Photograph article dated January 2, 1964 partially reads, "They've discovered another use for soap. And it's good, clean fun. Hobbyists across the nation are lathered up over soap decorating. They take bars of soap, decorate them with felt, paper cut-outs, bits of cloth and scraps and turn them into lions, pirates, baseball players, dancing girls and Easter eggs. Some imaginative hobbyists have even created soap Red Riding Hoods and lacey brides. It's inexpensive, it's simple and you can go just as far as your imagination will carry you."; See image #00117191 for additional photo in this series.
