Deny Bloom Qndures With Persistent Care By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Those crystal-skinned princesses who, in their twenties, possess flawless complexions often find that in their thirties, the going is rough. There's a good reason for this, of course. Clear skin with fine poVes and that translucent look is most often dry skin. As the moisture recedes, you'll find you can't take the sun in summer or the indoor heat in winter as readily as you once couid. But there's no need to despair. This has been a beauty problem in every century. But you happen to live in a century where every posible aid is available to you. Most likely, what you'll settle for is nightly application of a rich cream for very dry skin. It's likely to have a high content of lanolin. It will come off on your pillow case to some extent but don't let that bother you. Send the pillow case to the laundry and remember that you'll have to look at that face of yours for a long time to come. You'll find that regular use of a really rich cream will leave your skin looking dewy and moist once again.

Afflicted Nuns Do Valuable Lab Research By RUSSELL, LANDSTROM DEVON, Pa., — In a ' cramped little laboratory that was once a bathroom, a small band of physically afflicted nuns are doing their bit in the fight on cancer. The nuns, members of- the Roman Catholic Congregation of Jesus Crucified, pore over microscopes examining specimen slides for the presence of uterine cancer. The specimen slides are brought to the convent each week by Dr. Edward Rehak, chief pathologist at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore. He takes back the finished work and the nuns' reports. Dr. Rehak supplied the first inspiration for the project while casting about for some productive activity that would also have a therapeutic value for the nuns themselves. They suffer from such illnesses as polio, heart disease, rheumatism, arthritis, osteo- myelitis and tuberculosis. Mother Marie Landri, prioress of Regina Mundi Priory, gave her approval and the laboratory was set up in the bathroom of what was once a doctor's mansion. The lab, headed by Japanese-born Mother Marie Aimee, examines about 50 slides a week on its present schedule. It hopes to reach 100 a week before long. Doctors say the laboratory detectives have spotted between five and 10 unsuspected cancer cases out of every 1,000 specimen slides they have examined. Eight of the 30 nuns in the community now do the laboratory work. They are trained by Mother Marie Aimee. who prepared herself by taking a course at Temple University Medical Center in Philadelphia. Californian Honored At Party in Stan Her Residence Mrs Carl Grosshcirn Jr., of Long Beuch, Calif., was guest of honor at a party Wednesday evening in the home of Mrs. Collis Stauffer, 611 E. 5th St. Hostesses were Mrs. Stauffer and Mrs. Kenneth Dickeruon.

Mrs. Grossheim and Mrs. are sisters. Ann Landers 4-Year-OldShouldNOT Have Charge of Phone t>EAR AWN: A dear friend of mine has a 4-year-old daughter who is n pain in the neck. This child is permitted to answer the telephone every time it rings. The mother thinks it's cute and encourages the girl to chat at length with the adults who call. Mayhe I'm an old meanie hut I have no I desire to listen to the child babble on and on. In fact I find [her obnoxious. I'm tempted Ann l-nndrrs. to tell the mother how I feel but I don't have the nerve. Do you think it's right for n 4-year-old to have complete charge of the telephone 11 How can I avoid this irritating: situation? TRUDY DKAR TRtnV: Don't call her -let her call you. In my opinion, a 4-year-old should not be permitted to answer the telephone. Children should be taught early that a phone is not a toy. Young children should speak on the phone only to those who ask specifically to speak to them, and not be inflicted on every unsuspecting caller. Should you tell the mother how you feel? If you're long on friends and don't mind losing one, go ahead. • * * * DEAR ANN: We've been married 22 years and have three children. Our life together has always been a little rough for a variety of reasons. I learned two years ago he was seeing a woman who works for him. She's 10 years younger than I am. very pretty, and I can see how a man would fall for her. I went to pieces and started to drink heavily. He promised if I'd quit drinking he'd stop seeing her. I have kept my promise and he has kept his. I've* been going to the office every day to do the bookkeeping. The truth is I'm keeping an eye on him. This woman got. married last year but she still works there. Our relationship is strained and sometimes I think I should stop fighting it. I've offered him freedom but he says he doesn't want it. What's best? UNDECIDED DEAR iTNDfcrtDEB: Kefp fighting but adopt some new ring rules. Stay away, from the office. Your husband feels "watched" and this is poisonous to any relationship. Make yourself as interesting and attractive as possible. And when he's at home turn on the heat. * * * » IJKAR ANN: I'm 15 and never dreamed a girl my age could need advice so badlv. A week ago Saturday night this fellow (I'll call him Rook) asked for a date. He said he'd call me during the week and let me know what time he'd pick me up. I stayed home all week waiting for the call localise he is a very popular senior. Well, he didn't call and I was heartbroken. This morning my best girl friend.told me that last night she and her boy friend doubled with Rock and his date was a girl who is a real kook. • This afternoon Rock had the nerve to call me for a date for next week. He acted as if nothing happened. I said no-that I was busy, and I made no reference to being stood up. The trouble is 1 really like the guy or should I say rat and I rlo do'do want to go out with him. How shall 1 play it? FAY DKAR FAY: Play it cool. The next time Rock calls for a date tell him you'd like to go with him but you've learned from experience he's not very reliable. Ask him what happened and give him a chance to explain. There's no point in stewing silently about something when he may have a perfectly plausible explanation. • * * » Are you going steady? Making marriage plans?

