Sooner or later, the teacher begins to register and they do pay more than lip service to good nutrition. .That's the time to en To Club courage a dinner menu planned, shopped for and partly cooked by tho future homemaker. In many homes like ours, the children are taught to set the table eRfly in the game. But family dinner service is not always as dressy as the textbooks would have' it.

If. mother can'sew; it doesn't follow that daughter will inherit the talent. But if you are so gifted, a gooi way ;of interesting a diffideni daughter in the exciting e.xperi ence of sewing is to plan a mother-and-daughter sewing project. Jessie ..Hutton, educational director! for a sewing machine company, tells me that such projects can' be rewarding and build enthusiasm for future work with dresses for their wardrobes, but horn e furnishings projects are also successful, Jessie snys. As one example, she cites a homemaker who mnde beautiful Iraperies for her dining room and supervised her' 'daughter's sewing of a complementary round nblecloth, banded in the accent colors of the curtains. In this colonial dining room, he • crisp • glosheen curtains, pat- :erned with colonial antiques, were of soft beige and rich brown with accents of bright aqua and coral, • The easy-to-mnke circular tablecloth, stitched up by the daughter,' is of the soft beige shade in the same fabric.

Wayne Phillips and J, T, Lamberson, RUTHMILLETT Just came across a test that is supposed to show the reader whether or not he has a sense o humor. I didn't bother taking i and I doubt that many reader will, for the simple reason tha everyone is sure that HE has a sense of humor. The other quality we all are sure ,ve' possess is good last*. All the time you hear people low- •ating themselves for lacking his skill or that talent or quality. We will admit to not being able o draw a straight line, to being n pqor story teller, to behing shy, to jeing scared to death to make a speech — and so on. All those Imitations we can recognize in ourselves — and feel no shame at admitting them to others. But did you ever hear anyone say, "You know, I am completely lacking in a sense of humor"? I'll bet you never havo — just ns you have probably never heard anyone say "I simply have no taste," And yet there nre plenty of people who lack one or the other of those qualities. Think of nil t h e dull people who never make a funny remark, never see the funny side of a situation, never are able to laugh at themselves, Yel all these humorless people are election of their wives and hu$- ands. Before a marriage was olemn.ired, the bride's parents iad assured themselves of the ridegroom's character, his finan* cial ability to maintain a wife and children The bridegroom's parents had assured themselves of the girl's wifely qualifications. As well as possible the future of the homa about to be made had been pro* tected by adults who understood the problems of maintaining one. Under those circumstances, th« bride's parents naturally expressed their content with its promising beginning by releasing money for weddng feasts and other cele* brations. But in America young people, feel entitled to marry without in*' terest In our approval. Parent* concerned with the financial stability of the home about to be mado nre comic figures to them. So wo do not always feel.content to spend money for big wedding festivities. Under such situations, I do not think that the money should b« released. Big, begrudged wedding celebrations arts cruel to everyone involved. Have you ever attended a wedding that wasn't wanted? It's pain* ful. There's the church canopy^ the white ribbons, the organ muC sic, the flowers — but the faces" of the young people's parents re-' turning c'own the aisle are cold, as stone or ,flushed with strdUC There are confetti and congratu-; lations - but in the church lobby- he families of the bride and groom do not greet each other. Getting married without parental goj',1 will is a lonely and difficult enterprise for young peoplo. Their insistence on making it into a big production is a, folly that kindness to them will not indulge. I hope your sister stands firm on her refusal. convinced they do,have «, sense o humor. And, think of all the people who spend good money for things that •arc in atrocious tnste ; — who love the ugly rather Ihhn 1 . the'beautiful, who Was given a choice between something beautiful in its simplicity or something gunked up until it is an eyesore will choose the fnncied-up thing every time. Still these people never question their own taste. They KNOW their taste is good. But maybe that's all right. With all tho doubts we have about ourselves mnybe it is a good thing that we all KNOW we have two things — good taste and a sense of humor. Open 6:45 • Now Sat. OUTDOOR AS YOU UKK IT!
