SEAMS TO ME Answers Qiven To Questions By PATRICIA SCOTt There are some things we must buy ready-made, because the necessary materials are not available for retail trade. * * * Q. Please give instructions on how to make dress shields to match dresses, as one can buy only black or white shields. — Mrs. H. H. W. A. Giving instructions on how to make shields would be easy, hut what would you do for fabric? Shields arc made of two fabrics, one is a cotton that goes next to the skin and the other is a waterproof material. The waterproof part is. of course, vital and you cannot buy this fabric. Q. I'd like to make several toaster covers to match my kitchen curtains. Could you help me? Thank you. Mrs. T. B. B. A. You'll need »i of a yard of fabric: 1'i yards of corded piping: 1U yards of jumbo rickrack: ]'< yards of baby rickrack. Cut the toaster cover as shown in the diagram: Two side pieces 8x12 inches and one top piece 6x2fi'i inches. Round off top corners of the two 8x12 inch pieces as shown. Stitch piping to the right side of these side sections, stitching around the two short sides and one long side. With right sides together, seam the long strip to the side sections over the piping stitching line. Turn cover right side out and press. Turn lower edge under Vi inch and press. Add baby rickrack j trim over this turned edge and top stitch. Add jumbo rickrack from wrong side, so that only one edge of points show. Q. Is it possible to shorten a wool knit skirt at home? How can it be cut so it won't ravel? — Mrs, G. S. A. Measure your skirt length and decide how wide you wish the finished hem to be. If, let's say, you wish to cut off 2 inches, measure up 2'«! inches C/4 inch above where you wish to cut) and machine stitch all around the hem at this point. This will stay stitch your skirt so the knitted stitches won't unravel when you cut it.

Since the king of clubs is favorably located a. casual analysis would make it appear that the slam is ironclad. However, • the line of play -which South actually adopted was de"signed to achieve success even if the club finesse failed. Since there can be no quarrel vitb a plan of campaign which is calculated to increase the prospects for success, we must dejve further into the matter in order to determine where declarer fell from glory. West's opening lead against the six spade contract was the king of diamonds. When this Jield the trick, he continued Vith the queen which South ruffed. Rather than hinge everything on the club finesse, declarer endeavored to find a way to improve his chances. Presently, he saw that if he could arrange to ruff three diamonds in his hand and use the dummy's spades to draw trumps, then he could take six spades, five hearts and one club. In other words, by revers-' ing the dummy, he could develop an extra trump trick. This plan required only a gormal three-two trump break. South accordingly led the eight .of spades over to the dummy's nine at trick three and ruffed another diamond. He planned to ree'nter dummy with another spade, ruff out the last diamond, cross over to the jack of hearts and cash the king of spades on -which he could discard his queen of clubs. Now his hand would be high. However, when the second round of trumps was led to the dummy, East showed out and the hand collapsed. Declarer's analysis was unimpeachable, but his technique was faulty. Had he timed his plays properly he could have tested both approaches without committing himself irrevocably to either one. After ruffing the diamond continuation, South should play two rounds of trumps winding up in dummy. If both hands follow, then he can proceed with the dummy reversal. A second diamond is now ruffed and dummy retains two entries'in hearts so that South can trump the last diamond and still get over to the North, hand to draw the last spade. When East shows out on t h a second spade, however, South has time to abandon this plan and fall back on the club finesse which works. Miss LeBleu Honored at Bridal Fete MOSS BLUFF (Spl.) - Miss!

By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatnrei Writer What drives young peope to vandalism? Pros and cons of that question were discussed recently by a group of teen-agers who had wantonly destroyed property hi a private community beach area where their own families swim and picnic. Bitterness seeems to be the only answer to their indiscretions by their own evaluation in retrospect "I guest you might say we were all mad at something," explains one contrite 17-year-old. "But why it led us to destructiveness is a mystery. Maybe in some ways it was better that our own families were involved. Strangers would have been harsher with us." The boys are on probation released to their parents for discipline. | All were shamed by the deedi and were punished in ways that ! hurt: no liberties, no privileges,; no car use, no allowance, "noi nothing," as one boy put it. And they agreed their vengeance would be a hard memory \ to erase in their community. : One boy traces the beginning this way: "Weeks ago small problems with our families put us all in a bad mood. For one thing we wanted to have a party at the community grounds one evening, and they were agin' it, so we called it off. But it lurked around our skulls, gnawing at us, and every once in a while, we'd bemoan the fun we could have had." | Then various crises developed in each boy's life. j Joe's girl went to Europe for al long vacation; Jeff's father lost money in the stock market and had to renege on his promise of a jalopy; Jimmy was stuck baby-i sitting for a visiting married sister in an emergency. i Art \vas blamed for dropping his father's outboard motor; Fred-j dy couldn't resist food and wasj less popular than ever with the girls because he was so rotund in a bathing suit. Thcy don't understand what led; them to the beach area on that! particular nighl, realizing their; parents would be furious. Or who instigated the trouble. Art explains: "When \ve got there someone mentioned that we'd get pulverized if \ve were caught. Someone else said 'Here's what I think of ' this stupid park.' tossing the trash basket to someone else. Someone 1 said, 'I agree,' picking up a bench and throwing it. ! Someone raised a picnic table : and pushed it down to the water. We all jumped on the table and sat for awhile. Then someo n e i raced up the beach and started dragging another table down to ! the water. Then we took other I stuff and started throwing it in j the water." i "Jimmy says: "I can't even | understand how I slept so svcll that ftigjit. Somehow when I ir* home ft was afl behind me. "1 couldn't even associate my self with (he episode when the police located me. I couldn't remember how it happened. It did- flot seem to have happened to us." A parent of one boy says: "The horror is there was nothing more than anger involved. The boys don't drink beer or anything tiice that They don't even smoke. They are good scholars. How could they have gotten in such a mess?" One of the boys may have hit the nail on the head when he said "I guess it was the first time my parents had ever really refused me such a little thing."
