SATtm&AY, JUNE 29,1968 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH tn The Future Decorators May Be Robots By VIVIAN BROWN NEW YORK <AP) - The eomputisp'may soon invade toe field of Interior decorating. Etectrofilcs machines have been used to forecast the buying habits of housewives, but decorating a home has always been done on a personal basis. Homemakets may welcome such an Idea-It may provide an answer to a husband's. . ."why, why, why. . .why do we have yellow, orange and pink daisies oii this slipcover. , ," "Well dear, it's probably b* cause I'm a gregarious avant- garde type and you are a lovable warm type who gets along beautifully with people. We're so intellectual and all that sort of thing the computer says, that we must absolutely use these warm colors...all together..." Interior designers frown on such a ready-made decorating plan because it lacks the human touch, necessary to organize the ideal home setting. But the machine hopes to pacify them too Ann Landers ted' Means Still Wed I won't DEAR ANN: I'm 26 years old —not beautiful, but I've been told I am interesting looking. My husband was no good so we decided to live apart, go into detail but 1 could .write a book about the skunk. At present I'm living with my mother who takes care of my 2 children while I work. I am In no hurry to get a divorce and . , . neither is my Ann Landers> husband. My problem is that I am trying to meet some nice men and having no luck. Almost every evening I go to a little .bar where there is dancing. Everything goes fine until the guy notices my Wedding ring. When I say I am separated they don't believe me. Do you think I should leave my ring at home? Please advise—HILDEGARDE DEAR IIILDE: Not only should you leave your ring at home but you should stay at home with your ring. "Separated" is still married. * * * * DEAR ANN: Several months ago our daughter (age 20) and her steady boy friend, who is a very nice chap and comes from a fine family, told us as follows: "We are sorry it had to happen like this but there's a baby on the way and we want to get married right away." If I told you we weren't shocked and disappointed I would be lying. But we decided to hold our heads high and do the best we could. Our daughter and the boy asked for a church wedding, wnite gown and all, but wanted only the immediate family present. We agreed. Now, several of our friends have mentioned they have heard rumors that our daughter is pregnant. I have been evasive but realize I must say something soon because the bride will be showing before long. Any suggestions as to how to explain the early arrival of our first grandchild?—T.N.T. DEAR T.: No bride who is "showing" should wear a white bridal gown and, so far as I know, they are not making bridal gowns in maternity styles —yet. The grandchild Won't be early. The kids got married late. Make no apologies. Your real friends will not bring up the subject. As for the others, tell them babies always come when they are ready—and some are ready sooner than others. Sheinucold on Bridge Keep Your Eye On Probability DEAR ANN: I'm in love for the very first time. Tim is 35. I am 29. Neither of us has ever been married. It's as if we've been waiting for one another all these years. Problem: When I was 18 I became involved with with a group of homosexuals. Many were older than I. Some Were highly respected professional people—creative and interesting. I ran with this crowd for two years but maintained my other friendships also. After a while I decided I didn't want to live in the shadows. I decided to give up my homosexual friends and go completely straight. I couldn't afford psychiatric help so I went to my minister. He gave me the strength and courage I needed to break away from my homo friends. It was not easy but I was determined to win the battle and I did. Question: Should I tell Tim? I feel he would still love me and it would not jeopardize our wedding plans. What do you say? —LUCKY AND THANKFUL DEAR LUCKY: Tell him. But don't be surprised if he already knows. Such information has a Way of getting around. I strongly recommend that you ask your physician for reading material on homosexuality. You (and thousands of others who have written to me) do not know* the difference between homosexuality and bi-se» uality. There's an enormous By ALFRED SHEINWOLD Unless you have X-ray eyes you can't tell at the beginning of a hand how the missing 26 cards are divided. When you have no better guide, however, you can use probability, to steer you to the .winning line of play. East took the ace of diamonds and returned the nine to South'? king. Now South'S contract depended on avoiding the loss of a heart trick. It was obviously unsound to try for the clubs since there weren't enough entries to dummy to develop and run the suit. South had to ruff out his hearts. South rejected the idea .of leading a trump to the ace and returning a heart for a finesse with the jack, If East had the queen of hearts safer plan would work. Instead, declarer cashed the top hearts and ruffed a hear! with the eight of spades. If the queen of hearts had fallen, South Would be home. Ruffs Diamond When the queen of hearts refused to drop, South ruffed diamond and led the jack of hearts. All would still be safe if West failed to follow suit since then South could ruff with dummy's nine of spades withoui fear of an overruff. As it happened, West pro duced the queen of hearts.

