They are. the same thing, a promise in writing usually stating that the product is free from defects in materials or in workmanship. They protect the consumer against having to pay for repairs or replacement if the product proves to be defective within a specified length of time. What docs a guarantee look like? If there is no visible guarantee on a product, ask for one. If advertising mentions a 'guarantee', a copy of it must be available in writing. Some guarantees appear on a label affixed, to the product. Appliance guarantees are often printed as part of the use-and-care book. Major appliances may have a separate guarantee certificate. Be sure you receive a copy when you buy a product. How can j/ou tell if a guarantee is a flood one? If the guarantee answers these questions to your satisfaction, the chances are that it is a good one: Is the entire product or only certain parts covered? Is repair labor included? Precisely who is responsible for warranty repairs? Who pays shipping charges? What is the warranty period on the entire • product, and docs it differ for particular components? Will a substitute be provided during in-warranty repairs, and if so, by whom? AQUARIUS Jon. 21 to Feb. 19 Everything looks new and fresh, in the Age of Aquarius.

Larry Kaerchor our Ca itor as ay Those of you contemplating the purchase of a new car should know that eighty-two per cent of all new cars are sold at substantial discounts according to an article in the 1971 Buying Guide issue of Consumer Reports. "Hardly anyone pays full list price for a new car" says The Buying Guide. "A recent Federal Trade Commission survey disclosed that 71 percent of new cars are sold at discounts of $200 to $800 and an additional 11 percent are sold at discounts of $800 to $1,000. "The size of the discount you can get varies, not only with the time of the year, but also with the car model, the size of the dealership, the state of the economy t and many other factors", reminds the Consumer Report Guide. "A high volume dealer may settle for a relatively low profit but rarely for much less than $200. There are those that say the best time to buy a car Is the last day of the month when the agency salesmen are trying to meet their monthly quota. And some believe the best time to buy is any day in January or February when the weather is miserable and the car buyers are few. The buying guide article points out that If you know how much the dealer paid for the car, you know how much bargaining room you have and provides the following markup formulas which It says were in effect during the early months of 1971 sales. (By law, each new car must have a list price sticker pasted to Its window). "To figure dealer's cos^, first subtract the transportation charge from the bottom line of the price sticker. Then, for a compact or one of the new domestic sub-compact cars, multiply by 85 and divide by 100. For an Hermediate, multiply by 81.5 and divide by 100. Then add the transportation charge back in. The price will be very .close to the dealer's actual cost and will enable you to bargain knowledgeably with him" concludes the Buying Guide Issue of Consumers Reports. Speaking of cars, I have a friend who says "The way my wife drives, if we were Arabs, she'd come home with a dented camel." THE HISTORY OF VALENTINE'S DAY Cynical bachelors and little Ixvvn aren't the (inly om»K whn think Valentine's Hay is for the l)irdn — even romantics once thought so. In (net. at om> time nearly everyone believed that February 14 was the day most birds milli-d And though fact proved fancy false, the day stayetl set aside—at least for lovebirds Though not exclusively. Light hear ted loafers used Valentine's Day as a peaceful day to sleep, They t*w>k no chance that a common belief — that the first person of the opposite sex you saw became your loved one for the year — came true. No heartaches or aggravation for them. In the late 1700s. sweethearts began penning and decora ting cards, some so elegant and Ix'iiutiful. that now they are virtually museum pieces. Today's husbands and wives, even those decades past the courting stage frequently exchange holiday gifts as a continuing token of affection. One sweetheart of a gift that scores a strike every time is a howling ball for the special sportsman or sportswoman in your life. A Dick Weber All-Pro howl- i ng ball, the professionals' choice, is a sure way to score with your favorite male. And for the gals, an 1 AMFIite ball in a striking choice of colors, is a sureshot favorite. However you observe it. Valentine's Day is a lovely time for the expression of love. And there's no time like tht' present to bestow the present!

C-ara of I wish to thank the members of the Rescue Division of the Forest Park Fire Department for their kindness and gentleness which they showed me on the day they took me to the Loyola Hospital.
