For the Herald s Howemakers by Iowa State College Home Economists Make Them Attractive— MEALS THAT INVITE THE FAMILY . R. F. Schneider VETERINARIAN ne No. 170 Postville, Iowa ce In Iris Theatre Building oseph B. Steele ATTORNEY-AT-LAW ce Over Abernethy's Store Telephone No. 240 When your family comes to the table for meals is it to eat in a hurry and then be in their way? Or does the prottiness of your tabic and the attractive way you serve their favorite foods cause them to enjoy "everyday" as much as "company" meals? It doesn't take much time to put a gay tablecloth on the dinner table, or a bowl of flowers on the breakfast or supper table. Yet these little things do more than add interest to meals. It's easier to train children in good eating habits and table manners when every meal is a pleasant occasion. Then when the "special" occasions come along—holidays, company dinners or parties—every member of the family will be at ease. They'll be able to make your guests feel they are really part of the friendly family circle, foods and nutrition authorities at Iowa State College say. Table Setting. Meals in most homes are served "family style." Yet there are frequent occasions when the buffet meal or even a more formal service is in place. The main thing is to set the table so that it is most convenient for you and your guests. This doesn't mean just putting the food on in any fashion, the foods authorities hasten to add. other flowers in keeping with the festive note of your table service. Figurines of china oiv silver candlesticks may be used here too. Place a silence cloth or pad of felt, or cotton under your table cloth. It improves the uppearance of the cloth and protects the table top. The • table cloth should hang 12 to 15 inches over the edge of your table. Lace or embroidered cloths require no silence mat. Place mats are fine for family as well as company meals. They are decorative, save laundry, and may be less expensive than all-over cloths. They should be large enough to hold the entire service of plate, bread and butter plate, cup and saucer, silver and water glass. Lay them close to and parallel to the edge of the table. PLAN CHILD'S PARTIES FOR EACH AGE LEVEL Convenience and beauty go together, and all types of table arrangements have certain good features in common. For example, the china, glassware and decorations on a well-arranged, convenient table always give a balanced effect. Pictures of well-set tables always have that "go together" look. Your own china and glassware can give that same impression if you arrange them well. Place your) linen, dishes and silver so they are parallel or at right angles to the lines of your table. Use Color. With all the colorful linen, pottery, glass and chinaware there is to be had, why hesitate to use color to brighten your table. Almost any combination will give a pleasing effect, if you use a few simple rules. Let one color predominate, use a medium amount of a second color and just an accent of a third. Use gaily colored pottery and peasant linen for a breakfast table, a garden luncheon or supper on the porch. The centerpiece might be vegetables, fruits or heavy flowers such as zinnias or calendulas. For company meals and special occasions, bring out your best lace, fine linen or damask cloth and your best china, crystal and silver. Select roses, lilies of the valley or To plan a party Johnny or Jane will really enjoy and remember, make it suit his age and give him a chance to play a part. It will be a happier occasion, says Mrs. Alma Jones, Iowa State College child development specialist, than if you've labored long over elaborate decorations or refreshments. A party for a child of 3 or 4 will be quite different from the one for the second or third grader. When the party is for a very young child, the guests should be few and their stay limited. While there'll be ac­ tivity and fun, the party shouldn't be overstimulating, and' it shouldn't interfere with the regular routine of meals or sleep'. Several balls, balloons, blocks, somei paper and crayons for coloring, and picture books are the play equipment Mrs. Jones suggests. The school age youngster should be encouraged to share in the plans and preparations for his party. He should have a Voice in choosing the guests, and he might make simple invitations, place cards or favors. Or he might help with the decorations or in serving refreshments. Through taking some of the initiative, the child grows up socially and learns that his greatest happiness may come in planning for the enjoyment of others. School age children like group games such as London Bridge, button button and guessing games. It's the intangible values—the joy of companionship and the feeling of being a real person in one's family and age group—which will mean the most to the children. Mrs. Jones points out, rather than a display of food and decorations.

Hansen & Matson Company, the large Chicago egg packing concern, has chosen Postville as its Iowa packing and shipping point. It now has under construction the first building of four large units to be built here. Postville public schools offer outstanding educational facilities and are attracting pupils from the four surrounding counties who are offered the courses of study of their choosing and which will fit them for college entrance or business and other fields. Postville's community hospital is serving a wide area. Its modern equipment makes it a health resort equal to any in this section of the state, sought out by those who are in need of medical care or surgery in its homelike atmosphere. Yes, these are just a few of the many reasons why Postville, the city of progress, is the trade center for this area. IT ALWAYS PAYS TO TRADE IN POSTVILLE
