The Women Sorial Events — Group Activities Ann Landers Married in He Was Saved by 7 Years Of Care by Psychiatrist Ann BEAR ANN: The letter from "Worried Aunt" who wrote about her 9-year-old nephew being dressed like a girl, brought back nightmarish memories. I'm now married and the father of four children. No one will ever know the battle I fought to live I a normal life. My mother I w a s divorced [ when 1 was an Infant. She kept me in girls' dresses and long curls until I went to school. I remember the teacher visiting at our home and pleading with her to cut my hair. Mother gave me dolls to piay with and taught me how to sew. When I was 11 Mother died, but I was pretty much messed up by that time. I went to live with an aunt and uncle who were well aware of my problem. 1 must have cost them a small fortune for psychiatric care. For seven years I was in treatment. I was one of the lucky ones who found the road back to normalcy. But when I think of how close I came to a completely different life I shudder. There are too few enlightened people who realize that these tragic figures are the victims of a very sick parent, and that the problem of homosexuality is mental, not physical. They need understanding not ridicule. Thank you for printing this— if you dare. SAVED * * * * DEAR ANN: My husband thinks an awful lot of your judgment but he doesn't think much of mine. I work from 8 till 5. His hours are irregular. He often comes home from work at 3 or 4 o'clock in the afternoon. I can't* slick the house up before I leave in the morning though I do try to tidy it up somewhat. My -husband has fallen into the habit of bringing home a couple of men and a woman or two from the plant every afternoon. I find them there when I come home. They sit around and drink and talk and sometimes help themselves to food. I've told him I don't mind the men so much but I hate to have strange women in my home when I'm not there. He says the house is h-ilf his and he should be free to invite in anyone he wants. Am T eccentric as he says, or is he inconsiderate? MOST CONCERNF.D DEAR MOST: When your husband says the house is half his he is right. This means, of course that it's half yours as well and yon should not be overridden. Your objections are perfectly valid. If your husband continues to ignore them tell him you're going to work half days from now on so you can be at home in the afternoon to receive his guests. * * * * DEAR ANN: I'm an old fogey who is all hot and bothered by the letter signed "In The Middle." This unhappy mother wrote to ask what to do about her husband who insisted on giving their 15-year-old son $10 a week allowance to spend on hot dogs, soft drinks and foolishness. All of this nonsense is going on when the family is having a tough time paying bills! This mother deserves a lot of sympathy and many prayers because I'm afraid the young whipper-snapper will soon decide the drinks are too soft and $10 a week isn't enough. Just because this dad had it rough when he was a boy is no excuse to make a hoodlum out of his son. Too bad the kids today will never know the fun of saving for weeks to get 15 cents together to spend at a county fair. OLD FOGEY * * * * To learn the booby-traps of teen-age drinking, write for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a Jarge, self-addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Alton Telegraph enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.) «D IMO Field Enterprise*. Inc.) Oriental Lounge Area Beckons Young in Legs Hints Jelly tests done when a couple ol <li ops of the syrup run toKfthci and flow off as one drop liorn the bide ol a spoon. B.v KAY SHERWOOD Newspaper Enterprise Assn. "We're doing our utility room in Oriental," the sweet young girls who live across the street announced brightly, "and we want you to come see what you think of it." I've read and seen plenty about the Far Eastern trend in home furnishings but I'd never heard of a trend to red lacquered ironing boards and pagoda-shaped washer, 1 feared the worst. These attractive sisters have been my loyal suppliers of information and trusted baby sitters for years and their ideas are ingenious, to put it mildly. But in this case their "doing" an Oriental utility room turned out to be a simple and practical approach to a familiar problem. The girls and their widowed mother are gay and popular people. Their smallish living room in their modern split- level home just isn't large enough for entertaining two sets of friends. So the hunt began for space where the girls could entertain informally. The utility room provided it. Placed over the garage in this basementless house, it had been planned for storage as well as for housing utilities, and is about 10 feet wide and 17 feet long. The furnace, water heater, washing machine and tubs are located at one end. Their idea of a Far Eastern decor is based on the use of floor cushions instead of chairs, and of straw matting, matchstick blinds and a Japanese lantern. Kven though no true Oriental could ever call this home, the effect is pleasant and admirably suited for the meager budgets and limber legs of youth who scoff at chairs, sofas and similar refinements. Walls are painted a soft green. Mutchrtifk blinds, attached to low coiling beams, ran lx> let down to screen the machinery \v h e n company comes. Most ot the floor, away from the washing machine, is covered with thick, inexpensive straw matting. Floor cushions, plastic covered in bright blue* and greens, are homemade. Finding a suitable table to be used for ashtrays, refresh- ments and records presented a problem. No old table they had could be cut down low enough without looking totally un-Oriental. Remembering a table I'd seen improvised at a picnic where guests sat on the blanket-protected ground, I could offer a suggestion. Basically, the low table is a sheet of plywood set on square wooden blocks. I asked a designer friend who knows about such things how this could be fixed to fit into the setting. A sheet of plywood 3 by 5 feet is the top; four square blocks cut from 6 by 6 posts are the legs. The top, painted with a semigloss paint in a color, features a narrow black border with a simple geometric design in the corners. Legs also are black. The border looks difficult but isn't, because it's done with masking tape, not a stencil. After the plywood is sealed or primed, the area around the edge is painted black. Use two coats. When paint is dry, masking tape is laid on to mark the border and corner pattern. Then the top coats in color are brushed on. When the finishing coat has almost dried, the tape is carefully stripped of I. When dry, wax the top for deeper luster. For a successfully sleek look, apply tape precisely (use a ruler and a light pencil line to mark a straight path). Use properly mixed paint. Use a clean paint brush an inch and a half to three inches wide with tapered nylon bristles. Churches A Unity Meeting will be held in Mineral Springs Hotel Thursday evening at 7:30 o'clock.

