MISS tIEKTMAN MISS BRYAN MISS CltAMltEttS Ann Landers Child Lost Through Carelessness DKAK ANN LANDEHS: Today is the saddest day of my life. I'm amazed that I can sit down and write a letter after what I've been through, but perhaps it will be good therapy. Thus morning we buried my three-year-old niece. Betsy was beautiful, [\-b right - eyed >' d a r 1 i n g with golden curls. L Last week when we saw her at a family picnic she was full of fun and laugh- 1 gs t e r . Everyone - adored her. Ann Landers. Today Betsy is dead because her mother left a bottle of pills in the medicine cabinet. The little girl, thinking the pills were candy, ate every one of them. My sister-in-law found Betsy lying unconscious on the floor and rushed her to the hospital but it was too late. It is heartbreaking to lose a child through illness, but to lose a child because of carelessness is too much to bear. Please print this letter for other mothers to read. It may save some precious young lives. —AUNT MAE DEAR AUNT MAE: It is baffling that some mothers will carry a sweater to school when the weather unexpectedly turns cold and yet these same mothers will leave cleaning fluid in pop bottles, pills that look like candy on bathroom cabinet shelves and loaded guns in closets. Every mother who is reading these words should check shelves, drawers and closets for potential instruments of death. Remember that a large bottle of aspirin, if taken all at once, can kill a child. Remember, too, that children can climb on chairs and wash basins, and reach top shelves. The only safe place for medicines (and guns) is under lock and key. Thank you for writing, Aunt Mae. It's good to be reminded of what we think we already know. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 17 and going with a boy 19 who works in a minor capacity for my father. My father never liked Alex but he never told me I couldn't go out with him. Last night Alex came by to take me to a baseball game. I was shocked when I saw him. His hair, which was always slicked back, had a definite curl. You might say it was actually kinky. 1 asked him what he did to it and he said his sister gave him a permanent. My folks discussed Alex's hair this morning. My dad gave me no orders but he did say, "I think that kid is nuts." Do you feel the hair job is reason enough to stop going with him? —PIE FACE DEAR FACE: The boy sounds so flakey that if you don't figure the hair job is reason enough to drop him just wait a few days. Curley-locks will do something else soon. * # # * To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for ANN LANDERS booklet, "How to Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20c 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 Buyers Enthusiastic Givenchy Displays Total Elegance' Lodges Alton Rebekah Lodge will meet at 8 p.m. Friday in Western Star Odd Fellows' Hall. PARIS (&)— Buyers and department store executives Wednesday gave glowing descript- tions of Givenchy's new fall and winter fashions. They called the showing a display of total elegance. Contrary to most other houses, Givenchy and Balenciaga reserve their first showings for buyers, rather than fashion writers. The press is given its first look much later. Balenciaga will show today. Those present at Givenchy's showing said he had used no gimmicks, presented nothing spectacular but achieved the elegant overall look through cut and details. Everything was in contemporary style, with no dependence on flashbacks - or historical reminiscences. Givenchy revived the fitted suit, with the wrist-length jacket cinched at the waist. His second suit silhouette is cropped at the hips, and belted just above. In contrast to his previous collarless line, this season he shows small tail- ored collars with high notches. Some of the suits are worn over unbelted contour sheaths. There are no blouses .in the collection. Givenchy also introduced a new full skirted coat. Fitted redingotes have narrow backs and are belted high in front. Some have half shoulder capes halfway around, others all around.

All Southwestern High School students, By ASSOCIATED PRESS Beef is shouldering its way back into the spotlight at many markets this weekend. Most frequent features include rump and round roasts, with shoulder and chuck roasts also bargain-priced in some stores. Hamburger specials are also to be found in many areas. Pork steaks are a competing feature, especially in the Midwest. Broilers. fryers and turkeys continue to vie for shopper attention at price levels that remain economical. Canned tuna is again one of the main attractions among seafood items, though fresh fish bargains are available in many regions. Vegetable offers have expanded in most areas, though hot weather in the Southwest has reduced local selection. Nationally, best buys include green beans, tomatoes, cabbage, green peppers, carrots, lettuce, eggplant and corn. Best fruit buys include cantaloupes, grapes, nectarines and peaches, with regional bargains including avocados and new apples in the Northeast, watermelon in the Midwest and plums in the West. Grocer counter attractions include peanut butter and salad and cooking oils. Sugar prices have been Inching downward as grocers use up stocks brought during the high-price period earlier this year.

