FLOWER-POT SPRINKLER A new lawn sprinkler which sprays a circular area of 1200 feet is made of gaily colored plastic, in the shape of a flower pot and flower. The spray.-- comes through the tube stem and squirts from the center of the flower. Being all plastic, the sprinkler cannot corrode or rust. MATCH 'EM UP Chinaware and wallpaper are being correlated for modern decorating schemes. Each wallpaper pattern is available in several color combinations with hand- painted matching dinner ware in complimentary color coordina­ tions. Try this technique for ironing rayons. After they are washed, roll them in a turkish towel to remove excess moisture. Then •mooth-out the garments and roll them in a rubber or plastic sheet until you're ready to iron them. Rayons that are dried and then sprinkled are likely to water-spot. Never scrape sticking starch off an electric iron with, a knife or other sharp instrument. Try instead, if the iron is still hot, rubbing the plate back and forth across dry salt that has been spread on a sheet of paper. If the iron has already cooled, remove the encrusted starch with extra fine steel wool or mild scouring powder on a damp cloth, being careful not to scratch the smooth surface. Explorer Comdr. Donald B. Mac- Milian, reports the National Geographic Society, claims that a friend left his pants on the ice off Siberia in 1881 and they were found at Cape Farewell, Greenland, in 1884, indicating the drift of polar ice.

WOMEN TODAY By DOBOFT ROE AssocUted Press Women's Writer THE "SUB", POPULAR TEEN AGE CLUB, TO OPEN AGAIN Thrift note to young lovers: A 15-cent greeting card with just the right touch of sophisticated humor can be more effective than a ?5 box of candy. « « « !i< Working on this principle, Rosalind Welcher, who wields a brush with the smooth sophistication of a dali, has built up a business which sells 7 million cards a year. Her cards, with their whimsical stylized animal sketches and their strictly New Yorker-type humor, have hit an unsuspected jackpot of customers who never used to send greeting cards. They even write fan letters to the young artist, such as this one: "Dear Miss Welcher: I'm a Brooklyn G.L who's deeply in love with a Bronxite. It seems to me that greeting cards dealing with young people in love shouldn't be confined to the Valentine season. Since I've used up all your current numbers, I wonder if you haven't some others that are ready for your new line. Miss Welcher, you have been my most potent silent Ambassador of Love." « * • « A California Scrooge writes that his discovery of the Welcher Christmas cards has restored the joy in Christmas, and a college girl in Ohio writes that a series of Welcher "love" cards won her heart and hand for the m'an whom he loves because of his wonderful sense of humor. * « • * Rosalind and her husband, Fred Slavic, a former machinery designer, have formed their own company, called Panda Prints, Inc., to print and distribute the cards. RUTH MULEH Modem Wife Is a Good Sport In Transplanting Home Roots Mamie Eisenhower, who has been following her huband around the world for 37 years, is reported to have recently remarked that she would like to "unpack her furniture some place and stay forever." That remark will probably be well understood by thousands and thouands of American women. So many women have felt the same longing during the last decade. And yet, like Mamie Eisenhower they've been good sports about packing up and going along with their husbands from army post to army post, or to whatever mdust- rial city offered the best oppor tunity to their men. ^ That's something, in the modern woman's favor that often gets overlooked. Women, as a rule, hate to be up. rooted. They like permanent homes, and with reason, for most of the hardships of moving around from place to place actually fall on the woman. Put Dreams Of Permanence Aside But a whole generation of women have learned to be good sports about putting their dreams of permanence aside to follow their men wherever they have to go: • They've learned that if a woman has the ability to make a home in one place, she can make it in another. So, in a way, they have achlevad thft abUlty te^, homes about with them'tft I packing boxe». But it lsn*t mlly IMitG them. And so while they go'l plainlnc^y with their hu-ihan set up homes In strnngc .( they still carry deep dovm »•«< them the feminine destro tait put. Like Mamie Elsenhower, look forward to the day when' can unpack their fumltur* place and stay forever. V But, also, like Mrs. Ike, they trd good sports about realltlnR vtha^ they are living; In an age when "settling down" often has to ' postponed year after year.
