Study Club Sponsoring Local Poetry Contest ARMSTRONG - Wednesday Study Club is sponsoring a poetry contest on the local level in conjunction with the Iowa Poetry Day Assn. contest. Mrs. Leslie Lewis, substitute teacher at Armstrong, will judge the entries. She is in charge of the local competition in cooperation with Mrs. Jo Ashmore, representing the Wednesday Study Club. Prizes will be awarded three top winners and winners at each grade level will receive certificates. All poems entered will be entered in the state Iowa Poetry Day Assn. contest and winning entries of the state contest will be published. In the local contest, original poetry may be entered by students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Any subject or poetry form may be used. The line limit is 16, but the work can be of fewer lines. Feb. 15 is the deadline for submission of entries. Poetry will be judged on "poetic quality — thought, meaning, mechanics to some extent, feeling and appropriateness," according to Mrs. Lewis. This is the second year that Armstrong students have entered the state contest. In 1972, two Armstrong students, Lorna Cheever and Jay Richmond, were winners. New Trend Adds Hats for Accent To Conservative Spring Wardrobes By ANN HENCKEN (Associated Press Writer) NEW YORK (AP) - Hat designers say the hat is bound to be an important accent as fashions reflect a more serene and conservative style for spring. "The designers wanted a definite statement in hats because the clothes were so understated. You couldn't tell if they were catalogue or couture, without the proper accessories," said Frank Olive, hat designer who worked with designers like Coty-award winning John Anthony to coordinate his hats. It's the return of the Great Gatsby era, for the coming season, said Olive, echoing an already-popular theme for spring. "Our life style is similar to the Gatsby era—in the classic wide-brimmed hats, the turban, the small-fitting cloches. There are baggier pants, both chunky and sensitive heels, crepe du chines, and the tennis visor," said Olive, who showed his hats at the Millinery Institute of America's presentation on Thursday. Last year's funky colors, such as dark raisin and puce, have turned soft and light-spirited. A pale lime green hat with roll brim was offered by Albrizio. Mr. Martin showed a "strawberries in the snow" version of the floppy gingham sport look. The felt hat is bigger this year, as it is a good year-round bet. Try a small "peach melba" felt hat with a conservative suit, which is a strong idea for spring. Or wear it with a matching peach dress. Olive suggested a large- brimmed hat with palazzo pants or with a pleated skirt and cardi- POLLY'S POINTERS How About Two Sets of Sleeves for a Dress By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—When I buy material for a dress I get enough extra so I can make two sets of sleeves. This is especially good with double knits. For the summer I sew in the pair of short sleeves and when fall comes they are ripped out and the long ones set in. 1 get twice the wear out of a dress when it has the two pairs of sleeves.—MRS. J. W. H. Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY—I would appreciate it if some s reader could tell me how to remove a wax buildup from the good quality vinyl tile floor in my kitchen i and family room. I have tried everything 1 know but with no success.—MRS. J. M. B. DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with the newspaper and magazine mailing labels marked with an undecipherable code instead of showing a readable expiration date. —MARGARET DEAR POLLY—1 am answering B. M. K. who has a swarm of bees in her backyard barbecue. My mother had this same problem and she called a local bee keeper who came and took away the queen bee. Soon after, all the others left to find the queen and never returned. —LINDA H. DEAR READERS—Most of the answers received for B. M. K. gave methods for coping with bees indoors. I was advised that the remedies used indoors where fumes are retained, are lost when used outdoors. However, one suggestion given me was to leave them alone and they will freeze during the winter months. Also, if using Linda's Pointer, the bee keeper should take away all the bees while he is there.—POLLY DEAR POLLY—My girl friend's baby was so often wakened from her nap by friends and neighbors ringing the door bell that this resulted in a fussy baby. To help her solve her problem I embroidered a simple white cloth sign that had a few flowers around "Please knock. Baby is asleep." The words were done in alternating bright colors. This was tacked to a stiff cardboard, a hole made in each coiner and a long double tie of embroidery floss put through the holes so it could be hung near the door bell. This offends no one, really works and more importantly, baby gets his rest.—BONNIE gan. Jack McConnell offered a dramatic double-brimmed black and white straw hat in this style. The turban may be the most versatile of all, as it's good for evening, the slinky sweater look or suits, said Olive, whose hats are priced from $9 to $40. "It's the most imaginative but the most disciplined look," he said, adding that the turban looks either great or disastrous, depending on how carefully it is placed on the head. He showed a white organza turban, set with a bunch of gardenias in back. When flowers are used, it,, is in a sparing way. Roses and lilacs cascade from one side of a yellow and white straw, by Mr. John Jr. The hats were shown as part of the New York Couture Business Council's national press week. Air Pollution Disintegrates Your Nylons ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Cats' claws, splintery chairs, burning cigarettes and eager dogs all represent a threat to nylon stockings. So does air po'lution. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation found that sample stockings and pantyhose disintegrated from acidic soot in the air. A principal villain is exhaust fumes from automobiles. "Never, never stand in back of your automobile exhaust pipe when the engine is on" was the researchers' advice to be stock inged females. Five years of deterioration testing in New York communities determined the worst places to wear stockings and probably the best to own hosiery stores were Brooklyn and North Pearl Street in downtown Albany. The Environmental Conservation department also noted that "severe nylon deterioration" of items besides stockings had been reported aboard ships and inland.throughout the United States, Canada and England.
