Here's Hoiv Make a Room Part of Outdoors By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures .Writer People bemoan that they haven't more space to spread their wings outdoors in summer, -but forget to look at the "acreage" going - to waste in their homes. "You can convert indoor rooms to outdoor living—a. porch, family room or recreation room to double your enjoyment of the outdoors," points out interior designer Erica Lemle of Hewitt, Long .Island. "The trick is making the indoor area look like it is part of the outdoors, and vice versa." If this is accomplished you can entertain without fear of rain spoiling your barbecue. You" just move into your indoor garden. "I've done this in my own home and in many other homes for a x very successful effect. The trick is in coordination, color and accessories," Miss Lemle says. Outdoor Flooring; She suggests that the same flooring be used indoors and out. She often uses flagstone, but one could use brick or another flooring. Highly waxed flagstone makes an elegant flooring indoors for this pur- pose. She chooses furniture that is compatible to both indoors and outdoors. That way you can use the indoor furniture outdoors in summer and the outdoor furniture in winter, if you like. The coordination of furniture helps to spread the "one big room" idea. "I love plants in the indoor room and this helps the theme along. I use lots of plants in groups, individually or hanging types. I hang oxen yoke from the ceiling, and these hold copper pots of plants," she says. Miss Lemle likes a hi-fi speaker hidden under a table indoors, so that the music' may be heard softly outdoors. "You can freshen the dreariest room with color, and I personally feel it is more important than the actual pieces of furniture used. People have definite reactions to color, and it can make them happy or sad." She has done red, black and white rooms with red linen on walls, white leather furniture,' white rug and white draperies trimmed with black burlap braid. She often uses inexpensive matchstick blinds at windows, spraying them in bright colors or black, and "they loojc terrific with, white curtains," she says. "Whatever you build or remodel should have large areas of glass," she advises, "linking the patio and indoor room to give the all-one-area illusion." In one porch-converted area she used slipcovers of yellow, red and black, the same material used in Roman window shades and its background color, yellow, was carried out in draperies. "Whenever you have lots of windows as you do in a room off a terrace, it's a good idea to break up the monotonous look with a variety of window treatment. In this instance I used shades with pattern, across an area along the back of a sofa, and used floor-length draperies of the same background on windows on either side of shades." Keep furniture and accessories informal, she says, even in screened-in porches that are closed in to be an extra room in winter. She uses tole bin bases for lamps and improvises with such objects as Chinese incense burners used as bases for coffee table tops. She likes long billiard lights over long tables. • ' Mrs. Killebrew Elected by District Junior Women's Group Mrs. Kenneth Killebrew, 201 Bellwood, Rosewood Heights, was elected assistant junior district director at the Thursday meeting of the executive board of the 22nd Junior District of the Illinois Federation of Woman's Clubs, in Caseyville.

A Lovelier You Winning Conversation By MARY SUE MILLER Why do you suppose husbands huddle on one side of the room at a party, leaving their wives to entertain themselves? Some men claim they are driven to conclave as a defense against "woman talk"—eternal chatter about fashion, formulas and household trivia. How much truth do you think there is in that charge? Perhaps you have a countercharge? Many women feel that "man talk"—business and sports—is dull. So why try to join forces? But were the effort made, everyone would have a more stimulating evening. The move is really up to the hostess. She should be prepared to keep the conversational ball rolling with subjects of general interest. It is best accomplished by staying abreast of the news about everything from world affairs to the latest movie. If only you step up your reading habits, you soon become a facile topic-tosser. Newspapers, periodicals and books shower you with information. Be selective about your TV and radio programs, and ideas come winging. You further enlarge your conversational base by interesting yourself in a new project — community work, a course of study, and even a hobby. Should you be a shy woman who is already full of ideas but unable to express them, your best gambit is talking to yourself. Few people would . be articulate had they not phrased their, thoughts before spouting them. In this connection it helps to bone up on vocabulary ' and grammatical construction. For certain, these steps make of you a winning conversationalist. Not just at parties, but in any situation you can name! © 1963 Pub.

