Her controlled bell, two tiered, floor length skirt was enriched with venise lace motifs and venise lace edging. A wide panel train edged with venise lace, enhanced with a large tailored bow with a center rose of organza, swept into a chapel length train attached from the scooped neckline.

SCHOOL GIRL'S SUPPER When it's Daughter's turn to cook, suggest this easy casserole: Mix together 1 large can meat balls with tomato sauce, 1 small can drained sliced mushrooms, and 1 cup cooked green beans. Pour carefully into buttered casserole. Make up mashed potatoes (from scratch, or by package directions) and ring them around the top. Dot with shredded cheese. Bake in a 350-degree gas oven about 20 minutes, or till the ring glows with gold. FANCY FRAME-UP When Susie trots home from school with "her very own" picture, frame it with a flourish! Save it for Grandma's Christmas. Find a dime- store frame about two inches larger all 'round. Give it a gilding. Lay the moppet's artwork against plain white paper cut to fit the frame. Border it with double strips of grosgrain ribbon, one in each of the picture's two best colors. Result? So professional, you'll send Susie back to draw a series. And my how proud she'll be.
