When the label says "rayon," that's not all you want to know about that new dress or blouse. One type of, rayon, acetate, differs from others due to its process of manufacture. Then too, many rayon fabrics are blends, combining the desirable characteristics of more than one kind. Usually it's hard to tell content by the look or the feel, says Frances Friedell, Iowa State College clothing specialist, for many variations in texture and weave are possible with rayon. Acetate rayon requires special handling. So when you buy rayon, look on the label for care vinstruc- tions which may be there. And if you aren't perfectly sure of the kind, treat the rayon fabric in the first laundering as though it were acetate. You can soon tell whether it will be damaged by harsher methods. Cuprammonium and viscose, the other types, usually can take harder laundering than acetate and withstand greater heat. Acetate rayon tends to melt with temperatures above 300 degrees F. The weave or finish, of course, may make dry cleaning of the garment advisable, whatever the rayon content. When you launder a new garment here's a safe procedure to follow. First of all, remove trimming or buttons that shouldn't be washed. Dissolve mild soap in the lukewarm (not hot) water before dipping in the fabric. Gently squeeze the sudsy water through the fabric, rinse in lukewarm water and don't wring. Dry out of the sun. Use a warm iron, on the wrong side of the material. signal. Illegal U turns and passing on hills and curves also resulted in accidents that could have been avoided if traffic signs had been obeyed. Department officials suggest that Iowa motorists follow the National Safety Council's slogan for June, "Signs of Life—Read Them."

The Iowa department of public safety sends out the reminder that the vacation driver is already tuning up his fishing tackle and golf clubs for the annual "get away from it all" trip. The department says that means more cars on the road and more .accidents. Safety experts say that more than 95 per cent of the traffic accidents are preventable. In practically every case the driver is at fault one way or another. And the most prominent fault is the outright violation of a traffic law. With the prospect that the highways will be clogged with pleasure seekers this summer, the department urges all drivers to improve their chances of returning home safely by following the rules of the road. One of the easiest traffic laws to observe should be to obey signs, but department accident figures for 1947 show that motorists' disregard for signs caused 1,470 accidents in the state during the year. In 712 cases the driver disregarded a stop sign or signal, while a stated speed limit was exceeded 373 times. Drivers caused 202 accidents by failing to observe a stop-and-go Notice is hereby given to all whom it may concern that a meeting of the Town Council of the Town of Postville, Iowa, will (1 be held at the council rooms, Memorial Hall, in the Town of Postville, Iowa, on the third day of August, 1948, at 7:30 P.
