SIMPLE HOME TESTS MAY BE USED TO IDENTIFY FABRICS New weaves and mixtures q; libers often complicate the problem of shopping for clothes. Many of the new fabrics baffle the shopper who wants to know what li- bers, and what proportion of each, they contain. According to Miss Helen Shelby, clothing specialist for the University of Maryland Extension Service, the best aid to identifying fabrics Is a label that gives clear and complete Information. Lacking labels, shoppers may use a few simple tests at home which Will help them to know what they are buying. t The burning test is one way of telling whether material is pure- dye silk, weighted silk, or synthetic like rayon. Fray both lengthwise and crosswise threads in a sample of the goods and apply a lighted match. Pure-dye silk burns with an odor of burning hair and forms tiny black balls. Silk heav- ily weighted with metal leaves a black, crisp skeleton of the weave rather than black balls. Synthetics appear to melt as they burn, give off a slight pungent odor, and leav a hard, glassy-looking ash. The lye test helps distinguish between animal and vegetable fibers and is useful in finding how much silk or wool out just a fabric contains. Boll the sample of the goods for ten minutes in a mixture of one pint of water and one tablespoonful of lye. After this boiling, all the silk or wool will have disappeared, leaving any cotton; linen or synthetic that the fabric may have contained. Miss Shelby warns that the user of lye should be extremely careful in handling the material as it will burn, the skin. To learn whether a synthetic is in acetate rayon . or contains any acetate, drop the sample into ace,one or fingernail polish remover, which will dissolve all acetate. Strt« Addr«K Cltj Stylo be turned over to the non-political non-partisan board of men, well known throughout the country, to form a fund to combat infantile paralysis wherever and whenever an epidemic breaks out, to maintain research activities in the disease, and to give funds to institutions where infantile paralysis is treated. This plan has been indorsed by leading physicians and doctors throughout the United States. MARRIAGE LICENSES Wilbur C, Feaster, 34, Hagerstown, Margaret N. Boerner, 28, Waynesboro. Howard T.

MONTGOMERY WARD BEDROOM LIGHTING Have your dressing tables adequately mirrored and well lighted. Don't put a dinky little mirror on a dressing table just because you have it or because it is "attractive." And don't use too small or too short lamps on the dressing table. Instead use a mirror o£ adequate size, and have the light preferably above the mirror and directed down on the user. If you are building a house try to persuade the architect to design the bedrooms so that the beds will not have to be placed where they face the glaring morning light. I say "try to persuade" advisedly, for I've known very few architects who consider this important detail —by being persuaded, cajoled or threatened.
