Match Patterns And fabrics When Sewing Matching patterns to fabrics with crease-resistant finishes is one key to successful home sewing. Helen Zwolanek, University Of Illinois home economist, suggests a simple procedure to insure success.: First, decide which is more important fof this particular garment—the pattern style or the fabric. If the pattern style is more important, study it before buying the fabric. Decide what kind of fabric the pattern requires: a soft, flexible fabric for the soft, feminine look; a stiffer fabric for a sleek, tailored look; or a crisp fabric for a fresh, bouncy look. To illustrate, a pattern having gathers at a front shoulder yoke calls for a soft, flexible fabric that falls gracefully. A stiff, crisp fabric that bounces out creates an ugly bustline. Patterns with soft pleats or draping also require softer, flexible fabrics. Pattern styles that feature standaway collars and bouncy, gathered skirts need crisp fabrics. Sleek sheath skirts make up better with stiffer fabrics. ' If the starting point for the garment is a lovely fabric that caught your eye as you walked by, reverse the matching procedure. Before buying the pattern, experiment with the fabric. Hold a length up and see whether it hangs in soft folds or springs out and away. Gather a width with your hands and then fold in three or four pleats to determine ,what skirt style is better. Fold a small corner of the fabric over and crease it with a thumb-nail to determine whether it can be creased into sharp edges. Sharp edges on collars and cuffs and smooth seams, especially curved seams such as armscyes, are difficult to make in fabrics with crease-resistant finishes. As a general rule, patterns with clean, simple lines, such as a scoop neck and cap sleeves, or necklines with shaped bands and kimono sleeves are good pattern matches for fabrics with crease-resistant finishes.

W 9WMfs$R* to al* Itwei la M to » private er Creative Arts Are Fascinating A preschooler's plaintive, "What can I do, mommy?" is easily answered by suggesting creative art Activities. Llla Oderklrk, University of Illinois child development staff, describes two homemade creative arts—collage pasting and soap pasting. Both give children an opportunity to experiment with feel, texture, color, size and shape of materials. At the same time, the youngsters are introduced to science . as they learn to make and use materials of different kinds. They'll have fun as they work out their emotions too. Collage pasting offers endless creative possibilities. First, collect colored yarns, strings, buttons, leaves, seeds, ribbons and scraps of fabric. Odds and ends like these, plus a sheet of paper to paste them on, are the necessary supplies. As in most children's art, the process, not the product, is important. But If the child proudly presents his creation for approval and asks, "Mother, do you know what this is?" then the product is important too. Mother can avoid calling his tree an elephant by asking him to tell her about his picture. Encouragement and praise may start him on a collecting spree, and other creative.play periods will follow. The collection box that holds corks, hot- tie caps, spools, etc., will provide quiet play for convalescent as well as active children.' For the second creative art, soap pasting, make a thick paste from two cups of heavy- duty laundry detergent and water, and heat it to a stiff- meringue consistency. Color separate portions with powdered tempera or food coloring. Put mounds of the soap paste on unglazed paper and create , designs by spreading and blending them with an old toothbrush or tongue depressor. The results look like 3D finger painting. And children love making mountains that really look like mountains. College Notes Students from Alton who are on the dean's list at Illinois State Normal University include Miss Pearl J.

Shoes Join Wash-Wear Parade By ALICIA HART NBA Beauty Editor Delicate, filmy wash-and- wear fabrics have contributed ( a great deal to feminine good looks. Every woman owes a vote of gratitude to the fabrics that make it possible for her to look her best with barely a thought tossed in the direction of maintenance. And now footwear has joined the wash-and-wear brigade; not just play shoes, but smart Joking daytime shoes. There are dressy white and pastel shoes, in a new kind of patent leather that can be wiped off with a damp sponge. Pace setters among the washable fabrics are nylon mesh, straw, linen and raw silk. And there are even metallic brocades, lace crystallized in vinyl and luscious nylon velvet that can be easily cared for at home, These fabric shoes, of course, cannot be soaked in water. Instead, they should be washed off frequently with "dry" suds — the same density you would use for shampooing upholstery. Use a sponge to mix up a maximum of lather with just a small amount of water. Apply these dense suds to the shoe surface lightly with a sponge, cloth, or even a soft brush if the fabric is sturdy. Then wipe clean with a damp cloth to rinse off the suds. Try to avoid spot cleaning. You'll get better results if yo ( U wash the entire shoe. * New tanning Hgents are being used in the spring and summer leather shoes. The leather can -be wetted and dried slowly without losing its softness. The best way to use a sudsy sponge followed by damp rinsing. But most important of all, be sure before you wash your shoes that you have bought a washable fabric, Gay spring and summer shqes are always fun .to wear. And now that maintenance need no longer be a problem, you can choose pastel checks, prints or any delicious little morsel that strikes your fancy. No matter how casual or high the style you may need, sudsable footwear will keep you in step with fashion. Average Diets Lack Vitamins DKNVER, Colo., (Science Service.)- The average diet is most often low in vitamins A and C, calcium and iron, Dr. Agnes Fay Morgan, professor emeritus of the University of California, Berkeley, told delegates to the American Home Economics Association meeting here today. She said increased consumption of certain fruits, vegetables and nonfat milk solids might remedy the lack. The State Agricultural Experiment Station, studied the eating habits of more than 11'.000 persons in four pails of the United States from 1947 to 1959. The nutritional status of the American people was found to be generally good. Tea Manned for California Guest* Mrs. Earl MucMichael of Humbert road.

