"•• ! L: year's collon gloves are revamped for wear with this summer's cluthes by bobbing off lops lo "ihorlie 1 lly Alicia H.ut NKA Staff Writer Bob off those last year's cotton gloves which may be too long to look chic with this summer's Stifor nal clotlu'.s. You can perform this surgery very uccessiully by snipping off lops o: to-lully Kloves lo "shorltc" or wrist- ):iiid length. Gloves of double-wo- 'on cotton may not even huvt- to lu'minc.'d after the operation. If you do wunt lo hem -^love lops iflcr you mark Ihe new length with a pencil and follow the miirklng with your scissors, use a whip slich over :ho ruw edge Hint you turn In and finish off. To make your revamped white gloves more resistant to soil—and this goes for the other cotton gloves in your wardrobe—dip them In a very light starch bath after laun- dcrim;. Then press. This extra step is worth the effort it takes if you want a longer lease i:m the immaculate look of. white gloves. Falcon Island Disappears; Fourth Time HONOLULU— (K'l— Falcon Island has disappeared, for the. fourth time In Its recorded history—but a man who ought lo know says It will rise agiiln some day, bigger ind better than ever. The Island .s (or was) a small, volcanic mein- jer of the Tonga group, 2,OM miles southwest of Hawaii. A New Zealand navy frigate reported March 3 that It liad vanished, leaving only a strong sulphur smell In tile vicinity. t>r i'homas A. Jacg&r, famous American volcanologlst of the national park service, predicts the Island rise again and eventually will grow up to l« a considerable piece of land, night now, he says. It Is In the process of piling up a lava flow under the sea. According to Die u. S. navy's hy- drographlc bulletin. Kalran Island first appeared as a reef In 1865. It grew Into an island, bis enough that the British surveyed it. Then in 1894, it vanished. Later the same year it reappeared rose to an altitude of 50 feel, thcr disappeared agnln four years later In 1900 a shoal was discovered a Its site. By 1913 the shoal wns gone It came up again In 1927, one mil long. The following year It rat 600 feet and spread out for tw miles. Ry lorili 11 hud subsided lo an al- litude of 200 feet, mid was down to 300 feet by 1838. Last March it was entirely gone Hf?aln. "It's a continual battle between Hie volcano and the .sea." Dr. Jaggar says. "Tlie volcano i>radi'.ully builds up. and storms wash I away In the end, the volcano will win." Here's the answer for people with a tiny kitchen area. It's a new compact unit, including refrigerator, range, oven, sink, shelves, and drawers all in one pi«cc.
