Mrs. Arch, who teaches sewing in a Pittsburgh department store during winter months, co-authored the book "Bishop Method of Clothing Construction" with Mrs. Charles Bishop. Mrs. Arch will work on a new book this winter. Ann Landers She Admits Snooping In Medicine Cabinets DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am one of those "nosey" women who frequently opens medicine cabinets when I'm visiting. In defense of myself as well as other women, I would like to say it has nothing to do with my nose outside of the fact that I am merely looking for some powder to put on it. How many women remember to take their purses into the bathroom? Darned few I'll bet. I NEVER do. When I look at myself in the mirror I invariably see that my hair could use combing and my nose needs powder. The natural thing is to scout around for implements to do a repair job. I couldn't for the life of me tell you what else is in the cabinet. Apologize, please. —NO SNOOP .DEAR NO SNOOP: Sorry, but in my book you are compounding a felony. A hostess who wishes to supply Ann Landers, her guests with implements for a repair job will leave them out in plain sight. When you must look in the medicine cabinet for the tools it's reasonable to assume they are not intended for your use. May I humbly suggest you cultivate the habit of taking your purse into the bathroom? * * * * DKAK ANN LANDERS: What would you do if you were planning to graduate in June and one crummy teacher gave >ou a flunk and you had to go to summer school in order to pet that one lousy credit? Well, it happened to me and I want to tell you it was horrible. Not only did I miss out on the graduation exercises with all my friends, but I had all my announcements printed up and couldn't send them out. What I want to know is this: Alter 1 get that one credit in summer school, shall I send out the announcements to my friends and relatives and write:: Graduated in summer school." I don't want gifts. I just want them to know I graduated. —BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. DEAR LATE: Sorry, but in this case I think "Never is better than late." Sending out announcements under these circumstances would appear to be an open pitch for gifts, even though you don't mean it that way. Too bad you missed out on graduating with your pals, but this is an example of how important one lousy credit can be. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've only been married three years and my husband and I are paying on a home, a car and some doctor bills. My two brothers are much better off financially than my husband is. They are putting me in a very uncomfortable position and I need help because I don't know the right thing to do. Our father passed away recently. A man came over to see us about buying a stone for Papa's grave. He showed us some pictures and made some suggestions. He was a nice man and didn't try to pressure us into anything. My brothers agreed on the most expensive stone in the • book. I said nothing. Then Vern, the oldest brother, turned to my husband and said, "Of course we'll split the cost three ways." When we got home my husband told me how much our share would be. I was shocked. We can't afford this expense, Ann. I treated my father with great respect and loved him defrly when he was alive. I think THIS is what counts, and not an expensive stone. What do you say? Please tell me what to do. —ONLY DAUGHTER. DEAR DAUGHTER: Give your brother a check for an amount which you can afford and tell him this is the best you can do.

