HOUSEHOLD HINT* Family Lib "Death Wish 0 defrauds real life "Death Wish" is a movie which has enormous appeal to every father, husband or boy friend who has ever walked the streets of the city wondering if a mugger might be just Til!! movKhVch will confirm the self-righteous 'decision of every suburbanite who gathered up his fanny and fled the menace of the city. It is a movie whicji will delight those who live in the small towns and on the farms for it will verify their belief that, indeed, the city is nothing more than an ur- s" will delicious* titilate the "liberal" who has secretlv cherished a fantasy of striking back John WKl The" outlaws who threaten him And ^he movie will probably become a propaganda tool f°£ those who be lieve the so-called "good* people have a right to own a gun and under certain circumstances, use it against other peo- pl Briefly, this is the plot of the movie: Paul Kersey (played by Charles Bronson) is a "civilized" man living ana* workmg in New York City. His wife and daughter are brutally attacked by muggers; his wife dies and Tlis daughter is driven , wa.king the streets and ridin the subways, offering himself as bait for the muggers anB criminals who prey upon the law abiding citizen. When they snap at the bait, Kersey guns them down. After several k 11- ines the citv's mugging rate drops dramatically. The police fBly catch Kerslv but thev release him because he is the Methodist Women group 5 meets best weapon against muggers they have. In the darkness and anonymity of the movie theatre, thousands of men and women, black attd white, have cheered and applauded the actions of Paul Kersey. They have done so because they identify first with his sense 6f helplessness, and then with his confrontation of his oppressor, his enemy, in a one-to-one, primitive way - and succeed. The fact is that most of us feel helpless to control those situations which daily insult our lives: we are polluted, overtaxed, underpaid, our work appears to be meaningless and we are faced with crises without end. The movie supplies us with a fantasy answer, a simplistic solution of justice swift, sure and certain. . . While the movie makes us to do something about the problems which surround us, to overcome our apathy and m- differency, it cheats us of any realistic resolution. What we cheer in "Death Wish" is not vigilantism but a simple, successful solution to a complicated problem - in this case, crime in the streets. ,..,., , , . Meanwhile, in a world not filled with film and fantasy, hundreds of citizen groups around the nation are daily trying through legal means to combat crime, aid police, monitor courts, effect positive anticrime measures. Theirs is an ongoing, complicated effort. "Death Wish" does them, and all of us concerned with violence in our society, a disservice.

It's the season of the year when those who do home sewing begin to think about getting fall and winter wardrobes ready. There is no better way to find out about fabric and its care than to read the labels before you buy. Look for the label on the end of the bolt of fabric. The label will reveal the fiber content, width, shrinkage, price per yard, and the finishes that have been used. The label will also include brief care methods. Be sure to ask the sales clerk for the permanent care label that should be attached to the finished garment. Wanda Williams, county Extension agent - home economics, says there are several points to make before making a final fabric selection. Most dark fabrics are treated with some type of finish. In the finishing process, the crosswise yarns are sometimes pulled out of line. Many of the special performance finishes permanently lock the fibers into position. To determine how much a fabric is finished off grain, roll about a yard and match the selvages carefully, then fold back to one-half yard. Check the fabric and the design carefully. The fabric ends should be even. The fabric should also be free of wrinkles and buckles. Usually a 1 inch variation of yarn is considered acceptable. However, when the variation is more than this, you should think carefully before purchasing the fabric. This is especially true if the fabric happens to have a plaid or stripe design. Look carefully at fabric- construction to see if it is firmly woven or firmly knittted. The firmness assures longer wear. Check the color. It should be even throughout Alsn look carefully for flaws on both sides of the entire piece you plan to buy. If the fabric is folded, check the fold for fading. Fading can occur when the fabric has been exposed to sunlight or has been on display for a long period of time. Brush Care Don't use harsh detergents on natural bristle brushes with wooden handles. They weaken the bristles and these dry out and damage the wooden handle.
