B-12 Journal end Courier, Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana Wednesday, February 9, 1972 People, Products Profile Firm Replaces Tot Car Seats Where Did Tour Money Go? Shopping Is a Science Already, He Can Put His Dad in the Shade ministration said the 9,600 Cosco seats were among more than 55,000 that fail to meet new safety standards. Three other manufacturers that also agreed to take corrective action, NHTSA said, are Frank F. Taylor, Frankfort, Pride Trimble, Burbank, and Buckeye Plastics Reyn-oldsburg, Ohio. Cosco said the seat has been modified by lowering it three inches and new models are being distributed to replace the others at no charge. Replacement shipments are now being made to distributors and to about 25 owners who sent their old seats to Cosco direct.

In Washington, the National Highway Traffic Safety Ad COLUMBUS, Ind. (UPI) Cosco Household Products Division of Hamilton Cosco, announced here it is replacing two models of children's car seats, with new models meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards. The announcement said Model 13-168 and 13-169 failed to meet requirements on General Motors Corp. vehicles using all-foam seats. The firm explained that at the time it was developing the model, GM was on strike and Cosco was not able to have a model of the new GM seat which like other car makers had used metal springs with padding in the past.

The seat being designed was made to enable a baby to look out the car window. But it turned out that the seat was three inches taller than it should have been, and the baby sat high enough so that when he went forward In a stop the foam seat would not support the baby seat. mm MM Fa Marsh Sales YORKTOWN Marsh Su- permarket sales for the 40 weeks ended Jan. 6 again set a record, the food chain's president, Don E.

Warren long has been one of the area's leading amateur golfers, but Mrs. Ardapple said her son "hung up his golf clubs for three years" following his father's untimely death and his assuming management of the firm. In moving into the era of computerized storage and moving data, the company has expanded to a fleet of 12 trucks and four warehouses.

Among them were Fourteenth and Cincinnati streets, second headquarters of the firm; another atop the Five Points hill, the third, at company headquarters at 1128 Main and fourth, a Canal Road building that formerly housed Better Brands, Inc. Schooling for joining the firm, the fourth generation Ardapple, after graduation last June from Indiana University, joined Allied's management trainee program at the company's headquarters In suburban Chicago. By the time he decided to return here to follow family footsteps, he had been transferred to the worldwide firm's international division. In one way, the son of Mr. and Mrs.

CUNNIFF AP Bulnu Analyst The marketplace often Is an arena where the amateur meets the professional; where the buyer equipped with little more than desire and money confronts the seller, armed with the latest selling techniques. In almost all endeavors, we consider contests between amateur and professional to be unfair.

Now we are extending that concept to the marie where the consumer move attempts to strengthen the buyer's power and restrain that of the seller. But no amount of effort by government institutions, educators and consumer advocates is going to permanently improve your market place position unless you yourself make more scientific those shopping habits that were formed so casually. Shopping is not nearly so much an art as it is a science. Everyone is familiar with at least one individual who somehow seems to get one spectacular buy after another. Somehow, it appears, that persons is always in the right place at the right time.

Question that person closely and youll find he or she acts more like a scientist, hardly trust to instinct at all but relying on precise knowledge of sales, products and selling techniques. You must do the same. Understand, for example, that a sale is not always a total sale. Some items night be red-tagged but there in the midst of the markdowns is a full priced item waiting to be grabbed by an unwary shopper. Never forget either that prices are highest when demand is highest and that, conversely, you can extract a real bargain in the off-season.

Remember too that the most popular of competitive items is not necessarily the best Avoid impulses. Never go shopping without having a clear idea of what you want or need. Preferably, have a checklist, especially at the supermarket, where little impulse items add up to great bills. This is not to say that you shouldn't roam through the stores to see what is available. That's idea shopping, and it's how many people obtain their information on availability and relative values.

But, den't confuse idea shopping with buying. When you go to buy, know what you are going to buy. If you go on a shopping expedition "just looking for something to buy," you'll find it. You might also regret it. Don't pay for services you don't need.

The company, since its start In 1896 in the horse-and-dray days, has in its 76 years been headed by but three men. The Joe Ardapple Moving named for its founder, first was located in the area later occupied by Jefferson High School at Ninth and Brown streets. In recalling history of the firm, one of the city's oldest, Mrs. Walter Ardapple said that among the prized relics retained to trace history of the company was an anvil. It was a main tool of the black-smithing task of shoeing the horses that pulled the Ar-apple drays.

Mrs. Ardapple Is the widow of Joe's son, Walter, under whose guidance the firm expanded rapidly with development of highways, improvement of trucking and linking of movers into such national networks as Allied, of which the Ardapple firm is one of the original links.

GI Bill lob Training Plan Is Outlined Everett E. Closson, manager of the Lafayette office of the Indiana State Employment Service, advises local employers that jobs requiring special skills can be filled by returning Vietnam veterans who can be trained to job specifications using allowances available under the GI Bill. He said employers hiring and training veterans need not pay a journeyman's salary before the veteran is fully qualified. He urged any employer with job openings which require six months to two years of training, or apprenticeship training which may exceed two years, to apply for approval through the Indiana State Employment Service. Closson said that to meet approval, apprenticeship programs must conform to standards published by the Secretary of Labor.

Other on-the-job training programs must offer a well defined job the trainee may achieve, a beginning wage at least half of the target salary, training to last from six months to two years, a provision for related instruction when needed, and adequate course content with a qualified instructor. An individual training agreement is required for each veteran. The Department of Veterans Affairs also must approve veteran training proposals, Closson added. Toyota Price Hike Denied WASHINGTON (AP) The Price Commission has rejected a request by Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., to raise the price tag of Japanese Toyota cars. A commission official, in announcing the decision, said the firm's argument for the price hike was rather specious because it failed to list a specific price increase.

Toyota had asked for the raise on grounds that one goal of President Nixon's economic stabilization program is to reduce the volume of imports to the United States and that, if Toyotas were more expensive, fewer Americans would buy them. The government has ruled that price increases are allowable if the international realignment of currencies makes them necessary. FOUNTAIN COUNTY LIVESTOCK COMM. CO. FRIDAY AT 1:30 P.M.

Some grocery stores special-. ize in shop-at-home service. You merely call in your order and it arrives at a specified time. Wonderful. But a study made in one store showed the customer paid-about 20 per cent for this service.

When you pay for your insurance on a monthly or quarterly basis instead of in a lump sum you pay for the When you use the services of a telephone operator instead of dialing your long distance calls you pay more. Consider some less obvious ones: A daily shoeshine and a tip for service instead of shining your own; whole life insurance when inexpensive term insurance would do; a house call by the doctor instead of a visit to his office; a box seat instead of the bleachers; a toll road instead of a freeway; prepared meal instead of cooking. Don't use short-term credit needlessly. This is a credit as well as a service economy and you will find easy terms offered at every term. This presents the dangers of loading up on items that you really, cannot afford and needlessly paying credit charges that range around 18 per cent.
