However, th«te are times whin 1 receive additional requests on oiw question, that 1 totl H necessary to repeat. • • • * . Q. Several months ago you gave directions tor making a taitor'i tarn or Cushion. Several of my friends and t want this very badly but we alt forgot to cut It out. We can't find a cushion in any of the stores In our town. Oould you possibly repeat it with the diagram? MRS. J/B. A. Cut two pieces of firm muslin or sheeting, following the measurements In the illustration. Stitch the pieces together around the edge and leave a 4-inch opening at the top. .Turn it inside out and stuff it firmly with clean sand or dry sawdust. Then, slip- stitch opening closed. If your ham becomes limp after using it a while, pack in more filling. » * • * Q. t haven't been sewing long and frankly don't -know all of the intricacies of a sewing machine. So often I'm told to make* the pressure lighter or heavier for certain fabrics. Where on the-machine do you do this and how is it done? MISS T. B. A. The pressure is adjusted by turning the thumb screw. It is located at the top of the presser bar. It is & large screw that is not as far into the machine as the other screws. To regulate, turn screw so it comes up out of the machine if you want the pressure to be lighter.* To make pressure heavier, turu screw so that it winds back into the machine. **•».« Q. I have several patterns I intend to sew in summer cottons, but none of them has one for a matching stole. Please tell me the average length and width of a stole and the best fabric for lining. Also, any hints on how to make it will be appreciated. MISS R. S. A. The straight stole is the simplest type to make and requires., no pattern. If your stole is -to* be of cotton, then the lining should be of the same fabric or a contrasting color in cotton. Cut two pieces 84 Inches (244 yds.) and 18 inches wide. Place right sides together and stitch around all four sides H inch from the edge, leaving an opening on one long side to turn. Turn the right side, press and slip- stitch opening closed. Your stole is made! * * * * Q. There Is a group of us that sews and we ail have one problem in common. How can you select thread so that it matches the fabric? It invariably looks lighter when stitched, whereas it seems to match perfectly when on the spool.— MRS. L. T. A. This is a common problem. Don't buy your thread to match fabric perfectly, but select a color that looks one shade darker man your fabric. When you unwind the thread, the single strand will blend perfectly.

Jf OftAft Afffl tAffOttlMi I'm a fir!, 39, and a secretary with « laife oil firm, I keep a cash box out of which 1 pay portage due and C.O.D.'t.

The diary is locked and I have the only key. I also lock the desk drawer. Yesterday, my boss called me in and asked if I took money from the cash box on week ends. I was' shocked and accused him of breaking into my desk drawer and reading my diary. He denied everything. How did he know if he didn't read my diary? Since I'm responsible for the lousy cash box don't I have the right to borrow money from it if I want to? I was not fired but I would quit if I didn't have to support three people. How about it? TULSA DEAR TULSA: You have no right to borrow company money for any reason whatever — for a weekend, a day, or a minute. If you were hit by a truck Friday night the shortage would be all yours. You'd be labeled a thief—and the label fit?. Most embezzlers-admit after they % are caught that they started out "borrowing" just as you are doing now. If you want to play the horses and bet on the fights, "borrow" from your own savings account. The boss didn't need to read your diary.

In France husbands and wives have nothing besides love to talk about, says a Frenchman on a recent visit to this country. "And when you talk only about love," he added with finality, "that's a perfect marriage." It may be a perfect marriage for a Frenchman.. But having nothing but love to talk about to his lifetime marriage partner would drive an American husband not only out of his home but out of his mind as well. American 4 men sometimes pretend that they like their women beautiful but dumb, but it's only a pretense that doesn't fool anybody but an awfully dumb woman. For how can an American wife be dumb and do all the things her husband expects her to be able to do? Understand his business well enough, at least, not to put her foot in her month when she entertains his business associates, accompanies him to conventions, or has to pass the inspection of the higher-ups and their wives if her husband is a corporation man? Hold down a job to help out when her husband is getting a start or at any time during the marriage when the going gets rough? Learn enough about his leisure time interests to be able to be a companion to him — whether he is interested in art, hunting, fishing, golf or whatever? Run a home, bring up children and create a pleasant social life for the family? Do her share of community work? Keep up with her husband intellectually so that no matter how successfully he becomes he need never be ashamed of her? Nope, the American husband doesn't want a wife who can talk about nothing but love. After all, he's the fellow who invented the no-nonsense answer to woman's eternal question. "Do you still love me?" ... "I MARRIED VOU, DIDN'T DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently I got a girl in trouble if you know what I mean. In the panic of not having a steady job I joined the Armed Forces. I was supposed to ship out right away but the plans were changed. 1 called the girl to tell her I was'nt leaving right away but her folks wouldn't let me talk to her. They somehow got the idea that just because I joined the Armed Forces, I was trying to run out on her. What 1 Wanted to talk to her about was getting some money to her and the baby. Yesterday, when I finally got her on the phone, she said she never wanted to see nne ,or hear from me again. Her folks have turned her against me and I need your help. M. DEAR L. M.S Well, what do you know—the first thing you did when you learned your girl was in trouble was join the Armed Forces. Then something went wrong and you didn't ship right out after all.

A Little Salt Can Badly Poison A Healthy Infant By SCIENCE SERVICE WASHINGTON - Less than a tablespoon of salt can severely poison a healthy Infant. Dr. Laurence Finberg of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md., reported at th» American Academy of Pediatrics meeting here. Severe brain damage or even death may result, Dr. Finberg said, pointing out that the diagnosis may be overlooked. The symptoms may be confusing to the pediatrician, especially if he does not know that the child swallowed an excessive amount of salt. The pediatrician said it was not generally known that so small an amount can poison a baby. Although this is not a common occurrence, he presented information about two cases, one of which resulted In permanent brain injury, Cooking Cue* When you are making up a gelatin dish, make sure that the gelatin is completely dissolved.
