Re-elected to office were Or. Frank Boals, president; Dr. William Mlddteton, vice president: Mrs. Hugh Harris, treasurer; and Mrs. J. Russell Dale, secretary. Following establishment of Hs Alton center, 9IU has given ,,*'^^y^y**^^f - i «A • v a | M. TnsTwrou assistance ootn n- rtanclally and in personnel phase to the orchestra, and has had an agreement regarding its cooperation with the Chorophonic Choir directed by a university staff member, Dr. Herrold Headley. " It was pointed out during the board's discussion that the board needed to take a long look at future relations and future plans of the university, since gradual shifting of the center of its operations to the Edwardsville campus could have an effect on its relations with the orchestra. Another factor in this relationship, it was pointed out, is the already known plan for the university to have its own campus orchestra. The board was informed by a university spokesman at the meeting that members of the campus orchestra could be expected to continue available for the Civic Orchestra, and no competitive element would arise. Plans Made For Reunion Of 1951 Class Plans were made for the reunion of the 1951 class of East Alton-Wood River %lum- nl at a meeting at the home of Mrs. Raymond Parker (Jeanine Edwards), 131 Reno St.. Rosewood Heights, Wednesday evening. The reunion will be in the form of a dinner dance to be held June 17, 1961 in the Wood River Moose Home. The orchestra of Roger' Schwan, a member of the class, will play. William , Perrin, decoration chairman, gave an estimate of the cost of decorations. Money collected for the reunion was given to Mrs. Werner Frazier. Mrs. Harold Balster (Peggy Sawyer) will prepare cards to be sent to members, of the class. The committee in charge of contacting the 138 members of the class is composed of Mrs. Kenneth Gimmy (Marcella Forrest), Mrs. James Smith (Marlene Stahlheber), Mrs. Don Colclasure (Mary Pat Harvy), Mrs. John McCune (Norma Meyers), Mrs. Robert Gatrell (Alma Kistner), Mrs. Harold Arnold (June Alexander), and Mrs. Parker.

SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scolt What to wear, and when to wear it?—that is the question. One small ornament, though handsome, can make or break you if it is worn at the wrong time. * * * • Q. Please tell me if it is improper to wear artificial flowers and a gold belt on white before .5 o'clock? I am so glad to have someone to whom I can write for advice. —Mrs. C. W. A. There is no reason why you cannot wear artificial flowers before 5 o'clock. Some of the most beautiful hate are made of artificial flowers and certainly a pretty flower on a dress or suit lapel is not out of order. However, I cannot go along with the gold belt, on white or any other color, before evening hours. * * * * Q. Can you tell me how to apply horsehair braid to the bottom of a skirt? The top pait or edge is always too wide for the skirt and I don't know how to take it in.—Mrs. G.M. A. Sew the braid to the low- College Notes Glenn W. Young, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn W. Young Sr , 1917 Main St., was awarded a diploma at Indiana Technical College in Fort Wayne, this month.

Th* group will continue to matt on the second and fourth Wednesdays t* each maitb. er edge of the skirt, on right side of fabric. Overlap ends about 2 inches. Turn braid to wrong side of garment. Basle along the lower edge. Shape upper edge by drawing a thread in the braid. This will take in the fullness you referred to. Secure the other end of the thread so that it will not be pulled through the braid. Blind hem braid to skirt. (See illustration). • » * * Q. I have trouble when making a dress to make it fit in the waistline. My patterns fit my bust and hips and are perfect when the dress is finished, but the waist is always too large. What should i do? Mrs. D.B. A In order to make the waistline smaller, you must adjust both the blouse and skin pattern. Remove excess amount from front as well as back. Count the number of darts and divide the amount to be taken in, by the number of darts. Increase the size of each dart by this amount. However, this amount should not be more than one-quarter inch. If the pattern must still be made smaller, remove some of the excess from, the .side seam. Taper the line carefully • and follow the contour of the side seam. Miss Scott is happy to help Seams to Me readers with their sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobe and fashion. However, because so many are seeking her assistance, Miss Scott asks readers to please limit their letters to one question. Send your question to Patricia Scott in care of the Alton Telegraph, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope for reply. (O I960, Field Enterprises. Inc.) Moore-Curtis Nuptials Read In Oklahoma •^ Pvt. and Mrs. Neal Kendall Moore are residing in Fort Sill, Okla. following their marriage there at 6 o'clock Saturday evening. The bride is the former Miss Paula Diane Curtis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Curtis of Glendale Gardens, East Alton. Pvt. Moore is the son of Rev. and Mrs. Kenneth Moore of East Alton. The ceremony was performed in the new Brigade Chapel in Fort Sill, and a wedding dinner was served in the Wilders Steak House, Lawton, Okla. Attending the couple were the bride's cousin, Miss Sally Jeffers of Pittsfield, 111., and Pvt. Jerry Knight. The bride's floor length gown was fashioned of Chantilly lace and tulle, and featured a lace overskirt appliqued with clusters of pearls and sequins, extending into a chapel length train. A queen's crown with side clips held her fingertip veil, and she carried white roses and foliage. The couple will remain in Oklahoma until Pvt. Moore leaves for Germany, at which time his wife will return to the home of her parents for a month's stay. She will then join her husband overseas. Bridge Luncheon For Mrs. Vann Mrs. Herbert D.

