TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH JUL¥ 10,1963 At County Umbrella -Raincoat Project Shown in 441 Dress Review ti.v Trlt-Rtnjih Staff Writer You cnn linvo an umbrella that matches your raincoat, even If you have to make it yourself. Bettor yet, you don't have to be a veteran garment-maker to do the job, if the performance just turned in by a 13- year-old Greene County girl can be used as an indication. The girl is Ruth Ann Lemons of White Hal! and in the -1-11 Club clothing revue at Greene County Fairgrounds this week Miss Lemons, one of 170 modelers of self-made clothing, showed a tan raincoat, with pink and white stripes, umbrella to match, both self-made. This accomplishment will be exhibited by Miss Lemons at Illinois State Fair Aug. 13-15. The material used was tar- poon cloth, and there wasn't much to the job that a course in solid geometry couldn't cure, says Miss Lemons. "The big job was to cut the sections of the umbrella so they fit the stays, then sew them on so they still fit," she says. As far as Miss Lemons is concerned, it runs in the family. A sister, Rosemary, was one of the top Greene County 4-H Club dressmakers and, as a result, will exhibit her wares at the state fair. A cousin, Pam Massie of Beardstown, active in 4-H work in Cass County, also made a garment of slate fair stature. The Misses Lemons are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. James Lemons of White Hall, and all of the girls are granddaughters of Mrs. Earl Lambert of White Hall. The Family The Gro-wer 9 & Art Gardenia Plant Is Difficult to Grow Neivlytved Lamberts Visit Here Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lambert are guests of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Felix Lambert of 324 Grand Ave., East Alton. The couple was married on June 22 in Ridgefield, Wash., and the bride is the former Miss Judith Burrow. The bridegroom's parents and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Weber entertained for the newlywed couple Sunday at a lawn party in their clubhouse on Alton Lake. Twenty-five persons were guests. The marriage of the couple took place in Community Presbyterian Church at Ridgefield. The bridegroom is a graduate of East Alton-Wood River Community High School, and serves with the Navy in Marietta, Wash. YW Swim Classes Registrations will be taken on Tuesday and Thursday at the Young Women's Christian Association for a series of swim classes for children.

The pooi' lad said he never told lies that .would hurt anybody. He just di earned up sto- i ics to make himself see m more important 01 to make his hum-drum life seem more glamorous. Ann Landers. I was like that when I was a youngster and I took my problem to a wonderful clergyman. He "cured" me. Perhaps the same technique will work for him. Here it is: When you hear yourself weaving one of those fabulous yarns bring the story to an abrupt end with a ridiculous such as this: "And then I shot myself and died." Smile and add, "Beat that one if you can." This is an easy way of saying, "It was all in fun and I didn't mean it." —EX-PREVARICATOR DJSAU EX: Thank you lor the suggestion. It sounds workable and I hope (he boy tries it. * * * * JJKAIC ANN: Erma is a dear friend of whom I urn extremely fond. The standing joke about jier in our crowd w that she WM an .IVmouth baby and has been Jato ever since. Enjw lives near me. She doesn't cMv0 but I do, BO that means J pick her up several times a week. She's one of these disorganised ntople who, no matter how terraheafl she plans, she can't seem to get herself together on time. I have sal out in front of her house for as long as 25 minutes chewing my fingernails. Each time I tell myself 1 am never going to pick her up again. But she is such a lovely person I can't bring myself to do it. Last week we arrived at ;i funeral 20 minutes late. This week we missed the door prize drawings at the Ladies Aid. I don't remember the lime I heard a meeting called to order. I discussed the problem with my husband last night. He said, "This is one for Ann Landers." I agree with him. Can you help?—NO NAILS NANCY DEAR NO NAILS: Erma is not going to change unless she has to. And she doesn't have to so long as you continue to sit out in front and wait for her. The day you tell her that you won't stop if she isn't out in front—then do it—that will be the day when Erma pulls up her socks and gets herself ready on time. Until then—wear mil- tens. # * * * J)KA|t ANN: I once read in your column that you thought it was perfectly all right for people to take home from restaurants the food they were unable to eat at the table. What do you think of the following? We attended a beautiful wedding last week. The woman next to us had a large beaded handbag almost the sue of a shopping bag. After the dinner was served she wrapped up the rolls and put them in her handbag, .She then got herself four pieces of wedding cake, wrapped them in papeKnapkins and put them In the fag, "for the children." Later in the evening when the dancing started, she dumped all the nuts into a plastic envelope which she had brought from home. Then she grabbed all HIP candy. The woman didn't leave one edible thing on that table. When she noticed me looking at her she said, "1 hale to waste anything." What is your opinion of this'.' —GOGGLE-EYED DI'JAU (i()(i(!LK: The woman had no right to clean up the table. It would have been permissible for her to ask the hostess if she might lake an extra piece of wedding cake or two for her children, but it was downright boorish to swarm all over the rolls, nuts and candy, * # * # Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of Alton Telegraph enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope.

