My doctor said it was nothing to worry about. Do I have to worry about this?—L. K., Illinois. Dear Mr. K.: It is obvious that your doctor's assurance was justified, since you have had this problem for 10 years and, as the rest of your letter states, you are a "hard-working laborer." The skipped beats are usually an unimportant irregularity of the heartbeat. Sometimes they are related to over-indulgence in alcohol, tobacco or food. Or your very anxiety about the condition may be the cause. Certainly after all this time, another examination of the heart wouold give you great comfort and the reassurance you need. Breast-Feeding Newborn What is • the present attitude of doctors towards breast-feeding a newborn infant?—Mrs. E. V. V. Nevada. Dear Mrs. V.: From the point of view of physical health, the advantages of breast-feeding are not as great as they formerly were. At the turn of the century it was suggested that the breast- fed infant's chances of continued good health were greater than those of the bottle-fed infant. Today, with our newer knowledge of food supplements and vitamins, the difference is not considered important. However, there is one great advantage in breast-feeding and that is a psychological one for both mother and baby. The intimate relationship between mother and child during breastfeeding is acknowledged as a vital contribution to the eventual emotional security of the child. Pain in Legs I am a 46-year-old man, in go health except that I get severe pain in the legs when I walk for even 100 yards. Can this be poor circulation?—R. C. B. Miss. Dear Mr. B.: Your own diagnosis of poor circulation is probably the correct one. Technically, the spasm and pain is called "intermittent claudication." People who have this distressing condition find that the pain occurs after walking a short distance, then disappears if they stand still and rest a few moments. It is most important that the underlying cause of the poor circulation be established. The pain is only a warning signal that must not be ignored. Emotional Illness My husband has been told that he is emotionally ill. He refuses to see a psychiatrist and gets violently angry when it is suggested.—Mrs. S. A. S. Massachusetts. Dear Mrs. S.: More and more people today are turning to specialists in emotional illness when they have disturbing problems. They seek this help as readily as they would the advice and treatment of a heart specialist or a bone specialist. Unfortunately, there are still many who feel that there is a special shame or stigma associated with such a need. It is sometimes difficult to-persuade these patients to visit a psychiatrist. Emotionally-ill people need a great deal of patience, kindness and understanding. It is sometimes helpful to have someone whose opinion they respect suggest gently the benefits to be derived from open discussion with a therapist. While Dr. Coleman cannot undertake to answer individual letters, he will use readers' questions In his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest. Address your letters to Dr. Coleman in care of Alton Telegraph. A lovelier You Diet for Teens By MARY SUE MILLER A lovely mother writes: My teen daughter needs to lose weight and I want to help. Still I fear dieting may hurt her health and growth. Please advise me. The Answer: If a teen is more than 10 pounds overweight, reductions should not be attempted without medical supervision. Otherwise, a do- it-yourself diet can be entirely safe. Ideally it should aim at the loss of a pound weekly. So as not to jeopardize health it must provide for an approved balance and quantity of food. Here are the daily requirements—the nutrients that very often make for improved health, skin and hair: Protein—80 grams; big source •—lean meat, fish, fowl; 3 servings. Iron — 15 milligrams; big source—deep green vegetables, liver; 1 or more servings vege- table, liver once weekly. Calcium—1 gram; big source —Vitamin D milk; 1 quart (ask doctor about skim milk.) Vitamin D—400 units; contained in milk recommended above, also in sunshine. Vitamin A—5,000 units; big source—deep yellow vegetables, eggs, 1 serving each. Vitamin C — 80 mg.; big source—citrus fruits, fruit juice, potato in jacket; 1 serving each. B vitamins (as a group); big source—whole-grain bread, cereals, wheat germ; 4 slices bread or equivalent in cereal products. Fats—1% ounce; 2 tablespoons butter aud 1 tablespoon salad or cooking oil. Please .note, the needed amount of each nutrient is not necessarily supplied by the given serving. But it is made up in other foods listed. For example, bread offers protein and iron along with vitamins. Calories add up to about 2100. This allows 300 calories for low- cal snacks and desserts. The total intake must not exceed 2400 to 2500 calories. