A-10 Alton Evening Tnlegrapli Friday, January 8, 1971 Fashions in nurses' uniforms converted for off-duty hours By ANN HENCKEN AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Dr. Rex Morgan would keel over In a dead faint if he could see nurse June Gale's latest uniform—and its variations. As quick as you can say acetylsalicylie acid, a nurse can change her new pants-suit, uniform into an ensemble fit for off-duty fun. She just adds a feather blouse In her while nurse's slacks, or she can w e a r her tunic over multistriped short shorts. The trend to pants for hospital nurses started last year and caught on at hospitals across the conn! 17. Younger nurses with highly active jobs in specialized units were generally the guinea pigs —and for good reason. As skirts crept higher anri higher in the 19fifls, nurses with short skirts risked exposing their stocking tops. However, now thai nurses are winning the fighl for pants suits in many places, designers are saying long pants are becoming a part of the past. Short shorts, yes. Knickers, yes. Long pants, yawn. Nurses' costumes from 1805 were shown (luring an all- white uniforms presentation Thursday at the New York Couture National Press Week- jusl as an interesting contrast. l?ul with their long skirts and while aprons, these old uniforms looked more like 1971, for belter or for worse.

Today's Problem DEAR POLLY — I was given an oven-proof stoneware fondue pot but now understand that such ceramic pots cannot, be used for beef 'fondue, just cheese. They crack under intense heal from hot oil..J am now wondering if stoneware is considered in the same class as ceramics. —MRS. P. D. II. DEAR POLLY — Dobie can get rid of the crease left when she lowers the hem of a skirt by thoroughly wetting strips of brown paper cut from a grocery bag, laying thorn over the crease and pressing until the paper is perfectly dry. I find this a tried-and-lrue method. — PEARL DEAK (illtLS — Dodic asked specifically about (Increase (eft In a polyester dress. Mrs. K. It. writes that she satisfactorily removed such a crease in a polyester double knit by using a spray product made for removing "permanent press" creases but that In using it directions on the can must be followed specifically. Fabrics being made of many things and combinations of things cause the problem of having one thing work on one such fabric and (hen not working on another. A dry cleaner says such creases in plycster cannot be removed effectively at home as rather a high temperature is rqulrcd. Then there is the danger of having a synthetic fabric belt. Professionals use a special solution plus heat and still do not insure perfect results. Sometimes the crease Itself comes out but a wear mark is left along the crease line. In spile of all this, Hie wet brown paper method did completely remove the deep crease in (he double knit fabric I used. — POLLY. He cozy, clashing in a knit- led cape—long or short version!

Boozing mom: This is for you MISS 1'RESSLKY L fe DEAR ANN: I am writing in the hope that my mother will see this letter and do something about herself. Mom is a big wheel in our town. Everyone knows her as an active leader and a crusader for worthy causes. Her problem: Booze. Mom doesn't touch a drop during the day. She starts nipping while she fixes supper. She cooks with sherry and drinks half a bottle before Dad gets home. If he is 30 minutes late, the food is burned and she is plastered. Mom fell twice last week and was lucky she didn't break her n^ck. It makes me sick lo see a woman of her intelligence staggering around makii g no sense. I'll be going aw;iy to college next year and I'm scared to death of what might happen to Mom if she's left alone in the house. Please, Ann, tell her to join A.A. — D.M. DKAll D.M.: Telling her to join A.A. is no answer. Until your mother feels she's ready for A.A. it won't do her any good. I hope she sees this letter, recognizes herself and decides the lime is NOW. DUAJt ANN: You gave some advice to Ihe woman, whose mother called her ten times a day. Do you have any advice for nu>V My mother is wonderful. It's my mother-in-law who is driving me buggy. We don't need an alarm clock. She wakes us up every morning at 7:30. 1 counted her calls yesterday. There were eleven. Her last call was the ring is indistinguishable from the second phone. When the old phone rings you'll know it's the doll and you can answer when and if you feel like it vas at 9:35 at night. She was telling us to go to bed and get some rest. If my husband and I aren't home she starts calling our friends. ' We've had several people tell us that Don's mother was .looking for us the other night. They hoped nothing was wrong. This can be embarrassing, especially when she wakes people up. When our daughter is home (weekends) she answers the phone. I've' sked her lo tell Grandma I'll call her back. This makes Grandma mad so she phones every five minutes until 1 talk to her. My husband says to take the phone out, but 1 hale to cut myself off from friends and other family. What do you suggest? — MA BELL'S PRISONER DKAH PKISONUK: Your mother-in-law has a cas,e of chronic telephonilis — a neurotic compulsion for which there js no known cure. I suggest a second phone, unlisted. It would be worth the money lo free yourself from her m e r c i 1 e s s badgering. Inform your friends and family of the new number. Leave the old phone in — just for your mother-in- law. Turn the bell down so Out There Bill Gargan, internationally known actor and crusader for the American Cancer Society, will be the guest of honor at the American Cancer Society, Madison County Unit's first Annual Mardi Gras Costume Bail to be held on Feb. 20 in the ball room of the Mineral Springs Hotel.

In reference to the Criss award the actor says "Whoever thought that an Irishman from Brooklyn, N.Y., could ever receive an award (hat would include him in such distinguished company as Dr. Jonas Salk, J. Edgar Hoover, Dr. Howard Rush and Dr. Tom Dooley. It happened to me. I still can't believe it." In 1931 he was presented the Drama Critics award for the most outstanding performance of the year for his role in "Animal Kingdom." He was also nominated for an Academy Award for his work in the film "THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED." WILLIAM GARGAN „, , ,. 1S ^-i__«, T ° bc Maidl GrES DEAH ANN: Two years ago you printed a saying in your column: "To worry is not to trust. To trust is not to worry." These words helped me and my family through a very rough period. ' My older brother was sent to Vietnam just about then. Everyone in the family adored him." If anything had happened to my brother we would have all gone to pieces. I embroidered your saying, framed it and hung it on the kitchen wall. II became our family motto. My brother is home now and we are so thankful. I am sure we all worried less because of the comfort we found in that saying. Although 1 made the tapestry to give us courage while waiting, I now realize it goes for every aspect of life. Thank you, Ann. — POUGHKEEPSIE DKAll PO: I'm glad the motto helped, and I'm sure your letter will help others. How far should a teen-age couple go? Can necking be safe?
