Launderability Aids Accep Of Linen Attire BY ALICIA HART NEA B«auty Editor Thoroughly admired through his- for its cool elegance, linen has never gotten the popular acceptance it's receiving in 1954. The reason is that linen's one disadvantage was a big one: the ten dency to muss easily. Now, with crease and shrink resistance added, wer'e seeing it in all types of garments, color and prints. But whether you select a linen garment in a fancy or plain design, you'll have no trouble laundering it. Washing, in fact actually adds to this fabric's beauty. However, be sure that you buy a garment that's made of good quality linen. Though sheer linen serviceable, it is not wise to buy one that is too sheer, And don't forget to check any trim for wash- ability. Moredately hot water can be used for both washing and rinsing. Bleaching and starching, however, are not recommended. After blotting with a towel to remove excess moisture, hang the garment to dry. When it is still quite damp, iron it on the wrong side, using a fairly hot iron. Iron until the garment is completely dry.

If you're house-hunting, don't let attractive incidentals prevent your looking for fundamental features. It's a good idea to make a list of those features before setting out. Don't forget to look for such things as good insulation in walls and floors, plenty of storage space, carefully finished moldings, halls with food width. • • * Before placing freshly cut flowers into a vase, snip off the ends with a sharp Jtnife so that the stems will be able to absorb the water freely.
