DEAR ANN: My problem has gotten me to the point where I think I will end up in a mental hospital if something isn't done. The question is—what can 1 do? My husband's parents and my parents hate each other like poison. ' Of course I'm inclined to side with my folks, and Frank sides [with his. When holidays come I wish 1 could crawl in a hole and stay there. Frank insists Ann Landers, we spend every holiday with his folks because "they are older and probably won't live as long as my folks." His folks are in their 50's. Mine are in their 40's. Our two little boys are the only grandchildren on either side. My in-laws spoil the kids something terrible. They give them candy and cake when I say '"no" and they let them ' stay up till midnight. My husband says his folks love the kids more than my folks because they buy them expensive gifts. My folks hav-i en't got the money, and it makes me feel just awful when he says such things. Please, tell me what to do. I'm going to pieces, LOLLY DKAR LOLLY: You need outside help. 1 suggest a frank talk with your clergyman. He should call on both sets of parents (individually, of course) and explain that they are ruining your marriage. Holidays should be shared. Alternate between the two. And I respectfully suggest that you and your husband unwind emotionally from both sets of parents and become more independent. * * * * DKAR ANN: I am an unmarried, attractive, eligible girl. I'm not man-hungry, since 1 enjoy my career and have many outside interests. I see no reason to be ashamed of the title "Miss" but thoughtless clods make a point of it by saying, "How come you aren't married yet?" Invariably It's a single guy who poses the question. I'd be eternally grateful if you could come up with a good answer that would squelch them up once and for all. Thank you. MISS WHO DOESN'T MISS MUCH. IJfcAR MISS: Why not say, "I'm still unmarried because 1 haven't found a guy who deserves to be as happy as I can make him." It's pretty cocky, but it oughta work. * * * • DEAR ANN: My husband Is a wonderful man but he does have a few peculiarities. One of them is a love for maps. He brought home an enormous map of the world and hung it on the wall in the living room. It isn't anything special, it's just a plain everyday map. When friends come in they ask why the map is there. He says, "Because I want it there." Then they ask if we are planning a trip and he curtly tells them that we are not. I don't want to make a big issue of it but that map is causing a lot of comment among our friends and I personally think it ruins the looks of our living room. He says it's a nice conversation piece. I agree that it's a conversation piece, but I don't care for the con- versatioVi. What do you suggest? SMALL VOICE DKAR SMALL: If your husband likes plain ordinary maps, and wants to hang one in his living room, what's wrong with that? If you have children, they're bound to learn some geography. Enjoy the map while there's still a world. * » * * To learn .the booby-traps of teen-age drinking, write for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.)

These are colors which make gray hair look drab. Stay with vibrant pastels and clear colors and use clear, natural harmonizing make-up. Pastel shoes which are slightly soiled are never pretty So when you buy pastel shoes, ask about the cleaning method. Some of them can he "washed" with dry If you were giving a party, would you consider serving a cake without icing and all the trimmings? I doubt it very much, for no matter how delicious the cake itself might be, it would look prettv unappetizing without any adornment. So. too, the female of the species. A party is a time f or festivity, and the hostess should shine both in personality and in appearance when entertaining guests. I don't know of a more refreshing sight than to arrive at a part; and tp find the lady of the house looking not only well- groomed and chic, but bright and full of gaiety and with a delicate little what-not tied around her waist. 1 won't call it an apron. ' because it is meant to be decorative rather than functional. This little what-not, a triple ripple of fragile net, can be made in two ways—completely of net with binding trim, or with an all-in-one waistband and tie of ribbon. Materials needed: "i yard nylon net 72 inches wide; 9's yards pima bias tape; 1 beautiful artificial flower to match bias tape. Cut apron according to diagram. Bind outside edges starting and ending at top of wlit. The binder machine attachment is marvelous for this and wilj save you a great deal of time. Fdd each tie in half and seam sides and one end. Turjj •inside out and press. Join oir* cles A, B, and C together at waistline. Join wrong side of net tiers to right side of waistband, keeping edges ev»n- Bind remaining free sides' of waistband. Fold waist ban* to troni. slip in tiers at sides and lop stiich waistband to ties and apron on net clave to binding. For all-in-one ribbon waistband tie: you'll need 94 inches of I*? inch wide grosgrain or velvet ribbon. Cut one piece 72 inches long for waistband- tie. Cut another piece 22 inches lone 'or facing of the waistband part. Stitch facing to one edge of ribbon, right sides together. Turn and press. Join wrong side of net tiers to wrong side of waistband facing. Now, outer "part will slip oxer' the right side of net at bottom edge. Top stitch to apron. Now that the icing is on the cake, top it off with your flower at the waist. Miss Scott is happy to help Seams to Me readers with their sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobe and fashions.

Senior Citizens Need Decor Suited to Them URBAN A — Decorate homes for senior citizens with clear, bright colors and simple, distinct patterns. Robbie Blakemore. University of Illinois home furnishings staff, says fading eyesight can distinguish sharp light and dark contrasts most easily and quickly. So a home decorated in this manner is stater than one using muted colors. A rug's beginning and end, the jutting outline of the fireplace and a chair's location are easier to see when there's strong contrast. Another tip is to con«'der the proper height of furniture and built-ins for comfort and ease. ' Chairs '-and couches should be high-crowned and firm so that oldsters can pull themselves up and out. They will appreciate a fireplace that can be tended without stooping or bending. Higher-than-usual coffee tables will be easier for them to reach, easier to see, and consequently safer. . Drawers and cupboards that can be opened without bending and stooping will insure more comfortable and safer living.

Yet every summer women by the thousands squee/.e themselves into inadequate bathing suits, shorts, tight toreador pants and strapless sun dresses which reveal" vast rolls of billowing flesh. The worst offenders are mature women but teen-a>;ers aren't far behind them. They appear on beaches and, w'orse. on the street in such (fet-ups They don't seem conscious of the fact that not only are they displaying poor taste, they look ludicrous. If you are overweight and your figure is poor, pay the penalty. Stay out of shorts of 'any kind. Stay away from strapless dresses. Be sure that your swim suit is not only your correct si/.e but that it is modestly cut and has a skirt. Don't be as concerned about what "they" are wearing as you are about the kind of figure you cut in public. Take a good, long, honest look at yourself in the mirror and decide what you can or <annot wear to be in good taste. Beauty Tips A back brush is particularly valuable in summertime. A gentle scrubbing with firm bristles and plenty of sudsy lather removes aJI dead surface skin from those hard-to- reach areas that are exposed in the sun dress and swlmsuit. One of the pleasantest remedies tor sore sunburn—and one recommended by the medical profession—is a soak in a cool tubful of water with a half- pound of soda bicarbonate added. Don't scrub, however. The friction will cause irritation. riiiS bearer. Frank Biesk was best man for his brother. Another brother. Raymond Biesk, was groomsman with Gene Sellier.
