Merger Set
For Wilson
And Miner
Washington's two city operat
ed teacher colleges will become
one institution in July.
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.
The merger was first suggest
ed some years ago, with Dr. Ha
ger as one of its first advocates.

90 per cent of the women in

well over half of this group
said TREND actually cuts
grease faster than the dish

been using. This proves you

Donohue, then District Commis

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!

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
