When she took the coat out to wear . there were yellow spots all over the upper part. PLEASE someone tell us how to remove these spots without making the coat look even worse. — MRS. M. C. DEAR POLLY —My Pet Peeve is with beauticians who carelessly scatter hair down one's neck and onto clothes when they remove the cape that is put on during a hair cut. Just a bit of care could prevent a lot of useless itching and irritation.—MRS. B. E. Polly's note — Such hairs certainly do play havoc with knitted clothes and stick so tightly the clothes almost need a trip to the cleaners. DEAR POLLY — If your children's play space is limited and it is hard to assemble train tracks, play cities, etc., buy a large plywood board of a .size that will go under the child's bed. Attach four small wheels on the bottom at each corner so it can slide easily under the bed and then out again. Trains, etc., can be set up on this board and then it is easily pushed out of the way. — JANET .Write to Polly Cramer in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph.

"Are you one of those people who call me on the telephone or write and complain that my Trooper stopped you and handed you a ticket for no reason at all? You break my heart. You tell me you're a good citizen and a safe driver and a dumb cop gave you a ticket for going a little faster than the law allows. Well, I hope the next time you get caught breaking the speed limit he gives you another ticket and the traffic judge takes you license away.

He said he had known the girl for four years — it had started out as a brother-sister relationship and suddenly he found himelf looking at her with different eyes. You said, "Faint heart never won fair mind — or anything else," and advised him to take a deep breath and tell her that the friendship had become deeper and more meaningful and before he fell head over heels he should ask if she could possibly feel the same way about him. Then you added, "Don't be surprised if she says she already does."

THAT depends on his personality and emotional health. Ordinarily, a person ought to be able to bounce back pretty fast from whatever or whoever caused him to be flustered. Sometimes, though, if a person unconsciously despises what he is doing, he may be unconsciously waiting for the least excuse to give it up. If he hates a thing strongly enough, he may welcome getting flustered, never to resume what he was doing when he became flustered. Do school parents resent discipline'.'

Lawrence E. Lamb DEAR DR. LAMB - Would you explain to me what glaucoma is? What is borderline glaucoma and 'wiial should one do about it? DEAR READER — Glaucoma is the bui'dup of pressure inside the eye. The pressure buildup begins at tho, front of the eye first. Take a look at your eye and its black pupil. The outer covering of the. eye in front of the black pupil is a clear membrane called the conva. This clear membrane is the same layer of tissue as the white of your eye, except 'lie tissue specializes here to bt light in. Between this clear, tough outer shell and the attachment of the lens of the eye which is behind the dark pupil is a double r >m- partment chamber. There is a little gland inside the front of the eye that secretes fuid all the time that fills these two chambers. As the flu'd pressure bulids up, it leaks off through a tiny canal or duct. When the production of fluid is in balance with the runoff through the canal the pressure is maintained at a normal level. If, for some reason, the drainage canal is blocked or there is too much fluid produced the pressure builds up and is transmitted to the big chamber of the eye behind the lens, which :s filled with a gelatineouslike material. The buildup of press 1 ;!'* inside the eyeball presses on the receptors for vision and if the pressure gets great, enough it can destroy the^o and cause a person to develop blindness. The way glaucoma is diagnosed literally is by measuring the pressure inside the eyeball. This done by a little gadget is pressed down on the eyeball to measure its firmness. You can think of this as a modified pressure gauge that the garage mechanic uses to test the pressure in the tires of the automobile. When glaucoma is pretty well-established, the pressure will be fairly high and a great deal higher than that found within the so-called norrral range. There are some individuals who have a little elevation beyond what s considered normal, but yet not as high as that seen in a full-blown case of glaucoma. These are the borderlh o cases. There isn't much you can do about glaucoma, except In 1 sure to give yourself an opportunity to be diogno.-eJ early. Whenever the pressure becomes definitely elevated and your doctor is satisfied that you have glaucoma, it v time to start getting trwii- ment. Undue delay can contribute to early blindness. Doctors can do a lot to treat early cases of glaucoma ,t they, have a chance to soe them soon enough. This problem usually doesn't occur until after age 40. because it is much mere common after that age it is a good idea for everyone to have an eye examination at least once a year and pirt of the examination sh.nild include a measurement of the pressure in the eyes.

It is suited to every sort of costume in overy kind of weather. Big fur collar and high winds, for instance! Leather, suede, fur, felt, knits, silky prints and velvet ... all lend themselves to this approach to millinery. Shapes and colors cue flattery. Hatfuls! For wear with pantsuits, town suits, day dresses, blazers and coats there is an array of snapbrims, sailors and clothes and off-face brims. These are immensely becoming. The brim is worn on a slant and thus forms the famous beautifier, the diagonal line. Colors have a high brilliance, the better to combine plaids, patterns and earthy shades of clothing. The better to light up the face and eyes. Look for flaming reds, citrus oranges, tawny gold. In addition, bright plaids themselves form facings and trimmings, matching shoulder bags and scarves. In the late day, hats move toward glamour. A black velvet goque. one red rose falling over the cheek, tops a black crepe cocktail dress. A w r hite milk turban, draped to snug the head, poses above Fashion tips With knee dresses for day and short cocktail dresses for evening, delicate shoes, classic pumps, T-straps and slin-j; backs, will replace the clunkier platform shoes. Transparent leg-make-up and body bronziers are particularly helpful during the summer. They cover close-to- the surface veins and even out tans. a deep violet theatre coat. It is said that fashion is a lady again, a saying that parphrases "Luck is a lady tonight." Let's combine the thoughts — a lady with a i'ashiony hat is a lucky lady.
