Although dyeing shoes with the ease of changing the nail polish on your toe nails is still an innovation hardly a year old, competition has mushroomed. The upshot has been a variety of improved products. The latest is the color multiplier system called mix and match. It enables you to malch your swatch, or garment to a color chart of 120 different shades. The rest is like mixing paints. Under each color sample is the recipe, telling how much of which of the company's basic 24 shades should be mixed together. To avoid miscalculation, mixing cups are part of the kits. Preparing to launch their rockets in a "Race to the Moon" are three of the five team captains in the current ticket drive contest being sponsored by Little Theater.

A Lovelier You Stretch the Dollar By MARY SUE MILLER It is estimated that teens will spend a record - breaking amount of money on fall wardrobes. This is partly because there are more teens than ever before, and partly because most of them have more cash jingling in their jeans. Even so, few are the girls who will not have to manage cleverly in order to cover all needs and desires. Twas ever thus! So as not to go for broke, the best idea is to start with a plan: Jot down what you must buy and, alongside every item, note your preference in color, fabric and style. Be sure you co-ordinate the colors and fabrics of al- lied garments. Next decide on how much you can afford for each purchase in relation to your clothing allowance. Against emergencies, try to hoard at least 20 per cent of the total. Several dodges help to stretch the clothing dollar. You will have more to spend for that dreamy date dress if you choose school clothes for long wear and low upkeep. The economics are elementary: The fewer dollars required to replace and care for school clothes, the more dollars you have for the glamour frills.

His Embarrassment Is Unhealthy DEAR ANN: Last week our 17-year-old son came down with a skin rash so we sent him to a doctor. Gary is supposed to go back to the doctor to- k- 'morrow, but he •>\ refuses. Finally x ,my husband got ' the reason out * of him. The nurse stayed in the ex\$> amination room "'" the whole time >' and Gary said he had never Ann Landers, been so embarrassed in all his life. Then the doctor left the room and told the nurse to give the boy a lamp treatment. Gary said he would not go through that horrible experience again even if the skin rash kills him. I want to call the doctor and ask him to please give Gary the lamp treatment himself and keep the nurse out. My husband insists the doctor will think I am crazy. He says the doctor hired the nurse to do these things and we should insist that Gary go back whether he likes it or not. We both want your opinion. —A HOUSE DIVIDED DKAU DIVIDED HOUSE: By all means insist that Gary go back to the doctor, not only to clear up the rash, but also to Seams to Me get rid of the crippling notions he has about his body. He should understand there is nothing shameful or evil in receiving medical treatment from a member of the opposite sex. A nurse is no more emotionally involved with her patients than a garage mechanic is with his cars. It is understandable that Gary might be ill at ease the first time, but to refuse to return is childish and he should not be allowed to get away with it. # * * * DEAR ANN: If you are a good sport you will answer all these questions in the paper. I'm betting my wife a new hat you'll come through. There's about a 30 year gap between the pictures that appear with your column and the advice you hand out. Your pictures look like a gal of about 30. Your advice sounds like a woman in her 60's. (1) Are the pictures really you? (2) Are they recent? (3) Have you ever had your face lifted? (4) Are those teeth your own? Thank you. —CANADIAN SNOOP DEAR SNOOP: (1) The pictures are really me. (2) They are recent. (3) No, I have never had my face lifted. (4) Yes, those teeth are my own. You're welcome, Ann Landers P.S. And I was 45 years old on July 4—which should answer the question you didn't ask but probably wanted to. * * * * DEAR ANN: For the past six years my husband and I have taken our summer vacations with another couple. I have never enjoyed these vacations because the woman is a chronic complainer. The weather is too hot or too cold. The food is always "vile" and the service "Inexcusable." The hotels aren't clean enough to suit her and the motels are too far out. Last summer we went to Los Angeles. My husband took me shopping one afternoon and when she saw what we bought she nagged her husband for the duration of the trip because he was so tight. I don't want another vacation with this couple but my husband says unless I can come up with a tactful "out" we are stuck. He and the man have been life-long friends and • he doesn't want to risk destroying the friendship. Can you help?—RUTSVILLE, USA DEAR RUTSVILLE: Tell your friends you are going to visit relatives or friends this year. Then do so—for a couple of days—after which you and your husband can go wherever you wish. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Corduroy Is Ideal for School By PATRICIA SCOTT In another month, children big and small will be back in school again. And for their clothes, corduroy is a marvelous fabric. Here are some hints on how to handle the material. There are three types of corduroy: Finwale: This is the most popular, It has 16 ribs per inch, is of medium weight, and comes in solids or prints. Wide-Wale: Heavier than pinwale, it has 5-8 ribs per inch. It is used mostly for suits, coats and slacks. Feather Weight: This is used mostly in infant's wear, dressy clothes, men's shirts and peg- noirs. It has about 22 ribs per inch and is very light in weight. Since corduroy is a pile fabric, the direction of the pile affects the color. Work with the pile running up or down, but be sure all pieces are cut with the pile running in one direction. Before choosing a pattern, check to see that it is suitable for fabrics with a pile or nap. Then follow the cutting guide for "fabric with a nap." II you are using wide-wale, the. ribs should be matched like stripes. Therefore, arrange H E. Fergyion, Wood River 1)6 E. Main,, gait Alton 1196 MUton Road, Alton NO APPOINTMENT NBBBBBI pattern places accordingly. To Cut, Sew and Press: 1. Use sharp shears. 2. Instead of cutting notches, clip the edges where notches are indicated. , 3. Do not use a tracing wheel and tracing paper. To mark use pins or tailor tacks. 4. Since corduroy has a pile, use a lighter tension, a longer stitch (about 10 stitches per inch), and less pressure. 5. When finishing hems and facings, it's not advisable to hem over the edge of the fabric because the stitches will hold it too clpse to the garment and you'll have a press mark on the right side, Instead stay- stitch % Inch from the edge and catch-stitch from underneath the hem or facing. 6. On double seams (collars, cuffs, etc.) always blend the seam allowances to avoid bulk, Trim one edge to V\ inch and the other to % inch. 7. Pressing must be done gently. Lift the steam Iron and hold it lightly over a press cloth and steam. If you do not have a velvet board you must pad your ironing board. * PERMANENTS if SHAMPOO SETS * TINTS & COLORS if HAW OUTS BROADWAY BEAUTY SALON 301 Broadway EAST ALTON, ILL loin Our SLIM & TRIM GLUB the easy, ^expensive way.
