A spokesman tor the glass company which installed Ihc second pane of glass agreed that the tempered glass can shatter for no apparent reason, lie added, however, t h a t when be installed your window, he was unable in find one spring clip, which keeps the glass in the center ; 'ol Ihe track as it slides up and down.

The Earl Scheib commercials have not used the words "any color" for several years, said Esther Safier. advertising director for Karl Scheib headquarters in Los Angeles. She said it still is t r u e t h a t they can paint any car for SI9.05. bill the color you wanl il painted may raise the price. Joe Hitler, manager of t h e Anaheim Street barl Scheib paiul shop, said different colors of painl are more expensive t h a n others, ami some color changes require more time (linn others. To cover your red car with white, he said, would require at least two coals o( p a i n t , w i l h drying time in between. "There is no way we could do t h a t in one day." Petition I have a 20-year-old son who just arrived here from the Philippines, lie was just six months old when 1 was naturalized as an American citizen. Could I petition now to have him naturalized? 1 was told he has to live here for five years before I could file the petition. C.A., Long licach. The requirements vary depending on the circum- ' stances of (be case. If, before your son was born, you lived in the United States for at least 10 years, five of which were after your 141h b i r t h d a y , be would he .considered a U.S. citizen at b i r t h . If you mcel this requirement, you can apply now on his behalf for a certificate of citizenship at the Immigration and N a t u - ralization Service, 300 N. Los Angeles St., Los Angeles. If you don't meet this requirement, but your son was i i d m i l i v d lo Ihe United States as a permanent resident, be still can get his U.S. citizenship, but he must live here for five years before he applies. If your son doesn't come under either category and hi- is here on a tourist visa, he f i r s t will have to get a standard visa In get permanent resident status and then live years bier, citizenship. As a citizen, you can apply now on bis Irebalf for a standard visa, and he will have a higher priority in getting one. Only so m a n y visas are allotted a n n u a l l y for each country! and there are many more applicants (ban there are visas. If he's here on a tourist v i s a , your son may not be able lo gel a standard visa even wilh his priority s t a t u s before bis tourist visa expires, and he would have to r e t u r n lo the Philippines anil wait there for his visa application to be. approved. If your son is single, he gels lirst priority visa status; if he's m a r r i e d , he'll get fourth priority and have to wait lunger for a visa. .-t.ssorJ.Krd Press If you're an elderly person on a fixed income, and properly taxes arc killing you, here's a way oul. A recently passed law allows low- and medium-income homeowners aged 62 or over to defer all or part of their properly tax bills, beginning with the payment due Ui'C. 10 or thereafter. The measure by A s s e m b l y m a n !·'red Chel. D-Ijjng' Beach, sets down llic following requirements lor those seeking deferrals: --Claimants must be 62 or older as of last Dec. 31. In the case of a married couple, only one spouse must be G2 or older. --Claimants m u s t o w n a n d occupy their homes at the t i m e of f i l i n f i and must h a v e at least a 20 percent equity in t h e property. Equity is the difference between what 'you owe on your mortgage and the assessed value of your home. If your home is worth $50.000 and you owe $20,000 on your home loan, your equity is $30,000. --Claimants must have a combined household income of $20,000 ur less. They also must h a v e taken h o m e o w n e r s ' l a x exemptions, w h i c h exclude '$1,750 of t h e assessed value from taxation. This last requirement is to prevent landlords from seeking tax deferral on their r e n t a l property. Property laxcs for those wlio quality will he deferred until they .sell their homes or otherwise cease ID occupy them. In the case of a death, the properly laxcs, plus 7 percent interest, will be collected from the estate. In the case of a sale or move, claimants will be assessed for the amount of the lax deferred, plus 7 percent interest. The intent, of the law is to allow elderly homeowners on f i x e d incomes to lake advantage of the increased v a l u e of their homes without having to sell or Iwrrow from a bank or loan company. Although claimants eventually must pay the taxes, wilh interest, they pay significantly less in interest (ban they would by laking out a second mortgage. Application forms are available at the local offices of assemblymen or from the Franchise Tax Board.
