Cassini says. Check Double Knit for Shrinkage URBANA —Women planning to sow cotton double-knit will be wise to select one that has been stabilized against shrinkage. This information was pointed up by recent University of Illinois research conducted by home economists Mrs. Ruth GalbiYiilh and June Hefter. They looked into the suitability of different interfacings for the cotton double-knits. The interfacings were woven and non- woven types In both iron-on and non-adhesive fabrics. For the tests, the researchers used small Chanel-style jackets conslMictofl with ilir knits and interfacings. Test results reported, in the summer issue of ILLINOIS RESEARCH indicate thai all of the interfacings except the woven, non-adhesive types were considered loo stiff for the knits. Both iron - on types caused great stiffening of the jacket fronts when they were bonded to the outer fabric. Laundering of the jackets showed up other features. Washing caused e x c e s s i v e shrinkage of the knit fabrics. At the same time, most of the interfacings shrank very little. Because of the great difference in outer fabric and interfacing, shrinkage, the washed jackets had a puckered or lumpy look. the Iron-on Interfacings (foil- trolled shrinkage of ide kfiilfc bflter than the hotWdh*l$* types.

' ' t ' ' Mrs. Galbraith points Mil Wifct apparently the knit fabrics Uaed in these tests had not been stabilized against shrinkage. So the results obtained In lau«» tiering came from faults with the fabric, not the Interfacings. She suggests reading the'-label on the knits to find out whether the fabric has been stabilized against shrinkage.

By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer An indoor garden seems lo be Hie new order in decorating. Il's find as long as you don't make a jungle out of your house. Plants—tall, short, fal—can add .a note of cheer to any house. You can't beal nature. But a sense of balance and proportion are the first requirements in choosing and arranging plants. Use as many plants as you can wisely integrale inlo the design of your room, but don'l create duller. One slraggly liltle vine or weary looking snake planl can ruin your indoor garden. A single plant can sland on its own if it has an elegant appearance. Bui il shouldn't look lost. Its purpose should be apparent—it has been singled out as a thing of beauty, it is supplying color accent in a unique way or it is softening its surroundings. The trend is to keep plants togelher for a grand design. A piece of statuary in the arrangement can increase its importance. Begin with a cut- philodendron or other tall plant, combining it with plants of different heights for very special Irealment. A shallow receptacle wilh some pebbles could be the base for' the statuary.
