Phillips St. Set A Pretty Table For Pretty Manners Phone 305 ALGONA GREENHOUSES E LECTRONIC DRY CLEANING (With Formula 886) INSURES CLEANLINESS AND SAFETY beyond the nope of human skill t Exclusively At ELK CLEANERS ALGONA If you re trying to teach your youngster pretty table manners, set a pretty table! For how can Junior learn proper manners if the table setting is helter-skelter, and half the essential "tools" are missing? With all the new and inexpensive items available, you can arrange even his simple everyday lunch in an attractive "company" setting — with no additional effort or upkeep required. The new plastic tablecloths and plastic place mats make a pretty background, and come clean with the wipe of a sudsy sponge; or a well- sudsed soft brush may be used if the surface is textured Plastic dinnerware is another smart table topic. Recently improved functionally as well as style-wise, it's more resistant to food and acid stains, resists scratches, won't chip, and can be washed safely in the hot, hot soapsuds required to keep dishes sanitary. And don't overlook the virtues ol stainless steel flatware that needs only simple sudsing, never polishing. Remember, toy, that "linen" napkins are one of the little luxuries of a well-mannered'table. They don't even have to be real linen; there are many fabrics that suds in a second and smooth out with the quick Mick of an iron. So set a pretty table, promote good manners, and save time, tool Prize Winning Recipes LEMON — LIME SUPREME By Mrs Henry C.
