SC -July 27,1975 How to BUY , Gasoline Prices On Rise By Sidney Margolius Coa.tu.mer Expert for Sunday Gazette-Mail WASHINGTON - High food prices, now rising again, continue to be the working family's main problem this summer. Even the hope that food prices will drop this fall has diminshed as the result of new grain purchases by the Russians. Prices of wheat, corn and soybeans all have jumped in recent weeks. In just one week in mid-July wheat went from $3.05 a bushel to $3.70. soybeans from ?5.18 to ?5.65. Wholesale prices of sugar, which recently have declined, went up twice in one recent week. The main effects on vou will be that bread prices may rise again after the recent small price cuts of typically 2e a pound, and meat and poultry now sporting high tags, probably won't drop as much ·this fall as had been expected. * * * ANOTHER SQUEEZE on moderate families is the new increase on gasoline this summer and the prospects for still higher prices. Gasoline now costs close to 60c a gallon in most towns; even more in some of the larger cities. August is a month of home furnishing sales, giving you a chance to buy furniture, bedding, rugs, linens and curtains and drapes at reduced prices. Rugs and carpets: Carpeting made of Kathv Moore. Dana Haynes Wed «.' ' *-· MRS. D.L. HAYNES . . . former Kathy Moore Miss Kathy Sue Moore, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Moore, became the bride of Dana Lee Haynes, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Haynes, all of Kanawha Two Mile, on Saturday in Tuppers Valley Baptist Church. The Rev. Herman Gandee officiated and music was provided by Barbara Haynes and Janet Clendenin. The bride was given in marriage by her brother. Pam Barrett was maid of honor and Missy Koontz was flowergirl. The bridegroom's brother, Dale Haynes, was best man. * * * FOLLOWING A reception at the Haynes home, the couple left for a wedding trip to Pipestem State Park. They will live at Kanawha Two Mile. Mrs. Haynes will graduate in the fall from American School. Her husband graduated from Sissonville High School and attended college for two years. synthetic fibers is one product that has gone up very little in the past ten years. Still, women often voice concern over carpeting they bought, mainly because they have been led to expect too much, or they bought an unsuitable weave or color. Some complain that the pattern of polypropolene. rugs may become crushed and "walked out": that plush pile carpeting doesn't have uniform shading; that textured-loop carpeting looks dirty after a while even though it may last for years. The real problem is that if you look for unusual decorating interests or appearance, you may have to accept certain disadvantages including extra work and cleaning. In general, deep pile and shag rugs give long wear but are harder to clean because of imbedded dirt. Sculptured or carved-pile rugs also are harder to clean than level pile. Fringed rugs also can cause a little more work if you use a power nozzle since the high suction pulls the fringe into the brushes. A room-size rug costs least since it doesn't involve the extra yardage in insulation needed for wall-to-wall carpeting. A "room-fit" carpet costs more than a room-size rug since the "room-fit" carpt- ing covers most of the floor space. But "room-fit" is not permanently attached to the floor, and so provides more flexibility to use than wall-to-wall * » * A ROOM-SIZE rug can, of course, be shifted into equalized wear. This is especially helpful in a room that serves as a traffic lane or one with a TV set. Rugs also can be sent out for cleaning to the plant, which is usually more effective than cleaning on the floor. Room-fit carpeting also can be sent out for plant cleaning, and shifted around to equalize wear, but not if it has been cut to follow indentations in the wall. Authorities around the country have been cracking down on some of the high pressure selling tactics used by some rug dealers. In a typical case, a Federal Trade Commission judge criticized a dealer for advertising "3 rooms quality wall-to-wall nylon pile carpet for $109." The judge said that the carpeting was of "poor appearance and condition" and really was used to trade up customers to more expensive carpeting. Significantly, the advertised carpeting was available in only 2 to 4 colors, while other carpets shown by the salesman came in 6 or 7. Another trick this dealer and others have used is to advertise prices by the square foot instead of by the square yard usually used in carpet advertising. As we warned before, there are nine square feet in a square yard. If an ad says a $1.50 a square foot, the real cost per square yard comes to $13.50.
