Soybeans Add Originality To Menus Homemakers who want to put more variety and taste appeal in their meals will be interested in research being done at the University of Illinois on soybean foods. Soybeans can add both nutritive value and originality to the average American diet. According to Frances O. Van Duyne, professor of foods at the University of Illinois, soybeans in any form are good sources of protein, minerals, vitamins and energy. Served as a vegetable like peas or corn, the fresh, immature soybeans are very attractive. Their crispness and brilliant green color make them excellent for salads. The fresh soybeans are cooked like garden peas. Cooked soybeans combine well with other vegetables and with meats and fish. The dried soybeans can be used in casseroles, creamed dishes, sandwiches or soups. To prepare the dried beans, soak them overnight, and cook them as you would navy beans. Many soybean recipes that appeal to American tastes have been developed in the food research laboratory of the Department of Home Economics at the University of Illinois.

FOR AIRLINE RESERVATIONS •nd TICKETS Cell the TRAVEL PHONE HO 5-2558 Trovtl TodayThere'sDteadvantage Of Too Many Advantages DKAH ANfft 1 urn 10 yean old and already t am writing to an advice column. t have the greatest parent* 5'ou could ask for. The trouble Is they keep telling me that they had It much harder when they were my age. My dad keeps harping that he helped on a farm, took care of chickens, milked Ann Lander*, cows and tended the vegetable garden all by himself. We live in an apartment and it would be hard to have cows and chickens up here. The way they talk kids today have It much easier than the folks in the olden days. Is this true or do they just have false memories? Please answer In the paper. I feel like a no- good kid. NEW FANGLED DEAR NEW FANGLED: Sorry to desert the young troops, but most kids today have it a lot easier than their parents had it. "In the "olden days," when your parents were growing up. there was a depression on and times were hard for a lot of people. These hard times made it necessary for kids to pitch in, skimp and save, share, wear it out and do without. I feel sorry for kids today who have the disadvantage of too many advantages. Challenges are fun and they often produce great individuals. • * * • DEAR ANN: A few years ago a buddy of mine kept twisting my arm to take out his cousin. I thought she was a sweet kid but I never did ask her out. He warned me that one day I'd be sorry I didn't glom on to this chick. Well, he was right. I'm 24 now and the girl is 22. She is going steady with another guy and I find myself thinking of her night and day. This may sound crazy to you because she has no idea how I feel. I've never taken her out but we've been thrown together at several parties and have spent many hours jutt talking. Shall I tweat K out and hope she doesn't marry the guy? Or shall 1 be a cad and can her for a date and take my chances? SALESMAN SAM DEAR SAM t She's not married—or even engaged. She's merely going steady. By all means call her for a date. You have nothing to lose. A good salesman knows that you have to make calls if you want to get results. * * • • DEAR ANN: Whenever relatives or friends come to our home I always offer them a cool drjnk or a cup of coffee. There's usually fresh doughnuts, cake or cookies to serve with it. When guests come with children I always give the little ones milk and a treat of some kind. When we go visiting with our children, it's a different story. Three hours can pass and they don't even offer us a glass of water. This burns me up. Shall we stop serving refreshments or come right out and ask for a cool drink or a cup of coffee? TOO TIMID MAYBE DEAR TOO TIMID: If It's any comfort to hear it from me, you're far more gracious than the people you associate with. I see nothing wrong in asking for a glass of water, or a cup of coffee in the home of friends or relatives who are too lazy or too cheap to suggest it on their own. * * * * CONFIDENTIAL TO GENIUS JOEY: It's not that simple. Sometimes when you build a better mouse trap nature breeds a smarter mouse. * * * * Are you tempted to smoke beeause the crowd does? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teen-age Smoking," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope.

