TUESDAY, JULY 12, IftOO ALTON EVENING TELSGftAPH PAG* MINK SI VMS TO Ml [\\ !\ilriri;i Srofl If you've been looking for the perfect gift for otw of your sewing friends, a scissor« ease may be the answer. This is an accessory all you sewing gals should have but rarely do. A scissors case is ns Important to have in your sewing cabinet as a sewing basket, and, if made of gay colored felt, it is decorative M well. In addition, it will protect your precious scissors and shears, which are all too often thrown around carelessly. And If you have small children in the house, the scissors case serves as a hiding place, keep- Ing the sharp instruments but of little hands. Felt is a wonderful fabric to work on for several reasons. It is 72" wide and a non woven fabric without a grain, allowing you to use up every Inch of it. Fabric comes In a glorious range of colors, and finishing edges is unnecessary since It does not ravel. Sewing on it Is simple, if you use a medium to long stitch (8-10 Httiches per inch), a light tension, and mercerized cotton thread. To make Ihp case, cut two rectangular pieces of felt with your pinking shears, 16"xl2". The pinking shears are used to give the case a decorativp edge. Place your scissors and shears, tape measure, thimble, and other necessary supplies in position and mark the location for the little protective covers, as illustrated. Include a spot for needles and pins When cutting the covers, again use your pinking shears for the decorative edge. Now, on one piece of felt, stitch all covers in place, as shown. Next, take some sou- tache braid and stitch around the edge of each rectangle of felt. Place the two rectangles wrong sides together, and stitch down the center, thus holding both pieces together. Cut two pieces of buckram to fit each half and slip between Be The Perfect Guest! BY VIVIAN BROWN AP NewBteaturm Writer So you are going to be a guest again. For a weekend? A week? A short summer? If you weren't aware of the guest mistakes you made last year, do some soul-searching now to see whether you were a good guest or a bad guest. It'll not only prove beneficial to your hostess, but perhaps she'll ask you back again. Here's a refresher list to determine your guest quotient: 1. Arrive on time or notify your hostess in plenty of time that you have been delayed. Don't wait until she's meeting the train you missed to get in touch with her. 2. Walt until the family tells you how the home schedule runs before you tell them of any plans you have in mind. If you have a friend who lives near, wait a while before you dash off to visit her. 3. Be prompt for meals. If there isn't any help in the house, ask how you can be of assistance, particularly at mealtime. If you are delegated as table setter, be there in plenty of time to do the job.' 4. Be cheerful. Nobody wants a Bourpuss around. A gloomy type will not be Invited back. And don't giggle yourself .into guest oblivion. 5. Keep your room tidy. Make the bed, dust and remove any powder that has spilled on bureau or rug. Be easy on the towels. 6. Be aware of the little things. Don't take over the living room. If you want to read past a reasonable time, do It In your room. If there is a radio in your room, do not play It while others sleep, If it can be heard out of your room. 7. If the hostess expects you to observe a curfew, don't sulk. She is responsible for you during your stay. 8. Be prepared clothes-wise. Establish beforehand what clothes you should carry with you. Don't expect your hostess to have extra umbrellas, rain hats, sweaters. If you don't have these things on hand, borrow them from friends or buy them before you go on your trip. 9. Be diplomatic.: If your hostess Is the mother of your good friend and they have a squabble, ignore It. Don't assume that you must side with your friend. 10. Leave on the day appointed. Extend your leave If you are persuaded to do so in a sincere fashion. But don't put your hostess in the position ul having to ask you to stay a* cause you are reluctant to leave. If you leave as a good guest, your hostess will be anxious to have you come again. Vacation Time Should Be Creative Time By DOROTHY V. WHIFFLE, M.D. AP Newsfeatare* Children need something to do besides watch television and go to the movies during summer vacation. But, they need adult help and enthusiasm to get something going. Projects that catch on with the youngsters must be creative. The thing that fires a child is something in which he uses his imagination, and expresses his feelings. It must be productive of some results, also it must not be too difficult — children become discouraged when the job seems beyond their capacity. • Several children in a family or a group from the neighbor* hood can work together in a project perhaps more successfully than a single child alone. What to do? Arts or crafts are the time honored creative activities and they stiU hold much charm. But try to be a little different from the programs at school fhat do not have the flavor of "vacation." How about planning an art show, with all ordinary paintings barred? Use twigs, leaves, feathers, sponges, shells, stones to make a" picture. Glue them onto pieces of wood, bark, or blotting paper. Color them with paint or get effects with their natural colors. Make some flat like an ordinary picture or use a three dimensional technique. Block prints can be made in unusual ways. Interesting leaves can be inked and the impression pressed onto paper or wood. Cut a large white potato in half, carve interesting shapes on the moist white surface, let it dry and then Ink the surface and make prints. ' Collections are always a source of interest. Artistically arranged, a collection of leaves, ferns, grasses or shells can be displayed in the art show. If you get really ambitious these collections can be worked into the basis of u tray or into a lampshade. Getting projects of this sort going is not easy. It takes plenty of adult enthusiasm, interest and help. Set up a workshop on the porch or in the backyard.

Cut handles and pin in place. Stitch around entire outside edge, and your scissors case is completed. Make your case in bright colors such as shocking pink or turquoise, covers in white and soutache braid in white. To use up leftover scraps, make eyeglass and compact cases by measuring size of ai- tide, cutting two pieces of fell with pinking shears and men stitching along edge. Decoratf in braid, or embroider by hand or with zig-zag machine. These cases make wonderful (rifts for any occasion and though inexpensive, will be greatly appreciated. * * » * Miss Scott is happy to help SEAMS TO ME readers with their sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobo and fashions.

At least one resident along one of the streets designates his house as being on Washington avenue although information at City Mall shows that Washing' ton stops at Claire avenue and from that point on it Is Humbert road. However, a new city f&ap a' the Telegraph indicates that old Humbert road is still design^ ed as Humbert. Old Humbert runs to and beyond the QMfcO tracks where It runs into wnnt is commonly called Humbert road near Falrview drive. The city directory and the telephone listings of some of the residents along the new section of, street that was cut through from Washington avenue show that several residents along the now section resides on .Washington.

Make it a formal show, maybe even with tickets and certainly with lemonade and cookies. Invite in the neighbors, maybe a teacher, perhaps plan the show when grandma will come for a visit. Cook'ing might be included in the children's creative accomplishments. A delicious batch of cookies, deliciously flavored punch is as much a work of art as a painting.
