GERNIGIN MRS. 1SNLOE Ann Landers A Sermon on Party-Crashers Lynch- LaPelle DEAR ANN: Please print this letter for my parents. They don't know the difference between a party-goer and a party-crasher. Last night I gave a pajnma party for eight girls. About :,*9:30 p.m. five s fellows dropped lover to say "hi." e knew all the sboys and they 'are respectable j and decent fel- ,!lows. My par- ,..'ents knew them, 5 too. They have ^ all been over to the house at some time or another. The boys stayed for about half an hour and my folks were present all the time. My folks were very cordial to them, but as soon as they left we got a blistering parental sermon on party-crashers. Please tell my uninformed parents .that party-crashers are kids who come to a party uninvited and try to wreck the place. These fellows were very well-behaved and we were happy they came over. Thank you a whole lot. —TERRY AND HER FRIENDS DEAR TERRY AND HER FRD3NDS: Sorry, but a party- crasher is one who shows up at a party uninvited. Whether the person intends to wreck the place or behave properly is beside the point. He is still a party-crasher. * * * * DEAR ANN: My husband and Seams to Me I bought n new home two blocks from my parents. Jim had to go 6ut of town on business just as we were moving into the new house, so my father, who is very handy, hung all the pictures and mirrors and did a lot of the odd jobs for me. When Jim came home I thought he'd be thrilled to see everything set up. But instead he was very disappointed. He said he had wanted to do those things himself and that I should have waited for him. Jim has always resented my closeness to my family and I feel he is acting like a spoiled child. Of course he found fault with the way the pictures were hung. He pointed out that the curtain rods were crooked and so on. I love my family and I love Jim, too. Please tell me if you think Jim is-being too possessive or if you feel I was wrong.—-WOE IS ME DEAR WOE: There is a strong competitive spirit between your husband and your father. This is natural but you should attempt to reduce the competition—not encourage it. When a girl marries, her husband should replace her father as The Number One man in her life. You should have checked with Jim to learn if he wanted to hang the pictures. Now he feels slighted, and with pretty good reason. DEAR ANN: My handwriting is simply terrible. I have been ashamed of it ever since I was in high school. I have tried to improve it but I'm just n lousy writer and that's nil there is to it. So I type all my personal letters and notes. A friend of mine recently called me down about this. My" brother passed away several days ago and I acknowledged flowers and cards with personal typewritten notes on my own stationery. I believe tills is a cut above those printed and engraced cards where you fill in your name. May I have your opinion? —ILLEGIBLE ILKA DEAR ILK: I believe it Is far better to send a personally signed typewritten note of thanks than a handwritten one which cannot be read. I agree with you that the engraved or commercially printed cards are cold and impersonal, and that your, method is better. * * * * Confidential to TRAPPED LIKE A RAT IN A RAT TRAP: There is no law ,in any state which can force a man into marriage. The law says a man must support his out-of-wedlock child but it is not mandatory that he marry the mother. # * * * 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 Vonderheidt-Reynolds Receiving friends in the social rooms of Brown Street Baptist Church following their wedding there at 2 p.m. are James Edward Vonderheidt and his bride, the former Miss Sheryl Jean Reynolds.

By PATRICIA SCOTT The swag and cascade valance is an elegant way to decorate your window. However, since it tends to lower the ceiling it is not good in a small room. For this valance, you'll need a shelf-type board on which to mount the valance. It is advisable to make a muslin pattern of both swag and cascade before cutting drapery fabric to be sure'of depth, fullness, etc. The depth you make the swag depends on the height of the window. For an average window, the swag should be about 14 inches deep at center. When you start to cut your swag, notice that it is cut on the straight crosswise grain at the top and the length of your valance- board. The bottom is slightly wider and rounded. To make swag pattern, cut a piece of muslin 36 inches long and 3 inches wider than the board. Pin muslin to board across top. Be sure muslin extends the same amount at both sides. To form pleats start at top. Each pleat is 2 inches deep. • The second pleat overlaps the first pleat % inch. Continue pleating in this way until the entire piece is pleated pr until swag, is the desired depth at center. Trim sides even with end of board and make notches at fold and turn of each pleat. Remove pins from pleats and cut drapery fabric. As in figure A allow for a IVs inch top hem. Also allow Vv inch seam allowance at bottom curved edge. Cut lining from same pattern but eliminate top hem. Stitch lining to fabric at bottom edge, right sides together. Trim seams to % inch, turn and press. Turn top of swag under H inch, then again one? inch and press. Following notches, pin pleats In place and stitch pjeats H inch from edge working from bottom to top (figure B). Stitch % inch twill tape to back of hem right below top crease and stitch.M inch Jrom, edge (figure C). Turn hem under, pin and, slip-stitch J 4 inch from edge (figure C). Turn hem under, pin and slip-stitch in place, Tack swag to board across top through twill tape. Then tack each end. For cascade on average window, the outside length should be 30 inches long and 20 inches across top. As in figure D allow for return width of valance board and .Vz allowance at both side edges (indicated by dotted lines). Form pleats at top, the number depending on fullness desired, Notch pleats and remove pins, Cut facings of same fabric and the same size. Join outer fabric and facings along sides and lower edge. Turn and press. Form pleats with one pleat overlapping the other. Cut a strip of fabric 2 inches wide, the length of the cascade across the top plus % inch. Turn ends under V4 inch and fold strip In half lengthwise, pin edges to cascade top and stitch. Fold band over (op of valance board and tack as in figure E. 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.
