Babies born in Alton area A lovelier you Your fiure for 72 By Mary Sue Miller Have you been putting off until September the weight you should start taking off today. Do it or you'll be sorry. Fall fashions look lovelier than in many a season — on a lovely figure that is. Here's an ideal regimen. It will lose up to 10 pounds for you in a month, Meanwhile you will see more glow in your skin and more sheen in your hair. For the foods that keep you trim are packed with the stuff of beauty and vim. To exemplify, a sample of reducing menus: Breakfast. Citrus fruit or juice; boiled egg; slice of whole wheat toast lightly buttered; coffee or skim milk. Luncheon. Chicken bouillon; shrimp marinated in tomato catsup, served on lettuce with sliced green pepper; 2 breadsticks; apple slices topped with wafer-thin sharp cheese; tea with lemon. Dinner. Vegetable juice cocktail; serving of roast lamb; steamed carrots; chilled celery hearts; thin sliced pound cake; demitasse. Now let's analyze the virtues of those menus. Surely there is nothing about them that smacks of starvation. Foods are varied and satisfying, yet well within the reducer's count of 1200 calories. Owing to their high protein and vitamin content they make for general well- being. You can easily pattern diversified and delicious low- cal meals from those menus. That way you just might form a habit of eating for slim, vigorous life style. POCKET CALORIE COUNTER Do you really know the calorie counts of the foods you eat? Our leafet, POCKET CALORIE COUNTER, tells the score at a glance. It also gives a diet plan—a way to eat and slim. For your copy, write to Mary Sue Miller, care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing u long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 15 cents in coin. Cooking cues As an accompaniment to ham or to smoked boned pork shoulder butt, you might like to serve broiled pears. Before broiling fill the pear cavities with mayonnaise seasoned with curry powder and lemon juice; sprinkle with paprika.

I thought it would be your usual column saying something about how women should let their husbands run themselves bowlegged while the wife looks the other way. (This is what I call The Ann Landers Forgive-and-Forget Syndrome.) But it was even worse than that. It quoted a New York doctor as saying "Sex is not only here to stay but it will help you stay here longer" The nut then went onto praise sex as wonderful exercise for the heart," "also a fine tranquilizer" He said, "If a man is in good health, sex will help him stay well" The author didn't say what it would do for the woman who has done a big laundry, ironed nine shrits and chased after three kids all day. In spite of all this gibberish about liberation, women are still enslaved and will remain so for biological reasons. It's a dirty trick, played on them by the Creator and nothing can change THAT. Sign me — POOPED IN PHILADELPHIA. DEAR POOPED IN .PHILLY: If you consider sex a "dirty trick" against women, I feel sorry for your husband — and sorrier for you. "DEAR ANN: In a recent issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine (Great Britain) the following tabulation appeared. I hope you will print it because you reach millions of people who read your column when they can't find time to read anything else. WHAT LIQUOR COSTS (1) America has 9 rrtillion chronic alcoholics. (2) Approximately 200,000 new cases of alcoholism occur every year. (3) Of the 50,000 Americans killed in traffic accidents annually, 28,400 have alcohol in their blood at the time of the accident. (4) Over half a million disabling injuries were •sustained last year in crashes involving problem drinkers. (5) There are 2,000,000 arrests annually for public drunkenness. Rosewood housewife ... Semi-disabled finds painting good therapy By JEAN CAMP Telegraph Staff Writer Painting is marvelous therapy, according to Mrs. Joan Youngberg of Rosewood Heights. "1 am not an expert. I only took up painting about 18 months ago and haven't at- tempted an original on canvas. I do tole and glass painting and I love it. It's done me a world of good and keeps me busy." At the moment, Mrs. Youngberg is working on a collection of "tole" wall plaques and decorative items for the home, painting dimensional pictures on glass and adding to her array of felt Christmas tree ornaments for the Oct. 14-15 Book Fair and Arts and Craft Show of the Wood River American Association of University Women in the Roxarona. Versatile artist Surrounded by her own creations ol fell Christmas tree ornaments and colorful tole painted plaques, Mrs. Joan Youngberg, a newcomer in the Held ol art, demonstrates the assembling ol a dimension floral