Hints From Heloise Follow These Rules In Starching Clothes By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I would like to tell your readers that we have been working with starched products for some 10 years and were particularly interested in your comments on starching. As you stated. . . washer starching is the fastest, most economical way to starch, if one has lots of starchable laundry. You men- > tioned having received m any letters asking for help on starching spotting. We have found that starch spotting most often occurs for the foiling reasons: Helois* 1. A sufficient amount of starch solution is not prepared to completely cover and saturate the clean, damp items to be starched (this is particularly true in hand starching). 2. Lumpy starch — improper preparation. 3. The starch solution and water are not mixed well. 4. Dampened articles (starched and dried) are not allowed to stand long enough to permit even distribution of moisture before ironing. 5. Uneven starching — all too often a homemaker wishing a heavy starch finish on heavy weight fabric (such as denim or khaki) uses too heavy concentra-1 tration. 6. Some fabrics are inherently hard to finish with or without starch (particularly some rayons, linens, and dark cottons); they should be ironed when damp (right for ironing) rather than the usual procedure of drying, sprinkling and then ironing! With reference to dryer drying of starch loads: if clothes are tumbled beyond the storage dry stage, some starch will be removed from the dried clothes. We have found, if at all convenient to do so, the homemaker will save herself time and money if she removes the starched load from the dryer when right for ironing, place in damp towel or piece of plastic and iron at once or set aside for ironing later. By this method she saves herself the need for redampening, the time of waiting for the sprinkled clothes to be evenly damp, and use less fuel for operation of her dryer. Starch that is sprayed on is expensive but to the homemaker who places a premum on convenience and her time, it's hard to beat. 1. You can spray and iron a portion of the article at a time. Most "starchables" adapt easily to the spray method, even some you might not expect: Khakis — A light, even spray gives a medium stiffness. Spray and iron again if heavy stiffness s desired. (Caution: If the spray s too heavy, the starch will not lenetrate as well and will "flake off" when ironed!) Bedspreads, tablecloths, slipcovers, and other bulky items can >e starched more economically with hot starch but they finish wonderfully well with this method too. 2. You can spray dry articles completely — roll up — unroll and iron at once. Smaller articles, and especially those made from light weight fabrics are "naturals" for this method. It gives the starch a moment to distribute more evenly and penetrate the fabric better. OHS Notes Carrying Kennedy's physical fitness torch, several senior high girls set off this morning with two pairs of shoes each on their way to Lawrence. Kathy Reusch,. Edith Ponton, Cindy Christian, Karen Wilson, Teresa Morrisey, Linda Showalter and Feme Caylor began the 23-mile trek at 7:30 and hoped to be home by 6 or 7 this evening. Having gone many more educational miles, a senior girl has been awarded a scholarship in recognition of her high school achievements. Myra Droge, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Les Droge, has received a grant to Washburn University amounting to |250 per year for four years. Teaching junior high students In preparation for such later col lege work is Mrs. Ray Kelley. The new teacher who often substitute* for absent instructors, will fill the vacant spot in the junior high faculty because of the death of Mrs. Ralph Ruhlen. Mrs. Kelley now teaches both seventh and eighth grade English classes. ..The senior high art club is undertaking the painting of a mural to be hung above the central stairway of the school building. Earlier in the year, a mural donated by the club in 1956 was slashed by vandals who broke into the school. The mural is to be approximately 3-by-12 feet and will include the illustration of most auricular and extracurricular activities. Asks Livestock Price Probe LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)-Nebras ka's state director of agriculture has asked Attorney General Robert Kennedy to join in a Nebraska-led investigation of the drop in livestock prices and its effects on retail prices. In day, while livestock prices have dropped, there has been no corresponding reduction in retail prices. He said this might mean 'a possible restraint of trade of nice fixing violations having federal ramifications. a letter to Kennedy Thurs- Pearle Finigan said that The Nebraska Legislature voted Thursday to have a committee study a proposal authorizing the state agriculture department to investigate the situation. Blouses, skirts, play clothes, sport shirts — try this method on: strong colored dacron • cottons and other light-weight blends; solid color cottons — keep the spray fine and even; dark colors — spray and iron these from the wrong side — of course! 