Especially my mom and dad. I know it isn't easy to bring up a family, but it isn't easy to be a kid either. I would like to let my mom and dad know that I love them 'the way they ai'e and I really don't want them to change. Yes- •terday I lost my temper s o m et h i n g terrible and said some things I didn't mean. I called them unfit par- Ann Landers, ents. If anyone is unfit it's me. I'm so mad at myself for what I said I'd like to bite off my tongue. Although I am only 13 years old I know very well the best friends kids have are their mom and , dad. From now on I'm going to control my big mouth and show them how much they mean to me.— SORRY NOW. DEAR FRIEND: Thank you for writing. I am withholding your initials and city, even though you asked me to print them. I'd like thousands of parents to think perhaps your letter was written by their own teenager. I'm sure it could have been. DEAR ANN: Five married couples used to take turns having the gang over once a week. We women sat and talked after supper while the men played cards. It was enjoyable but we had to give it up because the 'men never knew when to quit. It was too difficult for us girls to party until 2:00 or 3:00 a:m. and then get up the next morning and do our housework and chase after young children. Now the men have their card games and the women stay home, but they STILL do not know when to quit. And it's worse. Last week Clifford came home at 6:30 in the morning. Yesterday it was almost 8:00 a.m. One of the women claims we shouldn't gripe. She said, "We at least know where they are. They could be doing worse." I say if a man wants to do worse he will. I hate for our children to see their father coming in at such disgraceful hours. Last week the milkman saw him. Do you have a solution for this?—THE JOKER IS WILD. DEAR MRS. JOKER: You girls made a big mistake when you dealt yourselves out. Reactivate those man and wife get-togethers—starting at your home. After two or three evenings, bring up the question and settle on a sane quitting time. Encourage the consistent win- On the House By ANDY LANG (/P) Newsfcaturcs It is estimated that seven million families move from one city to another every year. Of these, about 70 per cent must move because of job transfers. A handful of companies have the facilities to give these transferred employes full assistance in taking care of the countless problems involved in selling their old homes and finding new ones. The other workers must find help elsewhere. One of those who has the unusual job of giving such help is Diane C, Drake of St. Louis- yet she never sees any of -those who benefit from her knowledge! Diane is known as a relocation counselor and is connected with the American Institute of Marketing Systems, a kind of nation - wide clearing house for families on the move. When special, personalized housing problems must be solved, Diane gets the call. Mostly through correspondence, occasionally by telephone, she goes about the business of matching needs with realities. Must Have Porch A typical recent case: a man made good in his Midwestern home town and was promoted to a more lucrative post in Nesv York City. The house he occupied was in a nice, middle-income neighborhood where 60- foot elms shaded his front porch. It was a perfect setting for his aging mother, who liked to sit on the porch and watch the world go by, He insisted that his home in New York must have a front porch—and that it must be a new house. Diane knew that, in New York's residential sections, houses with front porches are in older neighborhoods. After a considerable exchange of letters, she was able to convince the man that a new house in a suburban development would solve his problem. The proviso that clinched the agreement was that the house have a rear patio, so that the man's mother could observe community life where it often takes place in New York suburbia — in the backyard. The three basic recommendations of Diane Drake for a family contemplating a move from one city to another are: 1. To the extent that it ^is feasible, a family should consider a home that is possibly substantially different in style from the one that it is leaving. It would seem more likely, at first thought, that a similar home would make the shock of dislocation more bearable. But a similar home invites comparisons, often of a nostalgic sort. A different, exciting new residence, however, provokes eager anticipation. Should Conform 2. A family should" understand that each community has its own characteristics and that the sooner a family blends into its pew background, the happier it will be. If this means living in a neighborhood where social amenities are different, don't resist change and risk being uncomfortable among your new neighbors. 3. While making the move, plan for the future, A three- bedroom house may have seemed ample at the origin city and might be sufficient in the new location. But why uproot the family again when it outgrows three bedrooms? A family-on- the-move should combine the relocation with a plan to provide for future needs. Are the members of your family pancake buffs? Then they'll probably enjoy a change from the usual syrup topping. Cream some liquid honey with an equal portion of butter and store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Let the mixture soften a bit at room temperature before serving. Social Briefs 38 Entertained on 'Isle of Zeta' Tiers to spearhead this campaign. You'll find them surprisingly receptive. The winners always want to quit earlier than the losers. * * * * DEAR ANN: We live about two miles from a shopping center. Every Friday my husband's parents do their grocery marketing out this way so they just drop in to see their little grandchild. They don't stay more than a half hour but all the same it upsets me to have them just pop in Hke that. Don't you think they should telephone in advance and ask if it is convenient? They are lovely people, Ann, and I do like them, but we have our own life and our own friends. Am I wrong to consider this an invasion of our privacy?' I'd like your opinion.—KEYPORT, N. J. DEAR KEYPORT: One of the Landers Laws for In-laws is that there should be no popping in unexpectedly. A telephone call is easy to make and it should be a must. I can see no evidence, however, that these lovely people are trying to "take over your life" or "interfere with your friends"—so retract your claws, Toots, and get your blood pressure back to normal. Your in- law troubles are plenty minor. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Keirle, 3170 Kingsley Drive, Florissant, Mo., formerly of Alton, a daughter, Neale Diane, 8 pounds, 1 ounce, St. Mary's Hospital, Clayton, Mo., July 4.

Certain markings are not explained because it is assumed that a woman is already familiar with them. So here are a few instructions that will help you on your initial project. First, you'll find that the pattern is for but half a garment. Therefore, it is cut through two layers of fabric unless only one piece is required (such as for a waistband). Next, you'll probably notice that some portions seem strange. But they're as they should be: 1. Bustline across front is wider than across back. 2. Normal neckline is deeper in front than in back. 3. Armhole of blouse front is deeper than' blouse back. , 4. Waistline of skirt is wider across front than back. 5. Hipline is wider across back than across front. 6. Length "of skirt at front is shorter than back and sides. • Here are some of- {he printed markings you'll find on patterns and what they mean: Place on Lengthwise Straight of Material: Place this line parallel to a selvage along the lengthwise grain. This is< your guide for cutting the garment on the proper grain. Margin—No. 1: An extra mar gin to make cutting easier. Do not cut this off before pinning pattern to fabric. Darts—No. 2: Darts are indicated by two lines which meet to form a V. Or, a dart tuck (as on the shoulder) indicated by two lines that do not come to'a point. Notches—No. 3: Guides to show which seams are to be joined. Always cut Notches so there is no guesswork as to where two seams should be joined. Seam Line—No. 4: This is where the seam is stitched. Seam Allowance — No. 5: There is usually % inch between the stitching line and cutting line. This space is called the seam allowance. Cutting Line—No. 6: This is the printed line on the outer edge of the pattern and the line on which you should cut. Place on Fold—No. 7: You'll see this along the center line where a front or back (bodice .or .skirt) is to. be cut in one piece. This fold must always be on a straight grain. Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, HOW TO ALTER. YOUR DRESS PATTERNS, which gives complete instructions for altering so ' that finished garments will fit perfectly. For your copy of this guide to correct fitting, write to Patricia Scott in care of this newspaper; enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 25c in coin to cover costs of printing and handling. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Church Notes Main Street Methodist Women Plan Breakfast The Woman's Society of Christian Service of Main Street Methodist Church will close its current year with a breakfast at 9 a.m. Thursday.
