TURKEY SUPPER AND BAZAAR Wed., Nov. 1,2th nt Faith Lutheran Church Isabella and Kensington Ave. Baznar Opens nt 10 O'Clock TURKEY SUPPER Served From 5 to 7_ Adults $1.25 — Children 60c NOW IS THE TIME TO CLEAN LAST SUMMER'S THINGS By Hobart Laur aKd Cyril Roth It's just plain cussidness — "human nature," if you want! to call it that — but most of us are careless when it comes to cleaning a garment after we're through wearing it for a season. Last summer's clothes by the dozen are hanging right now in many closets. Any suits, dresses or shirts in your closet that haven't been worn since last summer? Now is the time to clean them. They should have, of course, been cleaned last year when you were through with them. Then wrapped to keep dust off. They'd be ready to wear and less deteriorated tpo. So before telling you how to clean last summer's things, may we recommend you bring this winter 's clothes to us and have them cleaned before you put them away for the summer? And when it comes to dry cleaning of last summer's clothes, we recommend you bring them to,us. Tell us that the garment hasn't been cleaned since last summer. That way we'll take the necessary corrective steps to put it back fn shape. To do it yourself—even if you wanted to—would require too lengthy a technical explanation. But if the garment can be "wet cleaned," that is, washed, and you want to do it yourself—these suggestions will be helpful to you. 1. Measure the garment thoroughly. Soak in soft water made mildly alkaline. Wash by hand in good neutral soap solution which will lather up well during hand rubbing. Be sure temperatures of water is not more than 100 degrees F. Next, flush thoroughly to insure removing all perspirations. Now rinse in clean soft water at least 5 or 6 times. 2. 3. 4. .5. 6. Finally, stretch to correct dimensions and allow to dry. Any way to you look at it, it's a lot of work, isn't it? So why not avoid all that and bring both this past season's things as well as last summer's clothes right now, and let us do it for you?

Vernon and Phyllis Irene Hartley, Scheller. Stanley William Guth and Erma Lee Beaver, both of Evansville, Ind. Wife Is One Who Must Tell Husband to Act His Own Age Know what your chances are of some day being a widow? According to government statistics, between the ages of 45 and 54, about one woman in eight is widowed. Between 55 and 64 it jumps to about one in four. And by 70 every other woman is a widow. In past columns I have told women that one way of holding onto their men was to take better care of them, and even listed ways In which they might help their husbands to avoid the wear and tear worry and financial pressure that get so many men before their time. But many wives arc up against a tough proposition when it comes to safeguarding the health of their husbands. Men resent any Inference that they are at an age where they have to start taking better care of themselves. Let Mama protest that Papa hasn't any business playing football with the kids and Papa may be determined to prove to the whole family that he Isn't too old to show the kids a trick or two about tackling. May Resist Stubbornly Lot Mama try to Influence his eating habits and she is likely to meet with stubborn opposition. Let her insist on hiring someone to put up the storm windows or mend the roof, and he is likely to tell her "Quit trying to make an old man out of me. So It's a ticklish job trying to get a middle-aged man to slow up a little without arousing his antagonism. After all, the girls in the office make him feel young and in his prime. That's the one sure way of getting along with a middle-aged man. ' So the wife who loves her hus band, who knows he ought to start taking it easy, that he ought to have regular medical checkups, etc., Is really in a tough spot. For she Is the only one who thinks enough of her man to tell him the truth for his own good. That he Is getting older, and that if he wants to stay around to a ripe old age, he'll have to start acting his age, instead of kidding himself that he is still a young man. SCHOOL MAN DIES By Al»ocl«t«d Pr.l. ANNA 111.—Kenneth M. Jobe, 45, retired superintendent of Anna schools, died Saturday. He retired in June because of illness. Burial was at Marion, 111., today. One of the features of the open house at Mt. Vernon high school tonight is a show which has been prepared to give the nublic a sample of the "thing to come" when they see the operetta at the high school on either Thursday or Friday night. The show will introduce the entire cast of "New Moon" and interview the majority of them. The chorus and orchestra will assist several of the soloists in presenting a preview of the music. Needless to say it would be impossible to present anything that resembles a complete show because copyright materials such as these arc restricted to paid performances suhiect to royalty. Hence the east will be "intended" and several will ing, said operetta director W. H. Beckmeyer. Members of the cast both singing and speaking are as follows: Shirley Nolta and Harold Wil- llnms share the responsibility of leads with Janet Clark, Margie Howard, and Roger Cowen playing a comic trilogy. Anthony Thompson, Jack Fitzjerrells, Jerry Wolfe, Jerry Latta, Tommy Johnson, Robert Krobs, Eddie Ryder, Sue Dahler, round out the mnjor parts of the cast. Several bit parts all contribute to the story. The time of the show is 1791 and the colonial dress gives much color opportunity to the costuming. The costumes were rented in part from a costumer in St. Louis. The story takes place in Now Orleans. On board "The New Moon," on the isle of Pines. Although the show is only two acts it contains several scenes in each act. Several clever dances will bo a part of the show as they have come to be in the past few years, and the costuming for these are to be created by local people, who are taking more than a little bit of interest in the show. The story follows the pattern that many shows of its period followed: The hero must for one reason or another escape, so he sells himsell as a bondservant. He falls in love with his Mistress after many exasperating events take place and when it is finally revealed the circumstances are such that they be married although it has been impossible because of different stations in life up to that point. "In a sense this play introduces us into the "who done it" type of show in that it involved a spy and a detective. A battle between the pirates and the sailors of "The New Moon," the mistaken identity of a young lady of rank, and the final "all ends well" make this story follow a pattern many times used," said Beckmeyer. Tickets have been on sale for about a week by music students of the high school. However, the advance sale must close with Wednesday afternoon as a deadline. After that time tickets may be obtained at the reservations box office In the high school auditorium between 2:45 and 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
