In Iris Theatre THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA PAGE SEVEN For the Herald's Ilomemakers by Iowa State College Home Economists From Curtains To Dishcloths— Homemakers Voice Fabric Choice A nation-wide search to find out the qualities women want in fabrics for their homes recently resulted in some valuable information— information which should mean better home furnishings this year. More than 1,700 women took part in the survey, stating their opinions about tablecloths, bedspreads and part-wool blankets. Window curtains, window shades and even dish towels were covered by the national survey. Though opinions were sometimes sharply divided, the basic qualities most homemakers want in their home textiles show up clearly. Tablecloths. In tablecloths, for example, more than half the women of the country prefer cotton. Most women believe cotton is less expensive and easier to launder. However, about a fourth of the women interviewed said they would rather use a linen tablecloth because it looks better after being laundered and is "nice- looking and attractive" every day of the year. Though cottons can be washed over and over, linen is believed more durable. Only one-third of the representative homemakers look for practical qualities when choosing a bedspread, the survey showed. Most of them want a good-looking spread that is styled right, and a large majority would like to find these bedspreads made of cotton. In bedspreads, they say, cotton outlasts Dance MATTER'S BALLROOM Decorah, Iowa SAT., MAY 29 Musio By EARL HUNT — and his — ORCHESTRA Old and New. Time Dance Music all other fabrics, can be laundered right along with the rest of the wash, and is much easier to handle than most other fabrics. , Cotton also came out ahead as' the fiber most women prefer for the "part" in a part-wool blanket. Homemakers' preferences in light bedroom curtains were brought out in the survey. Most of them wanted durability first, good color and style second. Curtains that won't fade in the sun and won't stretch at the corners; curtains that are wide and full, that won't draw up and have to be stretched—these are what the average American woman wants. More than half of the women surveyed prefer cotton .curtains because more colorfast cotton curtains are available, and they are easy to wash and hang. However, most homemakers believe that rayon is better looking. • Window Shades. The advantages of better looks and longer life were brought out as reasons why more than half the women questioned prefer cloth window shades to paper shades. One in five women stood up for the paper shades, however, because they are cheaper and can be changed more often. When speaking about Venetian blinds many of the women declared they believed them too business-like, but 15 percent preferred them for their durability and because they can be adjusted to give any amount of light. When it comes to dish towels, most homemakers prefer feed sacks, the survey shows. At least only one-third of the women questioned said that they bought their dish towels. As far as fiber for the towel, opinions were almost" evenly divided between linen and cotton. Linen leaves less lint, dries dishes more quickly and stays dry longer. But cotton towels have more body, according to the answers given. Those who don't buy dish towels make their own out of empty flour, sugar or feed sacks. NO DEER A deer jumped in front of a car driven by Orville Anderson of near Corley and the vehicle received a dented fender. After the collision, however, the deer could not be found and apparently survived 'the collision better than did the automobile. To impress others we must be earnest; to amuse them, it is only necessary to be kindly and fanciful.—Tuckerman.
