Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - April 15, 1967, Winnipeg, Manitoba WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1967 25 How can parents change the viewpoint of other parents with- out causing dissension and enmity? I have just read the letter of a mother faced with this problem. She has a nice neighbor whose friendship she cherishes, but whose children are so destructive and so uncontrolled that she resents having them in her home. She wanted to know how she could go about dealing with this situation without losing the friendship of the neighbor. One answer is to be forthright and open about it. Be honest. Talk to the mother. Tell her your viewpoint, that you feel that children who come into a home and break some valuables, or who destroy a garden or walk all over flowers, deserve to disciplined. You do not feel it is your privilege to do this and ask her why she avoids this? Suggest that the two of you, as friends and neighbors, dis- cuss with other neighbors the whole subject of discipline and bow it influences the children. Ask her if she would come to a coffee at your house if, perhaps, you could get some third person to bring a book and read parts of it and discuss it. I might suggest as a starter the book called, Disciplining Your Child the Practical Way. by Peter Crawford, Prentice Hall, publisher, which you might borrow from the library. Follow it up with some other good books on the subject of discip- line. Your librarian will help. Since all the neighbors feel the- same way about these particular children, you are doing them a favor to have their mother listen to the ideas of some of these mothers, since they so clearly affect her children and herself. This approach is perhaps less personal than a one to one talk. It gives the mother an opportu- nity to express what she feels about discipline and hear it discussed and probably criti- cized in a friendly way. All parents should accept what all authorities agree upon and that is that children need discipline. Not only do they need it, but they want it. A child wants to be told what is right and wrong. He would like to have limits set to his behavior. He has to learn how to be considerate of others, and how to respect what does not belong to him. This is all in preparation for living in a world which demands a certain amount of orderly conformity and expects parents to teach their children the rules and regulations such as honesty, truthfulness, consideration by which we all live. For a mother to ignore children's misconduct is lazy, indifferent and grossly unfair to them. This mother seems intel- ligent and decent. She is off on the wrong foot and you do her a great service when you help her to see the error of her ways. Then she and her children become, what they should be, welcome assets to the neighbor- hood.

Monotone room designed by Carleton Vorney ot Dorothy Draper and Company, Inc., has plenty of interest despite lack of contrasting colors. Open-weave window drapes are in two tones of beige and white. Modern re- camier sofas near window are beige while the one in the foreground is in the same combination of colors as window treatment. The same fabric is used on the walls. Tufting the sofas gives a sense of texture. j INTERIOR DECORATING BY BETTY PEPIS j One-Color Look Refreshes NEW this period of riotous clashing color schemes, the occasional room done in tones of a single color looks fresh once again, especially when the stress is on pale neutrals. And these tones of white, off-white and pale beige are a particularly effective foil for the currently popular silvery metallic and mirrored accent. In order, however, not to appear dull and cold, such schemes must be enlivened by the use of contrasting textures which lend warmth. Slick, smooth surfaces should be paired with rough ones. Simil- arly, shiny lacquer finishes are a good foil for rubbed worn looking natural wood. Upholstery and drapery fabrics are a prime consider- ation in such planning. If the sofa is covered in one of the presently stylish rich velvets and there is to he no color contrast in the room, have the chairs in a woven pattern with an easily identifiable raised design. A single-colored stripe in satin and moire could supply a second texture. Supplement these with an interesting open weave at the window. Add a shaggy rug and there will appear to be a great deal of variety in the scheme despite the total absence of color contrast Wood pieces.too, being basically neutral, add still another element of texture. The opportunity to use an interesting wall covering should not be overlooked. Man-made vinyl papers come embossed with all kinds of intriguing and convincing imitations of other materials and, although not inexpensive, wear well and are easy to clean. Today you'll find, Homemakers Ask Betty... Q: We have a radiator under two windows. I'd like to treat windows as one large one. Should draperies be to radiator top or top of baseboard? Should there be a valance between draperies to conceal window shade I like to keep draperies open most of the time for it makes room look larger and there is a good view of green shrubs and trees. What color for draperies? Bug is beige and brown tweed: chair is in a narrow gold and olive stripe: another chair is toast and another has a beige ground with small green leaf all-over pattern. Sofa is olive green. A: Draperies go either to sill or, in a more formal room, to floor. Valance should go across the two windows. If draperies go to sill, valance could be ruffled, if to floor, valance should be straight and stiff. Since you usually keep drap- eries open and you have a nice view, have them in the French beige color of the walls. They could, however, have a braid trim in greens, gold and brown. and draperies in the master bedroom are bone color, carpet is a soft jade green. The powder room off bedroom has lavender fixtures and walls. Room faces north and needs color. Please suggest color for bedspread, toss cushions, also custom homes guide to WESTDALE WESTWOOD GLENDALE Q LU For further information contact ITA Developers of Residential Neighborhoods builders homes in: WESTWOOD Bailey Homes Ltd.

TOBE SAYS Mixed Colors For Your Legs NEW. band- ing has been one of the "in" fashions for several years now in dresses, suits and coats. But have you ever tried mixing colors on your legs? Latest leg fashion calls for the wearing ol a solid color: opaque or semi- opaque stocking under fishnet of another color! Some opaque stockings even come prc packaged with white fishnet hose. More adventurous color mixers can try almost any two colors together. How does yellow under orange net or yellow under green sound to you, worn with a white linen dress and bright orange patent shoes? Too strange? Not at all! Bring your fashion picture up to the minute with the byplay of color-on-color hosiery. everything from fine silky moires to wood grains and white-washed bricks. The effect of such a room would be quite formal but a more casual setting could be worked out using leather and tweed on chairs and sofa, a fluffy fur on the floor, bamboo blinds at the windows again with the emphasis on texture rather than color. Even accessories can add to this general effect. A selection of handcrafted ceramics: lamp bases, boxes, ashtrays and vases might be the ideal way to complete a one-color scheme. GIRLS WOMEN!
