THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. three creases. Cut off along the lower crease, the point of wear. Seam the cut piece to the leg again, the seam taking out the worn line. Do not press seam open but press both sides of the seam toward the facing. Fold the cuff in place and baste so the new seam line is just Inside the trouser cuff. Turn down cuff and stitch on facing side, next to the new seam line. Stitch again to hold the top edge in place. Turn cuff up and tack at seams. Other methods include making a French cuff from the plain cuff, or making a cuffless hem. The Cuffless Trouser. Cuffless trousers: Open the hem and cut along the worn edge. Scam out the worn part as in the cuffed trousers and finish as before. Wear guards: Before trousers become worn along the leg edge, reinforce the inner side with a "wear guard" or "heel guard." Use heavy, matching mending, or pressing tape. This tape should be cut to be about % inch wide. Simply press the tape, which has a gummed back, within the pants leg, just above the lower edge. For detailed directions on other ways to repair worn trousers, for ways to renew entire suits, you may have the Iowa State College Extension bulletin, "Lengthening the Life of Men's Suits." Prepared by Elizabeth Peterson, extension clothing specialist, this bulletin is available free at the Extension Service, Iowa State College, Ames. FLAN A WORKROOM ON FIRST. A household workroom on the first floor will keep the heavy work out of the kitchen. Such a room could be used for laundering, canning, caring for meat, picking chickens and caring for the cream separator. PRODUCTION GOALS SET FOR IOWA BEEKEEPERS In v the first request •of its kind ever made, Iowa has been asked to increase its number of bee colonies 18 percent. This agricultural production gonl on bee colonics was established in a move to utilize the bees in crop pollination, especially in the production of legume seeds. F. D. Paddock, state apiarist, believes the Iowa increase will come largely from persons already engaged in handling bees. Tests made in Iowa in 1937 show that sweetclovcr seed production can be stepped up 300 percent by moving in bees for pollination. ORDER QUALITY CHICKS • NEED TO KEEP DUSTING FOR BEST PRODUCTION { CATTLE FOR GRUBS NOW When ordering your next chicks, remember that the quality stock you obtain can help you get more efficient production from your flock. As guldeposts to quality, four classifications—or stages—have been developed as part of the national poultry improvement plan. These four stages arc pullorum clean, pullorum passed, pullorum controlled and pullorum tested. Boyd Ivory, poultryman. at Iowa State College, says the pullorum clean stage indicates that flock from which the birds come hos been without reactors for two or more years. Pullor­ um passed means the flock has no reactors; controlled, less than two percent; and tested, less than five percent reactors. Two other classifications—U. S. Approved and U. S. Certified—refer to breeding improvement, with certified the better quality of the two. PAY DIRT. Six acres of ground in Kossuth county sold last week at $1,000 per acre; considered the top price thereabouts for land not located within the Algona city limits. Dairy cattle, beef cattle, shipped-in feeders or native steers—they all need to be treated with rotenone dust in the next few weeks if grub bumps show up on their backs. Southern Iowa farmers already have found grub warblers on their native cattle. But Harold Gunderson, entomologist at Iowa State College, says generally it's still loo early for the first grub treatment in northern Iowa on native cattle. Feeder cattle shipped into the state are showing grub bumps pretty generally, however. Gunderson points out the difference between treatment of dairy and beef cattle for grubs. Since beef cattle shouldn't be handled any more than necessary, the first treatment should be applied 25 days after the first bumps appear. And a second treatment should be made 30 days later. Because dairy cattle are in stanchions daily and are accustomed to being handled, they can be treated with rotenone whenever the bumps show up. The average farmer will make more money on his dairy herd if he breeds his dairy heifers at about 15 months. They'll calve at 24 months and start paying the fai^ner back for their feed. Towels and washcloths selected for children must meet special requirements If they are to offer best wear—firm weave, sturdy buns and selvages that can "take it."

Here's the story of a bath towel, what makes a good one absorbent and soft, yet firm, well-shaped and long- lived. It comes from Nora Workman, extension home furnishing specialist from Iowa Stale College. Good Buy. A "good buy" towel is one in which there is a compromise between the properties that enable it to absorb water and those that make up long wear. Loosely twisted yarns take up the most water; tightly twisted ones are the sturdiest. So, a towel in which the foundation cloth is firm will serve you best, while the absorbency may be slightly sacrificed unless made up for by high quality and nature of the "pile." i Turkish toweling is a terry fabric, a fabric in which loops are woven on J both sides of the cloth. The closer Ihe undcrweave, the more securely the pile yarns are held in place and, in general, the more pile yarns there are to a square inch. As these soft, loosely-twisted pile yarns are the yarns which do most of the drying job, you may think that the longer they are. the better. The Bureau of Home Economics says no: loops of about 1/8 inch seem to be the most desirable. Longer loops are likely to catch and pull out and thus lessen drying powder. Examine First. Look at the selvages on both sides of a bath towel before you buy. A good selvage is of firm weave in which every filling yarn wraps around the last, or end, wrap. Other finishes, lock-stitched edges, hemmed edges and poorly woven selvages result in pulling, shrinking or fraying. Hems should be \Hi to an Inch in width and the turn-back should be at least V* inch. You, as shopper, can discover this latter width by holding the towel up to the light. Hems should be well stitched and reinforced with additional stitch ing at the corners. When pastel colors attract you, remember to check on colorfastness, and remember that pink is pink for life, and that any bleoch strong enough to remove color, should you like to do so later, also would ruin the fabric. Corded and embroidered bathtowels are likely to pucker after a few washings. BURLING & PALAS ATTORNEYS-AT-LAW fee Over Postville State Bank LENGTHEN LIFE OF SUITS WITH SKILLFUL PATCHING |V.
