Weekly Food Review Fall Market Pressures Force Pork, Turkey Down By ASSOCIATED PRESS Pork and chickens will be cheaper in many supermarkets this weekend as fall marketing pressures force prices down. Beef and turkey will be slightly lower. Some shops have specials on lambs. Not only are main-course prospects bright, but most areas still have a wide range of fresh vegetables at near-seasonal lows. Pork features include both fresh and cured varieties. Beef buys abound in some areas, with chuck and round cuts especially inviting. Several stores have features on liver, corned beef and ground beef. Other protein offerings currently lower priced include tuna, peanut butter, sardines and dairy products. Vegetable features include green beans, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, tomatoes and squash. Grapes and apples continue to lead the fruit parade, with honeydew melons big features in many sections. Pears, dates, cranberries and grapefruit are appearing in increasing volume. Rice and edible oils are other attractions this week and the pecan crop shows signs of being a whopper. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEV One of the early symptoms of mental illness is a relinquishment of friendly socializing, recreation and accepted social customs. This symptom may be noted while the individual is still carrying on his business or job effectively. When seclusiveness persists without apparent cause, it would seem wise to consult a physician. Do warnings do more harm than good? Answer: Not often, but occasionally they challenge the person being warned. A classic example is the story of the mother, about to leave for the corner grocery, warning her child not to stick beans in his nose. A recent wave of self-induced fainting in England was probably prolonged when the method (withheld here) was described in detail. Human curiosity being what it is, we like to experiment with new ideas, even when a minor element of danger is involved. Iti hodal withdrawal a bud sign? Anbwcr: Yes, unless there are sound reasons, not apparent to others, lor a person's becoming more seclusive than he once was. ($/ 1963, King features. Synd., Inc.) lias mind reading been confirmed? Answer: Not to the satisfaction of the U. S. Air Force, which has been trying to develop an objective test of extrasensory perception, not to prove or disprove its existence. The experiment, conducted with 45 volunteer subjects, found not one who showed unusual abilily either in predicting events or determining (clairvoyantly or telepathically) that a particular event had taken place. The conclusion was that such phenomena, when they do occur, result from pure chance. msm^m*** 1 ^ The Family Seams to Me Pattern Instructions Important If You Are Inexperienced By PATRICIA SCOTT If you're an inexperienced seamstress and plan to make your first winter coat, study the pattern instruction sheet carefully before starting the job. * * * * Q. I'm going to make my first winter coat and want to be sure I do everything right. I've looked at some of my other coats and notice that the hems are stitched differently from regular ones. The stitch looks something like a cross stitch but I can't seem to do it. Please advise me.—MISS V. McG. ' A. This is the catch stitch. It's used so that there is lots of play between the layers of fabric you join. Also if done properly, there will be no marks em tlje right side of the coat after the hem is pressed. Unlike most other stitches, this one is made from left to right but with the needle still pointing toward the left. Fasten thread in hem. Take a sniall back stitch near where the thread came out on the coat. Take another stitch like the first, % inch to the right in the hem, but through only one layer of fabric. Con- tinue these zigzag stitches in the hem and in the garment until the hem is finished (see illustration). » * * * Q. How can I salvage some old terry towels? They are perfectly good, except the selvage edges have become frayed. If I can fix them I can use them for the family and save my good ones for guests.—MRS. T. C. A. Bind each selvage with double-fold bias tape to match the towels. * * * * Q. After numerous dry clean. ings, my zippers often grind and stick and I have trouble pulling them closed. What can be done?—MISS L. M. A. The original lubrication has been exhausted, so you'll have to relubricate the zippers. Either buy a special lubrication or beeswax at a notions counter. * * * * Q. Tailor's chalk is wonderful ... the first time you use it. After that it seems to dry up and it's almost impossible to get a mark. So?—MISS J. S. A. So ... use a knife to sharpen the entire edge of the chalk. You'll then get a good, definite mark. 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 mall received daily, she cannot answer individual letters. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate For Next Week Elementary School Menus Alton MONDAY: Italian spaghetti, lettuce, buttered bread, milk, school boy apple or brownie.

So does every man—so no cracks from the male contingent, please! Each of those holes forms an outlet for one hair, but that is not to say all of them sprout hair. There'd be no balding or thinning, if a hair emerged from every opening. And, among the feminine population, thinning is on the increase. Science, fully aware of the problem, Is giving it careful attention. In the meantime lovelies cast about for their own solutions. And there's where they run into more fiction than fact. To set the record straight, this rundown of Fiction vs. Fact: —Hair cosmetics cause falling hair. Improper use of tints, sprays and perms may trigger breakage, but it is not a proven contributor to hair that comes out by the roots. —Hair-dressing methods trigger the trouble. Could be! Leave wet hair in rollers for hours, wind the hair to the straining point, or habitually wear a tightly drawn hairstyle—and you may run into a fall-out situation. As for dryers, if they are regulated on warm, they save tresses hours of strain from wet and rollers. —The good of tonics is a myth. Realy good tonics coupled with massage stimulate the scalp's health. And the scalp is the garden soil of the hair. —You inherit beautiful hair. That you do but, having been born with it, you can make a mess of it through abuse or carelessness. Tresses must be nurtured from the side and out. Gentle care conditions the surface; diet that emphasizes protein and vitamins is the key to the soundness of basic structure. TRIMMERS AND SUMMERS Let me help you with the problem of a too-fleshy arm. chest or upper back by sending you my leaflet, Trimmers and Slimmer*. It contains a set of co-ordinated spot reducing exercises—easy to do, quick to get results.
