I have a dress that doesn't fit me at the shoulders, which are too short. Can I fix it?—Mrs. V.O. A. If you have enough seam allowance at the shoulders and the fabric is rather firmly woven, you can take smaller seams to give you a little more room. * * * * Q. How can I make fine thread lingerie straps?—Miss T. E. A. Thread your needle with a double strand and knot the ends. Place the needle through one hole of the snap "socket." Pull the thread almost all the way through the hole and then put the needle between the two strands near the ends that are knotted (see figure A). When you draw the thread up the snap will be fastened to the thread by a loop. To be sure it is secure, make two or three blanket stitches through the same hole, leaving a loop large enough to begin the chain stitch (figure B). After the chain is long enough to slip easily underneath your shoulder straps, slip the needle through the last loop to fasten. Securely. tack the chain to the seam allowance of the shoulder seam. Then sew the "ball" part of the snap to the dress in the right position (figure O). * # * * Q. I am very round shouldered and my dresses sag un- der the bustline. I've tried taking in the extra fabric at the waistline seam but this throws the grain off. What should I do?—Mrs. T. C. •'<• A. Rip the shoulder seams. Then raise them on the front until your grain' is straight across your bust. You must take up the neck at the shoulder seams to fit properly, but just taper the seam to its normal width at the armhole. Miss Scott is always glad to hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her ' column, but because of the great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters. In response to requests on slipcovers, Patricia Scott has compiled them in booklet form, "How to Make Slipcovers." For your copy of this helpful booklet, write to Miss Scott in care of the • Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long self addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. 5 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Born to: Classes in *«p-^ « - _ V_-f f l/C/t-7 U 1^ O • Beauty by Electronics Painless Mother's Helper bjr Heimonn & Fearion A HANDY BEACH poncho can be made from a large terry towel, or from a length »f printed terry lor plain) which you can buy by the yard.

By MARY SUE MILLER Many lovelies ask about the advantages of the new "beauty machines." Well, all of them arc intriguing and, depending on your needs, one or more could prove useful. The new electric hair curlers, for instance, could be the answer (o a woman's prayer for a quick set in emergencies. Or for release from the eternal bedtime settings. There are several types. The simplest, a hand model, curls one section at a lime. The heat is controlled and reaches the hair via a shielding roller. To curl the entire head, electronics provides units with 18 rollers. Thermostatically controlled, the unit heats tubes for insertion into cordless rollers—previously arranged on the head. A signal light atop each tube goes off when (he tube has reached the proper temperature and is ready to insert. Other examples of electricity on the beauty front are improved facial patters and under-chin massagers. Tenite plastic housing renders them light and easy to handle. Their gentle but unbelievably rapid electrical impulses work to rouse circulation and muscles —and thus to tone flagging skin. Both beauty and comfort \ Childbirth come in a contoured plastic foot tub, outfitted with an electrical massager. You just fill the tub with warm soapy water and sit back while the massager takes the weariness out of your feet—and thus the weary expression out of your face. So there you have a few beauty by-products of the electronic age. Wonder what the space age will come up with! 0 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate August Special licB- '.80 Glna Mora PERMANENT *5.45 NIXINE BEAUTY SHOP 08 \V.J{. AVIS, K.

Ann Landers Commandment Gives No Reason DEAR ANN: I am sick of people who "demand respect simply because they are-,older. Some old people are dumb and some young people are smart why all this !j crummy advice labout "honoring s your father and smother?" My parents are o square you \ wouldn't believe i"it. Some of the things they think a 17-year-old kid Ann Landers, should be doing are an absolute gas. My ma wants me to go look at junk in museums. My'old man thinks I ought to work up a sweat on the lawn. Why should I when we have a yard man who gets good money for loafing most of the time? My parents haven't been teen-agers for 35 years so what do they know about it anyway? I'm sure you won't print this letter because I am right and you don't know how to answer it.—BILL DEAR BILL: The Ten Commandments are still the best rules to live by. No one has been able to improve on them, in 5,000 years. The Fifth Commandment says, "Honor .your father and mother." In this sense, honor means respect. It didn't, say, "Honor your father and mother if they are bright, or if .you agree with them—or because they are older." It says honor them—and it suggests no reason except that they are your father and mother. And this is reason enough. * * * * DEAR ANN; My sister iis a' nurse. She is married . to a physician and.. they 'have three children. Every summer they come to visit us for two weeks. For the last three years they have managed to bring hearty Chicago-style germs in our Old Kentucky Home. Two weeks ago, as a result of their annual visit, we almost lost mother. She is still in the hospital with a staph infection and I am not feeing a bit well myself, I have discussed this with ' pur family doctor and he said it is possible for people to carry germs without being ill themselves. He also said he thinks perhaps the family illnesses were- coincidental. Well, just how coincidental can you get? I : don't want to take any more chances* '.coincidental or not. What do you suggest? —LOUISVILLE^ DEAR LOUISVILLE: Since you have persuaded yourself that your Chicago relatives are germy, you will probably get sick from just looking at them. So tell them they can't stay with you next year. Incidentally, my medical consultants agree with your physician. '. ' V * * * * ''DEAR ANN: That letter from the' girl who didn't see why her parents should charge her room and board, even though she was 23 years old, and earning $75 a week, really got my dander up. So she "didn't ask to be born." That was some snappy comeback. When I graduated from high •school I handed over one-fourth of my paycheck to my mother. I grumbled a little and thought of all the, extras I could be buying if I didn't have to pay room and board at home. Three years later I had my big blue eyes opened up. I married a fellow who never ; had had a responsibility in the world. He ivas an only child, plenty spoiled,- and had always lived at home for nothing. To him, money was something to throw around. It was rough at first ; and if my training hadn't been-any better than his we would have been divorced the first 'year. I finally taught him how-to budget and now we are managing just fine. Believe' me, Ann, our children are going to be brought up like I was—not like my husband. I hope you print (his. —S.G. ,. DEAR/ S.G.: Here it is and lean only add a hearty "amen."
