Care of mattreSkSes, pillows,

and since these bedding materials ( j

emphasized is the size of the!
"Nothing is more unpleasant than '
bedding that is too short or too j '
narrow," Miss Gordon declares.-'
"Short sheets are uncomfortable j
since they do not protect the 1
blankets and mattress. Also, they
wear out more rapidly because the
sleeper is always jerking them.'
The publication recommends that
the bottom sheet be long enough
to allow for a good tuck-in at the
head and foot, so that the sheet
will be smooth. The top sheet

gotten up there to lay the egg was
