British Male Apparel Goes U.S. By ANTHONY WHITE LONDON JP— A westerly wind of change in fashion is making British men look more like Americans. The Ivy League look, the crew haircut, the button-down shirt, the tall-crowned hat are a major fashion trend. Younger men are abandoning traditional British styles for the American line. "To younger men the United States symbolized success," said John Taylor, editor of the magazine Tailor and Cutter, the voice of Savile Row. "They're attracted by success—so they affect American style of dress." The trend is gathering pace fast—boosted along by expensive advertising campaigns. An advertisement by a chain of men's wear stores declares: "One of the smartest transatlantic fashions is the clean- cut, slimline look sported by American college men." And there's an illustration of a clean-cut young man who looks as though he's just stepped out of Brooks Bros. The swing is apparent mostly in shirts, hats and jackets. A London salesman said: "Almost half the shirts we sell today are either button- down or tabcollar types. The pinch-in collar look really has caught on.". There's also a rush on the tall-crowned, narrow-brimmed hats, which one men's wear stove chain has labeled "The Atlantic Look." "Television has a lot to do with it." said a salesman. "There's an American TV series Naked City where the policemen a)! wear hats like that. I must say I like them—but I prefer the bowler." ANN: Since you seem to have a mature and sensible approach to funerals for pels 1 would like your advice on a problem that came up just this week. My widowed mother lives alone in a large city. Her sole companion is my childhood pet, a rat terrier named Miss Ann Landers. Florabelle. A few days ago I received a long letter from mother saying that Miss Florabelle is almost blind and she is so feeble she can scarcely walk. The vet says she could go any time. Mother says she can't bear the thought of Miss Florabelle being hauled away by the garbage man. She wants me to bury her in my backyard. She closed with, "If you agree, son, I will be vastly relieved. I'll send Miss Florabelle's remains to you—air mail—in a suitcase." I loved that dog, Ann, but the whole thing gives me the creeps. Please tell me what to do. —BEWILDERED DEAR BEWILDERED: It is against the law to send dead dogs in the mail. Tell your mother that when Miss Florabelle goes to her eternal rest, she should call the humane society. They will come and get her and see to it that she has the kind of burial an animal should have. * * * * DEAR ANN: Together with other clergymen, I personally appreciate the sound and often humorous advice you give to those who seek help. I appreciate, too, that you frequently refer your readers to professional counselors. This is what I am writing about. Recently a woman wrote: "I have a delicate problem. I can't discuss it with our clergyman or doctor because we are well known in the community and if this story ever got out my husband would be furious." Perhaps the winter had had an unfortunate experience with a counselor who was not discreet, but every professional person of my acquaintance guards all confidences as a sacred trust. Your readers should be told that ethical counselors may not be compelled even by law to relate confidences, unless the person who revealed those confidences gives his consent., I do hope you will print this letter so your readers will feel completely comfortable when they seek professional counseling. —BATTLE CREEK PASTOR * t'f >X * DEAR PASTOR: Many thanks for writing. I would like to add that many readers to whom I have suggested professional counseling have written back to express their deep appreciation. * * * # DEAR ANN: We built a lovely new house two years ago. I work full time at an office job and have no help at home. When the house was brand new we had a big party and invited all our relatives and friends. My father-in-law asked if he could show his paintings at that time and offered to present the paintings to us as a gift. I said "Fine," and handed him the house key so he could hang the pictures for the big event. After two years he still has the key and our home has been turned into a gallery for anyone he wishes to drag through. He usually phones and announces, "The Thundering Herd is on the way"—then hangs up. I am fed up with all sorts of people tracking through our house. My husband says it would be rude and hurtful to tell the old gentleman to return the key and stop bringing people over. What should we do about this? —MRS. WALKED ALL OVER DEAR MRS.: It is your husband's responsibility to tell his father the open house is over. He should encourage his father to take the paintings back since obviously the old gentleman is proud of his art and wishes to continue to show it. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.

That's because their excess fat acts like a blanket and their excessive eating revs up the body's furnace—a combination guaranteed to produce an internal heat wave. It therefore makes good sense for everyone to eat lightly during hot weather. But for a heavy woman, it is the ideal time to cut those fat-and-heat- making calories. By doing so, she would feel better while getting to look her best. The most effective plnn to use strikes a nice balance between a high nutritional content and a low-calorie count. To follow the regimen, however, you must be a knowledgeable menu-planner. When you do not have the knack, it can be acquired by referring to nutrition and calorie charts. There's a rule-of-the-thumb that also serves well in concocting menus, but it should only be used when you are short of time or patience. Charted calculations are more accurate. Likewise the result of following them! The rule? Simply select five different types of food, each one in a different color. To exemplify with a dinner menu- red meat, yellow vegetable,' green salad, brown bread, purple plums, white (skim) milk. The varieties of types and Eagles' Auxiliary The need for foster homes in the area was emphasized by a guest speaker at the Wednesday meeting of Alton Eagles Auxiliary in Greenwood Odd Fellows' Hall. The speaker, John Seaman of the Department of Mental Health regional office in East St. Louis, stated that his office is anxious to publicize the need for foster parents and to contact organizations on the subject. It was announced that the next meeting of the auxiliary will be a birthday supper on July 24 honoring members with birthdays in May, June and July. DAV Auxiliary Plans for summer activities were made by the auxiliary to Disabled American Veterans, Unit Three, Wednesday evening in the American Legion Home. Mrs. Howard Bradshaw was appointed to head plans for an outing for junior auxiliary members. Mrs. Joseph Carnella was selected as a delegate to the national convention in Miami Beach. A letter from Miss Barbara Conrad was read to the women. Miss Conrad recently attended the Egyptian Art Camp at Du Quoin, where her poster on "Hire the Handicapped" was selected for state judging at Springfield. The selectee was sponsored at the camp by the unit. The unit will meet next in the Legion Home on Sept. 11. No meeting is planned for August. 'Guests Leave Mr. and Mrs. Leo E. Thomas and granddaughter, .Karen, left Thursday for their home in Canoga Park, Calif., after visiting relatives and friends in the area.

