For the Folding Cot
SOME people have a talent for
making guests comfortable
without. a big house or even a
spare room. Here is how one clev
er homemaker solved this prob
lem by making an attractive and
practical cover for a folding cot.
A wooden frame with a bedding shelf
at the top .was made to fit over the cot.
This was covered with a fuU skirt of blue
denim trimmed in bands of blue and red
chintz. The mirror-door medicine cab
inet on top had feet made of spools glued
in place. It was painted blue outside
and red inside. Another thoughtful touch
was the good lighting for the mirror with
wall brackets connected with a floor out

Unused Dresses Will Make
Attractive Blouses, Jumpers
^ ?lrlla ~-J4a(ey. .
AS YOU thumb through your clos
ets preparatory to spring clean
ing, you'll probably come across at
least two dresses that are sadly
worn and unwearable. With the
clothing shortage and also the ex
pense ot buying new clothing, you
would do well to consider the pros

something distinctly attractive and
One garment that has plenty of
calls for wearing is the jumper.
When it's tailored, the jumper is
ideal for business wear or sports.
If it's made of velvet or another
of the more decorative materials,
the jumper makes an attractive
Before any remodeling is attempt
ed, the dress should be cleaned or
washed thoroughly and ripped apart
completely. Take care while ripping
so that no threads in the material
are pulled, and material so made
useless. If you want to change the
color of the dress, remove the old
dye first. If, of course, you are
dyeing it a darker color, the original
shade does not have to be removed.
For the classic jumper, trim off
the sleeves and cut the armholes,
making them fairly large. If you
are uncertain as to the exact shape
you desire, consult a pattern. Trim
down the neckline, too, into a
square or round shape.

If the original skirt is flared, this

it will add a note of smartness to

At the beginning of this article I
spoke about the possibility of your
finding two dresses in the closet.
Thus far, only one of the dresses
has been mentioned. The other dress
might well be made into a blouse
to go with the jumper so that you
will have a complete costume.
Select Jumper Blouse
In Contrasting Color
The blouse for the jumper should
be contrasting in color to the jump
er, itself, or it may blend with that
garment. With so many new prints
out this season, a worn print, pro
vided it looks well with the solid
color you have used in the jumper,
would be highly desirable.
If, he.vever, the jumper is of a
rathejfronservative dark shade, the
blouie can be a solid bright color
that blends with the jumper. Bright
red goes beautifully with navy blue,
or cerise is a lovely foil for aqua.
You'll find ample material in
most worn dresses for a blouse of
almost any style and design. The
most popular type for jumper wear
is the blouse that ties in a bow at
the neck, or one that has a neat
collar treatment and buttons down
the front. The sleeves may be long
or short depending upon your taste
and the material available.
If the dress is tailored, it may
not be necessary to rip the com
plete garment. Sometimes the bod
ice of the dress just needs trim
ming from the skirt and finishing to
make the complete blouse.
If you do want to make a brand
new blouse, rip the dress and start
as you would with new material.
Recut the sleeves and make them
long or short. Add a new collar if
the dress has one that is too fussy,
and do bear in mind the type of

HTESTS conducted under a wide range of
' soil and weather conditions proved
conclusively that Firestone Ground Grip
tires will give your tractors up to 16% more
pull on the drawbar. That's because only
connected, triple-braced traction bars...with
their extra tread-bar length in the center of
the pulling zone... take a "Center Bite."
Besides giving Firestone Ground Grips a
"Center Bite," connected traction bars also
insure better cleaning. There are no broken
bar, trash-catching pockets such as you tee
on ordinary tires. The connected bars are
stronger, too, because tbey are triple-braced.
This added strength increases tread life.
These money- and time-saving features
are responsible for today's farm preference
for Firestone Ground Grips. And they are
the reasons why it will pay you to hare
Firestone Ground Grips on your present
tractors and to specify Ground Grips when
you buy a new tractor.
'Arts is whit* sbours tbt "Center Bite" traction
