Q. No matter how haw I try, 1 earn give a professional look to my covered belts. Could you advise me on the correct procedure? , A. I wUl hive to be honest with you. Nothing can replace a professionally-made belt. 1 always have mine made, as do all the dressmakers I know. Of course, If you are pressed for time or there Is some other rpason why you must make a belt, then I can go along with it. But the extra money you spend on having a belt made Is well worth the investment. A good belt makes all the difference in the world in the appearance of a garment. However, If desperate, here Is one way: (First let me say that the Instructions and illustrations on belt backing packages are extremely good.) Cut fabric on lengthwise grain; use purchased belt backing and point one end; cut fabric *i inch wider and Vi inch longer than backing. Baste under •% inch on long sides of fabric; place on wrong side of hacking pointing end; baste and edge stitch on machine; sew buckle to other end. * * * * Q. How can one with round shoulders fix patterns? The back of the neck is never right and it is very annoying because the rest of the dress fits perfectly. A. I'm delighted to answer, for I have received many letters asking this same question. Cut your pattern across full part of the back. Raise the upper section for the extra length necessary. Insert tissue paper underneath the slash and extend the center bac'< and neckline. Keep the center back line straight with the Upper Alton News Events Expert WATCH Repairs/ HARRINGTON JEWELRY Ave., East Alton grain of the fabric. Lay a dart at the neckline to' take up the amount you added at the center back. (See illustration.!

Mind Your Manners It's "better late than never" when it comes to writing any kind of thank-you note. Prompt replies are best, however. A considerate bride will limit the number of showers for her to two or three. She can always suggest some kind of party where guests do not have to bring gifts. Thoughtful brides take care id make known, in addition to china and silver preferences, some less expensive class of gifts for budget-brcnd guests.

Very careful preparation I was coasting on a mechanic's "creeper" when he left the driveway of his home and slid out into the street, striking the rear of an auto driven' by Robert Francis Boschert, of Godfrey.

In order to get to their cars the women had to wade through water that was almost knee Ideep, a member said. The meeting was postponed. WOMEN VISIT QUINCY dicated that's what he One thing seems certain: no future president is likely to go to a summit meeting without much more detailed arrangement' than preceded the meeting which blew up in Eisenhower's face. Khrushchev, of course, has been a kind of diplomatic freak. Compared with the sour, dour, introspective, aloof, isolated and nongregarious Stalin, Khrushchev is a clubby extrovert, an original, diplomatic do-it-yourselfer. So long as Khrushchev lives ;md rules, that Is likely to be his attitude. His successor, of course, may revert to the Stalin attitude That's why it is too soon to say summit conferences are now a diplomatic way of life. But, assuming the next American president will go to the summit, almost surely this will be his| procedure: ' j 1. The foreign ministers will ,have to meet first and agree not I only on what the heavyweights will discuss but .what they are apt to reach some agreement on. For the summit, conference which Khrushchev wrecked last May, there was agreement only on a few broad topics the top men should talk about. Nothing was worked out in detail. « 2.

REPORTS STRAY DOG STAYING AT HOUSE Mrs. Chester Haiwman. 2905 Brown St., reported today that ly to be held quickly alter the foreign ministers agree it might be worthwhile to hold a summit meeting at all. In the case of the ruined summit, agreement was reached in December not to hold it until May. At the time of ma agreement relations between the United States and Russia were the best they had been since the war. But those five months' delay were fatal. They left too much time lor talking—the kind of talking that threw cold water on prospects for the summit before it ever began. For example: The Western foreign ministers met and made it A FREE GIFT OFFER TO THE PARTY HOSTESS With your purchase of Bridal or Stork Shower party supplies, you may choose your tabl* centerp.aceFREE 6FCHARGE.
