Countrysicle Bridal Party in Miniature By Sl'SAN rUAWI.lOV KISKI-K City of the sick indc'od is Knchcstir. Nnwlicri' i >lsc In the world do jou soo tiaffic coinr to a slop for the Infirm. In fact, It Is n unique city. Kvcii tiixls Kivi> yoo Iho rlprht of wn) if you wobble a little or hesitate a moment. This might just a.s well lie a Rochester column. Saw a Rroup of dressed dolls there in one department store window that I niiLst tell you about. They were designed aa n wedding party, bride and ^room, matron of honor bridesmaids, flower KM, KViiomM- rocn and rinu bearer. All wore crocheted parment.s. Tt was such n lovely weddinp party. Wish you could have been with me. * * * * THE BRinE WA.S in white, the matron of honor in gold, the maids in orchid, pink, aqua and Rrecn, and the flower Rirl in white, ;ind their cowns were in bouffant style, every stitch crocheted! Not onlv that, but thi' men in the party wore black In strip-' pants and black coats and tle.s. and white shirts, with white boutonnlere.s and (lellevc it or not. all these were crocheted, too! The little wliite sham covering the white satin pillow for the ring was crocheted nlao. except the bride's veil, the jewelry they wore, tiny /-old bends for the attendants and white pearls for the bride, llie corsages and flowern on the wide, floppy, crocheted hats they wore, and the ribbons which fell from the corsages and hat:', these were the only items not crocheted. * * • I TIfOlj'GIIT THIS would make a gnmd project for some ladies' .aid or church or club group to make for a bazaj.r, gift or table decoration for .i liridal party or shower. Several women could work on it at the same time and it wouldn't take long. The stitches nic ."Implc, dont rrochet a stitch m.\- sclf, as it is Greek to me. but know so many of you do crochet, and tiiat any woman who does crochet, has a nimble mind and catches on quick. Think you could duplicate this ensemble easily. Write me if you think I can explain it to you IT more d(Haii. I'd say the dresses were in a kind of scallop or shell design. « « 4 IIKKE I.S SOMETHING I think is pertinent: "There ari bad politicians and plenty of them. There are good iiolitlclans too, and while there arc not enough of them, there are a great many. "The American people have the habit of belittling Congress: on th< average, Congress is just as intelligent .and has just as much moral character as the |:opiilation at large. It is truly representative. Many members of the Congress are not only renderin}.» excellent service to the people—they are doing so at great personal sacrifice." \mmmTo Combming ttie Vindicator and Republican.

REA Managers Oppose Regulation By Commission Des Moines, May 21 (JP> The Iowa Rural Klectrie Cooperative association has taken under ad, viaemcnt until its next meeting July 11 a resolution opposing regulation of REA by a projjosed Iowa public utilities commission. The propoBiil was presented to the asaociatlon's board of directors by the manager's section of thi- Iowa REA at the closing session of its two-day conv(;ntlon here yesterday. Five reasons were set out in the resolution for opposing the proposed utilities commission, the reasons were: There is no investing public in a rural electric cooperative to be protected. The federal act under which REA is financed prohibits loan funds to be used to get into competition with existing services. An REA cooperative is self-regulating on rates and service, inasmuch as the patrons are the owners. The self-regulating cooperative asBumcd obligations of area coverage and there is no problem of un­ served areas. The regulation of a self-regulating cooperative would create unnecessary financial obligations to the owners Ibrougli the hamlling of frivolous complyinls.

S. A. has thrown out a part of its church law saying its ministers m.aj' remarry a dis'orced person only after a year has elapsed since tlie divorce. The change, given final approval by the 2,500,000-memlier church's to)) governing body, also strikes out a phrase specifying that minis- li'is "may remarry tile innocent party" to a divorce.

McCorkle, new editor of tiie church's official magazine, Presbyterian Life, said the assaults did not stem from political motives. "When a priest leads a mob to stone a Protestant church .and when a priest forcil)ly takes over a Protestant service x x x to blaspheme I'rotestantism .< x x it is not politics," he said.

