D. pee Over Hnebnefa Telephones: F«-W Residence 1M-X kitchen with sink at the base of the "U," you have the most ideal arrangement. However, an "L' shaped kitchen is usually a little easier to do in rearranging an old kitchen. One! Iowa farm homemaker found it difficult to arrange her large kitchen conveniently until she worked out the "island" shown above. This portable unit helps to enclose her working centers ,and to separate them from the family eating center, points out Naomi Shank, extension home management specialist, Iowa State .College. On one side the unit has sink with the range next to it and service space on the ledge above. A hinged shelf adds counter space to the side of the sink when needed. In the storage space at the back of the unit, table linens, silver and dishes are stored for convenient tablesetting. There is enough space for other things to be stored, too. Perhaps you can get an idea from this farm homemaker's plan. Difficulties are almost sure to come up when an old kitchen is remodeled. Even though an ideal arrangement is impossible, convenience is so im portant it's well worth the time to plan the best possible rearrangement. Rural homemakers spend more time in the kitchen than in any other room. ' , Shorten Kitchen. Another attractive way to shor ten large kitchens is to build a halfwall 3 to 5 feet high and 6 to 12 inches deep. The space cut off by the half-wall can be used as a family living center for eating, an office, resting or play. If you choose a deeper half-wall, shelves or drawers may be built into it to provide additional storage space. A hinged shelf at the end of a table, kitchen cabinet or across a window or unused door is another way to extend work counters where major remodeling cannot be done. Use door hinges and swinging wood brackets for supports. Then, where you have a sink or coal range sitting by itself without any counter space, make a lapboard table. Directions for making the table are available from the Extension Service, Iowa State College. If you put swivel casters on the lapboard, you can roll the extra counter space easily from one kitchen job to another. With housecleaning days, just ahead, the pictures are sure to come down off the walls. And, when you* put them back up, says Nora Workman, home furnishings specialist, Iowa State College, try some well-proved, ideas to put your pictures in the spotlight they deserve. Eye level is the best height to hang pictures, she says. At that level, they're easy to look at—and that, after all, is the main purpose of a picture. And, too, they seem to tie in with the grouping of furniture below them. Over a low piece of furniture, such as a davenport, they may even be placed slightly below eye level. Over a mantel, on the other hand, a picture may be just a little above eye level. Keep your pictures in scale with furniture size. A small picture doesn't look right above massive furniture. And a very large pic ture over lightweight furniture gives an overbalanced effect. Two or three pictures may seem to fill the area above a davenport better than a single one. But when you use several together, keep them similar in subject and coloring. Hang them in a straight horizontal line so they accent each other. Pictures look best hanging flat against the wall. To prevent tilting forward, place the screw eyes holding the wires high in the vertical part of the frame back. If the wire holding a picture forms a triangle above it, it calls attention away from the picture itself. Hang a large picture from the molding with perpendicular wires. When a picture is small, you may want to extend a wire across the back, near the top, and hang it over hooks in the wall. Always avoid tassels or other features which attract attention to visible wires. NOTICE TO BIDDERS For the third year in a row turkey growers are planning a cut in turkey production. 1. Sealed bids will be received by the Auditor of Allamakee County at his office, in Waukon, Iowa, until 1:30 o'clock, P.

M When we "have company for dinner, why do the children go on a tear? They never act up like this at ordinary times. Maybe it is because we also act out of the ordinary. We are more critical of their hands and faces, and their manners. We warn them to be good until they can't resist being naughty. They are over excited and show off. Or they may be so self-conscious that they back off with finger in mouth. This also embarrasses us. In, the child f,ails to enjoy family hospitality. He also may learn to feel hostile toward all adults in general. * This is too bad, for learning to meet his parent's guests is a useful part of the child's training. Family hospitality should be a happy experience, always to be remembered. There are better ways to train a child for his company manners. We may make the child feel better about the whole event. We can talk less about his bad behavior and more about the interesting time he will have. We also can make him feel important. He can help entertain and this is valuable training for a boy or a girl. It can be the child's business to meet the guests at the door and show. them where to put wraps. While mother finishes dinner, the child can show his books, his toy truck or her doll house. After that he may play a radio record for the company or draw pictures. Plans had better be talked over beforehand; If there are two children the entertaining can be divided between them. If the guests know how to talk with children, everybody will have a good time for trie few minutes before dinner. The child will feel secure and friendly. He will receive attention without showing off to get it. Not a word need be said beforehand about behaving nicely. He will have no time to be naughty. He will be too busy helping entertain the company. After dinner, of course, bedtime for the children will come soon— before their company manners wear out.