I have two gardenia plants five or six years old in water buckets, and they produce near 100 flowers apiece. I would like you to tell me if they should be put in sunlight or shady places, especially in blooming time. I keep them out of too much hot sun, but it seems the blooms get dark too quickly. 1 keep the two plants in the basement in fall and get them up in spring. I find they need much water, but in winter I just water them now and tlien. t also have a poinsettia. I clipped the old flower off after Christmas, and put it in the basement. II is growing fast. Will it get too big and bloom before Christmas? Should I clip it some time soon?—Mrs. Anna Kampwertli, Bunker Hill. A. My compliments to you for growing gardenias so well. Bear in mind that the horticulture encyclopedia says that the gardenia is one of the most difficult flowers to grow. The plants seem to like an occasional top dressing (a sprinkling) for common dusting sulphur (see last week's column). Don't think you need any advice. Just keep on the way you are doing. Cut your poinsettia back now A Lovelier You and go a little easy on water for a while or else the plant will be too tall for Christmas. » » * * Q. When do you plant strawberries and rhubarb plants? We have an apricot tree planted five years ago on good country soil. It blooms every year, apricots gel as big as small marbles, then all drop off, and we never have a crop. I have a locust tree over 50 years old, which has been losing a lot of leaves the six weeks. 1 found there are little black bugs on the stems and leaves. I have never seen them before. —A. Keller. A. Apricots often get caught by late frost (they certainly did this year.) This causes the fruit to drop. Also apricots have a tendency to bear heavy and light in alternate years. Some trees require cross-pollination to set fruit. If you value your 50-year-old locust tree, better hire a spray- man to come and spray your tree, as it is too big for you to spray with hand equipment. (And soon). , Rhubarb and strawberries can be planted both fall and spring. I prefer fall planting for both and much over winter. =,' * V * 1 read in the Telegraph that FRKD Sears Roebuck was going to "doll up" their new catalog. When i first came to the U.

Incidentally, spandex foundations and cotton or cotton-blend lingerie purport to have a built-in cooling system. In the make-up department, use the thinnest film of powder base and a peai-ly lipstick, neither pale nor strident; be sparing of powder and eye cosmetics. Overdone, make-up looks and feels hot. Besides it's apt to slip. For a lasting finish, even a delicate make-up requires setting. This is best done by compressing a water- dampened cosmetic sponge to the entire face after making up. Since a sleek hair-do spruces the appearance as nothing else can, secure yours with hair spray or pomade. Beware of confusing casual with toussle, where hair arrangements are concerned. A toussled head appears just about as cool as a shaggy dog, panting for breath.

BASTCAU PIAZA-QPEN 10 AM TO 9 CM Attic playroom should look like tin attic, even when decorated, says Chicago interior designer Robert Lindenthuh This is the attic room he designed for Laiiri and Peter Baird, children ol puppeteers. By VIVIAN BROWN" Al* N'ttU'.staaltircN Writer As long as children must play or sleep in an attic, why not make il look like an attic, the way they prefer it, suggests Robert Lindenlhal, Chicago interior designer. Linclenthnl put his fertile imagination to work, producing an attic playroom Unit is sheer delight. II was one of the "10 hfsl dressed rooms" designed fur per.sonnlil.ies by interior designers, a show sponsored annually by the National Design Center of New York for the Visiting Nurse Service. The playroom designed for Lauri. 8. and Peter. 11. children of tin' filmed puppeteers, Bill and Cora Raird, is suited to their own lives. "They are lively types who live surrounded by Hie pup- pel of Iheir parents. Most children live in the world of fantasy anyway, and if people would keep their minds on this fantasy when decorating a playroom or bedroom, they'd come up with new ideas for this make- believe world that: children love." Linclentlial says. Me designed mushroom-shape stools, 10 inches high and '14 inches wide, with stem bases. He put beds on pulleys at the ceiling. He made storage-box steps as a ladder. He put baseballs at the drapery tiebacks. He took an attic-type trunk, opened it on end and fitted it. with records, record player and television. He put. desks under the beds, spotlights at the ceiling, hung puppets on walls and ceiling. "As a boy, 1 always dreamed Stveet Adelines Alton Chapter of Sweet Ade- lines made plans Tuesday night for a program they will present on July 24 on the Charlotte Peters television show in St. Louis. The group met in the Eagles' Hall. The group also planned a musical program to be taped for a program on Radio Station WBBY on July 27. The chapter will sponsor a car wash from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Jack Keller's Service Station. It was reported that Mr. and Mrs. Dewain Nevins and son, Donald, and Jerry Geardy have returned from Toronto, Canada, where they attended the \SPEBSQSA international quarle'l: competition, July 2-6.

The same larlan plaid blanketing is used for fiebacks, blankets and chair upholstery. All materials are washable acrylic fibers. There is blue wall-to-wall carpel. Three little spotlights are on the desk, and a couple of flood lights are at the ceiling. "It is effective to give an attic room bright, sorl-of backstage lighting," Linclenthal points out. "The Bairds' entire house with its puppets reminded me somehow of being backstage, a wonderful different kind of attic! That's the reason 1 chose the attic theme for the play room." And if you have a choice between a basement and an attic for a play room, it is best to choose the attic, he says. "Basement rooms are dreary and depressing. Attics have more romanticism about them."