Ann Landers She Thinks She Needs Him For'Kisses Like Magic 9 Whttttemm And Stice Nuptial* Read DVAlt AWft fof onot in your life give some practical advice and don't be so dogfjOM stuffy. I know yon have to say certain things or you'll lose your Jab, but bear In mind I'm no kid. I'm a woman 33 yean old, normal, and I need love. Of course, Td rather be married to tht man than not—but he Aim Landers, already hat "a wife. You know the old story. She's a miserable witch who hangs on for dear life and he can't get a divorce. I have an excellent position and will tell you honestly that r have bought him several suits, a cashmere coat and other gifts. He wants to borrow $800 as a down payment on a new car. He can't sign a note, for obvious reasons. I have a close girl friend who is very smart. She tells me I'd be a fool to let him have the money. He's given me far more than $800 worth of happiness. I'd be heartsick if he broke off with me. Please remember Ann, his kiss is like magic and I need him. NORMAL NELLIE DEAR NELLIE: You need him like Custer needed more Indians. So his kiss is like magic, is it? Weil, if you let him have the $800 I predict some more magic—like a disappearing act. Love on the lend-lease plan is not love. It isn't even a reasonable facsimile, partic- ulary when you are negotiating with a married man. My old-fashioned, moth-eaten (and stuffy) advice is to quit trying to justify your immoral behavior by telling yourself you're normal. Send this jerk home on a full-time basis and find a single boy friend who is somewhat more solvent. * * * » DEAR ANN: We work in a large office. One employe, an old maid, has a habit of bringing a cake to the office every time someone has a birthday, and about twice a week when nobody has a birthday. It's quite warm in this neck of, the woods and because of the nature of the building we cannot have screens on the doors. Flies come in by the ffitttsands. The cake attracts them, of course, and we don't Wow how to tell her to stop. Any suggestions? OFFICE FORCE P.S.: Don't tell us to iM th* bosi. He likes cake. WEAR FORCE: The "old maid" sounds like a sweet git and 1 think it would be down* right cruel to ten her to stop bringing the cakes. For c dollar you can buy an aluminum cake cover. * • • * UEAB Aftlli My aunt gave me a very beautiful sweater that was too small for her. It is an expensive cashmere, one that 1 could never aford to buy myself and I Just love it. The trouble is, a few of my friends have told me mat it is too sexy to wear to summer school. It's not tight, Ann, but it has a low neckline and I must admit that it la lower than anything I have ever worn before. My friends are not the catty kind, they just want what Is best for me. If I don't wear the sweater to summer school it will just sit in the drawer as I haven't got much social life. Can you suggest something? BERNICE DEAR BERNICE: Wear a white dickey or a blouse under the sweater. It will look very nice and you will not be mistaken for the wrong kind of girl. * * * * Confidential to TRUSTED FRIEND: It's be said that three people can keep a secret —if one of thenHs dead. Your friend with the open mind has a matching mouth. Now that you know it, act accordingly. * * * * Confidential to THREE FOR ONE: Continue to make those mind bets. All you can lose Js in your mind. Forget about Joey's big "killing." I know the type. They never tell you when they lose. » * * * Are you tempted to smoke because 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. (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.) f© I960, Field Enterprises, Inc.) 1947 Class Of Alton High Plans Reunion Plans are being made for a reunion of the January, 1947, graduating class of Alton High School.

