(Second and final instalment of
letter from Eileen Margaret Coo-!
For a fortnight this summer we
camped on the South Downs just
on the hills overlooking Little
Hampton. Of course we had full
force of the channel gales. It was
a pretty exciting time, especially
one night when we found a river
running right though the camp at
3 o'clock in the morning. The PL's
had to pick-a-back 30 small guides
to the safety of the barn through
a foot of mud in the pouring rain.
We had to repitch next day and
have all our bidding and clothing
dried at the farm.
I think that is enough to show
you that we really enjoy our out
door life in any kind of weather.
We try to cycle down to Mickle-
ham every week end to do our bit
in helping to gather in the beaten
down crops, but so far we've only
succeeded in getting ourselves'
soaked, for it always pours with
rain here and yesterday was the
only fine day we've had since Aug
ust bankholiday when we had two'
days and Easter when we had five
days. It's pouring with rain again
today, of course.
On Sunday I came back from
Wales where I had been staying
for a fortnight with the people who
looked after me for six months

From Wales I brought home with

For A Pure Fabric Law
The following article, contributed to The National Cleaners &
Dyers Magazine by a man engaged in the cleaning business for
nearly one-half of a century, explains some of he fabric troubles
wi h which cleaners are confronted. We hope you will take time
to read it through:
How much longer are the clianers of the United States
going to stand lor the faulty merchandise that is being
manufactured and sold to the department stores and then
to the consunltr?
You know without me telling you that plenty of ma
terial is being stretched in the manufacture. Some of
these garments are labeled "Dryclean Only," and you
know and I know that drycleaning will not remove certain
stains. Then the garments have to be spotted, in some
casi s wetcleaned. and when wetcleancd thev shrink. Some
garments even shrink in pressing. Then there are thou
sands and thousands of garments that are top-dyed, some
of which fade just hanging in the closet without even
being worn. Also, a lot of the garments are not properly
serged, and when the customer wears them the seams
pitil out, or w hen sent to the drvekaner the seams pull
out. It would only take the manufacturer a little while
longer to s rge them. Another thing that should be cor
rected is the unserviceable trimming and buttons that are
used in dresses.
You no doubt remember when the drvcleaners tried to
get a pure fabric law through Congrtss. but we didn't get
very far. Now when a consumer buys a garment and any
of the things mentioned above happens to it, the consumer
ai:es it back to the merchant who sold the article: the
merchant says it is the fault of the cleaner, and the cleaner
says it is the fault of the manufacturer. The customer
doesn't get any satisfaction, the cleaner gets a bad rep
utation, the merchant made his profit, and the consumer
is the "sucker." There should be a law enacted requiring
the manufacturers to label all garments. In addition they
should be obliged to shi ink the material before they make
it up. We have been i-i the tailoring business for forty
eight years, and never had a suit we made shrink.
The shirt manufacturers have cooperated with the laun
dries, and there is a very little trouble because most of
the materials are Santo: i-ed, and the laundry doesn't have
a claim in ten thousand. Our experience has been that
when a shirt faded, and it was made by a reputable man". -facturer.
we sent it bt.ck to the manufactu: rnd they
sent us a new shirt. We have had four or f;-c cases like
that in the last few years. As you know, the manufac
turers of women's garments, especially, and also men's,
are running wild. The consumer is getting the worst of
it, and is getting no ptolection. The cost that the manu
facturer would have ;tt making a garment properlv is
small, and I am sure that the consumer would be willing
to pay the extra cost.

cooking fat, 2 ounces margarine, 2j
ounces butter, 8 ounces sugar. Then
a month we're allowed halt a;
pound of tea and a tablet of toilet
soap and a half bar of washing '
soap, each. Each week we get ls-2d ,
ach of meat and 2J of corn beet, I
but you can see that s not much
when meat is so dear. All tin (
stuff and things like macaroni, spa- i
hetti, dried peas, dri. d fruits, bis- ,
cuits, etc. are on points. We get
;2 points each a month, but see
how far it goes when biscuits are
8 a pound syrup is 8 a pound, tin
milk, beans in tomato, peas, etc. i
are 4 a pound, whilst tin fruit and
meats are 22 a pound.
The bread rationing? Well, lor.
our family of six we get about a
large loaf (4 pounds) and a small
loaf (2 pounds) a day, With a J-
pound bag of flour once a week.
Both Dad and Dawn taRe a pacK oi
sandwiches to work for dinner and
tea and Uiey are both big eaters.
Janet, Felicity and I all take sand
wiches to eat at break and have
canteen dinner at school. Milk is
easier done by Uie week. Janet,
Felicity, Dawn and I all get 3 1-2
pints a week or 1-2 pint each a
day. Mum and Dad get 2 pints
each a week, which I leave you to
work out how much that is each
the only things that are not ra-
tioned are vegetables and fish but
they are in short supply. We grow
most of our own vegetables but
have to rely on the shops for fruit.
I have had about four oranges and
two bananas since last Christmas
and I am considered one of the
lucky ones.
Up to now I have always made
my birthday and Christmas gifts
but this year I will be very busy
swotting so I do not know how I
am to manage as there is nothing in
the shops.
Have you any interesting birth
day dates? Our family have: on
Felicity's birthday, April 3, 1945
my uncle was released from a
POW camp in Germany; my birth
day. May 8, 1945, was V-E day,
which, incidi ntally, I spent under
an operation in hospital, and Mum
my's birthday, August 15, 1945, was
V-J day. Also in 1940 it was the
first raid made by German aircraft
on Croydon airfield in daylight andj
we stood and watched the bombs
go down. That night was the first
of the all-night raids.
Well, I am writing this on school '
paper in school time so I am afraid ,
I must close. We only came back
to school yesterday so we haven't
our prep timetable yet but I will
give you the otlv r one.
Til next time then, ehi erio, and
much love Your Penfriend,
