By ANDY LANG ..AP Newsfcatures Q. -- I intend to nail 1 by 3 furring strips to the beams in our basement ceiling and then staple ceiling tiles to the furring strips. How far apart should the strips be? A. -- It depends on the size of the tiles you purchase. If they arc (lie popular 9-inch size, then the ccrtter of each strip of wood should be exactly 9 inches from the center of the next strip. It is important that these measurements be exact and equally., important to remember, that the measuring be done fr'orii the centers of the strips, not from the edges. The s t r i p s nearest the walls necessarily will be less than 9 inches from the walls, barring the coincidence that they come out even. ' For the sake of appearance, the last line of tiles at the four walls should not be less than one-half a tile in width. If you determine that it will not come lout properly, start the first | furring strip a short distance from where you origianally ntended. You can do this only f you carefully pre-measure everything. A simple way to do this is by laying out a line of lies on the floor until the Border tiles are where you want .hem. Then use the... sa; arrangement on the ceiling.

The most common is to put a base coat of paint, allow it to dry, then apply a different color with a small brush. The second coat is put on in a kind of dragging motion, with very little paint,on _the brush. The brush is dipped into the paint, then wiped so that very little paint is left on the bristles. In another method, a coat of .eave both colors showing Before you attempt either of ;hese systems on good furniture, try them out first to determine whether they give you the kind of results you wish. is thoroughly dried, a coat of another color is spread on the [irst.

Hippie Season in Afghanistan By ARNOLD ZEITLIN AiuciatMl Preji Writer KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) "Warning!" cries the gaily colored sign on the bulletin board of the American consul's office here. "Death Penalty in Iran for Trafficking in Any Narcotics!" As on a supermarket bargain poster, the numbers 16 and 17 are crossed out ostentatiously. "26 Shot to Death to Date! One American on Trial! Don't Be the Next Please!" The warning is a harbinger. The hippie season is on' in Afghanistan. The sign is for the benefit of young Americans who, now that the weather here is warmer and schools at home are closing, will stream by the dozens daily into (he American Embassy, demanding mail, money from home, and official U.S. tea and sympathy. Braces for Spring "A kook a week," said Alford Cooley, young vice consul in charge, who is ordinarily sympathetic but now is bracing for a season of springing shaggy Americans from jail and offer- 'ng medical aid to types similar to one bearded customer who told a predecessor: "I've jusl been bitten by my pet wolf. I think he's got the rabies." The sign is also recognition of the link between the hippie wave and the narcotics trade which has become a worldwide problem. Thousands of the footloose young are lured to Afghanistan and other parts of central and south Asia by easy access Ho cheap hashish and marijuana, as well as harder goods such as heroin. Those caught have said they planned to use the goods themselves at home or sell it to pay for college tuition.' A $10 purchase of one pound in Kabul is worth more than $1,000 in New York. P a k i s t a n , Afghanistan's immediate eastern neighbor, University, Ohio, is a course in traveling for three months. One visiting sophomore said he would get credit on the diary he is writing. Sooner or later, visitors to Kabul, hippie or "world traveler," get to the Khyber 'restaurant, owned by the Ministry of Finance. It serves the best Steak in town for about 60 cents. Shaking his long blind locks, a young man who said he was a sculptor from Chicago waiting out a creative block, estimated a traveler could exist for $20 a month in Kabul. Topic A among the travelers is narcotics. "I used tq smoke two years ago," said the sculptor, fingering the love beads at has ordered stiffer money re-| his neck. "Not any more." quiremenls for the entry of per sons "commonly known as hippies or beatniks." There is no i evidence the decree is being en' forced, particularly, since Americans need no Pakistan visa for a visit of 30 days or less.
