Continuing with a survey of sleeve prospects, it's really surprising the ex- tremes.to, which some of them are go- Ing. Some of the more formal wraps of velvet or fine cloth have deep flounces dropping from the elbows, while one-piece frocks adopt sleeves which flare a wide circular-cut ruffle. Others have the sleeve and flare cut all in one piece. The idea of novedty is further ae- celled in applied ornamentation such as embroidered or appliqued pattern- lngs, which glee to the sleeve a new Interpretation. Perhaps the most marked departure in the way of sleeve treatments reg- isters In .the advance fur trimmed coats. Especially does the positioning of fur Interpret elaborated themes. One striking model of a modernistic patterned woolen weave has its sleeves cut sllghtly belled. There its a pointed upturned caracul cuff fin- Ishing in a diagonal llne at the top. Several inches above another band of the fur runs parallel to this diagonal, giving an intriguing swirling effect to the sleeve entire. For sheer frocks designers are cre- ating sleeves which repeat the pointed and'flared flounces which fashion the skirts. (), 1929. Western Newspaper Union.) We may be Ignoring sleeves so far as our frocks are concerned, but when it comes to the new fall coats and Jackets, that's another story--one in which unusual sleeves Is the dominant theme. Even now we are seeing this reac- tion to designful sleeves in that the Jackets which complement midseason ensemhles create a sense of "coming events" In regard to new sleeve silhou- (]Prepared by the United States Department of Agrlcunure. ) he increased vogue for garments made of rayon, particularly for under- wear, has led manufacturers to strengthen and improve this fabric so that it is usually fourd very satis- factory in respect to wear and to care. Many women launder for themselves any underwear that does not require ironing, especially knit garments of silk or rayon, such as vests, bloomers, stockings, and other articles, and if a few precautions are observed, this can be safely done and the articles of rayon will give good service. Some types of rayon are weaker when wet thlm dry, says the bureau of home economics of the United States Department of Agriculture. It is often torn by being hung up with clothespins or by rough fingernails or rings worn willie it is being washed. Lukewarm water should always be used rather than hot water, whlclt makes rayon tender. Seal,SUdS made of pure, neutral soap, are also pref. stable to rubbing soap directly on the garments. The fahrlc should not be rubbed, but squeezed lind rinsed re- peatedly until It Is clean. After washing, the garlnent should be hung over a line or In any other suitable place, bill under no clrcunl- |tances should clothespins lie used.

Because of her knowledge of fashions slle chooses this very pretty navy and yellow printed crepe sports frock, the button-trimmed flowing sleeves of which are one of its outstanding style details. By the way, if you are casting about for a timely midsummer cos- tume, one to bridge over between now and when cool days arrive, choose a dark print crepe. Those in the fash- ionable browns patterned wltb yellow or pumpkin or tangerine shade are Just as autumn-like as fancy can pic- ture.

Somewhat out of the ordinary Is thls Mexican salad, made with peppers and tomatoes, with a liberal amount of onion in the seasoning, as well as the characteristic chill flavoring.

Let tlds lUtXture come to the boiling point and then pour over ,he vegetables. When chilled, add the bacon, which has been broken into small pieces, and serve on crisp lettuce leaves, with the sauce a a dressing. Too ripe fruit is the cause of many failures in canning.

The air pilots know the value of tile condensed food, as they always carry a sup- lly of ha'rd ca.udles to nibble on, or chocolate bars. which are a food In themselves. S u c h food Is easy to carry, agree, ble to eat, and sustaining enough to supply the energy needed in long flights. Tim idea tha! candy eating is not good for tile figure- is one which Is not sustained by the act. resses who work hard. and whose slim outlines are so inlp.rtant. Here is what one says about candy: "It is necessary for an actress to keep her figure, and you may be sure I wouldn't eat candy If I thought it made me fat." She eats six or seven pieces of cand$ at every performance, which Is part of her current play and a bit of stage business. The woman who shops knows the ear!ness width assails t)er after a hour or two of pacing from one coun- ter to another. Those who have tried it, say: "Keep a package of candy In ymir puree; when the feeling of fa- tigue comes on, take a piece.' Sugar Is quickly avalhible, as it Is so soon absorbed and snpplles energy. With the proportions of one tea- spo,mful of sugar to one cupful of water all the other available vege- tables were cooked by these nmlhods. I,essen the sugar when the water Is less, as 0he-half cupful of water will take one-llalt teaspoonful of sugar. While the warm weather is with us. eep the candy box In the refriger- ator, especially choeohltes. The fa. vorlte boa.hun will taste better it well chilled than If allowed to soften in the warm air. Two groups of culinary experts, in research work, working Indepen|lently of each other, have beell improving the flavor anti appetite appeal ,n meth ods of cooking vege- tables. Althoagh sugar has been used In vege- table cooking for many years among many cooks to aecentdate and blend vegetable flavors, the general use of it Is rather a new de- parture for tile majority. When soldiers are to travel light. and yet go on hmg nntrches and still re. taln their energy, the beat cnncentrat. ed food for them Is sugar. Athletic coaches recognize the value of sugar for intense muscle effort, Crews giv- en a ilheral allowance of sugar to eat before entering a boat race were win. ners over their opponents who werf witlmut the sugar.

