Precious table linens could be reserved for the special occasions which really merited its use--and the expense of proper laundering afterward. However, many women have felt it necessary to use good linen napkins for even the most informal kind of entertaining or to apologize to their guests' if paper napkins were'used.

As she freshness is of first A mussed napkin is a soiled one is un- says, . . importance, unpleasing, thinkable." So there you are, girls. If you need authority you have it now. If your budgets are unlimited and you have a houseful of servants, then this Jittle item doesn't concern you. Otherwise--well, I prefer to run my house rather than let it run me.
