itllifiiiiL Hoytomake safe holder for torch Not long ago, I passed along an easy way to mane a holder for your propane torch from a tall can and a wood block. This is so you can stop for a few moments and put your torch down without worrying about it being Knocxed over. Another reader sent me his idea for a holder, which I just made. You start with a 2-by-6 scrap, and you use the bottom of the propane cylinder to, draw its outline. It's slightly less than' 3 inches in diameter. Then use a hole cutter in a drill to cut the hole in the center of the scrap. Next I used a scrap of pegboard that I cut to a square about 4 inches larger than the THE SUPHT MlWmi By ALCARRELL first scrap. I glued and nailed this to the first scrap as a base. I use a hole in the pegboard to hang up. the holder when it s not in use. It's less in the way than the can-on-a-block holder, which I still have, too. DEAR SUPER HANDYMAN: When using a furniture stripper, the sludge that you scrape up is a real mess. I have found a way to better control the mess when stripping a table or other large, flat surface: I use a dustpan to scrape the sludge into. I keep a garbage can nearby and dump the sludge when the dustpan is full. T.K. DEAR SUPER HANDYMAN: When you get a new car, you try to take bet ter care of it. I have been washing my new car every week and I soon found that the wire spoke wheel covers were a challenge. I have solved it with an old baby bottle scrub brush. It can get into the otherwise impossible places. I have also used it on a couple of areas on the grill that are hard to get to. S.M. ' DEAR SUPER HANDYMAN: A lot of the so-called table wines come in large jugs. I have found that because they have a ring-type handle made into the glass, they can be helpful in storing and pouring shop compounds. The jugs can be used for either dry or liquid compounds. I use a funnel to transfer the compounds into the jugs. " Pouring from the jug gives you more control and less mess than many of the original containers. The glass contain ers also let you see at a glance how much of a particular compound is left and the screw-on caps give you an air tight seal. As with anything that's been transferred into a container where it doesn't belong, you must be sure to prominently label the container so there's never a doubt about the con tents. I get corrugated boxes from the package store with dividers for the; wine bottles and use these in my shop to hold the jugs. DEAR SUPER HANDYMAN: I've even seen professional painters who make a mess when pouring the paint from its can into a roller tray. It's a little slower, but I use a big metal soup ladle to dip out the paint and put it in the tray. I got this from a restaurant supply place that was going out of business, so it cost practically nothing. Since I never use anything but latex paint, I can rinse my stainless steel la dle clean after use. It makes no mess. Of course, I make enough mess as I ap ply the paint. W.J.T. SHOP TALK-Black & Decker has a new vise called Quick Vise. It has up to a 12-inch capacity and will open in a snap. It can be used to grip either hori zontally or vertically. While the base can be permanently attached to your bench top, the vise can be completely removed when not in use so you have more room with less chance of banging into it. A SUPER HINT - Because a shop vacuum cleaner is subjected to rough treatment and heavy grime, the wand and accessories can get stubborn' about fitting together. A good cleaning, plus a thin coating of petroleum jelly, will remove the problem and preclude its happening again. My wife, Jean, liked the idea so well that, she has used it inside with the built-in! vacuum attachments. (The Super Handyman's btofctot, "Fish tins Ml-dew Around Yeur House," li now avslabte.

