,.fl^.Ai^Milfeek:^i !R%rA"&>4*S« Algona Gitl Spends free Designing, Making Doll Dresses Some people play solitaire to pass time ahd others go fishing ill their free hours. Mary Joyce Rich, who works at the doughnut cotinter in <the Consumers Food Store, dresses dolls. Past the age where making wardrobes for dolls and "playing house" are the vital necessities of living for little girls, Miss Rich Started last summer to make fancy dresses for dolls for "fiin", design- Ing them and sewing them by hand. A yard or two of organdy or striped silk jersey and some ribbon and lace are all she needs. Anything from a red-and-white dress with huge valentine hat to a demure clotted swiss gown with rows of lace or rosebuds may be fashioned with scissors, needle and thread. iPutting the design idea down on paper isn't necessary for Miss Rich, although she admits cutting all of her skirts toy pattern. She designs as she goes along, taking ideas from the materials. Hindrances. Biggest hindrances to her hobby now are the scarcity of materials and the lack of time. It takes two weeks, working free hours, to dress a doll. "There just isn't much time," Miss Rich finds. And besides dressing dolls she has to keep up with a heavy correspondence. The first step in dressing a doll, Miss Rich explains, is finding one with a pretty face. Unless she's pretty, it's not fun. Older dolls with "funny" arms, half sawdust and half composition material are Interesting to do, she thinks. "You have to figure out how you can make a sleeve to fit the dress «nd still hide the sawdust part of the doll's arm." Reason for Hobby The reason for Miss Rich's hobby goes back several years. When she was five years old, she was in an automobile accident and givsn a doll with which to play while she was in bed. Last summer she decided the doll, kept in excellent condition, had earned the right to a pretty dress. So she crocheted a dress and hat for it—and then started in on her small sister's doll. ' ,j •'" One of the enjoyments Miss Rich finds in making doll dresses is dis- covering ideas she would like to see worked out in dresses for herself or sorrieone else. She used to make all her own clothes, but now prefers to make them for other people. Whittemore Man Is Civilian Again Whittemore: Sgt.

What happened was that engineers, in getting up steam after 'the usual Fourth of July shutdown, had neglected to see. tO;the closing of the whistle valve,, and, the force of the steam served to keep the whistle open. It was som6 time before they were able tp shut off the disturbing blast. Bill Aspelmeier, senior Mediapolis high school student, is helping out a farhier in his neighbor'* hood this summer. One ,of his fe> ported experiences on the farm of Harley Brockway is a battle with a snake while he was eradicating thistles. In striking, the snake factened its fangs into the back of Bill's high-top boot. No injury to leg resulted. Bill dislodged the snake with a spade and sent the Implement after the reptile as it beat a retreat. Classified Ads CLASSIFIED RATES Minimum charge 35c for 12 words or less.

The problem of farming profitably has in the past twenty years become a problem of no small consequence in every agricultural community. The successful farmer today has found it necessary to change his methods and adopt new practices in. almost every field of farm activity: This situation is particularly true in!the growing and feeding of stock and poultry. In this respect, experiment and-study on the part of the nationally known feed manufacturers and state agricultural colleges has revealed that ration's for either stock or poultry must consist of something more than farm grains if the most profit is to be realized. Farm grains are splendid when used as a (base but should be supplemented with other elements,to obtain the'maximum of .profit. Their feeds have' gained' a wide reputation as feeds which get results. Directions for their use are furnished with them which have only to be followed to produce a profit.