3. You can spray damp-dried articles completely too, roll up and iron immediately, or put aside for ironing later. Some fabrics streak readily with any starch and are always difficult to finish. Perhaps this method will help when difficulties arise. Dresses — solid colors linens and rayons; keep the spray light to avoid excessive stiffness. If "ironing line" occur, brush with a damp cloth and touch up. 4. You can hang special items on a line to spray. Petticoats — try hanging these on a line to spray starch. When dry, touch up with a steam iron if necessary. Partially starching — W ant crisp collars and cuffs only? Spray the wrong side and then the right side! Then iron—first your wrong side and finish on the right side. No-iron net curtains — Hang these on a line, too, and spray starch. When dry touch up with a steam iron if necessary. Travel touch-ups? As you steam press, try very light spray of starch to remove creases and to crips up collars and cuffs. Ethel J. Russell Home Economics Consultant Approve Emporia Bypass EMPORIA, Kan. (AP)—A proposed 6.3-mile, $4.178 million bypass of U. S. 50 around the north edge of Emporia was approved by most of the 175 persons at a public hearing Thursday. Kansas Highway Commission officials conducted the hearing and said they would inform the U. S. Bureau of Public Roads about the local reaction. The project first was proposed in 1951. It has gained new impetus from prospects that Inter- slate 35 will be extended from Ottawa to Emporia in the next decade. By building the by-pass to interstate specifications so that it would become a link between Interstate 35 and the Kansas Turnpike, 90 per cent of the financing would come from federal funds, Dale E. Dugan told the group Thursday. Dugan, advance planning engineer for the state highway department, said the state and federal governments would share the cost equally if the project is built otherwise. He said the state hopes to do the grading the fiscal year starting in July, and do the paving the following fiscal year. There was no opposition from any of the merchants on the present U. S. 50 route through town. Here's How Decorate In Living Color Dobie Weds HOLLYWOOD (AP) - DwayntJ Hickman, television's Dobie Gillis, moved his wedding date up nine days and married actress Carol Christiansen Thursday. The wedding was scheduled for March 16. "We just didn't want to wait that long," said Hickman. Hirkman and Miss Christiansen were married at the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church. Select Dairy (Home Owned) CH 2-1607 1020 N. Main By .VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfcaturw Writer Anyone for the Bossa Nova? In the home, that is. A new method of color coordination just introduced for the home takes its color cues from the Brazilian dance. Light, bright, airy, the method of color integration of rugs, upholstery and drapery fabrics will apqeal to those who have "two left hands" when it comes to decorating their homes. The Bossa Nova colors, as they are called, comprise 75 hues from five primary and secondary colors. The idea is to keep you in step no matter how you mix and match them. The easy - does - it coordination plan has been made available for the first time to retailers by six companies, all home fashions divisions of Burlington Industries, who combined their efforts to coordinate the textiles. There is also easy-care propaganda — the brightest-hued nylon rug can be .washed on the floor with an ordinary floor mop. Interior designer Patricia Harvey illustrated the compatibility of the colors by whipping up some luscious room settings with flamenco (red), emeraldo (green), mango (orange), marino (blue) and dorado (yellow). All the yummy colors, even the brightest South American hues may be used in the home, even though grubby little hands and muddy feet inhabit the house, she explains. In a foyer, she used a dirt-repellant (Scotch-guard) red - and- white striped mattress ticking on the wall, a flamenco nylon rug (mop-washable) on the floor and she covered a tired lamp base and shade with red washable vinyl. The one chair in the area had a black - and - white zebra striped cushion in a special plush washable fabric. In a library area she placed green-gray bookshelves of simulated bamboo of her own design against a wall background of a wide • striped yellow and white fabric. The stripes were striated with lurex. She used a yellow nylon rug on the floor and a narrow stripe mattress ticking of I the same yellow in a diagonal COLOR-COORDINATED ROOM — Fabric behind the simulated bamboo bookcases is in yellow and white stripes. Matching stripes, more narrow, also appear on the yellow gold draperies and vinyl shade. The chair is upholstered in yellow vinyl and the carpet is a mop-washable yellow nylon. stripe as a border for the vinyl window shade and the draperies. A lounge chair was in yellow vinyl. "Here's a sunny, cheerful room for a man. He can kick his shoes off and practice his golfing shots if he likes, without worrying abou soiling anything," says Miss Har vey.
