Callforninns, followed by Texans, lead in the number of in- qutrires. Homesteadand and business opportunities head the list of topics on which information is sought. Many persons seem ready to sell all and leave for Alaska at the drop of a fur hat. This quote is typical: "1 could raise between $5,000 and $20,000 — would that be enough to start a business in Alaska?" Here are some other sample inquiries: A Texas housewife wants to homestead near a city where her husband can work as a plumber. A Florida couple— a nurse and advertising man— want to work at their skills and live permanently in Alaska. « One Maine family asks specific questions about housing, schools, hospitals and stores. Another couple plan to leave for Alaska within three weeks and the husband wishes to find work in the field of electronics. He will. An Arizona farmer asks about tillable land, growing season, average temperatures.

VANISHING AMERICANS According to figures compiled by the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association, the household servant is the vanishing American.

Fortunately American women have wonderful new appliances to replace the ever dwindling supply of household help.

It shows the appliance has been tested and approved for safety,' durability and performance. Conni Colum SCREENED SITTERS It'» important to know your children are in good; hands when you're away. One community organized a baby titters' school; why don't you? All graduates must pass final exam before being awarded a "professional" card. Fire department officials demonstrate and lecture what to do in case of fire; doctor gives advice for medical emergencies; trained nurse teaches baby care; Red Cross gives first aid tips and policemen give pointers on what to do when faced with unknown callers. Course ends with an exam of everything learned. MAILING TIPS Mailing Christmas gifts? Don't spoil a pen addressing parcels! A matchstick dipped in ink makes bold, clear print. Before you tie packages, dampen string or cord. As it dries, it will shrink. Knots will be made firm and safe. USf'Ul HOUSIPIANT Plant weds from lemons! Treat 'cm Ilk* any bouse plant. You'll have a pretty plant with large green leave*. Crushed leaves can be used for delicate flavoring in cookies, icings, cakes or any recipe calling for a touch of lemon.

HOLIDAY HELPER Almost Christmas! Folks have the holiday spirit already. But poor Mom, do you wonder how you'll ever manage the extra work and still enjoy this happy season? You can put out the "welcome mat" with pleasure, when you own a new gas dryer! It gives you sunny-bright washes easily and automatically. Set it and forget it. Tend to your cookie baking, gift wrapping and holiday decorating while your gas dryer whizzes through the wash. And your ironing is cut by one-third!

Anchor small gift with ribbons to bottom of balloon. Place in a large box; wrap as a large gift. When box is opened, balloon rises like a magic genie to the child's delight! THE CLEAN FLAME Prove to yourself gas is dean! Right now, place a saucer over a gas burner for a minute. Lift the saucer off; wipe it with a clean cloth. See? Not a trace of dirt or soot from the clear blue flame! Naturally this saves housework; your woodwork, curtains, walls keep free from dust, greasy films and ashes. Unlike other fuels which must be turned into gas by action from heat before a flame is created, natural gas is ready to go to work for you instantly. This miracle fuel is piped from Northern Natural Gas Company to your local gas company and into your home, for fuel that burns "clean as a whistle"! this Christmas "give them something to wear" "'YOU INKERS 'Satisfaction Alu-ay, Sterling Shopping Center :\\ so dear to her heart Scampers Christmas tV^ candle" ||j|/ sleepwearl^ f *$•• • i- ..« . ,*• YOUNG TIMER'S velveteen empire jumper "Chrlltmos Cozy warm white (lancl- Forty" ette sleepwear with Scampers Nylon Bouffant .