Ann Landers Their Sloppy Co-Worker Is Eyesore in the Office DBAR AMrt We ire a group whoever Is on the otter end. of girls who work in R .large of the Itfte. jteviraf tlfnes he Chicago loop office, There it one among it* who defies description. She is to unkempt tand sloppy that Just cannot | believe a ea- I reer girl would |go around like [this. The woman (doesn't wear I stockings from (April through September. Ann LafMfer*. When it rains the has mud on her leg* for weeks at a time. Her clothes look as if they were picked up off the closet floor. Her hair is a tangled mess of knots and snarls. She's an eyesore In our lovely office and we don't know what to do about it. There's no firing her because she has a great deal of seniority and her work is pretty fair. What shall we do? CO-WORKERS DEAR CO-WORKERS: The most mature and gentle woman in the office should have a heart-to-heart talk with the "eyesore" and lay it on the line in unmistakable language. * * * * DEAR ANN: I've failed completely to get through to my husband. Maybe if you print this letter it will do some good. About a year ago we hired a free-lance contractor to make some improvements on our home. The work was third- rate and most of the time the hired men didn't show up so the contractor came himself. He knew less than the morons he sent as "skilled workers." After three months of putting up with amateur workmansfiip my husband literally threw him out of the house and hired a first-rate contractor to redo the botched job and finish the place. Unfortunately, we had paid the first man a chunk of money in advance, which was like throwing it in the sewer. i My husband can't get over his anger at being taken in by a cheap crook. It has made him almost crazy. He's determined to get even by phoning this man at his home at all hours of the day and night —shrieking and cursing at .fan yelled at the man's wife and kids. I keep telling him hto be- hftvlor l» cWMish and it to not their fault. He «ays he doesn't give a darn, the whole family is going to suffer. Please, Ann, say something. OWING UP .DEAR OlVtlfO: Your husband's behavior is more than childish—it's irrational. The people he phones have written him off as a loon. He's not hurting them he's hurting himself. Save your pipes and send him to a head doctor where he can articulate his feelings of hate and get this poison out of his system. * * • • DEAR ANN: You hear from many wives who cry all over themselves because their husbands run around. Here's a new twist for your column. I think it would do a lot of these cheating husbands good to know that all wives are not as dumb, as they took. It might also be good for the "other woman" to know that a cheater is usually a liar, as well. I'm married to a handsome heel who has made a hobby .of collecting women for the past 15 years. The older the dirty dog gets, the more attractive he becomes. Women go crazy over him and leave their husbands. Then he gets scared and comes running home to me, I've prayed a dozen times that the next dizzy dame who gets mixed up with him will keep him—but no such luck. He comes crawling back like a naughty puppy. I could live without him very well, but apparently he can't live without me.

Our young people say the problem has been greatly exaggerated, and they're up to arms about it. Where gangs do exist, teen* agers say stricter' discipline and punishment is the solution. Of nearly 1,000 interviewed across the country, seven-eighth agreed that their schools, whether in big cities or small towns, had no gang problem. Twelve per cent of the young people did report gangs in thefr schools. They blamed the teen-age toughs for hot rod- ding, gang warfare, disobedience in class and giving the school a bad name. Suggested remedies: tougher discipline and punishment. One dissenter on this was Ed Carver, 17, of Crawfordsville, Ind., who says, "They aren't real bad, just rowdy." Most young people — 63 p*>r cent—say their schools have no rules against dress associated with gangs, such as leather jackets and long haircuts. Teeners divide on the value of such school controls, 51 per cent saying they neither help nor harm the gangs. Some 36 per cent feel such rules are good while 13 per cent say they accomplish nothing. We found that 41 per cent of the teen-agers have social clubs such as fraternities and sororities in their schools while . 56 per cent do not. Boys are more likely than girls to be "joiners." Where there are such clubs, 62 per cent of the boys and only 36 per cent of the girls are 1 members. »„, Clubs Called Helpful Only 15 per cent of the young people fee] social clubs harm students. These mentioned such things as "promoting snobbery" 'and "cutting down individual independence.^; Thirty-four per cent of the boys and girls think clubs are helpful in social life. The majority—51 pet cent—do not consider them either helpful or harmful. We found that 57 per cent of the teen-agers believe social clubs could be more helpful if they were effectively controlled through faculty advisers, school approved functions and scholarship standards. Of the 19 per cent who disagreed, Roberta Footlick 16, of New Orleans, says that even with school control, the clubs "would still be discriminating." The young people who dp belong to clubs say most of them—55 per cent—do some charity work. This includes visiting hospitals, old people and crippled children, orphanages, making up Christmas baskets and raising money for charity. In talking to teen-agers, we found them angry about reports of juvenile delinquency. They don't like being linked with what they consider a handful of misdirected youths. Salli Nixon, 15, of Crawfordsville, Ind., put it this way: "Gangs are usually the ones connected with juvenile delinquency and some adults feel they represent all teen- agers. The young people were outspoken in criticizing gangs, saying they lead to the dangerous power of mob rule which results from th£ feeling of safety in numbers. Cutoff Point ' Judith Davis, 18, of Matoaca, Va., says, "Gangs are simply a way for boys with warped minds to pool their bad ways and "thoughts." Teeners agreed with teachers who suggested to us recently that more discipline and stiffer punishment are the best ways to combat gangs. Norman Bader, 17, of New York City, has a stern proposal: "Reform schools." But many young people supported a program of "greater understanding and love" as proposed by Phyllis Fox, 15, of New York City. "If they have more fun at home," says Laraine Schulz, 17, of LeMars, Iowa, "they wouldn't want to be on the streets as much." We found some disagreement on the influence of sloppy dress on gang behavior. James N. Grenhart, 17, of Hartford, Conn., says, "Sloppy dressing tends to sloppy and bad morals." But Pete Hasek, 15, of Lynchburg, Va., says: "A lot of people who dress like hoods aren't hoods, whereas other people with short, haircuts and good clothes get in- a lot of trouble." In the matter of social clubs, many young people feel they give students practical experience in an organization, encourage scholarship and promote group participation. The minority view was expressed by Kathleen Daniels, 17, of St. Paul, who says, "Society shouldn't be divided into cliques." Piano Teachers 9 ^ The Mature Parent Workshop Held In St. Louis MISS FORD Engagement Announced In Medora Mr. and Mrs. Ferris Ford of Medora are announcing the engagement of their eldest daughter, Melva Yvonne, to Norman Ayres, son of Mr. and Mrs. Immanul Ayres of Medora .