painting on glass. Mrs. Youngberg had never had a paint brush in her hand until 18 months ago as she had been very busily engaged as a supervisor at J. C. Penney Company's Eastgate store in addition to a full schedule on the home front as the mother of five children (6 to 19 years of age.) A back injury, dating back to her childhood when she was scuffling with a friend, flared up and Joan found herself bedfast for months, unable to walk and more than a little depressed. Surgery followed with two plastic discs implanted in her spine and Joan is delighted with her progress. "I can walk again, 1 can bend my back and ' even do light housework. It would be pretty easy to play helpless and just stay in bed, uul I'm not giving up. I've always been very active and I'm not about to stop now "I've had to give up all my old hobbies. 1 no longer can bowl or even ride a bike. 1 loved sewing and made school clothes for all four of my girls, but that too, is a thing of the past. "Searching for something to do, 1 hit on tole painting and il was just what 1 needed. It's a fascinating hobby and I've gone all out with it. It gives me something to do with my hands and my mind. It's challenging and demundiii" and 1 just love it." Her expertise in tole painting is in evidence throughout her home by beautiful plaques, pictures and wall hangings of flowers, vegetables, mice and scenics painted in true colors with such intricate detailing and shading as to look like photographic reproductions. Tole painting is a very ancient art and is familiar to most homemakers as decorative lacquered or enameled metalware and was especially popular as a decoration for kitchen utensils in the 1800's. "It is more a technique, or a step by step process," Mrs. Youngberg told the Telegraph "First you apply your pattern with graphite paper. Using oil paints, you put on the basic colors, then go right ahead with the detail and shading as oil paint doesn't run or bleed. You can use tole painting on anything: wood, glass, canvas, tin or any kind of metal. After your design has dried, you coat it with varnish. Sometimes I use 15 coats, sanding and buffing between each coat. "It's really not. hard to do but it helps if you have a little talent." Mrs. Youngberg took lessons for five months and then joined Maude's Tole class in St. Louis. She is continuing her .study in advanced to'.e painting with Mrs. Doris Johnson and has advanced to glass dimensional painting. "It's a little unique. You paint a little of your design on each of four pieces of clear glass and when combined they give the impression of the design being formed of natural materials. It's (i real fun hobby." Mrs. Youngberg hopes to take up china painting and perhaps become a teacher some day. "Arthritis complicates the condition in my back and eventually I will have to have further surgery when they will fuse the vertabrae. I will put that off until I urn no longer able to stand the pain," the young artist told the Telegraph. "I'm very excited ab<;mt the Art Show and know I will enjoy it even if I doift sell i. single piece of my wcfrk." (6) Americans spent over 21 billion dollars for alcohol last year. (7) The time lost from work, the damage to property by drunks, and the cost in welfare was over 15 billion dollars in 1971. (8) Over half the states report that alcoholism is the most frequent diagnosis for first-time admissions to state hospitals. (9) One third of all suicides are alcohol related. (10) Insurance statistics reveal a 10 to 12 year decrease in life expectancy among alcoholics. (11) Nearly one third of all cases handled in child guidance centers show one or both parents are involved with chronic alcoholism. How long will it take before the public wakes up to the menace of alcohol? Is drinking liquor worth what it costs? — A READER WHO LEARNED THE HARD WAY DEAR READER: I don't know how long it will take, but I am not optimistic about the chances for getting nine million bozers off the sauce. What we must do is find out why so many people must anesthetize themselves against the pain of daily living. Alcoholism is a symptom of other problems. Confidential to A Worried Mother Who Needs Some Suggestions: Turn off the TV for ten minutes and give your young children a lecture of the dangers of accepting rides with strangers. Train them to let you know where they are at all times and to feel free to discuss anything and everything — no matter what. There is a big difference between cold and cool. Ann Landers shows you how to play it cool without freezing people out in her booklet, "Teen-Age Sex — Ten Ways To Cool It." Send 50 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope to the Alton Evening Telegraph.

