MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY in-breeding among persons of superior capability has lessened their contribution to the next generation's gene pool. Second, below-average persons share the benefits of technological achievements of superior persons. Hence they can make a living and reproduce as successfully, thereby contributing more non-superior genes to posterity. Can advertising sell Inferior products'.' Art-, speeders a liiglmuy Answer: Intensive advertising may do so for a short time, but HIP result is often finunciully disastrous. Today's buyer is well- informed in so many fields that an inferior product simply won't last. Competition is for both consumer and retailer. If the product is sub-standard the consumer won't buy it again, despite radio, TV, newspapers, magazines, billboards or sky - writing. And if the consumer won't buy it, the retailor will no longer give it shelf loom. lt> Ilic human bruin getting » Aiisucr: Harvard evolutionist Ki'nM M;i.vi' believe* IJii 1 human brain is Celling smaller, for two reason:*.

A Lovelier You »?«& 'v ***•*•*The Family The Grower's Art Petunias for the Most Show And the Least Money FRED. By I'KED CLAUSEN Telegraph (Jarden Columnist This time of year we can look back and take stock of what flowers gave us the most show for our money. In my book I think the Potunia takes first place. The new F. I. hybrids arc lops. They don't sprawl all over like they used to, but keep pretty well within bounds. They must be planted new every year, as the seed collected from them produce very inferior plants and flowers. If you haven't tried the double Gloriosa Daisy, by all means try some next year. They can be sown right in the open and will bloom in late summer. Started plants bloom sooner. The flowers last longer than any other I can think of. They're mostly yellow, some with brownish flowers. A few will be single. They grow about 24 to 30 inches tall. Watched three squirrels in a box elder tree today. They were feeding on the now almost ripe seeds. They picked the seeds, one or two at a time, ate the kernels and dropped the rest— then reached for some more. They sure looked better in a tree than they would in a frying pan. Ann Landers DEAR MR. CLAUSEN: For ten years I have been trying to coax an ivy plant to climb a brick wall. I don't know the particular species of this plant, but it was taken from an old plant which was a climber. It has an abundance of little "grabbers" on the stems, but upon contact with the brick they merely turn brown and do not hold. 1 have tried taping the stems to the wall and using chicken wire to hold it close but to no avail. Can you tell me how to make it stick and climb? MRS. R. SCHRIEBER Wood River ANSWER: I have had good success by planting ivy (English) close to the wall and letting them grow he first summer. The following spring I cut the top off about three inches above ground. The new shoots will come out in different directions and the ones pointing toward the wall will stick. The ones growing away from the wall should be cut away. Now this applies to north, east and west sides of the house. The south side of a brick wall gets too hot for ivy plants. Try to get some cuttings from a different source in late winter, root them in water, and plant them in early spring. Good luck this time. '.: !j: -i'' -i* DEAR MR. CLAUSEN: In the Sept 18 issue of the Telegraph you stated that Currant Bushes (geraniums) are perfectly hardy without any protection here. I have always struggled to keep cuttings growing through the winter for early planting in the spring. Is there really a way to keep these plants without taking them up in the fall? If so, should they be cut back and covered? When and how much? My plants have been phenomenal this year and I would love to find an easier way to keep them over. However, mine are planted in an Island planter box on the west side of the house that is. the box is exposed on all four sides, and might be more subject to freeze than if it were attached to the house. ANSWER: There were two questions last week. One for geraniums and one for currant bushes. Currants (both red and black) are hardy bushes. Geraniums in our locality are annual bedding plants. Try cuttings as recommended Sept. 18. When frost threatens, dig or pull old geranium plants. Cut top off to within four inches of roots, let them lie exposed to the air for several hours to heal up. Then put them in plastic bags and keep cool (in basement* until after the new year. Then put them in smallest pot possible, give lots of light and very little water. All geraniums are sensitive to too much water and big pots. If you have questions on gardening mail them to Fred Clausen in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, He will answer them in his column. Adoring Mother Can't Understand DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been trying to write this letter for several days but I become so furious every time I think about it I am unable to gather my thoughts. Our son was not accepted into kindergarten this fall because he will not be five years old until November 15th. James is an unusually precocious child. He has been reading for almost a year. He began reciting poetry from memory when he was two and a half, and I don't mean little nursery rhymes. James prefers classics. Three children in this block were accepted into kindergarten simply because they were born from seven to twelve weeks earlier than our James. None of these children are particularly bright. I refuse to believe that they are better prepared for school than our son. When are the schools going to remodel the archaic entrance requirements and take into consideration the total child instead of just his birthday? INDIGNANT DEAR IN: It's awfully hard for a teacher or a superintendent to tell an adoring mother mat Ann Landers. her genius son (who may well be brilliant) is not emotionally ready for school. The child who is reciting Keats may not be ready for kindergarten, regardless of his mother thinks. It is true that some older children are not ready either, but the most workable overall rule of thumb is to establish an age for entrance and stick to it. fc •'.( V ; . DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm sure you do some good, but I want you to know that you do some harm once in a while, too. A cousin of mine is getting married around Christmas. He asked me to be his best man at his wedding and I said I would. He then asked me if I owned a tux and f said, "No". He told me 1 would have to rent one because the wedding Is going to be a fancy affair. When I asked who was going to pay for the tux rental he said, "Ann Landers says you are." 1 think tills is all wrong and I don't care who says otherwise. I didn't ask my cousin if I could be his best man. He asked me. Why should I have to pay money out of my own pocket to do him a favor? Please print this right away and tell me if you actually made up this crazy law. It doesn't sound like you. But then, you hear from so many nuts it's possible that you have turned a lit- tle nutty yourself. Thank you. BROKE DEAR BROKE: Yes, I do hear from some nuts, but then I get some lovely letters from charming people like you, so it evens out. I did not make up the "law". It is a tradition that the members of the wedding party pay for their own outfits. It is considered an honor and a privilege to have been selected—and honors and privileges often entail responsibilities. Born to: Mr. and Mm.

My nose is so big and ugly that just looking Into the mirror makes me want to crawl into my shell, and I sometimes do. I would like to have on operation, but I get no support fmn my family and friends. Their attitude implies that I am vain and foolish. The Answer: One case history will serve to illuminate the subject. Its heroine is a college girl. She sat hi a corner at parties, never saying a word. She wore bookish glasses, drab clothes, no make-up and a dour expression. Anyone who cared to investigate found that she had beautiful eyes and a winsome mouth, but that those features were eclipsed by an awesome nose. Then our girl had her nose "altered." And the change was terrific, not just in her face but in her attitudes. She became interested in her dress, make-up and hair, with striking results. Better still, she developed into a charming witty companion. She found herself! And therein is the greatest boon of plastic surgery—the personality has a chance to flower when the physical embarrassments are removed. So saying, let's look at the practical side: It is first necessary to have one's own physician recommend a surgeon. Then, in consultation with the surgeon, a decision is made on precisely how the nose should be reshaped and the operation is scheduled. Recovery times takes about two weeks, or until swelling subsides. The operation is not inexpensive. t£i Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Recent Weddings March-Gross Miss Joyce Gross, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Gross of Carlinville, became the bride of Gary March, son of Mrs. Doris Culbreth of Hettick, and Charles March of Alton, Sunday, in St. Paul's United Church of Christ, Carlinville.
