The dye rinse, a product designed to be used on the hair as a rinse or shampoo, is the most recent development in hair dyes. These products contain a variety of coal tar colors and give a fairly wide selection of colors. They are reasonably safe, but an allergy can occur at any time. A patch test should be made prior to each use of the product, because allergic reactions may develop after the product has been used for some time. At least 24 hours should be allowed to determine the results of the test. Although these dyes give a fair degree of color to the hair, the distribution of the color is sometimes uneven and subsequent shampoos may wash out some of the color. These products should not be used to dye eyebrows or eyelashes. Oxidation Type The oxidative type dye is by far the best type of dye from the cosmetic point of view. Properly used, it should cause no adverse effects. However, this type of dye should always be applied by a professional. These products have a greater tendency to cause adverse reactions than do other types of hair dye. A patch test should be made at least 24 hours before each application. These dyes also should never be applied to the eyelashes or eyebrows. A Lovelier You Take-Off Tactics By MARY SUE MILLER If you wish to lose weight, you have to cut calories. You know it, and there's no getting around it! But another factor, equally vital to a successful outcome, escapes many reducers. It is simply this: how to cut down without self-torture. Knowing the answer makes dieting quite painless and that, of course, is what keeps you with it. You really could lose without a pang, if you used these tactics while calorie-cutting. —Pin down the reason you want to lose. Is it for the sake of health, appearance, or morale? Keep the reason in mind all the time, for that is the best means of fortifying your determination. —Promise yourself a prize for Josses. It can be anything that you have dreamed of doing or wearing, if you had already been slim. —Take these appetite-appeasing shortcuts: Divide your calorie allotment near-equally among three meals; eat at regular hours; make a point of varied menus, attractively served; eat very slowly; make use of the foods packaged for dieters; keep the so-called "free foods" handy for snacks—bouillon, raw vegetables and sugar-free gelatin. —Get enough exercise. Work- ouU burn up calories and insure satisfactory distribution o f weight as losses occur. —Give your skin and hair extra amounts of attention. That way, you feel a pampered darling while reducing. And you end up looking like one! Painless Reducing To lose up to 10 pounds without a struggle, send for my leaflet, "Painless Reducing." No rigid dieting, no heavy exercising, no discomfort! All advice is sane, safe, easy-to-take and effective. Address your request to Mary Sue Miller in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin! O 1863, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate There are hair dyes which can be used safely at home and do not require patch testing. These are the so-called progressive dyes, solutions of lead or bismuth salts. However, they will produce only a limited variety of colors, none of which closely resembles the natural color of hair, and they require several applications. Some henna products fall into this category. A true henna will produce only a reddish shade, and not all hair will accept henna. The progressive dyes differ from the newer coal tar dyes in that they color the hair by coating the hair shaft, rather than by penetrating the cortex, or inner layer, of the hair fiber. Bleaching: Bleaching causes damage to the hair shaft but does not affect future growth or inherent physical characteristics of the hair. Skin reactions may occur in some persons, but reported cases are few compared with the large number who bleach their hair. Bleaching damages the hair because the hydrogen peroxide must penetrate the cortex of the hair shaft, whom the hail 1 pigment is located. This often le;ives the hair dry, brittle, and more absorbent. Bleached hair takes up dyes in a rapid, irregular way and is especially vulnerable to ingredients in some permanents. Bleached hair is also curl-resistant and difficult to manage. The extent of hair damage depends on several variables, one of which is the degree of bleaching. For example, the extreme degree of bleaching necessary for platinum blonde hair usually makes the hair dangerously brittle. Methodist Circle Elects Mrs. Campbell Mrs. Clyde C. Campbell was elected president of Dorcas Circle of First Methodist Church Tuesday during a dessert meeting in her home at 1228 Rock Spring Terrace. Others elected were Mrs. F. L Bromaghim, vice president; Mrs. C. C. Hanna, secretary; and Mrs. Forrest Cook, treasurer. The circle will meet next on Sept. 10 with Mrs. Clyde Auten. The Grower's Art Bone Meal Good Feed for Peonies By FRED CLAUSEN Tfli-griipb Garden Columnist DEAR Mr. Clausen: We have seven peony bushes. The three smallest ones bloom but the four larger ones have buds that gradually dry up. Please tell us what can be done for the ones whose buds dry up. FRED —Ruth G. Lippert. Answer: Well established peonies should bloom if not planted too deep. Check and see if crown of plant is more than two inches deep. If so, scoop away dirt, feed liberally with bonemeal, this fall, and give plants a couple of sprays of fungicide next spring when leaves develope. Dear Mr. Clausen: I would like to know if one should cut off tops of peonies. If so when. Mine don't bloom. I have sandy soil. Also why don't Iris bloom and when should they be planted? — Mac M. Conner. Answer; Peonies should be kept growing until fall. If top is cut off during summer, no bloom next year. Feed them bonemeal this fall. Iris, too, should keep their leaves until fall. In full shade they bloom very poorly. They are tolerant to a wide variety of soil, Dear Mr. Clausen: I think your column is a great addition to the paper, and it will help many to better care for their flowers. After jonquils, narcissus and lily of the valley bloom, how soon is it safe to cut the tops? How often should they be dug and reset? Can peonies be divided when they grow large? If so, when and how? —M.C. Answer: All narcissus (daffodil-jonquil) should keep their leaves until they turn yellow. Then "mow them off." Lily of the valley leaves stay pretty until fall, so never cut them off. Don't transplant lily of the valley as they are good for a lifetime. Feed them in fall. Narcissus in the right place can be left for many years. Transplant in fall if necessary. Big clumps can be dug, divided and re-set in late summer or early fall. Dear Mr. Clausen: I have a pin oak which has little round balls attached to the leaves. At first they are green and later on turn dark brown or black. I have been told it is a parasite and again that it is the seed pod. Could you tell me which is correct? If it is a parasite what can be done for it? I would also like to know what it is that makes the stems of my flowers hollow and the plant wither and die. I have broken the stems open and can find no worm. It happened to plants in the past and this year to the snap dragons. Answer: There are several hundred species of gall wasps that lay eggs on different plants, causing a "gall" to form. Galls are not quite understood by science. They do little if any harm. Learn to live with them without worrying. Sometimes I find the same stem probJfm on some of my flowers and don't know what causes it. Sorry. Dear Mr. Clausen: We have an eight year old Chinese elm tree that for some reason is dropping its leaves to quite an extent. I am wondering if it could be the elm disease, or could it be a sveather condition? Many thanks for your advice. —The John McKinneys Answer; Many trees develop more leaves in the spring than the tree can support in dry weather, so trees often drop some leaves when dry weather comes. Chinese elm are very resistant to elm disease. If your tree is a seedling which came up voluntarily, it may be a cross between American, elm and Chinese and thus be prone to disease. Dear Sir: I read your articles in the Telegraph each week and they are very interesting. I wonder if we could use "alsonite" on hot beds instead of glass. And if we can get it in clear flat sheets. — W. G. Meng. Answer: I am not acquainted with "alsonite". However there are many good substitutes for glass and many are used. If light weight material, secure well in stormy weather. Many commercial greenhouses use glass substitutes for temporary structures. Dear Fred: Something has been eating down the leaves of both my early spring lettuce and my Swiss chard. There are no signs of insect infestation on them. Some of the leaves just get pecked full of holes or chewed down short. My second planting of lettuce, only 15 feet away from the first, appears to have escaped so far. The growth of both has been luxuriant. —Paul S. Cousley Answer: Flea hoppers and leaf hoppers eat small holes in many plants. However, plants always outgrow the small damage. Lettuce and Swiss chard damage, I guess, is rabbits or wood chucks. Likely your first'planting was at the edge of the garden, near weeds where bugs overwintered. Please mail your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, in care ol the.- Telegraph, and he will answer them in his column. Please do not telephone his home.