By VIVIAN BROWN At* Ncw»ffcfttnfe« Writer People with good taste on small home furnishings budgets have It made, points out Interior designer Yale Burge, They can find good inexpensive substitutes for just about any* thing their elegant neighbors enjoy In home furnishings. Two things In particular- wood panelling and authentic- looking furniture reproductions are changing the look of. the middle-class home, Burge says. "One can have richness In an inexpensive wall panelling that is hard to tell from Its costly counterpart. And furniture designs and finishes have become so authentic in appearance that even wormholes are reproduced," he says. The average consumer "has been subject to so much junk for years that manufacturers are retaining the talents of knowledgeable people in the Held of fine antiques and fine reproductions so ordinary Americans can enjoy the luxury of living with them, 1 ' he says. He illustrated by showing how to use a new teakwood ma- sonite, available in 4 by 8 or 4 by 10 foot lengths, in a library room. The authentic look is accomplished by photographing fine veneers to get the actual graining, he explains, and these are put on steel plate rollers and rolled out while color pigment is controlled. He uses it for book shelves in the same room. There are several ways to install it, he says. One way is with steel brads on wall surfaces, filling nail heads with putty. Moldings are tacked to baseboard and ceiling for finish. Or the panels may be tacked to % by 2-inch wood strips to the existing wall about every four feet. Corner moldings may be mitred. The panelling may be tacked right to house studs in a new home, eliminating plaster. / The material is fire resistant,, washable and. childproof.

"But if used in a child's room, where it-is extremely practical, it should be combined with brilliant colors—oranges and yellows." ' The library room designed by Burge had a beige and black checkered rug on the floor, a leopard ottoman and chair cushion.

COLEMAN, M.D. SHINGLES SHINGLES is an infection of the spinal cord that controls sensations of the skin. Its technical name is "Herpes Zoster" or "Zona", It does not affect the part of the spinal cord responsible for movement. The infecting agent is a virus. Anyone who has had shingles knows how painful and distressing it can be. Its Causes Shingles can occur without any apparent cause. Sometimes it is associated with pneumonia or tuberculosis, when the body resistance is low. Skin injuries or 'certain poisons like arsenic, may be accompanied by shingles. It is not uncommon in Hodgkins diseases and in the chronic debilitating diseases of the elderly. Shingles can occur at any age, but its greatest frequency is in males between the ages of 25 and 55. • Variety Of Symptoms A wide variety of symptoms may usher in an attack- of shingles, A general washed-out feeling of "malaise", chills, fever and intestinal upsets, so typical of other diseases, too, may be apparent in the early phases. The really distinctive features of shingles become apparent after three or four days, when clusters of tiny blisters become visible on the skin surface, generally at the waistline or on the chest wall. Not Fatal Slowly the blisters, following the course of the nerve, extend from the back to the front in a line parallel to the ribs. Strangely, shingles are almost always confined to one side of the body. This probably accounts for the popular misconception that, if shingles should encircle the entire body, it means inevitable fatality, This is false and utterly without foundation, for shingles by itself is not fatal, When the blisters begin to dry and become small scabs and the eruption completely disappears from the skin surface a neuralgic pain may linger for many months, No Special Treatment There is no specific treat- ment for shingles other than the control of pain. When underlying medical conditions are. suspected they are, of course, diligently treated. Some lotions and powders are soothing when applied directly to the skin. Cortisones, ACTH and antibiotics are used only after careful consideration by the doctor. Studied By Scientists It is hoped that the virus responsible for shingles will soon release some of its secrets to the dedicated scientists who are assidously tracking down the causes of this and other viral diseases. . The'last five years have uncovered tremendous new knowledge about viruses. Vaccines against the polio virus and the measles vir,us are only the beginning of the inevitable control of p viral diseases. . * * * * # RHUBAKB LEAVES "Hey, .Rube!" has always been the circus's call to attention. Now science is saying: "Hey, Rhubarb!" as a call to attention of the possible danger, of this tangy plant. For it has been found that the leaves of rhubarb contain high amounts of oxalic acid which, in concentrated form, is' toxic or poisonous to humans. The popular stalk of rhubarb is not poisonous. Mind you, even the leaves are not harmful unless consumed in large quantities. A safe rule is to discard the leaves and enjoy the stalk. These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body. All the hopeful new advances in medicine reported here are known to doctors everywhere. blues and greens," he says. Burge is particularly ecstatic about new furniture reproductions. "All the furniture in this new collection is being reproduced with distressed markings of the authentic old furniture — fly specks, worm holes, three or four layers of pigment that make it look real old." Burge made the master models of an 18th Century line of furniture that is to be mass produced. "If we can improve the taste levels of people, it will help everyone," he'says. In his opinion the cost of furniture should not be prohibitive. , BornHo: Mr. and Mrs. Gdrdon Ashford, 410 East Drive, East Alton, a daughter, 5 pounds, 6 ounces, 5:27, a.m. Friday, Alton Memorial Hospital.
