i JQ Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111, Thursday, Sept. 26, 1963 fJlme for a foraCk ange ; By VIVIAN BROWN ; Fall is home decorating time. Major organizations of interior •design fields conduct busy home clinics, forums, shows throughout •the country to teach women the way of home fashion. ' Scope of interior design interest grows, and 30 states now designate a National Interior Design' ; Month. ; There are more than 25,000 .'practicing interior designers in 'the United States, points out the 'chairman of the event, Tim Gray, 'of the National Society of Interior Designers. It is estimated that more than 27 billion dollars Is 'spent annually on home furnishings. One billion of it is spent by interior designers in behalf of J their clients. Big, Little Jobs Their range of professional activities vary from providing slip-covers in a home to doing complete homes, ships, airplanes, offices, and even representing clients at auctions. '. Some designers are consulted !on matters of table settings, art .acquisitions, party arrangements, • and in the purchase of linens and < garden furniture. Some even serve as fashion consultants. .' One reason for the rise of the '.interior designer in recent years ; may be public awareness that the average home designer does not . charge a fee, but relies on com ', missions made by buying furnish ings at wholesale prices and charging the client retail prices. « Some interior designers will fur , nish floor plan, color scheme and ; ideas for as little as $25. The • consultation often results in a sav­ ing of more than that amount, points out one interior designer, Check Up First Sometimes there is disappointment in a designer's work. "Anyone employing an interior designer should become thoroughly acquainted with his abilities. The qualifications of professionals can be checked," says Arturo Pini di San Miniato. He is newly elected president of the National Society of Interior Designers. Some homemakers rely upon recommendations of friends, others seek out established names in their community, and in some communities interior designers have become status symbols. But no one need feel underprivileged if he can't afford to hire an interior designer. Trends and ideas in newspapers and magazines can be followed. Many shows with room settings help neophytes in their selection of color schemes and furnishings. Typical is the fall Decoration and Design show of the American Institute of Interior Designers, and large room settings in department stores.

The charm and warmth of old-fashioned farmhouse furnishings (or, call it the Early American if you wish) has been making a steady rise towards the top in popularity. And no wonder — for furniture in this style offers simplicity, durability, and it's comfortable to live with. Country look furnishings are colorful, happy and help to create a feeling of family closeness within the home. Maple, of course, is the beginning of the look — with furniture pieces fashioned along the lines of old-time harvest tables, dea- and spindle beds Decorating in furnishings from the colonial era opens the door to braid rugs, copper decorator pieces, patchwork bedspreads and draperies, and much, much more. The Country Look is not confined to Early American styled homes — it has been used beautifully in homes of every design. It can even be mixed successfully with furniture and furnishings of other periods. Many families devote at least one room to Early American — completes lumber inspection school in Memphis, Tenn. Mrs. Severns attended St. Mary's Academy at Nauvoo and was graduated from Abingdon High School. Also a graduate of Abingdon High School, her husband is employed at Kendricks Timber Products in Abingdon. Pro Tern Officers Preside Pro tern officers Mrs. James Swank, Mrs. Dorothy Snell, Mrs. Laverne Harwick, Mrs. William Church, Mrs. Zelma O'Malley and Mrs. Ida Kaiser, presided at the meeting of the Women of the Moose Tuesday evening when they met at the lodge. The Oct. 8 meeting will be Christmas in October for Mooseheart and Moosehaven and members are being asked to bring gifts. Reports on the Moose convention held in Peoria was given by Mrs. Al Rennicks, Mrs. Delmar Reed, Mrs. Charles Roelle and Mrs. Ed Church. Mrs. Betty Johnson, Mrs. Carol Tucker and Mrs. Robert Eaves served refreshments. Polly's Pointers By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—This tip saves me a lot of office time. When I have several envelopes to address, I insert the first envelope around the carriage of my typewriter until about three-fourths of an inch of the bottom of the enevelope is still showing at the back. Then I lay another envelope on top of it. Roll the first envelope up to where you start addressing and the second one rolls up under it. When three-fourths of an inch of the second one shows, lay the third on top and so on. When you finish the address of the first one and roll it out, the second is right there. It saves rolling each one separately and lifting the bar each time to straighten the envelope. — MISS J.L. DEAR POLLY — To prevent the aggravating sound of banging Venetian blinds, simply tack a loop of heavy-duty elastic to the inside of the window sill about three inches from each side of the frame. Pass the loops over the bottom slat of the blind. Just push the bands off the slat when the blind is to be raised.-MRS. R.G. DEAR POLLY — At one time, our children always got restless on motor trips. The usual games, snacks and so on had become old stuff until we hit on this procedure: I take along something to amuse them for the first part of the trip, and also store away in the car an EMPTY soft drink bottle for each member of the family. We never start out with a full tank of gas, so when the children start to get restless we stop at a filling station. First, a quick trip to the restrooms and then I start off with the children for a brisk walk, staying along the route we travel. My husband talks to the attendant about roads and routes usually the kitchen or den — be* cause, its charm is irresistible! Through the years, the popularity of home furnishings from other periods (French Provincial, Victorian, etc.) has continually gone up and down. But Early American has been a constant favorite. In the past few years, however, this style of furnishings has been gaining more and more admirers. And this fall, with so much emphasis on the Country Look throughout the field of fashion, Early American is destined to hit the top.
