Teacher''Aasociation official last night called for a restoration of funds to assist the program for retarded children. Mrs. John Steele of Council No. 6 of the PTA, said the Com missioners should provide funds for 50 more teachers and two psychologists to help retarded children. Speaking before the District Americans for Democratic Ac tion at Pierce Hall, Sixteenth and Harvard street N.W., Mrs. Steele said that in asking for school funds here one could "cut the total figure in half and pray for a quarter.” Senator Neuberger, Democrat, of Oregon urged that the bill for Federal aid to education not be tied in with such issues as segregation, because it should “stand on its own feet." He said those who believe otherwise “are not friends of Federal aid to education.” The District ADA voted to make pledges to the Metropol itan Police Boys’ Club when it permits integration.

The merger of Wilson and Miner Teachers’ Colleges was ap proved yesterday by the Board of Education. Dr. Walter E Hager. Wilson president, will head the combined college, and Dr. Matthew J. Whitehead presi dent of Miner, will become one of three new deans. The other two deans will be Dr. Paul O. Carr, now registrar at Wilson, and Miss Hope Lyons, dean of students at Miner.

That's what Mrs. Wil liam Kurstin of 1354 Tewkes bury Place N. W„ Washington, D.C., wrote after testing TREND. Read What Women Say About Trend 1 Space doesn’t permit us to re port all of the wonderful things that Washington housewives had to say about TREND. How ever, we’ve tried to include ex amples from women you may know, such as; | "I think i I TREND la o! 1 simply won- j ■ derful pro- K duct; and I fe shall certain -1 ly continue to I H use it."

DOM t MISS IT f COMPARE TREND FOR VALUE |l school system, of which the col-1 leges are part. Both colleges dropped racial restrictions last fall and Wilson enrolled 36 colored students for the fall term. The colleges also have opened their classes to ex change students this year. School Supt. Hobart M. Cor ning recommended the merger to the school board. He also proposed the administrative ap pointments. To Outline Duties Dr. Corning said he will pro pose specific duties for the three new deans at next month’s j board meeting. . The superintendent made no i proposal for naming the merged I college. He also made no pro posal for future housing. He had already announced that the two colleges would remain in their present buildings for the next school year. Dr Hager. 59. has been Wilson president since 1941. Previously | he was a professor at Teachers’ j College, Columbia University, and a high school teacher and school superintendent in Ne braska. Dr. Whitehead, 47, was ap pointed president of Miner two years ago. Formerly assistant 'Lifts Off' Dried Egg, Cereal; Dishes Sparkle Without Wiping Scientists said that'TREND has the fastest grease-strip ping action ever developed. And you Washington home makers proved it! More than 90 per cent of the women in the TREND “compare” test agreed that nothing they’ve used can beat TREND when it comes to grease-cutting. And well over half of this group said TREND actually cuts grease faster than the dish washing products they had been using. This proves you can actually see how much better TREND works, right in your own dishpan. TREND Rinses Off 1 9 n ■■ "TREND is terrlflcl It Just rinses! grease off j pots and! pans, leaves dishes and glassware s parkllngj bright. And yet TREND! is so much milder on my hands than other products," says Mrs. Roso N. Miletti, 1361 Tewkes bury Place N.W., Washington, D. C. Yes, Mrs. Miletti. that is one of the wonderful things about TREND. K rinses off completely, taking grease and dried foods right off. Made for Your Dishpan ! TREND has been scientifi j cally made for your dishpan. Combined with its fast grease cutting action is a mildness that can’t be matched by even leading toilet soaps. Skin tests prove that TREND is less ir ritating, therefore milder, than | any soap you can use for your I dishes. The reason is simple: TREND is a neutral sudser. It contains no alkali, no acid. Yes, I TREND actually babies your hands. l registrar at Howard Universityl and an instructor at North Car olina State Teachers' College and New York University, he joined | the Miner faculty in 1952. Dr. Hager attracted wide pub licity in 1950 when he proposed in an .annua! report to Dr. Cor ning that Wilson and Miner be merged. Two year’s later, F. Joseph Donohue, then District Commis sioner, made a similar proposal. It was never considered by the school board officially, however. New Quarters Long Sought Aside from the merger pro posal, Dr. Hager and other offi cials have, long sought to get Wilson new quarters. In the early 19305, the building was vacated by students for a yeai to permit repairs of serious cracks and other bad conditions. In 1940, school officials sought funds—unsuccessfully—to plan a new building. Three years ago, the school board approved a proposal for two new $5 million buildings to house both colleges separately. The Commissioners excluded this from the city’s public works plan as too costly, however, and offi cials since have considered pos ing finer, safer or more effective for washing fine fabrics. But your response to TREND has been even more enthu siastic than we dared hope for. Hundreds and hundreds of Washington women have compared TREND against their favorite washing products. And TREND has won out on every count! More than nine out of ten women who participated in this test reported that no soap or suds they’ve used could EL jHi “TREND sura is tha finastl Such wonderful, long-lasting suds; fin# for dishes, light laundry and woodwork. TREND does the trick and still smooths hands," says Bertha M. Grabill, 1401 Tuckerman St. N.W., Wash ington. Women Say Trend Fine for Nice Things Gives Rich Suds in Cool Water for Fine Fabrics TREND scored again with Washington housewives when it came to laundering their own personal things nylons, silks, woolens, Orlons and rayons. And this, as you well know, is one of the most criti cal appraisals a woman can make. Many, many housewives who tried TREND for their fine washables made special men tion on their survey returns about how thorough yet gen tle—TßEND was on their finest fabrics. -TREND is so very safe— I my future! choice fori washing all I my delicate I fabrics." says I Mrs. LaVernel Malone. 2620 1 South Wavne, I Arlington, Va. ■ Sevareid Given Hillman Award NEW YORK.

