Hie show, which began as a Me-day event in ,1958 when there were i43 entries in 16 classes, is sponsored as a major fund-raising project by Thirteen-year-old Missy Cummings, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Keith Cummings of Des Moines, takes her registered quarter horse, "Beats Me," over a practice jump in preparation for her fifth year as an entry in the Des Moines Charity Horse Show. Missy and her horse will enter a hunter % and a jumper class. She'll .ride her father's thoroughbred gelding in hunter, jumper and equitation classes. , . the Junior League of Des' Moines. Profits from this year's show are-earmarked jfor the league's community trust fund, which is currently . being used to .help finance construction ,.of. the Des Moines Center of Science and Industry. In the past 11 years, more than $(03.0fl<0 from the show has been put into community projects. _ "This started put as' a simple show put on by some hard working little ladies," says show secretary Mrs. Clarence E. Davis. "But it's grown bigger every year and we're hoping it will become commonly identifiable in horse circles.". For several years, the show drew mainly from Iowa , stables, but now the majority of entries come from out of "horse show circuit,'"—says Mrs. Davis, and professional horse showmen from as far away as Houston, Tex., now regularly enter. rpHE MAJOR divisions of JL the show are American saddle-bred horse, hackney pony, harness pony, walking horse, parade horse, draft horse, hunter and jumper. A wide! y'known horse show judge, Art Simmons of. Mexico, Mo., will judge all entries but - the hunters and jumpers. They will be judged by Wilson Dennehy of Denver, Colo, • "We were incredibly lucky to get Mr. Simmons," says Mrs. Davis. "He's practically a living legend in horse circles and is judge of. the Washington (D.C.) International, the Madison Square Garden Horse Show and the Lexington (Ky.) Charity Horse Show." Dennehy is a member of Design Your Industrial Zippers SEW SIMPLE by Eunice Farmer So.:, many -patterns for sports- U .wear call for' the large industrial type of zippers. In the city where we live, they are almost impossible to get and if I do find them, they are never the right length. What can you suggest about this and why do pattern companies use One Pattern: Two Smart Ideas this detail without letting the fabric departments know about them so that they could supply us? ' —Judy S. SAYSr'Trying ~t gadgets that are sometimes used-on patterns is. quite a task. I will suggest you use a conventional zipper and then use a decorative braid or ribbon as a trim around the zipper and you will have a very attractive, original closing with the appearance of the cbunky type of detail. , You will want the zipper to be exposed, not covered. This will require you to machine stitch a little more than V» M RS. ANNE 80ECLER of St. Louis, Mo., wins the Tailor Trix pressing board this week for hen suggestion as follows: "Last year I made a suit with a high, stand-lip, mandarin type of collar which, although properly interlaced, did not hold its stand-up shape. It had waves and ripples and the front points did not behave as I, a perfectionist in sewing, felt they should. . "Since the suit could use a little color contrast and this i is such a scarf year, I threaded a long scarf through the ' bias collar and let it extend at each end. It filled in the bias collar, "gave it a well-rounded shape and the scarf adds just the Bright touch, tied at the center front. I intend to use my 'mistake' again on oiher garments because I love the new look I achieved." inch each side of the center front line and straight across the lower end according to the length of zipper you will use.

T HE Des Moines show is one of (he few big horse shows offering competition in the draft horse division.

I stopped hearing my moth- e r' s -voice when I was 18. She was only 44 years old when she died. I recall, with a fair amount of guilt, that I was tired of HER voice, too — especially when she told me to do things I didn't want to do, or reprimanded me for behaving in ah unkind or inconsiderate manner. I've thought hundreds of times these past 30 years that I would give anything under the sun if I* could hear my mother's voice again. Please print this, Ann, for the benefit of the.sons and daughters who are still .lucky enough to hear a mother's voice. Tell them to listen — to appreciate — and be thankful. -Midland, Mich. Ann says: Here's your letter. And on a most appropriate 'day. Thank you for writing. v ' Eye of Beholder Dear Ann Landers t I get a kick out of, people who write and use such words as "ob- scsne" and "pornographic." These words can have different meanings, according to the individual who uses them. It's often difficult to decide where art leaves off and pornography begins. Dirt as well as beauty can be in the eye ' of the beholder. I remember a little story told to us by a teacher who was everybody's favorite. When she was a college student during .World War I, the coeds all wore dark skirts and white starched shirtwaists ; Every morning the girls Inspected their white shirtwaists to see if..i^ey were clean enough to. wear one more day. Some of the gals had a hard time deciding. The housemother gave them this rule of thumb, which is as good to'day asMt; was'then — "If there's any doubt in your, mind, it's dirty." ' —Grand Forks, N.D. Ann says: Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. and information, he picks up aj store^bfhis own. So questions* dare holNte Ignored though! some of thenNto not seem td be worth answer}] : Children _ask. questions noi only for information cause theyjave foutuhthet a quick way to get adult afi tentlon. Since to gain alien-* lion is one of the child's! prime needs, he does not hesitate (o use 'the method hg has found most successful irt getting it. this means that some of these questions will be asked merely for the sake of ask* ing, not for what he may gaiii by the answer. Questions are conversational fodder. Any adult who comes to the home is sure to ask, "Now, how old are you? Do you have a little sister? How do you like your teacher?" This makes up the usual chit-chat between adults and small unknown children. : But questions • which may test the mother's knowledg^ have to be taken more sef riously. "Why does the suti go down at night and the moon come up?" | Questipns about sex bother parents.- They know thej should answer honestly but' they feel deep qualms at revealing anything about their relationship with the other! parent. They pussy-foot around such questions or give blunt and all-encompassing answers which only confuse the young child. < But any parent knows thaj an intelligent child is going to ponder7qver what she says- and come up with more quesf tions. This is the way knowledge grows. ; Ask' yourself, too, If you wouldn't prefer to be the one the child comes to when puzzled «bout"f anything? YOIJ want to be the child's confidant — then know that to answer his or her questions when asked is the path tc that end.
