S., Arlington Does any one have sugges tions and recipes for the use of wild cherries in jams, jellies or preserves? I have a wild cherry tree and hate to see all those wild cherries going to waste if there is a use for them. Thank you. ** * * Leather Marks? A. E. W„ Alexandria I would appreciate it very much if some kind reader could give me some advice on how to take marks off a leather-top table. The marks were left by small objects such as a small picture, vase or candy dish. Also, what is the best care for a leather table like this? It was quite expen sive. ** * * Hot Weather Hints R. K., Washington Here are some hot weather suggestions. If your children are restless on a hot day, and you can’t take them to the beach, try this. Buy a 25-pound cake of ice and put it in a clean tub or dishpan. Sit them dow'n around it with drinking straws to drain off the ice water as it melts. Give them a screwdriver or some thing to bore little holes in it and let them pour fruit juice or cold drinks into the little holes and drain it up. They will think of lots of other things to amuse themselves, too. I happened to boil eggs the day we did this and we held the hot eggs on the ice until they made a hollowed out place which the children used as a dish to set toy cups of food in to eat. Just the sight of the Ice is a big help In Itself. When they finished playing V *4 i ■^se*"T''.-for .1 i Flay° rll sFys i! 'fffesSCj " with it, I set the fan behind the ice to blow cool air. A few drops of blueing added to the water children are play ing, either the bathtub or pool, makes it much prettier and it doesn’t hurt my child’s skin. Does everyone know that a widely sold cold drink made up from packages sold for a nickel is much better if real fruit juices, fresh or frozen, are added to it? And since cold suppers are the order of the day, try some new experiments with jellied deserts, such as grated carrots and crushed pineapple with the apple flavor, or fruit cocktail with lime, canned pears with cherry and so on. A big meat loaf can be chilled ! and sliced for sandwiches for ! two or three days. ** * * Remove Grease Stain Mrs. J. E. 8., Arlington To Mrs. M. S., Washington: 1 Rub pure lard into the black grease spot and let it remain there a half hour or so. Then wash out with soap and warm water, rubbing between your hands. I have never used this on nylon shirts, but I have used | it on the children's nylon socks and it has worked fine, j It is also good on all cottonA and I have used it well on wool sweaters. ** * * Poems lor Framing Mrs. S. D. L., Vienna To Mrs. N. R. P. of Hyatts ville and Mrs. R. E. 8. of Upper Marlbcffo: You can obtain a free copy, suitable for framing, of ‘‘What Is a Oirl?” and also ‘‘What Is a Girl?” by writing to the New England Mutual Life Insurance Co., 501 Boyl ston jtreet, Boston, Mass. contrasting pillows and curtains. Inexpensive furnish ings add to the livable setting. TODAY'S HOME Start Planning College Rooms By MARY L. VAUGHAN Now's the time to start plan ning that college room for moving in next month. Uppermost fact to remember in the process is that dormi tory and sorority rooms are living rooms as well as sleep ing rooms. And it takes a little advance planning to really turn a dorm room into a comfortable, smart-looking home away from home. Just about every college room has two things in com mon dull, drab walls and uninteresting furniture. The big challenge is to camouflage, disguise, innovate and come up with a room you'll be proud of. Personality is the keynote of , the decorating process. Pick a Color It begins with the student's Individual choice in colors, | combined with an orderly ar rangement of personal posses sions and accessories reflect ing hobbies and special taste. Fortunately, this room-dec orating process is not bank breaking. Invest in a good bedspread ! and it will last for four years i and longer. Buy a good study ! lamp, too, because it will prove an asset on many a late study night. An old chair, recovered with a new fabric will be a popular spot during gab sessions. Other ideas for paring down expenses and having fun at the same time include using inexpensive prints for the walls, framing them yourself. If your biggest heart inter est is at Annapolis, reflect your thoughts with a large framed photo of your plebe. Add a framed map of the world and top oft your wall decorations with a United States flag. Or, if you’re a horsewoman with a wide-open-spaces per sonality, try using sculptures of horses, cowboys or cattle on your dresser or table. Lariats tied in fancy knots makegood wall decorations, and if you are lucky enough to have Texas relatives, send out a call for a Mexican saddle blanket to use for a rug. Tailored Spread For your sofa-bed use tail ored spreads that will stand plenty of wear. Choose a pattern such as plaid or a geometric design, or a plain bright-colored corded textured spread. Bolster pillows are great favorites since studying in bed is more popular than sitting at a desk. .

N.W. 3 easy to store in the closet, will be a welcome addition to the bed when friends drop by for coffee at night. In a dorm where it's not permissible to put tacks or nails in the wall, try suspend ing webbing from the molding to hold pictures or other deco rations. A piece of fish net ting will hold groups of favor ite photographs. If you are an art enthusiast, brouse in art shops for inter esting posters or inexpensive water colors or copies. Make your own mats for framing. Try Plants Plants are wonderful room brighteners, so try lining a windowsill. Or plant an old NOW...

Seems the president of the store was a little put out with the lack of interest generated in the school fashions. A plan was worked out by the store’s bright, young public relations ex ecutive. She called up 16 college girls and gave them SIOO apiece to buy anything they needed to take back to school. The similarity of the pur chases became a guide for the store’s buying plan of clothing for the back to campus set. Girls aren’t the only ones on college boards.

Take time before you go shopping to map out a color scheme and a budget and make a list of everything you need. Start with your favorite color in a bedspread and build around that. Use any excess money to buy inexpensive but individual accessories. And keep in mind, now is the wise time to shop, not during the first busy fun <weeks of the semester next month.
