Housework Can Trim Your Figure By ALICIA HART NEA Reniily Editor As a busy housewife, you may feel that you have no time to spare for exercise and other beauty chores. But you'll be pleased to know that you can fight the battle of the bulge while you do the housework —and earn a beauty bonus, too. It's not what you do but the way that you do it that works this miracle. First of all, set your hair before you begin the day's work. Tie it up in a bright scarf or wear a pretty cap designed for that purpose. By the time you've finished the chores, you can comb out your hair and it will be pretty for your husband's return that evening. When you dust the tops of doors or other high places, stretch up from the waistline until you feel a pull, and continue the action, rising on tiptoe. When done regularly, this will firm the muscles in your svaist, abdomen and calves. On washday, when it's necessary to haul a laundry basket around, make it work for you. Since the basket will be heavy when full, deep knee bend down to lift it up. This will not only exercise your leg muscles, but will save your back from unnecessary strain. No one has ever claimed that scrubbing floors is fun. But if done properly, it can do a lot to trim excess inches from your waistline. Try stretching your arms to clean the largest area possible. You'll cover more ground in less time, and limber up those unused back and waist muscles, too. The same stretching movement should be used for dusting under tables and chairs. Your hands will always look smooth if you coat them with a gentle lubricant like camphor ice and then wear cotton gloves when dusting. Rubber gloves should be worn for all or rummaging through her keepsakes? Do you sometimes compare Monday, Aug. 1, St. Joseph's Hospital, Mr. and Mrs. Sjhelton Mayes, A thin film of rich face cream will do wonders for your complexion if left on while you. her unfavorably with an older 402 Silver St., Bethalto, a son, clean house: It can be quick- sister or another girl of her own age wishing aloud that she were more considerate, or weren't so shy or whatever? Do you keep telling her how much you do for her and how little she seems to appreciate it? Do you argue with her as though you were both the same age" Do you criticize her more than you praise her? Mothers often find teen-age daughters quite impossible to get along with. But it usually isn't all the fault of the daughter. With the best intentions in the world a mother can make a daughter secretive, rebellious, or stubborn if the mother doesn't realize that a teen-a«er can't be treated like a child.— NKA.

D. Mole*. Other Skin Blemishes Questions from several readers have come in today's mail dealing with the subject of various skin blemishes, particularly "moles" and, since it is impossible to answer each of their questions individually, I'll try to answer them all together in a single column. Q. "For as long as I can remember, I have had a black spot on the right side of my chin. I have always been ashamed of it but, when I was younger, it didn't bother me. I would like to have it removed. What do you advise?" I agree.' The day and ase when a black spot or a "moK>" was regarded as a "beauty mark" has long since passed. If the mole has not undergone any recent change in size and color, it is quite likely that it can be considered harmless. Such a mole can be removed surgically but, often, it can be "burned" away more easily with an electric needle. This is a relatively painless procedure and, when done properly, should leave only a tiny, almost invisible scar. In most cases, the procedure can be carried out in your own doctor's office. Q. "I /am 62 years old and I find that I have more brown spots on my body. Friends told me that these are liver spots. Should I change my diet?" The belief that brown patches on the skin are due to liver disease is an ancient one but has no foundation in modern medicine. Liver disorders may cause jaundice or may produce tiny, fine, red, capillary line (like spiders) on the cheeks or nose but liver conditions do not cause moles. Diet does not affect these brown skin discolorations. Some browning of the skin is often present in Addison's disease of the adrenal glands. Recent investigations show that the average person has anywhere from 15 to 20 moles nically as an intradermal nevus. It accounts for almost 75 per cent of all such skin blemishes in adults and it practically never becomes cancerous. In appearance, the intradermal nevus is usually dark brown in color, smooth, slightly scaly, and it may be raised above the skin somewhat resembling a wart. It is often hairy and may feel somewhat thick but it also can be smooth, flat and hairless. Some may be present at the time of birth but usually most of them make their appearance after puberty. It is not unusual for intradermal nevi to increase gradually in size over the years so that they may double or even quadruple their original surface area. Most of these, however, are harmless and the only problem they pose is a cosmetic one. As has already been pointed out, removal with an electric needle is often safe and simple. * • • • Q. "I have several moles on my body. How can I tell which may become malignant?" A. Experts classify nevi into five types, some of which have so remote a chance of becoming malignant that it is likely that less than one in a million will do so. In most cases, therefore, there is no cause for alarm or anxiety. Of the most dangerous types, there is the compound nevus which can be found both in children and adults. In children it often is uniformly brown and this should be regarded with some suspicion. on his body and the number In adults if the nevus js two . often increases with the pass- tone or specMed with dark ing years.

