looks for men Warm and stylish A couple of coats to keep you warm and smart in inland fur-look ideas includes the black acrylic pile (left) with the look of sleek seal in an eight-button double-breasted model and a six-button double-breasted town coat of plucked nutria. DFAR ANN: I'm a young woman with t'nree children. I have been living with a divorced man who promised he'd marry me before the first baby was born but somehow he never got. around to it. I am sure he loves me and I know he adores the kids but I hate to go on living Ihis way. His big hang-up is that he is afraid the marriage might get into the paper. Any advice? - SINGLE MOTHER DEAR SINGLE: In Cook County when a couple files for a marriage license, if they request that the record be kept out of the paper, their wishes are usually granted. Check wilh Ihe Bureau of Vital Statistics in your county. If you tell them why you wish the item left out of the newspaper they will probably cooperate. lil * 4- Wliat awaits you on the other side of the marriage veil? How can you be sure jour marriage will work? Read Ann Landers' booklet "Marriage — What To Expect." Send your request to Ann Landers in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing 50 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope. Stop killing yourself A duodenal ulcer warm enough to watch pro football in at the stadium, and luxurious enough to wear to the most elegant, evening party of the season. And in the case of a tie, look for combinations of any two or more of these furs in one of the season's patchwork treatments. The patchwork approach is also being used extensively in leather coats; keep an eye out. for them. F o r handsome inexpensive practicalily, there's almost nothing to equal the shearling coat or jacket; Ihe newest models aren't sheared as closely as they once were, and the wool shows beyond Hie edge of the leather like thick while fringe. Most notable among shearling emits is the knee-length Swedish Army coat, now close to becoming a classic! Longer shearling coals, many black, or brown-dyed, are also hand-embroiderel in one-of-a-kind designs by native craftsmen in Turkey, Spain and Poland, for an unusual peasant-style effect. Again, in a more light-hearted vein is the revival of long, fringe-like black monkey fur, an idea that brought down the house in a couple of the recent Europe-nil designer collections! Man-made lurs are taking a back seat to nobody, these days, Generally these coats are also somewhat longer (mid-calf length) and are available in black, dark blue and occasionally brown. If you're ecology-minded — and who isn't these days? — the simulated spoiled cal coats can scarcely be distinguished from tlic real thing, and further endanger no living animal! car Mr. Si'lioclfler: Is Hie inaxl-lcngtli out of fashion in ouU'i-foats? — M.T.F., Chicago. Dear M.T.F.: First, let's straighten out any misconceptions we might liave as lo just what a "inaxi-length" ruat is. If you mean ankle-length, they're- just beginning to be big in Europe, and have scarcely made a dent in this country. If you mean mid-calf length, it's been a slow starter in popularity, but 1 think it's going to catch on more and more as a good answer lo protection from the cold and wet wealher. Dr. Pcler J. Steincrohn DOCTOR: How long have you been bothered with indigestion? PATIENT: I remember thai il began aboul four years ago, al the time I was preparing for my final exams. I was afraid I wouldn't pass and gel my degree. My stomach was tense and bunched up and painful. I used lo lake milk and crackers so 1 could sleep. The pain used lo wake me up around Ihvec o'clock. II was better for awhile afler I graduated. But I've been under much pressure in my job as a supervisor in our office, and the pain has come back. I haven't been to a doctor because taking milk and antacid tablets has kept me fairly comfortable until lately. Now the pain comes and goes every clay. DOCTOR: What do you mean by "comes and goes"? PATIENT: I've discovered lhal I feel all righl unlil midmorning. Then the pain comes on. I've learned to take some milk, and the pain goes away. I eat lunch and feel comfortable. But in mid-aflornoon and late at night — and sometimes early in the morning while I've been sleeping — Ihe pain keeps coming back. Even milk and crackers don'l seem lo help as much Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWKLL Brussels sprouts perk up a plate and palate as they used to. That's why I'm here. I figure it's about time to learn what it's all about. Can it. be my gall bladder? DOCTOR: It might be gall bladder trouble, or due to hiatal hernia, or to a chronic pancreatitis. But if you asked any doctor to lake an educated guess, after hearing your story, he'd want to make sure thai you haven't got a duodenal ulcer. The history of pain relieved by fond always makes us suspicious. RESUME: X rays confirmed the preliminary diagnosis. The patient had changes indicating ulcer of the duodenum (first part of Ihe intesline as il leaves the stomach). There was no evidence of gallstones or of hiatal hernia. He was put on milk and cream every few hours as a basic diet for a week, and advised to lake frequent feeding of bland foods thereafter — rather than three meals a day. He quit his Iwo-packs-a-day smoking habit, cut down his coffee from seven or eighl cups a day lo one in the morning. Tranquilisrers helped. But, what seemed most important was change of job — which he later admitted he hated. Wilhin Ihree months, his pains disappeared, and X rays showed definite healing of the ulcer. COMMENT: Many people self-treat themselves, completely unaware thai the underlying cause may be ulcer. Early investigation might save them unnecessary suffering and prevent serious complicalions. By ALICE DENIIOFF Fresh Brussels sprouts are still in many markets, so before they vanish until late next year, buy some and treat the family lo dishes inade with these delectable baby cabbages. There's little waste in the tiny heads that nod "yes" lo a greal many dishes that have qiule a gourmet air and flavorful flair, dishes such as: BRUSSELS SPROUTS CHEESE SOUP 1 pint fresh Brussels sprouts 2 tablespoons minced oniun 3 tablespoons butler or margarine 3 lablespoons flour V/2 teaspoons salt Dash pepper 2 cups milk V/ 2 cups water 1 beef bouillon cube % cup grated Cheddar cheese Cook sprouls in small amount of boiling sailed waler in covered saucepan unlil jusl lender.

Drain, if necessary. Lightly toss with butter and pecans. Birth announcements Should a recurrent dream be checked out? Answer: If a person is having the same dream over and over again for years and il is causing him concern, it won't, do any harm to see a psychiatrist and have Ihe dream checked. Even if his dream is brought on by some physical stimulus that causes him lo dream the .same dream, it is worth (lie effort to set his fears at rest. Sometimes an attempt at self- analyzing a dream only propagates the dream pattern. Should martial fights be kept from a child? Answer: Within reason; there is no point in distressing a child everytime mother and father have a battle. If there is a serious fight, though, that might possibly affect the parents' relationship toward their child, the couple should try lo give a forthright picture of the dispute lo Ihe youngster, and they should do il so skillfully that he will not get the impression that lie is responsible for his folks' fighting. fan a snob get over being snob? Answer: Yes, if he sincerely wants to change, and if he understands why he has been a snob. There, of course, can be a snag if someone has such an attitude ingrained in his personality. He may be using his snobbish outlook lo compensate for some quality or characteristic he lacks. If he has to make adjustments to build up his ego, then he frequently finds himself acting like a snob, and others have to suffer. Mr. and Mrs. Robert W.
