How much thought do you give your posture? -In a quest for loveliness, the feminine mind most often dwells on the three F's—figure, face and fashion. Yet good posture is basic to the charm of the total woman. Surely fewer women would be guilty of poor stance if more realized how destructive it is to appearance and personality. Let us count the ways it affects us: —With figure bulges. Muscles, unable to stand the strain of poor posture, cushion themselves with fatty pads; hence the bulging knee, hip, abdomen, waist and. .dowager's hump. —With aches and pains. Incorrectly carried, the body pro- By MARY SUB MILLEK tests with backaches, sore feet, stiff neck, fatigue and a pained expression. —With fashion losses. Clothes look shoddy when posture answers to the same description. —With a loss of personal appeal. Gracelessness can never reflect winning traits—spriteli- ness and poise, for instance. Plainly, working for good posture is no idle pursuit. To make a good beginning make a point of pulling up tail- really pull the neck out of the shoulders, the waist out of the hips and the weight out of the feet. ; Once those actions become automatic, and they will with practice, pull up "thin" as well as tall. That means contracting the abdomen and rolling the hips downward. The end effect is an alert, willowy stance, one that looks and feels lighter than air. Lose Without Blues Weep no more about excess weight! You can lose without hunger pangs, fatigue and flabby aftermaths. Just send for "Lose Without- Blues"—a 16-page booklet. that gives delicious menus, easy spot-reducing exercises, dieting tricks, your model weight and how to. maintain it. For your copy, write Mary Sue Miller in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long, self addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin. © 1963, Field Enterprises, Inc. Ben Hecht Recalls That Toddlin' Town GAILY, GAILY. By Ben Hecht. Doubleday. $3.95. The author is a veteran writer, with so many books, plays, movie scripts and magazine articles to hjs credit that their number scarcely can be counted. But it is the hey days of his youth that he recalls in these •pages, the years before World War I. In 1910 he had given up being a violin prodigy and an acrobat, and at the age of 16 had run off to Chicago to become a reporter. In that, city's madcap period of journalism, such qualifications and credentials were perfectly normal. There hadn't been any world wars in those days, nor nuclear fission, "teen-age problems" or electronic soap operas. No togetherness. The papers were full of gruesome murders, scandal and sordid local politics, The younger generation will find virtually incredible the world Hecht inhabited then, which he and Charles MacAr- thur captured in a famous period play, "The Front Page." Hecht and his cohorts were incomparably absurd and romantic, self-consciously irreverent, writing floridly extravagant effusions about petty criminals, bums, cheap office-seekers, stage personalities and a few "cultural" emissaries. So Hecht's reminiscences are about a zany world. It was an earthy, uninhibited time, and it had zingy zest. People were real—even if they were brothel madames, shyster lawyers or shyster politicians. And many of Chicago's literary monentities of those salad days became famous later. The author recalls a lot of them tintype-wise, Hecht is a born story-teller, and he must have written these anecdotes with affection. His yarns are sometimes bawdy, often lurid, but always savory. These are pieces that have the sterling ring of that fragile immortality which clings "'to the -folklore of an exotic era. Miles A.

Ann Landers This Is Called Discipline DEAR ANN: I wonder how many mothers are in the same boat. I have knocked myself out for 15 years 'trying to please my children. * But no fmatter what I ido, it's never lenough. There ''must be a sign my back say- g, "Kick me." I get up at 6:30 ^< ver y morning to v Prepare break- for my teen- ;.agers. 'All I get Ann Landers, is complaints. "The milk is too warm. Did you leave it out all night? The cantaloup is soggy. The cereal is runny. The eggs are too hard. When I leave a meeting early to pick them up at the club (for the 50th time this summer) I get a sour look and a "Where have you been anyway? We've been waiting five minutes." How did the children of today get the upper hand? My teen-agers make me feel like an employe. I find myself always striving to please—and never quite making the grade. Please tell me where I got off the track. —MOTHER, 1963 MODEL PEAR MOTHER: Children are not born with "the upper hand." It is given to them— given by parents who don't have the courage to establish the rules for the- family. .This is 1 called discipline. And when rules of behavior are worked out equitably and seasoned with love, discipline produces respectful, well-adjusted children. Teen-age tyranny is not new, but it is vastly more prevalent than lit. used ,to be. This is what Henry James wrote 81 years ago in "Point of View." "There is nothing in America but young people. The country is made for the rising generation; life is arranged for them; they are the destruction of society. People talk of them, consider them, defer to them, b'ow down to them. .They are always present, and whenever they are present there is an end to everything else, And by children, I don't mean sinv ple infants; I mean anything less than twenty," * * * * . . X DEAR ANN: My / husband's boss is a man in his' late 40's. He has an oily, egostical manner which offends me. This man has a wife and three children, but you'd never know it the way he carries on. His current romance is a shapely redhead who works in the cost-accounting department and who is at least 20 years younger than he is. She drives his car all over town and she's been wearing some mighty expensive clothes lately. The problem is this: My husband has been staying downtown about three evenings a week—having dinner with this couple. I don't like it and have said so. My husband says the boss is three times seven and what he does is his own business. I say birds of a feather flock together and I don't want anyone to get funny ideas about my husband. Who is right? —MRS. WHY INVITE GOSSIP? DEAR MRS. WHY: When your husband pals around with this pair he gives tacit approval to the whole shoddy business. A married man should be at home having dinner with his family—not acting as a cover for philandering friends. * * # * DEAR ANN: I was married for one year and recently had the marriage annulled legally and in my church as well. How do I go about announcing the news? Shall I see if I can have it published in the newspaper? Shall I send out engraved annoncements in the mail? Is it proper to keep the name Mrs. John Doe? Or shall I go back, to Miss Mary Smith? I have a child. Please advise me. None of my friends know the answers. —LOAD OFF MY SHOULDERS DEAR LOAD: You do not announce an annulment. Your family and friends will get the word soon enough, if they don't already know. Since you have a child you should not be "Miss" anybody. You could make it Mrs. Mary Doe, however. Then if John remarries you won't be, getting his wife's telephone calls and her department store bills. * * « * To learn the difference between a marriage that "settles down" and one that "gets dull," send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "What To Expect From Marriage," 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 Family Reunion Sixty-two persons attended the reunion of the family of the late William Manns Sunday In Alton Recreation Center.