Give »•' To Poultry Before Buying URBANA- F>en with graded poultry, your eye is still a good judge of quality and wholesomeness, according to James Roush, University of Illinois poultry marketing specialist. You can catch the changes that may have occurred since grading. And using visual inspection, you can determine the quality of ungraded poultry. Here's what to look for to get top quality: (1» A broad breast and short plump legs. (2) Yellowish or cream-colored skin evenly covering breast, back and legs. This indicates that the area is well covered with fat. A bluish or reddish tinge beneath the skin means a poor fat layer. (3) Freedom from pinfeathers, cuts, tears, broken bones, flesh blemishes and bruises. Cuts and tears let the flesh dry out during cooking and lower eating quality. (4) For frozen poultry, freedom from freezer burn. Freezer burns on poultry skin are easily recognized as small pock marks or excessively dark blistered or dried areas. This defect is caused by improper freezer storage. Such defects lower eating quality because there is loss of moisture and natural juices. Life's the Same But the Terms Are Different By RUTH MILLETT "The families grandmother used to call 'bad managers' are now labeled 'overextended'," says Marcelene Cox. Yeah, and "putting on the dog" is now called "status seeking." "Going into debt" for something is now dignified by the term, "financing." "Trying to make ends meet" is called "family budgeting." "Putting something aside for a rainy day" is referred to as "planning for'future security." "Pin money" or "egg money" has become the housewife's "personal allowance." "Heading for the poor farm" is now referred to as "living beyond one's means." "Borrowing from Peter to pay Paul" is today called "refinancing." "Putting on a front" is now referred to as "living graciously." "Asking for a loan" now is "establishing credit." But no matter how we change the terms—the situations remain pretty much the same. The only difference is that the old-fashioned terms were a little more colorful and usually a lot more to the point than today's more dignified but less definite ones. Saying that a family was as "poor as Job's turkey" was certainly more descriptive than calling them by today's label —"underprivileged."—NEA.

Interest in the past few years in Mr. Eisenhower's coronary thrombosis and the late John Foster Dulles' cancer has given way to a curiosity about even more exotic and lesser known illnesses such as Addison's disease and who-knows-yet-what- else. Considering that other public figures may soon develop even more strange and unusual illnesses, it seems Important that our readers be infprmed in advance so as not to be surprised by any later press releases. The following is n glossary of illnesses whichi like Addison's disease, have become known largely because they have been named after doctors. Although this list is not complete, it will undoubtedly prove valuable and should be carefully filed away for future reference. Albers • Sehonnerg Disease; This condition is more commonly known as "marble bones," a hereditary ailment in which an excess amount of calcium finds its way into the hones so that they become unusually dense or hard. This disease was first reported by Henrich Krnst Albcrs-Schon- berg in 1903 for whom the condition is named. Alzheimer's Dinette: Unlikely to be found in any political candidate or man in public office since it is a condition in which there is unusual softening and scarring of the brain at a rather early age. Sometimes called "pre-senile de- mentis," it was first described by Alois Alzheimer in 1907. Barlow's Disease: This, too, may prctve rare in political figures unless they are exceedingly precocious. Barlow's disease is otherwise known as "infantile scurvy" and, 'since orange juice and vitamin C have all but eliminated scurvy, it is not likely that it will prove to be a major issue in any politir-al campaign. Incidentally, the disease was first described by Sir Thomas Barlow, a London physician who died in 1945 at the age of 100. Buerger's Dtseane: A disorder of the blood vessels, usually of the arttries and veins of the legs in which the blood vessels have become narrowed and clotted. Sometimes the circulation in the legs is so shut off that amputation has Buerger's Disease, not .lust one. C'oole.V's Anemia: Obviously, as the name indicates, this is a type of anemia. It occurs in families, especially In those who live at the edge of the Mediterranean or whose family originated on Mediterranean shores. Usually a disease of young people, It is not likely to become an issue in political campaigns. Dercnm's Disease,: This unusual condition was first described by an American neurologist, Francis Xavier Dercum, in 1888. In this disorder little lumps of fat under the skin become Inflamed, tender and painful. What causes this disease is not known but it hardly ever poses a life- threatening situation. It is a condition usually seen in women and, since women are more reluctant to admit to any excess fat, it is unlikely that this will be called to the attention of the voters. Ktmmelfttlel.W II n o n Syn. drome: Compared to some of the other conditions already mentioned, this is a rather new disease, having been first described by