Take the second handkerchief,
cut it in half, pleat each half,
bind with ribbon. Sew both
halves to bottom of the large
handkerchief. On the remaining
handkerchief, cut it across to form
two triangles. You'll find that if
you place the longest side of this
triangle up against the side of the
large handkerchief plus the small
front wing, it will be just about
the right length. Sew these trian
gles on either side, bind with the
ribbon, and you have a pretty and
colorful hand-made apron.

HAMILTON, N. Y. One of
the first pocket-size, books ever
printed has been given to Colgate
University. It is a copy of Ho
race's "Poemata," published in
Venice nearly four-and-a-half cen
turies ago by Aldus Manutius.
Gift of the late Dr. Arthur S.
Chittenden '95, of Binghamton,
the volume will be kept in the
university's rare book room.
Wanting to make books avail
able to the poor, the printer
Aldus invented the pocket-size
edition, around 1501. He also in
vented modern punctuation, italic
type and coined the phrase,
Aldus had employed a Negro
boy left behind by a merchant
vessel. Negroes were a rarity in
Venice and people began to say
Aldus was employing black art
and had a black imp of the devil.
To stop the rumor, Aldus ex
hibited the boy with the declara
tion that, "Be it known that I,
this day made public exposure of
the printer's devil. All who think
he is not flesh and blood may step
up and pinch him."

Australian Finds Way
To Remove Ramie Fiber
SYDNEY (AP) A Sydney
man claims to have found a cheap
way of recovering fiber from the
ramie plant. If claims of the in

Ramie is an East Asian shrub
that grows 3 feet to 8 feet high.
It lives for 10 to 20 years and
can be cut every six months. It
yields about one ton of fiber an
acre, compared with about 200
pounds of cotton an acre. The
Chinese have used ramie fiber for
weaving for 2000 years. They have
recovered the fiber by hand. Hun
drcds of machines have been in
vented and millions of dollars
have been spent in the search for
a mechanical way of separating
fiber from the wood, bark, and in
