Stamps in the News By SYD KRONISII (AP Newsfcaturcs) Women fliers in the United States, striving for greater recognition in view of recent Soviet achievements, will be using the issuance of the Amelia Earhart slamp as a springboard for nationwide attention. The Earhart stamp will have its first day ceremonies at Atchison, Kan., on July 24. . The Ninety-Nines, an international organization of more than 1,700 licensed women pilots, will participate in the commemorative stamp celebration. As a tribute to Miss Earhart, who was the first president and who named them for the number of their charter members (99), are planning a "fly away" with the cooperation of the Federal Aviation Agency, the United States Post Office Department and the Atchison Chamber of Commerce, The seven charter members who have been flying continuously since the organization was founded in 1929 will take off at dawn /l ' om Atchison on July 24. This "fly away" will spark a chain reaction that will blanjjet the capitals ol America with official Ninety-Nine cpcjiet covers. The cost ol these beautiful first day cacfojjs will be $1 each, The enflfe proceeds re ceived from the sale of these cachet covers will be turned over to the Ninety-Nines for the Amelia Earhart Scholarship Fund to further women's education in aviation. Collectors who wish to receive such covers and at the same time help a noteworthy cause may send their money orders lo Gimbels' Slamp Department in New York City or to the headquarters of the Ninety-Nines at 210 W. 55th St. in New York. Jacques Minkus, who heads the Gimbels 1 Stamp Department, was asked by the Ninety- Nines to participate in this venture because of his cooperation with Amelia Earhart in the philatelic phase of her famous, flights and because his stamp departments are located in cities all over the United States. Official flight covers can be purchased at any of the Minkus stamp departments until Aug. 3. The Republic of China has issued a set of two new stamps commemorating the first anniversary of the "May Exodus" in which thousands of people escaped from Communist China to Formosa, seeking freedom and survival. The purpose of this issue, reports the World Wide Philatelic Agency, is to focus world attention on the people of Formosa and the evils of Communism. One stamp shows a weeping girl who successfully escaped to Hong Kong, but was forcibly deported back to the Chinese mainland. The other stamp depicts a mass of refugees struggling to reach the border. Each stamp also features a silhouette of the ffhinese mainland and the itjlana'ol Formosa. Annual 4-H Club Achievement Exhibits of county 4-H members are being judged today and tomorrow in the annual county achievement program in Trinity Lutheran Church, Edwardsville.

( GREAT BRITAIN The people of Britain are essentially a combination of Ro- manized Cell, Anglo-Saxon, Dane and Norman • French. Great Britain is a beautiful country and we found the people extremely helpful and friendly. Many times they went out of their way to see that we would got on or get off the current metro, (underground train system). Tea is served at the proper hour, even if you are at the theater, or opera. They seem not to be too happy with heavy sauces on their food, such as the French have. Espresso Coffee Craze London, like the rest of Europe has been invaded by the espresso coffee craze. My husband I never could understand how anyone could ruin a cup of coffee as they do with espresso. And it became progressively worse as we traveled throughout Europe. Tea, however is not to be excelled anywhere in Europe—England certainly ranks first in good tea. Colored and white sugar (very coarse), brown sugar, and lemon is served with the tea. We were given the impression in England we would find the horrors of boiled cabbage, unidentifiable grey meat, and indigestible half-baked puddings, but this was not true. We had delicious English roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and a blueberry custard out of this world. Breakfast was cominental and consisted of porriage, eggs baked with sausage, bacon and half a tomato. Dry toast, butter and delicious jam of course tea or espresso coffee. English love their • kippers also for breakfast. These are herrings which are smoked in a special way and are eaten for breakfast or supper. The Banbury tarts and tea cakes were delicious at Banbury, England. Actually the best we tasted throughout Europe. Steak and kidney pie is quite a favorite of the English, as is cornish pastry, jugged have, Irish stew, Welsh rarebit and Lancashire hot pot. Perhaps you would like to try your culinary skill on the Banbury cakes recipe. Good luck! Serve it with a "spot of tea," at 4 p.m. and you shall be quite English! Banbury Cakes 1 recipe flakery pastry. 1 tablespoons butter. % cup currants. 1 tablespoons candied peel. 