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate PARTY SIFTS & FAVORS Talk of the Town Fami MISS WiIH'1'LE MISS LANGHAM MISS LAMBETH rrr The Grower's Art Some Fall Planting Suggestions By FEED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist Soon it will be time to order your bulbs for fall planting. If you haven't any of the wonderful, newer daffodils or narcissus (don't call them jonquils) you ought to invest in a few kinds. They are such a mai've- 1 o u s improvement over the ones we had 20 years ' ago. Once planted they will take care of I themselves for ; years, growing 'bigger clumps ^each year. We are, of course, all familiar with tulips. But try to get acquainted with FKED. the wild, or species tulips. These are the tulips which grow wild in southern Europe and Asia Minor. While not as showy as the "tame" tulips, they have a charm of their own. Furthermore they are very long lived. In their native habitat they are used to hot and dry summers, coming into bloom in early spring, before regular tulips. Another class of little known spring flowers are the species crocus. They, too, are native to southern Europe and North Africa. These crocuses are a bit smaller than regular crocuses, bloom earlier and live for years. Some are fall blooming and should be planted early. The bulbs are sought after by mice, and should be planted in bas- kets of J 4 inch wire, which are easily made. They will repay you every spring for your trouble. The fall blooming crocus bulbs are not available at just any garden center since the call for them is limited, but most good seed houses list them. Now is the time to get your fall vegetables planted. You still have time to sow beans, beets, carrots, Chinese cabbage and, of course, turnips. You can't make kraut of Chinese cabbage. It's too low in sugar, and you can't add regular sugar since it's a different combination. Now it's time to enjoy your garden. Forget about the few weeds you have and relax and be thankful you have a bit Here's How Outdoor Safety for Oldsters By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer A vacation with relatives or friends can be a nightmare for older people. Instead of enjoying the outdoor life, they can be trapped in the house, because they fear going outdoors. Very little thought is given by young home owners to problems faced by older visitors who would walk or sit outdoors. And often older folk forget this aspect of home comfort when they buy a house. Lumpy, rocky, slipper areas can cause bad falls. Garden tools and children's toys are hazards. There should be a good path to the road and to an outdoor sitting place. Flagstone and brick walks are pretty but are they properly set, nor chipped or loose? Are steep steps leading into the house adjoined by an easily grasped railing? Is there a place outdoors where an older person can sit and enjoy the birds and flowers, and get adequate protection from the sun? Is it too close to flowers and bushes that attract bees and other insects? Firm Footing Is there firm footing in the area where a chaise lounge or chair is put? Grass should be close-cropped. Longer grass can camouflage small rocks, broken glass and slivers of wood that can cause stumbling. Gravel is a clean, attractive path liner, and is often used in areas to create an outdoor terrace-like ai-rangement. But older folk sometimes have difficulty walking in it. They should not be encouraged to relax on wood decks, unless the floor boards have been laid close together, so that heels do not catch. A screened-in porch is a good answer for older people. Bugs are foiled, there is shelter from sudden showers, and if strong breezes whip up, escape may be made in good time. But older people do not like to feel they are encaged, much as they realize they can't skip around. They want to be able to stretch their legs, without admitting they have certain reservations about walking down a steep slope to a summer house or terrace. Swimming Area They are often drawn to a swimming pool to watch children cavort, or even to have a dip themselves, but the danger is in slippery surfaces around the pool. Nonslip mats are available, but much outdoor furniture used in these areas is so light that if one sinks into it abruptly . or rises suddenly, there is danger in tipping. Much outdoor furniture is too low anyway for an older person's comfort. Many older folk would settle for a comfortable chair brought from indoors, although they hesitate to ask for it. There should be arms on the chair they use outdoors, so they can grasp them when they arise, balancing themselves to avoid slipping or falling. Marriages Announced Dodd-Harrison Airman 3.C. James Edward Dodd and his bride, the former Miss Sandra Sue Harrison, are living at 900 Washington Ave. The couple was married at 10 a.m. Saturday in Calvary Baptist Church. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Iris L. Harrison, 973 E. Lorena Ave., Wood River, and Leon F. Harrison of Gardner, 111. Airman Dodd is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dodd of 2910 Sanford Ave. The Rev. Todd Taylor performed the wedding ceremony, and a reception was given in Onized Club. The bride wore a gown of lace and taffeta, and an illusion veil gathered to a lace and pearl crown. Her flowers were white roses. Her attendant, Miss Mary E. Brehm, appeared in a pale green satin gown with matching headpiece, and wore a white carnation corsage. Richard Knight was best man. The former Miss Harrison attended Roxana Community High School, and is a graduate of Central Illinois School of Beauty Culture. Airman Dodd, a graduate of Alton High School, recently completed training at Air Police School, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.

