Stitching Problems May Be Your Own Fault By PATRICIA SCOTT The way you handle your machine may be the cuase of many stitching problems. . . it isn't always the fault of the machine. * * * * Q. The strangest thing sometimes happens when I machine stitch. One day everything is fine, and then the thread keeps breaking at the eye of the needle. What is the cause?— MRS. H. L. A. You may have turned the needle in the wrong direction when you changed it, or you may have threaded it from the wrong side. Check your instruction booklet to learn these two procedures. * * * * Q. What can I do with darts that are very wide and others that are both wide and made of heavy material? They are bulky even after pressing and they show on the right side of the garment. — MISS L. F. A. If the dart is wide and of lightweight fabric, you can trim it to seam width as in Figure A. If the fabric is heavy, slash the dart crosswide one inch from the point; trim the wider end to seam width; then cut the edges apart up to the crosswise slash you made (Figure B). Press the edges open and shape the tip of the dart so it forms a small box pleat. Or, if you prefer, just press the tip to one side (Figure C). * * * *. Q. Can you tell me how to press chintz so it keeps its glaze and embossed cotton so it doesn't become flat? Many of my summer dresses are of these two fabrics. — MRS. C. J. A. With chintz, use very little steam or none at all and press on the right side. This helps keep the glaze. With embossed fabrics, pad your ironing board well. A turkish towel is good for this purpose. Use lots of steam and press lightly on the wrong side. 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 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 this newspaper, enclosing a long self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. © 1963, Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Mead Hits Them Where They Live This Time "Dudley, There is No Tomorrow!" "Then How About This Afternoon?" By Shepherd Mead. Simon & Schuster. $4.95. Yes, this is the Shepherd Mead who is a wacky wit and a witty wack, with another bell-ringer. Yes, he is taking the business and advertising world apart, as he did in "The Admen" and "How to Succeed ... etc." But this time his sharp (oh, so sharp) focus is on the place where those high (blood) pressure tycoons live. It is an expensive chunk of real estate on the North Shore of Long Island, called Cobb's Point. And this novel has an extra, added attraction. It has the flavor of a sophisticated sleuth story. Reminds you a little of those delicious old Nick-and- Nora dramas, except that the sports-shorts villians wear the latest mudras prints. The situation is that an abandoned railroad station (the tracks had been re-routed) sits on a strip of land that provides the only access to a wide, marshy area greatly desired by the real estate developers. If they get it, their mess of ranch houses will ruin the exclusivity of Cobb's Point. Hence a lot of money is at stake. The narrator (in a highly clipped, telegraphic and weird style) is Dudley Bray, a T- shirted, penniless creator who never has been able to decide whether it is art, writing or music that is his forte. He comes to Cobb's Point when he learns that the real estate man who had stolen his wife 10 years earlier was very dead—supposedly by accident. Dudley's adventures, in the midst of some charades by an inimitable pair of aunts and some japeries by a few of Dudley's artist friends, are told with all the deadly rationale of biting comedy. Don't wait. This will be a Broadway hit, but that takes time. Read the book first, then see if the stage show can be as funny.—Miles A. Smith, 2 Hour Service at Our Plant 1-Day Delivery Service On Ke(|ue»t MRS. NICHOLSON Timpe-Clark Nuptials Read Miss Lavetra Clark, daughter of Mrs. Mildred Clark of S18 E. Sixth St., and the late Charles C. Clark, was married to John Timpe last Friday in the parsonage of the Assembly of God Church. The Rev. Lloyd Shoemaker officiated, and a reception followed in the Onized Club. Miss Linda Calvert of Godfrey was the bride's only attendant. Best man was Paul Hodge of Alton. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Timpe of Holland Avenue. Betrothal Told In Shipman Mr. and Mrs. Clemence Alberts of Shipman are announcing the approaching marriage of their youngest daughter, Patsy, and Don Meyers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmo Meyers of Plainview. The wedding will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 21, in Shipman Methodist Church. Miss Alberts is a 1963 graduate of Southwestern High School. Her fiance is a 1959 graduate of Carlinville High School, and is an employe of Owens-Illinois. Mother's Helper by Heimonn & Pearson HOW LONG would it take for a high-chairer to tumble from his seat? No time at all. So, as .soon as your child is strong enough to sit in 'such a chair, always anchor him securely with a safety harness. You never can tell when your attention may be distracted momentarily or when you might have to be out of the room "for just a second." C 1763. New York Herald Tribune, Inc. Ann Landers Now It's Time to Return Dishes DEAR ANN: I noticed with interest your proclamation ot "Return Borrowed Book Day." I'll bet hundreds of books were returned to their 'owners as a re- : sult of that won- i derful column. And now, Ann, .