This Is how one doctor's nine- year-old reacted to the wonderful world of medicine at the 112th annual meeting of the American Medical Association held recently in Atlantic City. His enthusiasm was understandable. Even the most sophisticated physician was heartened by the impressive exhibits of America's newest medical and surgical ndvances. ifope and optimism seemed to pervade the spirit of this medical convention. The dedicated efforts of every scientific discipline were represented in that great hall. Doctors Captivated Physicians and surgeons exchanged new ideas, speculations and hoped-for goals with chemists, physiologists, engineers and computer experts. R e s e ar ch accomplishments, some already accepted and in use, others promised but still in experimental phases, captivated the rapt attention of every doctor. One surgeon, in practice tor many years, spent many hours with a colleague, carefully scrutinizing every display of newest surgical achievements. He paused in front of an exhibit, of a particulary ingenious heart-and-lung machine and said: "Who could ever haVc predicted this fifteen years ago? Spectacular Demonstration People who spend their lives in fear of illness would have got great comfort from this spectacular demonstration of the progress of medicine. It is indeed a paradox that, in the presence of such concrete evidence of medical accomplishment, fear of illness should still flourish. Experiments in every field of medicine and surgery seem to be coming to fruition constantly. Each day brings new. enlightenment. Each day brings new hope. One could feel this hope everywhere in the convention hall. There were the extraordinary exhibits of the artifical kidney, heart surgery and the use of isotopes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Visiting doctors gained new knowledge of rheumatism and arthritis, air pollution, anesthesia, stomach ulcers, surgery for deafness, eye bnnks for cor- nenl disease and the treatment of high blood pressure. Other DeVrilofimentft New and safe drugs were exhibited for the control of depression nnd anxiety nnd for antibiotic therapy.- New mechanical devices Were demonstrated for the rehabilitation of the, handicapped. Social and welfare agencies outlined their long-range plans for the eradication of malnutrition in the underprivileged. The medical management and the personal dignity of the elderly were, included in their programs. The medical departments of the United States Army and Navy displayed their interesting contributions to the peacetime health of our nation. Military and civilian personnel merged their research resources to achieve a health objective. Public Health services demonstrated their paternal protection of the health of every American by their Incessant s u r v e i 1 la n c e of air pollution and control of epidenjic disease. Emotional Needs Perhaps the greatest contribution of all — the one thing that gave vitality .and life to all of these research exhibits- was the constant recognition of the emotional needs of the patient in relation to his illness. Doctors everywhere arc aware of the importance of the body- mind unity which is the concept of psychosomatic medi- Qine. An inspiring meeting was brought to a close with the confidence that another year would bring even greater fulfillment and greater hope. * * ^B * These columns are designed to relieve'your fears about health through a bet. ter understanding of your mind and body. All the hopeful nevv advances in medicine reported here are known to doctors everywhere. Your individual medical problems should be handled by your own doctor. He knows, you best.

I rarely find styles I like in the half-size group. j —MRS. N.O. A. Shorten the bodice to your waist length, using the shortening and lengthening guide on the pattern. Shorten the skirl, using the guide line on the pattern. Shorten long sleeves by laying tucks across the pattern above and below the elbow.

But it is soon squandered, unless a selection promises long-term satisfaction. That dividend is a sure thing, if you consider these points before you shop: What type of coat would most become you? Flattery depends on line, pile and color. Generally speaking, the slimming coat is designed with a preponderance of vertical lines. Horizontals—belts, wide cuffs, pelts worked crosswise—add to the figure's girth. With regard to pile, just remember that the flatter furs are the easiest on heavy and short figures, Color, .of course, determines a fur's - becomingness to your face. And; in these' days? a just- right choice should be no problem. Thanks to mutation and processing, fur colorings have been expanded to a degree where there are many comple- Haynes-McCoy Nuptials Read Miss Bernice Ann McCoy and James Richard Haynes were married at 8 p.m. Monday in the home of the Rev, E. E. Vieregge in East Alton. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Boyd McCoy of Granite City, and parents of the bridegroom are Mr. and Mrs. John Haynes of Alton. Miss Penny Couch and Mervin Smith attended the couple. The bride wore a white linen dress with lace overblouse. Her attendant was dressed in yellow linen trimmed in lace. The couple will live in Georgia, where the bridegroom is stationed with the Army at Fort Gordon, mentary shades for each idi- vidual's coloring. What type of coat would be the most durable? Here, the decisive factors are hardiness of pelt, quality of fur and work- panship, and excellence of styling. For hard wear, the sturdy pelt is on the dense side. As for quality, it only can be vouchsafed by a reputable furrier. The kind of styling that lasts as long as the fur is directed toward authentic fashion trends. Among those with a future count slimmed-down silhouettes, not closely fitted but yet controlled; cape-coats; "sportive" shapes, such as the trench coat, Norfolk and reefer.
