MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY if it is served in unusually pleasant surroundings. There is a physical basis for this combination. Attractive environment encourages a person to relax, and relaxation is conducive to an abundant flow of digestive juices and to the absorption of nutrients into the blood stream. The effect of attractive surroundings is quite similar in other fields. 17 Does tiredness result Answer: Yes, and tiredness tnay also result from underexer- tion. Present-day Americans who have much of their work done for them by machinery often become more tired than ineir grandfathers, who did the same work by hand. The American Medical Association's Committee on Aging reports that many per- aons suffer from fatigue simply because they lack the stimulation of tension. The human body requires exertion, said the A. M A.; that is what it was built for. from overexertlon? Do cheerful surroundings improve health? Answer: That is often the case. Good cooks have long been aware that a meal is enjoyed far more <4> lUtiJ, KlDK J''ealures. Synd., Inc.) Are insects attracted to women? Answer: Union Carbide investigators, working on insect repellents, have found that mosquitoes give more attention to women because they are attracted by perfume. They prefer brunettes to blondes because they arc attracted by dark hair, and tend to avoid elderly people when younger ones are around. However, since mosquitoes dislike cleanliness, they would rath- ei feed on animals than human beings. Only the female bites; the males feed around on shrubs and flowers.

Cooking Cues If you bake your pastry pie shell so that it's a golden brown color, you can pour a hot cream filling into the warm shell. The crust will stay as crisp' as it would if you cooled the filling and shell before combining. Ever barbecue duckling? Cut the bird into quarters and roast in a fairly slow oven until tender. Remove the fat from the pan, brush the duck with a barbecue sauce and return to a hot oven to glaze. MRS. HENRY MRS. KYLE MRS. BROCHE ^MSMliP** 1 *"^ The Family Seams to Me Covering a Box Valance By PATRICIA SCOTT The box valance may be straight and open at the top as in figure 1, or shaped and closed as in figure 5. The boards are covered in fabric to match the draperies and are usually finished along the edges with cording. They can be simply covered and lined, or covered and padded. Both methods are illustrated here. Covered Valance— Open Top (Figure 1); 1. The board must be covered with flannel. Cut the material so it is !-}£ inches wider than the board on all sides. Using heavy thread, catch edges of flannel to each other by taking diagonal stitches as in figure 2A. 2. Cut outside fabric on the crosswise grain the length of board plus "returns" or end sections. To width, add one inch for seams. 3. If you finish with cording, cut a bias strip 2Vfe inches wide. To cover cord for a box valance, fold one edge of strip under % inch (instead of in half as is usually done to cover cord) and place cord in the fold. Stitch close to cord (figure 3). Stitch cording to valance edges with a l ,'z inch seam. 4. Place fabric over board and draw cord to very edge of board. Turn wider edge of bias back and tack cording to board edge through seam allowance (figure 4). Turn wide edge under, tack to board and tack across ends. 5. To line valance, cut lining on crosswise grain the same width and length of board plus end sections. Turn under edges Vz inch and pin as in figure 2B. To slip-stitch lining in place, use a curved needle. Padded Valance- Closed Top (Figure 5); 1. Put cotton padding, one-inch thick, over front of board. Trim padding along edges. Cut outer fabric and flannel lining 3 inches longer and 2Va inches wider than board including end sections. Spread fabric and lining over padding so they extend one inch above the top and IVa inches at each end and bottom edge. Tack fabric to board across top (figure 6), If board is shaped across the bottom, smooth fabric toward edge. Then at the widest part, turn to underside and tack. Clip fabric at points of cutouts or scallops as illustrated. Pull fabric smoothly to underside and tack. 2. If you use cording for edges, cover the cord in the same manner as for plain box open top valance above. Tack to edge of board as in figure 4. Turn wide edge under and stitch to outer fabric, using curved needle and heavy thread. At the top of the board, tack % inch twill tape over fabric edges as in figure 6C.

(AP) —, It seemed like a possible nightmare situation to the St. Joseph's Hospital maternity staff. The two Portuguese mothers-to- be were both named Maria Da silva; it got interesting. The first names of the two Portuguese fathers-to-be were the same, Jose. The plot thickened. And when both mothers were delivered of sons, the danger of a chance mlxup was abundantly clear. To avoid an unhappy aftermath, the mothers were kept in seper- ate wards and the infants, as soon as they were born, were name- tagged. The mothers helped out: 29- year-old Mrs. Dasllva from Brantford named her son Michael. He's her fifth. Twenty-one-year-old Mrs. Dasilva of nearby Scotland named her first born Jose. She commented: "There was no fuss, no trouble. Everything went smoothly." The maternity staff ol St. Joseph's Hospital breathed a sigh of relief.
