My mother is only 45 years old. She is attractive, lively and likes a good time. She's g been a widow | for almost 20 I years and al- Iways had dates, I but nothing seri- ious until five I years ago. Mom has been I going with Steve land no one else. ' He gives her Ann Lander*, money and buys her clothes. She doesn't work. Several of my friends and relatives have told me that she is immoral and some have even called her a plain tramp. I've asked her either to marry the man or give him up. She gays she never wants to marry again. My husband says she is disgracing us and that I should have nothing to do with her. Maybe I'm wrong, but I love her in spite of the talk. My husband said to write to you for your opinion. He told me to be sure to tell you we have children who will soon be asking questions. Thank you. POLLY DEAR POLLY: Tell your husband disgrace doesn't rub off on people. Your mother ig a grown woman and the rather sorry mess she's made of her life is her own little red wagon. When your children ask questions, simply tell them that Steve is Grandma's gentleman friend who takes her places because she has no husband. No other details are necessary. Don't feel that you must apologize to anyone. * * • • DEAR ANN: I'm 23, married B swell fellow a lew months ago, and am now separated. Chris had to travel in his business and I got fed up being alone four nights a week. I told him either to change jobs or move out. He got mud and hollered at me that 1 knew what line of business he was in when I married him. Then he moved out bag and baggage. My folks are disgusted with me and I. can't blame them. 1 made a big mistake and I know it. The question I need ach ice uith is (hi*: There is a vacancy in the bfime building untie- my nus- bund now live* and I would like to move in over there. 1m sure it would help tiring Uh together. My folks say no hut I know Chru better than tlwy do, I've written him several let- ters and he hasn't answered. He hasn't returned my phone calls. In short, he's been ignoring me. I don't trust my own judgment any more. Can you help? ROZ DEAR ROZ: Stay where you are. If you move into the building where your husband is now living, he'll only ignore you at closer range. Stop running after him, and give him a chance to miss you. In a few months ask your clergyman to act as intermediary—and stay out of the negotiations until he expresses a desire to see you. * * * • DEAR ANN: On my birthday my son sent an orchid for me to wear to church. I pinned it on stem-side up. My neighbor said I had it pinned on wrong. She claims flowers should be worn stem-side down —as they grow. Who is right? W.H. DEAR W.H.: She is. Flowers should be worn so that when you look down at them, they look up at you. » * * • Confidential to IGNORANT MALE: Tight garments can be murderously uncomfortable. She wasn't trying to ditch you early. The combination of a standin' up girdle and sittin' down shoes can shorten any woman's evening. • * * • Are you going steady? Making marriage plans? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Before You Marry—Is It Love or Sex?" enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Recent Improvements in the use of the electrocardiograph permit physicians to make accurate charts of the current produced by the contraction of an infant's heart muscle as early as the 22nd week of pregnancy. SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scott One of the most discouraging things that can happen to a new sewer, is to start with something that is not only difficult, but ugly, too. For some unexplainable reason, most women start right off making a dress when they can't sew a straight seam, don't know anything about fitting, and haven't the foggiest notion about how to apply a zipper. Then, -to make matters even worse, they create this charming dress in a style they don't particularly like but because it looks simple, and in a fabric they detest, but choose because it's inexpensive. This is the fastest method I know of to change the mind of anyone with the slightest desire to learn to sew. But if you start with five or six simple things which give you practice in machine stitching, gathering, hand finishing, edge stitching and zipper application, you will find that making your first dress will not be such a catastrophic experience. For instance, if you make an apron, dirndle skirt, dickey, simple blouse and a clutch bag, you'll be creating practical things and. at the same time, practicing ' the various steps necessary to make a dress. When you plan these practice projects though, choose the fabrics you like. You must like what you are making and look forward to using it. The practice clutch bag Is s good example of a simple, practical and pretty accessory. It gives you practice in stitching seams, edge stitching and putting on a skirt zipper by machine. You'll need: a piece of fabric, 20'/sxlO% inches; 1 skirt zipper. 1. Cut a rectangle of fabric 20MJ inches long and 10% inches wide. Then cut a 4'/a inch strip from one end. Looking at the wrong side of the fabric, pretend that the narrow piece (on left in diagram > I 1 t 1 1 1 is the back of a skirt, and that the longer one is the front. The edges marked in the diagram by "x" represent the waist edges. 2. Join one side of the two pieces in a % inch seam: stop 2% inches from the bottom edge. Now baste the piacket area, which is the balance of the seam. Press seam. 3. Put on zipper in the basted part of the seam as shown on zipper package. 4. Stitch across the "waist" edge of placket about \k inch from edge. Remove basting. Open zipper. Fold fabric in half, right sides together, and stitch % inch seam to the top and side edges. Then trim the seam to Vg inch. 5. Turn purse to right side through open zipper. Press edges. Stitch 14 inch inside all edges. If you're handy in the needlework department, decorate with pearls, beads, or yarn embroidery. Or, tack a pretty cluster of flowers. You can make this purse out of denim, corduroy, wool, cotton, satin, etc. to coordinate with any dress. In doing so you will gain practice in applying a zipper to a skirt. Miss Scott is happy to help Seams to Me readers with their sewing problems, and with questions on wardrobe and fashions, However, because so many are seeking her assistance, Miss Scott asks readers to please limit their letters to one question. Send your question to Patricia Scott in care of the Alton Telegraph, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope for reply. College Notes William J. Kodros Jr.. son of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Kodros of 2317 Russell Ave., will go to Ann Arbor next week to attend orientation week for freshman at the University of Michigan. BALTIMORE, Md. Service. )-Milk is still a most satisfactory protective fodd, regardless of concern about Its *trontlum-90 content. In fact, the July issue of Nutrition Reviews, published here, reports that milk actually protects against strontlum-flO •»• cumulation In the bone. "The reports released by the U. S. Public Health Service of gradually increasing levels of strontlum-90 In milk have led to Increasing concern on the part of both professional and lay persons," the magazine says. But a survey by Dr. Bruce L. Larson, assistant professor of biological chemistry, department of dairy science, University of Illinois, gives strong support to the claim that milk is still man's most satisfactory food, not only In terms of nutrition but in preventing strontium-90 accumulation in the bones of bur population. The survey is reported in the Journal of Dairy Science (43:1. 1960) in which Dr. Larson says evidence now indicates that people In the "primary milk-consuming areas" are getting relatively lower levels of strontium-90 In their bones than people In the primary "pi ant-con sum I n t? areas." This is attributed to the high calcium level In milk. Dr. Larson says "it may be just as wise to Increase milk consumption as to try to remove the strontium-90 from the milk." to: Mr. and Mrs. Harry Price, 3209 Hillcrest, a son, 7 pounds, 8 ounces, 3:05 p.m., Friday St. Joseph's Hospital.

