VERMILLION -- When Martin Luther King delivered his "I have a dream" speech 50 years ago this week, the University of South Dakota and a Woonsocket native had already started implementing King's dream of equality.

He was nearly a decade ahead of King's 1963 speech and 1966 NCAA Division I champion Texas Western's all-black starting five.

Dear Heloise: My husband is retired from the military and has some old uniforms we'd like to store. Some are heavily starched. Should I wash out the starch before I store them? -- A.L., Huntsville, Ala. Good question! Before storing a uniform, you want to make sure it is clean, of course. Some experts say you don't have to remove the starch, but it can cause permanent creases in uniforms when stored. Others (me included) think you should wash (if the uniform is washable) out the starch. If they are "dress" uniforms, do have them professionally cleaned.
