She will be a freshman student in the College of Commerce and Finance. The human body has many sources of reserve. '.'Saving for a rainy day" is one of the techniques the body employs to house and store energy for use on special occasions. The body has its own special "heart fund" or heart reserve, which is called On when there is a particular strain placed upon it. Extra Burden Heavy work or exertion puts on extra burden upon the heart. By a remarkable system of intercommunication, the. heart reserve is notified and immediately responds. We may not even be aware that the heart is putting forth this special, added effort because it compensates so readily and quickly to meet the need. Similarly, when a mountain climber feels that he no longer can go a single step farther, the same process of communication takes place between his fatigue and his muscular reserve. This additional spurt of released energy carries him up another incline, perhaps to the very peak itself. When the liver, during a phase of disease, is in need of an extra supply of sugar, its reserve is called upon to function in that emergency. In various forms, the body continues quietly and efficiently to accumulate this storehouse of chemicals, vitamins and body defenses. But it is not aware of its reserve until the need arises to call it into play. Keady to Meet Need There also is a vast storehouse of emotional reserve which we build up over the years by learning and experiencing, by the solution of problems, by decisions, good or bad. This emotional warehouse is filled with limitless enei'gy waiting to be released when the need is urgent. We call upon this store of emotional reserve daily to help us encompass normal life situations. It is a treasury of ex- perience and faith and belief in one's own judgment and personal integrity. Its accumulation is a slow, ever-growing, never-ending process. Sometimes its growth is barely perceptible. But through all of life's successive experiences, this reserve of emotional energy continues to develop. Periods of great stress bring it forth as a great opponent and destroyer of anxiety and fear. Something New Added When each new problem that arises can be settled in a positive, mature manner, something is added to that storehouse of emotional reserve. This emotional energy is the sum total of any man's know-how of adult living. Sometimes, it takes an overwhelming experience to uncover the body's wealth of physical and emotional reserve. This explains why some .people, who give all the evidence of being inadequate, frightened and unable to handle life situations, are sometimes so unexpectedly competent. • When they come face to face with the reality of a serious" problem they are able to call on their hidden supply of inner resourcefulness, columns are designed How It Works This is how emotional reserve 'works—alone or in conjunction with physical reserve — to destroy fear and anxiety during periods of stress. Much like that extra ounce of energy in mountain climbing, or that heart reserve when the last bit of vitality seems to be gone, suddenly, almost from nowhere, comes the emotional and physical support to help us achieve our goal. . These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body. All the hopeful new 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.

Meat is in abundant supply and is reasonably priced. This also is the season for some particularly good buys in fruits and vegetables. Beef roasts, steaks and ground beef are among the best offerings at the red meat counters, Loin roast is the best bet in pork. Broiler-fryers, turkeys, canned tuna, scallops and eggs round out the best buys in protein foods. One big supermarket chain offers rib roasts at 53 cents a pound, down 16 cents from last week. Pork chops, at 79 cents a pound, are 20 cents lower than a week ago. Fryers are off 4 cents at 35-39. The same chain reported the price of eggs down 2 to 4 cents a dozen. Cooking Is Fun •M By Ctcily Brownitont Brides-Elect Set Wedding Dates I HP r'fliYiilv JL JLJLvy JL Cllllll J V Seams to Me A Couple of Minutes Now Saves Future Mending By PATRICIA SCOTT Sometimes an extra row of stitching, a strip of tape. .. just a couple of minutes extra work will save you much time in future mending. * » » * Q. I have five children and I make all of their pajamas. The trouble is that I must spend hours mending the crotches in the pants again and again. Is there any way to make this part ,of the garment stronger in order to get better wear?— Mrs. T. T. A. Yes, you can reinforce the crotch and the V-necks if they are also a problem. Make tbe regular seams first and lay them out flat. Then insert a piece of woven tape and stitch through it as you stitch the second time. This is an excellent way to reinforce garments at points of strain. * * * * Q. I have a little girl and I am starting to make her dresses. How do I set in a sleeve that has gathers on shoulder part and around arm edge?—Mrs. W. L. A. Your pattern will indicate where the gathering should be at shoulder. Make two rows of gathers around the sleeve top between these markings. Make one row right next to the seamline inside the seam allowance and the other % inch beyond It. With the sleeve towards you and right sides together, pin the sleeve in the armhold matching all markings. Space the gathers evenly and baste. Stitch and press the seam toward the sleeve (figure A). Figure B shows how the finished sleeve should look. * * * * Q. My collar in the back stands away from the neck. Can you suggest a remedy?—Miss N. F. T. A. If it stands out just a little, you can ease in the extra fullness at the back neck line when you put on your collar or facing. Of you can take in the fullne^S with very small darts, tucks or shirring at the back neck line before you finish it. If a great deal stands away, you must rip the should- der and underarm seams. Then raise the back shoulder seam to smooth out the bulge and also to straighten the crosswise grain. Refit your shoulder seam, and if necessary use darts on the back shoulder seam. Refit your underarm seams and relocate the back neck line and armhole line. 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 re- ceived 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. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Ann Landers She's Had Her Brain Washed And Can't Do a Thing with It DEAR ANN: Should a married man with two children be allowed to date?,. When I say "date" I m.ean purely social— ! drinks, dinner, nothing . My hus- »\bahd insists that athis is accepta- B»ble < behavior in : our society and ~V& th at everyone e x c e p t hypocrites, prudes \i f - and squares Ann Landers, does it openly. He also insists that those who don't do it openly are probably doing it secretly. My husband says he believes in being completely honest with me and he hopes I won't force him to turn into a sneak. He also says a man appreciates his own wife more after he has been out with other women. This all sounds reasonable to me when he is saying it, but when I am alone and start thinking about it, it doesn't seem to add up. I should tell you that I was born in Europe where the ideas of home and family are quite different than in this country. Please advise me.—MRS. B DEAR MRS. B: You sound as if you've just had your brain washed and can't do a thing with it. If you want to go along with this Design for Living it's nobody's business but your own. But please don't buy the idea that everybody does it and it's perfectly all , right. The married man who can't give up dating is like the 55- year-old matron who still wears her sorority pin. * * * * DEAR ANN: Am I an unnatural grandmother? If you say yes, then there are a lot of us because many of our friends feel the same way. My married children think it is my responsibility to sit with their yuongsters whenever they have something they would rather do, I have no objection to helping out in a- pinch but it seems as if I am getting pinched four and five times a week. We have two daughters and a son. I am worn to a frazzle running between their homes to care for their children. All the girls play golf, bridge, do club work and brag that their families don't tie them down. Of course they don't. But they tie me down plenty. Is there a way to say no without giving the impression I am letting the girls down? My nerves aren't what they used to be and I just can't take raising another set of youngsters.—EXHAUSTED DEAR EX: The Lord knew what He was doing when He gave the young to the young.

