Jim decided that he needed some, paint and a new brush; and planned to take that furniture out in the backyard next Saturday afternoon for the annual cleaning-up process. Curious, but men a!j over the country are now thinking of paint, and seeds, ancl outdoor games. And —a new hat, a new suit and some new shirts. And maybe the women don't feel the urge to buy new things!. And why shouldn't they? Why be content with old things when there is money for new?