Sometimes the tunic is thrown in as a variation.' • By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK ff— The lady who knows how to exaggerate will possess all the 'fashion status next fall. There will be none of this understatement business/ Style intends to be overstatement with a great big "Oh." Fashion writers here to cover semi-annual press week sponsored by the New York Couture Group can vouch for that. They will be pressing into service all the hyperboles at their command to describe such things as: Turtlenecks that rise so high they must be doubled back twice or three times, or smother the wearer. Some fold down under the chin in front, but form a snug hood in back. Waistlines that lifted, so far up on the dress that they pass the usual bosom line to rest somewhere in the middle. As a result you can't tell a yoke I from a waist. Sleeves, that reach\ to the wrist, billowy or slender; puffed, raglan style or the ki- monas type, but with lots of style detailing. This is surely magnification after two winters of nothing but goose pimples to decorate arms. Shifts that cease apologizing for being cinchless but slip along where the fingers probably are. Not sexless, as the male population swore the old time sacks were, these inspire the masculine imagination. A sportive look' that goes all out for bold checks, horseblank- et plaids, a mixture of textures, colors, layers and accessories. Certainly the accessories are caricatures of the mannish look. Swiped 'from haberdasheries are derbies, fedoras, bowlers and caps; ascots, vests, cuff links, and high boots. home in them unless at least 100 people plus \\\c press and the TV cameras were dropping in.

Velvets are splashing, colorful prints, or sculptured flowers, woven., to spidery net backgrounds, or quilted. Furs that are not satisfied to be trimmings, or linings; or. jackets or coats.

Fabrics are diverse, too. With tweeds go crepes or satins or velvets. Leathers and furs go with all of them. Fall coats are' shaped in front,; straight or oval in back. Or they are cape coasts. Coats without sleeves become jumpers. And coats- belted low and with pockets are actually coatdresses. In other words, dresses are very feminine, and formal or sportive and casual.

'"''' Ann Landers A Dead Fish Handshake Summer Clearance Sale Savings figure flattering UNIFORMS Maqticello Plaza Shopping Center Phoue 468-3831 DEAR ANN: My husband has a business friend who is a grand person of excellent character. Mr. F. C. (Fine Citizen) has contributed a great deal to our community and he is ad' mired and respected by all who know him. Mr. F. C. has .a fault which is "widely discussed 'behind his back ?b u t n'o b o d y %ants to come ! right out and ^ tell him. He has Ann Landers, a handshake like a dead fish. I feel it is sheer gutlessness on the part of the people who call themselves "friends" to keep quiet about this. Isn't it a shame for Mr. F. C, to go through life with this terrible fault when it could be so easily remedied? I've urged my husband to do this man a favor and tell him. My husband says he has no desire to make anybody over, nor does he want to jeopardize his friendship by risking offending the man. What do you say? —TO TELL OR NOT TO TELL DEAR TO TELL: People are not born with a firm handshake or with a limp one. It's something they learn. Apparently Mr. F. C. has been handing out dead fish for years because no one ever told him that a limp handshake suggests a lack of interest and enthusiasm. Why don't you send him this column—anonymously? . * * * * DEAR ANN: .I'm 8 middle- aged woman who hfis been going with a respectable widower for almost four years. Theodore is 15 years older than I am, but doesn't look his age. He enjoys art galleries, picnics, concerts and flower shows as I do. I am not trying to marry him so he need have no fears along that line. He is a pleasant, intelligent, attractive person and I'm sure he en joys, my 'would young girls with lovely companionship as I do his. Something happened last week which upset me terribly. Theodore invited me to his home to see his rock-garden. When 'we pulled into his driveway we found his son and daughter- in-law's car parked there. Without saying a word Theodore backed right out of the driveway and drove me straight home. He offered no explanation but said, "I'll phone you later in the week." What do you make of his strange behavior? —INSULTED AND PUZZLED DEAR I AND P.: Obviously, Theodore did hot want his children to see him bringing a woman to his home. Such behavior, of course, demonstrates an enormous lack of maturity. If you are content to be his companion continue to see him. But don't harbor any secret hopes that this relationship will ever go beyond that stage. * * * * DEAR ANN: My daughter Is 16 years of age. She is a good- looking girl with a beautiful, clear, peaches-and-cream complexion. Yet she insists on covering her face with a pancake foundation which gives her an artificial, masked,look. She makes up only her face and forgets about her neck, so of course, her neck is about five shades lighter, Several of her girl friends do this, also, One friend has an unfortunate complexion and the make-up does cover some of the blemishes. But why complexions want to cover them with make-up? Please explain. —ONLY HER MOTHER DEAR ONLY: Girls' who do this imagine the gunk makes them look glamorous. Someone ought to tell them that the wholesome, scrubbed look is in and the pasty-faced, consumptive look is out. * * * * Confidential to JUST NOSEY: Your informed source is misinformed. I don't wear a wig. I have never worn a wig, ,1 have no plans to buy a wig. Ann Landers will be. glad to help you with your problems.
