6 (iajesburg Register-Mail,Jjglesburg, 1 uesdgy, Sept, 11), IV63 and ^adlt News for and About Women WkatP, ion KVleand to IJc By JOY MILLER What impact are the fall Paris fashions likely to have upon the housewife in Chattanooga, the school girl in Pocatello, the librarian in Cedar Rapids? At first glance the only logical answer seem to be: Well, practically none at all. The fact that Dior bared the bosom quite immodestly, that Balmain used fur like wool to whip up broadtail and ermine dresses, that just about every couturier showed boots at least to midcalf, probably won't cause as much of a ripple in the life of the average American homemaker as if the station wagon had broken down. Of course the hemline is something else. Ever since 1947 when Christian Dior dramatically dropped skirts to 12 inches from the floor and made us like it—or at least conform—U.S.- women have eyed Paris fashion showings with apprehension. To many busy women in this country, adjusting a hemline is the only concession ovemor ^9d Cjuedl ^JJt onor Mrs. Loretta Eller, Bcttendorf, Iowa, Lt.

This summer Jacques Helm made a valiant effort to lengthen skirts by four inches but wiser heads prevailed and other designers stayed with the prevailing length in the vicinity of the knee. Take a second glance at Paris fashions and you'll see all the American buyers sitting in the little gold chairs in posh showrooms, watching with narrowed eyes as the models glide by and thinking elevating thoughts such as "American women will go for that one if we raise that neckline and maybe loosen the skirt . . ."

C^oliector'd ^Qt em • • by Marion Maxwell When a person uses the term "Wedgwood," he is usually referring to jasper, a hard unglazed stoneware which resembles biscuit porcelain, one of the many products of the early English potter Josiah Wedgwood, the man who put English pottery on a commercial basis. Wedgwood's first triumph in the potting field was his "Queen's ware,"- a well- _______ glazed cream-colored ware, potted with great precision. He imitated with some skill the early red ware of the Elers and also perfected a hard black body known as Egyptian basalt which he used mostly for decorative pieces in Roman style. Jasper, like the sage green creamer and sugar on the right, a set given as a wedding gift in 1907, has been extensively imitated. The Wedgwoods themselves, today one of the largest English pottery firms, have made jasper almost continuously since its introduction. The feature which made Wedgwood's jasper unique was its intricate moulding. He was very proud of it and employed the best artists of the time, including the noted sculptor, Flaxman. Cast in Mould The ware was cast in a mould and, of necessity, the mould had to be such that the ware could be "drawn off" without damaging it. In intricate moulds such as Wedgwood used in the classical style which was popular in Europe at the time, drawing off the cast without catastrophe was very difficult. It is only old jasper -- that made before 1800 — which is ,>f great value and items of which are considered museum pieces. On the best jasper in this early period Wedgwood had the cast, after firing 1 , polished up by lapidaries (cutters and engravers of precious stones) who sharpened Oil pick off the rack a dress that's been adapted or interpreted from some top couturier's design purchased at top prices by an American buyer in Paris.

This winter if you look bundled up, you're in style. There's no excuse for pneumonia, what with hoods and stoles and collars of nose-tickling height; boots that encase the leg up to the knee (great for rattler country), and turtle necks even on evening dresses. Sleeves are mostly long and lean, with no more of those paradoxical sleeveless wool dresses. The over-all silhouette remains about the same: slim and relaxed. But here and there in the Paris shows body shaping was in evidence, perhaps presaging the gradual swing of the fashion pendulum back to the fitted look. Sportive styles, things like black leather knickers with black socks or mink sweaters with Robin Hood hats and seven-league boots bore the stamp of the designer's indi- (Continued on page 7) New Residents MRS.

Wedgwood introduced the custom of marking pottery and all his pieces bear a mark although later pieces such as those shown are marked numerically, only. From 1768 to 1780 he was in partnership with Thomas Bentley, a Liverpool merchant and the mark was Wedgwood and Bentley. After Bentley's death in 1780 the mark is Wedgwood, only, impressed into the paste.

DEAR POLLY —I do want to thank the reader who suggested nylon net for a dishcloth. I use it also for pots and pans. I discovered another use that I want to pass on. I found it is the best thing ever for cleaning the silks from fresh corn, much better than a brush. And it is wonderful for scrubbing vegetables such as carrots and potatoes.— MRS. F. B. DEAR POLLY-I took two bath towels of the same color, sewed them together and then sewed bias tape at each corner to make a wonderful cover for the bottom of my baby's playpen. I like it much better than placing him directly on the plastic pad. I made two of these. When one gets dirty, I have another ready.— MRS. J. C. DEAR POLLY—I received two pretty plants as gifts and just did not have any place to put them. I took two straw hats that my girls had outgrown, turned them upside down, set a potted plant in each, attached gold ropes and hung them in my patio. They look just like straw baskets.— J. O. DEAR POLLY — Recently you had a pointer for making a fitted sheet from a straight sheet by tying a knot in each corner of the sheet. I tried this, but objected to the bulky knots. I solved it in my own way by pulling each pointed corner of the sheet through one-inch plastic cafe curtain ring and pulling the sheet through the ring until it was at the bottom corner of the mattress. To undo, just slide the ring back off. I found this to be faster and a lot easier than tying and untying the knot. It also works on the bottom corners of the top sheet—MRS. M. B. GIRLS— All you clever readers need is a start, and up you come with bigger and better things.— POLLY. DEAR POLLY—Do not throw away that old garden hose. Here are some ways to put it to good use: Lengths of it may be cut and tied together to make an excellent kneeling pad for outdoor gardening. Cut sections from old hose to make emergency washers. Punch holes in the old hose, plug the open end with a cork or short dowel and use as a yard sprinkler. Packing cardboard cartons goes faster if flaps are held open by small sections of hose split apart, and put along one edge to form rubber clamps. Saves your temper as well as your time.—MRS. E.W.

Cjiven ^or After a picnic supper at Lincoln Park the chapter business meeting of the Galesburg Branch of the American Association of University Women was conducted by Miss Lucille Rocklus, president, who introduced the delegates to the national convention in Denver this summer. Reporting to the group were Mrs. Ray Enlow and Miss Deborah Wing. Miss Wing spoke of the outstanding speakers at the convention, naming John D. Rockefeller III, board chairman of the Population Council, whose topic was "Population: Decision by Default." He stated that the tre. mendous increase of four billion people in the last 15 years was more serious than even the danger of nuclear power. His concern was for the quality of life that people will have and said that only a government had the kind of organization that can communicate the necessary information for smaller families. Dr. Harrison Brown, NAS Space Science Board member, was concerned with the ethical and moral aspects of the rapid rate increase in science development. Miss King then told of Dr. D. Meredith Wilson, president of University of Minnesota and his challenge to the group to help meet the needs of the increased student enrollment in educational areas. Reviews Business Mrs. Enlow reviewed the business of the convention for the group. On the statistical side there were 2150 delegates with 786 branches represented. She said that under the new structural change that there are four areas which the organization will be stressing—community problems, educational problems, cultural problems and world problems. Guests at the meeting were Mrs. Orville Dickhaut and Mrs. Irene Seaman of Knoxville. The social committee under the director of Miss Gertrude Hopps included Mrs. Bernadine Douglass, Mrs. Helen McElhinney and Mrs. Clifton Bell.
