THE T1P.TQN DAILY TRIBUNE PAGE 5 RAIL STRIKE NOV. 23—At negotiations in Chicago. James E. Wolfe (left). National Railway Labor Conference chairman, announces that the carriers will not offer more than the 9- cent annual pattern already given to other unions. The six unions setting a Nov. 23 strike demand a 10 per cent In-, crease plus 14 cents an hour plus an annual increase of 3.5; per cent thereafter. Alichael Fox (right), AFL-CIO Railway Department president, announces the strike deadline with, ' "Only if railroad management changes its course and're­ negotiates a satisfactory settlement before that time can the strike be avoided." The'six unions total 140,000 members. f,:\ 'W4 .flj 1 •fS n n •ft • # ••I . ft • ¥ - i Suggestions For Cutting Your Heating Bills The single biggest waste in home maintenance is caused by inefficient heating systems, reports the Construction Research Bureau, national clearing house for building information. With monthly heating bills in the average one- and two-family home ranging anywere from $20 to $400 for each winter month, a 20 per cent wastage of heat can add up to a considerable sum in hard earned money lost to the homeowner who must buy the fuel. Here, however, are a number of tips on efficient home heating compiled by the Bureau, which will, if followed, reduce wasted fuel during the long winter months ahead. 1. Locate your thermostat in a corner which is out of the way of any cold drafts which might come from open doors and windows. Having a thermostat near a street exit will result in a wasteful overheating of the entire house. Hot and Cold Walls 2. Be careful not to place the thermostat on a hot or cold wall. Hot walls are caused by insufficiently insulated chimneys adjoining them. Cold walls are. next to unhealed garages o r face open window areas. Both situations result in uneven furnace heating or overheating and consequent waste of fuel. Test the wall with your palm to see if it's hot or cold. 3. Dot not place the thermo- statef'near a television set. Most people are unaware of the great amount of heat a set gives off. This can affect the way the furnace works.' 4. Make sure the thermostat isn't near a floor lamp or table lamp. Heat from these also affect the furnate, causing too many stops and starts and leaving the house chilly for long periods, and overheating it at times also. No Kitchen Thermostat 5. Avoid putting the thermostat in the kitchen. Use of the oven and burners make it warmer than most of the other rooms and the result will be uneven heating of the entire house. 6. Weatherstripping,. caulking and insulation will present heat loss. Basement floors of concrete as well as piayroom floors will be warmer and more comfortable if covered "by a resilient tile such as Kentile Travertine in vinyl asbestos tile. 7. Fireplace chimneys often are responsible for much loss of heat when the homeowner fails to close the damper after the fire is out. 8. A properly operating humidifier will give more comfort at lower temperatures while using less fuel. Often you can obtain the desired humidity, by simply ' placing a dish at- water on the radiator to evaporate.

The Almanac By United Press International Today is Thursday, Nov. 19, the 324lh day of 1964 with 42 to follow. The moon is in full phase The morning stars are Venus, Mars and Jupiter The evening stars are Jupiter and'Saturn On this day in history: In 1863, President Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg address. In 1874, William Marcy Tweed, political "boss" of i Tammany Hall in New York, was convicted of defrauding the city of some S6 million. In 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was rejected by the U.S. Senate. On The Lighter Side - By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) —I have heard people say that they like to live in the nation's capital because it gives them a sense of participating in history, f That may strike you as a rather ridiculous thing for anyone to say, but I understand what they • mean. I • get the same feeling myself on occasions. •My sense of historic participation is particularly sharp whenever I c am witnessing a presentation ceremony at the Smithsonian Institution. During the .past few years, the Smithsonian has accepted for its collection such history- laden items as a World War II Jeep, a set of Burma Shave signs and the first silk purse ever made from a sow's ear. And I was there. I was there again this week when the 114-year-old Levi Strauss & Co. of San Francisco rendered unto the Smithsonian an historic pair of blue jeans. Or at least they were described as "historic" in the company's press release. Frankly, I thought the term was used rather loosely. These weren't the blue jeans that Marie Antionette wore to the guillotine, or that Hannibal wore crossing the Alps, or that Noah wore .in the ark. In fact, this particular pair, which was made around 1935, never did anything very historic. Rather, it symbolized the part the - blue - jeans played in the winning of the West. The company also presented the museum a pair of brown canvas pants (Circa 1870), which were the.first kind that old Levi Strauss made; a pair of brown duck pants, and a pair of 1964 blue jeans. Together,- they show the development of western style trousers, which in my opinion have been retrogressing. The brown ducks are more my style than the blue jeans.^ But I realize I'm', in the minority. As John C. Ewers, director of the Smithsonian's Museum of History and Technology, pointed out, blue jeans are an authentic American folk costume, worn by Indians as well as cowb&ys and by women as well as men. I believe the record will show that it was about the time that women started wearing blue jeans that things began going downhill. Levi's now are. obtainable in effete eastern models that are- preshrunk and have zippers. However, a company spokesman told me that westerners still prefer the original creation. He also told me why Levi's have copper rivets on the pockets. They were added after the California gold rush so that the miners could carry around nuggets without splitting their seams. And that's how the West was won. toujour Child And School By DAVID NYDICK United Press International Every once in a while it's valuable to discuss the successful student. After all, most students do not have difficulty with iheir school work. Does this mean there is no way for parents to lend assistance? The successful student has a variety of needs. Obviously, parents and teachers have correctly handled such students. The important thing is to continue doing so. The present pressures upon students and parents for such things as college entrance often causes problems for the normally successful student. A good student should know that he is doing a good job. He should have a feeling of confidence. If he" is constantly pushed to do better without any words of encouragement, it is very possible that some serious problems could develop. A student who lacks confidence often gives up. He tends t have the feeling that his efforts are useless. It is also possible that the student who doesn't have a feeling of success could become very nervous and frustrated as he puts greater and greater effort into his work. Remember, this kind of concentration cannot continue indefinitely. It is also important that a student sot become too self -confident. This too might cause problems. The over confident student could have a social problem in that his friends; might" dislike his attitude. He also might become careless or even might stop doing his work because he feels he can get away with less effort. Very often Such advice seems to' be -contradictory. On one hand, parents are told to encourage and compliment children and on the other they are told not to make children conceited- or over confident. Actually, the parent is being told to avoid extremes! Too much of either approach can cause problems. As in many other educational situations the happy medium is the correct answer. If a student is successful, why be concerned? There is no need, but apparently many parents of' good students are becoming anxious because of the extensive advice which they receive. The major purpose of this ' discussion is to reassure parents. If their -child has been successful, it is important that parents recognize it. Satisfied parents' are- more likely to have a satisfied child. FALL TO DEATH MOUNT VERNON, Ind.
