By MARV SUE MILLER The teen who needs to lose u eight has my sympathy. She is beset by temptation on all sides —by hefty school lunches, by the soda-fountain crowd, and very often by a home-grown theory that a growing girl requires mountains of nourishment. Let's see how much food is necessary for her. A healthy teen should have three balanced meals a day, totaling 25UO calories. Yet it is estimated that many girls take in some 2000 excess calories daily in meals and snacks. The result, of course, is gross overweight with such side effects as skin problems and emotional stress. What a state for a girl to be in! And what a chance for mother to give her help! By clever management on mother's part, daughter could lose ten pounds this summer and still be properly nourished. Just how is the trick turned? First off, concentrate on serving big helpings of low-fat foods. For example, at dinner fill the plate with a goodly serving of lean meat, fish or fowl; with substantial-looking vegetables such as whole carrots, quartered cabbage, baked potato, Then add low-cal pickles and naiads. That way the meal ap- rs to be and is satisfying. Secondly, make a point of low-cal snacks—fruit, sugarless soft drinks, dieter's candy. You will find dozens of dodges at market. Above all, don't make a "thing" of the project. Let the results do the talking. After losing a few pounds, Miss Teen will not need cajoling to stay with it. © 1803, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Car Wash The YWCA Senior Hi Club will have a car wash Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kingston's Service Station, East Alton, it is announced by Miss Sharon Brewster, president. DEAR ANN: My wife and I have had a continuous argument for lii years. We decided it WHS a b o u 1 time we asked somebody to settle it once and for all. You have no idea w h a t trouble wo have run into because of this one misunderstanding. When my wife Ann Landers, tells me on Thursday that we are going to her mother's house "next. Saturday" I get the idea she means the Saturday of the same week like "the day after tomorrow." This is one of those crazy things that probably bugs many people. Will you be good enough to print my letter and your reply in the paper? It would help us a lot.—IN A DAZE OVER DAYS. DEAR DAZE: According to Webster's Third International Dictionary "next" means: "Nearest. Nothing intervening, adjoining in series, immediately following." So, if on Thursday your wife tells you you are going to visit: her mother "next Saturday" it clearly means the day after tomorrow because that's the nearest Saturday—immediately following, with nothing intervening. * * * * DEAR ANN: We are having the same family fight for the third summer in a row. Our son is now 11 years old and since he was 9, I (the father) have felt that Delbert should go to camp —even if only for two weeks. Delbert does not want to go to camp and his mother says there is no reason we should insist on it. I wouldn't mind if the boy did something constructive during the summer—but all he wants to do is stay up half the night watching TV, sleep late in the morning and then nag his mother to take him swimming or to a movie in the afternoon. My wife says the youngster should not be forced to leave home because it might make him feel rejected. She says he could be emotionally damaged for life. Your advice is wanted. —THE SINGLETON. DEAR SINGLETON: Your wife is raising a vegetable instead of a son and you must share in whatever happens to the boy—if you permit her to get away with it. Pre-teen children should not be allowed to make such decisions. They are equipped with neither the judgment nor the maturity to make the choice. Camp would give the boy what he needs most—discipline, responsibility and healthy competition with other boys. This year don't ASK Delbert—TELL him he is going to camp, and then send him. He may surprise everyone — including himself— and have the time of his young life. * ti * * DEAR ANN: I've been dating this man for three years. I've tried four or five times to break up with him but he won't let me. Whenever I tell him I don't want to see him any more he begins to bawl. He says if I drop him he will sell his car, quit his job, and become a bum. He talks about joining the foreign legion or getting on a freighter —or maybe just killing himself. I doubt that he'd go THAT far but I could never be sure. Yesterday my boss asked me to work late and finish some reports so he could take them out of town. I had to call my boy friend and cancel our dinner date. He began to cry on the phone and it took me 20 minutes to get him off. I want to get rid of him permanently but he won't let me. Can you help?—CHAINED. DEAR CHAINED: Translated into honest English your problem reads something like this: "I'd like to dump this guy but there's no one else in sight and I don't want to sit around alone night after night. He's a bore, but he's better than nothing." What this fellow needs is professional help. And what you need is the courage to face some lonely evenings until you can replace the cry-baby with someone more stable. * * * » CONFIDENTIAL TO OUT OF STEP: Nonsense. This is nothing to be worried about. The great philosopher Thoreau said, "If a man does not keep pace with his fellows perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer." * * * * Ann Landers will be glad Three's Company EDITOR'S NOTE: As every woman knows, men reporters are impartial and objective, as well as intrepid and fearless. But. once in a while news events strike chords in their essentially home-loving souls and they are moved to write from their own experience. Such a story is this one from a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter. By EDDY OILMORE LONDON AP)—Jacqueline Kennedy, is awaiting her third child. Queen Elizabeth II has three already. Three-children families are definitely fashionable. Almost status symbols. In less exalted circles than royalty and the White House, three children are practical, comforting, in a way economical — and gloriously confusing. TAKE TRAVEL: Today's automobile age is tailored for the three-kid grouping—mania and papa in the front seat and the trio of offspring buttoned up behind. Four children make a station wagon, or a second car, almost imperative. A pair of children rattle around in the back seat. Or fight. With three there isn't room to fight. They just pinch, a less serious form of mayhem. Five or more children and you'd better think about a bus. Three children are perfect for international air travel—dad and mom on one side of the aisle, well segregated for sleeping arid out of soup-spilling range. On the ocean liners, father and mother in one stateroom and the trio fits well in an adjoining and connecting compartment. CLOTHES: Two children can mean a saving on the bills—but only if they're the same sex. With a trio, you're bound to have two of the sex, and maybe three. If you have three boys or three girls you've achieved the perfect hand-me-down situation. Even with two of the same sex, and one of the other you're not badly off. But after the third, things get rather threadbare, and you've got to start the clothes cycle all over again. BABY CARRIAGES: Out, of a carriage used by two successive children you get good mileage. With the third, the mileage is perfect, for the carriage is well broken in and the springs suitably mellowed. TELEVISION: Two people seldom like the same programs. If you have but one child, outvoting junior comes under the heading of bullying. With two youngsters, you can only reach inconclusive split decisions. With three, you've got a deciding vote and a variety of opinions. TOYS: No. 1 nearly always outgrows a toy very quickly, leaving it for the other two to struggle over, This builds muscle. FOOD: When it comes to food, children are very imitative. Teach the first one to eat the right things and the others usually follow suit. Especially when it's two against one. HELP: By the time you've got three children, the eldest is usually willing, even anxious, to help mother, because it shows that he has reached a stage beyond dependence. The eldest of three children is a natural top sergeant. He or she takes great pride in seeing that the other two carry out parental instruction. BABY SITTING: After a few years, No. 1 invariably becomes old enough to take care of this task. They often do it willingly, for it allows them to stay up late. I could go on, but it's time to get home to my three children. —All girls. t Moose Women Mrs. James Stroud was enrolled as a new member in the auxiliary of Alton Women of the Moose at their meeting Tuesday in the Alton Moose Lodge.

