Sims, recent addition to the (■leaning staff of the Aggie Clean ers at the North Gate. It is possible to mistake the {cause of certaiji stains on cloth ing and use the wrong spot re mover, he says. Although it is not the cleaner’s intention, permanent spots sometimes result. Sims is the Aggie Cleaners’ “se cret weapon.” A recent graduate of the Institute of Cleaners and Dyers in Silver Springs, Mary land, he brings to College Station the latest information and know how from the cleaning world and hopes to make College Station “next to Godliness” if cleanliness will do it. Sims’ boss is Curtis Eden, part- owner and manager of the Aggie Cleaners. Edesn hopes that with the “secret weapon” they will be able to perforin n better service for the people of College Station. The Aggie Cjleaners have been serving Aggies in all their spot and dirt removing needs from their present location; for 18 years. Eden says that between 500 and 600 garments come in every day to be serviced, an^ in connection with this volume of business some 2000 coat-hangers go out each week.
