Mrs. C. J. Jacoby Mannerly Girls •/ Rise for Elders By MARY SUE MILLER When a lass fails to rise from her chair at the approach of an adult, her manners are showing. Girls must stand to be introduced, greet and take leave of their elders, if they wish to be thought mannerly. Even mature women show a lack of courtesy by not rising on occasion. If milady could only remember that all our social customs are based on consideration, she would be less likely to create awkward situations for herself. She then would not hesitate to rise upon the entrance, introduction or departure of both men and women whose years or position command respect. To exemplify, a woman of 40 years would not think herself past the age for standing to meet a man old enough to be her father. Nor would she remain seated to greet a guest of honor of either sex, regardless of age. Sometimes the "standing line" may seem to be rather finely drawn. For example, .should a woman of 25 rise for a woman of 40? Or a man of 50? Doing so would more likely embarrass than compliment them, unless deference accrues to thdr position. Thus tacl becomes a factor in Uie making of the gesture. When it is made, graciousness keys its charm. The action should corne from the heart, as well as the feel. It should be gracefully composed, neither a flying leap nor yet a reluctant heave-ho. Winning Manners To open a door on increased poise and popularity, send for our booklet, "Winning Manners." Topics included are Introductions, Invitations, Table Manners, The Charming Hostess, You —The Guest, Dating Manners, Formal Dances, Travel Tips and Tipping. Small Points, like when to wear a hat or check your coat. For your copy, write to me in care of the Alton Telegraph, enclosing 25 cents in coin, and a long, self addressed stamped envelope. <£) 1963.

V*^***"*The Family Prepare Dad's Steak The Way He Likes It By ELAINE WENDLEK Madison County Home Adviser On Dad's big day of the year you'll want to prepare one of his favorite dinners. At the top of many a list is sure to be "steak with all the trimmings." The steak must come from the broiler at just the degree of doneness Dad prefers. Here's how the experts do it: Set the oven regulator for broiling. Then place the steak on the broiler rack, and insert broiler pan so that the top of a 1-inch steak is 2 to 3 inches and a 2-inch steak 3 to 5 inches from the heat. When one side is browned, season with salt and pepper. Then with tongs turn the steak and finish cooking on the other side. Season and it's ready to serve piping hot. Steaks cut 1 inch thick require about 20 minutes for rare stage and 25 minutes for medium. Steaks cut 2 inches thick require 40 minutes for rare and 45 for medium. Here's a garnish to complement Dad's steak. It's called mushroom kabobs. To prepare them you need six-inch metal skewers. Allow one per person. Thread the skewers alternately with small fresh mushrooms, stuffed olives and small cooked onions. Brush the kabobs with melted butter or margarine. Then broil them only until lightly browned, from five to ten minutes. Recent Weddings Announced BOWMAN-KACZMAREK Don G.

I want a dress and jacket costume made with a hat in the same fabric and color. Should the dress be lined? The fabric will be either wool, silk, linen or sharkskin. Would a turban be right for this kind of costume?—MISS O.G. A. You can get by with an unlined linen or sharkskin, but if you really want a fine costume, line it. Do you look good in turbans? If so, then it will be fine. If not, choose another style. * * * * Q. You often give trimming ideas—little embroidery motifs on a pocket or on some part of a dress. I do not embroider but would like to learn a simple stitch that I can use that will serve the purpose. . . just so that I can use some of the cute ideas you show. —MRS. T. B. A. For simple, uncomplicated designs, I recommend the outline stitch (see illustration). To do this stitch you work from left to right. Bring your thread through to the right side of the fabric and then back-stitch % inch away. To make the second stitch, bring your needle up close to the last stitch, holding the thread to the left of the needle. Continue in this way to outline the entire motif. * * * * Q. I'm new in the art of sewing. Could you define the following terms so that I might better know what I am doing: crosswise, lengthwise, bodkin, cable cord and lap. Thank you. —MISS Y. B. A. Here are definitions— crosswise: a straight line or thread running from selvage to selvage; lengthwise: thread or lines parallel with the selvage; bodkin: blunt needle for threading ribbon, elastic or tape through beading or casing; cable cord: a rope-like cord made of several twisted cotton strands (used for corded-bound buttonholes, piping, welting and corded belts); lap: to fold one section over another. This is also the part of a garment that folds or extends over another. * # * * 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. In response to requests for reprints of her series on slipcovers, Patricia Scott has compiled them in booklet form, "How to Make Slipcovers." For your copy of this helpful booklet, write to Miss Scott in care of the Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long self addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Weekly Food Revieiv Beef Continues at Low Prices for Father's Day By ASSOCIATED PRESS Supermarket specials make it easy to stage a big father's day feed this Sunday. Beef prices continue to ride close to the lowest levels in years. Fresh pork prices