Volakis came to the Greek-American colony in Chicago in 1919, an illiterate immigrant whose first job—18 hours a day— was as a dishwasher. This is the story not only of VoJakis, who became a restaurant proprietor, but of his family as well. Though much of it Is told in humor-vein, it is basically a tragedy. There were three sons and two daughters, and eventually, grandchildren, but the family had to endure great sorrows because of the fatal flaw In VoJakis' character. He loved his firstborn, Aeneas, too much. He worshiped the boy. And when a sudden illness killed Aeneas, the father turned against the newly arriving second son, Alex, Eventually there grew a hatred between the unloved son and the father, and out of this hatred came further tragedy. But the story Is not grim. Most of it Is a lively and warmhearted account of dally life in the Greek-American neighborhood, with some interesting people weaving their way Into the family's life. Two of the most engaging are a priest and a cynical but kind physician. The author has a good ear for colorful dialogue and manages to depict his characters In highly Individual ternis, He has made Volakis 1 life journey come around in the end, like an ancient Greek tragedy, to a purge ot the old man's sin.

But too many .older folks are run "ragged and imposed upon by inconsiderate children who dump their responsibilities on tired grandmothers, because they know they can get away with it.

The gauze doesn't pucker when the dress is laundered. By MARY SUE MILLER A lovely writes:' Under doctor's orders and supervision, 1 1 lost 40 pounds. I was so proud until friends began telling me that I look.too thin and drawn. I guess my face and neck are a bit lean. The skin seems slack, too. Your advice, please. The Answer: Any women who loses a vast amount of weight deserves praise. Never censure! In the first place, what is the alternative to reducing when you are excessively heavy? Only getting more obese, and perhaps shortening your life span. And that is an answer every slimmed lovely might try on critical friends. In the second place, what is so terrible, about,,a lean face? Surely a full-moon , contour never won a beauty contest. And surely .no friend would wish it on a friend. Now, having found criticism groundless, let's get 'out with the slack-skin problem. It's for real. The skin is apt to sag when it looses a large bolster of fat, particularly if preventative measures have been overlooked. In any case, the condition is not hopeless. Nature, given time, restores some elasticity to facial tissue and muscle. Then the skin begins to snap back. The process is sped along, especially for mature skins, by several methods: 1. Apply moisture lotion daytimes and oil-rich emollient bedtimes. 2. Night and morning exercise the skin and muscles. For a good routine, place fingertips to sides of cheekbones and gently draw up skin; throw head back and, with tension, open and close lips—open wide and close tightly. Crepcy Thront 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 make-up.
