High school graduates, male or female, will be eligible to take the tests. DEAR ANN: You frequently say in your column that a married woman need not put up with a man she no longer cares for. You phrase it this way: "Your husband has to support his children or go to jail." By such advice you give the impression that when a wife gets bored, she can throw her husband out and collect support Ann Landera. money. In other words, you encourage divorce as "the easy out." In case you don't know it, Ann Landers, there are already too many man-hung divorcees on the loose. You don't help the situation by painting glowing pictures of the split home. You do more harm than good and I wish you'd button your lip on this subject. A 4-YEAR OBSERVER DEAR OBSERVER: Anyone who has read this column for four years should know where I stand on divorce. If you can show me a single column that I wrote which advocates divorce I will buy you a new car. (Your choice.) It is the law that a man must support his children. Most states have closed a favorite loophole for irresponsible husbands who simply left the state to avoid paying support. I do not believe that a woman should live with a man who abuses her and the children or beats her regularly, like a gong. In such cases, I recommend separate roofs and child support. This is not the the same as divorce. In my book, marriage is forever. * W lii I * DEAft ANN: 1 grew up with a girl I will call Wendy. To this day we are the dearest of friends. Our mothers were very close for many years. Recently Wendy's mother said to me, "1 never see your mother any more. I call on her but she doesn't call on me. I feel bad about losing her friendship and I wish you'd tell her." I phoned Mom that night and told her what Wendy's mother said. This was her reply: "I can't tolerate that woman since she has become a grandmother. She talks of nothing but her grandchildren. "She doesn't give a person a chance to sit down before she hauls out dozens of pictures. Then she starts with the anecdotes. I can't stand it." Shall I tell Wendy to pass along the word? CHARLOTTE DEAR CHARLOTTE: Stay out of it. Let your mother pick her own friends. Your information would not be well received by either Wendy or her mother. * * * * DEAR ANN: I'm a girl who just turned 13. A few months ago I was in seventh heaven and now I am in heartbreak hotel. I'm crazy about a boy who used to like me. I know it's my fault that he doesn't care for me anymore. Several months back he threw snow on me after a big dance. I slapped him across the face in front of a lot of kids. I know it was the wrong thing to do because he was just being playful. I have tried to apologize but he still won't be friendly. I've tried everything I know of to get him back but nothing works. Please help me, Ann. BLUE LADY DEAR LADY) Age 13 and already a permanent resident of "Heartbreak Hotel?" Well! Kids of 12 should be throwing snowballs at each other and not going to dances. You behaved childishly because this it the way children behave. Slow down. (P.S. Where's your mother, anyway?) Inc.) Church Notes The senior choir of the Godfrey Community Congregational Church will hold a car wash and bake sale Saturday, from 9 o'clock in the morning until 2 o'clock in the afternoon.

According to Survey Teen-Agers Have Changed Their Minds About the Man to Beat By EtJORNK GILBERT President of the Gilbert Yonth Reneafch O>. A large portion of America's politically conscious young people have changed their minds since the first of the year and decided that Senator Kennedy is the man most likely to be next President. This is our interpretation of replies from 953 teeners. In the earlier survey, the vote of a somewhat similar group was first for Vice President Nixon, second for Gov. Rockefeller and third for Kennedy. One factor In the change, of course, was that we made the recent inquiries after Rockefeller had seemed to rule himself out of the race and before he had said he could be drafted. Another significant point In the current survey is that teenagers from Democratic families outnumbered those from Republican families 3 to 1. (The proportion in the first poll was 2 to 1.) Yet only 43 per cent opined that Kennedy would be chosen President, against 23 per cent for Nixon, 3 per cent for Adlal Stevenson and 2 per cent for Senator Symington. Others didn't know or mentioned dark horses. Attacking the problem from one more angle, we asked the youngsters for whom they would vote personally If they could, assuming that Nixon and Kennedy were nominated. Fifty-four per cent said they would vote for Kennedy, 37 per cent for Nixon and 9 per cent undecided. time for Chancre? Mahy who chose Kennedy did so because they felt it was time for a change. "I have had enough of Republicans," said Terry Harton, 17, of Flushing, N. Y. "Kennedy has some fresh Ideas." Others said they were attracted by his capabilities, personality and youth. Among the teen-agers for Kennedy, some like the young millionaire from Massachusetts as a personality. "Kennedy is a young man with a lot of new ideas," says 