That's how Tina Leser, New York designer called in to help salvage back-issue duds, reclaimed ,i siviinpy frock which typifies the dress tnat's facing discard in almost every wardrobe today. i;ie back number submitted to Mias Leser for re-styling was a jiiu l-jslocvcd srey woolen dress of ;ncc-lcn;;th with no hem-letting posit iliUes. as sh:>wn in the pholo- ;iL.p'.i ULOVC. The bodice was cm- jiOideicd with nuilheads. Miss Lcssr's transformation, as ,l.cic'ned, looks like a wand-wavihd deal. The sorcery lies in heavy «ray crepe apron skivl, back-but- 'oned and. gathered around the va.srline. Tlils simply-styled skirt, vliich any woman who can sew an ipron can make in any length de,n-ed, ties on with ribbon belting over a blouse salvaged from the top of the old-styled dress. Miss Lcsev removed the nau- iends from the lop of the outmoded -Iress and detached the old skirt. On ths "new" blouse she repeated a motif of the new skirt's black- and silver sequin embroidery. ShO'tld you desire to revamp an old dress along these "new look" lines, there are variations on this theme which you might like to try. A wool dress, similar to the one i e-styl^d by Miss Leser, will team TS smartly with a new skirt of matching wool jersey. A black skirt, similar to the Tina Leser tie on, could be used to revive any little black dress that's beginning to languish in your closet.

Where complete fertilizer has not been applied and there is no cover crop seeded in the orchard, the application may be made at any time that soil conditions are suitable. The earlier that the phosphate and potash is applied, the greater benefit will be realized from the application.

As a rule, the more wool the warmer the blanket. It takes at least 25 per cent wool to make much difference in warmth, or to give any of the characteristics of a wool blanket such as fluffiness, elasticity and ability to absorb moisture without feeling damp. The label may also tell the weight of the blanket. In choosing between blankets of the same size and fiber content, the heavier .one contains more fiber and therefore is usually the better buy. But blan- vets of different fiber content can- lot be compared on this basis. Then, hold the blanket up to the light. Inspect the nap.

AP Newsfeature* New York— In rugged prehistoric days, mart's 'average life span <ivas a meagre 18 'years. Infant' and {childhood mortality were terrifically nigh, pulling the average expectancy down. Discovery of numerous damaged skulls indicates that violent death from clubs and battle-axes were fairly common in times not noted for so cial graces. '.-,,' In the Itbmarv age 2,000 years ago, the life expectancy wasn't much grcateiy somewhere on the low- side of 30, and about 150 yedrs ago- the average, life span Was around 35 years, says the Statis tical Bulletin Of the Metropolitai Lite Insurance Co. In the United States in 1945, the average length; :of life was 05.8 years, the study shows, and the average span has "undoutedbly increased more In the past century than in all prior centuries together 'since the dawn of civilization." Most'of the increase has been due to saving lives of babies and children. For millennia, people have lived much longer than tne average given. The average span, of adults was longer' after they had survived Childhood.

You will need a tall inexpensive candle and numerous discarded burned ends of candles for each big candle you plan to make. Burned candles only take up storage space after they hve ceased to be of use. Now is the time to make them useful. A good mold for large decorative candles is the now popular cardboard pint or quart milk cartoon used by modern dairymen, Miss Dixon' explains. Cut off the top section which leaves a straight rectangular form. Thoroughly clean and dry the mold th*n it is ready for use. Place a new candle upright in the exact center of tha carton. This will give you a center wick. It should extend about one- ' half inch above the top surface of the mold. In order to keep this candle upright while the work is being done it may be nccccsary to heat the base enough to cause it to adhere to the base of the mold. Then prepare the filler by melting any and all colors of candle ends you have. Remember that if your mold is a quart milk carton it will take almost a quart of melted candle wax to fill the mold. If you are making Christmas candles you may wish to save out some red candles to be used as an outside fininshing paint after the mold has been removed. Usually- the result of using candles of numerous colors is very pleasing without dipping for an all-over solid color. Heat the candle wax only enough to licjuify and permit the removal of the burned wicked ends. Then fill the mold with the melted wax and leave undisturbed until it hardens. To unmold the candle tear the paper carton away. Any rougl corners may be smoothed with i warm knife. The top may b sloped and shaped in the sam manner. If a true solid color is desired it may be obtained by applying a film of warm melted colored candle wax to a very cold molded candle. Either apply the polored film with a soft brush or quickly dip the cold candle in warm melted wax. o Game Multiplying Moscow —(fft— Wild boars and elk arc multiplying in the forests of the Moscow oblasl as they did SCO years ago. A census for 10431944" showed the oblast had about 1,500 elk. Last year the number reached 2,000. The boars are increasing. They were brought here a number of years ago from the south. . o If a plane should fly westward at the eath's equator at a little more than 1.000 miles an hour it would remain in times zones recording the same time of day as that in which it started. /-u • ..«,«= «; P ason is now here Chns.,n«S.o W n ,.,, jii now .n • *e happy MERRY !*'."• «,Jr. JJJs£-. fjf!«»\»f*if. -.-U,.
