Many stores are featuring the big birds as warehousemen seek to move out frozen stocks ahead of the fall influx. As a consequence, prices are attractively low in many areas. Best bargains are in larger birds. Smaller ones, however, lend themselves better to spit roasting outside on hot days. Red meat bargains are harder to find than they have been, but meat supplies are plenti- A Lovelier You ful and careful shopping will turn up many items on "special." One national chain offers smoked hams at 29 cents a pound for shank ends at its New York area markets. Over the country, other pork features include chops, roasts, spareribs and steaks. Hot spells have hurt local supplies of fresh vegetables some places, but most areas have attractive prices on cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, green onions, squash and potatoes.

Care for Aging Hands By MARY SUE MILLER A women's hands often age faster than her face. The reason for it is insufficient cure or activity. Never employed in an act more strenou.s than pouring tea, hands lose their youthful flexibility before time. Hard-worked hands prematurely wrinkle and yellow, unless they receive consistent beauty care. Once the hand complexion has begun to age, the only antidote is extra-special care. It begins with thorough soap- and-water cleansings. Not just a lick and a promise! Each cleansing must be followed by thorough lotion massage. Not a dab of lotion and a slapdash rub! The cause is furthered by a weekly treatment. An excellent one is soaking the hands in warmed skin oil, For another apply a facial mask, any of those designed for mature skin. Worth investigation arc two new types of treatments: a buffing lotion that planes and somewhat lightens the Kkin; a pearly finishing cream that renders existing flaws less noticeable. But remember, the flnost treatment Is only as good as tho line you make of it. And (HELP/WE'RE AGING- FAST) that goes double, when it comes lo treating hands that have not aged gracefully. Their tension and awkwardness can only be overcome by conditioning exercises, pel-formed twice daily for 10 minutes. A surefire routine follows: (1) Sit, rest elbow on chair arms, and raise hands to shoulder level. Repeatedly make light fists and stretch fingers wide; apart. (2) Extend arms straight forward and shake hands hard from wrists, (,'i) Extend arms overhead and, with maximum stretch, touch each finger lo thumb; let hands lull limp in lap. 0 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Bo/-?? to: Dr. and Mrs. Robert M.

(AP Wire Photos) Ann Landers She's Not Thrilled by Male Voice DEAR ANN: When will otherwise intelligent people learn that a single woman, living alone, is not necessarily des- i 'perate, wretched and crazy to f v snag a man? As a young di- F x vorcee I'm furi- ;ous with "big * hearted" friends , * a n d 'relatives , who hand out - my name and " telephone num- Ann Landers, ber without permission. And I shudder when well-meaning clods introduce me as "available, unattached" and "foot-loose and fancy free." In other words—"willing, ready and eager." These clucks never consider the possibility that I just might have friends of my own, or perhaps a plan or two. My job is interesting. I enjoy the world of books and music. I'm my own cook and housekeeper, in addition to holding a full-time job. There's no lime to be lonely. I resent Iho creeps who call and assume I'm thrilled to hear a male voice from the outside world. -SELF-SUFFICIENT DKAH SELF-SUFFICIENT: It's good to know that some solo females are content and "self-sufficient." I hope you realize how fortunate you are. Most bachelor girls, divorcees and widows would be delighted lo hear a male voice from the outside world. I knosv, be- causo they tell me. * * * * DEAIl ANN: My husband and I differ on a vital issue. Each of us feeLs the other is dead wrong, so there is no chance of a compromise. We've agreed to write this letter together and accept your decision. Jay listens in on my conversations on the extension phone. Ho frequently goes through my purse, lie opens letters addressed to mo if ho gets to the mail first. I resent this and have lold him so. He says I am off, that marriage should moan total sharing, that there should be no secrets. He insists that F EAST FOR CATS . . , ALL-CHICKEN when people have nothing to hide they do not resent being "listened in on" — or having their mail read first. He has said repeatedly, "I wouldn't mind at all if you did the same thing to me." Well, I never would because I wasn't brought up that way. I can't eavesdrop, or look in someone else's wallet, or read their mail. I'd feel like a sneak thief. Please settle this in the column. Thank you. —DIFFERENT WORLDS DEAR WORLDS: Intercepting mail, listening in on phone conversations and going through a purse is not "sharing"—it's spying. A solid marriage is built on confidence and trust. Snooping and eavesdropping suffocate the sense of mutual confidence that is essential to a healthy relationship. # # X! 3 DEAR ANN: Compared with some of the problems people write to you about mine is nothing, but I notice that some- times you print letters from people who are just annoyed. Well, that's me. I have lost my third good fountain pen since Christmas simply because I let someone use it "for a minute." Is it possible that people carry off fountain pens accidentally? It's hard to believe a person doesn't realize the pen isn't his when he puts it in his pocket—or in her purse. Is there some way I can hang on to my next fountain pen— short of refusing to let anyone borrow it? 11 hate to say no to such a simple request but I can't afford these losses. —NO PLUMA DEAR NO: The solution is so simple I'll bet you'll wonder why you never thought of it yourself. When you lend your fountain pen keep the cap. No one would put a pen in a pocket or purse with the cap off. (Obviously, this advice won't work for ball points without caps.) © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate A STRONGHEART PRODUCT when counting calories, you can. count on COUNT CALORF The low, calorie, full flavored frozen dessert with NO ADDED SUGARS...Sweetened with 3DB> 30% FEWER CALORIES...with the taste and texture of ice cream.

