The Golden Rule Applies Here DEAR ANN: There's an unwritten law in our office that when a married' woman becomes pregnant she leaves before her fifth month. There's , - no rule for tlle I "i. unm arried on es i because you just don't expect it I I to happen to It did happen, ^however, to a \v secretary in her /30's and this is _ r"' i 'what I'm writing Ann Landers, about. She re, mained silent about her condition and continued to work though anyone could see she was expecting a child. She didn't wear maternity clothes, but kept to skirts and blouses in large sizes. When she became enormous the office manager asked her to take a leave of absence. Seven weeks later her baby was born. Three weeks have passed and the woman is back at work. She's about 35 pounds lighter, and acts as if everything is just ginger-peachy. We don't know if she has released the child for adoption or what. She hasn't said one word about what happened. We feel her behavior is outrageous and would like youi: advice on how to treat her.—WE GIRLS BEAR GIRLS: Treat her exactly as you would like to be treated if the same thing had happened to you. * * * * DEAR ANN: We live next door to a family which has five children. They range from 12 years of age down to 3. Our children who are 11 and 9 would rather be next door than home. They want to sleep there, eat mere and are often included in outings and excursions with the neighbor's children. I have told the mother repeatedly that I feel guilty, adding the burden of our two to her five, but she assures me she doesn't mind since our children are "a pleasure to have around." I fear, however, that the warm relationship is creating a delicate problem—religion. Our children are becoming more than casually interested in the religion of the family next door. My husband is afraid they may want to change. We have permitted our youngsters to go to church with the neighbors and they are fascinated with the ritual. Any advice?—B. B. C. DEAR B.B.O.: And what is the spiritual climate in your home? Do you and your husband take your children to worship? Do they attend Sunday school? If a child's spiritual needs are not satisfied at home it is not surprising that he would look elsewhere. I suspect you have been derelict in your duty and now the neighbors' religion is filling the vacuum. Get busy. * * * * DEAR ANN: Our daughter who is 21 will be a November bride. Please help me with this headstrong girl. Miriam has a wealth of chestnut brown hair with beautiful auburn highlights. Last year she had it chopped off and is now wearing a boy-bob. It looks simply atrocious. I can't figure out why she did it. Miriam's hair has always been her best feature. She has a prominent nose and her chin is not strong. Yesterday we went to look at wedding gowns and veils. When she tried on the crowns and caps I was sick. The girl looks like a monkey. When I told her she desperately needed hair to frame her face she insisted I was old-fashioned and that the cropped look is "in." If I send her picture will you please be on my side and say so? She won't listen to me but she will listen to you. —NEED AN ALLY DEAR NEED: Don't send the picture. I can visualize the problem. Only a beautiful face can afford the luxury of chopping off magnificent hair. Most women need hair to soften their features. A wedding crown on a boy-bob is not very "in" no matter how you look at it. I'm with you, mother. * * * * Confidential to VERY WORRIED ABOUT HIM: Only 12 years old and already a practicing psychiatrist? My advice is to leave his psyche alone or he may identify you with a symbol of "nosiness." Just continue to be friendly and kind and stop playing doctor. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of Alton Telegraph en- dosing a stamped, self addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Walters, Belleville, formerly of Alton, a son, Thomas Paul, 7 pounds, 9 ounces, 5:06 p.m. Sunday, St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Belleville.

Because of the time and distance involved, they will travel by jet and expect to take in Panama City, Central America and South America. They will visit Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina, covering about 20,000 miles and 32 days.

