Will a hooked rug made of silk stockings be very serviceable if used in places where it would be exposed to strong light? A. Silk deteriorates on exposure to light. By OLIVE ROBERTS BARTON Should toys and playthings be: A. Muscle building? B. Aids to Initiative and planning? C Beautiful rather than wearable? D. Always suited to age? The old idea of buying a toy for a child was to have it last forever. The doll, if it cost enough, was the cause of many a whipping when it was broken. Today, we think more of toys as a means of developing the child's imagination and ingenuity, and we have learned to look upon reasonable wear and tear as natural. As for "A," I think that every parent today knows that energy toys calculated to strengthen young muscles and teach body control are necessary. But there is such a thing as putting all the eggs into one basket and neglecting constructive playthings that develop thought, wit and dexterity. The proud father who wants his son to be a Paul Bunyan will insist on balls, bats, boxing gloves, exercisers and so on. He may not be at all sympathetic with his wife who buys games or stamp albums or butterfly nets. Yet she is doing her boy a favor, because she tries to round out his play experience. So both "A" and "B" should supplement each other. Mind stretchers are as important as muscle stretchers. Playthings should be chosen for the most part for their suitability as to age, although the preference of the child should be harkened to. Mental age and physical age do not always coincide. Tiny children learning to handle toys need big, safe things to drag about. At three they will suddenly develop a fondness for small things. The little fellow who was all for wagons and cars will suddenly take more interest in the things he can carry. The car passes from the "ob ject" stage to the "agent" used as s means to an end. ' Thus it goes all along the line. There are many stages in the child's toy hunger and need. Manufactur ers have spent long years of re search to discover the seven ages of toyhood." Often a child will say that he does not want a carpenter set, or a box of ready-made mechanics to construct miniature bridges, only to find later that he prefers it to all else. So children are not always tne best judges of all they want. a V7,vN Jane Withers Sets Example For Reducing Look As Good AsYourHome A. Are there any black roses? A.

(c) Say, "I was especially inter ested in what you said about so-and-so?" Every plump teen-age girl who is beginning to be clothes, boy and figure - conscious, wishes she were slim. And such remarks as, "Don't worry, you're a nice size, or "You ought to be glad to be so healthy " or "Youll slim down in a couple of years, just as I did," really aren't of ' much help. But perhaps the story of Jane Withers will be. A year ago last summer, the young actress reached the wish-I-were-slim stage one day when her gang came over for a swim. "I look like a cow in a bathing suit," she told her mother.. Jane was 12 then, but she wore size 14 dresses high-waisted one, so her rotund little stomach wouldn't show. She weighed 111 pounds too . much for her 5 feet of height. Her hips were 34 inches, and her waistline a scandalous 21 y2 More humiliating, her best friend blond June Carlson, of the Jones Family series, had a 24-inch waist Then and there Jane bet June that by the summer of 1939 her waistline too. would be small. Jane won the bet. Now she weighs . exactly 100 pounds. Her hips are 32, and her waistline 23 She can wear a size 12 dress with out alterations. First, Jane and her mother settled the health question. The twice-a year examinations that movie children' get showed that Jane would not need any special diet or super intended exercises. Then changes in menus were made at home and changes in food between meals. Fewer rich desserts and bigger salads became the order of the dinner in the Withers home. Jane didn't cut out entirely any of her favorite foods She simply ate smaller portions of everything. Between meals she ate oranges and drank other fruit juices instead of sweets. She used to lie on her back and touch the floor behind her head with her feet. Now she can touch it with her knees. The diagonal floor-touch helped, too reaching the right hand over to the left foot while keeping , knees straight, 1 then reversing, touching right foot with left hand. There were stretching "routine, too. "I think we started at the right time just as Jane started to grow," Mrs. Withers concluded. "Now she's not only slim, with a nice waistline, but her carriage is excellent." 4r; Laser-. ,J?yn f a WZl " 1 ersonality and Furniture Should Be Matched ly wouldn't let anyone persuade you to use pink anywhere In any room. This means, of course, that the chic woman simply uses good Jud- ment in answering the question fhe asks herself before buying furniture or deciding on a color scheme. The question is: Is this becoming to me, my personality and the kind of life I lead? By ALICIA HART When the chic woman redecorates her home, she wants her house to be a Suitable setting for the kind of person she is a background against which she will feel at ease - and therefore look and be more poised and gracious. If she's a sophisticate she would no more think of doing a conventional, comfortable but unimaginative kind of decorating in every room than she would of buying a pretty-pretty but . none too smart dress. She's likely to go in tor striking color effects. Or pieces of furniture that would be just re markable in the home of the woman across the street but which are so right for the sophisticate herself that no guest notices any particular piece. For the brisk young modern whose clothes are streamlined, whose talk is of the latest book, the best play, the most interesting chit-chat about world-famous figures, a mod ern decor might be just right. But it would hardly do for a motherly type with a household of children and a pet or two. The latter's warm per sonality might become a little blurred against .a background so foreign to it. The matter of color is something to consider, too. If your skin is quite sallow, why cover the divan or even a chair in a particular shade which intensifies sallow tones?