You're right that restless, bored children have a special talent for mining travel. But if you put a little effort and ingenuity into planning, the car trip can be downright enjoyable. What you do is give the children—especially if they're between 5 and 10—an opportunity to be creative. That's the advice of Mrs. Mildred Rablnow of the Child Study Association of America, a non-profit organization that for 75 years has devoted Itself to building sound parent-child relationships. First, Mrs. Rabinow recommends, "make the youngsters as comfortable as possible. Take along cans of soft drinks and snacks In case the children get hungry — as they always do when there Is no convenient place to stop. There's nothing as irritable as a hungry child— or adult, for that matter." Keep 'Em Busy "Next, plan to keep the children occupied. A bored child," Mrs. Rablnow points out, "whines and complains, making life miserable for everybody. You don't have to spend a small fortune on toys to keep your children entertained. A good way to help them be crea- tive Is to have them make toys out of the empty soft drink enns. They'll have fun making them and'playing with them. And if there's a sudden stop, the cans are safe and won I break." Here's how you do It. Take along some colorful paper, cellophane tape, crayons and some animal shaped balloons. The children can have their choice of making cats, rabbits, squirrels or any animal they fancy A large poster board, to put across the youngsters' laps, is' an inexpensive and Ideal (able for the children to use. A shoe box is handy to store crayons and tapes. Active t'lny Needed "It's also a good idea to include some type of activity that everyone can participate in during the trip. A singing session Is a good way to release some of the children's pent up energies," Mrs. Rablnow says, "and then even Dad can join in without distracting him from his driving. So bring along a song book and put it to good use." Don't forget that children need active play too, Mrs. Rablnow cautions. Pack a jump rope and a soft ball that the youngsters can use when you stop for a while during the day. A little forethought, a lot of patience and enthusiasm and you're off to a wonderful vacation—for everyone. Traveling youngsters can make this can-cat out of soft drink can, toy balloon, gay paper and tape. Seams to Me There's No Need for Interfacing Patterns DMI fVODUCT By PATRICIA SCOTT When buying interfacing for dresses you intend to launder, inquire about washability of the material. For instance, some fabrics, such as muslin and lawn must be shrunk first. * * » « Q. If interfacing or underlining is not called for on a pattern, and I wish to use them, how do I cut them? In other words, how do I make patterns for these pieces?— Mrs. J. B. A. You don't have to make patterns. Interfacing is usually used for collars, front facings, cuffs, etc. Use the same pattern pieces called for the outer part of these sections. Cut underlining from the same pattern piece you wish to underline. * * * * Q. What kind of thread is used, and how is the loop made to fasten together two matching buttons for a cuff link?— Miss P. T. A. To make such a link use heavy duty cotton thread or silk buttonhole twist. As in figure 1, pass the thread through the buttons several times. Then securely fasten the end of the thread and start covering the strands with blanket stitches. To make these work from left to right. Hold the thread down with the thumb, bring the needle around and draw it through the loop that has been formed. Cover the entire link with stitches very close together. Here's a "can-cat" that's guaranteed to provide lots of fun. The youngsters cover the sides of an empty soft drink can with gay paper, securing it with tape. Then, they blow up a balloon shaped like a pussy cat and knot it. They, attach it to the top of the can with double-faced tape. Now they draw a vest on the can and color it. A bow-tie can be made from different color paper and attached. For extra touches, the child may cither, add real buttons to the vest or draw them. ' A tail for the pussy can- cat is certainly a necessity, so the child should tear off a strip of paper, roll it around a crayon and hold it •for a few moments, so it will curl. Then one end of it is taped to the can. If a squirrel with curly hair is on the agenda, the curls are made the same way as the tail. You can also make a fabric link as in figure 2 by sewing the buttons to the ends of tape, cord or a fabric strip. Correction The \Vedding date was omitted in the story of nuptial plans of Miss Catherine A. McGee and Donald R. Rutledge in Tuesday's issue. The couple will be married at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday in St. Patrick's Catholic Church. * * * * Q. I've heard there's an easy way to make cafe curtains with scallops at the top. How much fabric do I need for the width and how do I shape the scallops evenly and quickly? Also, how do I attach the scalloped edge to the rod?— Mrs. T. H. A. Each layer should be twice the width of the window. Use a saucer to draw the shape of 'the scallops quickly. Then stitch the facing to the curtain, stitching around the scallops. Before turning the facing to the wrong side, trim and notch scallops. Before turning the facing to the wrong side, trim and notch scallops. To attach to tho rods 1) make labs 1% inches wide by six inches long and sew a button to each tab. Make buttonholes at each scallop point. Slip tabs over the rod and button to scallops, or 2) sew brass ring to each scallop point, or 3) Make two buttonholes at each scallop point. Slip the rod through the buttonhole openings. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate SAVE-SAVE ON THIS SALE We have to make room for our NEW FALL FABRICS that are coming in real soon.
