Take care, conserve and home-repair your "stretchees," say clothing specialists at Iowa State College. The reason —foundotion garments of natural rubber won't be back on the market much before another year. Of course, there's synthetic rubber (neoprene) aplenty. But production from it is now in a slump because of a rayon and cotton shortage. It's a vicious circle. They need the rayon and cotton to cover the rubber to make the garments to give women that streamlined look. So it definitely is repair and take care to make the stretch last as long os possible. As soon as a break appears, patch or darn it immediately. Be careful not to cut the rubber thread with the needle. Fine thread, too, will cut the rubber, so the coarser the mending thread, the better. Allow a ! Si-inch' margin around the spot you are mending. With a smaller margin, the mending will pull out and the hole grow larger. For long wear, wosh clothing such as foundation garments and suspenders, with mild soap and warm, not hot, water. Handle them gently, stretching the rubber as little as possible when it's wet. Rinse severol times to remove all traces of soap, os soap will cause rubber to deteriorate. Dry such garments in a cool, airy place away from stoves, radiators or sunlight. And It they should need ironing, keep the iron only moderately warm, using it as little as possible. To dry n girdle quickly, roll it in a dry towel to squeeze out the excess water. Roll it lengthwise so the,garters will not cut the body of the garment. Unroll it again and hong it up to finish drying. SCHOOL NEWS.

Amaryllis, perhaps the showiest of house plants that bloom between January ond May, needs a "cozy home," according to L. C. Grove, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. It should be planted in a pot only 1 to lVi inches wider than the diameter of the bulb. The mixture for potting should consist of 2 parts garden soil, 1 part leaf mold or peat moss and 1 part sand, plus 1 tablespoon of bonemeal for each quart of mixture. Place broken pottery in the bottom of the pot, to Insure a good drainage. Set the bulb in the soil so that about half of it appears above the soil level. Water well and set in a dark ploce about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. After about 7 weeks, during which the bulb should be watered about every 10 days, a flower stalk will appear. Set in light, ond when the plant is green, place in o sunny window. More water is now needed, as well as a weak fertilizer solution occasionally. Cut the stalk back after it blooms, and plunge the pot into a shaded outdoor border in May. In August, stop watering and feeding, and at the first light frost store the potted bulb in the basement, keeping rather dry. Start the plant's growth in early winter and repeat as above—to keep both you and the amaryllis happy. IT HAPPENED IN IOWA. Snakes aren't often found crawling around over the country during Iowa's winter weather, but R. A. Hanover, Gladbrook, found one in a pump house on December 31. Mr. Hanover ac- cidently stepped on the snake when he entered the dark building but thought nothing of it until his eyes became accustomed to the darkness. Mr. Hanover used a coal shovel to kill the three-foot bullsnake. Herald Want Ads bring results!
