TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN Young Modems Actor Seeking a Brainy Wife By VtVtAtf UROWN AP Newsfcfttures Writer Typical of modem young men who are getting more difficult to please, even as they protest they aren't, is 21-year-old actor Tommy Kirk. Just listen to Tommy try to prove that some young bachelors coitldn't care less whether a girl can darn socks, wash clothes or even cook. "I don't want somebody running around with her feet all bound up, bowing and scraping," he explains. "I want my wife to be so intelligent that there is nothing that I can do or say that she hasn't foreseen." But who will do those little ol' chores like feeding a big bruiser like Tommy? "Who cares," he says. "You can always get somebody to do those things." What He Wants Tommy knows what kind of girl he'd like. Exactly. Summed up. she'd: Look like Gainsborough's painting "Pinky." Be serene, humble and patient as Brutus' wife. As intelligent as Circe. (He had to go to Greek mythology for that one.) And, naturally, he knows she doesn't exist. He doesn't expect to find her. But he doesn't think he'll be miserable if he doesn't. "I'll probably wind up marrying the girl next door," he SILVER SPECIALS iSSi GUARANIttD SIIVIRPIATI by ONFIOA LTD Silvcumilln BO-PIECE SERVICE FOR 8 • KnlVM, • rofki, I Salad £ ••rki, I Soup Spaoni, 1 Mtar Knlf *, 1 Sugar Spa«n.

"Maybe somebody even in show business.'' But then he qualifies that. . . "All the things 1 hate in people are personified in show business people. They can be vulgar, ugly, terrible, even when they have all that is beautiful and hopeful. And I don't set myself apart. I have these faults," he says. He's Seeking Perfection But restless Tommy searches for perfection because "perfection would never bore me. Repetition bores me." (Like having a girl cook dinner every night). Tommy knows he is the outspoken, soul-probing, melancholy type typical of his generation. He has just finished two movies, "Savage Sam" and "Merlyn Jones." and knows he'll make a new one soon, "but the wardrobe girl will know I'm going to be in something before I do." he says. "I won't know until they tell me to pick up the airline ticket." fie wants to go on the Broadway stage. "It's the last remaining contact with an audience for a personal triumph," he says. "You fall or succeed mat way. I had a little taste of it in California. I have something and I want to give it in the best possible way." His career in his hobby. He doesn't approve of people who are scared of life, burying themselves in an occupation where they have no contact with other people." "Tf nothing else but because T am a ham, I want to be in contact with the world," he says. He doesn't approve of people like Albert Schweitzer, who "withdraw from the ring, sit back in an isolated spot and make dispassionate comments about mankind." Tommy feels it is right to criticize only if you are one of the mob. Cooking Cues Nowadays recipes often call for catchup and chili sauce, ta- basco and Worcestershire plus soy sauce, so it's a good idea to have these on your kitchen seasoning shelves. Advice to Homemakers What to Do Till Sitter Comes By ELENORB Z. FOX Associated Press WARREN, Pa. (AP) - One of the most formidable problems to beset suburbia is the dilemma of the babysitter. After the initial trial and torment of paying for the ad in the newspaper, the countless phone calls or letters in answer and the interviews with and without the children, perhaps you have settled for a kindly, grandmotherly type who assures you she will do her best. Naturally, the children adore her, since anyone even faintly reminescent of Grandma rates tops in their book. Then begins the series of traumatic experiences from which you may never recover. Time to Ponder Monday dawns, bright and early, tt is Club Day, Wash Day and also Cleaning-up-after-the- weekend Day. The alarm rings at 7 and you rise up. cheerful and fresh. Then you give the children their breakfast and ponder. If you're like me, there is only one of the bright-eyed darlings to be entrusted to the local school system, and that for a half a day only. The other two are underfoot. After consigning the children to the playroom (if you're lucky enough to have one) and the first batch of laundry to the washer, you are able to sit down to that second cup of coffee and reflect on the day's strategy. Burst of Energy It will be really necessary to give the house a thorough cleaning: after all. you don't want to have that lived-in look with the sitter coming. The kitchen floor will have to be swept at least, and the windows on the storm doors will have to be washed. . . Suddenly you notice it's 10:30 and nothing done! The whirlwind energy displayed by the housewife on sitter- day would do a vitamin manufacturer's heart good. At least, floor's swept, the furniture shining, the clothes neatly folded and put away. Our heroine prepares lunch for the family. Oldest son is now home from school and is proceeding to strew the hall and bedroom with assorted clothes, boots, scarves and mittens. Husband is due for his 20-minute lunch "hour" and the soup has begun to boil over on the stove. Worked Out System Lunch having been consumed in this congenial and restful atmosphere, it is now time to stash the dishes in the dishwasher COli joy of possession) and begin to dress for the Club. In our town Club means HAT and also GLOVES The system I've worked out by trial, tribulation and error is to begin by getting half-dressed, then, wearing a housecoat, wash the children and supervise their changing clothes. It is necessary, it seems, for them to be spotless when the sitter arrives so that they will make a favorable impression on the good woman. Then you hand them each a library book (coloring books at this point would be plain foolhardy) and begin to dress yourself. When SHE Arrives What happens is that two minutes later, you find the children standing around, supervising YOU. About half way through your makeup, or just when you have one eye half-lined, the doorbell announces the Long-Awaited One. The children go flying to answer and you are allowed Seams to Me to finish' lining the other eye alone. The pleasant, motherly creature belowstairs assures you in a hearty bellow that "everything will be just fine." and mentally you go over the checklist: house cleaned, floor swept, too bad I didn't get the windows cleaned, cookies for the boys on the countertop. ten and tranquilizers handy for the sitter. . . Then you can put on your hal and stagger off to your meeting, exhausted from the effort, but confident that you have lost neither caste nor face. Every week you vow that it will be different: that you'll assert your rights as an individual, instead of kowtowing to status and every week . . . Excuse me, I've got to mop the kitchen. The sitter's due in an hour. . . Slashed Opening Should Be Bound for Strength Now more appealing than ever... The Temptation of BEAUTYREST Rugs and Upholstery cleaned the safe way!

To finish the end. have right side of garment up. Fold the garment back so you see a little triangular tab at the end of the slash.

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. Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, "How to Alter Your Dress Patterns." which gives complete instructions for altering so that finished garments will fit perfectly.
