HACINC StmOAT BULLETIN Aufusl M^59 Ability to Cope with Details Helps in Political Campaign ^!'±^^'ll\UnsQfhfacfory Fabrics, Garmenh Can Cause Legitimate Complaints WASHINGTON—(NEA)— If you can successfully manage a family, it's a cinch that you can run a political campaign. iTiat's the conviction of Clare B. Williams/assistant chairman and director of Woman's Activities of the Republican National Committee. She believes that actively participating in politics is one of the most rewarding experiences a housewife can have, Mrs. Williams explains that in recent years many homemakers have surprised male politicos by becoming topnotch campaign managers. Others have proved themselves adept at arranging' publicily drives and managing a campaign's finances. Planning She believes the gals' skill at handling these matters stems from their ability to cope with the daily multitude of house hold chores. To get hubby off to work, tak". the kids to school, shop for groceries, clean the cause of conviction. They wil not quit." She pooh-poohs the idea that women can be swayed by a candidate's youth and good looks. We have got to get out of the habit of thinking of women as a special segment of the voting population. The same things about a candidate that appeal to men also appeal to women. Women want to elect someone with a dynamic personality who shows forceful leadership. They want him to hove integrity and conviction that mirror their own." Speeches Planning GOP organizational drives and making speeches to women's groups throughout the country keeps Mrs. Williamsi constantly on the go. j "My favorite hobby these; days," she laughs, "is trying to find time to sleep. "1 have a habit of sitting up in bod at night with my chin inj one hand, thinking and making i notes. The girls at Republican URBANA—It's your duty to complain! Complain about unsatisfactory fabrics and garments to retailers, not to your friends. Retailers can transmit your legitimate complaints to manufacturers, but your friend.s can only sympathize. But be sure your complaints are legitimate, advises Esther Siemen, clothing specialist at the University of Illinois. Do not join the group of chrOnic conriplainers who don't bother to read the manufacturer's directions for proper care and consequently ruin garments. Miss Siemen lists the follow ing legitimate complaints: Silk garments that water .spot. If this happens, the finish on the silk fabric was not properly applied and cured. (Curing is a final heat-setting process.) Fishy odor in clothes or fab­ rics. Some wash-and-wear and minimum-care fabrics have this odor. It is also caused by faulty application and curing of the finish. Anything with colors that crock or fade. (Crocking means that the color rubs off.) Sometimes linings and interlinings in car coats crock, bleed through or both. Knits that shrink or stretch out of shape. Processes ar^ available to correct this old fault of knits. Color Changes Color changes in the part of the garment touching Shoulder pads. Some pads react with natural air and moisture, or with dry-cleaning fluids, to produce fumes that fade colors. A fabric made from a combination of silk and other fibers that splits. This is a textile manufacturer's problem. , Car coats and rainwear in which the rubber coating peels off the basic fabric. Lined dresses in which the lining and dfess fabrics shrink differently. This may occur during either dry-cleaning or laundering. Open Missions in 17 Countries NYBORG, Denmark — Lutheran missionaries have been .sent out to open new fields in 17 countries in the past decade, a Lutheran World Federation official reported here. Eight of fields were in Latin America, six in Asia and three in Africa, Director Arne Sovik of the LWF Department of World Mission told its advisory commission at the opening of the commission's 10th anniversary meeting here. Dr. Sovik listed the 17 coun­ tries as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Malaya, Korea, Nepal, Northern Rhodesia, Ghana, Tanganyika, Uruguay, Brazil^ Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Venezuela, Panama and El Salvador. In a number of these countries, opening of the new fields meant expansion, rather than introduction, of Lutheran work.

The .same is true of politics. "Any political campaign con sists of a multitude of details that must be taken care of if it's going to be successful," Mrs. Williams .say.s. "Any woman who runs a house can plan a candidate's speaking schedule for a day and get him to where he's going and back again on time. She's used to organizing the coordinating activities." Enthusiasm Mrs. Williams adds, however, that women don't have to be top campaign strategists to be influential politicos. Probably the most vital contribution to elections they make is their determination to promote the candidate of their choice and then back up their enthusiasm by going to the polls. Mrs. Williams says that 52 per cent of the votes that sent Ike to the White House in 1952 came from women. Women contributed about the same percentage of votes in 1956, she says. 'Cause* Mrs. Williams explains that women are often more effective then men in promoting political candidates. "To men," she says, "politics is a business. To women, it's a cause. They give an emotional allegience and heartfelt loyalty to a candidate and a cause. They are persistent be- They know this means there's going to be a lot of work for everybody." Mrs. Williams, from Syracuse, N. Y., grew up in a politically conscious home. As a young girl, she helped her mother, an energetic campaign worker, hand out political literature. When she got her driver's license, she began driving voters to the polls. She became a poll worker as soon as she was old enough to vole. Teaching After graduating from the University of Syracuse, Mrs Williams tadght at a high school in Pulaski, N. Y. Two years later she moved to New York City where she studied retailing. For the next 10 years she worked as a buyer and mer chandising executive in Syra cuse and St. Louis, Mo. In 1940 she married Frank E Williams, a St. Louis attorney She and her husband moved to Florida in 1948 when he retired. Mrs. Williams re-entered politics in St. Petersburg where she became a precinct worker. In 1956 she was elected Republican National Committeewoman from Florida. Soon after this she was named to the RNC's Executive Committee . Her husband died in 1957. The following year Mrs. Williams was appointed to her present job as assistant RNC chairman.
