Telephone No. 251 Postville, Iowa Some sheets will be coming with both hems the same width, says Nora Workman, Iowa State College home furnishings specialist. Either end can be used at head or foot to equalize wear. A label may tell you that there are extra threads woven into the center for added strength. Watch for double selvages. Best wearing sheets have "tape selvages" —heavy, closely woven edges with extra lengthwise threads woven in to strengthen and to reinforce the edges. The label should tell the percentage of sizing. Five or six percent is sufficient, and the less the better. If the label doesn't say, rub two sections together. If white powder rubs off you're fairly sure there's too much sizing. "Torn size" should also be mentioned on the label. For straight ends after laundering and hems that lie smooth, you'll want to know that the sheet was torn to size before hemming. Best-wearing sheets are muslins with high thread count and high thread count combed percales. Thread count equals the number of crosswise threads plus the number of lengthwise threads per square inch. A good sheet has about the same number of yarns both ways. Persale sheets are woven of finer threads and so have softer texture. As for length the 99 or 108-inch torn length is usually best for a 72-inch mattres.

POSTVILLE 237-J Working toward charming home grounds is labor which has its reward in the pride of creating a beautiful recreation area for your family and in the compliments you'll receive from neighbors and guests. It will take plenty of planning and perspiration, but it's absorbing work. Later, this summer you'll know it was worth it, says Margherita Tarr, extension landscape specialist at Iowa State College. Here are some suggestions from her newest bulletin (not yet oft the press), "Our Home Grounds," to help you with your spring plans and planting. Many Iown homes may need some large shade tree plantings. Others may need only a border of lowgrowing shrubs along the foundation to make them more beautiful. The flower-loving homemakers will want to plan borders along the backyard fences. Shrubs and flowers are just a boundary for your lawn. The lawns should seldom be broken up to make room for them. You can plan shrub planting to serve as a transition between the house walls and the ground by- taking in hand just a soft lead pencil and dull or mat-finished snapshots of the, house. Height is the most important consideration in this kind of a border—greatest height usually will be at the corners, .with minor accent plants at the entrances. After you've made your sketch go outside and measure up on the house, to learn the height of each plant you've shown on the picture. Shrubs are listed by height groups in Pamphlet 5, "Iowa Landscape Plants." It can be secured free by writing to the Extension Service, Iowa State College, Ames. And when you're plotting which shrubs to plant, remember that evergreens have year-round beauty, but an all- evergreen planting is depressing. From Pamphlet 5 you can also decide how many shrubs of each kind you'll need for the space you have. The "spread" as given in the pamphlet is the total area which the plant will take when it's full grown. Take three-fourths of the spread to figure out how far apart you'll plant each one. It's fun to plan the flower borders. If they're to have a background of shrubs it may be best to plan a grass walk between, so that there will be no shrub roots in the flower beds to compete for plant food and moisture. If a wire fence is the background, try planting some vines on it. Your flower borders will probably be four or five feet wide. A border is meant to bloom from early spring until frost. You'll want masses of flowers that go together during the entire growing season. To get this mass effect, plant several of one kind in a group, except for plants like peonies, oriental poppies and baby's breath, which give a mass effect when they're put in singly. If your flower border will be predominantly pink, try repeating white blooming flowers through the whole border, so that there will be white v blooms in each season. If your border is predominantly rust and orange, repeat yellow flowers instead of white. Flowers with yellow-red blooms should not have to share the same border with blue-red flowers. They do not look pretty together. So plant peonies,, pink petunias, phlox and hollyhocks with white and blue flowers in one border, or at one end of the border. At the other end, or in another border, with yellow and blue flowers, plant your tiger lilies, oriental poppies and lychnis. LeflToWrite By Bob Klauer.

BAD LUCK Roland Bachtum of Riceville lost both legs while serving in Germany but hard luck is still dogging him. His specially built car upset near Grundy Center recently when the brakes failed to hold. The car was damaged but the occupants were unhurt. KILLED Two year old Virginia Mazur of near Rowley tried to climb up cn Daddy's truck as he backed it around the barn and met death when the rear wheels fractured her skull. She had been asleep and her father did not see her come out into the barnyard to play. What A Contrast This week the Democratic Na tional Convention is meeting ii Philadelphia. The Convention i: being held in the same hall where the Republicans gathered just three weeks ago. The setting is much the same, the speaker's platform, the delegate sections, the press rows, the big lights for the movie and television cameras, throwing their sizzling rays upon the delegates and spectators, the same state standards and decorations. Even some of the hot dogs may be left over from the Republican conclave. But what a difleronce in spite of this similarity in settings. As the Republican Convention opened the general feeling prevailed that this convention was going to nominate the next president of the United States. Everyone was confident of victory and there was that feeling of party unity in spite of the fact that the contests for the presidential nominations had been spirited and .hard fought. And as the Convention ended, with the nomination of Governor Dewey for President, and Governor Warren for Vice President, it was generally conceded that they are the team which will be victorious at the polls next November. Contrast all this with the Democratic Convention. There is no confidence, there is no unity in the Democratic ranks. It is a party which is falling to pieces and its j members, like the people in general, have lost all faith in President Truman. They realize that Mr. Truman's days are numbered politically. They know he cannot win. But they ned someone who can win in order to perpetuate themselves in office. And thus we have the spectacle of the James Roosevelts. the Frank Hagues and the like, clamoring for a stampede to General Eisenhower, in spite of the repeated statements from the General that he is not available as a candidate. It must be apparent to everyone that these men care nothing about the Gener-1 al except to use him as a means to' keep themselves in the political; ring. j General Eisenhower is a great! military leader, a hero of World [ War II, and immensely popular! with the people. They feel, with him as their candidate, they could win. but with Mr. Truman they can't. So its anything to win with them even if it means repudiation of the Truman Administration. We have always felt that Mr. Truman would be renominated and at this writing our views remain unchanged. General Eisenhower has flatly announced he will not be a candidate and we are sure he meant every word of it, and will not accept even if Mr. Truman withdraws, which is extremely unlikely. But in spite of the dissention which exists in the Democratic ranks Mr. Truman, we are sure, has the votes to nominate him on the first ballot. Which brings it all down to the statement we heard the other day: The Republicans nominated their first choice on the third ballot. The Democrats will nominate their third choice on the first ballot. The Iowa Campaign Within a short time the campaign in Iowa as well as throughout the nation will be in full swing. Although Iowa is a traditionally Republican state, and all Indications point to a sweeping victory for that party both in the state and nation. Iowa Republicans plan an aggressive campaign. The state ticket, which will be offered to (he voters of Iowa by the Republicans this year, is an exceptionally strong one. On it are men of experience and vision who will continue to give the state the high type of government it has enjoyed under successive Republican administrations. Heading this excellent ticket are U. S. Senator George A. Wilson, who is seeking his second term, and Rep. William S. Boa candidate for Governor. popular candidates who enjoy, confidence of the people, Beardsley's popularity was alt to in the recent primary cl while Senator Wilson too sh that his record met with the proval of the electorate. Both are men of experie; Senator Wilson has the distiti of having served in the jujf legislative and executive bra- of the government. Rep. Beat too has had considerable tx ence in state affairs having se in both the Iowa House and ate, and is well qualified to k« state's Chief Executive. In the meantime the Repub"' Fund Raising Campaign is i n gres? In most of th state's i ties. Under this plan, which adopted this year, but one drive funds will be conducted, money so raised will go tu county, state and national patty ganizations.
