ESP LECTURE The speaker for the afternoon session will be F. J. Kennelly, member of the American Society for Psychical Research and the owner of a large library on psychic phenomena and allied subjects. In 1956 he began presenting his own demonstration of mindreading and mentalism, entitled, "Positive Thought C o n t r o 1 . ' ' which proved successful through 1963. Later he abandoned the demonstration rather than admit to having psychic- powers; but has continued to press his studies and attend lectures on ESP. At all speaking engagements, he has informed his audience that the subject matter is not psychic in origin. Mr. Kennclly is :ilso a long lime member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and he feels that his background in this regard places him in position to detect fraud and deception, which is widely prevalent in the study and practice of ESP.

Mr. William Fishback, State director of Food Stamp Program of the 'Illinois Department of Public Aid. 18 E. Washington St., Springfield, 111. 62762. Q. I have heard that it's possible to can peaches, green beans, etc. in the oven. At what temperature and for how teng? Mrs. D. R. Wood River. A. Oven canning is dangerous. Jars may explode. The temperature of the food in jars during oven processing does not get high enough to insure destruction of spoilage bacteria in vegetables. (Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables, p. 29). The Basic Cook book (p. 607) reports that canning in an oven results in loss of liquid from jars and may cause a brownish discoloration in the fruit. None of the other cookbooks would even discuss oven canning. If any of you have had success with oven canning, let me know. Q. Are there any bicycle clubs in the Alton area? G.W.

You SUddently discover the poundage when you purchase a new skirt or pants. Unlike those in old summer clothes, new waistlines are un- stretched. Weight can no longer slide down and be hidden in a skirt, but actually is squeezed up by the snug fit. What's to do? These spot exercises, that's what: 1. On floor, lie on back with knees bent »o that feet rest flat. Press hands to upper thighs, finders pointing upward. Now slide hands toward knees and simultaneously lift head and shoulders. Return to starting position, gently rolling back along floor. Repeat 10 times. Easy does it! '1. Back down on floor with leas straight and arms at sides. Holding shoulders to flrwr, raise head and jackknife legs so that knees come up to waist level. Next try to touch knees to nose. After 3 tries, gradually return to stretched-out position. Repeat 10 times. Extra: If the diaphragm really hampers your style, spoils the line of your clothes, wear a longline bra until the exercises have time to take effect. HIP REDUCING ROUTINES You can diet until you become feather-light and still be hip-heavy. Reduction in the hipline is assured only by exercise. For a set of quick and effective ones, send for my leaflet, HIP REDUCING ROUTINES. Write Mary Sue Miller in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope and ten cents in coin.

(AP Wirephoto) Small sleeves in half -size dresses cause pet peeves DEAR POLLY — My Pet Peeve is with the manufacturers of women's half-size clothes who do not put larger sleeves in their dresses and blouses. The sleeves are often so small that they have to be taken out and pieced. — MRS. T.G.H. DEAR READERS - This must be a Peeve common to many as we have had quite a few letters with the same complaint. — POLLY Today's Problem DEAR POLLY — We have an old floor lamp that we need to use in our living room. This lamp is sturdy and manufacturers do not seem to make them like it any more. As the lamp is old the shade is in tatters. I hope someone can tell me how to cover it again so it will be presentable. I have tried to buy a new one everywhere, but even the Good Will and Salvation Army stores do not have them in the required size. I do need some ideas for renovating my old one. — JACKIE DEAR POLLY - Evelyn wrote about her problem with getting glue to hold her wood chairs together. My husband and I have done a lot of such work and have learned the following: Sand all wood joints to remove dirt, old glue and old finish. Use resin epoxy glue and mix according to directions. After applying glue to both parts of the joint, tie the chair to hold them together firmly and let dry for at least 24 hours. Be sure to assemble chairs properly. Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWELL Are kids under too much pressure? YES; and it is surprising how well the children do turn out despite the pressure they catch from all sides: Their parents are after them constantly; their teachers are drilling lessons into them; they are urged to conform and yet be individualistic. The children are learning to get along with their contemporaries while at the same time they ere trying to please adults. Those carefree days of childhood . . . ? Who's kidding who? Do top salesmen need a 'gift of gab' NOT necessarily, but let's face it, it does help even the best salesmen if they are skillful talkers. Everyone likes to be charmed by the person with a "silver tongue" and that means a salesman with a gift of gab can get his foot in the door. There is always that drop to reality, though; and if the salesman is not sincere about the product he's selling his ability to charm swiftly becomes his most irritating characteristic. Will love boost low morale SURE. A man is in love; he is not thinking of himself, he wants to please the woman he loves. With the focus off himself, he now doesn't feel that his morale is so low that it needs to be uplifted. It is another matter, if a depressed person merely thinks he is in love. He is looking for someone to boost his spirits. When he fails in his quest, he blames love; he blames the woman he mistakenly believes he loves; and he blames himself. k O 1W2 Klnj; Features Syndicate, Inc.) Once dried they probably will never come loose again — MARIE DEAR POLLY — I sympathize with Evelyn, who has the loose chair joints, Glue penetrates the grain of the wood and, unless the old glue is completely removed down to a clean surface, you know what happens. The dowel must be scraped and sanded and the hole cleaned out with a rotary file or sanding drum. If the hole is too big for the dowel, some shims are called for. Tear narrow strips of muslin %-inch wide and twice the length of the dowel plus the diameter of the hole. Cross two of these in the center and glue them to the dowel. Add more glue to the outside of the strips and drive into the hole or prepare both ends of the rung and squeeze in with a furniture clamp. If one layer of muslin is not enough use another, as the joint must be tight. I use that popular new milky white glue that is for ALL things. — SAM, the old timer. DEAR READERS -- Do remember that glue must be applied thinly as thick glue tends to get britte. If you do not have furniture clamps to bold the mended parts together, a long piece torn from an old sheet (rope might cut into the wood) wrapped around and round and then a strip of wood slipped In to make a tourniquet will bold it tightly. Put stick behind rung while drying. — POLLY You will receive a dollar if Polly uses your favorite homemaking idea, Pet Peeve, Polly's Problem or solution to a problem.

