THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINETEEN Seams to Me Know How to Cut Your Facings ' By PATRICIA SCOTT Guides for shaped facings are usually included in commercial patterns. But. just in case you decide to change a neckline, it's a good idea to learn how to cut your own. * * * » Q. I have a dress with a collar and I want to make a similar one but with a collarless neckline. How do 1 cut a facing (shaped to the neckline) since a guide was not included in the pattern? T don't want to bind the neckline.— MRS. B. A. A. Pin to paper the edge of the pattern piece to be faced. With a pencil, outline Ihe edge to be faced and along the seams and told lines next 1o it (top illustration). Remove the original pattern and finish drawing the bottom edge of the facing on the paper,, making the facing about two inches wide plus seam allowance (bottom illustration).

Mr. Creek is the newly appointed pastor of Ihe church, and came wheel and carbon paper and now the smudges will not come off. What should I do 1 ?—MISS J. S. A. Try dry cleaning, but don't be surprised if it isn't successful. In the future, use white carbon: when possible. Always test it on a scrap, using a steam iron to see if the marks come off. Use dark carbon only on muslin patterns. Chalk is best Mr other materials. * * * * Miss Scott is always glad to • hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her column, but because of the great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters.

I To Discontinue Silver-Backed Paper Money WASHINGTON (AP)—The silver certificate—the last piece of U.S. currency which is fully backed by a dollar's worth of metal—will be burned, but don't look for any big bonfires right away. President Kennedy signed a bill Wednesday providing for retire- tirement of silver certificates to free 1.3 billion ounces of the metal for use in coins. All dollar bills are silver certificates. There is also a relatively small amount of this type of currency in §2, $5 and $10 denominations. The dollar bill will become a Federal Reserve note, the type of currency which makes up the bulk of U.S. money. A Federal Reserve note is backed by gold at the rate of 25 cents in gold for each dollar of face value. Treasury officials said today the first of the new bills probably will be issued in October 1964, and it may require many months or years to replace all silver, certificates. 12 Selected Stocks Following are today's 1:30 p.m. quotations ol 12 New York Stock Exchange issues research has indicated are widely held in the Alton area, as supplied to the Telegraph by Newhard, Cook & Co., from its Alton branch office.
