Fd Like to Know I moved to California because of my sinus condition. Now I realize that I felt better in Wisconsin. Does weather affect sinus conditions? Mrs. E. D.. Calif. Dear Mrs. D.: Apparently, you found out the hard way that one should not uproot a home and family in order to find the climate mecca for an infection of the sinuses or any other medical condition. Obviously, climate is not the only cause or cure of sinus infections, asthma, bronchitis or arthritis. If it were, then some areas of the country would be totally free of such diseases. They are not! Undoubtedly, a consistently warm, temperate climate can be more soothing for a variety of chronic illnesses. It is much wiser to test a climate by first living there for a reasonable period of time, however, before disrupting the family structure by an impulsive move. If the new climate, the community and the job opportunities all fulfill their promise of health and security, the move can then be made without disappointment. Colds And The Infant I have a four month old baby. Should I, my relative, or friends wear a mask when we have colds and are near the baby? Mrs. Y. N., Mich. . Dear Mrs. N.: The belief at the present time is that there is no real need to wear a mask if you don't "coo" at the infant. Baby-talking to infants covers them with droplets of saliva and sputum, which can infect them. When relatives and friends have colds, it is wise and considerate for them to stay away from the infant. Show them a picture instead. Seeing Spots What causes spots before my eyes?

By SYD KRONISH (AP Neksfeatures) Stamp collectors throughout the world will have a new addition to their Australian Dependencies. The Territory of Cocos (Keeling Islands) will be issuing a series of postage stamps and thus bring the Cocos group in line with other Australian territories, Previously Australian stamps were in use for these Islands.

The 8 pence red features a map of the Islands, The 1 shilling green shows Coco Palms, The 2 pence purple pictures a native sailboat called a "Dulong." The 2 shilling 3 pence green features the White Tern, a beautiful bird of the Islands, *»:;;.; Several new albums recently placed on the market have been proving so popular that many have sold out and second printings have been necessitated. This was recently noted in the U, S. Specialized Catalog of First Day Covers by the Washington Press. The H. E. Harris looseleaf Standard World Stamp Album has been selling in great quantities even though it sells for 511.95. The fact that it has places for 50,000 of the world's stamps (those which collectors are most likely to acquire), and has 30,000 identifying illustrations, has been a big selling point, This album can be obtained directly from the company by writing H. E.

UNIFORMS UP TO Sizes £ 50 /O OFF Paulene's FASHIONS _ The family Social Briefs Grandmothers Entertain Husbands I have nothing to worry about. Mrs. C. R., Mass. Dear Mrs. R.: Worry seems to be a greater problem than your eye condition. The fact that you were reassured by your eye specialist should have been comforting. There are many causes for such spots. Apparently, at the time of the examination, an explanation for your spots was given to you. Unfortunately, you, like many other patients, are so anxious and fearful before, during, and after a medical examination, that you often forget the reassuring answers to your questions. On your next visit, listen carefully to your doctor's answers, and you will find relief from your anxiety. Croupy Cough My son, age 2%, develops a croupy cough in the middle of the night. When I pick him up, the cough seems better. Can this be a psychological need on his part? Mrs. B. L. T., Ohio Dear Mrs. T.-: A psychologi-. cal cause'for a medical condition must, of course, be considered, but only after every physical possibility has been thoroughly investigated. The so-called psychosomatic reason was never meant to be a catchall for unexplained illnesses. Actually, a group of physicians have recently substantiated your own experience. They found that when a croupy baby is held upright, the distress seems to diminish. It should be emphasized that all croupy children should be .subjected to the expert opinion and care of a physician. While Dr. Coleman cannot undertake to answer individual letters, he will use readers' questions in his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest. Address your letters to Dr. Coleman in care of this newspaper. © 1963, King Features, Synd., Inc, The 15 franc featured diving, 20 franc—high jumping, 25 franc—football, 30 franc — basketball 85 franc—track, and 10 franc—boxing. * * * * Amelia Earhart, who will be honored with an 8 cent U, S. commemorative stamp on July 24, was such a beloved individual that it was difficult to pick a first day site. Atchison, Kan. received the honors because that it where Miss Earhart was born 65 years ago. However, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Miami also were closely connected to her career and might well have been appropriate sites for first day honors. Even Toronto has a claim since she was a nurse's aid there during World War I. When you separate eggs, be sure to remove any spots of yolk before beating the whites. Mary Ann March, home economist, notes that even the tiniest bit of yellow can prevent whites from beating properly. Touch the yolk spots with the damp corner of a paper napkin to remove them.