If there is any question, a good skin specialist or surgeon might be consulted about the advisability of their removal. Q. "I have had three moles removed from my skin because I was told they could lead to cancer. Now I have a fourth one on the outer side of my right arm. It is flat, about a half inch in diameter, dark brown. Should I have it removed?" A. It is obviously impossible to remove all the moles from everyone. Such a task, if undertaken, would become a full- time job for all the surgeons in the country. The medical term for a "mole" is "nevus" and the pleural is "nevi." The most common type is classified tech- When Wat Your PILLOW Sttrilized Last? PILLOWS $1.19 August Special FrM Pick-Up and OtJivtry WI,Mwy. HO 14177 brown or black, it is also extremely suspicious. About 10 per cent of all cancerous moles arise in compound nevi of this type. For the reader, the most important point about moles is to remember to watch them. Any nevus that grows larger, darker or shows change in size and color should be called to the doctor's attention. If your doctor believes that a nevus is potentially malignant, he will usually prefer to remove , it by cutting it out rather than burning it off, The mole that is cut out can be sent to the pathologist for microscopic examination and pathological classification. Furthermore, since some moles may have deep "roots," mo,st surgeons prefer to remove a wide area of normal skin with the mole just to be on the safe side. © I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc.

Y.—(Science Service.)—Parents who put a retarded child in an institution love him just as much as those who keep him at home. Four completely different factors influence the institutionalization of retarded persons. At the conference on scientific study of mental deficiency held recently in London, England, Dr. Gerhart Saenger, director of the Research Center of New York University's Graduate School of Public Administration and Social Service, presented the findings of a two-year study of factors influencing institutionalization of retarded persons in New York City. The Expert Says Illinois Peaches Are Good Quality, Size A oic URBANA—Illinois peaches are of exceptional quality and size this year, reports Ross Kelly, University of Illinois fruit and vegetable marketing specialist. The reasons for this topnotch crop are the ideal growing conditions and little insect damage. Winter damage reported earlier has not affected the quality of the crop. But it has slightly reduced the total volume. Nevertheless, the state's commercial peach volume is expected to hit 500,000 bushels. Elherta peaches, the bulk of the state's crop, will be harvested in Union County starting about Aug. 15. J. H. Hale and Rio Oso Gem varieties will follow shortly after the Elbertas in this and other peach-growing counties. In spite of better growing conditions and care, you may still find peaches with bruises. Small bruises may affect the looks hut not flavor. But deep bruises are wasteful. study was released here by Dr. Paul H. Hoch, New York state.commissioner of mental health. The four factors are: 1. The degree of mental retardation. (AJ1 with an intelligence quotient of less than 20 are normally committed.) 'i. The family income and racial background. 3. Family adequacy. (Conditions in substandard homes or slum areas often determine that a child shall be put in an institution). 4. Adjustment of the retarded child to the community. (Sexual offenses were found to lead almost invariably to placement in an institution.) One of the most significant findings of the study was the fact that parents' attitudes toward their retarded child appear to be only a minor far- tor in the decision to put him in an institution. This means that they do not love him less if they send him away. ANNUAL PICNIC Old St Francis Parish PORTAGI DIS SIOUX, MISSOURI One Mile Off Highway No. 84 between St. Charles and Alton.
