And a black outfit demands sheer black panty hose or stockings. Naturally the clas- sic colors are Iherre for the conservative dresser but even in these there's a little more color.

Now special tall-girl panty hose is avail- able in four of the most popu- lar shades. TIPS FOR BUYERS How do you check up on panty hose quality? Burling- ton industries gives this ad- vice lo help you select panty hose that will fit well, be com- fortable and give maximum wear. 1. Check whether color of panty portion matches the legs. If not, probably the yarns aren't compatible. Con- sequently there may be a dif- ferent rate of shrinkage with a chance of discomfort devel- oping. 2. A stray or loose thread hanging out indicales that the sewing machine operator has Door control. So the rest of the hose may be imperfect. Re- turn the hose to the store. 3. Since most purchasers now buy at least two pair of parity hose or stockings at a time, check that sizes and lengths are the same. Do it at lime of purchase. 4. Be leary about panty hose labelled one-size-fits-all, un- less you are a medium size. This type is the source of most complaints. 5. Check the crotch. Since this area gets most strain and stress, be sure it is sturdily constructed. Best are full back or diamond-shaped pan- els with extra stretch.

(CP) Don and Jean Saltcr are back from an 11-month, cruise in their sloop. To make their long-lime dream come true, they sold their home and 37 acres of farm land and Dr. Sailer iouk a year's leave of absence from his job as professor of earth science at the Univer- sity of Waterloo. Hs wife says: "You can do anything in this world if you're willing to sacrifice." The couple bought their 31- foot sloop in England.

Christopher Sykes, whose new biography of her, Nancy, The Life of Lady Astor, was published recently, draws on his own acquaintance wilh this remarkable politician and socially prominent woman and on the copious letters she wrote and received. Bora Nancy Langhore in Danville, Va., in 1879, she was only 18 when she conlracled her first, unhappy marriage. It ended in divorce. To restore the attractive young divorcee's spirits her parenls sent her lo England. She wrote laler: "I loved it. I had this strange feeling of having come home, rather than of having gone abroad." There was no shortage of suitors for her hand but she chose Waldorf heir to one of the world's richest men American who was nalu- ralized an Englishman in 1899. She married him in 1906, and her father-in-law's principal wedding present lo the couple was Cliveden, a Viclorian mansion overlooking Ihe River Thames. 'NO TASTE' On first entering its baroque splendors, Nancy declared "The Astors have no taslc" ar.d sel about toning down what she regarded as its vul- garilies. Cliveden soon be- came a meeting place for some of the leading miters, poets and politicians of the age. Among her closest friends were Hilaire Belloc: George Bernard Shaw; T. E. Law- rence, better known as Law- rence of Arabia; Sir John Sar- gent, whose famous portrait captured her spirited beauly, Lord Lothian, Britain's ambassador in Washington from 1339 until his sudden GRANDPA'S BUSY Presidential candidate Goorgo McGovcrn was busy working on his speech for his next- to-lti'.t campaign slop as grandson, Matlhow Rowan, nino-months-old, crawled aboul his dosk aboard Ihe Dako- ta Queen plane.

