IIOMEMAKERS INDICATE BLOUSE PREFERENCES Many a beautiful blouse has come home from the store only to. baffle its owner when she wants to launder it. Realizing that this is a common problem, more than 2.800 American homemakers recently went on record asking that all commercially made blouses carry directions for laundering or cleaning. They want to know if the blouses are colorfast and whether or not they are preshrunk. These facts were among the many brought to light in another "Consumer Speaks" project carried out throughout the nation by homemakers themselves. More than 170 different blouse features were reviewed and discussed by consumer groups in 22 states. Information on labels, design and fit workmanship and materials was considered. In talking over medium-priced cotton and rayon blouses—types which most homemakers buy for themselves or for their daughters—the women emphasized the need for blouses constructed with durable, well-finished seams. The "Consumer Speaks" project is giving homemakers all over the country an opportunity to express their preferences about some of the things they buy. It is sponsored by the American Home Economics Association. Operetta By Grades To be Given March 19 Rehearsals were begun last week on the operetta, "Rumplestiltskin," to be presented by the third, fourth and fifth grades in the high school gymnasium Friday, March 19. ( Tryouts have been completed and the following people were selected for the solo roles: Francis Nelson, fifth grader, will play the part of the Royal King. The miller, proud jot his beautiful daughter, will be played by Jack Jarmes, also in the fifth grade. Gretchen Palas, fourth grade, will be the miller's daughter who is talented and clever at spinning as well as beautiful! \ The nurse to the Most Royal. Princess, will be Judy Gregg. Jack Backhaus of the fourth grade, was chosen to play the role of Rumplestiltskin the crafty little gnome. The Littlest Page, who discovers the ugly little gnome's secret, is John Falb, a third grader." Fritz Palas will be narrator. The chorus will be made up of fifth graders during the first- act; the girls portraying villagers who have come to market to do their shopping, and the boys representing the marketers. The "king's own pages" will be Robert Schroe der and Jerry Gulsvig; the guards, Eugene Winter and Kenneth Brain aid. The fourth graders will be the queen's attendants and guards in act two. Thq gnomes who come with Rumplestiltskin to claim the princess will be the third graders. The operetta, by Berta Elsmith, is an adaptation of the familiar fairy tale known and loved by children everywhere. Iri the performance of this operetta the children are receiving an opportunity to learn new skills, to learn the neglected art of ease before an audi ence. They are given an opportunity to express themselves in their own way, for this operetta is their very own production. They are busy now not only learning their songs for the operetta, but are hard at work, building scenery, making costumes and preparing publicity. The result will be their very own, and it will be a production no one will want to miss. Robert Krambeer of Luana and Miss Doris Allred were entertained at dinner Sunday in the Mr. and Mrs. Howard Gordanier home. Housecoats, brunch coats and pajamas are some items that call for good construction because of the wear they receive. French or flat- fell seams finish such garments on the wrong side as well as the right side.
