Meets the War
Rayon to Mrs. America these
but to Uncle Sam it means war
goods cords for military tires,,
paratroop uniforms and lining for
cords for parachutes, material for
military uniforms. Perhaps you
wonder how that delicate material
in stockings or dress materials can
be toughened to a war job. Ac
tually the same ingredients and
manufacturing technique are used
for rayon as milady knows it and
as it goes to war. The weight is
superstrong for its military role,
the main difference and it is made
So far it has not been necessary
to prohibit the manufacture of any
rayon product because of its ex
panding use for war. However, the
range of hosiery colors has been
reduced, and some simplification
of construction may follow.
. Home may have never been quite
like this, but soon Mrs. America
may have skillets made from heat
resistant glass, dust pans of paper
board and molded fibre, and
ruga ted paper board. When store
clothes hangers made from cor
keeper's inventories run low on
civilian goods made from steel and
other critical materials, certain
substitutes may save the day for
some articles which otherwise may
be out. There is more wood furni
ture replacing metal furnishings,
and wood also will be used for
buckets, trays, washboards, vege
table bins which have been made
of metal. Glass, bone and non
critical plastics also will be used
for these articles.
Butgeting homemakers should
welcome the .OPA action in setting
new and uniform margins for re
tailers on nine food commodities
coffee, canned fish, cooking and
salad oils and hydrogenated and
other shortening, corn meal, can
ned citrus fruits and juices, " evap
orated and condensed milk, pure
maple syrup, pure corn syrup,
flour and flour mixes. The uniform
mark-ups will be applied to his net
cost by your storekeeper to deter
mine his ceiling prices. This is part
of the OPA program designed to
simplify price control for Mrs.
America as well as her grocer. It
is expected that this uniform
mark-up procedure will be followed
by broader action on other pro
ducts. Packaging is the latest civilian
convenience to lose more frills for
the duration. The WPB has cut the
production of boxes used by re
tailer merchants for packaging
merchandise, and at the same time
board which can be used in the
restricted the quality of paper
manufacture of special gift boxes.
The WPB expects to provide more
containers for products that for
merly were packed in tin by the
And speaking of packaging, the
expression "wrapped in cellophane"
is about to become more of a war
casualty. Cellophane is the best
known form of cellulose film which
has become a much-needed war
material. Among the packages
which formerly had cellophane
wrapping, but won't any more,
are boxes of candy, tea, spices, pep
per, unshelled nuts. If you used to
find certain cartons of dried fruits
with overwraps of this material ,or
rice, barley, macaroni, noodles, ect,
they'l be without from now on.
The housewife in rural communi
ties stands to benefit today from
the government order limiting big
store inventories. Her home-like
merchant will be able to have a
better stock of goods from which
shse can choose since the order is
intended to make a more equitable
distribution of goods instead of al
lowing them to accumulate in
warehouses. So in these days of gas
warehouses. So in these days of gas
rationing, when trips into the city
are difficult, Mrs. Rural America
should find that she will have ac
cess in her own community to the
things her family needs.

" Although the Kenny method
was a matter of pronounced skep
ticism 'until three years ago, its
amazing results since have won
the endorsement of the American
medical profession. After a thirty.
year struggle for recognition the
Australian Bush nurse came to
this country in 1940 and through
funds provided by the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis
she was established at the Univer

scientists throughout the nation

into the subject. 4
The Kenny method of treat

It does away with splints and

CHURCH OF CHRIST HAS
The Church of Christ in Hepp
ner had one of its most successful
years in two decades or so. This
was revealed very satisfactorily in
the annual reports of the Church.
Beginning the year with nearly
$2,000 indebtedness, the church,
under the leadership of T. J. Hum
phreys, was able to clear itself of
his obligation and still have some
to spare. For the first time in 22
years the church is free of debt,
and has an adequate surplus in the
general fund with all bills paid.
When most other Bible scshools
have been showing a decrease in
attendance, as national figures re
veal, the Bible school of the church
had an increase of over 15 percent.
The increase in membership was in
proportion. There were 23 baptisms
and 13 statements of membership
last year as compared to the same
number in the last four years.
