t , PAGtt ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Sewing Bea The Newest in Belts for Today By BEA ALLEN Telegraph Family Page Writer To finish off a dress, now that the Waistline is back in view, requires a belt of some kind. It can be high, low, or in between, wide or narrow, It can either buckle, tie, snap or hook, and it, can be made or purchased, but it ] seems that fashion requires that] it be there. If the seam-1 stress plans to make a belt to compliment her ] ensemble, she' will have quite a few ideas to choose from. Belt backing, buckles, hooks and eyes can be bought in the fabric store in various widths, with complete instructions as to how to assemble them. For an all in one ensemble, choose a belt of the same fabric as the dress, in which case extra fabric will be required. A length of backing, equal to the waist measurement plus six inches, and a length' of fabric, this length plus % of an inch and twice the width of the backing plus % inch, should cut on the selvage, if possible, but if not, cut a ^ inch wider and fold under to form a finished edge. College Notes • Mr. and Mrs. Robert M. Thompson of 2207 Marquette Ave., and' Mrs. Harry Allton, 102 Manor St., were among the parents attending Parents Weekend activities at Bedoit College, June 22-23. Miss Mary Thompson and Richard Allton are students at the school. Mrs. Pond, L. J.Lucker Married Mrs. Mildred Pond of St. Louis and Lawrence J. Lucker of 724 Linden Ave., were married at noon Saturday in St. Mary's Catholic Church, before the Rt. Rev. Msgr. James Suddes. Mrs. Pond's daughter, Mrs. Irma Schmitt, and Mr. Lucker's son, Robert Lucker, attended the couple, and a reception followed at the Linden avenue address where the couple will live. At one end of the belting cut a point to pass through the buckle. Make it either an arrow point, a slant point or a circular point. For the arrow point, fold the fabric in half lengthwise, right sides together, and stitch one end, trimming the seam to % inch. Turn to right side, opening strip to form a point, and smooth out carefully. Fit over point of backing and. fold long cut edge of fabric over length of belting. Fold opposite selvage edge over this, pin and slip stitch securely. To attach the belt buckle, choose one that is enough wider than the belt so it can slip through the buckle easily when both are covered. Buckle kits come with patterns for cutting the fabric and adhesive strips to attach to the buckle frame. Different styles of buckles also include prongs and eyes for belts, and direc- tons for these must be followed closely. After the desired buckle has been made, cut a slit or small eyelet in the center of the straight end of the belt for the prong, and about 1% inches from the end. Attach the prong to the buckle and slip through the slit. Catchstitsh the end to the wrong side of the belt and try on to determine the placement of eyes. Mark and make eyes according to directions on the package, allowing for an expanding or decreasing Waistline, and the belt is finished. Loops on the dress are necessary for any belts not worn at the natural waistline. They may be made of self-fabric or crocheted thread. A tie belt is usually a bias strip instead of the conventional belt, and may be from an inch to several Inches in width. The wider ones are topped stitched along the edges to retain their shape, and should be interlined. They can be of contrasting fabric to add excitement to an evening ensemble, or of the same fabric. By determining the waist measurement plus the amount of' tie desired, these can be made without a pattern. HoWever, don't make them so wide that they fold while being worn. The narrower tie belts are made by folding a strip of bias in half lengthwise, right sides together, and stitching along one edge and across one end, stretching the fabric just a lit* tie at you sew*. The seam allowances are then trimmed, the strip turned to the right side and pressed and the open end slip stitched closed. This type of belt .could also be interlined. Sewing Hint: Don't waste time or money on zippers that aren't packaged for purchase. Even though the dealer says they are just as good, only being sold cheaper, they are not. They are usually not in the needed lengths or colors, and will probably tear out after a few wear- ings. Stick to the reliable brands in packages. They are well worth the difference. Ann Landers Sheimvold on Bridge Expert Avoids Useless Finesse Gazpacho Is Great Cold Soup By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Any cook who has once made Gazpacho is likely never again to let the warm summer months go by without serving this great cold soup. Recipes for it are legion. It comes from the Spanish cuisine, but Americans have taken it to their hearts. Because there are probably as many Spanish versions of Gazpacho as there are cooks in Spain, we too feel free to make variations. The latest recipe for Gazpacho that we have tried is one of these American versions. In this She's Alone, And She Likes It Fall Wedding Planned DEAR ANN: Am I a nut? Frankly, I feel great. I'm not even ashamed, All my friends think I'm an oddball because I'm 29 and not married. They swear I'm putting on a brave front to hide myj misery. I enjoy men— j especially the) high-voltage, con-1 versational type.! I like a fast] game of tennis} with a first-rate] male player, i Tm not to a physically attractive man who has a brain to go along with the brawn. And I've even been "involved" with a few gentlemen. But the thought of a double harness for life is most unappealing. No thanks. I have an excellent job and I enjoy my Work. I still live with my parents (which many friends consider odd), but we get along famously and I conduct my life with no interference whatever. Why should I trade this for housework, squalling kids, whopping cough shots, diapers, mortgages, and maybe even a two-timer or an alcoholic? I'm not knocking marriage. Ann. For those who need it, it's wonderful. But why do people think there's something strange about a woman who doesn't Want it? I wish my friends would quit pushing. I'm a contented gal.

