iites I am lifted out and put into an-'
other vat of developer liquid. In this
I turn from yellow to Dlack. All the
things that I looked at through the
little round hole in the funny looking
box appear in varying density on my
surface. After I have been in this
tank for a time a man who wears an
apron and heavy rubber gloves lifts
me out and completely submerges me
again in another tank called the hypo
bath. When I am taken out of this
I have turned completely black in
some places and am so clear in oth
ers that a person can see through me
by holding me up to the light
I am next placed in running water
and after a thorough wasning for
three-quarters of an hour I am hung
up to "drip." I am tightened up on
my rack every so often to keep me
from being marked by the corners of
the frame.
When I have dripped until all the
surplus water has drained off I am
then wound on a large drum and
"tickled" with a cloth which takes up
more water. Then I am put in a
rack in a room of even temperature,
where the drum revolves with me un
til I am dry.
Now I am a negative. To make
me a positive I am run through' an
automatic printer. This device has
sprockets which pull me in front of a
light Another film of equal length is
held in close contact to me by ma
chinery and we pass the light togeth
er. In this way they transfer what I
have seen to this new film, jvhich. be
comes the positive with the same
quality as a photograph.
The negative of me is now filed
away and I continue nty journey as a
positive. After being put through
the same process as a positive that I
went through as a negative I go to
the assembling room.v
'LITTLE SISTER'S" FROCK A
THING OF SCALLOPS
By Betty Brown
Though "little sister's" frock
should be as simple as her own sweet
self, there's one kind of adornment
that can scarcely be overdone in the
juvenile wardrobe, a"nd that is hand
embroidery.
"Hand sitches and tiny scallops,"
so Mme. Becker of the Fashion Art
League of America tells me, "are all
we are using this season.to 'fuss-up'
the frocks of the juvenile belles, but
we are using the scallops and the em
broidery lavishly and this same sim
ple trimming will be used later on
when we are making gingham and
cotton dresses instead of voiles and
silks."
Just how pretty the scallops may
be arranged on a little party frock
may be seen in this sketch of a Bick
er model. The dress is made up in
rose color voile embroidered in rose
color; the skirt that drops over a silk
foundation is scalloped and the tiny
scallops that edge the make-believe
jacket, the "baby" neck, the edges of
the three-quarter length sleeves, give
the dress sufficient trimming with-
out robbing it of its simplicity.
