WEDNESDAY, OCT. 4,1939. THE DAILY NEWS-LUDINGTON. MICHIGAN. PAGE FTVF Well Furnished Dining Room Will Help HubbyJYh^^ Beautiful Wood Means Handsome Furniture Better Sur- Food Always Tastesi if Served in Proper roundings Are you helping your husband in his career? If you are, it probably means you are entertaining his business guests at dinner. And if you have invested in expertly styled dining room furniture with the proper accessories in linen, chhia, and silver, you are no doubt enjoying good returns on your money. Food, no matter how well you cook it, hasn't its maximum appeal unless it is attractively served in charming surroundings. So perhaps, during National Furniture Week, you might give yourj dining room a little extra thought. Tradition Reigns Here Traditional elegance and traditional period designs are strongly entrenched in the formal dining room. Any woman who has fine crystal and silver handed down from past generations naturally wants to show it off tu best advantage on rich damasks covering authentically reproduced period pieces. With our living pace set faster, •we have less lime for meals than' in the old days. And withj America moving to smaller' quarters—apartments and small 1 houses being the vogue—the for- i mal dining room is making its' last stand. But in no other room in the house are the old traditions of gracious hospitality so strongly rcflcted. I So if you have the space and i the accessories, by all means- have the period dining room furniture that shows them to the best advantage. i Junior Sets Are Smart ' For the smaller dining room, the junior dining room sets are new and .smart.

But with fall and winter temperatures in most homes hovering near 75 degrees, it is apparent that .summer-time methods in handling foods must be utilized in cold as well as in hot weather. In the summer, no modern women would attempt to keep foods fresh without the help of a good refrigerator. She know- it is highly essential to give food this protection. But some homemakers do not understand that Colonial Pieces to Dining Room Good Colonial pieces adapt themselves graciously to any size and type of dining room, whether it Ls a spacious house or small apartment. The old-fashioned huntboard. used when Colonial hunt breakfasts were served to guests standing (since fashionable tight breeches made sitting uncomfortable!) is used today in Early American dining room groupings as a sideboard. And if a dining room is limited for storage space, nothing could be more charming than a pair of corner cupboards. . 30 MATERIALS NOW USED FOR BATHROOM WALLS Safe Temperatures Limited As everyone knows, there arc malty- stages oT culUT ttlitf* foods keep safely only within a very limited range of cold temperatures. Any temperature above I 50 degrees is unsafe because of rapid bacterial growth and consequent food spoilage.
