Two Women Honored By HSC Students HUMBOLDT STATE COLLEGE --Mrs. Avis Passie thought resi- lents of Sunset Hall womens lormitory were "just being nice" ast Friday when they brought a rauquct of long-stemmed roses o her room in St. Joseph's hos- oital. Mrs. Passie. housemother ?t Sunset, is recovering from major surgery at the hospital. So it came as a complete surprise I'hen she learned she had been named "Mother of the Year" by students at HSC. The announcement was to have een made during a coffee hour n the Campus Activities Center as a highlight to Saturday's Mo- hers Day. As it was, some 250 mothers and their student sons and daughters saw Redwood Hall's housemother Mrs. Neva Slacks surprised with a second jouquet in what was to ha.ve een a double presentation. It was the first year that students have accorded twin awards o name two Mothers of the Year. J ast year's honorce Mrs. Kath- Â·yn Corbett, associate professor of sociology, congratulated .wo new recipients. With chalk, mark the seam line eilaching the skirt on the slipcover eight inches from the loor all around the chair. Cut he skirt 10 inches wide, allowing one inch for the hem and one nch for the seam allowance, making the finished skirt eight nches wide. Ruffled Skirt (Figure 1): The chair illustrated he.s a shirred or ruffled flounce. For this type skirt, measure around the chalked line on the slipcover, and cut abric twice this measurement. Mp.ke a one-inch hem along one ong edge. Then gather the band along the other long edge until it the proper length. Adjust gathers so they are even and stitch the ruffle to the slipcover. Box Pleat (Figure 2): When cutting this skirt, cut a strip three times longer than the measurement around the chalked line. This extra fullness is necessary to allow the backs of the pleats :o meet, as shown. Make a one- inch hem; form the pleats and stitch th emto the slipcover. Kick Pleats (Figure 3): Kick pleats are used at the corners. Measure the distance around the chalked line and add 64 inches, a band of fabric 18 inches wide (other skirts are 10 inches wide), and as long as necessary. Fold the band in half lengthwise, making the band nine inches wide. The fold serves ss facing, giving this flat tailored skirt more body. Pin the pleats al each corner, so that each kick pleat folds back eight inches, stitch them to the slipcover. Decorated Ovcrskirt (Figure 4): This is a decorative strip, overskirt, over a tailored skirt laving kick pleats. Cut two strips as wide as desired and equal in ength to the distance around the chair. Cut the strips any shape you wish. The one illustrated is cut with a scalloped edge. Stitch .' c two strips together with their right side facing. Turn to right side, press, and stitch the finished decorative strip to the underskirt and welting, forming an ovcrskirt, and then stitch to the slipcover. Â· 1%2, Field Enterprises, Inc.
