HOME DECORATING NEWS PATTERN should be used with care in planning the decor of your rooms. Properly used, patterns can bring life, individuality and distinction to the room. Overdone, It can create a confused, "busy" feeling. We're often asked If you can use more than one pattern in the same room. The answer is a qualified "yes" — but not two big, bold patterns. If you choose such a pattern in a print on your sofa, and you'd like another print in a chair, be sure the chair print is small to complement the bolder pattern on the sofa. And if you've gone this far with patterns, avoid using another different one in your draperies. You can achieve variety in your furniture and backgrounds without using different patterns. A change in texture or finish will give you a more subtle variety. Look at the difference when the same color, or one very similar, is used in velvet or an elegant quilted fabric, and again in a rough-textured weave. It will appear different again in smooth nylon draperies. For variety In furnishings; promise yourself to visit our showroom soon. You'll find a delightful range of decorator fabrics, colors, prints and textures to choose from in fine upholstered furniture, along with a beautiful selection of wood finishes.

Added to these traditional decorations were two baskets of white gladiolius which stood beneath the seven candle candelabras. The pews were marked with ivory satin bows accented with sprigs of evergreen. Preceeding the ceremony the i-a'.dles were lighted by Ron Storment of Mt. Vernon and K«*n Swenson of Rockford.

POLLY'S POINTERS These Cleaning Methods Remove Coffee Stains DEAR POLLY - Please tell George that he can remove cof fee stains from the inside of his vacuum cups by putting a tablespoon or more of bleach in them, then filling the cups with warm water. Let soak until the stains seem to be gone. If they are hard to get out, a sponge soaked in bleach can be used for scrubbing them. Be sure to wash the cups in hot water and soap afterwards. — LINDY DEAR POLLY — In answer to George's problem, I wish to say that I clean my plastic coffee cups with a damp cloth anr! silver polish, then wash them in soapy water. This helps mine I every time and I hope helps George, too. —MRS. R.H.Sr. DEAR POLLY -r- I use a denture cleansing tablet to clean my husband's plastic vacuum cup — just follow directions. Every bit of stain leaves and the tablets also can be used to clean coffee stains from other plastic cups. —MARIE DEAR POLLY — I use a lot of nail polish of different kinds. Merely shaking a bottle before using is not enoughto mix the white sediment with the color. Without this mixing, the polish is too dark, I do hope some Polly's Pointers readers can tell me how to mix nail polish thoroughly. —CHERYL DEAR POLLY — If you have an elderly or shut- in friend or relative, pack up a group of your pictures or slides for that person to enjoy and later return. Take along a smell viewer and this will pass some time for a lonely person . Much nicer than trying to tell them about a trip you recently enjoyed. —HELEN. A