In that region, birds are safe from hmnan molestation. Al- though the grounds of the s'mctuary cover a lhnlted area, its Influence ap- pears to have spread through the whole town. In many yards there are bh'd-feed- ing stations. Trees along the maia streets have little feeding platform nailed to thent. Bird baths are al- most as common as hitching post used to be. The visitor there sees a regular parade of lovely birds, some rare, some common, all a little les shy than usual. Natives speak fa- miliarly of warblers and of varletle difficult to Identify except for the true bird lover. Wlld ducks swim on a pond not a stone's throw from the hlghway and take afternoon siesta under the shrubbery of private home and even In the school yard. If the author of "Main Street" has never visited such a town, he ha missed something really fine In Amer- ican life. There are more such friend- ly and beautiful communities In this country than the average person realo lzes.--Evansvllle Courier. Highway Beauty Matter of Highest Importance  The highways in many parts of Eu- rope carry their appeal to the traveler not simply as public improvements of. great utilitarian value but as works of art, if such an expression may be* applied "to a public thoroughfare Through a beautiful lane of trees, be- tween hedges or attractive fences of' stone Or other material, the highway.. run and lure the traveler on. It is an idea which is being caught up in, America and turned to wduable ac- count. It is now being applied, if on t limited scale at first, in MissourL The trees, shrubs and hedges now being: planted along the principal roads un- der direction of the state highway commission is an enterprise that prom 13es to give Missouri a return, hither- to denied, on its heavy investment ir these improvements. The selfish ef- fort to capitalize on that investment has lined.the highways at many points with ugliness.

Plan Wisely Before Start Building a house without blue- prints and speclflcatlons is the easiest way to waste money. Properly drawn blue prints, with accurate, specifica- tions, are simply a detailed plan for- the spending of your money. It mean that you have things planned out h advance of building and that all ex- penses have been anticipated. Yew know what you are going to get from the bvginning to the end. Accurately prepared blue prints and specifica- tions are worth many times more- than they actually cost, for without them time is lost In trying to study" out how the different parts go to- gether, and'there are endless oppor- tunities ,for the mnklng of changes and substitutions with an accompany-. lag greater expense and probahly" cheapening of the quality of mate- rials. Why Sacrifice to Speedy Over In Mill valley Is a beautiful. tall, redwood tree thnt worries those- who drive automoblle too fast. Un- less people who love permanent beauty more than fleetlng thrills object forci- bly, that tree Is almost certain to come- down. And why saould that tree---or any other tree In a residence district, any- where--be cut down? Speed In a home neighborhood Is never essenthll, but beauty Is. Warnings can be posted at corners, accidents can be prevented lw that way, hat nothing can be done to, restore the magnificent beauty that dies by the ax. The Redwood league- might say a word In this case, as It says many for the sake of our moun- tain trees.--San Francisco "Call and" Post. Title to Countryside The prize wlnner In the natlona wayside beauty slogan contest, "This is your country--beautify it," ought to. help In clearing up a good deal of" misunderstanding. Heretofore, the- IHghway traveler usually has been made to feel that the country belonged: to the billboard, hot-dog stand and: other interests wldch were out to make. the wayside as ugly as humanly pos- sible. If the ownership of the countrsr along the highways can be definitely estah!ls)md and a reasonable pride "t it can be bullt up, there will be pos- slhlllties In the promotion of attrae-- tiveness.Kansas City Times. Have Future In Sight Good architecture has a deflnlte sales value, and the prospective build- er of a home can be assured that If" his house is well designed It will have- a better resale value than a less at- tractive neighbor. ,i  ,
