By FRED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist : If you have a Christmas cactus run it a little on the dry side during September. This. initiate the, uds for Christmas flowering. Remember that fall is nature's time to sow grass seed so, if 1 you can, get the igrass in this Ifall. And make iup your mind you're going to have some weeds and crabgrass. Once you do you will sleep better. « # * * Dear Mr. Clausen: I have a small dogwood 2 years old on which the leaves become rusty looking every year. They curl and turn black too, giving the appearance • of having been burned by a spray or chemical. Can you tell me why this happens?—Mrs. P. B. Nader. Answer: Late in August all dogwoods begin to turn. It's natural to that specie. A tree that young has not been really established yet. Check the tree for borers, and if you find any cut them out. If you have a ring around to hold water, better level it off so water won't stand and freeze this winter. : ."*. * * * *' Dear Mr. Clausen: In the last two weeks an elm' tree in our back, yard (on the north side) has sap coming out all along the trunk and limbs. In turn this is causing the leaves, to fall from lack of nourishment. What can be done to help it? The sap has caused bees and other insects to gather. Will they damage it fur- ther? Could this condition be due to age? *The tree is over 20 years old.—Mrs. J.S.C. Answer: Your ^elm tree has what is 'called wet-wood disease. Drill a hole.about 3 /4 inch in diameter past the center of the tree trunk, slanting upward a little. This.-will relieve the gasses that are building up pressure inside the tree, and will also provide an opening for the sap to escape. Then drive a short piece of pipe into the hole, letting it stick out about four inches. The sap will drip away from the tree. Insects are drawn to the sap but have nothing to do with the tree being sick. Late in winter feed the tree and hope it works. It may have Elm's disease .besides. An elm of that is just an infant. * * * « Dear Mr. Clausen: We have a public street light about 30 or 40 feet from a large white frame building. The insects are so bad at night that we had to paint the building. They form some sort of web and since,;, the painting about a month ago they are as bad as ever. Is there any spray we can use? Or what can be done to eliminate these insects?— F.N. Answer: We too have a public street light that close to our house but no bugs are seen around it. Some types of light draws insects, others don't. The light company can tell you the difference. Most night flying insects are moths. They have a powder like substance on wings and body which can cause a web-like look when they strike a building. I doubt any spray will do any good as in- sects are' drawn to light from far away. # » * * Dear Mr. Clausen: I read your answer about lantanas several weeks ago. I would like to just keep mine until next spring. Do I still trim them back? How can I start new plants from cuttings? What seeds can you sow in the fall? —Mrs. R. C. Noble, Bunker Hill. -'• Answer: To carry lantanas over winter dig them up in the middle of September. Cut % of top off and put in smallest pot you can get roots into. This will prevent you from over-watering them until they get started with new growth. Keep them in a sunny place, and when plants ' have fair growth you can shift them into a larger pot. The top you cut off will make good cuttings. Make cuttings three inches long, .and insert into pots of sand or very sandy soil. Water and keep in subdued light. Slip a plastic bag over pot and cuttings to reduce evaporation. You can sow seeds of pansies in a frame now, leave them there over winter and plant them out in early spring. Also columbines, s h a s t a daisies, sweet Williams, and delphin- eums. About Oct. 1 you can sow annual larkspur. They will come up this fall and carry over winter. Make another sowing on' Thanksgiving. They will come up next spring and bloom a little later than the first sowing. * * * * Mail your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, in care of Alton Evening • Telegraph. He will answer them in his column. Ann Landers Beauty Contests Produce Pitiful Sense of Values DEAR ANN: I read recently where our state crowned a 10- year-old girl "Little Miss Beautiful." She will be sent to Miami to compete in the Little i / Miss Universe on test. Two ^youngsters and i|three mothers •^broke down and jwept from dis- iap po int ment |when the winner | was announced, |, The whole thing ^ is nauseating. Ann Landers. How can we allow little get the idea that their worth is measured by how they look strutting around in a bathing suit? Please keep hammering away on ! the importance of letting children be children instead of rushing them into an adult world with a lot of |alse standards. It could be, your major contribution to a mixed up world.