Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Juim 7, 1971 - THE ISTHMIDGE HERALD - 13 Cottage industry alive in Magrath WORLD ROUND-UP-Many nations come together as left to right, Lana Dolbak, Cathy Ferguson and Jennetle Tyberg show costumes and the display which is part of the international study being held in Mrs. Marty Conner's Grade 4 social class at St. Basil's Elementary School. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Is this for real? I saw an item in our daily peaer that said: "A child will not have hair darker than his darker parent. His hair will not be curlier than that of the parent with the curlier hair." Check with your experts. This raises some interesting questions. -A Daily Reader DEAR DAILY: Here's what Prof, Joshua Lederberg of Sanford University said; "What, never? No, never. Well, hardly ever. Often that doctrine is mischievous. You should ask WHICH hair you are going to compare - and at what age." So there you have it - straight from His Worship at Palo Alto . . . and quite a quote it is. Not every Nobel Prize-winning geneticist can make his point by borrowing a line from Gilbert and Sullivan! * *  DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please answer a question that has been bothering me for a long time. I have never seen it discussed anywhere and I have looked through every etiquette book I can find. When a person is visiting to the home of a friend, and the telephone rings, is it polite for the hostess to leave her guest sitting alone while she goes to another room and talks on the phone for fifteen or twenty minutes? This happened to me yesterday, for the third time (same woman) and I felt as if she was treating me shabbily. When she returned, she made no reference to the fact that she had left me sitting there for a good long while. Am I wrong to feel this was rude on her part? Or am I overly sensitive? -Grace DEAR GRACE: It is extremely poor manners to leave a guest for 15 or 20 minutes unless a dire emergency arises. Most phone calls can be returned - unless of course the call is from overseas in which case the hostess should explain. If I were a guest and the hostess disappeared for 20 minutes to talk on the phone, she would find me gone when she returned. TO F.O.E. BINGO Monday, June 7th JACKPOT $165 - 58 Nos.

A meeting to discuss ideas and formulate plans for this display will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 21, at the home of Mrs. Raymond LaVal-ley, 2211 17 St., Coaldale.

If enough interest is indicated it is hoped to have a children's section too. rr�HE modern version of a A cottage industry is in full operation as 24,000 pounds of yarn is spun per year by Wool Carding and Spinning of Magrath. A long warehouse situated behind the apartment of Mr. and Mrs. John Moors of Magrath, is home to the rapidly growing industry which is owned and operated by Mr. Moors. Mr. Moors apprenticed as a textile engineer SO years ago and worked in many eastern Canada industries. Eight years ago he purchased the industry in Magrath and now works at his own pace in a field he loves. The plant employs 4 persons, including a bookeeper and the yarn output has increased from 8,000 pounds a year, to the current 24,000 pounds per year, Yarn from the industry is not only shipped to home knitters of western Canada, but to a factory in the east, whose woven articles, the Moors' outlet also sells. Virgin wool used in the plant is purchased by the carload from an eastern outlet although Mr. Moors said some of it is from New Zealand. Many 400-pound bales of nylon are also used in the nylon and nylon-wool blend yarns. The fibres are carded until a long fluffy "webb" is rolled of a specific weight per length. This webb is purchased by some people to weave into saddle blankets. The webb is then carded again on rollers of fine wire bristles and forms a thin strand which is easily pulled part. Mrs. Eleanor Witbeck, daughter of Mr. Moors and an employee in the plant, said these rollers would make a hand into mincemeat. The strands are then loaded on a "mule" which has 384 bobbins each of which reel out 72 inches of yarn every time the carriage moves out to spin the fibres. As the carriage moves out, it pulls the yarn taunt and spins it into a strong thread. The mule contains seven sets of clutches and Mr. Moors said each one has to be timed exactly on the dot. The individual strands are then combined to form the various ply yarns. Mrs. Witbeck said, "If the yarn is spun one way, it is combined the other direction, to make it very strong." Raw wool is also carded and layered into a soft and very fine "bat" of two to four pounds which are used for making quilts or comforters. Bats of CONTROLLED CONFUSION - Mrs. Eleanor Witbeck of Magrath attends 38 bobbins of yarn as it is wound onto a spool which will contain 10,040 yards cf thread to be spun into various ply yarn for knitting. Photos and story by Christine Puhl Staff Writer long fibres, are also sold to women who spin it into yarn with their fingers as they knit. There is no weaving or dying done in the Magrath plant and Mr. Moors always warns his customers to buy enough wool to finish a garment because fibres bought in dye lots are always just a little different and very difficult to match. Besides various plys of wool and nylon - wool blends, there are Fisherman and Aron types of wool and spinning rolls for Cowichan sweaters. This year, Mr. Moors plans to have a booth at the Lethbridge and District Exhibition so that more local people will find out about his industry and take advantage of locally manufactured merchandise.
