But, mayhe I can twist your arm Into making just one last beach item. You can make It In no time at all! This little terrycloth poncho is no simple to make and is strictly a fun and attention getter. Co-ordinate the colors of the terry and bias trim with your different bathing suit* and you'll look cute as a button. All you need is 1 yard of 36" wide terrycloth: 20 yards single fold bias tape; mercerized cotton thread to match tape. (Tape may be all in one color, but to. give your poncho a real fun look, try three colors, iis» ing 10 yards for one color and Ann Landert Grandma's Luck Can't Hold Out Much Longer You're the Doctor 5 yards each for the other two.) Fold the terrycloth in half. On the fold, at mid-point, place a tape measure where it reads 18 inches. Use the tape as a compass, inserting a pencil point through the metal perforation at the end. With the tape held firmly in place, draw a semi-circle. Again, place tape oji the fold at mid-point, this time measuring a radius of 3 inches. Once again, draw a semi-circle. Cut along both lines through two thicknesses of fabric. You'll have a terrycloth circle, 36 inches in diameter with a neck opening in the center. Try on poncho and if the neck is too small, trim % of an inch to enlarge it. Bind the neck opening and the lower edge of poncho with the bias tape. Place the first row of tape two inches from the neck and cut a strip long enough to go around. Place the last row approximately two inches from the lower edge and cut strip long enough to go around. Place the three remaining rows at intervals' between the top and bottom rows. Pin strips to fabric and stitch in place. With tape you have left over, make some small bows and tack on front of poncho anyplace you wish. If you like, you can tack the front and back together at arm point. Do this by wearing poncho, then taking a few close stitches where a sleeve would normally be and where it is mo'st comfortable. The purpose of this is to keep poncho from sliding around as you move. When you choose your colors, try bright ones for the tape against a soft pastel or white terrycloth. If you co-ordinate your colors well, you'll find that the poncho can be worn with any of your many bathing suits. DKAft AIM LAftOtiftS! WP are terribly concerned about Grandma. She is 83 years old, in good health, and her mind is sharp as a tack. This woman has an amazing amount of energy and she keeps » schedule that would put a much younger woman to shame. The trouble is her eyesight is failing fast and she drives like a hot-rodder. We all live in fear that she'll hit someone or get into a bad accident. Whenever we plead with her to drive rriore carefully or let someone else take* the wheel she says-, "Don't worry about me, I've been driving for 40 years." She has, it's trup, but this doesn't make her a good driver. Grandma has had half Ann Lander*, a dozen minor accidents since the first of the year and her astonishing luck can't hold out much longer. Please suggest something. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: Insist on ac'companying Grandma to the eye-doctor for a check-up, due in the doctor in advance about Grandma's driving, and ask him to tell her that she cannot drive any longer. Explain to him that this may be a matter of life and death not only for her, but for innocent pede&trians and other motorists. * * » • DEAR ANN LANDERS: What's so smart or special about being "The Other Woman"? Here is a practical evaluation by one who has lived the role not once, but twice. A wife has security, respectability, legal rights and she can be a mother. The Other Woman's life is built on flowing waters and shifting sand. If her status is discovered, she's considered "a loose, predatory female" (or worse). She has no legal-rights, and of course motherhood is out. In addition to this, she must sneak around using side doois and back alleys. This may be exciting for an 18-year-old, but to a mature woman it's degrading. A wife can have moods, a toothache, or she can stay in bed till noon with a hangover. The Other Woman is usually a working girl and nobody can cover up for her. She'd better be at her desk the next morning, no matter what kind of a night she had. The ageold pastime of discussing your man (the most fun women have) Is out for her. What could she tell? Nine out of ten Other Women know deep in their hearts they'll never get that precious wedding band out of a guy who has a wife. She's a piece of property, acquired as a lilt- ury, and will surely be disposed of when she becomes a nuisance.

Mr. andMrs.H.C.Jones Home From Hawaii Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton C. Jones of 47 Marietta PI. arrived by plane Tuesday from Honolulu, Hawaii. Mr. Jones was a speaker at the convention of the American- Collectors Association. His topic was: "Spending Your Tux Dollar Wisely". College Notes Miss Mary Connell of 1115 Diamond St. is doing graduate work at the University of Colorado this summer. She is on the faculty of Roxana Junior High School. Miss Judith Peters, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin C. Peter*, 32 Frontenac PI,, has been accepted for the fall semester at Depauw University, Greencastle, Jnd. BY KAY SHERWOOD Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Without stepping out of the house, the homemaker can easily engulf herself and her family in a smorgasbord of cultural interests: reading the classics, studying art masterpieces, buying reproductions of fine sculpture, listening to poetry and on and on. All it takes is a weakness for filling out coupons to take advantage of a marvelous bargain and a hunch that you're in a rut and your horizons need broadening. As a veteran filler-in-of-coupons and a charter subscriber to more ventures than I care to admit, I can attest to two great hitches in this pursuit of knowledge: limited time and shelf space. Publications and study lessons pile up while housework must be finished, club meetings attended and children escorted to various enterprises. Shelves become crowded and cultural source material is scattered to the four corners of the house. Ways and means to improve the situation might be profitably studied now, during the summer recess from many organized activities. A tough-minded review of what you've signed for usually will result in cutting out items which simply don't enthrall you. Few homes built today boast a library where, ideally, reading, writing and learned discussions can be undertaken in the proper atmosphere. But most of us could salvage a quiet corner which could be set aside for such endeavors and where source material in books, prints, and writing equipment can be grouped for best use. Several attractive solutions for increasing shelf space may be considered. Shelves supported by brackets hooked to wood wall strips are available in many different styles and prices. They are adaptable, allowing for additional shelving and changing location. In rented homes where the "no nails" rule holds, open shelf units on free - standing supports can be backed up to the walls. In my little cubicle which passes as a "study," the walls were in poor condition so I had them paneled with finished hardboard panels joined by matching metal lock strips. All kinds of accessories including shelf brackets can be locked into the slots on the strips and shelves added where and when they're needed. A quiet study corner should include a desk or at least a table. If you're in the market for a desk you will find a wonderful selection. In the past year desks in many styles have been designed especially for homes. Although sizes vary, there are some generously large ones with file- drawer facilities which do not took like refugees from an office supply store. One is a polished teak pedestal desk in a Danish design which la nearly five feet long but proportioned gracefully with a book shelf cut into the back and file- size drawers in the front, set on rounded, tapered legs. Add a comfortable chair and ottoman or a chaise lounge. Put your feet up and relax while you learn. Good lighting is important. Spotlighting for desk and chair, plus general lighting from strip or valance lights, if you want to highlight pictures or sculptures, would be appropriate. Beauty Tips If your back hairline seems to be lengthened by * low, scraggly line of dark fuzz when you wear your hair in a chignon, bleach it to skin-color lightness. It will then look like a downy fuzz instead of hair whose dark shadows tend to shorten the length of your neck. FOR Mothers everywhere win be pleased to know that hospitals, particularly operating rooms, have become geared to the special needs of small fry so that operations, nowadays, do not have the dreadful connotations that they once had. Every mother can be reassured that when her child goes into an operating room — for no matter how trivial or how serious an operation — her baby will not be met by a white-masked man or a white* masked woman who will abruptly slap an ether cone over the child's face while one or two assistants holds the squirming, crying, frightened child on the operating table. Doctors and nurses are doing their part to make surgery a pleasant experience or, at least, a less terrifying one. Parents, too, must do their share to make the experience less of an ordeal for their young ones. It Is the parents' job to get Junior ready for his operation long before he gets to the operating room. This can be done in several ways. The first rule that parents must heed Is that they must not fool or deceive the child. To tell Junior that he is going to a movie or 1o visit with Uncle Harry and then lead him off to an operating room is a mean form of deception which may make surgery become a nightmare that will remain in the child's conscious or unconscious mind even into adult life. Let's Be Honest As parents, then, let's be honest with our children so that they will be honest with themselves and with others. If Junior needs an operation, explain it to him and provide him with the reassurance that he can get only from the parents that he loves and* trust* Never let an operation break that bond and trust that exist between the child and his parents. If faith is present, a heai- thy "build-up" for surgery can be then begun. The simplest method is to "play operation." This can be started from three to six days before the child enters the hospital. Mother can be the nurse. Junior can make believe he is the patient. Even a young child can be encouraged to help pack his own suitcase. In playing "Operation," it is will to encourage the child to use a blindfold or a mask of some sort. Such simple devices simulate the actual atmosphere of an operation room so that when a blindfold is actually placed on the child's eyes he will not dread it. Even the nose might be partially covered to simulate the anesthetist's ether mask. When talking to a child that is about to be operated upon, it is best never to use the word, sleep. Never say to a child that he is going to be put to sleep or made to sleep, because of the psychologic impact of the word, sleep. Rather, the painlessness of the procedure should be emphasized and the child reassured that he will not be hurt and that he will suffer no pain. But the word, sleep, or terms similar to it should be carefully avoided. Toy* Help Another good idea is to bay the child a toy or a present which will be his when he returns from the hospital. This places emphasis where emphasis is due — on the fact that the child will be completely recovered, able to play with toys and enjoy them once the operation is completed. If the child can meet the doctor or the nurse on social or friendly grounds prior to surgery, so much the better. If the child identifies the doctor or nurse as a friend of the family or as a personal acquaintance, preparation for operation becomes relatively simple. Most doctors know that the emotional effects of anesthesia or operation may be long- lasting and so they, on their part, do everything possible to approach the child on a warm and friendly basis. The day of Telephone Is Helper and A Despair By RUTH MILLETT Along with its monthly bill the telephone company has sent me a little folder to remind me that the telephone is the "housewife's helper." The chatty little message goes like this: "How often do you use your telephone? The answer to this question would probably surprise you, as it did a neighbor of mine who kept track of her calls for a week. In a little diary she jotted down * note about every call she made or received. During one week she counted 107 calls. My neighbor found most of her calls saved time or work...." If most incoming calls save a housewife time and work she must not'have any teen-age children in the family. And it is quite obvious that she doesn't have her name on every advertising list in town and on every list of "good prospects" for charity drives and community work. If she did, her diary of a typical day's calls would probably go something like this: "Joe called Junior at 4 o'clock to make plans for double-dating tonight. Asked if I could take a message, he said he would call back later. "Joe called again at 4:20. Joe called at 4:40. Joe again. Junior still not in and Joe still reluctant to leave message., "Member of church circle called to ask if I would bake two cakes for bake sale. Said I would. "Dance school called to tell me I had been chosen for a free dance lesson. I said: 'Thank you. but no.' "Got out of shower to answer phone. Wrong number. "Let roast burn while Mrs. C. tried to talk me into heading PTA committee. "Spent 40 minutes listening to Dora tell me her troubles. Said she felt better when she hung up—but by ironing still in basket." Those outgoing calls may be timesavers for a housewife. But the incoming calls are one of a busy housewife's biggest headches, for the housewife doesn't have a secretary to say she is in conference when she is elbow deep in work.