What can I do about kick pleats to eliminate the very wide bulky seam allowance that goes all the way up the back seam? I prefer a pleat rather than a slit because you can't see your slip as you walk.— MRS. C. P. A. You can make your kick pleat with an extra piece of fabric inset behind the pleat, and then trim the seam allowance above the pleat to a normal width. Following the diagrams, stitch the back seam down the skirt to the pleat. Baste along the seam line from the start of the pleat to the hem (Fig. A). Press seam and pleat open. Cut a piece of fabric the size of the pressed open pleat as in Figure B, and fit the inset in place, with the right side against the wrong side of the skirt (Fig. B). Baste the side raw edges of the inset to edges of the pleat, being sure not to catch the skirt. Stitch basted seams, and press, but do not open them. On the outside of the skirt, stitch diagonally from center of pleat on either side, or stitch across top of pleat. si * * * Q. I'm going to a wedding in late June and I plan to wear a sleeveless silk dress with slim skirt. I've always worn short gloves or those that go to a tiny bit above the wrist, but some- how they • look corny. What is the proper length to wear?— MISS H. P. A. I prefer the eight-button length. They're not as formal as the longer ones and much more stylish than short ones. * * * # Q. Every so often I start stitching on my sewing machine and suddenly there is a thud and everything seem to jam. The wheel won't turn and I find globs of thread either in the bobbin or on the underside of the material. What could cause this?—MRS. 0. M. A. Several things. 1) Check the top tension and see if it was threaded correctly. 2) The top tension might be very loose . . . if so, tighten it. 3) Some thread might have already begun to gather in the bobbin because you have taken a few stitches to start, without the material under the needle, or, the threads might have gathered because of No. 1 or No. 2. If your balance wheel is really jammed, rock it back and forth gently to dislodge the threads, Or take a pair of tweezers and pull out the threads from the bobbin. * * * * Miss Scott is always glad to hear from her readers, and. whenever possible will use their qquestions in her column, but because of the great volume of mail re- Yn Y ceived duily, she cannot answer individual letters.

It's hardly cause to turn vegetarian, however, because rises have not been great and the prices of many beef cuts are still low. Also, bi'oiler-fryers and baking hens are in plentiful supply and turkeys are being featured widely. Greatest rises have been posted by pork products, as the seasonal flow to market continues to abate. Prices of many fresh cuts have reflected this jump. Cured meats have been slower to react, however. At one national chain, for instance, pork chops are up 6 College Notes Miss Beverly Pybas, daughter of Mrs. William Pybas, Thies Apartments, has returned home from University of Missouri where she has completed her junior year.

Young Moderns Don't Be Summer Weekend Borrower By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer A young weekend guest should be prepared for the obvious, if not the inevitable. But many young people borrow from their hostesses from the beginning to the end of their visit. A check list made in advance will help get the right articles into your suitcase. And try to remember what you forgot to take on other visits. A week before your trip list all the things from curlers to slippers that are part of your daily routine. A hair dryer may be a cumbersome thing to take, but if you have the kind of stringy hair that won't dry with curl otherwise, take it along. That's better than sitting in your room for hours waiting for your pincurls to dry. Don't forget your shampoo. It'll not only save your hostess' guest soap, if you resort to that, but it'll likely be easier on your hair. There's the question of your legs also, so pack your own razor, instead of depending on your hostess' brother or husband to supply one. There are long-handled ladylike razors packed in trim travel cases. Sandal styles make it important to keep your feet and toes in good shape, but don't wait until you get away for the weekend to spruce thm. Tak wha yousae end to spruce them. Take what you need for touch-ups. And If you have corns or calluses, take the proper foot aids with you for emergency use. Few girls forget daily essentials such as lipstick, if they use it, and powder. It's the occasional stuff that slips their mind —sunglasses, suntain lotion, raincoat and headcover. Take cleansing tissues out of their box and pack them in a neat roll. And don't forget toothbursh, and paste. It is the last packed usually, and easily forgotten. When your holiday includes playtime and social visits, prepare for the varied occasions, even if you are only a weekend guest. Week-End Specials! PRINTED Arnel Jersey Yd.
