A Southpaw and a Male Redhead Can Sure Sling a Mean Needle AP Feature Service ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Seventeen-year- old Kenneth Fldhaus, redhaired high school youth has won the Red Cross Service Medal for expert knitting. He was doubly handicapped at the start by the fact he was left handed and possessed no more than the ordinary male adroitness with knitting needles. The instruction book gave directions for right-handed knitters only and Feldhaus had to reverse the technique to come out the right way. Soon, however, he was outknitting many of the girl members of the Volunteer student knitting club of Hadley Technical High School and his work drew the attention of Red Cross officials. He has knitted a sweater, mittens, three boys' caps and a pair of half socks for Great Britain. He proudly wears his new service medal on the lapel of his coat.
