FOR HOUSE OF MERCY Phantom Dinner I Is Under Way The annual Phantom Din ner to raise funds for the House of Mercy is Washing ton's longest “party’’ and is now underway. Each year the Ladies Board of the House of Mercy in vites everyone to “dinner." No food is served—the “party" is nowhere and everywhere and lasts through the month of February. In this way the dinner which in reality doesn't ex ist, is pure profit for the home for unwed mothers. Tickets to the phantom event are $5 or as much as a person wants to give. Last year, the 80 year old House of Mercy sheltered 126 unwed mothers (most of them 15 to 17 years old) and their babies. Some of the junior high school students continue their studies under Ask DOROTHY DRAPER The Most Ordinary Things Can Inspire Color Scheme Glancing up between the maze of city skyscrapers the other day I saw the clearest strip of blue sky I have seen in a long while. For some reason it reminded me of a vacation I had spent in Nas sau one winter. I had met the Bishop of the Bahamas at a luncheon and he had invited me to see the bishop’s house. I was so Impressed with what he had done to the sim ple room which served as a chapel. He had ripped out the ugly brown tiles and substi tuted 12-inch black and white ones, and had whitewashed the walls and ceiling a fresh frosty white. The altar, a plain table, was covered with stiffly starched white linen, and over it was a tiny canopy of sky-blue. The recessed win dows had a friendly sky-blue trim. Tropical plants with shiny green leaves stood at attention in each corner of the room. The mahogany backed benches were dotted with pillows of sky-blue duck. Think of a room in your house with white walls and ceiling, bold black and white squares on the floor, with the home’s educational pro- - gram. The House of Mercy is not an adoption agency itself, however, staff members of the home have worked with some 25 adoptive agencies to arrange placement of babies. "A few of the girls with good jobs sometimes manage to keep their babies,” says Miss Irma E. Ruff, director of the home. Concern of the girls for each other is “a remarkable and constant attitude,” adds Miss Ruff. The House of Mercy is non-sectarian, and girls of 11 different religious affiliations were helped at the home in 1961. Under the auspices of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Angus Dun is president of the Board of Trustees. Chapel services are held each day at the home and o sky - blue slipcovers, white curtains with a design in em erald green and sky-blue at the windows, and the sun shining through, dappling the black and white floor with dancing yellow speckles. That’s what that one strip of blue sky reminded me of, so you can see how easy it is to think up a color scheme! V. E. C. asks: Our bathroom has oat meal colored ceramic tile with pale yellow trim and mint green walls. The fix tures are white. Shower cur tain has white background with orange, yellow and green floral design. I’ve been using white towels with gold monogram, and also yellow towels, but, somehow the room seems to lack some thing. I am quite unhappy with its present effect. Have you any ideas as to how it could be ‘perked’ up?” Dear V. E. C.: Let’s change the wall color first. Give it a new coat of mandarin orange. Put your white and gold towels away for awhile and introduce some orange and empire green ones as “perker up pers.” SUNDAY STAR VYashington, O, C., February 4,1962 the Chaplain, the Rev. John Q.
