The troops are well supplied with basic food items but enjoy the "extras" that spice up a meal. Anything that flavors water or milk, such as envelopes of pre-sweetened soft drinks or cocoa is welcomed. Reading material is appreciated, including paperbji ' books especially mysteries and westerns. Men who are from a city or organized area can while away their off-duty hours with games.

In case you are still weighing one gift against another, here are some ideas which may prove helpful: To help families and friends puzzled about what to send their men in Vietnam, several returned veterans were asked for suggestions. Number one on every serviceman's hit parade is mail from home especially letters with recent snapshots of family and friends enclosed. According to one Air Force officer, an ideal gift would be " a pledge to write your serviceman every day." One veteran marine suggested that all photographs be wrapped in plastic before mailing to protect them against the damp. Since the mail often is dropped, picked up and delivered in the rain, he said it has a good chance of getting wet before it reaches the serviceman. And for the growing number of men who have tape recorders, tapes from home are ideal gifts. As one veteran said, "The men play their tapes so often that we all have them memorized." Still a popular gift item is homemade candy, cookies or cake. These should be packed in tins and popcorn should be used as a filler to cushion the jolts and absorb the moisture. Other items in demand are canned fruits and cans of small OPEN MONDAY THRU THURSDAY 8:30 TO 5:00 OPEN FRIDAY 8:30 TO 9:00 OPEN ALL DAY SATURDAY 9:00 TO 5:00 CIIRISTMASflcSALE A $30.45 VALUE TYPEWRITER STAND ."Z Qorhmn's i II II montht iiuptdion, odiuilminl ond lubrication, typing paper, Hornt typing iouisi book.

It is also a time of coughs and colds brought on by wintery weather and lowered resistance stemming from the fast pace of holiday activities. Quick action at the first sign of coughs or colds can keep them from spoiling the Christmas season for the entire family. Although science hasn't come up with a cure for the common cold as yet, there are ways which will make a patient feel more comfortable and help him eirect a speedier recovery. Here are some suggestions for dealing with a cold as set forth by the U.S. Public Health Service: 1. Go to bed when you first feel a cold coming on. 2. Drink plenty of liquids water, soups, fruit juices and milk. i. Eat moderately of appetizing foods which agree with you. I. Keep dishes and towels separate from those used by others. 5. Call a doctor in the event of high fever, severe headache, achiness, chest pains, hard coughing spells or earache. An ounce of prevention can mean a happier new year. so With $ 139 Trad .
