JOSEPHINE LOWMAN Diet, Work, Pressure Affect Condition Of Nails Tips For Washing, Waxing Your Car By HERB ALEXANDER Everyone has his favorite ."' car-washing tricks. Some •' swear by iaundry detergent •"•' and hot water, others prefer > '. special car wash solutions, while some are loyal to kero- •. sene and water. Whichever method you ., use, certain procedures are ^ i basic. Washing is only half . the job. To protect that fin_', ish, you should give it a coat of wax. That paint job may . look absolutely smooth, but ' it is filled with microscopic ; pores that are subject to damage from dirt, moisture ' and heat unless sealed. Waxing also saves work. ' Your care will need a thorough scrubbing before wax>• ing, but after waxing you • can clean off road dirt with ,i an occasional cold water wash. :i When a car needs rewax- '. ing, remove what's left of ,. the old coating with a good . wash job. Keep your car parked in the shade for at least one ' hour before you start wash. ing. The surface should be • cool. Cold water on a hot surface can damage the paint. Hose down your car to ' remove much of the loose ; dust and dirt. But don't use a high-pressure stream of water. Set the brakes before you start. The shoes pressed against the drums will keep the brake linings from getting wet, and also prevent • any freaX accident Always wet the car and wash it from the bottom up NOT from the top down. Water running down over a dirty surface will cause streaks impossible to remove. America dfeferirtyes! 100 0110 Proof. 100* Grain Niy- ral Spirtn. Product ol U.5.A. Clw Spno« DiiNHini Co.

Not likely. There's a layer ,of dead lacquer that should be removed with a before-waxing cleaner. • Some products combine a wax and cleaner. If you are using one of these, and you are satisfied with the result, you can stop after that one application. Wax in the shade or on a dull day. The car body should be cool. Wax a small area at a time. Use a water- dampened cloth pad to apply, then spread evenly with a dry cloth. Give wax a .few moments to dry, then polish. Be sure to read manufacturer's instructions. A wax finish in good condition will cause water to bead and roll off. But if your car is in the rain and the water just spreads out, chances are, it needs a new wax job. . Don't forget bumpers, hub caps and wheel rims. They need washing and waxing, too. Use chrome polish wherever needed, and protect the surface with a wax coating. Apply extra wax around the gas cap. Spilled gas will dull this area quickly. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Q. What causes fingernails to split and become soft? Could it be a lack of some vitamin?. A. Diet can play a part. Protein is the most important item of all. Be sure that your meals give you generous amounts of this and also the other essential vitamins and minerals. The main protein foods are dairy products, eggs., meats, fish, poultry and sea foods. Very often nail trouble is the result of exposure to detergents and all kinds of cleansing products'- The "wel work" is especially damaging. If the condition is severe I suggest thai you see a dermatologist. Remember, too, that jobs which subject the nails to repeated pressure, like using a typewriter, can cause them to break and split. .Q. Many women go without girdles these days but it seems to me that a lot of them would look much better with one. What effect might this Drama Set Oct. 14 To 16 PERU—"Inherit The Wind"will be presented Oct< N through 16 at the Peru High School Auditorium. The Ole Ofsen .Memorial Theatre. Inc., will present the drama by Jerome Lawrence and Robert. E. Lee at 8 p.m. each evening. The drama, which • ran for over two years in New York, is based on the Scopes evolution case in Dayion, Tenn., in 1925 in which Clarence Darrow and William Jennings were the leading figures. Tickets for the performances may be purchased at the de»r. have on (heir health? A. If a woman is the correct weight and has strong abdominal muscles, she will not need a girdle. She will be .better off without^one if she has good posture and'remembers to hold her lummy in. However, this delightful state- is unusual except in quite young women. Gravity and years have • an unfortunate impact on posture. Then, loo, the average woman gains weight as she becomes older an* few exer- • c'ise- enough to . keep thai natural girdle (the abdominal muscles) in good condition., Much fatigue comes from internal slumping. This can also cause backache. So, unless the .lady in question is the correct weight and 'has excellent posture, she is probably belter off wearing a girdle at least some'of the time ; There are many lightweight garments which give adequate support. Q. I am almost 16, but 1 look older, My problem is that I think I am~ too-hea^y'and'1 would appreciate your opinion. I am 5-feet 5-inches tall and weigh 125 pounds. My bust measures 35 inches, waist 2-1 inches and hips 36 inches. Should I go on a diet? A. You are hard to please! Your weight is perfect and your measurements are almpstso. If you insist on perfection do some hip-slimming exercises to take an inch from that measurement. For your copy of the free leaflet.
