East Alton Church Is Scene Of Smith and Justice Marriage MRS. NORMAN L.

Hurried and preoccupied, her mother would say sharply: "Don't mess up daddy's paper like that. If you want the funnies, turn the pages until ybu find them instead of pulling them all apart that way. ' Patty, pushing the funnies away, would look as strictcen at> though you'd ac<«used her of murder — and promptly burst into tears. This response made nor mother feel like Simon Legree. an unpleasant feeling. Ashamed of hurting Patty,' she'd try to make amends by taking her on her lap and cuddling her. But as this comfort contained apology and some secret impatience, it failed to comfort. It merely confirmed Patty's impression that making a mistake wa* an intolerable thing so that the burst into tears attain the very next time she wa* corrected U| m^frlng QM< With children like Patty, the problem is always to reduce their fear of making mistakes. We reduce it by giving them careful opportunities to correct the mistakes. Instead of cuddling our weeping Patty lor messing up daddy's paper, we sit beside her on 'the floor and show her how to restore its scattered pages to order. Instead of avoiding the subjeot ol the tap she's left running in the bathroom by tui/iing it oft ourselves, we go upstairs vvith her while she turns il oft with the same hand thai left it running. Instead of getting caught in her impression that making a mistake is a terrible thing, we reduce its terror for her by showing her how to put it right. A child who is oversensitive to criticism has not been made aware of his own self-correcting powers. Though our cuddling may comfort him tem|KJi- arily, it gives him no experience of his own strength* but keeps him dependent on omv (AU Rig^ Reserved, NBA wF'lce Inc ) Miss Sandra Faye Justice became the bride of Norman L.

Eat More Than Salads, Cold Drinks During Summer During the summer months, be as careful about your diet as you are in the winter. Don't decide to slip through the summer on a series of salads and cold drinks. You need lean meal, fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, eggs, cheese, and some milk, just as you do in winter. You should have some hot food every day. And you should be careful about too many soft drinks, too much ice cream and too much salt if you don't want your weight to shoot up.—NEA. Additional Salt Mot Necessarily Needed in Summer Many people ask, "Are salt tablets necessary in summer?" Harriet Barto, University of Illinois nutritionist, says they aren't usually needed unless one is engaged in heavy labor in extremely hot. humid conditions. These people perspire profusely, causing a large loss of salt from their bodies. Other people do not generally perspire enough to demand added salt in tablets. The salt content of natural foods, together with the salt one adds as seasoning, provides enough. Increased perspiration does, however, increase water needs So it's just common sense to increase fluid intake to compensate for loss of water. MRS. STEVEN S.

Life of Divorcee Is Not As Glamorous As Painted BY RUTH MILLETT An Italian professor who has returned to his own country after a visit to ours has a few hints for us on how we could cut our divorce rate. In cases where the wife files for a divorce, the professor suggests that the wife should be compelled to give up her husband's name and return to the status of "Miss." He also recommends that a wile's alimony not exceed the salary she earned before marriage. And if she never held a job before marriage, he thinks she ought to be returned to ner father who should share in her support. "An American divorcee keeps most of the pleasures of marital status without having its responsibilities," says the tough-minded professor. His recommendations sound a little drastic, don't they? And wouldn't we women fight to keep our "rights" if anyone took his ideas seriously? Actually the American divorcee isn't as well off ag a visitor, getting his ideas from the divorcees he meets at cocktail parties, on shipboard, or otherwise leading the life of Mrs. Riley (ex, that Is) might suppose. Though the divorcee can keep her husband's name, nobody thinks of her as a wife. She loses that status the day the divorce is final and even her good friends being to think of her as an extra woman who is a social problem. If she Is good-looking and has a way with men, women who still have their husbands and intend to keep them, close tight the social circle in which she once moved. The "Mrs." .before her name is just a signal to other women to keep an eye on her. As for a divorcee's alimony, unless her husband is well-to- do, she is lucky if she gets as much as she earned before marriage. The divorcee living on fat alimony payments exists —but she isn't typical. And poor old papa, likely as not, IS helping to support his divorced daughter . and her children—not because he is required to, but because divorced daughters. have a way of bringing their problems home. On top of that, mama may find herself bringing up her grandchildren so the divorced daughter can hold down a Job. Nope, even in America the life of a divorcee isn't glamorous. It might seem so to a casual observer—especially on« from another land. But behind that bright smile and that independent attitude the divorcee, even in America, is just a woman without a man of her own. (All Rights Reserved. NBA Service. Inc.)

Vacation time means that there's an opportunity to Invite friends and relatives for a visit lasting anywhere from a weekend to a week or more. tn order to enjoy these visits, make your, preparations in advance. The hostess who waits until the last moment to clean the bathroom, put out fresh towels and get the guest room in order Is usually the one full of breathless apologies as her guests arrive. And somehow, from there on, nothing ever really gets organized. / Be thoughtful of your guests' comfort, just as you expect them to be considerate of you. Small sizes of cosmetics, toothpaste and other oddments are readily available at the 5-and 10. Be sure that you have them on hand. Don't expect your guests to share a squelchy bar of the family soap. This isn't really an inviting prospect. Instead, put guest size cakes of soap out on the dressing table in your guest room. A famous French perfume house has brought out a fine, hard-milled, long-lasting soap scented with its classic perfume. This soap comes in guest sizes, packaged in a modern black and white plastic box. There are eight bars to a box and the price, for luxury soap, is not high. A last word to the wise: when you extend your invitation to guests, make the time limit very clear. This way, no hard feelings will arise from an overextended visit. MISS WHITTLEMAN Engagement Told at Party The engagement of Miss Donna Day Whittleman and Robert Halton Rich was announced Saturday evening to family members and close friends at an outdoor party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Echols, 228 Westwood PI., Rosewood Heights.

Robinson officiated, and the sponsors were Mr. and Mrs. James L. Lyons. Beauty Tips Soaps and detergents are the traveling woman's best friends. They rate an important place in every suitcase, even when your trip will be a short one. Eyebrows can be made , to look more high fashion and glamorous when groomed with an eyebrow brush before and after pencilling. Eyelashes look thicker and softer when brushed apart with an eyelash brush or a spiral wand.

This brings me to the main reason for writing. My married friends are everlastingly trying to find me a husband. They refuse to believe that not every woman wants one. Perhaps there's something missing in my makeup but I have no desire to be wife, mother, mother - in - law or grandmother.

The fourth specialist just told my wife that we will probably never have children. He suggested adoption. My wife is Against adoption for the following reasons. She claims that some babies who appear normal at birth turn out to have defective vision, damaged brains, and inherited weaknesses. She expressed it this way, "It's bad enough when your own turn out to be defective but it's a double tragedy when you go out and look for trouble." I hate to think of a life without children. Perhaps if some of your readers who have adopted children would give her the benefit of their experience, it would help. And may I have your opinion, Ann? STILL HOPING TO CELEBRATE DAD'S DAY. DEAR HOPING: A few years ago a similar letter appeared in this space—only it was a wife who wrote about her husband's fear of adoption. I invited adoptive parents to express themselves. Never have I had such heart-warming response. 1 hope the readers will respond again. Millions of homes have been transformed from lonely, dreary dwellings to palaces of fulfillment and happiness. Adopted children produced this magic. Repeatedly I've heard adoptive parents say, "We should not have waited so long. Before, we only existed. Now, we are living." » * » » DEAR ANN: The beef from "Outgrown Wife" prompts this, my first letter to a newspaper.