But she asks, is it a bargain when you don't know how much yardage is required and you buy a little extra only to find you didn't need it after all? She solved this problem with a little notebook, purse size. She copied yardages of her favorite patterns and cut a small sketch from the guidesheet to paste opposite them. At a glance she can pick the exact amount of material needed. * * * * Q. I'm making some silk shirtwaist dresses with convertible collars. I want to be able to button them, sometimes, at the neck with a tiny button and loop but do not know how to make a fine looking loop. The fabrics are beautiful and I want every finishing point to be perfect. Can you help me? —MRS. S. C. A. First, you must have thread to match the fabric. Use one strand of thread and knot it, hiding this knot between the layers of fabric. The loop must be large enough for the button to slip through but not large enough for it to unfasten easily. Following the diagram: Mark length of loop with a pin at each end (figure A). Bring needle out from between layers where the left end of the loop will be as you hold it toward you right side up. Place needle in the folded edge A Lovelier You at the right end of the loop and then bring it out again at the left. Do this several times, keeping the strands of thread equal in length. Work from left to right over these long strands, with stitches (closely spaced) passing the needle under the loop and over the thread with which you're sewing. Hold the thread down with your thumb and ease your hold on it as you draw up the stitch (see figure B). Do this until the loop is completed and fasten the thread at the end so it does not show (see figure C). » * * * Q. I'm new at sewing. Please define terms such as beading, emery and findings. • —MRS. S. P. A. Beading: A band made with slot openings. It is a type of trim used when you wish to pull ribbon through it for decoration. Emery: A dark, fine, abrasive powder used in pincushions to cleaji and keep needles and pins free from rust. Findings: Miscellaneous supplies necessary to make a garment, such as thread, zipper, tape, etc. These are also called "notions." * * * * Q. When do you use a flat felled seam?—Mrs. H. T. A. It's a good strong seam for sports clothes, shirts, little boys' clothes, pajamas and work clothes. to hear from her readers, and whenever possible wDl use their questions in her column, but because of the great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters.

You will be astonished by the number who walk with an awkward gait, with heels hammering the ground and toes that come plopping after. To merely call the performance awkward is to be kind, for it throws the entire figure out of line. The legs, even the prettiest, appear coltish. The rest of the figure, jolted and jerked svith every step, is certainly not improved. Perhaps we girls could take a lesson in walking barefoot from the South Sea Island beauties. How they do float along, seemingly without effort and surely without jiggles. To learn their secret, try this action: 1. As you step out, swing the leg from the hip joint, arch the ankle and extend the foot well forward. Those movements place the foot in a position from which the toes and heel can be lowered almost simultaneously to the ground, with the lightest touch. 2. When you lower the foot, let your weight flow from toes to heel. The sequences is, of course, a reversal of the one you make when wearing shoes. But, for the barefoot, it is the natural and graceful movement. 3. Concentrate on an even transfer of weight with each step and on a rhythmical pace. With practice, your stride soon becomes a glide. But although you never go barefoot, practicing the toe-heel action would prove beneficial, as It improves the curve and grace- abilities of the leg.

FRED rfy FEED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist Q.—Will you please tell me what type of soil to use in re-potting the house type azalea? Secondly, why do hydrangeas which are quite old bloom only occasionally, and if they are replanted, what time of the year should it be done? Can the plants] be divided in the replanting? ! Thank you.—Mrs. R. F. : Wiseman. A.—Azaleas should be f: potted in pure peat. You can buy small bags at most garden centers. Be sure azaleas never run dry. Best to plunge pot to top of rim on north side of house or under trees in full shade for the summer. Hydrangeas form their buds in late summer at the tip of this summer's growth. Most buds are kill- \ ed if temperature goes be-' low 23 degrees. A few of the j newer varieties bloom on; new growth (Nikko Blue).! Plants can be dug, divided j and replanted early fall or early spring. Q—I have a gardenia bush that I have been taking in every fall. Now the bush is getting too large to dig up. Is there a safe way to insulate it against the cold, and leave it out. all winter? Also, would you tell me what proper care should be given a gardenia bush? Thank you.—Mrs. William Yates. A.—No practical way I know of to insulate a tender plant over winter outside. Your plant could be cut back severly about Labor Day, dug and repotted two weeks later. This way, perhaps you could handle it another year. Or give it to someone who has a sun- porch. Gardenias like a top dressing of dusting sulphur once in a while, and plenty of water. Gardenias and camelias sometimes drop their buds for no apparent reason. Why, we don't know. Q.—What causes rose buds to turn yellow and never open up? Is there something lacking in the soil? Also my cabbage—some begin to head, then lower leaves begin to turn yellow and finally die. The leaves on my tomato plants curl up, too. Thank you for your information.—Mrs. Paul J. Grothans. \ A.—Sounds like a soil deficiency, a lack of phosphate. Try feeding your plants a fertilizer high in phosphate. Probably too late this year to do much good. If a tomato plant otherwise looks healthy, it's natural for the leaves to curl. Also, it's natural for the lower leaves to turn yellow. Next spring, give your garden spot some fertilizer high in nitrogen. ***** Send your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, in care of the Telegraph, and he will answer them in his column.