Cooper-Clctpp Mrs. Pauline Clapp of East Alton, and Edward Clapp of Cottage Hills are announcing the marriage of their daughter, Sandi, and Dennis Cooper, son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Cooper of Cottage Hills.

WdlStlineS (jrO JJf> rn lj nf >« M.MCiiii'i'imB Miss Beverly Whitaker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter C. Whitaker of Granite City, who is court reporter in the office of Probate Judge Austin Lewis, was married Saturday at Union City, Tenn. to Clyde Tisdel Jr. of Bethalto, By LUCIE NOEL PARIS 5> — Effortless elegance, sumptuous fabrics and luscious colors were the keynotes of the fall and winter fashions unveiled Tuesday by Pierre Balmain. Balmain offered a high waistline, but has not lengthened his hemlines. The brilliant colors mostly were reserved for evening wear. The daytime picture is reserved and somber. A favorite theme is the three- piece costume for daytime city wear topped by a half-length matching tweed or wool jacket. One in violet tweed drew applause. So did an all-black outfit trimmed with twin rows of black buttons. Fine detailing, seaming, seam-slotting and careful chic tailoring typify the many little suits. For travel they are topped by straight tweeds or cable woven wools with flapped pockets. ' The Blasas Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Blasa and children, Sherry, Lisa and Ricky, have returned to their home at 203 Grand Ave., East Alton, following a vacation at Mt. Gilead, N. C. The couple, accompanied by Mrs. Blasa's father, W. M. Yarborough, received an "Old Fashioned Tennessee Welcome" as they passed through the town of Morristown, Tenn. The tourists were given soft drinks, literature and advice on road conditions from the hospitality committee of the Morristown Chamber of Commerce. Birthday Party A birthday party was given Monday for George Jacob Stemm in the home of his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Joe King in Jackson Acres, Godfrey, Mrs. Carl Stemm gave the party for her son, and guests were 20 relatives.

