Members of the East Long Beach Neighborhood Council are scheduled to elect 1969 officers when they meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Neighborhood Center, 2338 E. Anaheim St. A committee from the Council is contacting all nominees, who will be presented to Council members at the Thursday meeting. Eight of them -all low-income Council members -- will be elected. Craft Hints Offered at L.B. Library Nothing is sacred when Long Beach Public Library borrowers come home loaded with craft books and pamphlets. The most u n e x p e c t e d household items start disappearing: soap powder, nuts and bolts, felt weather stripping and cube sugar. With a drop of liquid cement, nuts and bolts become hardware jewelry-handsome, too. Sugar cubes and soap powder make interesting geometric designs and textured plaques which will neither attract ants nor get sudsy, provided they're treated according to instructions. Disposable containers, plastic and otherwise, are not junk to the do-it-your- selfer. They are marvelous shapes to be converted into other shapes and uses (the farther from the original: use the better). Everyday household aids furnish texture and color. Scraps of cheesecloth and spray starch make great "touch me" plaques. AND WOULD YOU think that "dirt paintings" could be so interesting? Patricia W i r t e n b e r g ' s "All-Around-the-House Art and Craft Book," found in the Boys' and Girls' Room at the library, includes instructions for making these items and many more. Egg-carton craft, candlemaking, b u r l a p work and papier mache are just a few of the popular crafts c o v e r e d by books and pamphlets in the Art Department on the second floor. Overnight, something new -- or something old enjoying a revival becomes the rage. It may be those, big flamboyant paper flowers, bread dough sculpture or shell craft. Everyone wants instructions for making them at once. In order to fill the demand, librarians find that a number of inexpensive pamphlets on individual crafts do more good than a moderate number of more expensve hardback books which include many craft ideas. If the fad dies down, never to be revived, the pamphlet investment has not been great hut service has been good. illiiimmilNiiiimiimiimmimNmiMimiiiiiiiiiimimmimiii Scholar Wins Library Award Karol Baldwin, an em- ploye of the Long Beach Public Library since 1954, Tuesday was awarded a $500 scholarship by the Inez Dean Scholarship Board.

Fury III is the car that helped win over three-quarter million competitive owners in the last two years. It's a whole new Plymouth. A big Plymouth. With a 120 inch wheelbase that's longer than Chevy Impala; an overall length that's greater than Ford Galaxie. And when you add in the class exclusives spelled out above, the differences become even greater. That's the way we build quality into Plymouths, why we can tell it like it is. Fury I outscores the other 59 cars entered in the Union/Pure Oil Performance Trials. A1969 Plymouth Fury I turned in the best class-winning percentage of any car entered in the 12th Annual Union/Pure Oil Performance Trials. Fury scored 98.84 out of a possible 100 in the event, one of the most comprehensive tests of production cars in America. All cars entered were judged on braking, acceleration and economy. That's the way it is when you stack up Fury against competition. You wind up with a car that has a lot more going for it, inside and out. 6REATI Fury III Special Now, reduced prices during The GREAT!
