Dawson and children, Lorraine, Clifford and Norris of Dallas, Oregon, arrived last Wednesday to visit several days With her father, Fred Rose, of Southslde. They just missed Mrs. Rose who left several days earlier for California. Friday a family reunion was held with Al- bert Rose of Kamilche, Frank Rose, and Art Rodgers and fam- ily attending.

A Tip From Your: l Cleaner l DON’T DRY CLEAN AT HOME v It is not safe to dry-clean in, your home. The use of a high‘ i -ly inflammable fluid invites dis- aster, and even non—explosive or noninflammable cleaning fluids are not safe to use in lingo quan- tities, as the vapors from them are toxic if inhaled to any ex— tent. However. it is safe to use these noninflammablc fluids in the small quantities required for removing stains, if the work is done in a well-ventilated room. -Another reason for not attempt— ing dry—cleaning at home is that good work cannot be done. Dry— cleaning is really a Washing process, using cleaning fluid in« stead_of soap and water. Large quantities of cleaning fluid. spee— i'al washing machines for thor— ough cleaning and rinsing, and equipment for clarifying the fluid are needed. If the fluid is not clarified. the cleaning process be— c0mesan expensive job. Spec— ial equipment is needed also for pressing and reshaping gar— ments. Only the good dry—clean— .r is equipped to do all this. ltogether. it is safer. much more satisfactory. and more eco— nomical. to send your clothes to a good cleaner. l ‘ BY IVIAIII: bei.
