THE principal reason that husbands are against afternoon bridge parties is that the women are apt to arrive home late and, with more haste than thqught, assemble a meal that may be nourishing but is usually uninteresting. One of my friends has devised a bridge-day dinner that makes her husband actually glad she plays bridge. Here's the menu: Tomato Juice Float Salmon Grill with Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple Hearts o Lettuce Salad Fresh Straivberry Sundae To make the salmon grill, grease a baking sheet and on it place three large slices of salmon, six cooked sweet potatoes which have been sliced lengthwise, and six slices of pineapple. Brush them all with melted butter, and sprinkle fish with salt, pepper and paprika. Place pan about two inches from hot broiling unit. Brown the fish, potatoes and pineapple on both sides, then slip the baking rhet into the oven until the fish is cooked through.

Method of Watering Rock Plants Described By Noted Horticulturist Cooks' Kitchen Tours Conducted by Vircjinia Ross dust and dirt without injury to the material. If the garment is much soiled, it Is well to change the suds, as clean suds work out dirt most satisfactorily. If there are particularly soiled spots on elastic It Is sometimes helpful to use a uashcloth to cleanse theso portions. Care should be used, however, not to fray or wear the material. Kor stubborn stains, put qnme of the suds themselves on the material and gently rub them into ths stains with the fingers, or work some dry soap flakes or , granules into the spots with the lingers or the cloth. v RINSE CAREFULLY Rinse thoroughly, using plenty of lukewarm to cool water. It Is the rinse water which removes Uie last traces of loosened soil and soap left In the fabric from the suds bath. Three' rinses are usually ample. Squeeze out the water thoroughly ufter each rinse. Complete removal of all tho soap and loosened dirt Is necessary to get fresh, clean looking garments. SQUEEZE out as much water as possible, but do not twist or pull. If garments arc rolled In Turkish towels and some of the moisture absorbed, they dry more quickly and are not so likely to streak while drying. Knead out tho moisture and remove tho garments from the towel Immediately. Do not allow colored materials to remain rolled up while damp. Gently shako out the folds and wrinkles and case the garment Into shape. Garments that tend to shrink may be gently stretched before they arc hung to dry. The metal clasps on the gurters should he released and elastic loosened. If this Is done the gurters tend to keep their shnne longer. If the clnt-ps arc not loosened, rust may form on the material underneath. Dry garments In a good current of air In the shade or Indoors. Never dry garments containing elnstlc- or rubber In the sun nor near excessive heat as a radiator or register, as rubber Is likely to become affected by excessive heat. The garment may be pinned on a line so that the weight Is evenly dlst-lbutcd. or may be placed on n clean towel or paper on a flat surface. In the latter case. It Is well to stuff a towel or tissue paper inside the garment so that the air may circulate between the thicknesses of the material.

(2) For Newly-Planted things. If your newly-planted plants and heavy drinkers, like some Gentians and Gcum Reptans are really dry. then water them well. Give them a good downright soaking: no sprinklings or driblets. (3) The Root and Foliage Rule Soak the roots and avoid the foliage. Most rock plants In this climate get far more overhead water than is good for them, without your help. (4) The Right Size Rose. Use a can with a line "rose" that is a cap with very small holes for distributing the water as It leaves the spout. If you don't use a rose, all you will do will be to wash gravel and soil away from Dlants on the slopes. Water higher up than the plants' position and apply In short, gentle, numerous doses, pausing between each to allow the water to soak In.

Before washing a new sweater, or knitted garment, test It to be sure the colors are fast, by squeezing an inconHplcuous portion In clear, lukewarm water for live minutes or so. Knitted things often get out of shape when wet, so to losure restoring them to the correct proportions draw an outline on clean wrapping paper before wetting. Incidentally, the Ideal time to diaw this outline Is when the sweater Is new, before you have stretched tho elbows. DON'T RUB Remove unwashable buttons, buckles, etc., and turn tho sweater wrongsldc out. Make rich suds with a good soap flake. Always have suds and rinse waters lukewarm or cool. Put In the sweater and wash by squeezing the suds through and through tho material. Ncvr rub. Wash quickly Do not aoak colored garments. : rtlnsc thoroughly in plenty of lukewarm or cool water. Squeeze out tho water don't twist. Then roll the sweater In a dry Turkish towel, kneed for a moment and unroll. Don't leave colored garments rolled up while wet. Ease the sweater Into shape on the outline. If the sweater tends to shrink, pin It in place on a firm surface as on a corrugated pasteboard, or an old rug. Use pins which will not mst. When the sweater la dry, remove It from the outline, turn It rightslde out and press It lightly with a warm Iron, using a damp cloth to remove wrinkles and pit murks.

NOWADAYS, whether one prefers a soft lastex pantle glrdlo, only one stop removed from undies, or a firmer one-piece garment with a few restraining bones, she will Hnd It built for comfort. And another advantage of these present day foundation garments Is that they may be washed frequently In order to keep them as spotless as our other underwear, Tho following simple method rejuvenates foundation garments again and again. Remove trimmings as flowers, ribbons, etc., which might be un-warhable and thus slain the garment. MILD SOAP Turn garments wrongslde out. In this way It Is easier to remove perspiration, etc. Mend holes or runs to prevent their becoming enlarged. Always use a mild, neutral soap for washing foundation garments, lluvc the suds lukewarm or cool. Then put In the garment. It Is possible to wash garments of similar color together if desired, but never wash a dark garment containing unfaat dye with light colored things. In case the dye is even slightly unfsst.