Of course you Won't print this letter because you have no answer.' —ONE OF THE OPPRESSED DEAR ONE: I never made the'statement that women are superior to men nor did I say they were smarter. But come to think of it, did you ever hear of a woman marrying a dumb man for his shape? * * * * DEAR ANN: I want to help the woman who wrote that she is a nervous wreck because her husband insists on smoking in bed. She said he fell asleep with a cigarette in his hand the other, evening and burned a hole in the carpet. I have a solution to this problem. It could save some lives. Please print it. Cigarette smokers should train themselves to hold the cigarette between the third and fourth fingers. It can never drop and anyone who falls asleep with a cigarette be? tween the third and fourth fingers will wake up fast—as soon as the cigarette burns down that far.—MRS. D.R.Z. DEAR MRS.: I checked out your theory with my cigarette smoking friends and they say you are right. Many thanks. * * * * DEAR ANN: If you were 21 would you marry a young fellow who has no bank account, a few smaljl debts, a mother to look after, a very good job, lots of ambition and unlimited faith in the future?—UNDECIDED DEAR UNDECIDED: I did- and today we are celebrating our 29th Wedding anniversary. * * # * "The Bride's Guide," Ann Landers' booklet, answers some- of the most frequently asked questions about weddings.

Kerr And Harrington Vows Said Mrs. Velma Harrington, 227 W. St. Louis Ave., East Alton, and Floyd Kerr, 312 Monroe St., also in East Alton, were married at 5 p.m. Friday, in St. Bernard's Catholic Church before the Rev. William Kekeisen. The new Mrs. Kerr wore a beige lace dress with • matching accessories, and the couple's attendants were Mr. Kerr's brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Kerr. A dinner in Midtown Restaurant followed the ceremony, and a reception was held Sunday in Bethalto. rule tomato juice is used as the base; fresh tomatoes are used as one of the accompaniments. Just one caution: canned tomato juice varies. Some brands seem a little thicker and richer- tasting than others. Bear this in mind and choose the most flavorful juice you can find. In Spanish versions of Gazpacho, the accompaniments are usually chopped fresh raw vegetables. Here we depart from tradition and suggest that you also include a can of small early peas. The peas not only make an excellent flavor addition but they also add substance. GAZPACHO % cup soft bread crumbs y 2 cup water 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 small clove garlic, minced 1 tablespoon chopped onion 2 tablespoons diced canned pimiento 2 cups (about) tomato juice, chilled 2 cups peeled, diced tomato 1 can (8^ ounces) small early peas, chilled and drained l-3rd cup finely chopped cucumber l-3rd cup finely chopped celery l-3rd cup finely chopped green pepper In a small mixing bowl stir together the bread crumbs, water, salt, oil, vinegar, garlic, onion and pimiento. Cover tightly; chill 30 minutes. Puree in an electric blender or sieve. Stir in two cups tomato juice^-this will make a fairly thick mixture. If thicker than you like, add more tomato juice and if necessary add salt. Put tomatoes, peas, cucumber and celery mixed with green pepper into individual small serving dishes and pass with soup. Makes six servings. If soup is not served right after tomato juice is added, refrigerate until serving time. Note: For the bread crumbs we used one thin slice of white bread with the crusts removed. By ALFRED SHEINWOLD One object of good play is to avoid taking unnecessary finesses. It's easy to turn your back on a finesse for the king or queen of a key suit, but you dofl't often have the problem 6t refusing to finesse against an eight-spot. West opens the king of clubs, and you win in dummy with the ace. NoW you can cash the other two side aces and bring the game home by crossruffing—if you can win seven trump .tricks. The danger is that one opponent has a singleton club and the other has a singleton diamond. If yo uare both careless and unlucky you may ruff the second round of clubs or diamonds and find that the next opponent overruffs