Samoyeds Paka, left, and Star watch their owners comb and spin bundles of their shed hair in the first step in the production of a sweater or scarf. Bob Jones left rear, and Wilma Coulter, collect the large amounts of hair shed by the Samoyeds and begin turning it into clothes and garment adornments. Hair from Great Bernards, Pomeranians and Collies is used also as these breeds shed well and their hair as the same sheen and weavability. --AP Wirephoto Here's real 'hair of dog' SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Not ones to waste anything in today's depressed economy, some San Franciscans are making sweaters, skirts, scarves, gloves and hats. All from their dogs' hair, no less. "Twenty dogs can make a mountain of hair. You might as well use it," said Frances Roe in an interview Tuesday. "It makes a super warm sweater." Old art form returns MAUI, Hawaii * -- The old art of scrimshawing is coming back to Lahaina. once one of the leading w h a l i n g p o r t s of the Pacific. In the early 1800s as many as 100 to 200 whaling vessels would anchor off shore during the winter. The whalers, when they weren't ashore c a r - ousing, could be found fin- i s h i n g t h e scrimshaw work they started when at sea. S c r i m s h a w i n g is recognized as an original f o l k art developed by whalers d u r i n g their long voyages. They used the teeth and jawbones of t h e sperm whale for their carvings. The sperm is the only whale w i t h teeth. The whalers a l s o employed t h e black fibrous whale- bond from the mouths of toothless whales. A g o o d - s i z e s p e r m whale has about 42 teeth. After a catch the captain has first choice and then distributes the remaining teeth to the crewmen. The men used shark's skin to smooth the teeth. Mrs. Roe said she meets almost every month with friends who, like her, own Samoyeds, an arctic dog commonly used for pulling sleds. - The friends come carrying bags of the stuff obtained through normal shedding and combing and sit about turning it into yarn and then articles of clothing. "There is something so aesthetically pleasing about wearing something made from your own dog's hair," said Bob Jones, a department store display builder. Jffi CONTENDS SAMOYEDS' moderately long hair is best for spinning yarn, though he sometimes combines it with St. Bernard, Pomeranian or Collie hair. It is important to keep one Samoyed's hair separated from another's, because owners insist on wearing something made of hair from their own dog. "Sometimes we get a little carried away with our enthusiasm," said Mrs. Don Coulter. The fuzzy white border of her black skirt was woven from hair from her 8-year-old female Samoyed. Mrs. Roe says she plans to invest in an electric spinner to speed up the manufacturing process. Using a manual spinner, "It takes about an hour to spin an ounce, but an ounce goes a long way." The group is considering going commercial and selling its articles. Jones said some of the group will charge "between $30 and $40 a pound for the hair."

"Our industry has been (BW) -- Leaders of the a proud and vital part of American Sheep industry America's heritage, since have pledged themselves the beginning of the na- to revitalizing their waning industry, hopefully leading to doubled production of lamb ' a n d wool products within 10 years. At a combined meeting of the N a t i o n a l Wool Growers Association and the National Lamb Feeders Association, Howard D e r r i c k of E l d o r a d o , Tex., president of the Denver-based American Sheep Producers Council, told delegates t h a t the industry is facing a "door-die" situation. ' Derrick pointed out that s h e e p numbers are at their lowest point since records were first kept at the time of the Civil War. Domestic sheep p o p u l a - t i o n now numbers 16.5 million. Derrick was most em- p h a t i c in relating the sheepman's current situation. "We are faced with . s e r i o u s problems, and they can no longer be ignored if the industry is to remain alive five years from now. Rebuild costs run up, up ... DETROIT I* - It takes a lot of money to change the face of a city. The $200-million, long- term mortgage loaned by four insurance companies to h e l p build the first phase of Detroit's Renaissance Center is the largest amount ever floated for a single urban redevelopment project. Another $200 million has been raised from a couple of dozen banks in various parts of the country for short-term construction n e e d s , w h i l e s o m e 50 "blue chip" companies, which f o r m the Renaissance Center Partnership b u i l d i n g t h e r i v e r f r o n t project, put up the $40- million down payment. By the time the center is c o m p l e t e d in 1983, another long-term m o r t gage that may exceed the present $200 million will be required for the pri-. i v a t e l y financed develop- m e n t , according to its sponsors. downslide will continue OGfil SUITS Famous male suits in the lolesl traditional and European styles ·ilh a selection in either two piece or vested models.
