SATURDAY, JULY &, 1WO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE Ann Lander* She Doesn't Owe Her Neighbor An Apology DfcAR Att* LAimfiMi My next-door neighbor and I are both expect™^ ft oaoy In a couple of month*. Our 4-ytar- oids are only .twu wMkt apart. They play together constantly. The neighbor's Httta fin has asked no questions. My Nancy Is a human question - box and nothing escapes her notice. L a • t week she ask' ed why I was wearing such a "fat dress" and t told her Aim Landers, what was hap* penlng. She was very excited at the prospect of having a new baby in the family. Yesterday my neighbor came storming Into my house. She overlooked? Or should my husband stay away from the wedding and tea them why later? MAN Oft Aft 40 Aft f Chances art your name was left off the Invitation unintentionally. Suggest that your husband mention it to the boss in a half-kidding way. It will save wear and tear on everybody and the boss will admire his bigness. Suggested statement: "Joan's name wasn't on the wedding Invitation but she's coming anyway. She wouldn't miss your wedding for the world." DEAR ANN: I visit a certain friend every several weeks. I've known her for years ind she always was the type who liked to put on the dog.

Rodger* awnue, has rtturn- tfd from a ttjrw week* vacation in England, most of which she spent'getting personally acquainted with a pen pal of l? yearn standtof. The North Rodger* mother 6f four children had never «wn Mrs. Arthur R. Beavers, of Lowestoft, Suffolk, until she slipped off fhe train after a weary fbur-hour rtde which was the more noticeable because nhe had whipped by jet from New •York to England In six hours. Mm. Howard found her pen pal charming; and wonderful and settled In a town neat the sea. She said the townsfolks thought the weather pleasant but the Alton-primed housewife thought It chilly. the pen friendship started with Mrs. Beavers when Mrs. Howard was In high school.

I had told her the stork story and now you've made a liar out of me!" She claims I had no business telling a 4-year-old about babies and I owe her an apology. Do I? UPSET' DEAR UPSET: You didn't mako a liar out of your neighbor. She made one out of herself. No apology is due. A mother who peddles the stork story deserves exactly what your neighbor got. Any child who is old enough to notice a physical change and ask questions is old enough to hear the truth. The story can be told io simple and beautiful language with no scientific or clinical detail. If a mother feels inept, she can buy any one of several fine books which outline a presentation for pre-school children. DEAR ANW LANDERS: My husband's boss is getting married soon. A church wedding and large reception have been planned. The invitation which came to our house was addressed only to my husband. We are not social friends but I did meet the couple a few times and they were pleasant. My husband feels bad that I was not invited and he is eeriously considering not going. I'm urging him to go without me rather than create had feelings. Do you think this was poor manners, and should be involved In long conversations ular but alw «y» picking up (at least 30 minutes).

IGNORED GUEST DEAR IGNORED: It is extremely impolite to carry on a friendly 30 minute telephone conversation while a guest Is present. An emergency call is different but there's no excuse for casually fanning the breeze. The next time you're in her home and the phone rings toil her you know how much she likes to chat on the phone and if she's going to be longer than five minutes you'll conic back another time. Give her'ten. . . and if she's STILL on the horn -- leave. To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with you rrequest 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be <?lad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-ad- dresed envelope.) <O I960. Field Enterprises Inc.) SEAMS TO ME (5v Patricia Scott article about Mrs. Howard's in the Lowestoft press. i The reporter was interested in ja couple of things which were j rather predictable. Do the women in the American household wear the pants? And what appliances did she have in her American home? Mrs. Howard flunked the first question as far as the American men are concerned. She said the "women wear the pants." This, no* doubt, pleased the English readers who get their odd i ideas about American life from JTV serials such as "The Life of Rlley" and Hollywood movies. The fallacy is perpetuated by the English press and magazines. But on the appliance question Mrs. Howard must have bowled over the English, many of whom, it is understood, still are trying to reach the central heating stage. The Alton housewife j reeled off a list of handy help- jers about the home that meas jured a couple of inches long in .type. These included refrigerator, deep freeze, power mower, washer and, dryer and on and on — topped off with a station wagon. The Alton housewife was enthralled by England. She especially liked the fact that yards were all fenced and dogs did not roam at will. She spent time with Mrs. Beavecs visiting the sights in the home area. They saw castles, sea ports, attractive residences and best of all, beautiful churches, Mrs. Howard said. The Alton woman spent two weeks with her pen friend and vthe last week in London before returning home, arriving last I week. , Mrs. Beavers is the mother of two daughters and her husband w-orks in a factory and is a lay j reader at church. Some day she j hopes to make the trip to Alton jto visit Mrs. Howard. I Mrs. Howard is ready to go jback to England any time.

Of course, you can make regular straight seams on anything, but when working on certain fabrics or styles, you'll find the end result is not satisfactory. In giving instructions, I often say "use a French seam," or "a slot seam gives an Interesting effect," completely overlooking the fact that many of you readers may be left tn the dark. So, to make the sun shine again, here are just a few of the many different types of teams used. French Seam: (A) This is a seam within a seam and ii used mostly on sheer fabrics; Place wrong sides together and stitch H" from edge. Turn seam to the inside and stitch on regulation seam allowance. The raw edges are completely enclosed. Never use this on a curved seam. Flat Fell Seam: (B) Used on tailored clothes such as men's shiits, pajamas, etc. On garment outside or inside, stitch a plain seam. Turn side seams toward garment back. If it is an inside armhole seam, turn toward garment. If an outside seam, turn toward sleeve. Trim the under allowance only. Turn the raw edge ol the top seam allowance over the * trimmed side and topstitc-h "close to the turned edge. Corded Seam: (C) A pretty and delicate finish at necklines, sleeve edges, waistline etc. on blouses, childrens dresses and lingerie, Cover cord with strip of true bias. Stitch close to the cord, using cording or zipper foot on machine., Insert between seam edges with cord extending beyond seam line toward garment. Baste and stitch, using cording or zipper foot. Slot Seam: (D) Mark with a basting line a strip of fabric which has been cut the length of the seam to be made. Press under seam allowance of two pieces to be joined. Bring the two folded edges to meet alone the basting line. Top stitch an equal distance on each side of the folded edges. This seam adds Interest and a quality look to simple dresses and suits. Welt Seam: (E) Most often used on slipcovers, bedspreads, cushions, when light or medium weight fabrics are used First stitch a plain seam. Then trim one scam allowance Press tht wider allowance over t it. Stitch about 14" from seam line througn double thickness of fabric. * * * * Miss Scott Is happy to help SKAMS TO ME readers wiih their sewing problems, with questions on and fashions. However, cause KO many ai* the Alton SIU Center toured Alton State Hospital Friday as part of a special study in educational psychology and mental hygiene. The students heard a welcoming address by Dr. Abraham Simon, superintendent, in the hospital staff room. Dr. Endre Komlos, assistant superintendent, followed with a brief outline of the treatment program. A final talk was given by Mrs. Edna Westover, supervising therapist, who spoke on the activities therapy department, The group was later divided into two parts for tours to the wards and various working areas. MR. AND MRS. OOBLE MOVE TO LOUISVILLE i Mr. and Mrs. Gary Goble and family, 2478 Sylvan lane, have moved to Louisville, Ky. Goble was employed by Alton Box Board Co. at Highland and has been transferred to the Louisville plant. The family, Including twu boys, moved Thursday.