SEAMS TO ME Bv Patricia Scott Though we always prefer to buy new lingerie rather than mend the old, it's often siily and wastful when garment is still in good condition and simply needs a change of elastic. * * * * Q. I have a sewing problem ! 1 want to kno\i' how to replace the elastic which has worn out on a nylon half slip. 1 notice the slip is gathered to stretch with the elastic. How is this done? I've tried but with no success. Mrs. B.B.T. A. No wonder you have a problem! Cut the elastic about two inches shorter than waist m e a s u r e m e. n t, and stretch elastic to fit slip. Use nylon thread and set machine for a rather long stitch. While applying elastic to slip, stretch elastic, pulling oije end with your left hand and the other with your right. You can still guide the stitching of elastic and slip with your right hand while stretching elastic. * * * * Q. How in the world do you make the corded, skinny straps on sun dresses? I can't figure out how you get the cord and seam inside: Please help.— Miss D.W.S. A. It's really not as mysterious as it seems. First, buy cord the thickness you wish. Cut bias strip of fabric 2 inches wide and as long as finished strap will be. Cut cord twice as long as bias strip. Place half the cord lengthwise along center of right side of bias trip, allowing other half of cord to hang free. Fold bias strip over cord and stitch (top sketch of illustration), using'cording foot machine attachment. Stitch cord to end of bits strip from which uncovered cord hangs tree (2nd sketch). Stitch this several times to secure. Trim seam. Starting from stitched end, work bias strip over uncovered cord, turning inside out. until uncovered cord is covered (3rd sketch). You can buy a tubing turner to make turning easier. » » * » Q. How can I cut and sew jersey fabric? I've tried several times and have made a mess out of it. Miss G.M. A. Pin pattern securely to wrong side of fabric so the edges won't roll. Then cut. After removing fabric from pattern pieces, baste each section to tissue paper to prt- stJ't-U'hing. Use a long machine stitch (10-12 stitches per inch) and a slightly loose tension. As you machine stitch, stretch fabric slightly to avoid pucker, sewing with tissue paper on the bottom, and jersey on top facing you. This will allow you to manipuate the fabric and pull it slightly as you stitch. Hang garment at least 24 hours.before marking and putting up hem. I suggest over- casting the hem edge instead of using ribbon seam binding to finish raw edge. Then, again stretch slightly as you hem by hand. * * » » Miss Scott is happy fo 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. <© UBO Held EmerprUM, Inc.)

OIAPIS «Kl SlIPCOVUS FOR SANITONI MY CLUNINO Mlllbn ClMntrt lUk MIlUio B4. fboot HO 24M1 Don't Talk AT, TalkWITH Your Adolescent "I just can't seem to talk to my 15-year-old daughter," a mother writes. Lots of parents find it hard to stay on easy conversational terms with their adolescent children. If they ask questions, the kids feel their privacy is being invaded or that they aren't trusted. If they discuss an adolescent's friends, the slightest hint of criticism may be resented. If the parent tries to be helpful, the adolescent all too often feels he is being lectured. So there is a special art or knack a parent has to learn in ord^r to keep conversations between parent and adolescent friendly and free-flowing. When your child comes home from a party, don't say bright- Jy, "Now tell me all about the party." Chances are that will only get you a gloomy, "There is nothing much to tel'." Asking a teen-ager to tell you "everything" about anything makes him shut up like a 'clam. If you want to hear all about the party, ask one unimportant little question, and chances are you'll unleash a flood of information. If you want to know more about your daughter's friends, don't ask a lot of prying questions that indicate you are trying to find out if they are the "right sort." If you don't appear to be eager to disapprove, your child won't feel she is constantly having to protect her friends against your criticism. When a teen-ager confides in you regarding something you don't approve of, don't jump down his throat. Hear the story out and then gently ask, "Don't you think it might have been better if you had done such and such?" You'll hear a lot more confidences ff you can keep your reactions from putting your adolescent child on the defensive. It takes tact and patient and understanding to keep the lines of communication open between a parent and a teen-age son or daughter. But it can be done.—(NEA). Cooking Cues Nice for lunch: toss orange sections, onion rings, romaine or other .salad greens with French dressing and serve with cold baked ham and hot biscuits. If you want that double-crust fruit pie to have a good-looking glaze, brush the top with egg yolk beaten with a couple ' of tablespoons of milk, then bake as usual. Next time you serve creamed .dried beef for Sunday brunch boil some eggs and shell them. Add the slivered hard-cooked egg whites to the beef; for a mimosa-effect garnish, press the hard-cooked egg yolks through a Small fine sieve.

