June Reports February Month of Workshops BY JUNE STEINBORN Extension Home Economist The month of February brings us to the Drapery Workshops. This is a sign-up class for two afternoons. We will construct a small sample lined draper with French pleats. (Now don't expect your husbands to cut a new window in your house to match the sample you will make.) If you call the Extension office, a letter will be sent to you listing the things you need for class. The dates are: Tuesday, Feb. 6, and Thursday, Feb. 8 - 1:30 p.m., Spirit Lake Extension office. Monday, Feb. 12, and Wednesday, Feb. 14 - 1:30 p.m., DEK building in Estherville. It's always a fun class — besides, think of the money you can save in decorating your home. EVERYONE B WELCOME ELIZABETH MARTYR AND I were invited to Armstrong last week to talk to a group very interested in starting "Meals on Wheels" in their town. Such a pleasant afternoon — we surely hope they can carry out their plans' soon all towns will be enjoying this fine service. This program is very close to my heart. Do you realize what a godsend it is to our shut- ins? It often means the difference between remaining in their own homes or moving to a nursing home. This is a nonprofit organization depending a great deal on contributions from churches, organizations and individuals. Have you offered your services? Here is a means by which you can really contribute. Have you ever delivered the Meals? It will be a most rewarding experience. Remember, "Do unto others" — besides, one of these days you may want those good meals delivered to you! SAD BUT TRUE: Car owners will verify that it costs a great deal of money to operate a car. But a late government report points out that it costs even more money than you think. A standard size automobile takes about 14 cents out of you pocket for every mile you drive. A compact car demands a little more than 10 cents. Depreciation POLLY'S POINTERS How Can Kids, Cats Use Same Sandbox? By POLLY CRAMER rrx'^is Polly's Problem .;; DEAR POLLY—I live on a farm with three preschool children, a sandbox and five cats. Unfortunately the cats are "using" the sandbox so I am afraid to let the kids play in it for fear of worms. Please, someone tell me what I can do about this problem. The kids love the sand and we want to keep the cats as they keep the mice and rats under control.—KAY DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the people who make "invisible" zippers. I do wish they would come up with a neutral-colored tab so a single zipper could be used on practically any garment. The zipper itself is invisible so the colored tab is the only reason one is unable to reuse a perfectly good zipper ,rr -MAY .., „ , ; ...^ DEAR POLLY—Regarding. Ruby's, \etter concerning, ; locked churches—I agree this is a deplorable situation that they have to be kept locked. I am a church secretary and also am interested in visiting different churches and cathedrals. In past years our church was always open during the daytime, but because of vandalism, petty stealing and just plain mischief causing extensive damage, we have been forced to lock our doors. Our church is kept open during the morning hours when the custodians are there but otherwise we are forced to lock the doors. Most of the trouble is caused by teen-agers and even younger boys. Until this type of thing stops I can see no other answer to the problem. It would, indeed, be a wonderful thing to be known as a nation of churches so we should all try to help with our influence on our own children.—RUTH DEAR GIRLS—Among the many letters received concerning the necessity for locking church doors one from Mrs. R. L. C. ended as follows: "Until we have better be­ haviour from some of our citizens and more respect for the property of others this situation will remain." —POLLY DEAR POLLY—At one time or another we are all confronted with the problem of what to do with wet soiled facial tissues when no waste basket is convenient and we are out in public. I always carry a plastic sandwich bag in my purse and used tissues are slipped into the bag. This is great for church, etc.— GENEVA DEAR POLLY—For over 50 years I saved so much darning of socks by rubbing a piece of paraffin wax over the toes and heels of all socks just after each washing. The shoes rub the wax instead of the socks and my husband wore socks for a year or two without getting holes. —MRS. S. E. THE 10CKH0RNS "THI5 16 WORSE THAN THE STUFF I SET AT HOME J« i "OH YM. LB ROY HAS A FAMTA6TIC 6EN6E OF HOW*. YOU 6H00L0 HAVE" HfiARP THE PROM 1666 Hf MACE 6BF0RB WE WERE MARRI6P." is the biggest cost item. Gas is third. Anyone for a bicycle? CONSUMER RIGHTS B NO " JOHNNY— COME— LATELY." Way back in 1481 when Louis XI was king he didn't put up with any hanky-panky, I can tell you. In 1481 his edict was explicit about the punishment to be meted out to butter merchants who weighted their goods: "Anyone who sells butter containing stones or other things (to add to the weight) will be put into our pillory; then the said butter will be placed on his head and left until entirely melted by the sun. Dogs may come and lick him and people offend him with whatever defamatory epithets they please without offense to God or the King. If the sun is not hot enough, the accused will be exposed in the great hall of the gaol in front of a roaring fire where everyone will be able to see him." (Maybe'a little drastic but I'll bet there weren't any rocks in his butter the next time.) SHADES OF RALPH NADER!

The Hong Kong Look Knits Shimmer from Day into Night By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK—(NEA)—Designers in Hong Kong are now completing their fashion collections for the Sixth Annual Ready-to-Wear Festival to be held in the colony this March. Knitwear, a big part of this fashion extravaganza, will take on a fresh look this time, featuring shimmering, luxurious Lurex. Lurex hit the world when internationally renowned designers like Yves Saint Laurent and other Paris and New -York fashion greats used the fabric in everything from sweaters to evening gowns — for it is cool and soft for day wear, elegant and sensuous for night life. Hong Kong designers are fashioning Lurex in skinny, ribbed tops, knit cardigans with matching pants, palazzo suits for lounging and formal gowns — all in a kaleidoscope of colors. One new fashion trick is to use Lurex in an interwoven pattern on the cuffs and necklines of knitted tops. Another design has it woven as elbow patches and pockets.

Fashion> trends have confirmed that what's good for the goose is Siten good for the gander. And it works the other way, too. Since dungarees and work- shirts have made it big with both sexes on the streets, skiwear designers are introducing new fabrics and styles that will go the same route on the slopes. A Western influence has been galloping onto the ski scene in the form of farmer's overalls, dungarees and bandanna scarves — the everyday streetwear variety. This ^SmVWWeac designer* art ...transuding the trendjor, the slopes and you'll see parkas that look like Wrangler jackets, ski pants with a jeans cut, insulated workshirts and "warmeralls" that are really work overalls adapted to the skier. Look for cotton as the big fabric flash on the mountain. Even madras has been revived for use in parkas, windshirts and warm - up Personal Mention Visits Smith Home pants. Bogner has designed a reversible shirt-jacket for both sexes—one side quilted madras the other side nylon. 1 The ladies 1 version has „ai , matching warm-up pant. . Even ski manufacturers are making his-hers models that offer their best per-; formance levels to each while accommodating their individual needs in a ski. Hart's Queen model, for example, is lightweight, easily maneuvered and dependable in various conditions. The King is fast, responsive to subtle commands of more aggressive recreational skiers. A Competition model for either a man or woman gives high performance to any skier who skis for more than just the fun of it.

Over the past few years fashion has become a very important factor in the design of children's wear. No longer is demand geared predominantly to monocolored jeans or plain cotton dresses. And it is expected that in this year's festival ap­ pliques, embroideries and a play of prints and accessories will add cheerful notes to simple basic cuts. The enthusiasm and excitement generated at the pret-a-porter showings by the Hong Kong designers is expected to carry over into the Ready-to-Wear Festival— the major fashion show held in Asia.
