Well, I have never seen sor-. tier flowers in all my life! It is getting to be an annual joke around here. They aren't even worth putting into a vase. I just open the box, carry right out to the trash. Then I sit down and write a thank you note for the "beautiful" flowers. I told my husband this year I think we should tell his boss what kind of flowers he has been paying for. My husband says we should be quiet. What do you say? MRS. M.J.L. DEAR MRS.

Well, here's a wonderful suggestion of) how In get everyone in the family wrapped up in Christmas and holiday decorating and to give the kids a glimpse of bow much fun it used to be—and still can be. Make your OWN decorations. This basic dough will help yon work wonders on centerpieces, candle holders, free trimmings, wreaths, even gifls. All you need (plus some imagination) is: 4 cups flour 1 cup high-quality table salt IVj cups water Mix the ingredients (do not double or halve) well with fingers, adding more woter if too stiff. Now put everybody to work forming original sculptures. For assistance you might try cookie cullers, knife, fork, spoon, rolling pin, toothpick or what have you. Form larger pieces around wire skeletons or other supports. Paper clips or hair pins make excellent hangers. Bake the finished work for at least one hour at 350' (test for doneness wilh a toothpick). After allowing time for cooling, es'cryonc can pilch in agnin on the decorating. Use water colors, poster paints, food coloring or felt tip pens, with finishing touches fashioned from small Irtiits, nuts, berries, candles, buttons, glitter, yarn, ribbon or bits of fell.

Keeping Up Surveys of women's clubs point up that keeping up with the Joneses is cpnsidered more important than 10 years ago. While those in the youngest group questioned felt il was important for their husband's sake the middle group thought it important for the children's sake. In the 45 and over group most said it didn't matter, perhaps because they were the Joneses, It makes for a very pretty closet that you are' proud for any guest to see. Mrs. B. R.
