The rugs, bedspread and other items are predominantly lavender. In addition, sunlight filtering through lavender drapes gives one the feeling of floating on a cloud of lavender. The bedroom furniture is of dark wood "antiqued" w i th touches of ebony. Bedrooms of the two Holt children would delight the heart of any youngster. The girls room contains furniture of pink and white enamel, and pink spreads adorn matching maple beds. The boy's room features two bureaus and a bookcase of turquoise enamel. A focal center of the room is a large, handy toy bo.\ made by his grandfather. LLY'S POINTERS By Polly Cramer DEAR POLLY — When you tire of a plastic, flannel-backed tablecloth, cut it in half through tlie width and sew each piece to make excellent liners for shopping carts and also are goin^ for carrying the laundry to and from Uie washing machine. They are easy to keep clean. I use them in both these ways and am often stopped and asked where they can be bought. — ESTHER DEAR POLLY — You once wrote tliat the simplest tiling a woman does to make a job easier may not have occuiTed to another woman. That encouraged me to send this. To keep my hair out of the way when I wash my face, I put on a shower cap. Before starting to do tliis, 1 often passed up my daUy complexion care routine because I did not want to take up the time to go back to tlie bedroom and look for pins, clips, ribbons or a scarf to keep the edges of my hair from getting wet.— JOYCE How right you arc, Joyce. What is old hat to one of us may be brand new to someone else.—POLLY DEAR POLLY — I buy desk blotters from an office supply store to cover the carpet on my guest closet floor. It is next to the front door and when guests arrive in bad weather the boots can be placed in the closet with no fear of soiling the carpet. The blotters absorb the water or melted snow and catch any loose dirt. If any dirt remains on them when the blotters are dry they can be vacuumed or the dirt poured off. I used green ones on my green carpet and guests do not realize that I have the carpet covered. Blotters are available in a variety of colors and need to be replaced only once or twice during a season. — MRS. B. G. F. DEAR POLLY - My husband: and 1 are both advocates of well - groomed nails. A re! minder is to hang a metal nail I file on a bead chain next to the bathroom hand towels. Nails are ; easier to clean while the hands '.are still moist. We also fintli that daily filmg frees nails of small snags and seems to; toughen them. Clean, healtliy nails are an asset to anyone. - MRS. D. H. S. GIRLS — This idea should be a reminder and incentive to the children who have to be reminded constantly to clean their nails. — POLLY DEAR POLLY — If you don't have a doughnut cutter, cut out the doughnuts with a regular biscuit cutter or small juice glass and then use a large thimble to cut out the center. DEAR POLLY — My Pointer will save most women some embarrassment. Many women's dresses have long loops of tape to keep them from slipping from coat hangers. Consequently, when wearing a sleeveless or short sleeved dress, these tapes may show around the neckline or armholes. I sew a hook somewhere in the lining of the dress or in a seam. When the dress is put on. I anchor the loops of take to the hook. In this way I am sure the wiU not show ami I still have the tape to help hold the dress on its hanger.— HELEN- DEAR POLLY — I do a lot of sewing and often buy many yards of one cotton print. After finishing the first batch of sewing. I wind a slrip of the fabric around the spool of thread that was bought for that particular fabric. When doing future sewing with the same material. I am saved the trouble or re- matching thread and fabric— FAY DEAR POLLY — Children often gel chalk dust all over their hands and clothes when they write on their blackboards and slates. I found that inserting a piece of chalk into a small plastic cigar holder is just the thing for keeping little fingers clean.—NORMA Cridelich Plumbing TO SERVE YOU DAY AND NIGHT Phone PY 2-1592 CARPETS 126S-C BROOKSIDE AVE.

Redlands unless it has ample facilities for typical Southern i California outdoor living. By that token, t h e house of llMr. and Mrs. Robert E. Holt at ;1009 Fuibright avenue certainly j qualifies as a home. A covered patio and a semi- enclosed children's play area have turned an ordinary back yard into a perfect stage for everything from large parties to an outdoor barbecue for the fam- ,iiy. I The back yard features tw^o sections of curved fence which : effectively separate the roughly used play area from the im- l maculate lawn. Strategically ; placed trees and flowerbeds j provide delightful accents. ; What might have been an un- I sightly problem, a high, steep 'bank at the rear of the property, lias been turned into a distinct asset by covering it thickly with ice plant. Inside, the house has several ; other distinctive features. I Beginning in the living room. the fireplace is the first eye- catcher. Above the fireplace, the wall slants out from the ceilin.? down to the top of the fire box to give a hooded effect. The: "hood" extends from the fire -i place all the way over to thC; adjoining wall on the right. Mrs. Holt has decorated the wide e.xpanse of sloping area in elegant simplicity with a single large carving of a knight on a, horse. Simplicity is the theme in the rest of the living room. Three stylized carved ducks with burnished brass wings soar across another wall. i The dining area, which is' separated from the kitchen by! a breakfast counter and a row^ of cabinets suspended from the! ceiling, is decorated with blond oak furniture with a tiny touch of oriental flavor. This is ac­ cented with wallpaper of an ori ental design. The blond furniture is practical as well as attractive. Mrs. Holt explains, "When we got this we were moving around quite a bit and we thought it wouldn't show the bumps and scratches as much." The furniture in the dining room, as w^ell as the rest of the house, is well set off with beige carpeting from Turner's Carpets. In the master bedroom, reached from a hall that opens off the living room, the Holts have managed to decorate the air as well as the rest of the We Specialize in BLOCK WALLS and PATIOS CENTURY MASONRY PHONE 797-9069 Beniamin Moored REDLANDS PAINT Quality Paints for over 80 years SOLD BY _ LUTHER & ROGER HOLDEN We Give S. & H.
