ESTHERVILLK DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 19, 1972 Page 2 1972 - This Is a Chinese Motif Year By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer In China 1972 will be the year of the Rat, but in the United States it will be, no doubt, the year of the Chinese Look in Mr. and Mrs. George Clymer Mr. and Mrs. George Clymer, Estherville, were honored at a surprise party for their silver wedding anniversary at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Terry Hash Saturday evening. The party was planned by their children, Mrs. KathyHena- man, Estherville; Mrs. Vivian Ellis, Davenport and Debbie and Gary at home. Also assisting with the party plans were Mrs. Terry Hash, Mrs. Rex Anderson, Mrs. Don Woodyard, Jr., Estherville and Mrs. Richard Christensen, Olivia, Minn. Guests attended from Des Moines, Davenport, Pomeroy, Terril, Graettinger, Gruver, Estherville and Olivia, Minn. Personal Mention fashion, home furnishings, entertainment. Interest in the theme is high and should accelerate with President Nixon's trip to China. The Chinese influence is just in time for the winter social season. Oriental fashions include everything from the authentic Chinese work suit to elegant Mandarin jackets that will no doubt be worn by hostesses as they serve lichee nuts at the buffet. One of the "in" things to provide extra seating will be platforms. In China one of the earliest uses of platforms was incorporating them intolhe structure of the house to run from wall to wall. These were heated below and provided a place to recline. The idea of a platform evolved into the couch as we know it with arms and backrest. But back to the American pagoda-pad. This easy inexpensive way to provide seating should have big appeal for young married people who haven't yet completely furnished their homes. The home handyman version begins with a box frame — some designers use plywood. Or, one can use wood or plastic cubes as a base for the fabric cover. Many designers use carpet on the platforms. A well-known designer suggests carpet tiles for amateur workmen. The platforms can be built to accommodate the tiles you plan to use and no cutting will be involved. A new snip and stick carpet may provide the exact size. One designer covers the platforms with foam and uses ex­ pensive velvet and silks over them. It all depends on the effect one wants to achieve. It even may be a good way to use a fabric that is no longer useful in its present style. All sorts of looks may be achieved with platforms. A long low platform used against the wall with others of different heights on either side of it can replace a sofa. And the three pieces are available for moving about In any fashion you choose. Youth likes low-seating so if platforms are adopted, another level can be evolved with floor cushions. As for decorating the house for parties, one might adopt a Chinese theme on a table cloth by emblazoning it with aset of Chinese characters (strokes that make the Chinese words). Hone has a Chinese friend or knows a Chinese businessman who will cooperate, one might get one's name written in Chinese, and since it will be a matter of a few strokes, no doubt, the large characters might be sewn to the center of a cloth with bias binding or ribbon. Or, one might like to sew small characters around the border of a cloth. If one can't get characters to use as models for the cloth one might think pagoda-type Ts. Two Ts one below the other might produce the desired effect. If paper cloths are to be Attend Golden Anniversary Sunday Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bebemes went to Alexander Sunday to visit with Mr. and Mrs. William Westby, who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Sunday at the Methodist Church at Alexander.

Make the characters with a brush and Indigo ink. Chop sticks might be used on the buffet table with silver flatware kept handy for hungry types who can't cope (Silver chopsticks are being shown in gifts shops.) For table lighting, a row of jade colored tapers placed in large red apples could be charming. One great thing about Chinese decorating may be the probability of the return of big Oriental lanterns to the party scene. But one can find strings of little lantern lights that might be placed around the buffet skirt.
