Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Tke Cedar Gueltt: Tfcirs., Jut t. U74 Be Creative With Cloth I'lnin garments and items of cloth can be enlivened fjrcatly by creative touches you give them. Pillowcases, dish towels, liandkcrchieves and dresser scarves are just a few items to which you can add artistic es- sence in a variety of ways. Here are a few ideas for you to try on your own items or as gifts for others. And they could also make good projects for (he clubs to which you belong. Iron-on designs can do much to make plain cloth items become lively and bright. Gaily decorated gardening gloves are always useful and can be easily made using iron- on fabric tape to make your designs. This is inexpensive, colorful and fun to cut and at- tach with a hot iron. Crayon can also be used on cloth and is ideal for livening up scarves, place mats, napkins and linen towels. Trace or draw your designs onto the cloth with pencil. Fill in with crayons and press the cloth with a hot iron on the back side. This will make the colors permanent, as well as deepen and brighten them. Collage on cloth items is fun. By simply sewing or gluing on bits of felt, buttons, yarn and pieces of sewing tapes, an or- dinary garment can become indeed lively. It is probably best to check with an adult before you make any changes to your own clothes, but often a sweater or dress can be in- terestingly changed by adding a variety of new materials. Whaf Young People Think Has the Streak Peaked? Teens on Wheels By Michael Lamm Felt marking pens are great for creating designs on cloth. Pillowcases, tennis shoes, jeans and swimming bags can be individualized with designs and pictures added with felt markers. Copy pictures or draw your own directly on the fabric lightly with a pencil. Then complete the pictures with various colors of markers. Markers used for this project should have permanent colors that will not wash out. Cloth can provide many ex- citing and worthwhile craft projects. And new creative touches can be easily dis- covered by young, eager minds. Guide Dog Receives Bachelor's Degree ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) Grandy, a blind student's guide dog has received a bachelor of science degree from Southern Oregon college. James Sours, college president, conferred the degree on Grandy at the same time as the dog's master, Gary Manlove, received a bachelor's degree during the school's commencement ceremonies. Dear Mike: When 1 first start my 1970 Challenger in the morning, the tachometer hovers around 1500 rpm. Then after warming up the engine, shutting it down, and restarting it, the tach works fine the rest of the day. It's just that first startup that gives trouble. Can you tell me what's wrong with this tach and how I can repair it? Morning Madness Dear fael Mere's not a thing wrong with your tach. Vour en- gine probably idles at 1500 rpm when it's cold. After if warms up, idle speed probably drops fo about 700 and everything seems normal. Dear Mike: Our 1968 Cad emits heated air only from the floor outlets, not from those on the dash. The owner's manual says that Au- tomatic Climate Control, which this car has, puts out air through the five registers in the instrument panel. Our dealer disagrees. Who's right? Hot Feet Dear Hot: Vour manual is. Possibly some of your heating air-condi- tioning system's cables or vacuum controls aren't working properly.

Eighty-two percent of those polled said streakers should not be fined or jailed for their performances. And most felt streaking would not grow in popularity. Those who have witnessed a streaking event described the incident and their reactions: "After a basketball game all the fellas streaked and the girls ran after them. It was says Dino Laman- na, 17, of Lynbrook, N. Y. "In the middle of a Met ballgame a streaker ran out of the stands and onto the field. 1 Jim Krass, 14, of East Rockaway, N.

"They ran too fast and I couldn't see anything. My reaction was one of grave said Andrea Platt, 15, of Dallas, Texas. Three percent of those polled felt streaking is a government pint, while thu rest felt less serious about the origins of this movement.