Then, notice how much TREND saves on your household budget. ♦ One of the big reasons why TREND Is preferred by so many Washington women is because of its mildness to hands. Nine ty seven per cent of the house wives participating in the sur vey said that TREND is as mild or milder than the prod uct they have been using in the past. Proved by Skin Tests This overwhelming evidence In actual home use proves beyond doubt the independent laboratory tests that show TREND is milder to your skin than even leading toilet soaps. Even when tested Against other leading sudsers, TREND showed less effect on women of all types of complexions. And why not? For TREND is neutral not acid or alkali.

I f Wins Outstanding Approval for All Qualities Tested The final vote in TREND’S daring public comparison test Is in and TREND has won a resounding victory with Wash ington women. More than nine out of ten housewives say that TREND can’t be surpassed for dishwashing. "And I’m certain ly happy I discovered TREND’* is a typical comment from hun dreds of women. More than ninety per cent of the women also say nothing is milder om skin than gentle TREND. Space doesn’t permit listing all the reasons women gav# us for preferring TREND. But when it came to washing dishes, most women were de lighted with TREND’S grease cUtting ability. And they loved the way TREND left their handa soft and smooth, too. "TREND not only dissolves grease i n a hurry with out wrecking my hands, but those r i eh, long lasting! TREND suds | have such a i pleasant, fresh smell." v\*lte* Mrs. Theodore Kirsch of 1372 Underwood St. N.W., Washing ton, D. C. Yes, Mrs. Kirsch, and TREND’S suds work harder, too. They quickly cut grease from even your stickiest pots, pans and casserole dishes. Women Praise Mildnees Mildness to skin is a very important factor in a dishwash ing product, according to most of the women who participated in the TREND test. And this question of “mildness” is one reason TREND gained such an immediate acceptance. As on# woman remarked, “I use no other dishwashing suds but TREND, because it doesn’t irri tate my hands.” Suds That Last Even if you are troubled with hard water, TREND suds last and last, too. Many women re ported that you need use very little in your dishpan for thor ough cleaning. "A little TREND goes a long way” is how a number of women put it. Your best guide is to use just enough TREND to maintain one or two Inches of suds during the entire washing period. ‘Trend’ Suds Last, Housewives Report One thing that stood out again and again in the reporta from Washington housewives was the ability of TREND’* suds to last—until the job was done. Why not try It and see sot yourself? Notice how little TREND It takes to make a billowy mountain of rich suds And watch how those suds laid and last —even in cool wa ter.
