PRINTED PATTERN A548 SIZES 10-18 Dashing Cape Tops Sheath Smart apart, superb together—that's the story of Mr. Blackwell's hit costume for any place, any season of the year. Both parts are surprisingly simple to sew thanks to clever seaming by Mr. Blackwell of California. No waist seams to the dress—the cape is made of twin circles of fabric seamed together. Make Women Have More Headaches Of all the afflictions that human beings are heir to, headache is unquestionably the most universal. "More than half the people who see a physician have a headache as one of the complaints," observes Dr. Arnold P. Friedman, head of a clinic at a New York hospital. Many people with ordinary headaches don't see a doctor, seeking relief through one pain-killer or another. Medical investigators in recent years have concluded that the female of the species is particularly prone to the condition called headache. In the great majority of cases, it's either migraine or "nervous tension" headache. Migraine, which is usually throbbing, chronic and familial, affects at least twice as many women as men; some scientists say it's nine times as frequent in females. But far more common is the nervous tension type, which accounts for seven out of 10 headaches. In a tension or "muscle contraction" headac)ie, the head feels as. though it's in a vise, the,pain is often dull and steady, muscles tighten at the^-I^^ack of the head and neclj;' and in the shoulder. Pain may be short or go on for days and weeks, returning repeatedly. Unlike migraine, this kind of headache occurs during the immediate period of anxiety or tension, rather than following it. For specific reasons—physiological and psychological— women experience more than their share of nervous headaches. the dress in one color—the cape in check, plaid or contrast—or make dress and cape to match in shantung, linen, double-knit wool or jersey.

What Do Senior Women Only The lady who is getting on in years is no longer the sweet, but drably dressed little grandmother of yesteryear. Instead, she's probably an active, highly productive woman whose stylish apparel suits her modern activities. Regardless of age, women can be well-dressed, according to Ruth Diez clothing specialist at the University of Wisconsin. So don't hesitate to keep pace with fashion, Mrs. Senior Citizen. Certainly you'll want any new clothes you buy to be comfortable, flattering and wearable. But there's no reason why you can't find these features in well-styled garments. Income goes down in retirement years, so cost is a big item to consider before shopping. Durability is a must for really lasting pleasure. Look for well-finished, ample seams, good hems and well-made buttonholes. Also check labels to see if garments are colorfast and pre-shrunk. Remember that wash and dry fabrics are especially nice to care for. Undergarments When you shop, buy foundation garments first. Some women merely need undergarments that firm and give stability. Others want more support and control. For ease in putting-on, ask for a front-closing girdle. And you'll find that the new lightweight foundation garment fabrics give even more comfort. Some styles of outer apparel will be most becoming to you. If your waistline is a few inches larger than when you were twenty-five, explore the beltless, waist- less dress market. Look for skirts that are not too long, but long and full enough not to pull up when you sit. Short-waisted women, or those with other fitting problems, are often most comfortable in proportioned clothing. And three-quarter sleeves will probably be the most flattering. There are many comfort features to look for in dresses. First, be sure you can handle fastenings. Sometimes back zippers and hooks and eyes present problems. Then, you may prefer a soft to a scratchy fabric, and the lighter in weight, the better for comfort. Select a dress with a jacket for easy adapting to temperature changes. Colors Color is fun, so make use of it. Avoid neutrals and patterns that make you blend into the background. Blues seem to be favorites with older women. Maybe, you'd like to try one of the warm colors for a change. If blue is your choice, however, be sure you select a value that compliments your skin tone. It may have changed somewhat since you last thought about it. Ask, too, if you need a change in cosmetic shades. There are several shortcuts to a pleasant and rewarding clothes-shopping trip. Save walking by first studying fashion magazines. Select styles that appeal to you, then call or write stores in your area to see if they have the dresses in your size. You may find that some stores will send garments out on approval. If you shop in person, wear comfortable shoes and undergarments. Take your time to be sure you get the most in comfort, wear and pleasure from your new wardrobe additions. Citizens Wear? Men Only A man looks and feels his best when he's well dressed. This is true of Mr. Senior Citizen, too, according to Lenore Landry, clothing specialist at the University of Wisconsin. Older men, however, sometimes ignore or forget their wardrobes. Perhaps this is because they accept fashion changes more reluctantly than younger men. Or there may be less money to spend on clothes and fewer social functions to attend. But this doesn't mean clothing is unimportant. On the contrary, a man will probably be quite involved with community activities during his retirement years. So why shouldn't he be at his stylish and most comfortable best. If you know an elderly gentleman who could use a few additions to his closet, encourage a shopping trip. Maybe you, or someone else whose opinion he values, could go along. He'll want to think of what he needs first. Then, if he takes his time and selects carefully, he can choose clothes that are durable and lastingly stylish. Remember, he's not as hard on clothes as he once was. So, naturally, they'll