Weak Fingernails And Limp Hair Are Definite Warning Weak, brittle fingernails and limp hair are definite warning signs. They mean you're not getting enough vitamins and, possibly, not enough rest. Tackle the problem by having a physical check-up. Then ask your doctor to recommend the vitamins that will do the most for you. Don't go out and just buy them on the strength of the bottle or the recommendation of a fiiend. What's good for her may not be right for you.—NEA. Homemaking Hints Those white terry jackets for the beach now come decorated with a pretty colored fish motif, just for the fun of it. But the jackets themselves are practical for quick drying-off. '5 C Guide 9 For College Wardrobe The "8 Cs" - Co11eg«, Oat, Care, Coordination and Comfort — form a helpful guide for girls choosing their first college wardrobe, according to Joan Graham, home economist at the University of Illinois. College Is the first "C" because It should be determined first. Miss Graham emphasl/e« the importance of knowing your college before you plan or buy. Each college has Its own fashions and acceptable styles. These vary not only from one section of the country to another, but also among colleges in the same state. If possible, talk or write to a girl from the college you plan to attend, Ask her about acceptable classroom, date and party clothes. Another source of Information are the college boards that large department stores employ each summer. Again, the board representative Irom your school can give you more specific suggestions. Many colleges and universities include in their handbooks for freshmen women a section on wardrobes. The handbook, 1LLINI WISE, prepared by the Student Committee of Freshmen Advisers, University of Illinois, has a section called, Right Clothes at the Right Time. This booklet is mailed in late summer to all freshmen women enrolling at the University. You might write to the Dean of Women at your college and ask if they have similar information. Cost is the second "C." Whether your budget is limited or large, consider both quantity and quality as you shop. Quantity buying of small items and accessories — lingerie, scarves, belts, socks — is sensible. But a few top-quality coats, suits, sweaters and skirts will prove less costly than a quantity of poor-quality garments. The poorer qualities won't wear so well and will require too much care to keep them presentable. Care is the third "C." Think about the care each garment will require before you buy it. Is it going to the dry cleaner, a commercial laundry, Into a laundry case for mailing home or into your personal laundry bag? If you will do your own laundry, think about the facilities available and the time you'll have to spend on wardrobe care. Wash-and-wear or minimum-care garments have advantages, but often require special laundering facilities. Coordination is the fourth "C." Coordinate the entire wardrobe by colors. Color-key the basic garments to your own coloring and preferences. Then color-key sets of accessories to the basics and to each other so that all can be mixed and matched. Comfort is the fifth "C." One of life's questions is whether women dress for physical or for mental comfort. To have physical comfort, choose fabrics and styles suited to the prevailing climate or seasons at your college. Then be sure each garment fits as if it were made especially for you. Mental comfort is of equal importance. The comfort of knowing that you are dressed correctly and attractively should be a direct result ot using this "5 C" guide. Beauty Tips Dry or chapped lips present a beauty problem anytime, but during summer they become even more annoying and uncomfortable. In the morning, before applying lipstick, apply a night cream to your lips and wipe off with a damp-dry sponge. To give your eyes a special color brilliance, apply a pale blue eyeshadow, stroke on a band of brilliant blue, and finish by lining the eyes with a deep blue fluid eyeliner. If you are having trouble applying dry rouge so that It looks like natural color, try applying it with a face powder brush instead of a puff. SAVE Buy your furniture on Easy Budget Payment Plans...

Iroodwoy AltM, UllMll SIvAMS TO Ml l&v Palririn S< oil My thanks to thp many readers who have sent me their Ideas on mesaurtng for hems without the aid of skirt marker or human help. I regret that I cannot print all of thrse hints, but do wish to say that the suggestions are very much appreciated. My thanks to the many renders who have sent me their ideas on measuring for hems without the aid of skirt marker or human help. I regret that I cannot print all of these hints, but do wish to say that the suggestions are very much appreciated. Q. I have a problem and have found that the neighlxir- hood dressmakers do not know the answer. My right hip is I'2" higher than my left. How can a pattern be adjusted for a straight skirt so that the skirt doesn't pull up on one side? Mrs. P.A.G. A. If you make onr side of the pattern longer than the other, your skirt will hang right. To alter your pattern, draw a cross-wise line about five or six inches below the waistline as in figure 1 of illustration. Cut along this line. Raise section at the side seam until the skirt length at the side is the same as your own measurement (figure 2.1 Slip a piece of paper under the pattern and pin in place. * * * • Q. I want to buy a dross I saw made of 100 per cent dacron which has knife pleats in the skirt. It fit perfectly except for the length. I want to know if I could shorten it at the hemline and press th>> pleats in again without ruining them. The owner of the store tells me I must shorten it from the waist.—Mrs. H.A. A. The owner of the store is right. When working with permanently pleated synthetic fabrics, you cannot turn up a hem. The crease of the pleat has been put in chemically, which makes it impossible to take out. This is the beauty of a permanently pleated skirt. If you turn up the hem. you will definitely ruin the pleats. • * • • Q. I have put together several patterns In order to get something I like. However, is there any pattern company that would make up a pattern from a skrtch? I am very In- ternsted in designing.--Mrs. R.B. A. How nice that you are intorpsled in designing! However. I'm afraid you'll have to continue combining different piittprns. or start working from a basic pattprn. Manufacturers of patterns will not make any patterns from sketches. Creating patterns for individuals is so expensive that it is impossible for any company to make the necessary facilities and personnel available. • * • • Miss Scolt is happy to help Spams 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.

Homemaking Hints Silver dishes and ornaments needn't be polished so often if you give them a good sudsy washing once a week, rinse them with very hot water and dry them with a flannel cloth.