Drs. Kimmelstiel nnd Wilson in 1936. It is a kidney complication of diabetes and tends to shorten life. Its role in politics is still unknown Marian'* Syndrome: This is a somewhat spectacular condition hardly to be expected in a candidate. Victims of Marfan's syndrome or Marfan's Disease are tall, thin, with long thin fingers and toes whose muscles and joints are so relaxed that they are sometimes referred to as "spider" men. Other abnormalities in this disease include prominent ears, a highly arched palate and heart disturbances. The condition appears to run in families and was first described by the French physician, Antonin Bernard Jean Marfan. Stevens • Johnson Syndrome: Although this disease was first described by two American pediatricians in 1922, it is not necessarily a disease of children but may afflict adults as well. It is a striking disorder in which there is usually pneumonia accompanied by sores on the mouth and face. It is believed to be due to a virus and does not appear to be confined to members of any one political party. © I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc. Relax Each Day Or Facial Lines Will Reflect Fatigue By ALICIA HART NKA Beauty Editor Tension and weariness can do as much to mar natural beauty as neglect. If you're tense or overtired it's no surprise to see the strain reflected in your face. Circles may appear under your eyes, and even your make-up may look pasty and garrish. One way to avoid this trouble is to start now to practice good beauty habits. And how carefully you perform them is more important than how much time you spend at the job. Whether you are a homemaker or a career girl, you can spend the few minutes needed to preserve your good looks. How you wash your face is the first step. Work up a rich soap lather in your hands. Then rotate the suds over your face with your finger tips. The massaging action brings blood to the surface, and the suds remove dirt from the pores. Rinse with warm wa- te<r. then splash with cold. If your skin is dry, wash your face and then lubricate with baby oil. If it is oily, wash it more frequently to keep the pores clear of oil. You can save some valuable moments by co-ordinating your beauty routine with your daily activities. For example, while you're taking a leisurely bath, plan your schedule for the day. The housewife can work out menus or grocery lists. The career girl can plan her clothes for the next day at the office, and list the various errands she must do. A well-balanced diet and sufficient rest are extremely important if you want a clear, glowjng complexion. When you are tense and fatigued, frown lines, wrinkles and a drawn, unpleasing expression result. So be sure that you eat properly and get to bed early enough for a good night's sleep. To bring out your natural beauty, use good but simple cosmetic techniques. Brush your eyebrows daily, and fol- low the natural line when you pencil them. Pluck out stray hairs, but don't thin your brows to a pencil line. Use lotion or cream as a powder base. It will protect the pores and keep your skin looking smooth. And when you apply powder, be sure your puff is a clean one. With a little practice, you can learn to use a lipstick brush to give smooth, even color to your lips. And don't forget to use your favortie scent. It's a great morale booster. Daily complexion attention takes only a few moments out of your busy day. And you'll face each day happily, knowing that you look your attractive best.

Candy Makers Not Hurt By Dieters By MARTHA COLE WASHINGTON, tf-The candy people are very much conscious that the American people are weight conscious. But the popular drive to trim off fat isn't hurting business too much, in the opinion of a member of industry men interviewed at the National Candy Wholesalers Assn., convention here. "It's a factor, but I believe the industry is combatting it," said an exhibitor of chocolate candy. "We're not directly suffering." A colleague said he had lost 10 pounds in five years of working for the company and he ate candy twice a day- right after dinner and just before breakfast. An importer of hard candies said his company's sales had increased and he believed the American manufacturer was doing more business than he ever did before. Increased sales or not, a pamphlet distributed at the convention urged the candy men to get behind a new public relations drive to tell the candy, chocolate and confectionery story. "Candy consumption has increased slightly in recent years." the brochure said. "But this increase has been far below that of almost all other food products. It has lagged frighteningly behind the growth in population." It gave these figures; "For the period since 1952 the average American has consumed approximately lfi.5 pounds of confectionery products per year, a far cry from the 1944 high of 20.5 pounds and the current 26 pounds in the British Isles." An exhibitor of dietetic candy and sugarless chewing gum reported sales had increased "something enormous" over the past six years. His products, he said, were primarily for diabetics and "those people that feel they want to keep their weight down." The bubble gum men were all smiles. "Our sales grow as the child population grows," said one. "We have a rotating market."
