Extra Care Must Be Given
Drapes and Upholstery
Although the idea of “spring house
cleaning" is now old—fashioned, still
spring weather brings household
furniture and belongings out to air;
after a winter of staying indoorsfi
High on the “scare. list" this year
are upholstery and draperies. and
to preserve them for the duration,
homemakers must take Special pains
in their care this spring.
The most important way drap
eries and upholstery can be made
to give longer service is to keep
them clean. Frequent airing and
brushing keeps the dust out of
labric and keeps it new looking. A
timely suggestion is cleaning up
holstery and draperies every week,

Mrs. America Meets the War
EDITOR’S NOTE: War touches every home 'and citizen. This
colunm based on official government «information and prepared
by the Office of War Information, shows how the war will
affect Mrs. America and her home.
Individual preferenoe will play a
great part in determining the
amount of ration of Mrs. America’s
family under the new program for
an equitable distribution of meat,
cheese, canned fish, and edible fats
and oils. -The heavy meat eaters.
for example can spend as many
points for this preferred product out
of the basic individual allotment" of
16 points weekly for all items in
cluded in this rationing program.
But in doing so, of course. the ration
of other products under the program
will be reduced, accordingly. And
here’s another point: Because of ab-

normal meat shortages in certain‘
areas. do not expect to find every

in the first day or so of rationing,
which begins March 29.. It may take
a few weeks of the new program
to adjust the situation. Rationing
and the future uniform dollars-and
cents retail price ceilings assure Mrs.
America of a. double-barreled blow
against the black market meat with
its attendant health dangers.
Look for new uniform dollars
and- cents prices on rayon stock
ings after April 15. And here’s good
news for Mrs. America to whom
rayon is the mainstay of hosiery
needs, because OPA‘s new uniform
prices will reduce the cost of stock
ings 35 to 40 cents a pair. This
new price regulation also should
increase the. wearing qualities for
prices will be pegged to specific
standards, and hose will be graded,
accordingly. Certainly Mrs. America?
should have no difficulty in deter-1

regulation also provides that the;
price be stamped on the welt of the
hose; In addition to price, the gradel
and other information must be in
dicated. . I
On the subject of hosiery prob
lems, “cosmetic -stockings" should
be plentiful. No scarce ingredients
are needed for this cosmetic, which
is rather like liquid powder with a
deeper coloring. Actually. when the
good old summer time comes around
leg make-up is expected to help
stretch the hosiery supply aggin.
Wash day in wartime may mean
an introduction for some housewives
to the washboard. The housewife
who does not possess a ‘washing
machine certainly will not see any
.new ones being made. for the tons
of critical materials formerly put
into this equipment has been divert
ed to war production. ’However. re
pair parts for old machines are still
being made. But even the metal
wash boardis a past number in
household gadgets. Only the small
est dnount of metal may be used
in swashboards. That’s why Mrs.
America will find two types from
which to choose. Boards with glass
scrubbing surfaces in wooden frames
provide one answer. The other
is an all-wood washboard held to
gether with wire. And don’t worry
about splinters because-’this model
is made of hard wood which should
not wear down too readily. , -
Speaking of doing the family
laundry, don't be surprised it the
old-fashioned iron which is heated
on top of the stove re-enters Mrs.
America’s household. For one thing.