League to give husband-wife buffet supper The Alton Community Sen-ice League is taking reservations from its members for the annual husband- wife buffet supper, to be given at Lockhavea Country Club Saturday. Mrs. Paul M. Fischer and Mrs. Elvis Lamm III are accepting reservations for tito 6 p.m. event. BBB will check validity of mail order propositions DEAR ANN: You .do a lot of good in the world. Please do a little more by telling your readers to beware the con-artists who will take their last quarter. The most outrageous schemes pull in millions of dollars. You wonder how people can be so gullible. A friend of mine worked for three years to save enough money to enroll in a correspondence college. When he didn't get an answer from the school, he did some investigating and discovered that the college campus was a post-office box in New Jersey. Fraudulent mail-order schools prey on the ignorant and the poor. The promise, "We can teach you to speak perfect English through the mails," rakes in fantastic sums. The hopefuls send in their checks and some of them receive nothing but an envelope of reading material with phony forms that are so vague the poor sucker gives up trying to figure out what to do with them. By that time, he is too ashamed to ask anybody because he knows he's been had. Please print my letter and warn your readers to be careful. — SYMPATHETIC DEAR SYM: How sad that so many people believe they can get rich, thin and smart through the mails. The diploma mills in this country rake in millions of dollars and their bad name rubs off on the ethical correspondence schools which perform a genuine service. Anyone who wants to. check the validity of a mail order proposition should call the Better Business Bureau. DEAR ANN: Recently A divorcee who signed herself "Huntington Station" wrote to you and described her neighbors. They all had unsatisfactory marriages and every one of their husbands had propositioned her. "H. S." started out "Bernice wears curlers 24 hours a day, Is a chronic complainer and gets stoned every afternoon on beer. By the lime her husband comes home she is staggering around the kitchen — Wind." I speak as a 47-year-old woman, married 25 years in suburbia — garden apartments, the whole bit. I know what goes on with wives everywhere because I'm the type people confide in and 1 hear plenty. I could put a name on every gal described in "H.S.'s" letter. Here's the rest of the story — from the wife's side. "Bernice" wea*rs curlers and drinks beer all afternoon because her husband is a chaser who loves to come home and brag about his conquests. He gets his jollies- from letting her know every time he scores with a new broad — which Is like once a week. "Marge" starts cleaning the house at midnight when her husband gets ready for bed because he is a lousy lover and takes a bath once a month — whether he needs it or not. "Emily," who weighs 280 pounds and drops food on her chins (her bosom looks like a snack tray), making up for the love she doesn't get from Henry — who is impotent. (At home, anyway.) "*" "Lenore," who""says wives are fools to allow their husbands to use them as substitute call girls and considers sex degrading unless a woman is in the mood ( her moods come twice a year), is married to a man who needs dirty pictures, porno films, filthy language and a fifth of Scotch to get turned on. So the eternal question is unresolved. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? — RETCHING IN ROCHESTER DEAR ROCH: It depends on who you ask — the hen or the rooster.
