I sent one to my son in Vietnam and got a real heart- flet thanks for his "Handy Dandy Washing Machine." Clean so."ks and underwear are a must in that climate and laundry is a real problem. A discarded can the plunger and some soap work wonders for him. If I win a Pollji*Qfollar it surely will go to "Juration Vietnam." — DEAR POLLY — I am using white wool to embroider a daisy design on an olive green linen background. This is on stretcher strips and I plan to frame ft when finished. I know dust will collect on the white yarn ard dry cleaning will be difficult without removing the lin- ne from the stretcher strips. Is there a spray that would dust proof this or can some reader come up with a helpful hint on how to keep this embroidery HOME DECORATING NEWS COLOR CHANGE according to the setting in which they are placed. Anyone who has ever tried to match paint knows how deceptive colors can be. One which looks perfect in the color chip, or even in the can, may be quite different on your walls. This chameleon-like quality of color, taking on different tones with varying lipht or shade, applies to fabrics as well as paint. Bear it in mind when choosing major pieces or accessories such as throw pillows. A purple pillow, for example, may look vivid and strongly colored in the showroom, lying against a white background. But if you take it home and toss it onto a dartf blue sofa, it won't seem vivid at all. ....The same applies to other colors. The greater the con trast With the surroundings the brighter the colors will seem. If you want to subdue color, use it with related shades.

With a little know-how you can wear tomorrow what you cut out the day before. Your sewing almost begins "with the selection of the fabric. For instance, if you select a one-way print it should be handled as a napped fabric such as velvet, corduroy and satin and the pattern Socially Yours By NADINE Miss Melba Jean Carr and Mrs. Rosemary Carr have returned to their homes in this city after visiting a few days with their sister and family, Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Gerson and daughter, Cynthia Elizabeth in Huntsville, Ala. -o- -o- -o- Mrs. Stella Pierce of Bonnie spent the past week visiting with her niece and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Woodworth of Bluford.

Permanent preBs fabrics are a boon to the housewife. However, certain rules must be followed in sewing these fabrics to get the best results. For stitching, polyester threads are highly recommended, although a good mercerized cotton will do a good job. There should be only a slight pressure on th£ pressure foot and 10 to 12 stitches to the inch. In the case of pockets, tabs and collars, top stitching close to the edge sometimes gives a smoother, flatter finish. However, if yoK do find puckers (and it can happen) check your tension and see if it is too tight. Plastics Plastics need special handling. Do not pin the pattern to the plastic, use weights or tiny pieces of Scotch Tape. Use paper clips or Scotch Tape to put parts together temporarily. • Use 8 to 10 stitches to the inch in machine stitching. Do not try to sew plastics by hand. Glue seams and hems flat with a slue purchased at any department store. Stripes and Plaids Stripes a:.'d pl'aids call for special laying out before cutting to match the stripes arid plaids. Check first to see if it is a one-way stripe or plaid. If it is the pattern must be laid as if the fabric had a nap or was a one-way print, here shown. One-way stripes or plaids must be laid out so stripes or plaids will match at all seams. When I went into that insurance company office, I thought I was seeing evidence of job eruality for women. What I mean is, I thought the girl at the reception desk was a carpenter because she had on baggy slacks and a man's shirt. After waiting for a few minutes (I didn't want to interrupt in case she was getting ready to nail something together), I approached the desk and discovered she was a receptionist with her own personal version of a pants suit. different story and Ihe pants available now are beautifully designed, comfortable, and fi.ould be worn at home.

DEAR ABBY: I am n minister who has gotten a lot of good ideas for my sermons from your column, but I must, disagree with you. A woman wrote that, she had "fallen in ; love" with her pastor, and couldn't keep from thinki n g some thoughts she shouldn't entertain while sitting in church. You advised her to transfer to ' a sister congregation without i telling her pastor the reason. Abby, we clergymen arc aware that some of our parishioners do fall in love with us, . and we are trained to cope with i that situation. It happened to! | me, and with the help of a ' psychiatrist. I was able to sot | the lady straight . j I would have suggested that j the woman confess to her pastor 1 how she feels about him. Then j ! I would recommend laht she j see a psychiatrist, and together j they can work her problem thru j j If she follows your advice and j ! transfers to another congroga- J tion she will still have the same ' ; feeling. i NO NAME, PLS | DEAR NO NAME : Unlortuna- i tely not every clergyman is | i trained to cope with the above | ' situation. Neither would every : woman who "falls in love with ; her pastor" agree to confess' | her feelings to him, then con- • suit a psychiatrist and "work ; her problem thru." I still think the lady would do well to follow my advice. : DEAR ABBY: I have been criticized for giving a relative a vacuum cleaner for a wedding i present. Will you please tell me what is wrong with such a gift? Granted it is not as glamorous as silver or crystal, hut in my opinion it is a lot more useful for a newly wedded couple who are just starting out in housekeeping. I would like your opinoin IN PRINT, Please, but withhold my name. PRACTICAL DEAR PRACTICAL: Good lor you! It's good to know there are practical folks like yourself who refuse to get sucked into giving gifts that are more ornamental than useful. DEAR ABBY: Thank you for saying that some working mothers have better behaved children than some stay-at-home motel's that it's the quality not the quantity of time spent with children that counts. I am not a working mother, but the daughter of one. I'm not bragging , but I think my borhtcrs and sisters and I (there; are four of usi are very well brought up. We are all proud of our mother and wouldn't do anything to upset or disappoint her. We each have our duties and do them without having to be reminded. We see more of our 'working" mother than some of our friends see of their mothers who are so wrapped up in their clubs and organizations that they don't have time for their own childrne. One I know is so busy helping "underprivileged" children , that her own have run completely wild. I am 17 and the youngest of four, and I think we are all better off for having had a working mother. 1 Sincerely yours, PAM DEAR ABBY: I'm with you.