I took out the sleeves of a ready<to-Wear dress and the armhbles are much too large, How can 1 fill them in to make a sleeveless dress? MRS, M, D. C. A. You can't fill in armholes that «are too large.

Can 1 patch them up in any way to get a little more wear out of them? MRS. J. M. A. Your dresses can be salvaged. To make a panel patch, cut out the underarm section of the bodice from the sleeve down to the waist. Using this section as a pattern, cut, match and seam in a new piece as in figure A. However, remember when you cut the patch that Ann Landers you must leave double seam allowance on the patch edge to be seamed to the bodice to make up for the scam allowance that is taken out of the bodice.

This newcomer apparently has fool- jjjed a great many ^people. She was ^described to me I? as a high-grade ^person with an ^impressive fam- ftily background >S— wealth, social >"V*& position and like ^ that. You can imagine my sur- Ann Landers, prise when I met her and she turned out to be Mazie 'Klutz (manufactured name, but you get the idea) from Philly High.. Mazie did not remember me, naturally, since, it was 20 years ago — and Philly High was a big school and I was a freshman when Mazie was a senior. I happen to know that her father was a butcher who did time for rubber checks and that her sister ran off with a siding salesman. I. hate phonies and nothing would give me greater pleasure man to blow the whistle on this one. My husband says to keep my mouth shut, What do you say? IN THE KNOW DEAR IN: And who is she posing as? Queen Fredricka? Your letter indicates that the big build-up came from your friend — not Mazie — so keep quiet. If Mazie has been able to rise above her environment, I say hooray for her. # # « « DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter was 21 in June and now tells us she is no longer a minor and will do. as she pleases. To make matters worse, on her 21st birthday she inherited ?5,000 from her grandmother. Unfortunately she received all the money at once, A Lovelier You. Beautiful Tresses Are Elusive By MARY SUE MILLER In the catalogue of feminine beauty problems, "H" stands for "Hair." Would you believe it? Beautiful tresses are more elusive than slim hips! The most worrisome troubles seem to be too curly, thinning and slow-to-grow locks; and perhaps because they ' are the most difficult to overcome. Let's look at the possibilities. Hair can be straightened but, since the method is tricky, it should be performed only by a. competent professional. It entails the use of a very strong lotion, stretching with a comb, then neutralization of the lotion. Stretching is the crucial step; lack of expertise can lead to breakage and falling hair. What makes hair slow to grow is as yet an unsolyed mystery. What's known is that it will, not grow faster by being close-cropped. But, when it is over ten inches'long, its rate of growth slows down. Ti'Smming off split ends appears to stimulate growth. For certain, less abuse and more basic, care — brushing, massage, scalp treatment — encourage a growing spurt. Thinning hair can be put down to heredity and certain illnesses. But, as the incidence increases in women, doctors cast about for other reasons. Abuse and tension are current theories. Should they prove true, then improved hair care and health habits would form likely precautions. Why not use them in any case and play it safe? At present thinning hair responds in many instances .to medical treatment. True baldness is the exception. But it 'may be brought under control -one day via hair transplants, hair grafts now in the experimental stage. Let the balding live in hope! . © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate and she's spending it as if there were no tomorrow. Yesterday she bought a pair of lounging pajamas for $85 and a black lace negligee with a matching gown. No decent girl would be caught dead in those get-ups. Perhaps I should tell you she quit college in her freshman year because "there was nothing to learn there." She's been spending all her time with an amateur drama group, never earning a dime, but living on the allowance we give her. Yesterday she went downtown to look at a secondhand Lincoln which she will probably buy. What can we do about this girl? DISTRAUGHT DEAR DIS: -Someone ought to point out to the "heiress" that she inherited five grand 1 —, not five million. Let her know that the privilege of "doing as she pleases" , entails full responsibility for herself. Insist that she get a paying job and kick in for room and board. # * * * DEAR.

' Well, I've been taken In all right — so thoroughly and completely that I am trying to figure a way out. There are coffee Watches twice a day — and some of the girls get together for a cocktail at 4;30.
