Your laundry can handle more POUNDS of work -when bundles are larger-- tut there is a limit to how many bundles they can handle. You see, it takes just as much tame to perform some operations-and nearly as much time for others -- on a small washing as on a large one. Maybe you did not know that YOUR family washing is handled all through the laundry as a sepa- rata unit -- that it is sorted into various kinds and colors for washing -- then dried separately, and . ironed as a separate unit -- the flatwork by one crew of ironers -- the wearing apparel by another crew-and finally assembled. · Sight now there is a. shortage 01 workers in the laundry -- just as there is everywhere else. You can help to ease this difficulty by one simple, easy act of cooperation. Send every two weeks -- NOT every week -- and we'll all get better service -- also a few families not now getting service at all can be accommodated. -- Aunt Kat Sponsored by Wedding Anniversary Observed at Party Mr. and Mrs. H.

You'll see rayons, for instance; of a tensile strength like steel, Some will be as sheer as chiffon, printed in lovely multicolor floral designs, yet as tough as parachute fabric. Others will be handsome, rugged materials made of the rayon that now goes into bomber tires. , Postwar rayons will appear in new guises, too, such as floor coverings, upholstery, linings and industrial fabrics where sturdy wearing quality are necessary. Even during the war we have seen the astonishing range of textures' which can be achieved by the use of rayon yarns--fabrics ranging from handsome tweeds, worsteds, gabardines and flannels to linen-like weaves, sheer voiles, chiffons and velvets. Now manufacturers are concentrating on better construction for post ward fabrics. Technically this means more weight, increased twist, stabilization of shrinkage and controlling of stretch.' Numerous new finishes have been developed in rayons for war purposes, especially in connection with water resistance. One development introduces an entirely new material -- a laminated construction of synthetic fibers and plastics, destined for wide use in civilian rainwear apparel after the war. Already on -the 1 market, and available in spring garments which will reach the stores within the next few weeks, is a new "miracle rayon" which doesn't fade, doesn't'rot, dries quickly, is crease - resistant, and can be washed and ironed so its makers tell us, as easily as cotton. Developed by Ponemah, the new fabric is being used in children's garments, lingerie; play clothes, swim suits and high styles dresses for day and evening wear. For most of the other new developments in rayon, however, we will have to wait until after the war. For the present, textile people paint a gloomy picture, warning that the nation is faced "with an acute fabric shortage for the next 6 months. This is -due not only to in-i creased. demands for cottons, wools, and rayons for military needs.^but also to such factors as relief programs for liberated countries, a 5 per cent lower production rate of textiles in 1944 than in 1943 and gradual disappearance of reserve f a b r i c stocks. So if you can't find that fabric you want for your new spring dress, just remind yourself that it has gone into a bomber tire or a parachute. And dwell on the wonders to come--after the war.

Norwegian Girls Serve on Tanker AP Newsfeatures Baltimore--Girls in the galley, posies in the portholes and women on the wireless don't make the crewmen of one Norwegian oil tanker quail--they like 'em. ' In fact, all the men, including their skipper, Capt. Rolf Larsen, a Norwegian merchant mariner for 40 years, take for granted--and actually praise--their petticoat · colleagues: When their vessel put out to sea recently from Baltimore, there were no cries for an albatross as blond, blue-eyed Elsa Greaker, also Norwegian, began her 2nd voyage as the ship's stewardess and Mrs. Mary Milne, widow of a Canadian soldier, signed up as wireless operator. Exotic ports around the world are familiar names to Elsa, who has been going to sea ever since she was 18 when her -father, a ship captain now living near Oslo, helped her get her first job on a passenger line.. . But this is the first voyage--and her first wireless job--for Mrs. Milne whose husband was killed . in France on Oct. 1. Even Chief Steward Mauritz Mathison, of Nottoro, Norway, admits that Elsa holds sway in the ; galley. "Why shouldn't I admit it?" was his cryptic comment. Stewardess Greaker was particularly anxious to begin the present trip, since she hopes to meet her husband, a 2nd mate with the Norwegian merchant marine, whom she has not seen iri 9 months. They have a 6 months old son' whom papa has not yet met and who stays with friends when mama sets sail. Captain Ijarsen, whose vessel 'was in at the Maryland drydock for overhauling, admitted it was the manpower shortage which led him to hire a female stewardess in the first place--but, he says: "Elsa can do the job better than any man. As for courage . . . that girl doesn't have any nerves." "Oh one of our convoy trips a munitions ship was hit. The concussions from the explosion were so great that everything in this cabin was thrown out of place. I walked outside and found Elsa calmly standing on the lower bridge watching the show. ."When I suggested she come inside, she said, 'If the boys can stand out here, I can' too.'
