URBANA.—Studies show that coin-operated dry cleaning works well for many articles that need little or no pressing. But you may not get satisfactory results with other articles, says Marjorie Mead, University of Illinois extension textiles and clothing specialist. She explains that homemakers have obtained good results with such articles as sweaters, knit dresses and suits, blankets (non-electric), draperies and slipcovers. Machine cleaning isn't' designed to give clothing a professionally pressed look The machines may not remove wrinkles from garments although the process itself will not add new ones. Some machine services provide a water spray outside the machines. Applied before cleaning, this spray can help remove wear wrinkles from garments. Too, the machine process offers little, if any, opportunity for pre-cleaning spot and stain removal. Water spray will help remove sugar spots. For stains of unknown origin or ones such as blood or milk that may not dissolve in dry-cleaning solvent, Miss Mead recommends using a professional cleaner. In a coin-machine, the solvent could set these stains. Some articles and materials don't take favorably to the machine process. On the "not- recommended" list are raincoats because they lose water repellency and the machine can't replace it, electric blankets because the process may damage the insulation, and pillows and comforters because they may lose their shape and resiliency. Avoid machine cleaning anything made with leather because it becomes brittle. Rubber may lose its elasticity; felt may shrink. Metallic yarn may tarnish. Plastic may become stiff, soft or dissolve. The pattern in flock and lacquer prints may disappear. Stiffened fabric may become soft. Embossed fabric may lose its texture. For best results in machine dry cleaning, sort articles by color. Put articles together that won't cause too much damage if colors run. For example, put reds, oranges and pinks together. Sometimes mixing colored domes with white ones causes them to pick up lint and look discolored. In spite of its limitations, coin-operated dry cleaning does have some good points. It can save you money even though you continue to take same articles to a commercial cleaner. Also the process requires a minimum of effort and time. In most cases you can get your cleaning back within an honor. In the future, some improvements may be made such as spot-cleaning service and more pressing offered on the premises. By MARY SUE MILLER A lovely asks: Is it considered good manners to drink soup from a cup? Some around here say ye,s, and some say no. The Answer; A cup is for drinking! Like all acceptable table manners, the protocol for soup is based on a combination of logical and graceful behavior. When soup is served in a cup, a bouillon spoon is used to taste, test the heat, or eat solids such as vegetables. After that, drink up is the rule. Meanwhile the spoon rests on the right side of the saucer beneath the cup. At no time may it be left in the cup. Nothing is more awkward and accident-prone than a spoon sticking out of a cup. Incidentally, the same general procedure is followed with beverages in a cup. After stirring and tasting, the spoon should be retired to the saucer and not again brought into play. Now back to the soup kettle, and to the brew served in plates or bowls with a large soup spoon. Then, of course, it is taken with the spoon. To save mishaps the spoon is filled with a dipping motion directed away from the edge of the table. Once the soup has been consumed, the spoon is placed straight across the soup plate with the handle overlapping the right edge. The reason lies in the size of the spoon. It simply is too large to fit neatly on the service plate. While we are on the subject, let's clear up misunderstandings about serving soup. Cups are usually used at luncheon, soup plates at dinner. Any kind of soup, clear to thick, may be served in either a cup or plate. Winning Manners To open a door on increased poise and popularity, send for bur booklet, Winning Manners.

Seams to Me No Question Is 'Silly' By PATRICIA SCOTT If you are a novice at sewing, don't feel that any question you ask me is "silly." It's true that you learn by your mistakes, but why not save yourself time and energy by first seeking a solution to a problem? * * * * Q. I'm a beginner. What about finishing seams with edge-stitching? Can I finish all my seams on fabric that ravels by turning the edge under and stitching? If so, how much should it be turned under and exactly what is the procedure?—Mrs. E. M. A. Many experienced sewers finish their seams this way .. . even when they shouldn't! The edge-stitching imethod is excellent, but only when light and medium weight fabrics are used. If the fabric is too bulky, you will see a ridge on your garment when the seams are pressed. If in doubt, try it on a scrap of fabric first. After pressing your seams open, turn the raw edges under % inch and stitch. * * * * Q. I have yet to sew a flat button on my husband's jackets properly. I've looked at the ones that are already on but cannot figure out how to make a shank out of thread so the button isn't attached too tightly. Can you show me?— Mrs. L. D. A. Flat buttons come with two or four holes. Both are attached in the same manner. Use a double strand of heavy duty thread. Place your needle through your button mark from the right side of the jacket so the knot will be concealed under the button. As in figure A, bring your needle up through the fabric and through one hole. Then place a pin across the top of the button between the two holes, as in figure B, and take a few stitches over the pin going down one hole to the reverse side of the jacket and up through another hole. After you have taken enough stitches, bring the needle up from the reverse side and out between the jacket and the button. As in figure C, remove the pin, hold the button up and wind the thread around the stitches to form the shank. Securely fasten the thread with a few small stitches at the base of the shank. * * * * Q. Since I'm just beginning to saw, I'd like for you to ex- plain a loop-turner and a point- turner.—Miss T.J. A. A loop-turner is used to turn belts, fabric loops and various types of strips. It is a long wire rod with a hook at one "end. A point-turner is a small flat piece of plastic with a pointed end. It is used to get a good sharp point when turning collars, cuffs, etc. <D Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Ann Landers Two Dollars 'Saved His Life' DKAB ANN: Last Saturday night I had a date with Chuck.

When ;the band came 'out with the 3osa Nova I '$ was stumped be- Ann Landers, cause I'm not up on that stuff. I stumbled a little and Chuck said, "Holy Cow, will you please try to follow me?" I tried but couldn't get the hang of it. It was pretty gruesome.- Then we passed a mirror and I saw Chuck signaling a guy in the stag line to take me off his hands, Chuck held up two fingers. In a few minutes Potey came over and cut in. The next day I found out from Petey's sister that Chuck had paid Petey two bucks to "save his life." I'm so mad I can't see straight. What should I do?-WENDY IHSAli WENDY: Send Chuck one dollar in an envelope and tell him you don't think it's fair that he should stand the total cost of the cut-in—because you were just as happy to see Petey .as he was. * * * * DEAll ANN: You are very good at solving other people's problems.
