DO YOU HAVE ALL THE HOT WATER YOU NEED? If your home, or your family, or perhaps both, has grown since your present water heater was installed, chances are you're having problems. (Mom, if you do a load of wash and the dinner dishes, is there enough hot water left for everyone to take a shower? There should be.) And, unless you like cold water bathing, and shaving, and dishwashing, a big instant-heat gas water heater is by far your best answer. For one thing, gas heat is hot the instant it comes on ... recovery time in a gas water heater is the lowest possible. Equally important, a gas heater is the least expensive to operate . . . heating costs less than Va as much as electric water heating! The best performance, at the least cost — a short story, but one that describes Thermogas water heating perfectly. Thermogas water heaters are available in 30-, 40-, 50-, and 60-gallon capacities, and we now have low prices on all natural gas and LP-Gas models. Let us demonstrate gas water heating to you sometime soon. SO. PHILLIPS ST.

New Motorboat License Setup Aii act passed by the 1967 Legislature requires that Iowa resident motorboat owners must register their craft with the county recorder in the county in which they reside instead of with the Conservation Commission. Nonresidents are also required to register their motorboats with the county recorder in Iowa where the boat is principally used instead of with the Conservation Commission. The Conservation Commission will supervise the new program and furnish county recorders with forms used by individual boat owners and boat dealers. Boaters and boat dealers are urged to destroy any old forms they now have and to obtain the new forms from their recorder. Registration fees have been revised to include a writing fee paid to the county recorder for handling the transaction. The correct fee is shown on the new Iowa boat application. Under the new law, boat dealers and manufacturers will be allowed to issue "BoatRegistra- tion Applied for Cards'' which expire ten days after the purchase date. The buyer of the boat is to make application for registration to his county recorder within five days of the purchase date.