-AKRQN, B..J. PEAB B,J ? ; Thank you for givlpg me another opportunity to zero in on one of my favorite targets. It is not only nauseating, it is pathetic that parents would exploit 10-year-olds by putting them in a beauty contest. What these parents don't, understand is that one of lh? principle incentives lor aqhlevejjient to de> ' strpyed when'suclj, phony-values are empteN*. **WV *»'««^ thing wpn you «fln get all that attention'ty W being b,eauti- just too pitiful for ter but I do need help with a most unusual problem. Last week I knocked my kneecap out of the socket and had to have a cast put on my entire leg. The leg is stiff now, of course, and I can't get a sock on. I live alone and there is no one who can help me. It's terribly embarrassing to show up at the office with one naked foot. Do you know of a home remedy for this problem? Thanks in advance. FORT WORTH BACHELOR DEAR FORT WORTH: If you can't ask one person in this whole world to help you put a sock on, you have more serious problems than a naked foot. It's difficult to determine from your letter if you are friendless or just shy. The best solution I can offer is this: Put a sock in your pocket when you leave the house in the morning. Then ask the very first male you meet if he will give you a hand with your foot, I can't imagine anyone saying no, Hi * » » DKAH ANN: When my husband and 1 were married 15 .years ago it was a double-ring ceremony. He wore his wedding ring constantly until about a year ago and then he began to leave the ring at home in the bureau drawer. Sodat Brieh New PR Classes for Scouts Set The Family Open Sandwiches for Summer By CEC1LV BKOWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Two countries, Denmark and the United States, favor the open sandwich. In Denmark, open sandwiches are usually served cold. In this country, even in summer, we often put our open sandwiches under the broiler. It's hard to find a new open- sandwich topping; cooks seems to have thought of every possible combination. But the following recipe is an interesting combination of flavors that we do not remember encountering. The foods teamed together The foods teamed together are definitely compatible. Cooked chicken is moistened with mayonnaise and seasoned with curry powder, then the chicken is given that Waldorf Salad combination—apples and celery—as a partner. When we tested this sandwich, we tried it two ways: once as a broiled sandwich, and once as a cold spread for crackers. It's hard to say which is better. New'Open Chicken Sandwiches 12 slices toast; 2 cups diced cooked chicken; % cup (about) mayonnaise or boiled dressing; % cup diced celery; 1 cup pared and diced apple; % teaspoon curry powder; ] / 2 teaspoon salt. Arrange toast on foil or a baking sheet. Mix chicken, mayonnaise, celery, apple, curry powder and salt. Lightly pile filling over toast. Heat under the broiler. Slice in half and serve 3 halves for each portion. Makes 8 servings. Born to: Last night I decided to ask him about this. He told me his foreman at the plant told him he should not wear any jewelry whatever on the job because it could cause an accident. Some of the men have lost fingers when their rings got caught on the machines. I accepted this explanation and then suggested he carry the ring in his pocket to remind him that he is married. He said this was a nutty idea and he refuses to do it.' Now I wonder if perhaps he is seeing someone who thinks he is single. We have five children and he's home every night. I've never had any reason to suspect him before now. What do you tMnk?-UNEASY WIFE DEAB UNEASY: A father of five children doesn't need to carry his wedding ring in his pocket to remind himself that he ' is married. The grocery and shoe bills are reminder enough. Stop nagging the guy and putting ideas in his head. A man who Is at home every night is not likely to be cheating. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Even in hot weather, it's a good idea to serve one hot food with each meal. An interesting new open chicken sandwich can be broiled, or the topping may be served as a cold spread for crackers.

A Lovelier You Weekend Perk-Ups By MARY SUE MILLER Could your weekend wardrobe^ use a swift lift? When summer " days decline, so do most sum-' ;i mer wardrobes. The chances are you will find more than one quick perk-up among these ideas: • —As a substitute for a thread-.; bare beachcoat, make a poncho or two large terry bath towels— any gay and matching ones in your linen closet. Simply place , the towels atop each other and, leaving a hole for your head to slip, through, hand-whip the ^ top edges to form 'the shoulder- ? line. Then attach two cotton tapes to each {owe! at the "waistline." When you put your creation on, bow tie the tapes. —Refurbish a seedy straw beach bag with dry suds and several coats of paste wax. —Use the same suds and wax treatment on a straw beach hat, having first removed any trimmings. Then retrim with dime store flowers or autumn leaves. It's a conversation piece you'll have!. —Give a totally new look to summery leather pumps with shoe make-up. In an instant it bathes shoes with new color, almost any shade you might fancy. —Replace dilapidated belts and scarfs with a matching set in paisley or foulard on a dark green, garnet or brown ground, Such sets look marvelous with casuals now. 'And as they are a sure-fire fall fashion, the in- LIKE NEW, . LOOK .;|T,\ TOO.' ;i vestment would' pay continuing dividends. —Retire your summer' jewelry and gloves, and accessorize with deeper shades. Baubles; of gold or darkling stones put a new face on late-day pastels. A mocha glove jets a summer suit into autumn. It's that newsy! ', r ' ','.
