Hazards Listed Of Poisonings In Holiday Plants The Food and Drug Administration warns gardeners and householders against the unlabeled hazards of potential poisoning from common decorative plants or their seeds. These include varieties such as the castor bean, the jequirity bean, also known as the rosary pea, which can be fatal if chewed and swallowed. Some other plants also are toxic when ingested. For example: One poinsettia leaf can kill a child; mistletoe has been known to be fatal to both children and adults; — daffodil, hyacinth, and narcissus bulbs cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and may be fatal. The FDA recommends that gardeners and homeowners make a careful appraisal of the poison potential of their favorite decorative plants in and around the home, especially if the highly toxic jequirity or castor beans are used for planting. They should be sowed only in areas not accessible to children. Colors, Fabrics To Dress Up Holiday Child The holiday child will be the traditional dressed-up child, with news and excitement in colors, fabrics, patterns and looks. Colors — very fresh and clean-looking with the classic red, navy and white. Other popular colors will be purple, hot pink, lemon yellow, peach, sea and royal blue. Fabrics — the velvets are back, both plain and crushed. Knits are the strongest fabric, both bonded and plain, laces, voile, polyester wovens, with a satin finish, and cotton suedes are popular. Patterns — pin stripes and bold stripes are strong, as are the "native" patterns, Scandinavian and Oriental. Many of the voiles have a burn-out pattern. There are lots of embroideries. Silhouettes — Many dresses have a midriff with either lacing or smocking at the waist. There's a definite two-piece look of dresses with a vest. The peasant dress (often midi length) and the peplum are another holiday look. Pantsnits and jump- suits are favorites and the "pioneer girl" lias carved herself a niche. Hobby Model Kits Made For All Ages Shopping for hobby model kits today is a revelation. Where emphasis used to be on planes, cars and boats for boys in an age range from 8 to 14, kits arc now being made for every age group and for both sexes — even for the preschooler whose developing coordination sometimes makes him appear to be all thumbs. The unique array of colorful hobby kits to be seen in stores this year start with the cement- k'.ss and pre-paintcd snap-together cartoon-type models. From there they jump into the class of highly-detailed automotive miniatures and even cater to the bpaceminded who critically examine every engineering aspect of lunar cra'tt replicas. \\Jiy are model hobby kits so ap|>calinj>?
