D. Fire Drills For Homes Suggested This morning's paper had three columns with phtographs of devastating fires that took the lives of four children, two adults and two firemen. It was a shocking portrait o f ' t h e unnecessary waste of lives in an era so filled with medical and surgical advances. Children are. safeguarded from the crippling devastation of 'polio, the aftermath of complications f r o m measles, mumps, diptheria, and tetanus. Adults are saved by heroic heart surgery and cancers are cured by cobalt radio therapy. T h e s e lives are often sustained only to be sacrificed later by carelessness and total disregard for the death-dealing fire hazards that needlessly exist in our own homes. Families and communities spend vast amounts of money for hospitals, physicians, and medications in order to restore the health of a single member of" the family stricken by disease. Yet rarely can these same families be induced to inspect, find and remedy the fire risks that surround them and threaten their destiny. For more than half a century, the National Fire Protective Association,,in cooperation with local fire services, has devoted itself to educational campaigns to reduce the senseless wascte of housands of lives by preven- able fires. SAFETY RULES The Tnstitute for Home Fire .afety suggests: 1) Keep all matches in metal containers out of'the reach of h e children. Fuel-burning ighters tempt children readily. 1) Get into the habit of ireaking or tearing the match n half before throwing it away n order to he sure that it is out. Use safety matches and be iure to check them'for "after glow." 3) Rid : the home of all in l a m m a b l e (now called 'flammable") g a s o l i n e s serosenes; and fuel oils, unles ';ept in approved safety cans. 4) Do not smoke in bed. Thi is the leading cause of deatl by fire. Nobody ever expect to fall asleep while smoking, ye many do, and thus they com promise the lives of realtives A few drinks are all that needed to make a bed smoke a threat to his and other lives. 5) Be sure that all eleotri appliances and their 'wirin met the rigid rules of safet of the Underwriters Laboratorj REGtIL A R DRILLS All public office buildings hospitals," schools,' and ir slitutions- of all kinds hav regular orderly, fire drills. Why,hot the home? . W i t h-o u t introducing th elements of fear a l - I childre and adults must play an-activ role in finding and eliminatin the obvious and the hidde sources of potential fire. A constructive family projec establishes in advance exactl what each person is to d should a fire start. This routin fire drill should be planne three or four times a year t emphasize the changing respon sibility of each member of growing family. . Many safe,'simple firefightin devices are available. Thes should be kept readily cessible, especially in the ki chen. The home of a patient of min was destroyed when a spotligh set fire to a bird's nest unde the cornice of the roof. Foi tunatcly, no lives were lost, hu it emphasizes the lurkin dangers from fire. Crossword By Eugene Sbeffer ACROSS l.Pack firmly 5. Tennis stroke 8. Fuel 12. Concept 13. Overwhelm 14. Comply 15.

The bidding on this hand was certainly out of the ordinary. North's club bid and South's spade response were both fairly normal, but on his next bid North was faced with an unusual problem. He had only 12 high-card points, but -- considering his highly irregular distribution and S o u t h ' s tantalizing spade response -- a small or a grand slam both loomed as very distinct possibilities. There were many different bids North could double Lightner' which requested t lead by West.
