I get invited places but only because' people sorry for e. I have a fair Ann Laiulers. figure and my mother says I can buy all the clothes I want, but my taste is terrible. I hate to shop because the clothes I go crazy over in the store look awful when I get, them -home. I can't do anything well because I'm a clumsy cow. I'm a lousy tennis player, I can't swim, and I hate to dance. My voice is so screechy the choir teacher has asked me to just move my lips and not try to sing with the others. I always say the wrong thing and laugh at the wrong time. Please help me before I start high school in September. MISS NOTHING DEAR MISS: Those who think TOO well of themselves are a pain in the neck. Your problem is the reverse and equally unattractive. It's a drag to hear people forever running themselves into the ground. Among other things it indicates that they think people are paying more attention to them than they actually are. Get out of the habit of tuning in on yourself 100 times a day. Turn your thoughts outward — Seams to Me toward others. After having done your best — whether it's tennis, swimming or whatever —forget your inadequacies and concentrate on something else. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDEltS: You might call this letter "A Warning To Widows: Stay In Your Own Home." My husband died four months ago and my daughter and son- in-law insisted that I sell my home and come live with them. I was grief-stricken, lonely and confused when I said "yes." It was the biggest mistake I ever made. My house is gone, my furniture is gone and I'm a guest in someone else's home. My teenage grandchildren are disrespectful and make me feel as if I am in the way. To hear them talk I wonder how I could have lived so long- and learned so little. I was once a friendly, pleasant person but now I feel like a useless, sour old woman. I gave lip everything dear to me and I really didn't have to. Please tell /other widows. to stay where they are — even ' v if it's a single room. I wish I had.—NOT HAPPY. r DEAR NOT HAPPY: If you feel a single room would be better why don't you find one? Some mistakes are beyond repair but this one can be remedied and I hope you do it promptly. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: My cousin is getting married in August and I've been asked to be an usher. Linda, the girl I'm going with, doesn't know the bride or the groom except casually. She put a lot of heat on me to get her invited to the wedding and the reception sb I did. Last night Linda asked me what I wa«r doing the Friday before the wedding, I told her I was going to the rehearsal dinner. She got mad and said if I went without her we were finished. Nowil don't know if I should phone my cousin and try to get Linda invited to the rehearsal dinner. My mother says Linda has a lot of gall to put me on the spot this way and that 1 shouldn't jump through hoops for her. I like Linda a lot and don'f want to lose her. Help, please. BOSTON BLACKIE DEAR BOSTON: Most rehearsal dinners are for the wedding party and some out- of-town, guests. Linda's demands are clearly out of line. If the friendship is going to stand or fall on this issue—I say let it fall. * * * * To learn the booby-traps of teenage drinking, write for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing .with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Getting special hair styling instruction at the ninth annual two-weeks School of Advanced Cosmetology at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, July 21-Aug. 3 from instructor and School chairman Charles Budas, left, Maywood, 111., are five area beauticians among 55 from seven states taking the course of study.

CARBONDALE — Fifty-five beauticians from Illinois and six other states are learning not only the latest fashions and practices in hair styling and coloring, but such less glamorous subjects as logic, human relations psychology and speech at the ninth annual two- weeks School of Advanced Cosmetology which ends Friday evening at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Among practicing cosmetologists attending the school are Lena Bailey and Lorraine Lumley of Alton, and Charlene Bohart of Godfrey. Sylvester White, head of the Illinois Department of Registration and Education, will be the speaker for the final dinner meeting Friday in N SIU's University Center ballroom at which beauticians completing their third year of participation in the school will be awarded certificates. The school, first of its kind to be recognized by the National Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologllsts, is cosponsored by the Illinois Association of Hairdressers arid Cosmetologists and the SIU Division of Technical and Adult Education. Charles Budas, Maywood lecturer, writer, teacher of hair styling and beauty salon operator, is chairman pf the school.

