By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer Plants have shot off into space this summer. They've hit the ceiling of porches, hang from the overhang of roofs, and have turned sunporches into greenhouses. As one man said recently of his jungle-like surroundings, "I expect to see a monkey come swinging by at any minute." Some plants have been moved from their indoor settings. And new ones are added. There are many advantages to the arrangement: The satisfaction of being surrounded by flowers and foliage, no matter the weather, and it's a lot easier than weeding an outdoor garden. Every sort of container is used, from those that are improvised like wire salad baskets or Easter-style baskets to wire, redwood, cedar or flower pot containers available at florists and other shops. Remember Water If you hang plants high in the air, remember they must be watered. The joy can go out of a project that requires removing 17 plants from brackets . or ceiling suspensions for water. The best bet is to hang the majority of plants on walls within reach, with one or two strategically placed from the overhang of a roof or a ceiling of a porch. Newspapers could then be placed under plants to catch the excess water. Ordinary flower pots equipped with the rigid hangers that may be attached to brackets are very good for this purpose. Wire baskets are pretty but filled with soil and moss, they are not quite so easy to maintain. The pot need not be the main attraction. A trailing begonia or weeping lantana hanging from the beams is the only eye arrester you will need. Plants should be selected- for their tolerance to light, sun, shade. The weeping lantana with its masses of lavender, orange or rose flowers require plenty of sun, and lots of room for its sprays. Begonias Begonias do well in partial shade and in an area where the temperature is above 50 degrees. These can offer profuse trailing blooms. Ferns and even philodendron may be interspersed with other plants. Variegated ivy may hang from a pot of ordinary geraniums. And this same effect may be achieved with dwarf petunias, if it is too late to latch on to the trailing petunias. Coleus is another lovely plant for a basket. And trailing Nasturtium thrives on poor soil. In general it is a good idea to choose plants that are known to do well in your climate, rather than to experiment. And for foliage plants one might investigate those that grow near home, even in swampy areas. Gernigan-Downs Plans are being made for the marriage of Miss Jerry Lynn Downs and Ronald James Gernigan.

According to University of Illinois entomologist Steve Moore, sanitation will reduce the number of flies to a point where insecticides can control them. Covered garbage cans with tight lids and solid bottoms will help to reduce fly numbers around the house. On a farm, clean animal pens twice a week and scatter the debris in fields to dry, or compost or bury it. Flies breed in any moist, decaying organic material. Proper disposal of breeding material is the first big step in house fly control. Moore recommends using dlazinoh, ronnel or dimethoate to control flies. Mix the chemical with water according to directions on the container. Spray liberally around the garbage can and adjacent areas, as well as on outside surfaces where flies roost. Baits made with corn sirup combined with any of the three chemical (diazinon, ronnel or dimethoate) or such insecticides as dipterex, DDVP or dibrom may be used to attract and kill flies. Put some of the mixture into small containers, and place it where flies congregate. One insecticide, di- metilan comes impregnated in red plastic bands about two inches wide and six feet long. These bands can be hung from support posts or rafters in a barn or garage and will kill flies that land on them. Use baits and insecticides with extreme care so that children cannot reach them. Miss Molly Davey of 420 Henry St., will sing the leading role in the opera "Martha" .during the annual festival week program at Inspiration Point Fine Arts Colony, Eureka Springs, Ark.

"There is a distinction between outright relief and unemployment compensation," according to Ted Peterson, office manager of Division of Unemployment Compensation of Illinois. He addressed members of the Soroptimist Club at noon Thursday in Mineral Springs Hotel. Unemployment compensation is insurance against the risk of unemployment due to lack of work opportunities. The compensation is paid entirely by the employer. Nearly two million dollars was paid for compensation in Alton in 1962, thereby assisting the economy of the community, Mr. Peterson said. The speaker told the club that those persons doing part-time work can draw the difference between the benefit and part- time pay plus $7 incentive pay a week. The unemployed person must register with the Illinois State Employment Service in order to be eligible for benefits, he added. For a retired person to be eligible, the employer must have forced him into retirement, Mr. Peterson stated. Also, he said, a person cannot draw benefits because he refuses to cross a picket line. The club's program was planned by Mrs. William A. Abbett, employment counselor for the State Employment Service. ' The next meeting of the club will be held Aug. 1 at noon in the Mineral Springs.