serve a long while. Style An older man may continue to wear a suit style he long ago decided was his best. Before buying a new one, he'll want to ask if the style is as becoming as it used to be. If his figure and posture have changed a bit, a new choice may be a good idea. Be sure the suit fits well, especially through the shoulders. Not everyone has the ideal square shoulder line that suits are made for. Have a tailor alter shoulder seams if it's necessary. Mr. Senior Citizen may have trouble finding a suit with a vest, if that's his choice. So why not consider buying one of two separate vests. They come in snappy or subtle colors, styles and patterns. And by mixing and matching them with suits, they serve as wardrobe stretchers. Fit Fit is important in slacks, too. Many styles come with co-ordinated sweaters and jackets. They're comfortable to wear and often made of easy-care fabrics. Mrs. Senior Citizen will appreciate that part. Make sure trousers fit well in the waistline and crotch. Also check ease in the hip line. The gentleman shopper will probably notice an immediate morale boost if he tries colors he's never worn before. Go into mixed tweedy colors to help save on cleaning and pressing bills. They don't show spots, soil and wrinkles as readily as plain colors. Select a few sportshirts for casual wear. Look for cuts that permit easy movement and allow for extra strain. Raglan sleeves are a good choice. And knit T- shirts are wonderful underneath-it-all. They're soft and absorb perspiration. So they'll feel cool in summer and warm in cold weather. They protect outer shirts from stains, too. Sundgy, July 25, 1965 RACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN This is Your Future The Battle Against That Summer Bug With the warmth of summer comes a horde of insects invading the home and bringing discomfort and damage to furnishings. The battle against them breaks down into two areas — first the fight to keep them out of the home, 4hen the attempt to prevent' them from breeding once they've gotten a foothold somewhere in the dwelling. Garbage-cans in the summer heat are a bug paradise. This can be dealt with by making sure lids fit airtight, and that the garbage put inside is first wrapped tightly. ' The garden is another in sect source. Setting up the proper birdhouses will bring charming feathered creatures that feed on bugs, such as the purple martin which lives on mosquitos. Lady bugs feed on aphids and can be INSPIRATION A good listener inspires conversation. Monastery Is Now a Church MIAMI—An 800-year- old Spanish monastery, described as the oldest building in the United States, has become the home of Miami's Episcopal congregation of St. John the Divine. The Roman Catholic monastery building was bought by the late William Randolph Hearst in 1925 and shipped to the United States in 11,700 packing cases. The church arranged for its use with Wil liam S. Edgemon, its present owner. Monday — Last Day SALE! Sandy's Entire Stock of HANDBAGS 20% 50% o« Park Free — While Shopping Here THRIFTY SANDY'S Downfown — 512 Wis.

Ruel of Coiffures Americana created the nest­ like offering in New York. bought and turned loose. The astonishing preying mantis, a fearsome looking insect, lives on other insects, and children should be instructed not to harm them. The same principles apply within the home. Don't accumulate old clothing in closets, rags for cleaning purposes, and bundles of newspapers or household records in cardboard cartons. These are superb dwelling places for roaches. One of the biggest scourges of man's property is the carpet beetle which loves to hide in, as well as feed upon rugs and other fibre floor coverings. Carpet beetles once having gotten a foothold, will get to clothes closets and ruin hundreds of dollars in suits, coats and dresses. A resilient tile floor with a hard surface in solid vinyl tile gives no hiding place to carpet beetles and offers them no nutrition. In the kitchen and laundry room areas, make sure you have no drippy faucets or leaking dish or clothes washer. All these annoyances plus keeping food leftovers and garbage too long, attracts a horde of flies, roaches, silverfish and mosquitos. To Help Sick Child Get Well, Keep His Diet Close to Normal A sick child's chances for a speedy recovery are better if he eats a nearly normal diet, according to Joan Reid, nutrition specialist at the University of Wisconsin. Make sure your child gets the best possible nutrition when he is ill, Miss Reid advises. Give him solid foods if he will take them, unless the doctor has ordered liquids only. A child with an upset stomach will probably best accept bland foods. Try soft- cooked eggs, toast, milk toast, cooked bland vegetables, custards, gelatins, ice cream and cooked fruits. You might also encourage him to take fruit juices, milk and fat-free broth. Water offered every waking hour seems to help children with digestive upsets. Sucking pieces of cracked ice and sipping small amounts of carbonated beverages are also good if he has trouble keeping down food. To a youngster with a sore throat or mumps, fruit juice may seem tart. In this case, add a little water or sugar. But get him back on natural juice as soon as he is able to take it. A sick child often needs more protein and calories. So it is a good idea to fortify the foods he will eat. Eggnogs and milkshakes are good, high calorie foods. And dried milk solids added to whole milk or cream soups really boost protein. Do not force a sick youngster to eat. Rather offer smaller amounts of food in five or six little meals. Help your child if he has trouble holding spoons, cups or glasses. If you thin his soup, he can drink it from a cup. Encourage strength-building eating by making his tray and plate as attractive as possible. Pleasing flavors and aromas, too, will make it easier for him to eat well while he is recovering.
