If you're a teen-ager and you're scared of the dark and reluctant to admit it because you think It's juvenile, here's a fact that will brighten your life: A lot of other teen-agers are soared of the dark, toe. In fact, you can assume that yoti are not alond In any of your secret fear*. We recently asked 078 young people in many parts of the United States if they nave any secret fears. Although 59 per cent denied it, and 6 per cent didn't answer the question, 35 per cent admitted they do. We imagine that many of those who denied it would, if they spoke their inner thoughts, change their minds. For fear begins in infancy and lasts through life. As the late Hugh Walpole, a British novelist, once wrote: "We are so largely 4te playthings of Fate in our fears. To one, fear of the dark, to another, of physical pain, to a third, of public ridicule, to a fourth of poverty. to « fifth of !ort»nntw-ter nil ot Ul ottt ISirtFWlW 2.Hour Service at Our Plant 1-Day Delivery Service On Request CLEANERS 2501 State St. Dial HO 2-1911 AlW tlMte pole attributed to otter peo. pie, are your tears. WhM'stomT Hen are some of the fear* of some of your contemporaries: "1 fear death, childbirth, humiliation," says Ann Rogers, 18, of Lawrenceburg, Ind. Gar> Carter, IT, of Alow, Ore., fears that "loved ones close to me will die." Gert Goodwin, 15, of State College, Pa., has a common fear, but the courage to admit it—a fear of being alone in the dark. "Speaking In front of people," Is the fear that bedevils 17-year-old Prduence Perkins of Eugene, Ore. Karen Edens, 18, of Waterloo, Iowa, has a secret tear of world destruction; Elaine Simel, 16, of Brooklyn, N.Y., a fear of being an old maid; Jerry Lleberman, 17, of Newark, N. J., "that I won't be accepted In college." In all probability, you can find your own secret fear In that list. You might also wish to compare your answer with those we received to these questions : Is your fear justified? Of the 35 per cent who acknowledged that they have secret fears, 23 per cent feel they are justified. Are you trying to overcome Fear* it? Twenty-six per cent say they are. Is there anyone you confide It? Twenty-three per cent aay there is. Most Not Justified Some fears are easy to justl* fy, others are not, and others are not justifiable at all. The girl with a fear of being an old maid, sees justification for her fear in the fact that "there are more women than men." She has statistics to back her up. But this isn't tru« of most our fears. And many of you will agree with Sh<*r)a Brown, 17, of Eugene, 0»o., who says: "There are no sound reasons behind my fears, but they persist nonetheless." Young people who are trying to overcome their fears have some pretty sound ways of attacking them. Sherla Brown, for example, says she does so "by talking common sense to myself and listening to the counseling of my mother." And Karen Edens, the Waterloo girl with a fear of world destruction, is working on her fear "by strengthening my religious faith and my faith In human nature." When it comes to confiding fears to someone, most of your fellow teen-agers choose their mother. Others talk it out with a good friend or their "steady." And so you see, other teenagers also have fears. Perhaps that knowledge will help 'repared 1 wing Hour By tiU&ft BROOM (WfllMi for Having the right tools and materials at your fingertips adds immeasurably to the pleasure of sewing, and prevents th* "I'll put It off until tdrrtorrow" altitude from forming. So, when you sew, have at hands Good, sliarp, cutting shears. Sharp-pointed snipping solo* SOl'S. An orange stick to push out corners and to open seams. % A tracing wheel with sharp points. A box of dressmaker pins. An assortment of colored tailor's chalk. Good quality sewing needles size 7 to 8. Many buy the long-eyed needles as they are easier to thread. An accurate tape measure that begins with 1-inch mark- Ing at each end, and a 6-inch ruler to use in measuring .vidths of seams, hems, stitch- Ing lines. A well-padded ironing board, a good steam iron, a press cloth. Of course, zippers, thread- tapes, braids, rick-rack—any of the essentials that you will use in trimming or finishing. Have several bobbins for your machine so that you can wind a full one for each new color you use. If there is any attachment or adjustment on your sewing machine that you don't understand, go to your sewing you place yours In the proper perspective, perhaps even Uck it. Good luck.

Read your pattern Instruction sheet. If users of pattern* knew how much thought and know-how go into making each pattern, they would read and follow the instructions given. Often a pattern has extra pieces such as two kinds of collars or sleeve finishes, maybe a straight and a full skirt, in the same envelope. When you decide which style you will make, separate the pattern pieces, returning the extra pieces to the envelope so that they will not be in your way. Then, smooth out the pattern pieces, pressing them with a coo] iron if necessary. Straighten the fabric by tearing or drawing a crosswise thread and cutting on the thread line. Stretch the fabric diagonally until the crosswise edges come together evenly; pin th«se edges together. Lay the fabric out on a table, floor or bed, so that you can place all the pattern pieces on the correct grain and pin each squarely before you start to cut. Use cutting shears. Cut long swathes, so you will have true, even edges. Use your scissors for cutting the pattern notches. Remove the pattern, fold It and return to the envelope — but keep the pattern instruction sheet near for reference. Place the cut-out garment on a table, put In the necessary darts. Pin or needle- baste the seams. East a seam- line if it seems longer than another — they were made to go together. When the garment is basted, begin stitching. If you are inexperienced In stitching straight, lay a piece of ruled tablet paper on the seam line and stitch along this. Straight seams are essential to a good- looking garment. Remember to press each seam before it joins another. Cooking C.ne* Allow a baked pastry shell to cool thoroughly before add| ing a filling. Pancake batter should not be so thick that it needs to be spread after it is dropped on the griddle. You can vary a standard two-egg cake by folding half a cup of shredded coconut into the batter. If you've cored a head of iceberg lettuce and have used part of It. use the rest of fhe lettuce the next day. SUPERIOR CARPET CO. IM HAW tT« UFfft UTM - HO 14141 «! liimim.
