NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (UPI) - A Rutgers University researcher is looking for naturally occurring insecticides in flowers and other plants native to New Jersey. Cecil Still of the university's department of plant physiology says such natural insecticides could reduce the chemical industry's dependence on synthetics, which generally '.lun't get a clean bill of health from the federal Environmental Protection Agency. The focus of much of Still's recent work has involved cinerariaefollum. This variety of chrysanthemum has high concentrations of pyrethrum, the source of the active ingre- (Second of three articles.) SAVANNA, 111. (UPI) The Land of Oz is alive and well in tins northwest Illinois river town of Savanna. Connie Zink named her doll business for the fictional country because she is an ardent fan of L. Frank Baum's classic children's books about the Wizard of Oz. Mrs, Zink and her husband, Dennis, make and dress porcelain dolls and teach doll-making classes four days a week in their home. She also plans to make dolls to match characters in the Baum novels. "I've always collected dolls," Mrs, Zink said in an interview. "I've always loved dolls and I can't afford antique doils so 1 started this." She pointed to rows of doll heads, bodies, arms and legs sitting on shelves, ready to be assembled. Although the dolls arc made from antique molds and the finished products look like fine antiques, Mrs. Zink said they are not made to be passed off as such. "1 just like to show people they can make a nice porcelain doll for the same price you can buy those cheap plastic dolls lh.it everyone in the world hits one of." She encourages students to paint and dress their dolls in any manner they wish. The doll-making process takes about five days or four class periods, it begins with pouring of liquid porcelain into a mold. It is allowed to set about five minutes, then mnsl of the liquid porcelain In the center is poured out, leaving a layer to firm up for about an hour before the mold can be taken apart. The molded body parts are air dried for two days bsfore being fired in a kiln. Tho body section snrinks slightly and becomes stronger in the firing. Then the porcelain parts are scrubbed smooth and the face is painted The parts are fired a second time before being put together with hooks arid elastic. "Then you have a doll ready to be dressed." said Mrs. Zink. She sews the doll eothing. herself. Mrs. ZinK, 25. started her business after taking a class several years ago. Her dollmoking classes will be a year old in September. She sells the dolls at doll fairs and lo customers who have learned of her business through word of mouth. Prices range from $12 to $150. The business the Zihks operate in their home has several advantages over a full-time job away elsewhere, she said. "1 don't have to leave home or pay for a babysitter," sho said. "I went into this because I wanted a part-time job. I didn't want a full-time job I have to be at from nine to five. And, besides, I'm doing something I love. "But 1 couldn't do it alone. My husband probably does more than his share. He does all the pouring. If 1 didn't have a husband that is as cooperative as he is I wouldn't have even gotten started because there is no way I could do it all by myself." The only thing she dislikes about the'job, Mrs Zink said, is filling out sales tax forms.

Josephine Lowman For many years exercise was the neg'ecled child in HIP reducing family while diet was getting all of the attention with its dances and whirls between fads and theories. Its life was colorful and poor exercise was almost completely overlooked. Now opinions are changing rapidly. Today's thought is that in order to lose weigh! successfully, and keep the pounds off", more emphasis should he placed on increasing physical activity than on cutting down on food intake. As early as 19H3. nutritionists Jean Mayer and Mary Louis Johnson conducted a study which showed that inactivity plays a greater part in the development of obesiiy in teenage girls than overeating does. Actually, the overweight girls ate less than the thin girls but tile latter were much more interested in sports and generally were more active. Extremely interesting figures from the United States Department of Agriculture show that the average amount of food eaten annually per person has decreased while the average weight is up. This certainly tells a story that is fairly new to our ears and eyes. When we stop to think about it we realize how many things have happened in fairly recent years which led to less activity. Not so very long ago there were no washing machines and other similar conveniences and no television to lure us into the easy chair. unsmne CHILDREN'S WEAR Carter's JAMA SLEEPERS OFF CASS PLAZA—LOGANSPORT Weekdays 10 to 8 Saturday 10 to 6 Sunday 1 to 5 Martin And Tom Fox Go Around The World To See That You Get The Best Diamond Values ...
