To Beautify Your Home By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer Decorative accessories, a far cry from the household junk available several decades ago, are helping to shape a new look of good taste in the American home. Many accessories are imports, eight won awards given by the American Institute of Interior Designers. The 1963 awards are for hand- woven tapestries from Sardinia; black procelain bowls and planters, matte glaze vases, sterling silver and porcelain cutlery from Germany; Swedish serving trays with non-slip surfaces; cast iron casseroles with white enamel interiors and teak handles, stack- able bottles from Finland. There are hand-cut solid glass sculpture from Sweden and a number of new pieces of Danish silver. Winning towels made and designed in America are called "Snowflow- ers," "Northern Lights" and "Stockholm." Though it was always possible for important American homes to choose accessories from antiques shops, tiie average home 15 years ago was limited to a garish assortment of cheap ceramic figurines, wall plaques, ash trays. Salt poured from a gazelle's horns or a penguin's fins. Ship's wheel designs were likely to reveal grooves slated for tomato juice glasses. One outlandish design overlapped another. One of the first to observe the unrealistic inequality of accessories and furniture in the home was Andrea Marangoni, president of an import company, who 13 years ago noted that "although Americans made the most beautiful furniture in the world, there was absolutely no line of good or even medium-priced accessories, "such as mirrors, sconces or even ash trays. "Ihere was nothing but cheap and unimaginative stuff available," he recalls, "so I went to Italy and created a line of accessories, the first major accessory line launched here, I believe. The stores didn't want to fiddle with higher - priced accessories at first, but soon realized they were wasting wall space, and that good decorative accessories could help in the sale of furniture." Maragoni has stuck with traditional accessories, because those designs supply a warmth that appeals to Americans, he says. He uses wrought iron, carved kiln- dried Linden wood, employs some gilding and deep pastel colors in antique finishes in his mirrors, sconces, plaques, wall brackets and hundreds of other accessories. Many companies have copied his items verbatim, he says, others are copied for the lower-priced market. But Marangoni adds that this helps raise the level of the decorative accessories field which has long needed to further the cause of good design. Ottawan Receives Study Grant Elizabeth Claiborne, chemistry instructor at Ottawa University, has received a National Science Foundation grant to study eight weeks next summer at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, N. Y. The course in instrumental analysis will last from June 24 to Aug. 16. This will be the fifth consecutive summer that Miss Claiborne has received a National Science Foundation grant. In 1959, she was at Oregon State College for six weeks; in 1960, at University of Iowa eight weeks; in 1961, at Emory University, Atlanta, Ga., nine weeks, and last summer, at American University, Washington, D. C., for six weeks. Last summer she did study on the history and philosophy of science and mathematics. In Iowa she did research, and the other two grants were for study on recent developments in chemistry. Hints From Heloise Bathes Her Baby In Clothes Basket Helois* By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Please do not laugh! I think my suggestion is wonderful for mothers who have small babies past the bathinette stage, but too young for a tub bath. I use my plastic clothes basket to bathe my baby in when I take my bath in the tub. This basket has holes in it so the water can come in. When I drawv my tub and take my own bath I put the clothes basket in t h e tub of water with me. Then I undress my baby put him in the clothes basket and ge t into the tub. This way I have the pleasure of teaching him to pat the water like mother does, and to bathe himself, show him how to take the wash rag to soap his tummy, and get him over his fear of water. The water swishes through the basket and he absolutely loves it. When the bath is over all I do is pull the plug. Beby stays in his own precious domain while I dry and clothe myself. There is no chance of baby falling on the slippery tub or being in too much water, which might scare him. Momie Dear Heloise: I am sure there thousands of people who buy frozen waffles. Instead of popping them in your toaster like the directions say. . . I put mine under the broiler in my oven to toast them. This way I find that I can brown one side, turn them over, apply butter and broil the other side. Then top them with syrup or variations of jelly and jams. This makes an entirely different kind of waffle. Mary Hillary Thanks Mary. I tried it and you are so right! Did you ever try buying dried apricots, adding a few slices of lemon and some sugar, and bringing them to a boil, and cooking slowly until they are thick? We found this was terrific when spread on the second cooked side of waffles. It makes a much meatier dish. Heloise Dear Folks: Once in a while we get a letter that seems so funny but it is so good that we just have to print it. Here is one from a mother who has three small children: "Dear Heloise: Having three small children, a two-story house with the bedrooms upstairs and heaps of laundry, I got to thinking of how many times a day I go up and downstairs. Upstairs to get the kids dressed, upstairs to collect their dirty clothes, downstairs, to wash the clothes, upstairs to put them away, downstairs to get the dirty kids to change their dirty clothes upstairs! Honestly. . . I got so sick and tired of all this mountain climbing! In a moment of inspiration, I decided to keep all The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned iq by a reader.

This chest passed for a sideboard in our dining room and was very inexpensive since I assembled and finished it myself.
