Utucd: CHICAGO (UP)—Alternatives, or substitutes, in merchandise requiring critical or priority materials, have been developed rapidly since America entered the war. Many alternatives already have been manufactured and are now on thy market. Others are still in the production stage and more are being planned lor manufacture and release in proper .season. Simplification of design has played an important part in the development of alternative products. There also has been a marked reduction in number of merchandising it?ms. For ' example, Sear Roebuck listings in its current .spring and summer catalog dropped from. 1'22,01!) items Lo 95,000, a reduction oi 28 percent, This joint simplification and reduction has made for economy and efficiency in manufacture. liaincoiils. Hats, Dresses Many alternatives thus developed have been found .superior to the critical m-Uerials they were developed to replace. A Sears spokesman pointed out that in many instances they also were cheaper. One item which probably never go back to the original material Ls women's rainwear. Raincoats formerly were made of coated imported domestic .silk fabric. Now they are made with a coated domestic rayon fabric, equal in water proof ness to the silk but slightly weaker in tearing strength. Men's hats formerly were made of imported fur felt from England, France, and Australia. Now they are being made from mixtures of fur. felt and casein fiber in proportions of about 15 per cen fiber and 85 percent felt. Casin fiber developed within the last two years, is a milk product derived from .skim. milk. Women's dresses, formerly of all wool, nov; arc- made with mixtures of wool and rayon fiber.fabrics. Brass ttirls Reduced Sheep-skin lined .shoes have given way to a shoe with a cowhide outer and an alpaca inner lining. Composition shoe .soles which formerly contained 20 per cent rubber now contain no rubber. •Extensive changes have been made in plumbing and heating materials. Sink faucets that formerly were all brass nov; are made •with malleable iron body, spout, and handles of plastic:* and only the working parts of brass. Twenty-six brass parts in electric pumps were replaced with plastic, r;teel f or malleable iron. Heating plerhcnts formerly all copper now i.Tc^madc with all steel. Glass for Cooking In addition to alternatives and ..simplification, efforts have been made to make parts more widely interchangeable. New parts, in new materials, will fit in .old units and thus keep !he repair parts problem simple. Fishermen shnre in the alternatives program.. Fly and leader boxes Ivaye been changed from aluminum to plastic, fishing rod handles from cork to- plastic, and floats from cork to plastic. Golf balls are being reclaimed with a new cover and serve just as well as new ones. Many glass cooking utensils now are available., Glass costs less than aluminum and iron and makes-a usable replacement for those valuable defense mafpr-als. LAJTT KAMK . OK p. o. BOX NO. DTHKET UK K.

Vandalia, treasurer of the National Editorial Association 'HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Guerrilla Fighters Turn Gunfire On River Seals Two New Novels Worth Your Time Betty DC Sherbinin is 24 years old but she can write rings around many novelists older .than she. That fact was indicated in her first novel, "Wind on the Pampas," and is proved in her new book, •'Bindweed" (Morrow: $2.50). As did her earlier work, "Bindweed" has Argentina lor its setting, but this time it is not the life of the Pampas but the confined, tightly conventional family life of Buenos Aires. The Barros family was a matriarchy existing breathlessly be^ neath the domination of the old Senora. Her daughter and her t son-in-law .were slaves to her, ; but] her niece, Clara, was rebellious. The 'development of this close family conflict is beautifully handled. Epitomized in it .'is the whole struggle of the young women of South America to escape from the suffocationgi traditions of gentility and old lace in wTiich their mothers and grandmothers were reared. Clara is a symbol as weD as a person, and she bears her double burden well in her creator's hands. "Pendulum," by Theda. Kenyon(Messner: $2.75), is an interesting novel".throughount. covering three generations and three wars; the Spaiiisn.-American war, the first world conflict, and the present Armageddon. Margaret Pendleton faced the problems of the '90s, gave up her hope of happiness to care for her niece, Peggy, who knew all the hopes and fears of the war years and the ensuing •20s. Then came Margie, product of today, whom Peg-y cared for as Margaret had cared for her. Margie faced different 'problems. Yet all. three women faced the same essential difficulties, were confronted by the same desires and sorrows—the sorrows of women in war. ASTORIAv Ore.

Hold your loft hum! firmly though not like u vise, around ycur purtner's collur bone, thumb in front, fingers In buck. This is the contnct through which you receive first "word" oi where you go next. Hold your rig-lit, arm up—olhcr- wlse. he hus to. Keep your weight balancer] over the bulls of the feet • knees vury slightly bent like the folf- er's just before he tecs off. " When you come down with your foot, let the heel touch the poor too. The more you do thut the lighter you are to your partner.