Nancy Astor, vigorously anti-Roman Catholic from her upbringing, espoused Chris- tian Science, campaigned for a partial prohibition of alco- hol, and by natural affinity gravilaled lo the Conservative party. In 1919, at the age of 40, she was elected a member of Parliament for Ihe naval port of Plymouth, after a hec- tic campaign during which she showed masterly skill in dealing with hecklers. One of the mosl disapprov- ing of her new colleagues when she took her seat in the House of Commons, the first woman ever to do so, was Winston Churchill. Once she asked him pointblank why he was rude to her. "Because I find a woman's intrusion into the House of Commons as embarrassing as if she burst into my bathroom when I had nothing with which to defend myself, not even a he replied. CLASHED AT BLENHEIM "Winston, you're not hand- some enough to have worries of that retorted Lady Aslor. Her husband had inher- ited his father's viscountcy ar.d was then Lord Astor. Sykes also as "well the oft-told slory that Ihese two fire- brands had argued ferociously throughout a country weekend at Blenheim Palace. At break- fast, Nancy said: "Winston, if I was married lo you. I'd put poison in you" coffee." Churchill replied: "Nancy, if I was married lo you, I'd drink it." In 1931, Lord and Lady Aslor visited Soviet Russia wilh Bernard Shaw, and inter- viewed Joseph Stalin. Nancy asked him "why hs had slaughtered so many Rus- sians." In reply, the dictator assured her he "hoped the need for dealing wilh political prisoners drastically would soon cease." Shaw prclessed himself de- lighted with everything he saw, but Nancy and Waldorf were, by comparison, almost silent on their adventures. The 1930s, years of appease- ment of Hitler's Germany, saw an unsavory legend springing up around "The Cli- veden a joumalisl's scriplion of Ihe eminent fig- ures who frequented the As- tor's home. TOURED SHELTERS They were seen as "The Olher Foreign se- cretly treating wilh the Kazis. Sykes seeks lo explode this myth, and argues lhat "The Cliveden Set" served as a scapegoat for Britons ashamed of [he pre-war soft- line towards Fascism. The Second World War found Lady Aslor not only as an MP for Plymouth bul also ?.s its mayor. While Gorman bombers haltered the city, she visilcd Ihe air-raid shelters to rally the citizens. On one oc- casion morale seemed low and she toured Ihe shclte "not walking but lurning cart- wheels and amid roars of admiration. She was then aged C2. At the war's end, she fin- ished her own 25 years in Ihe House of Commons, declared herself "an exlinct volcano" then corrected herself: not an exlinct volcano, I'm a politically suppressed one." She died shortly before her 85lh birthday, in 191H. Sykcs sums up her life: "She had enemies amoii] those who did not know her but few indeed among those who did. "She left a legacy of valua- ble public work, of contro- versy, and Ihe curiosity lhat must attach lo a personality EO extraordinary thai il must always puzzle even Ihe closest scrutiny. Bul among Ihose ivlio had her friendship, she left above Ihese an abiding and precious affcclion." Royal couple to celebrate anniversary LONDON (Reuler) The Q u e e n and Prince Philip wil cap celebrations of Iheir silver veddlng anniversary Nov. 20 vith a private party at Buck ngham Palace, attended by 200 o 300 friends and relatives. A palace spokesman said to- day the guest list includes 'rince Juan Carlos of Bourbon king-designate of Spain, and his wife Princess Sophia of Greece vho are cousins of the British royal couple on bolh sides. The spokesman said th guests will include "a sprinkl ng of other foreign royalty where they happen to be rela but the full list has not yet been drawn up. The 25lh anniversary ceremo nies will begin with a mornin thanksgiving service at Wesi mlnsler Abbey to which a gen cral Invitation has been Issuec lo all couples married on th same day. The spokesman said abou 100 couples have applied so far lo attend. Also on the agenda are a car riage procession through the city, lunch with the Lord Mayo of London, a "walkabout" foi the Queen to meet some of her subjects and the unveiling o the cornerstone for a new arts centre. of Irouble willioul Involving others.

They earned water In an 15-gaIlon earthenware jug tiling in Ihe rigging to keep cool. Mrs. Sailer made bread every other day. They caught fish and carried dried meat, vegetables and fruit, bacon, eggs, butter and milk. We coated 12 dozen fresh eggs with vaseline when we lefl Dr. Sailer said. "They kept fresh for three months without refriger- ation. Thirty-six pounds of New Zealand canned butler kept well for seven or eight months. The Canary Islands supplied us with fresh manges which were just as tasty at the cud of the 26-day Atlantic crossing." Mrs. Sailer said her favorite food purchase was nine gal- lons of long-life milk bought in pint cartons in England. It kenl fresh for six months. They said they learned lo use other foods from people Ihey met at stops along their route. The Sailers said they be- lieve thousands of people are travelling as they did, seeking out-of-the-way places to visit. LIVING WAS CHEAP When they anchored off what they believed was a de- serted island in the West In- dies, they met an Australian family and a British author. They organized a goat hunt and served the catch roasted in wine. They learned lo use conch meat, which provides a source of protein for people in iso- lated islands. Mrs. Sailer served il in chowders and ground wilh onion as a sea- going "sleak tartare." Her husband said: "Jean's conch fritters were mouth-wa- lering." The Sailers have decided that once the initial outlay for a boat and supplies is made, life at sea is cheaper than maintaining a house. In warm climates there is no fuel bill and mooring fees are less than taxes. Wardrobes are simple. Aboard the sloop, Mrs. Sailer wore 'jeans or a bikini. "I wore oul Iwo bikinis. It's a simple and inexpensive wardrobe." THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "What would you rather have tonight a clean house, an elaborate dinner, or an ungrouchy Swing to classical fashions brings pearls back in style NEW YORK (AP) The pen- dulum of fashion has placed pearls once more around Ihe necks of United Stales women and pearl producers couldn't he happier. The benefits, however, nre mainly esthetic, not economic. No pearls arc produced In Ihe U.S. since the painslaking, lime-consuming cultured pcnrl growing process is an art only the Japanese have mastered. The increasing demand for pearls, which has pushed U.S. sales for Ihe first eight months of this year up 22 per ccnl, camo at a Umo when Ihe supply has been diminished pollu- lion ill Japanese waters. The combination of high de- mand and reduced supply has sent pricc.s up some 30 per cent, so that a M-inch strand of eight millimetre pearls now overages aboul SlGli. Alan Macnow, a spokesman for the jKiarl industry, put It Ibis way: "Fashions are going hack lo Ihe classical look, away from miniskirts and bold colors.
