Cooking Cues Your family will probably consider a creamed dish a treat if you top it with chow-mein noodles. Heat the noodles before serving. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY nature, but today authorities consider it to be no more so than slavery, or human sacrificial rites. The nature of persons in one society may differ markedly from that in others, according to the values which shape their attitudes. As a rule, persons who insist that human nature can't be changed are those who stand to lose the most if a change occurs. Do comics uppeul to all youngsters? Answer: Yes, studies reported by Mary arid Lawrence K. Frank in "How to Help Your Child in School" show that comic strips appeal to youngsters regardless of their reading ability. A child may have been reared in a sophisticated, literary family, and may consume books avidly after learning to read, but is still apt to enjoy comics. They frequently give Children (both good and poor readers) a refreshing reading experience unlike that found in their school books. Can you change human nature? Answer; Yes, but no one knows exactly what human nature is. For example, war was once considered part of human (0 1063, King Features, Synd.. Inc > 1 Are all boys car-crazy? Answer: Most boys are, unless they receive education and guidance that helps them understand their excitement before they are old enough to drive an automobile. Dr. Paul Z. Kaunitz of Yale University School of Medicine found that today's daredevil attitude toward speed and ears is a kind of puberty rite, like the Zuni Indian ritual that initiates young braves into manhood. The Zunis beat the lads with sticks; in our case society takes the beating. Date Book (Date Book Items must be submitted before Thursday noon.)

Clothes may look easy and undemanding, but it's not necessarily so. More feminine allure is needed to carry off trenchcoats and fedoras than ruffles and hair- bows. Otherwise, wearing fashions borrowed from the male, a lovely would look man-tailored. Surely the aim is to look girl- tailored. The crux is in beautiful grooming and carriage—in the glow and grace of Garbo and Dietrich, those wearers extraordinary of slouch hats and slack suits. Where does it begin, this special brand of allure? The origin is in fanatical attention to the personal grooming rites. For from those techniques there flowers a freshness and sparkle that's irresistibly all-girl. After that?: A smooth-flowing hairstyle, always smoothly kept; a flawless make-up, and one so natural that its beauty seems to come from within. Neither a blatant make-up nor yet a couldn't-care-less bare face can enhance a tailor-maid. Nor do slumps, clumps and sprawls. You have to stand tall, sit pretty and glide walk. For the feminine set, impeccable carriage and impeccable tailoring are counterparts. Else the feminine casual can become a mannish casualty. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Dale Henderson, Rte. 1, Alton, a daughter, Carolyn Kay, 8 pounds 7 ounces, today at 4:58 a.m. Alton Memorial Hospital.

My mother is a very nice person but she is not a very good barber. She cuts my hair and my little brother's, too, and k s/ she does a lousy [' job of it. For a week after a haircut, I am ashamed to leave the house. All the <S«rV;.guys in the neigh- 1 " borhood ask me when I am going to the electric chair. Ann Landers. I have told my dad how I feel about this but he says haircuts by barbers cost a lot of money and we can't afford it. He also says my hair grows like a weed and I'd have tii go every other week. Is there a solution to my problem? Or do I just have to suf- fer with it until I am old enough to earn some money so I can buy haircuts on my own? —SHAVED RAT DEAR S.R.: Ask your dad if he will take you to a barber college. The prices are cheaper there because students do the cutting. The price of haircuts is no jnke these days. But they haven't gone up any more than most other commodities and services. It just seems that way to us old fogies who remember when a shave and a haircut was two- bits. * * • • DEAR ANN: Our daughter who is 17 invited a college roommate whom I will call Helena to spend two weeks with us. It's too late to do anything about this guest but I am writing to settle a few questions for next time. College Notes Miss Cheryl Spooner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Spooner, 943 W.

Student Nurse Miss Martha Heuer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leland Heuer of Dorsey was one of 73 students in the freshman class at St. Luke's Hospital School of Nursing, St. Louis. Our daughter feels that since Helena has grown up in great wealth, and is accustomed to having servants wait on her hand and foot, she should not have been expected to do any housework while she was a guest in our home. Our own daughter pressed Helena's dresses and picked up after her. It annoyed me when Helena would gab on the phone by the hour while our daughter made both their beds and served her guest coffee—presumably to give her strength to hang on the phone for another hour. We just put Helena on the plane and our daughter and I had a long discussion. She feels she was a perfect hostess and that I am wrong to criticize her for catering to the girl. We would like your opinion.—MMM DEAR MMM: The guest sounds thoroughly spoiled and ungracious. A lady does not make a servant out of her hostess. Since your daughter cheerfully played handmaiden to her friend, however, I see no reason for you to criticize her. This was strictly between them. If you had been left with the extra work I'd have offered vastly different advice. * * * * DEAR ANN: Maybe you or some of your readers can help me. I am a woman past 40, never married, and have kept myself busy and content with a multitude of interests. About three years ago a close male relative for whom I've always had a great deal of affection and respect, started to keep company with a girl 20 years his junior. These two have been carrying on an immoral relationship and everyone in town knows it. What I want to know is this: What is the correct way for me to think about this relationship? How do people deal with an ugly affair which reflects dishonor on the whole family? I need an answer.—LIBRA. DEAR LIBRA: You say you've kept yourself busy with a multitude of interests. Perhaps you have not kept yourself busy enough. It's always sad when people whom we admire and respect disappoint us, but a mature individual does not allow himself to become unglued because others do not live up to his standards. One of the secrets of real contentment is to live and let live. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Mother's Helper by Heimonn fir Ptotion 1-ro A TODDLER who's used to brothers and sisters around the house may be pretty lonesome when they'all •<• off to school.
