Hints on Dyeing Given
By Clothing Specialist
When mothers are faced with the
problem of making over adult gar
ments into children's clothes, home
dyeing may be done to freshen the
garment or to make the color more
suitable for the child, says Mrs.
Azalea Sager, extension specialist
in clothing and textiles at O. S. C.
Keeping in mind the action of
dyes on fibers may well save both
time and money, she says. Animal
fibers, such as silk and wool com
bine more readily with dyes than
cotton and linen. Cottons have lit
tle affinity for dyes. In dyeing cot
tons, it' is necessary to allow the
fabric to remain in the dye bath
10 to 15 minutes after removing
the receptlcal from the fire. Con
stant stirring is also necessary
throughout the time the material
is in the bath to prevent streaking.
Wool fabrics badly streaked and
faded by the sun cannot be suc
cessfully redyed. Sun burn changes
the chemical composition of the
fibers. They are burned and scorch
ed as if with a hot iron and al
though the change appears slight,
the burned part will dye a much
deeper shade. Very dark colors or
black are the only ones to be used
in dyeing sunburned fabrics.
A mimeographed circular giving
many practical hints for dyeing has
been prepared by Mrs. Sager for
free distribution. It lists the possi
ble combinations of colors to be
used in giving other shades, tells
what simple equipment may be
used, discusses preparation of the
material and selecting the dye, and
finally how to finish, dry and press
the newly dyed material.
A copy of this circular may be
had from any county extension ag
ent or direct from the home econ
omics extension office in Corvallis.

A New Deal
When Roosevelt's New Deal is
put into full force, the American
buyers, manufacturers, and pro
ducers are not the only ones who
will receive a new deal. Changes
will also come over the American
school children. When the parents
of these children have their hours
reduced and their wage3 Increased,
they will then devote more time to
the home life and to a wiser use
of leisure. The parents and their
children will develop a common in
terest in recreation. This recrea
tion will encourage a closer rela
tionship between parents and their
It follows that there will be a
deeper interest taken in tho home.
The modern child usually doesn't
receive the companionship of a
father or mother that the child of
fifteen years ago did. This is not
entirely the fault of the parents.
Times have changed. Money is now
the god of everyone. It takes
money to get along and one must
work to get money. When both
parents work, the children are left
to shift for themselves. At night,
the parents come home tired and
don't feel like helping a daughter
or son work arithmetic or learn
dates in history, let alone discuss
ing the daily problems which come
up in every young person's life.
They don't have or take the time
to have confidential talks with their
children or to give them the guid
ance they need so badly.
The children of the working peo
ple, in receiving a new deal them
selves, will give their playmates a
new deal. Even though the par
ents of the playmates are not work
ing, the child under the influence
and guidance of an interested par
ent will change for the better and
thus help his playmates to change.

At 6:30 Tuesday night the debate
club of Heppner high school held
a potluck dinner which was served
by Frances Rugg and Anabel Tur
ner, the only girl members of the
club. In the center of the table,
gay with Hallowe'en decorations, a
bowl of jellybeans was placed.
These jellybeans were the source
of much fun. It was proven that
rather than a debater Anson Rugg
should be a sharp-shooter. Anson
threw a jellybean from where he
was sitting at one end of the table
to the other where it landed in
Billy Cochell's mouth! Whether it
was Anson's skill in aiming or
whether Billy's mouth is so large
that he couldn't miss, it was un
decided. After dinner, the boys washed
the dishes. The official dishwasher
was Armin Wihlon, and those who
excelled in drying dishes were Don
Turner, Frank Anderson, Anson
Rugg, Billy Cochell ad Bill Thom
son. As Mr. Foord gave the excuse
that he could neither wash nor dry
dishes, he was elected to pick up

Recites Red Cross Deeds
In Appeal for Members
"In the minds of our people the
Red Cross is symbolic of good
deeds," says Judge John Barton
Payne, chairman of the American
National Red Cross, at Washington,
D. C, in a stirring appeal to citizens
of the United States.
In a message to the people of the
Pacific states received by A. L.
Schafer, Red Cross manager in the
Pacific Area, Chairman Payne says
concerning the annual Roll Call,
"The Red Cross carries on! More
than 25 million of our people have
had that fact brought home to them
in the last 18 months. They were
fed and clothed by the Red Cross,
to which a generous congress en
trusted the task of the nation-wide
flour and cotton distribution. The
responsibility was accepted cheer
fully. The duty has been discharg
ed effectually due to the unfailing
cooperation, support and helpful
ness of our Chapters and Branches.
"The Red Cross has the while
carried on Its regular program of
services with no curtailment. In
disaster areas it gave service to
sufferers from Southern California
to New England, bringing relief
and rehabilitation to more than 117
communities. It gave In Increas
ing volume, due to economy legis
lation, service to the war veterans.
It discharged its obligated services
to the enlisted men of the Army
and Navy. It advanced its health
program; widened Its activities in
land and water first-aid instruc
tion. It expanded volunteer service
through cotton garment production
to almost war-time proportions, It
enlisted more volunteers for Braille
book production for the blind and
for the varied volunteer services
and maintained its strength In the
enrollment of children in the Ju
nior Red Cross.
"And in the relief of the unem
ployed, the Red Cross chapters as
sisted more than 739,000 civilian
"The Red Cross cannot retreat
or turn aside. Its permanent base
is its practical interpretation of the
will of our people to serve human
ity in distress, with no thought of
race, creed or color.
"Our greatest happiness arises
from service to others. Ever since
the world war, people have strug
gled to uplift the human race; but
not until the Red Cross came into
being was there found a universal
thought upon which every people,
no matter of what religion or na
tionality or language, agreed and
that was the consecration of serv
ices to humanity."
