While walking along a street in a city recently, a woman noticed a group of men and women standing close to a shop window. She worked her way through the crowd to see what the attraction might be. Inside stood a Chinese laundryman ironing men's shirts. Each person was intently watching the simple, skillful way he worked. Anyone can iron a shirt well, if he practices a good method. This bulletin presents a quick, simple method of ironing men's shirts. Women who have followed these directions have ironed a shirt in much less time than that required by their usual method and have improved the looks of the shirt.