No woman can get over her subconscious jealousy of every other woman, and even your mother will give you a bum steer regardless of her good intentions." That bit of worldly advice comes from a fashion photographer. But don't take it too seriously. The man who handed it out has obviously lived so long in the world of high fashion witli its jealousy and cutthroat competition that he thinks all women are green-eyed monsters. The truth is that most women have at least one good iriend they can depend on to be brutally frank on a shopping expedition. The friend may annoy the saleswoman who is more interested in making a sale than in finding a hat or dress or suit that "does something" tor her customer. But the good friend overlooks the clerk's growing irritation as she says, "no, that color doesn't do a thing for you" or "the brim of that hat is too narrow; it makes your lace look broad" or "it's a good looking suit but it's such an extreme style I doubt that it will be a good investment." And that is the way it goes until the "just right" dress or hat or suit is finally found And then the friend says without hesitation: "that's perfect." I know that is how it goes MISS OOEBEL Fall Wedding Planned by Miss Goebel Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Goebel of Bunker Hill are announcing the engagement of their daughter.

Sonntag of 7J5 Euclid 4ve., returned last evening from a month's stay with her sister, Mrs. E. L. Cuthbertson, Sandusky, Ohio. because I have been shopping with friends for years—both as buyer and adviser. If you don't want to make a costly mistake, or let yourself bo talked into something that isn't right for you just because you are tired of shopping or a saleswoman is persistent, take a friend along. Of course, the friend you choose to help you select your clothes should have taste that is similar to your own, a real interest in clothes, and enough stamina to resist the temptation of urging you to buy something that isn't quite right just because her feet are tired, too. -(NBA).

New Cleaning Aids Adapt To Storage By KAY SHERWOOD Newspaper Enterprise Assn. The proud young bride determined to keep her new home spotless and gleaming immediately encounters this paradox: Dozens and dozens of aids to banish soil from all surfaces, to shine, and to polish are ready for her choosing but there's no place to put them. The .cleaning closet of 'another era has shrunk to the back of the basement door, a narrow cabinet or a corner in the utility room. Trying to stow vacuum cleaners and attachments out of sight in an apartment can be more provoking than burning the proverbial biscuits. ' In many of the model homes in subdivisions I've visited, the builder has left the storage of housekeeping supplies to your imagination. It's darn hard to imagine extra floor space. One answer to the dilemma is in new aids which perform well and lend themselves to compact storage. One new 7-pound appliance combines a handle with a powerful motor and two bases, one a vacuum cleaning attachment, the other a floor scrubber. The bases latch to the motor unit firmly and quickly. The floor scrubber has, under its sleek plastic case, a container for a clean, low-sudsing detergent solution and a container for the soiled water. A toe lever releases the cleaning solution directly on the floor. After a nylon-bristled brush has scrubbed the area, you switch on the motor and soiled water is vacuumed up. The vacuum cleaning base cleans rugs and dusts floors. In trying the device around my home, 1 found it does a good job and is light enough to carry anywhere. You can buy one base or both and the total cost is surprisingly low. Recommended storage for all three pieces is to hang— by way of sturdy rings— on hooks. To convert the back of the door into a cleaning closet, manufacturers have come up with several devices. One is a plastic-covered wire with storage bins for small bottles, cans or jars, and screw hooks for dustpan brushes and similar items. Heavy-duty clear vinyl plastic makes another cleaning aid holder. This door caddy has eight pockets for cleaners and dusters and snap-open loops to hold taller brooms or mops. Deciding which of the many cleaners and polishers to use is apt to be a matter of trial and error. Sometimes, in my experience, the newest, highly touted all-purpose cleaner is not as good as the familiar old stand-by and may be much harder on the hands or on the surface it's supposed to clean. On the other hand, you must not expect specialised products In Services At Graf ton Residing in the Pohlman Apartments at Orafton, are Mr. and Mrs. Roland Ruto, who were married Saturday morning, at 9:30 o'clock in St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Orafton. Mn. Rulo is the former Miss Shirley Faye Hotz, daughter of Mrs. Oer- aldine Hotz of Independence, Mo. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Rollo Rulo of Orafton. The Rev. Michael Sheeny officiated at the ceremony, which was followed by a reception in the home of the bride's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Burton. Attending the couple were the bride's sister, Miss Carol Hotz, and the bridegroom's brother, Joseph Rulo. Mrs. Phillip Hopely played organ selections. The bride's gown, worn with a bolero jacket, was made of lace and nylon sheer over taffeta with full skirt of alternating lace and sheer tiers.' A queen's crown of pearls and sequins held her illusion veil. Her Dowers were carnations on a prayer book. Miss Carol Hotz wore a yellow organza gown with ruffled skirt, a headband of white carnations, and carried a nosegay of feathered carnations. Both Mr. and Mrs. Hotz attended Jersey Community High School. Mr. Hotz is employed by Laclede Steel Co. Doctor B? jMeph D.

