Qualities wliKli tun k-ud lu bUccc'b.i In many other fields u* well ui, By VIVIAN BROWN It Is getting easier to be your own decorator as more manufacturers and stores lend a hand with do-it-yourself pamphlets and decorating advice. Now another assist is available, with a decorating course to be given in the fall at more than 200 Sears stores. Eight lessons and a textbook compiled by top-notch professionals are expected to give a homemaker confidence to try her hand at somo home projects, and to equip her with thu knowledge to collaborate with a decorator, if that is what she wants. Each store will use decorating experts from its area to teach the home decorating course. The most puzzling aspects of decora;ing—color, lighting, accessories, furniture styles and their origins—are explained in a basic way. One of the best known experts in the field of textiles, Dorothy Liebes, provides the chapter on color. Her course explains that color is a psychological force—for example, sensations in response to color make us happier on a bright, sunny day when light and color vibrations lift our spirits. In choosing a palette (she prefers to select from light, dark, bright colors) a logical pattern should be followed. The basic color scheme might evolve from existing climatic and regional conditions, and be built around possessions and the family pattern of living. Colors should be suited to the woman of the house and pleasing to her husband in Miss Liebes' opinion. Good lighting must focus on artificial light, lighting innovator Robert Sonneman emphasizes in his lesson on lighting. Glare must be avoided because "as glare increases, the ability to see decreases." In addition to pointers on quality, color and intensity of light and color and its reflections, charts illustrate the reflective value of colors. Sonneman also explains: ...Human flesh tones are more flattering in incandescent light, the red end of the spectrum...people often sacrifice lighting function for what they feel is aesthetic appeal. After selecting all the wrong lamps, they keep adding wattage and get more glare...There is a proper way to light each area of the home. ...Colors of walls and ceiling affect the level of illumination in a room—white walls refect about 75 per cent of available light; dark brown or black might reflect 5 to 15 per cent. Walls serve best when they are in the 35 to 60 per cent range. ...Lighting used for makeup should be as color 'true and close to sunlight as possible.Jn the bedroom it should be soft indirect illumination. Planning accessories gives one a real chance for personal liberation in home decorating, the textbook points out in a lesson from Lawrence Peabody, well-known designer of furniture and accessories. Accessories can be used to control space in creating a harmonious effect. Unity of color can help to achieve it. In a contemporary home, accessories might be lamps, ashtrays and vases in yellow. In a traditional room they might be blue and white in Delft and a handsome blue and white rug. Unity of materials is another way to provide a cohesive accessory scheme, Peabocly points out. Materials might be natural—wood, stone, brass, glass, chrome- no color. Or they might be brass or milk glass. Students will learn that small things—boxes, candlesticks, cache-pots, shells, minerals— help make a room 'personal. Flowers and plants can bring vitality to a room setting. A collect'on of tablecloths, printed dress materials or upholstered fabrics may provide a great deal of charm with matching napkins in a color from the print. In addition to one's patter n e d china, Peabody suggests that one should have a basic set of white dishes (to go with wild fabrics). Watch For Our Ad Each Thursday!

VISIT Ol'K LOVELY GALLERY 69 S. 9lh St., Rosewood Heights Lemon juice helps to clean stains from dishwasher top DEAR POLLY - I am answering Mrs. L.A.S. who wants to remove fruit stains from the wood top of her dishwasher. The booklet that came with mine says in pari not to let water stand on such a top and if it becomes stained or dirty to sand wHh No. 000 or Noo. 0000 sandpaper and then wipe area with a cloth soaked with nontoxic mineral oil. Soda water is good for cleaning ihc top, too. — MRS. J.C. DEAR POLLY - I would like to tell Mrs. L.A.S. thM my sister bleaches the wood top of her diswasher wilh lemon juice. When stains are removed it is rinsed with clear water and let dry. After a few hours of drying it is wiped with minieral oil but be careful to remove all the excess oil. — MRS. F. M. DEAR GIRLS - If you do not have sandpaper or mineral oil on hand steel wcil (without soap) and vegetable oil work just great too. Let oil soak in for about one-half hour and then wipe off. — POLLY. Today's Problem DEAR POLLY — Can anyone tell me if anything can be done with stainless steel tableware that was cleaned with silver polish that left a cloudy look and stains that I have not been able to remove. — MRS. E.J.W. DEAR POLLY — My 1'et Peeve is with florists who surely could be more original in their funeral arrangement, designs. After all these years of arranging they surely cowl do something more original and artistic than glad Sola sprays in a wicker basket. Many of these flowers are later sent to hospitals and it must be depressing to get what is obviously a funeral arrangement put in one's room. — MRS. G. D. C. DEAR POLLY — Our newlywed budget did not allow for buying a plastic picnic tablecloth. I took four plastic trash ca liners, slit them open down one side arrl across the bottom and sewed, them together on the sewing machine. Instant picnic cloth! The size of the cloth wanted will determine the number of JL bags required. When traveling put all yonr cosmetics in your shower cap and save or shorten many a clean-up job. If it. starts to rain and you do not have any plastic to throw over clothes beinr; taken to the laundromat put them in your traveling clothe,-? bag. Hanging items can. be carried in the regular way and folded (hings slip in easily. — MRS. L.L. DEAR POLLY — When a recipe calls for cracker crumbs, I use my one-cup food chopper and then they are already measured. This saves time, mess and the crumbs are all in one "place and not all over the counter and floor. —MRS. E.H. NOTICE—IMPORTANT MEETING! GODFREY KHOURY LEAGUE AUXILIARY WEDNESDAY, AUG. 30 7:30 P.M.
