FUN - . . and GO" QUIZ-INFORMATION In case anybody should ask: the word "cereal" came from Ceres, Roman goddess of agriculture. Ceres would consider this a divine idea: Crush cornflakes between two folds of waxed paper; use them instead of bread crumbs a-top your next casserole. Dot with butter, sprinkle with gra,ted cheese, if you like. ' SKIP STORMS Cut up your old clothesline for jump- ropes! "Go : modern" with gas clothes dryer, before another Summer storm spoils washday. Year around, day or night, wash without a weather-worry. A gas clothes dryer doesn't demand watching, toting or fretting! Today's dryers wear dials; every type of fabric can be dried at proper heat and gentjeness. Gentle hint! Your local gas com' pany pr neighborhood gqs appliance dealer displays them. CHAD IDEA Praise the long the cut long- stem m e d glories, in a tall, vase before the hearth. As lower blopms fade, I clip them off, shorten stems and move flowers to a silver pitcher on the coffee table. Two days later, sterns and blooms shorten again; i-emajniug wray moves to my brass teapot- kast, fajr-from- least, top blossoms a™ plucked off j floated in ft low CUES FOR COLLEGE Getting Daughter's college wardrobe ready? 'These Even the ""bulky" sweater can be washed at home with new cold-water soaps especially made for woolens. Knit dresses, however, retain better hemlines and silhouettes if they're dry-cleaned. Can velveteens and jerseys be laundered? Mind the manufacturer's labeled comments. Or test first, by cuttipg a piece from an inside seam. Launder it; dry it. Like it? Then do the garment. '• CORNED-BEEF CASSEROLE I'm for quick- fix casseroles, to bake while I'm out of the kitchen! So is Mrs. Willard M. Sebrant, Minneapolis, Minn. Here's he* favorite: 'Cook one 8-oz. package spaghetti till tender. Simmer y 9 cup diced onion in l fa cup butter. Combine with 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup and one can milk, 1 small can mushrooms (juice and' all), 1 can corned beef, crumbled, plus blanched spaghetti. Mix lightly; fold in ft lb. grated cheese. Place in buttered casserole. Sprinkle 1 cup buttered bread crumbs on top. Bake one hour in 350-degree gas oven. SUPER.SCRUB Timely word from Mru. Robert Steig of Nevada, Iowa: Potatoes, carrots, radishes and other fresh vegetables "come clean" in a jiffy, if you scrub Mem with, a plastic scourer, ; PIPINP PLPASURE Ancient Chinese piped natural gas through bamboo.

It's owned by J. E. Fox, North Carolina logging contractor. As Bobby Fox, a partner in\ the business says, "Loaded with pulpwood, we drive over stumps 1 and potholes you'd think would ". ijjatf.iljlpttritck to'pieces. These trails would shake the cab off an ordinary truck, but not our Chevy. We can average an extra load a day . .. make $45 to $50 a day more with this Chevy than we can with the others."