She's looking for other driver DEAR ANN: I know from reading your column that you get some really odd letters, but this one is bound to rate in the top 10 on your list I hope it's not too off-the-wall to print because I really need some advice. I'm a truck driver, female. Although most of my work is done locally, I've driven many freeway miles. I've been cut off, rear-ended, whistled at, stared at, have witnessed many obscene gestures and have been followed to my destination. For some reason I take it all in stride. It's just another working day to me. I pass and get passed by several hundred people weekly. But then for the first time in my life I saw a man I want to meet. He was on the 1-10 freeway going toward Los Angeles. It was 10:30 at night He exited the freeway in West Covina after staring at me for miles. I shot him a few looks, too, but traffic got heavier and I paid more attention to the road. He was in an older model Chevy pickup 1869-73 or so dull silver paint set up for a service of some kind with a flat rack. Ann, that was two nights ago. I've made that trip twice since, and I can't stop thinking about the guy. I don't know a thing about him except what I've told you. That, and the exciting vi brations I got as we drove down the These math are easy for My husband, Jack the Clipper, is forever ripping articles out of the pa per, drawing arrows to the part I should read, and then stuffing them in my typewriter. It is usually something we have ar gued about and the article completely agrees with his point of view. His latest "finding" points out that researchers who have spent several years studying gifted children in mathematics found out they are twice as likely to be left-handed, six times as likely to have allergies, and five times as likely to be nearsighted and male! As coincidence would have it, my husband is left-handed, has allergies, is nearsighted and male.' Frankly, I am sick to death of men claiming mathematical supremacy over women. Any country that is run by men and has a national deficit of 200 billion dollars doesn't have any reason for throwing hats in the air. Add to that the fact that men have not had a balanced budget in this country since Alexander Hamilton and you've got a lot of right-handed men in the wrong places. If men want a mathematical chal lenge, women could give them a couple. Can they multiply a pound of ham burger, divide it by six people and end up with a balanced meal?

By ALFRED SHEINWOLD When South showed one ace by bidding five diamonds in response to 4NT, North plunged into a grand slam, hoping that South had the king of spades. South took the king of clubs, drew two rounds of trumps, cashed the ace of clubs and ruffed a club. He then took the ace of hearts, ruffed a heart, ruffed another club and ruffed his last heart. This left him in dummy with three diamonds and a club. Since West still had a trump declarer couldn't lead the 13th club. South dealer Both sides vulnerable .

Soulh West North Easl 1 Pass 3 Pass 3V, Pass 4 NT Pass SO Pass 7 All Pass Opening lead- 9 Forgetting Albert Einstein's statement that time is the fourth dimension, South was in the right place at the wrong time. After drawing two trumps South should take the ace of hearts and ruff a heart, followed by the ace of clubs and a club ruff. He ruffs his last heart, then another club. South then draws the last trump and leads the king of hearts. Finally, South leads a diamond to dummy, landing in the right place at the right time to cash the last club as his 13th trick. Daily question: You hold: KJ987 OQ4 ?AK84 473 You open with one spade, your partner responds INT, you bid two hearts, and he then raises to three hearts. The opponents pass. What do you say? Answer Pass. Your partner will bid three hearts on almost any weak hand with four-card heart support. If his hand is weak enough, you won't make three hearts. If his hand could give you a decent play for game he would bid four hearts himself. 19M Los Angeles Times Syndicate Reubln Askew, AUn Cranston, John Glenn, Gary Hart, Ernest Holllngs, Jesse Jackson, George, McGovem, and WJter MonrlaJe Sponsored by the Des Moines Register SATURDAY - 8:00 P.M.

(AP) - To boost your chances of avoiding cancer, don't get fat or eat too much fat, the American Cancer Society says. A report adopted by the society's board of directors Friday also recommends that you eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and foods high in fiber and vitamins A and C, avoid heavy drinking and go easy on meat and fish that is smoked, pickled or salt-or nitrite-cured. The report, "Nutrition and Cancer Cause and Prevention," contains no surprises. The guidelines are general and do not recommend specific amounts of various foods for a cancer-preventing diet The report's admonition against obesity includes a warning that cancer risk is particularly high when a person is 40 percent or more above normal weight "No concrete dietary advice can be given that will guarantee prevention of any specific human cancer," the report says, adding that its suggestions are based on the best information now available and could change. The report also comments on a number of recent cancer-diet findings about which it says "there is insufficient evidence to make specific recommendations" now. It says there are no solid findings that vitamin E or selenium are cancer preventers and cautions that selenium is poisonous and should not be taken as South-side resident raped A 57-year-old woman was raped in her south-side apartment about 1:30 a.m. Friday, police said.
