i urauoise Tcikss That Special Care GALESBURG, ILL., THUR., JUNE 28,1973 Strolling down with ue Avenue By JOAN CROSBY LOS ANGELES (NEA) - It's not lirat Indian Jewelry has taken such a sharp increase in value, says Jon Mandate, who is a co-owner of Hlafct's Indian Crafts In San Juan Capdstrantf, "Indian Jewelry has always been fairly expensive," he says. "But took how prices on everything have increased over the last quarter of a century." True, a.goad Navajo squash blossom necklace made of heavy silver and with some turquoise, cost $50 some 20 years ago. And $50 then would be a lot more in today's devalued dollars. But the point Mondale was making is that people have been investing in Indian jewelry for years. Yet, now that it's a rage, miany are spending a lot of money on it, with absolutely no idea of how to care for it. ALICE BROCKMAN Meissen, Dresden, Limoges, R S Prussia, Havtland, all names for some of ihe most beautiful porcelain in the world. One can almost imagine aristocratic women of the 19th Century serving tea to their friends in Limoges cups. Today, china or porcelain is universally admired and collected. It is acquired for artistic or practical purposes in greater abundance than perhaps any other item for the home. Especially popular is European pottery and porcelain. The Limoges pitcher, right, was made in France at Limoges, Haute-Viennc. The first porcelain factory was established there in 1771 by the Grel- lot brothers, under the protection of the Comte d'Arlois. During the late 18th and 19ith centuries, the manufacture of porcelain was flourishing with 40 different factories in production. Today Limoges is still ibhe "porcelain town." Haviland is one of the companies established at Limoges in 1842 by David Haviland, an American who started a French' porcelain factory for the American market.. Shortly after 1890, his son, Theodore, built one of ihe largest and best-equipped factories in Limoges, and soon became a leader in the making of fine porcelain. The fourth generation of Havilands is managing the Theodore Haviland porcelain factories at Limoges and in the United States today The R S Prussia plate, right, was made at Suhl, Prussia after 1861 when a factory was started there by Erdmann Schlegel milch. This very papular export ware included table services and ornamental pieces. Either E S or R S (Reinhold Schlegel milch) Prussia are accepted marks. Reinhold Schlegelmilch established another porcelain factory in 1869 in Tillowitz near Flenberg, Silesia. This china is morked simply R S. Meissen and Dresden porcelain were born of necessity. August ithe Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland (1670-1733), depleted his coffers in his ardent search for ornamental porcelain from the Orient. He became desperate to replenish his treasury and reasoned that a porcelain factory could provide funds and ornamental pieces at the same time. He sought the services of E. W. von Tschirnhaus, an eml nent mathematician and scientist to make porcelain, to the meantime August heard about an astonishing young alchemist, Johann FriediriLch Bottger, who was reported to be making gold from base metals, August seized Pottgcr, brought him to Dresden, then kept him as a prisoner at nearby Meissen. August "ordered" Bottger to make gold, but, of course, he couldn't, but Bottger did convince the Turquoise its a very. porous stone and exposure to oily skin, detergents, perfumes and hair sprays can change the color. Remove turquoise rings when washing your, hands. Put the jeweJf y on altpr you have used all the sprays necessary to keep body and soul together. Mary Rhotah, who with her husband, Speed, own the Turquoise Kiv in Cave Creek, Ariz., says she onlymscs a polishing cloth on her silver. "I never use a kitchen silver polish and toothbrush, because you can never get all (the polish out of the designs." Some women, like Jill St. John (who has been collecting the jewelry for years and, recently, selling it), say fey like the jewelry better when it gets a bit of tarnish an it. That however, can cause a problem, since the tarnish on a necklace can transfer to dress. Beverly Hale, who with her husband, Joseph (a cartoonist for Walt Disney Productions), own Two Moons in Burbank (Ann-Margret and Jonathan Winters are among their clients), has a trick. "I take a clear acrylic spray and spray it on the back of the necklace. But be very careful that no turquoise is exposed. It will eventually wear off, but meanwhile, it does protect your clothes." Stories have been floating around that if you want to test turquoise, you either hold lighted match to it or you rest a hot pin on the surface. Both procedures are very dangerous and can easily do damage to even the very best grade of turquoise. The idea of the heat, of course, is to reveal plastic. But no reputable dealer will allow a customer to so treat his tur- (Continued on Page 14) king he might be able to produce porcelain. With the assistance of; Tschirnhaus, Bottger finally made porcelain in 1708, and it was the hardest porcelain ever made. He was so pleased with his discovery that he inscribed a sign over the door of his laboratory, "It pleased the Lord to change a gold-maker into a potter." Under threats of the strictest punishment, August ordered Bcttger never to reveal the porcelain secret of manufacture. But in Bottger's later days, he was known to drink a bit, and talked about his discovery. Scon, .the method for making china spread all over Europe, so while porcelain production is no longer a mystery, many modern factories claim to have special and improved formulas for making paste and glaze mixtures and for modeling and firing their products, which they carefully preserve. nnounce Ah Mr. and Mrs. Samuel F.