16-year-old Cherle Woods of Missoula, Mont. "He is intelligent and capable of dealing with situations." Some are staunch Democrats. "Our family has been Democratic for many, many years," says Alice Gaioonik, 17. of St. Paul, Minn. "I think that Senator Kennedy Is forceful, brilliant, competent. He has the interest of the people at heart." Some are attracted by his youth. "Because Kennedy Is younger," says Raymond demons, 17, of Detroit, "he is able to understand the problems of youth." And some are simply against Nixon. "Nixon is a staunch reactionary with Nixon's best interests at heart," says 18- year-old Carole Weber of Berkeley, Calif. And 17-year- old Rick Schlifelbein of Grand Haven, Mich., says, "I do not believe Nixon could lead our nation ably in, these trying times." Religion A Factor • Among the teen-agers for Nixon, experience is the most often-repeated argument. "1 think that Nixon is better prepared to take on the responsibilities of president," gays Nancy C. Carter, 17, of Knoxville, Tenn. "He has more expert*nce than any other candidate," says Tom Hopkins, 18, Of Waverly, Pa. He also has party supporters. Mellnda Cross, 16, of Knoxvllle, Tenn., favors the vice president "because my family always votes Republican." And Kennedy's religion Is an important factor with many Nixon supporters. "Nixon has had a lot of experience in foreign relations as vice president," says Diane Meali, 16, of St. Louis, Mo., "and Kennedy is a Catholic and Is under the rule of the Pope In Rome." In explaining why they think Kennedy will be elected, his supporters point to his recent primary election successes. Among those who choose Nixon, the religious question ser-ms to be the dominating reason. "Many people, even Democrats, will vote for Nixon because Kennedy Is Catholic," says Judith Hehl, 18, of South Bend, Ind. "Nixon is the most well known, and has done a remarkable job HS vice president," says Kathleen Daniels, 18. of St. Paul, "and I believe that religious prejudice will prevent Kennedy from becoming president." "People are afraid that religion will mix with politics if Kennedy gets it," says Yvonne Schlogel, 17, of St. Paul. Born to: Mr. and Mrs. A. J.

Fashion Facts Net and chiffon hoods have- become favorite summer head coverings to protect coiffures at the beach, on boats or in open cars. They have replaced the print scarves which were worn peasant-fashion. If you want your swim suits to last out the summer, give them loving care. Whether you swim in pool, lake or sea, your swim suits need a thorough sudsing at the end of the day. Roll them in a terry towel and dry them on hangers. Cotton chiffon separates are perennial summer favorites. Cool and dressy enough to wear from luncheon into early evening, they're useful in almost any wardrobe. SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scott Little decorative details, such as arrowhead tacks are not only pretty, but wonderful as reinforcement on pockets and pleats. They are well worth learning how to make. Q. Please show me how to make arrows that are used at top of pleats and corners of pockets.—Mrs. H.C.M. A. The arrows- you refer to are called arrowhead tacks. Following the illustration, (ai mark shape of tack; brin« your needle out at the lefthand corner ajid take a small stitch at upper corner from right to left; (b) then, put your needle in at the lower right corner and bring it out at the left corner just inside the first stitch; (c) continue this way, placing stitches close to each other until you have filled in the entire triangle. Illustration (d) is your completed arrowhead. Q. I have a suit jacket that fits beautifully except at the back of the neck. It has a crosswise wrinkle below the collar and looks as though the neckline is too high. How can I alter this?—Mrs. D.B.F. A. To lower a too-high back neck line, take off the collar across the back. Now lift the back up on the neck so that it is smooth. Pin the under- collar on so it sets well. Then mark the new neck line formed by the undercollar. If the neckline seems too wide across the back now, ease it in with a few gathers. Be sure to shrink out this fullness before replacing the collar. I would also suggest making a basting line to mark the center back of the jacket. This helps in making both sides of the neck exactly alike. » » * * Q. I am new at sewing. At present I am making a dress with gathered neck and drawstring. The pattern mentions the casing when it describes the neck. What is meant? Is this some sort of thing you put a tie through?—Miss K.D. A. Yes, this is what you put your tie through. A casing is a hem, or facing with an opening, through which elastic or a drawstring can be run. * * * • Q. Several times I have noticed in magazines the term pattern transfer for embroidery or applique designs. As a matter of fact, you used it in a recent article, What is it and where can I buy it?—Mrs. C.J.B. A. This is a design imprinted on a paper with wax which can be transferred to fabrics with heat and pressure of an iron. Designs of this type may be purchased at pattern counters.
