SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN Seams to Me New Scarves Replace Kerchiefs By PAfRICIA SCOfT Triangular scarves with ties have taken the place of the old kerchief this year... happy day! They're absolutely charming in the many fabrics they can be made of, and certainly more comfortable. Here are three you can make for a start: Ruffled Gingham Check (Fig. B): Since this scarf is double, you'll need a piece of gingham check 21 inches square. For ruffles cut one strip 60" x 4&", and another 60" x 3". Also, 4 yards of White bias tape. To Make: Fold square in half so It is on straight grain. I prefer to fold it this way instead of on the bias forming a triangle so that It won't stretch across the top of the head when tied. As In Figure A, cut triangle so sides, are 15 inches long with folded edge 21". Bind one edge of each ruffle strip with binding and make narrow hems at short ends. Cut remaining strip of tape into two equal strips. Stitch bias strips closed for ties. Gather each ruffle, strip to fit scarf. Baste narrower ruffle to wider one, raw edges even. Fold scarf right sides together. Stitch ruffles to edge of right side of scarf on one layer with ruffles towards body of scarf and all raw edges meeting, Place- tie strips along inside o fold and stitch ends to scarf edges. Now, stitch side edges of scarf together (catching in ruffle edges and tie ends) leaving a 3- inch opening at one edge to (urn. Turn to right side and slip-stitch opening closed. Press, Printed Sailcloth (Klg. C): You'll need a piece of sailcloth or any sturdy cotton 21" x lOMs". Also 2% yards of bias tape. To Make: Cut triangle as in Figure A, with 21-inch edge on .straight grain. Bind two 15- inch sides with one continuous strip of tape. Divide remaining bias tape strip in half and pin its center point to center of top edge of scarf, so tie ends are equal. Bind lop edge, and then stitch tic ends closed. Double Organdy Embroidered Scarf (Figure D): You'll need a piece of white organdy 21 inches square. Also 1% yards of colored grosgrain ribbon. To Make: Fold organdy in half with fold on straight grain. Cut triangle as in Figure A, and cut through fold for two separate triangles. On one triangle embroider about 40 tiny rosebuds or daisies. Or buy embroidered flowers and tack them securely, . scattering all over. Place triangles right sides together. Stitch the two 15- inch sides. Turn to the right side and press. Fold grosgrain ribbon in half lengthwise and press. Pin center point of ribbon to center of scarf top .so tie ends are equal in length. Bind top edge of scarf with ribbon and stitch both tie ends closed. There are many variations to this scarf. If the fabric is lightweight it's wise to make the scarf double for body. Use embroidery, decorative buttons, bows, etc. for trims and gay ribbon for ties. Make them to match dresses and sportswear and you'll be in fashion.

For your copy of "Fifteen Gifts You Can Make," write to Patricia Scott in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long, self addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover printing and handling costs.

RAGSDALB JR. ; WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal; housing officials are studying how to step up pressure on home ailders to voluntarily end discrimination against Negroes. If no answer can be found, i*' may lead to a broadening of j President Kennedy's anti - bia? housing order to include conventionally-financed as well as fed- oi'allv financed housing. * In early test cases, officials! have had little luck in persuadinc j builders who don't come under the! order to sell to Negroes. | Gradually, however, more and more builders will come under Hie order and officials lor! that, to some extent, time is on their side. But recent mass protests, in both the North and the South, indicate thf.t the Negroes are in no mood to wait. Although the disturbances haven't directly Involved housing so far, there is a feeling that this will come before long. New regulations will be issued arly next week affecting some phases of urban renewal. The over-all question of how to vork more effectively under section 102 of the housing order, •vhich calls on federal agencies 'to use their good offices and :ake other appropriate action permitted by law" to wipe out discrimination in housing not covered by the order, is under consideration by the President's Com mittee for Equal Opportunity in Sousing. So far, there have been no com' plaints filed with the Federal Sousing Administration under the portion of the order where sanctions can be applied. The FHA says this is because very little of this housing is on the market yet. There have been five complaints under section 102. Two of them nave involved Belair, a sprawling subdivision in nearby Maryland built by William J. Levitt and sons, Inc., one of America's largest home builders.