YORK (UPI) - Sportswear once meant sweat socks, sweat shirts,.tennis clothes, golf skirts and all such togs for active sports. Then the term sportswear meant gold dresses, shirtwaist dresses, casual mix and-or match outfits for wearing any place. Today the word sportswear covers just about the gamut of fashion—frilly evening wear excepted. The new standing for the word "sportswear" was made by many designers showing their fall and winter lines to the nation's fashion reporters re- e^ance an cently in New York for American Designer Showings. "S p o r t s w e a r today has changed from the hard, tailored look to a spirit of elegance, softness and luxury," says Kasper, the designer. "It's not layers of patterns that play against one another but a harmony of colors and a blending of sweaters, jackets To STEIN'S For MEN'S & LADIES WIDE MOD WATCH STRAPS In Summer Colors FROM — £ Leo Stein & Sons, Inc.

In his latest collection shown to the reporters, Kasper offered a new dimension and understanding to these terms. From the loden flannel, English country feeling to the bulky Fisherman knit sweaters in heather tones to the lush gabardine group, he underscored luxury and elegance and softness. "The mood of the clothes is subtle, elegant, simplistic," he said. "It's almpst a dressmaker-type look." Anne Klein was another of the designers who described the term sportswear as "one of today's misnomers," She says the scales have tipped; casual dressing is right for every conceivable occasion in contemporary life. If anything belongs in a "special category," she said, it's formal evening clothes. That's Anne Klein's conviction, and her conviction always comes through clear as crystal in her designing. This Coty Hall of Fame awardee and the Wool Knit awardee is an acknowledged leader of sportive elegance. the new collection by Miss Klein and her associate Donna Karen is described as a smash hit. A record-breaking—for Anne Klein-$5 million worth has been ordered initially by stores carrying her line. Her line opened with a simple, costume illustrating her point about sportswear. Pants and a sweater in last season's pale grey-green called sea foam was shown with suede blazer in the deep winter green Anne called spruce. The two tones seem miles apart but an overtone of blue in each keeps them in harmony. "The new fashion attitude begins at the top," Miss Klein said. "The triangle shape of the past few years —high armholes, small shoulders widening to a flared skirt, is now reversed. The top is large and loose. Pants are straight and skirts look slender, even when there's a lot of fabric." Kasper's sportive feeling includes: —The loden look, from battlejacket to raincoat. —The grey flannels, in the zipper jackets and cardigan sweater. —Striped plaids in single- breasted blazer and reversible raincoat. —The gabardines, suedes and silks in rose, sage green and clay. The jacket shapes include the hip blouson, the big shirt jacket, the hunting jacket and the new, soft blazer. The pants are slim and straight and usually belted. And skirts —let Kasper answer: This season, it's the straight skirt with low pleats or the trouser skirt, the bias swingy skirt and the pleated skirt." Wedding vows were exchanged by Miss Debra Kay Miller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Miller of near Roseville, and Don T. Flatley, son of Mr. and Mrs. William FJatley, 8325-25th Ave., Kenosha, Wis., on Saturday. The nuptials were solemnized at 5 p.m. at the Roseville United Methodist Church as Rev.

Guests were seated by Rod Tate of Good Hope, Gary Huey of Pekin, Rich Foster of Springfield and Royce Armstrong of Monmouth during the organ prelude by Leo Ramer of Roseville. Soloists were Miss Rhonda Merritt and Miss Becci Cook, both of Roseville. Attendants Miss Mary Carlson of Roseville, maid of honor, Miss Kolene Martin of Kewanee and Miss Michele Flatley of Kenosha, Wis., sister of the bridegroom, bridesmaids, were in identically styled dresses of dotted Swiss. Each had white tippled brim hats trimmed with daisies. The maid of honor was in orchid, and ithe bridesmaids in lemon yellow and mint green. Flower girl was Miss Michelle Miller, sister of the bride. Given in marriage by her fa-! ther, the bride selected an empire gown of organza, over bouquet taffeta, trimmed with scalloped, sequined chaiitilly lace. The raised waistline of the gown was delineated by a narrow satin ribbon, ending in a small double how in front, Interwoven under the two vertical lace panels that extended from the shoulders to a point above the hemline, and then extended horizontally around the slim' fitting A-line skirt. The sheer yoke was trimmed by a scalloped lace high collar. Topped by a large organza bow, the detachable fully lined chapel train, was accented by a central panel of the sequined lace.
