Be modern with MOEN NEW MOEN DIALCET FOR KITCHENS One hondfe dees work of h¥o Sanitary Plumbing Co. 1248 Wabash Ave. 794-2131 10 - Friday, Mar. 6, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts mm POINTERS By Polly Cramer DEAR POLLY — After wiping off my refrigerator and washer, I shine them mth rubbing alcohol. I also use it to shine chrome table legs, mirrors and Jathroora fixtures. Rubbing alcohol will also remove "spit-up" stains from baby's clothing. Pour some on the stain and wash as usual. 1 cut my worn, rag throw rugs into squares a little larger than my hand to use for dusting, floor wa>dng, scouring sink and bathtub and wiping up spilU. They can be laundered and last longer than a sponge.— MRS. B. J. B. GIRLS — I don't have a baby who spits up, but I do have appliances which looked better after an alcohol rub.— POLLY DEAR POLLY — To make simple, inexpensive decorations for your Christmas tree, save the metal strips cut away when coffee and shortening cans are opened with a key. Slowly twist the metal in the opposite direc tion as to unwind, pulling down slightly as you do so. (Be careful not to cut your fingers. Pol ly) Leave the key on to hang it by. You have a silver icicle curl or you spray it another color if you prefer. Spools that adhesive tape comes on may also be dipped or sprayed with paint. The spool and its outside band can either be left together or separated and small decorations glued to the center. A cord for hanging may be attached by closing the band over cord placed across the edge of t h e spool. The spools make nice candle holders, too. Dispensers for plastic gummed tape can be made into sleds to use with reindeers made from pipe clean ers. - MRS. L. B. DEAR POLLY — To keep children's mittens handy, take a length of heavy cord and tie clip clothespins to it, about six or eight inches apart. Make a loop at the top and hang card on a hook. Hang wet mittens on the bottom clips. They dry quickly and a pair may be bung on each clothespin. This has been a blessing for me with three small children who have two or three pairs apiece. To remove chocolate stains from children's clothing, soak the spot thoroughly vntb c 1 u soda BEFORE WASHING an rub as you would any spot. This REALLY works. — MRS. W.: B. GIRLS — It really docs, i triad it on two colors of cotton and also an green corduroy. Spots came out and tiie colors were net affected — but be safe and always test first. —POLLY GOOD TIME Winter is a good time to do that indoor remodeling job be cause builders are not rushed can give lower prices on carpcU' try.

(UPI) Any harassed housewife who cries that there just is not I enough time in the day should meet Mrs. Jack Jacobs of this Ismail Long Island suburb of New York. Erma Jacobs ^manages to manage: —One husband, a shoe salesman to whom she's been married for 24 years; —Four foster children who are the daily delight of their foster parents; —A nine room house which, during the seven years they've lUved in it she has decorated all rooms including the children's bedrooms. The day I visited her she was wallpapering the I kitchen. —A collection of 55 costumed dolls she has so masterfully done that some have taken individual prizes in national costumed doll shows. All have been used at numerous exhibits for PTA, for I church or temple, for charities, and most recently were included in a federation of Jewish philanthropies "through the language I of art" exhibition at the IBM Gallery, New York City. —To design and work on a five by six foot tapestry which will tell the story of the 12 dancing princesses; Rugs, Too —Development of a new method for hand-weaving rugs which she hopes to patent and ah -eady has used to make handsome floor coverings for the living room and for her eldest foster child's bedroom-study. Mrs. Jacobs, an attractive brunette who won't tell her age was asked how she found time to pursue so many hobbies as well as run a house. 'You make time by organizing it," she said. "You know," she laughed as she added, "A few years ago I decided I needed to lose a few pounds so I took up ballet for a while." Mrs. Jacobs first came to my I attention through her doU exhibit. The collection, which she's been working on for lo years, IS divided into folk costume, fairy tale and historical dolls. All start with basically the same 10-mch tall doll. She paints on the faces and the costumes are CONCEPT KITCHENS sUtched from the myriad of beads, other jeweling, and scraps of materials which she collects constantly. More than 2.000 sequins went I into the glittering robe of an Indian maharajah. The two-foot long beaded train of her Cleopatra doll took two years to complete. More than 300 tiny pieces of plastic were glued together and glossed for Cleo's elaborate headdress. Wins Prize Her Siamese temple dancer doll encrusted with jewels from I his towering headpiece to his tumed-up shoes won her $1,000 in a national contest. The coat of mail for Julius I Caesar created some problems which she solved by breaking up small gold chains and pasting them on her husband's collar stays, hung vertically. Part of his collar came from the handle of an evening bag. The stiff ] curls for some of her French court group were made by wmd- ling sj-nthetic doll hair around toothpicks. The collection includes other famous figures in history —Na- ipaleon, Henry VIII and his Anne Bolej-n, and one of the pharaohs. She searches museums and libraries to make the costumes as nearly authentic as she can — the pharaoh for in- i stance has tiny cats embroidered on his robe because the Egyptians considered the cat sacred. Many favorably impressed with Fairmount Confine your spraying to minimum PHONE • 793-4394 SALES OFFICE OPEN DAILY 10:30 A.M. 'til DARK Insecticide sprays are non-se lective. They kill all kinds of in sects —the beneficial along with the bad, and we need the good ones. When you are working with msecticides, don't guess about their use. Follow the manufac I turer's directions exactly, and use products only for their expressed purpose. Keep in mind that a very small percentage of the plants which fail do so primarily because of insects and diseases. Possibly as many as ninety-five per cent of those attacked would have remained healthy if good : culture had prevailed. Apparent- ily strong-growing plants produce enzymes which either discourage or conquer pests and diseases in ways not at present [understood. When a plant is weakened from any cause, resistance to infection or infestation decreases. Response to last week's opening of the Iu.\ury Fairmont Estates Homes in the University area of Redlands has been fav- {orablc, based on the heavy homebuyer traffic since opening, according to Alex Graham, Sales Director for the Hillward De- jvelopment Corp., builder-developer. The 77-unit project was built iand developed by the HiUward Development Corp. of Santa Fe Springs. It is one of the fastest homebuilding concerns in Southern California. It can point with pride at more than 30,000 quality residences constructed in many widespread locations of the [southland.