Sherman St., Bethalto, returned recently from a three- week vacation in International Falls, Minn. Madison County deputy sheriff. The couple was attended by Mr. and Mrs. Randall Robbs of Worden. They will make their home in Bethalto. of green and some flowers. There are a lot of people in apartments in big cities who envy you. * * * * Dear Mr. Clausen: My neighbor and I have a small patch of everbearing strawberries in our back yards. The last couple of weeks we found some insect is eating them, making round holes in them. Also there are hard spots in some of them. Can you tell us what to spray them with? I have been afraid to try most of the insecticides. My husband is an apple grower, but he says most of the spray materials he would be afraid of for strawberries.— Mrs. M. John Brady. Answer: It is slugs eating holes in your strawberries. I agree that it is risky to spray them. Try laying some old boards hi among the plants. The slugs will crawl under them and you can turn boards over and catch them. Hard spots due to imperfect polinizatipn. Nothing I know to do about it. * * * * Dear Fred: Will barberry bushes spread from seeds like miltifloral roses? How is burning bush propogated?—Fred F. Heitzig. Answer: Bai'berries will grow from seeds, but they will never become a nuisance. Euonymus or "burning bush" are propo- gated by half ripe cuttings in June. But they are hard to root even under the best conditions. Make saleable plants in five years. * * * * Dear -Fred: I have planted honeysuckle on several sloping banks around the house. The weeds and grass are growing .heavily with the honeysuckle. Must these difficult areas be weeded to protect the honeysuckle or will the honeysuckle eventually take over?—P.W.H. Answer: Some weeding will be helpful until the honeysuckle takes over. Eventually the honeysuckle will get the upper hand. (Be sure to keep honeysuckle away from trees, or they will choke them out by twining all over the top.) Please send your questions on gardening to the Alton Evening Telegraph. Mr. Clausen will answer your questions hi his column. Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Boyd, 1809 Crest Drive, a daughter, 6 pounds, 15 ounces, 6:12 p.m., Tuesday, Alton Memorial Hospital.

Jane says that when a girl walking down . the street and ' a boy whistles -at her, the girl lyshould turn p^around and say, '•'"Thank you." > She claims a 'whistle is the .,,™.jry highest Illx compliment a Ann Landers, girl can get and that she should let the boy know she appreciates it. I don't think this is very ladylike. I would feel funny doing it. I always keep right on walking and I keep my eyes straight ahead. Who is right, Jane or me? —MISS WONDERMENT DEAR WONDERMENT: It is not in good taste to speak to strangers on the street—especially strangers who whistle. Sometimes a whistle is more than a compliment—it's an invitation. The girl who acknowledges a whistle v gives the impression that she is accepting the invitation. So keep walking, Petunia—eyes straight ahead. * * * * DEAR ANN: My husband and I are in our late 50's. We have raised a fine' family and now we want to rejax. Our daughter, Roberta, married outside her religion and has taken the faith of her husband. We did everything In our power to persuade her against'it but without success, They have seven children and Jive in another state. Every summer Roberta comes with all the kids and spends two weeks with us. After two days we are ready for the booby hatch. On Sunday, the one day in the week when my husband and I want to sleep late, Roberta and the children are bus< tling around at 7 a.m. getting ready for church. The most irritating thing of all is that. I must plan menus to suit them. On Friday they won't eat meat. Believe me, this is a big fat bore. My husband says this year we should tell Roberta that either she and the kids live as we do or they can stay home. What do you say? —PRE-POOPED DEAR PRE-POOPED: So you have to open up three cans of tuna on Friday. Big deal. The thing that really bugs you is that your daughter married outside her religion. Now that she has done so (and produced seven children) why not accept a fairly obvious fact gracefully instead of picking at her in an attempt to get even? * * * * DEAR ANN: I just read the letter from that nut who wants his fourth wife back. I'll bet anything that letter was written by my ex-husband. I was his fourth wife and let me tell • you I wouldn't have the jerk back for all the tea in China. I was only 17 when I married him—a green, dumb, country kid who' believed all his candy-coated lies. When our son was born my husband's first act of paternal devotion was to sell our home and buy a trailer so we could live closer to the bowling alley, Then he could bowl every night Instead of only five nights a week. In two years he held the child in his arms twice. He was no father, no husband, no com- panion, no nothing. So I divorced him and married a wonderful widower with two small children. We are expecting a baby in the fall and I am happy as a clam. —GLAD TO BE RID OF HIM DEAR GLAD: And I'm happy as a clam you wrote. Several readers challenged that particular letter and insisted it had to be phony, I never publish a letter unless I believe it is strictly on the level. Sometimes the jokers fake me out but I don't think it happens very often. * * * * Confidential to ASHAMED TO DISCUSS IT: Go back to that book and read it carefully. Women are human, too, and the same goes for them. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.
