But the Jersey story takes on new aspects when orlon Is added, thus producing a fabric that cannot sag or stretch. It Is a fabric, further, that needs very little Ironing and is washable with ordinary care. Where there are pleats, they stny In. Hemlines will" not become uneven; cuffs and necklines keep their smooth fit. Such fashions are of special interest to the college girl and to her career - girl counterpart. Neither have unlimited funds for clothes nor for the upkeep ol their wardrobes. Anything that fabric and fashion people can do to give them clothes that are fashion-right and practical, too, is In the nature of a real service. The popular middy <left) Is in a soft Jersey that's orlon-nnd-ivool. Sleeves are three-quarter length. There's a high, round neck to be used as a jewelry foil. The hlpline i Is finished with a'snug cuff, just! above the permanently pleated skirt. I The same fabric Is used (right) | for a dress with wide-ribbed band at the waist. Cuffs are ribbed, too, and skirt has permanent pleats. Coming Events Wednesday Club Eight has meeting with Mrs. Charles Langston.

Busiest Homes Are Usually the Happiest Homes Happy homes aren't as a general rule, homes where nothing new ever happens. ( The happiest homes are those where there Is usually some activity going on. Each activity doesn't have '.o Include the whole family, of course. Susie may be busy mounting butterflies; Jun_ lor b u 11 d 1 n g a Ruth Milieu model plane; Pop busy in the workshop and Mom digging In the flower garden. The Important thing Is that everybody has something to do and nobody Is ready to start an argument just to break the monotony. Members of a family aren't always trying to get away from home if there arc enough things around the house to do to keep them interested nnd make time fly. That Is a fact of home life that a great many otherwise good homemakers completely overlook. They are more Interested In how their houses look to outsiders than In what they offer the family In the way ol hobby, work and relaxation. A Workshop can contribute as much to a family's enjoyment of life as the most perfectly furnished living room. So can out-of-door bar- becue.pit, a flower garden, and a place .where any member of the family who wants to concentrate for a_ while can find some peace and quiet to work undisturbed.
