Check the battery for corrosion at the terminals and clean if necessary. A light solution of baking soda and water will work wonders. Also, clean the top of the battery case with a damp cloth and check the water level. If the solution is below the plates, a^d water until the plates are covered. 2, Check the water in the radiator. If low, add cither water or anti-freeze coolant if your car is air-conditioned. 3, Check belts and hoses for sign of wear. A tug on your belts will tell you if they are tight. While the car is cold, feel the worn parts of your hoses to see if they are about to split. Replace if excessive wear is shown. 4. Check the oil level by pulling the dip stick when the car is not running. Reinsert the dip stick after you have wiped it off. Repull it to check fluid level markings and have oil added at your local service station if low. While you're there have them check the transmission fluid. The car must be running and hot enougli to show the correct reading. 5. Check your windshield wiper water reserve bag and add water if low. 6. Look at your tires. If the tread is o'uviously worn or the sidewalls are seriously cut or bruised, have your service station check them and advise you whether or not to have them replaced. Also, have the air pressure checked to meet the manufacturer's recommended load pressure. These simple checks c-in help Gas Watchers make 5 gallons of gasoline do thu work of 6, plus warn you in advance that you are going to h.ive trouble. The Motor Club of Iowa asks all motorists to get into the habit of making these checks. Then, the old saying "A Clean Car Runs Better" will come true for you. DR. Planning A Wedding? See us for ....

Fertilizing Vegetables Pays Off Probably the single most important step the home garden 2r can take to improve vegetable ' yield is to fertilise, just as farmers do. A common mistake among homeowners is believing that garden compost will provide adequate plant nutrients. Compost made mainly from grass clippings and kitchen wastes break down to make a good soil conditioner, but are generally lacking in enough plant nutrients to really make a significant difference in growth. To get the best possible yield from a home vegetable garden, a fertiliser designed specifically for vegetables should be used. It will provide the essential nutrients in sufficient amounts and proper balance. Some of the newer vegetable garden fertili/ers are formulated to be used on a wide variety of vegetables -- whether leaf, root or fruit crops — which makes them very convenient to use. Especially convenient is a fcrtili/er such as Scotts new Vegetable Garden Fcrtili/er, which can be applied at planting time, is easily sprinklf d on dry right from its package, and is so long-lasting that one feeding per crop is usually enough. THE TITONKA TOPIC May 22, 1975 — Page 3 — Camping And Picnicing Season Is Here DES MOINES: Iowa's state parks are in excellent shape and well prepared for another busy year according to Joe Brill, Superintendent of Parks for the Iowa Conservation Commission.