Teen - agers too are well aware of the pressing problems of our times — as well they might be since the problems eventually will land in their laps. We found that even during summer vacation, young people are concerned about world and domestic affairs —although boys and girls have different viewpoints. For example, the majority of boys — 24 per cent — feel disarmament is the greatest international problem. But girls say their greatest worry is over Russia and communism along with race riots in Africa. We asked 953 teeners to list in order what they consider the most troublesome topics of the day. Here is how the boys responded: 1. Disarmament (24 per cent) 2. Russia and communism (17 per cent) 3. African race riots (16 per cent) 5. Peace '14 per cent) 5. Food shortages (13 per cent). The girls gave this ranking'. 1. Russia and communism, African race riots (24 per cent) 2. Disarmament and peace (18 per cent) 3. Radiation and atomic energy, Cuba, space race (7 per cent). • Expressing the viewpoint of many young people worried about international - peace, Frank Piechowisk, South Bend, Ind., says: ' "If there is not a halt in the weapons being tested, there will not be a world left in which to live." Segregation In Top On the national scene, the majority of both boys and girls —47 per cent—agree that segregation is our most pressing problem. Boys ranked domestic issue's this way: 1. Segregation (43 per cent) 2. Inflation and high cost of living (10 per cent) 3. education (8 per cent) 4. Farm surplus (7 per cent). Here is how girls listed national problems: 1. Segregation (50 per cent) 2. Civil rights (7 per cent) 3. Payola and delinquency (3 per cent) 4: Education and inflation (2 per cent). Teeners also feel that international tensjon has increased over the problems of radiation and atomic energy, Cuba, the space race and the Berlin crisis. The race with Russia is the TAN WITH SEA^SKI POSITIVELY PREVENTS SUNBURN! KM vovi MOMCY IACK) greatest concern of Sandy Spath, 17, St. Louis. "Russia is a country thnt cannot be trusted." he says. "We may make an agreement with her but we cannot be sure that she will hold true to it." Ron Medow, 17, of South Bend, Ind., is concerned over a more individual matter. He says, "Each person is too sr-lf centered to worry about the welfare of others." Cathy Fischgrund. 17, also of South Bend, questions U.S. censure of race riots in South Africa "with our own situation the way it is." Moral Standards the Crux Darwin Doss, 19. of Pocatello, Idaho, reflects the view ot many young people in his comment: "The moral standards of the people have degraded so that all other problems, 1 think, stem from this factor segregation, payola, juvenile delinquency and .corruption." Bill Guest, 17, of Clarks Summit, Pa., believes graft, labor unions and organized crime syndicates are the nation's worst scourges. And Ronaid Fournier, 16, of Hartford, Conn., lists over-population. Several teen-agers are concerned about the nation's economy. Betty Golec, 17, of Hartford, Conn., notes "We are spending a great deal of money, much more than Russia." Our young people have their own ideas on remedies for the world's headaches. Here are some of their proposals: Disarmament: Total gradual disarmament of great world powers, beginning with nuclear weapons (Cathy Fischgrund, 17, South Bend, Ind.) Communism: Educate people to know what and how communism operates and its effects (Elizabeth Trysinski, 18, Hartford. Conn.) African race riots: Force nationwide elections to set up government the people want (Don Hoffman, 17, Missoula, Mont.) Segregation: Integration starting with elementary grades and increasing gradually (Rosemary Schiller, 15, Factoryvllle, Pa.) Farm issue: Less production, less government control (Robert Feingold, 18, South Bend, Ind.) Juvenile delinquency: Give teen-agers more freedom, understanding, .responsibility (Tom Kelly, 16, St. Louis.) Some teen-agers also are uoinnd over the pace of morl- rrn lilc Say« Darwin Doss, 19, Pocati'llo, Idaho: "Everything is (.'"ing 'oo fast, our schools are overcrowded, hom6s ar*> not a place of learning any more.