Winner DEAR ANN: As the owner of a neighborhood hardware store I would like to thank you, personally, for stimulating business. Recently you published a letter in your column about a teen-age girl-who did a great deal of talking, on the tele-j phone. Herl mother decided! to put a 5-minute time limit! on her phone) conversations. She bought an] automatic e g gl timer and' placed it by the Ann Landers. telephone. Since that letter appeared I have sold seven egg timers to mothers of teen-agers. Each mother told me she got the idea from Ann Landers' column. One woman who came in to buy an egg timer bought a power lawn mower. Another woman paid her bill which was long overdue. My best wishes to you, Ann, and my thanks. —HAPPY MERCHANT DEAR HAPPY: You're welcome. But I do hope I made it clear that a mother who sets the egg timer at 5 minutes is a bit hard-boiled. A 15 minute limit is more realistic and not unreasonable. DEAR ANN: I'm not a great letter writer so I'll get right to the point. I've always • trusted my husband and felt relaxed'when he had to take a business trip or stay in town and work late. It never occurred to me that he'd ever violate that trust. I'm not a frigid person, nor have I lost my looks in the 20 years we've been married, so it was a real blow when I discovered he had been untrue to me on two occasions—with the same girl. He has begged me to forgive him, swears he doesn't want a divorce or a separation. He doesn't know why he did it- says he just felt like kicking up his heels. I'm 37 years old and still care for him a great deal. Now I feel I've wasted 20 years on someone who wasn't worth it. We have five children so I must find the answer. Can you help me?—EDGE OF DOOM DEAR EDGE: You have five good reasons to forgive and forget so don't be a fool and let your injured pride drive you into an impossible corner from which you may never extricate yourself. He has let you know he's sorry. He wants a chance to prove he can be a good hus- band. Now is your chance to be bigger than ever in his eyes. Don't muff it. * \* * * DEAR ANN,: We are two teen-age sisters, who need your help; All our skirts are at least two inches longer man they should be. We've talked until we've run out of wind, but mom says the skirts are going to stay where they are and that's final. We feel out of place with the other girls who appear'so sharp in their short skirts. It's getting so we hate to go anyplace because we look like we just came over from the Old Country. Almost every day mom quotes "what Ann Landers said" so we know she has respect for your opinion. Please be on our side. Thank you. —LONG SKIRTED DEAR SISTERS: Hem lengths should be guided to a degree by fashion trends. But common sense and good judgment is more important than any trend. Each of us knows better than Trigere or Dior what our legs look like. If you gals want your hems above the knees I'm with your mother. A good length for teen-agers is about two inches below the middle of the knee cap. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Seams to Me Cotton Shift Is Perfect For Summer Breakfasts MISS KIVETT.

Elder children, By PATRICIA SCOTT A cotton shift is cool, light and right for hot summer mornings—the perfect robe to wear to breakfast.

Adjust the length by adding or cutting off at the hem. The pockets are simply for decoration. You'll need: 2% yards of cotton fabric, 36 inches wide; 3 yards of wide bias tape. To Make: 1. Fold fabric in half with the two short ends meeting. Make a pattern following the measurements in the diagram. After the dress is cut, slit a 10-inch opening across the fold for the neck opening. Scoop the neck a bit (about one inch at center front and back and tapering to nothing at shoulders). Now slit the center back neck opening down 7 inches. Cut two pockets from leftover fabric, each 6 inches square, 2. Stitch the shoulders and the underarms. Stitch the side seams to 9 inches above the hem edge, leaving slits. Trim off all side seam allowances below this point, 3. With bias tape, bind the raw edges of the side slits, turn under % inch'and stitch, pretty printed pique.
