CLAUSEN: Please tell me how to start geraniums from slips. How much protection should currant bushes have to survive the winter in this vi- cinity.—B.C.H. Answer: Take cuttings about four inches long. Make cut below a leaf. Let cuttings lay several hours so they can "heal" over at cut, then plant in sand or in sandy soil in two inch pots. Go easy on water until rooted. When rooted give plenty of light and always keep plants in relatively small pots for better bloom. Currant bushes are perfectly hardy without any protection here. * # * * DEAR MR. CLAUSEN:, We have two pyracantha ' (firethorn) bushes that are several years old. We have never had any trouble before this year. Earlier the green berries turned a dark j Cooperative Nursery School Workshop Mothers of the Alton Cooperative Nursery School met for an all-day workshop Tuesday, prior to opening of school, in Elm Street Presbyterian Church.

Cooking Cues It's usually best to have meat cut in at least 1 V 2 -or-2-inch chunks if the meat is to be threaded on skewers and broiled. It the meat is given a marinade, it is perfectly safe to allow it to stand (in the refrigerator) overnight or even for a couple of days. Keep cornstarch tightly covered because it is affected by the moisture around it. brown or black and some of the leaves yellowed. I knocked the dead leaves off and cut out all the twigs with the darkened berries. My husband has sprayed several times. At the present time the berries are bright orange but are few on the bush. No more berries have darkened, but some of the leaves are still yellowing. Are we going to lose our bushes even-' tually? What causes this condition after all these years?—Mrs. A. M. Answer: Pyracantha are sometimes affected with a blight that causes the above described condition. Spraying with Captain should help. However, the spray should be put on in early spring before the leaves come out. A second spray after bloom ought to help too. My guess is that you have oyster scale on your plants. Check your plants for a grayish rough condition on branches. Also if you have lilacs in the neighborhood (perhaps in your neighbor's yard), check them for the same thing. If so, spray with malathion in May when the young scale is in the crawler stage. • The amount of berries are governed by the parent age of the bushes. If they are cutting propagated from heavily berried plants you will have lots of berries. If they are seedlings you may have few or even no berries. None of the Red Firethorn are reliably hardy here. As yet we must be content with the orange berries. But maybe in another 10-20 years—who knows? Send your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, in care of Alton Evening Telegraph. He will answer them in his column. By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatnres Writer Young people who believe they are suited to careers in the field of interior design, should check their aptitudes, talents and reactions, before they embark on a career. The advice comes from Michael Greer, well-known interior designer. Greer has decorated homes in many parts of the world. "The interior designer of today must possess a strong sure knowledge of his historical precedents," he points out in his book "Your Future in Interior Design." Greer believes that an interior designer must fully understand the enormous influence that surroundings have on the lives of human beings. All studies of primitive peoples have indicated that they were seriously concerned with creating interior living spaces. Houses, huts or other dwellings were built functionally, but once the dwelling was built, primitive man concentrated on making the interior of his home beautiful and comfortable in his own way, says Greer. Even cavemen scratched pictures on walls to decorate their homes and Indians hung brightly patterned blankets as protection against the elements. Opportunities Interior design offers opportunities in an unusually large number of related careers. There are wallpaper, wall- coverings and lighting specialists fabric designers and furniture designers, and rug designers for flat surfaces and dimensional ones. Artists have tremendous opportunities as authorities on color styling. The following qualifications are important, he says: You should have taste, a sense of form, color, and scale, tireless patience with detail, imagination, and the ability to visualize in two and three dimensions. You must be personable and persuasive and understand the meaning of suitability and service as well as be artistic and knowledgeable. "Initial interests often are triggered by a display of color and composition in school art courses, working with theater design in amateur productions, or more technical talents in graphic art, drafting, drawing of houses and interiors. Shop classes can reveal proficiency in carpentry and a knowledge of scale and proportion," Greer says. Test Yourself He suggests giving yourself a test, by thinking of the last home you visited. What color was the rug? the curtains? What kind of furniture did they have? Where were the windows placed in the room? What was the general color scheme? Was the overall effect of the interior pleasing, or would you have, made changes? By observing such things you can learn a great deal about taste, he says. BPWC The role of the local club in its state, national and international federation was emphasized during a federation night meeting of Alton Business and Professional Women's Club Tuesday evening. The group met for dinner in Hotel Stratford. A skit entitled, "Beating Up a Better Batter," was narrated by Mrs. Irene Witty. The skit demonstrated the part each committee plays in the success of the local club. Dorothy Fink, member of the Edwardsville BPWC, and past president of the Illinois Federation, spoke on "Our Federation." The group voted to support the Salvation Army's "tree of lights" on Dec. 13, with Mrs. E. M. Leamon as chairman. The next meeting will be a dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 in the hotel. 896 Wltcsfl* Child's Delight Ho-hum— sleepy boy! Just the right doll for a sleepy child.

The reception will be held in conjunction with the first concert of the season in Hatheway Hall on the Monticello College campus, Oct. 21.

The group will have its next meeting Dec. 10 at 12:45 p.m. in the home of Mrs. Karl Hoagland Sr., 628 E. 15th Et. Cooking Cues Roll out leftover pie pastry and cut into small squares. Put a small piece of cheese in the center of each and fold over and seal with fork tines. Bake in a hot oven until golden brown. Slice hard rolls and butter; fill with slices of Swiss cheese, anchovies, Italian-type salami and paper-thin rings of sweet onion. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY News Letter, Swiss Alpine villagers were compared to city residents of the same cultural and social backgrounds. The isolated villagers climbed to mountain pastures daily, and carried loads from 60 to 100 pounds regularly. With this intense physical activity, the amount of cholesterol (present in degenerative arterial changes) was much lower than among the city dwellers. Docs absence make the lieart grow fonder? Answer: Yes, for a time, but in the long haul fondness can only thrive on reasonable proximity. If th<! heart continues to grow fonder after months or years of absence, the two individuals involved are either neurotic or grossly immature. The poem from which this line is so frequently quoted actually refers to a place, rather than to an individual. It was written by Thomas Haynes Bayly (1797-1839) and the second line reads "Isle of Beauty, fare Uiee well," Is exercise a fiu-tor in heart disease? Answer: Regular physical activity is more of a preventive. In a study reported in Science <C 1B03. King Features, Synd., inc.) Are round-table discussions worth-while? Answer: It depends somewhat on the seating arrangement. Psychologists have noted that discussants are more likely to, tajk to persons across the table than to those sitting next to them, In qth- er words persons seated farthest apart tend to follow each other in expressing their opinions, while those sitting next to eajch other rarely do so. Best results are achieved by seating the garrulous next to each other so they will not monopolize the talk.
