By POLLY CRAMER • DEAR POLLY—My husband said, "Send these to Polly." While cutting grass on a terrace or slope wear golf shoes. This makes for surefooted cutting and has not hurt our lawn. • In cold weather wear cotton gloves under your rubber work gloves when you wash windows or hang out clothes. • Polish golf irons with silver polish to make them look like new.—L.A.S. Girls — I know you join me in thanking this husband for thinking of us.—POLLY. DEAR POLLY — Here is a sewing tip: When making darts in the waist of a dress, I pin a piece of lightweight cardboard or a long envelope from the top dots to the dot at the end of the dart and machine stitch along the fidge of the cardboard. The cardboard out of a hose box is excellent. This is a fast method and the lines will be straight and will come to a nice point.—Mrs. H.L. DEAR POLLY — Whenever our family makes telephone calls, we put the 10 or 25 cents in a little "kitty" bank that stays near the telephone. Then when the telephone bill comes, we have the money ready.—Miss D.H. GIRLS — This is a different way to budget. It would certainly cut down on the number of calls made by teen-agers, who sometimes spend most of their at-home hours on the telephone. — Polly. DEAR POLLY — I find ironing board clamps useful in reupholstering piano stools, chairs, etc. First, clamp the material in place with the spring-type clamps and hammer in the upholstery tacks. Remove clamps. No more slipping and sliding, no more baggy upholstery. You get a tight, professional look.—A. McG. DEAR POLLY — My daughter in Denver sends me your column, which I enjoy very much. Here is a vacation hint: When a family is going on a vacation trip by car, pack suitcases for the children in layers, a complete change in each layer. Allow two days' | wear for a pair of blue jeans. The clean clothes are never messed over; everything for one change is together. Put all soiled clothes in another suitcase or a laundry bag.—Mrs. M. M. GIRLS — Wc have had several good hints for ways to pack when taking the children on vacation. Take your choice. Anything to make the trip easier for mom! — POLLY. Share your favorite homemaking ideas . . . send them to Polly in care of Galesburg Register-Mail. You'll receive a bright, new silver dollar if Polly uses your ideas in Polly's Pointers.

Not since the days of the velvet hostess gown have women had such opportunity to slink around their living room and play the glamour role. At-h o m e wothes, almost all of them floor length, are so numerous in the fall and winter collections of New York manufacturers that after a while you wonder whether anybody goes out. The at-home clothes are not meant for doing the dishes or wiping off the baby's cereal. They're for the leisure hours — created in fabulous velvets, ^crepes, brocades, metallics and lames. Most are skirted. A few have the divided culotte skirt, and some are skinny trousers, in a few instances done in broadtail fur. All stress luxury, and the designer Fernando Sarmi went so far as to put diamond buttons on some of his leisure wear designs. Sylvia Kaplan, designer at Nat Kaplan favored the covered up look for at-home clothes. White matelasse (one of the crinkly surfaced fabrics abundant in the new collections) was shaped into a princess silhouette ending with a cathedral train. Other at-home costumes were in tinted, pale brocades with uplifted waistline. Donald Brooks for Townley showed a group of one-piece coveralls in white, silver and lime brocade for at-home. Many came with long, sleeveless coats. Anne Klein of Junior Sophisticates dubbed a group of lounge fashions the "kitten's pajamas." These were bell-bottomed pajamas in black crepe with ruffled bottoms and worn with ruffle-trimmed overblouses. i .uiUoi Hattie Carnegi 0 , continuing the name of its late founder, included a group of velvet skirts and jackets for home dressing up.

Simple board • and * brick shelving — taking neither budget nor do-it-yourself talents — which the youngster looks on as a special place for his own books can make the difference between his read' ing those books or ignoring them. That's the advice from an ex* pert on children's books and children's reading habits ~- Ted Winter, president of Childrens Press, publisher of books exclusively for children. Most thoughtful parents early provide books for their youngsters —from the ages of three on up, Winter points out. But too many parents neglect to give their children a place to keep their own books. "Children's books should not be kept on the regular bookshelves," Winter suggests. "In the first place, chances are the small fry can't reach the regular shelves. Then, too," he adds, "children love to consider books as 'their own' and appreciate having their own bookshelves in their own room." It's easy to construct a simple set of shelves. All you have to do is lay boards across double rows of bricks. Or, for a decorative change of pace, substitute outsize children's blocks for the bricks. Build Low Build the shelves low enough for the youngsters to reach them —preferably start from the floor and build up. As your child grows, add a shelf, Winter suggests. Inexpensive pine boards <%'* by 8") can be used. Sand these once with sandpaper or fine steel wool. Add a quick coat of paint and that's all there is to it. Bookshelves in the children's room needn't be fancy, he pointed out. Let the youngster feel that the shelves are to be utilized and aren't just "decorative." The Childrens Press executive adds this final thought: be sure to build the shelves with enough space to take care of the child's present books as well as the additional volumes he's sure to get for his birthday or at Christmas or other special occasions. If there's extra space, a favorite stuffed animal or toy can also be storeel on the shelves. READ THE WANT ADS! FUTURE BRIDES Be sure to see the China and Crystal and register In our "BridaJ Book."