have risen a bit, but such cured varieties as hams are still offered at low prices. And bargains abound in fryers and turkeys. In addition, there's a wide range of fresh vegetable offerings, and some treats like watermelon are at or near seasonal lows. At beef counters, one national chain is selling rib roasts at 53 cents a pound in its New York outlets—the lowest price the chain has charged since the fall of 1961. Other beef features include round roasts, hamburger and pot roasts. Smoked hams are offered in the Northeast by one chain at a range from 29 cents a pound for shank ends to 49 cents for the whole ham. Picnic hams and smoked butts are featured in the Midwest and Southeast. On the West Coast however, smocked hams have begun following fresh prices upward, with some items showing a rise of 3 to 4 cents a pound. Fryer chickens have held steady at about 30-35 cents a GLEANERS 2501 State St. Dial HO 2-1911 WANTED: EXPERIENCED HAIRDRESSERS Vacations with pay. Good working conditions. Free advanced styling course. Call: Fran Thompson, HO 5-9345 Today Is the Day to Return Books pound in most markets, making them very economical fare. In the Midwest, prices have slipped downward recently. The vegetable selection broadens steadily with the influx of local produce and the seasonal army of roadside sellers is moving northward. Among the items featured regionally are asparagus, yellow squash, artichokes, okra, blackeyed peas, snap beans, peppers and spinach. There are good supplies of carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, radishes, potatoes and tomatoes. Watermelon supplies are building toward a climax as Florida output overlaps the coming production from Texas, Alabama and Georgia. The outlook is for a crop even bigger than last year's. Cantaloupes, bananas, strawberries, peaches and, regionally plums, apricots and cherries are among the best buys in fruits. Miniature girdles with attached half-slips is designer Pauline Trigere's latest contribution to the undie world. As for slips themselves under sheath dresses, Miss Trigere prefers that ladies ignore them and keep their modestly instead with lined dresses. DEAR ANN: Something happened today that has made me thoroughly ashamed. Today was the day I decided to give fc,\ the library a p - to - bottom £ cleaning and ^polishing. This • meant taking all *the books off the { shelves. I ran '• a c r o s s three , books which I * had "borrowed." ______ One of these Ann Minders, books was personally autographed by the author and I promised faithfully to return it within the week. That was last summer. Then I got to thinking of all the books I had loaned to friends who had promised to return them—and never did. Millions of people read your column, Ann, and I'll bet thousands who are reading these words have some borrowed books on their shelves. Will you print this letter and proclaim today "Return Borrowed Book Day"? Thank you. —DEE TROIT DEAR DEE TROIT: Be it known that today, June 13, 1963 is proclaimed to be "Return Borrowed Book Day" in the United States, Canada and all foreign countries in which this column appears. And thank you for reminding me. I'd better return a couple of books myself. * * * * DEAR ANN: Our 11-year-old son has refused to do one thing in school all year long. I've talked to his teacher, the principal, and other mothers. I've consulted a psychologist, our minister, our • family physician, the eye doctor and the ear doctor. They all say he is healthy, normal, and intelli- , gent—not to worry, that he will study when he is ready. The question is when will he be ready? I might add he is rather large for his age, quite handsome, and the girls like him. He hates competitive games and soap and water. I've praised, threatened, bribed and pleaded. Nothing works. What do I do next? -STYMIED BUT HOPEFUL DEAR STYMIED: Why don't you try leaving him alone? This boy sounds like a kid whose mother is pushing him too hard. He may "be ready" when you take the whip off his back. * * * * DEAR ANN: I married this girl when she was 18. I thought she was mature because she had already finished two years of college, but I have learned that maturity and intelligence are not the same thing. We have had 18 months of what I will freely admit has been less than a perfect marriage. We seem to be arguing continuously about unimportant things. I have long suspected that my wife picks fights so she can have an excuse to get mad at me and sleep in the guest room. Yesterday I received a letter in the mail. It was from my mother-in-law. This letter listed all the things my wife is unhappy about. Most of the complaints had to do with our sex life. I was shocked. The letter ended with, "I don't expect a reply, of course. This letter is just to help you iron things out with Susan." What is a mature reaction to a situation such as this? —FRED DEAR FRED: If commmuni- cation between you and your wife is so poor that she must complain to her mother, something is drastically wrong. You both need professional counseling. All married couples have problems, and talking them out Ls healthy and constructive. When a couple can't talk, they should seek outside help. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of Alton Telegraph enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope. 0 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Cream a half cup butter or margarine with a quarter cup of honey; cover and refrigerate until you are ready to use this delicious blend as a topping for breakfast pancakes.
