Concert Association Announces Program The Mt. Vernon Community Concert Association is now announcing its complete program for the 1952-53 concert season. Due to the fine response to the mem- INK STAINS By Hobort Laur and Cyril Roth Inks are dyes. The older style inks—and many present day inks as well—are of the iron tannate type. These were never easy to remove, since the very purpose of ink has always been to leave a permanent mark. Nevertheless, because of the uniformity of their content, these older inks were at least tractable in the hands of experienced spotters, and it was often possible to remove stains entirely. Nowadays, however, there are many kinds of new "inks." Various solvents, dyes, pigments and cleaning agents, and what not are used in an unending range of combinations, with the result that a spotter can never be sure what he's attacking. At the same time, nevertheless, there are several expedients that you might be able to remove the ink stain sooner, if you do the following: Place an old towel or a blotter under the stain. Keep spraying water oh the ink stain, removing excess moisture on the surface and frequently changing the absorbent material underneath. If this doesn't remove the stain, leave it alone, as it is undoubtedly an ink which requires special techniques, processes, and skills for removal. If it's a ball point pen ink stain, LEAVE IT ALONE. ABOVE ALL, DO NOT USE WATER ON IT, as water "sets" ball point inks and then they are impossible to remove. When you bring the garment in to us to be cleaned —and do it as soon after staining as you can—tell us about the stain and if you remember, let us know what brand of ink it was. This will help us to get the stain out and if it can be removed, we'll get it out for you. Whatever your cleaning, you'll always get a good job done when you BRING IT TO PEERLESS CLEANERS 1117 Broadway — Phone 207 bership drive held in September, the Association is to have four concerts this season instead of three as originally planned by the directors.

They must have electricity available right when we need it. And since it takes quite a while to build a power plant, the power people have to plan way ahead for new homes, new appliances, and new businesses that maybe haven't tyen been thought of yet.