Attend Meeting Attending the meeting of the National Committee on Racial Equality Wednesday evening in the Roosevelt Hotel, St. Louis, were Miss Mary Pat Edmundson' and Mrs. Grace Favors. The women were ac« companied by Miss Norma Jean Gowens and Miss Ruth B. Jackson, members of the Alton Youth Conference. The meeting marked the opening of the four-day national convention of CORE, in the hotel. Alton area members of the • National Guild of Piano Teachers, attended a piano teachers' workshop in St. Louis on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The first session was held in the Ambassador-Kingsway Hotel, and the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions in the B'Nai El Temple. Attending from this area were Mrs. Austin Windsor, guild chairman, Mrs. Jackson Blaisdell, Mrs. Harold W. Chamberlain, Mrs. Ed Burgoyne, Mrs. Clare Pettengill, Mrs. Max Thompson and Mrs. Jerome Breitweiser. i Conducting tire workshops were Mark Nevih, George Anson and Arthur Zepp, composers, arrangers and editors. Each presented a program, in his particular style and sphere of interest. Prior to the St. Louis meet- Ings, Mrs. Pettengill and Mrs. Thompson had attended the Podolsky Workshop, held in Quincy, 111.

When he learned that his owner planned to turn him into pork chops and bacon, he squealed and wept. His friend Charlotte, the spider who lived over the barn door, was moved by his plight. All night with her spinnerets she labored to create the first of the miracles that were to save his life from murder-bent humans. In the early morning when her web was still aspar- kle with dewdrops, the farm folk came out into the barnyard to read the message she had woven into its center. The message said "SOME PIG." She is the heroine of E. B. White's "Charlotte's Web," the only modern children's classic I know about. It's the only one I know about because it's the only modern book the children I know talk to me about. Or more properly "sputter" to me about. They are generally so incoherent with remembered delight in it that they sound like this: "Shut up, let's me tell her... No, 'Some Pig' wasn't the second message... Oh. you never get anything straight.... Will you shut up? ... let me tell.... let me tell... ." Thus, when some grownup promoters of juvenile books offered to produce a writer of them for me to interview, I said, "E. B. White, please." And how E. B. White explained his secret was this: "My aim in writing is to instruct myself for I feel I am most in need of it. I also write to amuse myself for I am in need of that, too. Many books fail because the author sets about trying to instruct •children. He thinks of himself as addressing them from an elevation." Naturally then, "Charlotte's Webb" contains no social mqs- sage, no sneaked-in information on the problems of forest conservation, missile manufacture, Peru's economy. Its author doesn't use his book to instruct in the guise ,of telling a story. He just wrote a story about a pig who didn't get killed because animal slaughter makes him sad, just as Hans Christian Andersen wrote one called "The Fir Tree" because the sight of dying Christmas trees in gutters made him sad. And White is able therefore to com- Exercise Care \ In Choosing Tanning Lotion In choosing your suntan lotion this summer, keep this in mind: many women are allergic to suntan lotions. But you may be allergic to one brand and not another. If, you are allergic to a brand, you'll break out fast in a red, itchy rash. See your doctor, of course. And from then on, be. cautious about greasing yourself generously from head to foot. Undoubtedly, the right sun lotion for you is on the market. Experiment cautiously in finding it. Use a small amount on a tiny area of skin to discover your reaction.—NEA. Mind Your Manners .

Yes, this is a tip for a gift book for young readers. I don't likp to think of children denied the permanent possession of "Charlotte's Web."— NEA.
