The Leavenworth Times from Leavenworth, Kansas (2024)

THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10, 1952. Thirteen College Grid Foe for The LA Rams DELAFIELD, Aug. 9 (M)- The College All-Stars, less than a week away from the annual game in Chicago with the professional football champions, boast a squad that has no apparent weaknesses. Two weeks of virtual day long practice sessions for the Aug. Bobby Dodd Soldier Field counter with the Los Angeles Rams have left the coaching staff optimistic.

There has been only one serious injury and, despite a great amount of secrecy surrounding practices, insiders report the squad has caught on rapidly to Bobby Dodd's T-offensive and tricky defense. The charity game is the 19th: in an unbroken series going back to 1934. Of 18 games played, the AllStar collegians have won six, lost ten and tied two. Dodd, the Georgia Tech mentor who was chosen head coach of the All-Stars for this year's game, has the usual quota of All-Americas of every hue, description and position on his squad of 54. Dodd and his assistants are openly enthusiastic about the efficiency and depth displayed so far in every and defensively.

They don't find any real weaknesses anywhere. They actually haven't expected! any. Just about every 1951 college senior that shone on the gridiron is available to them. Still, that's been the case in all of the games and the All-Stars have lost more. than they've won.

problem isn't and never has been -manpower. It's mainly a question of taking a half hundred odd football stars, some of them already legendary campus heroes, and fashioning from this conglom-(even eration a workable football machine. And there isn't much time. Whether the obvious man-forman brilliance of this 1952 assemblage, welded somehow into a team, will be up to the precision of the Los Angeles powerhouse can't possibly be known until next Friday night.

Needlecraft News by Nancy Baxter CAN still remember the sense of pride I got when my patient mother taught me the art of embroidery and I was able to stitch colorful designs and pictures on doilies and aprons. Mom showed me the stitches she had learned from mother, who, in turn, was taught by her parent, In most cases, here love for embroidery has been passed on through the ages in just that way.

During the late 16th century in Europe, elaborate embroidery was extremely popular. Robes, coverlets and pictures for wall panels were richly embroidered in expensive threads on fine materials: Biblical scenes and religious studies were the favorite subjects for these pieces of needlework. As trade by sea became more extensive during the Renaissance, embroidery trends. changed. Sea captains returned home to tell of all the strange, wild beasts, and they the had seen in.

new women tried, as well as possible, to reproduce pictures of the animals, according to the descriptions, in embroidery on draperies and other wall hangings. The Orient influenced embroidery fashions when sea routes were opened farther Eastward. Embroidery began on the North American continent with the Indians who used porcupine quills and strips of animal skins in making their designs. Of course, the European influence was brought to America with the colonists. Pioneering wives considered embroidery a luxurious pasttime because materials were not accessible on the newlydiscovered continent.

As the country has grown, embroidery as a pleasurable pasttime has been carried on by the American women throughout each phase of our history.
