Schneider VETERINARIAN No. no PostvtUe, Iowa In Iris Theatre BolWiag j er for spring and summer, skirts are not as long as the lengthy winter fashions, which never gained real popularity here in the Midwest. Skirts will reach to about mid-calf, Miss Rea states. Even though the trends is toward a flared skirt, if you look your best in a pencil slim skirt it's still a good style for you, she says. Coats this season are either flaring and loose or fitted. The coat flare, too, is being modified, and hoods have had their day. Jackets for spring are shorter and fuller. As for that new suit which you put off buying or making, why not have one that can be worn on into the summer months, Miss Rea suggests. Instead of a wool suit she suggests a raybn faille or even a nice cotton dress suit, styled right for spring and summer. Cottons, though still hard to get, are being glamorized this year. Dark cotton chambray is being built up as the new fabric for summer. Style trends may change by fall. Miss Rea warns, making a spring wool suit slightly out-dated. Gibson Girl. The younger set will be seen in the spring parade sporting the Gibson girl suit, or variations of it. A short jacket with a full skirt is the fashion. If it's made of rayon faille or some light material, they'll purchase a petticoat or two to give the skirt that full flaring look. Popular petticoats are of cotton or rayon taffeta plaid or check, or of dainty eyelet batiste. Two or three are usually worn, with a ruffle or a lacy hemline showing below the skirt. Ensemble Good. Homemakers who sew and shop will find the ensemble coming back. This makes the redingote, the print dress with the solid-color coat or jacket, a good early season buy, and a bolero dress especially good for summer as well as spring. Styling of a print dress is "the simpler, the better," and of course larger women are careful to select a print which won't accent figure faults. Old-fashioned feminine details make the spring styles new. An off-the-shoulder effect is found in most of the new dresses with capes, or the. large oval "bertha" collar, which reaches to the peak of the shoulder pad. Many of the new, plain-colored styles feature embroidered ruffling, pleats, tucks and shirrings, to add interest. Farm wives of Iowa—if they, still control the household "pin money" have set a new cackle to an old tale and now care for fat hens that lay. golden eggs. The new cackle is ' that Iowa's so-called • "pin money" business— poultry—is big business, ranking Iowa first in the nation in the pro duction of eggs an dthe sale of eggs and chickens. Iowa also ranks fourth in the nation in the sale and production of turkeys, according to statistics gathered by the Market and Research Division of the Iowa Development Commission. Iowa's "pin money" business last year amounted to $190,766,000 in cash market receipts, highest actual cash received from the market sale of poultry in the history of Iowa's poultry business. Cash market receipts have grown steadily since 1945. totaling $177,780,000 that y,ear, and amounting to $187,469,000 in 1946. These receipts were from the sale of eggs, chickens and turkeys. Iowa also ranked as one of the three top states in the nation in a preliminary estimate of the number of chicks produced by commercial hatcheries in 1947. Commercial hatcheries last year produced 91,440,000 chicks. Records show that Iowa poultry raisers during 1947 received cash market value for the sale of eggs in the amount of $124,355,000 and produced 4,253,000,000 eggs to lead the nation in both categories. They garnered another first place in the pounds of chickens sold, with a total of 114,936,000 pounds. Cash receipts from chicken sales by poundage amounted to $47,608,000. Figures in each category are national records for 1947. In the production, market sales in poundage, and cash market receipts from turkeys, Iowa ranked fourth in the nation, with cash receipts totaling $18,803,000. These statistics mean, according to the Market and Research Division of the Development Commission, that Iowa produces more than seven percent of the nation's total production of chickens, eggs and turkeys. Data compiled by the Iowa State College economics department also indicate that poultry raising is no side issue. Over a 13 year period (1934-46) more income per dollar of feed was derived from poultry than from any other type of live stock. Poultry returns for each dollar of feed used were $1.74, as against $1.62 for dairy, $1.60 for hogs, and $1.26 for beef. State agricultural officials point out that such records are the natural result of plentiful feed available in Iowa for livestock. Iowa has been fortunate in the enormous production of feed for poultry. Chickens, cattle, hogs, sheep and many other kinds of livestock are brought to Iowa to be fed on its nutritious feed. This grain is raised on some of the best farm land in the nation. Iowa has twenty-five per cent of the grade A land in the United States. Drapery Fabrics Show New Textures and Colors A. home should have style, too. And the fashion trends in draperies this year are just as striking as the longer, fuller skirts. In draperies it's brighter colors; fabrics made to match or blend with your rugs and slip covers; the "woven look" for more texture interest. Draperies, of course, can do more than just add style to your home. Fabrics subdue sound by absorbing and breaking up sound waves, says Nora Workman, extension home furnishings specialist at Iowa State College. Thus, fabrics can make a room quieter, though homemakers must be careful to keep more "plain" than "patterned" area in their rooms in order to keep the design itself from being noisy. New colors set the pace in the drapery fashion parade. Clear, luminous pastels and the more vibrant darker tones are back in the picture. Interesting textures hit a high fashion note this year. Herringbone weaves and homespun textures, as well as the contrast of shiny and dull surfaces, have possibilities for contrast or harmony with other textures in your room. GIVE ROSES GOOD START WITH PROPER PLANTING Sell it through a Herald Want Ad Getting your hybrid tea roses off tb a good start for the summer depends on proper planting now, says Larry Grove, Iowa State College horticulturist, Always be sure to make the hole big enough for the entire root system. Put no trash or manure into the hole—only clean soil. A cone of earth mounted at the bottom of the hole helps to spread the roots when the rose bush is set over it. The point or knuckle (where the graft was made) on the bush should be kept just even with the level of the ground, or slightly below ground level. Push loose soil around the roots, and then tramp the soil down as hard as possible with your foot That will carry the knuckle an inch or two below the ground level Put a bucketful of water in the hole, and pile in the rest of. the loose soil. Now prune the bush so that only three or four stubs are left. Each should be 6 inches long. If the bush has more than three or four canes, take out the thinner, weaker ones. Finally, mound fresh soil clear up over the stubs. In two or three weeks, when you scratch away the soil, shoots will have developed and the plant will be ready to grow Oats containing a lot of hulled seeds should be treated with New Improved Ceresan or Ceresan M before sowing, says C. S. Reddy, Iowa State College plant pathologist. Experiments show that a better stand of strong, healthy plants will result if the seed is treated,even though the hulled kernels are damaged by the treatment. Ask your county extension office for the latest edition of the booklet, "Know the Seed You Plant." It is an up-to-date reference of available certified seed grown in Iowa.
