If you are, you are a member of a much abused minority. The left-handed person Is forced into living in a world fashioned for right-handed people. Among the worst offenders are the kitchen and household utensils. Irons and potato- peelers have for long been a handicap for left-handers.

When used, it hangs towards the person, and gets in the way. Other items in the kitchen which are made for right- handers are as follows: sink- units, oven doors, refrigerator handles, and Ironing boards. Public telephone receivers are on the left on the box. When picking up the receiver with his left hand the right- handed person has his right hand free for dialing and inserting money. These simple actions the left-hander learns to do, but when it comes to writing down numbers or messages, he must hold his right hand across his body while trying to write with his left hand. Even though history has given the right hand preference, it is estimated that there are between one and two hundred million people who are originally left-handed. Among the more famous left-handers are: Babe Ruth, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Jack the Ripper, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Har- po Marx, and Danny Kaye, Dawn Wichers, M-OC Junior, models the coat she made from fake fur. The coat was later entered in a national contest. legs Legs Wow! Is that short , or you can't wear that. What made you wear something like that? Many remarks have been said over the controversy of the short, long, or in-between look of today's fashions. Which one will stay? Dresses have always been known to be long. In the times of the Bible, the women wore dresses to the ground. To wear a short skirt would hatfe been sinnine and women could have been stoned to death. Today's women wear the maxi, which is a dress down to the ground. They are worn for leisure or for elegant occasions. Maxis usually come in handy during the winter season, when bare legs come in contact with the cold. As the hundreds of years have gone by, the dress seemed to crawl up the leg. In Dawn Receives Compliment on "Pony Hair" Coat Miss Dawn Wichers, junior student in Miss Van Amberg's Home-Ec III class, entered a coat she made in a coat sewing contest. The contest was sponsored by "What's New in Home Economics," a home economics club. Miss Van Amberg told Dawn about the contest. The coat was required to be made in fake fur. First of all, a description of the coat, a picture, and samples of material had to be sent in. Later, Miss Van Amberg received a letter saying she could send the coat in. The final decision was made on March 1. Dawn received a letter which complimenting her, said, "The coat was very well made." Any home-ec student under 18, who is a resident of the U.S., was eligible to enter the contest. The outside of Dawn's coat is a dark brown fur with a pony hair effect. The inside is lined with acrylic fur. She made the sleeves with milium. Her coat is mini-length with real leather bound, buttonholes. the 1940's and 50's the dress was at mid-calf. The women were starting to get a little more daring about showing their legs. Men were now starting to look at the legs. Today's look of the midcalf is the midi. The fashion designers think that this is the style that will stay and continue longer than the maxi or mini. This style is really going back to the old-fashioned ways and is really causing alarm among males. Women are debating this midi or stick the now look of the mini. The 'mini has hit! This short skirt has come and will not disappear for a while. Girls are really daring to wear this short of skirt. Just think how much leg is showing and how the guys really look at you now. Mini skirts and dresses are the number one selling garments. This goes to show that girls really don't want to go back to being old- fashioned. Which style will stay? It's all a question of time. Boy's prefer the mini over anything else. Some brave girls say the midi. Even some girls say the maxi. Who knows? The styles and fashions change so fast. Desingers may even turn out a skirt that looks like a maxi, but zips off to be a midi or mini. Mini, midi, or maxi, which one will it be? _ . supper guests at Pert Wlekamp home JUr, and Mrs. Gerrit "Pi Mr. and Mrs. Wal- tkamp of Sheldon, and J Mrs. Bill Wlekamp of uand Doug Top, child- J «r. and Mrs. Norlan P Bock Rapids, were •*" to Sunday guests ome of their grand..
