(Extension Service Photo) Permanent Press Summer's Hottest Fashon News By Patsy J. Cole Home Demonstration Agent The hottest news for summer Is permanent press. This new finish produces wrinkle - free garments that maintain their shape washing after washing after washing. Creases remain sharp. Seems stay flat. And no Ironing is necessary. One of the bright spots in the permanent press story is that this finish costs the consumer very little extra, especially when considering the increased ease of care. Children's and teen clothes lighter-weight fabrics pose problems for they cannot always hold the amount of resin necessary to the permanent press finish. A third problem is discoloration. During the curing process for once the garment's shape has been locked in, seams and hem lines become permanent. Novel approaches must be developed to alter these garments; e.g., to shorten pants, cut off the cuff, trim excess fabric from let, and re-sew the cuff. tain dyes to change color; this that time.

Mallei University of Missouri Extension Center 4-H Club Sunday, the fifth 5unday after Easter, is closely linked with Rogation Days, celebrated for centuries in the Christian Church during the ihree days preceding Ascension Day. Originally, they had several emphasis, but gradually that of prayer for God's blessing upon Lhe fruits of the earth predominated. Rogation Days were first observed by St. Mamertus, Bishop of Vienne, in Gaul, sometimes prior to 475 A.D. In 511 A.D., they were ordered observed throughout France; and in 747 A.D. were established in England by church action. , Alfred the Great held them In reverence and included them among the most important of holy days. They were established in Rome by Leo III about the end of the eighth century. The idea is of more ancient origin, however. In the earliest days of Egypt, the ceremony of blessing the land and the seed at the time of planting was widely observed. Ancient people FARM Review and Forecast high temperatures cause cer sought the favor of the gods at run about one dollar higher than similar untreated garments, with men's and women's apparel up to two dollars more. The major costs are borne by the manufacturer, who must install expensive equipment and nating cuffs altogether. Others are making proportioned sizes in an attempt to fit every figure. Such sizing is of great benefit to the consumer, but it forces the store to carry a larger inventory. * * * Loss of fabric strength upon application of permanent press is another problem that has plagued manufacturers.

ONE-HORNED RHINO CENSUS GAUHATI, India (AP) - A census has established that 366 of the~great one - horned rhi- nocerous lived in the Kaziranga game sanctuary in Assam, the easternmost state of India. Juan Spillet, researcher from Johns Hopkins University, and a team of 20 Indians completed the census during March. They reported the sanctuary also houses more than 1.000 hog deer, 600 swamp deer, 400 elephants and 400 buffalo. The huge one-horned rhino, is found only on the Assam plain. A related but smaller species is found in Burma, while two other subgenera are found in Sumatra and Africa. When 4-H members today assemble to worship God on 4-H Club Sunday, they join a long succession which comes out of the dun past of history. The join with those of many generations in seeking the blessing of God upon the land, the seed, the cultivation of the earth and the enrichment of home and commuity life. 4-H Club Sunday is an outgrowth of Rural Life Sunday, which was first observed in 1929 at the suggestion of the International Association of Agricultural Missions, and soon adopted by the Home Missions Council of North America, by the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, and by other religious bodies. In Missouri, 4-H Sunday was first observed on July 12, 1936. Nine counties had the first 4-H Sunday, services that year. Those counties are: Cass, Carter, Reynolds, Chariton, Daviess Dent, Gasconade, Lewis and Shelby. In 1961, 25 years after 4-H Club Sunday was started in'Mis- souri there were 4-H Sunday services in almost all 114 counties. , * * » Approximatly 25,000 4-H members attended or participated in the services. A high percentage of 10,000 4-H leaders in Missouri also attended these 4-H Sunday Services. In some cases, county - wide services were held at one place and the entire 4-H membership of the county, was invited to that particular service. In many cases just the opposite is also prac ticed. Each 4-H Club, or maybe two or three adjoining clubs, organized their own 4-H Sunday. In observance of 4-H Club Sunday, 4-H members are encouraged to attend the church of their own choice. At that time, in keeping with the Heart H, their attention can well be directed to the development of their own spiritual lives and thus help them "to stand firm under the pressures of life" (Children's Charter). Food Stamp Plan Growing More areas of the nation are opening food stamp programs during May than in any month since the first pilot program opened in May five years ago, according to Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman. Mississippi and Crittenden counties in Arkansas are among the 59 new areas in 17 states that started using U. S. Department of Agriculture food coupons this month. With these two May openings, Arkansas now has. 12 counties in the food stamp program, * *. * Other counties are uonway, Faulkner, Independence, Lonoke, Perry, Prairie, Fulaski, Arkansas, Monroe and Phillips. . By the end of May, the Food Stamp Program will be serving more than a million people in 298 counties and cities in 38 states and the District of Columbia, according to the Consumer and Marketing Service — the USDA agency which jointly operates the program with the State Department of Public Welfare. Here's how it operates. The | county welfare office certifies that a household or family is in need of food assistance. Since' this is a voluntary program, it's up to the head of the family to decide if he wishes to take part in the food stamp program. * * * If he does, then he must buy USDA food coupons equal to the amount his household would normally spend monthly for food. Then, he gets a' certain amount of free or "bonus" USDA food coupons with each purchase. According to the USDA, .the program has these benefits:' These "bonus" coupons increase his food buying power — iften as much as 30 to 40 percent, ; the amount depending on. iize and income of the •family. This increase helps low in- conie families buy more and letter food'' to improve their- diets The food stamp program operates through regular retail grocery stores where USDA food :oupons can be spent just like cash'for'almost any food, un- ,ess .it's -specifically labeled as 'imported." • This is iri line with one of the main purposes of the program -to help U. S. farmers expand markets for the'foods they produce. : WINNERS—Susie.Scrape:.and.Claudia Leggett were winners in their divsiions at-the rceent ^H talent show held in Leachville.
