ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JUNE 14,1980 The Women . Social Events — Group Activities icello College Instructors Married Monday in Iowa Church MRS. ROBERT SHEWMAN Ann Landers She Says the Secret Is in the Tone of Voice DEAR ANN: I just read the letter from the girl who could not think of a good reason for telling her boy friend to keep I his hands to fhimself. I was ] once in that (very same spot. [I felt I had to I be nice to the [boys or they I wouldn't take I me out. Popu- Marity was the I big thing in my Ann Landers, life and I didn't want to take a chance on offending anybody. Pretty soon it was plain that I was being out-talked every time I had a date. Then I smartened up and decided I didn't owe anybody any explanations. I just said, "Look, George, I don't have to give you any reasons why not. You know the difference between right and wrong. Now behave yourself or take me home." The j tone of my voice showed I meant business and I never had any trouble after that. I also discovered that once I started to call the signals I had more dates than ever— and the right kind too. SMARTER NOW • • • • DEAR ANN: About that guy who found two dimes on the floor of the taxi cab and put them in his pocket: You told his girl friend he was a cheapskate and he should have turned the money over to the driver. This letter is being written by five graduating seniors from Chicago's top law school, If not Illinois' best. Your decision against the boy friend was ill-considered and bogus. According to Illinois law the back seat of a taxi cab is a public place. Any personal property found therein is presumed to be lost and belongs to the finder. We suggest that you immediately reverse your decision in favor of the boy friend until the true owner proves title and demands return of same. TOP TEN PERCENTERS DEAR TOP TEN PERCENTERS: One of Chicago's finest law firms (if not Illinois' best) reviewed your findings and has advised me as follows: "A taxi cab is not a public place. It is a privately owned vehicle used as a common carrier. The driver has possession and custody of the vehicle and is responsible tor safely transporting its passengers and their goods. A passenger in a taxi cab is not in possession of the cab and has no right to any property therein." If you five law student* represent the best of the current crop of future attorneys, heaven help u* all. » * * • DEAR ANW: I'm engaged to marry a very nice man. He left town three weeks »go to travel tor hit firm for the next, five months. He has already called IB* long-distance seven timae, I appreciate his thought- (uloew, but I Jwie tor him to spend the money. I've begged him to drop me a line instead but he says he never writes letters to anyone. Why would a man flatly refuse to write a letter? I happen to know he didn't have much of a formal education. Could this be it? BAFFLED FIANCEE DEAR BAFFLED: That could be it, all right. He's probably upsure of his spelling and grammar. Now that you know—<juit nagging. Keep the phone conversations brief and let him know you appreciate his thoughtfulness. * • • * Confidential to PUZZLED TEEN-AGER: The boy should thank the girl for the dance and she should say "I enjoyed it, too." • • • * Does almost everyone have a good time but you? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How to Be.Well-Liked," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Alton Telegraph and enclose a stamped, self- addressed envelope.) (c) I960, Field EnUrprlsei, Inc.

It Is frustrating to work diligently on a skin, fit and tailor It perfectly and then find, after a few wearings, that the waistbtmd has stretched. You then either put on a belt and pull it in tight or else take the skirt apart and alter it. Frankly, I can't blame you if you use the belt ttitthod, because it's both tedious and infuriating to alter a garment that has been recently made. However, If you start out right, the waistband of a skirt can be made so that it does not stretch. Cut waistband 4 inches longer than your waist measurement. Use the selvage for one edge for a smooth finished waistband and to prevent pulling out of shape. The waistband should be completed and fitted to you separately from the skirt. Then the skirt is eased to fit the waistband. Any excess of waistband may be cut off after you have had a fitting. Interfacing is important. It prevents stretching and the band from curling over. If you cannot cut the band with the selvage on one edge, then stitch seam binding alone; one edge instead, % inch from edge on the wrong side. Cut interfacing piece one- half as wide as waistband and the same length. Baste interfacing to wrong side of one- half of the waistband (A). If skirt is* to be laundered, stitch interfacing to band along the four sides. If it is to be dry cleaned, catch-stitch in place. Fit band to your waistline, so it fits as you desire. Mark- at each end. Fold band in half lengthwise and stitch across ends, leaving V/a inch excess to allow for overlapping. The inside end is straight, and the other end may be straight or pointed (B). Trim seams; clip corners; turn right side out and press. Pin and baste faff* band to right side of skirt, easing skirt at waist to fit band (Ct. Try skirt on to test fit of band. Make any necessary adjustment. Stitch belt of skirt, taking full seam allowance. Trim seam, cutting skirt edge narrower than band edge. Press waistline seam up and inside the band. Turn under free edge of belt and pin over seam edges. Whip edge into place as shown (D). If you wish, top.stitch edges of band, top and bottom. Close zipper. Lap ends of band and mark position of hooks and eyes. Sew them on in line with zipper. Miss Scott is happy to help Seams to Me readers with sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobe and fashions. However, because so many are seeking her assistance, Miss Scott asks readers to please limit their letters to only one question. Send your question to Patricia Scott in care of the Alton Telegraph, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope for reply. (c) I860, Field Enterprise*, Inc.
