How Iowa Women Have Turned A Yarn Hobby Into Money (Thi RMlsU'r'i Iowa Newt Service) GILMORE CITY, IA. - If you've ever shuddered at ihe sound of shattered glass when youngsters play ball indoors on a rainy day, you'll want to know about the hobby of Mrs. Harry Anderson of Gilmore City. Mrs. Anderson makes Swedish yarn balls. Although soft, they bounce and will fly quite a distance when struck with a bat. But if a child gets hit with one, he will not be injured. A ball won't break a window or smash a valuable vase no mat-! ter how hard it is thrown. Intrigued Mr. Gordon Jensen is superintendent of the Gilmore City school. When his father-in-law; died, one of the balls was i among his personal posses- i sions. Mr. Jensen was intrigued ! with it, wondered if they could be sold and how they were made. There was no pattern. Seemingly no one knew until Mrs. Anderson explained how anyone can make them. "My husband made this two- by-four frame about four-feet- long," she said. "It is marked off into eight equal lengths, There is a hole at each end and | an iron bolt to fit into each : hole. "1 take four-ounce skeins of (yarn, each of a different, bright ! color and stretch them from ,bolt to bolt. The board is marked off into equal parts and the yarn is tied off into eight i equal segments. Then I cut I them apart with a sharp butch- jer knife. That gives me eight 'ragged and j uneven balls. Trimmed by Hand "Kadi has to be trimmed hy hand. We tried horsr clippers ;and a jilliori other things but i we've found nothing better than , the familiar old scissors. "I do 96 and then Mr. Jensen picks them up and pays me. He has half-a-dozen other rough-looking! ladies in town making them, too. He supplies wholesalers and jobbers who irll to school supply houses. More and more schools are buying them for the lower grades and for kindergarten children. They?, retail for 11.29 each." Mrs. Anderson has many oth- \fr hobbies. After pictures were taken nf tb* most unusual, there were four flash rubes lefl on (he (able. "Don't apnlngi/e nr bother about them," she said. "A Bond hobbyist never throws anything away. I'll make two sets nf ear rings nut nf the four cubes " '2. fi#rr« iiM»-— th« most rnmmnn of th« r» au | Hire* in rau.wd hy asrinR, dinoaiw, dniRs, or ront.inuwl »xponur»i to loud noise*.