C. Home making Hints Wear clean canvas gloves when working on unfinished woodwork. Prevents staining from perspiration. Light coating of paste wax on garden tools helps prevent rust and dirt sticks less easily. If cookie and cracker boxes soon lose their wrappers in your house, do this: cut a hole in each box top and tapn over it a piece of transparent wrapping material. to do all-purpose duty. The creamy wax cleaners that keep kitchen appliances so shining aren't formulated for furniture. When storage space is tight, it may be smarter to buy special cleaning aids in small quantities. They last long enough and the economy of buying largo amounts may be outweighed by the inconvenience of storing bulky containers. A mother in Peoria, m. ( writes as follows. "My 12-year- old son has had several attack* of abdominal pain, mostly in the right kwer part of Mi abdomen. Sometimes these painful attacks are accompanied by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, but sometimes there may be no diarrhea or It may come a day or two later. A few weeks ago when he had his last Attack, I called our family doctor and he examined him and said it wasn't appendicitis. What I want to know is this: Is there any way that I can tell by myself, without calling the doctor, whether it is acute appendicitis or not?" * * ' • * I wish I could tell this mother in a few moments how to make a diagnosis of acute ap- pendictis. But I can't. Although appendicitis is one of the most common of acute abdominal conditions, it Is often very difficult to make the diagnosis accurately. Even the most skillful surgeons have, on occasion, been fooled by the acute appendix. In the average case, the pain of acute appendicitis does not start violently or severely. The pain of kidney stone, gall stones, or acute perforation of an ulcer is far more severe. To repeat: acute appendicitis does not ordinarily begin as a sharp or stabbing abdominal pain. Starts High and Shifts Rather, it starts high in the abdomen, a little under the breastbone, as an ache and then as a pain which goes on and on for several hours without letup. Then, sometimes after a little pause, the pain shifts in its location to-the lower part of the abdomen on the.right side. The pain becomes more intense, more persistent, and it is at this point that the physician is often called to provide the patient with some relief. If the doctor is not called at this time, the pain may (rarely!) subside but, more likely, the appendix may burst and the contents of the inflamed appendix spread through the entire abdominal cavity. This causes a condition known as peritonitis which is even more painful, leading to fever, nausea, and vomiting. Most often, if no medical or surgical care is provided at this time, the patient may go on to die. This sequence of events is what may happen in the average case, but as in so many other medical matters, there are so few average cases. As Dr. John Jewers, M.B., of the Weymouth and District Hospital in England, recently pointed out, the "abnormal appendix" can cause a great deal of confusion. In some cases, for example, the appendix lies under the large bowel on the right and its tip points upward to the right shoulder. In such cases, the pain may remain in the pit of the stomach or high up on the right side and never move down to the lower part of the abdomen. The pulse rate and the temperature may even remain normal and the patient may have no vomiting. In other cases, the appeti- dix may lie closer to the pelvis or may point posteriorly toward the back of the abdominal cavity. When this happens, the onset of symptoms is often sudden, accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea. This type of inflamed appendix is most common among young children and young adults. Not only must a careful abdominal examination be made but urine tests are necessary to rule out kidney disease. Blood tests must be performed because the white cells usually increase in appendicitis.

The skilled surgeon must not only know how to remove the appendix successfully but must have a broad background* in medicine so as to make an accurate diagnosis. A careful history and thorough examination are necessary. Rectal examination is also essential and, whenever possible, blood count and urine examinations should be made. In doubtful cases, it may be advisable to have the patient hi the hospital for observation ufr til a proper decision can be reached. The best advice, then, that we can give our mother in Peoria is not to "play doctor." It is altogether too hazardous a game and the life of her son is at stake. If her boy has pain, let her call her doctor. What is most important: Never, never, treat abdominal pain with laxatives! C I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune, Inc.

Introduce New Food Gradually To Children URBANA—Introducing new foods to a 3- or 4-year-old this summer needn't be the crisis that many parents make it. But it does take patience and understanding, says Marian Tanner, dietitian at the University of Illinois child development laboratory. Miss Tanner points out that most young children regard all food as their friend until some outside influence suggests otherwise. Therefore, it behooves parents to introduce new foods gradually and with a positive attitude. Showing obvious concern by saying, "Do you like it?" may be just asking for a "No!" Furthermore, forcing the young child to eat usually doesn't help. Generally the average child will need little encouragement to try new foods. To help get acquainted with new colors, textures and smells, some children enjoy feeling foods. But adult guidance is needed to curb the children's playing with foods.
