Senior Recital FREEPORT -- Sister Leo- marie, O.S.F daughter of Mrs. Marie A. Lueck.e and the late Leo D. Lue~ke, gave her senior recital as part of the require- ment of her B.A. degree at the ,College. of St. Francis, Joliet, in Home Sweet Home By Nellie Hughes Our basement needs a parti-i Lion to act as a sawdust-baffle for the electric saw, plus some storage space. Consequently, my husband and I are deep in library books and magazines de- voted to redecorating and re- modeling. And the books and magazines are not solving the problem. Comparing those glorious four color illustrations of "perfect" room schemes to the battered rooms in this house is trustra- Lion, in spades. Decorators Unrealistic The people who write these home - decorating articles, like "how to rejuvenate y~ur living room for only $50/' seem to figure up the cost thusly: "Framed Japanese print, $20.- 86; paint and, roller, $8.20; blown-glass bottle, .%.92; home- made burlap slipcover, pattern, $12.02." How about the r u g? T h e draperies? Those pieces of good furniture which are not, as are ours, afflicted with sagitis, broken springs, cat claw ravel- ings, or permanent stains? Comfort, Upkeep Decorators not only are. un- committed, it seems to me. are the "cute" do-it-yOurself ideas. I like real miniatures: I don't like empty sardine tinsh u n g with red ribbon, with pictures pasted inside. I like eggs, but not ~gg-carton ceilings. I des- pise clocks without numerals, orange-crate and cretonne vani- ties, and I'd rather h a v e a good honest cobweb swinging from the ceiling than one Of those zany mobiles. After thinking things o v e r, guess we don't need that parti- Lion after all?

Who'd milk a cow in the living room? Who has a cow? Decorators today seem to have joined the ostrich or claus- trophobic school, where every: thipg not aesthetically right is covered up by something that is. If your window d o e s not overlook a snow-capped moun- tain or a blossoming tree, cover the thing with ,~ "colorful cel- lophane mosaic. Personally, I hold to the view that windows were made to look out of, and if you don't like the view, who's forcing you to look. old framed Great Aunt Effie in her dog collar is kind of cute, or because Raphael's Madonna comforts your soul. Y o u don't bang pictuers, you" hang "color the one year course in practical nursing late this year, there will be applicants who need financial assistance. Therefore, the school will continue to seek scholarship grants for the students. The School of Nursing will be ac- credited for the next three years.