and returns a trump. This would limit you to six trump tricks, and you would be down one. Ruffing with dummy's six or with your own seven is a type of finesse. Your ruff will be safe if the eight of hearts is held by second-hand rather than by fourth-hand. You would take this type of finesse if you had to, but this is the type of hand in which the finesse is unnecessary. High Ruffs Cash all three of the side aces and ruff a diamond with the nine of hearts. Then ruff a club with the ten of hearts. Continue to ruff diamonds and clubs with high trumps, thus adding six trump tricks to the three side aces. With the first nine tricks safely stashed away, you can then lead a club or a diamond (depending on which hand has the lead) and ruff in the opposite hand with the six or seven of trumps. Either the six or the seven of trumps is sure to win a trick, and your game'is therefore quite safe. Daily Question Partner opens with one diamond, and the next player passes. You hold: A 10 9 5.

The morals of our country have never been in worse shape. If ever we needed a figure of authority in family life it is now. Yet you take every opportunity to knock down the male as head of the house and make him look foolish and weak. American men are losing ground every day. Women own most of the property, most of the securities and most of the real estate. They run everything, including the government. (The wives of the country's leaders make the decisions and tell them what to do.) What we need is an advice columnist who will tell women to stop being so bossy—to sit Cooking Is Fun ••• ly Cecily Browntlon* , AP Food Editor PORCH REFRESHER Fresh Fruit Sundaes Iced Coffee FRESH FRUIT SUNDAES Membrane-free sections from 2 medium oranges including any juice 1 cup thinly sliced peeled peaches 2 tablespoons sugar 1 banana 1 pint vanilla ice cream Gently mix together oranges —and any juice—with peaches and sugar.

He made them fur coats that were funny. And fun. At the time this attitude was considered to be as avant garde as Uie art bo collects. But now nearly everyone else is design- newly everyone els els design- mar, ' And now the impish French. torn* plp^sucklng furrier has goUan Around to introducing fun into fashion shows by changing show* rcwmtoto fun What better occasion for such a show than collections by two French friends who also design with funny bones, Paco Ra- banne and Andres Simon? Paco, as surely everyone knows, a few years ago took dressmaking out of the hands of seamstresses and gave it to the mechanics when he created dresses of plastic discs wired together. Andre Simon is a manufacturer who has witty thoughts about furring people. The scene was the George Kaplan showroom, as usual. But that was all that was usual. Instead of sitting on gold chairs all in a row watching an hour, long parade of quick-change art. iste, the guests moved about, models stayed put. Abso- lutely motionless. Like Marisol dolls, or George Segal scenes, the befurred manikins arranged in surrealistic vignettes stood too still to be real. Imagine yourself making this scene. You pass a row of misses with their heads in brown paper bags with faces painted on, standing as rigid as rigor mortis, Onward, you pass a motion* less miss in a chevron-striped midi fur, and beyond a girl in fur fluff curled up on a pile of fur pillows. Now there is a Vic* torian twosome, primly behind masks. Further, a man on a bicycle leans forward going no* where while another fur-coated male reads a paper, oblivious to the girl beside him wearing the horseface mask. Sprawled on tiger rugs with her head between two tails is a miss in ponypants. Naturally, you will be prompted to say from time to time, "What on earth is that?" That's when the manikins come to life. "Rabbit fur," blurts a miss from behind her paper bag. "Weasel" squeals another. Besides rabbits, weasels, minks, and a Canadian animal called slink, there are ponies and golden fitch, and fluffy fox, and seal. There are furs in jac< quard patterns and plaids and stripes; some dyed pastels, and golds; some things for men and many for women. The furs are fun and the fur show is funnier.
