THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-ONS Seams to Me Eliminate Bulk in Coat By PATRICIA SCOTT Q. I'm planning another winter coat and I want to avoid the same mistake I made last year. Where I made darts on the coat, the interfacing and the lining, there is a great deal of bulk. How do I eliminate this? Leave out one of the darts?—Mrs. T. McC. A. Eliminate the bulk by (1) marking the dart on the interfacing; (2) slashing the Interfacing on the straight center line of the dart; (3) overlapping the slashed edges so the two slanted stitching lines meet; (4) stitching flat on the stitching line (see illustration). V * * * * Q. Why do some pattern instructions advise top-stitching the waistline on certain dresses? —Miss L. D. A. This reinforces the waistline seam and keeps it < from stretching. It also gives a smooth finish to a dress that is to be worn without a belt. * * * * Q. Almost every dress I make with a low neckline gaps in the back. How can I prevent this? —Mrs. V. L. A. Try raising the back bodice piece at the shoulder line. Pin up the extra fabric at the shoulder seam on the back piece only and gradually taper into the sleeve seam allowance. If this is not quite enough and you have a certain back seam, you can pin out a bit more of the extra fabric at the back seam. However, be sure to keep the grainline straight. #**:;< Q. Some instructions suggest haste-stitching by machine to save time. How do you regulate the stitch?—Miss N. K. A. Adjust the regulator to the longest stitch. To remove the stitches, snip the bobbin thread every few stitches and pull out the short threads. Don't pull the entire length of thread because you may leave marks on the fabric. * * * * CJ. Whenever I have to press seams toward a facing before it is turned, I never get a good clean crease on the right side. Do you have any trick for this? —Mrs. H. T. A. Before you press the seam toward the garment, press It open as you normally would. Then press it in the direction it should go. 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 mall received dally, she can- A Lovelier You Safeguard Your Health Be Careful With Aspirin ILLINOIS MEDICAL SOCIETY The most widely used medicine in the world today is aspirin. It's so popular, in fact, that Americans swallow over 16 billion tablets a year for various aches and pains — an excellent endorsement of its pain relieving effectiveness. Unfortunately. any drug powerful enough to help you, also has the potential to hurt you, a fact too many people choose to ignore. Consequently, more than 2,000 Americans die every year from misuse or overdose of aspirin, with thousands more experiencing serious illness. To safeguard your health, and that of your children, remember these rules. * Always drink a full glass of water when taking aspirin. Otherwise you're liable to Irritate your stomach, bring on nausea and even vomiting. * Never take aspirin on an empty stomach, for this too may bring on nausea and vomiting. * Never take aspirin if you not answer individual letters. 3 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Weekly Food Revietv Fruit, Vegetables, Meat In Full Supply at Markets Bom to: No Teasing, Please!

Aspirin's acidity, though weak, can irritate an ulcer and even cause it to bleed. ,* Allergic reactions to aspirin are rare, hut occur most often in persons with aslhina. Such reactions can he violent. In sus- ceptihle persons, two aspirins can cause unconsciousness, Asthmatics would be wise to con- suU their poysirian concerning th's particular allergy. * Never lake aspirin to reduce fever without first consul, ing your doctor. If you do, there's ti danger that you mity mask .symptoms of a very serious illness. * Never buy more than a two or throe month's supply of aspirin, for aspirin deteriorates with time and the more it does, the more likely you'll suffer reactions. Check the aspirin container in your home. If it, smells cf vinegar on opening — or if the tablet falls apart between your fingers - throw it out.

Exaggerated height and width, obtained only with a teasing comb, is a thing of the past. And praise be, for back-combing so damaged feminine tresses and there's been a record boom in reconditioning treatment. In keeping with fashions, daytime coifs now emphasize simplicity. The hair is cut and draped for the smoothest possible finish. The crown may be slightly domed or may closely cap the head. The sides may swirl on the cheeks in a rhythmic wave or in a soft flip-up curl. Individual flattery dictates variations. The invariable is a superlative cut. In all probability it will be a blunt cut, neither tapered nor layered. The fabric of the hair must be of a piece. Otherwise the ends would fray and then the "do" could look only endy. For easy maintenance, a body permanent comes highly recommended. Such perms provide bounce without curl, a result that suits current styling to a T. Simply dressed, the hair must, have buoyancy or sets quickly droop. Hair must also have polish. And that brings us back to the brush. There just cannot be enough brushing. Life, sheen, perfect grooming—those are the dividends of the brushing ritual. And they never pay better than when hairstyles are uncomplicated, for then you see the hair for what it is without any sort of curly trickery. So brash girls, brush! RULE YOUR WAVES What's your hair problem? You'll find a way to overcome It in my 16-page booklet. "Rule Your Waves." Advice includes: beauty treatments for oily. dry. and normal 'hair; ways to manage unruly locks; how to add color and highlights; tips on cutting, permanents and styling; grooming tricks.

The only major item to show a general increase is eggs, which have risen a cent or two a dozen for most grades and sizes. Lamb chops are a feature in the Midwest and many Northeastern markets also have lamb specials this weekend. Pork attractions include loin roasts, chops, hams, sausage and bacon, with some stores pushing spareribs for late cookouts. Beef bargains lean toward roasts, with one national chain offering boneless round roasts at 79 cents a pound. Ground beef is also widely featured and rib steaks are among Midwestern features. The poultry lineup of small turkeys and fryers was joined tnis week in some regions by stewing hens. Among vegetable offerings, a bumper onion crop commands attention. Other top vegetable buys include com, cabbage, cucumbers, lettuce, peppers, radishes, tomatoes and cauliflower. Fruit attractions abound, with honeydew melons, cantaloup and watermelons still economically priced toward the end of their marketing season while apples, pears and grapefruit are beginning theirs. Grapes are still the best fruit Fall Program for Adults Announced by YWCA The program for fall adult edu-, wants to "dabble" in art. i cation classes and Alton Y-Wives | Mrs. Kay Peterie, fashion co- is announced today by the Young Women's Christian Association.

Putting nuts through the fine blade of a food chopper does not usually give the same effect as grated nuts. Pretty garnish for a warm- weather salad: slices of cooked beet cut into diamond shapes.
