A40 AHoti Evening Telegraph Monday, Sept. 11, 1072 Ann Landers says... A very old wine press, an 1880 lounge, a quaint barrel cask wheel barrel from early days and a George Washington painting in an antique^ frame are among the items which are being collected for the flea market planned in connection with Historic Alton days next month. Mrs. V. M. Cook is heading plans for the flea market, and will arrange for delivery on request. Mrs. Cook, who "lives at 518 Beacon St., told the Telegraph that her committee is seeking donations of art objects, furniture, china and interesting items, which need not necessarily be antique. The flea market, sponsored by the Alton-Godfrey Welcome Wagon, will be given as a bene fit for the Alton Area Historical Society: the Alton Area Landmarks Association, Inc.: and the Alton Museum of History and Art. The market will be set up in the Taphorn Building in Alton, and guests will use the 205 E. Broadway entrance. The sale will open on Oct. 5 with hours from fi until !):;!() p.m. The benefit sale will continue on Friday and Satin-clay, Oct. 6 and 7 with hours from 9 a.m. until <) p.m.: and will open on Sunday, Oct. 8, from noon until 8:30 p.m. Donations are being accepted through this month, and through the sale dates.

DEAR ANN: I must comment on the letter from the reader who wrote to say that an acquaintance was using an ancestral crest very similar to theirs and she was sure ihe woman had "cope:!" it. Isn't it amazing what some people view as a problem? I! must be wonderful to have so little to worry about! One of the great thincis about the United States i.s that, with few exceptions, its people have rejcrtccl status l-y inheritance in favor :if status by achievement. Each person must stand or fall on I lie strength of what Iv is able 1o make of himself. Who cares about nob)' 1 ancestors if nobility n[ character has not been passed alon-.r through parent-child relationships? And what does it matter if one's amv^'fl's were bastards so long -is !,',<• person himself has risen above bastardly conduct" Some people with siminr family crests deserve each other. The fact that the w o in a n would complain suggests that she i.s learning heavily on her dead relatives for status. —NEW MEXICO DEAR NEW: The mental picture of a person leaning on dead relatives is somewhat ludicrous, but it puts the whole thing in proper perspective. Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN: I've got a little advice for (hat woman who wonders if she should insist that her husband destroy his box filled with pictures of former girl friends. Don't do it. dear. Put the box away, out. of sight. so you won't run into it very time you clean. Forget about the bloomin' thing and one clay you'll be glad you did. Tom and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary last week and I decided the time had come to sit down and go through the box of pictures. Well, Ann, we laughed so hard tears rolled down our cheeks. The outfits, the hairdos, the poses — it was be f .ter than an old movie. My husband and I started to reminisce. It was ama/n 1 !; bow many of the girls who were once cute and popular arc now oul-of-shape ancl no longer attractive. The hotshot of yesteryear selected as •'most likely to succeed" \v;,s lost in the shuffle and never heard from again. Tell your readers that throwing out pictures can be a big mis'.ake. Advise them to put away those mementoes and one day they'll be glad they did. -• STILL LAUGHING Free Under Roof Parkins BENTON & Ln Perlc HAIR FASHION Phono: 465-20l> or 462-88>!a Illini First Federal Building; State and Wall Street PAMPER YOUR SWEET TOOTH WITH avrakos Candies, .. they sa\\ the frieetat things Complete Assortment Available at THE PRESCRIPTION SHOP 909 Brown Street J.

Should we speak to the woman, to the minister, or to the minister's wife? We want to proceed in a way that will be best for everybody. We feel certain that if the minister or his wife were aware of the gossip he would behave differently. Please advise. — OBSERVERS Dear SHU: I wish I'd thought of this angle. Thanks for improving on my advice. DIvVK A.\\: The pastor of our church has been visiting a widow who lives near me, almost daily since he' 1 husband died. At first we thought it was very i.on- siderate of him to take such a personal interest in her, but it's been three years now and she's had ploniy of time to learn how lo handle her grief alone.

Cooking rues A mashed sweet potato casserole, for a company dinner, benefits from adding sugar, butter, rum and grated lemon or orange rind to the potatoes. Alton Little Theater, with a successful history of 40 year', in the community, will on»n the coming season in its expanded theater building on Oct. 13, and will present four productions this year in place of its usual three. Because its active membership is at an all time Ivgh and its yearly subscription l : sl continues to grow, the gro-p has been encouraged to broaden its program. With Ilia .season expanded to four plays, the board hopes :o offer a greater variety of shows to its audiences as well as provide more oppoitunitics for participation by organization members. Season tickets arc now on sale at $7.50 each, which includes one ticket to each of the productions. Singly door admission will be $2.50. Single admission tickets for ihe dinner show performance will be $7M. Dinner show season tickets are $25. Patron tickets are being offered once again this ye-.r for those who would like to offer extra support to the organization. Patron season tickets arc $15, and pat-on dinner show season tickets are $35. The amount above the regular price is ax deductible, and a list of patrons will be presented 10 those who attended the shows. PLAYS SELECTED The season will open on Oct. 13 with a production of "Laura" by Vera Caspray and George Sklar. A popular movie several years ago, "Laura" is a suspenseful mystery that tells of 'he attempt on the life of a beautiful young woman. The intricate plot is all the more fascinating because although the list of suspects is very small, the mystery renriiiui baffling until the few suspenseful moments. The second offering of the season will be a revival of the long-time favorite, "The Man Who Came to Dinner", opening Jan. 19. This is one of Kaufman and Hart's most popular comedies and one that keeps the audience- laughing throughout. It is the s t o ry of entrepreneur Sheridan Whiteside who, having dined at the home t/f the Stanleys, slips on their door steps, breaking his hip. A tumultous six weeks of confinement follows. The piay has a large cast and was produced several years ag • by the Alton group. "The Wooden Dish," a p'ay by Edmund Morris, will provide a change of pace in the season's offerings. One critic referred to it as, "the closest thing to a now Finest In • DRY CLEANERS • For 25 Years TEMPLE CLEANERS classical tragedy that I have seen in twenty years of dramatic criticism." The play tells of the isolation of an older man living with his son and daughler-in-law. It is the touching and impressive play Ihat provided the basis for t!ie recent movie, "Kqt:h" sliirrinj,' Walter Mathau. ''"The Wooden Dish" will open on March 2. The season's final .iffering will be a light and slightly scandalous comedy called "Dear Charles". Opening on May II. this play tells Iho story of a happy-go-lucky mot her who is pressed to produce at long last the father of her now-grown children. This requires tact ami plaiinin.i,' and is, of course.;, confused by the of more than one man. Each of Hie productions will be given eight performance.;. As has been the policy for several years, one performance will be reserved Tor high school students only. The closing performance of each play will be on Sunday evening and will be preceded by a dinner served in the foyer. Free coffee will be offered during intermission each night.
