The "sloppy habits" you describe Go through me like a pointed jibe. "Achievement charts," so bold and blunt, Become a personal affront, And "inattentive," "careless," 'lax" Are parent-targeted attacks. Is it because the traits you tell Are obviously mine as well? By ELAINE WENDLER Comity Home Adviser Buyers of baby furniture will be smart to check first for safety features. One of the major check points is the paint. Because babies suck or chew on furniture, it's doubly important that the paint contain less than 1 per cent lead. Although lead poisoning occurs infrequently, it is serious. It can cause death or permanent brain injury. Most manufacturers of juvenile furniture make only lead-poisoning-free articles. However, the great danger is in using second-hand furniture that has been painted with miscellaneous types of paint. Many well-meaning people pay little or no attention to the type they use. Other points to check for baby's safety include crib and play-pen sides and strength of crib. Spindles or bars in a crib should be close enough together to prevent the baby from putting his head between them. In addition, where mesh has been used in playpen or crib sides, it should be fine enough no to allow a growing youngster to get <i foothold. A secure lock on high crib sides further protects the child until he is almost 2 years old. Parents should consider also, that cribs need to be strong enough not only for the tiny baby, but also for the growing child. You can test the strength of a crib by shaking it gently. When choosing a high chair, pick one that has well-angled legs to prevent tipping. And look for broad, firm straps on high chairs and balhinette tops that will hold but not irritate a squirming youngster. and Malalhian is a contact poison. Why is Chinese Elm almost immune to Dutch Elm disease and why don't Elm beetles bother American Elms? So many whys in this business. I have had several phone calls for remedy for poison ivy. A chemical called 2-4-5 T is very effective for this. Here we go again. It may be sold under different brand names, so when you buy, read the label and be sure you get. 2-4-5 T, and follow directions. Be sure you keep all insecticides out of reach of children. And please write, don't phone, your questions. FRED MISS GIBSON LVLES-GLBSOX Miss Phyllis Karleen Gibson and L. C. Lyles of Jerseyville have chosen June 15 for their wedding which will take place at the Southern Baptist Church in Jerseyville at 1 p.m. The Rev. Cleo Zinn, pastor, will officiate.

Fourth St. Wedding Plans Plans have been completed and invitations mailed for the marriage of Miss Carolyn Rogers and William Allen Roettgers. The couple will be married June 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Main Street Methodist Church. A reception will follow in the church social rooms. Miss Rogers is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carol V. Rogers of 2022 Park Ave., and her fiance's parents are Mr. and Mrs W. A. Rocttgers of 2719 Edwards St. Dr. Mr. Clausen: We congratulate both you and the Telegraph for your very fine column on plants, etc., and eagerly await you sharing your vast knowledge of growing things. Regarding amaryllis (for the house) I have read several articles, none of which shed any light on what to do after the blooming period in the winter months. Mine are still growing fine big leaves. Please tell me when they should go dormant, and does one water them? When do you get them out of the cellar and are they ever re-potted? CORA W. HUTCHINSON. Answer: Amaryllis, whether they bloom in house in January or April, should be kept growing as long as possible in order to put new strength into the bulb for next year's flower. Best thing now is to sink pot into ground outside in half shade, feed occasionally during summer and take into basement for rest before frost. If leaves haven't yellowed by fall, cut them off when you take pot in. Run dry until Christmas, then give a little water, and when flower spike shows bring pot into light. New bulbs are usually sold with all roots cut off. Such bulbs should be potted in smallest possible pot (usually a pot having a four inch diameter). This is to make sure you don't over- water them. Later repot into a six inch pot and leave plant in this pot size for several years, or until roots break the pot, which they will eventually do. Dutch grown bulbs cost a good deal more, but have better flowers. Dear Mr. Clausen: Last spring I planted a rambler rose, supposed to be two years old, and it has never bloomed. I was telling a friend about it and he asked if it has seven leaves on the stem and if every stem has seven leaves. He said any rose with seven leaves is considered wild and will never bloom. MRS. J. F. TANNEY. ' Answer: Established rambler roses bloom on wood from previous year's growth. (The new shoots growing this year will bloom next year, and so on.) Your plant has not had time yet to make enough growth, but should make enough this year to bloom next year. As far as the seven leaves, just forget it. It doesn't mean a thing. Send your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, In care of the Telegraph, and be will answer them in. Ills column. Please do not telephone questions.

Ann Landers For Better or Worse, But Not for Lunch DEAR ANN: I have a delicate problem and don't know where else to go for help. I can't discuss this with our clergyman ^or our doctor as we are well-known in the community and if this story got out my husband would be furious. We've been married 12 years and have five lovely children." I have part-time help, which is all I want because I believe a mother should Ann Landers, raise her own children. My husband owns a small but profitable business near our home. About a year ago he got into the habit of "dropping in" for lunch about twice a week. Now he's home for lunch five times a week and it's driving me crazy. I don't mind fixing him a sandwich and coffee, but he follows me around the kitchen with that come-hither look in his eye and when his mind is made up, it's made up. I love him very much, but 12:30 p.m. is no time for romance with three kids at home for lunch, the laundress in the basement, the doorbell ringing and me trying to get to a 2 p.m. church guild meeting. I want to be a good wife but I believe there is a time and a place for everything. Please tell me what to do. —FRANTIC AND EXHAUSTED DEAR FRANTIC AND EX HAUSTED: Tell your husband you married him for better or for worse but you didn't marry him for lunch. * * * • DEAR ANN: Our daughter is 19, lovely, bright and well- liked. She has had two years of college and is changing, I'm afraid, from an unspoiled, fresh young lady to a hard-boiled woman of the world. She told us last night that she takes a few drinks at school because everyone else does and she sees nothing wrong in it. She doesn't smoke but all the girls around her do, and she sees nothing wrong in that either. She works during the summer to pay part of her tuition, but we still must make sacrifices to see her through. I told her that unless she would promise not to smoke or drink she may not return to college in the fall. She says I am not being fair to her—that she must make these decisions herself and they must not be imposed on her. Will you please print your views on this so I can show them to her? I need some help with this headstrong girl. —TRULY WORRIED DEAR MOTHER: Here it is but when you see my advice you may not be so eager to show it to her. A girl of 19 is what she 11. Her pattern is set and you will not change it. If her training has been good you need not worry. If it has not been good, worrying won't help. Don't deny your daughter the opportunity to get a college education. Send her, with no restrictions. Quit nagging. Tell her you have faith and confidence and that you know sht will never let you down. © 1963, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Eustgate Plaza — Charge HI Just say "Charge It" at— THREE SISTERS Eastgate Plaza Up to 6 months to pay!