Survey Shows Students Resent 'Ghosting' For Themes and Exams By EUGENE GILBERT President of the Gilbert Youth Research Co. Most teen-agers are alarmed by the recent disclosures that some New York students were doing business with organizations which, for a fee, would ghost-write a thesis or provide a substitute to take a test. During final exam time we questioned 953 teen-agers about their reaction to this practice, and about their attitude on cheating in general. This we ' now knosv: The great majority does not approve. Only 16 per aent condone such practices. "It is morally wrong to do this,'* says Cathy Fischgrund. 37, of South Bend, Ind., who sums up the feelings of the majority of the youngsters. "If an individual is not capable of fulfilling his college obligations himself, he has no business being there." And yet, while they disapprove, many of the youngsters view this kind of cheating a* a sign of the times. "This is a despicable practice," says 18-year-old Philip L. Felt of Pocatello, Idaho, "but it seems to be in accord \vith American morals at the present time." "I was shocked at first," says Cynthia Kohl. 17, of Brooklyn, N. Y., "but then I realized how much of your mark is determined by your theme and I wasn't surprised." There are many suggestions fpr a cure including elimination of examinations, use of the honor system, expulsion, better supervision, oral exsm- inations and wider-spaced seating. Cheating Widespread What surprised me was that 9 per cent of the teen-agers say they know of students who paid someone to write a theme or take a test for them, while 89 per cent say they do not. Two per cent did not answer. Some 25 per cent say they know of cases where a student got a friend to write a theme or take a test. But 76 per cent do not approve, while 19 per cent take a neutral stand. Only 3 per cent give outright approval. Twelve per cent of the teerf- agers say cheating is prevalent in their school, 27 per cent say it occurs frequently, and 57 per cent have noticed it occasionally. "Among athletes it is common," says 17-year-old Don Hoffman of Missoula, Mont. Sandra L. Mabe, 17, of Pocatello, Idaho, feels it is occasional. "When people do not study," she says, "they usually panic at examination time and feel it is their last resort." But Rosemary Schiller, 15, of Factoryville, Pa., says, "Many students depend on cheating to pass." Stress on Grades Blamed The majority, 79 per cent, say they see no excuse for cheating, 16 per cent think there are excusable reasons, and 5 per cent do not know. "When you cheat you gain nothing," says Alice M. Gioo- nik, 17, of St. Paul, Minn. "I think you learn more in the long run by getting a wrong answer." But Margie Achten, 17, also of St. Paul, excuses it on the ground that "it's rather hard not to cheat when everyone else is." When asked to explain the cause of classroom cheating, most of the youngsters agree that the desire for good marks is largely responsible. Others blame it on laziness. Janet DeGraw, 16, of Clarks Summit, Pa., feels cheating is caused by "the desire to keep up with the next guy and the fear of parental response to bad marks." "Too much emphasis is placed on grades instead of what you learn," says Karen Boswell, 18, of St. Louis, Mo. Gladys Bisaillon, 16, of Hartford, Conn., blames "too many outside activities, bad influence from friends, and mdif- terenee." Pre-Camp Exam On opening day at Girl Scout day camp site on Onized Club grounds near Godfrey Mrs. Russell Grisham, president of Alton-Wood River Girl Scout Council, who happens to be a registered nurse, gives opening-day physical examinations. Approximately 80 girls were enrolled in each camp location. Girl Scout Day Camps Open Just Blmv Away AtKendallHillandGodfrey Day camps, an institution of 20 years' standing in the Alton-Wood River Area Girl Scout Council, opened Monday at two locations—Shell Park on Kendall Hill outside Wood River and at Onized Club grounds near Godfrey. These camps, designed as daily outings, complete with picnic and study sessions, opened with 80 girls enrolled in each. According to Mrs. Robert Wheeler, chairman of the Kendall Hill camp committee, the program, arranged during the winter by an over-all camp committee headed by Mrs. Robert Dourson, consists of games, singing, craft work, nature study, "everything a regular camp offers, except overnight camping." Mrs. Alex Wright is chairman of the Alton district camp committee. At Onized Club the camp director is Mrs. Melvin T. Pennell, who is assisted by four adults and 10 older Girl Scouts. Mrs. R. J. Grt'pn- shields, who is director of the camp at Kendall Hill, said the day camp program was divided into two groups, at two locations, several years ago as a convenience. The day camp period will extend through July 1, with new groups of girls attending the second week, starting June L'7. Sessions ar<> daily, Monday through Friday, from 10-3 o'clock.

She uses her maiden name and married name together. Thus: Mrs. Wright Jones. By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor The two deepest wrinkles that most women acquire are those which run from the outer edge of the nose to the mouth. And quite often, the lips seem to become thinner and take on a compressed, stern look. This can happen any time from the early thirties on. Most women resign themselves to these wrinkles, feeling that naturally, they come with the years. This just isn't so. They are no more to be accepted than extra pounds of unsightly flesh, wattles, a lump of fat on the back of the neck or limp, brittle hair. In short, something can be done about it if you're willing to do it. What you can do is really very simple: you iron out the wrinkles in your spare time. Whenever you're reading or watching TV or knitting, puff out your cheeks and blow against them. As you iron out the wrinkles, you'll also find that the tight, compressed mouth is disappearing, too.
