SelectMensivear That's Really 'Easy-Care' If you're looking for "easy- care" menswear that will hold its shape after repeated launderings, consider the finish, fiber content and garment construction. Marjorie Sohn, University of Illinois extension clothing specialist, says that some of the "easy-care" fabrics achieve their wash-wearability via scientific finishes applied to the fabrics. Others have two or more synthetic fibers blended or synthetics blended with natural fibers. If you choose a fabric that Is a blend of synthetic and natural fibers, you will get the best "easy-care" performance when over 50 per cent of the fiber is synthetic. Suit linings should also be made from synthetics. Good- quality fabrics do not sag or fray. Shoppers should also note that a white nylon lining in a colored suit may stain. Miss Sohn suggests that shoppers resist suits that pucker at the seams or have rippled collars or pockets. You cannot correct these defects, and washing and ironing may only make them worse. Avoid suits with much top stitching, since they do not launder well. Be sure that the seams are generous so that they will not pull apart. Shallow seams in linings are also apt to ravel. Seams that have been finished by overcasting are smoother than other finishes after laundering. Furthermore, not only should the lining and fabric have some wash-and-wear characteristics, but also the thread, interfacing and trimmings. Top performance of the garment is supported by these accessories. Returns from Ohio Mr. and Mrs. Harry J.

Icy Cool Cologne Helps Beat the Heat By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor A good many women look hot and untidy all summer long while others maintain a neat, fresh, cool look. There are sound reasons for this cool look. It stems, first of all, from absolute cleanliness. This means a warm, scented soapy hath each day even in hot weather. A cold shower alone won't do the trick. It comes from consistent use of a good deodorant and fresh lingerie daily. There are other things: simple cotton or linen dresses in fresh, clear colors. Hair that's cut fairly short and kept shining clean. Light make-up in natural colors. And a scent that's flower-fresh, light and appealing. There are two ways to achieve a scent that feels cool to you: keep a bottle of cologne in the refrigerator or put a bottle into a bowl of ice. Then splash the refreshing, cool scent over your arms and wrists, lowering your body temperature pleasantly. One of the most famous French perfumes ever made it available in inexpensive cologne form.

Avocados vary in color— from a bright green to a greenish black; they may weigh as little as 5 ounces or as much as 3 pounds. When you use leftover cake instead of bread in that recipe for bread pudding, don't forget to reduce the sugar. Save one pound baking powder cans and use them for steaming those holiday puddings. Cover fish fillets with a mushroom sauce, top with buttered crumbs and bake in a moderate oven until the fish is done. When you are cooking pork tenderloin slice the meat crosswise, flatten the slices, then roll them in seasoned flour Fry in butter, browning first then covering the pan to finish cooking the meat. Youngsters like this simple dish: sliver the white of hard- cooked eggs and add them to a cream sauce. Spoon the mixture over toast and garnish by pressing the hard-cooked egg yolks through a fine sieve so they have a mimosa-like effect. Pantryshelf soup for a rainy day: creamstyle corn added to a thin white sauce and flavored with a suspicion of grated onion.
