It was announced that a workshop for Illinois Federation of Women's club members interested in TV and radio education will be held Oct. 11 in the State Museum at Springfield. Cooking Cues A crown .roast of lamb deserves an elegant garnish. When you bring the roast to the table, place big pitted green olives (pimiento stuffing removed) over the rib ends. Use the tiny strips of pimiento you take out of the olives in a salad or as a garnish for some other dish. When you are cutting the kernels from fresh uncooked cobs of corn, don't cut too deeply into the hulls. Hard shell crabs should be alive when you buy them unless they are sold cooked and have been kept under refrigeration. MISS FAIRLESS MISS MYATT MISS VENTIMIGLIA The Family Ann Landers His Dislike of Her Nail Polish Left Her in Shock DEAR ANN: A referee is needed. Will you serve? I have been told for as long as I can remember that I have very beautiful hands. My nails are long and the type that do not ^break. It so hap* pens that I espe- j cially like plati- |num frosted nail I polish. I keep I my nails perfectly 1 manicured and I people are always fcommenting on t them. ___^___,,., The other eve- Ann Landers, ning, much to my surprise, the man I've been going with for several months said, "Why don't you stop wearing that hideous nail polish? Your nails look like an eagle's talons." I was dumbfounded but made a quick recovery and told him I would,choose the kind of nail polish I liked—and for the time being I like this. Do you feel perhaps I should do as he suggests just to please him? Or should I refuse to be pushed around?—TARSUS DEAR TARSUS: I don't see any evidence that he is trying to push you around. The man simply let you know he doesn't like your nail polish. I say stop wearing the platinum frosted stuff. If your nails and hands are as lovely as you say, any shade of polish will look well. The man will be flattered and you will have lost nothing. (P.S. I agree with him. I don't like that platinum frosted stuff, either.) * * * * DEAR ANN: We moved into our new home only a few days ago. It is a charming place, just what we've been looking for—but I think we may have trouble with the woman next door. I'm writing to ask how to handle the problem before it starts. When our van of furniture pulled up this neighbor hauled a lawn chair over to the edge of her property—as close to ours as she could get. She sat there the whole time the van was unloading, examining every piece of furniture as it was carried into our home. I'm worried about a woman who has so much free time that she can spend an afternoon this way. I've never had any trouble with neighbors and I don't want any now. From her looks I can tell she is not the type I'd care to have anything to do with. How can I be cool without being cold? —STORM WARNING DEAR STORM: I know of no personality thermometer which registers degrees, but most people recognize a chilly hello when they hear it. If you will keep your hello at about 60 degrees Fahrenheit you'll have no problem. » * * * DEAR ANN: My husband and I have been married six years. We have passed our 70th birthdays but you would not think so if you saw us on the ballroom floor. The problem I'm writing about is not a serious one, in fact it is not really a problem—but a question which needs an answer. My husband was married to his first wife for 40 years. I was married to my first husband for 37 years. We have discussed our burial plans in a sensible and realistic way. We both agree that each of us should be buried beside our first mates in our respective family plots. What I do not know, however, is which name I should be buried under. How should the headstone read? Since I will be resting next to my first husband should I be buried under his name? Thank you. —TWICE BLESSED DEAR BLESSED: The name on the headstone should read: Mrs. Alice Smith (your first husband's name) Jones (your second husband's name). Does almost everyone have a good time but you? If so, send for Ann Landers booklet, "How To Be Well Liked." enclosing with your request 20c in coin and a long, self - addressed, stamped envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY tances, and under less hazardous conditions. The National Safety Council has estimated that men drive three times as many miles as women. Relating that to t h e total of registered drivers and their involvement in accidents, Northwestern University's Traffic Institute finds the accident rate for women is 300 for each 1,000 drivers, compared to 235 for men. IB Hunch a good time to trammel business? Answer: Businessmen say it Is, and they are probably right from the business point of view. However, the business lunch is not a good habit from the standpoint of eating. Digestive apparatus does not function properly when disappointment, anger or excitement is experienced, and these emotions are likely to arise in a touch-and-go business transaction. The so-called business luncheon may explain why so many businessmen are troubled by nervous indigestion. Are men bettor drivers than women? Answer: Yes, but smile when you say it. Actually women have fewer accidents than men, but they usually drive shorter dis- (45 itttu, King Feature*, Synd.. lac.) Do I.Q. scores gauge creativity? Answer: No, and the belief that they do has deprived society of much creative talent. Many IQ questions iiuvc a predetermined "best" answer and a creative child may get a low score because he sees more than one best answer. Creativity can be detected in various ways. Intelligent curiosity is one. Among others are a flexible approach to problems, originality of ideas, sense of fantasy, ability to work alone, and a quick detection of misinformation.

Top In Its Field Long rated the top professional group in its field, the original dePaur Chorus toured for 10 years following World War II and holds the all-time record of 180 North American concerts in a single season. The new chorus of 28 voices present an expanded repertoire encompassing folk music of all nations, including the new African states, as well as contemporary works, early choral masterpieces, and traditional choral fare. Ara Berberian. who took part In the 1963 Festival Casals, has sung with leading symphonies and opera companies, with the Robert Shaw Chorale as soloist in Bach's Mass in B minor, and on NBC and CBS television. His engagements for this season include performances with the Dallas, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia orchestras and with the Philadelphia Grand Opera Co. and Little Orchestra Society. Bramwell Fletcher, a leading stage actor fresh from a long engagement in "My Fair Lady" and a dramatic role in "The Cherry Orchard," reveals the thinking of such timeless authors as Thurber, Marquis, Camus, Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, and Shaw, in his "Parnassus '63." His three-part program, which he divides into "tameless and swift," "men of earth," and "this uncertain age," encompasses readings from prose and poetry ranging in emotion from the mysterious and tragic to the light.
