Chapter House Activity Notes

Days Of Ginghams
Mud-Pies Return
In Fashion's Favor
Remember the little gingham
frocks you used to wear for mud-pie
making? Well, that isn't so far in
the dear dead past as it seems. Today
gingham is back with a vengeance,
not only for baking, or whatever the
grown-up equivalent of mtud-pie mak-
ing is, but for much more sophisti-
cated wear as well.'
If you are continuing your pur-
suit of mud-pies on the beach, ging-
ham is definitely the thing. Wear it
for shorts or slacks or for blouses to
go with either one.
For sports, of course, gingham is
very good. It is shown in sleeveless
tennis frocks and in almost any va-
riety of simple one or two piece frock.
Checks are very popular, all sorts of
vivid shades being good. The sim-
ple school girl note is carried out in
the gingham dress with the little
round white collar and almost any
frock of this kind has some sort of
white accent.
One very clever two-piece frock
was of red, white, and blue checked
material and its only trimming con-
sisted of big white buttons straight
down the front. Another brown and
white check made an ensemble with
a solid brown jacket.
If gingham is your favorite ma-
terial you don't have to limit it to
sports wear this season. It's the very
smartest thing to be crisp and tail-
ored in the evening, and the gingham
formal creates the desired effect.

provides all the necessary medi-

For daily use the best is Venetian

Inc. handles these preparations.
But how can that "come-hither"
operate without the proverbial

I N YOUR HOME, lighting is designed for beauty
as well as for utility. With good taste and a
little care in selecting and arranging lighting
fixtures and lamps, a decorative touch can be
achieved which may transform a room magical-
ly. And, the practical end of home lighting-
to provide adequate light for easy sight - is ob-
tained by placing the right lamp in the right
-Jome lighting begins on the front porch.
A pleasant, well-lighted porch makes for a
cheery welcome when guests arrive and creates
an impression of modernity and cleanliness. As
a general rule, 60-watt la ips in either ceiling
or wall bracket will provide most suitable il-
luminating for the average front porch.
The exterior of your home - the part peo-
ple see first and mSost often - can be given
charm and distinction by good lighting. To
complete your porch lighting, a genuinely prac-
tical service is rendered by an illuminated house
number, supplied with a 40-watt lamp.
Your eyes cannot tell when lighting is not
adequate. Only the Sight Meter can tell. To
make certain that each room in your home is
properly lighted, call The Detroit Edison office
near you. Our Home Lighting Adviser is at
your service, 'without extra charge.