Gus got into town Thursday night and today began personal workouts at Jayccc field and also is doing some work around the club house and grounds. Freeman has a soft, southern drawl to go with his smile but don't let that fool you. Gus says with real sincerity that he's always had to hustle on the ball diamond himself and he expects the same from the men playing under him. There's no substitute for giving the game all you've got, he declares. * * « GUS HAS BEEN knocking around in pro ball since 1946, going directly from the campus at William and Mary College in Williams- Ijurg, Va., to Topoka, Kans., when the Topeka club was a member of the Western Association, a cia-ss C loop. In 1947 he was with Raleigh, N. C in the class B Carolina league and played there again in 1948. At the close of 1948 season he was sold into the Brooklyn Dodger organization and played with Foil Worth in the Texas league in the beginning of the 1949 season. He was optioned to Greenville, S. C. in the class A South Atlantic league and finished the season there and then started out with Greenville in 1950 and went to Lancaster, Pa., where he was injured and was forced to remain out of baseball the remainder of 1950. Last year he was with the Philadelphia Philly organization and played near his home, operating at third base principally and at shortstop on occasion with the Elizabethon, Tcnn., club In the Appal.tchian league. » « » FHEE-AIAN HAS played under sucli veteran baseball pilots and players as Pepper Martin, Ed Head. Jack Sanford. Ivy Griffith. Butch Nieman and Chuck Cronin. He's played in both the outfield and infield but in recent years has seen most service at third and second base hut has held down the shortstop spot. Gus liked the looks of Jaycee field in a visit there yesterday and hopes to become acquainted with Red So.x fans before the season gets underway. He knows Don Hall from their pro days as both Were on the Lancaster club. Freeman expects to field a hustling, fighting club that will hold its own in Iowa State league competition. * * * Manager Freeman has about 10 days to assemble the Red Sox for their first exhibition game. The opening of the season ha.s been moved up to June 3 with the booking of the Blue Earth Blues at Jaycce field. Blue Earth has a capable semlpro club and will have a couple of performers from the Iowa State Teachers college nine on its roster and probably Kornbaum. cx-Mason City Legionnaire hurler, will return. He pitched tor Blue Eaj'th last year and made trouble for last .year's Esthci-vlUe club although loose support and tough pitching by Dick Atkinson let the Sox win the game without much difficulty.

"My hand still liurts a littl.' «hen I catch." Campanella said today, "but I can swing a bat." Thai 's the understatiMnenl of the year. Dutcli Hiller of Cincinnati and Karl Drews of Pliiladc'lphia can sadly testify that liie National league's most valuable phiyei of 1951 has lost none of his power due to his enforced absi'nce. Campanella sat out three games because of a bruised left hand. He returned to action Tluirsday and rocked Hiller for a three -run homer. THE ACE RECEIVER continued this destructive work last night .against Drews and the Phils. He drove in all of Brooklyn's runs in a 5-1 victory with a pair of home runs. Campanella clouted the 100th of his career with the bases empty in the second inning and followed up with a gamo-winning grand-slam blast In the third to insure the Dodger's seventh straight triumph. Bon Wade. 29-ycar-oid rookie righthander, went all the way for Brooklyn and spaced nine Iiits to hang up his third triumph. The victory also enabled the Dodgers to protect their half game lead over the runner-up New York Giants. Sal Maglic recorded his eighth victoi-y without a loss the Giants as ho turned back Boston Braves, 5-3. Maglie staggered a bit in first three innings and in the ninth but from the fourth to tlie last frame he allowed only one hit. * * • TOE GIANTS scored all of their runs in the fourth inning against hefty Max Surkont. They collected five of their seven hits in that frame. A two-run homer by Al Dark climaxed the uprising and provided the Giants witli their margin of victory. Veteran Ken Rafensberger, supported by youngsters, Wally t^ost and Roy McMillan, gained his third victory of the sea.son over St. Louis as Cincinnati shaded the Red Birds, 2-1.
