le II TRUDIE PRINGLE displays an antique doll, one of many that she has renovated as a hobby. She gives the like-new dolls, completely wardrobed, to charitable organizations who distribute them. An 80 year old doll, delapidated, disassembled and well on the road to complete demolition started Trudie Pringle on a hobby that grew and grew to benefit many charitable organizations, bringing happiness to countless little hearts. The doll was given to her by a brother-in-law, and she set about the involved task of renovating the beautiful antique. So successful was the project, and so enjoyable did she find it that she began collecting old and broken dolls to be rebuilt. She bought them at auctions, often acquiring miscellaneous limbs, heads, and torsos by the boxful; she purchased them at rummage sales and second hand shops and at the Goodwill Stores, and when people learned of her work, many were given to her. First of all the dolls, and parts of dolls, were thoroughly cleaned and sterilized by a scrubbing in lysol solution and soap, after which the hair was treated with a human-hair conditioner. Eyelashes were replaced by new ones fashioned of the bristles of a soft paint brush. Limbs were re-attached with a special elastic obtained from a supply house. Stuffing was replaced and split seams sewn and Patterns made from paper napkins, laying them across the doll to be folded and traced to the desired form. The dolls are completely wardrobed, each wearing undergarments, shoes, sex and often hats and jewelry as well as attractive outer garments. Just like brand new, the dolls are then given to clubs to be distributed at Christmas. Mrs. Pringle sometimes personally presents them to needy children, also. The VFW auxiliary last Christmas was the recipient of 16 of Trudie's dolls, which were taken to Rainier School at Bob Bednarski High School Spotlight Bob Bednarski, a member el the Trailblazers Motorcycle Club, plans to take off after graduation for a solo trip to Wisconsin on his 250 cc Yamaha. "If the bike won't make it," he says, "I'll have a long walk." Bob is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert S. Bednarski and was born in Shelton on April 20, 1953. He likes to work with cars, and is a part-time employee of Gene Evers Texaco Station. He studies civics and German Christian Women Plan Luncheon Millie Zimmerman of the 'Sing Along With Millie' program on radio KGDN at Edmonds, will be the featured speaker at the and auto mechanics, and in his sophomore and junior years served as track manager and participated in the Rifle Club. In this, his senior year, he is an AFS member and belongs to the German Club and to the Science Club. He is also a member of the Shelton Rifle and Pistol Club, and he bowls on the Motorcycle Club team. He is a CYO member; he is a member of an Explorer Group working with law enforcement officers, and will train in radio communications from which he will progress into search and rescue work. "The organization was developed for fellows interested in going into law enforcement work," Bob explains, "and this is my intended career. I plan to attend Olympic Junior college to 31 Million Women Work Men still outnumber women three to two in the nation's workforce, but the gale are closing the gap. Over 31 million of them now toil in the workplaces of the country. Sheer numbers alone don't tell the whole story of women at work, however. Despite heroic efforts by such organizations as the Women's Bureau over the past half century, women are still being discriminated against in employment. Only about 7% of the physicians in the U.S. are women. A mere 3% are lawyers, same as 15 years ago. So much remains to be accomplished before it can truly be said that women are getting an even break with men where jobs are concerned. Another step in that direction is represented in meetings slated for five cities across the country next month, when the Women's Bureau will meet with labor and management to discuss job discrimination against women. The Women's Bureau hopes to learn more about how it can help employers and unions meet the requirements for compliance with anti-discrimination laws, and to bring about "affirmative action" to ensure equal opportunities for men and women at work. The national director of the Women's Bureau, Mrs. Elizabeth Duncan Koontz, will attend each of the one-day meetings to present an overview on the economic status of women, and existing discrimination that limits their opportunities. Mrs. Madeline Mixer, director of the Women's Bureau in the Far West region, will coordinate plans for the February 26 meeting, to take place in Boise, Idaho.
