Remodel Your Old Garments Agent Suggests Ways to Overcome Wool Rationing With the use of wool for civilian purposes cut to half of what it was a year ago, longer wear for the garments on hand is becoming a household "must", says Miss Mary Claude Fletcher, county home demonstration agent. The use of wool by woolen mills ijuring the first month of 1942 is .imited to 80 per cent of the rate at vhich the mills were using wool the :irst half of last year. Since the na- ion cannot afford to skimp on uni- brms and blankets for the armed forces, the use of wool for civilian wrposes has necessarily been cut to rnlf of what it was a year ago, Miss p letcher, explains. In view of this situation, the remodeling and renovating of garments m hand, particularly of coats, will be a wise move. A coat, now outgrown, or outdated, may have in it •*ood wool with many more years of vear left, Miss Fletcher says. Homemakers faced with the neces- ity of learning the tricks of the tail- ring trade, whether of remodeling, or f making new garments, will find elpful suggestions and directions in new bulletin just off the press, dvises Miss Sue Marshall of the Univerity of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Title of the new 27 page how to do it booklet is "Coat Making at Home." The author is Margaret Smith, Clothing specialist of the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Home Economics. Single copies are available free from the Department. Included in the bulletin, according to the Extension clothing specialist, are suggestions for choosing a suitable pattern, tips on buying new materials, and step-by-step directions for putting the coat together. Directions are given for the important pressing that must accompany every step of the coat making. There are special sections on cutting the coat, on details such as bound buttonholes, pockets, and well-turned lapels, on putting on fur trim, and on making alterations, Miss Marshall says.

Those who customarily shopped about were even more startled when they couldn't get any sugar at all. "We can't sell sugar to strangers, the clerks explained. Candy and soft drink manufacturers were hard hit and in isolated cases, retailers were unable to supply the demand for these products. What's back of all this? Probably hoarding. The United States has an average annual consumption of 6,600 000 tons of sugar. In 1940, this stepped up to 6,900,000 tons. No one considered the increase serious and there still was a generous surplus. Then in i!941r, consumption jumped 1,000,090 tons over 1940 and by the end of the year, surplus stocks were so low they couldn't have fed a little cloud of flies until spring. The Philippine source is shut off and the Hawaiian source probably cut through lack of shipping. Is it any wonder that officials are alarmed? Agriculture officials consider it pretty likely that that extra million tons purchased last year is stored in the warehouses of dealers with a speculative itch or in the attics of consumers with a yen to look out for their own future, regardless of what happens to the rest of the country. But this is certain, according to Wickard: There won't be enough sugar this year to fill the old sugar bowl as full as in recent years.. Therefore, some conservation, really serious conservation, on the part of the public will be necessary. This can be done by eliminating waste, using less sugar and more sugar sugstitutes, such as honey and sorghum. FINE WATCH AND JEWELRY REPAIR WATCH CRYSTALS 35c All Work Guaranteed KAY'S E.

Then try developing your own films, Its easy, and you can learn to do It in very little tfme. experienced photographer Isn't at hand to help you get started. But whatever kit you get—and the inexpensive ones will do nicely at first—you're going to need a darkroom to worlc in. A large, empty closet will be sufficient, although many photographers prefer to work in a larger space—such as a bathroom or kitchen which has been made lighttight by heavy curtains over the door and windows. Or perhaps you'd prefer to build a regular darkroom of your own either in the cellar or attic. In any event when you're estab- lislied and ready to begin work, you won't have any trouble if yon follow directions. That's the secret ot producing high quality prints and negatives. Just follow the directions, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. However, here arc a few tips. Keep your equipment and developing solutions spotlessly clean; watch solution temperatures carefully and don't work when they're below GO or abovo 75 degrees; keep agitating your films and prints during development; and, finally, wash everything — prints and negatives —thoroughly—at least 20 minutes in running water. John van Guiltier I've been asked the question: "How can I develop and print my own pictures?" It's a good query—one that many of you probably have been wondering about—so I'm going to answer it today. Developing and printing, you see, are in a way the finishing touches In a photographer's education. When ha first learns how to make his camera operate, it's as if he were going to elementary school. Discovering what makes a good picture subject is comparable to high school. And learning how to develop a print Is equivalent—in the photographic sense—to a college education. It means you're having more fun too. To start your own developing the best thing is to purchase an inexpensive developing and printing kit. You can get them—one might say —in all shapes and sizes. That isn't important, but what really is important is that every set contains all you'll need in the way of chemicals and equipment. And included in each set is an instruction booklet which explains clearly and concisely the steps to follow in developing a film and making a print.

Women of U.S. Have Ideas Also LaGuardia's Secretary Advises New York Mayor By ADELAIDE KEKK AP Feature Service Writer She is Die woman who is smart enough to give advice to Mayor La- Gunrdia. She is the woman Hizzoner pointed at during an oratorical flight in the realm of crazy hats, when he said, "Take Anna's hat, for instance!" She is a woman who has almost as many jobs as Mrs. Roosevelt. She is Mrs. Anna Rosenberg—with this string ot titles behind her name: rjcgional Director of the Social Security Board for New York State. Regional Defense Director for the Office of Defense, Health and Welfare Services. Secretary of President Roosevelt's jVol'.untcfJr I Participation Committee (OCD). Member of the New York Stale Council of National Defense. Member of the Policy Committee of the Office of the coordinator of Inter-American Affairs (headed by Ivelson Rockefeller). Mrs. Rosenberg works in a big, green-walled, skyscraper New York office before a huge desk which holds a picture of her college senior son on the right, Franklin D. Roosevelt on the left and a figure of Ferdinand the Bull in the center. She touches a lot of territory, people and problems—old age and unemployment insurance, additional housing, hospitals and schools for industrial workers; volunteer work in civilian defense, labor problems; good- will gestures to Latin America. "I delegate a tremendous amount of work," she says. "I go out in the field and sec what's going on, so that I known what people arc talking about. But after that I delegate authority and leave it until I find it's misplaced. There is no reason to think other people make more mistakes than I do. Their batting average is just as high as mine. You can get a lot clone if you give other people credit for whnt they do. People want credit and they ought to have it." Mrs. Rosenberg is a small brown- eyed, brown-haired woman who looks much younger and prettier than her pictures. She wears smart colorful clothes and pretty—or crazy—hats. I liked her. She didn't show off. Anna Loderor was born in Budapest and came to New York with her family when a child. Before she finished high school she married a returning World War soldier, Julius Rosenberg (now a rug merchant). Those who have watched her in action say she mixes a warm understanding of human weaknesses with a liking for people and seasons the mixture with showmanship. They say she can be hard ,soft, businesslike, gentle, direct, blustering and a warmly sympathetic woman in a pretty hat—all in tile space of a few minutes. The combination often leaves the rest of the conferees a little groggy but the job gets done. •1- A Fare Deal PUEBLO, Colo.—(/P)—Signs of the times: the tramway company is rehabilitating old street cars that haven't been in service for years.
