THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, February «, IMS ' • ~ Hints From Heloise Send Smelly Cottons Back To The Factory By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: We dry cleaners associations have had to contend with the "fish" odor problems in cottons for the past five years. This question has appeared in your column before. As of this writing, not one of the dry cleaning research laboratories has been able to come up with a solution as to how it can be removed. I am enclosing the answer from a fabric which gives a news bulletin which gives a more complete explanation of this problem. Charles Jack Truxal. . . Dear Folks: Here is t h e news on fabrics from the professional dry cleaners on removing those offensvie odors from fabrics. "A large portion of today's modern fabrics are given some finishing treatment during manufacturing. This is done so that they will have some special property, such as dimensional stabi- Heloim lity, resistance to spots, stains, wrinkle resistance and so forth. "Under conditions of heat, (body temperature and heat involved in dry cleaning) and moisture (perspiration and steam in finishing), fabrics finished with carbamide resins of urea or melamine type may tend to give off an offensive odor described as being "fishy." "The development of this odor can be traced to an inefficient 'curing' of the resin on the fabrics or to a breakdown of the components of the resin. "When the odor develops as described above, it usually cannot be removed. "It is strongly recommended that garments affected in this manner be returned to the manufacturer since the odor is inherent in the fabric. Charles Jack Truxal Dear Heloise A few years back a friend of mine gave me an old fur coat (as she knew I loved to make something out of nothing). It happened to be a black seal-dyed fur. I ripped out the lining. Then I measured and cut pieces to make squares for sofa cushions and pillows. I overcast the seams on the Legislation Discussed By State Senator Senator William S. Bowers spoke on educational problems before the state legislature for Ottawa Branch of the American Association of University Women last evening. He outlined the reasons for and against the controversial issue of Wichita University becoming a third state university, and discussed features of House Bill No. 125, relating to state financial aid to elementary and high schools, creating a state school foundation fund and providing for distribution of funds. Mr. Bowers told that he is a sponsor of the constitutional amendment to make the office of county superintendent statutory. He mentioned two other bills, one on the unification of schools in each county and a bill to provide for a transition period after unification. He told there is a possibility that a bill on educational TV will be introduced. The Education and legislation committee headed by Mrs. Harry Moody was in charge of the meeting in First Methodist Church. Other members of the committee are Mrs. Mae McAnelly, Mrs. Haryey Martin and Mrs. Herbert Harrah. Two Students Give Program Several guests were present at a special meeting of Roundabout Club Monday afternoon at Mrs. S. R. Hubbard's to hear a program by two Ottawa University students. They were Michael Onwuemene, Issele-Uku, Nigeria, and Vinay Valia, Bombay, India. Mr. Onwuemene spoke on life in his homeland and his reasons for coming to America for an education. He commented on the religious, political and educational aspects of his country. Mr. Valia also told of his life before he came to the United States to attend college. He then showed slides of many famous places in India which he had taken. Cook Briefly You are less likely than you once were to hear someone say "Cooked cabbage always gives me indigestion!"

I cleaned the fur well and it ooked as good as new. I put these on my sofa and they look real nice and are so cozy! At rummage sales and thrift shops it is sometimes possible :o find old fur coats that could ideal for this purpose. These jillows can be covered with fur on one side and any kind of ma- ;erial you prefer on the other. One might have to do a little piecing on an old fur depending on the size and condition of the Fur coat used. But it seldom ever shows if the pieces are carefully and securely sewn. After they are made up, one can care- Fully brush them occasionally. Sincerely Firn Station P. S. Those who don't have any old fur coats to rip up could use imitation furs bought at remnant counters! Heloise Dear Heloise: It finally dawned on me, while reading the paper today, that I should share a little novelty which our family thoroughly enjoys. It's fish sticks! But not the plain old fish sticks that we usually serve to our family. . . regulation style. I buy a box of fish sticks, and while they are still frozen, I take my sharpest knife and cut them into little squares. I then lay these on a cookie sheet which has been lined with foil and put it in my oven. My family likes fish sticks cooked a little bit longer than the directions on the pacakge state. We find that this makes them crisp. For variations some nights, I slice stuffed olives into thin slivers which I lay on top of each little square bite. Its quick, it's easy to eat, it's cheap and it's different! My family enjoys this dish when cut into bite sizes. Yet they never even liked fish sticks before.