Ann Landers Visitor Will Be Aware That She's Not Welcome DEAR ANN: Ten days ago my husband wrote his annual breezy, full-of-hot-air letter to his sister in Phoenix. He casually mentioned it would be nice if their daughter Ellie, age -18, could come for the summer and help in the flower shop. . Three days later we got an airmail letter saying Ellie 'would love to and she'll be on the first bus fol- , lowing her graduation. Dick is flab bergasted. • He says he never Ann Bander*, dreamed she'd take him up on it. Also, he isn't sure now he has a job for Ellie. He never discussed this with me, although I am the one who would have to feed her, entertain her, chauffeur her and Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Basden, 2513 Delia Ave., a' daughter, 7 pounds, 1 ounce, 1:09 p.m., Tuesday, St. Joseph's Hospital.

Wonderful as a topping for apple pie, apple puddings and many more dresserts. Use the rest of the cream for the coffee to go with the dessert and enjoy yourselves! make sure she had a good time. Dick goes fishing every weekend and takes our sons. I must stay home with a 13-month-old toddler so my weekends aren't exactly vacations. And I'm 41 years old t'boot. Dick says he hasn't the heart (he means guts) to rescind the offer. What shall I do about this mess? —CRISIS DEAR CRISIS: Since Dick hasn't the heart (or the guts) to unwind the invitation then you must do it. If this girl is not welcome, she'd feel it sooner or later. So you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. My advice is don't—and be damned. « * » * DEAR ANN: My husband has two sons by a former marriage. He gets the kids every summer for eight weeks. Please settle something for us in advance. The boys are 9 and 11 years old. They are high-spirited and full of vitality, but they are obedient and I enjoy them thoroughly. The only point on which my husband and I disagree involves the refrigerator. The boys are in and out of it all day long, helping themselves to cold drinks, fruit, snacks, whatever they see. At mealtime they pick at their food because they are not hungry. I've told my husband I am opposed to this, but he says it is part of a happy childhood. His mother was very stingy about food and he and his brothers were punished if they were caught in the ice box. He made up his mind this would never happen to HIS children. I suppose he does have a point, Ann, but so do I. Will you settle it? —SECOND WIFE DEAR WIFE: There's a big difference between being stingy about food and allowing kids to eat all day long. Set a snack time midway between lunch and supper and tell the boys they may help themselves, To allow children to eat continuously and ruin their appetites for a balanced meal does not make for a happy childhood, nor a healthy one either. * * » * DEAR ANN: A shirt-tail cousin moved to this city several months ago.

You can't tie people up anymore and expect them to work for you alone unless you hire them full time.
