From a variety 'of textie authorities comes word that wash and wear is a reality for many cottons and synthetic fabrics. This •mearas BO ironing—not even that touoh-up we've been used to giving the wash and wears in the last few years. .

A century-old shirt manufacturing finm said ironing of shirts be a "lost art" in 10 years.' A spokesman for Dan, Biver MiSs said wash and wear, wiil be a "parmaneot thing" in five years.

Fabric combinations included or- lon-cotton, dacron-cotton, dacron- rayon, and dacron-orlon. .

He told the National Association of Retsal Clothiers and fur-, nishers that by spring, 30 to 50' per cent of his company's line will be in the -no-iroD category. .'"'""" "About 80 per cent of our dress goods and shirtings are wash- wear," said Harry Ferguson, president in change of. merohaiK' dising and sales at Dan River Miils, one of the big all - cotton ^ firms. "In a year's time, : it wHT be 100 per cent. Wash' and wear will be ,a permanent thing in five years." The no-iron finish on cottons is applied by, chemical process, in which the fiber is impregnated with a resin.'-The method got going right after World War IT.and now the finishes wffl "last the life: of fihi> garment, if applied proper-'" ]y," said Ernest Stewart of the National Cotton Council.

Gilbert said a ^1956 moratorium allowed the brotherhood to use the 1957 increase for wages or the establishment of a h e alth program. Gilbert said the chairman decided to delay the health plan until 1958 to prepare a more com- bers and their families and to include engineer members not working under a firemen union eon- tract. 60,000 Affected What would happen to the hus-j prehe:ns j ve plan for ^on mem . tling trade between Yugoslavia - - - - • • and West Germany, amounting to 100 million dollars a year, remained to be seen. Both Von Brentano: and Kveder said the question of economic relations remains Vide open. West German industrialists op- 'posed & break, fearing, a loss 01 income. The average Yugoslav worried that otherwise scarce consumer goods, bought by large credits from West Germany, might vanish from shops. Yugoslavia also wondered how the rupture will .affect the profitable tourist trade. West German tourists, are the, most numerous visitors to Yugoslavia. West Germany appeared in no mood to halt its payment of war reparations to Yugoslavia. This is in the form of a 67 million dollar long-term loan, interest free.

Quart el In Home; lather Wings Son CHICAGO W-A quarrel over sale of a family home erupted in gunfire Saturday, and police said Frank Kane, 64, wounded his son five times. The son, Joseph Kane, 31, of suburban-Oak Park, was reported in fair condition at an Oak Park hospital.

Gilbert said the decision to use the 1957 increase for wages, could result in pay boosts of Ifi cents an hour because of a cost-of-living adjustment in the contract. He said if the September consumer's price index exceeds 121.0 it will mean an additional 5-cent an hour boost. The August index was 121.0. Gilbert termed the chairmen's decision to set up a health program, paved the way for one of the most progressive, nationwide health and 4 medical plans in the country. •' . "We hope to provide our members and their families with the best health and medical plan available on a national basis. We anticipate our program will be a leader in its field," he added. Union negotiators will meet next week in Chicago with railroad representatives to work out the program, Gilbert said. The union head said the proposed plan included non-cancellable protection, full hospital coverage, expanded outpatient benefits and allowances for medical • surgical care.

The suggestion was made to the American Psychiatric Assn. by three doctors whose investigation showed that one of the most widely-used of the drugs had very little effect on extremely untranquil pa- iicnts in'English mental 'hospitals. Their -results were-so completely opposed to .'the results of many American investigations of the same drug in American \patients that some sort of an explanation was very muoh in order. And so they suggested one. .The drug is reserpine which was the original "tranquilizer." Its 'main effect" on mental .patients "seemed" to the British scientists to tie not on the symptoms- of the mental disease but 'on the symptoms which arise as a direct result of the conditions which are imposed on psychotic patients- overcrowded and locked wards.

Charles P. Gore, George P. Egan, and Donald Walton. "In short, we are not convinced that resenpine or any other drug currently .available can take the place of an enlightened approach to the care of these patients." In Britain, they said, mental hospitals are smaller. Locked and overcrowded wards do exist but " 'maximum security' wards are unknown, and there is a growing tendency to abolish all locked wards." They cited a British study which showed that "the unlocking of wards produces results as gratifying and dramatic as'those attributed 'to reserpine." ->-Their' main investigation was with 20 "chronic, intractable" schizophrenics who were "exceptionally difficult nursing problems." Ten were .dosed daily with reserpine, and the other ten with an inert but identical - appearing pill; Later the first ten got the dummy pills and the second ten got the reserpine; Thus, there were "controls."