Mind Your Manners When a young man arrive* for a first date and the door in opened by the girl's mother or father, he should introduce himself. Then, not before, he may ask if his date is ready. In planning what her attendants will wear, a bride should consider what they can afford. Dresses should be within reach of those with the least money. Be careful not to embarrass your teen-ager by scoffing at his ideas or bawling him out in front of others. It Is almost as important to let others do things for you as to be willing to do things for others. Don't be too proud. MISS NORA ROSE SEARCY Miss Searcy to Marry J. B.

Marry Her If She Passes This Test By RUTH MILLETT Memo to young men : If you want to make sure you are getting a good wife- Get to know your girl's mother. Chances arp she is more like her mother than you might suppose. Don't rush her from school to marriage. Let her work a year in order to learn the value of a dollar and to give her an idea of what you'D be up against in the business world. Make it a point to find out if other girls like her. Girls who are generally disliked by other girls aren't usually much of a bargain as wives. Notice how she treats her parents. If she is high-handed with them and inconsiderate of their feelings, how do you think she'll treat you once the honeymoon is over? Find out what she wants out of life—and see how it jibes with your own dreams and aspirations. Perk up your ears if she talks about "hating housework." When you marry a girl you automatically turn her into a housewife, you know. Does she like to make you jealous? If so, you had better watch out. When she gives you her word, can you count on it? Dependability is a mighty important trait in a wife. Are you happy just to be with her? You're going to spend a lot of time together, you know. Is she happy, gay, and full of fun? Life can be mighty flat living with a person who takes little joy in living. Are you quite sure she wants to marry you—and doesn't just want to get married? Is her belief in you so strong that it has strengthened your belief in yourself? If your girl still looks good after such careful consideration—you had better start look- Ing at engagement rings.— NEA.

Diced celery makes a crisp addition to this good combination.