Ill By MARY SUE MILLER The TNT that destroys beauty and charm is Tension- Neglect-Tiredness. Authorities tell us that more fatigue is due to tension than to work. Neglect of course is triggered by fatigue. When you are overtired, you scarcely have enough energy to keep going, much less keep up your appearance. Soon you come to look and act as dragged as you feel. And, ten to one the cycle has its basis in tension. So, if you are a victim of habitual fatigue, how about checking yourself for tension? Here are a few of the simpler checks: Do you tap your foot or drum your fingers when you are kept waiting? Do you clench your fists or clamp your jaw at the approach of an important engagement or duty? Do you ever see your reflection frowning from shop windows? Do you fret about tasks to come, while working on those at hand? Do you work so fast that you make mistakes and then have to undo them? Does a change in routine throw you into a turmoil? A "yes" answer to any of those questions reflects susceptibility to tension. To overcome it you first have to cultivate a more relaxed attitude toward human weaknesses — your own and'other people's. Then you must learn not to worry about things not worth worrying about. When in spite of your efforts tension mounts, try this' therapy: Get into a warm, sudsy tub and go limp. Put everything out of your mind except relaxing each muscle from head to toe. That way, you break up the TNT cycle before it breaks you up. Crepoy Throat and Chin To firm and uplift sagging facial muscles and flesh, use my four-way method. It works wonders through corrective exercise, posture, skin care and makeup.

A potluck dinner will be served at 12:30 p.m. By PATRICIA SCOTT Shortening the front of a blouse is a common fitting problem. If you have a flat chest and bust and are round- shouldered, there'll be extra length. You must shorten the blouse between the shoulder and bust. If you are Around-shouldered with a low bust, you must shorten the pattern between the bust and the waist. To determine where to make your adjustment, measure the pattern from the shoulder seam at the neckline to the bust line, about 2 inches below the bottom of the armhole line (figure a). Then take this measurement on yourself and compare the two. However, measuring alone is difficult in this particular alteration, so I suggest making a simple dress or blouse of a dress out of muslin first, using this altered pattern. Then alter the muslin to fit perfectly and use it as a guide for future patterns. It' the pattern Is too long from shoulder to bust (figure b): draw a line on the pattern about halfway between shoulder and bust line. Cut along this line. Slide lop section B over bottom section A until blouse is short enough. If pattern has a shoulder dart, use the original dart markings in the bottom section A as a guide and mark a new dart. Do not follow dart markings on top section B. Now, extend the front edge of section A up to the neckline, straightening the center front and clip off the excess corner of the pattern sticking out. If the pattern is too long from the bust to waistline (figure c): draw a crosswise line at the bust line and then cut along this line. Slide bottom section B over top section A until pattern is' short enough. Since this will change the measurement around the waistline, extend the front edge of section A down to the bottom of section B. Cut off the corner, and extend the underarm line of section A down to the waistline. This is a rather tricky adjustment because of the two possibilities, but it is.' well worth working on. Once the muslin fits perfectly, you'll |ind that you can make a dress far more quickly. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate By LUCIB NOEL PARIS UP)— Yves Saint Laurent Monday keyed his fall .and winter fashion note to opulent prosperity with a lavish collection called the "good mood." ' There were no bombshells or radical changes. Saint-Laurent, who stepped into the shoes of Christian Dior after Dior's death and later was forced out, has attracted enough wealthy clients to his own house to avoid sensationalism. Hemlines comfortably cover the kneecap's. Sports and evening wear claimed most of .the interest from the collection. For sports, Saint-Laurent put his models into "puss in boots" styles. Suede, alligator and calf boots climb thigh-high and zip or strap on. Tight pants are worn with them. <• The ensembles are completed by tweed or mohair tunics and space helmets or fancy headgear. Evening wear is restrained in silhouette but opulent. Jeweled and sequined embroideries appear in long, tight sleeves. Jet, topaz, small pearls and rhinestones are used. Saint - Laurent develops his own trend of past designs and adapts it for winter. His tun- Born to: Pohlman, Brussels. Paternal' grandparents, Mr." and Mrs. Frank Seiferman, Brussels.

M. Fosler. Here's why: These hybrids are proving'very successful for Illinois summers. And the plants are generally the most vigorous, disease-resistant and free-flowering varieties available. The Urbana trial garden, maintained by the Division of Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture, is part of its teaching, research and extension program. In the summer issue of Illinois f Research, Fosler reports that'amateur gardeners, professional plant growers, park personnel, seedsmen and landscapers use the garden to watch varietal performance. This year the garden contains 1,200 different varieties. Many new varieties for 1963 are in bloom, interplanted among hundreds of older offerings and interest ing novelties. Also sprinkled about the garden are some pre- introduction items from prominent hybridizers. Students aand staff members in floriculture and ornamental horticulture use the trial gar- den'to keep abreast of new developments in the bedding plant field. The project also allows experimentation with new cultural techniques, seeding methods and - improved insect and disease control measures. Fosler points out that the petunia-ranks as the number one annual for Illinois conditions and steals the show in the test garden' with about 300 varieties. belts often coming part way in front also stress a lower waistline.