In 16 of the 20 there were no. changes in behavior; "four showed slight but definite improvement.", They also tried reserpine in 34 "incurable" schizophrenics. In 21 there was no behavioral change, four were "slightly worse," eight were slightly-improved, and one greatly improved —. but his history showed that he had 'had previous periods of improvement without benefit of any drug. In 'both groups, alarming heart reactions developed. "On the basis of our findings it seems to us that reserpine is in no way curative,.and 'has only a limited j-ole to play in psychiatry," they reported to their American colleagues. "Nor should it be overlooked that it is a dangerous drug and may cause depression of suicidal intensity and even cardiac failure -due to water retention though given in small doses." MARY HOSFORD LANDS FIRST ROLE, DIVORCE AND PUBLISHER HOLLYWOOD —(NBA) — Hollywood, land of make-believe, has learned to steel itself for the surprises reality brings to its doors. But "The Lady From Arizona" is a surprise package unique even in Movietown. Hollywood's still nonplussed about her. First of all, attractive 31-year- old Mary Louise Hosford, who is the lady from Arizona and the mother of four young children, landed a starring role in a movie without any. previous professional experience. Then she announced she was divorcing her husband, wealthy Frank .Hosford of Phoenix, Ariz. A few days, later, multi-millionaire industrialist-sportsman C. V. Whitney, the movie producer who discovered her, announced he was divorcing his "long-estranged wife" to marry Mary. Hollywood was still blinking about it all whe'n'Mary announced she could also cook— that she had written a cookbook, "The Mary Hosford -Cookbook,", which combined her favorite recipes with little anecdotes about her life. Maybe even with a chapter, I hope, about "how to cook up" a career. CONSIDERING her movie stardom and her forthcoming marriage to Whitney her cookbook, now making the rounds of New York publishers, may become a bestseller. I'll get to Mary's cookbook, a typewritten copy of which is on my desk, but first I want vou to meet Mary. She's only 5 ( feet -3% inches tall and weighs 105 pounds. But she has "more energy than an 'A-bomb. There's ash blonde hair, ing smile.' Real name is Mary Louise Schroeder, and she's from Kansas City, Mo., the daughter. of a wealthy, cattle-raising family. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a drama degree and played records as a disc-jockey during World War H on a Kansas City station. Then she went to New York to write and, 10 years ago, married Frank Hosford, who is in the insurance business in Phoenix and has a few nice oil wells. She then, became the mother of M'lou, 8; Hobby, 6; Hank ; 5, and Heather, 2. SIX YEARS AGO the Hosfords moved from Greenwich, Conn., to a luxurious and imposing home in Scottsdale, a swank Phoenix suburb. Despite four children, Mary had time to conduct a five-days- a-week TV program in Phoenix for a six-month period, and later to work as a real estate saleswoman for the Ed Post Realty Co. in Scottsdale. One night Producer Whitney was dining with friends at the Backstage Club in Phoenix when Mary walked into the room. Whitney asked who she was and a mutual friend introduced them. "Our parties joined," Whitney tells it, "and I discussed a role in "The Missouri Traveler" with her. .1 then phoned Jim Ryan, my casting director, to say that I had found the right girl for the part". AND .NOW, after thumbing through Mary's cookbook, I can tell you she can whip up a jellied clam madrilene, or a beef par- migiano and, like Max Lief says in the book's foreword, "I have no doubt that Mary has been Around the World in eighty souffles." ' - x There are "Pancakes a la Hoi- stein," "Jane's Burnt Sugar Cake," "Billy's Favorite Ca.sse- role," "Spaghetti a la Missouri," "Grandmother Hebel's Sauerkraut" and other folksy dishes in socialite Mary's cookbook, . But after listening to a friend tell about a cake baked by Mary I'm afraid ket. we can't let "folksy" cover all of her recipes. The cake, it was out of this world and ? our friend consumed half of it all. by himself. "So why didn't you take home the recipe?" I asked him. "Listen," he said, "I'm not taking THAT recipe home. My wife can't afford THAT many eggs." 10-3-57 .Hospital Notes MEMORIAL Born to Mr. and Mrs. Wendell-" Plum, Flora, a son. •;' Mr. and Mrs. James Beamer, route 5, are parents of a daugh-, ter.