-will you please proclaim a day i- for the return ' of borrowed '"^dishes, bowls - and pans? So Ann Landers, many w e 11- meaning people bring food to friends and relatives and that's the last they ever see of their containers. My muffin tin is gone and I don't know who has it. My two choice mixing bowls are floating around somewhere, not to mention my china casserole. I hate to phone friends and ask if they have these items because it seems so chintzy. So please, Ann, proclaim a day for the return of dishes, bowls and pans. Housewives everywhere will call you blessed. -MA HUBBARD DEAR MA HUBBARD: Paging all housewives. Today is the day to check the cupboards for odd dishes, bowls, pans, casseroles and containers of all sizes and shapes. Many women are reluctant to return these items—empty—so they procrastinate, and wind up keeping them forever. Take it from me, Girls, the owners would rather have them empty than not at all ... so get going. # # tf * DEAR ANN: Last week our 17-year-old son brought home a boy friend and asked if he could stay with with us until he graduates from high school next year. The lad is an A student, well behaved, attends church every Sunday and never runs .around. Any set of respectable parents would be proud of a son like this. His parents, unfortunately, are not decent people. The school counselor advised the boy to move out of the house. He had no place to go so my son brought him here. Our problem is that we are just barely making it financially. My 90-year-old father lives with us, and we have three other children. Is there any way we can make the boy's parents pay for his keep? They have not contacted him since he left home three weeks ago although they know where he is. Please advise us. —WANT TO HELP DEAR WANT TO HELP: The A Lovelier You Gossiping Boomerangs By MARY SUE MILLER It's no idle chatter that kind, generous thoughts bring a sbft glow to a woman's face. But, say to say, that beauty treatment is too often forgotten when we girls get together. Then how the gossip is apt to fly, and faces to lose their lovely light. But let's put aside the beauty hurt in unkind remarks. It is of small import, compared to the deep-down personal hurt. A woman belittles herself with every belittling comment she makes, however seemingly harmless. Eventually she is stuck with the damaging labels she sticks on her friends. For, like everyone else, she is judged by the company she keeps. You have to question her appeal if, by her own admission, she surrounds herself with unattractive company. Charmers attract charmers, male and female! No woman is expected to go through life with Stardust always in her eyes. But what a lovely sees, .thinks and feels should be well-dusted before it passes her lips. In discussing people she surely would avoid the bankrupt phrases, "I heard ...." and "She's nice, but. . ." The instant you hear those words, you know you are in for some distasteful half-truths and untruths. You become a doubl- ing Thomas. Just so, the arrows of gossip and innuendo fall to hit their target. Rather they boomerang on the archer and hit home. Lovelier Hands Do you have a hand problem? Send today for "Lovelier Hands," a booklet that covers every step in a quest for hand beauty. It tells how to keep the skin and nails groomed; how to overcome weak nails, polish chips, discolored knuckles, prominent veins, wrinkles; how to use the hands with poised grace. To obtain your copy, write Mary Sue Miller in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a large, self addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin. 0 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate school authorities should look into your community's foster home plan. Perhaps you can be paid by the county or the state if the boy's parents are not able to do so. If for some reason you cannot be paid PLEASE PLEASE keep him anyway. Few people have the privilege of performing a service so valuable. You could be his guardian angels. * * * * DEAR ANN: I was 12 years old when my parents explained to me that my real mother had died when I was an infant and that my mother was actually my step-mother. This came as a surprise but not a shock. My step-mother is a sensitive woman so I have never brought up the subject since and neither has she. My own children are now 10 and 11 years of age and I have never told them. Young children sometimes say the wrong thing and I'd feel terrible if they embarrassed their grandmother in any way. We do not live in the same city and the children see their grandmother infrequently. Do you think they should be told? Or is it best to leave sleeping dogs lie?—UNDECIDED DEAR UNDECIDED: There are no dogs around—just facts. And I see no reason why the children should not be told. They will probably show surprisingly little interest in the subject since they themselves are not involved. You'll wonder why you made such a big deal of it. * * * * Confidential to HEARTSICK: Time wounds all heels and he'll get his. Don't spend another minute thinking about how to get even. It's bootless and destructive. 0 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Weekly Food Review Packing July 4 Picnic Basket Will Be Easy By The Associated Press Packing a picnic basket for the Fourth o£ July will be simple with the wide variety of economy eating candidates being featured at supermarkets this weekend. For sandwiches, there are smoked hams, pork butts, cold turkey and roast beef. An inviting take-along dish currently being featured is fried chicken. For cooking at the scene, there are specials on a wide range of steaks, ground beef, spare ribs and frankfurters. Turkeys are selling for about 39 cents a pound in many shops as dealers seek to clear out frozen stocks to make way for fall arrivals. Beef prices have shown little sign of breaking out of the low pattern of recent weeks. Best buys are in round, chuck and rib roasts. One national chain offers bottom round at 69 cents a pound and top round at 75 in the New York area. Broiler-fryer prices run about 39 cents a pound but are featured at lower levels many places. Some Southwestern shops are tagging them as low as 25 cents a pound this weekend. Picnic vegetable offerings include low priced cabbage for cole slaw, fresh tomatoes, a variety of salad green, carrots, green onions and radishes. A star fruit attraction is the peach, budget priced now thanks to a crop that's almost one-fifth larger than last years. Also economical are watermelon, cantaloupes, honeydews and bananas. Sweet cherries are in short supply this season and prices show it. Best News for Cats since the Noose! «T KAT C? 1 FOOD •£* / ' a {»&yr<Sr PbffHa from the makers of famoiM Strongheart Dog Food!
