The Family Seams to Me Basic Hints on Technique By PATRICIA SCOTT For the beginner who is just learning to sew, here are some hints that might prove to be helpful. 1. There are two ways of placing pins on fabric. If you are fitting a part of a garment to you that is only pinned but not basted, the pins are placed along the seam and dart lines just as you would stitch (figure 1). If you are pinning pieces together with the purpose of basting or machine stitching, place pins across seam line as in figure 2. Be sure to have heads of pins toward cut edge of fabric, as shown. In this way you can machine stitch over pins if you wish. 2. When making permanent hand stitch, the thread should be no longer than 30 inches. Otherwise it may snarl as you sew. For basting or tailor's tacks the thread can be longer because you use it up faster, lessening the chance of knots. When cutting a strand from the spool, cut across the thread diagonally for a clean sharp point, making it easier to thread the needle. 3.To fasten the end of a line of hand sewing securely, take several small stitches, one on top of the other. Make them on underside of garment or where they will not show. 4. To hold a needle and use a thimble correctly, hold the needle between the thumb and the index finger of the right hand. The thimble should always be at eye-end of the needle so the grooves on its side catch the needle as you sew (see figure 3). If working on heavy fabric, push the needle with the end of the thimble. 5. Almost all hand sewing is done with fabric held in the hands. The seam should be "up" with the rest of the fabric down in your lap. Hold the seam and sew from right to left, unless a special stitch must be made from left to right (figure 3). However, two types of-basting are more easily done when the fabric is flat on a table. They are uneven basting, used to transfer markings to the right side of the fabric as for a center front-line, and diagonal basting, used to accurately match two layers of fabric. 6. You may have trouble with silk thread twisting as you sew. To remove the twist you must unwind the strand until it lies flat. To avoid twisting, run your thread across beeswax before you start to sew. Mercerized cotton thread is no problem. If it twists, just let the needle hang down for a minute and it will unwind itself. 2. ?! I f 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 mail received dally, she cannot answer individual letters. Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, How To Alter Your Dress Patterns, which gives complete Instructions for altering so that finished garments will fit perfectly.

DEAR ANN: Please print this letter for the woman who signed herself, "Gypsy." She is the rich widow who is trying to buy ." a husband. She ', says she is miser. able and lonely ' and her money _ is not bringing Her happiness. She .wants a husband 'and is willing to pay for one. Well, Gypsy, you can have my Ann Landers, lummox if you will pay for the divorce. He is exactly what you are looking for. Ed is in his middle 50's, nice looking, enjoys a good time and would just love to relax and let somebody support him. Maybe for you, Gypsy, he would bathe and shave and get dressed up once in a while. For me he figures it's good enough to look like a bum. And you would never be lonesome with Ed around because all he does is talk talk talk talk talk. But don't try to say anything, because his opinions are the only ones worth listening to. Let me know if you want him. I'll send the jerk C.O.D. —MRS. HAD IT DEAR MRS. IT: Sorry, but when I checked with the postal authorities recently I learned it is against the law to send dead dogs in the mail. The same rules apply to fifth rate husbands. DEAR ANN: My husband's oldest sister was widowed seven years ago. Her children are grown and she has a beautiful home, a nice income and a complete life. She has been the head of numerous important charity drives in the community and she is considered socially prominent. We just learned that she is serious about marrying a man who clerks in a department store. They've been keeping steady company for several months but we never dreamed it would blossom into anything like marriage. To say we are shocked is putting it mildly. This man is very ordinary in looks and his personality is nothing to write home about. If my sister-in-law marries him it will certainly damage her socially and she will be dropped by some of her better friends. I don't think she sees how this marriage will change her life totally. Please print this letter. She needs your advice badly. —LAKE FOREST DEAR LAKE: She didn't ask for my advice and I'll bet she didn't ask for yours either. You are right when you say this marriage might change her life. It could change it for the better. So why don't you get busy with a charity drive yourself,: Toots? I don't think you have enough to do. # * # # DEAR ANN: I'm 16 years old, no great beauty but I'm not what • College Notes you'd call ugly either. I've got a nice figure, look well in my clothes and I'm neat. I'd give anything if I could be popular with boys, butyl guess I never will be because 1 dpn^t know .how. My girl friend : has,-fellows running after her all. the, time. I can't figure out how she does it. She isn't beautiful—in fact, she's far from it, but she t , has a way with fellows that really clicks. She get three or four phone calls every night. Boys ask her to help them with school work, although she almost flunked math and science. They flock around her after class and date her up for school parties months in advance. Why does she ' succeed with what seems like no effort? And why do I fail when I ".try so hard?—MISS BLAH DEAR MISS: The prettiest girl has no "lock on popularity and neither does the brainiest. Your friend has learned ho'w to make boys comfortable. They enjoy themselves .when they are with her. She is both interesting and interested. Listed to her and watch her when she is with boys. You'll learn something.

Fifth St. Just Like Nature By MARY SUB MltLBB What does your make-up do for you, or against you? When did you last take a critical look? The time is ripe for an appraisal. The same old make-up and new fall fashions can be entirely out of key. Certainly those blobs of eyeshadow, still or< the scene, are not cued to the whangee nonchalance of daytime clothes. What's wanted is a fresh, natural make-up—one that makes the most of your endowments without "advertising" the cosmetics used. And praise be, for a lovely's face is never more charming than when its beauty appears to be spontaneous. The first step to an ideally natural make-up is a warm glow for the skin. It can be achieved in several ways: with a pink- laced powder base; with skin- toned base, topped either with a blush of rouge or worn over pink pre-foundation. As for application, use a light hand with rouge and pre-foundation. But be generous with powder base—spread it liberally, let it set, and then blot with tissue until only a film remains. After a fluff of powder, the effect has the diffused radiance of complexion perfection. It is furthered by soft gray, golden brown or off-white shadow, applied as an eye highlight rather than a headlight. Liner and mascara, when used, are never anything but discreet. A glowing lipstick, buoyant in color and satin-y in texture, is the finish. And what a finish! Like nature's best efforts! © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Born to Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Kronable, Rte. 1, Moro, a daughter, Victoria Lynn, 8 pounds, 2 ounces, Saturday, St. Joseph's Hospital, Highland.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY tivities to prepare them for marriage, but always bearing in mind that they may remain single. If preparation for marriage leads a young miss to assume that she will marry and have a family, it may serve to pressure her into an unhappy or unsatisfactory union. Or it may serve as a lifetime burden if she remains single, because of preference or necessity. It> childhood (he happiest time? Answer: Rarely, except in retrospect. Nostalgic elders tend to remember childhood as free of troubles and worries because they no longer fear bears in the hallway. They remember picnics and skating and forget unhappy nights of home-work and darkness. Theodore Dreiser once commented that "only unhappy adults think of their childhood as being completely happy. They are trying to substitute a world they never had for a world they cannot have." Should young girls be trained lor marriage? Answer: As a rule, no. They should be given suggestions and Instructions in homemaking ac«D l«63, King Features, Synd., Inc.) Are mnemonic devices an aid (o learning? Answer: Yes, but in the 1 o n g haul tjjey probably dp more harm than good. A mnemonic device is .actually an aid to memory, such as the "thirty days hath September" rhyme that cues us in on the number of days jn each month- .This is all right for simple facts, but when applied to literature, geometry, etc., the student ip likely to bog down in his tricky mnemonic devices. In that cage he would lose out on the real meaning of the subject'mat- ter that he needs to learn. s