Whether you're searching for an antique Hepplewhite desk or just an old rocker to refinish, Pennsylvania, with its raft of antique auctions and fairs, flea markets and shops, would be a good place to look. As one of the earliest settled territories in the New World, the state abounds with just the right type ot collectibles and sales to fit every personality and pocketbook. And chances are that a Pennsylvanian handcrafted what you're looking for and his ancestors only recently found it stashed in a far corner of their attic. Antique collectors who thrive on the selection and excitement generated by a full-scale auction or fair can spend their vacations this season circling the state for "le grande tour", of Pennsylvania's trash and treasures. Starting in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Area Council on Tourism opened a giant flea market on Aug. 6 in Judge Lewis Quadrangle Park, north of Independence Hall. Called the Independence Mall Flea Market, it is scheduled to have about 120 booths grouped into three sections: art, craft and quality antiques. Open every Sunday until Nov. 4, the Independence Mall show costs $1.00 per person with the proceeds going to local charities. Live music will provide an historical atmosphere. Moving west from Philadelphia, the one-time capital of . our nation, antique enthusiasts can drive into Chester County. Chester, one of the three original counties formed by the Quarkers under Penn's charter in 1682, is a particularly good source of Americana and yields a type of craftsmanship distinctly different form the Philadelphia brand. Continuing over the southern chain of the Blue Ridge Mountains, visitors can take time out to tour the 109-year-old Gettysburg Battlefield. In the western end of the Commonwealth, near Ambridge, the intrepid antique fancier can arrive in Old Economy, "the village that time forgot", in time for the town's annual antique fair held September 14-16. Old Economy, situated not far from the intersection of the Ohio and Beaver Rivers, was originally the home of a 19th century German religious sect who took great pride in their craftsmanship because they believed their, goods would accompany them when the end of the world shortly arrived. And for the antique hunter who likes the personal attention and folklore of a shopkeeper, Pennsylvania has thousands of antique and "nice junk" stores scattered throughout the Commonwealth. Vivian Conklin, secretary of the National Association of Dealers in Antiques, Inc., said she personally loves the Lancaster, King of Prussia, Douglassville, Boyertown, and Kutztown areas of Southeastern Pennsylvania and finds "good antiquing all around there." One tip for the shopper to remember is to call ahead. A telephone call may save you the cost of traveling miles only to find a closed door. Another item to keep in mind is that with the increase in one-man antique operations, "by appointment only" hours are becoming more and more the custom. Now for the bargain hunter who wants to avoid the middleman of a dealer or the markup of a fair, Pennsylvania is "the" place for public sales and estate liquidations held throughout the year. Check the regular listing and advertisements in known antique magazines and newspapers for hints, but if you're interested in actual dollars and cents, your best bet will probably be the classified section of local newspapers. A typical ad will specify the contents of an entire house, possibly with such finds as a bent-glass china cupboard, a hand-wind Victrola, and several pieces of Depression glass. (These, of course, can also be found in many areas in and around your own home town.) Newly-married and apartment dwellers as well as homeowners who want a certain piece to fill out their living room decor are finding that it pays to check out these sales. Recycling furniture is catching on. And if you're coming from out-of-town, local newspapers can usually be obtained through the local travel b'ureau, the chamber of commerce or by writing to the newspaper itself. Pennsylvania shops specialize in all sorts of collectors' delights including gaudy Welsh and glass lampshades, mechanical banks, paperweights, country, formal or rare American furniture and paintings, American silver, rare violas, violins and other musical instruments, pitcher and bowl sets and bits of orientalia. And if you have your heart set on a rare English poacher or grave-robbers gun circa 1800, some are available in Erie County, northwestern Pennsylvania. The northern tier of the Commonwealth, running from Tioga to Susquehanna Counties, has a particularly varied assortment of antique shops. The Pennsylvania Travel Development Bureau, South Office Building, Harrisburg, Penn., 17120, has more information. Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWELL Can a wile ior^j forgetfulnessV To be wed in September The engagement aifd approaching marriage of Miss MISS Jandra Lee Gares and Stephen Douglas Bast is being announced by the bride-elect's parents, Mrs. Rose Gare§ of 1109 Meadow Dr., Cottage Hills, and Wesley Gares of Pensacola, Fla.