LOUIS AYE, mar EAST BROADWAY A New You by Emily JFiZfcens Beware of Beauty Bugaboos] Most girls try their best to look their best but total success is often elusive. Somehow nasty little beauty bugaboos creep in and work their mischief unseen, unheard and unsung! Unfortunately, it's the grooming and beauty flaws that you can't see but others can which act as deterrents to allover loveliness. Remedy the situation by using this check list as your all-seeing mirror. Posture Perfect: There's no doubt about it, your posture and stance can make or break the whole beautiful image. Stop and think for a moment of a desolate, unhappy individual- head down, shoulders slumped, obviously broken in spirit. Then switch your thoughts regally and see the beautiful confidence of the person who stands glamorously, graciously, gorgeously straight! Your carriage pro- jects your total image, so give good looks a head start by tending to this vital area. Now Hear This: Don't let your ears take a back seat to normal good grooming routines. Keep them as immaculate as your face, using cream plus cotton swab as a handy cleaner-upper, particularly important after shampooing, urgent after hair coloring or tinting. Every little crevice counts. 4 4 * 1075 V 975 O A94 +K1094 SOUTH 4 KQJ32 t?

The odds were only even that West had the ten of spades, but better than 2 to 1 that the five missing spades were divided 3-2. For this reason South ruffed the last heart with dummy's ace of spades.

A bit of mild scouring powder on a damp cloth is also very effective.

Green, and Mrs. Green, the organist, accompanied the bridegroom as vocalist. A reception in the church social rooms followed. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd H. Wilson of 408 E. Tenth St., and the bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bledsoe of Palmer. Mrs. Robert Conreaux Was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Mrs. James Creal Jr., Mrs. Ralph Ford and Miss Connie Brown. The Rev. Rodell Bledsoe was his brother's best man, and another brother, Norman Bledsoe, the bride's brother, Lonnle Wilson, and Andy Stiemer were groomsmen. John Rickman and Kenton Smith were ushers, and Debbie Rickman and Charles Sage Jr., were flower girl and ring bearer. The bride wore a Chantilly lace over taffeta gown with lace tiers forming the skirt, and a camelot train attached at the back shoulder line. Lace and petals held her veil, and she carried a Bible covered with orchids, stephanotis and white streamers. Her attendants Wore nile Down With Frowns: Crinkles, wWnkles and plain old frowns can frazzle even the most meticulous makeup. Make it a thrice-daily practice to stop whatever you're doing for a few minutes to discourage those lines. Lean on the table or your typewriter, rub the palms of your hands together to generate heat, relax your head in your hands and cup your warm palms over your eyes. Shut out all unpleasant thoughts—think of blue skies, soft clouds—you'll feel and look refreshed in minutes. Breath-Taking: Bad breath, the notorious despoiler of daintiness! Beat it with good dental hygiene: Proper brushing, dental floss used nightly, daily dedication to mouthwash, especially the chlorophyll type. Most helpful: An a.m. tongue cleansing from top to bottom with a clean girdle bone. Preventive medicine: Ample fresh fruit and vegetables in College Notes Miss Stephanie Walters, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Walters of 301 Maurice St., has been named to the dean's list with highest honors at Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa, where she is a senior.

Neck Knack: Tension makes you look tired; dispel it with this exercise which should be done frequently each day. Move your shoulders up and down vigorously trying to "touch" your ears; pull them way down, then back up and down several times. Tummy Tamer: If your tummy is less than trim, conscientiously hold it in as if you were wearing the tightest invisible girdle (accomplish this by contracting buttock muscles and tummy muscles simultaneously). Pretty soon you won't need a real girdle at all. Vanishing Veins: To camouflage those unsightly little spidery lines, cover them with leg makeup—stick form is handiest. It's best applied when your skin is still warm after a shower or bath. When you banish those insidious beauty bugaboos THE NEW YOU can sail forth with self-confidence to spare. * * * » JUST FOR YOU: Your voice counts, too.
