Mrs. Henry Rowley spends some of her spare moments making figurines out of cornstarch, salt and water for her friends and for various organizations to use as place-makers at dinners. She got the idea for the tiny Santas, angels, skiers and sledders from the cornstarch mountains she used to mould as a grade-school pupil making relief maps for her geography classes.

Spare Time for Mrs. Leonard Mallory of 102 Ninth St. means a chance to make decorative little flower-buds from a mixture of salt, flour and water. She illustrates how they look as place-card decorations and as a blouse pin. Another hobby is making tiny wax dolls of paraffin and pipe-cleaners.
