She'll be delighted with her own version of your grown- up fa.c~hion. The fabric you choose, of course, has a lot to do with the appearance of the finished gar- ont. Three of the most popular al. c:~i~,a ~,v vci~ete~:a, t ~ lace. They require special handling :because 'of their construction, but don't shy away from these fal~'ics simply because you'v~ never sewn with them before.

American beauty satin is used for binding on the jacket and for the narrow belt Corduroy and velveteen. Ex- tra yardage is needed for such fabrics as corduroy and velve- teen which have a pile surface. Follow the Fardage require- ment given on the pattern en- velo~)e for "fabric with nap." If this is not given, allow at least an extra quarter of a yard. Before laying out the pattern, dete~nine the direction of l~he pile by running your hand light- ly over the fabric's mtrface. ~t will have a smooth feel when you siroke it in the direction of the pile. Place pattern pieoes~ with tops all pointing in the same direction, with i~ho pile running up toward the face for ric~her color. Use fine pins and needles to prevent holes, Baste with short stitches for firnmess, and sew ~th ~ ~edium-l~ong machine stitch, approximatel~y 10 to I2 stitches per inch. 1t is best not to top-stitch velveteen. Use loops, snal~, or zipper closings to avoid buttonholes. Finish seams by pinking and overcast- ing. Before pressing velveteen, cov- er ironing board w~h a terry cloilh towel. Place the righ~t side of the fabric against the terry cloth. Hold steam iron above fabric, allowing steam to brush surface and penetrate fabric. When preSsing seams open, place strip of paper between seam al- lowance and fabric. This will prevent seam edge from mark- ing fabric on th~ right side, Cotton lace. Cotton satin may be used for lining colton lace garments. Use identical pattern pi~ces for cutting lace and satin, u,less pattern calls for separate lining.

GIFT HORSE "MERE ANGELIQUE" ARRIVES IN ROK FOR N.I.H. This mare---Mere Angelique"---is one of the ten horses of Normandy breed stock donated to Korea's National institute of Health by The American-Korean Foundation. These hones, recently come to Korea, will be a breeding nucleus to ensure future needs for the production of vaccine by the Korean National Institute of Health of the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs of ROK. They will help replenish a herd of 20 horses also donated by the Foundation in 1955. By fostering local serum production, rather than imports, Korea's foreign exchange fund [which comes largely from U. S. aid funds| will be conserved. Following their arrival at Inchen the new horses were given a VIP welcome at AKF headquarters in Seaal, Korea. ~Mere A~gellquo" is being held by Colonel Charles A. Anderson (USA-Rut.), AKF's 4-H Club consultant. Others In the welcoming party are, right to left, Mr. Richard F. Underwood, American-Korean Foundation Director of Activities in Kore4j; Dr. Dorothy M. Frost, visiting Executive Director of AKF; Mr. Min Chang-hang, Chief of the Animal Control Sac- tion of the Korean National Institute of Heaithi and Mrs. Anna KeyzerO.ndre, Pacific Public Relations Director of the Federal Overseas Fund Campaign.

Diversion Work Faces TesI In 'Congress Johnson suid it is important that contracts for utilization of the water provided in the initial phase of the project be signed. sealed and delivered in advance of the request from Congress for initial coustruction funds. A prediction that the Garrison diversion project will be reau- thorized by Congress in the 86th session opening in January was made by James R. Smith of Omaha, vice president of the Mississippi Valley Association. Smith said, "the foundation for this reauthorization legislation was laid during the last session of Congress nnd now the time has come to get this worthy pro- ject off the ground." Bruce Johnson of Billings, 1Wont Region Six director for the .Bureau of Reclamation warn- ed last week in Minot that if the Garrison diversion project is not in construction by fiscal 1963. work on the big irrigation pro- ject will probably come to ~ standstill. Johnson addressed delegates to the North Dakota Water Users Assn. convention. He said the bureau does nol ,o *o. Adminisirali0n funds for the project for fiscal 1963. Reauthorization of the project in the coming session of Board--t;han0e Congress is vital, if there is not to be a year's lapse in work on the project, he added. He said the lapse of a year ~ more in the development of the Garrison diversion p r o j e c "would be a catastrophe in ; state depending so much on ir- rigation development." Johnson said a statement from Fred Seaton, secretary of inter- ior, has indicated that the signing of contracts with irrigators em- bracing 100,000 ~cres of land would be ample for proceeding with construction. "Such.a unit could operate as an entity until the additional acreage could be brought in," Johnson said. Eventually a million acres is slated to be irrigated. Asked by LRC The legislative research com- mittee has voted to change the makeup of the board of admin- istration from three full time board members and two ex-of- rico members to a seven-mem- ber part time nrr dien, board The only dissenting vote was cast by Rap. K. A. Fitch of Far- go, a Republican. In discussion of the bill pre pared by the LRC on the report of the subcommittee on educa- tmn, the Republicans seemed well asligned against the proposal while the Democrats supported it. The bill now will be ~ntroduc- ed in the 1961 legislature, which is controlled by the Republicans. Rap. Walter O. Burk of Wil- liams, made a suggestion which, if carried out, would abolish the board of administration. which supervises penal and char- itable institutions and the Capitol and grounds at Bismarck. He suggested that the tuber- culosis sanatorium at San Have.'~ and the state Hospital at James- town be transferred to the state Health Department. the State school at Grafton. school for the blind at Grand Forks and State Training School at May.- dan be supervised by the sup- erintendent of public instruction. Then. he said if some way could be found to supervise the Peni- tentiary at Bismarck and the Capitol and grounds, the board could be abolished. RARE DUCKS BAGG/ED IN NORTH DAKOTA A couple of ducks that are not commonly found in North Dakota were bagged by local hunters this fall, announced Charles Schroeder, waterfowl biologist for the state game and fish department. Ted Kopseng, Bismarck, bag- ged a male white-winged scoter while duck hunting in Grant cotmty--in southwestern North Dakota. The unusual visitor was feeding with a flock of mallards. Another scoter, an American Common) Scoter, was shot by a duck hunter in southeastern North Dakota. near Ellendale a few weeks before Kopseng bag- ged his. I P4 S The lights dim, and in the darkened high-ceilinged room a somber-faced little boy stares at the pilot light of a towering microscope. This is the electron micro- scope at Ohio State University Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, a giant inquiring eye nine feet ~all, capable of magnifying the uman cell 100,000 times. The small boy with rather sad little face is Kevi~ Sharp, 3 years, of Grow City, Ohio, who wanted to a 3vmbo-sized version of th~ toy microscope given him or his last birthday by his doctor. Kevin has to see his doctor regularly because he is a vic- tim of spina bifida, or open spine. He is paralyzed from the waist down and cannot play ball--or indeed play much at anything. Such mobility as he has is made possible by his crutches and leg braces. Kevin's is one of the signifi- cant birth defects the cause of which is being pursued today by The National Foundation with New March of Dimes con- tributions. Congenital malfor- mations afflict 250,000 infants annually in the United States and are responsible for the deaths of 34,000 babies each year who are stillborn or die within four weeks of birth. The health organization's ex- panded program also includes arthritis and continued work in polio.