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs. 1 tablespoon brown sugar. 1 tablespoons rum or brandy. Vu teaspoon mixture cinnamon and grated nutmeg. Roll out the pastry to about Vi inch thick and cut into rounds 3 inches in diameter. For the filling, melt the butter and stir in all ingredients until well mixed. Place a spoonful on each round of pastry and fold up, pressing the edges together. Roll out into oval shapes and cut 3 parallel gashes in the center of each one. Put on a greased baking tin, brush with water aid bake in a hot oven (400 degrees F.) for 30 minutes, or until delicate brown. Sprinkle with castor sugar (coarse sugar) and put back in the oven for a few minutes. Flukey Pastry 2 cups flour. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons fat or butter and lard mixed. Va teaspoons lemon juice. Pinch of salt. 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water. Mix salt with the flour and sift into a bowl. Divide the fat into four parts and rub one quarter into the flour at atime. Add the lemon juice and enough water to mix to an elastic dough. Roll into a long strip on a slightly floured board. Spread another quarter of the fat, cut into small pieces, down two-thirds of the way of the pastry. Fold the pastry into three parts, starting from the end portion without the sprinkling of fat. Press the edges of the pastry together and roll out lightly. Repeat the process twice with the remaining two portions of fat then leave in a cold place for about an hour. Finally, roll out to the required shape and use. College Notes Bruce E. Klosterhoff and Jessie Lyon, both of Godfrey, attended a two-day orientation program for prospective freshmen students at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, July 8-9. Store-bought doughnuts usually taste best when they are reheated before serving. Ann Landers Kisses Vs. Moustache DEAR ANtf: My husband hns a handle bar moustache of which he is very proud. He keeps it neat and enjoys it because people who never noticed ^f him before no- vtice him now. The trouble is Shis moustache 'i hns given me a i rash under my e and on my n. The itch•** ing drives me ^ crazy and the t^ doctor says I Ann Landers, will have the rash as long as my husband has the moustache—unless I stay away from him. Also, the wax my husband uses on his moustache has a sickeningly sweet odor which nauseates me. I am not the nagging type. I mention things once and that's the limit. He knows the problem and shows no sign of doing anything about it. Yesterday he casually announced that he has no intention of cutting off his moustache when the centennial is over. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. TICKLED BUT NOT LAUGH-ING. DEAR TICKLED: Ask your doctor to phone or write a note to your husband explaining the 'situation. Then tell your husband you are willing to compromise and remain friendly until after the centennial. If he doesn't cut the moustache off after the celebration tell him he can choose between his moustache and your kisses. 1)1 # ft * DEAR ANN: Our son is 16 years old, a fine student and an obedient, respectful boy. After dinner last night his young friend who is exactly the same age came over to the house. I could see quite promptly that the young friend (whom -I will call Doug) had been drinking. He was talking louder than usual, slurring his words and behaving in a generally uncoordinated manner. I came right out and asked Doug if he had something alcoholic. He proudly replied, "Yes, my father 'always offers me n highball when he has one. Tonight I had several." My husband and I were dumbfounded. Then he added nonchalantly, "On the way over here I almost fell off my bicycle." My husband believes we should order our son . to break off his friendship with Doug before he picks up some bad habits. Your views are invited. -MAPLE LEAF MOTHER DEAU MOTHER: Don't order your son to break off his friendship with Doug. He may then feel compelled, out of n sense of loyalty, to defend his buddy and stick with him. Just keep impressing on your son that you have faith In his integrity and good judgment. Let him know you are confident that he will never disappoint you. Teen-agers have a truly magnificent way of living up to their parents' high opinion of them. • DICAK ANN: The other evening my mother-in-law and I attended a civic banquet. At this particular affair there were six women seated at the speaker's table. After the dessert my mother- in-law, who is up in years, called my attention to the fact that five of the six women at the speaker's table had very poor manners. Why? Because they "painted their faces in public." For years I have powdered my nose and applied fresh lipstick while at the table. Is this wrong? Sometimes the ladies room is half a block away, or on a different floor. Will you comment please? No doubt others would like to hear your answer—W. T. L. DEAR W.T.L.: It is in perfectly good taste for a woman to powder her nose and apply lipstick at the table. Hair-combing is out, of course, and so j£ eye-lash curling, eye-lining, fingernail repair work, and other little beauty tricks which should be reserved for the boudoir—or the ladies room. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Weekly Food Review Foods This Weekend Are Varied, Abundant By ASSOCIATED PRESS All bul Ihe mosl fastidious shoppers should find whatever food buys suit their tasle and pocketbook in the nation's markets this weekend. Fresh fruils and vegetables, for one Ihing, are nearing a peak of summertime abundance and variely. The broad range of fowl and meat cuts thai has prevailed recently con- linued. Prices on produce generally are tending lower, following the seasonal pattern, but shoppers likely will find prices creeping up a bit on Iheir favorite beef roasts and steaks. One national supermarket chain is advertising lower prices in the New York area or pork chops and some other SATURDAY, JULY 20th KIWANIS AUCTION! meats. The Department of Agriculture weekly survey found broilers and turkeys attractive buys in several sections of the country. In the fruit line, peaches, bing cherries, bananas, grapes, strawberries and watermelon were said to be in ample supply most places. Also, new apples, cantaloupes, plums, and sweet cherries near growing areas. Fresh vegetables were being featured — cabbage, carrots, green beans, cucumbers, lei- luce, onions, beets and sweet potatoes.

But she asks, is it a bargain when you don't know how much yardage is required and you buy n 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. How do I make the stitch used for hand-worked buttonholes, also the squared off corner at one end?—Mrs. B. K. ' A. Leaving the thread unknotted, bring your needle up to the tip of the buttonhole, and about % inch from the cut edge. Figure 1: Before you make the next stitch, form a circle with the thread by flipping it a bit to the right, then up and around to the left. Hold the lower strand of the loop down with your left thumb until you start to pull the stitch up. Place the needle under the cut edge and bring it up next to the starting point. Pull the stitch up, drawing the thread away from you. A purl should form along the cut edge of the buttonhold. Do this, making stitches all along one side. Then you radiate the stitches at the corner and stitch along the opposite side of the buttonhole. For the bar (figure 2), make two or three straight stitches from the edge of the first stitch and the last stitch. These stitches should be twice the length of the stitch on the buttonhole and should run across exactly at the'button- hole tip. Figure 3 is finished buttonhole. * * * * . Q. I'm getting married at the end of September and want to start making my gown and the dresses for my bridesmaids. I have my heart set on velvet for the bridesmaids but a friend claims it is too early for that material. Who is right.—Miss J. H. A. It isn't too early to wear velvet. But September is a tricky month and it may be very hot. If you decide on velvet, choose a style that is as cut-but as is permissible and with short sleeves. # * * * Q.

The rest can be cold—frosty cold—and be prepared early in the day. * & Salmon steaks,' ready-to-serve potato sticks, crisped cucumber salad, bread-and-butter fingers, lemon ice and espresso coffee could stand as an example of a light, inviting meal—on paper, that is. The reality depends on delightful and imaginative service. For the meal exemplified, this might mean garnishing the fish with Ihin slices of htvrd-boilcd egg and flaked parsley; serving the ice in cups made of hulled orange halves; and then pro-' senting the art work in a table setting worthy of it. By test the most appealing setting for summer foods is either very pale or dark, and either monochromatic or played for maximum contrast—an all pink scheme for instance, or pink dishes on olive-green mats. Above all, settings and decorations must be uncluttered. and seam chiffon? I ruined a beautiful piece of the fabric because I couldn't cut it on a table. It kept moving in all directions.—Miss A. M. A. Here are some suggestions. Cover the table with a sheet to keep the fabric from slipping. Baste but dp not pin. Use very sharp shears. The thread should be mercerized cotton and the machine stitches short (15-18 per inch). Stitch seams over tissue paper and tear away paper when they are completed. Always use French seams on the skirt. Use a very fine machine needle and a No. 9 hand sewing needle. 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. gl Publishers Newspaper Syndicate The Narups Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Narup of 2134 Marquette Drive have returned from a visit in Rossville, 111., with their son and daughter-in-law,' Mr. and Mrs. Donald B.
